July 27, 2004, 07:06 PM
Bangladesh U19 team will lock horns with its British counterpart tomorrow, Wednesday, July 28 at Headingley in a 4 day test match. Unlike the seniors, the Bangladesh U19 team is no minnow in the world stage. With 100% winning record at the practice matches where the wins were not only comfortable but also convincing, our team is well prepared and ready to take on whatever challenges come by.

The BD U19 team has made visible and notable progress in recent past, thanks to coach McInnes and his support stuff. No wonder the hope runs high enough for the fans who desperately look for something to cheer about.

So, this would be the beginning of a series to see out how much progress the juniors really made and if any of them be actually matured enough to rush his way in to the senior slots.

Good luck to the young tigers.

BTW, anyone knows if this is the first U19 test mach for Bangladesh? How about England?

I think we could see at least 2/3 players from this U-19 team moving to the senior team in ICC Campion's trophy since all the senior players are now out of form. This tour will be a good match practice for them in England condition.

whats wrong with cricinfo? this is amusing. hopefully, we'll see some good show. every time senior citizens ooops, cenior team plays, we are to get ready for humiliation. u19 should prove it otherwise.

one question though, they did good in practice matches, but how many of them are actually under 19 of age?

They are all under 19. We have stopped age doctoring about couple of years ago. With a talent pool like ours, it wasn't really necessary any more.

As for the live scorecard, anything involving top (under 19s are top) test teams are usually covered. However, anything involving England, Australia and India is always top priority with cricinfo. Which turned out to be a great thing for us.

Headingley is renowed for favouring the bowlers and the english bowlers are getting a lot of movement off the pitch.

I don't think the boys would have played on this type of wicket before.

So lets be patient before we go off on one!!

Shish Ahmed
July 28, 2004, 07:49 AM
Why?? Let's be frank compared to other test nations we have not got the facilities, local coaches, physios.

The top countries in world cricket look at players diets, physical condition, injury rehabilitation and in general the grass roots level are good.

Bearing in mind of all these factors BD have a long way to go, but are heading in the right direction even though it is a bit slow.

-->And again, I dont get it, why they are doing so bad soon after they made a good practice match?
They should realize that this is not a practice match. they should pour everything they have on this match
not in practice! This is the match they deserve for.
Does it need to be a top country or its
top facility?

U-19 had won a side game convincingly and based on that performance, a few posts in this forum hailed these U-19 players as of better quality than the seniors. Looking at their performance against England U-19 team, they may not be good enough even for U-19 tests.

Top order fails miserably and the tail enders bail the team out. The U-19 team is emulating the seniors perfectly. Cannot they emulate the seniors of some other countries and make sure that the top order does its assigned job ?

Saw the score but just realized this is Headingley.
I think someone astutely mentioned the headingley pitch earlier on. This is quite true. The English U-19 have capitalised on winning their toss win, and they may have just had a hint of the behaviour of the pitch. I would say it is too early to dismiss these youngsters.

Poorfan,

I've met the U19 boys and some of them have been playing only 3/4 years. Even some boys are 16/17 yrs old.

On the other hand the english boys have been playing for 6/7 yrs as they start off from school cricket then go on to age group level U13s, U14s U15s etc.

Bd has only started age group cricket in the last 2/3 years.

Also if you think Bangladesh Crickters have the same facilities as the English, please think again and come into the real world.

The Stiff dude was a fast bowler and seemed to have given much trouble even though he didn't get any wicket.

He bowled only 10 over and gave 22 runs (11 extras). He didn't bowl more than 10 overs while few others did.

Let's see if Rajib can sing with the ball and others capitalize on this.

The pitch probably had dried up by now and we may have to wait for the second morning to get some moisture.

Given the two experienced batsmen (Nafis Iqbal and Aftab Ahmed) failed 230 is reasonable score.

Nafis Iqbal (http://usa.cricinfo.com/link_to_database/PLAYERS/BDESH/N/NAFIS_IQBAL_25024674/) played 21 first class longer version match ... he is pretty experienced for U-19 tests.

-Totally agree.. We can't hide behind the 'oh we're so deprived, lacking everything' execuses. These U-19 team, more than any BD players in history had been given everything a country like BD can provide..Just look at all the Specialist/Coaches brought in from Aus.

Looked like they did great in ODI and in other practice 'test' against ECB.
Once going got tough, they crumbled. 230 is a good enough score - in an ODI.

I'm tired of hearing what seem to be a programmed response typical of victim mentality.
I don't know much about anything, but I doubt any other third world country (subcontinent included), inspite of its dire conditions, provided the nurturing environment that this U-19 been afforded to.

What else should BD authorities do..hatch BD players in UK/Aus?..have them stay there while they learn from the 'best facilities' and when they grow up come back home and play for us?

