Bring it on boys! We have nothing to lose but let's win the toss and Chose to field.

Kholi average 76 while chasing in T20 so we have no chance especially without Musta if we bat first

We have to be good at all three departments to win this. Won't be easy but we should be pumped up after beating Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Let's do this boys!

My XI

Tamim Iqbal
Soumya Sarkar
Sabbir Rahman
Mushfiqur Rahim
Mahmudullah Riyad
Shakib Al Hasan
Nasir Hossain
Mashrafe Mortaza
Abu Haider Rony
Taskin Ahmed
Al-Amin Hossain

Promote Riyad up the order. Arafat Sunny will be ineffective against India so I would pick Rony ahead of him. Nasir Hossain comes in because Mithun and Nurul have done jackshit this tournament and Nasir bowled well in the ODIs against India.

There are plenty of Bangladesh fans who would agree that India are favorites. Don't believe the crap they write about Bangladesh fans on the web, that makes us seem like the worst fans in the world. Usually done by haters of BD. Welcome to the forums

Welcome to BC. Kalpurush bhai is 100% right in his assessment about India’s superiority in skills ahead of the game. But remember, according to world best commentators, we are the most loyal fan in cricket world. We need to look at our chances and BD team will not handover anything to you without a fight.

IndYeah
March 2, 2016, 03:05 PM
Thanks. So what do loyal fans think the pitch will look like for this game? Or rather, what would Bangladesh want it to be like? What kind of pitch would favor the home team?

Personally, I feel a batting track is the best shot, if you give Indian bowlers any pitch assistance, then they will be too effective for you to out-match the Indian batting. But the flat track is risky too, since the batting might just blast away. The wonder-kid being injured is a tough blow, cuz he's an awkward bowler to go after.

Let's hope the umpires get their act together - been consistently bad this tournament.

Jadukor
March 2, 2016, 06:55 PM
I would like the pitch to be like the one vs Pakistan game. There was a bit in it for bowlers to survive but not a lot. We need pace and bounce and go with 4 pace option. Rony being the surprise for India.

Whatever the pitch is its not going to be a catwalk for India like the first game. in 2012 Asia cup final Pak were playing superb cricket throughout the tournament, Still the final was so close. We are one extremely momentum based team, With momentum in our side and the roaring crowd support it'll be a interesting final. Chances of India wining is 80% in my view but out of the 40 overs 38-39 overs will be 50-50

Request to all the fans, let's not put any pressure on the team instead, let's ask the team to express themselves. If they express themselves and go into the match we gotta show our talents instead of oh we gotta win this, it becomes a lot easier for them. So no expectation but a sense of excitement, and positive energy, the players will feed off this.

Really? Where do you usually e-hang out? On ICF?

Because when it comes to forums and CricInfo, Bangladeshi fans tend to be far better posters compared to Indian fans.

On FB, it's best to avoid both sets of mental imps, but you have us beat there too.

Lately, there hasn't been a lot of chances of scoring own goals given our performances in 2015.

Agreed.

The pitch probably should be made to assist the quicks.

We stop picking up wickets after picking up 3-4 early wickets. That has to change in this game. Have to keep the pressure up.

While batting, have to be patient till the ball's shine comes off. It gets easier to bat afterwards. A lot of early wickets fell on these wickets in pretty much every game of the tournament. We seem to be in a hurry and play high-risk shots way too early in the game. In terms of shot selection and how to pace a T20 innings, our batting is still a work in progress. Sabbir and Tamim are in form. One of Mushy and Shakib needs to play well in the middle order.

I like that team. What sunny can do, Nasir can do too+ a lot more with the bat and as a fielder.

I agree with your analysis of where we can improve too. I'd like to add, we need to stop playin these sweeps, scoops etc. play more orthadox cricket shots. Most of the times they don't come out right as was evident by mushy and shakibs dismissals. Such a high risk shot. What frustrates me especially with mushy he's good enough to play orthodox shots, and get boundaries that way. Sarkar tried it a few times too.

