We must fix our bowling strategy if we want to win a match in this WC at all. BD bowling is all too much focused on taking wickets without trying to restrict the run flow. The best strategy for a bowler in an ODI is to make it very difficult for the batsmen to score runs. This way the pressure will mount and wicket will fall.The Irish have a very formidable batting line up by the way.

Shafiul was shaky today. Except Rubel and Shakib other bowlers were ordinary. We have to think a lot about our bowling. Nice to see top order batters got runs. And we need back up players for Riyad and Naeem who are out of forms for years.

I would have Shakib at #4, Mushy at #5, and Rock at #6. I really liked what I saw from Shakib at #4. He kept rotating the strike and scoring boundaries. We need him to come in as early as possible in our innings. Mushy at #5 also looks good for him and he looked pretty good there and even though Rock wasn't great, he still did rotate the strike and have a SR of a 100.

That is so true, Ash is still the 'little kid' in the squad. I too was so upbeat on his performances but recently he's been disappointing to say the least! Instead i think Shahriar Nafees would be a better replacement for him. It would be strange to put him back into the game especially after all the chances hes been given. I know people still want to see that spark in him, but having him back will only put the team back. If anything it will demoralise some of the players currently in the squad

I'm sure we are gonna put up a much better performance in this one Inshallah, but Ireland's batting has been quite fantastic in all the practice matches, and in that respect, we won't be having a easy time if our bowlers bowl the same way that they did in the last match!

I think it will be a big test for the boys as well as the team management. No excuse will be sufficient if we lose to Ireland on our home soil.

This is a must win game and we should win comprehensively. I think we should keep the same squad as too much experimentation will create uncertainty within the squad which won't help our causes.

It is a day night again and let's hope we win the toss, and opt to field

I would replace one of them with Ash. He got mor strke than those 2. . And SN should also be tested but for now I am more interested to see Ash in the team for BPP

If Shahriar Nafees fails in the next match who will you replace him with? Bangladesh batted really well yesterday eventhough lower order didn't clicked. Its upto the fans to back the team and give them real confidence or chop and change and get everyone panicky, which is recipe for disaster.

I would play Nafees ahead of Naeem who failed with both bat and ball and bank on Nafees to get it right in a couple of games even if he failed against Ireland... Nafees is a squad member of the 15 and has earned his right to be a part of the final 11... He is a good player of spin and has two recent centuries under his belt one of which was while chasing 300+ total. I would prefer him over Ashraful...

February 20, 2011, 07:44 AM
I read in the newspaper Ireland team scouted Bangladesh yesterday, so probably they would have worked out one or two tactics against Bangladesh. Instead of changing the team its time to change the tactics,
If Bangladesh bat first:
Get 90 runs in the first 15 overs, milk the bowling from 16to 40 overs score at least 115~125 runs, then go berserk at the last 10 overs probably score 100 runs. Then open with spinners since Ireland practice on seaming wickets they will find it difficult to face the spinners.

If Bangladesh bowl first:
Open with spinners and go with full spin attack ,clean up the lower order using spin or pace contain them within 200 or 220
Tamim batted really well yesterday, he should be doing samething that try to stick around till the end, other batsmen should give Bangladesh blazing start and reach the target within 35 ~40 overs, thereby can offset the negative Run Rate.

Buddy the problem is India is the best players of spin, Naeem failed because he is not of the calibre of Murali. I bet he will do fantastically well against other teams, who have no clue against spin, the last thing you want to do is going with 3 seam attack or minus 1 spinner like Naeem against Eng or S.A

^ Now that's just silly. Opening with spinners have never worked, especially not for us, and that kind of underestimation will only lead to a loss. Ireland may find our spinners tough in our conditions, but there's no way it'll work if the ball barely spins, which will be the case if we open with spinners. 3 pacers and Shuvo ahead of either Naeem or Mahmudullah IMO.

There is no doubt Indians are the best players against spin...but thats no excuse for the half trackers Naeem was bowling. He averages 40 runs per wicket with the ball as a spinner and with the bat, his last 50 came against zimbabwe in Nov 2009... I don't think changing a player of his caliber makes that much of a difference to the squad if we are as good as we think we are....

3 seam attack might not be a good idea against Ireland I agree, but even if Nafees isn't picked I would prefer Shuvo as a specialist spinner ahead of Naeem

India shook our bowler's confidence. They need regrouping and start back again keeping basic right. Batsman should not relax either, they need to do their homework. India showed the way how to bat. Anything less than demoralizing performance against Ireland is not accepted.

Assalamu walaikum brothers....
Congrats to the bangladesh team for playing good cricket in the first match.The bowling cost us the match,as shakib said.I think shafiul was a bit nervous,hoping that he will come back strongly because he is player of that class.The biggest blunder bangladesh made against the India match was playing only 2 pacers,they should have played 3 pacers instead,because indians are a better players of spin.Lets forget that now,start from scratch against IRE.To be honest they are a dangerous team with good players.More than that they have nothing to lose,as their coach said they will target only specific teams.In my opinion their targets will be 1.NED 2.BAN 3.WI.If you go through their warm up matches it clearly shows that they played with good team effort,almost everyone contributed for them.I think 8 of their batsmans scored btw 40-80 in those matches.
IRE:
They have good batsmans in Porterfield,Joyce,Neilo'brain,kevino'brain,stirlin g,Botha.
Their bowling is also good with Johnson,Rankin,Langford smith along with spinners the 18 year old Dockrell, & White.
BAN:
For BAN to win against them they definitely need a wholesome team effort rather than individual performances from shakib or tamim. IRE are not good players of spin,so my team BAN against IRE is as follows
Tamim Imrul Junaed/Nafees Mushfiq Shakib Ashraful Mahmudullah shuvo/Nazmul Razzak Shafiul Rubel
Junaed innings against IND was not upto the level,once he tried the pullshot it went up in the air & a difficult chance was put down.During the introduction of spin he struggled a lot to pick up gaps.Not much footwork by him.Later he find gaps and got a good going but didn't utilise it.
There is no other position suited for Mushfiq than the no 4.He can't hit the ball hard.Also he is struggling to find gaps during PP.But he can rotate the strike well,also a better player of spin.Eventhough Raqibul played well he has to sacrifice his position for team's cause.
Many say Mahmudullah bowled badly but IMO he bowled ok.But he wasn't economical but he got a breakthrough.IMO both ASH & RIYAD are PP choices also they can bowl around 14-16 overs btw them with legspin & offspin which adds variety to the bowling attack.ASH is a player who can hit hard,pick gaps during PP he is a dangerous players if he gets going.
MY PATTERN WILL BE 4-1-2-2-2.
4 batsmans 1 genuine allrounder 2 allrounders 2 SLA's 2 pacers
Last but not least,the main thing which costs the game against IND is the 3rd WKT parternership btw SHEWAG & KOHLI.They rotated the strike very well,run a number of 2's,punished the bad deliveries to boundaries and they took the game away from us.I WANT THE BATSMENS TO PUT A SHOW LIKE THAT.
TAMIM promised he wants to be the top scorer in every match & he kept the promise in the very first match.Similarly SHAKIB promised that we will be able to beat any team other than the subcontinent teams. I want SHAKIB to fulfill the promise he made...
I finish here by saying the quote in one of our brothers profile said by Michael Jordan:"TALENT WINS GAME BUT TEAMWORK WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS"
INSHALLAH, ALLAH BLESS ALL OF US -Ameen

