Well, I am pretty excited- my favourite Bangladeshi team (BCCB Academy) has a good chance to win a match against a top associate country.

Since it is a practice match, both teams will probably play their full squads in rotation.

The academy team keeper Saghir is currently with the A-team, so I have no idea who is keeping for the academy team today. Mushfiq ? Dhiman ? Golam Mabud ? Mithun Ali (U/19 keeper) ?

Squads:

Scotland
Navdeep Poonia (RHB)
Fraser Watts (RHB)
Ryan Watson (RHB, OB)
Gavin Hamilton (LHB, RMF)
Neil McCallum (RHB)
Douglas Lockhart (RHB)
Omer Hussain (LHB)
Dougie Brown (RFM, RHB)
Colin Smith (WK, RHB)
Craig Wright (RM, RHB)
Paul Hoffmann (RMF)
John Blain (RFM)
Glenn Rogers (SLA)
Majid Haq (OB)
Ross Lyons (SLA)

BCCB Academy
Nazmus Sadat (LHB, SLA)
Jahurul Islam (RHB)
Tamim Iqbal (LHB)
Marshal Ayub (RHB, LB)
Nadif Chowdhury (RHB)
Sirajullah Khadim (LHB, LM)
Keeper ???
Suhrawadi Shuvo (SLA, LHB)
Ishraq Sonet (RMF, RHB)
Mosharraf Hossain (SLA, LHB)
Dolar Mahmud (LMF)
Shafaq Al Zabir (LMF)
Rezaul Islam (OB)

Venue: Bir Shrestha Shahid Ruhul Amin Stadium, Chittagong

The game is on 14th (checkout dailystar).

I hope the academy gives a good fight against scotland. Also good thing will be if we dont bowl any left arm spinner against them and have them face Razzak and co for the first time on 15th. This way they will be totally clueless against the spinners.

Go BCCB Academy :)

The game was scheduled to be played on 13th but they decided to stay in dhaka one more day. So they are playing the game on 14th. Doesn't matter whether we play a left arm spinner or not, they will be clueless against Razzak. One game won't teach the scots how to play spin if they don't know it already.

Thanx for the video man. Yeah, he seems pretty swift, although i cant say the same for his elegance. The second shot was straight up terrible (in terms of elegance). What does DK stand for, anyway? Their bowlers dont seem that great, but then again, I might just be digging up anything that would make me feel more confident of beating them after watching those sixes!:-D

Only the third shot was well played. The field looks pretty small...and the unenthusiastic crowd almost put me to sleep! Moreover, even a monkey should be able to make that full toss into a clean hit. Terrible bowling I would say.

But it tells you one thing...can't get away with such bowling!

however, i do get the feeling that the scottish batting is better than their bowling, as is/should be the case with most developing teams.

According to Cricket Scotland, Scotland are about 80-3.
They lost 3 of the top 4 very cheaply, but Navdeep Poonia of Warwickshire is unbeaten on 56, and is now joined by another Warwickshire player, Dougie Brown.

I'm a bigger fan of the BCB Academy side than our national team.....i bet our national team will not make more runs against the same Scottish outfit. Same old story:

Nafees....50
Mehrab.....30
Aftab.....oops i tried to sweep a 90mph yorker for six
Ash.....oops i just had a little dabble at that one and edged/mistimed/mis-hit/saw a hot girl
Habibabi....umm....yeh....i don't feel like batting otday
Sakib.....60
Masud.....yeh i'll do like Habibabi
Rafique.....23 off 5 balls
Masri.....24 off 6 balls
Razzak.....10
Shahadat 1

Total: 200-220

And then Razzak will get all 10 scottish wickets and Habibabi will say that it was a great performance by the team. All BS.

From http://www.cricketscotland.com/

In the warm-up match against the Bangladesh Academy in Chittagong today, the Academy posted 252 for six (50 overs). On a flat pitch, the seamers had no encouragement and the hosts were 160 for two before the Scots bowlers got a grip on the rest of the innings. Skipper Craig Wright was the pick of the bowlers, and Majid Haq took three wickets in the last 10 overs.

Bowling: Blain 4-0-21-0, Hoffmann 6-1-24-0, Watson 5-0-25-0, Brown 7-0-33-0, Wright 6-1-21-2, Lyons 7-0-39-1, Haq 7-0-35-3.

Scotland's batting also started poorly, with Watts 4, Watson 1 and Hamilton 11 out. But Poonia, with a promising 63, Brown 42* and McCallum 24* took the score to 154 for four after 35 overs.

