Another knockout or a close finish ? Which will it be ? Couple of changes made to the team but it still remains a very young, very vulnarable side with everything at stake. If they perform, they can avoid further chops from the team ad maybe silence the critics for once. If they don't, it will become another of those forgotten encounters and the fans will put this behind them and ok forward to the next series.

Let's talk about the second test in this thread. The match will start in about 19 hours or so but we have so much to discuss.

I'll start off with this news from theDailystar.net. If this is true and we do win the toss, what are the odds that batsmen will apply some common sense and bat deep into lunch/tea of the second day and take the match to NZ ? I'll be an optimist and say that that's exactly what they will do. Here's the report:

Toss vital for 2nd Test
Cu Correspondent

Bangladesh certainly had missed a golden opportunity to put pressure on New Zealand despite winning a good toss in the first Test in Dhaka last week. But the Tigers might get a second chance to make a turnaround here at the MA Aziz Stadium provided that skipper Khaled Mashud calls the coin correctly on Tuesday and his top-order for a change put up a decent total on the board.
"The team that wins the toss and chooses to bat first might establish control over match as the first two days will promise a lot of runs," observed Khokon, the curator of MA Aziz Stadium, ahead of the second Test starting on October 26.

"Even the pace bowlers would not be able to get any assistance during this time. The wicket will only take a little turn on the third day while the fourth and fifth day will definitely belong to the bowlers," said Khokon adding that this wicket would be similar in nature like the one in Dhaka.

"Maybe the only difference will a slight change in bounce," said the curator.

Bangladesh suffered an embarrassing innings and 99-run defeat in the first Test against the Black Caps. The match turned into a no-contest after Dav Whatmore's boys lost three wickets on the first morning and eventually were bowled out for 177. But observes feel that had the batters applied themselves then a score of 250 to 300 was possible. It would have made the game interesting because Stephen Fleming's side would have had to bat on the third and fourth day in difficult conditions.

Meanwhile, the Tigers spent four hours in the nets at the country's second Test venue.

As the players trained all eyes however were on two local boys of the port city -- Nafees Iqbal and Aftab Ahmed.


Nafees, who narrowly missed a half-century on debut in the second innings of the Dhaka Test, said that he was keen to make up for the mistake.

"I know this wicket better than anybody else and I want to leave my mark in front of fans here," said the 20-year-old opener.


Another Chittagong boy Aftab, who got his first Test call-up, said that he was excited at prospect of playing on the big stage provided he is in the final eleven.

"I have been included in the squad and if given a chance to play I'll try to cement my place," said Aftab, who got the nod after Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar was forced to withdraw from the 13-member squad due to a thumb injury.

Accidentally ( if our luck is in favor ) we may able to get some runs in first innings, say around 300.
And the second innings? we all know what will happen,
another disaster as usual and the match will over within 4th day.
So the result may come as a defeat but not with innings. BD officials has nothing to say,
but "we did better than first test"
because we avoided innings defeat which will boost our players morals in coming series and so and so ( as usual ).
Finally as a fan we will focus on coming series after bashing someone or our fate as usual too.
That's why we call ourselves as fan and we have nowhere to go
and live with broken dreams for ever. ( I don't know how long ).
As a matter of fact, I call myself PoorFan as a nickname,
because we all the fans here are so desperate to see some improvement,
but had to see destruction of the team over and over.
I thought I will be able to change my name in near future when I register here 4 months ago, but I was so wrong.
Now it seems like, I will never be able to do that forever, even though some says 10 or 20 years it may take.
However, I am not giving up my hope yet and will stick to BD as a fan.
Besides, once I started as PoorFan, like to see the end, how long have to remain as a real poor fan.
So again as a fan, accidentally we may finish the match close or even more! who knows?

I like your repetition Shehwar. But I would also like to see Rajin with a 50 and maybe even a 100. he deserves it and is good enough to do it. Just needs patience. Take 2 days to do it the fans wont care as long as we make runs.

Shehwar
October 25, 2004, 06:39 AM
Thanx bourny3...Even though the repetition was a silly mistake..But i'll take it....Yeah...I completely agree with you..I'm a great fan of Rajin.....I have been ever since that series against Pakistan.....He has the strength, stamina & the technique to fight it out in the middle....I just feel he needs one big innings which will get him going.....Lets hope for the best..take care mate...

Rafique and Haque Jr What a combo to at least make the 2nd test a competitive one. once again i hope the batsmen bat sensibly, man are they getting on my nerves, never has the batting clicked apart from the two occasions we scored 400+.

with no sarkar who will open? omar & ash??

PS: Leave off Rajin!! he will show the bangla spirit

Akash Chopra is also known for his unbeleivably slow scoring rate.