Tamim Imrul Junaed/Nafees Mushfiq Shakib Ashraful Mahmudullah shuvo/Nazmul Razzak Shafiul Rubel
Junaed innings against IND was not upto the level,once he tried the pullshot it went up in the air & a difficult chance was put down.During the introduction of spin he struggled a lot to pick up gaps.Not much footwork by him.Later he find gaps and got a good going but didn't utilise it.
There is no other position suited for Mushfiq than the no 4.He can't hit the ball hard.Also he is struggling to find gaps during PP.But he can rotate the strike well,also a better player of spin.Eventhough Raqibul played well he has to sacrifice his position for team's cause.
Many say Mahmudullah bowled badly but IMO he bowled ok.But he wasn't economical but he got a breakthrough.IMO both ASH & RIYAD are PP choices also they can bowl around 14-16 overs btw them with legspin & offspin which adds variety to the bowling attack.ASH is a player who can hit hard,pick gaps during PP he is a dangerous players if he gets going.
MY PATTERN WILL BE 4-1-2-2-2.
4 batsmans 1 genuine allrounder 2 allrounders 2 SLA's 2 pacers
Last but not least,the main thing which costs the game against IND is the 3rd WKT parternership btw SHEWAG & KOHLI.They rotated the strike very well,run a number of 2's,punished the bad deliveries to boundaries and they took the game away from us.I WANT THE BATSMENS TO PUT A SHOW LIKE THAT.
TAMIM promised he wants to be the top scorer in every match & he kept the promise in the very first match.Similarly SHAKIB promised that we will be able to beat any team other than the subcontinent teams. I want SHAKIB to fulfill the promise he made...

I don't think our batting is the issue here. We did not loose to India because of bad batting, we lost because our bowling was horrible guys. I think our batsmen did great by scoring 283 runs against a very strong team like India who in my opinion is one of the major contenders and actually may win this world cup. Our bowling was loose and below par at best. Our bowlers did not bowl at the right line and length and that allowed the Indian batsmen to post a mammoth total of 370. Our batsmen are not capable of scoring 371 runs against India, I think any of the top countries will have a hard time crossing that huge total of 370 against a very strong team like India. So I think we really need to concentrate on our bowling which I think was our weak link in our recent match against India. And lastly for God's sake please take the power play earlier when we have players in the middle set and batting well, please let's not wait too long to take our 2nd power play. We are just wasting and giving away our 2nd power play.

I have always said this that playing against India and playing 2 pacers where none of them being a fully fit Mashrafee Mortaza is impossible to win unless our batsmen pull a miracle. I really hope our coaches go with 2 pacers this time because its Ireland and not try to correct the mistake by putting a third pacer. That will be ANOTHER mistake. Naeem, Mahmudullah isnt doing anything with batting and little with bowling. So why not have a better bowler and same quality batsman?
so y squad would be,

Tamim
Imrul
Junayed
Shakib
Mushfiq
Nafees
Raqibul
Shuvo
Razzaq
Shafiul
Rubel

Exactly 5 bowlers but good ones. If we have to think about bowling 50 overs and vareity attack against Ireland, i dunt see why we are hoping for next round. Solid batting attack, stronger bowling attack....

Just saw Mashrafee's interview in cover drive prog of NTV. Bulbul (ex captain) asked him to take initiative and give the pacers some tips. Mashrafee agreed to do so. Apparently he has been telling Bulbul during yesterday's match about how Shafiul and Rubel should bowl to Tendulkar, Sehwag etc. .. well he was missed.

We need to beat Ireland by huge margin to get the NRR up.

India shook our bowler's confidence. They need regrouping and start back again keeping basic right. Batsman should not relax either, they need to do their homework. India showed the way how to bat. Anything less than demoralizing performance against Ireland is not accepted.

Tigers need to roar which can be heard in all four corners, from Dhaka to Delhi, Chittagong to Colombo.

Ireland will be infront of the wound tigers on February 25. By saying wound tigers i dont mean 11, they will face 25-30 thousands wound roaring tigers. I am afraid Irish players will get chills down their spines, there is no escaspe from that.

Playing both Nayeem and Riad is hurting is. They should try Nafees at 6 and Ash at 7. This will solve the BPP problem

Tamim
Imrul (loved him against India)
Zunaed
Mushy (finally the management understood where he needs to bat)
Shakib
Nafees (I know Team management will go with Rokibul)
Ash
Nayem
Shafiul
Rubel
Razzak (this is where he needs to bat at Doesnt even know how to hold a bat)

Everyone here knows SN is Bradman vs Minnows, It would actually be considered a stroke of genius to play him vs Ireland.

Everyone in the 15 has a role to play IMO, there not standbyes. If his role is just to play vs Ireland and Holland as a Minnow Specialist I bet you he'd take it in a heartbeat.

I feel like Shuvo vs Ireland can also help us again as a sort of Minnow Specialist (I think he can be effective vs Any non Asian Squad and should be seriously considered vs the other teams)

The players they would replace would have to know that this is a one off or a two off and they're not being dropped.

