I can see its good start for IND. so bad for us. i really can't understand why they choose to field. see, it 40 now with 6 RR.

Another *Poor* decision to put India into bat. Good luck BD in plate.

AGC
February 19, 2004, 10:36 PM
So most ppl think its a poor decision then. So why do they take these decisions.....

Rubu
February 19, 2004, 10:37 PM
I'm not gonna see them in plate. either i see them in super league or i don't see them. looking at the score, it seems like i don't need to spend anymore of my time trying to know whats going on in u19

tensionEaachi
February 19, 2004, 10:39 PM
i think everything is just right! they seem to have a very good batting line up. so that way if we can get them to score a total with in 200-250 will be good. And no matter what we will have to score that and win. All we need is to restrict them and get our batters to do well. So hold your fingers crossed and hope nothing we do well when batting!

adnan
February 19, 2004, 10:40 PM
Its a series of Special* decisions. Put Scot on bat, now put India. I never heard any captain took fielding on Dhaka Stadium which is always known as a batting paradise. You know what...we just suck. :mad:

Rubu
February 19, 2004, 10:50 PM
ok. i can't figure out any logic behind deciding to bat. if we need big score match, bat first and get the big score. if we can't get big score batting first, we'll still have a chance to win and so chance to super league. but if they do the big score, we HAVE to do that. so, the way i look at it, there is not anything we cannot do by batting first, but there are things that we cannot do if we field. we are limiting our chances. why?

No need to explain really. They know better than us all about their strength, weakness, pitch condition etc.

Our batting strength is real good too. Just like India, our batsmen are capable of building a large score.

AGC
February 19, 2004, 11:03 PM
Yeah Chinaman is right. They're the pros.

Rubu

I HOPE you are right and they didn't do any big mistake. i also hope they understand they logic. i don't need to understand it. all i want is super league.

fwullah
February 19, 2004, 11:17 PM
The only logic that I can think of of batting first after winning the toss is take up a few early wickets. The wicket doesn't have cracks, like we usually see. So the caoch/captain - team management thought that if we can take a few early wickets using the moisture on the pitch, then it will be a sonay sohaga.

But the thing is that coach did not think that our pace bowlers would be so indisciplined.

And as the commentators are saying, the pace bowlers are trying to bowl faster than they can, which results in bowling short of length balls and thus so many runs are scored off by the Indian youngsters.

After 8/9 overs, when our pace bowlers did start to bowl maintaining a proper line and length, there have been lots of edges that are going to the boundaries, resulting in even more runs for the Indians.

Run Rate came down a little.

Rubu
February 19, 2004, 11:25 PM
hay the hope for early wicket is gone now i'm hoping for some late wickets. don't know how long that will take. we don't have any bowler at all that can do something. we are not even trying new bowlers. instead bring back rubaiyat.
if they keep taking runs like that we'll need to bring the senior team back from ZIM to bat. not sure that will work. need to do something. now.

Nijhum
February 19, 2004, 11:47 PM
Other than following some peoples' motto of living with hope, does anybody really think there is a possibility? One of the reasons, not told yet, for not batting first would be that it was almost sure that india is going to hit it big and its been a rare scene to see (or was it ever seen?) bd players to successfully chase a big score

fast bowlers bowling without any slip fielders for 20 overs n pitching the balls wide n short !!!
fumbling with the balls as if they r playing basketballI !!!!

quite an innovative style of playing (rather say loosing) invented by the captain n (specially) the coach

n look now wht the spinners r doing !!
the brought BD back to the game immediately after they started their game!!!

We just need to score the runs and not worry about overs. Even if we win off the last ball of our 50th over, our NRR will go down to around 1.34, which is still higher than NZ. So just win and we are through!

But lets face it, chasing 309 runs will be very difficult!

for Bangladesh to have any success they need to bat at 5rpo without losing more than 2 wckets till the 40th over and then try to go at 11rpo.

Don't want to sound too optimistic, but if Nafis stays there till the 40th over without us losing more than 4 wickets, the rpo will be close to 6, but then again its a daunting task. I'm heartbroken already.

Yep. 5 dot balls and a six in that over. I really hope this kid isn't a "boundary or nothing" player. Hope he'll milk the bowler around after a big hit and give Nafis some strike too. 9/0 (2)

rafiq
February 20, 2004, 02:42 AM
i've been trying to do some work late but with 2 BD matches on at the same time (must be a first!), that's hard to do.

with nafis gone, chances are really slim. was hoping for a run rate of 5 until the mid point. let's see how deep our batting is. nafis choked when we needed him most, as he is prone to do. can't handle the pressure??

Carte Blanche
February 20, 2004, 02:43 AM
Nazim gone, LBW. Fall of 2nd wicket. 24/2 (5.1). That's it. Our hopes are dashed.

rafiq
February 20, 2004, 02:46 AM
and they don't look too comfortable, do they? that we even think we could have chased 309 against india shows something has changed - i hope these guys still plug away and get 250+ as that will be good momentum to take into the plate round where we will surprisingly meet at least 2 other test nations?

Carte Blanche
February 20, 2004, 02:51 AM
Nazim scored 6 runs from 16 balls, which came from the solitary sixer of the innings. He basically wasted 15 balls, apart from the six. Didn't they teach him just to nudge the ball around and take a single? I wonder if Nafis was getting frustrated due to lack of strike and flurry of dot balls. Just what i was fearing "boundary of nothing" habbit is running amock.

rafiq
February 20, 2004, 02:53 AM
until bd batsmen learn to take singles and rotate the strike, they will never master the one day game

this is how SA is chasing a NZ one day ask rate of over 6:

Things changed a bit after Aftab arrived. Kid's on fire. 55/2 (8.4) RR = 6.35
Aftab 27(19). Seems like Aftaab is getting his runs from cultured shots. Just hope he keeps his cool and continues to keep his wicket intact. Also important that his partner compliments him and rotates the strike. As rafiq pointed out, they ought to be on their toes on running between the wickets.

another lesson: when pace doesn't work (well they did get 2 wickets), they bring on spin in the 11th over - we didn't until it very late - 20 overs plus

So much for Net Run Rates! If we had kept them to about 260, we probably could have won this match. But we were always going to lose wickets keeping up with the run rate required to chase 310. Oh well, lets win the Plate!
