Very interesting stage. Post-lunch wickets are quite a familiar phenomenon. THey fall son after lunch.

If Aussies don't let it happen, the rest will take care of itself.

The spinners after lunch will decide the fate of this game... I still think Bangladesh has a pretty good chance.

i hope thats true, but this is australia they can't lose. i dream that i am wrong...

Let the Aussies eat only RICE for the lunch. They will fall asleep and will fail to see the turn of Rafique and Enamul.

I rekon the Aussies won't want to drag this game on any longer than they have to. 276 runs in 65 overs works out to be 4.25 runs an over. And that is generally what the rate they have been scoring at in the last 5 years - maybe a touch lower. So it seems this game could well be won or lost today.

If we are able to put them on the back foot, take some important wickets (e.g. Hayden, Hussey, Ponting), then that may well change (chasing at 4.25 an over). We really need to work hard. Mortaza is lacking venom at the moment, and Shahadat, while he is trying hard, he is maybe trying to bowl too many short delieveries. Ok, the odd bouncer now and then can be lethal, but it shouldn't be overused - and more so on this pitch, where you have to dig it in shorter than halfway just to gather any bounce (which then gives the batsman ample time to rock back and pull it away - like we saw Hussey do).

Regardless, I'm sure this game still has plenty more twists and turns left in it. Remember, where there is a Mohali, there is an Edgbaston! ;)

Rice with some "dyle" would be much better. If you know what I mean

Baundule

then some supply of DAL may work...should be tasty with the Kangaroo meat :)

Anyway guys, there is nothing to be frustrated. Even if they make 200 without losing a wicket, I will still hope we win and that's very much possible. We have nothing to lose; just to fight hard till the end.

No way aussies can finish this game today.

if the game finishes today, then it will be in favor of BD tigers. mark my word for it.

I can tell you that winning the game by today (by scoring at 4+ run rate) is not something on aussie's mind. That will be quite dangerous to them. After all that have happened so far they won't underestimate BD at least while this test is going on

as much as i would love to stay up and click away on the refresh tab on cricinfo, out of laziness and the dejection of waiting for the inevitable, i say goodnight. for the 199 odd viewers who're enjoying the onlinemedia.in stream, enjoy! regardless of the outcome of the match -as far as the big picture is concerned - we'll have one less critic to challenge our test status!

Spitty this is not going to be Multan thats for sure. Because we will end up in the winning side ;)

The game just started and our spinners have just bowled two overs. Let them bowl 50 odd over and you will find a completely different scenario.

Bangladesh is winning the match. But its really a shame for Bangladesh which should have been a comfortable win, they have already made it difficult. We really need to know how to bat in the 2nd innings. Its really not possible always win matches after such a poor show in the second innings.

Aussies won't take it like that. They know it is dangerous to accelerate on this wicket...They'll take it easy and win by lunch on the fifth day. I'd love to see them today though.

I won't question it, as once granted it stays. (Zimbabwe is a totally different matter.)

One good match - and that too not won - once in a while is not what you need. You need wins and consistency. Bangladesh has to go a long way.

I am not being disrespectful of Bangladesh. To solve a problem, you have to first define it.

Anyway, this has been one helluva test.

In saying that, most of the wickets in their first innings came about through excessive defending (e.g. Hayden, Hussey, Ponting, Clarke, Lee, etc - you get the point). You need to remember this! All I meant was, it is entirely possible that this game could be won or lost today - not that it would be!

And yes, as someone mentioned, if they do go for the kill today, it could very well work to our advantage - but you can't say that it will. Regardless, think of it this way, if you had the chance to finish a game one day earlier, you would not actively chase it, but if the situation arose where you were in a position to do so, you would - especially for Australia - they are fatigued as is, and would love nothing more than to have an extra rest day between now and the next test.

Game on! :)

They might want to forget cricket and join music permanently under the leadership of Lee;) He is a good musician :)

it will be a pity if they forget even when we loose. it will only mean that they will think of us as minnows whatever we do. i don't quite understand why do we have to beat AUS to prove that we improved (that will be great btw :D )? isn't it quite evident?

It all boild down to this now. the equations simple. if our spinners persist and get some doubts in the aussie batsmen's mind we will win. 270 is still a long long way away. we will get our chance today. whether our boys have the nerve and self-belief to grab the opportunities is the more pertinent question.

Guys don't forget we're playing Australia the best side in the world, arguably one of the greatest of all time. The trademark of a great team is the ability to bounce back after shocking disaster or any dire situation and that's exactly what the aussies hve done in this game. There's no shame in losing to a great team like this rather there's lot of pride in the way our boys fought and dominated the first half of the game.

I just want to see our team fight till the end and not give up at any stage. Losing to this aussie side by innings has become almost acceptable standard these days even for a good side. So nothing can undermine our acheivement in this game. I'd not be dissapointed if we lose in a respectable way such as by 3/4 wickets as opposed to 6/7.
I just want our boys to play with grit and determination and nothing-to-lose attitude against their formidable opponent and take the game to a close finish. Our team is definitely headed in the right direction with the immense improvement they've shown in the previous few series as well as this one so far. If they keep up the good work and keep making progress
at this rate they'll earn lot of respect and admiration from cricket fans around the globe and do us proud. So don't lose hope. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Go Tigers.

australia are being REALLY cautious here, and playing REAL slow...it will be quite difficult for their batsmen to stay at the crease for long if they are scoring at this rate, especially with the pitch generating some turn for the bowlers. a loss of concentration for even a fraction of a second might make a huge difference; let's just hope it happens frequently.