Ash also Averages 53 @ 79 SR vs them as well, this would be a good game to get him in the lower order and see if he can Increase the tempo

However this type of thinking is foreign to Shakib, and he's going to pick the squad he's most comfortable with.

How I would do it

Tamim
Imrul
Nafees (one off for Juniad)
Shakib
Mushy
Rock
Ashraful (one off/permanent Ryiad Naeem)
Shuvo (one off/permanent for either Ryiad or Naeem)
Razzak
Shaiful
Rubel

Win the Toss and Bat them out of the game

Assalamu walaikum brothers....
Congrats to the bangladesh team for playing good cricket in the first match.The bowling cost us the match,as shakib said.I think shafiul was a bit nervous,hoping that he will come back strongly because he is player of that class.The biggest blunder bangladesh made against the India match was playing only 2 pacers,they should have played 3 pacers instead,because indians are a better players of spin.Lets forget that now,start from scratch against IRE.To be honest they are a dangerous team with good players.More than that they have nothing to lose,as their coach said they will target only specific teams.In my opinion they targets will be 1.NED 2.BAN 3.WI.If you go through their warm up matches it clearly shows that they played with good team effort,almost everyone contributed for them.I think 8 of their batsmans scored btw 40-80 in those matches.
IRE:
They have good batsmans in Porterfield,Joyce,Neilo'brain,kevino'brain,stirlin g,Botha.
Their bowling is also good with Johnson,Rankin,Langford smith along with spinners the 18 year old Dockrell, & White.
BAN:
For BAN to win against them they definitely need a wholesome team effort rather than individual performances from shakib or tamim. IRE are not good players of spin,so my team BAN against IRE is as follows
Tamim
Imrul
Junaed/Nafees
Mushfiq
Shakib
Ashraful
Mahmudullah
shuvo/Nazmul
Razzak
Shafiul

Ireland says it will beat Bangladesh, spoil the co-host's party

DHAKA, Bangladesh — Ireland will beat Bangladesh and spoil the World Cup party for the co-hosts, wicketkeeper Niall O'Brien predicted on Monday.

Ireland will be starting its Group B campaign in Friday's match, while Bangladesh will look for a much-needed a victory after losing to fellow co-host India in Saturday's tournament opener

Form suggests a tight match: Bangladesh is a test-playing nation, but sits just one rung above Ireland in the one-day international rankings. The Irish beat Bangladesh in the 2007 World Cup, where they also defeated Pakistan and reached the Super Eight stage.

The Irish side, which has seven players with contracts in English county cricket, is not short of confidence.

"We have got a good enough team to win here Friday night, and that is what we are going to do," said O'Brien. "If that means spoiling the party, so be it."

Hosting the event for the first time means a lot to Bangladesh, a desperately poor country where few can afford much in the way of entertainment.

On the eve of the opening game, tens of thousands of people crammed the streets of Dhaka, singing and dancing.

O'Brien said it was a "shame" that the International Cricket Council is to limit the next World Cup to 10 nations, something that will make it much more difficult for ICC Associate nations like Kenya, Ireland, Netherlands and Canada to take part.

"We pride ourselves on being on the top of the so-called associates or minnows," said O'Brien, who hit 50s against England and Pakistan in 2007.

"If we can put in strong performances over the next few weeks and win matches against teams we ... should not beat, as we have done in the past, then that is only going to strengthen our case (to be included)."

As well as India, Group B also includes England, South Africa, West Indies and Netherlands.

With only four to qualify, competition for the final berth is likely to be intense.

"It is a must-win game for us," Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal told The Associated Press.

"If we can play to our potential, we can beat any side in the world, whether it is Ireland, England or the West Indies."

Iqbal top-scored with 70 in the match against India, but the runs did not come as quickly as the big-hitter would have liked.

"I can't come every day and hit everything," he said. "But just wait, you will see a quick-fire century from me before the end of the tournament."

প্রথম আলো


<!--
-->

মাঠে এসে কাল সাকিব আল হাসানের কাছে প্রথম শুনলেন খবরটা, ‘আপনি পরের ম্যাচে খেলছেন।’ একটু পর নেটে ব্যাটিং করতে যাওয়ার সময় কোচ জেমি সিডন্সও ডেকে বললেন, ‘আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে দলে আছ তুমি।’ মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল তাই ২৫ ফেব্রুয়ারির অপেক্ষায়। সব ঠিকঠাক থাকলে দেশের মাটির বিশ্বকাপে ওই দিনই খেলবেন প্রথম ম্যাচ।
১৯ ফেব্রুয়ারি ভারত ম্যাচের আগেও আশরাফুল ভালোভাবেই আলোচনায় ছিলেন। একটা পর্যায়ে তো এমনও শোনা গিয়েছিল, সাত নম্বরে নাঈম ইসলামের পরিবর্তে আশরাফুল থাকবেন একাদশে। শেষ পর্যন্ত সেটা না হলেও আয়ারল্যান্ড ম্যাচের দলে অন্তত এই পরিবর্তনটা নিশ্চিত। কে বাদ যাবেন—প্রশ্নে সিডন্সের চিন্তায় কাল পর্যন্ত ‘নাঈম কিংবা মাহমুদউল্লাহ’ ঘুরপাক খেলেও জানা গেছে, বাদ পড়তে যাওয়া ক্রিকেটারটির নাম নাঈম ইসলাম হওয়ার সম্ভাবনাই বেশি।
আশরাফুল ও শাহরিয়ারকে সিডন্স আগেই বলে দিয়েছেন, বিশ্বকাপে তাঁরা দলের ব্যাকআপ খেলোয়াড়। হঠাৎ জরুরি প্রয়োজনেই কেবল খেলার সুযোগ পাবেন। আশরাফুল যেমন এখন সুযোগ পাচ্ছেন মূলত পাওয়ার প্লের ব্যাটিংয়ের জন্য। সাত নম্বরে ব্যাটিং করবেন, এমনটাই তাঁকে জানানো হয়েছে টিম ম্যানেজমেন্ট থেকে।
আশরাফুলকে নিয়ে যে রকম পরীক্ষা-নিরীক্ষা হচ্ছে তাতে টিম ম্যানেজমেন্টের সুস্থ চিন্তার প্রকাশ ঘটছে কি না, তা নিয়ে প্রশ্ন উঠতে পারে। নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে গত হোম সিরিজে বাদ দেওয়ার পর জিম্বাবুয়ে সিরিজের আগে বলা হলো তাঁকে অন্তত প্রথম তিনটি ম্যাচে খেলানো হবে। অথচ সুযোগ পেলেন কেবল প্রথম ম্যাচটাতে! কানাডার বিপক্ষে বিশ্বকাপের প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচে ব্যাটিংয়ের সুযোগ পাননি। পাকিস্তানের বিপক্ষে পরের ম্যাচে একটা চার মেরে আউট হয়ে গেলেও আউট হলেন খুব ভালো একটা বলে। চার রানের ওই ইনিংস দেখে আশরাফুলকে যাচাই করারও কোনো উপায় ছিল না। এ ছাড়া প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচ নিয়ে সিডন্সের দর্শন শুনেও মনে হচ্ছিল, আশরাফুল হয়তো বিশ্বকাপের উদ্বোধনী ম্যাচটা খেলছেন। হলো উল্টো।
একজন ব্যাটসম্যানকে যদি প্রতিটি ম্যাচের আগেই মনে করিয়ে দেওয়া হয়, ম্যাচটা তার জন্য হয়ে যেতে পারে শেষ পরীক্ষা, এই ম্যাচে ভালো না খেললে ভবিষ্যৎ অন্ধকার, সেটা চাপ হয়ে বসে যায় বৈকি! আশরাফুল এখন সেই চাপ নিয়েই খেলছেন, খেলবেন আয়ারল্যান্ড ম্যাচেও। প্রতিটি ম্যাচেই এখন তাঁর ওপর থাকছে নিজেকে প্রমাণ করার চাপ। অন্য ব্যাটসম্যানদের বেলায় নীতি যা-ই হোক, তাঁর একটা খারাপ ইনিংস যে কোচ থেকে শুরু করে সাধারণ দর্শক কেউই মেনে নেবে না, সেটা আশরাফুলও এখন জেনে গেছেন। কে জানে, হয়তো এ কারণেই পূর্ণদ্যুতিতে দেখা যাচ্ছে না তাঁর ব্যাটটাকে। নির্ভার ব্যাটিংয়ের জন্য তো আগে প্রয়োজন নির্ভার আশরাফুলকে[/বাংলা]