Besides, physios, nutrition experts, the authorities apparently even got psychologist flying in from overseas for crying out loud ??

What else..??

Yes, we gotta be patient and give time. For us to get to a state where we can regularly compete with the elites w/o being scared penniless. There will be a time when BD will be at the same level as the likes of Aus, ENG etc.

But, right now all we are asking is not to fall into the same routine of playing irresponsible cricket like their elder brothers on the other side.

In light of current conditions that surrounds the U-19 team, I don't think that is too much to ask for from the millions of fans.

Are you talking about U19 team or national team? Either way they are playing professional cricket here. It is not a place just to have fun like the ametuers do. This is business, they are supposed to be professional. If they are 14-18 years and are not ready to play they should not be in the team in the first place. They must act like professionals and play like professionals, otherwise they will be humiliated by rest of the teams by losing big.

Lets be serious please. There is plenty of places in school cricket for them to have fun, but not when are in the national teams. Here fun is when you are fighting hard for a win and competing neck to neck.

Like Indians, our young generations are also watching, STAR or ESPN where they can also see all the big name players, we have no disadvantage here. They are not learning on their own, they are surrounded with foreign and national coaches and players. They have the opportunity to see lots of international mathches by both being on and off the field. Not long ago, BD hosted U19 cricket championship.

Bottom line, lets just not come up with excuses that we are inexperienced, we are new, we are deprived of facilities, we dont have this or that. Its like you are already in a BIG WAR and you are crying and telling the enemy that "please dont kill me, I am so inexperienced and I have no arms to fight with". If you are not ready lets not even go to the war. It will save humiliations and distrespect from others.

Dont give others the opportunity to make fun of you and laugh at you. We are playing test cricket for 4 years now. If you are still not ready or are not capable of competing at this level, honestly speaking, I really dont think we deserve to be there anymore. We might not win overnight, but if we can't even compete then whats the point?

Every now and then in the USA we Bangladeshis are like a laughingstock of Indians and Pakistanis. Are we going to be humiliated like this forever? Is it just a game? When are we going to get serious? Somebody mentiioned that over the last 4 years, other teams also made progress, so ours is not obvious. Great then, over the nest 100 years, we will get better, but we will keep losing since others will also make progress. How insane is this?

Lets move forward with real professional attitude like what we see in NFL/MLB, lets make the players responsible for their actions leading the team down, besides giving them the best facicilities available within our capacity. Lets tell them, here in this stage, this is no joke or fun fun or do "whatever I want to do" anymore, it is the BIG league, where DO or DIE is the way to go. Perform, or get out of the way.
That is what makes a great team and a successful one.

chinaman
July 28, 2004, 01:41 PM
Agree with reyme for most part. We should not look for lame excuses. However I don't see anything wrong with loosing to a better team. Loosing is never insane. We have been trying hard for only few years to reach where everybody else are for ages. We just can't go there overnight. It takes time, takes generations.

What we should be proud of is the progress we are making. The progress is slow and lower than we expect it to be. But nonetheless we are making steady progress.

This is probably the first time our young boys are playing 4 day match. Captain Cook's team is no crook team either. Is it really expected that we are capable of winning against teams that already proved their worth?

Ofcourse a win is in our hope and it will be in every match irrespective of the opponent. This is a fan thing. Nothing wrong with that. But we should always be ready to take anything not going our way as sportingly as possible without jumping guns.

At this stage of development, we really should expect good fight more often from both seniors and juniors. How often, I don't know. But it should be lot more often than before.

The game is not over yet for the U19 team, let alone the series which consists of 3 tests and 3 ODIs. So far our boys showed good fighting spirit and ability.

I'm proud of them.

England U19 79 for 1 (Cook 45*) trail Bangladesh U19 230 (Shamsur 68) by 151 runs


Bangladesh's Under-19s demonstrated that their senior side's new-found stickability is filtering through the age groups, as England were made to fight for the ascendancy on the opening day of the first Test at Headingley. After being reduced to 110 for 6 by Simon Cusden and Adam Harrison, Bangladesh fought back to a respectable 230, thanks to a counterattacking 68 from Shamsur Rahman, and an invaluable ninth-wicket stand between Nazmul Hossain and the captain, Enamul Haque jr.


Enamul, who played two Tests against England in the winter, bowled Bangladesh to victory over Australia in the final of the Plate Championship at the recent Under-19 World Cup, and once again he took the opportunity to demonstrate his burgeoning maturity. He made 36 from 83 balls, and Nazmul 33 from 117, as Bangladesh recovered from 143 for 8 to 221 for 9, at which point Luke Wright eventually dismissed both men.