March 2, 2016, 08:19 PM
Maybe something slow and low, its what helped us win against them last year. Though we don't have Mustafizur, we can try Rony because it seems every pacer we debut against India stars off with a bang.

March 2, 2016, 09:10 PM
Yah Rony the yorker specialist should be in. Can really swing the game in our favour, Indians have never played him and if it is swinging he can be effective. The whole team should be aggressive and be given the license to express themselves, specially the openers and Shabbir. We got Shakib and Mushfiqur to steady Bangladesh but the openers need to dominate the Indian bowlers so Tamim, Shoumya and Shabbir should be given the license. We got a good chance but let's not put pressure on the team and instead ask them to play freely, and show their talent now.

Jadukor
March 2, 2016, 09:11 PM
My wishlist:
1. Target 160
2. Play sensibly in the first 3 overs and dont give free wickets.
3. Cut down on premedidated shots, i am looking at you shakib and mushy
4. Play ashwin out and attack the rest. Use Mithun as a pinch hitter once Shabbir falls.
5. Dont drop Rohit. Dont keep soumia at slip.
6. Bring Rony in for Sunny
7. Use ryad and free up some overs

Don't want to hype anything up (I don't anyway) but you will see lot's of our opposition fan's hyping up. A mean, they (ind) is fav. But not that BD can't beat them (we not only beat them last year, absolutely thumped them), so there's no question of that, is there?

Lets remember Yuvi and Raina in the middle order so Sunny in the middle overs would just play into their hands. Nasir for Mithun would improve our batting and bowling as long as Mash comes in before Nas in the batting order.

March 3, 2016, 12:46 AM
If we go by the essential hypothesis of grassy pitch as introduced by the captain of mighty Indian team, he and the MVP's like Yuvraj, Kohli, Jadeja, Rohit etc. should not play in the final. According to him and BCCI team management there is no point playing in such pitches as this will have little or no effect to the much needed match practice for World Cup.

Therefore, it can be concluded that, abiding the question raised by Dhoni, Indian team management will rather rest those players and try their bench strength with a plan to prepare them for other series that will be played in a seaming condition such as Champion's Trophy.

The UAE match today can be the starting point for this secondary team....:D

We will win this. Here is why:
While India is the stronger side, their mind in on lifting the WC trophy not Asia Cup. We are the hungrier side and we will fight as hard as we possibily can with the crowd behind us.

India's batting is awesome but so is our bowling. If there is pace and bounce we got the bowlers to keep their big hitters under control. In the first game our batting didnt fire...but now Soumia is back, Tamim is back, Mushy and Shakib yet to fire and these guys are bound to put in that match winning performance. Our batting should be able to do heavy damage against Indian pace attack this time.

We enter the final with momentum and pressure lifted. We beat India comprehensively at home in 50 over cricket and now we enter the final overcoming Amir and co in a tight contest. We know we are ranked below Afghanistan and yet here we are, in the final. We play the same brand of fearless cricket India plays but this is our turf.

We have unlocked the secret to winning in t 20 and there is no stopping us now.

What do the well-informed fans here think about the pitch? What will it look like? I highly doubt it will be a batting track like it was against Bakistan.

Batting pitch is absolutely na-na. Same with pitches with grass. The pitch will be brown-slow pitch, where ball comes to bat late. Top order Indian batsman are dependent on timing, so they will falter. Indian batsman will mis-calculate the par score, if they bat first. Slower track will not help spinners as batsman gets a lot of time to see the turn. But Bangladesh will miss Mustafiz on this. Plus, Bumrah and Pandya are also primarily variation bowlers - they could do something, unlike Umesh and Aaron. Yuvraj has a tendency to get stuck in slow pitches.

To win, Bangladesh needs to chase. Dew will make things easier later but early ball won't come to bat. Get Yuvraj stuck and don't let Rohit stay for long. Attack Nehra and watch out Aswin.

India have won a lot of trophies the last several years. They have done it with favorable pitches, but also with focus and professionalism. They will know a setback will impact WT20 preparation.

