I am hoping to see 1 change in the team.Zunaed in place of Aftab.
But as i guess the team management would go for Raqibul in place of Naeem.I dont want that to happen.Anyways best of luck to the tigers.

I think you've got it spot on by my book! Even down to the whole batting order. Naeem deserves to play ahead of boom-boom aftab and the rockibul with a mythically nice technique that I'm yet to see.

Pity we didn't get any time for match practice for 1st class cricket.

Only by default at the moment..what other options would we have? Maybe we'll start thinking of someone instead of Ash in the coming England series..but he deserves to play ahead of Aftab (who's shown nothing) and Rakib (seemingly no great technical ability in tests). We have faisal hossain scoring runs in the middle order in NCL..but you'd all say its too early for him. Bashar noone in BC likes except a few. One thing is...riyad and rahim (no.4) can both play ahead of Ash, but would that spoil their game?

Wouldn't mind seeing Broom in the NZ side- Shakib seemed to have it all over him.

Once again I think Taylor will be the key. Without Ryder, he and Guptill will be the ones asked to hold the middle order together.

Oh and getting Vettori early would be handy too.

THE TEST TEAM HAS NO RELATION WITH THE TEAMS THAT PLAYED IN ODI'S.

IT HAS RELATION WITH THE TEAM THAT PLAYED WITH INDIA IN THE 2ND TEST.

if u cant remember ..... this was it .....

tamim

zunaed

raqibul
shakib
mushfiq
riyadh
rajib
shafiul
rubel

now what will be the changes ??????

tamim- cant drop him scored a century in the last test
imrul- did not have a good test series but his century today will ensure his place in the team
zunaed- had a good partnership with tamim and so he will get his chance
ashraful- was involved in a good parnership with shahadat and will keep his place
RAQIBUL- hasnt had a good outing in any form recently, dropped from ODI, could be dropped from tests but could get lucky as he is labeled our FC specialist
shakib- u cant drop captain
mushfiq- automatic selection
riyadh- one of our best performers in the last series
shahadat (the pace trio is doing OK)
shafiul (do)
rubel (do)

now other members in the squad looking for a chance are

nazmul- not in full fitness or form to take the place og the trio
razzak- will we go with the 2nd spinner ???
naeem- fav to replace Raqibul if he gets dropped
aftab- well everybody says he is not for this form of the game, very little chance form him to come.

So form-wise the only change could happen from the last test is naeem for raqibul.

now any tactical change ????? is there any possibility that we drop a batsmen include a 2nd spinner (razzak )or a 4th seamer (nazmul)?????

in any case we need a MAIN spinner, this allrounder trio isnt working and we are putting too much pressure on Sakib although Naeem was a super flop in the 4 tests he played. I would put a batsman, in this case ash.

he scored 25 in that innings. So 25 runs is enough for him. His records in outside subcontinent is pathetic. I will retain Rakibul and include Nayeem in the team instead of Ash.

Placing my order here:

250+ in both innings
1 ton, 2 50s in each innings. They are fully capable of doing this.
Match has to last at least 4 days
Line & length bowling
Great fielding
Target Vettori, beat him beyond recognition, Danny has to have nightmare about this match
Pro-active and attacking captaincy
Positive body language, even in to the 4th or 5th day
Better keeping from Mushfiq

Everything comes down to the Shak-Vett duel, If Vett can bowl/bat well we are screwed. On the other hand if Shak does his job, we are in with a chance. So in order to win: Deactivate Vettorinator, and activate Shakster :)
PS: a draw is impossible for BD in NZ, no way can we last 3 days, so no point going for draw and losing the game :)

What was their highest test score against the Kiwis? Cant remember. They have recorded their highest ODI innings against the Kiwis, now it is time for them to record their highest test score.

Actually in 2008, even though they lost, they did not lose by an innings and no Kiwi batsman made a century against them.
They did not do very badly against India, but that was on home ground, here, they are playing on bouncy wicket and they are not used to it.
When these guys go to SA, NZ, England and Australia, they cannot play the rising ball and being short in stature does not help. I dont know why Siddons does not address this problem at home and get the curator to build a bouncy wicket for them to practice on.

I think time has come that we use 5 bowlers, it will be crucial to have the 5th bowler, perhaps in the form of Enamul. Having Shakib in the team allows us a team with 12 players, 7 batsmen, and 5 bowlers.

Well, my team has at least 5 bowlers...3 pacers in Shahadat, Rubel and Shafi and spinners in Sakib and Naeem. NZ wickets don't spin anyways, so what's the use in playing a specialist in Enam who noone will guarantee can even take wickets at home? I think the extra batsman may help more, even in the form of Ashraful.

