I don`t understand why they need to celebrate their Eid and go for off days in between the series when the time gap between the two match is very little. They are on a mission and they need to concentrate this as a project before it ends

Ian Chappell's reason for why Australia lost to BD? They didn't play any competitve games ahead of the tours. :lol::lol:

Right, because Bangladesh plays competitive games non-stop. If BD had lost, this same guy would be criticizing us and questioning our test status yet again. But when Aus loses, suddenly game experience is important.

BD will win this, but Australia will come hard so we need to play at a higher level than first test. Raise the aggression level to even higher level, this time the whole team has to stand up and perform.

We got this, a chance in a decade to win a series against Australia, don't let this slip, let's hope the tigers give it their heart and soul.

The preview:

Defeat in Chittagong would see Australia will drop to sixth on the ICC Test rankings, their lowest position on the table since it began in 2003. A win or draw would slip them down from fourth to fifth. Bangladesh will climb from ninth to eighth with a win or a draw.

I really hope we win the next test also. Hetmyer just cracked am unbeaten century at more than a run-a-ball in the practice match. He will most likely replace Kyle Hope.

I don't know how BD will fare in England. For one, their spinners will be less effective. They need to invest in the pacers. For the umpteenth time, Walsh should be replaced.

I'll drop Shabbir for Mominul at least. I'll still keep Nasir. Bangladesh have to bat a lot better. Batsman other than Tamim and Shakib need to contribute. I'll also consider using only one pacer for this 2nd test, and go in with an extra batsman.

You have to play either Shaiful or Taskin. I just don't like Taskin in our test XI.
Or the other option is play Soumya as part time seamer and Fizz!
But this is scary knowing that Fizz aint his normal self.

Hence two genuine pacer needed. If Taskin play's, good luck to him.
If I had to pick one, I would pick Shafiul, at least can add some value runs down the order, even if its 10+ runs..

1st innings Shafiul scored 13 runs.
2nd innings he scored 9 runs.
22 runs in total! deadly vital runs...

say whatever you like about his bowling... but boy sort of won us the match.
those runs were Gold!

But saying all the above.. he might be dropped..

Taskin has improved his batting he can get 20 runs too, his bowling helps out mustafizur more, and he's better than shafiul, hes had more drop catches than catches in tests, he would have had way more wickets if we could catch, Shafiul doesn't produce a single chance, taskin adds that pace and aggression

I'd rather go 1 seamer and Soumya than shafiul

Roy should have been picked ahead of both

8.50am Warm welcome, all. First things first: it's bright and sunny and Chittagong. The rain and thunderstorm of yesterday has cleared, which means we're likely to start on time. Bangladesh are in a rare position from which they can call the shots. How they handle pressure will determine if this series ends 1-1 or 2-0. They've in the past taken a lead thrice and have gone on to win. But those were against Zimbabwe and a depleted West Indies.

I cant wait to see this lineup with mominul in. Only way it makes sense is if Soumya comes down, with Imrul opening and Momin at 3. Then we have Sabbir, Soumya, and Nasir in the lower middle order.

Bangladesh has won the toss and opted to win

Another player who does this is Sabbir.

Imrul can kiss his international career goodbye. However, he can't complain especially when his career average in ODIs and tests is 27 or less and less than 10 in T20Is.

Coach knows the best in my humble opinion and over reliance on mushfiq, Sakib and Tamim as the new comers didn't show anything consistent performance is causing the coach to play with people who are not good for the team because of media and emotion of supporters ..

Sarkar needs to score a 100 to shut the jingoistic bigots down

Let him score a century first. I am a critic of Sarkar the test batsman but so far he hasn't been able to make it count.

If he can score a century and also be consistent then no one will complain. Unfortunately he only has himself to blame.
