Rafiq is injured.By the way can NADIF bowl? We need a medium fast bowler as well as bats man Alrounder. Atleast Farhad can do it sometimes. But We need atleast 2 more.

No live feed..so sad. I don't understand what contract BCB did with Nimbus. They should have cleared that every ODI has to be aired live. I just can't believe this. Does the present contract say matches with the associates members won't be covered? If anyone knows pls clarify.

akabir77
December 14, 2006, 08:37 PM
Any team can win in ODI. So they got 40% chance to win today's game. BD has no clue who plays how and where. so they have no stats on them. Hamilton might have intensionally got out so that bd player can't figure out what his weakness is...
So today its going to be a close game

Looking forward for a blasting performance from our boys.Today we should put those fat-mouth scotts in grave.

I will go with the team of Miraz bhai.Looks good to me.As Rafiq is missing the match, I would feel it with a batsman like Nadif.Apart from Razzaq we have Sakib and Mehrab in our SLA-artilary.Mash and Shahadat will serve the pace fine and if necessary we can call Aftab for couple of overs.His medium pace was not bad.He should be tried more often, I think.

my thinking is exactly this...but i think we should wait for both ODIs to be concluded for this judgement.

December 14, 2006, 09:21 PM
Bashar seems to be reluctant to bat first. He wants to let the top four batsmen to finish the business that he eventually does not have to bat. I think that he has started to doubt his batting capability. Let us see what our "Most Talented batsman" Ashraful does today. He is supposed to demostrate that he is consistant although that will be too much asking to him.

to date, no full member-associate member ODIs have been televised. remember when SL pounded 440+ on Holland? it wasn't televised.

there just isn't much of market for it. even Bangladesh fans (who would be the most eager to watch such a series) prolly won't be that hyped.

this match thread will prolly finish with less than 300 posts.

We may have to keep refreshing the Cicinfo or cricbuzz pages for the update. The Scottish are more interested in soccar than cricket and are the Dutch. If one home market is not viable, the commercial value diminishes for the broadcasters.

It was their first match on this soil, although our Academy team beat them, i think we are yet to know their real strength, to me it will be a easy win for us but we paid the price of being over confident in zimbabwe. Hope we dont repeat that. beside winning the series lets pray Nafees finishes the year with a grand and Mashrafee becomes the leading wkt taker with Razzak folowing him closely

It is safe to assume that Mashrafee will end up being the highest wicket taker in ODIs for the 2006 calendar year. He has 45 so far, and needs 2 more to eclipse Nathan Bracken. Australia do not have any more ODIs in 2006.

2006 - Most ODI wickets (http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/STATS/BY_CALENDAR/2000S/2006/ODI_BOWL_MOST_WKTS_2006.html)

In batting, Nafees needs 27 runs more to reach the 1000 runs plateau for this calendar year as well. He would be the 5th batsman to do so this year after Gayle and the 3 Lankans - Sangakkara, Jayawardene and Jayasuriya.

2006 - Most ODI runs (http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/STATS/BY_CALENDAR/2000S/2006/ODI_BAT_MOST_RUNS_2006.html)

shahadat sent down 3Wides and 1 no-ball already! This is a bigger concern with him as far as I can see. Against Zim as well, he gave on an average 10-12 extra runs for every complete spell. Needs to tidy up his one day spells. Cut down his pace if he has to and take care of this problem in ODI's.

I want the world to know that theres a Gap the size of the Atlantic Ocean between BD and the Associates and that were 2 Cuts above them and Zimbabwe but just a cut below the other 8 test playing nationsThe World Cup will be much more important for doing that than this 2-match series with Scotland. There will be lots of matches for 16 teams from all over the world, all trying their best.

But with that many matches going on, upsets are bound to happen. I doubt the top 8 nations will be the final 8. One or two of them will probably lose, most likely England or India.

This series is Scotland's first cricket in many months, while Bangladesh have played in more than a dozen ODI's since Scotland's last match. So Scotland may use that as an excuse. (And it might be a legitimate excuse too.)
