Whose bright idea was it to send Pilot in to open? Since when is he an opening batsman? How the hell does one expect him to last against the new ball? If he was a pincher, thats one thing, but we have just sacrificed someone who would have been good for about 20-25 runs down the order!!

Nasif
September 18, 2003, 03:37 AM
I think its Dav's idea. Pilot was just a bolir patha.

Sham
September 18, 2003, 03:43 AM
Dav really did miss a trick in this ODI series. He should have carried on with the Test openers, Hannan and Golla. Instead he sent Golla home and now we have tried Bashar, Ashraful, Hannan and now Pilot, and we aren't any closer to the answer! Actually, this is making things worse!

Sham
September 18, 2003, 03:59 AM
Its nice to be able to just bat without having to worry about the required runrate! I just want to see us batting out the 50 overs.

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 04:13 AM
just checked in, good that we won the toss. but 24/1 after 10 - did we already lose the match???

not only did whatmore miss a trick, so did selectors. they announced the 3 changes to the test side even BEFORE the team arrived in Pak. What mismanagement and "ultra-smart" decision making. Hopefully no one will still post "we need to experiment until we find an opening pair that works". That's bull. We HAD an opening pair. We HAVE opening batsmen, but they are all at HOME.

Sham
September 18, 2003, 04:20 AM
Bad time to lose a wicket! BD 47 for 2 after 13.5 overs.

Abdul Razzaq to Hannan Sarkar, OUT: Gone! good come back delivery
by Razzaq, pitches just outside off, came in sharply, Sarkar tries
to play on the backfoot, misses and ball hit the pads, in front of
off stump, huge appeal for lbw, Tiffin finger goes up

May be u guys watching live on Tv know better but by Cricinfo commentary, it seems that hannan was hit on pads in front of off stump which means it's OUT. Bowl pitched outside off stump and swung in which means he is OUT. Can't see anything wrong with the decision but pple watching live would know better.

Sham
September 18, 2003, 05:09 AM
and Hannan was unlucky!

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 05:10 AM
not watching on tv so have no idea about the lbw - commentary sounds ok. we need to play out sami's second spell but without slowing to a crawl - 230/240 is going to be very hard unless they start hitting people like junaid zia out of the ground.

Sham
September 18, 2003, 05:10 AM
Watching Bashar bat in and ODI is too frustrating for words! Why doesn't he take any singles for God's sake? Since he is not going to score too many boundaries, what is the damn point of blocking everything. A little nudge here and there can easilly get him some runs. He scores at a quicker rate in Test Matches!! Pathetic.

Sham
September 18, 2003, 05:27 AM
A team should double their 30 over score by the 50th over if they have wickets in hand. We have 8 wickets in hand. If we manage to double our 30 over score, we will set Pakistan 217, which won't really be enough.

Sham
September 18, 2003, 05:36 AM
Run out, trying to take the third run. The fielder hit the stumps direct from the outfield. Bangladesh 117 for 3.

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 05:40 AM
that must have been some throw! bashar should have gone on to past 50. well, hopefully they will pick up the run rate here, but because of that rule of thumb I was hoping they would have got to 120 byt 30 overs. they have scored 24-39-45 in the first 10-20-30 overs. I know they are trying to hang on to wickets, but that won't be good enough unless they go on the attack - 7 wickets left, they need to do that.

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 05:43 AM
:(

damn another lbw. what is going on - we needed rajin to stay!!

Sham
September 18, 2003, 05:44 AM
LBW to Hafeez. How often do we see this with our batsmen? Both set batsmen getting out within a few deliveries. After all that getting set, just when we needed desperately to pick up the runrate, we now have two new batsmen at the crease. Anyway, Rajin deserved a 50, it wasn't to be I guess.

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 05:47 AM
so what is the point of getting set? just hit some bondaries and get out, move along. where is sujon?

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 06:02 AM
Kapali out. So we may not even last 50 overs, let alone score a competitve total. And they have done nothing to move the run rate. In fact the last 10 overs we scored only 38. I don't think they will even cross 200. So much for winning the toss - this team needs to return to training camp to figure out how to play. Watching them take 3-4 singles for another 10 overs is too painful, later. ;)

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 07:03 AM
guys at the end did well to play catch up. sujon's brief innings for once fit the script perfectly. if only bashar/rajin had pressed the pedal a tad, 240+ would have been very competitive. let's hope for the best!

Mahmood
September 18, 2003, 07:23 AM
I liked the game today so far. Finally looked like, the BD batsmen understood how to play ODI.

Throughout the whole innings, I never felt worried, great game plan and execution. 250 would have been perfect, but 222 will just have to do.

Only 2 things I didnt like, Pilot to open and Masri coming so late. When you have 5 wickets in hand and 5 overs to go, why save Masri!!! Could have reached the 250.

Now lets see how good has BD bowling really improved. The batsmen did their job and gave the bowlers a defendable score. Pakistan will be eager to take advantage of the 15 over fielding restriction, hit early and make the job easy for the later batting. BD needs to take 2 early wickets to gain control.

I am hoping for a super Masri today.

