How is the pitch and outfield now? Is this raining now or stopped? Anyone can help...

Sham
February 26, 2004, 03:35 AM
I would bat if I won the toss. Bulawayo usually takes a bit of spin and I would want the two spinners to have the last bowl on this wicket. Also, I would want the batters to have the first use of the wicket.

However, with the rain and if it is overcast, it would be tempting to give Alamgir Kabir a crack with the new ball. He is an out-and-out swing bowler and the conditions would be perfectly suited for him.

So, its a trade off. In the end, I would probably bat all the same, but it might not be a bad toss to lose.

Dr. W.G. Grace said-

If you win the toss, bat.
If in doubt, think about it, than bat.
If in even more doubt, consult a friend, than bat

Four inches of overnight rain has left certain areas of the outfield very wet.

The umpires, keeping player safety in mind have decided to relook at 11:00 local time

The sun is out and chances are good for play to start this morning.

The inspection has shown that the outfield is still not fit for play.

The Umpires have indicated that lunch will be taken at 12:00 (10:00 GMT) and a further inspection to take place at 12:40.

i am from India, a big supporter of Bangladesh Team. im keenly following all of your games since your last tour. BD made impresseive tours in Australia and Bangladesh, then `just okey' with England. But overall i dissappointed with their ovrall performance, especially with their batting collapses in all games.

I want BD to win the test and ODI matches, atleast for the sake of Cricket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its been years since a win
fans burnnin in flame.
spent so much money
searching for some fame
BCB finds no results
Are all these goin down the drain:-/
burnnin in flame... flame...

raju
February 26, 2004, 05:20 AM
ya u r right......we have big collapse almost in every game. The thing is most of our batsmans are around 20. and they are really inexperienced.....

maybe this is a reason.......

vv_sunil
February 26, 2004, 05:33 AM
i noticed in many occassions that your lower order is showing consistency in batting, within their limit. the inexperience is applicable to them also. ur bowlers are performing well in many of the cases. the inexperience is applicable to them also.

i feel ur front line batsmen are not competent and lack of application or feel granted

ya this is true that lower order is playing better than the top order.....

one reason may be....they dont have to face worldclass new ball bowlers....

most of our top order batsmans are talented....they proved it in different occassions...but the problem is - they are not consistant...

everyone is trying to figure it out...but no solution so far....:)

I prefer BD to have a young team, no point bring in the likes of Aminul Islam and the other verterans just to win a test match. We have a chance at least to drwn this test match, due to the rain again!!

BD will win a test before a ODI, unless we play Kenya in a ODI tornameNt, but they too are better than us in ODI!!

:fanflag:

They do have to face. The new ball becomes due after 85th over.

After a final inspection the umpires have decided that the outfield will not dry enough for any play on day 1.

The first day's play of the second and final Test has been called off.

Play will start 30 minutes earlier tomorrow (09:30 GMT)
