View Full Version : 38 runs too many

November 29, 2002, 01:23 AM
Powell scored 88 off 50 balls. Those 38 runs made the difference between 235 for 7 and 273 for 7. *sigh*

Rafique, Durjoy and Manju did better than the rest.

We let this one get away from us.

The score keeps changing!!

Anyway, we totally let this one go. Some great stuff from Powell and pretty poor captaincy. In a one day match, you have to make quick changes. You dont give a guy who has given away 19 runs in his last over, another go. Not at the late stages. You are asking for it. I don't know why Pilot is so reluctant to change his bowlers around.

but those last 4 overs yielded 60 runs?

even so, an asking rate of 5.5 is doable on this wicket if you are chasing, the batsmen have to believe in themselves and have a strategy for all 50 overs.

are WI that explosive or did pilot really mess up with the changes? who got the 6th wicket - ashraful or kapali?

The manner in which Nagamootoo cheekily paddle-swept the final ball of the innings told the story of the innings. Bangladesh, who had done a fantastic job of keeping things tight with spin, started to drift in the crucial final overs, and the tourists grabbed the chance to amass a sizeable 275.

A combination of attacking play by Powell and Ganga and poor bowling and captaincy. Its the usual story. Nothing new!

Given how much WI scored against India, I would have probably taken 275 at the start of the day, but with the way we began, this is TERRIBLE!!

well, imagine sitting at the end of the 46th over and having given up only 213. damn good day so far! inexperience meant they had no idea how 4 overs could change the face of the game.

shoikoth, what is your problem, man?

Yeah, he has a real problem. Tehsin bhai, you should have a look!

The commecnt made by the person was funny. It said something about making comments while hiding behind your monitors. Dude, you go to any fan site for any country, you will see the same thing. Besides, did it ever occur to you that YOU ARE THE ONE HIDING BEHIND A MONITOR AND BEING AN *** TO STRANGERS ? Seriously, some of these folks need to take a look at themselves before lounging on others.

As for our comments, this is nothing compared to what the players have to hear from the stadiums. You'd know that if you have ever stepped on a stadium instead of hiding behind your own monitor and insulting other people. To my knowledge, kono bhalo manush er pola ei shob korena.

You'll see us make all sorts of comments because this is OUR team, this are our player and after the game, we will invite this players into our homes because they represent Bangladesh.

Realize this, WE ARE NOT THE ONE's going to a FAN forum and trying to pick up a fight. What does that say about you ? :)