Ashraful, when you go out to bat on 25th, just look around the stadium. There will be about 25k fans and all of them wants a cracka-jacka from you, just BELIEVE in yourself. Breathe and smile. Don't use the brain.

Don't get over confident about our batting line up. Yes they can score 300 odd, but at times they also end up scoring 180 odd. But yeah, having ASH doesn't give us a lot of confidence either!

Agree 100%. I don't know why our selectors and team management want to play 8 batsmen. Playing even 7 is a lot of batsmen. On top of that our batsmen from 1-5 are really dependable now. The only change in my opinion should be naeem/riyad for shuvo. We should bring back the SLA trio. also not keen at all bringin ash back in the lineup.

My prefferred team is :
1) Tamim
2) Imrul
3) Nafis
4) Rakibul
5) Ashraful
6) Shakib
7) Mushfiq
8) Riad
9) Razzak
10) Shafi
11) Rubel
I think we need mushi and riad down the order more then ash or rok, they will build the innings in upper order, We need 5 solid batsman, 1 wkt, 2 pacer, 1 spinner and 2 allrounder which are there, perfectly, Not for this irish match only, we have to go through all the way in this tournament in this way. Whenever mushi or riad play some good innings, everybody start talking, why are not we playing them in up to the batting order, but can't u see, dhoni is a good batsman but he didn't play before kohli or yuvraj. What I am trying to say is it doesn't mean that we have to push them up in batting order, they can contribute from the lower order too whcih is much concern of our team.

I was watching Ireland/England match. The British commentator was remarking that everybody will have to go through Bangladesh to advance to the next round. He particularly noted that Bangladesh game at Chittagong will be particularly hard for England. In response to this other commentator, Manjrekar, remarked that Bangladesh is highly overated. He stated that this is due to their recent successes at home. I was apalled by his remark! We beat England at England and WI at WI last year. Granted that we whitewashed NZ at home. But a whitewash is a whitewash. Is India' whiewashed of NZ is any less significant to them? Why did they even bother to play them. I would like to see if they can whitewash us at India.

7. Mushfiqur Rahim

After we finish this world cup we should look for a player who has muscles and is not short, and use him for the batting powerplay, giving him the license to hit hard. This will solve our batting powerplay problem :) (I am aware this is harder than I make it look)

We can't afford to have mushfiqur rahim at the batting powerplay.

Wish Mahmudullah could be trained to smash the ball at the batting powerplay. He has the potential. :(

That is so true, Ash is still the 'little kid' in the squad. I too was so upbeat on his performances but recently he's been disappointing to say the least! Instead i think Shahriar Nafees would be a better replacement for him. It would be strange to put him back into the game especially after all the chances hes been given. I know people still want to see that spark in him, but having him back will only put the team back. If anything it will demoralise some of the players currently in the squad

Second that..... Even if he comes in and wins a game for us... he will sink us rest of the tournament and we wont drop him cos he played that memorable innings. We also need to use our batting powerplay properly....... we wait too long to take it and by then the set batsmen r out.

No it's a D/N match. It's really confusing about what should we do if we win the toss actually.......Ireland batted really well in both of their warm up matches, so if we end up scoring 240-250 odd, the pressure would be on us and Ireland will believe that they are the favourites to win it from there!

On the other hand, if we bowl first and can't restrict them under 250 odd, it might well cause pressure on our batsmen and having the most terrible batsmen to bat in the PP, it's not gonna be easy for us to chase even 250 against them!

And not only Ireland.....we have to think about Ned very closely too, they have a very strong batting line up.....they were really unlucky not to win against Eng after scoring 292!

Coming from the last match my guess is Shakib was counting on the dew to cause the indian bowlers some trouble but i think that didn't quite as planned. On the other hand, he underestimated the indian batting strength and hoped to bundle them out less than 250 and probably wanted to repeat the heroics of 07 WC.

