The ‘2’ effect and our 2<sup>nd</sup> win in tests!!<o:p></o:p>
I am not a numerologist. But it’s quite unique how number “2” has deep effect in the proceedings of this test match. How?
<o:p></o:p>
Shahadat Hossain has got his 2<sup>nd</sup> five-wicket haul in test match.
Shahadat’s 6 wkt is the 2<sup>nd</sup> instance for a <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region> pacer after Manjural Islam.
Shahadat is the 2<sup>nd</sup> bowler to get five-for in this match after M. Morkel.
Junaid has got his 2<sup>nd</sup> fifty in test cricket in his 2<sup>nd</sup> series.
This is Jamie Siddons’ 2<sup>nd</sup> series as <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region> coach.
<st1:place>S. Africa</st1:place> is the 2<sup>nd</sup> ranked team in the world
The test is the tourists’ 2<sup>nd</sup> match in this tour
This is the 2<sup>nd</sup> time Ashwel Prince got run out against <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region>. Last time he experienced the same in the world cup. And we all know what happened in that match.
AB De Villers got out off a ball that bounced twice!
The match started on 22<sup>nd</sup> February. February is the 2<sup>nd</sup> month of the year.<o:p></o:p>
2 of our batsmen (Tamim & Habibul) got out on 2 in our 2<sup>nd</sup> innings.
This is the 2<sup>nd</sup> time <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region> got 1<sup>st</sup> innings lead against leading cricketing nation on home soil.
<st1:place>S. Africa</st1:place> is the 2<sup>nd</sup> African nation to have conceded 1<sup>st</sup> innings lead to <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region>.
This is the 2<sup>nd</sup> test in our Home of Cricket – Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.
This is <st1:place>S. Africa</st1:place>’s 2<sup>nd</sup> tour (Test tour) to <st1:country-region><st1:place>Bangladesh</st1:place></st1:country-region>.
Tomorrow the Senior and Junior teams of BOTH countries will be facing each other in 2 different venues.
Current match is Md. Rafique’s 2<sup>nd</sup> last test in his career.
What is our 1<sup>st</sup> innings lead? 22 runs!<o:p></o:p>
<o:p></o:p>
So? Is it going to be our 2<sup>nd</sup> win in test cricket? 2<sup>nd</sup> on home soil? Dreaming a bit further… 2<sup>nd</sup> Series Win?<o:p></o:p>

really cool, the only thing is that hold your horses for the 2nd win.

knowing our team, we can just see a collapse in the morning and game end by the end of the day with SA still having 8 wickets in hand.

game is in balance thats all. just a friendly reminder so that you do not get heart broken.

true that bangladesh cricket team has left us heart broken on umpteenth occassions. but this is the time when i dare to forget everything else. i dare to dream - risking even worse heart break. but still... i wish to enjoy every bit of it...
i am an optimist to the core. who knows, after the last ball of this match has been bowled this thread would become more enjoyable!!!

Great post. It's my #480 post. If you add these 3 numbers you get 12. So, two is there too. Just for your info 3 is my lucky number (1+2). 480 has three numbers too. I am "feeling lucky".

To job Jisaan. You may add one more.
If you beat Saffers this will be the 2nd win against them in international stage

We had two good days from both (2) teams. Normally, this is the extent of our run...

So, get ready for a double (2) heartbreak tonight people. This could be a double-barrel curse..

Rifat
February 23, 2008, 03:52 PM
we always forget to thank ALLAH... in the times when we should the most. that's why our team is always demoralized even when the odds are for us, not against us.

22 factor is just a mere coincidence, it is kind of like that "19" thing.

ALHAMDULILLAHI RABBIL ALAMIN, may Bangladesh continue to play positive cricket.

Rifat
February 23, 2008, 03:54 PM
good insights anyways jisaan, are we like a number driven cricket force, like we have to win our "100th match" "150th match", which we have, but just a coincidence only.ALHAMDULILLAH, never be ashamed to go back to the root cause of our success and thank ALLAH... for everything

Hey man ..India is the second best team (ICC ranking) ...we fought hard to get it man..dont discount it;)

I'll have a tough time today watching both the matches today..BD vs SA or India-vs Aus.
May be I'll toss ..but I would definitely want to watch the celebrations on the field when the match is over.I've feeling it will be done today.i cant see SA standing against Rafique on a crumbling pitch.

However SA is not the 2nd ranked team anymore. They are now 4th.

I take exception to the statement. oh my god, i didn't realise that we are no. 2 :D

Please change the above statement to:

S. Africa were the 2<SUP>nd</SUP> ranked team in the world :lol:

Well we have another sequel of 2

In the 2nd innings of Bangladesh

Tamim 2
Bashar 2
Mushfiq 2

They all failed 2nd consecutive times in this Test.

Now, does it increase our chance to win the 2nd Test ever?

So? Is it going to be our 2<sup>nd</sup> win in test cricket? 2<sup>nd</sup> on home soil? Dreaming a bit further… 2<sup>nd</sup> Series Win?<o:p></o:p>


it is my 2nd thread in this forum

And this must be a first hand lesson for everyone to "GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT BEFORE OPENING YOUR 2ND THREAD.

Usually visitors get accustomed to BD playing condition and bash BD in the second test heavily. Aussies faced it in Fatullah and then recovered in time to inflict an even bigger defeat on BD in Cht in the 2nd test. The challenge for BD would be to minimize the gap of defeat OR take the test to 4 long innings - that's all. I think that would be harder than what they have already done in the 1st test.

zainab
February 25, 2008, 09:14 AM
The second test will be a harder task for BD. SA is already used to local conditions. They already know what their mistakes are, and will try their best to rectify this, whereas BD does not learn from their mistakes.

I expect a harder fight from SA, unsure about BD because they always fall short, and do not know how to attack and fight.

Tigers_eye
February 25, 2008, 09:38 AM
good ones except the SA being second ranked team. They are the forth ranked team as of this moment with 108 points.
India (111) and SL (109) are ahead of them. Ofcourse Australia (141) is miles ahead.

As for #2, I don't care of any #2s. Being #1 that is all it matters. Strive for #1 that is the message I will put forward.

February 25, 2008, 11:30 AM
Now the ultimate '2' effect:

THIS ENDED UP AS OUR 2nd HEARTBREAK!!!

Somebody in this forum has a signature like this:

1) WIN or 2) LOSS, i am with bangladesh.
that is my very own 02 effect.


true, i sensed a sensational win. but, unfortunately, that didn't materialize. anyways, thanks everybody for your contribution in the thread.

Went to 2nd st and sat on the second row of the movie theater and watched the movie twice and had 2 hotdogs. By the way, my birthday is the 2nd day of July, which is the 2nd month of summer in NY.. and I live in qns which is the second biggest borough next to Brooklyn. The # 2 is making me insane... its everywhere... I have 2 arms, 2 legs, 2 ears, 2 eyes, 2 index fingers, 2 thumbs, 2 middle fingers..ohhhh my god... i am going "too" crazy.
