Welcome,

No time to waste. Focus on the 2nd ODI. Very important for both teams. Will we see a fightback from Windies? Or will Bangladesh seal the deal for their first overseas series win in 9 years?

In hindsight, the record 2nd wicket partnership for Bangladesh made a big difference in the win for BD. There are mixed views in the forum on this partnership: they batted too slow, they were targeting personal landmarks, etc. They gave a few chances to the Windies fielders, but they could not capitalize on them.
Mushfiqur. Who is this guy? Prime. He came in and made 30 in no time. Does he need to go up in the order? Or play the finisher role as in the 1st ODI?

Bangladesh's bowling is top-notch right now. Skipper Mashrafe in great form, very disciplined. Mustafizur providing good support. Rubel was inconsistent with his lines. Bangladesh might play him again in this game. The spinners were miserly.

Hope to see a better performance from Windies.
BD might drop Sabbir and Anamul for Shanto and Liton Das. It's unlikely Mushfiqur will give up the gloves.

Windies might drop Rovman Powell or probably stick with the same team.

All the best to both teams:)

Let's see a more competitive game :up:

Guyanese pitch is traditionally slow. Nothing we can do to change that. Hetmyer the only one able to bat well on it since he's a Guyanese.

Shakib and Rubel need to tighten their bowling. But otherwise bowling is solid with many options.

Sabbir was only in the team because we thought he could be the finisher we needed with the big shots, but 5 years and we've seen nothing substantial. Meanwhile Riyad developed nicely into that role, which pretty much makes Sabbir's inclusion worthless.

I also bet the think-tank behind Anamul's inclusion thought he would be good for this serious because he has a good average against WI , regardless of him not playing intl's in years :lol:

Anamul has no place in the team. Shabbir’s role is to play a cameo and fielding and he should stay.

However I think Shakib higher up the batting order is quite risky.

What's with the Anamul hate?

The lad should be given another crack at the international cricket. The amount of chances we gave to some of our current seniors players are quite astonishing. Remember Ashraful (Thank God he's no here as a walking-wicket)? The guy couldn't bat to save his life yet he was in the squad match after match. Mushy was failing miserably too at the beginning. So did Tamim. Tamim was even dropped and thrown back in the A team to learn his crafts. Shoummo was given more than enough chances in the last couple of years. His exclusion can now be justified.

Anamul has the potential and should be given enough chances just like others. Shoummo was drafted in the team time after time all because he has potential and he had shown his worth in the PAK and SAF series. Same can be applied to Anamul too. Unfortunately both Anamul and Shoummo couldn't come out of their bad patches.

Anamul, Shoummo, Shanto, Nurul etc are the future of our cricket after our big guns retire.

Having said all that, I think if Anamul fails in the second ODI then Liton should open. I am not an Anamul fan (I prefer Imrul over Anamul any day) but I think Anamul should still be in the squad for couple of series at least. He does have the temperament to play long innings. People who complain about his footwork should look how CG of WI plays.

I'd drop Sabbir and keep Anamul. One more chance for him. Sabbir was unlucky to get that decide against him. Liton is more of an FC player. Anamul is the one with international century.

One more chance for Anamul. Play Shanto.

And the same thing with WIndies. Don't drop Rovman. He is a good striker of the ball. Will be useful in the next match. I have a feeling that he will come good in the next game given the chance.

Drop Shakib down a spot. Mushy at 3.

I think Mosaddek should bat at #3. He's the future, and reminds me of Steve Smith. Also, he's actually good with the ball. He's a better version of Nasir Hossain whom I'm glad has been dropped. Ideally, it should be Mushfiqur batting at #3. He needs to give up the gloves, and hand them over to Nurul Hasan. Yes, Nurul Hasan should be part of the national side. Solid keeping skills are vital at this level. Mashrafe was excellent in the last game, and I just hope he manages to reach 250 ODI wickets before he calls it quits. He deserves a lot more than that.

