I thought Pilot was going to play as Wicket Keeper?

Pilot turned it down......Any news on live updates?

I thought Pilot was going to play as Wicket Keeper?

To answer your question on a temporal basis:

Step 1: Pilot turns down offer
Pilot declined to play for the A-team stating he is not "mentally prepared" to play at this point.

-bdnews24

Good news for the young wicket keepers such as Dhiman (made an unbeaten century ) and Golam Mabud (scored 63 runs) who are doing well in NCL. Or the selectors still want to go with Saghir ?


Step 2: Sagir makes use of the opportunity

England A Vs BCB National Academy
England A327/4 (dec) Over -91; Compton 152*, Prior 82*, Jefferson 58; Riyad 2/42
BCB National Academy326/10 Over -86.4; Nadif 74, Sagir 70, Nasiruddin 58; Broad 3/99, Bresnan 2/23, Yardy 2/46
End of day two



Step 3: Sagir competes with Dhiman
After Pilot's refusal to play for A team, Sagir is making a good fight for the place. Nice competition going on between Sagir and Dhiman. :)

Step 4: Sagir kills hopes for Dhiman
Even yesterday I thought Dhiman had a chance, but today Saghir pretty much destroyed it. Dhiman's century against a depleted Rajshahi attack (without Shahzada and Suhrawadi) obviously does not carry that much weight as Saghir's seventy against English bowlers with international experience.

Step 5: Sagir makes it to the A-team
According to Amar Desh (http://www.amardeshbd.com/detail_news_index.php?sub_section_id=8&NewsID=96708&NewsType=bistarito&SectionID=home), Sagir got the nod to keep wicket for the A team.


Phew.

Gee thats no good, they should try hard to reach 200 runs which is unlikely but the last 5 wickets can pull of 150 runs if they all put on 30 to 40 run partnerships. It must be a really bad pitch or possibly good bowling from Eng A or bad batting from BD A

Sagir showed today what this new generation wicket keepers can offer.

Pilot's refusal is a definite blessing in disguise. If Pilot was in the score would have been 120/8.

A good recovery. I guess the Mirpur Wicket is not yet friendly for batsman.

Tushar did it again. Well done. This Sagir kid is making me curious. Hopefully he will continue his good form and not get lost like Shahin. Hope to see some runs from Nadif, Marshall, Faruque and gang in the second innings. Now its Enamul time. Show your magic!!!

The amount of time they spent on the crease is also very important. Almost a whole day, it might make the difference between a draw or loss.

I was looking at the scorecard and saw there were six different englishmen who had a catch in the match (3 had 2 catches). No LBWs or Bowled.

This tells me,
1. Tushar's decision to bat first was a good decision.
2. It was our batsmens' failure to control shot making instinct. All strokemakers.
3. English bowling is as rubbish as I thought but disciplined only one wide and one no-ball.
4. BD could have scored 300 easy and put England A in a peculiar position.

Congrates to Sagir, Tushar and Sharif.

We are in fact lucky that Pilot refused to play in this match.
Otherwise we would have missed Sagir and his valuable knock on 86.

If Sagir continues to play a leading role in such critical situations, I would seriously doubt Pilot's place even in the A team in the series against Sri Lanka-A, which Pilot wanted to play by the way. It's a difficult time for this veteran cricketer. The "Automatic Choice" is turning into an "Automatic Non-Choice".

well in test we need a keeper batsman. so I think shagir/mushfiq has to go long way to prove that they r better keeper than Pilot.
SO i don't see them getting chances in test so quickly...

We don't know- all depends on how they perform.
If pilot continues to make "Semi-Half-Quarter-Centuries" and the others continue to make significant contributions, then the next thing you hear.."Since Pilot retiring soon, we better give chance to the......".

TheWatcher

It seems most of the boys are out of their depth, but again most of them (including Mehrab Jr) probably never played pacers of Broad and Onions' standard before. This match goes to show how important it is to groom the players through the A-team.

Anyway, I hope the selectors won't prematurely axe any player and keep their faith in the current group, at least for the next match.

Once again, I don't get the hype about Pilot's keeping, he was getting sloppy before he was dropped from the national team.

Keep in mind that Mushfiq pretty much got a stress-free life in the national team. If Sagir continues to preform this way, Musfiq's innings will have to be much more consistent.

It's too early to jump to any conclusions here, but your ideas seem to be correct for the moment. Also, I think we should be reminded of Mushfiq's innings against Zimbabwe where he batted at #4, which was quite a bit under pressure. Not sure if Zimbabwe's ODI team can be compared to England's A team, but that sure was under pressure.

