Reflecting on the overall match situation, Bashar said: "We must survive until tea on Monday if we want to prove our worth."

More quotes:

"It is a great feeling to score your first century against the world's best team," said the 20-year-old opener.

"It also feels good when you realise that your runs have gone a long way in the team's cause."

Basher has got small small targets.After he achieves that he looks forward for more. :)

Bashar is realistic in his thoughts.........with only the specialist batsmen and lower order in business.......surviving past-lunch would be a daunting job! Hope they can do that. Although our record is against us!:umm:

Pura duidin batting korar moto team BD ekhono hoynai (even their score might excedd 500, but I dont think they can bat for 2 days in a test), so that leaves us with a question, Is this how you play a test match?

I am not being pessimistic or anything, I enjoyed the onslaught yesterday as every1 else did, but seriously is this how you play this version of the game?

I see a real sign of a leader in the statement from Bashar. He is setting a challenging but desireable/acheivable target for the whole team. Same is true for what Shahriar has said.

On a flat track we were able to get the runs, on a more difficult track we would have been 185 all out if we played like that. You adjust to the situation and play accordingly. Having runs to defend is a sound strategy when, as you say, we are not mature enough to grind out 2 days play.

We could lose the remaining wickets before lunch, chances are we will. To get to 500 they will need to bat until tea which will be quite hard with 5 wickets left and no one threatening another big score yet. But it's a great goal to have and we will dance when the team surpasses it!

I cudnt see the full day's play however i did see the match till lunch break when our rr was sth like 5. during the whole session i did not find nething wrong in BD's aproach to the game ... absolutely perfect .... just bcoz it is a test match doesnt mean u block all day long .... they scored runs wen a bad ball was given or wen they saw the opportunity for it..... nothing wrong in tht .... to win a test match or compete doesnt mean to play ultra defensive...... we hv to be careful not to play rash shots ... however if given opportunities we shud take them.... nd if tht means scoring at 6 an over ... tht shud be ok ...if u hv runs in the scoreboard tht is all tht matters at the end of the day.... i wud take 355/5 neday over 150/0 in one whole day's batting .... tht wud mean we r underestimating ourselves and r just playing a dead game for a draw.... thts just my two cents on this topic.....

yea I understand ur point Shahriar bhai and if u ask me I'll also pick 355/5 in the 1st day over 150/0.

I couldnt watch the entire game (and had to listen to the commentary only in Paltalk) and I lost count of the number of dropped catches or missed chance by the Aussies. Were there a lot of drops or was I misinterpreting those 'wild cries' and comments in that public chat room?

He is spot on Tea is the target. Or at least 45-50 overs.
Inshallah from that many overs we can get at least another 150 runs to get our main target of 500 runs. Then we can have a session to to bowl at them giving our bowlers the rest bite of the night.

Also if we can get some of thier wickets tomorrow that would be great too. As after tomorrow the pitch will really turn. Also both sides of the wicket saw action so there were foot marks on both sides.

Lets see.... can the the dream come to can we beat them .. I remember when we lost to Pakistan by 1 wicket. Let us be vistorious in this test. If we get 500 I do not see why we can not be victorious.

Thier batsman are suspectable to spin we know that, will Enamul be hero, Will they attack us knowing that we have huge lead on the board.

I sincerly hope Bashar attacks them, he is known for his conservative fielding.

Edited on, April 9, 2006, 7:59 PM GMT, by ialbd. I am not biased, Honestly speaking we played well not beacuse of luck. Yes Warne missed a very difficult chance off Shahriar, and Wkeeper missed a chance of Bashar. Thats it! Its not like do you remember when WI played BG and edwards and co missed hatful of chances ! Was not like that give credit where its due. Aussies did not miss sitters they were hard chances.
