after his 1st over vs Sewhag there wont be no more Shafi.

Rasel, Rajib, Nazmul came up the right way A Tours vs England, Zimbabwe, U-19's etc.

Rubel and Shafi have come up via the mashrafe way ... except they can't hold his jock strap. Masri was a 145K Beast and has learned to adapt to even be effective at 135.

I think the only changes we should make are probably in the pace department, dropping Shafi now would hurt his confidence, but keeping him in the team would hurt Bangladesh. I say bring in Rasel in Shafi's place.

kayees just made his highest innings in the last match
he was consistent though out DPL 20/20 and ODI---- and he was not looking bad yesterday. I think a 50 plus score is coming on the way.

though DPl and international is diff thing but i think kayes improved and he batted well though out his innings.
and no one will break a 50 plus partnership, do u guys know this is the highest opening partnership in last 10 matches.

Our pace attack is a real worry. No matter how our batsmen does or how many runs we score, I just don't see us putting up any fight without any service from the pace men. Gone are the days of Mash-Rasel giving us quality 20 overs ( with rasel finishing his on the trot ). They are a distant memory now. Its unfair to lay it on the new guys like Shafi and Rubel. They are years away from intl quality. But, we have nobody else to take the mantle. The revolving door of new pacers are reminiscent of the days of revolving openers in and out of the sqaud. We must set up a national pool of selected eight-ten potential quicks and give them all the support staff, training facility, coaches, physios, dietary guidance etc from RIGHT NOW..

The problem with our other pacers besides mash and rasel is that they lack control. Mash and rasel realized a long time ago that in international cricket, bowling smart and slightly slower with movement off the seam is more efficient than bowling easy to hit 135kmh "fast" deliveries that have no movement at all. Rubel and shafiul need to work on their accuracy, if they cannot bowl according to the field with their current pace, then they should go slower, but going slower is of course a short term strategy. Pacers like rubel, who have a natural talent for raw speed will have to learn how to control their line and length at 90mph one day. But its a shame to see shahadat lack control over his 125kmh deliveries, I don't think he will ever come back from this slump in form. I agree 100% with you about giving our younger pacers better facilities and coaches, this should help them avoid become someone like shahadat.

Why we are so intolerant? That was the first game of the boy and he didn't have any experienced partner with him. Why are you guys after the debutant? If we need experience in the pace side then Rubel has to be dropped to give Rasel the spot.

We need a good pacer; JS rightlly said in his Interview; "Some one forgot to teach them the variations"

Hope they get back Shahadat for this match, He is far superior a bowler than any of the other BD pacers at the moment. He has a lot of varieties and his bouncers or Yorkers could be very effective on these pitches.

I don't find any reason, why he wasn't played in the last match.

It should be mandatory for young pacers to watch McGrath video daily. Plus, they need to watch Lillie, Roberts, Marshall, etc., in the latter part of their careers. They all breathed fire in their younger days. However, they became even more effective when they lost their pace, by concentrating on accuracy, variation, and deception. It will take a while to get this point across, though.

Bowling wise ---> no more newbees --- i rather prefer shadat and rasel over those 2 (experience from before helps a bit i suppose) ... rajib leaks run but not like the way those 2 leaked runs! they lost us the match in 6 over man:hairpull:!

I think the next game is too big for our tournament chances to give Shafiul another shot....Rasel is definitely starting with rubel.

But i think Imrul is most likely getting another shot...although I'd rather like to see SN or even (like some suggested) Naeem opening with Tamim.

Any of you watched the Indian cricket movie "Iqbal?" If you have not, I would highly recommend this heart-warming movie. Our pacers need to practice like Iqbal, a deaf and mute. He practiced by putting a coin on the pitch and pitching on the coin. In the movie, he becomes India's most feared (and devious) fast bowler.

We have a weak bowling attack and i am doubtful to stand neck to neck against India.They have a very good batting lineup.I am not hopeful at all just coz our bowling (read fast bowling) su*** big time.We have only Sakib and Razzak who will bowl the full 10 overs and the rest (Rubel/Rasel/Shafiul/Riyad/Naeem) are there to complete the numbers.I say bring back Enamul (or even Shuvo).

