Shafin, I didn't know that you would post your match thread so early.

Anyway, the old Bangla/English tricks doesn't work properly with vbulletin. If you can fix your thread, then moderators are welcome to delete mine. By this time, if you have something to take from my thread, then go ahead. I've added BBC Weather in the weather section.

if we can give them a good fight in this one as well (not necessarily as good as the previous one), i'll say we've improved our consistency in that we don't follow up a good performance with an equally heart-breaking one anymore.

but then we don't have anymore tests in a year or so. sucks. big leap backwards.

Adding a Bangla version is nice, but unfortunately it has been serving no purpose so far, and in this case it will only make the thread unnecessarily long.

Edit: I've just made a more compact version.

I expect Symonds to play, if the ball keeps low the big fella is gonna have a tough time. Maybe ACB might give a Lee a rest and let Bracken play but I don't expect them to use 5 bowlers. :(

All indications are that it will be a seamers wicket (Which seems kind of odd considering Warne is likely to pull out through injury, and Rafique is on a roll). Do you think we should include Rasel in the XI or draft in Razzak: if Enamul has to pull out?

AsifTheManRahman
April 15, 2006, 08:18 AM
well if it is indeed a seamer's wicket, then i think we should be playing our pace trio. rasel could come in as a handy first change bowler, and might be crucial in getting breaks through at the appropriate times.

razzak isn't test material yet; he's not bad for checking the flow in odi's, and may grab a wicket or two here and there as well, but i don't really see him bothering the aussie batsmen, and he is definitely not good enough to replace enamul.

as a matter of fact, we should be playing rasel even if enamul's doing ok health-wise, seeing that the latter is the kind of bowler who relies a lot more on assistance from the wicket, unlike say rafique, who keeps things tight and doesn't really get that much turn.

April 15, 2006, 09:33 AM
Any news for BD XI for the second test? hope Tushar Imran,Nafis Iqbal,Alok Kapali and Syed Rusel are in the team and Ashraful,Aftab,Javed Omar and Sahadat Hussain are out of the team just for this test match.

April 15, 2006, 09:46 AM

sireza
April 15, 2006, 10:45 AM
Got Only one wicket in first test therefore trying Syed Rusel is no harm and he posses some good both way swing and moreover he will be the new package for the Australian.

AsifTheManRahman
April 15, 2006, 10:54 AM
why not play all three of them together?

although i was against picking shahadat for the first test, he has proven me wrong. all i can think of now is more pacer-friendly conditions, and ponting getting hit on the helmet in the previous match.

2+2=5

SMHasan
April 15, 2006, 11:00 AM
why bring changes in this combination? This team played good cricket in the first test. Why people are so eager to drop shahadat or enamul? Shahadat bowled well he intimidated the aussies and got the aggression as well.Enamul didn't got many wickets but dropping him won't be a good idea where chittagang pitch will be slow as well. So no more changes please. Let the guys enjoy their game.

If you wana do any good to our cricket then suggest something that would prevent the second innings collapse.

Shafin
April 15, 2006, 11:21 AM
no one is eager to drop Enamul,it seems like he picked up an injury

al Furqaan
April 15, 2006, 11:47 AM
if enamul is out...3 pacers: mash-rajib-russel

there should be no doubt about that...if there is, one must question our selectors gillu.

if we go with the trio (God, it feels great to say that at last), should russel open since he struggles bowling with the new ball? rajib can be first change. plus we would maintain our left-right opening combo.

thoughts?

Sovik
April 15, 2006, 12:03 PM
don't know how the wicket will behave. if it helps the pace bowler then we should go with rajib, mash and rajib

That will be a real bad decision. Seamers will make aussies life easy. We need at least two spinners to take the main load of bowling. I would prefer Rana over RazzaQ but Razzaq ia also fine.

If we bowl with 3 pacer and 1 spinner aussies rr will be 4.5 at least.

News TV news: Enamul has injured his finger. He's a suspect today. Team will wait till the last minute for him before declaring the playing IX. Hope enamul makes it. He's a match winner.

Traditionally Chittagong wicket is pacer friendly but that was the wicket of M A Aziz stadium. This time test will be played in Divisional Stadium which has hosted only one test against Srilanka. Its difficult to comment dpending on that single test. I think the wicket will be similar like Fatullah.

Don't be crazy man, why do we need to change the XI? And changing Shahadat for Rassel .... that's very funny. Have you been waching the games or just reading the newspaper for scores?!?! Rassel do not even come close to Shahadat in test ... Shahadat is a far better material. One day may be a different story...

According to pointing this pitch will take more spin than the one in Dhaka but according to CI and other sources it'll be more pacer friendly as well.

Mitchell Johnson is higly rated by the aussies and according to cricinfo 'Mitchell Johnson is Australia's most exciting fast-bowling prospect since Brett Lee first dyed his roots. He's quick, he's tall, he's insanely talented, but most of all, he's a left-armer'.