I think we shouldn't presume Irish batting to be weak and count on our bowlers to restrict them to a reachable total. This gamble could come back and haunt us yet again so my suggestion would be not to over think about the toss issue. Our bowlers are under pressure after the disastrous opening match. We should bat first as we would normally after winning the toss.

The game plan should be
bat first, post as much as you can (250+)and choke with some quality left arm spin. I think spin should do the magic for us on this game but I wont count on some presumption.

[বাংলা]এক পেসার নিয়ে খেলতে পারে বাংলাদেশ
[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা] স্পিন দিয়ে ইনিংস ওপেন করলে কেমন হয়! সেটা হয়তো হবে না। তবে আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে একজন পেসার নিয়ে খেলার চিন্তাভাবনা চলছে। এক প্রান্তে রুবেল হোসেন অন্যপ্রন্তে আব্দুর রাজ্জাক বোলিং ওপেন করতে পারেন। অবাক হওয়ার কিছু নেই আগেও বাংলাদেশ এক পেসার নিয়ে খেলেছে।

বেশি দিন আগের কথা নয়, ২০০৯ সালের ৩ নভেম্বর চট্টগ্রাম জহুর আহমেদ চৌধুরী স্টেডিয়ামে, জিম্বাবুয়ের বিপক্ষে একজন পেসার খেলেছে। সিরিজের চতুর্থ ম্যাচে; নাজমুল হোসেনের সঙ্গে বোলিং ওপেন করেন রাজ্জাক। ৪৪ রানে অল-আউট হয়েছিলো জিম্বাবুয়ে।

আয়ারল্যান্ডের জন্য একই ফাঁদ তৈরি করতে চায় বাংলাদেশ। এছাড়া কোন উপায় দেখছেন না নির্বাচকরা। বুধবার তিন নির্বাচক আলোচনায় বসে একপ্রকার একাদশ সাজিয়ে ফেলেছেন। নির্বাচকদের একজন বাংলানিউজকে জানান,“পেস বোলিং দিয়ে আয়ারল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে পারা যাবে না। স্পিন দিয়ে জিততে হবে।”

একাদশটা কেমন হতে পারে? ওই নির্বাচক বোলারদের দিয়ে শুরু করেন। “রুবেল হোসেন, আব্দুর রাজ্জাক, সাকিব আল হাসান, সোহরাওয়ার্দী শুভ, নাঈম ইসলাম টানা বোলিং করবে। আশরাফুলের বোলিংটাও কাজে লাগানো যেতে পারে। সেক্ষেত্রে মাহমুদউল্লাহ এবং শফিউল ইসলামকে বসতে হবে।”

একাদশ নির্বাচনের আগে কোচ এবং অধিনায়কের মতামত জেনে নিয়েছেন প্রধান নির্বাচক। অতএব সমস্যা হওয়ার কথা নয়। যদিও একাদশ নিয়ে চূড়ান্ত সিদ্ধান্ত হয়নি। খেলার আগের দিন বৃহস্পতিবার দলের আলোচনায় ক্রিকেটারদের জানিয়ে দেওয়া হবে কে কে খেলছেন।

সোহরাওয়ার্দীর খেলা অনেকটাই নিশ্চিত ধরে নেওয়া যেতে পারে। অনুশীলনে বাঁহাতি এই স্পিনার টানা ব্যাটিং করেছেন। বোলিংয়ের পাশাপশি সোহরাওয়ার্দীর ব্যাটিং কিক করলে দারুণ উপকৃত হবে দল। সেজন্যই ব্যাটিং প্র্যাকটিস। নাঈম ইসলামও বোলিংয়ে শান দিয়েছেন।

শফিউল ইসলাম উদ্বোধনী ম্যাচে ভালো করতে পারেননি। সাত ওভারে ৬৯ রান দিয়ে নিয়েছেন একটি উইকেট। সেদিক থেকে রুবেল হোসেন কিছুটা এগিয়ে ১০ ওভারে ৬০ রান দিয়েছেন। এছাড়া বুধবার ফিল্ডিংয়ের সময় ক্যাচ ধরতে গিয়ে; মাটিতে পড়ে ডান বাহুতে চোট পেয়েছেন শফিউল। গুরুতর কিছু নয়। বরফ দেওয়ায় ব্যথা কমে গেছে। শফিউলের দাবি ‘কোন ব্যথাও নেই’। ফিজিও মাইকেল হেনরিও শফিউলের চোটকে কোন সমস্যাই মনে করছেন না। সেক্ষেত্রে অধিনায়ক একাদশে শফিউলকে বেছে নিলেও নিতে পারেন।

অনুশীলনে আরো একজন চোট পেয়েছেন। উদ্বোধনী ব্যাটসম্যান ইমরুল কায়েস ডান হাতের কজ্বির ওপরের দিকে বলের আঘাত লেগেছে। তিনিও বরফ থেরাপি নিচ্ছেন। ফিজিও জানিয়েছেন পেশির ভেতরে সামান্য রক্তক্ষরণ হচ্ছে। কয়েক ঘণ্টা বরফ দিলে রক্তক্ষরণ বন্ধ হয়ে যাবে। বিশ্রামে থাকার মতো কিছু হয়নি।

বাংলাদেশ বরাবরই স্পিন নির্ভর দল। একদল বাঁহাতি স্পিনারের বিপরীতে খেলতে হবে ভেবে মাঠে নামে প্রতিপক্ষ। আয়ারল্যান্ডও জেনে গেছে স্পিন বহর নিয়ে খেলবে বাংলাদেশ। কিন্তু সেটা যে বোলিংয়ের ৯৯ শতাংশ বুঝতে পারেনি।

After aiming their first shots at the supposed lesser lights of the Cricket World Cup, the big guns are at last trained on each other over the next few days, with a series of contests matching the longest-established test-playing nations.

The last two World Cup hosts, South Africa and the West Indies, will meet Thursday.

That will be followed a day later when the reigning champion, Australia, meets New Zealand — not just its steady regional rival, but the last team to beat it in a World Cup match, so long ago that it happened in another millennium, in 1999.

Saturday will see co-hosts Sri Lanka and Pakistan staging a potentially explosive rematch of their meeting in the 2009 World Twenty20 final. Finally, on Sunday, India, the co-host and favorite, will play an England squad desperately relieved just to have defeated the Netherlands by six wickets in its tournament debut Tuesday, in a match that was much closer than expected.