Hw about the champions trophy India shouldn't play so they can warm up for the next World Cup right.
I am just acknowledging the posters including moderators who says BD is going to win. When it is 99% game for BD what's the use in India concentrating and getting injured in the process.

To maximise the chances in WC T20 they need to play carefully and not mind about the result, is what I had said. Some posters are quick to pass good/bad judgement but it makes them very insecure and impatient.

Seen plenty of Kohli fans, even in Pakistan. But a fan of his socks? that's a new one. I know Bangla fans are real passionate about cricket, and I love that. But this is a bit kooky.

Yeah pretty weird but then we need to be thankful that he stopped at socks.

Bhuvi was swinging it in the air and he does that on brown tops as well. He looks fresh and ready. Jadeja is still more likely to play, but Kumar has given himself a good shot here.

If Soumya held on to Rohit in the 1st match, Bd would have won that.

India is so vulnerable, all we have to do is take our chances and the game shall be ours. This Indian team cannot thump anyone without getting a bit lucky.

March 3, 2016, 10:18 AM
Batting pitch is absolutely na-na. Same with pitches with grass. The pitch will be brown-slow pitch, where ball comes to bat late. Top order Indian batsman are dependent on timing, so they will falter. Indian batsman will mis-calculate the par score, if they bat first. Slower track will not help spinners as batsman gets a lot of time to see the turn. But Bangladesh will miss Mustafiz on this. Plus, Bumrah and Pandya are also primarily variation bowlers - they could do something, unlike Umesh and Aaron. Yuvraj has a tendency to get stuck in slow pitches.

To win, Bangladesh needs to chase. Dew will make things easier later but early ball won't come to bat. Get Yuvraj stuck and don't let Rohit stay for long. Attack Nehra and watch out Aswin.

Gamini Silva doesn't always prepare the right pitch for us. Lets hope he will this time. He has done a good job in this tournament.

All this talk of pitch and umpires is lame. Pitch is the same pitch both teams have to play on. India has the pace resources to take advantage of a green top, the batting resources to smash it in a shirt front and the experience to get a 140-150 score if it's a traditional slow-low-BD-track. Likewise BD has the pure pace and accuracy for the first, enough firepower to put up a par score or chase a par score with the crowd supported fielding/bowling effort to keep things manageable and the SLAs for the last option. Having said that, if Gamini chooses a pitch that "supposedly" helps BD, fans of the superpower shouldn't get their knickers in a bunch. You are the bigger side. Act like it.

Umpiring. The umpiring has been atrocious throughout the tournament - regardless of nationality of umpires involved. The Michael Jordan effect is also real (i.e. the bigger team and bigger superstar get the benefit of marginal calls). So we should all expect that unless dumb incompetence or circumstances intervene, India will get the benefit of 50/50 decisions. We BD fans are used to this and Indian fans should get used to our complaining about it. That's all we have. You can enjoy the actual game day advantage.

As for many (not all) BD fans thinking we will win, seriously what else would one expect. When India tours Australia, statistically most of Indian fans should expect to get their boys in blue to get clobbered. But does that mean MANY Indian fans go around thinking "we will lose"? No. As fans (short for fanatics), we _ARE_ supposed to root for our team as you will for yours.

Nothing wrong with pitch that helps BD, its what SL used to do all the time and still does. Understandable, as long as you are honest about it.

But don't think pitch will help that much, because even one-eyed fanboys have to admit, India have the skills to adapt to the variety of conditions presented. Bangla boys will have to put up their best performance, and mistake-free. Credit to the team that they have moved up a level - the days where Bangla was an automatic win are in the past. I think they will still need some serious luck to beat big blue, but good to see.

Bangla have some up-and-coming quality players - Soumya, Sabbir and Mahmudullah look the part, and seem to have the required self-belief in addition to the pre-requisite skills.

On the whole fan front, There is a difference between backing your team, being optimistic etc and going overboard with hype. Over-hyping actually backfires and makes you look silly and insecure. I think earlier, Bangla fans were starved of success and jumped at the slightest opportunity to over-hype. Now its time to evolve as fans, just like their team has done a good job of. Mind you - this is not everyone, just some of the over-excitable ones. Just my 2 cents, No need to get defensive.

The evidence most cited is BD fans making outrageous claims on the comments section of Cricinfo - which is a neutral website.

If a BD fans says 'we will beat you' - they call us "arrogant and cocky" -- but if they say "we thrash you" - it becomes ok to say? And they are are not 'arrogant' or cocky!
When BD fans celebrate they mock us saying as if we won the WC, even thaf little weird eyes Bhogle mentioned few timea commie box (although he said in sweetly not taking micky but it shows the mentality of such kinds) if celebrating a win in joyfulness is wrong then whats the point playing the sport? I support Liverpool, last winter Liverpool v Middlesborough League cup went down penalties and Liverpool won the epic (i think it was) 12-14 or something and the whole team run wild to celebrate. In football they do it bery often even against a lowe league teams. But in cricket when you have just beaten one of you old enemies the mock your celebration

If a BD fans says 'we will beat you' - they call us "arrogant and cocky" -- but if they say "we thrash you" - it becomes ok to say? And they are are not 'arrogant' or cocky!
When BD fans celebrate they mock us saying as if we won the WC, even thaf little weird eyes Bhogle mentioned few timea commie box (although he said in sweetly not taking micky but it shows the mentality of such kinds) if celebrating a win in joyfulness is wrong then whats the point playing the sport? I support Liverpool, last winter Liverpool v Middlesborough League cup went down penalties and Liverpool won the epic (i think it was) 12-14 or something and the whole team run wild to celebrate. In football they do it bery often even against a lowe league teams. But in cricket when you have just beaten one of you old enemies the mock your celebration

Seen these things on various places there is so many strange weirdos say strange weird things about BD and BD FANS.
When we are just mostly optimistic and now we genuinely feel
Have a good side--whats wrong being happy and believing? I guess in the 3rd world there's some folks havient civilised yet certain areas, and still stuck in oldage.

If they start banning so called TROLLS you will be the first one :up:

Its just amazing how my posts are able to get to your head so quick :applause::applause:

Say it to me WE WILL BEAT YOU did you ever do it ? How did i react ? All you do is cry cry and cry to Mods when you are the one who Trolls here

I already proved it in other thread how you just can't take even a bit of banter but thinks its ok to Talk a lot ( most of the time which doesn't even make any sense ) and expect people not to reply back..

Seen this in many places ? That pretty much says it all.. If you were able to give it then maybe you should be able to take it as well :up:

I think this thread is getting unnecessary de-railed off the cricket - let's bring it back.

Which Indian batsman is viewed as the key wicket other than Kohli and Rohit? Those 2 are obvious.

From the Bangla side, from what I have seen, Sarkar looks the best bat but he is still learning and I feel he is likely to get himself out. Will be dangerous if he doesn't, but I feel he will. Have not seen enough of this Sabbir guy, but Mahmudullah is batting too low down the order I think for you guys. So Sabbir would be the key wicket, IMO.

Thank you. I think Sarkar, Shabbir and Riyad 2.0 are great additions to the team, but our two batting core, Mushfiq and Shakib are somewhat in a slump. I believe the stats back me up as well in that our team does well when they do really well. Part of the reason for our success in 2015 was Mushfiq's great batting form. I believe he was averaging 50s at one point. I might have to look up statguru at cricinfo.

Raina and Dhoni is there too...

For Tigers, Mushfiq and Shakib has to perform along with Tamim, Sarker, Shabbir and Mullah if we are to win the match ... a total team effort, i.e., bowling, fielding and batting - everyone has to be on top of their game to beat the mighty India.

Shakib seems to be seriously underachieving these days. With his experience, you would think he would be anchoring that middle-order but somehow he finds ways to fail at key times.

