Dont you think that pointing the Indian national flag to something else is a bit too sarcastic? Hope you will update the link.

As for the Test match I dont see the India can run down BD that easily, it will be a tough contest and hope the best team wins. Good luck

One Test win would satisfy me rather than 10 ODI win this year and that is the 1st Test tomorrow against India. Thanks for the good wish!...sorry, I can't do the same due to technicallity!! Though, India is a much better Test side.:D

Enamul relishing challenge
****** Staff
17 May, 2007
Apart from the mighty Indian team, Bangladesh face the hot and humid conditions in Chittagong, attack of the seasonal flu and a 13-month long gap between playing two Tests as the first Test begins on Friday.

Dubbed only as Test player, Enamul Haque is now relishing his return to international cricket after more than one year.

“I feel like I am going to make my international debut,” was the smiling response of the left-arm spinner on the eve of the first Test.

The 20-year old, who hails from Sylhet, has played ten Tests with 32 scalps but he has yet to bowl against the much-vaunted Indian batting line-up.

“I’m excited and honestly speaking, a little nervous as for the first time in my career I am going to face players like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and of course Rahul Dravid, all great players against slow bowling. But I am also looking forward to take the challenge,” said delighted Enamul.

Enamul's bowling is considered effective in the longer-version because of his variation in flight but he has some other weapons to outwit batsmen.

“I am trying to develop a delivery for a long time which will be difficult for the left-handed batsman. I used it during Bangladesh A team's recent tour in Sri Lanka but I’m not sure whether I will use it during this series because I am still trying to make it natural in my bowling,” he disclosed.

He was also confident on his arm-ball, as he believes that it is completely different from the other left-arm spinners.

“I can still remember the dismissal of Michael Clarke in my last Test match at Fatullah last year. The batsman expected a straight armer but it took a little bit of turn which is my speciality and I tried hard for last one year to perfect it,” said Enamul, who keeps tracks of his bowling on a laptop.

Enamul was however quite aware of the tough task ahead as he has to lend perfect support to his aging but effective left-arm spin partner Mohammad Rafique.

“There is an advantage for me as I have played a number of four-day matches over the last one year which is not the case for many in the side. But it would be difficult to bowl in this kind of wicket for first two days. I definitely want my team to win the toss and decide to bat first in this kind of surface,” he said.

During his absence for the last one year Bangladesh team changed a lot following their one-day success and Enamul admitted that he found a new team from he had left after playing the first Test against Australia in April last year.

“It’s a different team because everybody is confident. I know it will be a difficult task to do something in the Test series against India but I got the impression from the team that they have the self-confidence,” he added.

If IND wins and bat, our bowlers won't be effective. Mash is injury prune, Shahadat will try his best but the heat is immense not sure how they will be effective or can bowl continuously. With world class batting line up there is not much to expect from our SLAs. If Gillepsie can score 200 runs imagine what Sachin,dada,Rahul,Laxman, Zafar will score each. Not sure why they are making a dead pitch.

“I’m excited and honestly speaking, a little nervous as for the first time in my career I am going to face players like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and of course Rahul Dravid, all great players against slow bowling. But I am also looking forward to take the challenge,” said delighted Enamul.

Speaking from first hand experience: People who are nervous before the exam end up doing really really well. Happened to many friends I know and happened to me a couple of times.

I get a funny feeling jr would make a decent total or get 5 wickets.

Indian team is in a very critical shape now. Most of the players are out of shape and not capable to make high scores. As we have seen before. They are scared of the whole situation and what they are going through. On the other hand the BANGLADESH team is better in shape and can perform better in pressure.....I think Bangladesh is better team in that respect....

I pray for Bashar to win the toss and elect to bat first. Considering the fact that the wicket on day five is prone to spinner friendly since there will be odd cracks on the pitch, I reckon that 2nd inning batting would make the Indians life hell by our slow left armers.

This is what the BBC had to say about Enamul, back in '03

"All the while, Thorpe was trading blows with the Test debutant in a fascinating battle between the master practitioner and a mant 18 years his junior.
The left-hander drove Haque for four to move England into the lead 20 minutes after the resumption before lofting him down the ground for six.
But on this evidence Haque is a spinner of immense talent, and he tested Thorpe's renowned aptitude against spin with variety, flight and pronounced turn."

Never worried about Jr, But I do hope we win the Toss and Bat so the spinners can be effective in 3rd and 4th days, rather than face Kumble in our first innings on Day 3.

On the other hand, if Bangladesh bat first and do well, then India have to bat last against Rafique, Enamul and Sakibal ... the key is batting well, bowling well and fielding well. Do that, and the Tigers can put themselves in a position to win.

Good day will be for BD, if BD will win the toss and make 400+ runs.

If we bowl first we need to restrict India under 200- to win the test...to make a draw we need to restrict India under 350.

[...]i've always wondered y tests are called "tests"[...]

Here's an answer :


The name "Test" is thought to arise from the idea that the matches are a "test of strength" between the sides involved. It seems to have been used first to describe an English team that toured Australia in 1861-62, although those matches are not considered Test matches today.

This was a huge toss...batting first will change everything as we have spinners mostly. Not sure if they can be that useful today...may be in second innings(if even it happens) they can do something!
