Cholo Bangladesh

For some reason I am not too excited about this series.

Unfamiliar lands, our best player missing, a talented batsman missing, off form players in the side and a non existent pace attack

These test matches are a waste. Maybe Shakib made the most sensible decision, and is just saving himself really for matches where Bangladesh at least stands a chance. A home series against South Africa would've made more sense and interesting. Expecting a 2-0 thrashing for Bangladesh. What interests me the most is can they perform a lot better against South Africa since they last toured back in 08.

Let me do some advertising.

FANTASY game is on. Please join. Deadline is an hour before the game start time.

If your outlook is gloomy on these games then you owe it to yourself to make it happy-full event. What best way to do it by than WINNING the fantasy games BD vs SA 2017?

The perk is a custom title by the Admin, which would say, "BD - SA tour 2017 fantasy winner".

WHAT DO YOU SAY?

We have few past winners enrolled already. The rules are very simple. I will do all the heavy lifting in calculations. So you don't have to worry much. Allow me to take all your worries away. lol

And if everything fails, take a risk and see how you do against the best. :)

Isam's probable XI:

1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Soumya Sarkar, 3 Imrul Kayes, 4 Mominul Haque, 5 Mahmudullah, 6 Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), 7 Sabbir Rahman, 8 Mehidy Hasan, 9 Taskin Ahmed, 10 Subashis Roy, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

Soumya Sarkar's shoulder niggle means he is not certain to play - a decision on his inclusion will be taken on the morning of the game.

So, Liton's luck is still hanging in balance.

The Worst possible case is Litton will play 2nd TEST. If both SS and Imrul play, one will most likely fail.

Waiting 1st TEST may not be a bad thing for Litton. Then there will be less presuure on him.

Hathurusingha: Best time to beat South Africa at their home (http://www.dhakatribune.com/sport/cricket/2017/09/27/hathurusingha-best-time-beat-south-africa/)“South Africa (are) a big challenge for any team. Arguably they are one of the best Test teams in the last 10 years. It’s going to be challenge. But that’s what you play cricket for. It’s an opportunity for us to see where we are at. So we take that challenge and we embrace the challenge,” Hathurusingha told the media during the pre-Test match press conference at Senwes Park Wednesday.

“However if you want to play South Africa then I think this is the best time. They got a new coach, a few injuries. This is a good time to play against them.

“They got some new players coming in. But at the same time their nucleus (are) still playing, Hashim Amla and Du Plessis, and also Dean Elgar are pretty good players in the last few years. As some of their new players are coming in, it’s a good opportunity for us to getting to their middle-order early. That’s one thing we are trying to exploit,” he said.

So, Liton's luck is still hanging in balance.

So when Shakib and Mosaddek come back, Riyad would be dropped. Question is would Sabbir make way for Mosaddek? You'd have to say he should unless he hits some really big runs in this series.

And vs SL one of the extra seamers would get dropped for Taijul.

Soumya and Imrul should swap places, otherwise that lineup is the best available one.

Pot-chef-stroom

Not sure how to pronounce it. But I will try to break down into three parts to get the meaning out of it:


Potchefstroom: Potche + FST+ Room

Potche = Something is decaying (in Bangla)
SFT = Same Flippin' Thing
Room = Room

Potchefstroom: Same Flippin' Thing is decaying in the room.

Rofl, no Subashis, once again Taskin the run machine gets the nod, without any clear justification.

Unlike Subashish, Taskin can actually create wicket taking chances. 3 of his 4 games have been played on the flattest tracks. The one which was sporting in Christchurch, Taskin was troubling the NZ batters every ball almost.

This is actually a decent side. Only missing Shakib and Mosaddek to make a full strength side. Shafiul is ideally suited to being a 3rd seamer so even he could shine here.

Yea wicket taking chances after going for 4-5 RPO, Subashish is pretty economical, in test you need someone with consistent line and lenght, not a spraygun.

adamnsu

I am not sure if its such a bad decision either as it says its over cast and our batsman would not have lasted long.

The bad decision was taking Shafiul and then playing Mehedy so early in such conditions

nsuRocks
September 28, 2017, 03:50 AM
big mistake deciding to bowl first on this batting paradise. typical escapist strategy set by mushfiq. Shafiul seems to be a medium pacer with no swing at all. Bowls 129-130 straight balls. Don't understand how he could be better than Subhasish who seems to be the second best option after Fizz.

al Furqaan
September 28, 2017, 03:53 AM
Yea wicket taking chances after going for 4-5 RPO, Subashish is pretty economical, in test you need someone with consistent line and lenght, not a spraygun.

