Install Paltak
----> Click on "Actions"
Select "Join A Chat Room"

----> Click on Asia/Africa/Australia
Select "Bengali"

Select BD Cricket live or something that indicates live cricket coverage.

You should be all right to go.

Btw, dont try 30 or 40 mins before the match start, as the guys might not create the room that early. check prior to the starting time, and it should be there, if they are webcasting the audio.

The Paltak guys provide a really good service, for those who wont be able to watch the games live. I've been loggin on to Paltak for BD matches for a while now and really enjoy being there and participate in discussion. But tomorrow, i would probably watch the games live on tele, so wont be there.

Enjoy your time over there.

We need to win the toss.
Actually I think we should lose the toss! Winning toss could go either way. Here is my reasoning:

According to Dav's comments on DS, they are worried about the 'dew factor' and hence wants to bat first. He was talking about SN and MA surviving the first few overs. If you look at SL's practice match you will see that their top order could not survive the average PCA pace attack! Do you expect me to believe that our guys will survive 10 overs from Vass and Malinga? I hope and pray that they survive, but I kind of doubt they will.

I do not know how much the dew factor played in PCA's innings. If it really did, then let SL win the toss and decide their own fate. We have pace attacks of Mashrafee/Rasel/Shahadat which can cause trouble to their top order as well.

You always want to bat first on a day night match. Its always hard to bat second under the light and with this batting lineup, I wouldn't dare to do that.

According to Dav's comments on DS, they are worried about the 'dew factor' and hence wants to bat first.............

If its true (i.e. dew in the evening), then we should better bowl first, otherwise it will be difficult for bowlers (specially 3/4 SLAs we have in our team) to grip the ball properly in the second innings.

In Mohali it would be difficult to bowl under light.......So win the toss and bat might not be the best option??

i saw Bangladesh won the toss many times, but the captains failed to take right discision and lost the games horribly, lets see wat happen tomorrow.......according to the experts bowling first will be the right discision.....and i think the weather is not tht hot to field in the afternoon.... so HB kindly bowl first if we win the toss

We need to win this match, because in my opinion WI has come back to CT as a very strong team. Their moral is also very high.

Dew factor comes into play in the mornings and in the nights :)
Definitely we need to win the toss and bat first if we want to survive and put up a fight. In the evenings there is no dew factor and batsmen should belt Vass, Malinga to all corners of the ground. Under the light this Vass would become a zombie and eat Ash alive. 2003 WC first over 4 wickets with a hattrick, grrrr!!

Update on playing 11:
TV reports say that Rajin & Mehrab Jr. has been left out of the Squad for tomorrow's match. That leaves 12 men for tomorrow.. and the final 11 will be declared before toss. It will probably be a choice between Shahadat vs. Rajjak depending on pitch conditions.

Very decent thought, especially when SL are historically good in playing agains spin. Moreover shahadat has a record of biting SL before, doesn't he?

Whatever there tomorrow, I want to see 4 SLAs against west indies and zim.

i dont understand one thing about how BD will quality if they win 2 out of 3 matches:

Suppose-
BD beats Sri and Zim

Sri beats WI and Zim

WI beats BD and Zim

So all three team will have equal points..? :confused:

So the final two will be decided by net run rate..
Even if we win two matches the chance of qualifying is like daydreaming for me .. :(

It will be real interesting to see the 11 team management pick tomorrow.I think they will go without Mehrab Jr.So, SN-Ash for the opening and then the same usual players.Probably, between Rasek and Shahadat Rasel will be picked.Anyways, lets see.

October 6, 2006, 10:17 AM
This is the first bad thing happened. Meh and Rajin is left out. This means that Ash is going to be the partner of SN. Losing first wicket in 3rd over will create extra pressure. This won't allow Aftab to play his natural game. There was every chance of Aftab hitting another 50 in 40 balls. Now after the early loss of Ash, Aftab will be out at 30 after spending 50 balls. We'll be missing a solid opening partnership as well as the service of Aftab.