If I were a Bangla fan, I would be most concerned about Raina - especially since the pitch is likely to be a "home-track" ;) He is capable of generating power on his shots regardless and can really hurt you. Rohit likes the ball coming on to the bat, and Kohli can anchor. Yuvi's wicket can be bought for a few runs with spin, but if Raina sticks around for 6-7 overs, he will take the game away. Bangla think tank should be spending the next few days worrying about Suresh!

I think it's part of a learning process for him even at this stage of his career. There was an article about Kohli that I read on our English daily(The daily Star) about how Kohli had reinvented his game at T20 just by focusing on his strength, which was timing and technique. It made him a greater player. I think Shakib needs to realize that as well.

Shakib isn't the player that can muscle his way through. He needs to focus on his strength, which is quick rotation, cut shot, pierce the cover and Good footwork against spin. There is a reason why Shakib averages more in Test than on any format. The sooner he realizes this, the sooner we will have our old Shakib back. I recently saw from another member, that he is working on his techniques with his old mentor Salahuddin. I really hope that is true.

Shakib has underachieved in all the ICC tournaments, has poor averages. (Not pressure type player)

In big tournaments, Mahmudallah and Mashrafe become deadly warriors!

Hopefully Mushfiqur, Tamim and Shakib don't disappoint in upcoming T20 World Cup.

and what about saying nonsense that never happened ?

like a dog thinks everyone else is a dog, only the perennial racists like aussies would think everyone else is one too.

anyone who knows colloquial hindi knows pretty well what harbhajan said, and it is neither english nor anything related to monkeys. of course, it was mcgrath who called jayasuriya a black monkey. racists that they are they quickly jumped on harbhajan to assuage their own guilt.

the allegation that harbhajan called symonds a racist comment is the silliest and most ridiculous allegation of all. even if an Indian wanted to racially abuse someone monkey would certainly not a word he will ever think up.
that's like alleging a white american abused someone by calling him a bangal !

That's pretty weak bowling line up if you ask me honestly. Only Nehra is the real concern. Bhuvi won't play. Bumrah and Hardik will be taken to the cleaners. Ashwin will be ineffective.
The thing is they hunt as a pack, underestimate them and they will hurt you where it hurts most, like they say "don't turn ur back on the wolf pack".

and what about saying nonsense that never happened ?

like a dog thinks everyone else is a dog, only the perennial racists like aussies would think everyone else is one too.

anyone who knows colloquial hindi knows pretty well what harbhajan said, and it is neither english nor anything related to monkeys. of course, it was mcgrath who called jayasuriya a black monkey. racists that they are they quickly jumped on harbhajan to assuage their own guilt.

the allegation that harbhajan called symonds a racist comment is the silliest and most ridiculous allegation of all. even if an Indian wanted to racially abuse someone monkey would certainly not a word he will ever think up.
that's like alleging a white american abused someone by calling him a bangal !
symonds may not hold up to aussie standards of whiteness but to bhajji, symonds is as white as any of the aussies.
Neel I believe this is a reference to the Indian spectators who did it. We all know that Bhajji's defense is that he was merely paying respect to Simmond's mother :)

Non of us are insecured, infact we have always wished better for Bangladesh cricket, but it's the attitude of some of the fans that needs to be answered, like they say we are friends of friends and in your face if you show arrogance,off course there is no harm in a bit of banter, but lol worthy attitude ain't gonna take you anywhere if u ask me.

He can't do worse than Sunny..he also gets some movement in the air which has caused major problems this tourney Taskin and Al Amin bowl short of a good length but Rony pitches it up.

So Haider is guaranteed 3> wickets? You can downplay Sunny all you want but he got 2 very crucial wickets in the last game.

Looking at all this banter is like watching two male pea-cocks exhibiting and exposing themselves in front of a proud pea-hen. It looks a train-wreck. This version have no gallantry. It's utterly despicable. And yet the ends is to mate with the hen..just as each fan's ends is to have ultimate bragging rights. It's a Gentleman's game, gallantry and morality is expected to be shown in full display.

