"Bangladesh may make a couple of changes with Alok Kapali and Nazmul Hossain set to come in for Aftab Ahmed and Mashrafe bin Mortaza."

"Bangladesh captain Habibul Bashar has left his side in no doubt about what is at stake in the third game of their one-day series against Zimbabwe.

They are 2-0 down with three to play and Bashar said: "The next one will be a do or die match."

Their performances in the first two games have taken some of the gloss off their 1-0 victory in the Test series."

Why Nazmul instead of Mashree? IIRC, Nazmul bowling record in slog overs are very poor, like all other BD bowlers. Moreover he can't bat and on the other hand Mashree was consistently doing well with bat.

leaving out mashrafe after just one match is a bad decision.

AsifTheManRahman
January 25, 2005, 10:32 AM
as for aftab, i think he would have been given more chances had we been playing some other (stronger) side. he's been left out since winning is the only goal here.

Bad decisions ... I thought Alok in place of Rana ... 0-3 ... and 3/4 new faces will be in the team for the last two matches in Dhaka!

January 25, 2005, 10:39 AM
why do you want 3/4 new faces in the team? so that we get a better thrashing than we are getting at the moment?

I am fine with the current team (except Rafique).... that was my guess about what Faruque will do after losing 3rd match?

Agreed.

I think both our selectors and team management are totally clueless as to how to win this 3rd match. At this point, I don't see any other result except for a series defeat tomorrow with 2 more matches to go.

At least Rokon did not come in and go out like Kapali has been doing - he (Rokon) was far more consistent - always in the team.

faruq and other selectors made a great mistake, may be they r thinking it is a risk to prove themself. do whatever u like faruq, but remember u r takink to many wrong step to keep ur own selection and u have to answer for that.

January 25, 2005, 11:22 AM
many times we heard such rumors or speculations 12-24 hours prior to the game, but in the end selectors prove media wrong and fields the usual side. so, i'm hoping their speculation/rumor will be wrong in this case as well.

No one can bowl in the death. I wonder whether they will try Tapash!

Mahmood

Both of these 2 changes are totally idiotic. I hope they are just rumors. Or else, get ready for a bigger defeat, possibily by 70+ runs.

January 25, 2005, 11:45 AM
Aftab can be rested as he is totally ineffective against ZIm so far in the series... last match he scored 15 that's the highest in all the innings he played against ZIM in this series so far.

I would prefer a team like this under the current circumstances

1) Nafis
2) Rajin
3) Bashar
4) Ashraful
5) Kapali
6) Pilot
7) Rana
8) Sujon
9) Mashrafee
10) Tapash
11) Enam Jr.

Heii.. probably this is a wrong information by BBC!!

I was hearing TV news this evening (ATN or Channel I.. don remember) and they said Nazmul is replacing Tapash... not Kaushik.. and they said nothing about Aftab..


whatever it is... both the changes were totally Needless IMO!

AsifTheManRahman
January 25, 2005, 11:52 AM
why change tapash? he is the only bowler who can bowl well in the slog overs, and is probably one of the most consistent performers in the team.

i agree with all the comments about unnecessarily making changes. this team should be kicked in the butt and told to go out there and perform. not make changes like dropping your best bowler (mashrafee) or even a very capable ODI player (tapash). what the heck?

bring namul and tareq aziz in place of mashrafee and tapash, why would u want to relace aftab with kapali?? kapali should replace nafis iqbal, mushfiq should replace chacha and oh yes faisal hossain dickens has to replace rajin saleh.

oh...i was thinking more in the lines of recalling alamgir kabir...come on man tarq aziz has recently been too much in touch with cricket to be in the side...bring in someone more useless - someone more out of touch

1. I would rate the selected team as mediocre. It was a poor decision to drop Masri for Nazmul . There is no question about the abilities of Nazmul but it would have been better for our team if he had replaced Taposh instead.
2. Manjurul Islam Rana is also a poor choice for the 3rd ODI. I think,we can get much better bowling from Alok Kapali. For example Alok conceded only 40 runs from the 10 over he bowled. His batting was poor in the 2nd ODI but Alok is bound to come back to form any moments. We have lots of other slow blowers in the team such as Ash and Rajin. SO unless Rana proves to be solid in bat there is no point keeping him in the team.
3. I do not like the selection of Chacha but considering the fact the he inspires our team a lot unlike our dejected Captain Habibul Bashar, I would not argue otherwise.

What I just heard on Channel I news (10:30 pm Bangladesh time) is that Taposh and Alok are out from the 14 for this 3rd ODI. The report also said one of Rana and Razzak will play in the final XI. However, I don't know why Taposh is out.

January 25, 2005, 12:16 PM
thanks for the clarification. i'm guessing poor performance. if that's so, then the selectors should be slapped until their teeth fall off :)

Sam
January 25, 2005, 12:16 PM
I hope that this news is nothing but a hoax.
I want to see the team in a different way according to batting order:
1. Nafees
2. Rajin
3. Bashar
4. Al-Shahriar (although he is not in the selected 14 for the 3rd ODI)
5. Ashraf
6. K. Masud
7. MI Rana
8. K. Mahmud
9. Mashrafe
10. Tapash
11. Enam Jr.