Its in their blood. I am sure they have their excuses ready if they loose the ODIs too. They are using our condition as a cover, but the truth is condition was never an issue when we visited them.

Scotland 219 Over - 47.2 (Poonia 63, Macculum 57, Brown 47; Rubel 4/32, Dollar 2/37)
Result: BCCB Academy won by 33 runs. (Practice match at the BSSRAS, Chittagong on 14 December 2006) Toss won by Nadif Chy. (BCCB Academy)

This is the brief scorecard from TC.

Rubel, another SLA did the damage in the Scot's innings. They will be facing a disciplined army of SLA's in the ODI against Bangladesh.

I am not happy that Rafiq is rested for the first ODI.

I have read all their reports in their homepage and you can almost feel their overindulged superiority even though evidence at hand suggests otherwise. Some of the reports written by none other than the players pitifully described the poverty and chaos of Dhaka.
I wish them well in the series, but also ask them to take the positive sides of their visit to Bangladesh.

So, is BCCB that good or Scotland is that bad?

I think the answer is in the middle. I think BCCB will also give a hard time to our national team.

So far what we have seen during the whitewash series against ZIM is:

1. Bangladeshi Spinners were great,
2. FB were OK and
3. Batting excluding SN was close to pathetic.

I would like to see our National team play five ODI against this BCCB team ( not our team-a consists of Rajin, Gullu, Alok and co.)

It appears more SLA are available in bangladesh in cricket. Matter of fact i have yet to see a genuine right arm leg break except Kapali (he was a batting allrounder)

roaring tigerz
December 14, 2006, 09:59 AM
If Rafiq's not playing in the first ODI, who's our second specialist spinner? This was the perfect time to try Enam Jr. in the ODIs. Everyone who has seen him closely unanimously certifies Enam as the best spinner in the country. Then surely he is the most obvious choice,right? If no new players are added to the squad, I have a feeling we will go with Farhad for the all-rounders spot.
The warm up win is definitely a morale booster, but I still believe the Scots will run our team pretty close. Where we are in our cricket, complacency is the last thing we should be contemplating. Plus, this was their first game in Bangladesh. In absolutely foreign conditions, it takes time to acclimatise. Their performance will only get better in future matches. In the end, we should have enough quality to win both the games with a little to spare, if we play to our potential...

December 14, 2006, 10:02 AM
I don't think our national team can whitewash our academy team. It will be more like 3-2 if they play a five game series. Our academy team is really exciting with so many good players and our board should definately arrange some games between this two teams before the world cup.

Fazal
December 14, 2006, 10:06 AM
I think, for first ODI they are going with the following bowlers:

1. Mashrafe
2. Shahadat ( or Rasel)
3. Razzak ( 1st Spinner)
4. Sakib ( 2nd Spinner)
5. Mehrab ( 3rd Spinner)
6. Farhad ( 3rd MFB) --- not sure if he will be in the 1st ODI team

Plus Aftab and Ash can bowl few overs to make up Sakib/Mehrab's slot.

Now whether they would go with Farhad (kind of All rounder) or go with Nadif ( batsman) that is the question.

BCB is arranging a exhibition match between Shaheed Mushtaque XI and Shaeed Jewel XI in the victory day.

Shaheed Mushtaque XI is virtually the BCCB academy team without Nadif, but most of the players of Shaheed Jewel XI (except four or five of them - highlighted) are quite unknown to me.

Can anyone shed more light ?

Dhaka, Dec 14 (bdnews24.com) – Bangladesh Cricket Board will organise an exhibition match Saturday to celebrate the Victory Day.

BCB Thursday announced two teams for the match to be held at Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium.

Mahmudullah Riad will lead Shaheed Mushtaque and Sabbir Khan captain Shaheed Jewel XI.

Squad: Shaheed Mushtaque XI -- Mahmudullah Riad (Captain), Nazmus Sadat, Tamim Iqbal, Uttam Kumar, Shirajullah Khadem, Dhiman Ghosh, Mosharraf Hossain Rubel, Ishraq Sonnet, Sajjidul Islam, Rezaul Islam Rajon, Suhrawardi Shuvo, Nazmul Hossain, Kamrul Islam and Humayun Kabir.

Shaheed Jewel XI -- Sabbir Khan (Captain), Imroz Siddique, Naeem Islam, Farhad Hossain, Mahmudul Hasan Limon, Nadimuddin Mintu, Tapash Ghosh, Alamgir Kabir, Rumman Islam, Arif Hossain, Arafat Salahuddin, Ziaur Rahman and Gazi Salahuddin.