I am missing Rafiq,Mortaza.
Just imagine our bowling attack: Mortaza,Rafiq,Sakib,Razzak

We could have been one of the better sides in ODI cricket with the likes of those missing bowlers and a good batting lineup of this tri nation cup.

We need a 3rd seamer for the game against india. I think we have too many spinners, given the type of wicket and the opposition we're facing.

Either rasel or shahadat should come in in addition to Shafiul and rubel. But that would mean dropping riyad, razzak or naeem. we need naeem and riyad for their batting and razzak is our most experienced (and effective) spinner. It's a tough call.

The only other alternative is to drop a riyad or naeem and bring aftab in on the proviso that he bowls 5 or 6 overs of military medium. Either way it's not ideal...

Aren't you overlooking that we don't have an effective pacer available? Since Mashrafe was injured and Rasel became ineffective, our spinners have been carrying our bowling.

I would, in fact, recommend dropping one pacer and bringing back Enamul. A much better option be unretiring Rafique, but that is too sensible for BCB to consider.

I still despise the forced retirement of Mohammad Rafique. Why he was forced to retire when he still can easily deliver 10 economical overs? Politics > Interest of the game and nation.

Totally agreed.

If BCB acts smart they can still bring back Rafique but thats not gonna happen.

Who's to say shahdat or rasel will be ineffective? They've not yet bowled in the series.

I certainly don't think yet another spinner is the answer. Of the two paltry wickets we took yesterday, neither fell to a spinner despite the fact that we had 4 spinners operating (5 if you include Ash's solitary over)!

Enamul is not in the squad, so I don't think a recall for him is likely. If the selectors are looking beyond the 15-man squad, there are certainly more options. Even Tapash or Reza could return...

I have always believed that a team should play with their best 4[or 5] bowlers, regardless of what is their specialty. And if we go with out best 5 bowlers, 4 of them at the moment will be spinners. And we need to realize that, if we dont play our best bowlers we cant win. Let India be the best team against spin, but if Raz/Shak keeps their line & length like they did against SL, I would prefer them over any pacer in our team.

India lost to SL in their 1st ODI- they will play with full caution and confidence. Do u guys remember India went nuts after losing to BD in the World Cup, they scored 400+ against Bermuda? How about 2004 when we beat them in Bongabondu stadium, dhaka? remember the following game they scored 300+ and beat us like we were u10 cricket team?

Positive: If they get over confidence they will try to hit 6 and 4 off every ball and our hybrid (tapash kumar + shahadat hossain) paceman Rubel might get few wickets...we may create a new history tomorrow!!!

Negative: If their batsmen get going they will not show any mercy. Gautam and Sehwag, dhoni, Raina had bad day yesterday so they will try to score alotttttttts of runs...

If by that you mean India then I guess you are right! You guys will be thrashed tomorrow by the roaring Tigers ...

I think we need to keep the same squad or just bring in Rasel for Rubel. Shafiul deserves another chance and dropping Rubel wouldn't harm much as he hasn't been doing anything extraordinary plus he's been around for a while, so the axe wouldn't dishearten him. No question of dropping Raqibul, and Imrul should get another go as well.

January 5, 2010, 10:52 PM
we have no good pacers at the moment. BCB and the couch probably picked Shafiul for a reason. THey probably saw that he was better then both shahadat and Rasel so thats why he played. And if he is the best one in the squad then then we have no chance of beating India.

BD will probably use the strategy of bowling short against India. But inorder for short balls to be lethal, it has to be really fast. I dont thick that Rubel will be able to do this.

The team will probably try using Shahadat for the next match because he bowls short naturally. But his bouncers move at 68 mph. He will get thrashed both Gambhir and Sehwag and everyone else

January 6, 2010, 03:10 AM
It was interesting what Ashraful said in Prothom Alo today.. that if we do better than our 'Best' and if India plays less than normal cricket, we can win!! Doesnt seem like he is expecting to win against India.

However, I guess folks, including the players like Ashraful, are discounting the recent India-SL series scores too much to think that India suddenly became invincible. Some of mentioned before that Mirpur is not a high scoring pitch and the ball will keep low... only BD players are well accustomed to this wicket than anyone else. We also mentioned that the dew will become a factor and if we play with the right selection, we do have a strong possibility against ANY team.

