View Full Version : Good Day Overall

If we take the first day out, WI scored 282 for 5 on the second day. Thats actually a pretty good performance by BD. If this was the first day's play, we would be pretty happy right now, posting words of praise. Our shambolic performance on Day 1 sort of makes Day 2 look bad as well, but I wanted to point out that we should all feel pretty happy with our performance last night.

If we can get a couple of early wickets on Day 3 like we did on Day 2, the tail will be exposed and we can bowl WI out either side of lunch.

And, if we can get them all out by lunch, we can manage another 3-day test performence by being all out right after tea break.

otherwise it is a chore to watch these games trudge along from one awful day to the next. sham, your observation is right, as a single day it wasn't bad. i don't know why the skipper bowls talha and tapash with the old ball before taking a new ball in the 100+overs. soon after, we got a wicket. perhaps it could have been 285 for 6 or 7? also, are they trying to kill moni - couldn't naimur, alok, ashraful have bowled some of those spin overs. when a batsman faces the same bowler for 25 overs straight, are there any surprises left.

Daily Star carried an article on poor selection today and hit all the points other than the missing 3rd pacer/overload of spin. They should do a critical analysis of pilot's on the field strategies and help this guy out.