If Sagir shows good talent, and Mushfiq shows good talents too, the team can be lucky to have two young kids who have an ample amount of time to prove themselves, and make proper use of them. If Sagir continues to perform like this, he could potentially make the hidden treasure we've been looking for - a wicketkeeper batsman. But as I said, it's too early to say anything yet.

sadi

Sagir has a long way to go. But what I do like is it definately create some competition and Mushfiq will be on his toes. He will not think he is the automatic choice like our ex national wicket keeper. :)

England A team should be better than most coutry team and undoubtedly way better than Zimbabwe national team. Sagir was under a lot of pressure today. Playing in home ground was a major plus. However, any way you look at it, it was a pretty amazing inning.

I mean country. I should check for misspellings. This team is better than most country teams including their foreign players, because the A team is a much deeper team. All country teams have about 2 or 3 players better than the players in this team, but the other 20 players won't make the top 15 of this team.

Look how awful he looks in that Jersey, barely any meat in his body. These players need to eat more. Maybe some fruits and vegetables every now and then. I think thats one of our major problems. I doubt we can ever chase a total of 350+ like what New Zealand just did consecutively. I doubt too many has the power to hit the ball half-way into the stands. (maybe Masri).

This is something the coaching staff may need to really consider. Sure now we have quality training facilities and fitness instructors; but our players are still very small and skinny. How about a MEAL INSPECTOR?

The national team is actually relatively fit now, thanx to some hard work by the "new" trainer. Ofcourse, theyre no Dhoni's, but they have definitely improved from the days they couldnt even hit sixes. I do think youre right about the food they eat though. They might be getting stronger, but theyre still small. Genes maybe? People from the subcontinent (in general) do have slow metabolic rates...

On an apparently decent batting pitch, keeping them at a RR of 3 while taking 5 wicket isn't horrible either. I'd love us to peg them down and get em out for around 300. After the 1st innings debacle that would be an acceptable fightback IMHO.

The gulf in class between Mashrafee, Shahadat and our back up pacers is highlighted yet again. Dollar's far too young, so maybe he will develop. But overall, the absolute non-existence of big, strapping fast bowlers should be a major worry. The present bunch just wont do if we are to compete on an even keel in Test matches.

reminds me of sri lanka in the early nineties, when their A team would get beaten by us regularly. a decade later, they have malinga, zoysa, fernando, etc to back Vaas up. probably gives you an idea of how long we might have to wait :p

In realistic terms, we shouldn't dream of world-class pacers to be born every now and then. How many pacers did Pakistan get after Waqar and Wasim? Can they even be compared to the quality in Waqar and Wasim's bowling?

In the case of BD pacers, I don't think Mashrafee is even comparable to the best pacers in the world. But he sure is the best we ever had. So now that we have a sufficient hype about pacers with all the pacer hunt programs and what not (and not to forget Mashrafee being a cricket hero among us), better pacers will probably be born any time. All we can do for now is groom our existing ones, and keep our fingers crossed.

I'm sure we can make use of a couple of the 14/15 koti people we have?

My point- Bangali's are so far behind in health, looks, size, etc even if you compare them to the rest of South Asia. Every Bangali guy will have a gut after 30. WHY? RICE, RICE, and RICE. That's all we know. Little meat, but LOTS of RICE. and then the afternoon NAP. I wanna see who stays fit after that!

We need another 4 wickets within next 40 runs. Then bat, bat and bat for full day of day 3 and perhaps 1st session of day 4. The key is, whatever, ENG A scores in their first innings, we need to score at least equal to that in our second innings.

I agree the diet need to be changed. They should rather eat Tehari, Nehari with Porata and jagorer Halua. Plus the wicketkeepers, close fielders and genuine batsman should also eat lots of Halim, Bashi Mula and Raw Egg. Not only it will work on their health, as a by-product it will also work against opponent’s concentration.

If I were Rahim, I would be looking behind my shoulders. I think Mashud is regretting his decision of not playing for the BD-A team. At this point Shagir is showing impressive form both with the bat and gloves.

It appears that Enam has acquitted himself quite well, although a couple more wickets would have been nice.

Dolar Mahmud's figures reminds me of Rajib's early performances for the A team. Hopefully he makes a Rajibesque improvement in the next year and a half.

If we'd bundled them out earlier, we could have piled on some quick runs until the end of the first session tomorrow and then let Enam and co. have their way on the 4th day wicket.

We're just playing for a draw now, although I suspect even that's optimistic.

N.B: They've stuffed up Dolar's figures. It should read 3/81.

the score is 58 in 29 overs... i.e.. RR is actually 2.00. But TC is showing RR as 29/58=0.50 :confused:

Silly mistake!

For present situation Mehrab's batting is Okay, as long he is not being out.

Agreed. Still 14 in 34 overs looks little odd when his partner is 50+ and also he is a bd national ODI player whereelse Jahirul is not. (71/0</B> Over -34; Jahirul 54*, Mehrab 14*).