England had won the toss and chose to bowl first in typically helpful Headingley conditions, whereupon Cusden and Harrison made the early incisions. Their former captain, Nafis Iqbal, who slapped England's senior players for a merry century in October, was removed for a fifth-ball duck, and Aftab Ahmed, another man to feature in the Bangladesh squad in that series, fell for 6.



Wickets fell at steady intervals thereafter, although Shamsur remained steadfast, and put away the bad deliveries while his team-mates struggled. When he eventually became Harrison's second victim of the innings, Bangladesh were staring at disaster at 143 for 8, but the tail wagged to excellent effect.


Bangladesh's mood improved even more when Joe Denly fell to his third delivery in England's reply, but Alistair Cook produced a captain's innings of 45 not out to carry England to a healthy 79 for 1 at the close, with his Essex team-mate, Ravinder Bopara, batting alongside him on 25.

pompous, if you note carefully my mortem is really nothing to do with this match, i am against the ametuer attitude and taking too easy mode which can be very destructive. i think it is worth becoming very serious and be professional although we might not have that setting in the domestic leagues yet.

Amusingly I see more and more positive attitude and professionalism in McInnes era. For the senior team i am not sure why the coach is still experimenting on a daily basis. Experiments should be done in the practice, not on the battle ground.

With these u19 players in place, if we can avoid politics in the selection process, there are bright future ahead with this bunch :)

Brief scores from Day 1.

Tough day for BD lads after losing the toss and being sent in at Headingley, the most swing and seam friendly ground in England. Overcast conditions also made life difficult.

Bangladesh crashed to 99 for 5 at lunch before a partnership of 78 between Enamul Haque (30) and Nazmul Hossain (33) helped us reach 230 not long after tea. Shamsu Rahman was the only batsmen among the runs with a gritty and mature 68 after batting at number 4.

Reckless shots from Aftab Ahmed, Nafees Ahmed and Dhiman Ghosh saw them throw away their wickets after getting small starts.

England replied to be 2 for 95 at stumps with Cook and Henly back in the pavilion. Cook showed his class in the first over smashing Rajib to the mid wicket boundary 3 times. Cook made a total of 45, including 11 boundaries. He was dropped at second slip in the 3rd over of the innings which certainly hurt the Bangladesh cause. The bowlers will have to work well on day 2 to keep England in check.

We will inshallah ... I dont think english will take any substantial lead .. infact .. they will collapse bellow our score .. and our youngster batsmans will cause a huricane of runs (which there seniors can't do) on their favor .. and again with ball they will tear down briton's batting line up ... which will give us an innings and some runs win (Hope it's not too optimistic) :clap:

-->Definitely you must be more detailed than me then. Top order who faild, are
they 16/17? or they playing only 3/4 years? If they are then you got a point.

On the other hand the english boys have been playing for 6/7 yrs as they start off from school cricket then go on to age group level U13s, U14s U15s etc.
--->I think something BIG is missing our players, something basic.
Concentration,attitude,commitment,responsibility, sense all these are not technical
things.
You can not learn these things from playing, if you go for it, it will take lot of time.
If you have experience of attend foreign school or collage, you will understand how they learn those things.
If we can improve these things, we will
see a different picture.

Bd has only started age group cricket in the last 2/3 years.
--> As i mention earlier, I think the technical skill is not the matter here,
since the personality is involve, we can not improve those fields playing some years.
Besids, there is no assurance that we will improve to compete major teams after
playing 6/7 years.

Also if you think Bangladesh Crickters have the same facilities as the English, please think again and come into the real world.
-->As you said, the facilities are not same.
We may never have the same facilities that England have.
But that doesnt mean that we have to wait until we get the sama facilities.
And again, there is no assurance that we will improve to compete major teams after
having the same facilities.

All of these are my openion, you could be right because have the chance to look closer the team then me.

STOP MAKING EXCUSES: We are not children!

reyme, this is the attitude we need to apply.
When people says about Inexperience,
lack of facility, lack of infrastructure and so and so, could be the "home work"
not an excuse any way. Thats the professionalism!
Its very easy to come up with those excuses and everybody can do that.
And we all know that there is no end of it, if we always think that way.
Nothing will be changed after a while and no one will be responsible.
That is the "Bangla professional way".

that was a huge partnership from wright and lawson that had been going on forever - over 100 - until Bangladesh just now mopped up the last 3 wickets on 269. That's a very decent performance, hopefully they can bat better in the second innings and not lose this match.