Mahmood
September 18, 2003, 07:35 AM

Mahmood

Actually, he was necessary to get that rr down to manageable level. Tapash needs 1 or 2 wickets to put us in command. Field restrictions are off so 2 overs or so of spin could be tried. Huh?

I wanna see pak RRR go above 5 by 30th over and then over 6 at the 40th, and lose another 4 wicket by then.

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 09:17 AM
sujon's bowling rotation seems to follow the same pattern - he is not going to bowl mashrafee the full 10 overs, and he brings spin on a little late. instead of bowling mushfiq 8 overs at a stretch, he should have brought on rafique by the 20th over. at least the PK run rate is staying down, but that doesn't mean anything as they can change that rate in a couple of overs. BD will have to work very hard to win this game need good rotation and a wicket here and there. sujon should keep the bowlers rotating to keep the batsmen guessing.

bhobishshot
September 18, 2003, 09:18 AM
Sujon must have telepathic link with oracle.:)

not quite. sujon took himself out when he was doing very well. he leaves mushfiq on who is tired by now.

I don't get the game plan with the 7 bowlers we have (did someone say 7?), some reporter should interview him on this subject.

Mahmood
September 18, 2003, 09:23 AM
Now its getting bad for us. We need 3 wickets soon (before they cross 150), if we want to stay alive in this match.

rafiq
September 18, 2003, 11:14 AM
BD played extremely well. But they choked in the last couple of overs - misfielding, wides, etc. Some more early runs would have been the difference. The bowlers did extremely well to keep it this close.

Dav would have been even more magical had he had the common sense of keeping a second opener, this opening issue was a pathetic joke.

If we win the toss in the 5th game, hopefully the boys will now know what to do.

Er, did Sami make such a difference? And thank God for Junaid Zia and his Dad, although he will likely be replaced by the more compelling Shoiab in the last match ;)

Sham
September 18, 2003, 11:16 AM
Our ODI batting just has to improve. Our batsmen still don't seem to know how exactly to go about building an ODI innings. When a veteran like Sumon doesn't know to take singles, why blame anyone else. Its just the basics that we have to get right, like keeping the scoreboard ticking. I mean, how can we play out a maiden over in the 32nd over off someone like Malik? Could they really not nudge three singles off that over? I think Whatmore really has to address the singles issue.

Also, the reason Pakistan won the 3rd Test and today's ODI is because one of the top order saw it through. We still don't have someone who can finish a job. No one who can see an innings through. It can be different people at different times, but someone will have to put his hand up in each game and see the innings through!

48.6 Mashrafe Mortaza to Abdul Razzaq, two runs, fulltoss, driven to

back for the 2nd

49.1 Tapash Baisya to Yousuf Youhana, two runs, very high fulltoss,
driven to point, again misfileded by Rajin, 2 runs taken
49.2 Tapash Baisya to Yousuf Youhana, two runs, on the off stump, driven
to deep mid off, good running again

At least 3 misfields in 5 balls made the difference. Rajin did it twice in 2 balls.

The pressure got to our team in the end, but I think we were 15 runs below par to begin with. The bowlers should tremendous fight, as they usually do, only if our batsmen could give them a defendable target for once!

Sham

Every match in this series, we have closed the gap between the two teams. Going by that logic, we ought to win the next game. We can always hope, but for the first time ever, I am starting to feel that we are not too far away from competing with the top sides on a regular basis.

This guy is gonna be the mainstay of our batting! We need that more than we need a champion bowler right now.

The last thing I need in my team is shoaib and his big mouth.

Let's settle this once and for all. We'll give away our most respectable player, sujon and all you have to do is give us Youhana.

congratulations to tushar, 33 isnt that many but in the circumstances it was excellent. I hope he finds a home at no.6. We are in desperate need of another opener. Bidyut would be handy to have in the squad. If the pick Habibul to do it again we have a problem at 4. Sanwar or Ash being the only unconvincing options.

What's wrong with Kapali or Rajin?

Rajin is already doing way better than we expected - just don't forget that it was Rajin's first tour for Bangladesh.

Kapali too, is not the most consistent batsman, it is the other batsman like Habibul Bashar and Mohammad Ashraful whose inconsistent performance makes Alok Kapali the most consistent performer for Bangladesh.

Kapali is quite a reliable performer. I don't think it does him justice to suggest that the only reason that we consider him consistent is because the others in the team are so inconsistent. I think Kapali has given me more to cheer about in the last year than any other player. Its only recently that Bashar, Rajin and Rafiq have been getting into the act.

Kapali is VERY consistent, his place in the team is assured for a very long time.

Not in Test.

In test, so far Alok played 12 matches, scored 460 runs in 24 innings with an average of 20. His highest ever score is 48. That is not a dependable test batsman figure. Rokon, Hannan, Golla, Bashar, Rajon all got better performence than him in tests.

As for ODI, Alok kapali is undoubltedly the best BD batsman along with Rajin. He has 639 runs in 27 innings of 28 matches he played, with highest 89 not out! his average of 25 is higher than all except Rajin and Anwar (who should play ODI regularly, I never understood why we dropped him from ODI).