It seems Ashraful is getting his final chance to prove himself to be selected for BD. If he fails in the first two games, he should be rested atleast for a year, let him play for "A" team for a while. He must prove himself to be qualified for the national team again. I hope he would play this time with devotion and responsibility. All the best.

I don't understand why do we make a so big deal out of language. He was simply speaking the language of those people who asked him the questions. This is called a friendly attitude/courtesy. When would we get this?

And if he was asked the questions in English, two factors come into play as to what language he should answer (bangla/hindi/urdu); one is the audience he is addressing and second is the person who questioned him.

As far as understanding urdu / hindi goes, I bet atleast 80% of our population watch bollywood movies and they would not watch if they don't understand what's going on in the movie.

He is in India not for his honeymoon rather represtenting his country. He should be very careful in representing country.

If he was asked the questions in english, why does he think even to answer in hindi/urdu when he is a representative of Bangladesh.

Settle down my friend! We have to remember we are playing against SL!! Rajin is not a "A" class batter though his devotion for the team is simply great. And Mehrab is a new kid in the block!! He was not tested yet against the big guns!!! Therefore, playing them is a gamble. Though, playing Ashraful is a high-steak gamble! The team mgt. has choosen the high risk one to cash more profit. It's like do or die!!

If he was asked the questions in english, why does think even to answer in hindi/urdu when you are representative of Bangladesh.

As far as the representation goes, courtesy and attitude matter most to me. Not the language.

The only reason he can speak in other languages is the audience he is addressing. And definitely the person who asked him the question would not get a meaning out of what he said if he spoke in Bangla. Again, you don't want a representative of your country to say something that most people wouldn't understand, which even for a bit would make him look like a fool. Further if he can speak in hindi it would showcase his talent and ability to speak different languages.

We gotta learn to take it easy. Say, I am a guy who can speak only desi languages - bangla/urdu/hindi. Someones comes to me and asks me a question in english, I didn't understand whatever the heck he said. I ask him in Bangla as to what he said, and I figure he does not understand Bangla. So, I ask him in hindi/urdu as to what he said. This does not make me any what less Bangladeshi or love Bangladesh less than those who can't speak hindi/urdu.

It's just about communication and friendly gesture, thats what we should keep in mind and learn to take things easy.

Anyways, it was really an OFF-TOPIC discussion. If you get it good, or else we move on.

I think it is not Ashraful but our selectors and BCB. Why they kept him in the squad? Because...there is no set standards how to select the team in our country! And as Ashraful thinks his position in the team is given, there is no need to play with 110% effort!! Very simple equation!!!:)

In Europe (main land), people know atleast 3+ different languages. This allows them to communicate better around the world. They are not uptight on speaking in mother tongue to relay a message. That is what Ehsan is trying to say. Communicating with other languages is not bad as long as he/she is fluent in that. As for representing, just giving a decent, humble interview he can represent Bangladesh in any language he is comfortable with. One must think of the audience too in an interview.

As far as the representation goes, courtesy and attitude matter most to me. Not the language.

The only reason he can speak in other languages is the audience he is addressing. And definitely the person who asked him the question would not get a meaning out of what he said if he spoke in Bangla. Again, you don't want a representative of your country to say something that most people wouldn't understand, which even for a bit would make him look like a fool. Further if he can speak in hindi it would showcase his talent and ability to speak different languages.

We gotta learn to take it easy. Say, I am a guy who can speak only desi languages - bangla/urdu/hindi. Someones comes to me and asks me a question in english, I didn't understand whatever the heck he said. I ask him in Bangla as to what he said, and I figure he does not understand Bangla. So, I ask him in hindi/urdu as to what he said. This does not make me any what less Bangladeshi or love Bangladesh less than those who can't speak hindi/urdu.

It's just about communication and friendly gesture, thats what we should keep in mind and learn to take things easy.

Anyways, it was really an OFF-TOPIC discussion. If you get it good, or else we move on.

Well bro, my way and feeling to represent my country is totally different from yours. I respect yours too, but don't want to continue any discussion anymore. Sorry for off topic discussion.

