To overtake west indies alone (even in their slump) is a big challenge, can someone here explain the ICC rankings, isnt it on points, which in that case would such an incredible task.

good confident approach. hope he maintains this in rainy days.

he is a very confident young bwoi, lol. to get get respect in test matches i fink we r going to have to beat zimbabwes 28 points on the ranking first, and since there is no date for them returning, that number wont decrease.

He has set his target high. It's nice to see. Cause as a captain you need to have a long term goal and that's exactly what Ash is thinking.

rah
June 3, 2007, 09:43 AM
yeh i know it is a long term goal but how long? to get us up there will take us minimum 5 to 6 years, and we would have to win on a high win percent ratio to get in to the top 5 in half a decade

Ash is 22,so he has about 15 years left of him,and if he can find consistency,he alone can drag us to the top 5. :up:

To overtake west indies alone (even in their slump) is a big challenge

But the trend is that windies is going downhill, so at some point we will eventually beat them. I think that it is going to be pretty soon even though the WC match was a lost cause.

If it wasnt for the bouncy pitch and ireland defeat.. we could have beat the windies.
Inshallah a win against the west indies is on the cards.. soon.

June 3, 2007, 01:35 PM
In one days our best hope of beating a major test team consistently is either west indies or england. everyone else is too far ahead.

i would say to ashraful, stop making foolish statements and work on his batting. our test captain averages in the 20s with the bat. time to change that.

Protic
June 3, 2007, 01:41 PM
TigerRoar : dude..you are probably a pakistani or an indian.. cause these days the teams we can easily beat are PAKISTAN,INDIA,WEST INDIES,ENGLAND,NEW ZEALAND,SOUTH AFRICA(specially in asian fields)..
lol.. actually we can beat any team..if 1 or 2 fires at a day.

we must try to be like SL fans and keep our heads level, not like india/pak fans jumping at eveyrthing

We were capable of a couple more wins at least.

I wouldn't be surprised to see us beat any of the bottom 5 teams in a series at home, with a decent slice of fortune.

It's a different matter Away though.

June 3, 2007, 02:00 PM
Aritro.. I will say we will be competitive at home against bottom 2-3 teams but we are not experienced enough to pull series win against them. In away, most asiam teams struggle so what chance do we have. Unless we have some different coaching that the 3 big teams which i dont know of.

But first step is to make ourselves respected at home. at the moment, apart from england and west indies, we wont challenge anyone in a 3/5 match series even at home.

people like protic read too much in one off wins against india and SA, in a tournament like WC. When these teams play a series against us, their entire focus will be on beating us and they will annihilate us.

I can't see the Kiwis excelling in our conditions.

I also think the South Africans would be horribly exposed against our spinners, even though Kallis/Gibbs could destroy us by themselves. There isn't a more hapless batting order in the world when it comes to facing spin.

TigerRoar
June 3, 2007, 02:06 PM
Yes Kiwis and SA do struggle but if you see they find ways to be competitve against Ind/Pak/Sl and even sometimes beat them.

we might win a game in a 5 match series but we are not yet prepared to win series against top teams.

I think some diabolical captaincy was the only thing that saved India in the first ODI. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say we could nick 2 wins in a three match series against a team less adept in our conditions than an admittedly understrength Indian side.

You are, however, correct in pointing out that to date we have proved very near nothing and ought to mute our optimism a little.

Dude.. dont you get it? Im not saying we are equal with India in ODI.. but if we play 3-4 matches with them in a row..we can pull out a VICTORY ..and thats not day dreaming..thats a fact..and i just Posted the results of some of our previous matches to you.. so unless India beats us in 10 straight matches..do not put that shyt..that we are no good to India.

June 3, 2007, 10:31 PM
Boys,

Please don't get your hopes up for the rankings. Even if Bangladesh wins every game for the next year, their ranking may only go up by one.

From what I understand, this is how it works. All the results from the past three years are counted in the points system, and certain number of points is given for a win, series win, etc.

What happens is when say Bangladesh beats Sri Lanka in a few weeks, the losses that Bangladesh had against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka a few years ago will be erased and replaced by the current series, and then the points recalculated.

So say Bangladesh is on 10 points (for arguments sake) and they got no points from their away series in Sri Lanka last time. If they win this time, that 0 from the last series, is replaced by say 2 points. Bangladesh goes up to 12, and Sri Lanka loses 2 points, because they did worse than last time, whereas we did better.

My point is, is that is it going to take a while for Bangladesh to replace all the those bad results from a few years ago, especially for tests. Since it is a three year cycle, it may take that long for Bangladesh to go up. This is why Im not worried about rankings right now, just want to see them be consistent. Maybe later the rankings will be significant.

Protic- nice positive approach from you. I agree that on our day we can beat any team in the world! How can we hope to beat other teams if we don't believe in ourselves!!! Bravo that from you!!!
I am happy that Ash is talking big. As somebody has mentioned here- if he can find consistency he alone can drag us to top 5. And then there is Mash...We are only starting to discover the true potentials of Mash don't know how far this dude will go.
Having said all that, if we are ready to throw our lot here with Ashraful- our skipper, I would ask the fans to stop criticising him whenever he makes a mistake or whenever he can't perform well. If you believe in him, give him your trust and see if he can replay it!

Murad
June 3, 2007, 11:46 PM
to be in top 5.. we need at least 3-4 yrs by winning consistently..

or in 1-2 yr we can atleast enter to the elite 8..

i like the confidence that ashraful having.. hes gonna take us to the top level one day... inshallah...

jabbar
June 4, 2007, 12:01 AM
boys boys boys. now listen closely: BD is a good team, but we are still well below India and other teams. So no arguments, understand? To be "better" than a team, consistency is required - consistent winning, that is.

If we can beat a full powered Australia.. and world #1 South Africa..and then New Zealand..(warm up).. we can beat India , Pakistan any day..maybe they are gonna be consistent beating us ..but we arent gonna be dominated like before.

Baundule
June 4, 2007, 06:31 AM
I have no feeling on what he is telling now. I will wait till his words translate to some good works.

Habibul Bashar was not a bad talker either. After losing each match, almost always, he could correctly be able to focus on the mistakes. But that was all. He used to do the same mistakes in the next match as well. All of us know how he batted in the world cup against Australia, after saying he wants to score 180 in 22 overs.

So, it's quite early to rely so much on Ashraful. Personally, I dont think, he, as a captain, is world class yet and I fear he will not do any better than HaBa. I just hope and wish that he proves my thinking wrong.

Habibul Bashar on Ashraful::

"We played together for the last seven years. Ash (Ashraful) is a very good thinker. He is not only a natural talent but also thinks about the game. He follows the game minutely, which is not so common in his generation. Definitely I will give my best support to him but I hope everybody will have patience on him. He should be given enough time to establish himself as a skipper," hoped Bashar.

Nice Comment..

Ash needs time to settle down as skipper.. we fans should not ask for his head after some failures....

Things have changed, times & teams have changed. Ind Pak is no more what they were in those days, as you said.

I can be as loud as you to say the same. Ash is not Bulsh..ing, BD definitely is going to be one of the top 5 teams in next 4 years, under the same captain. There is no doubt about it.
