Once upon a time in south Asia, there were two Superstars from two countries. They both were similarly loved by their countrymen; but only one of them did live up to the expectations in the battle of Chittagong on March 18, 2014. Do you want to get to full story?

Here it is ..

having watched Nepal V Hong Kong i will say that Nepal have a couple of decent looking batsmen, the captain obviously, and malla did well last game but their openers pun and khakurel looked to have good technique and footwork and they obviously did well with the ball, don't get complacent.

yes - the pitch in Dhaka looked like something that was in caribbean last T20 domestic - low scoring games with bowler dominance. Afg totally misread it and wanted to blast their way out. It's a different ball game for some - but an old one for the initiated. Khair....

This is Nepal's format. They finished 11th in the ODI qualifiers which means they are like the 21st ranked team in ODIs. We took care of Afghans well under 100 runs, we need to make sure we do the same with the remaining 2 Associates.

I will be watching BD vs Nepal at the stadium. In Shaa Allah we will win :)

BTW, the pitch looks green but I don't suppose either team will be able to take advantage of it. Mashrafe will be crucial. I would say keep the same team or atleast play Rubel instead of Reza.

ReZ_1
March 16, 2014, 11:08 PM
Having seen their game against hong kong.. i don't see any threat from their batsmen or bowler.. the hongkong bowlers bowled on their pads in the initial overs which allowed them to score some runs. and their spin bowlers are like our razzak.. bowling without spin.. i guess it won't be a problem for our batsmen.

And Tamim didn't look all too great today. So can he hold up against Nepalese bowlers?

What to do if win the toss?

Yes apparently our media(like most SC countries) are of the worst breed.

We should not take Nepal or HK lightly especially in the T20 arena. Remember, one Good/Bad over can change the entire game. Before Shakib got rid of the first 2 batsman, Afghanistan were in a decent position- 36/1 in 5.1 overs looking good for a 140ish score on a pitch not suited for big scores.

These 2 matches are also crucial in the sense that it will allow us to test the ability of Sabbir and Nasir before the main round given we qualify ofcourse which we should. Also, an emphatic victory over these 2 teams will enrich our team with confidence and some momentum before the main round. A rusty win like that against UAE on the other hand will not be great feeling for us.

Can'tunderstand the selection of reza..picked as a bowler who is ssimply not good enough to bowl more than an over..and worthless with the bat strivkibg below 100.

Sabbir and Nasir can ball their full quota and would still have a lower economy than reza 75/100 times..not to mention the spin that is being extracted from the track.

I say pick shamsur or Momin.

Not sure against Nepal. But if we bat first against HK, I don't see any reason for us not to get 200+.

Their bowling is probably the worst in this WC.

Jadukor
March 17, 2014, 04:25 AM
If the pitch is anything like the one we played Afghanistan, then going for too many runs might become a seriously bad move. I think that was a 120-140 pitch at most. The batsman need to be careful in assessing what sort of pitch it is and then set a target to achieve.

I'll say, send opponent bat first in those situations. We scored our lowest ever 50 over totals last 50 over world cup batting first. We were not surely that bad as that looked like.

We are playing in CTG, where there wasn't any big turn like was in Mirpur.

That pitch had greens. I am sure the pitch we will play will be shaved tomorrow morning. It will look hard looking from above but from first ball we'll see turn and bounce.

I think he was intended to be in the team to bowl the middle-death overs. He did indeed have a limited role yesterday but he adds a lot in the fielding department which is crucial in t20s as think we need to start looking beyond batting/bowling capabilities alone in this format of the game. That run out of Mongol yesterday was outstanding as those moments of brilliance are game changers as he seems to hit the stumps very often.

^Mominul and shamsur are excellent fielder too if not better than reza.

Yameen
March 17, 2014, 05:25 AM
Disagree, they are good fielders but Reza is extremely quick and very good at cutting down angles across the field. Good throwing arm too as we saw yesterday.

WorldCup11
March 17, 2014, 05:48 AM
The way this team beats afghans, they deserves to go next match unchanged. Those two direct hit runouts were vital.

