If the match is abandoned, we still get through to QF, right?

^^ According to weather.com, it was 40% chance of rain on Monday a few days back but now they're saying it's 20% with partly cloudy. Morning clouds followed by afternoon sun, highs 24 to 26ºC and lows 13 to 15ºC.

But yeah if it is abandoned we go through, no way England can comeback after that!

Weather looks fine now, shouldn't be an issue.

Given the pitch and England weakness, we must play an extra spinner. I'm actually tempted to play 2, one for Bijoy (SS opens) and one for Rubel.

Overall, England is better team than we are and they are desperate at this point. It won't be easy. Spin gamble might be our only way.

Isam confirmed Mash not playing the match.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-cricket-world-cup-2015/content/story/843811.html

I wonder if management will bring in both Shafiul and Taijul for next match (in place of Mash and Anam), or bring in Momin and one of Taj/Shafi.

shuziburo
March 5, 2015, 12:29 PM
If Mash cannot play, I would bring in Taijul in his place, Shafiul in Rubel's place, and Imrul/Mominul in place of Anamul. Mominul could open, if he is played. But, Imrul has been in good form!

SS
March 5, 2015, 12:34 PM
Mash's initial wicket to wicket bowling and overall pace bowling will be missed dearly. A fit Mash is the only quality pacer we have so far. Can Shafiul/Taskin step up? We really missed a qualiy second spinner in our last game. The problem is whom he can replace?

The last time we played England, we beat them. In fact the last 3 matches against England reads 2-1 in our favour!

And then we will go into the match against New Zealand with a 7-0 last 7 matches h2h.

Mash was limping through the later half of the Scotland innings. I doubt he'll recover before the England game. If he has torn calf muscle, he'll miss the NZ game as well.

imtiaz82
March 5, 2015, 01:19 PM
Mashrafe was also unable to avoid the trail of bad luck, or, to be precise, injury. The Narail Express was struggling to walk at the latter stages of Scotland’s innings and, as a result, did not bowl his remaining two overs.

However, there is nothing to worry about for the veteran fast bowler as he later informed that he only pulled his calf muscle and is expecting to be fit for the important match against England this Monday in Adelaide.

Makes no freaking sense that we have to travel back to Aus to play this game in 2 days. And then come back to NZ. While both of our opponents in the mean time will get their tan on. Not to mention if we make the QF, that's one more time we have to travel in short time. Can someone figure out which team has traveled the most in this WC? (Not coming to the WC but during WC)

Yeah its a calf issue...I saw him limping on his own power then stretching his calf. Didn't bowl after that. He should be fine with a 96 hr layover. He is a bagher bachcha.

I feel your pain, I live in Perth. I gave away my Ban V Eng tickets for free. I would have gone but right now there is a lot of work load from uni, and obviously the flight prices. But if bd goes to QF- I am definitely flying to Melbourne

If Mash doesn't play we should play Shafiul- he has had huge contribution in both our victories against England. Maybe he will do it again :P

I am going to WACA today to watch India v WI. For the first time I will be cheering for India. If we finish A4 by beating Eng, I would much rather have India as our opponent than SA.

I was always going to be neutral for this match, however, as a long term supporter of England would like to see the country not qualify for the quarter finals, and I think it would mean a whole lot more in Bangladesh if a quarter final place could be secured.

Why do I want England to lose? I believe that a loss at this stage would allow for the sacking of Peter Moores the coach, a rethinking of the banality of appointing Paul Downton and James Whitaker in their positions, and the continued retention of Stuart Broad, who is just a bad apple.

Not that it is likely to happen but I would like to see a clearout of the team, with the likes of Broad gone and Petersen to be brought into the England fold as early as possible. Only a humiliating defeat would allow for that to happen. For there to be a strong and attractive England cricket team, Petersen is a must.