Now whether they would go with Farhad (kind of All rounder) or go for Nadif ( batsman) that is the question.

I'd go for Nadif as Aftab will definitely match Farhad as a bowler against Scots.

BCB is arranging a exhibition match between Shaheed Mushtaque XI and Shaeed Jewel XI in the victory day.

Shaheed Mushtaque XI is virtually the BCCB academy team without Nadif, but most of the players of Shaheed Jewel XI (except four or five of them - highlighted) are quite unknown to me.

Can anyone shed more light ?

Cannot recognize specifically, some names in Shaheed Jewel sounds very familiar. My guess is they are the next generation of players ages between 15 and 17. Most likely we will here more about them during the next u-19 tournament.

Scotland: 6 were bowled out, 2 caught, and 2 lbw.

However, the 3 batsmen that performed well, did so with excellent strike rate. To me, these 6 bowled outs negate all credibility of these batsmen...although it's debatable.

If I had to choose between Nadif and Forhad, I would probably go with Nadif. I just want to see how good he really is. Mehrab/Ash/Aftab should be good enough to share 10 overs among them.

I am kind of minority here. If you ask me, I would like both of them.

I kind of like Farhad, not for his bowling but for his batting. I saw some potential there, I also hope Nadif get some chance.

So who Nadif should replace?

[hints... another lower end batsman.]

You guess it right.:-D

After seeing Mehrab in the Zimbabwe series I think he is not suitable for ODI's. He is just another JO with a bit more elegance and better technique. I would like to try our either Nadif or Tamim Iqbal as our opener with SN. I havent seen either of them play so I am eager to see both in action .

I am really happy to see that BCB Academy have dented the sky-high confident of the Scottish Rampant Lions.
But on the other hand, our BD team should not be complacent by the outcome of the match. I still believe that, it will be tougher match against the Scottish Team than the last ODIs against Zimbabwe.

Shaheed Jewel XI: Sabbir Khan (captain), Imrose Siddiqui, Naeem Islam, Farhad Hossain, Nasir Hossain, Mahmudul Hasan, Nadimuddin Mintu (wicketkeeper), Taposh Ghosh, Alamgir Kabir, Rummon Islam, Arif Hossain, Arafat Salahuddin, Ziaur Rahman and Gazi Salahuddin.
This is a mix between NCL leading performers (Shabbir Khan, Zunaid Siddique, Naeem Islam, Farhad Hossain, Alamgir Kabir, Arafat Salahuddin, Ziur Rahman, and Gazi Salahuddin) and the next U/19 batch (Mahmudul Hasan, Nasir Hossain, Nadimuddin, Tapash Gosh (another SLA :-D ), and Rumman Islam). I don't know at what catagory Ashraful's old buddy Arif Hossain fall into.

The above is the BCCB bowling scorecard of the practice match.
Interesting to point to note: Safaq AL Zabir opened the bowling for BCCB Academy and delivered a maiden over. And that's it--the match was over for the opening bowlers with just 1 over. Whereas Sohrawardi Shuvo's bowling was used for 8 overs and he gave 7 runs per over in his 8-0-56-0 spell. I wonder why!!:confused:

lol..looks like we produce more sla's than anyone else in the world. so it's becoming more of a bangladeshi thing than, say, a subcontinental thing. i wonder why, though. what makes us different from india/pakistan/sri lanka? certainly rafique can't be that big a role-model? i mean he's probably the best sla in the world, but initiating the birth of a never-ending chain of quality sla's is revolutionary, to say the least.

also, in a country where writing with your left hand or doing anything with the left part of your body for that matter is discouraged from an early age, it's surprising to see how many start off bowling with their left arms.

good stuff. maybe one day we'll have three sla's in reply to a single warne, murali, panesar or vettori.

My best guess is Shafaq got injured after bowling the first over and thus couldn't bowl anymore.

There are couple of reasons I can think of why we have so many sla.

1. We have more right handed batsmen than left handed. Since it is easier for sla to get more wickets against righties, they are more successful.
2. Compare to right arm legspin, left arm orthodox is easier to control.

Since they are more successful, they get to stay in the team and develop.

After Zimbabwe, it is very much a case of "next, please" as fans of the Tigers anticipate another application of superiority over erstwhile peers. But the research has been done. Drinnen, Wright and Watson gained further insight into the imminent challenge when wandering around Dubai airport in the small hours of Sunday night, when they bumped into Zimbabwe coach Kevin Curran.

