View Full Version : 350 is the minimum - SA wont fail again, we need to bat full day

Hope our batsmen dont think 270 is enough since it wont be. This is the best chance to beat SA and confirm our status as a growing superpower.

However our batsmen need to bat for long duration. This way they will not only score runs but there will be more wear and tear on the pitch.

thats not realistic

i hope they can make the lead atleast 300. that would be good scores to defend.

Though we need a good score to have a chance against the Saffers but I wouldn't worry about it now. The main thing would be to stay on the crease as long as possible without getting out. The runs will keep on coming and it will also give us the advantage over the pitch!!

don't make promises you can't keep, do what you can, can what you do...go give your best...

February 23, 2008, 07:36 PM
Yeah I also think 300 should be the target... We should actually try to bat as long as we can until mushfique... the moment we are down to 7, no matter what the score is, I think we need to blast our way to as much runs as we can.

<b>Here's how it goes in terms of odds by NahazBet. For a lead of:
150-179 $4.80 for Bangladesh to win
180-199 $3.50
200-229 $2.60
230-254 $2.10
255-269 $1.70
270-284 $1.45
285-300 $1.30
300-330 $1.10
330+ $1.01

So yes, I give them a good fighting chance with a lead above 230. Once they go a bit above 250 SA would be very nervous. Above 300 SA hardly has any chance. Now two factor to consider.1.would Smith and Kallis click this time? 2. Who can win against their nervousness?Don't forget we have to get a good lead first andfor that a lot of ppl have to do their duties. Not too hard to score another 130-150 with 6 wickets remaining.

250 should be perfectly defendable on this pitch.

Having said that, I am assuming similar bowling performances by our bowlers.

das too much for the rest of the order,
u guyz failed to realised we already lost our best batsmen tamim,nafees,ash, n da usedless pathetic buddha haba

350 is too far, we need to secure 200-250 lead first and bat another 50 overs at least.....
