View Full Version : Eng vs BCB XI Day Two

October 12, 2003, 11:55 PM
:o BCB XI gave away 7 wides and 7 no balls and our test match bowler Anwar Hossain Munir and our one day bowler Mushfiqur are the culprits giving away 3 no balls each!

They must be playing the match like a real practice match too! :(

Trescothick is on his way to a hundred.

Score 180/2 in 62 overs

Trescothick 90 not out 174 balls
N Hussain 17 not out 47 balls

October 13, 2003, 02:26 AM
Did you just see that? I went to shower when the scorecard showed 180-2 lunch Day 2, and then when I returned - voila! England - the full-strength England team are 183 for the loss of 6 wickets.

This is what spin bowling does. :lol:

The future spinner of Bangladesh Enamul Haque Junior takes 3 wickets and Gazi Alamgir - the not so impressive medium pacer takes 1 wicket in that spell.

October 13, 2003, 02:31 AM
That news made my night

October 13, 2003, 02:37 AM
Trescothick, Thorpe, Hussain and Clarke fell on 181.

October 13, 2003, 02:41 AM
"Trescothick was caught off a no-ball by Mushfiqur Rahman as he tried to loft over mid-off but it was a defensive stroke which eventually brought about his downfall.

He pushed forward to the first ball of the afternoon session from spinner Enamul Haque and was picked up at silly mid-on.

Thorpe followed four balls later when he attempted to sweep and only succeeded in top edging a catch.

Worse was to come as Nasser Hussain played around a full length ball from seamer Gazi Alamgir and was adjudged lbw, having struggled for 19 overs to make 17.

And Clarke followed almost immediately as he misjudged a delivery from Haque and Aftab Ahmed ran back to take a looping chance."

did you say sleep? oh damn! i forgot to sleep, brb after my sleep .....:duh:

October 13, 2003, 05:20 AM
Wow! I can't believe this! Didn't expect this at all from a team of mostly under 19's! Go BD cricket! We are on our way to the top. I think in this series, we will stop the losing streak.

October 13, 2003, 05:32 AM
We need Anwar Munir and Enamul Junior in our Test team. What a pair it will be - Rafique and Enamul Junior!

It seems that we need Dave Whatmore also to coach our U-19 team.

October 13, 2003, 08:07 AM
Weeeelllll its not toooo bad... I mean they did more than it was expected of them... they r still learning...

October 13, 2003, 08:09 AM
Heres one that Chinaman missed

October 13, 2003, 08:47 AM
We suck in batting. So much was expected from Hannan and Nafis and see what the hell they did; 7 and 0. Its good that we haven't included Nafis in our natinal squad. Let him learn and make him wait another two years at least just like Rajin.

October 13, 2003, 09:06 AM
Only Mushfique is surviving! Lets see how long he can survive tomorrow.

I expected Hannan to do a bit more than what he did, actually was expecting something in the region of 20s if not a fifty.

October 13, 2003, 09:35 AM
Give them Time.

And they give you the right Form.


October 13, 2003, 10:07 AM
Well, now it looks like the pitch has something in it for the bowlers. The first test match will certainly be a result match unless rain interferes for more than a session or two.

October 13, 2003, 10:23 AM

England's Mark Butcher resumes at the crease on day two alongside Marcus Trescothick, but Butcher is dismissed with the total on 127

October 13, 2003, 10:24 AM

Former captain Nasser Hussain joins Trescothick at the crease and the pair struggle to build a partnership

October 13, 2003, 10:25 AM

Hussain falls in the next over for lbw after battling through 19 overs for his 17 runs, as England suffer a middle-order collapse

October 13, 2003, 10:25 AM

Chris Read and Gareth Batty attempt to restore some composure to the England innings and share a seventh-wicket stand of 55, Read making 43

October 13, 2003, 10:26 AM

The partnership is broken when Batty is bowled by left-arm spinner Nadif Chowdrey and the tail soon follows leaving England all-out for 253

October 13, 2003, 10:27 AM

England's opening bowlers set about repairing some of the damage and the returning Matthew Hoggard takes three quick wickets

October 13, 2003, 10:27 AM

With the ball swinging in the gathering gloom Martin Saggers claims his first two wickets for England to leave the BCB innings in disarray

October 13, 2003, 10:28 AM

Steve Harmison grabs a sixth wicket for England and leaves the BCB President's XI on 46-6 at the close of play.

Graham Thorpe follows four balls later, when he top-edges an attempted sweep behind

October 13, 2003, 10:37 AM
These lads did similar to Lanka tour as they're doing it here. In lanka tour they all got out for a low score in the very first match. But from then on they all did very good in the longer version.

But here they don't have much of a chance in this 2 n qtr day match to bat again, unless follow on. They might not get chance to bat 2nd innigs to prove 'em worth while.

I'm more than positive, thease kid are good and they will shine later.

Or else, they all picked up Fahmidas' shower curse or Desi-unseasonal rain shower curse. May be

October 13, 2003, 02:05 PM
awesome....just AWESOME!...now lets see some of our cubs club the leather out of the ball...some president's XII we have eh?

October 13, 2003, 02:11 PM
wow! Just checked the score....bd 46/6?!?!?!?!? Holy....lets hope our young colts can salvage something from this position... a score in excess of 100 would be too awesome under the circumstances...

Remember, fwulalh, time your showers right today, we are fighting for our lives here...:)

October 13, 2003, 06:55 PM
you all have to calm down a little bit. England's 253 wasn't really a bad score in the circumstances. And given that a batting line-up consisting Trescothick, Vaughan, Thorpe, Hussain and Butcher didn't do too well on the pitch, did you guys really expect BCB President's XI to score too many?

I don't think the pitch is playing very well. I didn't get to follow the game last night because I was away, but judging by the match report, a lot of batsmen in the England side seem to have miscued, which leads me to believe that the ball was not coming on to the bat. But then again, England bowled with a lot of slips and got our batsmen caught behind, so the ball must have been shaping away nicely as well.

I think more than anything, yesterday showed us who exactly we should look out for and thats Hoggard. He will trouble us with his accuracy and the way he shapes the ball away from the right-hander.

October 13, 2003, 09:00 PM
Three or four batsman gave catches behind the wicket in slips while playing offstamp balls!!! didnt we use to do the same thing before Whatmore gave us some advices!!!

October 13, 2003, 09:36 PM
wow.. what an interesting match this 'turned' into..

the English collapse is a hint for the coach/selectors for stacking up the spinners.

Also, what’s up with the toss? Did I miss something? why didn't Bangladesh bat after winning the toss?

now, looking for a batsman from this team, who's this guy 'Extra'?? he scored the highest runs - 12 and you are still looking??

October 13, 2003, 10:02 PM
hoggard's post match audio interview suggested there was a bit of swing.. something else to think about

October 13, 2003, 10:05 PM
Not taking the match seriously. The bowlers did well against the English. However, this is their first look at the wicket. They will get accustomed, that's what practice matches are for.

As for the bats, they are kids, they are horribly out of match practice. There hasn't ben any league, tours for them. I don't think they would have done much better but they would have definitely done better then 46 for 6.

October 13, 2003, 11:11 PM
Talking about out of match practice - have you seen how many no-balls that particularly Anwar Hossain Munir and Mushfiqur Rahman bowled?

And surprisingly, no other bowler bowled no-balls.