Curran, having just fled the scene of the slaughter, was well placed to identify the many strengths and fewer weaknesses of opponents who have an acute grasp of what is needed to win games on their home patch.
So the Scots thought they knew how it is like to play here :-D

There is a difference between knowing the weakness and exploiting the weakness. I know what is the Ganguly's weakness but I am not good enough of a bowler to take advantage of that weakness. Same thing can be said abuot ZImbabwe's coach.

man, the scots are making this series sound like it's the world cup finals!

they come from England's vicinity... what do you think! It's in their collective attitude - full of arrogance and inability to stand a minnow's success!

anyway, just wondering... Nadif first emerged through the NCL as a spin bowling allrounder, was a SLA infact. But then If I remember correctly, he was reported for suspect action. And now he doesnt bowl anymore... so what was in the report ? Couldnt Nadif fix his action if he was faulty at all ? Is that also why he has turned primarily into a hard-hitting batsman ?

on another note, Naeem Islam, one of the players selected to play for the Shaheed Jewel XI in 16 December's exhibition match, was the opening partner of Roqibul in the last U-19 world cup. So he is not that unknown, as some of the others in that team are.

Nadif was reported to ICC back in 2004, during the U/19 WC in Bangladesh. I too wonder why he could not fix himself in the last two years, especially when he was trained under McInnes for quite a long time. Or is it that he is just a habitual chuker ?

Naeem Islam was actually Nafees Iqbal's openning partner back in 2004.

:flag: <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=4 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=newsdetails vAlign=top>This is from the Daily Star of Dhaka.


Local hero Tamim Iqbal struck a superb hundred to send visiting Scotland crashing by 33 runs against Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Academy in a warm-up match at the Chittagong Divisional Stadium yesterday.


Winning the toss, BCB Academy skipper Nadif Chowdhury elected to bat first and his side scored 252 for six in 50 overs. Scotland failed to chase down the stiff target and were bowled out for 219 in 47.2 overs.

The young opener started off in uncharacteristic fashion as his opening partner Nazmus Sadat dominated their opening stand, adding 60 for the first wicket. But Sadat's loss and the quick dismissal of Jahurul Islam -- both to Scotland skipper Craig Wright -- did not deter the young side.

Number four Nadif joined Tamim in the 16th over and both batsmen flourished on a batsman's paradise. Tamim cut loose after reaching his half-century, hitting sixes and fours at will.
The left-handed Tamim scored his hundred in 133 balls, hitting nine boundaries and four sixes while Nadif smashed a couple of sixes and five fours in his 76-ball 68.

The local boy could not hide his delight while saying, "I am particularly happy to score a century that proved instrumental for my team's win.
"I am looking forward to scoring more hundreds this season," said Tamim.

After both batsmen fell to Majid Haq, Marshall Ayub and Sohrawardi Shuvo added some important runs to the total. Haq took three wickets while the two early wickets from skipper Wright was the other notable bowling contribution.

The visitors, who take on Bangladesh in the first one-day international today, fell into early trouble as seamer Ishraq Sonnet picked up opener Fraser Watts and one-drop Ryan Watson with the score on 14. But Navdeep Poonia batted well in a quickfire 63 off 73 balls, with the help of nine fours and a six.

Experienced campaigner Dougie Brown who failed to take a wicket, scored 47 runs but it was Neil McCullum who gave his side some hope as he also hit a fifty off 57 balls. But his dismissal ended their battle as the last wickets fell quite cheaply with left-armer Mosharraf Hossain adding two wickets to his earlier scalps of Gavin Hamilton (11) and Brown.

Sonnet, Sirajullah Khadem and Dollar Mahmud all took two wickets each for the young Academy side, whose skipper was content with his boys' effort.

"This is something great for me as my team won the match under my captaincy here", he said.
"They (Scotland) lacked real strike bowlers and as a result failed to pose any threat for us," Nadif observed. :flag:

Im sorry, i guess i wasnt too clear in the last post. What i was talking about was zimbabwes continued effort to make S. Nafees play away from his body (as everyone knows he doesnt use his feet too much at first). They must have been instructed by their coach to do that. I feel that that was a pretty rash decision, as, with their pace, all that they could come up with were easy, wide balls that gave Nafees more than enough room to smash it to the boundary. The coachs "observations" were nothing more than crude, obvious ideas that ended up hurting them rather than helping them.
