Here is a prediction. You will be seeing at least one ton from either habibul or ashraful. Moreover, Ashraful will be leading run scorer for the serious. And rafique once again will prevail as the leading wicket taker for the series as well. Now let the game begins. :fanflag:

roaring tigerz
December 9, 2004, 03:56 PM
according to prothom-alo the playing eleven is:

Javed Omar
Nafis Iqbal
Habibul Bashar
Mohammed Ashraful
Rajin Saleh
Mushfiqur Rahman
Khaled Mashud
Manjarul Islam
Mohammed Rafique
Mashrafee Bin Mortuza
Tapash Baisya

mushfiq playing? selectors are bang on target with past behavior if that is right. they should have a pool on the selection, it will be easy to make money since it always counters logic. but then again what does prothom alo know

right, i'm off to bed, but here is my prediction!
when i wake up in about 6 hours time, BD will be batting and Habibul Bashar and Nafees Iqbal will be at the crease
score board will read:
J. OMAR 11.( bowled)
N. IQBAL 85 not out
H. BASHAR 101 not out.

Yes, due conditions due to fog and as per the ESPN commentary, it is because the grounds-men had put too much water on the pitch yesterday evening and since its winter-time, sun comes out lighter than usual, so possibly the game will start after lunch.

Hello and welcome to Wisden Cricinfo's live coverage of the first
Test between India and Bangladesh being played at the Bangabandhu
National Stadium, Dhaka.
start will be delayed due to wet conditions, dampness caused not by
rain but from the condensation of dew!
the pitch is bit damp and that is the major problem at the moment
thankfully the sun is slowly beginning to take effect, we will keep
you posted as things move along

If the pitch is really damp and offers lateral movement, it's not a good news for BD to be batting first.

In any case, most BD supporters wanted BD to bat first. So this is their first wish come true.

1.2 Khan to Nafis Iqbal, no run, very close to the off stump line, well

the right-hander, Iqbal pushes at it and gets beaten, good

.6 Pathan to Javed Omar, OUT: first blood! good length delivery,
pitched in line with the off stump and swinging in, Omar offers no
shot and gets hit on the pad in front of the stumps, this time
umpire Lloyds is convinced, Pathan strikes early

18 balls, 8 runs. Whether it is Hannan Sarkar or not, the result is still the same. How many frights did we get in the past 10 minutes ? The technique against left arm in-swing is woefully inadequate.

Even playing amature cricket, first thing we learned about defensive batting: Bat-Pad defence on the front foot. England used it for at least 20 years before their batsmen learned to play the quickies of West Indies and Pakistan. All they played were straight drives.

arey easy bhai..why would you want to play a makeshift opener in a test match? right now, we have nobody in the pool worthy of a replacement. You have hannan, biddut( who retired ) and who else with experience? no one..gotta go with what you have.

Beamer
December 10, 2004, 01:34 AM
Zaheer has control issues. When on song, he is pretty good. Not very consistent. Pathan is great. At this age, he has more control than Akram ever had. Akram was faster though.

It is correct that Pathan relies on control more than on pace. Pathan is listed as LMF(not as RMF) but it does not mean much. Douglas Hondo is described as RFM whereas he only bowls at about 124 kmph. Pathan is described as LMF even though his quickest delivery can be in 140+. At present, Pathan is nearly as quick as Zaheer Khan, if not more. Correct description for Pathan would be LFM.

Given our inability to face a top lefty pacer, I won't be surprised if Pathan does it again and again in the second innings and in the second test. We must practice in the nets with a lefty. A lot of it. Get that Kamrul kid from Ctg to bowl at them in the nets. Or, find a couple of lefty batsmen for future to counter the Pathans, Khans, Franklins, Vass and pedro Collins..We are doomed.

He is destroying us in every single game. Just recalled from last Asia cup he did the same thing there. Our dumbass cricketer tacking the same bait over and over again. They will never lean unless we introduce chabok in our sporting system. Only for cricket players though.

ashraful was struggling in premier league against local bowlers. if this is true, how can survive world class bowlers.... he needs something extra and also luck to stay there for a long time.

mashud may score more than 40, looking to his recent form in premier league
