well you can't say much about them when they only get to bowl once per test, that too after the batsmen have put up around a hundred on the board, so that world class batsmen from the other side can bat without any pressure whatsoever.

Yea, and I'm sure converting some of those 50's into hundreds would also help his cause.

The bowlers always have very little to fight with.

The recaps made me think about Mushfiq Babu and Shanto....on the same team...what a shameful nightmare....I won't be able to sleep tonight...the latest installment should get on the home page, come to BC and get a quick visual on the hot buttons...I like that for some of us stuck in meetings all day!

Looks like Dr. Z is so excited about the 2nd Test, that he can't wait for the 3rd one now...that's why 3nd Test already :D

No one bothered to answer my question yet though. Or is it too difficult? Or does your monitor give you some glare if you look at my post? :mad:

I like that. We should have more of these. Like the Sehwag one especially.

Poor Sehwag, what was he supposed to do when journos were nagging the hell out of him about the 20 wickets comment he made before the series?! Apologize?! It was not like Bangladeshi bowlers proved him wrong!

Well, it was not like he could run away from the press conference after winning a Test match. From what I hear, he avoided the question earlier, but Bangladeshi journos just would not let it go.

Fans? Well, where is the fun if you can't be the Monday morning quarterback?!

They bowled out the best Test batting line up currently in the world:
1st innings=243
2nd innings=413/8

I guess you are just kidding Eshen bhai, right?!;)

Let not this thread be another Sehwag thread please... Anyone hijacking this thread will be dealt with my own brand of harsh justice. (or lack thereof)

Eshen
January 21, 2010, 09:57 PM
KP, it will be harsh not to give credit to Bangladeshi bowlers for what they did. They caught Indian batsmen off guard on day one, exploited the condition and ensured a low first innings total. But I would not read too much into second innings bowling, they wanted quick runs and did not mind losing some wickets in the process. At the end they still had wickets in hand (with one specialist set batsman still there), a big total to defend, and plenty of overs to bowl out Bangladesh side.

Again, I don't intend to harsh to our bowlers, not much they could do against the Indian side on a flat and mostly dry (for the duration of their second innings) wicket. But they certainly can't claim they proved Sehwag wrong.

Lol Thumbs up for the Mushy and Shakib ones, they have always pulled the team from disastrous situations. Well deserved. Law I guess is making new laws for the team, lose the first few matches but then fightback to show your spirit >.<

And I can answer your BCB question, "just sit around and wait for the team to win another few matches and be happy, and when they fail again, just come out and say the same things. The team will hopefully win again. BCB doesnt have to do anything other than making the comments :) "