Each contest is rich in promise, a potential pointer to fortunes in the later stages of the tournament.

Yet, there is a strong argument that the most important contest over the next four days is none of the above. Taking place at Mirpur Stadium in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on Friday, it matches the third co-host, Bangladesh, with Ireland, which had to win a spot in the tournament in a qualifying tournament for the nontest nations.

The big teams are most likely jostling for position ahead of the real business of the tournament, which comes in the quarterfinals and after.

All want to win their matches over the next few days, but none will feel that its chances have been brutally damaged should it lose.

Bangladesh vs. Ireland is, by contrast, arguably the first must-win contest of the tournament. Both teams cherish serious hopes of reaching the quarterfinals. Each, after all, reached the final eight in the West Indies in 2007. Either would see victory in Mirpur as a significant step toward that ambition — and defeat as a savage blow.

A victory would get Bangladesh back on track after the opening-day beating it took from India. Defeating Ireland would show it to be capable of winning against less formidable opposition. Further victories over the Netherlands, the other team in Group B that came through the qualifying tournament, and the West Indies, which began the tournament ranked marginally below Bangladesh, would probably be enough to see it through to a quarterfinal, which would be played on a home ground, Mirpur.

Lose, and it must cope with the psychological blow of a 0-2 start, the desperate disappointment of its passionate supporters and the practical problem that such a defeat would leave almost no room for a further setback. To progress, it would almost certainly need to beat either a formidable South Africa team or England. England, in theory, is much less imposing, but it is a team Bangladesh has beaten only once in 14 one-day international meetings.

Ireland has at least been relieved of the pressure to save the honor of the qualifiers, thanks to the vibrant Dutch display against England. It can concentrate on its own goal, which is to follow its progression in 2007 by once again reaching the later stages.

It has only itself to blame for that task’s being tougher than it was four years ago. If it had not condemned Pakistan to an early flight home by beating it on, of all dates, St. Patrick’s Day, the organizers might not have lengthened the current tournament’s pool stage to protect — as they have admitted — the bigger teams and the commercial income they bring with them.

St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, falls during this tournament as well, but the organizers have not scheduled a match for Ireland that day.

Ireland captain William Porterfield believes his team can progress again. “I think we have a great chance of getting out of our group,” he said before the tournament.

If the task is tougher than in 2007, so is his squad. Four years ago most players were amateurs. Now all but two have professional contracts.

Newcomers since 2007 include Ed Joyce, an Irish-born batsman good enough to have played for England in the last World Cup, and teenage spin-bowler George Dockrell, who made a big impression with his control and composure amid the batting mayhem of the last World Twenty20 tournament.

It remains to be seen whether Irish success this time would, as senior player Niall O’Brien has suggested. make it harder for the organizers to exclude it from the next tournament, in 2015, when the number of teams is set to be cut from 14 to 10.

It is not as if its success in 2007 brought grateful thanks from cricket’s rulers.

But Ireland remains determined to test the proposition, and beating Bangladesh would be a huge step toward that, leaving it needing to beat its fellow qualifier, Netherlands, plus one other team to reach the later stages.

Defeat would mean having to beat at least two test nations to have a chance of going through — at this stage, not quite make or break, but certainly severely reducing its chances.

Ireland knows it can beat Bangladesh. It won when they met at the last World Cup and also in the 2009 World Twenty20. Outside of that, they played once in Bangladesh, a 3-0 series victory for the hosts three years ago.

Either way it should be fascinating, with all the tension of the match that truly matters. Too bad, if the organizers have their way, that it could be a long time before these two meet again in a World Cup.

our mid to lower order players are all the same, even switching to shuvo will not help our batting woes.

Although batting is frequently our issue, bowling let us down the last time. I know Indians play spin well, but the way the spinners got thrashed was inexcusable. We cannot afford both Naeem and Riyad.

Minor injury worries for Bangladesh


Two days before their crucial game against Ireland, Bangladesh had injury scares to two key players while training. Shafiul Islam fell badly on his shoulder when going for a catch, and Imrul Kayes was hit on his right forearm when batting. They both looked bad blows when they happened - any fast bowler taking a bad fall is dangerous, and Imrul came out with a swollen arm - but the team is confident both of them will recover in time to play on Friday.

For a while, it seemed Bangladesh might even take the drastic step of bringing back Mashrafe Mortaza, who was not picked for the World Cup but who has been training with the side just in case. The injuries would also have brightened Mohammad Ashraful's comeback chances, although he is still a contender even if Kayes makes it back in time.

All those contingencies were all but laid to rest by the team physiotherapist, Mike Henry. "Shafiul is all right," Henry said. "He had an awkward fall on his right shoulder. We have given him the ice treatment, and we are not really concerned. We ran a few tests on him too. It was as we suspected, a fall. He is not ruled out for the Friday game."

Henry was hopeful about Kayes too. "He didn't wear his armguard, which he should have," Henry said. "It was a bruise, and of course it is not going to stop him from playing. It is a bit sore, and he had anyway finished his batting session."

It is just as well that the injury scares were not serious, because Bangladesh are up against an inspired Ireland side who have beaten them in both their clashes in world events. Mushfiqur Rahim, Bangladesh's wicketkeeper-batsman, even called this a bid for revenge. "It is like the match against India when we looked back to take inspiration," Mushfiqur said. "It is the same thing in our mind about the Ireland game. We drew 1-1 in Ireland last year, and we lost to them in the 2007 and 2009 World Cups. So yes, we want to beat them and take revenge."

That doesn't mean that there was any disrespect for the opposition. "Ireland will be geared up to perform here because they have crossed a lot of hurdles to play the World Cup," Mushfiqur said. "But no matter how much they practise here, they will find it hard to cope with our spinners."

Naeem batting role was supposed to be quick scoring. He has not done that. Can either Ash or Shuvo do that? I don't know. At least, Shuvo should be handier with the ball, without much drop off at batting.

