Any score from Bangladesh vs England tour match?

October 12, 2003, 02:35 AM
Damp outfields

October 12, 2003, 02:36 AM
England made to wait

Tour match, Dhaka. BCB President's XI v England.
Pitch inspection at 0600 BST

Bangladesh kids play cricket wherever they can find space
Rain has delayed the start of England's Bangladesh tour opener against a BCB President's XI.

Organisers had been hoping to get the game under way on time following heavy deluges in the last 48 hours.

But the outfield was still deemed unplayable at a 0600 BST pitch inspection and it was decided that there would be no cricket for a further three hours.

Martin Saggers features in a bowler-heavy England line-up for the tourists' first warm-up match.

Among those to miss out were batsmen Nasser Hussain and Paul Collingwood and seamer Richard Johnson.

England, on their first tour of Bangladesh, have been starved of outdoor practice due to continued rain.

As days of wet weather marred on-field practice sessions, they have been forced to travel 90 minutes through teeming traffic for indoor nets.

I'm not going to belt it around the ground like Freddie does but I can hopefully get a few more fifties

Giles on his batting hopes

Spinner Ashley Giles is hoping to strike form after finding it tough to take wickets in the home Test series against South Africa.

"People always say you don't enjoy the good times without a few tears, but I would rather it was good all the time," said Giles.

"I wouldn't say it's focussed me even more, but I certainly look forward to coming back to the sub-continent and the challenge again of bowling a lot of overs and having that bit of responsibility when I have to take some wickets."

Giles can point to previous successes in the region.

He claimed 17 wickets to help England claim an historic series win in Pakistan three winters ago.

Bangladeshi opener Hannan Sarker is likely to lead the home side although their team has not been announced.

England play another three-day match against the Bangladesh A side starting on 16 October, before the first Test begins in Dhaka on 21 October.

Nz need 218 more runs 2 win with 5 wickets in hand.

Australia needs needs more wicket.

October 12, 2003, 02:52 AM
I think it's finished.

October 12, 2003, 02:59 AM
Unfortunately, Aus-Zim 1st test heading for a draw with Aus needs only the 10th zim wkt, because of heavy rainfall just after the tea on the fourth day and may continue to downpour on the 5th day.

Ooooh, need some air now.

October 12, 2003, 03:03 AM
There is a positive for us from this match... we played better, Allaher Dhoyarahmatha)

October 12, 2003, 07:46 AM
Hasib, are you talking about the Zim vs Aus match or BCB XI vs Eng match?

Because if you are talking about the Aus vs Zim match and BD vs Aus matches, then Bangladesh did not play that good against Australia.

Like Bangladesh, this was Zimbabwe's first test against Australia in Australia too, and look what the Zimbabwe tail did - nearly 150 runs off the last 3 wickets! And that - after the middle order of Zimbabwe really collapsing.

Furthermore, Zimbabwe did not go all out for 96 - like Bangladesh. Zimbabwe have scored more than 200 in both innings of this test. They have 3 batsman until now who have scored test match fifites against Australia - Gripper, Vermulen and Ervine, whereas Bangladesh has only two batsman who has test fifties against Australia - the same old Habibul Bashar and Hannan Sarkar. And all this Zimbabwe have done without their injury-hit best player Grant Flower, who is very much capable of playing for Zimbabwe at his age and he would have played for Zimbabwe - if he was not struck by this injury.

Carte Blanche
October 12, 2003, 07:49 AM
Fwullah, please don't forget Australia bowled Ricky Ponting, Darren Lehman and others just for the kick of it. They are in a relaxed mood as the match has already been bagged. Bangladesh didn't have the same luxury. We didn't conceed any world record feat against us in the Aus tour.

October 12, 2003, 09:02 AM
Remember Sherwin Campbell of West Indies? Remember Grant Flower's left arm spin? They are all part timers and yet have very good bowling figures against us.

In addition, don't forget that Australia had only 2 century-makers - Guilchrist and Hayden - yes one of them has made a world record against Zimbabwe, but the other main Australian batsman like Steve Waugh, Ponting, Lehmann, Martyn they have all got out after scoring fifities and less. In total, 7 Australian wickets fell before they have declared.

But we could take only (at best) 5 Australian wickets.

October 12, 2003, 09:18 AM
Obviously Zimb iz a better team cuz

They have more better batsman who are consistent or sometimes become consistent and reliable for the sake of the team and that resulted 150 run in last 3 wickets!!! Only Hannan, and Habibul were consistent and later in oneday I guess Kapali for a while...on the other hand in Zimb ...first innings was Gripper, Wishart, Ebrahim, Vanmeulen was there to score the total run but in the second innings though top and middle order collapsed Vermeulen, Carlisle, and tail order Ervine, Streak, even Blignuat and Price contributed something. But for us so far if hannan, habibul, rajin or alok don't score nobody scores.

October 12, 2003, 10:27 AM

I want to say something to you.You said that Zimbabwe is better then Bd.Dont mention that.But if u say about Present Zimbabwe then i have to say that Bd r now better than Zimbabwe all side(Batting,Bowling,Fieding).But if u say that "Will Bd defeated Zimbabwe?"I then have to say "No".But u watch that Zimbabwe loss many of their good player.Such as 2 Flower, Olonga, Jonsson , Goodwin etc player.Include all these player Zm Defeated any big team by innings.But now a days Bd is strong team Than Zm(Although Flower Said"It takes more 2 years to equal".

I say this seeing Recent performence of Bd player.So .................

I agree with BangladeshCricket.

You seem to have a sound knowledge on Bangladesh Cricket as a whole.