The management did a terrible mistake to sensationalize the game by bringing in yet another rookie.. ( how many pacers did Rafiqul introduce and discard in his 2 year tenure??) and not going with international match experienced Rasel/Shahadat when experienced Mashrafee was out. We needed players with temperament. They went for Imrul Kayes whose average was 9.00 before the series instead of in form Shahrier Nafees who has a 30 plus average. Imrul didnt do too bad but its anyone's guess is that he will not survive against India and he wont be that lucky next match.

Had I been in the management team, I would've dropped both Ruble and Shafiul for Rasel and Shahadat. Atleast they can control the line than the two rookies. The rookies can be tried out in New Zealand where they will have bouncy pitches.

Shafiul's 5 overs cost 39. Rubel's 7 cost 47. Given Rasel's current form or Shahadat's overall ODI record, I don't see them doing much better. Do we really need another 50 in 6 overs performance? Enamul has bowled well in ODI and may do well here.

Saeed Rasel in place for Shafiul
SN for Imrul
Aftab for Rakibul before it is too late.

Shakib should take a break if he fails to perform in next match.

Why replace Raqib with Aftab? So that we get a scoreboard like 0/4? If you watched the game, Raqib didnt throw his wicket away, he got out to a good ball and a stunning catch. He was unlucky, while Aftab will just throw his wicket away. What I love about this new Bangladesh Batting line-up is, they try to fight it out till the end, almost everyone wants to build partnerships. A batsman with an avg of 30+ getting dropped for a batsman who averages 22 just because Raqib did bad in only a single game is insensible to say the least.

While, when Aftab and SN and Kapali were there the Bangladesh team rarely reached scores of 200 or played the full 50 overs, but now thanks to players like Tamim, Mushfique, Raqib, Shaqib, Naeem, Riyad and more responsible batting by Ashraful have made reaching scores of 200+ possible almost consistent. We dont need weak-minded attacking player like Aftab, who are bad at running between the wickets, who doesnt know how to build partnerships and are selfish enough to only care about themselves and not stick to their game plan. This Bangladesh Batting line up shows that almost every batsmen are aware of their roles in the team. I doubt we need some one like Aftab in the team.

IMHO, we dont need to make any changes in our batting line-up, maybe switch Imrul for SN( even that isnt needed really) and we dont need to worry about our spinners, what we need to do is find some good fast bowlers who can keep the runs in check for the first 10 overs. The quality of our present fast-bowling reminds me of the Shanto-Monju era. Its like we had gone back in time, instead of moving forward with our fast-bowlers and their quality

I dont think that BD will win any matches here, this is not Zim and the WI, these are world class players in both teams. SL has some good young players who are trying to cement their place in the team by performing. This is a new team to watch out for more wins in the international arena.
IMO, it is good that BD is playing against these 2 teams, even if they lose, they will learn and gain experience to play against better teams. If they can improve their bowling, they can be more competitive.
What is happening to Sakib's form? Why did he go for that shot? He must curb his aggression at the beginning of his innings. Hopes he perform better from now on.

The key problem is the seam bowling, but even there we don't need an all-singing all-dancing opening bowler, we just need an honest grafter to chip in with some economical spells and the odd wicket much like rasel did in the 2007 World Cup. The spinners can take it from there...

Although India/SL are no Zimbabwe, a spin-heavy attack may be our best bet at this time. Having said that, we really need to review our game plan for pace bowling. In today's cricket, you need a good pace attack to win consistently. We have not produced a world-class pacer since Mashrafe.

Enamul shows a lot of promise, but I don't think he's the answer. We need a decent seamer, especially in the Mirpur dew. If enamul comes in (as I say I don't think he will not least because he is not in the squad) he should replace another spinner (that would be naeem or riyad). That of course would weaken the batting.

I haven't checked the stats but I think Naeem was pretty expensive too (though probably not as expensive as shafiul).

