..................




India will be extra cautious in winning the first World Cup Match. So, Bangladesh will have to play their best cricket ever to beat India. Even after that, Bangladesh will not be able to beat India - 2nd time around in a World Cup match. :onethephone:
In order for Bangladesh to beat India, coonsidering the above fact, Dhoni will have to declare himself unfit for the match, and not be included in the team. :D

Our weather gods are known to play some mischiefs occassionally but still didn't expect monsoon to arrive 2 months before time. No problem except that quite a few marriages are going to be impacted given that those two months leading to monsoon are the busiest for marriage activities. There goes the hopes for free food and drinks!

On the positive side, we won't have to face the scorching summer heats.

I also don't agree on the international weapon policy of Namibia, completely agree with your points.

I would also like to add, One of the most challenging use of SC magnets is in the LHC particle accelerator [6]. The niobium-titanium (Nb-Ti) magnets operate at 1.9 K to allow them to run safely at 8.3 T. Each magnet stores 7 MJ. In total the magnets store 10.4 GJ. Once or twice a day, as the protons are accelerated from 450 GeV to 7 TeV, the field of the superconducting bending magnets will be increased from 0.54 T to 8.3 T

I don't get it. If you are considerring India playing in Dhaka as their backyard then our Bangladesh playing in Dhaka would be their own bed room.
The question is, why would you let anyone win in your bedroom......you should be the king of your own bedroom.....that's where magic happens. :goal:

Guys, I am not a regular poster but a regular reader of all the
posts. Great forum for BD cricket fans.

I think BD has a big chance of winning the opening match against
India for the following reasons :

1. Ind will be under big psychological pressure. They will be hunted
down by the bitter memory of losing to BD and eventually out of
2007 WC
2. BD will have home ground advantage with big crowd support,
which can go a long way to boost confidence

3. BD spin attack is way better than India's and Mirpur wicket is
spin friendly. Recently BD spinners had huge success against NZ
and Zim in this wicket

4. Looks like after the surgery and rest Tamim is now more run
hungry than before. It was a treat to watch the way he was hitting
Zim bowlers out of the park. He enjoys hitting Indian bowlers,
mainly Zaheer and Bhaji. I think we are gonna see some new records
from Tamim's bat in this match

5. This match will be the biginning of the end of Sachin. His career
has to end at some point-cannot continue forever


As someone posted before history is not created without hope.
This time a better one will be created

with due respect i'll have to disagree with some of ur points

1.ok

2.ok

3.Ind batting lineup is nothing like nz and zim..we got success playing vs nz and zim doesn't mean that we can do the same thing to india..they are much better players of spin..our pace attack needs to step up..if india gets a flying start we can not hold them back with spinners like we did vs nz and zim

4.again zaheer and harvajan is nothing like zim bowlers..but also tamim have proved in the past that he can play well vs zaheer and harvajan..so it will be a good battle

5.Have to totally disagree with u there..sachins career is gona end at some day but that doesn't mean this match will be the beginning of the end of sachin..thats plain ridiculous

December 17, 2010, 12:07 AM
Brother Night-Wolf, thanks for analysis. But don't consider the point regarding Sachin's career too seriously. I was just kidding. Nobody can say when someones career gonna be over.

BD's pace attack with Mash, Rubel and Shafi is not too bad. India
to have a flying start will need bit of luck as well.

Bangladesh going to murder India today!

December 17, 2010, 09:24 AM
It seems some of us have forgot it's not Tamim vs India, it's BD vs India. Even if Tamim gets a 50 or a 100 thrashing Zaheer & Bhajji all over the park, other batsmen also have to step up to put up a challenging score on the board.

0.2 Khan to Tamim Iqbal, FOUR, oh what a beautiful shot! Lovely cover drive. On the up. High elbow. All along the ground. Wide of mid-off. Straight of extra cover. Where are the photographers?

Bangladesh going to murder India today!

India will be extra cautious in winning the first World Cup Match. So, Bangladesh will have to play their best cricket ever to beat India. Even after that, Bangladesh will not be able to beat India - 2nd time around in a World Cup match. :onethephone:
In order for Bangladesh to beat India, coonsidering the above fact, Dhoni will have to declare himself unfit for the match, and not be included in the team. :D

India will not only be extra cautious, they will be bit nervous too. And that is where Bangladesh will be in better position. Being extra cautious might back fire. If BD can play their best cricket and Tamim fires on the day another win over India is not unlikely.
After all we know "Pocha shamokei to pa kate". I am not willing to accept at the moment "Bangladesh will not be able to to beat India - 2nd time around in a World Cup match."