I agree. Tapash wasn't even tried in the last 10 overs.


The most disappointing thing of Tapash's bowling in the depth was that when we lost to Scotland even with a total of 250 to defend. Now if that is the reason why Bashar would not even try Tapash in the slog overs of the last 2 matches (and now drop him from the squad for an ODI) then what can I say?

Since we're playing against Zimbabwe, I'll just give an example of a player from the Zimbabwe side. Robin Singh of India hit a boundary off Heath Streak to tie a match against Zimbabwe back in the late 90s, a match that Zimbabwe was supposed to win - from the looks of things. Now did that make Heath Streak a bad bowler, or an out of form player who needs to be dropped?

Ahmed_B
January 25, 2005, 12:21 PM
Tapash is out for sure..
Masree + Nazmul as Opening Duo
Between Rajjak n Manjarul... one will play. Who? Will be declared in the morning.

Can’t fully agree with the decision ... we may pay the price of not having Tapash’s blasting batting at the end of the order!!

fwullah
January 25, 2005, 12:22 PM
I have also heard ntv news reporting that Nazmul in place of Tapash and Razzak in place of Rana. I just hope the selectors made the right combination this time, because I'm sure that its not our best line up for ODIs (leaving Tapash).

I just had a sneak-peek at the IND match that we won - we had the following bowling line up:

1. Tapash
2. Mashrafee
3. Nazmul
4. Mahmud
5. Rafique


Why can't we have the same bowling combination against Zimbabwe? I know that Rafique is out through injury, so why didn't we let Enamul Junior just take the position of Rafique and then leave the rest of the guys same as before?

Why can't Tapash, Mashrafee, Nazmul and Mahmud play in the same team? Aren't we relying too much on spin from the very first game in this ODI series?

Rajjak is a good spin bowler, but as it was evident from the very first game that if a specialist bowler is not himself, then this Zimbabwe side will smash that bowler no matter how good a (spin) bowler he is.

I think we are focusing to the wrong point.
If someone thinks that the only reason for defeat in the 2nd ODI are the bowlers, then I will not agree. It's true that they have conceded 90 runs in the last 10 overs, but still the bowlers restricted Zim total less than first ODI. The miserable failure was the middle order. We were short of batsman. Now with the new changes if Enam Jr., Nazmul and Razzak will play in the playing XI then we will be more short of batsman then the last ODI.
Razzak's bowling was proved as toothless and ineffective against Zim in the very first match, can he prove it otherwise?

January 25, 2005, 12:59 PM
i am so mad at the selectors. They keep making mistakes. I rather see three fast bowlers than the spinners like rana or razzak who is not effective at all. Taking out tapash is only gona make our batting weaker cuz i dun think nazmul is a better bowler than tapash. So i would rather play nazmul in place of rana. so my side is nafis, razin, aftab, sumon, ash, pilot, sujon, masrafee, tapash, nazmul and enamul.

Cricket46
January 25, 2005, 01:26 PM
As far as I am concerned, there are too many inexperienced players in the proposed playing XI - Nafis, Aftab, Nazmul, Enamul, and Razzak. Can they handle a pressure match like this one? Sumon has said this is a do-or die match? Aftab, Nazmul and Razzak are not in the best of forms. I hope this team proves me wrong.

Except Sumon, Nafis and Pilot all the others can bowl - atleast as a part time bowler. But what about the batting? We were complaining about a batsman short in the previous team. That problem still persists.

I would put Tapash ahead of Nazmul as Tapash can bat a bit and if required can slog as well, Nazmul can do none.

Good Aftab is in ... hope he will shine this time. Taposh is always a better choice than Nazmul who knows may be he is not fit. Razzak is better bowler than Rana . This team is weaker in batting (on paper) than 2nd ODI teram ....

January 25, 2005, 01:58 PM

you see probably there is some local MP trying to take his GORU so he left the team to protect them and RAzaak was told to bowl with his bend hand so he get band but more imp get 10 wkts

ONE change might help. Niaz Morshed/Ziaur Rahman/Rifat Bin Sattar as CAPTAIN but will play as a 12/13th man in the team.

Someone who can play chess game. This way he will have a plan, handle mental pressure and adjust as game demands. Just convey the game plan to the "acting" captain in the filed. "Muchosta bidda" is in our blood, if the question is not common in the exam we tend to get nervous and do poorly in the exam. Isn't that right???

This might sound like a joke, but thats how the football is played in NFL. Really lot of time it is easy to plan for the game when you are just watching. My hope is Dav Whatmore should assume this position, to be more practical. But apparently since he is also watching with the rest of us, I would make Niaz Morshed as the thinktank CAPTAIN.

Picture Right: New surprise in BD bowling lineup to address slog overs. Bowls much faster than ChaCha.
