I must confess, I can now feel for the British fans who had to absorb Brian Lara's 400. I think I know now how much indigestion they had to go through.

Congratulations to Gillespie for the brilliant double century. I guess each person has a thing or two meant just for himself, just as this first innings was for Gillespie. He has his sweet revenge in grand style. It is not that he had an easy pass, Shahadat rattled him quite a few times with his mean ones. Mashrafee and Rafique didn't show any mercy either. In fact he had to face fierce attack for four continious day.

Well nothing to complain about - our Rafique had his.

I'd just recommend the footage of this epic innings to be served at tiger's dinner everyday religiously, for years to come. On an odd day, our enormously talented batsmen may just learn a trick or two.

He faced 425 balls, scored 201 at the rate of 47.29 and remained unbeaten! Which is a long long story for a bowler, he did a master piece of job no doubt.

Man this is more shameful for us than losing by an inning! Conceding 201 runs to a tailender and worst of all we couldn't even get him out. I have always believed that despite the fact Bangladesh has horrible batting but our bowling is worst. You can't win a test match if you don't pick up 20 wickets. In this case we couldn't get a tail ender out! Really ashamed of the efforts that Bd boys put together. I didn't watch the match but can anyone tell if Bashar at least try out different things to get dizzy out? And I understand the pitch is damp and the ball wouldn't bounce a lot probably but to let a tailender make 201* is beyond me. I was just reading it cricinfo it turns out that Dizzy's score is the highest by a nightwatchman who top scored for an inning. Really shameful!

BD 1st innings 197. Gillespie 1st innings 201*.
I don't need to say anything more on Bd's performance.

What a display of patience. Hats of to him.

IF, and IF our batsmen can survive tomorrow, i.e. draw the match (highly unlikely), I'll glad for what Gillespie done.

what a disgrace...maan shomman ja ektu chilo taaw gelo ga...so this is the first time a nightwatchman's scored a double, isn't it?

well from the looks of it, amrao kalke beshikkhon tikbo na...era 2 jon out holei gese - bakira bat korte pare na...why could bashar/ashraful not have stuck in there for longer? :(

cuz they have itching problem and also was missing a nice lunch/dinner at home or modelling with a model. Do they need to play if they have sponsors, salary, a nice support, bhaijan chacha in selections, overall a nice model side by them.
Ulluk ...if they can bat and score 500+ why they won't just stay in the crease.
They already gave up and not willing to play that's what happend as usual now i knwo the true face of these fake tigers.

It is a total disgrace, no doubt about that.

No. No chance of a draw, the next 6 wickets will go in a flurry within the first 10 overs of the day :(

AsifTheManRahman
April 19, 2006, 08:58 AM
so a number ten from another side is better than all of our batsmen combined? 201* against 197/10...outrageous! they shouldn't even call themselves batsmen anymore.

If anyone's interested, this was Gillespie's career before the start of the 2nd test match.

It is a rare treat for Gillespie, who himself played only 52 of a possible 92 Tests after his 1996-97 debut thanks to an assortment of ailments: busted feet, stress fractures in the back, hip twinges, side-strains, dicky shoulders, torn calves, aching hamstrings, groin complaints and a broken right leg. Each time he recovered and Australia's newest ironman has missed only two Tests since November 2002. Through it all, in partnership with Glenn McGrath, he blossomed into one half of Australia's most statistically successful opening pair ever. But if McGrath's strength is his ability to make the ball do just enough, then Gillespie's flaw is his tendency for it to do too much. No other contemporary fast man elicits so many plays-and-misses. It explains, perhaps, along with his slightly samey length, why Gillespie has never quite imposed himself as Australia's No. 1 strike bowler. Nor has he truly dominated an opposition line-up; remarkably, the most wickets he has taken in a single series is 20. But as he approached 30, Gillespie had never bowled better. He operates from a shorter reconfigured run-up these days and is not so consistently quick. Few Australian bowlers, though, can have owned such deep wells of tenacity. Gillespie bowls long spells in the hottest conditions - always uncomplainingly, and always with the seam upright and the ball jagging both ways. He is popular with team-mates, bashful with the public, and occasionally more than monosyllabic with interviewers. He watches wrestling, listens to heavy metal and celebrated his maiden Test fifty with a bat ride embellished from the movie Happy Gilmore. His batting is hardy and improving, with two unbeaten half-centuries and a priceless 26 against India at Chennai confirming the rise. The great-grandson of a Kamilaroi warrior, Gillespie occupies a significant niche in Australian history as the first acknowledged Aboriginal Test cricketer. Unfortunately, his fifth Ashes series was his most forgettable. Dropped for the fourth and fifth Ashes Tests after taking only three wickets, he watched helplessly from the balcony as his side slipped to defeat, and he hasn't played for his country since. When recalled for the tour of Bangladesh, he scored his maiden century, becoming the fifth nightwatchman to reach three figures. Christian Ryan April 2006.

"they shouldn't even call themselves batsmen anymore." Rather, our bowlers should not call themselves bowlers anymore.

Just cant believe we could not manage to get Gillespie's wicket!Really cant believe this. The wicket may be dull may be there is little for the bowlers but still we should have achieve his wicket.If any proper batsman would do the same batting then it won't look that bad but its a bowler who gave the Aussies more than 200 runs and put us under pressure. How can Rafiqe, Shahadat were so inefficient after a brilliant dhaka test? Its really a mystry.

Lot to say about Bashars captaincy , he should have done something different to knock dizzy out. But we all know his hands were locked up, he was only watching the game rather than playing the game.

Bd bowlers might say it was a lifeless wicket but the question is why we lost so many wickets where our bowlers were failed to take a single wicket? There won't be any answer. Our aim should have been to stay in the wicket but in the end of the day its the same old story.

Gillespie didn't dream of it! He says " It was bizzre..." !

Some of you have got right, fortunately.

If i told " This adds to disgrace", Kamini being outsider would be pulled up for bashing, while telling the truth!

Gillespie had a mission - to wipe out the ignominy of the first test for the Aussies..and he did it in style. A tailender hitting an unbeaten double-hundred !

Hats off to Shariar Nafees too.

Jason Gillespie is arguibly the most successfull nightwatcher ever. if he practices his batting more, he might become another Andrew Symonds (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/australia/content/player/7702.html) for Australia!

'Gillespie later revealed the nature of the wager Hayden had placed. "He [Hayden] reckoned he's going to do a nude run of the oval if I got 200. I said if I got 200, I'd do a nude lap too. Not sure about that one, being in a Muslim country, I don't think it'll be perceived right, unlike anywhere else."'--source: cricinfo.com

what is that supposed to mean? anywhere else it's perfectly okay for two nude men run around doing laps inside a stadium? lol. aussie cricketers sometimes really surprise me with their comments.

Let's be serious here. Dizzy should be congratulated for an epic knock, but he's not a top- or even middle-order batsman by any means. He only has about four or five shots in his repertoire, and four of those are variations of a forward defence.

There's no way he'll be considered as an all-rounder. But having said that, Lee + Dizzy + Warne = more with the bat than Symmo

I'm pretty sure that comment's not meant to be taken seriously. It's Dizzy's way of saying that the chances of him scoring a double ton were so remote that he'd do a nude run if it actually happened. Since it did he now has to back away from it...

Luckily, Gillespie's stats doesn't look like the greatest allround performance for a series. Steve Waugh once had a batting average of 362.00 and bowling ave of 8.50 against Sri Lanka.