I don't think Nayeem himself would consider him as a test quality bowler. In an ODI he might put in 4-5 overs, but in tests you need to have specialist bowlers.
But if we don't play the extra spinner, the work load on Shakib becomes enormous, which has adverse affect on his bowling and batting. So i hope we take an extra specialist spinner and let Shakib be Shakib ;)

This team is much better in Test while NZ in ODI.
Win is on the card.
I agree NZ is a better ODI team that a test one. There is no question of innings defeat, but I think BD just do not have the capabilities to put pressure on any of the top 8 teams at their home. A spirited show, a couple of 50's and a century will give us , the fans some hope...
my prediction is a respectable 5th day loss...

I don't think Nayeem himself would consider him as a test quality bowler. In an ODI he might put in 4-5 overs, but in tests you need to have specialist bowlers.
But if we don't play the extra spinner, the work load on Shakib becomes enormous, which has adverse affect on his bowling and batting. So i hope we take an extra specialist spinner and let Shakib be Shakib ;)

Well, Naeem can't do much worse than Razzak in this spin-unfriendly conditions, can he? All we need is someone to keep bowling spin in tandem with him for 15 overs or so...surely Naeem can do that without being too expensive. Naeem prob has more of a chance taking wickets than Razzak anyway. But then, I'm not the one watching Raj in practice, so I cant make that decision.

Also love the agression he shows towards players, the next Inzi only more aggresive. Nz will be a much better unit once Bond gets back. I bet we are going to lose this test by an Innings.

Medium-pacer Brent Arnel delivers the ball, Northern Districts v Wellington, State Championship, 2nd day, Hamilton, November 13, 2007

Players/Officials: Brent Arnel | Andy McKay
Series/Tournaments: Bangladesh tour of New Zealand
Teams: New Zealand

Northern Districts fast bowler Brent Arnel has replaced the injured left-arm seamer Andy McKay in the squad for the one-off Test against Bangladesh in Hamilton starting on Monday. McKay started experiencing pain in his foot during the one-day series and the team physiotherapist Kate Stalker has said he has been rested as a precautionary measure.

"This pain intensified today during training, and a decision was made not to play him in the Test," Stalker told NZPA.

McKay, 29, made an impressive start to his ODI career, taking five wickets at an average of 21 but it was his pace which stood out. He reportedly clocked 147 kph in the Napier ODI and the captain Daniel Vettori said he was one of the quickest bowlers he had faced in the Twenty20 HRV Cup, even comparing him to Shane Bond.

Mark Greatbatch, the coach, too felt it wasn't worth risking him for the Test. "It would be unwise to risk aggravating his injury for the sake of a one-off Test match," Greatbatch said. "We want to make sure he is fit again as soon as possible. We are all disappointed for Andy, but at this stage he needs a chance to rest his foot and recover properly."

Arnel, a right-arm seamer, has yet to make his international debut after being in the national reckoning for the last couple of years. He topped the State Championship wicket charts with 33 wickets in 2007-08 and toured India with the A squad in 2008. He was also called-up to the Test squad for the home series against India a few months later but did not get a game.

Arnel is currently the third-highest wicket-taker in the first-class Plunkett Shield with 20 wickets in four games, and Greatbatch said he was finally being rewarded. "Brent has been in the wings for a while and was 12th man for New Zealand during last year's Indian tour," he said. "He has been doing a lot of extra bowling recently and has been performing well at domestic cricket."

Time to deliver.

Form guide (last five completed matches, most recent first)


New Zealand - DLWLL
Bangladesh - LLWWL




Watch out for


Shakib Al Hasan is for Bangladesh what Daniel Vettori is for New Zealand - captain, key batsman in the middle order, and premier bowler. Shakib was in poor form in the ODIs, scoring a total of eight runs in the first two games before making 36 in the third. His left-arm spin, however, was effective, resulting in five wickets at 21.60. He will have to raise his batting and maintain his bowling form if Bangladesh are going to push New Zealand.


Peter Ingram made a steady start to his ODI career - 122 runs in three innings - and has been slotted at the pivotal No. 3 spot in the Test line-up. Vettori said finding a solid top order has been a "perennial challenge" for New Zealand so the spot is there for the taking for Ingram.



Team news



Ingram batting at No. 3 means Martin Guptill will drop down to No. 5, with Vettori likely to bat at No. 6 ahead of McCullum. The late injury to McKay has forced New Zealand to rework their attack, which is now likely to comprise three fast bowlers and a second spinner in Jeetan Patel, ahead of back-up seamer Brent Arnel.

New Zealand: (probable) 1 Tim McIntosh, 2 BJ Watling, 3 Peter Ingram, 4 Ross Taylor, 5 Martin Guptill, 6 Daniel Vettori (capt), 7 Brendon McCullum (wk), 8 Tim Southee, 9 Daryl Tuffey, 10 Jeetan Patel, 11 Chris Martin.

