We must play for the Draw and for this we need some body scores big and everybody tries there best to stay at the crease(Learn some thing from Taibu)

I am being a pessimist, a loss by less than 100 runs will do for me. Of course, if they can win, I will be the happiest, but I am just scared to dream that...

I wanna say this on record before the game starts.

"I support bangladesh cricket team regardless of the result of this test, this test series, the next one-day series or the series after that. I support my team whether they score one hundred or they score a five hundred. I support my team regardless of the opponent or the game situation. And I am going to stay awake tonight, like I did the last three night, to see Bangladesh kick some serious Zimbabwean A-S-S!!!"

GO B-A-N-G-L-A-D-E-S-H!!

Without the help from nature, the possibility for a draw is almost non-existant because if the tigers were to play out 4-5 sessons for draw, they would theoretically cover 270 to 360 runs which should be pretty pretty close in the end.

So, a win or lose is the most likely outcome.

First innings was a wake up call for the tigers. After winning the 1st match they seemingly lost the competative tone in their muscles. They simply didn't know how to deal with the tremendous hangover from a win. They wanted to win the series but they allowed themselves to float in the euphoria just a little longer.

The inevitable of early struggle was written all over when Ashraful went on record to lament Zimbabwean bowling as weak. Soon enough, the whole team find itself in the deep.

Only a disciplined and determined team work can help the tigers pull out of the mess. It is neither that they haven't learn anything in case they lose nor that they had graduated overnight in the event they pull this through, the overall experience since the India tour has been priceless, regardless of the outcomes.

They know exactly what to do now. We just pray and hope, they have enough strength left to execute it.

Go tigers, you can do it.

if Ashraful does not get a decent score, he is going to be a laughing stock for making those premature remarks, so here's hoping he gets a big hundred for his sake, the team's sake and all us poor fans sake.

Actually think about the Bangladesh match against Sri Lanka.. Bangladesh was bundled out for 90 in the First Innings.. Sri Lanka had a massive 1st innings lead..

This time Zimbabwe only has an 97 run lead and is at 203 for 6 in the second.. So, Bangladesh has a slight chance if you want to entertain that angle. I know Bangladesh has an extremely difficult and daunting task at hand. Let us just wait and see before becoming psychics :)

cm bhai, well said! The Tigers have to dig deep and draw from their positive experience of the first test now. They know this Zimbabwe team is beatable. Tigers are down but hopefully, they will get up and put in one more great effort before this test series ends. We need to go into the ODIs on a positive note.

cricket is a strange game, you never know what will happen, lets see what is waiting for us, it is really a bad luck for us the recent situation which was not obvious that our batsman presented us, I think only they can recover this situation I mean they have to take the responsibility of this situation.

January 16, 2005, 08:41 PM
our batsmen lacks concentration and determination, they give lots of lots of edges or too late to play the ball, they hardly middle the ball with bat and thus shows they have not yet matured as good batsmen, sure our batsmen can score runs now and then, but they are not good with the basics. hopefully in 2/3 years we will have some better batsmen in our team with the improvement of cricket system in BD.

Today is going to be a matter of disciplined bowling to minimise the number of runs Zimbabwe have in the bank.

Will the target be over 330 ? Probably.

Will it be tough batting ? Yes.

But it'll be a matter of 20 runs at a time, of building good partnerships and staying at the crease.

If there is swing, Hondo will be a handful.

If there isnt, then Zimbabwe's spinners are going to have to bowl very well, or hope Bangladesh's batsmen bat badly.

Bangladesh can score runs against this attack on a slow pitch, and so far it hasnt done that much.

But when it's time to bat, it'll be a case of hit balls that are there to be hit, and leave or defend anything else. Unless Zimbabwe bat Bangladesh oput of the game, time will not be an issue - and if they do, then Bangladesh will only have about four and a half sessions to bat to save the game.

Does anyone know how many times a team has successfully chased 350+ in the 4th innings to win a test, say during the last 2-3 years? I am curious. My best guess is that the number of such instances is close to zero, if not zero itself.

