An interesting read from Zimbabwe Cricket:


<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=4 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top><TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=4 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>Zim, Bangladesh hunt for more records </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR><TR><TD vAlign=top height=267>
NOONE in the touring Bangladesh cricket team enjoys playing against Zimbabwe more than Shahriah Nafees Ahmed- the opening batsman who has scored three centuries against them in the same calendar year.
Nafees is in the Bangladesh squad awaiting the first of the four-match Croco Motors One-Day International (ODI) series with Zimbabwe on Sunday. Mehrab Hossain, who is also in the side, is the only other Tiger to have scored an ODI century against Zimbabwe.
In the current Zimbabwe side, noone has scored an ODI century against Bangladesh: a feat recorded previously by Grant Flower, Dion Ebrahim and Alistair Campbell. Stuart Matsikenyeri, however, is the overall third leading run-scorer between the two countries in ODIs. He lies third after Nafees and current Bangladesh skipper Habibul Bashar.
The best ODI partnership involving a player in the current Zimbabwe squad is 95 runs for the third wicket by current Zimbabwe wicketkeeper Brendan Taylor, who shared the stand with Barney Rogers in Dhaka in the 2004/05 season. Matsikenyeri and Elton Chigumbura hold the highest stand for the sixth wicket, a 114-run partnership in Harare, also in 2006.
Taylor was back in the thick of things again in November last year, getting involved in the thrilling series-clinching 85-run partnership for the eight wicket with Tawanda Mupariwa. Taylor lofted a six over mid-wicket to snatch a dramatic win for the hosts at Harare Sports Club. In ODI bowling records between the two countries, Bangladesh has recorded eight four-wicket hauls, left-arm spinners Manjural Islam Rana and Abdur Razzak grabbing two each. Razzak is in the Zimbabwe touring party. Veteran spinner Mohammed Rafique and promising pace bowler Masrafe Bin Mortaza, who are also in Zimbabwe for the Croco Motors series, are the other four-wicket takers in ODIs against Zimbabwe. In the current Zimbabwe side, three bowlers, all seamers, have taken four-wicket hauls. Two of the records were on the end-of-year tour to Zimbabwe in Bangladesh when Gary Brent took four for 22 runs in Dhaka, and Christopher Mpofu ended with four for 42 in Bogra.

What this report in the Daily Star (http://www.thedailystar.net/2007/02/04/d70204040130.htm)says? Rafique might be not included in the final 11.

It was learnt that there is a good chance for Sharif, who made his international debut in the country, as the condition would favour the seam bowlers and he has also the good ability to contribute with the bat in the late order. In that case veteran left-arm spinner Mohammad Rafique will be sidelined.

February 3, 2007, 05:24 PM
looks like the management prefer sharif over taposh. interesting.

well i wouldn't mind if rafique has to sit out, because razzak's easily been the better of the two in odi's in recent times, and the nature of the zimbabwean wickets usually facilitates quickies.

besides, we know that rafique is going to the WC for sure, so why not try out someone else? :) rafique is too high-profile to play in all of our matches :p

Starting from Dav, going to his right : official (name?), rafique, ash, aftab, mehrab, official (name ?), mushfiq. tushar is on mushfiq's left, followed by bashar, official (name?), razzak. on the back row, sharif, physio, sakib, nafees, tamim, tapash, official (name?), mashrafee, official (name?).

Where's Rajib ? I see 14 players, 7 non-players (coach, physio + 5 officials). So what am I missing ?

Unfortunately that format is not of a live scorecard. For a live scorecard you will have the time and stuffs that are mentioned. More over they do not list the first ODI in their live coverage. So, no hope at all. Giye ghumaya poren, kono fayda nai. BTW convey my salam and well wishes to bhabi (as if I know her since a long time, yea right!). :)

</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>Bangladesh and Zimbabwe meet so often in one-dayers at the moment that they must be heartily sick of the sight of each other. The four-match series which gets underway at Harare Sports Club on Sunday will be the third in six months, and the second in Zimbabwe. It's not that the two countries have any financial or geographical desire to play. The sad reality is that almost nobody else will slot them into their crowded schedules.
And so Bangladesh have made another grueling trip, via Doha and Johannesburg, to Harare. At least their travels end there as all four matches are being played at the one venue. Bulawayo, which usually gets a slice of the spoils, is off the itinerary. The country's desperate fuel shortages are a major factor in the equation. So little interest is there in the series that only this week was it confirmed that there would be television coverage, and even then only inside Zimbabwe. That's as long as viewers can follow the flow between power cuts.
The form guide suggests that Bangladesh should win this at a canter. The most recent meeting last December, in Bangladesh, ended in a 5-0 whitewash and since then Zimbabwe's fortunes have continued to plummet. They have now lost 12 ODIs on the trot and last week an A side in name, a virtuallyull side in reality, were hammered 3-0 by South Africa A.
It's not hard to see why it's hard for players to get motivated. Inflation has eroded their salaries to the extent they are barely worth collecting, and although the board is widely reported to be broke, many associated with it continue to enjoy a high standard of living.
Bangladesh, meanwhile, are on something of a roll. They have won 12 of their last 14 ODIs and have an air of quiet confidence about them. They will be aware that when they visited Zimbabwe last August they came unstuck and lost the series 3-2. Since then the two countries' fortunes have gone in completely opposite directions.
"I do not believe that Zimbabwe are a weak side, as said by most people but they I think they will actually help us develop our game," said Habibul Bashar, Bangladesh's captain, on arrival in town yesterday. "Look at what has been happening to us since we started playing them. If they were a weak side then what would be the point in being here at all for any matches?" A good question.
The slow home pitches and the altitude will give Zimbabwe a boost, but their form with the bat, which effectively won them the series last August, is a worry. In their last eight matches they have passed 200 once, and their bowlers just don't seem to have the firepower to bowl sides out.
For both, this is their final serious World Cup warm-up. Two thousand kilometers to the north in Nairobi the leading Associates are batting it out for the right to be considered the best of the rest. While none of them can seriously expect to overtake Bangladesh in the cricketing hierarchy, the disintegrating Zimbabweans are in their sights. Unless something dramatic happens in Harare, the next week will be another blow for the game here.