Whatever logic you make Ehsan bhai there is no excuse here. You simply can't speak Hindi where you are representing your country. If ESPN people don't understand Bangla then they should go to a translator to get the meaning or they should not approach to Ashraful at all. But they did and even if Ash would speak Bangla then they won't mind, indeed they would respect him, as he would be respecting his mother language.

It is not a matter of skill as you said, it is a matter of pride. If you wana show your skill then go to Bollywood movies.

Some of our fellow members think talking into another's language is a courtesy! Did you ever found any Indian is doing that courtesy to you? It has lately become a fashion that whenever we meet some Indian, we need to prove that we can speak Hindi. Do those Indian ever try to speak in Bengali?

See my friends, Bengali is the language for which we gave bloods. This is our mother language, our heart’s language. First of all use English as international language, If someone does not understand English, why to use other language than your own? There is no shame on it. Rather it proves your love and passion for your mother tongue.

Agree that by the help of satellite channels, even a kid can speak in Hindi in Bangladesh now a days. But while representing a nation, if English is not acceptable, then we should not use any other language than our own mother language. One personal thing, I studied in India and now I work in a multinational company in Denmark and there are few Indians here around. When I met them, they start talking in Hindi and when I reply in English, they say, how come you don't speak Hindi although you are from Bangladesh? Then I get my chance to explain - my language is Bengali and this is the only language in whole world for which people scarified their lives.

And I love my mother tongue, I am proud to be a Bangladeshi.

Apologize for becoming emotional a bit and making match thread a language thread.

Cricket_dorshok,
Don't be sorry. You and me are both different kinds. But it was off-topic and I wanna close down that discussion here.

SMHasan,
It is not about Bollywood movies, it is not about pride. It is about communication just the way tigers_eye put it. The pride is in yourself, you can showcase your pride by performing, by winning, not by language. It just does not make sense to me why a lot of us take the language matter so hard. If he was speaking in English, I am sure you would have been fine. But if he speaks Hindi/Urdu he is culprit. So, for the "pride" shouldn't we all speak or inteview in Bangla all the time?

Anyways, I know there are a lot of us who would disagree with me. But I don't wanna go on and continue explaining this, because no matter how I try you guys would not get it.

Likewise some people told in 1952 to why to care about Urdu being our national language, we would learn few more languages. But do you think Salam, Barkat, Rafiq were stupid? Why they thought Bengali is a big deal?

I know your answer will be, that was different case and the question was of national language. Yes, but remember, all those come from inside the heart and many people think language as a big thing - no matter if you agree or not.

Thanks for taking me into the history. I understand you are a bit emotional. Thus, you mix the worldy things with emotions. I really respect your feelings.

But to me we need be a little easier. Anyways that is how I am. As far as Indians and Pakistanis speaking Bangla goes, I taught some of my friends to speak few words of Bangla. Gujratis, can understand a lot of Bangla words as their style of language is somewhat b/w Bangla and Hindi. Like, Kemcho? = Kemon acho.

Anyways, no more replies from me on this off-topic.

I hope tigers would showcase their pride by performing. GO BD!

Sorry thik bujlam na. Is there any better way to expose Mehrab against big guns without taking that gamble. Whether we try him now or one year later, we still have to bite the bullet and take gamble whether its now or in future. He already proved that he can perform in team-a level and he is in his best of his form.

So we cannot by-pass that "gamble step" ..... Can we? Thats how Bashar, Ash, Nafis, Aftab, Razzak came in this team and thats how Mehrab will have to try his luck... there is no other easy way. And unless we let him fight against the best, we will never know whether he is a real deal or bhua.

And if one has to be blamed I would blame Chacha. :)
Manager should have briefed all the players how to say things to the media, what to say to the media and which language to use. These are all teenagers and in their early 20s. They wouldn't know better. He is afterall their babysitter.

I for one don't care what language he or any other players use as long as they are humble. Let just focus on the match thread. Go BD!! :flag:

Joto dosh Nondo Gosh. ChaCha just came as a manager less than few weeks and now its all his fault? How many years Ash is playing for our national team? If Ash need to know how to speak in fromt of press, than what he need to do is just talk with Sakib.