I am sorry that the above seems like a moan. So how can Bangladesh win? Well, the fielding really has to improve. The running between the wicket has to improve too. The likes of Tamim needs to dominate from the front, however, there is a better pace attack to deal with for England. It is not a world class ODI attack but it is several notches better than Scotland. If there is nothing on the pitch, Anderson does not swing the white ball down under. His head goes down too quickly. Stuart Broad has to be carefully managed and encouraged to lose his rhythm. This is not difficult. He is badly out of form so the Bangladeshi batsmen need to score off him heavily, without losing their wickets to him. Finn is expensive but gets wickets. Be on your guard against him. Woakes is actually underrated and one bowler who needs to be very carefully managed. On his day, the bearded Ali is rather a useful spinner. Don't try to hit him out of the park as he is better than he looks.

In terms of batting the class players are Root and Bell. Ali will either score heavily or get frustrated and get out. I am not sure if Balance will play, but if he does, cut out the singles. The two pinch hitters in the middle order are actually capable of doing much damage on their day. The captain is woefully out of form and not a very good captain really.

The way to defeat England would be to be inventive. You really have to believe that England is a truly regimental team. They plan for all eventuality, however, there is not enough brainpower there to work things out if these plans do not come to fruition.

England is odds on favourite. Bangladesh would have to play 50% better than yesterday's performance. However, England is the only top test team in this ODI tournament that Bangladesh is truly capable of beating. Believe, believe and believe. Stop every run possible and improve the rate of hitting the wickets when it comes to fielding! The bowlers need to control the innings, pace is not everything but variety and control is.

Hey, it's Puck our Telegraph loving bilati fan. How you been man - been a while? Completely agree with your points about the match, though I'm shocked that you are not toting the establishment view and actually championing for a ferriner (South African albeit) to come back and for a salt-of-the-earth Englishman like Broad to be banished. There is hope for you yet :)

Also- if Bangladesh and Ireland can qualify for QF by knocking out England and Pakistan, it will definitely force David Richardson to consider scrapping the 10-Team-WC model for 2019. A 10 team world cup just feel like an extended version of The Champions Trophy, and would be much more boring to watch. And the irony is it was England who wanted a 10 team world cup, their argument was Associate nations don't put up any competition. I would just love to see their reactions and what they have to say after England returns home right after group stages, much like most associate nations.

Bowlers need to get it together. The amount of hit me balls watching these highlights is unbelievable. Bowling length balls at death is suicide. Far too many length balls, short hit me balls. Need yorkers, wide yorkers, slower short ball and if short balls are to be bolwed then as a surprise at the badge. As for spinners to many long hops from riyad. Energy in the field also needed many looked uninterested.

Best case scenario for Bangladesh:

We win the remaining two matches and we end up second from the table in the best case

Worst case scenario: no matter how much Bangladesh screws up, they will end up fifth from the group stages in the worst case.

Actually, there is no possible way for us to finish second. Australia/ SL (whoever wins the head to head game is likely to finish second, having a NRR advantage).

Best case scenario: Win against England, lose against NZ (or vice versa). Finish 4th and face off India in QF at MCG, where we will have a small chance of winning, and making history.


2nd best case scenario: Win against England and NZ- Finish 3rd in group, and face off against SA in QF- With SA's current pace bowling and opening and middle order batting, we stand no chance against SA, our WC journey ends there.

Worst case scenario: We lose both games, go back home. Papol mama makes sure tigers get no game before SA tour, that too in the monsoon season.

I would much rather take my chances with Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Ashwin, Shami and Yadav rather then Hashim Amla, De Villiers, Tahir, Steyn, Morkel and Abbott. SA has arguably better pace bowlers than India, and in a fast wicket like MCG, not only will they smash a 400 against us, but will also restrict us to a score below 200. So best avoid that 3rd spot (advice for all teams).

India bound to lose one or two games. after what they have been doing. No team has really pushed them hard enough I think. Only team that could have were South Africa and they crumbled under pressure.

