View Full Version : Home advantage or Host advantage?

February 29, 2008, 09:30 PM
We have played 53 test matches. Still we have not figure it out what kind of wicket will favor Bangladesh. here is an example....... we played a slow and low bouncy wicket in Mirpur and here we are in chittagong playing in a hard pitch surface which is really a batting paradise. We are playing 2 test matches in this series with 2 diffrent wicket. Right before SA came to Bangladesh, we were talking about taking the home advantage. Ashraful always says" SA is not use to play in a slow and turning wicket". we saw in GUYNA WI, how Bangladeshi player put SA in trouble during world cup because of the slow and turning wicket also in recent test match at Mirpur.
we know what SA"s problem so why making wicket which favor your opposition? Look at the result 405/0 after 1st day.
now here is the question
is SA batting lineup weaker than Bangladesh that we made a hard bating pitch wicket?

we know our batting lineup is not good, no matter what kind of pitch we make we score 200-300 so why not making the pitch slow and low bouncy which will at least help our bowlers and create trouble for South African's batsman.

Historically we've played our Best Cricket in the West Indies, we played well in the Busta Cup, World Cup and Our Tour of the West Indies. I'm tempted to say Pakistan as well since we had really good tour as well as played in there domestic league as well ... but i'll wait after we play a few more matches as well as Fatullah.

We shouldn't play any Test Match in CTG anymore.

WE should play all the Tests in Mirpur & Fatullah. Fatullah is the perfect one.

Bowlers are getting more turn this morning -perhaps the pitch is deceiving -let's see if the BD bowlers can capitalise.

Are these curators knowledgable about their own ground, or just dumb?

Yes, Ctg is proving to be a cursed ground. All sorts of record against us ( first Gillespie 201 and now 415).

But then again, its in Ctg where we won our so far only test win.

Koi je jai?
