1. Drop nazmul for tareq.
2. Push ash back to no. 5 spot.
3. Tell me about mushfique's injury ;)

August 29, 2004, 06:45 PM
This lineup would work well if we had habibul

JO, Nafis, Habibul, Ash, Rajin, Aftab, Manju, Mashud

just a thought

anyway as for this match, would seem mushfiqur wont play - giving his place to tareq maybe, and we might also see rafique instead of nazmul or chacha, both those 2 shouldnt be in the squad in my opinion.

What happened to Mushfiqur

fwullah
August 29, 2004, 10:43 PM
Mushfique got injured, don't know how serious - he didn't come to bat at the end of the day and also didn't bowl after 2.2 overs.

Zephaniah
August 29, 2004, 10:50 PM
I would bring in Rafique and Tareq dropping Nazmul. But i'll give Nazmul another game in Scotland and/or against USA perhaps. I hope Aftab gets some practice in the middle in this match. Tapash, Tareq, Mushfique and Chacha - it seems like an OK pace-bowling line up to me if they bowl with decipline. Little thin in terms of fire power, but that's our best bet at this moment. I just wondered, why Ash stopped his LB? Ash & Kaps both are capable leggies who can do part-time 5th bowlers job against most of the team if they work on their bowling a bit.

Congrats to Nafis for his 70 ball century. I'm sure he will learn in course of time to transfer his practice match demolition to real match soon.

I hope for a little more convincing win today.

Good thing is, these are only PRACTICE one day (not one day international) matches. I will give everyone a shot to prove themselves and thus play Nazmul and Aftab atleast 1/2 more matches. I guess if I want to keep it that way, Chacha will get another shot for his "vast english experience". Who knows, his slow medium pace may be two hot to handle for the associate sides. :)

PoorFan
August 30, 2004, 12:23 AM
If somebody call it a "luck", we don't have much word to counter it.
Only three of us made double figure, rest of five made only 22 runs against Ireland.
Middle order bats man failed completely before Ireland bowlers.
In that sense except Nafis, we lost the entire match to Ireland.
Hope that will not continue today, and like to see a clear victory.
Good luck to BD.

I disagree with bringing in Tarek in place of Nazmul. Tarek has shown himself to be a mediocre pace bowler who often goes for big runs. Clearly, he doesn't have much potential and should not merit a spot on a quality team. Nazmul might have a much brighter future ahead of him and we should use him as much as possible in this tour to give him a taste of international cricket.

fwullah

Tarek has shown himself to be a mediocre pace bowler who often goes for big runs.


It was also for Tareq Aziz's contribution with the ball that we got to win against Zimbabwe and with his contribution with the bat that we got to draw the test match against West Indies.

Unless Mashrafee/Talha/Shahadat etc. get enough experience and be accurate as well as penetrative, we're always going to have to have someone like Tareq Aziz in the line-up.

fwullah
August 30, 2004, 01:04 AM
if they work on their bowling a bit - Alok has now the chance to work on his bowling now that he's got some time off from International cricket. But Ashraful? I don't know how the part time bowlers cum specialist batsman like Ramnaresh Sarwan, Sherwin Campbell et al. bowl so accurately, if we want Ashraful to go into that stage, we'll need to improve our overall cricket infrastructure.

Have you seen how a debutant number eleven (besides Muralitharan) Sri Lankan batsman can punish the bad balls, no matter what the situation is? This is the result of years of hard work by the Sri Lankan board. This is what our board has to do first.

Fahmida, you gave away enough certificates and took away as much in a day. Wanna save something for morrow?

rafiq
August 30, 2004, 01:46 AM
since this is a practise match, whoever didn't play today should get a chance tomorrow. so I would expect tareq Aziz for the injured Mushfiq, Rafique for Rana and finally Faisal for either a batsman or else Sujon or Tapash ( I would rather they kept all the 5 bastmen from today because they either need the practise or are already in form and the team cannot play without them ).

mahbubH
August 30, 2004, 02:13 AM
Tareque for Mushfiq and Rafique for Chacha/Nazmul. I think 2 spinners would be better choice for today's match.

chinaman
August 30, 2004, 02:19 AM
I'd try out 6 batsmen instead of 5 adding Faisal to the top five, keep Masud and Rana in place and 3 bowlers, Tareq, Nazmul and Rafiq, in the mix.

Tapash would get a rest. Rajin and Ash together would be the fifth bowler.

It would be a spin attack mainly to see out the strength on an anticipated batting pitch.

Feel nervous? Get Mahmud or Tapash instead of Rafiq for a change. We should never go run hungry again.