Yes that was a bit of a fluke IMO, SA was the better side. I guess India did well with the bat to post a huge total, and SA just collapsed in pressure. But if SA batted first that game, it would have been a different story.

Yes India beat SA but remember this, India's strength is our strength too. India have a quality spin attack and we are decent against spin and they being good players of spin, we have some decent spinners who won't make the job easy for them.

Guys,

I sympathize and 100% agree with management using 8 batsmen in the first four matches. Now that Alhamdulillah we have moved past the associate fear, I think we can freely use an extra spinner and seven batsmen. I would keep the exact same batting lineup as last game, except i would take Add Sunny or Taijul. Rubel bowled well enough in the Afghanistan game for me to give him one more chance, I still have faith that he may come good.

Why are so many "fans" praying for another day of rain and washout? Surely this is world cup cricket and the point of the competition - if I'm not mistaken - was to compete in playing cricket and trying to WIN matches?

We are lucky enough not to have had to play AUS and gain that one point, otherwise that game had the potential to really dent our NRR. It seems more people are just content with gaining points from washouts and being carried through to the next round like passengers as opposed to actually competing with other teams and earning a place in the QF by a means of actually playing cricket and winning matches. And if we can't do that - then we simply don't deserve a place in the QF.

Our top wicket takers are all pacers. Spinners have been tripe in this series, even on a slow pitch thats spins (relatively), you cant rely on spinners. You have to field three pacers.

Filling the lineup with 8 batsmen is also crap idea, defensive and defeatist mindset, and with rubbish bowling line up, the England batsmen will pile up the runs.

Also you wanted Jetlagged Kayedge to play the day after he arrives in the country... thats madness.

This should be the line up

3/Riyad

I'm sure all rain washouts will not take a team to QF and unless a game is played, you can't assume if we were lucky to get a point or Aus was lucky; if that would hurt our NRR or Ausi :) so let's keep this game of IFs and buts.

We have a game and we have to win it, if we have to go to QF, if the match is washed out, bad luck/good luck of England, none will know what would happen if the game was played. Doesn't mean we will be unhappy getting into QF. Beating Eng and getting into QF surely will be a happier occasion.

There is a general arrogance in the English mentality in terms of shaping up for match with minnows. I realise that Bangladesh has not been a minnow in ODI format for at least seven or eight years, however, that mentality would not change. The typical belief in the team management would be that Bangkadeshi batsmen would not be able to handle extra pace and bounce. This has been a popular belief about batsnen from the subcontinent for many a generation now. England would focus much more on its batting lineup and try to bounce out the Bangladeshi batsmen.

I have not seen anything to suggest that unless the pitch was particularly friendly,, Bangladesh could bowl out England through sheer pace. As stated in my earlier post, controlled slow bowling, minimising the runs, excellent fielding to cut out running between wickets would lead to English batsmen frustrating themselves into sacrificing their wicket. Bell and Root, the latter being more mature than his years would be the sensible class batsmen. Get these two out and contain the heavybacklifting pinch hitters.

I am undecided about batting or bowling fast. I don't think a target above 300 would be possible to chase for Bangladeshi batsmen, so if batting second, England has to be limited to less than 300. If batting first, a total of 300 is a must, but do not worry if run rate is too slow for the first 35 overs. Tamim needs to have another good innings.

March 7, 2015, 05:38 PM
I think Sunny is a larger gamble than Taijul. He bowls flat and fast. At home, his deliveries will slow down significantly after pitching. So, it's harder to time him well, especially when he bowls fuller. But at Adelaide, timing him may not be so difficult and he may become the target of power hitters.

Taijul may be harder to pick up as he drifts the ball well.

Could as well be true, otherwise it's hard to explain their complacency with smaller achievements (sometimes as small as just getting the chance to play a couple of matches for the national side) & failure to set high ambitions in their own cricketing careers.

