Tigers play first official practice match today

06/09/2004

The Bangladesh cricket team will play their first official practice match before the ICC Champions Trophy against the United States at Embercourt today.
Bangladesh, who have already played four practice matches – two each against Ireland and Scotland – will play another official practice match against Yorkshire Eleven at the end of this week.
The United States comprising players from West Indies, Pakistan and other nations will not be a pushover side.
Ten of their players out of 14 played first class cricket in Pakistan and West
Indies.
Only West Indies-born Richard Staple and Steve Massiah and Pakistani Rashid Zia and Imran Awan did not play any first class cricket.
Leon Romero is the only player in the squad who was born in the USA but played first class cricket in the West Indies.
The former West Indian Test cricketer Clayton Lambert is also in the squad at the age of 42 years.
Lambert had a Test debut against England in 1991 at the Oval and represented West Indies in five Tests and 11 one-dayers till 1998.

USA squad: Richard Staple, Nasir Javed, Charles Reid, Zamin Amin, Howard Johnson, Aijaz Ali, Mark Johnson, Leon Romero, Naseer Islam, Rohan Alexander, Rashid Zia, Steve Massiah, Clayton Lambert and Imran Awan.

As if the USA weren't already faced with the daunting prospect of playing one-day internationals against Australia and New Zealand, their preparations for the ICC Champions Trophy have been hampered by Tony Reid, their 42-year-old allrounder, going missing.

With the remainder of the squad in London, a report in today's Guardian revealed that Reid is stranded in Florida as Hurricane Frances wends its way across the state. With much of the area's infrastructure ravaged by the hurricane, there are serious doubts as to whether Reid will make it to the UK in time for Friday's first game against New Zealand at The Oval.


"Three of us left Florida just in time and we drove eight hours to Atlanta to catch a plane to England, but Tony had just returned from Jamaica and wasn't prepared," Faoud Bacchus, the USA coach, told The Guardian . "He won't get out. The airports are still closed, phone lines are down, there might be no electricity and even if you could drive a car, you will struggle to get some gas. He will have to sit tight for at least another 36 hours. We're not confident that he will be here by the weekend."

33 after 10 overs against USA.. I would have preferred at least 60/70 runs even if it meant the loss of 1 or 2 wickets. Come on it's USA bowling we are facing.

That's a bad sign............

If we can't hammer these guys in the first 15 overs than no chance against SA or WI.

Any ideas on weather forecats and pitch conditions? I'm happy with 33 in 10 overs if its overcast and the pitch is damp. But with good weather and a good pitch, this would be a sub par score for a test team in the opening overs.

James90
September 6, 2004, 05:21 AM
Don't jump to conclusions, we don't know who their opening bowlers are or about the pitch...0-33 could be an awesome score

I'd be ok if we can post more than 250 runs irrespective of the outcome. I just love to see steady improvements in batting.

We're getting conflicting reports here. Chinaman said the score was 101/1 after 24 overs. The above score as posted does not make any sense. 73/24 does NOT equal 4.20

scoring 100 runs in 24 overs against a very weak side is not much impressive, it should be like that 150/1, etc. the players should prepare for any situation and should have the capacity to play accordingly the situation demands. then only they can develop their maturity and also the professional approah. nevermind losses, but play in a professional way. if you loss continous 10 games, but put up a strong fight there, nobody is going to count that losses. so try to play in positive and professional way always, irrespective of results

totally agree with you. the priority of bangladesh team is to score runs consistenly.. 250+ in 3/4 contious games should boost the confidence of the players definitely

Most of the time you do not need to score 150 in 24 overs to score 250+ in 50 overs.

i mean to say , scoring 150 runs in 24 overs against a very weaker side is much impressive than 101/1 in 24 overs

250 is always a respectable score

Actually about the same. But when BD were out her a couple of years ago i was going for them because they were huge under dogs and i thought id just stir up my friends by going for bangladesh. Unfortunately they didnt win but they played excelently against a then formidable Australia. Australia is getting to old as Nasser Hussain has said and i am looking forward to Bangladesh beating us in the next series. But then Australia can beat the rest of the teams.

At last the batsmen are performing well:)!
Frankly speaking, I think we had a lot of positives in the last Scottland match. For the first time in this tour, the top-order clicked. Doesn't matter we lost- it was a good game. Scottland played well so they deserved to win! We don't have to be so sentimental all the times. Give the Scotts some credit!
In today's match our batsmen have performed even better. I say 285/ 5 is a very good score.
Before this trip, our main problem was poor batting by the top-order, looks like we have found a remedy for that. Our bowling is good, never mind the Scottland match. If our batters can post 250+ we will always have a chance against any team.

Mate this makes my day thank you at least for dreaming. i/We can't even dream of beating Aussies....