It's good to see the Bangladeshi;s fighting
the players definately have the talent it just pains me how they seem to go for rash shots or get out to the wrong balls etc

He doesnt need to play shots.. but man, Thats just weird. He is probably best suited for test cricket. I dont know how in world did the selectors think he was a good fit for ODI opener.. Should've given Tamim all the practice instead. In these days where scores are flying over 300,, Do you have any team in the world where you have an ODI batsman like him? Nevertheless, his patience is admirable.

I really like Mehrab. He did exactly what the team required from him. Folks, in a test match or 4 day game it equally important to kill the time. It gives the team the chance to make a draw when they had a huge first innings deficit.

Wonderful job by Jahurul and Mehrab.

These two innings will prevent any change in the opening slot in the next match. :)

February 24, 2007, 06:48 AM
Good days play.

Shame Jahirul got out. Mehrab, I know what this kids trying to do but he's still meant to rotate the strike! Gillespies double century came off leg glances and hardly anything expansive, if Gillespie can keep scoring at a fair rate..why not one of our opening batsman!?

Rabz
February 24, 2007, 08:04 AM
Good fightback by the A team..
looks like the match is heading for a draw... if nothing drastic happens tomorrow..
yeah...shame Jahirul got out on 87.. same thing happened with Sagir in the first innings... looks like the cricket jinx happened on them...
u know how they say 87 is an unlucky no.. cuz its 13 away from century...

The start of the 2nd innings justifies TI's comments that this is a batting pitch and having very less assisstance to the bowlers and BD batsmen went for rash shots not considering the merit and situation. It seems, he is right, because all of them were caught out except one run out.

good stuff so far. looks like mosharraf was sent as the nightwatchman, so he will probably fall early tomorrow. since we can't win this anymore, might as well try to bat out the whole day tomorrow. not impossible, considering we have nine more wickets, thanks to our openers.

Mehrab's too slow even for Test matches. Oh well, I guess one good quality he has is being able to stay in the middle for a long time. Tukur tukur kore khele, r run nay. He probably won't make many centuries...but I truly hope I'm wrong.

Before 2006 any English A team would have won the match with 2 session left on a four day game. That against our national team.

This only proves our age group boys can compete and hold grounds at home. This is the first step. Next would be adopting in a foreign environment. 3rd winning!!!

I am very glad with this performance!

What this has shown is our supposed new big guns - Marshal Ayub and Nadif Chowdhury - have some ways to go before they translate their talent into skills. Let's hope they don't do an Al Shahriar - who must go down as THE biggest waste of talent in our cricket history.

This is regular for BD. Not pathetic.

Pathetic wasnt Vaas's hattrick against us at the time.

Pathetic would be BD A getting out for 50 odd.

You are leaving 5 years back.

How many overs they have played today? 45 may be. If they can stay until 65th over then it may be a draw.

I doubt it, you can't leave more than 15 overs for the English to bat. Anything more than 15 overs they'll knock off the runs.

No bro.

We've come a long way.

That don't mean we're immune to playing a game with the level of skill we had five years back for one game.

BD is very unpredictable. I'd expect everyone to know that.

231/7 in 110 overs. BD played 46 overs today whcih means England would get a minimum of 44 overs to bat (if BD folds from here). Its a lead of 81 runs so far. So if we can stay out there for 25-30 more overs there's a good chance we can pull it off.

C'mon guys.

If we can get a lead of 100+ and leave them about 25-30 overs to bat - I say game on. If you notice, it's the English spinners who have been getting wickets in the 2nd essay.

Tushar must show his mettle today. He is set and needs to play right to the end. Sharif, Dolar and Enam- all can bat a bit and hang around. He needs to play around them. A lead of anything around 150 will be enough to draw the match. It will not be easy to chase 150 on a fourth day pitch in 30 over or so!

100 runs 25-30 overs? Way too risky. They have some big hitters. Plus, 100 can be scored before the ball gets rough enough for the spinners to be effective.

Lead of 89. 37 Overs min to be bowled today. With at least 1 over loss for change of sides, that means 90 odd in 35 over. The three days prior we had 88, 89 and 89 overs so I'm going with the minimum of 90 overs rule here.

Hey if the RR gets out of hand, we can always have our two SLAs bowl one feet outside leg stump and the pacers bowl 2 feet outside off-stump. There _are_ ways to kill the game :) I just hope we make it to tea with Tushar & Sharif still there.

Right, but the light belongs to the batsman and the umpires will allow more overs if there's chance for a result.

Every game is different from each other. Generalization is not accurate for all the game. This is BD A team. We have not played strong side for a very long time. Considering that against a strong England A team I think BD has put up a decent fight.This A team beat Zimbabwe very easily. BD A draw with England full strength A is good showing. It is gonna get only harder for England A from now on. Time will justify. Cheers!

Dollar, Sharif and Enamul they all can bat atleast they can chip away some more overs. BD Lead is 120+ now over left is about 30 over. if we can use up 10 more over and add 25 runs then England target will be 140+ in 20 overs. Good luck with that.


Its a draw!!:onethephone:
