Doesn't matter if we go through or not. I just want us to sign off with a good win against a top-ranked team on foreign soil. Would also help secure our ranking for the next little while.

Our biggest problem now is form of taskin

only player that can take out Williamson consistently is Taskin and he's all out of form

Bowl isn't swinging this tournament and guys that bang it in at 140 with bounce are giving batsmen the most trouble, we have 2 players that would have done well, Roy and Taskin, Roy isn't there and Taskin is out of form

Definitely missed a trick by leaving out Roy for Shafiul

Other problem

we don't have a number 3, Sabbir shouldn't be there, maybe mushfiq, but that will weaken our middle order too much, but imrul hasn't been good enough.

Problem 3,

Sarkar trying to be tamim and go at 80 whilst playing his shots which isn't his game, he needs to go hard and repeatedly, he can edge it past inner circle

I hope our players are watching and learning. Mixing the seam position is working wonders in these pitches, and the best seam position for express pace and bounce here looks to be cross seam. The wobbly seam is also useful

Roy_1
June 6, 2017, 07:09 PM
Hope Fizz does justice to his talent this time, hate to see him going wicket less, I like that kid, I want him to take a 5fer and win the match for BD so that we could beat him to a pulp in the semis and settle past score once and for all :D

Anyways good luck brothers.

Totally agreed! I still agree the awesome ball from Taskin to Kane. For all those who forgot:

33.6
Taskin Ahmed to Williamson, OUT, how about that for a first Test wicket? Full, angled in, and straightens away, off the seam, slightly outside off. Williamson dangles his bat out and gets a thin edge behind to Kayes. Waist-high catch. First real false shot from the NZ captain. Fifty and out


And we need to attack New Zealand and put them off pace, Sarkar needs to play a big innings. Too much dependent on Tamim's batting atm, we need others to step up big time. The whole team needs to contribute and need to be calm and composed, we need to attack but can't give up till the last ball. Also, the balance of the team will play a huge factor I think in the result. We need to win this match, whichever way possible. Desperate measures needed!

best scenario for us as one of the members here said:-

1. Eng beats Aus by more than 21 runs
2. Our game vs NZ gets wash out
3. RR takes us to semis to face the top team in group B
4. SA beat Ind to become top team in group B
5. We face SA in the semis, game gets rain interrupted and as a result D/L helps us + SA have one of their best chokes ever, we go to final
6. final gets washed of..we become joint champions!!

no one can say we haven't won a ICC trophy!

Disagree. either win with dignity or go home. Look at what happened to Kenya. they reached the semis of 2003 World cup and now nobody talks about them. If Bangladesh has to lift the cup they have to win all the remaining matches from here on the field regardless of how weather plays. Must apply common sense and not emotion (RR too slow bla bla bla drop him drop this drop that).

Ironically, in the past Bangladesh sucked due to a lack of proper skill. Now, it is due to a lack of proper judgement and assessment!

I believe Sa will beat India. It's not Indian pitch , also Sa played 3 Odis in England recently.
My main point is if srilanka beats Pakistan, they will play allout against India ... if somehow srilanka becomes B runner up..... surely England will play allout too against Australia. I know till now that England vs Australia means Pak vs ind match .... i don't think India would ever give a chance to Pakistan to win purposely... So now Ct getting really interesting if srilanka beats India tomorrow.

1. Sri Lanka has very little chance of being Group B runner-up, leaving SA/IND out.
2. Even if England lose against Australia, it is extremely likely that they will still be group champions and get to play Sri Lanka!
3. In reality, the current England side simply does not care about playing 1st/2nd seed

In my opinion, one motivation they may have for winning is to carry the momentum on to the semis, but they could still rest some key players

Rinathq
June 7, 2017, 03:20 AM
alright, I would play this XI in this order,

Tamim
Soumya
Shakib
Mushy
Riyad
Shabbir
Mosaddek
Miraz
Mash
Rubel
Fizz

Play Shak at no.3.. he wont do worse then Imrul, Shabbir.... he is useless down the order anyways. He can be used the same way Shabbir was tried.. To accelerate early on. Bring back Mosaddek... Play Miraz as well.

2nd math
- eng vs aus washed out

3rd math

I would play another additional bowler in Taskin in place of Imrul.
Our bowling looks toothless otherwise.
We can score 300 but we will not win with out of form Shakib and Mash

mishu
June 7, 2017, 09:24 AM
We need to play more spin, let mahmudulla have few overs, and pick Sanzamul instead of Imrul as we can't rely on Shakib's left arm spin ( and now we have 3 OB in the team ). yes they might give more runs but we will have higher chance of getting wickets, we also have Shakib, mosaddek and sabbir in case.

Tamim
Soumya ( we don't have any better)
Sabbir ( no other number 3 as well )
Mushfiq
Shakib
Mosaddek
Mahmudullah
Mehdi Hasan
Mashrafe ( I wouldn't play him )
Taskin or Rubel
Mustafiz

nsuRocks
June 7, 2017, 09:58 AM
Cant go back with 8 batsman again just because we got allout for 180.
Need to be aggressive with team selection. No back up openers please. Drop Soumya if you love Ka-edge so much
My team
1. Tamim
2. Soumya
3. Sabbir
4. Mushfiq
5. Sakib
6. Mahmudullah
7. Mosaddek/sanzamul
8. Mehedi
9 Mash
10 Rubel
11 Mustafiz
Ideally the best batsman of the team is supposed to bat at 3 ie Kohli, Williamson, Smith, Root....
Since Tamim is an opener Mushfiq should have been batting there. But might be too much of a shakeup in the middle of a series. So I would keep Sabbir there for this series.

