View Full Version : Kenya vs Pakistan

August 29, 2002, 02:08 PM
Even though Pakistan won by ONLY 4 wickets, I'd say it was their fault.
By the way, the team that scored 300+ against BD A at will flopped for 133 all out. AWWWWWWWWWWWW

By the way, since Pakistan only managed 134 for 6 in 33.3 overs, does that mean that the BD A batsmen didn't really play that bad ? (kidding, don't get too excited about that remark)

If you recall, BD A scored 290+ in the last one day match against this (almost) same outfit.

So all of this mean nothing.

We have to show we can win before saying anything. It's the win that counts.

Aussies won by 224 runs with Pakistan getting all out for 108. I guess that 133 for 6 against Kenya the other day wasn't a fluke. Pakistan IS playing horrible, wish I could watch it. :)
Heyden scored 146 of 128 balls and Gillespie took 5 for 22.
When Bangladesh plays Australia, Ash will score 146 off 108 balls and Shujon will take 5 for 23, Muhahahahahaha.

Pak recovered well to win by 7 wickets.

It will be interesting to see how Kenya does against Australia. That mioght give ab indication of how seriously they will take us.

Seems like Kenyans have had their share of injuries too.

Kenyans battling injuries
Michael Donaldson - 1 September 2002

NAIROBI, Sept 1 AAP - It's hard enough for Kenya to compete against Australia and Pakistan in the triangular cricket tournament here but a couple of injuries have made things even worse for the host nation.

Kenya lost promising all-rounder Hitesh Modi after the first game against Pakistan when he had a finger broken by Shoaib Akhtar.

And ahead of today's loss to Pakistan, opener Ravindu Shah broke his big toe when batting in the nets.

In some pain, he still went out - bravely or foolishly - to face Shoaib and Wasim Akram with the new ball but made just one run off eight balls.

It didn't help Kenya's cause as it lost by seven wickets, Pakistan making 3-181 in reply to Kenya's 179.

Kenya coach Sandeep Patil said Shah would take no further part in the tournament after having a fracture diagnosed.

"It's very sad for those two players because matches like this come our way only now and then," Patil said.

He hoped both players would be fit for the Champions Trophy in Colombo where Kenya takes on South Africa and the West Indies.

Pakistan captain Waqar Younis was happier with a better showing from his side but was still concerned his fast bowlers gave away 18 extra runs (12 wides and six no balls).

But Pakistan has bowled first in all three games so far and Waqar said the cool, overcast conditions made it difficult to control the ball.

"The ball is really hard to control in the early morning - that's why it's a little difficult for Wasim (Akram) in particular to get control of it."

Shoaib, handed the new ball for the first time in the tournament, looked menacing as he bowled at close to his fastest, clocking one ball at 156kph.

Pakistan was in a little trouble at 3-54 but a partnership of 127 between Younis Khan (87 not out) and Misbah-Ul-Haq (50 not out) got it home in the 39th over.

Australia, meanwhile, named an unchanged team for the match against Kenya, which starts today at 9.30am (4.30pm AEST).

The Aussies felt sorry and let them go from 17 for 6. Here's a bit from Cricinfo:

35.3 Watson to Angara, OUT: yorker goes straight as he plays accross the

Kenya 84/10, Partnership of 1
JO Angara b Watson 1 (8b 0x4 0x6)
AO Suji 8* (39b 1x4) SR Watson 7.3-2-13-2 (1w)

Kenya all out for their lowest ever total in a ODI and should be an
easy task for Australia
Australia will be a bit dissappointed letting them off from 17/6 to
84 all out
Gillespe maybe bowled two overs too many when the Kenyans did score
Australia will bat now before lunch is taken

September 2, 2002, 06:25 AM
(do not read the following seriously ... just an AGAM note for those who get excited about everything)
Kenya atleast took Australia to 17 overs. I see Manju as Suji and the rest will probably be useless. By getting all out for 84, Kenya has set a stiff target for Bangladesh (I'm kidding here) which will be hard for our batsmen to beat (not kidding on this issue, we might fold within 50). An 8 wicket loss is a possibility but everything depends on how we play that day.

