3 day practice match will start on 08/02/04 at Sleaford CC. Possible start time is 10:00 AM GMT. May be the boys will have a chance to rectify their blues.

I love the schedule. They will have another 2 day practice match starting on 08/07/04 against the same opponent before the second test starts on 08/10/04.

Good luck boys.

...wel even the first innings total is the highest by any BD team ever...!
very good sign!

though I got a feeling that these Dev.Of Ex. teams r quite weaker compared to the main U-19 team of England.

lets hope the team dominates the Eng. U-19 from this spirit!!

I am expecting a century or two in that score of 466. This ECB team may be weaker but at least our boys know how to put away the bad balls, and not choke against the minnows. Just think back to the Hong Kong match. Our senior batsmen made mountains out of molehills.These cubs sure score pretty quickly. 466 and having the oppostion down by 8 for 180 odd by tea on second day is quite a convincing performance so far.

Guys what we have to remmeber is that this is only a practice match. The scores so far are indeed fantastic, but we must not fall into the complacency books.

We have had much tougher opponents before, as in the U-19 England team. If we can perform the same type of first innings against them I would be more than happy and even if we were to still lose it would not matter, because we would clearly would have shown improvements.

Good job so far, but really want to see this on the second test as well.:flag::tiger:

August 3, 2004, 02:46 PM
seems like both our national and U-19 teams play superbly in practice matches and fail miserably when it needs in official matches. what use of scoring a mammoth total when they collapse at prime time?

Our senior team did superbly in pratice matches during WI tours, but then failed pathetically in the second test. Again they won 2 practice matches in Asia Cup and then became disarray in the tournament. Same happens with the U-19 team. I'd better reserve all my eulogy for them when they win the 2nd test convincingly.

I know! But from what I have seen the younger generation (aged 15-19) currently seem to be much taller on average. Many of my younger cousins, the new undergrads entering unis, and generally from what I have seen on the streets in Bangladesh, seem a decent (by our standards) 5-9 or so average and many quite taller. Is this because of improved nutrition? I don't see any significant changes in our eating habits as a nation :-/ Anyways, I was hoping some of these "taller" kids would make their way into our sports arena, particularly cricket.

Bangladesh U-19 (466/9 Dec) lead ECB Development of Excellence XI (107/4) by 359 runs at lunch, day 2

Bangladesh Under19 team enjoyed a rare run feast as they amassed 466 for nine before declaring their first innings on the second day of the three-day match against ECB Development of Excellence XI at the Seaford Cricket Club ground on Tuesday.

Back to form middle-order batsman Aftab Ahmed, fresh from his 54 in the second innings of first Test against their English counterparts, hammered a brilliant 111 while most of his colleagues contributed some runs with two half centuries coming from the bats of wicketkeeper Dhiman Ghosh and all-rounder Rubaiyat Huq.

Dhiman made 77 while Rubaiyat was unbeaten on 60 when the declaration came. Shahriar Nafees ( 35) Nafees Iqbal (32), Mushfiqur Rahim (30), Nadif Chowdhury ( 29), Ishraq Sonnet (27), Nazmul Hossain (20) and Nazim Uddin (16) all made splendid efforts to help the team reach such a mammoth total.

Asim Chowdhury was the only Bangladeshi batsman failing to make a double figure. He, however, was not out on 3 batting at number 11.

Facing the daunting task of avoiding the follow on, the hosts were in a precarious position as they gathered only 107 for four at lunch needing another 210 runs to force the visitors’ bat again.

Ishraq Sonnet claimed two wickets for Bangladesh while Nazmul Hossain and Rubaiyat Huq shared the other two scalps.

Bangladesh beat the same side in the first three-day match by six wickets and also in the two limited-over matches before losing to the full-fledged England Under-19 team in the first Test.

Enamul Huq Jr, the skipper of the Bangladesh team, opted to skip the ongoing match and the two vice-captains of the team Shahriar Nafees and Nazmul Hossain are sharing the onus in his absence.

Eng. Dev. will resume on 180-8 after no play was possible after tea on day 2.

If the weather holds out BD will set a target for their opponents to chase.

I think U19 made the right decision to bat instead of enforcing the follow on...the bowlers are doing a fine job. Its the batsmen who need to be up to speed against England U19 come the second test.

Practice match is just what the name suggests. By scoring a mammoth total followed by restricting the opponent well below the follow-on limit, they already showed who's the boss between the two teams. They wouldn't gain anything more by allowing some formalities.

Instead, they opted to concentrate to work on their weaknesses uncovered during the 1st test. That was a smart move by all counts.

They could practice as much as they wanted to in Dhaka. But practicing with newer and unknown yet decent bowlers is always a gain.

Naturally Bangladeshi people are small in height and most of the lads are about 5.1', 5.2' but i guess they have a bit of growing to do.

There are some tall players like Shahadat, Nafees Ahmed, Nazmul. I guess Aftab and Nafis although both are about 5.6', 5.7 in height can make it as a batsmen, lets take Sachin as an exmaple. (similar height).

