MH Rubel and other friends in BD, what's the weather looking like in Dhaka?

Are we likely to see a rain interrupted match on Sunday?

Also, england arrived in Dhaka from Dubai where they played a couple of T20s against Pakistan. Some players (like kieswetter) had been in Dubai for a while longer having been part of the england Lions team.

Since arriving in dhaka they have played 2 warm up matches against 2 BCB board XIs.

The BD team have returned to dhaka last weekend after completing a one-off test match against New Zealand in NZ.

My question is what have the BD team been doing to prepare for the ODIs against England? Normally domestic cricket is good enough, but we all know Desh's domestic structure is not very good.

And were is Jamie Siddons? Why was he in Aus the week before the ODIs against England? BD are not a team like India, our coach is important to us.

I had always thought BD had a good chance against england at home, with this sort of build up I'm not so sure anymore...

i had an evening walk around the SNBS. the floodlights were on and the curators were working on the pitch. also some officials were roaming in the VIP area.

the players are well tuned up. they played agaisnt india at home not so ago. they were playing cricket in NZ. so they should be well in the groove. perhaps they needed some rest. players like aftab, naeem, junaed, rokibul were out of favour or out of the game, they were given knocks.

i expect the team to be declared tonight or early tomorrow and the players will star training tomorrow. i think this is enough for us.

i think we have had decent preparation after being in NZ, considering that pace is our main enemy against England; nevertheless u r right we cud have done with a couple of practice matches or so;

The squad has not been announced yet. If he is in the squad then the selectors can answer that better. I doubt Raqibul will answer the media.

February 25, 2010, 11:08 AM
Shakib should bowl first if wins the toss for the first two ODI's because of the dew factor at night. We observed how dew affected on the match outcome in the tri-series. I wonder how much dew is there in this month at Dhaka at night.

I would play Mushy at #4, Shakib is fine at 5 and we just need to promote Riyad and Naeem 1 spot to play Shuvo at #8.

Shakib

I am in fear both may play.Anyway it seems batting is very weak.Aftab Junaid both are very unpredictable and inconsistent.IMO its better to play with 5 specialist bowler and play either Junaid/Aftab(I prefer Aftab) as coach said earlier "Team can not bear burden of 2 inconsistent player."

In 2 Practice match English team looking very good

They did their home work very good. Last time AUS came to BD straight from SA with jet-legged and almost paid the price. ENG did some conditioning in Dubai playing against a sound team, then 2 good practice match will spell out, if any, lethergy in the team. ENG is in top of their form for quite sometime. I hope BD is upto it.

Just win the toss, bat first and pile up 300+.
England will perish. Just imagine we had 30/40 more runs during WC match. Rafique would have then demolished the tail to bring another sweet victory.

Because he is the best pace bowler Bangladesh ever produced in terms of variations. He also have good controls over his line and lengths. Plays well under pressure unlike other pace bowlers including Mash.

hasibul hossain shanto was a better bowler than him just before that sad injury. only thing hasibul did not have was pace. but he as good at sing and slower and yorkers.

well, shafiul still has a high economy rate than rubel.

According to NTV, Mash is almost certain to miss the 1st ODI and Riyad will play in Ash's position (No.4) in the top order, so judging by that our likely playing XI will be:

1. Tamim

3. Aftab
4. Riyad
5. Shakib (c)
6. Mushy
7. Naeem
8. Shuvo

রিয়াদকে এগিয়ে নেওয়ার পরিকল্পনা নেই
[বাংলা]ভারতের বিপক্ষে ঢাকা টেস্টে ৮ নম্বরে ব্যাট করতে নেমে মাহমুদউল্লাহ রিয়াদকে ৯৬ রানে অপরাজিত থাকতে দেখে ভারতের লিটল মাস্টার সুনীল গাভাস্কার প্রশ্ন করেছিলেন, 'মাহমুদউল্লাহ কেন আট নম্বরে ব্যাট করে?' তখন গাভাস্কারের সেই প্রশ্নের উত্তর পাওয়া যায়নি। নিউজিল্যান্ডের হ্যামিল্টনে একমাত্র টেস্টটিতে গাভাস্কারের সেই প্রশ্ন সর্বজনীন করে ফেলেন রিয়াদ। ঢাকায় যে দুঃখ সঙ্গী করে নিউজিল্যান্ডে গিয়েছিলেন এদিন তিনি সেটা মেটালেন সেঞ্চুরি করে। তার ১১৫ রানের অনন্য সুন্দর ইনিংসটি বাংলাদেশকে বাঁচিয়েছে ফলোঅনের শঙ্কা থেকে। তখন থেকেই গাভাস্কারের রেখে যাওয়া প্রশ্নটার উত্তর খুঁজতে শুরু করেছিলেন সবাই। এবার যখন ঘরের মাটিতে ইংল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে সিরিজ আর তাতে নেই আশরাফুল ও রকিবুল, তখন সবাই ধরে নিয়েছিলেন এবার হয়তো ব্যাটিং অর্ডারটা উপরের দিকে উঠতে যাচ্ছেন রিয়াদের। কিন্তু কোচ জানালেন সে পরিকল্পনায় তিনি নেই। 'সে তো (মাহমুদউল্লাহ) আট নম্বরেই রান পাচ্ছে। উপরের দিকে নিয়ে এসে নতুন বলের সামনে ফেলে আমরা তাকে চাপে ফেলতে চাই না। তাছাড়া ৪০ ওভারের পর পাওয়ার প্লের সময় তাকে কাজে লাগাতে চাই। আমি মনে করি রিয়াদ তার ওই জায়গাটাই বেশ উপভোগ করছে।'
সত্যিই কি রিয়াদ উপভোগ করছে আট নম্বর জায়গাটি? 'দলের প্রয়োজনে আমি যে কোনো জায়গায় খেলতে প্রস্তুত। ব্যাটিং অর্ডার নিয়ে আমার বাড়তি কোনো ভাবনা নেই। খেলতে নামলে শুধু দলকে কিছু দেওয়ার চেষ্টা করি।' প্র্যাকটিস শেষে কেবল এটুকুই বলতে পেরেছিলেন রিয়াদ। আসলেই ব্যক্তিগত অর্জন নিয়ে খুব বেশি ভাবেন না রিয়াদ। তাই এই সিরিজেও তাকে ৮ নম্বরেই খেলতে দেখা যেতে পারে। আশরাফুলের জায়গায় জুনায়েদ সিদ্দিকী নামতে পারেন। ওপেনিংয়ে তামিমের সঙ্গে ইমরুল কায়েসের জুটি পাকাপাকি হয়ে যাওয়ায় জুনায়েদ নামবেন ওয়ান ডাউনে। এরপর আফতাবকে দেখা যেতে পারে। সাকিব তার আগের জায়গাতেই নামবেন। আর সাকিবের পর নামবেন মুশফিকুর রহিম। রিয়াদ আসবেন ঠিক তার পরেই। এই সিরিজে নবাগত সোহরাওয়ার্দী শুভকে প্রথম ম্যাচে দেখতে পাওয়ার কোনো সম্ভাবনা নেই। কেননা স্পিনার আবদুর রাজ্জাক আর শুভর মধ্য থেকে যে কোনো একজনকে বাছা হবে চূড়ান্ত একাদশে। অভিজ্ঞতায় সেখানে এগিয়ে রাজ্জাকই। তাই শুভকে প্রথম ম্যাচে বসে থাকতে হচ্ছে সাইড বেঞ্চেই। মাশরাফিকে ধরে চূড়ান্ত একাদশ ঠিক করলে বাদ পড়তে পারেন রুবেল হোসেন। তখন নতুন বলে মাশরাফির সঙ্গে দেখা যাবে শফিউল ইসলামকে।

As for batting, I want Mushi to go up and play 1st or 2nd down. Riad can play after Shakib. So my batting line up is,

Tamim
Imrul
Aftab
Mushi
Shakib
Riad
Nayeem

Mash

anyway this shomokal report is CRAP. he is saying riad will bat at EIGHT. and then when he is describing the batting order he brings him in SEVEN. he forgot that RIAD bats at EIGHT in TESTS and in SEVEN at ODI's. Naeem bats at EIGHT in ODI's. the reporter doesnot know what he is writing, he just has to write something as his editor ordered him. and he has to take care of the sale of the news paper.