'The real test is now in front' - Masrafe [Bangla Audio Clip]
Staff Reporter
Q. Will Imrul Kayes play tomorrow against England?

Masrafe: He has a great chance of playing. Our opener has been injured and replaced, so we need him. He has just arrived yesterday (7 March) and has also practiced with the team. He had a good practice. If given the chance I am sure he will want to cash in on the opportunity and display his skills.



Q. It is a do or die match for England tomorrow, and on the other hand Bangladesh will still have one more chance against New Zealand. Do you think the extra pressure for England could be an advantage for Bangladesh?

Masrafe: It is a battle of nerves of course, but we saw what happened against Sri Lanka when we were too excited. England have definitely more experience o f playing under this kind of pressure, so you can’t tell what might happen. We are obviously excited to play tomorrow and will be giving it our best shot.



Q. England is not having a good time in terms of form and result in recent times. Has this been part of the team meetings ahead of the game?

Masrafe: It is natural to have such discussions regarding the current form of our opponents. I don’t know what the England team is thinking about the situation, but our World Cup campaign has been going on as expected till now. We have an opportunity to do well and progress to the next round, and we will try our best to do it, irrespective of our opponent.

Q. Considering the weakness of English batsmen playing quality spin bowling, is there a possibility to play an extra spinner in the match tomorrow?

Masrafe: There is, of course a possibility. There were opportunities in the previous games as well for spinners to play, and I personally felt on the field that t would have been good to have a spinner or two at times, but we have to think about the confidence of the batsmen, the proper balance in the side and also the opponents’ strengths and weaknesses. In accordance to these, we will come out with the best possible playing eleven to take England out of comfort.



Q. Will you want a winning combination comprising of 8 batsmen and 1 specialist spinner go on for a crunch match like the one tomorrow or would you plan otherwise?

Masrafe: If it were in Bangladesh, our plans would have been much easier and we might as well have kept the winning combination I terms of the playing eleven, but as I said previously, in these conditions we cannot think about winning combinations and it might not work out for us that way. We have to set teams so that we can trouble the opponents as much as possible and create opportunities to win from there.



Q. How much are the calculative aspects of Bangladesh’s progress being discussed amongst the team members?

Masrafe: Well, the calculation was simple from the beginning for us, beat Afghanistan and Scotland and beat one of the four stronger opponents and we get through to the next round. Till now we are right on course, and now are faced with the real challenge of beating the higher ranked teams. It is a mixture of both excitement and pressure for us. Everything depends on how we play on the day tomorrow. There are 16 crores of people back in the country and lots over here expecting us to do well, and I’m sure our boys are looking forward to get the pleasure of doing well and overcoming the tough hurdle.



Q. Both you and the coach Hathurusinghe have spend a lot of time observing the wicket yesterday. What are your observations regarding the wicket?

Masrafe: The wicket seems really flat and a batting wicket. Scores of 270-280 could be competitive. Our batsmen are within runs, Shakib and Mushfiq had been scoring regularly, Tamim has played well in the last match. Our bowlers had made a few errors here and there but if they can get back to rhythm it is possible for us to give a tough time to our opponents.

We have no hope :facepalm:. If they go with the mindset of 270-280, then we will score 240 and have a respectable loss. Tamim will play as many dots as possible and raise his finger after scoring a 70 ball 50.

If this pitch is flat like the other pitches in Australia, our target should be no less than 330.

WarWolf
March 8, 2015, 07:23 AM
Targeting 270-280 is realistic for our batsmen. Whenever we try to to target higher, we crash under pressure. This is the norm so far in our cricket.

If they can have a good start targeting 280 and can keep wickets in hands, 330 is also possible.

