Nope, when it comes to A-team or other development team matches, there were quite a few occasions when we discussed a whole tour or more than one match in one thread. But, yes, none of those threads were marked as any special kind of threads.

As I said, A-team matches don't have much following (akabir77 is already complaining why Zimbabweans are still here), what's the point of creatinga a match thread that will probably die in its first page, especially when the thread requires quite a bit of work to gather all the related info .

Prosper Utseya, Brendan Taylor, Hamilton Masakadza, Gary Brent, Edward Rainsford all back in Zimbabwe.

Best reasons I could think of:

Utseya, because he is already a good player :)
Taylor, because he already has 10 Test's under his belt, they want to give the First Class experience to another youngster.
Masakadza, same reason as Taylor, except with 15 Test's.
Brent, likewise, but with 47 First Class games rather than Test's (only 4).
Rainsford, injury concern?

When does the game start, and will there be live updates on tigercricket or cricinfo?

Looks like Tapash Bhaisab is taking full advantage of the opportunity. He have already re-positioned himself as our 4th FB behind Mashrafee, Shahadat and Rasel and knocking the door already. One injury in top 3, and he is back in the team.

Not that I am excited about his bowling, but looks like he is becomming another slogger at lower end (better than Shahadat, Rasel, or even Pilot ) who can score quickly incase we need to compensate slow RR at the end of the innings.

The home side finished the day on 69/2 after dismissed the tourists for 146. Left-arm spinner Enamul Hoque (Jr) was the star of the show picking up a five-for as the Zimbabwean batsmen’s woes against left-arm spin continued. Pacer Mohammad Sharif grabbed three while Tapash Baishya took two wickets.
Sent into bat by Zimbabwe A on 29/2.
There was no relief for <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comhttp://banglacricket.com/alochona/ /><st1:country-region w:st=Bangladesh</st1:country-region> A skipper Tushar Imran the Africans struggled from the onset and Tapash clean bowled T. Hove with the sixth ball of the innings. Fellow opener Chamu Chibhabha also fell to Baishya to leave <st1:country-region w:st=" /><st1:country-region w:st="on">Zimbabwe</st1:country-region> when Tapash finished his splendid first spell as First change Mohammad Sharif and gifted left arm spinner Enamul joined the attack. Sharif went through the defenses of prime targets Stuart Matsikenyeri and Elton Chigumbura while Enamul sent back Nkala and Mawoyo. Zim A were in dire straits at 59/6 after just 21.4 overs.
The only resistance came after that when left-hander Sean Williams put on 50 runs with pace bowler Garwe but Enamul broke this partnership when he cleaned up Williams. Williams top-scored with 63 and played some delightful strokes. He smacked 11 boundaries on a pitch that was not easy to bat on. Once he departed Enamul wrapped up the innings after the tea with lbw victim Higgins his fifth wicket.
<st1:country-region w:st="on"><ST1:p</st1:country-region>
<st1:country-region w:st="on">Bangladesh</st1:country-region> A lost openers Javed Omar (14) and Gazi Salauddin (16) to Anthony Ireland’s medium pace. Captain Tushar Imran (23*) and Rajin Saleh (12*) ensured the first day finished without further casualties.

Still, this might deflate some of the egos that definately came about from the BD-Zim series. So, in short.....mixed feelings.

Either way, BD A as a whole played as well as the national team....Thats not very good news...Sure, you could dream that both the A team and the national team improved tremendously, but that would be going a bit too far. Also, if enamul was expected to play better than anybody in the BD national team, he would be playing for the ODI team right now against scotland instead of being stuck with the A side. I know, hes a test player. But still, hes great and all, but hes definately not the best bowler in bangladesh.

surprised that nobody has yet brought it up that this team has been playing as the Zimbabwe national team, and not as Zimbabwe A. Just that a few senior players has been left out (sent home) to give the new players a chance to get some FC experience under the belt. Recall that Zimbabwe national team's tour of Bangladesh was simply extended to accomodate these FC matches to go with the 5 ODIs. However, there still seems to be some confusion as Cricinfo labels this team as "Zimbabwe" in the match report, while lists them as "Zimbabwe A" in the Squads section.