The pitch is giving us nothing. There are alot of cracks, but they havn't actually opened up as yet. If anything, this pitch is bouncing alot more today, then it did on the second day. And there is alot less variable bounce. It's really hard to fathom that a pitch can improve as the game wears on. But thats exactly what seems to be happening here! :confused:

I'm sorry, but with an attitude like that, we'll get nowhere. You can see on our players faces that alot of them think as you do. Yes, its not looking good, but we still have 193 runs up our sleeves - thats no small thing. It'd be great if some of you could reserve your judgements until this game is well and trully over. Theres still a long way to go - anything could happen. That said, it isn't looking good at this stage: these two appear to be set and it for the long haul.

That’s because the notion “Participating in the game is more important than winning” is over. We have been playing cricket for 5 years. Player like Ash may be 21 but they have been playing international cricket for 4 years. We had them, had them hard, but it is only our irresponsible batting got us here. There is no excuse to loose 5 wickets yesterday when we were at the top of the game.

yeah but remeber, 1st innings will never win us a match.

we scored over 400 vs India, over 300 vs England and over 300 vs Sri lanka.

all in 1st innings, but we still lost becuase we collapsed in 2nd innings.

This isnt much improvement if you ask me, becuase we played against the best sides in the world and i agree we can compete but not enough.

test cricket is a great test of characters. I see no reason to give up hope. The progress in the game is not linear and one wicket or two will open the floodgates. Just have patience and see.

Yeh, it was a good ball. But it pitched just on leg stump, then hit his pad on leg stump aswell. It was abit like how he got out in the first innings, but it wasn't close enough to give. At least Masri knows where he should be bowling now (and if he doesn't by now, then he never will).

Not by a long way. The opposition is Australia, but when you have them staring down the barrel at 93/6, and eventually finish with a first innings lead of 157 runs, then you need to do a lot more to not only hang in there, but to really assert yourself. We didn't do that today.

Well, Bangladesh was actrually riding one one good performance, and that was Shahriar's 138 in the first innings. Bashars almost always scored wll and his 70+ was nothing unusual. What really made a difference was that 138. That put the Ausasies under pressure and they had a partial batting collapse too under pressure. Bat all that is behind Athe Aussies now. So

I am not very harsh; but in international matches, you can not repeat same mistakes again and again. I am still hopeful about winning; but if lost, as aftermath Basher certainly has some responsibility to take: praise for the first innings batting (even with the ugly way of his getting out just before tea), hate for his stupid run out and for his inability to think differently when nothing is going right.

Mr-Cricket
April 12, 2006, 05:27 AM
Bashar seems incapable of thinking outside the square. He goes for tried and tested methods time after time, and the only time he is prepared to go for a risk is the the over before a break - e.g. bringing on Ashraful for the last over of the second day - thereby giving Gilchrist 11 runs. He should be doing more to stop these unnecessary singles, he should be doing more to lift the spirits of our players. He must experiment more with his bowling line-up.

I find it hard to believe that our fast bowlers arn't even experimenting going around the wicket to the left handed batsman. Gilchrist has been out cheaply to deliveries bowled around the wicket, outside off stump for the last 12 months, and yet no one has adopted this strategy! I mean at the very least give it a shot - if it doesn't work out - at least you tried! Another worry is that our fielders arn't backing up - they arn't walking in with the bowler, and are often caught napping when guys like Hayden nudge one through for a quick single.

And this may sound trivial, but one crucial mistake no one has picked up on, but the commentators are mentioning from time to time - our slips cordon throughout this match has been standing at least 1-2 metres too deep, and on the odd occasion someone edges one through, it falls short of the fielder. Its inexcusible, and he should have realised after initially batting on this pitch for several hours that there was not need to stand soo deep in the slips cordon. At one stage, and I kid you not, Harsha Bogle said "He has a great view from there, doesn't he?"

How are all these things going unnoticed? :eek:


I can't believe they gave Haydo's out just then! That was way too close to call. :)

More or less, I agree with you. Today only four bowlers he tried, there is nothing wrong to try with Aftab, but he is not doing till now. Some time he really seems like lack of variation or thought.

Give this responsibilty to SN.. although very young and very raw.. i m sure. he will be a much better attacking player with guts than Bash. We should realyl stop continueing this senior junior concept in cricket and take what is better .

good to see that we are getting wickets so late in the day. two/three more today, and we drive. should be difficult, though.

When Hyden and Ponting bats lots of captains loose their thinking!! I got some problem with Basher's batting but he did nothing wrong with captaincy!! Look Martyn goes!!

btw, anyone watching the game - is bashar attacking the new batsman? does he have him surrounded? if not, then i say we sack him from captaincy.