MHRAM
March 8, 2015, 07:44 AM
Hold on folks, targetting 330 will put un-necessary pressureo n our bats. We need to play the match session by session. Bat first, see out the new ball, press the accelerator, rotate the strike, found the odd boundary and go boom boom in the final overs. Ofcourse, batsman shouldn't be too complacent with whatever score they have.

simon
March 8, 2015, 08:11 AM
sometimes players don't say it all to the press, and it's not easy to say we will score 300 against Eng but I believe they know 270-280 is not safe unless it's a good bowling wicket.

What else would you expect him to say? "We will score 350", (and make a new batting record) against quality pace bowling attack from a team like England and make sure all our batsman crumble in pressure and we end up with 180? 270-280 is a realistic target against a team like England.

prtikul
March 8, 2015, 10:22 AM
I have a feeling that Moeen bhai & Root will be key batsmen from England tomorrow, Bhai likes attacks similar to Srilanka & India in LOIs. (Get him early with short stuff) I hope you don't loose many wickets against him while trying to slog after initial pressure from Anderson & Broad like we do. Need to have off day from Finn as well.

Someone need to step up & play knock like 80 odd runs in 60 balls to change momentum in middle or lower middle order. If you have to bat first, initial target should be 280 rather than trying to go for 330 from the start & then falling way short of that. You may score above 300 if played with strategy of maintaining run rate of 5 to 5.5 in first 30 overs & loosing only 2 or 3 wickets.

Chasing is going to be tricky in Australia under light. In that case anything can happen either huge loss or very close finish if target is below 320.

We've won all our games in the 'Ovals' so far in this WC and I hope just like Manuka Oval and Saxton Oval, Adelaide Oval won't disappoint us either.

You may not get turn from the pitch, but air over there help drifting the ball, as demonstrated by both Shakib and Vettori.

Taijul is pretty good at deceiving batsmen with flight, I think he would have done well here.

CI Match Preview (http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-cricket-world-cup-2015/content/story/845927.html)

This drop-in pitch was described as "full of runs" by Peter Moores. But, while there is an unusually short boundary towards the west side of the ground - just 54 metres - there has only been one total in excess of 300 here in ODIs here since January 2005. That came when India played Pakistan here at the start of this tournament. Mortaza reasoned that a score of 270-280 should be considered "really good" and, while there is unlikely to be any help in the surface for bowlers of any description, the drop-in pitches here have tended to lack a bit of pace. There are showers forecast for Monday morning - a nightmare for England as a washout would eliminate them - though the forecast for the afternoon is fine and mild.

As for the match, yes I'm excited but not having a good feeling, before playing us Srilanka was looking very poor, lost badly to NZ and won badly to Afg, but dominant against us.
But if we can create pressure they will be easier to cook.

Same batting line up and same batting order. If they want to bring in a batsman, it ought to be Mominul at no. 3. Mominul can do a couple of overs as well. Being so short, it will be hard for the English to get under his deliveries. But really we need another bowler. That extra batsman is useless, at least in a must win game.

The problem is that Soumy has not really scored. If he is opening, we need him to score ball-a-run half century.

I like Imrul, I wish that he remains the part of the team. But he is not ready.

3. Riad
4. Mushy
5. Sakib
6. Nasir
7. Sabbir
8. Mash
9. Taijul
10. Sunny
11. Taskin


A lot of people saying that we should play with 3 seamers. Some bringing the fact that 30 out of 34 english wicket in WC 2015 captured by pacers. But you have to admit that our pacers are nor up to the mark yet and I want to play according to our strength which is spin.
This bowling line up gives the skipper a lot of options. We have 2 front line pacers- Mash and Taskin. Mash with his Controlled line length and small swing can become very handy at the early stage of the innings. I don’t want him to Bowl in power play and death overs. He is pretty bad in death overs.
Taskin better be sensible. He showed that he can be sensible at at the match against scots.
So, then we have 2 pacers, 3 Quality SLA, 2 offie, 1 leggie, 1 medium pacer (s sarkar ). Looks very good on Paper.
If England bat first, lets start with Mash and Riad (yes, u heard it right ). Riad can be handy against Moeen. Mash Should bowl a 5 overs spell. Taijul, Sakib, Sunny and Taskin to operate in the middle overs along with part timers ( if needed ). My death bowlers are Sakib, Sunny and Taskin. Sunny got a calm head over his shoulder, maintains a decent line & length. He can become hard to get away in the death overs.
Not much to talk about batting. Lets be brave. Negotiate Anderson and attack others. This batting line up can beat anyone if fulfill their potential.
I kept out Imrul because he only joined with the team 3/4 days earlier. I don’t want to take chance with him on this crunch team.
Lastly, I hope that whatever the team be, we beat England and make it to the QF.