My fear much like everyones else is how Mahmudullah will play. Yes he has scored runs at 8 but batting at 8 is completely different from 4. PLus he's only played a handful of games. But I guess it was something that needed to be done. Problem now is that if he gets out then there isnt anyone to arrest a collapse, nor is there anyone in the lower order to take advantage of powerplays something him and Naeem Islam combined well to do in the triseries. However if he plays well and is able to build partnerships like a proper batting line is supposed to do the days of BD top order imploding and having the lower order fight back could slowly be over.

Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh's captain, offered a respectful "no comment" when quizzed on the thorny issue of Strauss's absence from this tour, but his coach was unapologetically forthright. "People have their own choices to make, and organisations have their choices to make, about whether they come here or not," he said. "But my thoughts are that I hope it bites them on the bum at the end of the series. And that we can say 'don't come here next time as well'."

6. Mushy

8. Shuvo
9. Razzak
10. Shafiul
11. Rubel

Love that batting order and team, mate:). I think the English will struggle against three full-time spinners, plus Riyad and Naeem as back-ups. Aftab might fire 2-3 overs a game. Once Mash comes back, I'd rather see razzak dropped than anyone else.

I'd actually have Sakib at 4, and Riyad at 5, just to ease him into it. But maybe Sakib likes 5 better...It'll be a great contest , I tell you, all 3 matches.<b> Can even be 3-0 either way!</b> The English will struggle against the best potential spin combo in ODI history. Do not count the English totally out tho...they will no doubt practice against spinners. But Graeme Swann is prob the only good one to come out of their system for 20 years or sth. I just hope our batsmen do not get bamboozled by Swann. I'm more worried about top 3 in that regard.

Shafi will again shine no doubt. We can finally compare our two speed-stars against one of the best pace-bowling attacks going around. Very hard to compare the bowling attacks with the strategies being so different..its a battle of pace vs spin. In the end, this might be a series for the stars of the future..the stage is set for Suhrawardi Shuvo, Mr. new citizen Keiswater and the Pakistani- English fast bowler.

Let the sledging begin!

I hope I am wrong, but I don't have much expectations from Shuvo in this game. First international game is a huge thing for any player, Shuvo will probably play at his 60%.

Bangladesh can cause England problems

Match facts
Sunday February 28, 2010
Start time 14.00 (08.00GMT)

Big Picture
Given England's less-than-stunning one-day international record it is an oddity that they are the only nation not to have come a cropper against Bangladesh in any international fixture. They have been tested on occasions, although each time have managed to overpower their opposition. They will expect to do the same again, but may not find it the easiest of tasks against a side becoming more of a threat on home soil and showing some encouraging signs of development.

Of course that has been said of Bangladesh before only for them to slip back into bad habits and they do need to support the feeling of improvement with some results. A tour of New Zealand and the seamer-friendly conditions on offer there is hardly the ideal preparation, but conditions in Dhaka won't provide any surprises for Shakib Al Hasan's men.

In Shakib, Bangladesh have an outstanding cricketer and one of premier allrounders in the world game. He now carries a huge weight of expectation on his shoulders - as does every player in this country - but unlike the team's previous star name, Mohammad Ashraful, Shakib appears to have the mental strength to cope with the demands.

In one-day cricket Bangladesh have enough skill to upset England if the visitors don't hit the ground running and take the contest seriously. With Andy Flower in charge complacency won't be an issue, but this isn't the strongest possible England team and Alastair Cook, the stand-in captain, is under pressure to ensure against any upsets. A defeat in any of the internationals will heap pressure on Andrew Strauss's decision to skip the tour.

England, though, have prepared reasonably well with, as in 2003-04, a focus on fitness along with skills. The two warm-up matches were won with ease as the batsmen, apart from Kevin Pietersen, spent useful time in the middle and the fringe bowlers were given a chance to stake their claim. They should have enough to withstand the Bangladesh challenge, but it isn't the foregone conclusion it has been in the past.

Form guide (last five completed matches)
Bangladesh LLLLL
England WLWLW
Watch out for...
Shakib Al Hasan is Bangladesh's star man, but their top-order batting also packs quite a punch. Tamim Iqbal can be a destructive batsman on his day, as he showed when crashing India for 151 last month, and the one-day game is made for his flamboyant strokeplay. However, as with most Bangladesh batsmen, it's about moulding attack with defence and that's an area Tamim doesn't always get right. Often Jamie Siddons, the coach, is left exasperated with a soft dismissal but there is immense talent oozing through that flashing blade.

