I think this series together with the August/sept ODIs in Australia will be a key test of the Ash/siddons combo...

hey they actually have a 3 dayer practice, its more than we usually get on a short tour. anyways, if sreesanth did well on SA pitches, i can't wait to see shahadat who ripped saffers on the "fast , green and bouncy" tracks of bangladesh.

I can still remember BD first tour (no international match were played just played against provincial team) one of the match BD was allout 52. Later that tour we were having chat with Golla bhai (once upon a time I had good relationship with him, he is a very decent person) and I said to Golla bhai thst ur that innings of 52 was amazing. And then we all lol, he said whenever BD batsmen went for a forward defensive shoot as soon the front foot was there n the ball was at rib cage area. There was grassy fast track.

It will be kind of same again. Total smashing performance by SA and some notable performance 1/2 innings by our batters or 1/2 spells by our bowlers.

So we should not raise our point of 'han tan' rather we should prepare for the bashing by SA fast bowlers. Remember the 66(or maybe 64) allout couple of tours back.

SA is a tough soil for any sub-continent team. When you would have 'talented' but yet to have the guts to perform sort of players ... just think about the reality..

WHAT HAPPENED TO PRACTICE MATCHES ? HOW D0 WE NEGOTIATE TORMENTOR STEYN ? IS SIDDONS GOING TO DO SOME HOME WORK ON GAME PLAN ?

I do not think Bangladesh will fare that bad in South Africa as they will have negotiated the full fury of Cricket Super heavyweights Australia in their own den.

The only problem is that all matches that Bangladesh plays Aussies will be at the same place - Darwin whose nature of pitch is unknown.

However no matter whatever exposure we have Down Under when the moment of truth comes i.e. facing Steyn it will be the same old story.

Unless he is unfit and unavailable for playing Bangladesh has no respite.

Steyn is not just destroyer of BD. He has single handedly destroyed almost all the top batsmen of the world .

Siddons needs to do a lot of homework to chalk out in advance a game plan to negotiate Steyn.

The other thing to note is that there is no practice matches -Yet another fallacy of BCB.

We need at least 3 practice matches - 2 for the One Dayers and one for 20- 20 match as a preparation for our batsmen to get some understanding and adaptation of the pitches.

Siddons should strongly recommend BCB to negotiate with their counterparts United Cricket Board of South Africa to arrange for the practice matches otherwise by the time they come to terms with South African pitch conditions the series will be over.

Every cloud has Silver linings. But We have been seeing too many clouds- Defeats only. No victories. Are we going to see any silver lining?

My earnest request to Siddons. Ask your boys to pull up the socks and go for the kill.

Our Tigress Sisters has proved that if you have the right attitude, commitment and good leadership you can do wonders. We do not want to hear positives and negatives from either the Captain or Coach. We want Results ! Victories !

11 days rest in the whole tour while playing 17 days. Very short tour and very compacted. BD will get whitewashed for sure but lets hope for some good individual performances and improvement by all the players.

Siddons: Actually our boy's are not accustomed in playing 140 kph bowling and in bouncy pitches like that of South Africa. So, we need more time.

This tour will take place a month after Eid-ul-Fitr. Although Ramadan is supposed to be a month of self restrain, we can take it for granted that players will indulge in gluttonous meals during Iftar and Sahur (as most of the well-to-do Muslims do nowadays). The coaching staff will have hard time getting the players in shape for this tour.

I think this is a common misconception. Most of the national players dont really induldge into that kind of feasting as much as we think they do. I recall Mashrafee mentioning this that he doesnt eat anything that is not suggested by the physio, Rajin Saleh is another player who trained hard.. I believe most of the players have strict guidlines on what they can/cannot eat/drink during off-season. They are contracted players..And this is not the first time Bangladesh will play after/during the Ramadan.. Keep in mind that the players must pass the fitness test before being included in the national team.. So dont over-think that the players are idiving into Jilabi/Haleem/Peyaju etc. Leave that for the Akram/Bulbul generation

Then a two day warmup match. (this has been changed from a three day match)

Zaved bhai, you are really a true fan of Shuvo, I know he is a great prospect for the national team, but making his debut in a country like SA will just mean another ruined BD player. Even the big guns get their goings tough there and a young guy like him... I better not mention. We have lost many of the bright prospects like him by taking them in the national at such a young age and I just don't wanna see that happening with him.

Johannesburg, Nov 2 (bdnews24.com) - The Bangladesh cricket team reached South African shores virtually unnoticed on Sunday after completing a 16-hour journey for a challenging month-long tour.

Two Bangladesh High Commission officials and a Cricket South Africa staff were present at the Oliver Tambo Airport to receive the Tigers who landed at 8:35am local time (12:35pm BST) and there was no media in attendance, according to a story filed by tigercricket.com, the official website of the Bangladesh Cricket Board.



As the players came out of the terminal the odd clap and 'welcome to South Africa' chants from locals in the waiting area was the closest to a sporting reception for he tourists who headed straight for the team hotel, the Palazzo Montecasino. However, the coach ride, which would normally take 40 minutes at most lasted two hours due to a traffic jam.

With no training scheduled for the day the squad completed lunch inside the sprawling Montecasino entertainment complex adjacent to the hotel before settling in. Montecasino is a major recreational centre in Johannesburg and boasts the biggest movie screen in Africa called the "Il Grande". It also has a casino and a skate park, restaurants, a 135 meter high baloon ride and a birds sanctuary. Built to look like an old Italian castle the complex even has a fascinating artificial sky inside.

The Bangladesh side will get their preparation going tomorrow when they train at the Wanderers in the morning. There is gym and swimming scheduled for the afternoon. The weather has been a sunny and comfortable mid-20 degrees here. The tour gets underway on Wednesday with a T20 international against the hosts.

Bangladesh captain Mohammed Ashrafal said on Tuesday that his team was buoyed by their recent good performance against New Zealand,and were looking to play their best against South Africa.

Speaking ahead of the Standard Bank Pro20 match at the Wanderers on Wednesday evening, Ashrafal was unperturbed by the loss of a large number of Bangladesh players to the Indian Cricket League (ICL), which left him with a very inexperienced side.

"The ones who went to the ICL were not superstars. We're not missing them".

South Africans are bit worried of ranking position


South Africa faces a tough challenge to retain its second place in the Reliance Mobile ICC ODI Championship table as it hosts Bangladesh in a three-match ODI series starting in Potchefstroom from tomorrow. The Proteas currently sit in second place on 118 ratings points and to maintain that position, they will have to win the series 3-0.

As South Africa enters the series leading Bangladesh by 71 rating points, it is expected to win convincingly and so failure to win all the ODIs would cost it heavily. Defeat in one match would cost it two ratings points and would drop it to 116 and third place behind England when the ratings are calculated beyond the decimal point.

If Bangladesh wins the series 2-1, South Africa will slip to 112 ratings points and fifth in the championship table behind Australia, England, New Zealand and India, and just ahead of sixth-placed Pakistan who are going head to head with the West Indies in a three-match ODI series in Abu Dhabi from next Wednesday.
