Nope, Durban disaster was more humiliating. At least we lost to a professional (and 3rd ranked team of ICC) kiwi side side who tamed Australia 3-0 in their own backyard earlier this year (they are hungry after collapsing in South Africa and Australia). But the Canadians were simply a bunch of part-timers with near zero experience. :sick:

December 31, 2007, 12:00 AM
the problems are many.

this series once again highlight that our batsmen do not "know" how to bat in one dayers or in Tests or in T20Is. but we have 3 seperate problems.

in Tests the key is to pick the bad ball and defend the rest or shoulder your arms. the bad balls are the ones you score from. in ODIs, the commies mentioned how we "look for the boundaries" all the time. yes, during the PP its okay to look for some 4s or 6s, but actually running runs is key. whether they are 1s, 2s, or 3s, it doesn't matter. we don't do this, and then pressure builds and we try to hit a 3rd 4 in the over and sky one to midwicket.

in the middle overs, it is paramount to be able to score 5 rpo without any boundaries at all. boundaries should be rare and that should mean that u can score 6 an over in that time. an over should look like this: (.21..3). there were 3 dot balls and no boundaries, yet still 6 runs were taken. that won't always be possible, but an over should look like this at least: (1121.1).

NZ batsmen made the game look so easy. yet they don't have a single player with the batting "talent" we do. their players do not look like stroke makers whereas we have tamim, aftab, and ashraful. but they still got the job done. and they did in bruising fashion.

NZ also ran between the wickets like demons, and they fielded as if their lives depended on it. at times we can also RBW like superstars and field like acrobats, so i'm not so worried about that. but if you want to know why we were clincally mauled, its because the kiwis remember each and every little one of the basics.

Al, you don't call McCullum a stroke-maker? He disdainfully walked down the pitch to our so-called strike bowlers and hit them all over and out of the park. Didn't cop a single bouncer to his body. I call that plenty stroke-ful.

I am used to digesting this kind of losses for BD cricket, but what I dislike the most are the statements/promises of playing better cricket in the next game by every BD captain. Like it or not we are at the bottom of the ranking and unless we get better our captains should not try to make statements with very little substance behind it. We are better of holding back those unsubstantial optimisms and take one game at a time to improve our standard. Once we can see a sustainable consistency only then we should make those promises.These pre-game talks from our captains are really getting rediculous.

I dont think this is the most painful than losing to Canada. yes, if we lose to Namibia next world cup,, yeah that would be sad.

Losing to NZ with this margin is humilating but its still against a country that can thrash any other team in the world in their own backyard.. Their 6.7 feet players just tamed the 5.3 tigers like Azlaan,, but I dont think this is something the tells the whole story....The night is always the darkest before the dawn...:)

Actually, it is. There are three criteria for ranking the results margins: By wickets, by runs, and by balls remaining. This match is the highest we've gone on any of those lists...

By the way, while I'm at it, you guys will be relieved to know that this match is not the most one sided game in history. We're fourth on the list. WOOOOOOOOOT:bravo::joy:

Most of us (the fans) have this really bad habit of over hyping our players as much as possible and underrating the opposition players as much as possible. However crappy the Kiwi batting line-up is, it's miles ahead of ours in reality.

1. All of their batsmen average at least 30 to mid 30s, despite being inconsistent. None of them have worse strike rate than our batsmen (excluding Aftab/Ashraful)

2. Ross Taylor already has more ODI centuries than Ashraful despite playing for only 1 year. And he can win matches against Aussies.

3. The talentless bunch of How, Fulton are better than our "talented" Sakib, Mehrab, Rajin in every way.

4. Oram is miles ahead of any BD pacer-allrounder, and probably as good as any BD pacer in terms of effectiveness.

5. McCullum can be labelled as poor man's Gilly, something we don't have yet.

Maybe our players also think like the fans, and probably thats why we are improving so little.

This is the only match in the series I watched live and what a disappointment!

it's not fair to single out individual players, but I think the senior guys like aftab and ashraful need to take their share of the blame. Despite scoring a 50, aftab still looks like he's only in the side for a short cameo. Ash should have made his business to stay until the end of the innings. It's not fair to blame the bowlers as 90 odd is impossible to defend.

Tushar too looked well out of his depth and I think he's pretty close to another long spell in thw wilderness. Aftab too should be left out of ODIs for the near future to give some of the younger lads a chance. I'd persist with the likes of Reza and Junaid though...