Roey Haque
June 7, 2017, 09:59 AM
I put together this team, not as the ideal team or line up, where the seniors should show more balls, or where bowlers are managed efficiently.

I put together this team considering the emotional fragility of our guys and their tendency to collapse. And of course I had to use what I have in the squad. So here it goes. This should prevent a collapse, and should make us scrappy enough when fielding to take it to the last over or something.



Tamim
Soumya
Sabbir (1 over)
Masfeequr
Shakib (8 over)
Mossadek (5 overs)
Mahmadullah (2 overs)
Mehedi (10 overs)
Mashrafe (6 overs)
Rubel (8 0vers)
Mustafizur (10 overs)

Who was chucking?

Imad Wasim, hasan Ali, Hafeez, all chucked consistently throughout the tournament, hasan Ali jogs in and throws the ball

Wahab chucked few vs India, but it looked like he was injured... So I'll give him a pass as he clearly wasn't trying to gain an advantage and was sent home straight after

Travis Head also chucked half his deliveries

And when I say chucked, am not saying that maybe an illegal action, am saying for 100% it is an illegal action, worse than sunny faster ball chuck

Back to track

It's a must win situation for us. We have to score 300+ if we bat first and restrict NZ below 300 (for that you have to get min 8 wickets). Same thing if we chase.

To make a 300+ score, we need Tamim to score big as usual and others contribute to the total. If Tamim fails, no matter how much depth we get in the batting order, we won't score 300. So, I would take extra bowlers rather.

Imrul is out obviously. So, we can put Sabbir back at 3 and he can manage 40 runs at best on a good day. If we put Shakib there, he can manage 30-40 runs as well by hitting and missing, not that he is doing any better at 5. Then we can play Sabbir as a power finisher. Mushy shouldn't upgrade to 3 as our middle order would crumble w/o him. Basically, we have 7 batsmen who will need to score 300 as our tale-enders can't score at all. Top 5 need to make 250 runs (50 each which is a stretch).

I included 5 specialist bowlers as we only got 3 wickets in 2 matches. Taskin included for pace variation and aggression. Mehedi included as he can manage 20-25 runs at the end and Shakib isn't in form.


1. Tamim
2. SS
3. Shakib
4. Mushy
5. Mullah
6. Sabbir
7. Mehedi
8. Mash
9. Taskin
10. Rubel
11. Fizz

Mosa can be considered for Shakib. :D

Batting line-up is wrong. Tamim and Sarker are fine as openers, but it's the middle order which is giving me a headache. Ideally, it should be Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah at 3/4 followed by Shakib, Shabbir, Mosaddek, Mehedi...

alright, I would play this XI in this order,

Tamim
Soumya
Shakib
Mushy
Riyad
Shabbir
Mosaddek
Miraz
Mash
Rubel
Fizz

Play Shak at no.3.. he wont do worse then Imrul, Shabbir.... he is useless down the order anyways. He can be used the same way Shabbir was tried.. To accelerate early on. Bring back Mosaddek... Play Miraz as well.

They can try shakib at number 3 as no one has particularly done well at that position. Again, the bowlers have to bowl better. They have seen how Australian seamers bowled the other day.

No need for another spinner on a small ground, straight hit is small. Play Sakib only spinner, Mossadekk instead of Kayes. Taskin in for Miraz.

Sabbir
Mushy
Shakib
Mossadekk
Mahmudullah

Rubel
Taskin

That pitch (exposed one) look like it is green.

If that is the case, win toss and bowl first. Gamble with taskin?

Thanks for the updates Goru. Fantastic reporting.

I too think we should bowl first Rifat, because you need both batting and bowling to win the game, and we have shown no tooth in our bowling this tournament. Go in there, bowl smartly and aggressively, give no extras, and field out of your skin. Restrict them to less than 300.

Our batsman have the ability to chase 300 and below. 300 +, and they lack the toughness. Soft.

No, there is no need to gamble. Taskin has been giving more wides than deliveries in the build up to this.

Our current options are good, but just need to keep it tight. And Mash must finish his quota before the 40th. Mosa and Mahmudullah must be tried. Miraz should be given his 10.

Guys it's not going to get rained out (at least according to forecast). It's even a bit sunny right now. Since there's loads of time, they just want to make sure they've made everything as dry as possible.

Sophia Gardens will always have a special place in my memories. Say BD beat Australia. It was a packed stadium and a brilliant atmosphere.

During the early part of the game people were still coming in. It is situated inside a lovely park.

I think the reasons for low turnout:
- Weather obviously and a weekday
- The problem with this ground is, it is not that easy to get to if you are using public transport for people who live outside Wales.
- Also people outside Cardiff would not want to make such an early start to go to the game
- Not so many Bangladeshis/Aussies live in Wales compared to London

This match should have been held in England. Bad decision by ECB here.

Don't lose a wicket in the first 6 overs. Build a platform and then go for it at the end with wickets in hand. Need to do this the old school way. I am worried about the law of averages for Tamim