October 25, 2004, 07:36 AM
fy288 I think that Omar and Nafis will open. Hopefully Nafis will make a 50 like he missed out on in the 2nd innings of the first test.

i was watching the last match live. the recovery from 5/3 to 105/3 is a marvellous one. both rajin and ashraful played very sensible. their concentration, shot selection, determination..... yeah, very admirable. but, they seems to lost their concentration suddenly when they crossed 100 runs partnership. it was clearly readable such a message from their body language that we did our part, so now can relax. i had some innerfeeling that time that they will get out soon and it happened soon. that kind of feeling not generated from any anticipation/fear or something like that, but i dont know it developed seeing the way that they lost their rhythem.
and i would like to say that was the second turning point of the match, after that ridiculous score of 5/3.

the match came again in the hand of bd, but maccullm did extra ordinary to take away the match again. lot of missed opportunities and the long stay of maccullam again proved pilot's thinking was wrong. failure of seam bowlers and pilot's hesitation to depend on part time bowlers like rajin, ashraful, kapali and why not hannan? captain supposed to take more risk, if the game is slipping-out of the hand.

then the unfortunate dismissal of rajin saleh in the second innings. tv replay clearly showed he was not out. unfortunate continues..... nafee's runout... i repeat (already pointed-out in many threads) nafees should develope his maturity level little more. there was no need to hurry for a second run, when he was in 49 and importantly the team is in trouble and there was lot lot of time left in the match.

bd should think more on those points and importantly should try to take maximum cathces. catches win the matches. im still optimistic that if the things click in order, bd will create history. they lack something, but just one victory put them on top and they would be real tigers thenafter.

I don't expect the second test to be competitive at all, Bangladesh usually performs worse in Chittagong than they do in Dhaka (no stats, sorry, if someone can statistically prove me wrong I will stand corrected, this is just my perception). Why do they perform worse in chittagong ? These players hardly play any cricket there anymore other than the occasional test/odi. The chittagong wicket is slower and lower. Vettori has a shot at a 10-fer.

That wrongfully given out just prevented any scope to expose his chopra-itis syndrom, cuz he was way behind being in forties, and I don't think H_fan was mentioning about the 2nd innings.

we desperately need a score of 300 even it takes 200 overs to get it...our batsmen should just friggin learn to wage a war of attrition...in particular i'm talking to nafees. lets say our batting order is as follows:

javed (30 runs)
nafees (50)
aftab (20)
rajin (45)
ash (75)
rana (30)
mushfiq (25)
mashud (20)
rafique (25)
tapash (10)
enamul jr. (5)
Extras (15)

that brings us to a total of 350 runs...each of the players are capable of those numbers. however if the top order clicks they will get at least that many runs about. the tail, rafique on down will do one of two things in all likelyhood: score less than projected or more. if they score 30 runs less, we still have score of 320.

the next most important thing is not to let any NZ players settle at the crease...we need to take regular wickets. 139-5 should yield a max of 220 all out. then we need to hit for at least 250 in the second innings...the classic ingredients for a drawn test.

my fellow sufferers of Bangladesh cricket, it is now 9.45 Monday evening in London, and already my heart is beating faster than usual and as always, like all of you (well maybe not ALL, but most of you) against all logic and common sense, against all the odds, refusing to aknowledge what my head is saying and only listening to my heart, i am expecting the unexepected and hoping and praying for that maiden test win.
PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE can we have a win.
As there is no tv coverage available here, i will be going to sleep and hoping to wake up around 7/8 am tomorow morning to see that my beloved Bangladesh are in a real strong position.
Before leaving this forum for 2night, i would like to say...
HE ALLAH PAK PORVODIKHAR, THUMI AMRA GHARIB BANGALIDHERE DOYA KORO EBONG AMADHER BATSMEN DER HATHE SHOKTHI DOW, ODHER KE BHUDDI DOW, GIAN DOW, ORA JENO SILLY SHOTS NA KHELE.
Fellow suferrers, please join me in this prayer if you wish as i do not feel that we will get a win without any divine intervention.

All of us, the BD fans are worried about our batting performance. As it appears from the media, we can find the following main reasons of failure as stated by our opponent players:
1. Lack of patience. (Both Ashraf and Nafees have confessed for not being patient as the reason for their out)
2. Being overawed by the top international teams.
Some NZ players have told that there is not much defect in our batting technique except wrong selection of the ball.
That means if our boys can be patient while batting, they are sure to do better in any test including today's.
The second important thing is; they should not get scared by someone (like Vettori), as they did earlier against Danesh Kaneria.
I would like to see our batters be a little aggressive against the spin so that they will not try to so many "silly fielders" and knockout our batters psychologically.

Bangladesh crciket team has two lagging from other cricket nation,

1. Lack of strike bowlers, I mean we have only rafique but other countries have 3 to 4 strike bowler who have capability to strike.

2. Out batsman are not capable to take singles. Almost all batsman try to stroke for 4 .

If we overcome this two obstacles then we can win test in nearfuture.

The list of probable players in the Cricinfo report includes 3 spinners Rafique-Rana-Enamul, and only one pacer Tapash. Are we going to use a spinner as an openning bowler? Or Criconfo listed Alok instead of Mushfiq Babu?
I am praying the match will be taken to the 5th day, a face-saving loss. A drawn match will be a miracle. My pick of the batters are Rajin and Ashraful, and bowlers Enamul.