Last Summer when BD team was in England the BD Manager couldn't arrange air conditioned rooms or fans in their room for our players in hot summer nights. Where as ChaCha already arranged to spray each players room so that there is no incident of dengu. And this is called acting proactively. Instaed of apreciating for his effort we are already trying to drag him dowm.

It seems Ashraful is getting his final chance to prove himself to be selected for BD. If he fails in the first two games, he should be rested atleast for a year, let him play for "A" team for a while. He must prove himself to be qualified for the national team again. I hope he would play this time with devotion and responsibility. All the best.

I hope you are right - he is due to be 'rested' for a while now!

Very nice article. While describing Bangladesh, they started little bit negetively but ended on a high note.

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>Bangladesh today (Friday) named 12 players for their opening qualifying match of the ICC Champions Trophy 2006 against Sri Lanka on Saturday at Chandigarh.

The players left out from the 14-man squad are Rajin Saleh and Mehrab Hossain (Jr.). The final XI will be announced on the eve of the day-night match.
The Tigers trained for about two and a half hours at the Mohali Stadium in the afternoon but it was a much lighter session compared to the four hours spent at the ground the day before. The Tigers have already played a practice match after reaching Chandigarh which they won by the handsome margin of 7 wickets against a Punjab Cricket Association President’s XI.

The wicket for that match and the subsequent net sessions on the pitches of Mohali Stadium’s training facility has given the Bangladesh side a selection dilemma. All the wickets here are grassy and apparently seam friendly but the team’s batsmen are all speaking approvingly of the conditions.
“If we get wickets like these back home then the standards would improve rapidly. Wonderful to bat on because the bounce and pace is consistent,” said Mehrab after coming out from a knock in the nets on Thursday.

Mohammad Ashraful, who is certain to open the batting with Shahriar Nafees Ahmed on Saturday, was happy for two reasons. “I have just received a set of new bats from my sponsors Reebok and the one I tried out in the nets today felt very, very good. If the pitch for the match is anything like the practice wickets then we should enjoy batting on it. You can be in control without playing silly shots,” said Ashraful who has struggled for runs recently and was the lone failure with six in the practice game. Aftab Ahmed, the man in touch, was also relishing the prospect of doing something special.

“The first 10 overs are crucial. Once the movement is gone then you can really dictate terms on these pitches. You don’t get tracks like these back home,” said Aftab who top-scored for Bangladesh in the practice match. “There could be a lot of runs on offer,” he added.

Sri Lanka are expected to go into the match with four quick bowlers – Chaminda Vaas, Lasith Malinga, Dilhara Fernando and Farveez Maharoof. Bangladesh have also kept their options open to think in similar lines. Fast bowler Shahadat Hossain Rajib did not feature in the practice game but is one of the four pace bowlers in the 12 for the first game along with Mashrafee Bin Mortaza, who turned 23 on Thursday, Syed Rasel and Farhad Reza.

The magnificent Mohali Stadium has an outfield to rival the best in the world and there would be no excuses for slack fielding on the lush carpet. Although batting and bowling was clinical and impressive in the practice match, ground fielding was not as satisfactory.

“The whole team’s fielding effort could be undermined by one or two players whose body language is good indication that they are about to fumble or miss a catch. It is not that they are bad fielders but there should be a degree of spontaneity and aggressiveness when you are fielding and that is sometimes missing in certain individuals,” said Tigers’ assistant coach and fielding specialist Mohammad Salahuddin who had the boys fielding under the bright yet difficult lights at the venue on Thursday and Friday. “Lights are just above the eye level so that could be tricky for the side batting first when they go out to field,” Salahuddin added.

The match would start at 2:30pm local time (3pm BST).

SQUADS
Bangladesh (12): Habibul Bashar (Captain), Shahriar Nafees Ahmed, Mohammad Ashraful, Aftab Ahmed, Sakib Al Hasan, Farhad Reza, Khaled Mashud, Mohammad Rafique, Mashrafee Mortaza, Abdur Razzak, Syed rasel, Shahadat Hossain Rajib.