Look at the batting line up of BD A:

1. Javed Omar - out on 14 - out of form, too
2. Gazi Salahuddin - not a National Team Player
3. Rajin Saleh - 12 not out on Day 1; probably out for 12. - 2nd most experienced test player in the team after javed omar
4. Tushar Imran - ever reliable for BD 'A' team - 34*
5. Monjurul Islam Rana - a spin bowling allrounder
6. Mohammad Sharif - specialist pace bowler cum allrounder
7. Tapash Baisya - specialist pace bowler cum allrounder
8. Md. Shahzada - Not a member of National team
9. Enamul Haque Jr. - specialist spin bowler
10. Mushfiqur Rahim - wicket-keeper - back up keeper to Pilot
11. Mahmudullah - Age group player

From the above lineup it seems that we played the game with only 4 specialist batsman.

Really pathetic batting performance. Bowlers did well to bowl Zimbabwe out again cheaply for 113. Shahzada picked up 4 wkts and Tapash and Sharif 3 wkts each. No complain about bowlers but BD batsmen really disappointed me. No matter what people say, to me its nothing more than a Zimbabwe A team without Taylor, Masakadza, Utseya and Rainsford. Our fav Rana scored a duck while Kapali managed to get only 7. Mirpur pitch can help faster bowlers a little bit but this batting performance is unacceptable.

Middle-order batsman Tushar, who has been frequently in and out of the senior team, was not ready to blame the pitch entirely rather emphasised on playing more cricket on this kind of wicket.

"I appreciate this kind of wicket though the ball cut too much on the second day. The swing and bounce were not bad at all. Actually the wicket suited the seamers more and I think we can take any challenge in abroad if we are accustomed to play on this kind of surfaces at home," said Tushar.

-DS

Quite happy to hear this from Tushar. BCB, if you are listening, arrange more practice matches on Mirpur.

If Saghir is keeping for the A-team, who will be keeping for the Academy team tommorrow ? I hope it will be Dhiman.

definitely we palyed terrible as far as batting is concern.But Two things are positive.
1.We won a close battle which is shown a strong character.

2. We are genuine A team (no 13 current national team palyer played).But zim team is like more then a half national team.(5 national team left still 6 in the team).

so, it is clear that zim(more then half national ) lost in a close match with A TEAM.

yea razzak and enamul are quite tall (they would tower over ash, aftab, rajin et al), razzak is 5-11 or 6 feet at the tallest (just shorter than mashrafee), enamul i don't know, but i would guess he is about an inch shorter than razzak.

so shahzada (the proper persian way to spell his name) is gonna be about tapash height, ie 5-8 at the tallest.

rasel is about 5-11 or 6-0

Fazal
December 13, 2006, 05:31 PM
Two things to look at:

1. Yes Enamul is tall, compared with other BD players. But he is definitely not taller than 5' 11". Most likely he(Enamul) is 5' 10" at best.

2. Look at the picture again. And look at their shoulders. there is atleast 3"+ inch difference.

Thefore my conclusion (based on those two facts), Shahjada (at present) cannot be any taller than 5' 8". He is in the 5' 6" to 5' 8" range. And most likely he is 5" 7".

A fair amount of bounce/swing is good enough for even the likes of Ireland to cause havoc among the Bangladeshi batsmen. This is where we are really at. Not playing tests for an year, coupled with endless one day games against Zim-kenya, will actually set our progression back I am afraid when we do start playing tests again. These are our second best available batsmen in the country and most ( if not all ) have played tests before. I am actually very dissapointed. I don't have much expectations for JO. His career is almost over. But, Tushar and Alok, both within a shot of the national team could not see through to the victory mark. And, last but not least, Rajin- Here is a guy, still batting at no.5 in the main test team, laboured for a 80 ball 23 and a 65 ball 22, and still got out before the job was done. If you are the main middle order batsman, you better ensure you don't get out specially after spending so many balls. He is just too damn negative. Staying in the wkt and not scoring translates into zero. That is his problem. His batting will add pressure to the guy batting with him, even in tests, and will inevitably lose it by this suffocating style. You have to take the attack to the bowlers when batting in the middle order. That doesn't mean throwing your wkt away like Tushar ( at least he had the right mind set ) or Alok . Bowlers start to dominate and you bring upon unnecessary pressure if you bat like Rajin. Not surprised with Rana and have nothing bad to say. He should not bat at no.5 in any pitch, let alone a bouncy one at Mirpur, and was duly exposed.

