Bangladesh in New Zealand, 2007-08
Tigers blow strong start as New Zealand cruise to victory
26 December 2007
Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful scored an entertaining 57 ball 70 to earn the man of the math of award, but could not prevent his side's loss against the Kiwis in the first ODI of the three-match National Bank Series in Auckland today.

Ashraful and young opener Tamim Iqbal (50) dominated the Kiwis in their 97 run 3rd wicket partnership and lifted Bangladesh from a tentative start after New Zealand won the toss and opted to field first.

Toothless batting followed by toothless bowling---sums it all up. Well done Ash now hit a 57 ball 100 next match.

Couple of comments

The title of a South African newspaper story is uncannily similar to yours. Their title is "Bangladesh blows strong start against Kiwis". link - http://www.int.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=6&click_id=17&art_id=nw20071226062337789C565564

Also, "Man of the Math"? Spell check didn't catch that, obviously. Front page articles need to be proof-read before posting.

Yes the bowling was toothless but the batting was ok to me because this is the frst time Bangladesh scored 200 runs agains NewZealand. All credits to Ashrafool, Tamim and Razzak. But the bowling was really toothless. Mashrafe is out of form with both ball and bat. Mashrafe was looking impressive with his pace ( 135-139mph) but he didn't manage to swing the ball. He should swing the ball with that speed to trouble the batsmen. Shahadat needs more time to be a good ODI bowler.

As Souran pointed out, I think the BC bulletin has further errors. Cricinfo scorecard says MOM is JM How (New Zealand).

I hope future match reports will be more polished.

Thanks pocha for pointing it out.

Unfortunately the same Cricinfo scorecard was showing Mohmmad Ashraful as the man of the match, it wasn't invented by me.

They have corrected their mistake afterwards which I did not notice.

Our title has two parts and I am sure at least 10 other reports are sharing titles similar to the second part (New Zealand cruise to victory). Is there any media outlet which has exactly same title as BC?

On "Man of the Math", it was a pure mistake and I apologise for that, but spell checker won't catch "math" as a mistake. For your information, all front page bulletins (this one is a bulletin not article) are proof read before posting, but still mistakes can happen and I believe this is a rare mistake from BC.

Anyway, thanks for your suggestion.

MOM is Ash.....

Now I am confused. I mentioned Ash in the original match bulletin and later changed it after pocha's post. Cricbuzz is still showing Ash as the MOM, Cricinfo initially showed the same, but they are now showing Jamie How as the MOM.

This is what Siddons had to say about Bangladesh.

Bangladesh coach Jamie Siddons said his side had looked to get 280 when it should have been more concerned with ensuring a total of at least 250.
Several players, including Ashraful, threw their wickets away.
"We broke a few team rules, so we'll talk about that and hopefully make sure it doesn't happen again.
"If we get those sorts of starts, you can't afford to fall away that quickly and that badly," Siddons said. "We've got to make sure we get 250 and bat our 50 overs."

BTW, can anyone confirm the MOM of the last match?

On sky sports highlights, the commentator said ash became the MOM

I think cricinfo made the mistake initially and others copied,later they rectified. Here's the confirmation source from nz sports portal.

http://sportal.co.nz/Cricket-news-display/black-caps-grab-first-blood-40841


Opener and man-of-the-match Jamie How top scored with 88 off 119 as his side easily chased down Bangladesh's sub-par score of 201, shaking off criticism garnered from the recent 0-2 Chappell-Hadlee Trophy loss to Australia where he struggled to keep a steady run-rate.


Anyway,I wish bd had won instead anybody earning personal glory

Pocha, did you watch the presentation live? Those who watches said Ashraful was the MoM. Don't care what the scorecard says.

No I didnt care to watch the presentation live after the dismal show. But can you tell me who are "those" who watched it live as obvious in your remark?

Anyway as I said before, I would have been happier had the team won instead of any personal glorification.

Since you asked ... the first part matches only with the one article that I mentioned. While the second part of the title is fairly common, the first part is a nice summary of what happened. This is why it caught my eyes when I looked at the title. Why are u getting your feathers ruffled? It could very well be the case that the SA news paper plagiarized from your article.

Is it?

Here's a link for you, at least 10 other media outlets have used the first part as their headline. (http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=UTg&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&q=Bangladesh+blow+strong+start&spell=1)

Please stop crabbing and grow up man!!

Suaron - Miraz - please move on. Sauron was not necessarily being "crabby" and was conciliatory in his response.

Sauron - many a times our news bulletins have independently used common sports phraseology - "blows strong start", "hapless Bangladeshis", "seizing the initiative" et al... Happens to the best of 'em.

Miraz - those 20 links were all using a single AFP source btw.

Now, can I redirect y'alls energy to come up with the most unoriginal headline to describe the first ODI using over-worn cricket cliches? Feel free to borrow a page from Shastri's playbook (badda bing).
