Strategy of Bangladesh batting should be phased in 5 phases (10 over/phase). Progress should be monitored according to achievement in each phase of the game. And maintaining the target will give us safe sailing. Bottom line is reaching the target in each phase with keeping the wicket intact till towards the end. I guess it is the simplest strategy.

Batting first:

1<SUP>st</SUP> 10 overs 3-4 runs/over with keeping all the wkt intact. = 30-40 runs

2<SUP>nd</SUP> 10 overs 4-5 runs/over with loss of 1 wkt (maximum) = 40-50 runs.

3<SUP>rd</SUP> 10 overs 5 runs/over with loss of 1 wkts (maximum) = 50 runs.

4<SUP>th</SUP> 10 overs 5.5-6 runs/over with loss of 1 wkts (maximum)=55-60 runs.

5<SUP>th</SUP> 10 overs 6-8 runs/over with loss of 4 wkts (maximum) =60-80 runs.

<?xml:namespace prefix = v ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" /><v:line id=_x0000_s1026 style="Z-INDEX: 1; POSITION: absolute" coordsize="21600,21600" to="366pt,-9pt" from="0,-9pt"></v:line>Total: 50 overs with loss of 7 wkts 235-280 runs

Somewhere in 250 runs is respectable, but may not be defendable, either way if we can keep 7 wickets at the end of the 40<SUP>th</SUP> over, we may be able to post 280+ runs.

Batting 2<SUP>nd</SUP>:

This is kind of tricky, it all depends on what is the target. Lets assume 300 runs.

1<SUP>st</SUP> 10 overs 6-7 runs/over with keeping all the wkt. intact = 60-70 runs

2<SUP>nd</SUP> 10 overs 5-6 runs/over with loss of 1wkt = 50-60 runs

3<SUP>rd</SUP> 10 overs 5 runs/over with loss of 1 wkt = 50 runs

4<SUP>th</SUP> 10 overs 5 runs/over with loss of 1wkt = 50 runs

next 5 overs 6 runs/over with loss of 1 wkt = 30 runs

next 5 overs 10 runs/over with loss of 2 wkt = 50 runs

<v:line id=_x0000_s1027 style="Z-INDEX: 2; POSITION: absolute; mso-position-horizontal: absolute; mso-position-vertical: absolute" coordsize="21600,21600" to="396pt,8.45pt" from="-6pt,8.45pt"></v:line>

Total: 50 overs with loss of 6 wkts = 290~300 runs

With this strategy it might be achievable.