A lot of those 4-5 rpo is due to slips dropping catches that then go on 4. If a catch is taken its 0 runs, if the ball is dropped and then goes on to cross the ropes, 4 runs are given instead of 0.

Roy is not economical. 3.6 rpo isn't economical. Roy is better than Rubel and maybe Shafiul from the bowlers we have. He's not any better than Rabbi or Robiul.

What we need is Ibadat to step up and get selected as the 3rd seamer.

al Furqaan

Taskin and Shafiul are just poor bowlers. They cant even bowl line and length. And Shafiul doesnt seem like a heavy duty bowler is expected to bowl many overs either. This is sheer stupidity taking him especially when we have better bowlers out there

Mehedy is a bowler who relies too much on the pitch to help him. He reminds me of Venkatapathy Raju. I can understand Mushfiq bringing him in as Shafiul is utter garbage.

Problem is BOTH! in my original statement I meant it was the obsession of the selectors ( i thought that was obvious :D ).

And if you dont think Shafiul is a problem on the field then please read his stats for this game too.

But I do agree with you that our selectors chose players for formats they are not suited for

Kayes is extremely limited, he just about figured out opening then he got moved, no can argue that's good logic

How many times has tamim played south africa, majority of those innings came when he was a teenager, past records mean nothing, and reason must here said Warner is a dangerous player even though he failed previously in Asia and first innings vs us

And its flat, hot could see it was flat if you're batsman fail you, then you've got nothing you can do, you take control of the game, you give batsman to play first on a batting pitch

...

Good over by taskin, need more of this

Kayes is extremely limited, he just about figured out opening then he got moved, no can argue that's good logic

How many times has tamim played south africa, majority of those innings came when he was a teenager, past records mean nothing, and reason must here said Warner is a dangerous player even though he failed previously in Asia and first innings vs us

And its flat, hot could see it was flat if you're batsman fail you, then you've got nothing you can do, you take control of the game, you give batsman to play first on a batting pitch

...

Good over by taskin, need more of this

Hence it doesnt matter if we bat first or bowl first

Mushfiqur Rahim has blessed us with a bowling attack, that consists of two run machines(Taskin and Shafiul) one unnecessary spin bowler(Miraz) and one decent pacer.

But does that justify all his spray gun style bowling, that has plagued the team since 2015. The words line and length are almost non-existent in his vocabulary. But when it comes to taking photos, this guy turns into another Hugh Jackman.

I have to agree on the Taskim issue. I mean the way he bowls juicy bouncers to the batsman is like trying to poke the Queen's guards to see if they move or are alive.

I mean both Taskin and Shaiful fail to get their line and length on spot. There are much better bowlers who can atleast do a better job in Tests than both these two combined

As in every sector of the country, a leader never steps down unless somebody takes the initiative. I do not see any X-factor in the team. Whenever you play a test series you need to introduce a young sensation, for South Africa it was Markram. For BD it was deciding to bowl first and sap out all the energy needed for batting.

He creates no amount of pressure, and does not have the mental acumen to position his field accordingly to the match situation. The little man needs to go, he is the epitome of failure, groomed for eleven years and decides to bowl on a batting wicket.

There are record of strong players like Sakib and Mashrafee (in T20) resigned in their own terms. But he is too weak so that (according to you, as I understand) Haturu is forcing him to stay? How pathetic it can be? He cries under pressure.

Chain Of Events (in order):

1. One day before the game: According to theDailyStar: "Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim had said on the eve of the match that the pitch looked dry, and would take spin later on in the match, which presumably would disadvantage the team batting second."

So it gives us an impression that if he win the toss, he will bat first.

2. Game day morning: from cricinfo: "Mushfiq felt there would be some early juice for the seamers. In contrast, Shaun Pollock reckoned it was a dry, bat-first pitch"

So it looks like he changed his mind after seeing that current condition and thinks it will help the FB day one.