Dhakablues
December 31, 2007, 05:14 AM
Yeah,, certainly the scapegoat would be Tusher but I have to ask, what did mashrafee/mushfique/aftab/sakib/forhad/junaed do special? Was it ever a situation where tusher came where he was not under pressure? Offcourse the axe will fall on him... but if we are to really find the root cause of this debacle go no futher than just one word.... responsibility and technique. Aftab/Ashraful/mashrafee never played with their responsiblity, never applied their experience and simply lacked the tecnique to score singles, score in the gaps. With/Without players like Tusher/Pilot,, we will continue but we will not solve the real problem of these debacles.

In Nairobi, we blamed Mashud.. but what was the entire team doing that day? Today, we blame Tusher but what happened to the other "talented" "young" players? Lets stop this non-sensical fingure pointing like Paltan politicians and take the defeat as an 'opportunity' to focus on our improvements than feeding the frenzy.

Has he ever delivered in any of those pressure situations? Many times he played at #3, with the same result. Even if he delivered as inconsistently as Ash/Aftab, he wouldn't become automatic choice for scapegoat. He has only himself to blame for that.

When Australia defeated them in the World cup, it took more than 5 overs, so I would say that this is their worst defeat against a test team. 2 bad defeats against associate teams were Canada and Ireland.

Beamer
December 31, 2007, 12:14 PM
Yes. This one ranks up there as one of the most embarrassing losses. We need to erase it from our collective memory as soon as possible and that goes to both players and fans. I suggest, we lock away this thread in the basement and only unlock it after we win the WC in four years time to reflect how far we have come. Ok, wishful thinking ..

There is no point in dissecting this match. I would not know where to start and finish. I actually stopped watching it. Its a brand new year and all we can do is start fresh and hope the players will take it personally and battle every ball.

Our problems are plenty. There will be no quick fixes. Technical problems aside, the main area of focus should be on how can we become mentally tough. That is the key to me.

Asad

I rate McCullum as one of those exceptional players in the Gilchrist mode. He is a great striker of the ball. He was my TP 1 ( target ), followed by Styris, who is as good as any one day batsman in the world. Oram is one of the finest all rounders. Their other batsmen, namely, How, Fulton, Taylor, Sinclair, collectively, are better than all of our batsmen sans Ash. Bowling wise, Vettori is one of the best middle over bowlers in the world. His one day record speaks for himself. New Zealand was always one of the better one day sides in the world in last six years. Consider the quality one day players that have retired : Flemming, Nathan Astle, Craig Mc Millan, Chris Cairns..

Most of us (the fans) have this really bad habit of over hyping our players as much as possible and underrating the opposition players as much as possible. However crappy the Kiwi batting line-up is, it's miles ahead of ours in reality.

1. All of their batsmen average at least 30 to mid 30s, despite being inconsistent. None of them have worse strike rate than our batsmen (excluding Aftab/Ashraful)

2. Ross Taylor already has more ODI centuries than Ashraful despite playing for only 1 year. And he can win matches against Aussies.

3. The talentless bunch of How, Fulton are better than our "talented" Sakib, Mehrab, Rajin in every way.

4. Oram is miles ahead of any BD pacer-allrounder, and probably as good as any BD pacer in terms of effectiveness.

5. McCullum can be labelled as poor man's Gilly, something we don't have yet.

Maybe our players also think like the fans, and probably thats why we are improving so little.

Could not agree more.

Agree with RazabQ.

any doubt? i think this is the worst day for any test playing nation against another test playing nation, dont know who should i blame? shame on BD player.

Yeah, its true. In the first match I was really shocked as I was expecting definitely a win, after that I didnt have that hope to win however yesterday I couldnt believe my eyes what I was watching. was spechhless, shocked.

waiting for that day when our players will shine again.

Geeez!! Ato frustrated hoiley ki bhabey hobey?

Look at the bright sides folks..

19 ball 50 is not a record last checked. At least the fastest century wasn't scored against BD team. Thank you BD batsmen for not scoring another 23 more runs. Good strategy!!

Every player had enough time left for a 18 hole round. Some fast players like McCullam may have squeazed 36 holes who knows.

Finally, (seriously) McCullam's innings was a freak one. One can not judge the degree of defeat by that. You don't see Australia judging ran a ball 100 of Ash like that. Look at How's score. 7 runs only. The pitch had juice on it. Just that McCullam went out there and tried to have fun. Wasn't he dropped once?

