Good luck tigers. Utilize these limited test matches wisely. The way our "bondhus" are acting, test cricket may become a good bed time story for your kids..

Before that day comes, please give us a test win against a G8 team.

Thank you. .

I dont care how, but we need to win this Test. At any cost.

Possibly one of the last 2 Tests we are going to play in next 4-8 years.
Even the ZIM trip might be scrapped this year if ICC decides BD to play IC cup with associates.

No point worrying about this..... we have 2 tests to enjoy. Be it our last

I dont think the Lankan seam attack as good as the Kiwis seam attack. Their pace is ordinary, the surface usually does not assist any seam movement or a lot of bounce. Having said that, its dead winter! Mornings will be foggy and will have dew. It will be very hard to play the seamers. But see off the first of every day and the rest of the days will be a buffet for both batting lineups. Lot depends on Robiul who will have all the assistance to strike early.... Just needs to make use of it.

SL pacers are dangerous, probably not as consistent as NZ seam attack. eranga averages 34 now which obviously isn't outstanding but he's still solid and can be dangerous, lakmal still averages over 50 but he did bring it down quite a bit during the recent pakistan series so he's in form and at times he was as dangerous or perhaps even more dangerous than eranga. pradeep also brought his average down quite a bit and can bowl some really good spells. they've always had the talent but they pulled it together much better in the pakistan series, if they take that momentum into this series then they'll be bowling well and our batsmen should not underestimate them.

Biggest worry for me is the batting and bowling form of Shakib

No e of that matters if it is indeed our last Test series.

Batting wise I think we will be ok. Now there is less pressure on Tamim and Sakib. All of our top 8 has the potential to shine i.e score a century, and we don't need all of them to click at the same innings.

Yes SL FBs are more promising than some people realize. I watched the SL vs PAK test matches, I was pleasantly surprised by their wicket taking capabilities. However thier spin attack is average at best.

They have some good young batsman but they are not invincible.

the only bad thing is we may not have the bowling strength to get 20 wickets if its dead wicket.

I have a feeling we will be doing something special in this series. So I am not that much worries about them.

Herath is a good spinner other than I'm not sure how strong their spin is. I to saw the pak tests eranga especially impressed at times, lakmal and Pradeep also did well.

For SL batting I think silva is pretty good, dimuth has talent but has struggled at this level, Mathews has a mental block with tons it seems but still scores quite heavily, chandimal is still finding his feet but looks pretty good so far, p.jayawardene is a very good cricketer both with bat and gloves.

Our batting should be good I hope. Tamim and shakib are questions but shamsur, marshsll, mominul and nasir have all shown some sort of good form in the BCL and with the possibility of having both riyad and sohag in the lower order the batting goes deep.

My team:

1 tamim
2 shamsur
3 marshall
4 mominul
5 shakib
6 mushy
7 nasir
8 riyad
9 sohag
10 robiul
11 al amin

Depending on pitch conditions maybe swap riyad for rubel but I'm not sure there would be much difference regardless of conditions plus riyad gives a greater opportunity of more runs than rubel does. Despite razzak being a specialist I think riyad has shown more than he has with the ball at test level, also better with the bat.

If lala gets picked...praying they pick riyad and we can scrape something other than a loss..shkaibs batting as well..worried.. O well..

Come on tigers! :flag:

Gowza

i think riyad has a better chance of taking wickets than lala, he's also in better form than razzak is atm, plus he potentially adds much more with the bat.

well riyad's not a great option but when razzak and rubel are the other options....

wont matter if we win, Zim won a test and still they are in the same hot water as us

so its better that we forget about the icc draft proposal and enjoy the test

I seriously don't think that this is our last test. ICC can't pass this stupid proposal and hence we will continue to be a proud cricket nation. We will win inshallah at the meeting.

Go Tigers! You have given us so many proud days. We laughed for you, we cried for you, we had mix days for you. You are the only hope of this sad naiton. Make us proud again!

We are doing as much as we can to help you, to prevent the status taking off you. We will support you forever. Salute!

Never seen such a dead MT for a long time.

What happened to the people? Did I offend them so much that they are that upset/traumatized or even lost interest in kirket all together? Perhaps, we need a new controversy to get us going again?

I wouldn´t mind watching our boys playing against China, Nepal, UAE, Uganda and PNG. Might even enjoy our initial wins against China knowing well that China will kick our backends regularly within 7/8 years. Our boys get regular thrashings by S. Corea and Japan in hockey. Footballers thrashed by Maldives. So, a China Wash is very probable.

Cricket is not dead. We need China.

