Do you think it's possible to win 4-0 against this side? Please vote, would be nice to see if the expectations of fans & team match. For me, YES it's possible. But not sure if our team can do it.

"Now the 4-0 [result] is very possible," Shakib said. "We played good cricket in the last two games but we want to improve our performance in the next two because there are lots of areas to improve.

Shakib spoke a bit too early. Should have spoken after winning the 3rd match. Still 2-2 very much possible.

Well, according to many philosophers you can do anything if you try, but then again some say that it is not possible to do everything because life is hard. So, I am really confused: well, I think that it is possible for an able and young team like Bangladesh to accomplish anything and everything, but they just have to avoid making the mistakes which they usually do, like misfielding. If they continue playing as they had in the first two ODIs....yes it's possible! But I too think Shakib-Al-Hasan said it out too early...because New Zealand may also return with more strength and power....in that case, Shakib would be embarrassing all of us.

Shakib just said it is very much possible. And as he believes so. He didn't say its bound to happen or "we will"

I dnt think so. Its a psychological pressure to NZ team as next match is the most vital in deciding series win. :)

If NZ wins the next match, the pressure will be back on Bangladesh again.

It is very possible if BD players can sustain their form, NZ batsmen are having vodoo effect. If BD can get McCulm out early, they will win. We havn't even bowl Riyad 10 overs :)

October 12, 2010, 07:11 AM
I believe its very possible that we win..if the spinners continue their good work and the pacers don't leak too many runs then I can see us winning..the Kiwis batting is just pitiful and I just don't see them recovering..they got huge issues against spin and it doesn't look like a quick fix..as long as the batsmen don't screw up we should be fine..

October 12, 2010, 07:13 AM
NZ is a very professional team with lot of talented players.We have won consecutive matches against them but it will not be wise if we disregarde their strength.No i want to be realistic first we need to secure the next match and win the series then whatsoever.So voted for no.
I am just thinking about a series win.Age aam bachai pore sala dekhbo.

I think the only way Bangladesh will make a mark in the cricket world is by issuing bold statements and then making them reality. Moreover this way New Zealand will be under even more pressure.

I also think he mentioned about 4-0 little early. This might charge up NZ rather than putting mental pressure on them. Just think of it this way...If Irish Captain Says winning against BD is very much possible, wont you get charged up a bit? He could've said it in a different way. I hope we can make it 4-0. If we can do so, can we get into top 8??

He won't embarrass me. There is nothing wrong with having a positive attitude. We've already defeated them twice in this series and we are yet to be defeated. Going for 4-0 is not unrealistic, its very much possible and if we do fail, atleast we'll know that the team came out to win and fought till the very end. As long as our players stay confident and don't play games for a respectable defeat I'm fine with it. We should always look to win.

We looked good on the 2nd match. We did look extra special in the past as well. We all know what happened next.

Reminder, we still haven't won 2 consecutive matches in a row, technically. So we still have not broken our ritual yet.. So I can't vote

If I were Shakib (or even Ponting or Dhoni) I would have said... lets win the match next and win the series and we will go from there. Shakib was just a little immature to say this and now it will come and bite us in the back. Vettori will have his last laugh!

Shakib may have been playing semantics. Possibility and plausibility are not the same. Yeah. it might just be possible. Yeah, it is even possible we might even win the next 10 ODIs. But how plausible is it? Probability may be minuscule but not zero. :)

October 12, 2010, 09:17 PM
I am hopeful for 4-0. It will take more than 1 week of practice of New Zealand to beat all of Sakib, Razzaq, Shuvo, Mahmudullah.

cricket_king
October 12, 2010, 09:36 PM
In my opinion, this comment is a little prematured. With all due respect, the result is still most likely 2-2, even after the two consecutive wins, this pattern will continue if we win the next match. Chance of 4-0 is no doubt "possible", but it's remains highly unlikely.

Dilscoop
October 12, 2010, 10:53 PM
We all know it will end in 2-2, specially now that Shakib says 4-0 is possible.

I saw the press conference on TV where Shakib talked about this, he was asked whether he believes that it is possible to win the series 4-0? He replied he wants to win the series first and then think about it but at the same time he also said if we can rectify and minimize our mistakes from the last two matches then obviously 4-0 is very possible. So, reporter here understandably shortened his answer to spice things up.

Just what I thought, Bangladesh yet aren't good enough to declare that they can white wash NZ. Regardless of the outcome in the first two games, we must remember that NZ is still a very decent team and Bangladesh will have to play out of their skin to win the games.

its amazing to see such diversity in thinking. Not sure if this is such a debatable subject though. If Shakib said lets target 3-0 first, many would have said, 'oh he is not confident enough, not visionary etc'. When he says 4-0 is *possible*, he still got a problem. He could have said, 'we shall(will) win 4-0'.

After watching second game saying 'possible' is adequate respect to NZ. Target must be a 4-0, and if turns out 3-1, we shall take it. If BD ends up loosing next 2 games, this is still a great level series. Take it easy folks, BD made NZ team officials bowling spin at net, not good enough?

That was understandable. I guess there is no debate on how he should have said that. But do you believe that we can win 4-0 or no?

Not to prove Shakib was right or wrong in saying so. If he didn't believe that we could do it, he could have easily avoided the answer and stick to next match only.

Do you believe we can win 4-0 against this NZ team, given our perfrmance + ability and the way NZ is playing + adaptability to the conditions?

So first lets accept that what Shakib said is ok, and is taken out of context by many.

And realistically, I guess it would be 2-2, kiwis will give everything to avoid humiliation I think.

At least on paper, it is not a whitewash.