Hello to all my fellow ardent Bangladesh cricket fans! this is my first message in this site....
I am as excited as everyone else about this second test. although the threat of a debacle is very imminent i am starting this match like every other match...with hopes of a great Bdesh performance.
According to the reports in Prothom Alo Bdesh is going with only two specialist spinners, Enamul Haq and Mohammed Rafique. Although Manzarul Islam performed admirably I think the team think tank made the right decision. Enamul Haq is a specialist spinner and would surely be able to exploit the conditions better than Manzarul. I also feel Mushfiq should be the second pacer to open the bowling alongside Tapash. The requirement of the pacers in our attack is more a containing job, and Mushfiq has shown himself adept at least at maintaining a tight line and not spraying the ball around unlike some one like Tareq Aziz.We also need Tapash to pull his weight as our front line paceman and get some early breakthroughs for a change...
I for one am backing Alok Kapali to perform in this match(if selected of course). There has been a shower of criticism hurled at Alok after the last test , some of them quite deservedly. But to me Alok is still among the countries top 6 batsmen and one of the few batsmen who look at ease against any bowling. Maybe its about time when we stop vilifying one of our own and give them some encouragement instead. The current team is way too inexperienced at test level but I think the current batting line up would definitely form the core of our team for years to come. Wishing our young debutant Aftab and Bdesh best of luck! Here's the team I would want to see today...

Javed Omar
Nafis Iqbal
Rajin Saleh
Mohammed Ashraful
Aftab Ahmed
Alok Kapali
Khaled Mashud
Mushfiqur Rahman
Mohammed Rafique
Tapash Baisya
Enamul Haq

personally, i think its not a good idea to take out rana on every other occation. but, since there are only two alternative of playing rana in this match:
1) not playing enamul
2) opening bowling with a spinner.

i don't know much about the wicket, but after all the readings, i kind of figured out that enamul should play, but this decision can only be justified after the game. so, i'll leave that up the the selectors. dont know how good spinner enamul is comparing rana, but this is for sure that rana can bat better than enamul (better than most batsman in our team actually).

option two, open ball with a spinner. i kind of liked the idea IFF (a big if and only if) one of our 3 spinner can spin with new ball. don't know who is capable of doing that. if there is any, i'd definately leave out mushfiq for rana, keeping in mind that mushfiq has batted well below terrible in past days. but if there is no new ball spinner, we dont have an option but to leave out rana. damn, we needed only one more from the whole list below:

masri
sharif
talha
nazmul

what do u guys think about shahadat? should we have give him a chance in this crisis of pacers?

That wrongfully given out just prevented any scope to expose his chopra-itis syndrom, cuz he was way behind being in forties, and I don't think H_fan was mentioning about the 2nd innings.

I think we need a Chopra so that at least one of the openers will stay out there for a long time. even if they dont score many runs, just stay there.

The whole kapali situation is ridiculous. He may do well in this match, he may not. If teams were selected based on performance, it would have been common sense to keep Rana in the line up after the first test. Instead of that, they just broke the Rafique/Rana pair that worked well in the first test. Makes no sense at all. Let's hope Kapali does something with the bat and gets another hatrick in the 1/2 over he could end up bowling.

I think this team is instantly better than the last one. Aftab and Mushfiq are far better options than Hannan and Tareq, given what's available. Losing Rana after first test is a bummer but Enamul hopefully will fill that loss if you only consider a straight bowler swap. Was happenin with Tapash??

As for Tapash getting hammered, they already mentioned that the pitch will be as dull as they come. No matter how hard you bowl, it will not help the pacers and may also provide minimum help to spinners. Which leaves us with one think to do - PRAY that the Kiwis get bored and make the crucial mistake (however, if you followed kiwi cricket, they are a very patient bunch). Otherwise, we are toast.

I don't really know, why Rana is dropped most of the time. Is he really too bad?

Now, I am getting pissed with Tapash too. He is providing the pace and not using his brain on the where to place the ball, which is giving the kiwis a heck of a good time!

keep tapash in there for a while more he might settle down...plus if he gets a wicket it will be a big break through.

Maybe Rana has an attitude problem. Because why else would you drop someone who worked so well with Rafique in the 1st test and got 3 wickets. Plus he stayed around batting in the first innings for a while.

Man kiwis are just too good with the short balls or is it bowlers?

9.1 Mushfiqur Rahman to Sinclair, FOUR, short, Sinclair stands tall,
drives it through the extra-covers.

October 25, 2004, 11:15 PM
wow..bourney..that is news to me. Sorry to discuss aus-india match here as nothing good will happen to us for a while. Patel's adventures behind is hurting India every match. You can't let off easy catches behind in test matches. Good for Australia though and they will capitalize. Has Gilchrist lost any tosses so far?
Tapash has severe direction problem. he is all over the pace. Mushfiq is the classic example. If you keep it line, they will pay caution to you and treat you accordingly. Tapash at his pace, just can't afford to be wayward like this..Maybe, he is taking his place for granted..

i don't think any of our pace bowlers have heard of getting them, but our batsmen are experts on throwing them away, in fact, they coined the phrase.

12.2 Mohammad Rafique to Sinclair, OUT: tosses up, pitched on the middle
