3rd test will start on February 25. This one will be a real test for our youngstars because some of the rebel players may play this test. (http://plus.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/CRICKET_NEWS/2005/FEB/188488_ZIM_24FEB2005.html)

This is great. Our boys have proven that they are superior the Zimb A side that they have played in the first two "tests" and it great that they are getting a chance to take on some of the big boys. Actually, if these three do play, along with Blignaut who I think is playing, the four of them will make the Zimb A team atleast as strong as the one that came to Bangladesh and is on tour right now in South Africa!

Ray Price has now been added to it as well. So thats possibly Streak, Carlisle, Gripper, Price and Blignaut against us tomorrow!

Possible BD team:

Roquibul Hasan
Shahriar Nafees
Tushar Imran
Shamsur Rahman
Mahmudullah Riyad
Saquibul Hasan
Mushfiqur Rahim
Syed Rassell
Shahadat Hussain
Enamul Huque
Shafaq Al Zabir

That leaves out Dhiman, Sanwar, Waseluddin and Sharif.

If Sanwar is fit then I like to see how he performs against Zimbabwe. He should get at least one chance! Who should be dropped then? I am not sure .. Probably Shamsur Rahman ... just to let him know his place in the team depends on his performance!

Sham
February 24, 2005, 09:36 AM
Yeah I had thought of that as well. But decided on Shamsur because he will probably benefit more out of playing this match than will Sanwar. Sanwar is a decent batsman but I don't see him making it back into the Test side, so its better to give Shamsur another go, even though he has performed well below expectation.

Mr-khan
February 24, 2005, 09:46 AM
I agree with Sham because Sanwar got many chances before.He could not perform.It will be better if Samsur get chance.These youngstars need to play more fast class matches.

You guys how can you think to drop Shamsur Rahman!

fwullah
February 24, 2005, 10:27 AM
Shamsur Rahman is in this BD 'A' team? I totally forgot about him. Just goes to show how quickly we tend to forget up & coming players if they don't perform.

I think he's struggling to adjust to the conditions in Zimbabwe - movement, pace bowlers getting more help from the pitch etc.

February 24, 2005, 10:48 AM
The coach had said that Enamul was being rested during the second 'test' as a precautionary measure. I don't think there was any mention of him not playing any further part on this tour. I think he will play tomorrow!

This is great news! This should give us a good idea of how good our upcoming players actually are! If the rebels actually do play, this is the strongest selection our A-team players have ever played, barring sanuar and enamul jnr.

BBC report (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/other_international/zimbabwe/4295123.stm) sounds the rebels will play in one-day matches not in the 3rd test (except Blignaut). :(:(

February 24, 2005, 11:26 AM
Shamsur Rahman should get the most exposure down there in Zimbabwe but I would be dissapointed if the selectors are eyeing him for a test debut that soon.

February 24, 2005, 11:41 AM
Looks like Sharif is coming empty handed out of this tour. So much expectation, played pretty well upon comeback in domestic, but at the end he is not likely to make it to the national side....

yes, rebels are back. Streak and Carlisle were definitely world class who could score big against any teams. Not sure though, if they are in form though after a prolonged absense.



Streak, Gripper, Price and Carlisle to return?

Rebels set for dramatic comeback?

Cricinfo staff

February 24, 2005



Cricinfo has learnt that four of Zimbabwe's rebels - Heath Streak, Stuart Carlisle, Ray Price and Trevor Gripper are on the verge of making a dramatic comeback.

It seems that talks aimed at brokering a deal to bring the remaining striking players back into the fold have progressed well, and the four could well travel to Kwekwe overnight to play in the final A-team Test between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. If they do play, then it is quite likely that one or more of them will be drafted into the squad already in South Africa.

A spokesman for Zimbabwe Cricket said that negotiations were still ongoing and, therefore, it would be premature to comment.

It would seem that the main stumbling block in the way of a settlement - the criteria under which selectors are chosen - has been overcome, and it is thought that Zimbabwe Cricket has agreed to review this. That could mean that Max Ebrahim, the head of selectors and the man identified by the rebels as being the main source of contention, would step down.

All four rebels have been playing local cricket, and so while they might be lacking first-class practice, all of them are thought to be ready to resume straight away.