Since Mash may not play in the match, we need Rubel or Shafiul to step up. Although we might be overestimating India's ability to play spin, they certainly have weakness against the short rising deliveries.

<TABLE style="WIDTH: 488px" class=commsTable><TBODY><TR><TD colSpan=2>Hello! Welcome to the Bangladesh v India game. I am Sriram Veera, and along with George Binoy, shall bring you the proceedings today.

Toss Dhoni has won the toss and has choosen to bat. Shakib said at the toss that he hopes to restrict India to 280.

No humidity compared to previous match. No dew on the ground, so not much advantage of starting at 9:30. More even covering of grass on the strip. It's dry grass and a bit of bounce which will suit both batsmen and bowlers. Not much turn expected. All in all, a perfect ODI pitch, high-scoring.

Some interesting stats from HR Gopalakrishna (HRG) India and Bangladesh are meeting for the second time in the World Cup.
This will be Sachin Tendulkar's 35th World Cup appearance, the most by an Indian, and will overtake Javagal Srinath.

Dhoni is the 6th captain to lead India in a World Cup. The others are Azharuddin (23 games), Kapil Dev (18), Ganguly (11) and Venkatraghavan (6). Azhar owns theworld record for the most captaincy assingments in World Cup games.

Robin Uthappa, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Munaf Patel are making their World Cup debuts. For Bangladesh, except Mohammad Ashraful, Mashrafee Mortaza, the rest are making their WC debuts.

Bangladesh cricketers will wear a black band today in honour of lota Kamal, ex BCB dokholder as he has returnes to his old lota business due to lack of interest in cricket. I know the Bangladesh cricketing fraternity and the fans are deeply upset with the news. Banglacricket.com (http://www.banglacricket.com) is the place to visit if you are a Bangladeshi fan.

Cricinfo Magazine, which brings together the finest cricket writing in the world is now available as a digital download. Click here (http://www.zinio.com/offer?issn=cricinfo&of=zh01&ns=zno) for a special offer. Click here (http://www.zinio.com/express2?issue=198682117) to try it for free.

From Siddhartha's bulletin, 'Bangladesh decided to leave out Shahadat Hossain and choose Rubel Hossian, the left-arm medium-pacer. He will join Mashrafe Mortaza and in the pace-bowling department. They will rely on their trio of left-arm spinners in the middle-overs - Abdur Razzak's experience complementing Shakib and Shuvo.

Gombhir and Virender Sehwag are in the middle. It will be Mortaza who will have the first go at the Indians. Two slips in place for Gombhir. All set. Drum rolls... please ...Here we go.

Sehwag's feet - he doesn't ground his bat, he just jumped into the crease- are in. The collision didn't allow him to ground the bat. It is refered upstairs, not out is the verdict.

By the way, Ash came to bat @ number 7 and Mushfiq batted up in the order (Number 3 I think). If we have to take ASH again in the squad then why not in the position that work?

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/sports/cricket/cricket-world-cup-2011/news/Bangladesh-await-date-with-India/articleshow/7505096.cms
DHAKA: You can't miss him as you drive down from the airport to the heart of the city, for he peeps at you from hoardings, billboards, banners, posters, T-shirts and even gaudily painted rickshaws. Bangladesh cricket captain Shakib Al-Hasan is the most recognized face today in the land of Kazi Nazrul Islam and Surya Sen which is all set to co-host World Cup 2011 along with India and Sri Lanka.

Indian players will not find the impish smile on Shakib's face very amusing when they land here on Thursday.

It is almost as if Shakib is having a chuckle ahead of his team's lung-opener against India, whom they had embarrassed big time in 2007.

The hype surrounding the India-Bangladesh match here is unbelievable. Even though Shakib's team is scheduled to play all their group league games at their home ground, it's the match against MS Dhoni's Men in Blue that has become a rallying point for a nation that boasts a population of 15 crore.

And Bangladeshi fans have pinned all their hopes in this versatile all-rounder, who has been in peach form of late.

The slogan on a hoarding —- Bangladesher shaan, Bangladesher praan, Shakib Al-Hasan (He is our pride, he is our life, he is Shakib Al-Hasan) sums up Bangladesh's love for their captain, who incidentally had successfully anchored the chase of India's meagre tally of 191 when the two teams had met in the last World Cup.

