View Full Version : Day 5: Ban - Zim 1st Test

I could not watch the whole 4th day of this test match. I was online until it was lunch at which point Zimbabwe was 39/1. Then when I woke up this moring, went online, hoping to see some promising report, I found .... what .....!! I really feel sorry for all those people who were sitting in front of the computer, watching the whole post lunch sessing and going through some excruciating pain when BD started batting.

I myself was a cricketer when I was in BD. If I would play in place of Habibul Bashar, I would perform better, at least in this test match. I am sure all of you would perform better than our captain. Where to hide this pain and shame?

i'm looking for a place to hide. see the worst part is, we are again in front of the pc, hoping for some miracle on day 5. doesn't matter how cruelly the team deprives us, we rebuild our hope and come back. its like that poor guy in greek myth ( i forgot his name) who were cursed that he has to roll over a huge stone uphill a mountain. it fell off everytime he tryed, and he had to start all over again. are we any better?

February 22, 2004, 10:55 PM
I wish they could bat out till lunch. what do you think guys? last night, heath streak didn't even bowl. I am sure this morning, he will rip through our tail.

One good thing though, tail will be ripped, so nobody would call the team a bunch of monkys.

We are not at the tail yet. Besides, Rajin is still there. Masud is in form. The first hour is crucial.

hi billah, its nice to see someone is still optimistic. i don't personally however, see the innings going for one full session. just hope that there will not be any new record such as the our lowest score or (one of the) largest defeat or something like that.

I donot have any idea what our cricket team going to do.But I have an idea how BD fans(poor soul) can prepare to watch a BD cricket match.

<b>TOP TEN THING YOU SHOULD CONSIDER BEFORE YOU WATCH A BD GAME</B


10. Keep all sharp objects away from your reach.

9. Write "BD might loose, and it is OK! It is just a Game" 100 times

8. Buy some antidepressent Medicine.

7. Learn how to do CPR

6. Keep your children locked up in their room because you donot want them to learn that "loosing is ok!"

5. Patch up all the disagreement with your mother or wife, because you might not able to do so after the game.

4. Put a note " My Computer monitor has nothing to do with the score at all"

3. Remind yourself once in a while you need to win!!(For your own life)

2. Keep first aid box available. If you have high blood pressure do not watch the game at all.

1. Make a phsychiatrist appointment for the next day of the game. And cook some good food for the end of the game to cheer yourself up.:love:

Problem is only fans are learning from the experience, not the BD team. For example, Ashraful went fishing for a off (wide) delivery.

21.4 Price to Rajin Saleh, FOUR, well flighted and on the stumps, Saleh
comes down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and blasts it
to deep mid wicket boundary

No problem with that, as long as he is OK. "Mal mathai na uthlei holo"

Goal is pack up and go home.

Or why not frustrate the Zimbos for an hour or so then go home.

we have 2 to 3 controversial outs. not that it would have saved the match, but who knows. that last one of tapash was off the pads - did anyone see it?

BAN 127/9, Rafique gone trying to smack bowler. Look forward to the next test match, now. at least we not lose by innings, but by at least 200 runs, still bad though.

when the hatrick was on yesterday, there wasn't much time for coaching or listening, the batsmen were like deer caught in headlights. But when you see Rafique just getting out trying to smash the ball away, you have to wonder why the last few batsmen also had to get out to rash shots - couldn't the strategy have been to not play any shots all day and just stand there and defend???

They have to die fighting mate, no good just standing there, they will get out sooner or later. If the top order cant bat what can the bowlers do. MASHUD SHOWING DAT NOW, WOW!!!

Bravo Khaled mashud! Wonderful 50. And wonderful keeping. This is what we got from this test match.

54.5 Ewing to Khaled Mashud, FOUR, lofted over mid on, one bounce over
the rope, that was a brutal shot to get to 50!

next target should be 200, then 250 and the 300 ant to finally 353!!

if not survive the next 46 overs!!

Bangladesh have the best batting lower order to save humiliation, they do it all the time. Not many teams can bowl us out for below 100, even when we give them a start like 14/5.

Fight on bangladesh!!!!1

by the way where is the FW and the rest of the "manju can't bat" bashers? True, Manju can't bat. but he can sure stand there, can't he? He was involved in back-to-back 10th wicket partnerships.

But, if we need to drop him becuase Aziz can take more wickets, so be it. We can't let ZIm score 400+ in the next test, even with Wishart, Verm returning (are they?)

The top order could learn alot from the lower order on how to bat, they scored almost 150 for the last 5 wickets it the top order had scored atleast 200 we could have won or drawn the game.

Dear pavel,

Idiot is a very strong word.

If you can ask Hasib, I am sure he can explain you what happened in the cricinfo. H Bashar's name was there for a good 20min or so..........

Good day!

If this is the case than I am sorry.
But I checked myself and I was on cricinfo webpage covering the game the whole day and I haven't seen it so I thought you were intentionally spreading mis-information; which obviously ticked me.

Anyways, sorry again.

Cheers,