PoorFan
August 30, 2004, 02:40 AM
We should not change the team a lot, because we didn't do well in first practice.
We can not lose to Ireland giving everyone a chance for practice either.
Besides, we have to get a good practice & result as well, which comes from the team effort,
before we go for champions trophy.
So I think we should bring Tareq and Rafiq in replace of Mushfiq and Mahmud.
If we can win against Ireland in a comfortable way, then we can think about lot of combination.

Wow, that 6.5 rrr was beyond my imagination!
I was not able to follow the game last night, so it was hard for me to realize the situation.
If we had to fumbled because of chasing that high run rate, then you have a point.
if it's not, then we got the same old problem as we usually collapse suddenly and lose the match.

Of course we should give all the credit who deserve for this win.:)

Yeah, not only Ash but most of the batsmen lack abilities to play at this level. The truth is we have failed to produce quality batsmen and that is the main reason why we can't win.

August 30, 2004, 06:55 AM
Someone has blown it guys. I've been following events as a Scottish cricket supporter and contacted the site when I saw the problems with the initial comments on the live pages about Bangladesh cricket. They have let me know that the page was hacked into and that those and the subsequent comments have meant that the live coverage provided yesterday will not happen today.

The service was provided without anticipating that a cricket follower would hack into it. Associate countries operate on a shoestring by the way. So those that subsequently hacked in to comment on previous comments have not helped!

Since I believe this mechanism would have been the same one that might have been used for the Scotland games as well I presume that similar live coverage of those games may not happen either.

Trueblue . Pre-emptive action? I strongly condemn the bloody hacker. But your comment is bit of a laugh regarding no live broadcast of Scottish games. I think Irish site didn't have any plan to cover the match live in the first place.

The service was provided without anticipating that a cricket follower would hack into it. Associate countries operate on a shoestring by the way. So those that subsequently hacked in to comments on previous comments HAVE NOT HELPED!

Since I believe this mechanism would have been the same one that MIGHT have been used for the Scotland games as well I presume that similar live coverage of those games may not happen either.

Why dont you give us update here!

i disagree. a web site that put such comments about us ......... i don't care they are being hacked or whatever. u are talking about respect when asking not to hack. but they need to learn to respect first before they can get one.

Trueblue
August 30, 2004, 07:10 AM
I agree there was an issue with news about the start of play. However I repeat the associate countries operate on a shoestring. You are not deaing with results from cricinfo. In fact live results like this are a very recent innovation in an effort to keep people up to date and will doubtless involve some volunteer who would be happier watching the game themselves. So there is a learning process about informing people of delays etc. Nevertheless there needs to be some understanding of the background.

There will have been some hard lessons learnt and little time to resolve things before the next game. Which is a blow to me since I wanted to follow the Scotland Bangladesh game live myself.

Guys, I'm just trying to let you know what has happened to the coverage.

I'm sure the initial comment about the Bangladesh team must have come as a result of the page being hacked. So it did not come from the Irish who I'm certain are delighted to be playing you.

As for 'having a laugh' the Ireland and Scotland sites are run together. So what affects one affects the other. Just like the Irish the Scots will definitely not want any danger of hacked comments being taken as official and upsetting people.

About giving the score for today. Why should I know? I'm in front of a computer like you not at the game.

As the person who has been doing the live scoring for the Ireland v Bangladesh matches, I must first apologise for the offensive remarks that appeared on the score page. However, as has become evident to everybody on this forum, the live update section was hacked into by some malicious person and I was certainly not the author of those remarks. As a result of their action I have decide not to supply a regularly-updated scorecard for today's match.
I appreciate that there are insecurities associate with the provision of the service - however, hacking has never been a problem in the past (we have used it for over 2 years without such problems) and we did not envisage such behaviour on anybody's part. Anyhow, we will have set about providing a secure service in the future - until that time CricketIreland will not be providing further live coverage.
My apologies to all those who are going to be inconvenienced today and in the near future.

Interpol? Joking about it now doesn't really help. The live scores could have been back up again in some form, after the first hacker's comments were taken out, if it had not been for the over-zealous reactions of some Bangladeshi people (one person?) who compounded the problem. Eager to defend any perceived slight at the nation without waiting to verify any facts? If this guy could have hacked into their site to post follow up comments, he should have had the brains to realize the first comments were by hackers, too.

I posted this while pompous was making his post - I agree.

Can we get the scorecard at some point please? Ireland is going to overhaul this total quite easily unless there is something in the wicket for our bowlers. This is going to suck all the way around it seems, hopefully I am wrong.