Shakib, of course, should consider himself lucky because had it not been for an injury, it would have been the flamboyant Mashrafe Mortaza at the helm of the Bangladesh team instead of him.

Mortaza is easily the best all-rounder that Bangladesh have produced since joining the big league, and also the most popular. Knee surgeries can be tricky and after putting both his knees under the knife, Mortaza has struggled to regain peak fitness. A breakdown just before the World Cup squad was announced, prompted the selectors to dump the pace-bowling all-rounder, whose four for 38 had virtually knocked India out of the World Cup.

Mortaza, who was confident of bouncing back quickly from his latest injury, was crestfallen at being left out. He took it so badly that he has been living like a recluse ever since. Fans in his hometown of Narail were so incensed that they called a hartaal (bandh) in the Khulna division.

If a Bangladesh Cricket Board official is to be believed, a few days back Mortaza at least started retuning important calls. He has also 'assured' the BCB that he would show up at the Shere-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, near Dhaka, on Saturday to cheer for the Bangla Tigers against India.

Even if Mortaza fails to turn up, Shakib and his boys will not be short on support as every seat in the 25,000 capacity stadium has been sold out. And rest assured, there will be as many fans in the vicinity of the stadium to lend their voice to every Bangladesh appeal to make the atmosphere more electric.

The organizers have promised a colourful opening ceremony and there is a rumour that Shakira may put in a surprise appearance, but make no mistake, everyone here is waiting for the real 'whacka, whacka' on Saturday when the action begins.

But that will be the unbecoming of Bangladeshi batsmen, how can you expect them to bat on minefield if they can't do it batting track?


One thing is you can ask curator is to prepare a pitch that will hold for 3 hours and then becomes a minefield. Then start praying that Shakib wins the toss. :D

lol. Nah today was just a practice session. Doesn't count for anything. I personally want a difficult wicket to bat on because I feel we have a better bowling line up than India. We should play to our strength. India's strength is their batting and it would be foolish to present them with a batting paradise regardless of our batting abilities.

Is it gonna be like Tri-Series where BCCI will get to control out pitches?

is it? news for me. Any source which claimed BCCI did this?

If they did it will be a new low for them(Probably forget to do in South Africa??), we are quietly confident of winning in any type of pitches :P

BTW, this is seriously going to be our main thread for the match? Well can we at least design it, and mods can pick the best one on the 1st post? Hoping that first ever BC-member brings us some luck and love.

Go for it .... I like the idea.

Will create a thread where people can demonstrate their creative prowess. The best one will be chosen and one of us will edit the first post here.

lol. Nah today was just a practice session. Doesn't count for anything. I personally want a difficult wicket to bat on because I feel we have a better bowling line up than India. We should play to our strength. India's strength is their batting and it would be foolish to present them with a batting paradise regardless of our batting abilities.

Thats wrong brother because you can restrict India to 214 only to find out your team bundled out for 176 like Aussie did in warm-up match. Regardless of the pitch if a team performs with their hearts out they can win against anybody, thats what Bangladesh needs to do.

BTW no matter what the pitch is on 19th we are quietly confident on winning :)

I don't have the link on me, it's been more than a year. Can someone give him the link please?

But yes, BCCI, and Nimbus did want more batting friendly pitches, so game lasts all 50 overs (just like how they do it in India, flat pitches = all 5 day test, each teams bats only once, Test ends in a draw = BCCI Rich). Scores were above average on that series, usually Mirpur's pitches are known for low scoring cricket. Just look at the scores from series before and after that Trio series.

I don't think they forgot to do that in SA. They already made them not use UDRS, which costs them a test (you may disagree to that last part), they couldn't have both end of the stick. Or may it was either-or deal - flat pitches or no udrs? :D

And I have no doubt that India can win in any type of pitch, it us that I am worried about. I want the best condition for our team.

With all due respect to your bowling line up brother if we restrict India to 214 then I really don't see the Indian bowlers causing any trouble for us unless we self destruct. Indian bowling is pretty ORDINARY.

They may not have a power-house in bowling department, or their bowling attack may not be as strong as other top teams, but they can be tricky.

Like you said self destruct. Our batsmen will give their wickets away to no-namers any day, so it's not really a matter of how strong or weak the bowling line-up is.