All I'm seeing is "banter" that is as important as pea-fowl's dropping...I'm disappointed in all the true fans of the game. Your silence speaks volume. And while the pea-cocks continue to display their braggadocious intents, they should put their domains aside and welcome the challenge that awaits.

The pea-hen gets tired seeing an old champion....she is in pursuits of a new suitor/gallant-knight/pea-cock.

Shakib has underachieved in all the ICC tournaments, has poor averages. (Not pressure type player)

In big tournaments, Mahmudallah and Mashrafe become deadly warriors!

Hopefully Mushfiqur, Tamim and Shakib don't disappoint in upcoming T20 World Cup.


The most relevant comment I found to cricket in this thread. I think we should discuss topics like how "some" of the seniors are not performing, in addition to the team strategy and formation, and most importantly how to defeat India. Hopefully those are the ones that step up in the biggest game in T20 history till now, if we win the Asia cup there is a bigger beast waiting in the corner I am sure Mashrafe Mortaza will be desperate to win at the end of his T20 career.

Shakib needs to perform for us in the WC as well as the Asia Cup finals, period.

2015 ICC world cup, against Afghanistan it was Shakib and Mushfique, who rescued us. In 2007 Icc WC against India and South Africa, Skakib's performance was one of reasons for our wins

Yah, Mushfiqur with all his slumps and out of form in 2015, still averaged over 50 (2nd highest after Sarkar) in ODIs. Point is, they need to perform also when it really really matters. Which was our biggest match in 2015? Against India in the WC Quarter Finals, Shakib scored 10 runs in 34 balls took 1 wicket.
http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-cricket-world-cup-2015/engine/current/match/656485.html
Mushfiqur scored 27 out of 43 again not a significant contribution. India's Rohit Sharma scored 110 runs more than Mushfiqur who was our second best batsman in the WC.

By their standard, it was nothing and did not benefit Bangladesh in any way. Again would like to point out we need our best and experienced players to step it up even a notch further in big matches like these. That ability should be appreciated and also grown with time. With one of the biggest tournament's final looming, we need to see a special from either Tamim, Shakib or Mushfique our backbone in batting order to beat the strong lineup of India.

But again, as I said before in my earlier post in this thread, lets not put pressure on the team eventhough we would like a win, let the team play fearless but cool headed cricket. Give Shabbir, Shoumya and Tamim the license to "dominate", a word that should not be taken lightly. Give Taskin the license to bowl as fast as the wind. Just really express themselves and show the world the talent these guys possess by believing that they can do it, only then a win may come by.

My playing XI would be:

1) Tamim Iqbal
2) Soumya Sarkar
3) Sabbir Rahman
4) Mushfiqur Rahim (wk)
5) Shakib Al Hasan
6) Mahmudullah

7) Nasir Hossain (Replacing Mithun. We can't give players second/ third chances on such an important games like the finals. Hope Mithun will get more chances to represent Bangladesh in the future. So far Mithun has been a walking wicket, although fluked a 45 against UAE after getting dropped for 10 ).

8) Mash (c)
9) Al-Amin Hossain
10) Taskin Ahmed
11) Abu Hider Rony (Indians batting lineup would have destroy Arafat Sunny, if he bowls similarly as he did against the Pakistanis).

With Mustafiz out, I expect our bowling attack would be significantly weaker as opposed to our first T20I. Our batsmen need to perform very well to make up for that gap, so far they have been horrible/mediocre in all group stage games.

indians will come out attacking from the word go. First few overs are crucial. Bowl the way bowled against pakistan. Keep it very tight. If runs are dried up, wickets will fall. But dont let off pressure but build on it. India has a strong batting line up, they will try to rebuild by making small partnership. One or two over can change the game. Therefore keep getting wickets. No need to panic

- just described the most genaralized startagy of t20. Lol

To maximise the chances in WC T20 they need to play carefully and not mind about the result, is what I had said. Some posters are quick to pass good/bad judgement but it makes them very insecure and impatient.