You are totally forgetting about Mash. Against Scotland, he was limping. That might happen again vs england. But the fact is, there are no better new-ball opening bowlers besides Mash. Even half-fit Mash is better than rest, and we definitely need an extra pacer to cover up for Mash.

March 8, 2015, 03:21 PM
@Eshen they definately can, if the wicket is good for spinners. Most of the wickets have been batting paradise. Hence the longer our batting line-up the more freedom our batmen will have to play aggressively without worrying and becoming ineffective..e.g. playing too many dot balls to survive. However, if the wicket will help spinners, definately go with Taijul or sunny.

That's like saying, I am happy to be your second apple than your boyfriend. Jei team er fanra brishti porar jonno nachanachi kore, shei team k support korai lojja

Chah!
In the last 15+ years we've had too many bad breaks, about time some of those breaks started going our way. As they say in these world events sometimes it's better to be lucky than just good. The perfect example is Pakistan in 92 world cup. They were playing poorly. They got to the point where there was no way they were going to make the knock out rounds and they needed at least 1 point to stay alive. In their match against England they batted first and got bundled out for 70 or 80 and were on the verge of defeat. The second half got washed out, they got their 1 point, started winning and the rest is history.

If we lose today and get knocked out next week nothing will change in our cricketing history. If we're good enough to beat a G8, no reason why we can't do that in the knockout round. I'd rather somehow get to the next round first, win the quarters and beyond and seal a spot in the history books.

Mash, Taskin Rubel/Shafiul - 3 Pacer
Shakib, Riyad, Tajul - 3 Spinner
Sabbir, Nasir - 2 Part Timer

8 bowling option with reasonable variety, should be good enough Attack. If we reduce a pacer, we will go with a handicap in pace, which can disturb the entire performance. If you need a pacer in the middle overs or during PP, you don't have one. That's not acceptable.

Mash, Tajul, Rubel/Shafiul & Taskin - except these four, we have 7 proper batsman. Should be enough.

Advantage Taijul if it turns, advantage Sunny if it skids. On the other hand, we are screwed if England bowl first and Broad-Anderson finally get the ball to swing on the moist wicket.

From Samakal-

[বাংলা]স্পিন নিয়ে ইংলিশদের যে প্রচণ্ড অরুচি, তা জানা আছে মাশরাফির। তাই আজকের একাদশে সাকিবের সঙ্গে একজন বাড়তি স্পিনার নেওয়ার যুক্তি তুলেছেন টিম মিটিংয়ে। এর আগের বিশ্বকাপে চট্টগ্রামে স্পিন ঘায়েলেই কুপোকাত হয়েছিল ইংল্যান্ড। অ্যাডিলেডের পিচ যদিও গুঁড়া মাটিতে ভরা নয়, এখানে ঘাসের ডগাও উঁকি মারে পিচে; কিন্তু তার পরও ৩০০ রানই এ মাঠের একমাত্র মানদণ্ড। পাকিস্তানকে ৩০০ রান তুলেই বধ করেছিল ভারত। সেদিন বিরাট কোহলি যে ভূমিকা রেখেছিলেন, আজ ওভালে সে ভূমিকা দেওয়া হয়েছে মুশফিকুর রহিমকে। ব্যাটিং অর্ডারে আজ এগিয়ে আনা হতে পারে তাকে। প্ল্যান 'এ', 'বি', 'সি' তিনটিই তৈরি করে রাখা হয়েছে। প্রথমে ব্যাট করতে হলে কী করতে হবে?

