I am hopeful that someone from Bangladesh breaks Ashraful's record in the 1st innings..I hope its the man himself..other good candidates for centuries are Tamim, Sakib and Riyad. Also Zaheer Khan, Harbajan and Ishant Sharma, on the bowling front from India:) I say 400 is happening..question is how far above 400?

zainab
January 14, 2010, 07:09 AM
I dont see any reason why BD cant score more than 350 runs in an innings. The secret is to restrict India to a score of below 500 runs and to make them bat twice. Siddons should drill it into the players heads that they try to bat one session at a time, and not be in a hurry because it is a 5 day game. Now, if they can bat for 5 sessions, it is a big improvement for them. Even if they lose, they should try to avoid an innings defeat.

We should get ready for a battering from India.

Whenever Kalpurush bhai opens a thread with an aggressive image of the Tigers, we got tamed and lose badly even against Zimbabwe. Call me superstituous, i don't mind, but that's what I have seen from my experience here at BC.

KP bhai, please make match threads simple, we are not yet there to show such aggression.

Well now that the ODI series is over (which by the way was a joke for a variety of reasons, all the more adding to my theory of 50-over cricket being a useless format), I can concentrate on some real cricket. The times are a lot better too - I can shoot myself in the arm with some red bull and actually manage to get through most of the day's play and still be at my 125% at work the next day as opposed to, say, 110% on post-match days.

They should have thrown in a couple of T20s there too, perhaps after the Test series.

Correct field placement, intelligent clever decieving bowling will be one the keys to success for Bangladesh. we have to take our chance and set up an aggresive field setting, one that lures the Indian batsmen to play certain shots according to the merit of certain deliveries. I will let BCB think tank, Team strategist and analyst and the management figure the rest of it out, how to use your bowles strength to your advantage.

the pitch should be DRY, favoring spinners, a Little bit of grass, but nonetheless absolutely flat. a pitch which favours Batsmen but has a little bit for spinners as well...

Two possible scenarios:

1. we bat first: I, fans will not(and should not) be happy unless we post at least 400 and bat to at least lunch second day. Advice to players: Test cricket is comfort cricket. you play your shots as you like...you don't have the pressure of Run Rate or risky inventive shots, STAY in the crease, and learn to like it...PLAY SAFE CRICKET. do not worry about following a "standard" of keeping run rate low just because this is a test match. play however you like i do not care if you score 100 runs off 100 balls or 250 balls as long as you get those 100 runs playing comfortable cricket, i will be happy :).

*Do not get complacent. in modern day cricket, especially with Bangladesh cricket, at one moment the Bangladeshi scorecard reads 135/0...the next half hour it reads 155/4..this is a big problem and needs to be sorted out.

*Frustrate the bowlers, make them change their line and length and use the opportunity to score runs.

2. we bowl first: immediately, set aggressive field first. take those chances. we know these are world class batsmen, the will score boundaries at will no matterhow you set your field... take your chances, set field placement according to the line and length of your bowlers bowl=> be consistent=> wickets will come :)( i am no expert on this matter, but if the team management does a little bit of research, such as watching older classic test matches, they may learn a thing or two...)

You can't pick a bowler because he can bat in test (unless his competitor is exactly same in bowling but lesser in batting). Look at what happened with Agarkar and India...

Long as you think that Shahadat can and is likely to do better of Rubel, Robin or Shafi or whichever bowler he is likely to be picked ahead of..at the end of the day tailender is only likely to give ten runs and may only last 20 balls max..if the guy takes 4 wickets, that is far more important...Hope Razzak/Enam donm't get picked on the basis of their batting ahead of a pacer either..tho razzak is kinda handy with the bat (enam isn't)

Def Zunaed..I hope to see Shafi play this match. Enam can sit out as he is likely to have less impact..Shafi might just give a 3 wicket haul 2nd innings. He'd be bit nervous in first..just hold your great line shafi.

Rubel is quite erratic and Alam should play ahead of him if he doesn't deliver wides in the match..Both can reverse swing tho so both good assets wih old ball...

as far as I understand implementing UDRS is done by the TV company and the decision is taken by the host board, in this case BCB. accent of the guest board is more of a formality.

in sri lanka series BCCI was the host so it was their decision to take.

I believe it was a matter of convincing Neo Sports to implement the technology needed, the UDRS system costs around 2 crore taka, and due to lack of funds we dont have UDRS this series.