He has played only two ODI and still wicketless with economy rate 7.66. I do not thin such an inexperienced new ball bowler will be successful in a very unfamiliar sub continent wicket.

Another very important thing is if we want to convey the sign of progress to the world cricket we have to play well against any bowler who is playing international cricket. No point being afraid before playing anyone.

yes, i support you completely.
we have to avoid playing 3 seamers:cool:

AsifTheManRahman
April 15, 2006, 03:34 PM
well yes, rasel IS pretty bad with the old ball, but then he better get used to bowling with the shine off, cuz with his lack of pace and shahadat coming up, he will be at best a first change bowler in the long run.

AsifTheManRahman
April 15, 2006, 03:36 PM
yes, i support you completely.
we have to avoid playing 3 seamers:cool:

the only problem here is that we don't have someone good enought o be able to bother the aussies other than rafique or enamul. if one of them is sitting out, i don't know how well whoever it is that is brought in will do.

I think this is good in a away if Bangaldesh wants to make a good innings they should play senisble. Its a good chance for Ash,Omar,Mushud,Aftab to get in form for the ODIs. I think at lunch we should be 2/80+ at worst.

Any news for BD XI for the second test? hope Tushar Imran,Nafis Iqbal,Alok Kapali and Syed Rusel are in the team and Ashraful,Aftab,Javed Omar and Sahadat Hussain are out of the team just for this test match.

Bangladesh has started showing its true color. Play has only begun for 30 minutes, already two down. :(

However, I also agree with you on some players. Ashraful must be dropped. No other player in the world has such a free ticket in the team. The way he batted in last few innings just irritated me. In the kenya series, he showed that he does not feel like playing with minnows. Now that the big team has come, he is throwing around his bat. He must be taught that he has to perform to stay in the team, no matter how talented he is.

Aftab threw his wicket in both the occasions in last test. I think he should be guided more before dropping so soon. Alok kapali definitely deserves a return, he should be given a chance. The temporary seat he can take is of Ashraful.

Warne to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, OUT: taken! slightly short, pitched on middle and off and turning away sharply, Ashraful needlessly follows it and ends up with a thick edge, Hayden at first slip takes it on the second attempt, Warne strikes!


All the tension and mystery revolving what Ashraful can do has ended! Well done Ashraful! You fulfilled our expectation.

I cannot agree on that. If Ashraful stays in the team after performing obnoxiously innings after innings why should a talented player like Aftab be dropped just after 4 innings? At least, his attitude is better than Ashraful. Think that he has to prove his worth in a situate when all so-called great batsman of Bangladesh are out and he is playing against the mightiest team of the world. He should be given chance a little more. But he must not be confused that a position in Bangladesh line-up is not a Jamindari which Ashraful is given.

there is a good chance that bd might break their lowest test innings considering saleh is out as soon as possible..

i think bd didn't do bad at all so far. its just the aussie bowling that did the damage..

for those who are thinking why ash played a shot like that, well, its not us who is playing against the best bowling attach in the world, its them the actual players who goes out to the field plays them... so its not that easy.. :p

Bashar and Ashraful should be [edit].

JO is an idiot. He is the best LBW candidate in the world.

Only Nafees can be forgiven somewhat ... the catch was awesome.

Australian pace bowling (especially Gillespie) was nothing too extra-ordinary.

Spinners are getting phenomenal turn and bounce though.

I'm furious. Ashraful has no sense at all. He's a disgrace. I know there will be people supporting ashraful but just look at the way he got out and this is not the first time. People can only laugh at his dismissals. I think only Rajin has the right attitude to play test match. Why didnt our players learn anything from watching Gilchrist and Ponting bout the way they paced their innings. Disappointing indeed.

DotBall
April 16, 2006, 01:18 AM
I think this is good in a away if Bangaldesh wants to make a good innings they should play senisble. Its a good chance for Ash,Omar,Mushud,Aftab to get in form for the ODIs. I think at lunch we should be 2/80+ at worst.

I wish your forcaste was half right.

How can you forgive Nafees. He played a ball that was at least foot and a half away from his body to the leg side on the 2nd over of a test match. His dismissal is right up there with Bas-Ash.

How many times we have faced the same situation?? Never thought we will face it again.

I said somewhat forgivable

Bret Lee took a fantastic catch ... otherwise Nafees might have gotten away easily.

But while I agree that he shouldn't have attempted it to start with, his shot was not as horrendous as Bashar's or Ash's.

You guys are being a bit harsh on Ashraful - he's only a young bloke and doesn't have the experience and temperament to go with his talent. Is he planning to play some county cricket alongside some other quality players? I don't know if he'd be picked by an OZ team to play in the Pura Cup but he'd certainly be a chance in county cricket, where there are more teams.

His career needs to be managed carefully, otherwise he won't fulfil his potential. His mentality is that of a cowlasher at the moment. He needs to learn patience and composure.