Forget this event and move on.

Bangladesh captain Mohammad Ashraful, who top-scored with 25 off 31 balls however did not blame the pitch.

“No excuses. We just played very poor cricket today. We would have also fielded probably if I had won the toss but there was nothing out of the ordinary in that pitch. They just bowled in a channel and we capitulated,” said Ashraful who was still hopeful about the Test series that starts in four days.

“The batsmen have generally looked comfortable here and they are letting go the balls nicely in the centre and also in practice. That auger well for the longer version games.”

Coach Jamie Siddons felt the performance today was inexplicable.

“It’s very hard to describe that performance and why that happened so badly but it happened. I’m not sure where it came from but we are embarrassed by it and it’s a big, big loss and I don’t think I have ever been associated with one so bad,” Siddons said. The coach nevertheless thought that this disappointment was part of a growing process.

“When I took the job I knew that we were not competitive with the top four-five sides in the world on a regular basis. These are young boys who will have good days and bad days and as a young player I know what kind of mistakes they can make. We just need to continue working harder.”

Siddons said New Zealand’s ploy of playing on the patience of the Bangladeshi batsmen worked out perfectly.

“I don’t think they wanted to bowl us out today. They were more consistent and put the ball in the right areas to make scoring very difficult for us and then the batsmen made mistakes under pressure.”

With the arrival of experienced Habibul Bashar, Shahriar Nafees Ahmed and Enamul Haque Jr. for the Test series Siddons believed the Tigers can come back with dignity if they can become a bit more predictable.

“We are capable of anything. We can respond really well or we can capitulate. The consistency is what we are seeking. The three players have joined us today and had their nets. Among them Bashar is a proven player of the short ball and is almost certain to come at three.

“We were badly exposed today and that is good for me also because that means we have a lot more work to do and it gives me a lot more ammunition to remind the players that they can’t stop working hard.”

we have every right to bash these money suckers.... i mean yesterday, no offense to anybody, but they showed every reason why we should not support bangladesh...

I think we just expect too much from a team that is really not all that great. Barring Ashraful there are NO players that can match the top quality players in the world. Frankly, I do recall what Watmore used to say,, we are in the process of creating match winners,, we are not there yet. He was right. We are what we are,, the number 9 team in the world and yesterday proved that once more. Thats the crude fact.

there is a solution to these problems...


1. we should not be interested in any players to perform, rather the player should himself be interested to contribute. players who work hard and would do anything to stay in the team and in form... those are the players we want!!!


2. no offense to Sohel NR, but i thought opening "Junaed Siddique, next superstar..." thread was a bit too early. it just goes to show how everyone hates Javed here... shame :(, after this series, i propose that Junaed goes back to Bangladesh and play domestic league/A team or overseas for at least three more years before making a comeback to the team.

3. Shahriar Nafees should be brought back, if and only if he is willing to contribute towards team success.


why blame the bowlers? why should we even think about defending 62, 93, or 55? we need some solid selection policy in BCB.

pick players who has played at least 60+ domestic matches and has performed reasonably consistently with average around 30-35ish would sound o.k. not pick some rookie who scored a century and fades away after short spark-plug!!! why blame players if they are still in the learning process...


other solution would bee to stop hoping for a victory, not care anymore, keep the same squad we have now, and despite how they perform, keep the same losers and make them winners by 2011, that is the only other way i see it.

Checkmate!! Just one wicket keepers from each of the team can mop the floor with our team which includes: McCullum, Dhoni, Sangakkara, Gilchrist, yes and even Boucher.

It's not the worst of all performances. We just have to be patient...playing blame game is easy. Being patient is not.
This was the worst of all performances relating to ODI. What you dont think making a world record constitute to a worst ODI performance?

I have often said to expect the worst but hope for the best. Well, this is what happened. i had very bad vibes, that is the reason I never logged on once to the forum, I felt it in my heart that Bangladesh will get a good thrashing. They should have changed the team, Nz already knew what to look for. I am surprised at the coach, management and captain. They should have played Omar, nafees and Sajidul.hOW WORSE COULD IT HAVE BEEN? Well, it is all water under the bridge now, the damage has been done now, now major repairs are needed, but if one believe in fairy tales, then our team need a guardian angel very badly.

I suggest UDEY HOSSAIN as Guardian Angel. I bet he can beat the hell out of these players...