I was wrong before, I forgot that mahmudullah eventually got Dilshan out, but the fact that rubel and shafiul were expensive doesn't mean we need another spinner. We just need some sensible seam bowling. Perhaps Mortaza or Nazmul will recover in time to play against india...?

beshideshi
January 6, 2010, 08:54 AM
I think this off form talk is BS, all a bowler needs to be back in form is a wicket, thats it. Take Rasel, his economical bowling can really put some pressure on the Indians. Specially when Sehwag/Gambhir/Yuvi is used to hitting 3 fours every over, few tight overs will buy us many wickets

i kind of wished shafi would get a 2nd match, but at this point even his extra pace is not enough to trouble batsmen without some skill and accuracy. so definitely good rasel is coming in, but bad that shafi gets the axe on debut.

if we win, we can really press for a finals berth, and i hope mash can come back for that match at least.

January 6, 2010, 11:19 AM
Why replace Raqib with Aftab? So that we get a scoreboard like 0/4? If you watched the game, Raqib didnt throw his wicket away, he got out to a good ball and a stunning catch. He was unlucky, while Aftab will just throw his wicket away. What I love about this new Bangladesh Batting line-up is, they try to fight it out till the end, almost everyone wants to build partnerships. A batsman with an avg of 30+ getting dropped for a batsman who averages 22 just because Raqib did bad in only a single game is insensible to say the least.

While, when Aftab and SN and Kapali were there the Bangladesh team rarely reached scores of 200 or played the full 50 overs, but now thanks to players like Tamim, Mushfique, Raqib, Shaqib, Naeem, Riyad and more responsible batting by Ashraful have made reaching scores of 200+ possible almost consistent. We dont need weak-minded attacking player like Aftab, who are bad at running between the wickets, who doesnt know how to build partnerships and are selfish enough to only care about themselves and not stick to their game plan. This Bangladesh Batting line up shows that almost every batsmen are aware of their roles in the team. I doubt we need some one like Aftab in the team.

IMHO, we dont need to make any changes in our batting line-up, maybe switch Imrul for SN( even that isnt needed really) and we dont need to worry about our spinners, what we need to do is find some good fast bowlers who can keep the runs in check for the first 10 overs. The quality of our present fast-bowling reminds me of the Shanto-Monju era. Its like we had gone back in time, instead of moving forward with our fast-bowlers and their quality

When Aftab plays we have more realistic chance of getting to 300.I really want him to be in the final 11 coz we need to go for the kill i.e score 300 runs if we have to bat first.

Its true that Aftab is not consistent but he still is one of the best and attacking batsman of Bangladesh.We have to rely on him to score big runs against the stronger teams.As you can see it doesnt matter if we score 230+ in a game coz the game has been far more competitive these days where even 300 runs isnt enough to defend.

My proposal: Drop Imrul, bring Rasel in, open with Mushfiq and promote Naeem to no. 6. That way we don't have to drop Shafi and he gets another chance and Rasel gets to play as well. And if we lose the toss and field second then we have three pacers to bowl and won't have to completely rely on spinners.

January 6, 2010, 01:37 PM
And let me tell you,with Kayes and Roqibul in the team we have less chance to reach 300.

I am not sure about Kayes. However, if you have followed the recent ODI trends, if a team can score around 200 in 40 overs, while losing less than 3 wickets, reaching 300 is quite likely. However, it is important to have a couple of stabilizing batsmen in the team and lower-order batsmen who can accelerate in the last 10 overs. We need Raqibul as that stabilizing force.

But with him in the tyeam, we run the risk of bundled out in 180 runs. Infact, I have only seen Aftab play cameos of 30,or35s. If he was that good, his average would have been better. Infact, Raqib's done well against the better teams but not as well against the zimbos. I just dont trust Aftab and never will. Atleast we know Ashraful has the grit to settle down in the wicket and applies himself properly but I have never seen Aftab play with responsibilty, he always plays a qucikfire 30 odd klnock, then throws the wicket away. Tell me, with him in the team, have we ever reached 250+ scores frequently? Forget about reaching scores of 300. If he wants to play, he can play as an opener but not in the place of the only stabilising pillar in our whole trigger-happy batting-line up, prone to self-destruct and collapse on themselves.

It was foolish to have Shafiul debut against such a powerful team. I don't think he is a bad bowler but he won't stand a chance against India. ITS NOT T20!! We need consistent players......
It would be harder to beat India but we need Ash, Tamim to perform again. The thing that prevented Bangladesh from a big score last time was, 65-1, 71-2, 71-3, 74-4
This kind of drop automatically puts a pressure on the remaing, we need to prevent that from hapenning. Also the bowling was terrible by the seamers. We need the seamers to perform because spin is NO problem for Sri Lanka.

