BD A forced to follow
Sports Reporter

Bangladesh A were forced to follow-on the second day of their three-day match against Kenya Cricket Association (KCA) Eleven at the Aga Khan Sports ground in Nairobi yesterday.

The visitors were dismissed for 223 after the home team posted an imposing first innings total of 512.

The second string national side were 12 for one at the close, still needing another 277 runs on the final day to save the match.

Skipper Sanwar Hossain and Tushar Imran repaired the early damage after Bangladesh lost four wickets cheaply.

Opener Javed Omar scored only six in his comeback match. Mohammad Ashraful also scored a disappointing seven and Mazharul Haque celebrated his call up to the squad for the ICC Champions Trophy with a duck. Hannan scored 26.

But it was the fifth wicket stand between Sanwar and Tushar that pulled the tourists out of a hole.

Tushar scored 98 and Sanwar made 63. But once the pair was sent packing the wheels fell off the Bangladesh innings.

Earlier, the virtual full-strength Kenyan side added 70 runs to their overnight 452 for six before being all out in the morning session.

One-day specialist Ravindu Shah was the tormentor with a cracking 184.

For Bangladesh A right-arm paceman Anwar Hossain Monir captured four wickets while occasional leg-spinner Ashraful took three.

They will play two three-day day matches and three limited-overs games during the tour of Kenya.

I'd love to see if they can repeat their performance again in the next three innings. The one-dayers will also be something to closely look at. Bar a few players, this is our national team and even if we write off the bowling as our second string, it still doesn't explain the 512 scored by Kenya. :(

It's all about captency. If Javed Omar had been the captain, BD A would not let KCA pile up those runs. It's the moran Sanwar Hossain's stupid captency that led to this situation.

From the following report and especially the scorecard, it can be easily said that all the Kenyan bowlers did was that they had maintained a good line and length and the weakness of the Bangladeshi batsman against pace / seam bowling did all the damage.

Kenya force Bangladesh to follow on
Kenya Cricket Association XI yesterday forced the visiting Bangladesh 'A' to follow on in the second day's action of their three-day match at Nairobi's Aga Khan Club.

The tourists, five of whom – Javed Omar, Alok Kopali, Topash Kumar, Tushar Imran and Mazrahul Hoque – have been named in the Bangladeshi team for the ICC Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka next month, were bowled out 223 despite an impressive 98 by Toshan Imran.

Kenya piled up 512 runs in their first innings with a great knock of 184 from opener Ravindu Shah and half centuries from Maurice Odumbe (67), Thomas Odoyo (59) and Kennedy Otieno Obuya (55).

Bangladesh were all out for 223 in their first innings enforcing the follow on. When bad light ended yesterday's play, Bangladesh were 11 for one.

Kenya had resumed batting yesterday on 452 with Maurice Odumbe, Collins Obuya, Peter Ongondo and Martin Suji adding to the overnight total.

After losing the first four wickets cheaply, the visitors steadied and looked set to grind out a draw when Imran and Anwar Hossain , who put in 146 for the fifth wicket, settled down and frustrated the Kenyan attack.

However, spinner Collins Obuya started the tourists' collapse when he picked the prized wicket of Imran, catching the Bangladeshi off his own ball.

Zabir was totally useless with the ball.

Seems like BD only had 3 fulltime bowlers Anwar, Ash and Taposh.

They better play 5 bowlers against a team like Kenya. Or else, another half thousand coming up.
