YUP,BD have a Gud chance of Qualifying for the Semi if they win there remaining 3 matches and the Tom match is going to be a crucial one as It will knock England out of the WC completely if BD wins.

I think Shariar Nafee and Rajib should play against England. Also, does anyone know how the english batsman play against the spinners? Wishing the BD team good luck for the upcoming games and we will be going to semi-final, inshallah.

April 10, 2007, 01:20 PM
Forget about our bowling, our batsmen has to post 330+ runs against England, that should be their target going into the match. Look how South Africa scored only 36 some runs in first 10 overs and then ended up with 356, since our batting is not as great as South Africa we should at least post around 330+.

About the England game, Ash gave an interview to BBC Urdu service and his comments are on a BBC website report. The link is given below. Do you guys know if he gave the comments in Urdu? I certainly hope not. That would be totally inappropriate. I know I'm letting my emotions take over with this reaction, but what the hell is he doing talking to BBC Urdu service. If anything, he should talk to the BBC Bangla service!

Yeah you're right. Bengalis get duped by Pakis and their sweet words and exploitation of "Muslim brotherhood" talk (which is often false), Ash should stick to Bengali.

I think BD can win, but my greatest worry is this. After they achieve a big victory, expectations go up and they fall under the strain, and then expectations drop. When expectations fall then they feel more free to play their natural game and then win.

Either they will play poorly as they did with Sri Lanka after their India victory, or hopefully their victory against SA will add to their mental confidence, strength and pressure. Ability wise they can definitely beat England.

The Tigers have delayed naming the squad for tomorrows match.

“Normally we have a policy of naming the team at least a day before but we just couldn’t do that today. We have told all the players to prepare to play and we are not in a position to announce a 12 even. It’s just a matter of understanding a little bit more about the conditions and the best combination given the opposition,” said Whatmore.

Skipper Bashar however hinted that there was a possibility of vice captain and opener Shahriar Nafees Ahmed, scorer of 1033 runs in 28 matches last year, returning to the fold.

“He is in our thoughts. But I don’t think we will be making too many changes,” said Bashar who added that the spirit in the side was befitting of going into such an important fixture.

“I think we took a bit of pressure on us in the first two Super Eight games. But the win against South Africa has released that pressure and the players are all charged up and prepared to enjoy the competition. Our goal is to keep doing the things we did right.”



so shahriar is coming back.. hope he does well 2moro..

Mushfiq or Bashar has to come first down. Mashrafee needs to become economical and take early wkts, he is not the same as he was against India.

England has Bell, KP, Colly, Nixon and Bopara with the bat as our danger man, with the bowl, it will be Freddie and Colly.

The joy of cricket has moved south and east on the subcontinent

South Asian shuffle

Osman Samiuddin

April 10, 2007



The game has given them much, and the players from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh know that and are ready to give something back © AFP

The joy of cricket, the vitality of it, in the subcontinent has migrated southwards and eastwards. Whether it is a permanent shift or just temporary asylum can only be guessed but, as Karachi and Mumbai stand jaded, Colombo and Dhaka are set to sparkle.

How has this become the case? After all, the four teams share many traits. All have - or had until recently - foreign coaches; two have succeeded, two have failed and no new light is shed on an old debate.

And it isn't as if Sri Lanka Cricket and the Bangladesh Cricket Board are models of corporate and administrative virtue. No cricket board is perfect and those in the subcontinent, in particular, are less perfect than others.

Is it to do with the personnel for, as we are tiresomely reminded, talent fairly gushes out of every subcontinent galli and village? Perhaps age, and the blend of old with new, has a little to do with it, but it's not entirely that. Pakistan and Bangladesh had 12 players under 30 in their squads and three over, India 11 under and four over. Sri Lanka have a whopping six over 30. For experience in terms of matches, Sri Lanka are sandwiched between India and Pakistan, all well ahead of Bangladesh.

Instead, there is a feel about both teams, a sense captured equally through TV sets thousands of miles away and in stadiums where they've played. Suresh Menon and Rahul Bhattacharya have articulated in greater detail this vibrancy but how enamoured their players are with the game and only the game is clear. They are devoted to it, not in a dutiful sort of way but more beholden by it: the game has given them much, they know, and they have to give back to it, they also know.