Jawayardane, Tharanga, Jayasuria, Dilshan, Sangarkara can score 300 and Vaas and Maharoof can do 50 runs in 4 overs of Mash. So, we will be chasing a healthy total of 350.

if lanka is going with 4 fast bowlers, we have to play our 3 + reza (i don't call reza a fast bowler for 2 reasons). first, altho his pace is not far from rasel's, he just insn't as good as rasel by any measure. second, he is a batting all rounder who happens to bowl some medium pace.

i feel bad for razzak, but with lanka's well known forte against spin, we have to think quick. the wicket says "pace", the opposition plays "pace", and their weakness is "pace". we have to think "pace" if we are serious about winning

Why he needs to speak hindi!!! This is ridiculous. He could try to speak english, if he can't simply speak BANGLA, the reporter will manage interpretor. What they think, if they can speak hindi/urdu they will be smarter/upper class citizen. These type of people should not represent Country.

maybe he was trying to make it easier for the tv reporter you genius. dont jump the gun so quickly. i can safely assume ash has more pride in his country than you do. it shows in your post. the fact that you were able to formulate a hypothesis such as this - "if they can speak hindi/urdu they will be smarter/upper class citizen" - in order to explain why ash spoke hindi to the reporter shows how lowly you think of bangla. why would that thought even enter your head? i can tell you why. you're guilty of the exact accusation that you have blamed ash for.

I know lots of Bangladeshis start speeking Bangla with me(even though I am a Nepali), and when I say to them that sorry I don't understand bangla, they make such a face that as if I have done a crime..Money hoy mukhey dui lath mari.

Oh..yeah??All of the Nepali people I met, always starts with Hindi.And, make a huge face like 5 in Bangla alphabet when I say I don't speak Hindi.Don't get me wrong bro, my point is how come you people are so proud for language of another country?Or you people think India as your mother land?

And, in the last sentence you have written perfect Bangla.So, seems like you just can't speak your mother tongue, all other languages go fine with you.Take care man and try to learn your own mother-tongue first before criticizing others.:flag:

i personally think that this announcement of the 12-member squad prior to the start of the match should become an announcement of a 13 member squad, especially in case of BD. Its understandable that the final decision may depend on two bowlers (where one would be included over the other) or two batsmen. But the 12th man also needs to field at times, and why not take advantage of having a good fielder in the 14-member squad (i.e. Rajin in this case) ?

So if its really necessary to announce the so-called 12 member squad prior to a game, why not make it an announcement of a 13-member squad ? then if the bowler / batsman who's getting left out is also not the best fielder amongst the guys who're not in the playing XI, then the other choice, which is Rajin in most case, can be the 12th man and contribute a bit in the fielding dep't.

Afterall, i do think that there is no need for this "extra" announcement of 12/13 member squad prior to a game. Just announce the playing XI straight out of the 14 member full squad. Plain and simple.

We will be DOOMED.
Jawayardane, Tharanga, Jayasuria, Dilshan, Sangarkara can score 300 and Vaas and Maharoof can do 50 runs in 4 overs of Mash. So, we will be chasing a healthy total of 350.
On the other hand, we dropped Jr. for the sake of Ash-fool.

ok lets stop talking about what language ash spoke...personally i'm kinda glad he spoke hindi (yes i said it, and if you pseudo patriots have a problem with it, sue me).

ash speaking hindi automatically allows more ppl to hear him. thats a way a bangali gets on the stage in india. plus it might increase his/our fanbase (yes this sounds pretty dumb but its a hell of a lot smarter than what a lotta ppl have said in this thread already). imagine if tendulkar came to dhaka and spoke to reporters in bangla...

i have tons of respect for our heroic language martyrs, but for us to raise a fuss about ash speaking hindi in india to journalists is the dumbest thing i have heard of. there are a million and one things that are more deserving of our wrath.

As far as the representation goes, courtesy and attitude matter most to me. Not the language.