Irish Cricket Team visit Street Children’s Project in Bangladesh

23 February 2011
<hr> The Irish Cricket team will face Bangladesh in their first match of the World Cup this Friday 25th February.
While they will be opponents on the field, a recent trip to Plan Ireland projects for street children in Dhaka prove that they show a united front when it comes to charity.
Plan Ireland, the international children’s development charity, recently invited the Irish Cricket team to visit The Street Children’s Project in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which works with extremely vulnerable children living and working on the streets.
About three quarters of the street children suffer from chronic malnutrition and a recent study revealed that 1 in 5 also became the victim of rape while sleeping on the street.
David Dalton, CEO of Plan Ireland said, “Children living and working in the streets of Dhaka are extremely vulnerable and are often victims of abuse and trafficking. Plan’s Street Children Project provides essential services and facilities, providing training and access to income earning opportunities to empower them and address their rights and needs.”
Irish Cricket Team coach Phil Simmons said, “Visiting the street children in Dhaka was an amazing experience. They were so excited to meet with us and greeted us with flowers and beautiful smiles. The team saw first-hand the great work Plan is doing on the ground and the impact that the Street Children’s Project has on the lives of the children.”
There are currently 11 drop in centres and 2 shelter homes for the children. At present the services provided include; shelter, food, functional education, counselling, skill training and child protection.
For more information and to sponsor a child in Bangladesh or one of the 48 countries Plan Ireland works with in the developing world, please visit www.plan.ie (http://www.plan.ie) or call 1800 829 829.

They aren't helping his cause at all. Stop telling him BS, just go out there and bat. There is no "last chance" for Ashraful in Bangladesh team. His name is written all over team, and he will play 300 more match for us inshallah. But question is how he will perform, as always.

Ashraful, when you go out to bat on 25th, just look around the stadium. There will be about 25k fans and all of them wants a cracka-jacka from you, just BELIEVE in yourself. Breathe and smile. Don't use the brain.

You cannot use what you don't have!

I hope he plays well, though. This may be the most crucial match for BD this WC.

I was watching Ireland/England match. The British commentator was remarking that everybody will have to go through Bangladesh to advance to the next round. He particularly noted that Bangladesh game at Chittagong will be particularly hard for England. In response to this other commentator, Manjrekar, remarked that Bangladesh is highly overated. He stated that this is due to their recent successes at home. I was apalled by his remark! We beat England at England and WI at WI last year. Granted that we whitewashed NZ at home. But a whitewash is a whitewash. Is India' whiewashed of NZ is any less significant to them? Why did they even bother to play them. I would like to see if they can whitewash us at India.

Normally I liked Manjrekar's comments. But, it is hard to be objective about BD if you are an Indian. BD should focus on just one goal throughout this tournament. Next match.

That's all huff and puff. No one would be silly enough to go into this game or any game with one pacer (as history suggests, it happens very rarely)... That would be a massive gamble and something you would try as a last resort. We don't need to be gambling with the side so early in the tournament. It's not as if we've tried everything and we have no other choice. As Ian Pont said in his thread, if the pitch is not receptive to spin which can easily happen if you're bowling first on most pitches, spinners can become "Cannon Fodder" and easily picked for runs and before you know it you're chasing 300. You ask any opening batsman in the world about what they'd rather face and just about everyone will say spin.

We need to show some faith in the pacers and believe that we can do well against the Irish who are no way near the class of the Indian Batsmen and should be able to do a lot better in this game. And if we are running scared of the Irish batsmen, we have some serious issues to deal with and the Qtr finals are a long way away. Are we forgetting that this is the same bowling line up that demolished NZ in the same conditions??? If we must change anything, maybe bring in Nazmul for Shafiul and that's it.

no other match has made me so tense in recent past.

It's tough being the favorite and bearing the expectation of so many ppl... If we're feeling like this imagine how tough it must be for the players.

Unfortunately, PPV in Ontario is not televising this match live as they have decided to televise the Aus/NZ match which is played earlier. I am so upset. They will show a taped repeat later in the day.

Banglanews24 said "শফিউল ও মাহমুদউল্লাহ’র জায়গায় নাজমুল-আশরাফুল"

Full Article: শফিউল ও মাহমুদউল্লাহ’র জায়গায় নাজমুল-আশরাফুল
স্পোর্টস করেসপন্ডেন্ট
বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম

ঢাকা: বাংলাদেশের একাদশে পরিবর্তন আনতে হচ্ছে এনিয়ে কোন সন্দেহ নেই। অন্তত পেস বোলিংয়ে পরিবর্তন অবধারিত। শফিউল ইসলাম চোট পাওয়ায় কপাল খুলে গেছে নাজমুল হোসেনের।

যদিও বাংলাদেশ অধিনায়ক বিষয়টি চেপে রাখার চেষ্টা করছেন। “শফিউলকে কাল (শুক্রবার) সকাল পর্যন্ত দেখা হবে। সেজন্য একাদশ নির্বাচনে অপেক্ষা করতে হচ্ছে।”

বাস্তবতা অন্যরকম শফিউল খেলার মতো অবস্থায় নেই। বিশেষ করে কাঁধে চোট পাওয়ায় বোলিং করা খুবই কঠিন। বৃহস্পতিবার তাকে অনুশীলনেও দেখা যায়নি। ফিজিও মাইকেল হেনরি পরিচর্যা করেছেন। যদিও শফিউলের এক্সে করার প্রয়োজন মনে করছেন না ফিজিও। বরং ব্যথানাশক ঔষুধ দিয়েছেন। তবে শেষপর্যন্ত খেলার মতো শারীরিক অবস্থা ফিরে পাওয়া সম্ভব কি না খোদ হেনরিও বলতে পারছেন না। “শফিউলকে চোটমুক্ত করতে নীবিড় পরিচর্যা করা হচ্ছে। নিশ্চিত করে বলতে পারবো না সে খেলতে পারবে। অনেক সময় এক রাতের ঘুমে সব ঠিক হয়ে যায়। এই মুহূর্তে অপেক্ষা করা ছাড়া কিছু করার নেই।”

বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের শৈল্যবিদ দেবাশিস চৌধুরী অবশ্য মাইকেল হেনরির সুরে কথা বলেছেন,“এখনই নেতিবাচক কিছু বলবো না। আমরা পরিচর্যা করছি। ভালো হতেও পারে।”

