My take:
1) Y'all need to cut Bashar some slack - BD fought back well in the 1st session. Surely we should give the captain credit for inspiring his team when the Indians went in the day b4 at 300+/w. And his use of Ash was brilliant

2) We don't know how to press the advantage. Mark Richardson commented on this as well remember? Lack of self belief and our inherent cultural temerity prolly is a big factor

3) Mashrafee is not match fit yet. He's a resource but needs to work up to full fitness.

4) Didn't watch Talha, but Nazmul was all nerves

5) Manjurul should focus on batting. His bowling is inncouous at best on the test level. In ODI's his flattish tracetory might be useful as a 5th bowler.

6) We _did_ go in with 4 frontline bowlers (theortecially). Rafiq, Mashrafee, Talha, Nazmul

7) Would have loved to have seen Aftab bowl

8) This deck is flatter than my man-chester fupu - really if we play with a straight bat, we should avoid the follow-on target of 340.

Watching this ball on wmplayer, I saw the complete lack of footwork. Had he just played forward it would have been a harmless delivery. Nafis was leaded-footed. Lucky to have survived, just. Cricinfo description is frankly wrong.

Having seen it on tv, Nafis was not to blame. JO didn't even notice that the ball had gone so far. Zaheer threw in the ball from fine leg. Nafis was in handshaking distance from JO when he turned back. JO does not say Yes / No, that's what Wasim was talking about.

Now one question: It seems that the spinners are very effective in this pitch. See Rafiq, vajji and kumble. Pacers are not that much effective in this batting pitch. Then why our selectors take three pacers by dropping one batsman?

They made the pitch at their will and select a team to give advantages to the opponent.

Dear bruder, unfortunately not. vajji and kumble starts and finish tomorrow. At the extreme, ganguly may give the new ball to this pair also.

We improved in the sense that today we faced the new ball without any wicket. But this due to the pitch. Anyway, now we are in the second level, where we must face the spinners. Initially we failed. What we(including our batsman) can do is pray.

I am less pessimistic than you are. I saw Harbhajan and Dav's post-match interviews. The wicket is not yet a full turner and is still pretty hard. JO went for a drive to a ball that was not there. Nafis did not play with soft hands and Mortaza was not out, simple, whoever says what. Kumble and Harbhajan did not cause too many problems in Dhaka.

I would say that if he was not careful, he would not have reached 30 anyway. However, longer anyone bats gives others in the dressing room the impression that things in the middle aren't so bad.

Let's face it: 48 opening stand was not a bad one. We are usually 48/5. I know 54/3 does not sound much better but it includes Mortaza.

Everyone is saying that staying in the wicket should be our main job. I think, scoring runs is the main job, and since you can't score runs without staying in the wicked for a while, it's necessary to stay there. But if a top order batsman thinks that staying in the wicket is his main job, then it gives opposition bowlers to be more aggressive and at the end, the task of staying in the wicket becomes lot more difficult. When the batsmen get out without scoring many runs, the all minutes of staying in the middle becomes useless.

Remember what happeed when Bangladesh were over-defensive against first test vs. NZ? They couldn't score more than 170 though they batted over 3 full sessions. Bangladesh never made a respectable total with over-defensive strategy.

Rahul Dravid doesn't get runs when he's too defensive. When he gets runs, he both plays shots and stays in the wicket.

It was not plumb. But he was not unlucky either. When the ball not pitched outside leg stump, is hitting the offstump and the batsman doesnt offer a shot he will be given out. When you don't offer shot, the benifit of doubt factor doesn't come into picture. Not offering the shot was a bad decision by Mashrafe. Unless it is pitched outside leg, not offering the shot is quite risky.