Power can corrupt anything, there is no exception.

China in all likelyhood will be the new bully (BCCI) if they where to rise in the cricketing world.

right... lets get down to action :D

I think considering the fog, the temperature, the dew... time to go with 3 pacers

my XI

Tamim
Shamsur
Marshal
Mominul
Mushfiq
Nasir
Shakib
Gazi
Robiul
Rubel
Al Amin

we will need the whole batting lineup in these conditions. Gazi-Shak are good enough. Nasir, Mominul even Marshal can provide short spells to rest those 2 and the seamers if needed. I just hope Rubel and Al Amin keeps things neat and tidy and we can easily create some pressure. Mushy alone can make a huge difference. He needs to know what options he has, who which bowler is ideal for which situation. Fielding setup is a huge factor... something Mushy messes up everytime a new batsman walks in or gets set. he doesnt know how to create pressure on a new batsman or manipulate the fielding when the batsman is set. Hope he improves, and if not, tamim can guide him too

I disagree. Our pacers are not good enough that we should play 3 of them specially given the fact that they cannot bat. Spin attack with Riyad/Gazi/Shakib will be much more effective then the pacers. Maybe we can hope for couple of early wickets from the pacers.

Sri Lankans are good at playing spin. So, three pacers a good idea IMHO.

We have Gazi as specialist, the we might have Mullah and Mominul can bowl as well. So no need for Razzak as the second specialist spinner IMHO.

Game is in less than two days away. A test match after a long time. Against a good opponent. We had a good last test and almost ran NZ close. All these reasons are enough to be excited. Kintu tarporo kemon kemon jani lagtese. Interest kom kom. Maybe its coz of the fear that this may be it. The lurking fear that we may never play in whites anymore. The slow death.

Its like getting married after flirting and going out with many girls. Yes, initially got rejected by many but now slowly with some growing confidence getting some responses. But now parents (BCCI) saying to get married and settle down with just one girl while I know I have potential to be with so many. That's how iDumb feels. BD cricket and iDumb's life has just collided. Is this life worth living? That's why we should protest.

Yes we should say "No" to our parents. We should demand that we need to do "living together' first with each of those prospects and only then we can agree to get marrried with one of those.

Looks like Imrul is more determined this time: adjusted technical aspect as well as addressed mental aspects of playing long. He took his "drop from national team" as a challenege and worked hard in the background. Will it be enough?

We have to waite and see. But I like this kind of attitute...no whining... just working hard for his next opportunity.

If two pacers cannot get any wickets, how much chance are there that the 3rd one will get any more wickets?

if the quality is not good enough, increasing quantity will not address your quality problem.

‘ব্যাটিংটা এখন সহজ মনে হয়’
ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক | আপডেট: ০১:৪৩, জানুয়ারি ২৫, ২০১৪ | প্রিন্ট সংস্করণ

