View Full Version : Planning for Champions Trophy: How can we do better than last series?

August 18, 2006, 03:05 PM
"Should we play test cricket? ", the very first question that I posted after the Zimb series lose. We improved definitely, there were signs and also results. But how much that's upto the audience. We don't get to play cricket that much now a days, it was a hursh reality that we have been stripped off from playing too many international level test cricket. But we got a chance in African series, but Zimb played well(or we played worst) and we got defeated. We can write books to find out the reasons for the defeats. Less time to adjust, bowlers' got tired, Masrafee performed worst in his cricket career, Pilot should join movies instead of the team, Rajin should join body building instead of building our innings, Golla likes to show his copy book block shot first few overs, Ash will take more time while hibernating and grow up from his puberty age,....the list goes on and on.

First of all, we are new team, but we played enough international games to be not considersed as novice. Our main concern was obviously batting and fielding. It was clearly visible.

So, what's next. In champions trophy can we become good. Please share your thoughts, suggestions. And if anyone knows any selectors or BCB personels please
inform them about our sayings, thoughts.

How about looking out for other threads with same topic? that can be a start for the fans at least...

Schedule more matches. Practice and correct the errors. We will be fine.

May be we can ask India or Pakistan to send their A-team for few practice matches. I am sure there will be practice matches between the national team and the Academy team once the Academy returns from Pakistan.

hmm, Afridi and Imran Nazir could have match practice too if Pakistan sends their A teams.

How can we do better? by simply not making stupid mistakes that our batsmen do every single game.

ONLY if they can play a sensible cricket, i cant see how we wont be able to compete against SL and WI? and zim, i believe we can beat them in India.

I dont wanna beat WI, but I'd like to see SL vanquished by us.

My FIRST concern, will Habibul Bashar get better in time?

My FIRST concern, will Habibul Bashar get better in time?

According to medical experts from Bangkok, he can resume play from 2nd week of September.

He is very much reqd. for the proper team combination.

In presence of Bashar, my team would be..

Mushfiq (I know Pilot will be there, anyway my choice is Mushfiq)

Rasel should be first choice against Zimbo's, Shahadat should replace him against WI & SL.

We cannot possibly do worse than last time in CT. Last time we played, this time we won't play in CT. We will come back after the qualifying round loosing to SL, WI and probably ZIM.

Get our players involved in more matches. Period.

number 1, learn to take catches
number 2, learn to take runs w/o getting out (applies to top order batsmen)

number 1, learn to take catches
number 2, learn to take runs w/o getting out (applies to top order batsmen)
number 3, learn you can not hit all the ball for 4 and 6 (applies to top order batsmen specially to Aftab and Ash)
number 4, learn you can hit some ball (applies to Pilot specially at death)
