Morning from Bulawayo, and surprise surprise, there is no rain. Play will for the first time in 5 days start on time plenty of sawdust all over the field. There is some wind, but blowing the wrong way for any local rain, but having lost 4 days the chances of a result is slight.

They should declare with out delay to spare us more humiliation and also to give the bowlers some practice.

Wisden overview
Bangladesh’s Development XI didn’t exactly live up to their billing when they were bundled to a thumpingly one-sided defeat in a one-day warm-up match against England in 2003-04. But for the young left-arm spinner, Manjural Islam Rana, there was a silver lining. His two cheap wickets, allied to a no-holds-barred 47 in a futile run-chase, were enough to earn him an international debut in the first ODI at Chittagong. Taking the place of Bangladesh’s first-choice spinner, Mohammad Rafique, he celebrated by dismissing the England captain, Michael Vaughan, with his third ball – the first instance of a Bangladeshi taking a wicket in his first international over. Andrew Miller

I neva knew he was the 1st bangladeshi to take a wicket in his 1st over... i mean i knew he did take a wicket in his 1st over... (yeahyeah i know thats bad english... but at the moment i'm doing maths...)

If zimbos get onto their act properly, they could go for a win, BY TODAY! When Bangladesh is an opponent, anything is possible. Are we that easy, or what?:-/

Hasib
March 1, 2004, 04:30 AM
errr.... i don't think its possible... inshallah will be a draw.

The final act of a match which lost any purpose a couple of days ago got underway on time at Bulawayo, the fifth day of the second Test actually starting promptly under cloudy skies and with rain unlikely given the stiff breeze.

With only 37.1 over bowled so far, the match has to be a draw ... unless Heath Streak wants to gamble. If Zimbabwe could bowl out Bangladesh quickly, forfeit their first innings and bowl them out cheaply for a second time, there is a remote chance that Zimbabwe could snatch a dramatic victory. But it is just that, remote, and Streak is more likely to let the day meander its course and take the series win.

As a contest, this game has long since ceased to have any meaning. The complete washout of the first, third and fourth days meant that even the hapless Bangladeshis couldn't fail to secure a draw. It will be only the second time in 28 matches that Bangladesh will have avoided defeat. The other was also against Zimbabwe - at Dhaka in November 2001 - and on that occasion it was also the weather which was the dominant factor.

Time and again my friend, time and again!!
And now they are capable of taking 20 wickets. The batsmen should take a leaf out of their book.

THE TAILENDERS SHOULD OPEN THE BATTING!!! Sounds crazy, but it could happen if the top order continue to flop although Sarkar and Hossain played well.

March 1, 2004, 05:19 AM
Bangladesh have batted well so far, 9 down for 160 odd; which includes 4 (or more) catch drops by the Zimbabweans of Monjurul Rana and also after 5 wickets down for 88, 160 runs total can be considered a good score.

fwullah
March 1, 2004, 05:22 AM
Mushfique has flopped with the duck of this 2nd test match. But considering that Sujon could have scored only 2 to 10 runs per innings, Mushfique's 44 looks Ok; but we have to remember the fact that Mushfique was also dropped when he was on 0 off the bowling of Price.

So I am thinking, may be 1 or 2 guys who are all-rounders (seamers) from the Under-19 World cup will come into the national side pretty soon and will replace Mushfique.

rafiq
March 1, 2004, 05:48 AM
Giving up on Mushfiq so soon are we? Sigh...

Anyway, what is up with these 168/169 scores against Zim? We just tied the lowest score by us against Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe. And rafique couldn't go past his highest score which was low 30s.. he didn't come in before tapash as he normally does, that may have hurt him.

other than that I am glad I got some sleep during this series...

Mike Haysman, the commentator is repeating that captain Bashar, and the rest of the slips should know BY NOW where to stand. They're now standing too far behind.

But obviously, they don't know YET where to stand.

I think this simple example can be a good indication as to the knowledge of our players; and one of the many reasons why we are not unable to win until now. I think Ebrahim gave a catch earlier before he went out to slips, to Bashar, which was dropped short.

Why don't they play 3 test w zimbabwe?

fy288
March 1, 2004, 06:40 AM
Zimbabwe think they are too good for us, coz nearly all test nations play 2 tests against us they think they can do the same. It should have been definitely been a 3 test series at least. However there will be 5 ODI which we will probably lose 5-0. Bangladesh are a better test side than ODI?:info:

sage
March 1, 2004, 06:43 AM
Are we playing West Indies any time soon? They are not doing well now. If we can get a 3 test Series something good might come out!!

fy288
March 1, 2004, 06:46 AM
We are away to the West Indies in May/June to play 2 tests and 3 ODI. The last time we played them we gave them a scare in the 2nd test in Bangladesh. Kapali played really well in that game.

At 31/1, Carlisle survived an lbw shout off Baisya, in courtesy of umpire Mellinder.

March 1, 2004, 06:59 AM
There has been a huge discussion about Monjurul Islam and Alamgir Kabir among the Zimbabweans.

They are quite surprised to see Monjurul Islam out of this 2nd test, and also asking Atahar Ali as to why Monjurul is not playing in this test having so much experience; and why Alamgir Kabir was not played in the 1st test when Atahar gave the excuse of experience.

sage
March 1, 2004, 07:01 AM
Alamgir or Tareq in the first test would be a good scare.

Alamgir Kabir is a very new player (bowler). Is that the reason why we are missing the following point?

He has been bowling 90 percent of his balls inswingers. And yet, there have been attacking fielders including 3 slips in the off side.

That seems ok though!! How is Alamgirs pace?

sage
March 1, 2004, 07:18 AM
If inswinger has good velocity then right hand batsman will give lot of toss to slip. Atleast by theory.

Can't bear the humiliation anymore. This was the same wicket where Bashar and Co. batted and was wrapped up so quickly. Did the pitch turn up to be a batting paradise for Zimbo all of a sudden?

the test match only proved that we didn't improve much, and that the Pakistan series was something that we played really good in.

And in other series, we are showing our true colors. Because the England series was certainly a very similar to this one in Zimbabwe.

SS
March 1, 2004, 10:36 AM
Now I am more scared to see the team's performance..if this would be a regular test match we wouldn't be able to draw even the way Zimbos were batting....we have to change our structure of cricket or else it will take long time even to achieve a draw...now next goal to atleast get a close win in atleast one day int'l..but i doubt cuz in one day Zimbos are really good that what they showed in last VBSeries..!! How can we stop them in atleast one who know!!! :S
