Hopefully, with a better pitch and some friendly breeze will bring sound comfort to the Tigers. They must rise up to the occasion to bring respectability to their coach's pre-series comments.

The day our top order will click will be the day of reckoning. They have all the ingradients, all they need to do is to be themselves and to play for themselves. With a formidable lower order batting line up and fearsome penetration from the bowling department, we have nothing to loose and everything to gain. Can the tigers wake up today?

What should have done by our BD sports journalists to boost the confidence of some of our demoralized cricketers, has done by Billah. An excellent input to maximize Alok's lost faith of his own ability. To add one more thing with Billah's thoughts, I would suggest Alok to watch the video clip of his glorious half centuries and also the hat trick bowling spell over and over again. This is exactly what the sport psychologist of team India advised Tendulkar when he was going thru the bat patch.

Anyway, its only half an our before our determined boys gonna huddle themselves to thrash WI. I am confident of a win! Too much of an asking?:embaressed:

yea i agree for Tendu sport
psychologist and journalist
played a big role..but this is BD
Kapali is not Tendu!!!
if he was he would have tried harder
he started doing bad when
he started playing so called
glorious shots to prove himself
elegent!! no need to do that when
team needs a good score
itz betta to play straight or slow
than play elegant shots and give
away wkts.

Ground of Grenada so wet, usually it takes extra time to become ready for play, moreover rain is still there like Ilisha Guri, maximum we could expect for a 25 over match again!

no play..atleast the players can
sleep and eat and have fun
and then forget to rectify their "mistakes"
and come home to eat kabab and paratas
o forget to tell ya
i bet they will do good if you bring
their families with them..like
Bashar once said after scoring hundred
in Pakistan that cus his wife and family
are there..thatz why he did good!!
BCCB should arrange that pretty often!

The rain has left the field sodden and a lengthy delay appears likely.

It therefore, appears that the match overs will be significantly reduced.

He and Eddie Nicholls made a cursory inspection at 10am, and decided to have another look at 1pm (1700 GMT). But with the forecast not good for later on, the game is under serious threat of being washed out.

latest update:
Outfield is still dump and wet to certain areas, but groundsmen are working hard to make the field playable. The commentrators are hopeful about the play being start anytime from now. Umpires and officials are on the field, walking around and inspecting.

Play must start by 1:40pm local time to have the minimum 25 overs match. Any further downpour might cause the match to be called off.

umpire david shepard said that there will be another inspection at 1pm local time and that will be the cut off point. there was no rain last 6 hrs but because of crapy field drainage system, the water still there.

do you expect a magic vacuum to appear and suck up all the water? the ground staff are trying their best.

Anyways, if there's no rain from now, the toss will begin 1:10 and match will start 1:40.

25 over match should suit us. we should just wack the ball...ashraful and rafique should both come in no later than #s 5 or 6...in fact they should be 3 and 4. we should score as many runs as possible.
are the grenada pitches batting-friendly?

EngWIndian, we have the same drainage problem at the national stadium in Dhaka, don't feel bad. Now, how about a helicopter, just like they did during the England ODI series?:)

Rain effect pitch should favor the pacers, Isn't it?

rafiq
May 19, 2004, 11:39 AM
the radio snippet i caught seems to indicate that they did use a helicopter. west indies cricket doesn't have any more money than bangladesh does, so drainage systems can't be expected to be world class in either place, although BNS in Dhaka got a new one recently.

As for rain, there is rain everywhere - a lot of england tour matches have been washed off in recent months - sri lanka, west indies eg. So, no this not another international conspiracy against poor Bangladesh.

I think in 25 overs it would be good to see Mahmud and Rafique earlier.

al Furqaan
May 19, 2004, 11:40 AM

al Furqaan
May 19, 2004, 12:34 PM
i think 130 should be safe

actaully we are surprisingly good a defending low scores.

238 against Zim (actually a decent score)
144 in the first WI ODI (almost)
so we should be alright with anything past the 120 mark, but the higher score the better.

Haha! Apparently it was one of those awkward dangulli shot from Bashar. The commentators forgave him since it's a 25 over match. One of them said it was an "interesting, improvised" shot.
