Bismillah.

This match was destined to be a dead rubber...except that now it won't be our last of the tourney. No pressure...just go out and play. Play to win, but no pressure.

And Mash out, Shafiul in. Arafat out, Nasir in (yes, I'm keeping Kayes).

March 12, 2015, 06:54 AM
We need to drop imrul, put Sarkar uptop, bring in Nasir in the Middle, and maybe rest Mortaza. We need to just survive the new ball, even if we go at 3/4 an over, dont think theyre batting line up is strong, just McCullum on good form, even he's not that good, Williamson will be key for them, but he might not be fully fit. I reckon if we can get 270+ on the board and get McCullum out early, and restrict Williamson - we are in with a chance


For both these teams a place in the quarter-finals is safe - New Zealand courtesy of a serene run through the tournament and Bangladesh after their seismic victory over England in Adelaide. Now there is a final chance for fine-tuning before the knockouts. While New Zealand are assured of topping the group, a win for Bangladesh will push them past Sri Lanka, meaning they will avoid facing defending champions India in the quarter-final.

The team should not be complacent at all. They must go for win and if can win will definitely make our ground solid in 50 overs arena; no matter if we will win the QF or not....

I really see this match as the real testament for the team to compel the cricket world (who still don’t believe or do hesitate) to finally admit that BD has reached a level where it should no longer be considered as “slightly better than associates”, it is now at the same level of top 8 nations, at least in 50 overs competition.

Logically, I don’t see any reason of not winning the match against NZ, after all it should be taken as a prestige contest by our team. I still believe that if BD would have played against Australia, and if we would even lose, that match would definitely give us valuable additional match experience to better deal Sri Lanka; we could have beaten Sri Lanka.

Anyway, I am looking forward to this match and wish that BD shall deploy all its efforts to win.

However Kiwis will be favouriates to win as its their own turf. They would want to get REBHENJE on us for the recent pedani we have them aka BANGLAWASH. We dont have our skipper.

I think give Taijul a chance as I didnt like the way Sunny bowled. Risky to bring in Shaiful as he is a calf and will bleed runs. I hate to say this but bring on Nasir in as he is the only other option

Also tamim has something to offer becasue of his catch miss, and rubel has offer to some 150k pace.....he will be pop up for this game. Bangladesh keep dancing.

3- Number of times McCullum has been dismissed by Rubel Hossain in just ten deliveries in ODIs. Shafiul Islam - Bangladesh's replacement for Al Amin Hossain - has also dismissed McCullum three times, in 34 balls. McCullum's record against Bangladesh hasn't been good: he averages 20.18 against them in 17 innings and has scored 323 runs including two fifties, the lowest he averages against any team from more than two innings. McCullum's last five ODI innings against Bangladesh have had two ducks and he has eight single-digit scores in his 17 innings against them.

Alvi
March 12, 2015, 01:10 PM
The key will be to play out first 10 overs of Southee/Boult while losing 1 wkt max (probably Tamim will go). We have to milk singles of Vettori's spell and take our chances against the rest. I think we can defend a total of 260+ if Kalam Bhai is restricted early, perhaps with some spin bowling. Batting first will be key though, NZ may well cross 300 if they are allowed to bat first.

According to Papon, coaches were totally shocked to see Shafiul's condition after his arrival in Australia, a stark contrast to where he was in Zim series. Currently they think he's not fit enough to play, bowling at a lot lower speed than usual and he's really wayward with line/length. So, a very slim chance of him replacing Mash tomorrow, Nasir would most likely be the replacement.

And no one cared to check on that before giving him the plane ticket?

Abul Hasan would have been better. Pace, and these wickets would have been good learning curve for the youngster. Cause the truth is Abul is one of the future, need to groom/nurture him. the feeling of playing in WC gives one great inspiration for the future especially if its a youngster and his 1st WC.

That tells you about work ethics of our players. No willingness to stay fit and work on skills. :facepalm:

Looking forward to this game.

I think it will be a good match. InshAllah BD win.

I'd go with this line up:

Tamim
Sarkar
Mahmudullah
Mushy
Shakib (Captain)
Shabbir
Nasir
Rubel
Taijul
Arafat
Taskin

Yes two spinners, plus the star Shaikib. Mash needs a restm, this match isnt must win. We need to make sure Mash is fresher, to go in the QF.

Let's see which of the other SLA does what. then we can pick who is to play in the QF? or maybe not, and bring another batsmen in.

March 12, 2015, 03:10 PM
This NZ team is vastly improved than the team that toured BD. On top of that this is their turf. If we fire on all cylinders, we can make it a close game, but their form and confidence will overpower all our efforts.

My pessimism has brought great luck to the team. So, there you go.

Mas_UK25
March 12, 2015, 03:10 PM
If thats correct about Shafiul then I can only say. what a selfish player. should said ''I dont feel fit'' why waste a spot! BCB should have checked too. Shaiful has disappointed me, if what people are saying is true.

+ Tells you about our FC comps and how seriously teams takes it. He was playing DPL and NCL, yet, he couldn't manage to stay fit...Reason (s):

-Their is no conditioning camp or fitness camp prior to start a domestic leagues
-fixtures for domestic comps usually released 2/3 days before the starting date..no time to prepare physically especially when you're on a biyrani diet for 15 days.
-pace bowlers only bowls 5/6 overs per day in ncl

There are endless list but these are the main few why our phast bowlers lose their fitness way too easily.


Another prime example is Robiul. Every time I see him, I see either he put on 5 kgs or injured warming up on the bench.

Abul just came back from injury. Missed 4/5 round of NCL fixtures

Don't be so disheartened hearing Papon. Papon is another clown, sometimes he even doesn't know what he says about whom. How much value you give yo his words?? :)

Listend to the Coach in pre Match media briefing. He had some excellent things to say about the team.

Specially I was taken abak when he said, "If you have seen our today's practice session, you know how motivated they are to play. Playing a World Cup and for the country is good enough a motivation for them to work so hard, they don't seem to be tired at all, even working so hard" I haven't heard such words from a coach of our national team. Instead I have only heard that the players aren't working hard...this he said when he was asked, "since QF is confirmed for the team, how much motivated they are to win."

So don't react much unless you see Shafiul playing and make your own judgement. Papon never had anything to say about Tamim's bhuri, why Shafiul? You never know which selector or administrator he is shooting at, he is a political guy. Aparently Shafiul didn't look unfit like his words make him to be...so, I won't trust Papon without seeing myself.

As per Kaler Kantha, this will be the team -

Tamim
Imrul
Soumya
Riyad
Mushfiq
Shakib
Sabbir
Nasir
Taijul (Shafiul if the pitch somehow turns out to be pacer friendly before toss)
Rubel
Taskin

Sunny out since it's easier to hit him on small grounds.

I say we should bowl first, we should go with Three pacers(Shafiul, Rubel, Taskin) + Sunny +Shakib. I am very afraid that the weakest link is Taskin whom the opponents will target for runs, but that should be to his advantage if he can pick up crucial wickets. I still remember how Taskin got really nervous in the England match at the death. bechara, a very young kid still. Kudos to Management if they decide to rest Mortaza(he really needs it) also it should be very interesting to see Bangladesh on field strategy under Shakib(he has a different personality now i believe, a more matured one i suppose compared to before i would hope)

Eshen

^^Don't think Hathuru will go any less than 8 batsmen in this match. So he will either go with three pacers, or two pacer+one specialist spinner.
