I dont think i have ever seen BD batsmen play with such authority, with such confidence before. Just forgetting who's the opposition for a second, there's so much composure in all the scoring shots that these two batsmen are playing. Just gotta maintain the application against better opponents, and the future certainly looks very very promising.

Just gotta maintain the application against better opponents, and the future certainly looks very very promising.

I believe Nafees is the first Bangladeshi batsman for whom we do not have to put up excuses like "he is so talented but...". After a decent run of matches, your runs and average should prove how good you are. Promises which are not bankable does not help the side.

I am not sure what Aftab's average is for the last 10 or so matches but he still needs to curb his enthusiasm somewhat.

On the bowling side, Razzaq has joined Rafique to form another reliable ODI bowler.However, I still would like to see Rasel with the new ball.

No, you are correct ! When you have a weight of runs behind you, you don't care whether you have the label "talented" !

After all, the most talented batsman in the universe is sucking his thumb in the dressing room right now, contemplating whether he will even get a bat for the second match running !

Well, when the partnership is going so well and the other batsman is playing shots all over the ground..why does he needs to hurry up runs and play a bad shot in the process??

BD's highest opening partnership belongs to Shahriar and Mehrab, but not this pair. Yes, Biddyut and Opee partnered up for 170 against Zimbabwe in Meril Cup in 1998 at Dhaka.

Agreed. This is not a criticism but Mehrab should realise this is about the most congenial non-pressurised environment he is likely to face in an international match. He should use this opportunity valuably by practising and mastering basic ODI skills like rotation etc.

Mehrab Jnr(lefty JO) has got good defensive strokes but he is not showing any aggressive attitude after playing sucha long time. He needs to go for big hit now which is important in ODI.

One thing he didn't consider that present BD can beat a team like Zim without any help whatsoever from him. Ashraful expected time will stand still for him but never considered it doesn't matter anymore if he scores a 100 or not because BD has got genuine batters like SN.

Protic
December 3, 2006, 11:32 AM
I've watched the whole match LIVE..comment on BD's batting
Shahriar Nafees - he played very well..some risks..but calculated. His out was not his fault aswell..Williams took an awesome catch.
Mehrab Hossain Jr - played ok..throughout.. and the way of getting out was fair enough..not many mistakes just a good catch from Taylor.
Aftab Ahmed - Just a bad day!
Sakibul Hasan - Awesome batting. Only .5 mistakes out of 100..got run out for Mehrab's weak understanding of run.
Habibul Bashar - Well .. a captain's knock. He impressed me..actually :) he looked confident all the way (unlike Ash's starting )
Mohammad Ashraful - Okey..Just Okey.

I guess..bad days of our tailenders are erasing slowly..coming out and survive for 50 overs every match..no more ..:P
THATS ANOTHER POINT FOR REPLACING PILOT WITH RAHIM for atleast 2 matches or so..we can risk playing Rahim..because we barely need Mashud's slow,thinkful,awful batting..now.
He can stay in the test arena.

ialbd
December 3, 2006, 12:24 PM
well played BD.... I dont feel like following this series ball-by-ball anymore. But undoubtedly this series is giving our batsmen their confidence back. Chasing 250+ wont be an issue now...

billah
December 3, 2006, 12:26 PM
Hablu is talking too much, although he had almost NOTHING to do with the wins. The architect of the wins was SN. Hablu, in his whole career, has never come across a player with this type of tenacity and mindframe. I think Bashar should acknowledge it more. I think the biggest warning we have in these two matches so far:

Our pace attack is become completely toothless. We must try out newer, faster pacers in this series, after our third win...

al Furqaan
December 3, 2006, 12:31 PM
Our pace attack is become completely toothless. We must try out newer, faster pacers in this series, after our third win...

relax...firstly mash, rajib, and rasel are the three best we got. no newbies will be able to do anything these guys aren't already doing. at least not for the forseeable future.

the pacers only had 1 wicket between them in first match, and finished with 3 today. i just don't think the wickets are that good for them. especially in khulna, wicket was damn flat. if we batted first, we would have scored at least 270+. khulna wicket was a 300 wicket, not a 184 wicket. zim just aren't that good.

Miraz Bhai, the same comment has been made by ex-cricketer Rakibul Hasan in an interview immediately after the match. He repeated that today's match by Bangladesh (particularly batting) was simply professional.

Sam
December 3, 2006, 01:37 PM
Here is a comment in the CI bulletin "Nafees and Mehrab set up easy win (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/bdeshvzim/content/current/story/270982.html)" on today's match, which is worthy to put attention:
This result, coupled with Bangladesh's nine-wicket win in the opening match, continues to suggest there is even a noticeable gulf appearing between these two teams - especially in sub-continental conditions.
And it is right.

I don't think there is any pacer in Bangladesh who is faster than Mashrafee or Shahadat. The pitch is really spin friendly and there is no life in the pitch for the pacers to make anything out of it. The ball didn't even carry to the keeper sometimes and I think Mashrafee and Shahadat did a decent job.

Our pace attack is become completely toothless. We must try out newer, faster pacers in this series, after our third win...

lets do something like closup1 in cricket. find best three batsmen. use three best cricketrs or coaches as judges from australia.

In the last two matches, both Mash and Rajib seemed to have lost their rhytms. But I don't think bringing newbies in the team is the answer here. What we need now is a good bowling coach.

Well, when mash got married we knew what was coming. I don't know about rajib, why he is below per. however, i do not see anyone else who is more capable at this moment. may be days are coming when we have to open with SLA's.

well first off, the pitch wasn't really assisting the quickies, or so i've read. secondly, this was a D/N game with the pacers bowling early in the afternoon, when the sun is out and conditions are pretty dry. so i guess the weather wasn't helping them either.

having said that, I would like to see them do better in the last two games - had this been a stronger opponent, they'd probably have got belted.

but it's ok; let's see how they fare in the next couple of games.

What is the Average of SN now? If he goes on like this, at the end of the series, he will have a 50 + average :)

He needs a max of 375 runs in the rest of the three matches to reach a 50 avg (i.e. if he gets out on all three occassions). :)

Mashallah. 41.66 is great...specially with 3 centuries and 6 half centuries in just 30 ODIs. But can't help notice that he only got 3 sixes in his career! Nafees...hit some sixes boy!

I watched BD batting last night and was a bit worried the way SN started his batting...May be Zim bowlers were not really upto the mark but with a decent pacers he should play with better defence. Too many shots were played.