In odd ways it reveals itself. In the dance of the elderly, for example: the oldest players in a line-up can often be the weakest links but, when needed, they can also be the strongest. Muttiah Muralitharan, Sanath Jayasuriya and Mohammad Rafique have not only scored and stopped runs and taken wickets when necessary, they have done it with the zest of men half their age and in their first internationals. The contrast with the sullenness emanating from Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf is stark.
Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have not only fielded better, they have enjoyed doing so much more. Jonty Rhodes says that fielding should be fun and watching these two, you see the wisdom of simple words

Most vividly it can be seen in the field. Efforts in batting and bowling are often slave to situation and circumstance; pitch and weather conditions, chasing a big total, defending a small one, the form of key players. Fielding largely operates outside these confines and so is often a more accurate indicator of a side's mood and health.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have not only fielded better, they have enjoyed doing so much more. Jonty Rhodes says that fielding should be fun and, watching these two, you see the wisdom of simple words. Conversely, Pakistan and India give the impression that fielding is as much fun as the ICC.

It's strange, in fact, how India and Pakistan resemble each other so. On the field, there has been a spooky sameness; results and performances in South Africa were nearly identical, the Champions Trophy and World Cup, both failures. Both batting line-ups struggle in alien conditions, as fielders both are poor and both leaders increasingly embattled and embittered. Both now rebuild.

Off it, they are cricket's Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. One, pure monied trash, influential for no other reason than having too much of it, the other straight-up trailer trash, cricket's true basket case. They are tabloid fodder, stumbling from one front page to another: religion, player factionalism, spats, coaching intrigues, politicking, doping and even possible murder. How much of the news that you have read about these two sides recently has been about their cricket?


Bangladesh seniors like Mohammad Rafique play as if in their first international, with much enthusiasm © AFP

In this world, how much could they have really enjoyed playing cricket when they know that failure, among other things, means hysterical reactions from fans and contract suspensions? Their love of the game shouldn't be questioned but they walk the field burdened, their cricket joyless. Bangladesh and Sri Lanka either have no burdens or they have managed to put them aside. They are floating in a rare time, in the midst of substantial development and progress and it shows.

It is inaccurate and hasty to talk of new standard-bearers. Sri Lanka were world champions ten years ago and have long been a top side. This is only Bangladesh's first creditable performance in a multi-nation event. Those are lofty questions not answered on the basis of even the biggest tournament of all. But clearly, on the subcontinent, these are the best of times and the worst of times

Forget about our bowling, our batsmen has to post 330+ runs against England, that should be their target going into the match. Look how South Africa scored only 36 some runs in first 10 overs and then ended up with 356, since our batting is not as great as South Africa we should at least post around 330+.
lol, nice logic.

I see some people in some of the Universities bench pressing 300+. Since you went to school also I would like you to bench press 250+. ;)

Why not, if during the initial selection process I also got qualified to be in the same group level as those bench pressing 300+, I should be able to do it, otherwise I should not be in the same bracket like those uni guys. If I am in the same group and unable to bench press 250+, there will be questions as to how did I get into that group? was it based on my ability or some other crooked way??

If we bat first, something around 270 will be good enough to defend. England always choke under pressure and our spinners will get them. However, we need put the runs on the board first.

So since they showed beat SA and everyone is talking about Bangladesh for the past couple of days, tomorrow they will be commentating how they still have to get the maturity and mentality and consistency to come out with a game plan and execute it both physically and mentally on the field. How they still have to understand the mental game of cricket and the tricks of good bowling and batting.

England played well against Australian bowling and also their match against SL can be considered an even match. So to me, everybody is under estimating their strength and form. They are actually a better composite team with bat and ball compared to SA.

