unlike one dayers, and now even test matches...none of our players seem to have any idea of how to play this format. a total of 130 or even 140 is not a total at all unless its the most batting unfriendly track there is. you need 160 to even be competitive, and 170-180 to think of a cruising win.

our best shot is chasing, because we have no idea of how to set even a low total. 166 against barbados is nothing. at least if we chase, the players will bat with an equation on their minds.

Then you come earlier to open the thread. If you want to open one so badly, you come here after the 1st game and make a properly desined match thread. If you can't do that, then stop bitching.

BTW, good luck to Bangladesh on Saturday, InshAllah we will have a close match.

Nyce!! But you open it way too early, i wont even get a chance

here are some tips.

stay on the BC forum for the whole pak vs BD t20 match.

when the second innings starts open the page for a new thread and start writing ur match thread.

when 10 overs remaining of the match stay alerted. constantly keep refreshing the bangladesh cricket page and the match thread to check out whether somebody else have posted already or not. if not press the submit thread button as soon as u see that the pak vs BD match result is now a forgone conclusion and ppl are losing the interest in the match.

u may post a match thread very early. but it does not look good. the best time to post a match thread is when the match before its result is almost decided and people are losing interest and looking forward for the next match.

There used to be forum decorum on when is the right time to make a MT, all that stuff went out the window.

We probably the same chance maybe even a better chance of winning via reckeless Agression, than this lets play 20 over routine. AKA "playing scared"

"Dont Afraid to be Great" thats all I have to say to the Tigers.

S Islam 2
Mortaza 1
Razzak 3

I am letting Riyad bat up the order. He is one of those players, who needs time to get going. Once he is set, he can do some magic. So he should bat up at 3 if the 1st wicket falls quickly. He looks miserable when he bats during last 3-4 overs. He should be our Kallis, or Shiv. But I cant see him opening, so #3. (just for T20, not ODI)

His instant bod-dua destroyed many previous BC rude mouths. Please salaam him, show deep respect and love everytime you see Kalpurush da's avatar on the screen., we all do, these are some of the unwritten rules, laws of BC. The name Kalpurush in BC is one of the most sacred words, we associate it with the humblest, kindest and politest soul in BC, hang in there, you shall see.

with Aftab Ashraful (Although he has scored some runs in the warm ups), out of form Shakib and no Tamim, I can clearly see top order collapsing like a pack of cards. And then we'll see Mushfiq and Mahdulluah repairing/dragging the batting to somewhat total before our bowlers get thrashed by the opposition.

The key is avoiding silly mistakes and play to our potential. I don't see any reason to get afraid of any opponent as they both seem to be vulnerable on a given day. So, Twenty20 means a good 7/8 overs and you reap the reward.

Best of luck to the men in red and green. :fanflag:

I was just watching the Bangladesh vs India highlights and realized that overall we played a pretty good game that day..we really put good pressure on India..they didnt lose 2 many wickets and give full credit 2 them because they planned their innings really well but still mash, shakib, mahmudullah, naeem all bowled pretty well..rubel and shahadat leaked way 2 many runs and think this will be the crucial point..I'm confident that mash will bowl well but we need another pacer that can deliver..thats where we are really struggling..If you ask me I would probably have Shafiul in because he has the pace and line/length..rubel and rasel I really dont have much confidence in..I think having 2 pacers is good enough 4 us especially in this format..

Now about out batting in that game zunaed was extremely impressive in that match..2 bad he was not selected 4 the world cup this time..the guy really has some powerful shots in his arsenel..hopefully imrul delivers..now talking about the innings..we started off strong but like the usual we collaped..and the man behind the collapse? Yes it was ash..it was disheartening the way he got out..was a great catch in the end but wasnt the shot we needed..that was really the breaking point 4 us..had he continued with zunaed until at least the 10th-12th over we could have really put India on the backfoot..then shakib and zunaed got 2 very poor shots which killed us as well..then mahmud, mushfiq and roqibul were disappointing..

Overall we really need the pacers 2 not leak 2 many runs..its very crucial that we bowl decent in the death overs..afridi is as dangerous as yuvraj and can pull off a big cameo that could take the game away from us..so our pacers need 2 focus on the basics..as for the batsman..tamim needs 2 play a big innings..and we cannot afford 2 collapse..the batsmen need 2 play with cool heads..if we can do that then I can see us winning the match..

If Bangladesh had vsed zim we probably wud've won, zim are threatened by us. We could be in the super eights as being "A1" But does anybody know if Tamim Iqbal will, play we really need him, if he doesnt bd shud move mahmudullah up to 3 or 4

If Tamim doesnt play, i can close my eyes and write on a contract that bangladesh looses their 40% chance of winning right there. Add the failures of Aftab (if he plays) and Shakib ( in batting .. c'mon when was the last time he played a big innings ? one with England ? psshh ) Guess We are down to mahmudullah in that case. But these analysis dont worry me at all because i know T20 is not a kind of game that you can predict anything before the game. But what worries me is the fact that we never seem to identify the proper pace the innings should be played

Chalak-Shah bhai, IPL does not care about the quality of the players. They care which country they are from, if you even try to convince me that Martin, Lumb, Bond, Smith etc are better players than Shakib, Tamim, I would go so mad that I would run in the streets tearing my hair off. And I hate how getting chance in the IPL is now thought to be the ultimate goal of players.

Remember one thing, Tamim Iqbal =/= Bangladesh Team ... He is one soldier among many (maybe one of the best soldier). He is responsable for the batting unit so bowling unit also have to click at the same time if BD wants to Win a match or 2

Razzaq wont do much harm. I am concerned about Shafiul and Rubel. These two might be quite and swing-capable, the are 0% prepared. So our bowling line up will have Mash, Rasel and Lalla.

