Hope raqibul and nazim plays in this match, very curious to see their performance.

Looking forward to seeing SN, and ofcourse Mushfique, find their form with the bat. Can Mushy be sent at no. 3 for god's sakes ?? Also, Enam needs a good game under his belt BADLY, and that too ASAP! Don't want to see the selectors lose patience with him.

Mushfiq shouldnt be vice-captain, he should be captain after 7-8 years..i think he will make our best captain ever, he was our most successful U-19 captain. He is very active in the field and inspires the team whrn tey are down..I really cant understand why Shakib is captain in a team which has Bashar, Shahriar and Aftab

Shakib to hold back spin
3-day practice game from today
Sports Reporter

Most of the Test probables have been drafted into the local side to adjust with the South African attack and team's captain Shakib Al Hasan made it known during the practice session yesterday that their main objective would be to occupy the crease for as long as possible.

"I will highly appreciate if someone could occupy the crease for a whole day. Our intention is very clear: to spend time in the middle as much as we can to get accustomed to the South African bowlers before the first Test," said all-rounder Shakib.

The pitch at Fatullah is believed to be friendly to batsmen because of its even bounce, different to the Mirpur surface where the first Test of the two-match series will start from February 22.

Injured opener Tamim Iqbal has been drafted into the squad at the last moment but the left-hander has a bleak chance to play the match while former national skipper Habibul Bashar was also ruled out due to a minor thumb injury during practice.

Under Siddons's new training method, Tigers have had mostly concentrated on match practice for the last few days and the young left-hander believes that the warm-up match gave them an opportunity to look at their improvement.

"We played a number of matches during practice which will definitely help us," he said. BCB XI will field 12 players and lanky pacer Talha Jubair may miss the game.

Shakib also expressed his desire not to expose his spinners too much to the South African batsmen during the match as it is expected that the spinners will get the advantage in the series, especially in Mirpur where the slow and low bounce could be a big factor for the visitors.

"We have only two spinners -- Enamul Haque and myself -- in the team and we will definitely try to use spin bowling as less as we can," he added.

South African coach Mickey Arthur however said that they will try their best to capitalise on the warm-up game to acclimatise with the condition before the start of the first Test.

"We will try to utilise the game to the hilt. We have twelve players available right at the moment and all will play the match," said Arthur.

Graeme Smith's team came to Dhaka on Thursday without batsman Neil McKenzie and left-arm spinner Robbie Peterson. The pair will join the team on Wednesday.

The South African coach was not too concerned with the sub-continent conditions. "I never expect bouncy pitches here. We are prepared to play in low and slow wickets," he said.

Arthur said that his side will miss slow left-arm spinner Paul Harris, who already showed his character to become a match-winning spinner for his side.

"Definitely we will miss him (Harris) but we have (off-spinner) Johan Botha," he said.

Not an expert in this area. But I think the gloves are to give the players a better practice. Since gloves are typically slippery, players need to be extra-cautious. If that's the reason, I think that's a pretty good approach :up:

because he's not playing in this warm-up game. I guess they had to leave out atleast the captain and vice-cap (Mash), or it wouldn't pass as the BCB XI, rather it would be the full Bangladesh national team.

He is the only performer in those lot in recent practice matches (add Rajin to that list also). Only performers can get the perks. I say a good way to reward players. Non-performers, get in line to be treated as you should be, 'nobody'.

Performance should be the #1 criteria on who should be the leader. Senior-Junior latthi mar.

Proteas to take on BCB XI in tour opener Sunday

Dhaka, Feb 16 (bdnews24.com) - Visiting South Africa begin their month-long tour of Bangladesh taking on a strong Bangladesh Cricket Board XI in the lone warm-up three-day match at Narayanganj Osmani Stadium Sunday.

Both teams will look to some batting practice ahead of two- Tests series between the Proteas and the Tigers with the BCB naming a strong warm-up squad comprising 13 test caps out of 15 members.

But, no side has yet finalised their playing eleven, though Shakib Al Hasan will lead the home side.

The Proteas will certainly look to cope with the subcontinent conditions and familiarise themselves with the slow and low wicket, on which Bangladesh plan to restrict them.

South African coach Mickey Arthur said that his boys were concentrating on the three-dayer as they did not hope to get a bouncy wicket in the subcontinent.

South Africa captain Graeme Smith, however, said that they had no wicket worry and they were much comfortable to play spin, especially in the longer version matches.

The Proteas, however, get a little chance to play the spinner as the BCB XI has just included one specialist spinner, Enamul Haq Junior, on the warm-up side.