Indian domestic match is more imp than a ODI for cricinfo. :mad:

The situation is this. To get someone into Zimbabwe to cover the four matches would have cost us thousands of dollars, which we were prepared to pay. However ... firstly we needed to get the approval of the infamous Information ministry whose aim seems to be to avoid giving anyone access to the country. Secondly, even then we had no assurances that our people would be allowed to remain in the ground. It wa snot feasible to send people under these circumstances.

I am in constant contact with various people inside Zimbabwe and it seems that local TV has not switched to the match. The situation again verges on the farcical. If you still think that is Cricinfo's fault, then so be it.

We have local people but, as I say, the cricket has simply not appeared on TV and there has been no explanation. We have no-one at the ground because several stringers have been banned and another - and this is no joke - won't go as he fears for his personal safety if he does. And, to reiterate, to send ANY journalist to cover the matches means paying US$600 to the government with absolutely no guarantee that the individual will be allowed into the country on arrival or allowed into the ground.

There is no official Zimbabwe Cricket scoring either. You say Zimbabwe is not in the stone age ... it might not be, but the infrastructure is almost non existent.

I have spent three hours calling everyone and anyone to get this resolved and am continuing to do so. But it is as close to a farce as I have ever known and would not be tolerated in any other half-decent sport if top-ten countries were involved.

Ok, explain to me how. Clearly you know far more about this than I do, so what would <I>you</I> have done to ensure that there are score updates? All I would say is that had it been, say, India or Australia touring then the value of the TV pictures would have been several million $ and so ZC would have ensured there was production.

Martin, Cricinfo is a global site and holds the responsibilty to provide information to its global viewers. Correct me if I am wrong, It has also signed an official MOU with ICC to do that.

Now, Bangladesh is a minnow nation, no doubt and the TV rights value is not that great but this should not be the excuse to leave them hard and dry. In sports, it's not always business that should dictate the proceedings.

please mr.williamson, we dont mean to be rude. I know u have been doing ur best but its just hard for some of us to believe that bermuda, netherlands and canada matches are being covered and an ODI isnt.

The reason is simple. Cricket Kenya has welcomed overseas journalists and made all players and facilities available. There are also no restrictions imposed by the government. So, we have a scorer at every match, a few stringers and a full-time journalist out there to cover it. We cannot do that in Zimbabwe as the state has complete control over the media and it's not possible to get inside the country without jumping through many hoops. To give you an idea of what a mess it is, we have still not had official scorecards that add up for last week's A-team ODI between South Africa and Zimbabwe.

This is what cricinfo saying for not covering BD v ZIM live, "We apologise for the delay in updates from this match. We have been unable to get any journalists to Harare Sports Club and there is television coverage available outside Zimbabwe. We were expecting coverage inside the country but it has not materialised. We are working on resolving this."

February 4, 2007, 05:52 AM
Martin, Cricinfo is a global site and holds the responsibilty to provide information to its global viewers. Correct me if I am wrong, It has also signed an official MOU with ICC to do that.

Now, Bangladesh is a minnow nation, no doubt and the TV rights value is not that great but this should not be the excuse to leave them hard and dry. In sports, it's not always business that should dictate the proceedings.

I think you understand the reason behind our frustration.

I absolutely understand and share your frustration. To clarify, we have no such agreement with the ICC and are in no better/worse position that any other media outlet. My personal view is that the ICC has a responsibility to ensure that all major matches are covered and publicised.

As for TV rights - that's a commercial decision. The deals are such that the TV production company has to be able to recoup costs, and my understanding is that it was facing a loss of around $100,000 to broadcast this outside Zimbabwe. As late as Wednesday there was no deal in place to cover the games, so I would think the last-minute deal has had something to do with today's farce. TV Production trucks etc have to be driven up from SA for the matches as there are none in Zimbabwe.

Cricinfo aka Crapinfo is losing its credibility among Bangladesh fans. Whatever Mr. Martin says about the situation, I am pretty sure the situation would have been different if the touring country was not Bangladesh.

Very harsh comment indeed! MartinW has repeatedley tried to explain the situation. We just have to relax a little and hope for the best...yes, its very frustrating and thats understandable!

many thanks Martin for sharing the pain with us.

Thanks for clarifying about the MOU which I have heard in 2005.