Even if the rebel players return, I doubt if all of them will play against the 'A' team. It is likely that a few of them will play in the 3rd test and in the ODIs.:umm:

any updates on the 3rd test, who playing for each side toss stuff like that, all these zim newspapers online are controlled(except for a few) by there gov't is really sad. Nothing on cricket no mention of cricket on any of these zim sites.

Here is some clue for you. Andy Blignaut is playing today among the Big Boys.
Report:
Zimbabwe A v Bangladesh A, Kwekwe Sports Club

Blignaut returns for final 'Test'

Cricinfo staff

February 24, 2005



Zimbabwe A and Bangladesh A lock horns in the third and final four-day Test match, which gets underway at Kwekwe Sports Club on Friday. Bangladesh have already secured the series with back-to-back wins.


Zimbabwe A first-choice wicketkeeper Tafadzwa Mufambisi has been ruled out of the game because of injury and the selectors have called up Wisdom Siziba, a useful keeper and a top-order batsman.

Another change is the return of Andy Blignaut who is expected to bat an No. 6. in place of Gregory Strydom who has struggled with the bat. Blignaut, who was one of the rebels who went on strike last April, announced that he was prepared to play again earlier this week.

Terrence Duffin and Vusumuzi Sibanda are again expected to open with captain Dion Ebrahim, in need of runs, coming in at No. 3 while Kudakwashe Samunderu and Chamunorwa Chibhabha complete the top order line up.

With Mluleki Nkala still injured, Blessing Mahwire will lead the bowling attack with Waddington Mwayenga, Campbell Macmillan and legspinner Graeme Cremer.

Golam Nowsher, a member of the Bangladesh selection panel arrived in Zimbabwe on Monday and managed to see his side complete their 190-run victory on Tuesday. Mohammed Enamul Haque (jnr), who picked up ten wickets in the first match but was rested for the second game is likely to return.

Our coach suggested during the 2nd test that his team always go with 4 bowlers -- it seems he has 5 genuine bowlers in this match! Sakib is probably considered the alrounder! Is he good enough to play as a batsman alone?

Dhiman is a 'Taibu wanna be', I guess. But the move backfired. Dibly doblies would not cut it at this stage.

Shahadat was the 4th change bowler? probebly this is the first time in a match when he didn't bowl a single no-ball! I'm impressed! Generally he is quite generous to give away NBs and Wides. Is he getting there in terms of accuracy?

Big Shak only bowled 9 overs in total of 110 overs. So he got 4.5 overs per new ball. Interesting.

Craig Ervine leads recovery to 266 for 8

Cricinfo staff

February 25, 2005



Zimbabwe A 266 for 8 (Ervine 69*, Dabengwa 52, al Hasan 3-53) v Bangladesh A
Scorecard

Zimbabwe A recovered from an indifferent start in the third and final Test against Bangladesh at the Kwekwe Sports Club, and had reached 266 for 8 by the end of the first day. Bangladesh A lead the three-match series 2-0.

Deon Ebrahim won the toss and decided to bat, but at 88 for 5 - and later 141 for 6 - his decision wasn't looking inspired. Ebrahim himself made a dogged 33, from 130 balls, but Winston Siziba and Vusi Sibanda both fell to Saqibul Hasan, the 15-year-old left-arm medium-pacer, who finished up with 3 for 53 from 32 overs.

Much interest centred on the return to the Zimbabwe fold of the former "rebel" Andy Blignaut, but he gave a return catch to Sanwar Hossain after scoring only 10.

Zimbabwe A were rescued by a rearguard led by Sean Ervine's younger brother Craig, who hit 69 not out and shared a seventh-wicket partnership of 77 with Keith Dabengwa, whose 52 included eight fours. Blessing Mahwire then contributed a forthright 28, from 30 balls with five fours, and the final score was an improvement for the Zimbabweans

Thanks ... that was a mistake by me . Hossain --> Sanwer.

I like to see Sahahdat is getting a test off to charge his battery for the ODIs. Also good decision to give Sanwer a chance. But we are playing with only two pacers in this match. We are playing with eight batsmen (including Mushfiq) and three bowlers. Very defensive team combination I guess.

Now that I know Shahdat has been rested, my post really does not make any sense. Because True to Coaches word, Bangladesh is playing with 4 genuine bowlers. Sorry for the mistake!