3. During the game (from cricinfo): After only 4th over with ball still new: "(beginning with 5th over) Spin with the new ball. Here is Mehidy Hasan Miraz from around the wicket"

Note: At this point he didnt even tried enough with his FBs. At this point taskin didnt even bowled a single over. Also please note that its a TEST not ODI.

How clueless a captain can be? And you think its all Haturu's fault and our captain is a senseless Masum Bachha? Can anybody please explain to me why we need this clueless person to be our captain?

Sabbir moga talked like he's having a brain flart.... beta this is test ... clean pitch , that's what u will see, not a team or country. Bd should've batting first to start fresh... now sa will score 550 minimum and bd will be break down like a no tomorrow because of tiredness...
When I saw musfiq choose to bowl, I boycotted this match ... good luck to bd if they have it ..

Well said cricbook bro :up:

This team was developed with overloading batting order. And then it was a dry dead wicket in day one. Then why our Modon selected to bat first and exposing our weak and thin bowling too early in the game. Why? Is he scared of SA fast bowlers? Even in this pitch?

If he is so scared to bat, then why even play? Just retire and let someone fight for the country.

When we will get rid of this P&ssy? I am getting tied of his silliness.

agree. no need to shift blame to Hathu. Mushfiq has been shifting blame from every decision for eternity. its been always like :abbu bolse, abbu bolse, abbu bolse.abbur dosh. ami dudh bhat captain! captain hoisos ken? ami chesra toh 500 taka beshi beton dei oitar lobh sarte pari na. atleast ashraful bhayyur moto ghush to khai na!

Why is Mahmadullah back?

This tells me his exclusion from text XI was not a landmark move that showed intent to replace the 5 failing pillars with new blood. Rather the boy was just shoved down the pecking order, and his spot opened up with Shakib's absence.

It seems the management got credit it should not have deserved when they axed Mahmadullah.

The retarded Mushfiqur Rahim, has reared his head, to decide and bowl first, probably one of the biggest blunders of his captaincy career, simply do not understand the lack of fight and the constant focus of going for a draw, but sorry. Bowling first in this pitch with pathetic bowlers are a recipe for disaster.

The blithering idiot backed by selfie star Taskin and sick Shafiul have been and will be a utter liability to this team.

Why do captains make toss decisions by themselves anyway? Don't they have a team advising them? And with all the tech that exists today, don't they have a device that can measure how the pitch is going to act? Or if not that, then you can look towards indirect measures such as the weather, the history, etc. etc.

He's the scapegoat of the day.

When he quit the captaincy in 2013 these people probably cried. They want Tamim now, tomorrow they will want Sabbir, and then Liton after that.

Kneejerkers one and all. Like field setting on this pitch will make the ball seam and swing and grow grass magically. Its not the Harry Potter way of captaining a side.

Well I dont believe he has nothing to do with it. We see the difference in captaincy when Mash is leading the side. If 10 ppl questions Mash, you will have about 10000 ppl question Mushy's technique. He may not be Harry Potter but his decisions and attitude sure resembles Crab and Goyle

Of course we are bowling poorly, and the pitch is batting friendly thus far. But it is more than that.
Mahmadullah taking Shakib's spot really demoralized the team. The juniors believed that the management had moved away from politics and stuff, but to their dismay they have brought back one of the failing five pillars.

Also Shafiul's selection was not a good one.

Also, maybe test cricket was due such a one sided snooze fest as it is known for. Cricket fans have been spoiled with too many close matches in the last two years.

He's got that bounce though. That extra bounce always edges out batsman. Especially sub continental batsman. But I like Rubel and Al Amin as well. Especially Al Amin who had a knack of picking up wickets. But again, the stupid BCB mismanaging things as always. Blackballing a player simply because of an incident.

In test, you have to do the basics, well maintain line and length, hit it in good areas. Taskin does not do any of that, he just went for 8 runs in 2 balls, by Elgar. Taskin is a pristine example of all brawn no brains. Releases all the pressure that bowlers have created in the other end and bangs it in too full or too short.

Rubbish incapable brainless, bowler that has been overhyped by his pace, which he can barely control, other than that 5 fifer against a sh1t Indian A side. Wished he stayed banned.

Hahaha. No, I have to respectfully disagree. I agree he lacks most in brain. But he has enough pedigree, and will be the tip of the spear in our bowling attack along with Mustafizur for years to come, unless somehow we discover another star who can edge out Taskin.