The pitch did not look that bad on Day 3, so i am hopeful that determined BD batsmen will do OK on the 4th/5th day pitch. The question is: are they determined?... I believe they are!

The fact of the matter is that we are all tensed about the outcome of this match because of our unflinching support of the team. My better senses say that we are going to lose this match. Do we have the potential of winning from here? Certainly we have, but whether all pieces will fall in place is another matter. I would like to see a very tough fight from the Bangladesh team. I will feel sad if we lose, but I will be able to take it if we can put a real price on each wicket when we bat.

I don't care whether we play our natural or unnatural game. They have to stick it out there. A case in point is Taibu. How responsible this young player is. He could have almost gotten 3 centuries. We need at least one player just willing to stay there. This may be a great opportunity for our team to show what they are really made of. Hoping against hope.

Very few. In fact its only 6 times that a team has chased 320 odd runs or more in the fourthinnings in the history of test cricket:

* 418/7 West Indieas-Australia, St. Jones 2003/2004
* 406/4 India-West Indies, Port of Spain 1975/76
* 404/3 Australia-England, Leads 1948
* 369/6 Australia-Pakistan, Hobert 1999-2000
* 332/7 Australia-West Indies, Georgtown 1977/78
* 348/5 West Indies-New Zealand, Aukland 1986

Interesting to note that West Indies were involved on four occations either to chase or to defend in the fourth innings. Can Bangladesh add her name as a winner to this list? I still believe we can!

P.S. ok reverse_swing got some different stats than of mine. Let me check again for the correction :)

I think above comment is the key for Bangladesh batsman to save this match or win.
Specially Nafis, Rajin, Ash, Aftab must have to stay on the pitch for long time and score 50+ in average.
Bashar must have to score like a captain do, If Taibu can do something almost every time, why not Bashar?
Our bowlers are a big bonus for us with bat, which most of the team don't have.
We still have chance, because if a target of 350 to win is not achievable against this Zim team,
then we will never be able to win a test series for sure.
So lets take this opportunity as a challenge and work hard with full concentration and commitment to bring a final outcome.
Good luck will not bring anything but concentration and commitment will bring some I hope.

Hmmm...rare enough that I am sure each instance was the result of a miraculous batting display from the likes of a Lara. Is your belief that we can do it based on anything more than a belief in miracles?

Reverse-swing's stats look different from yours because he includes instances where the chasing team exceeded 350 in the 4th innings but still lost the match or produced a draw. Yours only include instances where the chasing team won the match. Thanks to both of you.

A target of 350 is hard enough for any team against any team in any pitch in the world in the second innings. Failing to achieve it doesn't conclude anything.

A belief is simply a belief. You can't judge it with rational mind but with some spontaneous emotional outburst. I know we are on a receiving end in this test...then again a die hard fan should never give up hope.

My prediction:

BD 308/8

so we'll win this match today:) No need to play tomorrow.

This sort of thing can only happen if Ashraful (or even someone else) produces the inspired, see-the-ball-like-a-watermelon batting display that he produced for his 158* not out. In other words, we need a miracle for it to happen. Perhaps it is the prospect of having the opportunity to view a miracle that keeps suckers like us come back for more.

January 16, 2005, 10:08 PM
well i might be being way too optimistic, but i believe bangladesh can pull this one off, if they can finish zimbwean innings within 50 more runs. Bangladeshi batsmen will perform well under pressure. Just like they did against west indies. Bashar, mashud, rafique, ash will play some good knocks and cruise bangladesh to victory. BD bastmen were overconfident in the 1st innings and that was the main reason for their collapse, but they will play cautiously this time and they have plenty of time, so no need to hurry.

No, he wasn't limping. I can't guess how serious it is, he was holding his hamstring after bowling the 3rd delivery and he left the field without finishing the over.

