decided to start this thread...mods if you feel it should be in one of the many ZIM series threads feel free to delete/move.

since its just a practice match, i figured i'd start the thread w/out all the new hi-tech standard match thread stuff.

Good luck...hope to see a massive total tomorrow in near 350.

Well, I don't think Al Furqaan has much to add other than saying it should be a nice sunny day in Harare.

All those crazy fans (living in the States) who are planning to stay up all night in hope of match updates, be advised not to count on TigerCricket too much :lol:

If one SMS from ZIM to BD cost 5 taka (can anyone update us how much it cost for international SMS from ZIM to BD), an update after each over will cost 250 taka for an innings i.e. 500 taka for 50+50=100 over. If this update is for every 5 overs, cost go further down. Can not BCB arrange this much money and share in TC?

What's new about our superstar batsmen. JO is getting call again. Bash should have stayed there i guess he got nervous. 45.4 over to score 200 runs clearly shows that few batsmen got out cheaply and put pressure on rest. And JO 40+ might one of those innings using 70 balls.
Are you guys still want to talk about whitewash? Not even bring that on your mind. Because our senior team could be worst than our A team in mentality.

nasifkhan
July 26, 2006, 10:31 AM

A bit disappointed by the margin of victory. At international level you are expected to win against the second string sides being a test playing country so the margin was of utmost importance. I would say it was a miserable display from our batsmen for losing the 5 wickets and a sad show by the bowlers since they could not get all 10 wickets of a second string zimbabwe side whose national team is also in tatters. If this is the way we are going to play the African tour then a series win will be hard to achieve let alone thinking about whitewash. However since the team had a break I can give them some leeway and hope that the performance in the first ODI is upto the mark or at least they should even scrape a win because starting the series with a win would be a big advantage.

AsifTheManRahman
July 26, 2006, 10:39 AM
i think JO will do fairly well in this series...after all it's only zimbabwe...remember how he dominated against the kenyan bowling in that last odi (or was it the third)?

now, if ashraful fails in all five games, i say we relegate him to moheskhali para cricket club. this is actually a chance for our batsmen to score big (maybe even a ton or two), and they also have a LOT of time - 5 games. anyone who fails miserably in this series doesn't really deserve that red and green cap.

July 26, 2006, 11:01 AM
sorry for last comment but didn't have any intension to bash JO. But he did a lot by scoring 40+ where as our superstar Ash did nothing. I believe JO played sensibly because of SN early depature. So, greet going JO. I hope they can pace their innings accordingly to the game and change game plan based on the situation. We should have two more practice matches to adjust to the new situation.
I hope we can get a detail report on the pitch and how our players adjusted with the new condition. I think Aftab's consulting with Sakib,Tushar and others helped him play a good innings. Great to see our new cricketers are developing that professionalism and cricketing knowledge.

i did not say that i will start loving him like few of us does here, so it was not total conversion.

but he is still a boring batsman who score runs & our superstar is scores ocassionaly
Just this morning my wife told me a story of an American christian converting to Islam and staying three years as muslim before going back to christianity, finding it dificult to follow islam.

And you couldn't stay in JO supporter club for a one single day?

What's new about our superstar batsmen. JO is getting call again. Bash should have stayed there i guess he got nervous. 45.4 over to score 200 runs clearly shows that few batsmen got out cheaply and put pressure on rest. And JO 40+ might one of those innings using 70 balls.
Are you guys still want to talk about whitewash? Not even bring that on your mind. Because our senior team could be worst than our A team in mentality.

Settle down my friend. Yes...still want to talk about whitewash. Its just a practice match, isn't it? I think our senior team is doing well so far and way better than A team in mentality. I am sure you will get the chance to celebrate soon!!!:lol:

I am not a JO supp or against him... I am for Bangladesh. If there are two openers can score 30/40 constantly I wouldn't even blink before dropping JO but with a replacement and thinking that oh we will give somebody a chance to open for another 10 years is stupid... He can at least score some run even if its against the week ops. We need to groom another opener in the mean time playing him in A or other level. Not just by dropping him which will take us in negative (not back to zero)...

i think JO will do fairly well in this series...after all it's only zimbabwe...remember how he dominated against the kenyan bowling in that last odi (or was it the third)?

now, if ashraful fails in all five games, i say we relegate him to moheskhali para cricket club. this is actually a chance for our batsmen to score big (maybe even a ton or two), and they also have a LOT of time - 5 games. anyone who fails miserably in this series doesn't really deserve that red and green cap.

its a practice match. i thought it was a very fruitful match for us. masri got a fifer, aftab got a half century, bashar and gullu got some runs. from the looks of the scorecard, it looks like the match was never in doubt. it'll be greatly appreciated by me if some of you didn't whine at every single chance you got.

