View Full Version : ENG vs BCBXI: Day Three

October 13, 2003, 11:22 PM
BCB XI 51/8 in 27 overs.

Hoggard took 5 wickets.

Mushfique out for 8(57), Nadif Chowdhury out for 5(21).

October 13, 2003, 11:24 PM
Who will be our middle order batsman in the Test matches?

Nobody deserves to bat in the Bangladeshi middle order from the BCB XI squad - and yet we have a vacant number 6 position.

October 13, 2003, 11:26 PM
sorry i started another thread at the same time as this one. deleted that.

so much for mushfiq babu. no wickets, no runs.

any news on moniruzzaman. he was vomiting - not a godo sign. was he not wearing a helmet?

Moniruzzaman was fielding at a point position (According to one Bangladesher Khela report of yesterday), so he obviously wasn't wearing any helmet.

At this moment, I am praying the extended weather forecast to be true. Extended Weather Forecast (http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/extended/BGXX0003?promo=forecast&site=www.yahoo.com&par=yahoo)

October 13, 2003, 11:45 PM
So, we need 3 runs with 2 wickets to avoid follow-on!

October 13, 2003, 11:51 PM
I thought 103 runs needed to avoid F/O.

October 13, 2003, 11:54 PM
Law 13 (The follow-on)

(a) In a two innings match of 5 days or more, the side which bats first and leads by at least 200 runs shall have the option of requiring the other side to follow their innings.

(b) The same option shall be available in two innings matches of shorter duration with the minimum required leads as follows:
(i) 150 runs in a match of 3 or 4 days;
(ii) 100 runs in a 2-day match;
(iii) 75 runs in a 1-day match.

October 13, 2003, 11:58 PM
BD: 57/10
Eng: 16/0 (3 overs in 2nd Innings)

Apparently they didn't enforce the f/o.

October 14, 2003, 12:13 AM
They were never gonna enforce it. England needs batting practice more than anything. Obviously they are gonna opt to give their batsmen more time out in the middle than to throw their bowlers out again against a batting line-up that has hardly posed a threat.

October 14, 2003, 12:16 AM
Right on Sham!

October 14, 2003, 01:22 AM
The bcb Xi batting would probably have done the same against the national team while the national team may have scored past 200 against the bcb xi attack ... my point is, this match is not going to give us any indication about what will happen in the real tests. Nadif is not Rajin, Aftab is not Sumon and blah blah blah blah blah.

On the same token, the national team will probably have a hard time keeping England under 300.

October 14, 2003, 01:27 AM
According to Cricinfo.

I don't understand why. I would have let my batsmen get a little more practice then trying to win this match.

Let's hope Hanan and co gets another good training exercise. Good for us actually.

October 14, 2003, 01:31 AM
After their batting collapse I thought they would want to bat all day.

I guess they want to win.

October 14, 2003, 01:36 AM
266 needed in two sessions. I'd ask the top three bats to get a careful start (Nafees and Afteb are future national team contenders), go for those ones and twos and then push for a win. Nothing to lose.

October 14, 2003, 01:39 AM
tehsin you need some sleep. these boys just scored 57. remember pak vs australia in sharjah? look for 59 next...

October 14, 2003, 01:43 AM
Rafiq bhai, this is a safe match. It won't sting even if they go for 30-odd. So, why not shoot for the stars? Try it, it feels good.

October 14, 2003, 01:47 AM
no I agree about going for it, it's just unlikely because the BD batsmen will want to go slow and not lose wickets like the first innings. it's a big score on this pitch. but I see your point, if they are going to get blown out again they might as well do some hitting along the way.

October 14, 2003, 01:50 AM
they're not going to get an opportunity to bat again...surely. or so i thought.

the english were meant to use this opportunity to bat until stumps. oh well...i guess they feel like they have the measure of the pitch, and are going to go for a morale-boosting, face-saving win.

They opened with Thorpe and Clarke, the two who gots ducks in the first innings. With Thorpe, they wanted him to spend some time out in the middle, which he did, scoring 47 off 42 balls. Clarke on the other hand got a match to prove that he deserves a place ahead of Collingwood, but after a duck and 19, both times out to jnr, I think it is quite safe to say that Collingwood will play in the next match and go on to bat at 6 in the Test matches.

I am surprised by this declaration as well. I thought atleast Hussain would have liked a knock. But I think England wants to give their spinners a go. We'll see soon enough if I am right or wrong, but I think Giles and Batty will bowl the majority of the two session left in this match.

October 14, 2003, 01:55 AM
60 overs to play. Serious batting might stage some thrilling experience.

Aftab is batting on 18 and Hannan on 14. Bright start by BCBP XII.One short of first innings score. If we can play out till stumps and not lose more than 3 or 4 wickets, I'll be very happy.

October 14, 2003, 03:25 AM
BCB XI 69/1 in 27 overs.

Aftab Ahmed on 31 (47 balls)
Hannan Sarkar 14 (88 balls)

Is Aftab Ahmed playing for a position at the test squad and pressure of captancy got Hannan Sarkar?

Or is it that Hannan Sarkar is just trying to play responsibly and so playing way too defensively?

October 14, 2003, 03:28 AM

What did I tell you guys about Batty and Giles getting a long bowl. Unfortunately for us, they got wickets too. Anyway, promising stuff from Aftab. If he continues to perform in the next match, I think he will be worth considering for the national side.