January 15, 2010, 07:41 AM
In the absence of Mash[or even with him] I believe Shahdat is our best test bowler, and must be picked for the 1st test. And as cricman said, his batting is also a plus. [Our tailenders recently have been nothing but rubbish, as soon as our 7th wicket is down its as good as all out. ] Also we dont have much better options, Robin: Dont think he will be able to trouble indian batting line up. Shafiul: way too young and inexperienced for tests.
So our pace attack should contain Rubel and Rajib. and Robin if we use a 3rd seamer.
PS: how many of our bowler's name start with R?? :S rasel/robin/rubel/razzak/rajib/riyad!

Indian pacers and spinners are better than us, so having helpful pitch for bowling would not help much... only one option, need to bat sensibly.

According to ETV, SN has a very good chance of playing as Siddons thinks he is the best player of spin in the team and the pitch will assist the spinners.

I would almost agree. Ash looks more comfortable but SN is close behind him. He is a good sweeper, and as a lefty he can use that to his advantage . Middle order then. Maybe no.4.

SN should bat in number 3. and mushy should come ahead of Sakib. As much as i'd love to see enam Jr. he hasn't done much damage recently to be in the top 11. we could count on Riyad as the 5th bowler. and maybe ashraful can get us some break through when needed. Rajib is a must in the absence of Mash, i'd go with Rajib, Robin, and Rubel/Shaiful.

Ok, so Rubel for Shafiul...that's good tbh. Rajib provides experience, Robin provides swing and Shafiul provides mystery. Rubel din't do any good in the two tests he played in WI (two, right?). So at home, Shafiul might just come handy.

Edit: Oh, shoot! No Enam?!?!?! Riyad got massive resposibilities now then.

with that bowling linup, india will be 1000-2 dec after day 2 (rajib and sakib with wickets).

i want to see rubel for robin...robin is crap and has no pace. shafiul, not ready, but we don't have much choice, unless we take a third spinner - and i'd rather see 2 pacers and enam be the third spinner.

Its a shame they don't have UDRS in this series. Just goes to show that ICC has no power to enforce anything mandatorily. By not making it mandatory ICC are not giving all players equal opportunity .

Just imagine a player in this series is given lbw of an inside edge on 99. He can't review, but a similar player in another series can review and score a century.

If BCB as the host broadcaster along with Nimbus have decided not to use the UDRS due to financial reasosn will they find the money by the time England arrive or will they still be without UDRS.

Robin is actually statistically better than Shahadat and also can swing the ball very well..it's very important in test cricket to have that ability because as mahmudullah says..the red ball swings and seams a lot more then the white ball..so robin could be handy..i think he's an automatic choice to play..also they look like their set with their bowlers according to mahmudullah..so their putting a lot of pressure on shakib and riyad to bowl well..if i were the management i would play shahadat and robin and have enamul there..if the track has some turn then why just have 1 spinner in shakib and pert time(mahmud)?

We need another specialist spinner since we will be bowling a lot to the indians and fast bowlers can atbest provide 15 overs per day. Ideally 12 overs with full throttle. So bowling the remaining 54 overs with Sakib and Riyad is just not ideal given that Riyad is not even a genuine bowler....
Atleast cut a batsmen short for an additional bowler...

Playing against India/Sri Lanka/Pakistan in Tests are always going to be challenging as they play spin very well ( and unfortunately, we dont!!); This becomes more of a problem when you doing have quality pacers... However, India is extremely strong against Spin. Even Murli was beaten badly by the Indians.. Only Medium Pacers or Pace attack can solve the bowling problem against these sub-continent teams.

With that, Bangladesh has to go with 3 pacers and I wouldve wanted to see Enamul Jr. as the spinner in the team. He did well in recent matches and is a genuine bowler who can trouble the batsmen. Especially with his experience in Chittagong pitch. Riad is still a part-timer. I would've gone with:

Tamim
Shahrier Nafis
Ashraful
Rakibul

Saqibul Hasan
Riad
Mushfiqur

robin is very limited...the only reason he's even comparable to shahadat "statistically" is cuz rajib has been totally toothless the last year and half under ramayake's "coaching" for lack of a better word.

when rajib was in form, over several series, even mash couldn't have held a candle to his potency.

robin is just a taller nazmul hossain. i'd rather have shafiul islam than robin.