It's not just talking about them..it's about English batsmen and their seamers who are doing great job so far bowling. Previous matches BD struggled a lot against England.
2000 BD played ok scoring 232 for 8 where as END got that run loosing only 2 wkts ion 43 overs.
2003 BD played three times against END where BD scored 143, 134, 182 respectively. EN won by 3 wkts in 25.3 overs(146), 3 wkts(137) in 27+ overs, and by 7 wkts (scoring 183 in 39 overs).
2005 BD also played England three times in England:
BD scored 190(45.2 overs) and England winning by 10 wkts scoring 192.
ENG scored 391/4 and BD scored 223(45.2 overs) thus loosing by 168 runs.
BD scored 208/7 and END scored 209/5(38.5 overs) winning by 5 wkts.

Now you tell me what we can do this time? Clearly ENG knows our strength and they know whom to target.

The Bangladesh batsmen had a unique training session on Monday morning. They will face England at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Wednesday.
The Asians were trying their hand at six-hitting as coach Dav Whatmore used the last half of the early morning session at the Windward Cricket Club to flex some muscle.

Ha ha Nice Said.

After watching the WI’s performance against SA…BD has a lot of reason for delighting. We beat SA by 67 runs and SA beat WI by 67 runs…so I think our Bowling Attack is very good and this will help us to Beat England in today’s match. England looks vulnerable and they are not playing as a Team…they didn’t beat any Test Status Country yet…they just beaten Kenya, Canada and Ireland. IF BD plays their normal and natural game…I don’t find any reason why we can’t beat the England. In my sense, England is now the weakest team who has Test Status. But I am very much concerned about our Captain Habibul…in the last match he batted in the very important position and made 5 runs in 16 ball…Ashraful’s and Mash’s marvelous batting hide that poor performance…but if Bashar did his regular job today…our Semifinal mission will be hampered for sure. We can’t expect blasting innings everyday from Ash and Mash. Bashar should take his responsibility….and about JO…the least I can say is better…he is totally boring and useless member in the team….I think the sooner he will get out will be the better for us.

kaisermatin
April 10, 2007, 08:40 PM
I wish Mashrafi/Rasel bowls like Malinga (line and length) and get 4 wickets in 4 balls (they almost caught SA). And the spinners get their job done like as they did to India and SA. Sensible batting will again put us among the ranks. Tamim and JO each needs to make a quick fire 50. Everyone (aftab, saquib, mushfiq, ashraful, rafique, mashrafi) needs to contribute to a big score. Fielding as usual would be great. Everyone already praised fielding.

About the pitch, from UK Times (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/cricket/article1637523.ece) -


Bangladesh are likely to find conditions here different from the slow, low pitch that allowed them to stifle South Africa in Guyana on Saturday. Bell broke into a smile at the thought of the England pace attack bowling to young batsmen raised to play off the front foot.

The surface is cracked, forming self-contained areas the size of big dinner plates, but Whatmore, the Bangladesh coach, does not expect them to open and create targets for his spin bowlers, even towards the end of a baking day. “There is grass underneath to hold it together,” he said.

"We can't just sit back and say: 'That's it, we have answered our critics and that's the end of the story'," Whatmore said. "Far from it. We have still got a long way to go yet and the reality is that Bangladesh are still the No. 9 side in the world and, as sometimes happens, we put in a shocking performance and we get beaten heavily.

"When that happens, it leads to more comments [from the critics]. We know that within ourselves we have improved and that we are capable of causing upset wins and we would like that to continue."

"The win against South Africa gave us a lift but we are not getting carried away," Whatmore said. "Everyone who saw the game in Guyana knows that conditions there were very different to the ones we encountered in Antigua."

This is going to be a fantastic match - England are wounded and will be desperate, while Bangladesh are riding on a wave of confidence. I really do think that BD can beat the Pommies - KP will do a lot of damage but if he scores a ton and nobody else scores much of anything then what's the point? I think your attack should trouble some of the out of form England batsmen like Vaughan (the only non-playing captain in this WC), Strauss and Flintoff. The dangers will be KP, Bell and Collywobble.

For BD, the big question mark is over the batting. If Ashraful and Ahmed can string together two good wins in a row then BD will have a decent chance.

Good luck to Bangladesh, I'll be cheering for you.

One thing that's worrying me the most is the pitch condition of Kensington Oval. Appearantly it's hard and bouncy and should help England's fast bowlers. Also KP plays spin very well and our spinners depend a lot on low, slow pitches. So I'm unsure how useful they will be.