I wonder what will happen to Shuvo:confused:

i fear with raj. he may be a match winner or match looser.

it is sure opponents may give shakib some respect and will attack raj. so raj has to be careful and concenetrate on off stump line.

i think the gros islet pitch should be a good one for mash, rasel, shak, raj, shuvo line up.

in barbados may be shuvo replcaed by rubel and rasel replaced by shafiul will help.

The fear for Bangladesh team is fear itself. Zimbabwe is really a team that we should model!! They are fearless, tenacious and never gave up and stuck to their basics and stuck with the core squad of players who are not hyped nor are arrogant in their approach. They beat the world champion teams and I would want them to show the rest of the world that T20 is the great equalizer for cricket. While none of their players got an opportunity in the money making celebrity show called IPL, Zimbabwe team showed the true essense of cricket.

On the other hand, Bangladesh team is the real unpredictble team... A flop Shakib/Tamim/Naem will bring down the team whilst an in-form Ashraful/Mashrafee/Rasel/Tamim will annihilate and crush any Aussie/Pak attack. We just dont know what our players will do..

Lets just hope they dont turn up to play Test cricket tomorrow!

They all need to play their NATURAL game throwing caution to the wind. I would rather have them getting all out for 100 while trying to post 160+ then settling for a "usual" 120+. Against quality sides 130 isnt defendable even if we have Warne or Murali amongst our ranks. They need to play as a team and not for individual glories/stats.

Rubel got to play and bowl at full tilt. Rasel I think has lost his mojo and in T20 all the batsmen will fancy him right from the word go. Therefore, I will play Rubel over Rasel unless the pitch is absolutely tailor-made for Ras.

140 to 150 would be a winning score.

According to prothom alo, Tamim will play, regardless of the amount of pain. He will probably take some pain killer injections and go out there and fight it out like a tiger. Yet if anyone doubts the commitment of the players............

I dont think it will be wise to play with Tamim if he is not cured well.Consequences can turn very bad at any time.

Tamim should take rest and do not need to take painkiller as much. We need him for England tour, not very much in this fun cricket.

Yes, Tamim should not take too many risk. Important tours are coming ahead.

May 1, 2010, 04:30 AM
Following are the reasons why Bangladesh should not win today:
1. Tamim injured- he's our best batsman in this format, even if he's never scored runs. Even if he plays, he won't be the same.
2. Tamim was our one stable batsman in top 3...now we have none. In middle order, we'd have Sakib Aftab and maybe Ash..not reassuring. Mushfique can take us to 120 from 60-odd. He cannot take us to 170.
3. Naeem takes ages to get going, and he bats too low. Hence he'll be useless..by the time he goes in we'd be 5 down after 12 overs.
4. A lot depends on Ashraful getting a good start and using powerplays. Depending on him isn't good.
5. Rubel and Rasel both did very bad in warmups. Shafi wasn't doing that well in T20s. that only leaves Mashrafee.
6. Mashrafee is still recovering mentally from that injury, and yet he's still our best pace bowler.
7. Other than Sakib, no bowler can be relied on. Razzak needs to take wickets if we are to have any chance.
8. Pakistan's under pressure, and that's when they'll deliver. They also lost to Zimbabwe which takes the complacency factor out of them.

Why we should win:
1. Its on a slow track. So suits our spinners and batsmen.
2. Not many of us are optimistic. I am definitely not. This is when things happen. Not that I am saying it will, and thus jinxing it.

Finding the right combination and right place will be the key to success, doesn't matter who the opposition is. We've seen this in IPL where a good team can lose for not getting the right combination.

Pakistan XI:
Kamran Akmal+
Mohammad Hafeez
Salman Butt
Shahid Afridi*
Umar Akmal
Misbah-ul-Haq
Fawad Alam
Abdul Razzaq
Mohammad Sami
Mohammad Aamer
Saeed Ajmal

They have gone for the extra batsman. And while including Butt may seem like the wrong move I think it could pay off for them. He has a good record against Bangladesh and this type of pitch suits him.

May 1, 2010, 05:46 AM
Please, PLEASE don't say that Tamim Iqbal is not playing. According to Prothom Alo, he is playing but.......they did not get to know how much pain he was feeling when faced with the pace......beshi betha lagle to khelbe na.....BDr ki hobe?
But I would advise him not to take the risk of playing if it hurts too much....this type of injury can sometimes turn out to be very serious if not taken proper care and rest.

Wishing BD all the best in their match, even if they do not win, fight a good fight, dont play like the Irish against the Windies. I felt sorry for the Irish lads.

Awla
May 1, 2010, 06:16 AM
If Tamim is not 100% fit, then it'll be wise not to play him....just about a week ago..in IPL final Sachin was in under same condition...he played the match by taking painkiller..but his 100% didnt come that day(40 odds from 47/48 balls)...mayb same case can happen to Tamim & also can cause him serious Injury in future....U cant risk a player for a match...others have to be confident about that they can also deliver....if there is no self-confidence..there is no meaning of playing

Hopefully we highlighted the weaknesses of the Pakistan line up in the warm up match and Bangladesh can show why the so called lesser teams (Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) can beat the best.

Well if you havent noticed..the team thats a minnow in our group is us..of course its hard 2 admit that but we are minnows still..unless we can start consistently winning against big teams then we will always have the minnow tag attached 2 us..of course we have improved a lot and we are well on our ways 2 not having the minnow tag anymore..