On a foot note, Shahadat did not bowl at all, and that makes part of your post quite irrelevant too!

why we they playing both dhiman and mushfiq i cant understand......there is another bantsman called.....Wasel.......he should be given a chance.......he played well in the premier league fpr mohammedan and he should be tested more as a batsman......no point in playing two keepers in a match to me.

8 genuine batsmen.....but we're talking about bangladesh. I guess you could say that we have the potential to score big.....only if everybody plays with some common sense. New BD batsmen always find this very hard, and who;s to blame them right?

According to the cricinfo scorecard:

The eight fallen Zimbabwean batsmen faced 442 balls, that's 74 overs. It does not show how many balls Ervine and McMillan had faced. These two bowlers faced almost 36 overs between them. Maybe that's why part-timers Tusher, Sanwar, Dhiman and Mahmudullah (not sure if he is a part-timer)bowled 25 overs. Maybe we are using this as a full-fledged practice/trial match.

very good observation Shaeen. Yes, I think Tusher is really getting there. Dissapointment was Sharif. He didnt get enough chances but I hope that we solidify our A team by having the series.

At the end, I think this tour for Bangladesh went well. In the ODIs, I would like to see some aggression and heroics. I wonder what plans they have next for this squad.

I don't understand why Shafaq is being so under-bowled in every match. What is the point of taking a specialist bowler if he is only going to bowl 9 overs on a day when the team bowled a total of 110? It just seems like they have taken him to bowl a few with the new ball and hand over to the spinners. Would have been more understandable if this was their second innings, but is strange on the first day of the match! And its not like he is gettin whacked around or not picking up wickets. He gave away 15 in 9 overs and got a wicket as well! Strange. The captain could have easily shared the work load more equally between the two pacers.

Actually, all the specialist bowler's should have shared the workload more equally. Saquibul and Enamul should not have had to bowl more than 25 overs each, and Shafaq and Rassel should have each bowled about 16-18 overs. After all, the Test series has already been won, and its more important at this stage to give everyone some good match practice without overworking them. Of course, we would love to win this won and do a clean-sweep, but I don't think we would have done much worse if the captain hadn't decided to bowl Enamul and Saquib for such a large bulk of the overs.

Saquib was impressive again. Good job by him. Enamul didn't pick up too many wickets, but thats okay. No bowler picks up wickets in each and every game. Good to see Sanwar and Tushar contributing with the ball.

Actally this is my pre-conceived idea that Shafaq is suitable for longer version and Sharif for the shorter one (OD), assuming lefty SK Russel and Shahadat are the main pace bowler in this tour. So Sharif should get few matches in OD series. The reason I want to see Sharif excell in OD maches is that he can play useful camio innings later in the innings and has a 'reputation' to clean up the tail with old ball (depending on which team he is playing against). So we will have healthy competition for pace bowling allrounder slot in ODI matches, which is now occupied by Chacha.

By the way Saqib is very much a left-arm spinner. If any of you can get a hold of Wisden Cricketer's March edition (which came out on Feb 18th) you can get an idea about him. Wisden wanted to know who was the finest young talent under the age of 20 in Bangladesh apart from Ashraful and I went for Saqib.

BD A 206-6
Sports Reporter

The visiting Bangladesh A team were 206-6 half-an-hour before close of play on the second day of the third and final Test against Zimbabwe A at the Kwekwe Sports Club in Harare yesterday.
Tushar Imran scored 58 and Saqib Al Hasan 47 as the tourists recovered from a shaky start, which saw them go into lunch at 76-2.

Earlier, the home side added only three runs to their overnight 266-8 in the morning before being dismissed.


The Zimbabweans was boosted by the return of former 'rebel' Andy Blignaut, but he gave a return catch to Sanwar Hossain after making only 10.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh A lead the three-match series 2-0.

It's very much possible that Mushfiqur might see his partners falling at the other end. But first thing--he will have to stay there himslef. If he falls first..then it's end of story.

By holding on...i meant stay on the crease and score runs. No body want him to just stand there and enjoy a retired life at the crease!! :lol::lol::lol:

If we can wrap up the tail quickly in the fourth morning, I'm positive, we can register a rare whitewash. Fingers crossed.