The U-19 should not ever play our national team. If they do, they will be contaminated. The inconsistant players here, Nafees, Aftab both played with the seniors. These fresh minds under McInnes should be kept away from the losers. About a year or two down the line, we should just sack Bashar & company and introduce these boys as our national team. Actually, the junior boys had already given the seniors some scare before the U-19 WC, if I remember correctly. Once they beat the big boys, it will erode the last bit of confidence the seniors have. Even worse, it will give the juniors a false sense of accomplishment. If you win over a bunch of zeroes, your accomplishment is still zero, no gain.

Billah my friend..you've simply taken the words straight out of my mouth. It could not be said any better than that.

Our seniors have been appaling, their consistancy has been to play inconsistant, we must keep our juniors well nurtured and away from the seniors.
The senior players cannot offer any guidance or tips for them so allow these players to learn themselves.

Day 2 First Test Update

England moved from 95 to 147 before losing Somerset Countyís leading run scorer James Hildreth, who was smartly caught by Dhiman Gosh off the bowling of Nadif Chowdhury. This started an amazing period of play where Nadif and Enamul Haque jnr bowled in tandem for 22 overs. During this period England lost 5 for 10. Nadif bowled a spell of 11 overs 5 wickets for 6 runs, while Enam bowled 7 maidens in 11 overs to ensure pressure was built from both ends.

Luke Wright and Adam Harrison then added a 114 in a magnificent partnership that ensured England just established a first innings lead of 39. The last three wickets fell in the space of 3 overs for 0 runs.

Bangladesh rued 5 missed chances, 2 each by Nafees Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim and 1 to Nafees Ahmed in the slips. It was not until Nadif was moved to first slip that a catch was taken in this region, taking a brilliant catch off a slashed top edge from Luke Wright off the bowling of Enamul Haque. Had Bangladesh held early chances from Alistair Cook and Ravi Bopara, England may have struggled to reach 150.

Bangladesh then returned to the crease and Nafees Iqbal made a positive start to lead BD to 1 for 52 from 10 overs at tea. Nafees Ahmed was out LBW to a good ball from Cusden in the early overs. Nafees Iqbal then threw his wicket away again chasing a wide ball shortly after tea to be caught at second slip. This ended a small partnership of 58 between Nafees and Aftab who had shown great restraint in letting many short balls go by.

Shamsu Rahman then joined Aftab to add 54 before Shamsu was caught at deep cover after being set up. This was unfortunate as Shamsu again had shown maturity and confidence well beyond his years. He is proving a fine example to his more senior team mates.

Dhiman Ghosh who had earlier been taken to hospital to have his tooth replaced and mouth stitched up moved down the order, until the anaesthetic wore off. In his place Mushfiqur Rahim moved up to 5 and was unfortunately LBW to a ball that kept very low. Nadif then joined Aftab to take Bangladesh to 4 for 124 when bad light and rain stopped play.

Bangladesh lead by 85 with 6 wickets in hand and need big innings from Aftab, Nadif and Dhiman in order to apply pressure to the England batsmen on the fourth day wicket.
<hr>

The coach also sent me today's scorecard. I guess I don't need to post it here since we got the complete scorecard from cricinfo (http://plus.cricinfo.com/db/NEW/LIVE/frames/BDESH-U19_ENG-U19_U19T1_28-31JUL2004.html).

I'm kind of disappointed about BD team in Asian Cup as well the last day performance of U-19 team. I used to think that bangladeshi/bengalee didn't have done any thing similar to other nations. It might be in sports or any other field. As a nation we are historically lazy and not very productive. Considering historical perspective, should we expect something productive from BD cricket team?

It is only for the good and also defeat also enables us to analyse our weaknesses and we can focus on them more efficently, whereas winning might have made us complacent and slightly distract us in focusing on areas of improvement.

Nevertheless a solid performance and althought the famous colapse in the 2nd innings similar to the senior sie is there, we still can stop this rot as well with this lads.....

First Test Update

Disappointing start to Day 3 losing 6 for 31 in short time. This set England only 118 for victory, which was not enough to really challenge them.

A positive of the Bangladesh innings was that aside from Nafees, Dhiman and Shamsu Rahman, the remainder of the batsmen were dismissed by good bowling rather than foolish shots. If this can be seen as a positive than there are signs of improvement in relation to shot selection.

Englandís chase began badly when Denly was out bowled by Rajib. Cook and Bopara then batted aggressively and at times luckily but raced to 71 for 1 at lunch. After lunch England moved to 100 before losing three quick wickets and then a fourth shortly later to be 5 down with 18 runs remaining. First innings hero Luke Wright came in and despatched the bowlers aggressively to pass the Bangladesh score.

This proved a disappointing finish to a game where the ball dominated the bat. In total 35 wickets were lost for 743 runs indicating the difficulty in batting. The next two matches at Somerset and Cardiff should prove a little more batsmen friendly and will require some big scores from the Bangladesh batsmen.
