good going. does anyone know the age of shamshu rahman? he is quite young, isn't he? wish he played in the last test. We have taken seven specialist batsmen this time around, including Dhiman, who bats at the top or middle of the order. Dhiman is a genuine stroke maker...keep it goin tigers!

I wonder if the 2 teams have agreed to some sort of deal to get a result of out this match. I would hate this to end in a tame draw.

As I write Our U19 is soon going to take the 1st first innings lead in this series

2nd was 30 and 3rd was 35 I think.

Rubu

yea, thats RAW. how what that has to do with chouka? its a word vastly used for four in my back home (sirajganj) mostly by illitarate people.

Zobair
August 19, 2004, 11:47 AM
the second wicket partnership (between Aftab and Nafis) was worth 30...the third wicket partnership was 33 runs.

Sakin
August 19, 2004, 11:47 AM
i feel we should declare by the end of today watever the score there is only one day of play and half a day is not enough to get them all out
plus we still have 1 more inning. That is ofcourse bangladesh get lead here.

Nafis needs to turn these 50s into big hundreds. I would hate him to become on of those 30s and 40s players...we have lots of those already.

There is only one day left. A 200 run lead will probably kill this game. I expect Our U19 to declare with a 100 run lead. McInnes and the boys will go for the win. We need to instill the winning attitude in our young guns...positive confident attitude...not negative ones!

Agreed! We should really dish it out in the first 20 overs. Get around a 130-150 run lead and put England U19 in. A result is still possible. But it depends on well we bat/how the English bowlers fare tomorrow morning. Right now chances are 98% draw.

Good morning guys, good to see BD batting with conviction, though in a regular match I'd really appreciate their commitment, but in this match we need something more, if they have any plan to win this match they should go for the kill.

I think the target should be scoring another 30 runs in the next 6 overs, have a lead of 120 and then see if England is upto it. Because if we declare to late then Eng. will try to bat out the whole session, confusing the batsmen whether to stay or play their shots should work in our favor.

BD lower order batsman wasted last 10 over for 15 runs. There was still 70 over left. BD could declare at 290. Then they could try to get Englang all out by 50 or 60 over. Second inning is always harder for batsman then 1st inning.
Then Nafis, Aftab, shamsur would have a chance to crack it!!

it's hard to tell what could've happend, not to discredit our cubs, but may be Eng. u-19 wasn't trying hard enough as there's a little posibilities of getting a result out of this.

if you follow the test series, you'll see "dead rubber matches" often go to the side that already lost the series, some times winning team lose their temperment and become complacent and lose the last match, unless winning team is hugely superior to their opponent.

I am pretty sure that he does. Otherwise he wouldnt have gotten the improvements that we have seen!

Keep in mind that sitting in front of our computers hundreds of miles away, we arent exactly in a great situation to make decisions about the game. Maybe our batsmen are trying to hit, but the fielding has been sharp. OR maybe Coach just wants to amke sure we get the mental satisfaction of making 350 . Who knows....

Anyhow, I think this match has gone pretty well despite the rain. I also wish that the cubs were taking things a bit more aggressively, but I wont mind a draw after looking at our current batting card. Batting confidence is a big deal!

having just gone into tea with only 40 overs played for the day, it seems more time was lost to rain this morning - can anyone here who was following the match confirm that? Since that is probably what happened, there aren't enough overs left in the day (another 2 hours - 30 overs). So at some point the team realized they didn't have enough time to bowl England out. I guess they could have even declared with a small lead eg 50 runs. But some of you who are wondering why the team isn't scoring faster with 70 overs left in the day (earlier) haven't done your math.

there aren't less overs on the 4th day. In fact they would have added a half hour at least to make up for lost time. But the fact is it has rained every day since the first. With the rain delay this morning the match was already over. The Coach can confirm that in his post match comments.

But fans here sometimes don't know what they are talking about when there are posts that say "we should hit 100 runs in the first hour and take a big lead", "our cubs don't know how to hit", "they just wasted 10 overs for 15 runs" etc. They are facing quality bowling after all. I would have liked to see a faster run rate today as well, but some of the comments on this board are just dense.

I mean in a relaxed game like this we should expect to see 100s. If it is really excellent bowling from opponent then it is ok. Even then there should be some one has to take the responsibility to get big score.

Yes Rafiq, rain played its innings faithfully even in this morning. The fate of this games was writen in stones much earlier than many of our fans thought. I think it was wise to have some batting practice instead of going wild with declaration. A huge lead is a big moral boast as it distinctly shows who's running the show.

It plays to demoralise and frustrate the Britons ahead of the ODI series. There is no other way you can buy so much positives out of this unfortunate situation.

And, if I may add, rain always helps the losing side :)

OK! now I understand why BD is doing batting practice. I was counting the overs BD batted and making my comments based on the over calculation. Rain delay would lag the over to time ratio. That would invalidad the winning argument.

Well done cubs! I agree with rafiq bhai here. Once we have 30 odd overs lost due to rain in the 4th day there was literally no chance of winning this match. Besides since the cubs haven't had a long innings in the whole of the three test series this was a good opportunity to use the extended batting time in the middle as much as possible and score as many runs as possible, and make a statement ahed of the ODI series.

A couple of wickets or 3 in the English second innings will really make it our day, and our match!

August 20, 2004, 05:19 PM
The 3rd test finished in a draw as was destined to be the case after losing more than two full days to rain. There was the possibility of trying to set up a match today but the additional value of some confidence building time in the middle for our middle order prior to the one day series was more important to us given that we had already lost the test series.

We set our selves a target once the rain had intervened not to lose a single hour of play. By this I mean we break each day down in to 6 by 1 hour blocks and we aim to win each hour. For example if you are 2 for 100 at lunch that would be considered a shared or equal session, if we were 100 for 1 that would be a win to us if batting, if we were 100 for 3 that would be a loss.

Credit to the players during this match, where rain ruined our chances of a win, but we maintained our effort to not lose a single hour of play, we equalled two, and won the rest. This is an important learning process for the players to ensure they are able to play the last ball of the day with the same intensity as the first ball.

We finished up being bowled out for 346 today with Nafees Iqbal 56, Shamsu Rahman 34, Nazim Uddin 65, Nadif 37, Dhiman 48 and Mushfiqur Rahim remaining 36 not out. Credit again to Ashim Chowdhury who batted for nearly an hour for his 10 runs, but created a partnership of 40 with Mushfiqur.

England then batted a second time and were 35 for 1 at stumps with Rubaiyat Huq picking up Joe Denly for 7. Denly was struck on the forearm by a Rajib bouncer in the first over of the innings.

I have attached some interesting statistics from the test series indicating the runs scored by the top 7 batsmen from each team across the series. I, along with others have been critical of our batsmen at times, but when compared to the England top order, James Hildreth’s double hundred excluded, the Bangladesh team equalled or out performed their counterparts.

Outstanding contributions were provided by Shamsu Rahman, Aftab Ahmed and Mushfiqur Rahim. Nazim Uddin is finally starting to show some form and batted very well today. Hopefully he can take this form in to the one day games. A disappointing aspect is the openers who despite strong lead up form in practice matches, failed to really achieve in the Test matches when it counted.

This statistics indicate that batting may not have been as easy as we think it should be. Although the English lads played some equally foolish shots to through their wickets away. So we are not the only country who do that, maybe the English players learn quicker as they get older though.