Well no doubt shahadat is very talented and has potential..way more then robin but again if you don't use your talent well then it doesn't matter..in the games he played against domestic matches shahadat averaged a 32.45 while robin averaged a 23.45..you can check on cricketarchive..shahadats test avg is much better with an avg of 43 while robin is a 62..but then again robin has played less matches then shahadat..at 1st i admit..i wuznt a great fan of robin but the man has good swing..in my opinion shafiul and rubel are 2 inexperienced in test cricket 2 play..they should be left out

Asaad, why are you so down on Robin. His problem is the same as Rajib's in that he bowls a 4-ball every over but he also bowls way more deliveries that make the batsman plan and the first genuine swing bowler I've seen in BD - he makes the cherry go bothways!

I'd not play Shahadat - I'd go with Rubel's raw pace and hope that it gets us the shock breakthroughs.

Robin doesn't have experience, and since none of the other pacers do, it comes down to potential. yes he does swing the ball a bit, but i don't see him as a guy that will really threaten the batsmen continually - not at his pace.

i'd rather see a Shahadat - vowing to rid himself of ramanyake's curse - plus Rubel, with 3 spinners in Shakib, Enam, and Riyad.

the best team, IMO, is the followng:

1) Tamim
2) Imrul (if he ducks the bouncers, or plays his pulls along the ground, we're good)
3) SN (since think tank is looking for that)
4) Rahim
5) Ashraful
6) Rock
7) Shakib
8) Riyad
9) Rajib
10) Enam
11) Rubel

best attack possible: bat 8 deep, with rajib and enam capable of occaisional 15-20+ scores, 2 spinners that turn it one way, one more who turns it the other way, and 2 pacers who have the stamina to bowl 30-40 overs per day, and get purchase from both new and old balls.

What the hell, Robin isnt slow, he can be quite nippy, Id say he's faster than skinny Shafi, (seriously that kid needs to put on some weight)

There were no speed cameras in South Africa, but I would say he must of been bowling 85mph, if he was getting that much reverse swing. Fact stands, Robin is the best swinger of the ball, that Bangladesh has ever producedHe has the potential to become Bangladesh's Jimmy Anderson

And dont get me started on Enamul, he's a nice pleasant guy, but he is not going to do anything against India.

Best way for any team to surprise India is to surprise with new bowlers which not many have seen before. Some players are vulnerable against new comers regardless of their standard. Infact india hasn't play BD in Tests for a long time. India bull dozed SL because they were overly familiar to Indian batsmen as they have been playing far too often.

tough call on the bowling attack i reckon. i'm not a fan of enamul so i'd probably leave him out, maybe if shuvo was in the squad i'd pick him but since he's not we go with an extra pacer and just have shakib and riyad do most of the spin with ashraful maybe bowling a couple of overs here and there.

when it comes to the pacers i'm really torn, tbh i want to see all of them play. normally shahadat would be an automatic because of his experience and the others lack there of but with his form over the last couple of years it's tough to pick him imo. in saying that rubel doesn't have the line and length to put enough pressure on batsmen at test level imo, robin has struggled to take wickets, shafiul is completely new. i'd probably pick shafiul and robin then toss a coin for shahadat or rubel. shafiul is pretty quick, just a a couple of km's slower than rubel and the old shahadat so really he can be "speedster" although none of them are really quick enough other than rubel at top pace (148km) to be considered a speedster so it's kind of irrelevant. if i was picking from recent shafiul, recent shahadat and recent rubel i'd be picking shafiul. so robin and shafiul and then whoever is bowling better in the nets out of shahadat and rubel.

Quotes

"In one-day [cricket] they can surprise anybody but not in Test matches. It's an ordinary side. It's difficult for Bangladesh to take 20 Indian wickets. The kind of batting line up we have, I don't think so. Even Sri Lanka can't do that."
Clearly Virender Sehwag thinks it's very very difficult for Bangladesh to beat India.

Virender Sehwag doesn't have an international century against Bangladesh. In two Tests against them, he has managed 23 runs, and even his ODI average against Bangladesh is lower than his overall average. Some correction of those stats might be in order.

Watch for Ashraful and Enamul Jr. Siddons and BCB need to think hard for a side wicketkeeper.

the way Riyad bowled in recent ODI matches, I don't think he can be used as a fifth bowler in test matches. given the batting abilities of Shakib and Mushfiq, we would easily take four specialist bowlers in the team (excluding Shak). I will be surprised if Riyad can bowl about 15 overs per innings.

hope Riyad will surprise me with his bowling.

If this is true, i think JS is on the right track, I'd got for 3 pacers, Rajib, Robin and Rubel.