ইমরুল কায়েসঢাকা প্রিমিয়ার লিগে ভালো খেলার লক্ষ্য পূরণ করেছেন। বিসিএলেও দুই ম্যাচে ভালো করে দুই বছর পর আবার ডাক পেলেন জাতীয় দলে। শ্রীলঙ্কা সিরিজের জন্য প্রথম দিনের অনুশীলন শেষে ইমরুল কায়েস বলছেন, তিনি এখন বদলে যাওয়া ব্যাটসম্যান
 অনেক দিন পর আবার জাতীয় দলের অনুশীলনে, কেমন লাগল?
ইমরুল কায়েস: অনেক, অনেক ভালো লেগেছে। আরও ভালো লাগবে যদি টেস্ট খেলার সুযোগ পাই ও ভালো করতে পারি।
 নির্বাচকেরা বলেছেন, গত কিছুদিনে আপনার ভালো খেলার পুরস্কার দলে ডাক পাওয়া। ঢাকা লিগ বা বিসিএলে নির্দিষ্ট কোনো লক্ষ্য ছিল?
ইমরুল: প্রিমিয়ার লিগে আমি ভালো করতে চেয়েছিলাম। জানতাম, ঢাকা লিগের পারফরম্যান্সকে নির্বাচকেরা সব সময় গুরুত্ব দেন। তাই লক্ষ্য ছিল, প্রিমিয়ার লিগে ভালো করতেই হবে। সেই লক্ষ্যে সফল হয়েছি (দেশের ব্যাটসম্যানদের মধ্যে সর্বোচ্চ ৬৫৫ রান)। বিসিএল নিয়ে সত্যি বলতে ভাবনা খুব বেশি ছিল না। জাতীয় লিগে খুব ভালো করতে চেয়েছিলাম। কিন্তু বিসিএলে রান করার পরই সুযোগটা এসে গেল।
 ফর্মে ফেরার পেছনের কারণ কী? কোনো পরিবর্তন এনেছেন ব্যাটিংয়ে?
ইমরুল: টেকনিক্যালি কিছু পরিবর্তন করেছি। তবে মানসিক পরিবর্তনটা ছিল বেশি গুরুত্বপূর্ণ। টেস্ট ম্যাচের জন্য যে ধরনের মানসিকতা থাকতে হয়, সেটিতে উন্নতি করেছি বলে বিশ্বাস আমার। অনেক পরিশ্রম করেছি।
 টেকনিক্যাল পরিবর্তনগুলোর কথা একটু নির্দিষ্ট করে বলবেন?
ইমরুল: আসলে এটা তো ব্যাট-বলের ব্যাপার সব সেভাবে বোঝানো মুশকিল। ফাহিম স্যারের সাথে (বিসিবির গেম ডেভেলপমেন্ট ম্যানেজার নাজমুল আবেদীন) অনেক কাজ করেছি ব্যাটিং নিয়ে। ব্যালান্সসহ টুকটাক কিছু সমস্যা ছিল। ফাহিম স্যার এসব দেখিয়ে দিয়েছেন, আমিও অনুশীলন করে ঠিক করার চেষ্টা করেছি। এ জন্য ব্যাটিং করে এখন অনেক মজা পাই। ব্যাটিংটা অনেক সহজও মনে হয়।
 বাইরে থাকার সময়টা কতটা হতাশার ছিল?
ইমরুল: যেকোনো খেলোয়াড়ের জন্যই এর চেয়ে হতাশার আর কিছু নেই। আমি যখন টিভিতে অন্যদের খেলা দেখতাম, খুব খারাপ লাগত। ভাবতাম আবার কবে আমি খেলব! অনেক ভাবনা মাথায় ঘুরপাক খেত। নিউজিল্যান্ডকে হোয়াইটওয়াশ করার পর মনে হয়েছে এই অনুভূতিটা আমি জানি (২০১০ সিরিজে ছিলেন দলে)। এবার মিস করেছি আনন্দটা। তবে নিজেকে বুঝিয়েছি, মানুষের জীবনে উত্থান-পতন আসেই। সব সময় আশা ছিল ফিরবই।
 বাদ পড়ার আগে ১৬ টেস্ট খেলেও আপনার পারফরম্যান্স খুব ভালো ছিল না (১৭.১৫ গড়ে রান ৫৪৯, ১টি ফিফটি)। সে সময় পারেননি কেন বলে মনে হয়?
ইমরুল: টেস্ট ক্রিকেট খুব কঠিন জায়গা। ওয়ানডের মতো রিল্যাক্সড থাকার সুযোগ নেই। সব দিকেই একদম নিখুঁত থাকতে হয়। আর মানসিক ব্যাপারটা টেস্টে খুবই গুরুত্বপূর্ণ। মানসিকভাবে শক্ত না হলে টেস্ট ক্রিকেটে টিকে থাকা কঠিন।
 দলে এখন অনেক প্রতিযোগিতা। ভালো করতে না পারলে আগের মতো বেশি সুযোগ পাবেন না। এটা কি ভাবাচ্ছে?
ইমরুল: দল এখন অনেক বদলে গেছে। অনেক ধারাবাহিক, অনেক ভালো খেলছে। জায়গা নিয়ে প্রতিযোগিতাও অনেক বেড়েছে। তবে ভাবনাটা আমি আমার মাথায় ঢুকতে দিতে চাই না। চাপ নিলে কাজের কাজ কিছু হয় না। আমি নির্ভার থাকতে চাই। দুই বছর বাইরে ছিলাম, কষ্ট লেগেছে। কিন্তু দিন তো কেটেছে, সময় চলে গেছে। সুযোগ পেলে ঘরোয়া ক্রিকেটের মতোই নিজের স্বাভাবিক খেলা খেলতে চাই।[/বাংলা]

I think there is a choice to be made between razzak and riyad. Though there are only 3 left handers in SL team but sangakara himself is like 2 batsmen for us, so i guess an extra off spinner can be handy, specially when riyad is in good form with the ball.