BCB XI captain Shakib Al Hasan takes the match as a preparation for the batsmen ahead of the first Test, scheduled Feb 22-26 at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

"It is a great chance for the players to have batting practice in the match as most of the warm-up squad players are also on the national side," said Shakib.

"Our main concentration is to improve our batting performance and stick to the middle whether runs come or not," said the left-handed batsman.

Warm-up squad: Shakib Al Hasan (captain), Tamim Iqbal, Zunaed Siddique, Shahriar Nafees, Nazim Uddin, Rajin Saleh, Aftab Ahmed, Mushfiqur Rahim (vice Captain), Enamul Haque Jr, Sajedul Islam, Talha Jubaer, Farhad Reza, Syed Rasel, Roqibul Hassan and Habibul Bashar.

South Africa squad: Graeme Smith, Ashwell Prince, Hashim Amla, Johan Botha, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, Jean-Paul Duminy, Jacques Kallis, Neil McKenzie, Morne Morkel, Andre Nel, Makhaya Ntini, Robin Peterson and Dale Steyn.

Fatullah is not in Dhaka. It is in Narayangonj. We have a very few international stadium in our country as oposed to other countries in the world. People abroad would think we have all the stadiums just only in Dhaka which isn't a good thing. That's why it is important to introduce a statudium with correct city name.

Well they think Pace is everything. They think a bowler must bowl faster to be in the Test team.. But line & lenght and wickets are sometimes nothing..

I would always pick Rasel over Shahadat in all form of cricket. He's our only wicket taking bowler. Yes He's much much better than Mashrafe.

very true. He is very new to this and I think he needs another year or two to actually be consistent with his line and length. He is one of few bowlers in BD who can actually swing the ball a great deal.

Dhaka, Feb 17 (bdnews24.com) – Visitors South Africa recovered their initial setback to make 129 for two at lunch on the first day of the lone warm-up three-dayer against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI at Narayanganj Osmani Stadium Sunday.

Hashim Amla remained unbeaten on stroke-filled 71 while Jacques Kallis on 33.

Amla smashed 12 fours while Kallis hammered six fours and one six.

Left-handed pacer Syed Rasel struck double blows to give the hosts a fine start after South Africa skipper Graeme Smith opted to bat first winning the toss.

Amla and Kallis denied further damage to put on 94 for the unbroken third wicket before the poor fielding allowed Kallis to survive twice.

Kallis first survived on naught when wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim could just touch a Kallis edgy stroke off Rasel delivery jumping to his right while Junaed Siddique dropped Kallis at the first slip off Enamul Haq Junior on 17.

Rasel first trapped Smith (2) lbw, leaving the visitors at five for one, and then had Jean-Paul Duminy (17) caught by wicketkeeper to reduce them to 35 for two.

Of 129 runs, South Africa amassed 90 runs from boundaries.

Rasel has been the economy bowler, giving away 22 runs for two wickets in eight overs while Sajedul Islam conceded 45 runs in seven overs.

I guess not... I remember Zunaied took a good low catch at first slip during the New Zeland series. But I also remember that he dropped a few chances there and he dropped a chance today.

Slip offerings are extremely rare for the Bangladesh team, so it's important to hold on to the few chances they get, especially when its against players like Kallis, because he'll probably make you pay dearly for it.

February 17, 2008, 02:33 AM
Get used to seeing dropped catches,, especially by our wicketkeeper. We just cant expect that Mushfique will be catching like a regular wicketkeeper. And we were always poor in slip catching,, so, we might as well just get used to it. Doesnt seem like SA will have much trouble against our bowling either..Fun awaits!!

mshakir56
February 17, 2008, 02:33 AM
Look at Skaibs bowling figure and Enamul's bowling figure, and you decide who is the better bowler. I never thought Enamul is good enough to be in our test squad. Sakib and Rafique are good enough for our test squad, and if we need another spinner then we should pick Razzak !

Sakib: 6-2-8-0 @ 1.33
Enamul: 7-0-32-0 @ 4.57

Enamul must not be picked for test squad !

Look at Skaibs bowling figure and Enamul's bowling figure, and you decide who is the better bowler. I never thought Enamul is good enough to be in our test squad. Sakib and Rafique are good enough for our test squad, and if we need another spinner then we should pick Razzak !

Sakib: 6-2-8-0 @ 1.33
Enamul: 7-0-32-0 @ 4.57

Enamul must not be picked for test squad !

Zuniad dropped Kallis Catch of Enam ... Test Cricket is about wickets not chocking off runs

How do you plan to take wickets if you don't put the batsman underpressure. If you are giving 4-5 runs an over in a test match, that means the batsman are not under any sort of pressure. So they are less likely to play a rash shot ! I mean this is basic thinking ! You should be aware of it !