<b>If you look at this lineup, we are actually more experienced. I predict a combined total under 500 for the first innings of the two teams!</b>

If we play patiently and bat well, we will make a good fight out of this. If the players all gave their best shot, I don't see why we can't....not jinxing anything.

Cant agree with team management here..raqibul needed to be dropped of course but then they put in aftab? Wat has he done to warrant a spot in tests? Naeem shouldve definitely gotten the nod over Aftab..in naeems only 1st class match he hit a century and had 5 1st class centuries overall..shouldnt that warrant a test spot over a player who has a career FC avg of a 26? Bad idea..i see aftab absolutely flopping in this test match..

The_Yorker
February 14, 2010, 10:30 AM
This is another stupid selection- Aftab over Naeem in Test?? Sometimes these moron selectors do not think while making decision. They have their own idiotic logic. I would pick even Raqibul over Aftab. Whenever has Aftab done well in Tests or First class matches? Aftab is still a good pick in ODI but certainly not in Tests. And why not adding a full time spinner? It's not like we have world class pacers; but we do have quite good spinners who have troubled batsman many times. Spin bowling is our strength, use it- you moron management! If Razzak is not in form then Shuvo/Saqlain are in form. Bring them in. Also I don't supoort the inclusion of Imrul in the Test. He has pretty good performance in List A, he just got a century in the last ODI, but his performance in first class match is nothting notable, he has horrible performance in Tests. Because he just got century, he should be given a chance to play next ODI matches without question and the management will do that and let him play another 10 ODI. Lets just play him in ODI for now not Tests yet.

Anyway, I am not surprized because team management always makes stupid decisions and this is just one of them. They are always intoxicated just by eating too much rice and gorur bhuna.

What is the source of this information? As per cricinfo Aftab will play but i think its a wrong information and i think you r correct and probably Rock will play as Siddons is very strict about team selection about his own openion.

if we have any intention of stopping a top order collapse we should not let Ash and Aftab come one after another. riyad should come in before shakib, preferably at number 4/5.

This turn of event is really funny, least expected by the fans. We are riding that choo choo train circling back to DW era. Now Aftab in test and we are one short of a good bowling option in the only test I had high hopes about. I believe we will find Bashar in no.3 and one of IK or JuSi will be dropped by the time England arrives.

I completely Agree with you ASif Bhai. but this is how management thinks: they are valuing experience over anything else...

sometimes poeple may mistake my opinion for BCB/ management opinion..BUT i only state what they think(or my conjecture about it) and what I think seperately.

I would have chosen Naeem Islam too...because he has more recent international experience than Aftab. cricket is all about continuity not an occasional spark or two...even though Aftab may have more experince, how is his recent touch? out of the two who is more capable of putting a 50+ innings? Aftab or Naeem?

sadi
February 14, 2010, 01:18 PM
Siddon said Aftab is not ready for this level of cricket and now he chooses him for the test match? Something is missing. I think he said that out just to hurt Aftab's pride and see how he replies to that. Aftab usually plays better against pacers and I hope he does well today.

Very Indifferent about this, on one hand I am pleasantly surprised in Aftab, hopefully he can replicate his Riverside Knock, but on the other hand Naeem deserved his spot, Naeem has a better FC record & done more w/ the Nat Team to atleast deserve a place in this Test XI

What I feel (might be a un popular opinion), Naeem is more of a Bits and Piece type player, thats why he bats so low and hasn't been promoted in ODI's, he's more of a Power Hitter (despite his FC Record), Aftab on the other hand is more of a Batsmen who relays on timing, Plays more proper shots his problem is just that he to plays too many.

I think the Coach has had a chance of heart on Aftab, he went from not being highly regarded post ICL to Test Cap by him. He's sees something in him now, that all of us (at one time or the other) once saw in him

Rocky should have been selected, I think he can hold his end. Why was Aftab selected? he is no test cricketer. Well, if he fails now, Siddons can say i gave him a fair chance in ODIs and the Test match and bye bye now until you can perform well again. He should be in the 20/20 squad though with Naeem Islam.

Based on past matches, BD always scores better in the second innings. I hope Sakib wins the toss and field first, he is not lucky at winning tosses.
Hoping for a first innings score of at least 350 runs.

sadi
February 14, 2010, 04:29 PM
I will be happy with first innings score of 300. If New Zealand bats first, we need to restrict them within 350. First day is the key, IMO. On a green top like this, it is very important not to lose too many wickets if batting first and needs to pick up quick wickets if bowling first.

However alot of the times when he does win the toss he makes the wrong decision. I hope he and the team management study the pitch very carefully. For some odd reasonI am hopeful inshallah dat we will get something out of this match.

But it is also your summer time. With long daylight hours that is hardly a problem. It also takes out the toss "lottery". 11am start really is a 10am start and the morning dew could help the bowling side.