But Nazim Uddin may struggle as he is quite short. Mushfiq the young kid from Bogra is only 16 yrs old and looks it as well.

Did U19 tiger match has drawn?

observer
August 5, 2004, 06:33 AM
as the name of the match suggests it was a practice match and we treated it as such. We dominated the game so it didn not matter whether we won or not officially. The key thing was to get from the match what we wanted, and that was a few of our batsmen need an extra hit so we batted again, when we could have enforced the follow on and bowled them out again. |It was more important for a couple of guys to have another hit.

We then had a bowl for 2 hours after tea to allow a couple of bowlers to work on a couple of things.

The standard of the opposition may appear weak, but 90% of the players we are playing again have played for England at U17 and U15 level and are now pushing for selection in their U19 side for the winter (so effectively most of them are u18 at the moment)

We are developing some consistency, which is something we need.

Will keep you posted when ever i have email access.

Sports Reporter

Opener Shahriar Nafees Ahmed cracked an unbeaten 116 as the touring Bangladesh Under-19 team warmed up for the second Test with a draw against Development of Excellence XI on Wednesday in a three-day match in which they were always in control.

Having decided against enforcing the follow-on on Day Two, the visitors had some good batting practice in the second innings and declared on 200 for four after tea on the last day with a lead of 342. The home side had struggled to 91 for four by the end at the Sleaford CC ground in Lincolnshire.


The second Test starts on August 10. Bangladesh trail 0-1 having lost the first match by five wickets.


BRIEF SCORES

BANGLADESH U-19: 466 (Aftab Ahmed 111, Dhiman Ghosh 77, Rubaiyat Haque 60 not out) & 200 for four (Shahriar Nafees 116 not out; Nazim Uddin 26)

DEVELOPMENT OF EXCELLENCE XI: 233 (Two wickets each for Israq Sonnet, Rubaiyat, Nazmul Hossain, Ashim Chowdhury) & 91 for four.

I don't think it should matter. As coach said, it was a practice match. Its important that our batsmen got enough time to do their batting. It is obvious we dominated the match. Win or draw doesn't really matter.
I can't buy the theory of an indifference between a win & draw in a practice match. I still believe BD U-19 should have enforced a follow on and then jump for a win. Practice matches are the best fit to uphold our winning habit, so that the team will have more self-confidence when it matters in final matches. When we are in a winning position then why not just go for it? Leaving field with a win after a long day's play is something that really boosts the confidence...whether it is a practice match or not. I request our coach to give more thought in it. Just my two cents.

Zobair
August 5, 2004, 08:35 PM
This is a moot point really....but if I were to take a side here, I would say it was the right decision to get batting practise. Its our batsmen who "failed" against England U19 and they needed to get some big scores to get on with it. I would imagine our U19 team went into this practise match with some goals in mind. In this case,as the coach himself said, it was to get maiinly our batting sorted out. Judging by some of the scores from our top order, I would say the objectives have been met.

PoorFan
August 5, 2004, 09:36 PM
Navarene and Pompous both has the point.
In a condition like this, decision could go either way.
The coach made the decision from his point of view and I respect that.
Besides, he is the responsible one and watching the team very closely.
Personally I wanted to see BD enforce them to follow on, and fight for the win.
We also need to know how to handle a wining situation and achieve a win, as Navarene said.

Earlier coach McInnes sent the following email. We already know about the scores but I'll post it anyway:

Apologies for the lateness of update but have only today been able to get to the local library to access the internet.

BD batted first and made 466 for 9 declared with Aftab Ahmed 111, Dhiman Gosh 67 and Rubaiyat Huq 62 not out the main contributions. The ECB DoE XI were then bowled out for 233 with 2 wickets each to Israq Sonnet, Rubaiyat Huq, Nazmul Hossain and Ashim Chowdhury.

BD batted again and declared at 200 for 4 with Nafees Ahmed Abir making 116 not out. This innings was used to try and givge Nazim Uddin and Nafees Iqbal some time in the middle but both wasted the chance falling for 26 and 6 respcetively. The ECB side finished the day at 91 for 4 with wickets to Rubaiyat Huq, Ashim Chowdhury and Nazmul Hossain.

We now move to Oakham School at Rutland to play a two day game before the second test at Taunton, Somerset.

Does anyone have a few scores from the other games played before the first U19 test match against England. How old is Shamsur Rahim from my calculations he is only 15 is this true?

Also why isn't Talha Jubair playing in these games. He is in the squad but is not getting a game. How quick is he on the cricinfo site it says that he might be able to bowl 90m/h if he puts some bulk on. how quick is he now.

Talha is still recovering and unable to bowl long spells at present. He's making progress.

i think practice matches should be treated like practice matches...whatever the team has done was excellent...they put up a pretty good show and the batters got some practice...

shariar nafees should be in the national side in a couple of years...