Well 3 pacers consisting of Mashrafe, Shahadat and Rasel doesn't sound that bad, along with Rafique and Shakib as the spin options.

But if we plan to have slow dead pitches for the spinners, carrying 3 pacers won't do much good I think.

But if Rasel performs well here, It will be interesting to see how many pacers get picked for the Test squand. And if we only carry 2 pacers, which one of the top 3 gets dropped.

I think 2 fast bowlers + 2 spinners might be enough ! We should pick more batsman, which will improve our chances of getting a draw !
Mashrafee + Rasel + Rafique + Sakib should be enoug as far as bowling is concerned !

Thanks for the update Chinaman. Enam got 2 wicket. I hope he got Kallis and Amla.

:lol: Back in the day Chinaman would probably ban you for mistaking him for me, but yeah Enam got Kallis and Alma and Juniad got a slip catch

Dhaka, Feb 17 (bdnews24.com) – Hashim Amla struck his 18th first-class century as visitors South Africa recovered following the initial dent to make 231 for five at tea on the first day of the lone warm-up three-dayer against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI at Narayanganj Osmani Stadium Sunday.

AB de Villiers remained unbeaten on 25 while Mark Boucher bagged three runs.

Left-arm spinner Enamul Haq Junior made the breakthrough soon after lunch for the home side removing Jacques Kallis, who gave a catch to Farhad Reza at mid-on for 36.

Amla then followed Kallis to leave the side at 169 for four, but not before the right-handed batsman played a stroke-filled innings. Together, they took South Africa to 159 for three from a precarious 35 for two.

Amla drove Enamul for a four to reach his hundred off 112 balls before the one-down batsman was caught by Junaed Siddique at first slip-off Enamul for 103 studded with 18 boundaries.

Ashwell Prince assaulted medium pacer Aftab Ahmed sending him twice over the wildish mid wicket before giving a return catch to the same bowler in the same over for 32.

South Africa added 102 runs losing three wickets in the second session after resuming at 129 for two at lunch.

Earlier, Left-handed pacer Syed Rasel struck double blows to give the hosts a fine start after South Africa skipper Graeme Smith opted to bat first winning the toss.

Amla and Kallis denied further damage to put on 94 for the unbroken third wicket before the poor fielding allowed Kallis to survive twice.

Kallis first survived on naught when wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim could just touch a Kallis edgy stroke off Rasel delivery jumping to his right while Junaed Siddique dropped Kallis at the first slip off Enamul Haq Junior on 17.

Rasel first trapped Smith (2) lbw, leaving the visitors at five for one, and then had Jean-Paul Duminy (17) caught by wicketkeeper to reduce them to 35 for two.

Rasel and Enamul took two wickets for 53 and 63 while Aftab grabbed one for 24.

Get used to seeing dropped catches,, especially by our wicketkeeper. We just cant expect that Mushfique will be catching like a regular wicketkeeper.

This first day scoring by SA shows that they can bat well under any condition, so BD has to bat very well also.

Im quite satisfied with the day's play.
They might have scored 329 but we've also got 8 wickets.

Clearly shows their discomfort in playing our condition ( only judging by score), plus two of our best bowlers didnt bowl today. Mash and Rafiq.

I'm starting to believe that Rafiq would be a vital factor against them. His experience with the wrist spin could really undo the Saffers.

Hope Enamul didnt bowl his special deliveries (duusra,wrong one etc if he have any).
He should hold back a little for the main stage.

Yup, bowling was fine. But this is the first time they are batting against our bowlers in our condition, so expect better show from them in the real game. I just hope our batsmen show some spine during the practices matches and the real games.

And yes, Rafique does not have any wrist spin experience. :) He is a SLA and SLAs are finger spinners. Wrist spin SLAs are called chinaman, and usually righ handed wrist spinners are leg spinners, and right handed finger spinners are off spinner. Correct me if I am wrong.

It pretty much an omen to let us know that SA will not struggle at this type of wicket or team,, if they can score 320+ in a day against almost the national team,,, it would be the same on D-Day. So, we need to be more vigilant in terms of catching, fielding,, those will be the match winners as SA will give away very little opportunities. Tomorrow will be the real test when we see how our batsman fair against their bowling..

Enamul I think is just not in touch. He needs a break and consultation with senior spinners and coach. After the poor showing in NZ, I am sure his confidence is pretty low.