For England, boundary-hitting early in the innings remains a problem yet to be solved and Craig Kieswetter is set for his chance to show he's the answer. It's been a rapid elevation for a man who wasn't in the squad a week ago and is now on the verge of an international debut. His form for the England Lions was strong, but it was the 143 in the first warm-up match which has made his case irresistible. However, his call-up has provided a headache over the wicketkeeping position although Matt Prior is unlikely to be dumped from the line-up just yet.

Team news
Mashrafe Mortaza, Bangladesh's leading pace bowler, may not be risked for the opening match despite coming through the warm-up game against England for the BCB XI following his latest knee injury. Spin is likely to play a key role in their plans as they aim to exploit a traditional weakness of England in one-day cricket. The top order is missing Ashraful, but Shakib and Mahmudullah have both been in productive form of late.

Bangladesh (probable) 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Imrul Kayes, 3 Zunaed Siddique, 4 Aftab Ahmed, 5 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 8 Mashrafe Mortaza, 9 Abdur Razzaq, 10 Shafiul Islam, 11 Rubel Hossain

How quickly England's one-day plans change. Despite a victorious series in South Africa they are set to have another new opening duo. One change is forced with Cook leading the team in place of Strauss, but Kieswetter's form has put the cat amongst the pigeons and he will force Jonathan Trott out of the XI. With Prior probably retaining the gloves - for now, at least - the only other major question is one spinner or two.

England (probable) 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Craig Kieswetter, 3 Kevin Pietersen, 4 Paul Collingwood, 5 Eoin Morgan, 6 Matt Prior (wk), 7 Luke Wright, 8 Stuart Broad, 9 Tim Bresnan, 10 Graeme Swann, 11 Ryan Sidebottom

Pitch and conditions
Cook expects a "fair wicket" with scoring likely to be easier when the ball is hard. Stuart Broad has said he will use plenty of slower balls and cutters, as he did in Sri Lanka in 2007, so it could turn into a battle of attrition. Dew could be issue later in the evening and it was often a problem during the recent tri-series involving India and Sri Lanka.

Stats and Trivia
In eight ODIs against Bangladesh, England have not really come close to a defeat. On the 2003-04 tour they won all three matches by seven wickets. The closest they came to slipping up was in the most recent meeting, at the 2007 World Cup, when England made heavy work of chasing 144.
In that last meeting, Shakib hit an unbeaten 57 and Abdur Razzaq, who could play here, caused problems with his left-arm spin as he took 2 for 30 - his scalps being Strauss and Pietersen.
Only two of the England side have played against Bangladesh before - Pietersen and Paul Collingwood.
Quotes
"In our conditions we play really well, we're a developing team and growing in confidence. England need to be at their best to beat us and they've left a couple of key players behind so I'm thinking that could be the difference, but we'll have to wait and see."
Jamie Siddons, the Bangladesh coach, has the belief his side can prevail

"There's a bit more pressure riding on it but I'm really looking forward to that pressure. It's a hugely proud moment for me."
Alastair Cook is ready to lead England out in place of Andrew Strauss

Bro i dont know y people keep forgeting this, but Tamim and Zunaid have over the last few months had great partnerships. Ive always been a fan of Zunaid and Tamim. i like the look of this batting line up actually. Apart from i think Aftab should replace mushfiqur to enhance our run rate in the last powerplay overs 40-45 or 45-50.

I think tomoro will be a day for us to celebrate. After 10 years of suffering from international cricket tomorow will be the turning point for bangladesh. No longer will we be called the minnowers of the top level. No longer will the likes of Afghanistan aand ireland understimate us, and no longer will there be night i will sit on my bed and wonder y i watch bangladesh cricket.