I agree and our batsmen can do that even on a perfectly fine batting track whereas the Indian team won't. Hence the best chance of us pulling off a victory is to have a bowling pitch that will grip and turn and have uneven bounce and hold up and do all those crazy things! Then our bowlers can come to the party and the match suddenly becomes an even contest!

For the match against India I hope Bangladesh use Shafiul, Nazmul, Rubel, Shakib and Razzak as the 5 bowlers. India are the best at playing spin so I don't want to see Riyad, Naeem, Shuvo etc getting demolished by the Indian batsmen. Shakib and Razzak are two of the best ODI bowlers so they should be good enough to limit the Indians. I want to see Shafiul and Nazmul open the bowling and also these two should be bowling the "death overs". Rubel should predominately bowl late on when the ball is reversing. With Razzak and Shakib filling in the middle overs. Maybe a bowling plan such as this can be used:-

0-14 overs: Shafiul (7), Nazmul (7)
15- 20 overs: Razzak (3), Rubel (3)
21-30 overs: Razzak (5), Shakib (5)
31-34 overs: Razzak (2), Rubel (2)
34-44 overs: Shakib (5), Rubel (5)
45-50 overs: Nazmul (3), Shafiul (3)

Unless Zaheer and Harbhajan takes 8/9 wickets together, there won't be a good bit of chance for India to rescue 2 points in the standings table having scored 214 :D:D Yes I know what Chawla did against the Aussies.......but isn't it true that everyone doesn't get a good day out of every match? And in the same way Tamim won't also score 0 everyday! :D:D:D:D And ''Captain Fantastic'' doesn't also have the habit of failing every other day.

If Bangladesh want to win against India in their current form, they have to take advantage of India's weaknesses, The indian pace bowling isnt that impressive, except for zaheer, everyone else is so-so, their main bowling threat are their spin bowlers harbhajan,piyush and ashwin, so we need to target the pace bowlers and play the spin bowlers cautiously

The Indian batting lineup doesn't seem to have any weaknesses according to me,so we cannot win them in that department and that's something we have to consider when planning our tactics, but their fielding is also one of their weaknesses, we must field excetionally well to stop the run flow as much as possible. Our pace bowling looks really fragile and we dont have the pace to trouble them but Indian batsmen are known to have problems against the short ball, so that's something we can do, bowl short...

These are some of the tactics that i thought might be useful because if we go into that match without any plans, the Indian team is too good at the moment to lose to us

Take the match against India as a preparation match against Ireland.

Rightly said allrounder. Why are we so emphasizing on the India match? Is it that we won't be able to go to next round if we can't beat India? It is the opening game I understand. All our excitement and enthusiasm are based on that match. But don't forget India are no.2 in odi ranking and we are no.8. Win against India won't come everyday, it supposed to be the other way around. All we can do is try our best and put up a good fight. Then we will see what happens. This is not a do or die situation. Our main focus should be on Ireland, Netherlands and WI matches. We shouldn't be too upset if our boys can't play exceptionally well against India.

I think that's going to be key for us. Watching NZ bat is making me hopeful that we could take on their seamers. Zaheer seems to be the only bowler that could really trouble our batsmen. Munaf, Sreesanth and Nehra seem inconsistent and Tamim is capable of smashing them. Tamim really needs to get off to a good start and smash the pacers while Imrul should focus on giving as much strike to Tamim as possible. Zunaed should also come out firing and hit the pacers away.

I think I've got the perfect plan for the indian match, we should make the pitch lush green with grass, india's pace attack is weak and their main strength are their spinners, this type of pitch would render their spin useless, i know that also applies to us but we should play 3 pacers and i think our pace attack might be slightly better than theirs, also i think the only type of pitch the Indian batsmen would struggle on is a lush green one with lots of grass,so that the ball is swinging...

If we make a dry and dusty batting friendly pitch, we're doomed becoz their batting and spin bowlers are too good, We're playing at home so we should take full advantage of this fact

IMHO

Well green pitches can backfire against BD too, on a assisting pitch Zaheer and Nehra can be very effective, we have seen that in SA and Eng.

Indian batters can and have managed against SA /Aus and Eng pacers before on a green pitch. Does BD really have that quality of a pace bowlers though ? i guess not yet.

Again the best chance of BD will be their strength, bat against spin and bowl their strength, spin

It will be important for Bangladesh to bowl first if they win the toss, as India is most vulnerable when setting up a total with the pressures of a championship hanging in the balance.

