View Full Version : BD-PAK 5th ODI

September 21, 2003, 03:27 AM
Pakistan won the toss.

There goes our 50% chance.

September 21, 2003, 03:29 AM
Naah...I just woke at 4 in the morning to see BD bat. :(

September 21, 2003, 03:34 AM
We are fielding the same XI as the last match. Good idea in my opinion. The Pakis have brought in Hameed for Nazir and Shabbir in place of our favourite Junaid Zia.

September 21, 2003, 03:35 AM
Chasing and winning........... agrrrrrrrrrrr:(

September 21, 2003, 03:36 AM
But how cool would it be if we could do it?

September 21, 2003, 03:38 AM
how come there is no scorecard in cricinfo.com or they are not showing the game in the channels???:-/

September 21, 2003, 03:40 AM
It hasn't started yet. Starts at 8:45 GMT, which is 5 minutes from now.

September 21, 2003, 03:42 AM
i woke 3 in the morning...trying to catch BTV live on web....but no success:(

September 21, 2003, 05:18 AM
Grrrr., :mad: I did not go to the Advising today to see Pakistan go to 92 without loss. The batsman must pay for all the poor decisions (by coach - team management), poor bowling and poor fielding.

September 21, 2003, 05:42 AM
What happened with the first wicket
Cricinfo says stumped
Cricketnext says bowled

September 21, 2003, 05:44 AM
it is stumped

September 21, 2003, 05:51 AM
this doesn't look like a great start to our Sunday. Pak on taget for 292-300. yikes!

September 21, 2003, 05:53 AM
who took the wicket - rafique or mahmud?

September 21, 2003, 05:54 AM

September 21, 2003, 06:01 AM
another stumping, this time off saleh. thankfully yasir didn't help himself to another century. let's hope we can stem the runs a bit

September 21, 2003, 06:08 AM
At least Dave Whatmore is not experimenting unlike Mohsin Kamal, the Mr. If I had more 12 months ...., when we are playing a match that we should win (i.e., against Canada - Tapash Baisya came in first change) - in the first match of a WORLD CUP.

Youhanna Out. Mashrafee is the bowler at the 34/35th over. At least we have a morale victory there in not giving Youhanna his 5000th run by our bowlers.

September 21, 2003, 06:10 AM
Youhana gone.....52 from 32
lbw b: Mashrafe

September 21, 2003, 06:13 AM
Fastest 50s and 100s (http://www-aus.cricket.org/link_to_database/STATS/ODIS/BATTING/ODI_BAT_FASTEST_100S.html)

September 21, 2003, 06:18 AM
Pakistan is now 188/3 of 36 overs.

If bd get inzi and Younis early then have a great chance 2 win.

September 21, 2003, 06:23 AM
Hey HAbibul its a good collection of 50's and 100's i copy this in my hd for ever.Thxz for this kind of statistis.

September 21, 2003, 06:26 AM
Mashrafee gets younis. another lbw.

September 21, 2003, 06:29 AM
realistically though, our batting is going to have a real tough time chasing 250+ (they are still on target to get closer to 300). but one can always hope! mahmud needs to bring himself on and get a couple of wickets so i can stay abreast in fantasy league!

September 21, 2003, 06:31 AM
Chasing 225 is tuff enough. 250 ? We need PAK collapse in a big way.

September 21, 2003, 06:36 AM
Sujon has rotated bowlers well after Pak started running away with it. Hopefully he is smart over the last 10.

September 21, 2003, 06:40 AM
mashrafee and rafique get smacked again. for anyone watching, is our bowling this bad today or is the wicket just not helping (the bowlers)?

September 21, 2003, 06:55 AM
looks like they will get the 290 after all. I was hoping for an over or two from alok/rajin to see if the change could produce, but didn't happen.

September 21, 2003, 07:21 AM
Man, that was a clinically efficient innings from our Pak brothers. Bangladesh team should learn something from the way they ran the innings from start to finish, finally taking the run rate over 6. Pak was due for a game like this.