If we bat first, something around 270 will be good enough to defend. England always choke under pressure and our spinners will get them. However, we need put the runs on the board first.

Usually most of the teams choke under pressure (Even Australia also /.:D)

I think IF BD has to win todays match ,then they will definately need to bat first b'coz chasing a total of more than 230 will not be easy for England

April 11, 2007, 05:32 AM
It's not just talking about them..it's about English batsmen and their seamers who are doing great job so far bowling. Previous matches BD struggled a lot against England.
2000 BD played ok scoring 232 for 8 where as END got that run loosing only 2 wkts ion 43 overs.
2003 BD played three times against END where BD scored 143, 134, 182 respectively. EN won by 3 wkts in 25.3 overs(146), 3 wkts(137) in 27+ overs, and by 7 wkts (scoring 183 in 39 overs).
2005 BD also played England three times in England:
BD scored 190(45.2 overs) and England winning by 10 wkts scoring 192.
ENG scored 391/4 and BD scored 223(45.2 overs) thus loosing by 168 runs.
BD scored 208/7 and END scored 209/5(38.5 overs) winning by 5 wkts.

Now you tell me what we can do this time? Clearly ENG knows our strength and they know whom to target.

The most important i reckon are the 3 from 2005... but there were several factors in that series... 1stly, we were demoralised by the test series.... 2ndly it was England's home series and 3rdly England were pumped up for the Ashes

fwullah
April 11, 2007, 05:48 AM
How about "expecting" to play poorly vs. ENG like we did against SL after the India match but "hope" to beat them - anyone?

My expectation is like this because we all know how inconsistent team we are and my hope is as above because in the last match, only Ashraful scored a big 80, and no one else could really stand against South Africa (no other 50 in that match).

Of course, my expectation in that matter is that nobody will score a 50 today because that's the worst that our batsman can do; and the new wicket of Barbados might help fast bowlers, not our 3 left arm spinners.

What's the news on Mashrafee? Is he fit?

Experimenting is one thing and fielding the best possible team is another. i have gone for the latter.
Mushfiq is a complete batsman. Moreover he is a pretty cool customer.
I just want to use reza's bowling and hard hitting abilities.
Experimenting would seem more appropriate for SN who is finding it very hard to score. nevertheless he is my 2nd option
Rajin 3rd, bcoz he can bowl and is good in fielding like any body

We have still got a long way to go yet and the reality is that Bangladesh are still the No. 9 side in the world and, as sometimes happens, we put in a shocking performance and we get beaten heavily.
"When that happens, it leads to more comments [from the critics]. We know that within ourselves we have improved and that we are capable of causing upset wins and we would like that to continue."

Good toss to loose
What you mean good toss to loose...now i am confused.
Few said it will difficult to bat in the morning how it wll good for us when our openners are inconsistent and hardly can make contact to good deliveries. And now Golla is not playing either who could have stayed in the crease in beginning overs.

The England batsman Ian Bell, whose team needs to win its three remaining matches to stay in contention, said Bangladesh would not be under-estimated. "Bangladesh are a fantastic side and we are not treating them as minnows," Bell said. "We know they have talented young cricketers and they have proved that they can play against some of the best sides in the world."

The most Risky decision:

Axing Javed Omar. History says, he is always good against England, especially in ODI. Anyway, I pray that SN justifies his inclusion, and help BD win.

I do not think we will cross 200 today, this pitch is full of bounce and swing, our batsmen cannot play those balls, they will definitely give catches all around.

Had we fielded first and Eng scored +300, would have been an extremely difficult for us to chase and score that much therefore it's a good toss to loose.

Allrounder,

And I think you really, really need to grow a backbone.

The Tigers have arrived. They have beaten not one, but *two* teams that thought they had a shot at the World Cup.

We need to score 220+ to create any kind of pressure at all.
We nned to score 240+ to give our bolwers something to fight to.
We need to score 260+ to have any kind of realistic hope of winning the game
We need to score 280+ to have a clear cut advantge over ENG
We need to score 300+ to pretty much seal the game.

Any score below 200, we will loose pretty badly.
