:D I believe that BD team will bounce back effieciently tommorrow. Firstly because they are usually good in one innings and poor in the other. I would have loved 2 see at least Ashraful or Sakib and co to get a half century today. But in reply the only positive was Shahadots 2 quick wickets.Hopefully we will move on from today and fight back strongly at least. After all we r the tigerz, arent we? So lets show them what weve got and give it our all. 100% effort is all Im looking for. And we all know the outcome will be really positive if our players give their full concentration and skills on the field. Good luck Bangladesh.Win or lose, young or old, lets support our team. Forget all the players individual performances we failed as a team and as a result failed as individuals.Lets hope we can move on from this, I know we can.

well its the 'pursuit of shommanjonok porajoy' again, so yea there might be couple of 50's and a score of 200+, but theres no consolation there....

The 'loong long' means "long long long time ago - jokhon arob'er lokera banglai kotha bolito". He is just lazy not to type that extra 'long'.
I don't think Jayawardene would declare in 2nd session. I minimum lead of 400 which makes a 500 innings on the card. That would make sure they bat out the entire day. Which wouldn't allow BD to bat on tuesday. Hense instead of tuesday innings it should be a wednesday innings.

Well if we have an alternate mindset of just playing good cricket since winning is rather a bleak possibility, maybe we'd have seen a better outcome. There is however the Murali Factor.

You really want to know what will happen in the 2nd BD innings? There will be another fallout. Total devastation. Too long have we hoped beyond reality only to have our dreams crushed over and over and over and over again.

No it won't. In 2nd innings there will be a score of 350+.

If you keep your hopes high then there is a good chance you will be hurt and disappointed. And if you keep that hope to a modest level or even if you don't have any hope at all then if something comes along the way you will be surprised and happier than if you had the hopes high. This is what life and BD cricket has taught me. :)

"Hope" is what we cling on to when we can no longer anticipate anything else.

However, I do know that Ash will do his best, even with this particular team.

it is a fact, we suck at test specially in SL specially against murali.

so, hold your horses and expect a similar performance. in fact, my suggestion is to take a good night sleep if you are at the western part of the world, you'll feel much better in the morning.

As I said yesterday, Tuesday BD innings was flawless. No wickets fell. It is the wednesday innings that counts. ;)

One of the funniest threads I have come across ever in BC. :)

So, what do you mean by 'bouncing back'? Scoring 400 runs? :-D

I know, there are fans who will do Miandad dancing even if someone score a 30-ball half century. :sick:

To me, the only 'bounce back' can be batting for the whole 3 days; or at least 2 and a half days, to ensure a draw.

relax guys, I believe this quadro of Vaas, Murali, Malinga and Dilhara can pack any other team of the world (ex. Australia) below 200 in their own backyard. They were just tooooo good for our volatile batsmen.

do u know what we should be angry and expect a batting flop
dat way if we flop we wont get dat angry as we were expectin it but if we bat good we will be so happy

Innings and 579. SL didn't score enough.

England 903/7 dec Australia 201 and 123 - (1938)
This is for an away team's highest losing margin.

For a home team losing by the largerest margin was:

Australia 652/7 dec SA 159 and 133 - (2001-02) Not long back.
http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/STATS/TESTS/RESULTS/BIGGEST_TEST_WINS_BY_INNS.html

The current #1 and #2 ranked teams have history of having getting their behind kicked in the worse possible way. Failure is the pillar of success (proved).

At this point we are not featured in the top five in this category. Hopefully it stays that way. :)
Bd has to score 179 to avoid the worst defeat ever in BD history. Tall task.

A little meaningful entertainment when the task is impossibly tall ain't bad. Meaningful refers to the elusive combination of higher percentage shot selection and not throwing your wicket away under any circumstances.

Some times miracles happen. Most of the time we don't get pleasant surprises. One day God will think enough is enough let give these guys a break. Wednesday is going to be such a day. We will bat the whole day. Golla and SN will take us past 150, then there will be two centuries. We will easily avoid innings defeat...then on 5hth day we will make them bat again. Then the rain will start pouring in and the game will be abondoned. It can happen. It can happen during this test match. One thing good about miracles that they do happen.