Ideally, however, the attack would comprise: rajib, robin, rubel, shakib and enamul but that would significantly weaken the batting (someone like Riyad would have to be dropped) - so it's a non-starter.

As I say, I'd hedge my bets and go for 3 pacers and hope riyad/ash can do a decent job as 5th bowler....

January 16, 2010, 06:02 AM
Prediction time!!!!

Robin wickets: Sehwag, VVS Laxman

Shahadat: Gambhir, Sreesanth

Shakib: Dravid, Tendulkar, Yuvrag, Dhoni

Rubel: Zaheer Khan, Harbajhan Singh

Riyad and Ash: Mishra

India will either collapse for 277 runs, or recover to post 346 all out

If I am not mistaken, wicketkeepers aren't considered allrounders

There's no "rule" on what is and isn't considered an "all rounder". Alec Stewart often says that you should only be considered an all rounder if you actually take wickets (by bowling) and score runs.

A keeper doesn't bowl so how can he be an all rounder?

If his performance behind the stumps counts as an extra skill, then any decent fielder should be considered an all rounder. A keeper's is contribution is more comparable to that of a fielder than a batsman or bowler...

abu2abu
January 16, 2010, 06:05 AM
I think the bolwing attack siddons and shakib will go for is:

Rajib
Rubel
Robin
Shakib
riyad

No room for enamul..

Quotes

"In one-day [cricket] they can surprise anybody but not in Test matches. It's an ordinary side. It's difficult for Bangladesh to take 20 Indian wickets. The kind of batting line up we have, I don't think so. Even Sri Lanka can't do that."
Clearly Virender Sehwag thinks it's very very difficult for Bangladesh to beat India.

Virender Sehwag doesn't have an international century against Bangladesh. In two Tests against them, he has managed 23 runs, and even his ODI average against Bangladesh is lower than his overall average. Some correction of those stats might be in order.

http://www.cricinfo.com/bdeshvind2010/content/story/444402.html

Why doesn't Shahadat challenge Sehwag to come bat without a helmet? Ponting would do it against us...Let's see how he is then...I just wish Mashrafee was in the team...just hearing this he might've taken 8 wickets and scored 2 fifties in the match

Its a shame they don't have UDRS in this series. Just goes to show that ICC has no power to enforce anything mandatorily. By not making it mandatory ICC are not giving all players equal opportunity .

Just imagine a player in this series is given lbw of an inside edge on 99. He can't review, but a similar player in another series can review and score a century.

If BCB as the host broadcaster along with Nimbus have decided not to use the UDRS due to financial reasosn will they find the money by the time England arrive or will they still be without UDRS.
Just a query: What happened in the Ind-SL series? Why didn't BCCI have UDRS? Was it because of financial reasons as well?

I agree that all test matches should have UDRS implemented. May be ICC can bear half of the cost? Plus they have to ensure hotspot is available. Ask Andy Flower.

Honest answer to your first question - I don't know.

Agree with your second point. Although with Daryl Harper as Third Umpire, he will probably still not be able to see with Hotspot:lol:

ICC can definitely bear the cost of Hotspot and should do. It can't be one rule for one country and another for a different country.

Shafiul is ready to make his test debut.


[বাংলা]প্রায় দুই বছর পর টেস্ট ক্রিকেটে ফিরলেন ব্যাটসম্যান শাহরিয়ার নাফীস। সেই সঙ্গে নিজেকে ফিরে পাওয়ার লড়াইয়ে নামার প্রতিশ্র"তি দিলেন জাতীয় দলের বাঁ-হাতি এই ক্রিকেটার। বললেন, দলে জায়গা পাকা করার জন্য যা করতে হবে, তার সবই করবেন তিনি।

একাদশে জায়গা পাওয়ার পর শাহরিয়ার নাফীস বলেন, "টেস্ট খেলার সুযোগ পাওয়ায় খুবই ভালো লাগছে। আশা করি নামের প্রতি সুবিচার করে খেলতে পারবো। দলের প্রয়োজনে বড় ইনিংস খেলাই হবে আমার লক্ষ্য।"

দলে স্থায়ীভাবে জায়গা করে নেয়ার চেষ্টা করবেন বলেও জানান শাহরিয়ার নাফিস। তিনি বলেন, "সুযোগ কাজে লাগাতে পারলে নিশ্চয়ই দল থেকে ছিটকে পড়ার শঙ্কা থাকবে না।"

