View Full Version : NZ in Bangladesh 2013: News-Views-Prep

I know it's a bit early, but both of us have only one tour before this series. BAN is going to Zim and NZ is going to Eng. Unless both teams manage any bilateral tour, that's it for both of us until Oct 2013.

But I think it's a good start point for us to follow Newzealand Cricket and Cimpare our performances to have a clear idea, before the series. Our performance against NZ will speak tons, in terms of our improvement and future. NZ obviously will come with a lot of vengeance to take revenge of 'Banglawash' and that's probably one reason that they are coming to the same grounds and conditions to beat us instead of inviting us, to prove a point. On the other hand, if we can even beat them in the test series or ODI series, we will prove our point. So it's a very important series for both teams.

Meanwhile NZ Cricket has gone through some major changes and the new captain seems to be uniting the team. They have done fairly well in the recent series against Eng and Srilanka. The Captain seems to be getting a full support from the board and the cricket fraternity of NZ, here is one such open letter that puts a lots of trust of MeCullum the Captain of the team and expects him to take the team forward. It even goes on to depict him as a prospective legendary figure of NZ Cricket. The letter itself is very interesting and inspiring:

Jeremy Wells: Open letter to Brendon McCullum:


Dear Brendon,

Hope you don't think I'm odd writing an open letter when I could send you a private email, it's just that after Hoges' "Open Letter to New Zealand Batsmen", open letters have become fashionable again. And I'm not embarrassed to say that I'm a whore when it comes to fashion.

Let me start by congratulating you on your team's performance over the past few months. I've really enjoyed the way you've led the team this year. I think there were lots of cricket fans who wondered whether you were leadership material but you have shown that you are more than just a captain - you look like you've inspired the players around you to perform better too.

I understand it's not easy being a tattooed cricketer. Cricket supporters in New Zealand are a conservative bunch. To many tattoos are things you get when you're in port, drunk with your shipmates. They quietly live in fear that tattooed role models will influence their own kids to ink up. Some lay awake at night concerned their offspring may get out on Saturday morning pre-meditating a reverse sweep, then later head to the local tat house to have a nude woman scratched into their arm. Paranoia and superstition permeate our summer sport like Wet and Forget permeates the porous surfaces of pathways.

Nevertheless, most cricket fans in this country genuinely love the game and love being entertained. I've watched every game this year. I was there to see you play in Napier, and while we lost the game I'll never forget that 74 of yours.

It was great to see you and Ross Taylor batting together. Ross played the anchor role and fed you the strike brilliantly while you made the England bowlers look like schoolboys. They had no idea where to bowl to you. If they pitched up you went straight, if they bowled short you smashed them square. It was 36 balls of pure entertainment. There's something unusual about watching a cricketer wearing a stylised silver fern humiliate the opposition. It just doesn't happen that often. The last time I remember a New Zealand batsman dominated England was when Nathan Astle smashed that 222 against England at Lancaster Park. I still watch that DVD.

Our cricketing heroes are battlers. Look back and you'll see Hadlee, Chats and Wrighty. If a player in the 80s or 90s had style then there'd be a rumour about an incident involving tromboning that accompanied them.

But I'd like to think that we're moving on as a country. Last week's nail-biting draw against England gripped the nation. Dressed superbly by Ian Smith's energetic television commentary, test cricket put on its number ones and showed the public why it can't be beaten for dramatic tension.

I've heard a lot of whingers talk about our cricket team's lack of character and fight over the years. Normally they're people who have never faced bowlers who can deliver the ball fast enough to hurt. But I don't hear anyone criticising the team now. You can take a huge amount of credit for that.

So let me be the first to write an open letter congratulating you for your contribution to a really interesting summer of cricket - one of the best in living memory.

I'm sure in three years' time, when we've climbed the rankings and can consistently beat the best teams in the world, even diehard dissers like Mark Whatshisface from Radio Sport will be climbing on the bandwagon.

Tour Starts: October 2013

Venue: Bangladesh: 2 Tests, 3 ODI's & 1 T20

Lets prepare for a grand success in this tour...Zim tour could be a good preparation, since full team will be available in this tour. While we play Zim and NZ plays Eng.. We could draw comparisons for this tour....

This will be the tour of the year for us.:)

A bit early? 6 months in advance, yeah you could say that. We only play 3 ODIs??? Considering the whopping we gave them a few years back we should definitely warrant a 5 match ODI series. Gone are the days when New Zealand would just turn up, or any other team for that matter and thrash us 3-0 with heavy defeats at home. Or maybe they're scared of getting beat 5-0. BCB should try and get more games in.