Only change I'll suggests is Razzak only if pitch doesn't help spin. Razzak could be deadly bowler if pitch assist, otherwise on a flat or batting friendly track he doesn't use his brain like Shakib does.

Nadim
March 17, 2014, 06:07 AM

The jury is out on Mominul

Mominul is not the fastest of fielder's around and if I remember he dropped a couple of catches in the Death overs against SL in the 2nd ODI. Shamsur is a safe fielder but I think Reza Kallis is a better fielder which apparently is his ONLY strong point.

Only reason I open these threads was because no one else was keen to open one. Everyone was so scared to get kufa opobad after what happened since the beginning of this year.

If you closely look at the thread against UAE, I opened that only few hours before that match. Then again I felt nobody will open a thread against Ire ,same fear and loosing to associate opobad.

Kalpurush da was only brave one and he opened vs afg 3 days earlier the match.

I hope after these 4 successive wins fans emotions and expectations will come back to where it was end of NZ series and they will be jumping to "who will open it first" contests. I will have no chance that time. :(

Remember, once I mentioned "Team performance is like financial curves - nothing goes straight up or nothing goes straight down. On the other hand BD fans emotions are like digital signals - either totally up or completely down" :)

I believed in my own theory and also believe BD cricket is in long term uptrend, we only had minor hiccup in the middle to go up even further:)

Would not go with Nafees and Alok. This is the A team and we should only go for potential national team players for the next T20 WC. I really doubt these two will get another go in the T20 side.

I am however at a loss at who I would select instead especially the opener slot :S Liton perhaps. Maybe give Marshall Ayub a go as well assuming he is fit?

Reza is more of a back up bowler for a change whom captain can trust. His bowling suits our pitches, not to mention he is the highest wicket taker in domestic league. And he has not done a foot wrong in first T20 match to get unselected.

If the average BD fan is not very knowledgeable, why would the average Nepali fan be?

Perhaps, your average Nepali is a fast learner than us? Do you think only our cricketers are slow?

I would argue our cricketers and experts are a very good indicator of our people. And, they are a privileged bunch, too, compared to the rest of the demography. They get to travel the world, have access to expert helps, "media training" and what not.

I may come across too harsh or self-flagellating. But, in my mind, thats the honest but bitter reality. I find people/fans from other countries to be more knowledgable...even the Irish. Running the risk of being voted the most popular member here in BC, I don´t hesitate to say that most members/fan here -with exception to a very few- shows very little knowledge or understanding of cricket. We are only good at chapabazi. Thats our contemporary songskriti in a nutshell- unfortunately.

Would not go with Nafees and Alok. This is the A team and we should only go for potential national team players for the next T20 WC. I really doubt these two will get another go in the T20 side.



I didn't have just the T20 cricket in my mind only. Nafees, Aftab and Alok are still young. In many countries people make debuts in their 30s. There must also be a plan to rehabilitate the out of form or discarded cricketers back into the fold again. Like in life, ups and downs are part of the cricket, too. Its about management. Cricketers like Aftab, Alok, Ashraful, Nafees, Shahadat or Enamul are part of that scarce resources. You simply don't bin them like that. You recycle them. All of them have the ability to do well again. Of course, it will depend on them and how they are managed or utilized by BCB.

You do have use time, energy and money on old players with a hope of them returning to back to their old form. There's no point if the players past their 30's. Particularly with our diet, most players huff and puff their way towards getting runs. New players should be given priority no matter what.

Present, Sir!!!

The fans of other countries can't be compared with ours. You said Ireland, cricket is a minor sport there and the ones that follow the game thus have sharp interest. On the other hand, cricket right now is the one and only major sport for us. It dominates front back middle pages of newspapers. There are no second sport. Football is long dead and very few know who our national captain is. So all 160 million of us, in a way or another is a cricket fan.

But people in this forum, most of them, are very knowledgeable about cricket. Some of us make knee-jerk irrational just out of frustration. But we all know much more than the basics of this game. So I would like to present you a challenge.