Zimbabwe A now lead by 220 runs. Its unrealistic to see them extending that lead over 250. Therefore Bangladesh A will have a target around 250 to win the match, which is very possible in the final day. Nevertheless, they will need a good start and sensible batting from the boys...

Both these scorecards don't explicitely tell us about the stumps although John Ward always sent scores at the end of the day's proceedings.

Would have been more understandable if this was their second innings, but is strange on the first day of the match! And its not like he is gettin whacked around or not picking up wickets. He gave away 15 in 9 overs and got a wicket as well! Strange. The captain could have easily shared the work load more equally between the two pacers...
I think there is an instruction to the captain not to overuse Shafaq; because most probably he is in list of probable inclusions in the senior team for England tour. BCB earlier issued a notice not to overuse some pacers including Rajib. But Shafaq's name was not there. Recently Golam Nowsher Prince has visited Zimbabwe and watched the second test. However, I guess, he might have hinted not to overuse him. That's why he bowled just 12 overs in both the innings. This is just a speculation.

It just seems like they have taken him to bowl a few with the new ball and hand over to the spinners. Would have been more understandable if this was their second innings, but is strange on the first day of the match! And its not like he is gettin whacked around or not picking up wickets. He gave away 15 in 9 overs and got a wicket as well! Strange. The captain could have easily shared the work load more equally between the two pacers...
I think there is an instruction to the captain not to overuse Shafaq; because most probably he is in list of probable inclusions in the senior team for England tour. BCB earlier issued a notice not to overuse some pacers including Rajib. But Shafaq's name was not there. Recently Golam Nowsher Prince has visited Zimbabwe and watched the second test. However, I guess, he might have hinted not to overuse him. That's why he bowled just 12 overs in both the innings. This is just a speculation.

This speculation also has to assume that Shafaq is ahead of Rajib in the food chain.

their lead can't exceed 250, the last two batsman should be sent back within 10-20 runs. even if ervine keeps one end intact, let it be, we'll clean up the other end.

then, we can try to start defensively. when we see we have a good start and has enough wicket to get the runs, play like one day.

but the game is pretty much in our hand now.

Both these scorecards don't explicitely tell us about the stumps although John Ward always sent scores at the end of the day's proceedings.

There might, just a might, be be mistake in the NTV's part in taking 202/8 as 208 all out.
Now you confused me chinaman bhai! :duh:

Thanks but we are trying to get confirmation whether it is 202/8 or 208 all out for Zimbabwe's 2nd innings.

Any updates?

But Rajib is already been rested in this match. So, we cannot say that Shafaq is ahead of Rajib, if I understood you correctly.
In the one-dayers they are going to bowl max 10 overs, which is fine and acceptable to BCB.

Zimbabwe A 2nd innings : 217/10
Bangladesh A 2nd innings : 109/1 (Tusher Imran 47 Not Out)

Now we have a good chance to chase 236 to win the match.

Bangladesh A have wrapped up the three match series 3-0 with a comprehensive victory in Kwekwe today. After bowling Zimbabwe out in their 2nd innings for 217 early on day 4, BD required 236 runs from 90 overs to claim victory and a series white wash.

The winning runs came from Mahmudullah Riyad in the 47th over. Bangladesh set up the day with an excellent partnership of 162 between captain Nafees Ahmed (86) and Tushar Imran (81) before both were dismissed midway through the 2nd session. Ahmed to a top edged sweep shot and Tushar run out in a mix up with Sanuar Hossain. Sanuar contributed 27 before he was the 5th wicket to fall to a tough lbw decision in the 25th over.

This win was a tough one for the players after having already won the series and offering a first innings leads to Zimbabwe, the young team fought back well and through some positive aggressive cricket were able to steal the match back from Zimbabwe who should have really taken the match after the first innings.

Both team now prepare for the ODI series which commences on the 3rd March in Kwekwe. Bangladesh will be without the services of captain Nafeees Ahmed and Shakib Al Hassan who are both returning to Dhaka to undertake important exams. No replacements will be flown in.

Rajib bowled full overs in all the games he played in. If Shafaq is rationed for England and Rajib wasn't, that means they would want Shafaq over Rajib (assuming no injury). Thats not a possible. At this point Rajib is roaring. Therefore the entire speculation lost its foundation.
