View Full Version : Do you think Bangladesh can win the TEST

This is a challenging situation now. The time has come when Bangladesh team should show the rest of the world that they can change the pre determined result of the test match before it begin from a Big Team Like INDIA (?). I believe from my heart that Bangladesh Cricket team is capable to do that. Just play their natural game. We already know what Naafes, Gull a can do as an opener. Also think about Ashraful, Sakib, & basher. AGNI PORIKKHA for Bashar (He already proves that he is not good enough for One Day team, now this is the time for the TEST test). Except one selection I think everything is perfect and Bangladesh is set to WIN the first Test against INDIA. The only change is Khaled Masud. As we know he is not with the international cricket for a while. Also we saw that how good form MUSHFIQUE is now. Forget the politics and think about the team that can really win the TEST. AS we say MUSHFIQUE’s performance I think he can do great in the test cricket. This is the time GUYS.
GOOD LUCK TO BANGLADESH TEAM. May GOD be with us all the time.

you need bashar to set aggressive fields
and the batsman need to think about shot selection, if its wide outside off, leave it alone, dont go for a wild slash at it

Batting wont win the test match for Bangladesh, or any country for that matter. To win, we have to bowl the opponents out twice. That's 20 wickets. So we have to have bowling capacity to do just that. Add the weather factor and everything else on top of that. I know Mashrafee is doing great. We also have good spin attack. But given all these, we don't have the bowling to get 20 wickets. So at this point, our best strategy should be to play for a draw. Some of you will argue that we have been close to winning tests at least a couple of times. But I'd remind you that both times, one player stood between a win and a draw/loss and we did not have an answer to that. But if we can improve our batting, if our players just plays sensibly, then we can draw any test. We don't have to be aggressive in batting, don't need 4s and 6s. Just play solid defense....the weather will get to the fielding side.....

The key issue of Bangladesh team will the batting and fielding....those are our strength compared to the bowling. Just have the keep the consistent bowling. No Magic can happen from that point because Indian tem is also a Batting based team. Basher have to set up really tight fielding that thinking about extraordinary bowling from the bowling squad.

Session by session. One at a time. Patience and building partnership. Cook just showed us how to do. However, I feel we have too many petiersons and not enough cooks. At home anything is possible with the heat building up and a buira Indian team... . Australia found out how difficult it was. Ar india tho kothakar sar.

To win overseas we are two fast bowler (with brains) short.

LOL :floor: :floor: :floor: :floor: :floor:

Why can't Bangladesh win...we got all the Indian players out (10 wickets) during the World Cup...so I still have hope .

No one expected Bangladesh to win then...no one really expects them to win now. I'm not saying they WILL win, but I think they CAN win if all the players put in their best effort. Our bowlers are very good (I'm going to miss Razzaq:( )...it's the batting I'm worried about...since I'll be up all night watching the games, I hope they put up a good show...:waiting:

Masrafee and Shahadat are a good pair of fast bowlers - they are certainly equal to any pair on the Subcontinent before the Wasim Akram/Srinath era.

They do the damage on day one, spinners kick in a couple of wickets, then in the second innings the roles change.

Five days is too long to play for a draw.

Bat sensibly, bowl well and keep the pressure on in the field.

Hmmmm.....good question. The answer is: NOT WITH THIS TEAM.
We need players like mushfique, tamim and aftab. These are the players who PERFORM.
Our current team has players like mehrab who plays 150 balls, scores 30 and gets out without even scoring a half century. Just useless in my opinion.

I reckon we give Mehrab a chance to fail in Test cricket before we write him off as a failure in Test cricket.

Your barbs should be directed towards players like Javed Omar and Tushar Imran, who've already shown they're not up to the standard. Fortunately only one of the two managed to make this squad.

i think its rediculous to say that an allrounder shouldnt take the captaincy
dont forget IMRAN KHAN !!!
we should have more aggressive attitude - Mashrafee is the right man for it!

mash's fitness excuse will take us backward
ash is a brilliant player but look at his consistency ...
under pressured as vc
he is too young and still talks like a kid!

Whatmore & Bashar are our bad influence - they make us feel minnow everytime!
they tell the boys in the dressing room "hey let's make this match draw"
and now we see that we can even win it !
they tell the boys "we are here only to be in Super 8"
then we saw the team we beat SA gets to the semi and loose against Ire - shame!

stop underestimate yourself
get 'we are the best' attitude
that will do!

no man....we dont have temparment to win test.Our batsman play test like odis and we need 1 more good fast bowler like mashrafe.

actually this test will be more like an ODI, i think we will end up having to chase 300 with 70 overs...do able, very doable if the wicket stays flat.

but the way our batsmen threw their wickets away against no name bowlers makes me shudder.

i will be happy with any kind of draw, and hope our batsmen can put up 350 in mirpur

This match in all likelihood is heading for a draw. Bowlers from both sides are pretty ineffective on this flat batting track. They only get wickets when batsmen play rash shots in an effort to accelerate the game or due to misguided judegment. Unless Kumble plays tomorrow I wouls say theres a 65% chance of draw, 25% chance of IND win (if their bowlers turn around and become superstars) and 10% chance of BD win (if their batsmen click and dont throw away wickets).

If we bat first in the second test and put up a good total, i think we have good chance of beating india... it will be much sweeter than a ODI series win :)