At the same time, I think Bangladesh was overconfident. After having 3 sucessful tours, they took it lightly. Don't deny it, its the truth
Also, if they can gave Shafiul a chance, than why not Aftab??

Win toss, BOWL......it gets really hard bowling at night in the dew. The bowl slips easily

Against spin Aftab has some flaws in his technique which is why he hasnt been able to settle down more frequently.I hope he has overcome it.Raqibul's average suggests that he is decent and he also has a good technique but he needs to improve his strike rate.Bringing Aftab in the team can give us some extra cushion in the bowling department with his slow mediums which we badly need in this dodgy and foggy condition.Well Raqibul is going to play the next few matches so it will be a kind of acid test for him.Lets see how well he can do.One Aftab or Raqibul cannot change the whole scenario of the game but can atleast help the team to build a decent total.I am not against/for anyone.I just want a good innings from either two with a good strike rate.

It does not have to be Raqibul, but we need at least one middle-order batsman capable of playing steady innings. We keep forgetting that ODI is not T20 and to accelerate in the death overs, you need wickets in hand. Can you imagine if Tamim and Shakib are batting in the 38th over, with 200 runs on the board? Contrast it with 240 for 7 in 38 overs. We are almost certain to score 300+ in the former situation.

<!--End Images Code--> by Saurabh Somani

India will go into their match against Bangladesh a little wary and unsure of themselves, but with the intent to stamp out Bangladesh's challenge and reassert their team's winning aura. Although India have made good strides in overcoming their ability to lose matches from winning positions - notwithstanding the close losses to Australia in the ODI series last year - they still need to achieve the absolute ruthlessness that made the Australian team unbeatable in their decade of dominance in the late 90s and early to mid 2000s. For instance, they need to ensure that once momentum is built, they don't give the opposition a sniff of a chance to snap it back. This very weakness hurt them in the last match, when a potential 300 plus total was restricted to 279, and eventually led to a loss against a severely depleted Lankan team.

Although Bangladesh are a vastly improved side, and are continuing to make good strides, India will still be the overwhelming favourites for this match. However, due to the loss in the previous match, India will not be likely to experiment with the playing eleven and should go in with the same team that lost to Sri Lanka. It might actually help India to lose the toss and bat first, since they would back themselves to win against Bangladesh irrespective of the toss and bowling in unfavourable conditions will help the bowlers adapt better when faced with a stronger team.

Virender Sehwag is likely to be the key man once again, and though critics will justifiably point to his ODI record as far less than what he is capable of (an average of only 34.38), it is revealing to look at his numbers from the start of 2008. Since then, Sehwag has played 39 matches, scoring 1750 runs at an average of 47.3 and an astounding strike rate of 127.9. That means Sehwag has scored at better than 47 runs off 37 balls each time he has come out to bat from 2008 onwards. What the rest of the team needs to do is ensure it capitalizes on the starts that Sehwag provides - which to be fair to them, they have done more often than not.

The bowling is another matter altogether - blowing hot and cold on alternate days. As Dhoni said, if the bowlers can bowl superbly in patches, there is no reason they can't repeat that consistently. The faster men in particular need to get their radar right, because when they do, India are a very good bowling side. On the spin front, Harbhajan Singh has been excellent, giving away just 4.76 runs an over since 2008, when in the age of Twenty20, even a 5.20 economy rate is acceptable.

For Bangladesh, it is a great opportunity to prove that they are not in the tournament to just make up the numbers or because they are the hosts. They are well capable of pulling off an upset against both other teams in the fray, and have grown cricketing wise as was evident in the way they recovered from a collapse in their game against Sri Lanka to post a very decent total. Earlier, losing four wickets in next to no time inside the first 20 overs would have meant Bangladesh folding for a score under 200, but now they have a new found resilience and cannot be taken lightly. Their victory over the West Indies last year - even against the depleted team that faced them - has filled them with confidence.

Bangladesh's lynch-pin will be Shakib al Hasan - a player who has mastered the art of punching above his weight in all departments of the game. The batting mainstays will be Ashraful and Tamim Iqbal, though there are several players capable of chipping in with useful knocks.