বুধবার ফিল্ডিংয়ের সময় ঝাপিয়ে ক্যাচ নিতে গিয়ে মাটিতে পড়ে ডান হাতের কাঁধে আঘাত পান শফিউল। প্রাথমিক চিকিৎসা নেওয়ার পর কিছুটা সুস্থ বোধ করেন। ওই দিন দুপুরে বাংলানিউজকে জানিয়ে ছিলেন,“ব্যথা নেই। খেলতে পারবো।”

বৃহস্পতিবার সকালে বিমর্ষ দেখাচ্ছিলো শফিউলকে। মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা স্টেডিয়ামে কুশল জানতে চাইলে হতাশ কণ্ঠে বলেনে,“ভালো না’। রাতে ডান কাত হয়ে বালিশে মাথা রাখতে পারছিলেন না পর্যন্ত। “খুব ব্যথা করেছে। বুঝতে পারছি না কি হবে।”

কী আর হবে খেলতে পারবেন না শফিউল। তিনি যে আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে খেলছেন না ম্যানেজার তানজিব আহমেদ সাদের কথায় তা স্পষ্ট,“শফিউলের ভাগ্যটা খারাপ, খেলতে পারবে না। ওর জায়গায় নাজমুল খেলবে।”

শফিউল ছাড়াও একাদশে পরিবর্তন আনা হবে। মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলকে সুযোগ দেওয়া হবে শুক্রবারের ম্যাচে। মাহমুদউল্লাহ রিয়াদের জায়গায় খেলবে সাবেক অধিনায়ক। ব্যাট করবেন সাত নম্বরে।

দুটি কারণে আশরাফুলকে আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে খেলানোর সিদ্ধান্ত নেওয়া হয়েছে। প্রথমত: ব্যাটিং পাওয়ার প্লেতে রান তোলা এবং অফ স্পিন দিয়ে প্রতিপক্ষ ব্যাটসম্যানদের ফাঁদে ফেলা। অফ এবং লেগ দুই ভাবে বল করতে পারেন আশরাফুল। আয়ারল্যান্ডের খেলোয়াড় এবং কর্মকর্তারাও তার বোলিং সম্পর্কে খুব একটা ধারণা পাননি। সে সুবিধাটা পাচ্ছে বাংলাদশ।

এক পেসার নিয়ে খেলার যে চিন্তাভাবনা করা হচ্ছিলো শেষপর্যন্ত সেখান থেকে সরে এসেছে টিম ম্যানেজমেন্ট। দুই পেসার রুবেল হোসেন এবং নাজমুল হোসেন খেলবেন। আব্দুর রাজ্জাক, সাকিব আল হাসান, নাঈম ইসলাম এবং আশরাফুল স্পিন করবেন। অর্থাৎ ছয় বোলার ঘুরে ফিরে ৫০ ওভার বল করবেন।

ইমরুল কায়েসও চোট পেয়েছিলেন। বাঁহাতের কুনুই’র নিচে বল আঘাত করে। এখনো ফুলে আছে খানিকটা। কিন্তু বরফ দেওয়ায় ব্যথা কমে গেছে। বৃহস্পতিবার নেটে ব্যাটিংও করেছেন। সেক্ষেত্রে শাহরিয়ার নাফিসকে অপেক্ষায় থাকতে হলে টপ অর্ডারে অন্যের দুঃভাগ্যের ওপর।

বাংলাদেশ দল: তামিম ইকবাল (সহ-অধিনায়ক), ইমরুল কায়েস, জুনায়েদ সিদ্দিকী, মুশফিকুর রহিম (উইকেটরক্ষক), সাকিব আল হাসান (অধিনায়ক), রকিবুল হাসান, মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল, নাঈম ইসলাম, আব্দুর রাজ্জাক, নাজমুল হোসেন ও রুবেল হোসেন।

বাংলাদেশ সময়: ১৬১৮ ঘণ্টা, ফেব্রুয়ারি ২৪, ২০১১

Raqibul did ok coz he played without any pressure against India. This guy can hit 6!!! I want to see how he does under pressure in his new position...

our openers and middle order batsmen can play more freely and score more boundaries if they know that there is batting depth in our line up. Last 5 wickets should be able to add 80-100 runs and reduce pressure from the top order lineup.

Ireland is a strong team (compared to BD), so, there's a strong possibility that Ireland will beat Bangladesh.

ireland lost a series in zimbabwe 2-1...they've also lost to afghanistan in all 3 formats of the game, IIRC.

if we play to at least 75% of our potential, they won't have a chance on earth.

think tank is too fickle...while ash over riyad is an improvement...will they bring riyad back if ash fails. and we wonder why the circles are never broken...

although naeem has been poorer than riyad, for some reason i have more faith in his batting abilities. i am glad he still made the cut i guess. i hope to God he hits some biggies or at least gets 1s and 2s. he needs to have a SR over 100. if he fails, its time to bring on Shuvo.

After we finish this world cup we should look for a player who has muscles and is not short, and use him for the batting powerplay, giving him the license to hit hard. This will solve our batting powerplay problem :) (I am aware this is harder than I make it look)

We can't afford to have mushfiqur rahim at the batting powerplay.

Wish Mahmudullah could be trained to smash the ball at the batting powerplay. He has the potential. :(

The only BD player who has shown a consistent ability to slog in PP over is Mash. (To a lesser extent, Shahadat.)

No it's a D/N match. It's really confusing about what should we do if we win the toss actually.......Ireland batted really well in both of their warm up matches, so if we end up scoring 240-250 odd, the pressure would be on us and Ireland will believe that they are the favourites to win it from there!

On the other hand, if we bowl first and can't restrict them under 250 odd, it might well cause pressure on our batsmen and having the most terrible batsmen to bat in the PP, it's not gonna be easy for us to chase even 250 against them!

And not only Ireland.....we have to think about Ned very closely too, they have a very strong batting line up.....they were really unlucky not to win against Eng after scoring 292!

We should bat first if we win the toss. Dew has not been a major factor so far in Mirpur. If we post 280+, we can let our SLA spinners loose to restrict their scoring.

Aaj k abar Irish ra TV tey boley jey ;

"We have faced better spinners in last few years like Murali & Warne" , So , we are ready for the spin challenge as it comes on the way ;

I hope they keep saying these things. It should only motivate our spinners. I hope Shakib bowls well tomorrow. He has been rather expensive lately.
