Khulna 4-dayer today
Sports Reporter

The visiting West Indies High Performance Squad takes on the SAHARA-BCB National Cricket Academy team in the first four-day match at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna today.

But the weather may play foul as according to the forecast there is a chance of rain or thunder showers during the match.

Mahamudul Hasan will lead the local side.

The visitors will play the second four-dayer against Bangladesh A from September 22 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur where they also play three one-day matches on September 28, September 30 and October 2 and two T20 matches on October 4 and October 5 against the same opponents.

Sohel

Looks like Rabbi's getting killed out there, no doubt because of loose deliveries. That's what happens when our quicker bowlers themselves believe pace and accuracy to be mutually exclusive, and never work hard on their own outside "camp" to discover the fallacy. :facepalm:

Dollar on the other hand, has had a great opening spell.

Our academy playing with 3 pacers means there is something for pacers. On the other hand W I elected to bat means batting condition.
So wicket is probably batting with some help for pacers.

Well it's been a good partnership between Fletcher and Hope, to be fair to the bang bowlers these two aren't exactly rookies, Fletcher already has an A-team ton against India under his belt, has played for the WI senior team in the one day and t20s and is usually one of the best scorers in our four day competition, his problem has often been when he's stepped up to the top level he's flattered to deceive, perhaps this stint at the academy has helped him!!!..

Hope is one who's been in and out of the Barbados team but when he's hot he's hot, many compare him to Marlon Samuels with the stylish way that he bats, needs to convert his good starts more often though.

I think the pitch is probably good for batting right now but it will be interesting to see if it turns on the third and fourth day.

So whats the lowdown on these bang bowlers? have they got good reputations domestically?

Dollar apparently was the highest wicket taker though I'm not sure how since we always have an SLA bag the most wickets and a pacer by the name of Al Amin Hossain snagged 30+ at an average of 15 apiece. Doesn't have much pace on him but does swing it. Apart from destroying Zimbabwe in Bulawayo once, his int'l record is piss poor.

Kamrul Islam Rabbi is sposed to be a quickie - which in Bangladesh means bowling around the 140 kph mark. He's largely unknown although Ian Pont rated him highly.

Others I don't know about. The batsman everyone knows. Mominul had a 100 in the A team series in WI last season (along with Nasir), and Anamul was the U-19 WC's leading scorer, averaging just over 60. He's also hit 169 against a RSA Academy side which included Merchant de Lange a couple years ago. Sarkar is a binge scorer - can smash any attack for big runs one innings and little else the next 5 or 6.

Pace bowling is still obviously the main worry. 1 wicket between 3 pacers just isn't good enough. What's worse is how poor Rabbi was. He's 1 of the top pace talents in the country and yet he got smacked. Well let's see how our batsmen perform.

Doesn't matter how flat the pitch is and how easy it is to score, you still have to do the hard work and score those runs. No point scoring at SR 100 but going out on 26 while the team is chasing a huge total just to avoid follow on.

Yeah he's our A-team captain and done very well against India A recently, for Guyana he usually bowls alongside Bishoo aswell, i knew he'd do well on this tour and rumours suggest he might be auditioning for a place in the senior squad when they tour Bang in November.

Score now 159/7 , glad Brathwaite has continued his good form and has two wickets, i'm gussing the follow on would be something over 250? so that might be tough to avoid.

I hope Anamul and Mominul get centuries tomorrow in the follow on. Its pretty clear they're the only batsman worth anything in this particular side. Bowlers stink too. If we can draw the match by getting around 300-5 I'd take that as a positive into the next match.

Ian Pont
September 18, 2012, 03:21 PM
It simply shows the BCB has a way to go to develop players that's all.

Other Test playing countries tend to have High Performance Units that have been in place for years, and batting and bowling coaches at development levels who groom players into becoming Test cricketers. Bangladesh hasn't really done this yet, nor has it spent and invested large dollars into making this a reality.

I don't think that Bangladesh players lack talent - they purely lack development into world quality individuals. Elite level players are not found by the roadside, they are developed and evolved.

You get back what you put in... the results are there for all to see at all levels

Completely agree with Ian. I dont know why we fans would consider ourselves better than WI HP team when BD team didnt even have a HP team 2 months ago!! Its not like we suddenly became a First Class team in First Class competition.

You have to give credit to West Indies team too..... We are bashing Anamul/Mominul but what about the bowlers who allowed WI team to pile up that many runs? In fact, I think bowling is the area we need to focus on the most because even at the national side, we don't have quality bowlers 'who can take the 20 wickets' ( remember someone said that and we called him a moron..?) . Our HP side didnt get much time together to get into the groove right after the 50 over matches. Lets give them a break... Also, just keep in mind that WI isnt Kenya or Zimbabwe whom we can take for granted and score 500 runs easily.. Heck even Zimbabwe put much emphasis on their FC structure way before we started.. Lets be realistic in our expectations and not blame the players as much as we should focus on infrastructure and facilities we are providing them..

We need these boys to play more and more of these longer version matches to develop the kind of temperament needed to succeed at Test level. Clearly the WI squad already has already acquired the discipline our batters lack in the longer format and we need to bridge this gap at the youth level as much as possible by playing more games. This will ensure the gap between the national team skill levels between the two countries can also be reduced in the future.

Soumya has got talent...he's just about as consistent as Ash though. I'd still rather see him opening instead of Kayes or Nazimuddin.

Congrats Soumya Sarkar for his brilliant hundred.
Good to see a Bangladeshi batsman standing up and fighting back to save the match, which is still far from over.

1 of 11. Not enough. Our bench strength seems sadly depleted.

looks like they will have to bat out 15-20 overs more to secure an unlikely draw

6 of wickets have been single digit scores...basically all tail-end type batting. only Anamul reached 10.

Soumya reminds me of Junaid more then ash..body structure, batting style, consistency

Match drawn, mainly due to rain....

still impressive that the tail batted out however many overs today given the top order did jack in both innings. Hope the A team does better.

The match is drawn? Good rearguard action by the last pair....

Carlos should've declared overnight. He was too cautious, batting into Day Three....

Congrats to Soumya for the century. Especially since nobody else on his team hit a half century. So it seems the quality is there but his consistency is lacking. If he can manage to become more consistent, we could have a prospect on our hands. He's probably a few years away from the national team though. Best of luck to him.

wow its drawn.. well done boys.

Failure from WI - should have declared earlier. Test match is a strategic game.

Good, well done. Easily could have been all out.

wow didn't expect a draw. great job from ss in the 2nd innings, anamul and mominul need to score more runs or they won't be selected for higher honours.

When you've lost as many matches as the West INdies have in recent times, you tend to err, ridiculously, on the side of caution....

Though I still can't fathom the logic of batting into Day Three in a four-day game, when your overnight score is 521-8.