Chat room fans are especially mad at Sujon today, but I didn't see anything drastically wrong with his rotation. He did some of the same things he has done in previous games (like bringing himself on at the end and again he took a wicket), but today he did a better job with rotation eg masri's second spell was 23-2. We had hope at 205 after 40, and giving up 97 runs in the last 10 is outrageous. But any of our bowlers would have been hit in those last 10.

Let's hope BD batsmen can at least cross 250 and take something out of this game.

September 21, 2003, 07:29 AM
I expected worse. Actually the pakistanis were kind. The way Youhana was playing, think if he stayed put. 360+??

September 21, 2003, 08:49 AM
Didn't see the game, but if Inzi can get you out, how lazy are you then ? Sounds like some of the batsmen are just duumb mutts.

Just dissapointed seeing a very good pship be terminated like this.

September 21, 2003, 09:16 AM
Hi people. Is there any place on the web where we can watch the match? Thx.

September 21, 2003, 09:29 AM
My pleasure. But anyways welcome to banglacricket.com.

September 21, 2003, 09:33 AM
Thanks. I've been coming here and reading posts throughout the Pakistan series and just decided to join the last day :-/
BD's been quite unlucky. Especially the 3rd test and the 4th odi.

September 21, 2003, 09:54 AM
Hannan gone after 50. A big round of applause for that tiger.

bd 203/2 in 43 overs.Good game .

September 21, 2003, 10:49 AM
Always had faith in Kapali. Quiet but the SWAT team man for BD

September 21, 2003, 10:58 AM
Couldn't they play like this earlier? They have 8 wickets, they could have started taking risks way earlier. I think they just wanted their 50's....

September 21, 2003, 11:00 AM
bangladesh r now 221/2 in 46 overs.Great performence.

Well done bd players.:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Great batting by these Syhlettis who set a new 3rd wicket partership...congrats

September 21, 2003, 11:12 AM
There goes Tushar..... What a climax!LOL

September 21, 2003, 11:12 AM

September 21, 2003, 11:25 AM
There goes our captain.

September 21, 2003, 11:26 AM
If BD had this total in the last match, we would have won..... :(

September 21, 2003, 11:30 AM
All right guys, it's all over.
Bangladesh have improved a lot and they have out up a good fight and good luck against the POMS. Hope u guys win at least one match and i seriously believe u guys can do it if u can find at least 1 or 2 good bowlers who are capable of bowling a team out twice.
Pakistan on the other hand groomed their youngsters and the BEST news for Pakistan is emergence of Yasir Hameed who have played brilliantly and Umar Gul is also find of the tour.

Good luck for future and see u guys when u playe England.

September 21, 2003, 11:40 AM
Match is over and I'm not feeling bad. We fought till the end, we should hail the heros of this match, hannan, rajin and kapali. Very good work. 300 is always hard to achieve. We lost this game when we lost the toss. This was a very good show, somthing which was really due for BD fans. Hope they'll bring more like this with win. Bravo Tigers.


September 21, 2003, 11:46 AM
Like someone on the newsgroup once said ..

We'll be back. Better.

September 21, 2003, 12:02 PM
3 guys made 50's too...that sure is a step in the right direction. In fact, hanan, kapali and rajin have all performed consistently in this series. These 3 guys have a bright future ahead of them.

September 21, 2003, 01:39 PM
This was a good batting track and the Pakistanis were given a hand by Mushfiq opening. He is useful as a first change bowler but opening the attack is mostly reserved for someone like Masri. Pakistanis did not open with Shabbir AHmed and MOhamad Hafeez, did they ?

IN any case, Alok, Kapali and Hannan made a big difference for us in the series, they made us competitive in the ODIs and Sumoon is our undisputed Test leader along with Rafique. Sujon was simply lucky but how far can e go ? England will eat him alive.
