Reading the latest postings, it appears most of us have already given up hope for a Bangladesh Victory. This is very natural because we have been hurt so many times by our team. But as a Die Hard fan of Bangladesh Cricket Team I am not ready to give up hope. I think getting 95 on a 5th day pitch with Rafiq & Enam bowling will be a very difficult ask even for the likes of Ponting, Gilcrist and the remaining Aussie batsmen. All we need now is one or two early breakthroughs tomorrow morning and we will be back in the fight.

People, please don't give up hope ... remember, these are the players who scored 427 against the Aussies in the first innings and bowled the Aussied out for 269 in thier first innings in the last few days. So all that is required is another such inspired effort from the team and we got the victory.

My observation was, the team itself has given up hope of winning, or even giving a fight, from the very first over of the Aussie 2nd innings. It was clear from the body languages of some of the players.

Anyway, 95 will not be very easy, I agree. But my prediction is Australia will get there by losing two more wickets, at most.

I so much wish that my prediction doesn't come true...

It will depend on the nature of the pitch and Bashar's captaincy.

If the pitch assists the spinners (which was not there today except last 30 minutes) aussies will reach the target before lunch. Othedrwise they have to fight hard to restrict BD win.

as much as i concern there are reasons behind giving up the impossible hope. though for your reference, we would lose by 4 wickets.