We need consistency in our batting. Ashraful is like Eid bonus, twice in a year. We need monthly salary that'll come every month. tike thaka ekta boro kotha amader jonno. Ekhono amra 300 er swapno dekhi na. Amra chai 50 over khelte ar ta holey 250 ashbe. Ekhon porjonto etai amader lokhkho. Jader vat jute na tara monthly salary r kotha aage vabe. Eid dress er kotha na. JO scores some runs, stays in the middle for 10 overs. That's better than what Ash is doing.
Good thing is, Aftab getting matured.

He did get 5 wickets. That was a pen mistake. On the left side of that report in current result section where the score scrolls up you can see the Mash's 5/29.

As for Ash, he should do decent in the series. If not rainhill would be waiting for him.

I would say it is a good start although not a brilliant one. But I cant blame the boys as they were out of cricket for quite a long time. ANd its always tough to play the very first match in a foreign tour. Nice to see Mush getting some wickets, proves he is in good form. Overall bowling could have been better, i.e we should have taken all wickets of the Zimbabwians, that didn't happen.

So looking forward for the first odi.

July 27, 2006, 02:34 AM
sorry guys my machine was acting up on me and i couldnt carry on with the updates

BD played well and won as expected only that we expected them to be a bit ruthless, which they didnt. Omar rode his luck to 45 after being dropped about 4 times...Ahmed was fantastic throughout and never seemed lacking at any point..he hit a couple of sixes and rotated the strike well. Bashar looked good as well...

The tigers looked a bit rusty for a team that beat Aussie and Sri Lanka in recent times..but its expected when you play A sides who have nothing to loose. Its a good wake up call for the Tigers coz they now realise that it might not be as easy as they thought to whitewash the Zimbos. All the same a win is a win and there are a lot of positives to take from this game..like Mash i heard was unplayable

good to finally see u back Andy.. we were desperately lookin for u last night..
n on that rustyness.. mind u.. our players r coming back after a long 3 months break.. played hardly any cricket in this time.. so we sort of expected that rustiness

plus there were other factors like pitch, condition, environment to suit to
as they only arrived Harare 2 days ago.

i wish we had played one more warm up games for the players to be in the killer mode when the real hunting begins...

really very poor way to get out.