To tell you the truth, our spinners have their work cut-out - if the pitch is the same as yesterday, then our seamers will have a tough job ahead of them. Also, too many bad balls, and we're done for, even by the spinners.

Like Bangladesh they have proper cricket infrastructure, even if not a strong one. It seems cricket also generates interest among Irish public, unlike USA or UAE for that matter.

As for BD score, It's pilot again who saved our blushes. he's really going through a purplepatch starting from his Test hundred in WI. my quick response to the situation is, push him up to no. 3 spot with JO and Nafis opening. Ash should be back to no.5.

On second thought, If Dave wants to keep the top order batting same then he should push Pilot up to no.5 and then followed by Aftab or Faisal. What happened to this Aftab dude? I was rooting for him to play well in England!!!

I want to see what Aftab is doing. Nafis did very good yesterday. He got his 100 (70 balls) (10X4) and (3X6), what a great figure!!

On second thought, If Dave wants to keep the top order batting same then he should push Pilot up to no.5 and then followed by Aftab or Faisal. What happened to this Aftab dude? I was rooting for him to play well in England!!!

Nice to see Mashud and Rafiq back in business. 230 is not a bad score.
Lets see how our bowler do. Wish another win.

Ireland have to score 231 from 50 overs at a run rate of 4.6

230 isnt a bad total....they can still win this match with this total only if thier bowling is upto standard. but i m still worried bout their batting..they crossed 200 only coz of their lower order...wen will this stop?..only coz nafis iqbal dint score a 100..they were in such a bad position as 116/6. well..its very frustratin...wonder wen they will improve

Don't forget, our fielding has to be right on the top, too.

Another random thoughts. Some posters say Nafis only do good in practice matches, even though he only played 2 ODI's - not enough to judge a budding talent. But what about so-called established player like Rajin saleh? He scores 20's or 30s mostly , practice matches or real matches alike, even against lesser opponents? I do value his innings yesterday but why this all 20s and 30s?

Hi, it's my first post in the forum, although I follows your comments regularly. I really appreciate and feel proud that we, the BD fans are the most passionate and anlystic fans in the world.

As a random thought, what I believe is that we should not make a big thing out of a practice match like this. I know there're a lot of so called analysts (I call them SHARKS) desperately wanting to see BD as a sitting duck. They always forget that BD is in a learning curve and our prime objective in this type of practice match should be to improvise as much as possible e.g. trying new players, new strategies and so on. I know we'd loose many things if we loose a mathc like this, but we should think on the other side, too e.g. missing the opportunity to give exposures to newer faces to have a solid foundation at the end. Our prime focus should be establishing ourselves in the elite frame. If nothing happens when Zim or WI loses to Ireland, or Pak loses a whole series against Holland, then why we should care about beating them? It is good and wanted though to beat teams like Ireland, but it must not be a MUST. It's creating an unwanted pressure to our inexperienced players to many of whom this's the first experience in English condition. I do want to win with BD, but in the process I don't want to forget to build a team that'd beat any country in the world in next 5 years or so. Just to cool you guys and to delineate what may happen in practice mathes like this........PAK 122/6 (22.4 overs) when rain intervened against Holland. What's the big issue here?

We all know and believe that we've potential match winners in Ashraful, Nafis and Aftab. And when Mashrafee comes back along with Sharif and Talha..........SHARKS would swallow themselves for sure. At the moment BD needs our support in the midst of their perils. Please keep up your support. I thank you all.......................

Unfortunately all are true.

Some people can only score 20's and 30's (i.e. Saleh). We have had enough of those 20/30 scoring players in the past and look where that have taken us. Even against an opponent like Ireland we are struggling. If we really want to win, we need players who can score 50's and 100's, after all that's what a batsman should do. Yeah, a lot of people are critical of Nafis/ Aftab. But you are missing the point, even if Nafis fails in a few matches- he will score a hundred now and then. And when he scores a hundred, we have a chance to win. Unfortunately I can't see any batsman in the team except Nafis (and maybe Aftab) who can score a century. Yes, think about this- we don't have any batter who can score a hundred and we still think of winning matches against teams like India/ Australia? While those teams have 3/4 front line batsmen who can play a big innings any time. No- these 20/30 scoring players will not do. We need something else.

Welcome on board, Tansir. Wie geht's dir? ;)

Even though I do not agree 100% of your thoughts, I do appreciate your enthusiastic first post on this forum of die hard BD fans. Why dont you start a new thread with the same content so that we might join the discussion, since this thread is on way too fast to make your post sink in other quick posts?

59/2 after 13 overs means they are on the track. RR about 4 and has 8 wickets left.