On second thought, we can post anywhere between 150-180 (why not?) and Australia can have a slow start but eventually get there within 22-27 overs, 32 max.

If they bat first, we might end up looking at 360+ (easy) for 5-8 depending on how adventurous they get.

I sure hope Sharif gets back to open with Manju.

September 2, 2002, 09:10 AM
Do you know that Sharif is our YOUNGEST TEST DEBUTANT? He is, on paper.

And so far, we have lots of players debutante in test cricket who are aged between 16 to 19 so far:

1) Sharif
2) Mashrafe
3) Talha (second youngest after Sharif)
4) Ashraful (may be third youngest)
5) Tushar Imran
6) Alok Kapali

As for the Kenya's performance in this tournament, to me, it gets to show EXACTLY HOW WEEK Bangladesh A bowling line up is.

Only Kennedy Otieno Obuya is in good form and Tikolo, Odumbe have the worst form of their life - kind of like the form that our Aminul and Akram had while they played against Kenya.

But, the thing is that a Odoyo - not the Thomas Odoyo who is playing for Kenya in this TriNations tournament, another Odoyo had scored a hundred against our A team bowlers (against Tapash Baisya, Anwar Hossain Munir and Alamgir Kabir, Ashraful) in the last three day match. If it was in a one day match, then I would not be taking this fact seriously as we all know how indisciplined our any pace attack is - whether be it national or not-national.


And within the next couple of years, I am looking forward to :mad: see :( our batsman getting all out once again for a new low.

And don't forget, the lowest Test innings total is 26 runs - far too much :( :( :( for our present batsman to score against South Africa in South Africa in the forthcoming test series.

September 2, 2002, 09:14 AM
Oh, and I forgot to mention how many of our batsman will get hurt in hands and elsewhere in South Africa and as a result, we will have our third string national team batting in the coming world cup.

(We already have our second string pace attack bowling for the national team in the last SL tour and in the following International Matches coming up.)

September 3, 2002, 10:56 AM
BD can and might get all out in 20 runs against Australia. But thats when everyone sucks.

Potential wise, We have some excellent talents, such as Sumon. That guy alone can take score over houndred against any team (except Srilanka). Ash, also has proved he has the talent. Golla, the old Golla could hang on for a long, long time.

Yes, Australia might have the dedliest bolwing in the world, but we have played Pakistan who is as good and Ash has taken Murali to bowling lessons.

Anyways, we all know what will happen. Everyone will suck, and BD will score probably 70-100.

September 3, 2002, 11:45 AM
History between Bangladesh and Australia-New Zealand is that once we score 120 odd runs against one team, we score 180 odd runs against the other team. And vice versa.

So, if history repeats itself, I would be happy.

But personally, I would be looking forward to the individual performances more than the team performance in ICC Championship squad.

September 3, 2002, 12:38 PM
Isn't it time the players all get together and give us something to celebrate ? Aren't we entitled to an upset ? Since Habibul Fan is in the room, I'll leave the Aussies alone but how about an upset over new Zealand ?
I don't know how we are going to do it just like I don't know how we managed to lose almost every test within three days. If that can happen, why not the opposite ?

September 4, 2002, 12:03 AM
Nope - there are still a few games left for sorrow.

The next 5 One Day and 2 Test matches that Bangladesh is going to play is all against big guns - Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

And in the next games - in the West Indies tour of Bangladesh, we can expect for some good performances.

And then - we can hope for some better results teamwise in the world cup.

You see, in the SL tour, individual performances were at very low. The players will need some time to go high.

And as Bangladesh will play only one one day game against Australia and Zealand, so the players will need some time to adjust - to their level. What is good for us is that the players will get to face height balls (chest-high balls) in slightly favorable slower pitches.

Also, the players will need to adjust to the conditions of South Africa. But, as we all know that South Africans aren't as accurate as the Australians, so players who can adjust to those conditions quickly can perform.

BUT, in Bangladesh, they will face chest height balls at home - and West Indians are not so good as Aussies, Kiwis and Springboks. So, better performance against them is likely. So is likely the chance of boosting up the confidence of each player.
