View Full Version : Simulation: BanglaCricket XI v Sri Lanka, 1st ODI

January 5, 2005, 06:49 PM
Hello and welcome to Dambulla for the first ODI between the BanglaCricket XI and Sri Lanka. News is that the weather looks as if it's going to hold off and we should get a full 100 overs bowled today. The pitch is looking a shocker due to the rain and should be difficult to score on. BanglaCricket XI have brought two new players into this team, Nasif and Bdmoderator meaning that Mueid will have to carry the drinks. Sri Lanka are not risking any injuries playing on an underprepared surface so they have rested a few players. A very good effort by the Sri Lankans to come out and play after the tsunami disaster

BanglaCricket XI: Pundit, Unknown, Asif Rahman, Ehsan, Nasif, Bdmoderator, Oracle, Chinaman, Bourny3, Navarene, Piranha

Sri Lanka: Jayantha, Atapattu, Sangakkara, Jayawardene, Dilshan, Arnold, Samaraweera, Vaas, Muralitharan, Gunaratne, Buddhika

Thanks for every support from my fellow team mates to have me get 5er for the first time in ODI's. I really enjoyed bowling on a track that saw a bit dump due to early rain. I just tried to pitch the ball on right spot and thats did the magic to my bowling! Thanks to our captain to have faith on me to bowl against these class bunch of Srilankans. It was a great day for me to become Mom. I am more happy to see our team bagged a win than my 5er. Lets keep our hope high for the next ODI:)

News is that Pundit injured his index finger while batting and is in doubt for the next match, his fitness will be decided on in the morning.