Let's have a cricket knowledge face-off. BCF vs mufi_02. This will be the first round as I consider myself one of the least knowledgeable. If you beat me, you will meet more challenging contestant for next round all the way to boss, sohel bhai, razab bhai and then ultimately Zee the Shan.

So sir are you ready for the challenge? char chokka hoi hoi, eibar apne jaiben koi?? :D

2. how can mash correct his terrible slog over bowling record? historically what is he doing wrong?
3. Is Riyad the new ash? Explain why or why not
4. What do you think bhotka Shehzad said to Tamim?

Well said bro

I have always had the feeling that our fans are no different from the cricketers. Like the cricketers, the fans are passionate. But when it comes to professionalism and knowledge base, we are far behind most other countries, even the Irish. I have seen plenty of Irishmen on various forums and even on CI and their comments surprised myself. Forget average BDeshis, these folks seem to have better knowledge about cricket development than myself, although in my defence I am still a youth.

Its just that our fans are 99% emotion, 1% logic. One cannot understand why people were dancing in the stadium in the 1st T20 against SL when we needed 3 from 1 and the match was not over or a bunch of girls crying over a cricket match, or stoning the bus of the opposition team that humbled us in the World Cup. At some point of time, I tend to field that we fans get what we deserve, the type of cricketers that are no different from ourselves - Emotional but Unprofessional. Thank God we have Shakib and Mushfiq who seemed to be both professional and knowledgeable.

If I were a member of the squad, I would not take Nepal lightly. Unlike Afghanistan, they do not seem to be overconfident or have anything to lose.

Before the tournament began, Afghanistan were more focused at making it to the main stage whereas Nepal are simply here to make a mark. And who would not forget that Nepal are on a high, beating Hong Kong by 80 runs. We should win no matter what but this may turn out to be a banana peel. Don't want to be humilated no matter what.

In Shaa Allah will be at the stadium supporting the tigers.

Much more relaxed for today's game as a fan. Against Afghanistan my fear was with their big hitting capabilities. They scored more than 100 runs in the last 9 or 10 overs against us in the Asia Cup.

With Nepal I believe even if we fail with the ball we can make up with our batting. They are a promising cricket team but our guys are simply much more equipped to handle whatever Nepal manage to throw at us. Hopefully bowlers can restrict them within 140 runs in Ctg.

Yes, the players shouldn't be complacent but c'mon, we are talking about Nepal here against players like Mushfique, Shakib, Tamim, Razzaque who are all now international stars because they have attacked and played with world class players!! what will happen when we face Pakistan, India? fold in 30 runs, expect a softer defeat? are we back in 1997 days of thinking of only qualifying? That day is long gone!! That 'be afraid' mindset wont win matches and will only make the team lose focus on its own abilities and plan and may even work against them like it did against AFG during the ODIs.

Hook, line and sinker! I too believe that 'what will happen if we lose' mindset was to blame for our loss against Afg. No less credit to our media people as well. In the last match our players wanted to thrash Afg and thash they did. We should learn from Sri Lanka on how to handle these teams.

Please understand that this needs to be done so that the very few intellectuals that do grace us will continue to give their blessings to us, the average forumer. You must understand how frustrating it is for them to not see the majority talk about the merit of the ball and instead engage in "faltu" discussions.

How to know if you are murkho or intellectual?

Just check every morning after taking a dump whether a Wisden cricket almanack is floating in the toilet bowl. If not then you are unfortunately like me my friend.

That would be a distant dream

But both you and I know that Afghanistan were more than keen to qualify to the next round hence they had that extra bit of pressure on them. They felt that going to the super 10 was necessary.

Nepal, well they are here to enjoy, to get the feel of the T20 WC. Afghans have qualified for 2 previous WT20 editions only to get their bums handed to them on a platter. As much as they claimed they had no pressure, I am pretty sure the thought of qualification was what resulted in such horror performance, oh and obviously the fact that they took us lightly and underestimated the potential of the best allrounder in the world.