Four day match scorecard (http://cricketarchive.com/Archive/Scorecards/107/107482.html)

Zimbabweans, we can say, had their best day of the entire tour yesterday. They have scored 276/4 after the first day with both Williams (82) and Matsi (68*) scoring fifties.

Since the curator was criticized during the last match for making the wicket too pacer friendly, it seems he made it very batting friendly this time.

Rana got replaced in this match with Marshal Ayub, so BD-A has only one specialist spinner in Enamul.

Getting a result out of a four dayer from a batting friendly pitch is quite unlikely, unless the pitch changes its character this game will most probabaly end in a draw, Still should be good for some batting practice.

Thanx roi for the update. It is really pleasing to see the score, where BD A is poised with a comfortable point os superiority and dominance. Moreover, the result shows that BD pacers got much more wickets than the spinners, which is not in the favour of Zimbos.

Bangladesh A seems to be more fluent in scoring among the two teams. Bangladesh A innings rr 3.69 compared Zim A's 3.04.

Look at the collapse

5-283 (Chigumbura, 89.6 ov), 6-283 (Matsikenyeri, 90.1 ov), 7-287 (Dabengwa, 93.1 ov), 8-292 (Higgins, 95.3 ov), 9-292 (Cremer, 95.6 ov), 10-293 (Mpofu, 96.3 ov)

Shahzada really mopped up the late middle order and tail.

He can beat his first class record which he made in 2005 tour of England: 167 against British Universities at Cambridge.
He has a slow strike-rate, but he can be the best partner for Shariar Nafees in Test cricket... when Bangladesh will finally play that again!

Mehrab is not yet in the test fold and Javed is not yet out of the test team.

Interesting to see that Jahurul, who is generally considered a slow scorer, scored quite fast in this match (inspired by Tamim ?). He and JO put up 111 runs in 23.4 overs in one day style. Then came Rajin and Tushar and slowed down the run rate. JO-Marshal pair scored almost 4 runs per over, so I guess they are ok.

Javed should continue with test opening. Mehrab is not ready yet for TEST.

The way Mehrab is playing selectors might think him to give him a try in test matches but Javed Omar is still very good indeed for the test matches for sure . We just hope he makes 200 today :) .

That thinking has gone to vain for sure :) .

Mehrab looked to be a much better defensively solid player than Defintely JO. But, Somehow, he looked pretty poor with the strokes. He has the correct set of mind to be a grafter.. but, he needs to improve on his strokeplay. Although, I like him a lot, but, I think, atleast for the oneday version, he needs to improve on his strokeplay.

Oh...!! our good ol' JO..
well done mate... very well done...
thats what you call a timely knock..

Looks like our batsmen are learning thier lessons..

I hope JO has become history like Rokon, Hannan, Sezan.

Even if he breaks Lara's record of 501, we still need to think twice before bringing him back.

Our BD A team is very unstable....Theres always a quick fall of wickets, no matter what, mebbe cuz there are so many of the unpredictable players we used to have in the national team..

As they say, early winter morning Fatullah has good seam movement on it. Also, like Bangladesh yesterday, Zimababweans had the opportunity to take the new ball this morning (you can take a new ball after every 80 overs). However, it is still disappointing how our middle and late order folded in this innings.

JO is still the opener in the TEST. He was never droppped from there.

Zimbabweans had the easiest day of the tour-

ZIM A 293 & 290/3</B>
BAN A 380/10</B> -Javed 173
4 Day Match at Fatullah (15-18 December 2006)
Result: Match Drawn

As far I am concerned, BD-A won the series 1-0.

I hope JO has become history like Rokon, Hannan, Sezan.

Even if he breaks Lara's record of 501, we still need to think twice before bringing him back.

i think mehrab is perfect for the test job...Jo will give u 20 or 30 max...and once in 10 innings a 50...we have to move beyond that.

I can't not make anything out of Mehrab from the ODIs he played so far, but Rajin's current form definately gives hope to JO to make the WC squad as a backup opener.

According to media, Javed played in a completely different way and used shots like pull and hook frequently which were not in javed's book before.

If he can back up the score with some more fluent fifty in the premier league he will be a big contender for the World Cup squad.

I don't mind if he can perform and correct flaws in his technique as I am really concerned about the approach of Mehrab Jnr. in the ODI.

I doubt very much that he will be able to correct him self in this age. but then again if he can we shurly will need him in WC.