সর্ব শেষ ২০০৮ সালের ফেব্র"য়ারিতে দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকার বিপক্ষে টেস্ট খেলেছেন শাহরিয়ার নাফিস। রান করেছিলেন প্রথম ইনিংসে ৬৯, দ্বিতীয় ইনিংসে ৩১। ওই বছর বাংলাদেশ আর কোনো টেস্ট সিরিজ খেলেনি। তবে একদিনের দলে ছিলেন ইন্ডিয়ান ক্রিকেট লিগ (আইসিএল)-এ খেলার আগ পর্যন্ত। আইসিএল খেলে এক বছরেরও বেশি সময় জাতীয় দলের বাইরে থাকলেও নিষেধাজ্ঞা কটিয়ে এ বছরই আইডিয়া কাপ ত্রিদেশীয় সিরিজের একদিনের দলে জায়গা করে নেন তিনি। সঙ্গে টেস্ট ক্রিকেটেও।

ওয়ানডের পর টেস্ট ক্রিকেটেও অভিষেক হতে যাচ্ছে তরুণ পেসার শফিউল ইসলামের। মাত্র ৯টি প্রথম শ্রেণীর ম্যাচ খেলার অভিজ্ঞতা নিয়ে টেস্ট ক্যাপ পড়তে যাচ্ছেন তিনি। শফিউল তার প্রতিক্রিয়ায় বলেন, "এটি একজন ক্রিকেটারের জন্য সত্যিই আনন্দের। টেস্ট খেলার সুযোগ পাচ্ছি, নিজেকে প্রমাণের চেষ্টা করবো।"

১৯ বছর বয়সী নবীন এই পেসার মুখিয়ে আছেন ভারতীয় ব্যাটসম্যানদের মোক্ষম জবাব দেয়ার জন্য। স্বপ্ন দেখছেন তারকা ব্যাটসম্যানদের আউট করার। [/বাংলা]

If there is some grass on the track In that case it will be a real test for our batsman.Hope they will succeed.

January 16, 2010, 12:47 PM
I dont see any reason why BD cant score more than 350 runs in an innings. The secret is to restrict India to a score of below 500 runs and to make them bat twice. Siddons should drill it into the players heads that they try to bat one session at a time, and not be in a hurry because it is a 5 day game. Now, if they can bat for 5 sessions, it is a big improvement for them. Even if they lose, they should try to avoid an innings defeat.

Everyone should try to bat like Raqibul and should remember that there is no over limit in tests. Batting 5 sessions at a RR of 2.5-3.0 should allow Bangladesh to score 450+. After watching Bangladesh in the tri-series, I am confident that we can easily do this, if we apply ourselves.

January 16, 2010, 12:49 PM
Nice thread Mr. Kevin P.
Shakib will be the key for bangladesh. He is the best bowler of our side. I am not worried about batting. The main concern is our bowling.

If we lose, it will likely be due to our ODI-style batting in tests.

According to amardesh, first 11 is almost fixed:

3 pacers : Shahadat-Robin-Saiful
2 spinners : Shack and Riyad
6 batsmen : Imrul, Tamim, SN, Rock, Ash, Mushfiq

Enam should have been there. I like more Zunaed than SN in the team.

Enamul is okay for ODI, but not attacking enough for tests. We need to develop spinners who would attack the stamps and use variations in flight, amount of spin, line, and bounce to get wickets. Right now, Shakib is the only one in the team who can do that.

Unfortunately, they consider themselves as the Big Brother, in fact the Big Brother of this region.

just coz the size is bigger...and we're tired of telling them size doesn't matter.

its time to expect a double ton from any of top 5.
it will be great if it happens after 10yrs test status.
something special.

Indeed they will, i am keeping my fingers crossed. They have steadilily improved in Tests since the SL debacle in 2007, when they were defeated in all three test matches by an innings, and many batsmen made tons against them. the turning point was when they went to NZ, then opposing teams began batting twice.
India might be a bit complacent, as they did thrash SL badly, which is ranked fifth and a better team than BD. AT least a few of their batsmen are dependable and can make a few tons. Sehwag probably feels that he can score a double ton here.

Long time ago, when Sehwag hit tripple ton in test [was it in AUS?], he was so confident saying hitting double ton in ODI quite possible for him keeping an eye on coming up BD series. That didnt happen, he got flying start everytime but fall eventually. This time wont be any different I guess.

sehwag was nearly the first to get 3 triple tons in test cricket, fell short by 7 (i think) though. the guy is a quality player but these sort of comments are uncalled for.