The only reason he can speak in other languages is the audience he is addressing. And definitely the person who asked him the question would not get a meaning out of what he said if he spoke in Bangla. Again, you don't want a representative of your country to say something that most people wouldn't understand, which even for a bit would make him look like a fool. Further if he can speak in hindi it would showcase his talent and ability to speak different languages.

We gotta learn to take it easy. Say, I am a guy who can speak only desi languages - bangla/urdu/hindi. Someones comes to me and asks me a question in english, I didn't understand whatever the heck he said. I ask him in Bangla as to what he said, and I figure he does not understand Bangla. So, I ask him in hindi/urdu as to what he said. This does not make me any what less Bangladeshi or love Bangladesh less than those who can't speak hindi/urdu.

It's just about communication and friendly gesture, thats what we should keep in mind and learn to take things easy.

Anyways, it was really an OFF-TOPIC discussion. If you get it good, or else we move on.
Ask a japanese or a french to speak in hindi. Don't forget there are Bengali speaking people in India too. I saw in Movers and Shakers and was quite shocked to learn that Munmun Sen won't/can't talk in Hindi! Despite Suman Shekhars repeated pleading she only spoke in English (while suman was carrying on with hindi). When asked how she managed to do so many hindi films, she simply answered "dubbing".
For Ashraful or any other cricketer of Bangladesh, I agree with others who say, it should be about highlighting language/culutre of his country.

I really dont see whats the big deal. I remember a Japanese ambassador in Bangladesh and former US Ambassador Harry K Thomas who learnt bangla and would speak in bangla in our tv channels and functions and programs. If they are ambassadors (political) and did that, and got appreciation from us, why is it so bad if our cultural ambassadors do sth reciprocal?

Toss Bangladesh have won the toss and chose to field. Mahela Jayawardene, Sri Lanka's captain, said that he would have liked to bat had he won the toss. So everyone is happy as we head into the first of the qualifying matches in the Champions Trophy.

I am Sriram Veera, and along with Jamie Alter, will bring you the live commentary for the day.

Pitch: There is lots of grass on the track albeit dry. The curator, Daljit Singh, was of the opinion that "the ball will carry through to the batsmen and seamers will be able to extract height, though it might be tough for the spinners as the ball may skid."

This kind of wicket is not for Rasel. :(

looks like a very good batting pitch. not much movement.

if we don't get wickets fast bashar will regret his decision to field first. If its such a good batting wicket y did he choose to bat first anyway.

Cricinfo's commentry is totally unprofessional:

8.4 Mashrafe Mortaza to Jayasuriya, FOUR, short outside off, even Jayasuriya's mom puts away those. Actually, not all that wide but the length allowed Jayasuriya to short-arm jab at it.

:doh:

on this wicket 280+ looks like par score.. since the openers have gotten lankans off to a good start i just hope our bowlers can restrict them to 300 or so runs

Almost all the winning teams in this ground batted first, DW must have soething in his mind about choosing to field, hope he is not wrong.

But the present situation is pathetic :(

9.4 Rasel to Jayasuriya, 1 run, good length delivery on the leg, Jayasuriya goes on the backfoot and flicks it away to mid wicket and with that FIFTY!! up for the SriLankans

THINGZ aint lookin too good...Mortaza was tight first up but Rasel failed to complement..hence all of them are being nailed

zman
October 7, 2006, 04:47 AM
shalar amago bhaggotai eirokom.. the batsman was totally defeated and he had no clue about that delivery, he scooped it in the air too yet he gets away with it as the ball drops in no man's land

This is how cricbuzz expressed :8.4 Mortaza to Jayasuriya, FOUR!!, back of a length delivery outside off, Jayasuriya goes on the backfoot and punches it to sweeper cover, that is a booming punch!!!

No clue why they decided to field. keeping them within 350 and then trying for a 'sommanjonok porajoy'? (180 -220)

i don't like the way jayasuriya is batting.. hez just looking too comfortable out there .. the lankan bhoot has scored three huge centuries in the recent past.. hope we can stop him b4 he really gets into one of those grooves again