Mash is another bowler who I think needs a break badly. If you watched him bowling in NZ then you could notice he used to get tired in every other bowler and his facial and body expression tells you that he is not 100% fit. It is a big dilemma if we can afford to rest him in SA series. I would like to play him, but I would not like to injure him again, and I want a Mashrafe who is 100% fit and can give his 100% in the game. If he does not give his 100% then he may get thrashed and eventually will lose his confidence. I would not want a Mashrafe who is low in confidence.

I would have to disagree with you there and I think that SA can struggle against our bowling. We were missing three of our main bowlers in Mash, Rajib and Rafique for this match, and we restricrted the Saffers to 328 for 8 wickets. I think we can take some positives in our bowling from this day for sure.

True that we didnt have the front line bowler,, Mashrafee, Rafique, Rajib but I think..they way SA scored runs its pretty evident that they are comfortable playing in this type of wicket. Thats what I said,, the wicket is not going to threaten SAs. Also,if we miss catches, misfield as we did today,, it will become another NZ story. Credit goes to our bowlers but this is a practice match,, and the primary bowlers, Rasel, Enamul, Sakib, Farhad proved that they are still in rythem. So are the SAs playing against them..

Murad
February 17, 2008, 12:55 PM
Only Hashim Amla made the difference.

Kallis couldn't score freely.. And was dropped once for 0 by Mushfique off Enamul.

Plus they are also playing 12 players. 8 batsmen. 4 bowlers. If it was a real match they would've been allout long before despite the dropped catches.

320 may seem a lot of runs on the first day, but, in such wkts, its actually the norm. We have taken eight wkts. That is good. We could have easily been 320 for 4 or worse. Need to get them out quickly tomorrow and make sure Boucher doesn't continue. They will probably declare before we get them all out.

Upcoming test selection is going to be a tricky one. It will be interesting to see who sits out in the final combination. Some players are making it difficult for incumbents. It's a good problem to have. The upcoming innings is vital for Aftab.

Captain Sakib only bowled 11overs !! Not sure how should I go about reading that situation.

haka, Feb 17 (bdnews24.com) – Hashim Amla struck his 18th first-class century as visitors South Africa recovered following the initial dent to make 231 for five at tea on the first day of the lone warm-up three-dayer against the Bangladesh Cricket Board XI at Narayanganj Osmani Stadium Sunday.


Where is haka..LOL

Good bowling by Farhad,
Again bad WKeeeping by the Golden Boy - hope he compensates with the bat.
Rasel really struggles as the ball looses shine.

320 may seem a lot of runs on the first day, but, in such wkts, its actually the norm. We have taken eight wkts. That is good. We could have easily been 320 for 4 or worse. Need to get them out quickly tomorrow and make sure Boucher doesn't continue. They will probably declare before we get them all out.

Upcoming test selection is going to be a tricky one. It will be interesting to see who sits out in the final combination. Some players are making it difficult for incumbents. It's a good problem to have. The upcoming innings is vital for Aftab.

Captain Sakib only bowled 11overs !! Not sure how should I go about reading that situation.

as recently as a few weeks ago, i thought it was criminal to leave aftab out of any XI simply because of his talent and potential.

but now, i am accepting that he has absolutely no idea how to play test cricket - or at least he has forgotten. i think aftab can be left out in place of a guy like farhad to come in at 6 or 7, and bowl a couple of spells with decent pace in 130 ks.

i still have no doubts about aftab's potential, and i am reasonable confident he will come through since his debut season showed a lot more poise and sensibility than he does now.

***

it is very good to see us taking 8 wickets of a full strenght saffer side with our main 3 strike bowlers sitting out (rajib, rafique, and mash). this inspires a lot of confidence in our bowling job for the upcoming series.

batting is still the weakness, and i expect our bats to get shot out under 250 against the likes of steyn and co. god almighty, i hope i am wrong.

main thing is our batsman need to see what steyn likes to do and respect him. according to my WEIR ratings, steyn is the highest rated bowler of all time (his career is young lets see if he can maintain it), so respecting him nearly to the point of idol worship is not at all problematic, IMHO. if steyn is milked for only 2 an over, but doesn't get wickets it will frustrate the youngster, and i think that should be our approach.

guys like tamim, ashraful, and aftab (if he plays in the Tests) will always be skilled enough to attack steyn. everyone else should respect him.

The most frustrating part for the home team was their poor fielding in the first session as they not only failed to stop the ball but also dropped three catches. Wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim was the chief culprit as he dropped Jacques Kallis on naught off Rasel :lol:while Rajin Saleh failed to clutch Duminy off Sajidul Islam.

Kallis, who made 36 off 88 balls with the help of six fours and a six, survived on another occasion when he was on 17 as Zunaed Siddiqui grassed one at slip off left-arm spinner Enamul Haque, who ultimately managed to get rid of the right-hander.