February 27, 2010, 11:55 AM
I do not understand why aftab is being persisted with, sure he scored a hundred in the domestic games but there are other local batsmen who have scored many more hundreds consistently than aftab. Aftab lost his confidence, seems very nervous and out of form to me. He is unfit to play cricket for now.
You didn't watch any of the WC games?
Mo Rafique, Abdur Razzak and Shakib. It worked great at that time why not now at home conditions?
Back then razzak was at the form of his life and rafique was performing as usual. Today we no longer have rafique and razzak is out of form with his new action and although shakib improved his bowling, he can't take on a batting lineup all by himself. I really hope razzak does well, but it is very unlikely. Also, our two other all-rounders are batsmen and are mediocre bowlers at best, home conditions might them a bit but I don't expect much from them in terms of bowling I don't think their bowling will win us games.

i don't get this. so last series we leave big Z out of the ODI series, and make his a test specialist. and then this series he comes in to the ODI series? why? he was dropped from the ODI team for having horrible form, but did he even play any ODI matches after he was dropped? this is so stupid.

Totally agree. That spin trio of Rafique, Razzak (in form) and Shakib was the best spin trio for ODI's in the world at that moment. In that span of 30 overs, we usually gave up less than 120 runs and took a few wickets. How I miss those days.

If the pitch is indeed a minefield, or even just your regular slow pitch where the ball doesn't quite come on to the bat, then you need guys with copy book technique and the ability/willingness to play the ball late in your top order. Unfortunately, most of the guys in our top order lack at least one of the two.

I'm sure it will be a standard Mirpur pitch, our batting is hot and cold more often cold. Even if the top order clicks, our middle order won't we really need consistency in seeing the whole team click, over the recent months one aspect of our play has been good whilst another has cost us the game.

we will have one in shabbir rahman or noor hossain in 2-3 years time.

also we may see one of our greatest talent batting wise, who was just recently dropped from the national team, may make a return as a leg spinner.

R u talking about raqibul? yea I think so too. Also dont forget kapali. he is a good leg spinner.

Left arm offspinners (Shakib and Shuvo etc) are called SLAs. Left are legspinners (Idk any) are called chinaman bowlers.

no shakib is not a leg spinner. a leg spinner is usually right handed bowler. a leg spinner does what an offspinner would do to a left handed batsmen.
ex. kapali(legspinner) to Ashraful = naeem (off spinner) to Gamnbhir

if this pitch is indeed a minefield then i fail 2 see why they dropped roqibul..a 100 ball 60 would actually be a pretty good score on a minefield..a batsman like aftab will suck on a minefield..he needs a pitch where the pitch is flat and the ball comes well on the bat..even then the guy struggles..

The match times are too inconvenient. Bangladesh needs to switch to moon light saving time.

having both Big Z and Lazy Aftab in the team is such a foolish and stupid act by our management. Nayeed would have been a perfect pick

Here in england the timeing for 1st odi is very convenient. 8am start. Basically wake up in the morning, grab a bowl of cereal and switch the telly on. The only question 4 me is what will i c... Bangladesh 50/5 in 10 overs or bdesh 70/0 in 10 overs.... or bowling.

1. Right arm off spinners (we call them offies) = Ajmal, Swann...Naeem or Riyad even

2. Right arm leg spinners (we call them leggies) = Warne, Kumble....Ashraful or Kapali as well :-p

3. Left arm off spinners (we just call them SLAs I think..no other general term) = Rafique, Shakib, Vettori, Razzak, Enamul Jr, Enamul Sr, Shubho...lol are there any specialist SLAs outside of BD except for Vettori? I can't think of one.

4. Left arm leg spinners (I think we call them chinamen..correct me if I'm wrong ppl) = Remember Andre Adams from South Africa with that weird action (he played against us in I think it was 2003-04) also Ashley Giles and Murali Karthik from recent years......any current international Chinaman bowler, people?

why is it rare for left armers to be legspinners? It's normal for right armers to be a leggie or offie. so can't lefties be like that. do they have a disadvantage?

Leg spinners are generally right handed wrist spinners who tend to spin the ball away from the right handers. Any wrist spinners whose stock delivery is to bring the ball back into the right hander is known Right arm googly bowler[a rarity]
Left handed wrist spinners who spin the ball back into the right handers are known as left arm chinaman, named after a Chinese descendant West Indian left handed spinner named Puss Achong in the 40s. Examples are, Paul Addams, Brad Hogg, Beau Casson, Simon Katich, Dave Mohammed.
And our army of left handed spinners are often called Left arm Orthodox.
