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.

Accoding to Ravi Shastri, if the batsman offers a shot then the benifit of doubt goes to the batsman.But if he does not offer a shot,then the bowler gets the benifit.Masri did not offer a shot and that was his downfall. Although,it was clear that the ball would have missed off-stamp..oops:

i am expecting atleast one 70+ innings and a 40+ from BD batsman.We should target to avoid follow-on right now so that we can put India to bat again and take the game to the 5th day.I watched last night's game and it was a different feeling.Pilot,Rafiq and Javed are the only players whom I saw playing before.The only thing I noticed was the lack of temperment. They can play shots but they want play shots all the time.It may be done in the domestic league with the chuno-puti bowlers.But when you are playing against quality bowlers,temperment has to be at the highest level.
Wasim Akram mentioned a very important thing.He said that now a days,players should not be brought to the international arena without having sufficient quality first-class match experience.It was ok to bring in players without experience 20 years ago.But not now.He also slammed the selectors for bringing in too many young players.I think this was a very good point made by him,and this is the main reason for our repeating failure.

If Habibul scores 70+ or maybe a 100, then may make a good total, otherwise the same old story will repeat.

WRONG!! The problem is they can't play shots well, their selection is poor and placement is terrible. Most of times when they face a bad ball, they can't put it away. They can't put away bad balls in too many occasions. So naturally they get impatient after some time, and starts swinging bat wildly against good balls.

BD starts 48-1, pathan and zaheer wicket less, JO and nafees last 26.1 overs...a dream start...2 wickets down, nafis should have stayed longer. now bashar, ash, pilot, rafique, and rana need to come up with at least 300 runs.

Unless it is pitched outside leg, not offering the shot is quite risky.

I do appreciate that under the "not offering a stroke" variant of the rule, the ball can strike the pad outside the off-stump. The same rule also states that in the opinion of the umpire the ball must go on to hit the stumps.

I feel that Mashrafee was quite stretched on the front foot to have caused doubt in the umpire's mind. It clearly didn't to Benson [ or, was it Aleem ? ]

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.



No it does not mean that staying in crease without run.

In test against India whose 1st innings total 540, no way to chasing the total; motto is not a draw even, if Bd could save the follow on, match might needs the 5th day and that would be a noticeable improvements.

So play with the merit of the ball. 40 run from 50 balls would be eye catching but no use at this stage.

And an openerís responsibility is also ensuring that the middle order batsmen not facing the new hard ball, Bd is used to though!

I still think that lack of temperment makes them play poor shots. If they don't have too many shots in their arsenal,then don't play shots.It is as simple as that.Look at Steve Waugh.If you watch his games,you will see that how a batsman can beat all odds by patience,temperment, and character.

I went to sleep after 10 overs into BD innings, mostly because i didn't expect anything to happen.

For a change, i did see a lot of resolve in BD openers.

Update me guys how it became 54/3 (realistically, 54/2 since the third wicket is of a tail-ender).

December 18, 2004, 01:04 PM
Javed pushed a regular leg-break from Kumble to Dravid at first slip. Nafis gave a bat-pad catch,and Masri got out in a bull sh... LBW decision.BD will lose more sticks today as the pitch has started to crack.

BD will score close to 300 and some 275+ in the 2nd which will require India to get 30 odd runs to win. India will be 30/3 thus will win the test by 7 wkts.
If this happens not bad hah!!

DJ Sahastra
December 18, 2004, 01:22 PM
BD has batsman till number 11. The tail is stronger than even the top and the middle order.

I think they will easily score 300+.

How are Talka Jubair and Nazmul Hossain as tailenders?

sunniath
December 18, 2004, 01:26 PM
Hard to say.Nazmul never played first-class match before and Talha just came back from a long break.I guess these two are regular tail-enders without any batting skills.

new year is coming, we should do that soon, create and invest money for local cricket players and teams, give incentive to play in local cricket and bring the standard and competition up for domestic cricket.

I think it's a good tactic to play the fast ball aggresively.
Spinners will be hard for them, as the pitch crack is widenning. Also it is easier to take on the baller as the wicket has nothing to offer them.

I rather see them take on the bowlers, and stay there not score any runs and than get out like javed omar.

Attacking is the best defence, unfortunately not all batsmen can use this way of defense, so using a lesser way of defence of is usually recommended.

But when somebody can use the best method of defense, why use lesser ways? In test, Australia scores faster than any team and loses less than all other teams.

I am watching it live, but you should see some of the shots by bashar and ashraful that was up in the air and the ball dropped between two fielders that is because luck was favoring, in test you do not want to bat with luck. in 1 day cricket i will be jumping up and down with this batting. if you see the match they hardly scored runs on the off side, and very few straight shots.