285/5 i would say very good considering for English condition and what i've hard about usa player that they might be better than WI so i am very very happy sp from 33/10,101/24 to 185/5.... :fire: :fanflag:

it is really encouraging performance from BD so far in this tour:

Javed is doing the real anchor role
Ashrful scored 60+
Nafees scored 100 & 40
Rajin scored 21* and 36 (remember the situations)
Aftab - 80
Faisal - 50+
Pilot - 51*
Rafique -42

all are looking in good form
hope they can carry the same to big game

dont mind the losses, put-up good performance ,, that is enough at the moment

the only worry is Rana... hope he can

i would also go for bd beating aus in the next series(if its after 5+ years). the aussie team is getting old and they have no future. their u-19s arent good and they were thrashed 3-0 by ind u-19s, got crushed by zim u-19s, lost to ire u-19s and in the plate final, lost to bd u-19s by 8 runs.

You probably don't know but usa already has beaten all those countires that you mentioned and qualified for this tounament. And as i have said earlier usa probably better than WI. Most of the players play at WI league and the usa league also i think better than BD league in terms of compitions between teams

But we should still beat them soundly as we r a test playing nation and have more exp then them but that doen't mean this is a team that can't bowl or bat... and again i think 185 is a very good score.

It is simple to realise USA has beaten Canada, otherwise they (Canada) would have been here insead of the USA. Please don't forget Kenya beat SL, ZIM (not to mention BD) in the last WC. Does it mean Kenya is a better team than SL or even Zim. USA might have beaten Canada once, it does not mean they are a better team than Canada, Netherlands or Namibia.

I wanted to point out that the game might not be that easy for BD as you were suggesting earlier thats all and this usa team might be better than the canadian team which beat bd :(. But i believe BD has strength to beat canada and usa too.

I don't understand why WI is such an easy target for some folks. NO, USA IS NOT BETTER than WI and as far as US league competition being better than BD league - where do you even come up with that info ? I can prolly make an arguement that Bangladesh league is more competitive than the Nigerian (or the Scottish) league in soccer but in reality Nigeria/Scotland amaderke goon e goon e 10-12 goal debe.

Yes, WI have a record of doing bad against minnows but it's not because they are bad, Do you have any idea about the quality of some of the West Indies players ?

Hi everybody! I have just joined this forum as a member. I used to view this postings as an outsider, but I felt to join the forum where everybody supports our bd team, loves to see bangladesh to win, shares the good times and bad ones. I am like one of you, who believes that we are going to win anytime despite our records.

Wish all of you a happy session and end up this match with a fantastic win.

Well the info is not made up if you take interest in usa league there many websites that give you the results and stuff..

One thing i have to clear though. I am not saying they better than WI player or team... Its just that they might have more team work than them... And they don't have exp of playing int cricket too.

Agree with tehsin. I am not undermining USA. But we need to be realistic. 285/5 against USA equates to 255/7 (yes! it should be good, if we score 255/7 we can win) against kenya, 235/8 agianst Zim (against the team leadby Taibu), 220/10 against WI. It does not look too bad. If we can manage 220/10 aginst WI, we can salvage some pride. However, we should no langer play for pride (and what pride are we taking about?). It is time for us to start wining at least 1 in 10 matches. It is not a big us after all we have bating sensations etc.

I thought we made 285. They need a lot more runs than 102 :)

Here is the link with the results of the recent U.S ODs.

http://www.uscricket.com/scores.asp

To my assessment, they are much formidable than the Scots and the Irish.The team is a collection of WI and Sub-continent cricketers. An immigrant team from an immigrant country.

I am surprised to see that USA has assembled a team of "professionals", 10 out 11 being experienced in playing first class cricket. Not too long ago I was told that the team was full of weekend cricketers/amateurs, mostly immigrants!

Ok, I made a mistake (I guess I'm still on to the defeat against Scotland)

157-285 = 128 runs needed by US from 54 balls, that is, if our bowlers don't give away wides, no balls and thus extra deliveries in the process of bowling the last few overs.

And, can you be certain that our bowlers will not give away more than 54 runs in 54 balls? I can't.

I have seen Clayton Lambert play in Dhaka stadium for the WI. He is the older version of Afridi and Ricardo Powell. I guess they have more players like him in the side who played top level cricket.

Look at the big picture - our top order has been firing reasonably consistently. We never do that - be it against WI, Australia or Hatirpool 2nd 11. This is the kind of confidence building outing that our batsmen needed.

i'm interested to know (when the full scorecard becomes available) how many balls rajin spent to score that 73*. well we've already labeled him as:

*slow scorer.
* mr. 30s.

well, 73 is more than double of 30. about the first label, we need the score card to see.

oi din amader durbhago silo. tai scotland er sathe here gesi - more like we were being complascent.

If we lose today from this position (177/7 after 43 overs and 286 to win) - we won't be able to call it even that (complascent and all).

Not a bad score by USA. Great Job USA. 215 in 50 overs w/o being allout is a great achievement. :clap:

Congrats to BD for a good convincing win. Good job by the top orders. Now if we can take this to the ICC cup, I will be very happy. :fanflag::clap::fanflag:

even though i think its rajin's captency that lost us the match against scotland, its good to see that pressure bought his form back. (if he used few other bowlers and do some experiments, we might have win against scotand, but that something he can learn with time). hope this scoring habit of our top order wil continue.

Last 7 overs cost 38 runs and they lost one wicket. Not too convincing.

If an Associate team can take 10 runs off an over in the last 10 overs with 6 wickets down, then how many runs can a test playing team take off our bowling in the last 10 overs? 15-20 runs?