If the chips fall Bangladesh's way, and they find some players who can rise to the occasion, India could well find themselves at the bottom of the league table after the first round of matches. However, with the current Indian team displaying a tougher resolve than its predecessors, they will not be likely to let that eventuality come to pass.

Didnt Siddons say that doing good at the club level is not the same as performing at International stage...(Albeit he said that about Nafees) then how come he went for Safiul or Imrul? Granted our board has no accountability compared to even the Soccer management but a loss against SL was purely due to bad team selection that couldve been avoided with prudent and practical thinking. Will they ever admit or take responsibility for that failure? While I am glad that Rasel is included,,, its just unfair how gets treated all the time. The selectors infatuation for that so called 'raw talent' is just killing players like Sajidul, Rasel, Robin, Dolar etc. And yet we lost another prospect of Shafiul by killing his morale after a disasterous debut. Management is at fault for bringing him so early without prepping him for such team...

I am banking on inclement weather. It is suppose to snow (for the first time this year) May be .5 to 1 inch. :) In the south, that is good enough for office-school closing. Good luck BD. :)

If they think so highly of Shafiul, they should still nurture him and give him the proper training, He has to be weaned very slowly into the national team, maybe playing against Associates, the English tour will be great for him, because they will be playing Scotland and Ireland.

My team would be,
Tamim Iqbal
Mushfiqur Rahim
Aftab Ahmed
Raqibul Hasan
Saqibul Hasan
Ashraul
Naem Islam
Mahumudullah
Syed Rasel
Rubel Hossain

It was foolish to have Shafiul debut against such a powerful team. I don't think he is a bad bowler but he won't stand a chance against India. ITS NOT T20!! We need consistent players......
It would be harder to beat India but we need Ash, Tamim to perform again. The thing that prevented Bangladesh from a big score last time was, 65-1, 71-2, 71-3, 74-4
This kind of drop automatically puts a pressure on the remaing, we need to prevent that from hapenning. Also the bowling was terrible by the seamers. We need the seamers to perform because spin is NO problem for Sri Lanka.

At the same time, I think Bangladesh was overconfident. After having 3 sucessful tours, they took it lightly. Don't deny it, its the truth
Also, if they can gave Shafiul a chance, than why not Aftab??

Win toss, BOWL......it gets really hard bowling at night in the dew. The bowl slips easily

Enjoying the argument between Raqib and Aftab. I couldnt stop to write something.

In my opinion team should be selected depend on the overall circumstances, not just looking on the players average. At the moment we have Imrul, Ash, Sakib, Riyad, Nayeem, mushfiq who can steadyly build the innings if they wish, In that sense if Saqib comes up at Raqib's place Aftab can easily included as a no 5 or 6 batsman,yap even Riyad, nayeem can come up before Aftab as they can play ball by ball not just eating the ball. On the other hand Aftab can easily give us
quick runs which will help us to have a good total or chasing a big total. Yah we r just not using our commonsense, make up a right combination even though we have a chance and day after day we will lose.

Ofcourse Safiuls inclusion in the team was another example of that, When on last series even Dollar was good , he wasnt included this time. Instead a new pacer was included and played with Rubel who just played only first match wih Zimb and we lose that match. It is just rubbish, If they can take risk with Safi or Rubel why cant they take risk with Rasel who is experienced instead Mash.

Allah knows when our team management will think right way,understand the players ability and give chance at the right time.

Koite gele to koto kothai to koite hoy re bhai...see we are having constant problem with pacers. What BCB is doing to solve this problem? Do the rui-katlas have any vision? Just selecting a Sajidul here, then drop him and then select Shafiul....how long this shot term knee-jerk chopping-changing will take us?

Having a strong first class domestic cricket is the most important thing. If you have that, everything will come: batsmen, keeper, pacer, spinner. Look at IND, SL, OZ, ENG or SA: There those who do well in first class cricket, do well in tests, ODIs, and T20s.

I hope that Sakib fires either with the bat or ball, I am so hoping that the tigers will not allow India to score more than 300 runs, and they should really try to up their score to 300 this time if they bat first. I am praying that Sakib wins the toss and bowl first. BD should and must perform better against India than they did against SL.

His medium-pacers have potential as well, as he showed with an astonishing one-day haul of 5 for 31 against New Zealand in November 2004.