শুরুতে উইকেট পড়লে কী করতে হবে? কোচ হাথুরুসিংহের ল্যাপটপে ফোল্ডার করে সব তৈরি করে রাখা। দলের ব্যাটিং গভীরতায় কোনোমতেই হাত দিতে চাইছেন না কোচ। আট ব্যাটসম্যানকেই খেলাতে চাইছেন তিনি। সুবর্ণ সুযোগের এই ম্যাচের ছক কষতে ঢাকা থেকে উড়ে এসেছেন প্রধান নির্বাচক ফারুক আহমেদও। কোচ, অধিনায়ক, নির্বাচক- তিন মাথা এক করে অ্যাডিলেডের কন্টিনেন্টাল হোটেলে যে বৈঠক হয়েছে, সেখানেই নিশ্চিত করা হয়েছে ওপেনিংয়ে ইমরুল কায়েসকে খেলানোর। ইংল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে ইমরুলের রেকর্ড যথেষ্ট ভালো। গতবার চট্টগ্রামে যে ম্যাচটিতে ইংল্যান্ড হেরেছিল, সেখানে ইমরুল করেছিলেন ৬০ রান। গতকাল তাকে নিয়েও কোচ অনেকক্ষণ নেটে ছিলেন।

ইংল্যান্ডকে নিয়ে যথেষ্ট পড়ালেখাও করানো হয়েছে ছেলেদের। জো রুট বিশ্বকাপের কত ম্যাচে কত রান করেছেন, জেমস টেলর তিন নম্বর ব্যাটিংয়ে কেমন করেছেন, মরগান নিচে নেমে কতটা সময় খেলেছেন, অ্যান্ডারসন আর ব্রড কোন লাইনে বেশি বল ফেলছেন_ সবকিছু খুঁটিয়ে বিশ্লেষণ করেছেন মাশরাফি। ঠিক করেছেন তাদের দুর্বলতাগুলো চিহ্নিত করে সেখানে আঘাত করার। স্কটিশদের বিপক্ষে তিনশ'র বেশি রান তাড়া করার যে আত্মবিশ্বাস, তা কিছুতেই হাতছাড়া করতে চান না মাশরাফি। বোলারদের বলে দেওয়া হয়েছে, কোনো স্পেলে উপর্যুপরি বাউন্ডারি এলেও যাতে লাইন-লেন্থ ঠিক রাখা হয়। ব্যাটসম্যানরাও যাতে ঘাবড়ে না গিয়ে ব্যাট করেন, তারও নিশ্চয়তা দেওয়া হয়েছে। তবে হাইভোল্টেজ এই ম্যাচে সবচেয়ে বেশি গুরুত্ব দেওয়া হচ্ছে ফিল্ডিংয়ের ওপর। এদিন ওভালের চারদিকে ফিল্ডার ছড়িয়ে উঁচুতে ওঠা ক্যাচ অনুশীলন করানো হয়েছে।[/বাংলা]

If there is going to be moisture on the wicket, we should bowl first (if we win the toss). We should go with three pacers and see if they can get some early swing. If they can't get swing, bring in Sunny, see if he can get the ball to skid.

I guess that's why they're going with Sunny and not Taijul, who gives the ball more air.

2011 World Cup. Bangladesh were all out for 58 against WI. In the next game they were under pressure and were able to beat England. In the Asian Cup (couple of years back), BD was under pressure against SL (win will take BD to final). BD was able to beat SL under pressure.

After rain not understanding what bd should do, bat or bowl? Must game win, batting first would be the best choice..but I like to see bd win the toss.....and decide whatever situation ask for....
