why not Rafique/Mashrafi as opener in Kenya series?
i think we should start our innings aggressively.
Dav Whatmore follwed this strategy while he as the coach of Srilanka during 1996 world cup. (Remember the partnership of Jayasuria and Kaluwithrana).
because we dont use full potential of our hard hitter like Rafique and Mashrafi. what do u think abt it?

At least for the First oneday we should go with the normal batting line up..Our openers(as now we don't have JO), are doing a good work and for the first game I think we should let them do their duty.We can think about the possibility of opening with Rafique from the 2nd or 3rd when the idea that how much pressure Kenya is going to put on us in the series becomes clear.

Sorry, but that could quite possibly be the most ridiculous suggestion ever presented... :rolleyes:

Admins, you really, really, need to introduce some sort of a probation period where new users are not allowed to post threads unless they have been either posting for 3 months or have reached a certain number of posts. Otherwise there will be no end to idiotic (no offense marif) threads like this one.

Our reg. openers did good in the last ODI against Zimbabwe. Thus, we should keep the same line-up for the Kenya series too.

rafique always bats well against kenya.. and then you guys might recall the way mash hit 6's and 4's against em in the last series.. :D i am hopeful!!

Aftab or Rafique I do not think Mashrafe is up to the task. As Nafees is left handed Aftab should be the more obvious choice as we get L R combination.

Mr-Cricket
August 10, 2006, 05:11 PM
Then go for attack with full power! There is nothing to loose! Open with Rafique and Mashrafe.

we do not have time mark around, this a preperation for us before icc champ cup.
so we get our openers right. since rajin and nafees doin well, there isn't good reason y should we change.middle is doin much bettter. 2 new faces are't doin 2 bad so there is much 2 worry about.
and finaly mashrafe is my favourite and stay as my fav no mater wat happens

If we want a pinch-hitter we can always use Aftab because he always plays like one. I dont think AFtab is a no. 4 batsman since he doesnt have the temperament for that position. They should play him in opening, no 3, or no 6.
There is a difference in no 3 and 4 in ODIs. No 4 has to ideally play in the middle overs and build a foundation whereas no 3 can afford to hit out.

Same from me. I like to see Aftab as a opener in this series.:up:

middle is doin much bettter

I can't really agree regarding top and middle order.Our middle order is not doing good, except Nafees and Rajin combination, top order not doing any good too..Aftab is playing as if he is in 20/20 game and better not to talk about Ash-Foooool...New faces are promising, but we gotta think about fixing our top and middle order problem.

Mohammad rafiq can't play pace bowling well. and pitches in kenya will provide some swing in early overs

It is a slang. A derogatory comment for test cricketers. Opposite of thukabe which is a derogatory comment for ODI/20-20 batsmen.