Adventure Africa: So far so good
Rabeed Imam from Harare
26-July-2006 <table class="tablestyle" id="Table3" style="border-collapse: collapse;" bordercolordark="#000080" bordercolorlight="#006699" align="right" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="120"> <tbody><tr> <td>http://www.tigercricket.com/Image/mashrafee_with_paul.jpg
</td> </tr> </tbody></table> As opposition the Zimbabwe Board XI was not expected to mount a challenge against the Tigers but the cooler climate and grassy pitches need some getting used to. However, Bangladesh turned what could have been a tricky practice game into a virtual cruise when they chased the home side’s 198 with five wickets and 4.2 overs to spare at the picturesque Alexandra Sports Club on Wednesday.
The Alexandra Sports Club is a century old institution and has a feel good ambiance with trees lined up in a semi circle offering shade at the cricket ground. In the other parts there is a club house, tennis and squash facilities and on the other end of the main building are the soccer and rugby fields. The outfield of the cricket ground was not in the most ideal state and had patches of unevenness about it. The main interest however centred around the wicket which had a generous amount of grass on top and with a chilly breeze blowing across the venue the Bangladeshi bowlers and fielders were getting their first part of acclimatization lesson.
This was the only the fourth cricket match of any nature for the team since the third ODI against Australia on April 28. They have played the BCCB Academy team thrice back home and the games were very competitive but on Wednesday what was supposed to be virtually a Zimbabwe A side did not provide similar resistance. It was more a case of braving the conditions and Mashrafee Bin Mortaza struggled early on. He came off after bowling just three overs complaining of stiffness in the back. At the other end Shahadat Hossain Rajib came charging in and tried to make a statement with hostility. But although the grass promised encouragement the wicket had no sting and Shahadat’s shorter length had little effect on the Board XI openers Hove and Chauluka who went on to share 51.
Before it could get worrying for the Tigers Aftab Ahmed’s medium pacers gave them breakthrough. Aftab also showed the virtue of pitching it up as Chauluka got an inside edge on to the wicket. Mortaza has a smart brain and he returned after some massaging and stretching to torment the Zimbabweans. He kept an off stump line, bowled a fuller length and was rewarded.
“The more I bowled the better it got physically and there is natural movement available if you pitch the ball up,” said Mortaza who grabbed a five-for giving away just 29 from his full quota of overs. All five of his victims were either bowled or lbw and Shahadat ought to have taken a cue from him.
“There is no point bowling flat out on such a slow surface as the ball just loops up. Later on I was getting reverse swing and the length got even fuller,” said Mortaza.
Bangladesh’s other pace bowling option Syed Rasel sent down four overs for 13 and just had a hint of swing going. The left-arm spinners Mohammad Rafique, Abdur Razzak and Shakib Al Hasan bowled 23 overs between them and while Rafique had a rare off-day, Razzak was desperately unlucky not to get among the wickets. Razzak used the wind to good effect as his deliveries drifted or rather swung almost inwards before pitching and turning sharply away. Shakib extracted prodigious turn with some of his deliveries.
On the batting front Aftab Ahmed was the show-stopper with a 62-ball 60 that had eight fours and a mighty straight six that just missed the windshield of fashionable truck in the parking lot sparing someone a few billion dollars worth of replacement. Before your eyes pop out, this is Zimbabwean dollar we are talking about.
While the batting was a breeze for the Tigers for most of the time with only the gangling figure of pacer Chris Mpofu having Test experience for the Zim Board, there were still moments that made them think.
“I was halfway through some of the pull shots when I realized that the ball hadn’t arrived. These are very slow wickets and I just hope that there will be more pace in the Harare Sports Club track,” said Aftab who was lucky at the start after he was dropped once and then saw a couple of top edges just evading the fielders.
“I could not get any timing at first but the secret here I guess is to play late,” said skipper Habibul Bashar who made a fluent 38 from 53 balls.
Opener Javed Omar got a 79-ball 45 in typical workmanlike fashion. His opening partner Shahriar Nafees (12 off 16) fell early by getting too flashy while Mohammad Ashraful had one more disappointing outing when he fell for 12 (32 balls). His was a soft dismissal as he offered a tame catch to cover off leg-spinner Kamungozi.
Towards the end Mushfiqur Rahim remained not out on 15 looking comfortable and the youngster also did a good job behind the stumps in the absence of first choice Khaled Mashud who is recovering from a minor chest infection and should be fit for selection for the first ODI on the 29th.
Apart from Mashud, Rajin Saleh and Forhad Reza sat out the practice game as coach Dav Whatmore took a look at 13 members of the side. His main apprehensions about this tour were the different conditions but the coach should be pleased that the boys gave a strong showing even without stretching themselves too much on Wednesday.

Let javed omar play but upon one condition, he must retire hurt after scoring 35. Because the way he starts playing after a quick 30-35 compells the other batsman to try shots and get out.

So much thoughtful and balanced criticism. JO haters are still at large, he got 45 with luck or not he does best within his limitations, while our superstar [insert here] barely manages to reach double figure.

Anyway, nice to see Aftab scoring runs. I reckon he'll be our top scorer if not Nafees. Looking forward to see some centuries!

first of all thanks for the report by rabeed imam and thank you for posting over here. We were eagerly waiting for it.
So far it looks good to see players getting an idea of pitch, field and conditions, though Harare ground could be different.
I am concerned about Masrafee's back man. I don't want him to be like Shohaib. Hope Bashar would know how to use him. He should not have more than three overs in first session. then can break up the overs.
Great to see, Rajib using aggression. But aggression without brain is regression.
Rest did pretty OK but wanted to see more wkts for two "R"s

Hehe what can i say about JO. He is our JO. Can't deny his contribution of 45. Second highest score and ofcourse it is important. If he could have done it in 60 balls that would have been fantastic. Ah guess "Something is better than nothing", atleast he didn't got out cheaply like SN or Ash.

Where is rainhill and where is test level cricket nation!!
Apparently, our selectors, because of lucrative deal, send him over there without even realizing what good it will bring to Ash. Ash is gone and he will be another Rokon, fault is our cricketer's mentality and our selectors' failure to make them good.