My take on this

India--over 1 billion people..so the number of trolls even if significantly low, it'll look huge by comparison

Pak--Same case

Nepal need to be dismembered and cast aside just like Afghanistan was. Hope the boys show the same intensity. Forget 140, Nepal cannot be allowed to score more than 100. If we held AFG to 72, giving Nepa who are far weaker anything more than 99 would be completely unacceptable.

Can't believe there are some Nepalese on CI who think they have a chance in this match. Then again probably Indians posing as Nepalis.

With AFG, NEP, HK...we should not concede 100 in any of these qualifying games. Period.

I have no problem when a fan dreams about a win. The problem with AFG was their players who went on and on about it.

Hopefully Hongkong can send the Mighty Afghans packing and then Nepal does the rest giving them a complete whitewash sendoff. Many Afghan fans believe Afghan loss was just an upset! Their players are thinking they have become PAK, IND or some mighty world beaters. BCB needs to remember how they behaved against us and how much their players and fans ridiculed BD off the field. The way they were throwing balls at Tamim was like he wanted to hurt him real bad. I am surprised he was not fined after that incident. The ball could have hit him anywhere causing serious injury...that was borderline barbaric...

Agreed. But I think all these teams are a lot stronger than we think and on top it is a T20. Lets hope we make sure we win first, the margin will work out well itself. None of our spinners are totally unplayable which I really wanted to see. Its a difficult Worldcup for us, specially what we have gone through during the last few weeks...and its gets really tough in the next round...

^^ A win very much expected and given...but what I meant to say is not to throw away wickets just to hit hard and then hit out. I would take a clinical 10 wicket win even it takes 19 overs, rather than a 3 wicket win in 10 overs...

so we can dream to beat Australia/Pak even though we have beaten them only once but nepal cant dream to win against us?..any why would indians pose as Nepalis to say Nepal has a chance against Bangladesh?

if you cant believe you can win whats the point of you coming to play in the first place?

one thing for sure, Nepal won't do as bad as Afghan,
Afghan's really didn't help themselves,
Against Nepal it will be a good fight.
I say bat first and score 175+ and then bowl field well.
And lets go with the same team

I won't be surprised to see guys fall into customary complacency after the emotional high of putting them uppity Afghans in their place. Although I harbor no doubt as to the outcome of this game in our favor, I don't see a repeat of the previous performance. Our Nepali brothers aren't a bad side at all BTW.

Just watching Asraful's interview. He suggested " Our first 3 batsmen should be more aggressive and strike rate needs to be round 130. This will a factor when we will be playing with big teams in the next round".

Dude, don't just talk BS without looking at the stats. In his 6 T20 INT, he average 13.66 with a SR of only 113.

Tamim fifty will be counter productive while setting big scores. He will hit a boundary and then play three dot balls. I want him to give us a start and then not stall the momentum further with his 29 ball 30s

He was leading run scorer in the bpl and i thought you're good enough to now 6 t20s are nothing to judge a player even mushy only averages 18 with a sr of 118. how about giving him a game to see whether its benefiting or not, its better than playing reza and using him for an over.

And btw, Calm your sack.

Mine coming up shortly.

Anyways, the team should exclude Reza.....his skillset are not worthy of T20. Wish Zia was there instead.

Al-Amin should get another chance to build his confidence but if he fails again then take Reza and opt to open with him instead. BD pacers without any batting skill is a non-sense inclusion.

Hey Guys,

logged in after 9 years...I am from Germany...my roots are from Bangladesh so will watch the game today from Germany...I think one of the few cricket and BD supports in whole Germany ;) I am just praying and hoping that Bangladesh will win this one! This will release a lot of pressure for the last game!

really could have played shamsur in this match, why do we need 6 bowlers/bowling all rounders (not including part timers like nasir who can be more than useful or shabbir)? shakib, mash, al amin, razzak, reza, riyad. could have given shamsur some time in the middle in this match, it's nepal, with all due respect we don't need that many bowlers (but even if it wasn't do we really need to stack the bowling like that and weaken the batting?).
