i concur but Javed Omor should be kept in our both ODI and Test squads... and rajin is still valuable to us, he just needs to keep playing and find consistency...

24.1 Dilshan to Shahriar Nafees, 1 run, close, Nafees shapes to drive through the covers, the ball gets the underedge and narrowly misses the stumps, the ball rolls behind square

Is God against us too? The one time we get a good start ,we just had to be interrupted by rain.And then the batsmen forget how to play again, either block a hundred balls in a row or just take a swing ...
16.55 local time: And we have interruption No.27...! For a change it's not the rain, it's bad light.
Just when Tushar was looking to settle in...it's universal conspiracy I tell ya!!!Oh well, maybe Ash and Tushar can restart tomorrow.Trivia...how many runs was Ash on at the end of the day's play the time he scored a maiden century?? I smell another one:-D .

This is increasingly becoming frustrating and SN should not have done yet. The problem is all are same, whom you will axe. Rajin was creating pressure by not scoring and not even reading dosras. TI looking so uncomfortable, another low scoring on the card. I hope we can manage 150 some how.

Yeah atlist 150 and more, if Ash can create a Deja Vu from the last test. I hope TI dat kid can settle down tomo and play cricket sensibly and support Ash and create a good partnership

SS
July 11, 2007, 06:55 AM
I don't know what to say but 150 is not possible the way our batters are batting. Murali again made the difference. I wonder when this guy will retire. I wish Rafique could contribute a little more to match this spinner of lanka. I hope this game will atleast go on for four days. But our batters totally let it go. Why SN had to do that, JO as usual somedays great somedays so ordinary, and Rajin failed to read the doosra after so much resistance in other tests. All depends upon now on our Ash and TI. I am not expecting anything extraordinary from our tailenders.

Haider

This is the effect of not playing much first class matches. Young guns without experiece will continue to do that. Whatever Jayabardane may say doesn't matter. Cause he doesn't have to deal with such an inexperienced team.

Imtiazk
July 11, 2007, 07:07 AM
Our batsmen appear to have two modes:either slam, bam, thank you... or "I will not score". Of course, as they ultimately lack class they do get out sooner than later.

But I do not see why they turn down singles which if the non-striker backs up is always on. Rajin missed quite a few like that. In fact, he is the biggest culprit. But SN also turned down a possible Rajin single when the point fieldsman had to run at least 20 yards.

When a few of them doesn't learn you can say it's their fault. But if most of the batsmen continue to do the same mistakes over and over again then there must be some thing wrong with the system.

Well I'm going to be optimistic. Right now we are at a stuttering 72/4. Our best batsman has just begun to bat. Lets say Ashraful scores 75 and Tushar scores 25, and after that they both lose their wickets. That would put us at 172/6. After that Mushy and Mashrafee would still have to bat. Thats hopefully another 50 runs between them wich would put us at 222/8. Tailenders can hopefully provide 28 runs and we are at 250.

Strike rates for both JO and Bashar in this test are 72 !!! I think they were not playing for the TEST rather tried to impress the selectors to be drafted into ODI's !!!!

believe it or not i had similar thoughts as well, at this stage I wouldnt go above 300 although miracles can happen. Lets say Ash can score a century(insha-allah) with Tushar who looks in good touch with 40 as his partner. If one of them goes out the other can partner Mushy and add at least 50 runs with the tailenders adding a couple more. Im not asking Mushy to score another 80 or so and 129 for Ash but if we do it would be a real success. At this moment we are at a good stage to avoid innings defeat. And hey, we already posted more runs than before and almost certainly going to beat first tests total. Not as bad then as previously?

Anything above 100 will be sucess judging by our first 2 tests 1st innings. Ideally 200+ will be an improvement.

72/4 in 29 overs is not so bad if u look at the 1st innings of previes 2 tests.. In the first Test's 1st innings, we were all-out in 31 overs and then in the 2nd Test's 1st innings, we were all-out in 26 overs... so based on these stats, i think we have improved a bit....

We still have 3 specialist batsmen.. and 4 tailenders so i think i can hope for a score of around 151(89+62) at least.. which is the total of the 1st innings of both Tests..

Man I am really mad at the fans who are angry with our performance. I mean people here expect to see a score of 150/0. I mean come on guys, we are not that good yet. People see SriLanka's innings and think why can't we do that. The reason is we are NOT SriLanka and we probably won't be for another 5-10 years. I looked at the scorecard this morning and even though I wasn't giddy for joy, I was pleased with our improvement. I mean 72/4 isn't that bad for Bangladesh. We still have a good chance of getting 200 or more runs and our fans should be happy with that. If they aren't, they will be sad for a long time.

I'm just trying to say we shouldn't expect to score 400 runs, we should just try to be happy with improvement.

Bangladesh squandered a steady start after losing three wickets for the addition of 14 runs. Nafees, who looked impressive, threw away his wicket, giving Sri Lanka the upper hand. The interruptions didn't help, and it's upto Ashraful to start the repair work all over again, weather permitting.

Thanks for your mails and importantly, your patience. Play will start at 10.00 AM local time tomorrow. Till then, this is Kanishkaa signing off. Cheers!

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is excited I know I am. The pitch looks pretty good. If we can hold our wickets in the first 30 minutes, it should be a good batting track for the day.

The good news is that there's bright sunshine and we should get underway on time. Only 29 overs were possible yesterday with the intermittent rain. The pitch has a bit of moisture after yesterday's rain so the overnight Bangaldesh batsmen will have to be on their toes in the first hour at least. No cracks on the surface yet but that doesn't mean that Muralitharan won't be a threat - he picked up two quick wickets yesterday.
