I guess wrapping them up under 300 is not possible.

In Cricinfo under a picture of Nasser Hussain it states "Nasser Hussain closes in on a hundred on the second day at Chittagong".. that should really be reworded to - closes in at a SNAILS PACE on a hundred..

Man, I forgot how boring test matches can get. Thanks Nasser, u boring goose!

Wish we could bat this slow... than we would have had a chance... by the way the way, this is the most boring test in Bangladesh's history... absoulutly no action

It looks like Masri will finally get his 5 for today. :)

October 30, 2003, 01:59 AM
He is trying hard... his stats are looking better today.:cool:

Johnson is gone, finally one for Mushfiq. It took England 8 overs and 1 wicket to score the last 8 runs. That's some tight bowling & fielding. So much for England's "Lengthy Tail".:love:

October 30, 2003

Mohammad Rafique, Bangladesh's left-arm spinner, has been hauled up by Wasim Raja, the match referee for the second Test at Chittagong, for showing excessive aggression excessive aggression during the first day's play,

After bowling Mark Butcher, Rafique was clearly seen on television pictures to point him towards the dressing-room.

The Bangladesh team management has been informed of Raja's observation, and the hearing will take place at 5pm today.

Wats this about... a lot of bowlers show batsman 'the way to the dressing room' when they get out. This is the 1st time i've heard someone getting in trouble for it... this is so unfair!

I have a feeling this is Javed's day.
Get ready for slow batting soon. :)

October 30, 2003, 02:25 AM
i hope he can do it... but i fear not!

Genuine stuff. Mop up the tail. 340 and that's it.

2 LBW decisions our way. Tide is definetely turning. Good job to finish off a lacklustre batting performance by England. I say we have a chance! Our batsmen could take al eaf from them, just go slow.:D

October 30, 2003, 02:34 AM
326... if we can bat slooowwwwlyyy we may get a draw... Whatmore must tell the Tigers to bat slowly like the poms... but not fall appart like 'em!!!

October 30, 2003, 02:41 AM
Naah...I would go for positive cricket...we have good attacking batsmen...and then we have Javed! everyone should play their game...just be sensible...but be positive....thats the way to go...play only to win...

October 30, 2003, 02:43 AM
but that way we always get out quickly

" The players are in the middle.
Bangladesh are about to start their first innings.
Javed Omar and Hanan Sarkar are the Bangladesh opening batsmen
The opening overs will be very crucial.
Hoggard to bowl to Hannan Sarkar"

OK re: the above comments, what do you reckon as the no. of opening overs to see off these bowlers.

October 30, 2003, 02:52 AM
'bout 10 normally.

October 30, 2003, 02:58 AM
6/1... omar gone... i knew we should have played more slowly :(

October 30, 2003, 03:01 AM