I am confused as I thought batting first (assuming we win the toss) will be the way to go (as long as it does not rain), specially under the light. But then I read this article by al-furquan bro...

India finishes their warm-up with a thumping win over NZ (impressive score of 360/5).
Bangladesh finished their warm-up with a disappointing defeat to the Pak.

Bangladesh will clearly be the minnow against India on the 19th....... and thats what gives me HOPE...

BD will fight till the end... mark my words..and it will be a battle of nerves.... i say the match is 50-50.. .practice match performance is nothing...compared to the nerves to play the first of the WC match..

btw what bout Bangladesh having pressure in front of their home crowd..? can it act against them..?

India won both of practice matches batting first. They are capable of setting a big total.

Question: Is Bangladesh capable of stopping India below 250 by bowling first? If yes, then they should bowl first. If no, then they should bat first and try to score 275 and up.

Probably practice match was planned. Siddon had a plan to lose against Pak with big margin, so that India will take BD lightly. "They lost against poor Paki team... ha ha ha" - says Shewag and BOOM, BD just get their claws in the real match. BD might have an edge. That's my theory and (iamtryingtoforgetthatpracticematch)

India is the contender of the WC along with Sri Lanka IMO. So, chances of Indias' win is much higher. Though it's cricket and anything can happen in a given day. If Tamim shines, the match is lost for India IMHO as every othe Tiger will be motivated by the result and when they believe they will win it.

I don't think Raina will be making it to the squad by replacing Yuvraj. Yuvraj has been doing quite well with the ball, so he's probably gonna be considered ahead of Raina who's form is not speaking for him either!

And yeah, Munaf might be there instead of Sreesanth/Nehra.

Spot on bro. I'd add "fielding from Nehra and Patel" as major Indian liabilities, and "ShakibTamim-dependency" as our major batting liability alongside guys who block full-tosses and half-volleys and can't rotate the strike with ease.

This Indian Batting line up looks too strong, the BD players better get ready to chase or make near 300 to win this one. One BD batsman must score a century, lets hope someone can do it.

Munaf improved his fielding not great but nothing like the "waste of time" Nehra.
I don't think Zaheer will play the OP match , they might probably want to rest him another week (not recovered till yesterday), this gives the chance to Nehra, india's premium bowler sorry pie thrower.

I don't think batting is a problem for Bangladesh , its the self-belief, even after whitewashing NZ they are not believing in themselves.

If Bangladesh batsman don't score runs of our pie throwers, I am sorry sir I am going to rate your team very low.

@senman: Munaf during the practice matches, especially last night, was appalling on the field. Slow, uncoordinated and positionally clueless, he outNehra-ed Nehra.

Frustrating to see our on fans spreading such stereotypes. We have a pretty decent bowling to compliment our batting lineup. Zaheer, Munaf, Praveen are all good in limited over format. Add Bhajji and Ashwin and you have a very formidable bowling attack.

is it did you see the practice match??, only decent bowling was by spinners

In the first match the newcomer John hasting outbowled our premium bowlers

Praveen is out of the world cup have you heard?? forgot?

Zaheer injured not yet played after injury so bound to be rusty in first match, Munaf and nehra were throwing pies, only decent bowler was sreesanth he too was expensive.

Our strength lies in spin but how many matches do u think we can hide our fast bowlers?They don't bring anything to the team, can't bat , can't field, cant even bowl whats the use??

When I say pie throwers I am pointing to Nehra and Munaf, man they were so awful

I am ready to apologize if they prove me wrong but i dont see how, our matches will be won by spinners and zaheer,.

Nehra and Munaf are there to provide runs for the opposition.

Zaheer and Munaf are in form, and atleast one of them will play. And our strength has always been spin bowling, and we're pretty good at that department. So what if we don't have a lee or steyn? If we're good enough to defend 220 against Australia, I'm happy about our attack.

Shakibrulz,

brother we used lot of spinners in that match Chawla , Ashwin, Bhajji and then part timers

In real match our team setup was always like 7 batsman 1 spinner three seamers

unless they throw out Nehra and somehow bring in another spinner, I dont thinkl any of our matches will be easy.

What if we play against SL? Nehra, Munaf, Sreesanth are liability.

I am not only thinking of this match but going all the way, praveen injury totally out-balanced our team.