Rasel, who had missed the entire New Zealand series because of his dislocated shoulder, however said that there was no scope to be disappointed with the ordinary fielding in the first session.

"It's part of the game. I rather want to focus on our bowling effort. We might have conceded too many runs in the end but you also have to consider the fast outfield here. I think our overall bowling performance was good and I am happy that I made a successful return after injury," said the left-arm pacer.

Daily Star (http://www.thedailystar.net/story.php?nid=23839)

The successful batsman Amla, who struck 18 sweetly-timed boundaries including some eye-catching back-foot drives during his 120-ball 103, also admitted that it was not easy for them to bat once the slow bowlers came into action.

"It was nice that most of our top order batsmen got some runs in the first match of the tour and what I must say is that our purpose was served on the first day. But I must agree that it was not easy for us to bat against the slow bowlers," said the 24-year-old batsman, who is the first South African of Indian descent to reach the national squad.

Rasel is delusional, without fielding help a bowler will be living in Wonderland. Not every ball hits the pad in front of the wicket or troubles the bells.

This report is the pathetic example of typical attitude of a BD player towards a game (its SA, the no 2 team and its a FC game also). Accept the truth. You had them but again you missed a chance to reduce the run by about 100 less. Determination to change the approach towards "Making it happen" needs to be stamped into their subconcious. :mad:

Practice matches can have any results, and their results shouldn't be taken too harshly. Specially, for the visiting team.

Out of this match, I'ld take nothing away from the SA team. They're trying to adjust, and everyone knows about their capabilities. Yes, they may be weaker against spin, but that's not to say that this will keep us on top of the game.

Overall, I would say that the home team did play well (only based on the score and all, never got to follow it). But I do think that there's way too many errors that we need to fix.

I think the selectors should go with Mashrafee, Rasel, Rafique, Sakib, Farhad reza as bowling combo ! Rest of the lineup should be pure batsman to bolster our batting line up !


not a bad idea. farhad reza and sakib are both allrounder. that will give us some option to play an extra bowler or batsmen. our main problem is batting, hope we will progress in that department soon. If farhad reza plays, I think the line up will be

Tamim
Junaed
bashar
ashraful
sakib
rajin/Aftab
mushfiq
farhad
rafiq
mashrafe
rasel

not a bad line up, batting wise and bowling wise

Rafiq and enam will get the chance IMO

Its all depending on how Both Farhad and Aftabls batting performance.

If Aftab fails then Reza will get the chance.

Rafiq and Enam will be in the bowling line up without any doubt.

February 17, 2008, 11:37 PM
Aftab is not a test cricketer. He used to be, but after 2005, he has shown no patience to stay at the crease. I think Reza should really be given chance.

I think they should rather rest Tamim and not risk the entire series. We need tamim for the ODIs for sure. Also, having him watch the match from the stands might make him eager to perform when he retuns.. Although he is not the bottleneck rather he is the lone perfomer these days.. the true "Golden Boy" ( dont want to start again,,btw)

cleaning up the tail is sometimes one of the hardest things in cricket, we once let Glen mcgrath score a half century and you let chris martin score double figures
Dude, we let Gillespie score 200. This is a lot better in comparison, although we should really have kept them to the low 300's.

Hope this match was taped and forwarded to Siddons. The footage would be very useful to tackle both Amla and Boucher in the actual match.

Siddons himself is overlooking this BCB XI as the team's coach in this match, and it'd be natural for him to be at the ground and have a first-hand look at things. And there'd be plenty of videos of Boucher and Amla from their international career so far if Nashu and our team management actually decides to put them in use :)

Pathetic updating from Tigercricket, really a pity that they cant even update scores when the match is in bd itself. Official site... yeah rite!

384 all out is not bad from BD perspective, but offcourse could have been better.

The dismal picture of BD cricket is generally for our batting. Now let's see, if our batting can build up a repspectable figure.

Good to know. I think Amla has a natural weakness against spin as he was an easy prey for Muralitharan in Srilanka tour. He was also heavily troubled by pace of Asif and Akhtar in Pak. Harbhi once bundled him out. Looking to his stats its a mix and match and as from cricnfo "with serious questions emerging about his technique as he mustered 36 runs in four innings against England later that season." may be this tour can become a key factor for his career.

2008 is so far the second best year for Boucher with the bat as he is averaging a high 59.0 after a blasting 1999 average of 68.42. Boucher is always good in Sub continent, a natural talent.

Apart from Smith and Kallis these two needs a special observation from BD camp to save the embarrasments that we are all willing to avoid.