Our players do not play ball by ball so I think they will not be able to stay in the crease until tomorrow evening's last ball and if they do so then we will surely win there.

with all respect to bangladesh crcket fans, i forsee that bangladesh is going to loose this match by around 200 runs and there is no excuse for the loss. irresponsible way of batting, casual attitude, overconfidence, inability to overcome the negative thinking when they seems something goes against them and many more. the players are back in their familiar mood that they are awaiting the inevitable to come. waiting for the things to happen, but sadly not trying for things to come............im desparated and frustuated...... no meaning of following worthless match

This defeat will be more or equally disgraceful compared to the defeat against Canada in 2003 WC.

Things are not going well in this seesion for us. Zimbo lead is already 342, they have 2 wickets in hand, Taibu is still at crease.

This time it is Taibu making all the difference and last time there was another.
How come we don't have someone like that responsible?
In this match we desperately need some to stand up like him.
Bashare, Ash, Nafis, Aftab, Rajin and the rest have possibility but all short of temper and commitment.

there is always a tendency that bangladesh can not bat well when they seems something wrong against them or the opposition put pressure on them. i fear based on these past experience that bangladesh will make around 150 in the second innings.....this time i would blame coach and management for not making a clear cut strategy for this game.

he has no sense
why he is not giving the ball to ashraful?
ashraful always bowled well and took the wickets when he got opportunities
yesterday he was turning the ball better than enamul and rafique
he was bowling googlies continously
still the captian has no confidence in him

and why he fear to give the ball to rajin saleh, aftab ahmed?

It just goes to show that if you have the will and courage, like what Taibu has been doing, anything is possible. Its amazing how he works with tailenders to work on the PARTNERSHIPS. That is the key.

Injury bug has really bit us. Rafiq is in pain. Masri bowled really well throughout this innings till he got injured. Tapash struggled big time. Enamul is going to be really good for us. Great showing to pick up 11 wkts!
I expect them to bat out. Too much time left, though it is out of our hand completely.

Without doubt, he bowled very well and got deserved reward, but he has to prove himself against tougher oppositions to confirm that he's equally/more effective than Rafique.

I think enamul will be the Man of the series. And no doubt if we loose then selectors may give enamul the Man of the series prize as it is only his 3rd/4th Test. And he is the youngest player who took 7 wickets in a test innings!!

No way to compare with Rafique: Pls keep in mind that Rafique is injured; He is still playing that is a big game spirit from him; His presence in the bowling team is a plus point against all the teams; All teams are afraid of Rafique. And that is an extra benefit besides his bowling

Our players should not think anything else except to keep themself in the crease. No thinking of win or draw or loose. Just stay in crease and the things will come as usual

Hondo to Javed Omar, no run, great delivery, pitches outside off
and swings away, plays and misses

16.3 Hondo to Javed Omar, one run, on leg stump, turns it to backward
square leg and wants a 2nd run, goes far down the wicket, sent
back by Nafies, throw was on wrong end, otherwise, Javed would be
in trouble

are they stupid?????????????????

lets get behind them

if we get to the end of the day about 80/0 we will only need 290 runs to win in a day with ten wickets left that is less than 3 an over

shaheen

May be DW said to them no loss of wicket in first 15 overs which they already finished and now they think that they have done their job so can go for suide now:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

They are no going for suicide. They are leavign the balls alone which is exactly what they should do. Its better to kill the overs as much as possible at this point without losing a wicket.

That's tea break now. Bd should think that they are going to start the game now. And play another 34 overs without any loss what ever the run is. Then we can restart the game again tomorrow morning.

IF JO and NI can break their openning record (i.e. 91+ runs for no loss), I would be very happy. I am sure, we need 3 to 4 partnership like this, then we will win..

then sign up. its free.
then search for a group named "live cricket" and join it.
thats it.


if you wanna watch the webcam thing (its not very high quality)
you can add the nick bangladeshlive or bangladeshlive1, or bangladeshlive6 on your yahoo messenger. then just view their webcam.

or you can go here http://bangladeshlive.ww.com/
but its REALLY poor quality. and you have to refresh it every ten minutes