No. Don't like this tour much. Seems like the only reason NZ agreed is to make up for the whitewash. If it was held in NZ, I would be more content, but in Bd, we have everything to lose.

All of a sudden, I'm more excited about the Zim series . Seems an infinitely better proposition than a home NZ series.

1. Make a sharp turner spin track and then put 9 fielders around the batsmen!
Start practicing on that exclusive pitch from now on! Dont waste time. We should know our pitch!
2. Play with 1 Pacer Max! Better without any pacer.
3. UDRS, UDRS, UDRS

I want a 2-0 Test Win at any cost! I repeat: At any cost!

If you want to win, turning track is the only option. You can have a highway batting paradise, but we won't win. You can have a pace track, and we will lose. This time I want to win. So it has to be spin track! Our batsmen will be fine on spin track. They will be just fine against Vettori. Shakib already proved it. They have only Vettori, we have Enam, Mosharraf, Gazi. All our part timers are also spinners!!

NZ have a decent pace attack with Southee, Boult, Martin and a Vettori who isn't as sharp as he used to be. They did win a test match in Sri Lanka so theyr not completely incompetent.
We will need our batsmen to show temperament, the ability to bat 150 overs if Shakib, Gazi are to win us tests against them. Rubel needs to up his game and prove whether he's test quality within this Zimbabwe Series.

Ya, I think that should be the idea. And our batsmen needs to start working on batting against spinners.

If we are having Anamul kind of footwork and as most of our batsmen gets deceived in flight, cant decide whether to play forward or from the crease, and gets LBW/bowld in the process. Then with a rank turner even Vetori and Patel combo will sweep through our batting order.

NZC Media Release re John Parker Interview

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) is disappointed and saddened by the recent attack made by John Parker and some unnamed individuals on NZC, BLACKCAPS Captain Brendon McCullum, senior players in the team, Coach Mike Hesson, and other former players.

There is nothing new in the material produced by John Parker and the issues involved have been widely and publicly discussed over recent months. There is an inference the Parker material came from a recent NZC meeting with former test captains. This is untrue.

....................

“Attacks such as this are divisive and unhelpful. For the sake of the game the focus should now been on the BLACKCAPS upcoming tour of England” says David White.

1. Please drop Riyad from the T20 team. Why do we need to play the same players in all 3 formats? We need to give some other players who had success playing lower down the order in BPL some chance. It's pretty clear, they can't do worse than Riyad in the shorter version.

2. Don't select players just for the sake of selecting them. Like Mominul for example. What's the point of selecting him today and make bat him so low down the order? I would rather we don't select him at all. We did that wtih Nayeem over and over again. Mominul is not an all rounder. He just so happens to know how to bowl, that's about it. He barely bowled in domestic cricket league. Let's not make another Nayeem out of him.

Ash's bride hunt is done n he is going to get married during that gap ... Tamim is getting married as well... Most probably Mushy too !! Shakib's reception is pending as well...So during this gap all the players will do is attend wedding after wedding n I am just wondering how the team will look with all them having a huge bhuri ;)

So don't expect another banglawash this time specially after such a long gap..

Don't get disheartened seeing our performance in Zim. This series will be in BD, all together a different thing. In Zim we didn't have any practice matches before any format, so we really couldn't adjust or get the best combination etc.

A home series for us; we will have much more effective spin attack and NZ will be struggling against spin, after the Eng series. So, we still can get a fav result against NZ.

I was going to reply something like this, but you were much faster.

I feel that the curator at SBNS does not understand the needs of the team. He should make a pitch that helps us against specific oppositions.

Besides, I had the impression that the English side was saving themselves for the actual tournament. This series was more like a preparation series.

I think so too.....

I think NZ's best format is tests.

there a decent LO side, but in tests they are poor in the batting as us

:facepalm:

Do you even follow cricket properly?

In the last test against England, NZ were demolished by Swann and that too on pitches not great for spin bowling

Yes they were but how will a team that has won a series in england come and lose to bd..i cant see us winning. Remember england 3 years back..And england are possibly the worst vs spin. The decks are flat and our batsmen are rubbish. And no i do not watch as many games as you may..i watch mostly bd games. The transition will be hard no doubt but exepct big runs from Williamson, Taylor and Mcculum.