Shakib is doing well at 3 but I think Mossaddek should come at 4 and Mushfiq at 5 and sending Mahmudullah at 6 and Nurul to finish off the innings at 7 after which bowlers come in.

July 24, 2018, 09:09 AM
Sabbir needs to go, period. He neither can play at the top nor can finish an inning. Mushy & Mullah are way better finisher than him. Instead, we should groom Shanto in either for No. 3 or 4 position.

I'm reluctant to play Anamul as well. I've never seen someone defending (not drive) a ball 2.5 feet outside off-stump. If he deserves a chance, he can play in the 3rd ODI after we win the 2nd one.

Liton and shanto should play, if you want anamul in there maybe it should be instead of sabbir, possibly lower order hitter, a lot of posters here wanted (not sure if still want) anamul in the t20 team, as long as he has he mindset of accelerating rather than accumulating. Otherwise stick with sabbir (though he doesn’t deserve to be in the team right now).

Yes it will be the same team. 5 of us can come up with 5 different team combinations but it's ultimately up to Mashrafe. In an interview before the one day series he said he wants to give more chances to players like Anamul.

weekyd
July 25, 2018, 07:54 AM
I think Liton is going to be featured in all 3 T20s. His explosive batting in The Nidahas trophy with Tamim kind of sealed his place in T20 format for now. His hand-eye coordination and timing was a treat to watch. Some of the sixes he hit were absolute blinders.

As Mash said, Anamul will be given enough chances regardless of how he performs. We might see Liton in the 3rd ODI if Anamul fails or we win the series. I hope he gets a chance.

RealSports
July 25, 2018, 07:54 AM
Anamul would be suited lower down the order. The ball gets older, and he has the range of shots to hit anywhere around the field – it will be easier for him otherwise he shouldn't be in the side. I'm a fan of Nurul Hasan (underrated player), and Mushfiqur Rahim should give up the gloves now. Solid keeping skills are vital in the sport, and can make all the difference.

Just wondering:
How many chance is enough chance for Anamul?

Is it important to give players like Anamul chances at the cost of risking a loss in a series like WI or its more important to give enough chances to players like Anamul even it may cost the series?

Do you think a) lack of chance is where preventing Anamul to go to stardom or b) its more related to his mental and technical issues that is preventing him to go to stardom? if its b), then do you think he has addressed his technical issues?

Yes I want Anamul to be successful (if possible), but my worry is giving him chances in the wrong time may hurt rather than help his (still) young career.

The other option is Liton Das. The guy has scored at an average of 15 in ODI and we have bowlers who have averaged close to that. Of course there is Shanto but my guess is that he will make it to the Asia Cup squad and the Ireland A series will be testing him for it. Don't forget that Anamul has 3 ODI century already and has shown he is capable of playing at the top level.

I agree. I also never want any player not to succeed either. But rather giving him a chance I would prefer to give youngsters a chance.

I understand he does well in domestics but probably thats his potential and he cant convert that into the international arena. Some players are not just meant to be and thats Anamul.

Also its a bit worrying that BCB picks guys like Anamul,Nasir and Shafiul as it kind of implies that our U19 have not produced anyone special enough, but then again it is BCB

Fazal
July 25, 2018, 09:43 AM
Don't forget that Anamul has 3 ODI century already and has shown he is capable of playing at the top level.

The question is where and when? And what kind of pitch?

I am not an expert here, nor do I claim one. He doesn't look like have any footwork to survive these kind of pitch. Nor does it looks like he has improved (in that aspect). Its a very brief innings, but I see little hope.

I hope I am wrong though...may be he will prove me wrong in 2nd ODI.

On the other hand, I see Litton more technically competent. His issue is mental. When he first came, he had issues depending too much on his leg-side shots, but looks like he went back (away from national team) and addressed that issue. that's what I want to see from an young player, they learn their deficiency, goes back and work on it (to address that) and then come back with more ammunition. My problem with Anamul is, I see the same old Anamul.