খুব কঠিন সময়ে আবারও টেস্ট ক্রিকেটের শুভ্র পরিসরে মুশফিক-বাহিনী। একদিকে মোটামুটি বিরতিতে আবার এই কঠিন আঙ্গিনার পরীক্ষা, তার ওপর তিন ক্রিকেটশক্তির বিতর্কিত প্রস্তাবের মুখে নিজেদের প্রমাণ করার চাপ। শ্রীলঙ্কার বিপক্ষে আগামীকাল থেকে মাঠে গড়ানো ঢাকা টেস্ট তাই মুশফিকদের জন্য অগ্নিপরীক্ষাই। কিন্তু বাংলাদেশ দলপতি ওসব নিয়ে ভাবছেন না। তিনি চান নিজেদের পারফরম্যান্স, ‘খেলোয়াড়েরা সামর্থ্যমতো খেলতে পারলে যেকোনো কিছুই সম্ভব।’

তিন পরাশক্তির প্রস্তাব, আর এ নিয়ে ক্রিকেট জগতে তোলপাড় ছুঁয়ে যেতে বাধ্য বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটারদেরও। কিন্তু মুশফিক একটু দূরেই থাকতে চান এসব ব্যাপার থেকে। বিতর্কিত ব্যাপার-স্যাপার ছাপিয়ে মাঠের ক্রিকেটেই দলের সব খেলোয়াড়ের পূর্ণ মনোযোগ রয়েছে বলেই জানিয়েছেন তিনি, ‘দেখুন, আমরা বছরের খুব কমই টেস্ট খেলার সুযোগ পাই। যেগুলো খেলি, পূর্ণ মনোযোগ দিয়েই খেলি। সবার মনোযোগ ক্রিকেটেই রয়েছে।’

Bad news indeed. Lalla is a horrible when he throws that red cherry. I would rather have Riyad than Lalla. Riyad has performed really well wirh the ball recently and is much better with the bat than Razzaq.

And would love to see kopa in the squad. Big test for Marshall. If he fails to deliver, Imrul can replace him

Kopa Shamsu or Imrul with Tamim? What do you guys think? I am leaning toward Kopa, since Imrul was out of the scene for a long time and may need time to adjust. Besides, we had him before. I want to see a L/R combination as well.

Gowza
January 26, 2014, 05:35 PM
obviously backing their specialist spinner in razzak but do they suddenly expect him to become a lot better or something? comparing what riyad and razzak have done as bowlers in test cricket, added to that what riyad potentially offers with the bat compared to razzak, plus recent FC form i really think it's a no-brainer who should be in the XI.

as for the batting, i really hope they go with shamsur and marshall, marshall only just got into the XI and hasn't been given enough chances plus got a ton recently (so you can't pick someone ahead of him on form because that wouldn't make sense) and shamsur, well if you make it into the squad and are competing for a spot which hasn't ever over the course of 14 years been secure and you just scored a double ton, well it would be pretty silly for someone else to be selected ahead of them, he also got the half century so it's not like it was a one score wonder type of thing either, plus he got that incredible 96 in the ODI and imrul has done nothing better than him domestically in FC cricket or internationally of recent times (obviously hasn't had the chance internationally but you shouldn't drop a performing player imo).

We should play Shamsur. Imrul might've played before but he hasn't played international cricket since 2011. So he's basically starting over again. And as you say his past record isn't very good. So Shamsur should get the nod but it's up to team management.

Gowza
January 26, 2014, 06:05 PM
there are so many things to consider between shamsur and imrul, but i think at the end of it, even if it's not by much that shamsur should get the nod.

but i will say this, shamsur has some good recent international form, imrul doesn't, that and his double ton and the fact imrul didn't do well in his original test match run (even if it was 3+ years ago) are probably the deciding factor, at least it would be for me if i was management.

so instead of riyad or razzak we will play a 3rd pacer? not sure that would be our best team but it would at the very least give us a chance to compare rubel and al-amin in a test match.

Sri lanka are no longer a team only reliant on Sanga and Jayawardane with Chandimal and Mathews maturing. If Bangladesh are to win the pacers need to take 3-4 wickets atleast. Anyway check my blog where I have tried to analyse both teams based on stats available on Statsguru at Munazirsays.blogspot.com with the title:


Will Bangladesh beat SriLanka in test cricket this time?

January 26, 2014, 07:29 PM
Chandimal maybe quality but he's not played tests long enough to rely on him, he started off well in ODIs and fell away. Mathews is solid obviously as he averages 40+ but he's also got an issue with scoring hundreds so SL can't rely on him to make regular big scores yet either.

Both teams batting lineups are pretty evenly balanced this time. The only worry is SL just had a test series against Pakistan while Bangladesh have been playing NCL which is better than nothing.
