What do Banglar fans have to say?

March 8, 2005, 12:21 PM
wow...tomar signature e amar post...

anyways, i think the game is evenly poised and a comment on who's better off can only be made at the end of the second day.

however, i'd say pakistan would have wanted to bat longer instead of getting bundled out on the first day.

Fazal
March 8, 2005, 12:46 PM
>> Times of India says Pakistan took the honors on day 1.

They must be smoking something.

Anything below 350 and below '4 session batting innings (2nd day 1st session)' is not a good news for pakistan. Because India will score big ine the 1st innings and then Pakistan will be all out in the 4th day scoring 220+ something.

Shehwar
March 8, 2005, 01:06 PM
Yeah I also feel that Pakistan should have atleast scored 375......The Indians have a huge batting line up & are likely to put up a monumental score against a weak Pakistan bowling line up...However watch out for RANA - NAVED - UL - HASAN...Don't go by his looks...lolz....

The game is quite evenly balanced now, but India have the edge.

Tommorow's game will set the course of this match. Unless Pakistan can restrict India within 250 in the first innings, I see no chance for them.

Rana Naved-Ul-Hasan may take some wickets, but I think he's not going to get them without spending lots of runs and bowling many overs.

Pakistan didn't get enough runs on the board. The first session is where the ball was moving quite a bit. After lunch, the bowlers weren't as effective, the batsmen shouldn't have given their wickets away.
There's no point in blaming the umpires for a couple of close calls- i just think the batsmen didn't apply themselves. I'm really getting fed up of Yousuf's lacklustre performance these days and he doesn't seem to bothered about it either. Asim Kamal really played well.
Ganguly needs to be severely reprimanded for slow over rate!
India should score 400+ unless Pakistan bowls really well. I feel Razzaq needs to put in a lot of effort this first innings!

Ameer
March 8, 2005, 05:27 PM
India took the honors in my opinion. Pakistan struggled to get 312 but that will not be hard at all for India with their strong experienced batting.

Pakistan's team is inexperienced, weak and unbalanced. It would be a miracle if they even manage to pull off a draw in these tests.

Well it was a really good begining.I wish Kamal get his century though. he and Inzi saved Pak otherwise they would hav 200 or less. I

Shehwar
March 9, 2005, 02:25 AM
Agreed.....Indians have the batting depth to inflict innings defeat in every single of the three test matches....Infact..when u look at the two sides its a complete mismatch with India not only having a far more experienced side but also the advantage of playing at home.....So I feel a whitewash wud be normal.....However, the game is played on the ground and not on paper and STRANGER THINGS HAVE HAPPENED...!!!.....

Exactly, i agree with Shehwar, for an underdog team you should be able to make most of the chances presented to you and also convert the half chances. That is the only way Pakistan can stay competitive in this series, otherwise its a forgone conclusion!

Indeed! Only 110 runs were added in the last 47 overs (RR 2.3). Indian batsmen pathetically slowed down the run rate right after Sehwag was out.

i thought they'd get to 550 today and declare, and then have enough time to bowl the pakis out.

AsifTheManRahman

they scored at less than three per over today, as opposed to over four an over yesterday. i guess they'll still have enough time to wrap up a win by an inning anyways.

Tendulkar's over cautious batting was a big negetive thing. It's bad for both him and his team.

Shehwar
March 10, 2005, 01:06 PM
But with a 135 run lead with still two days remaining...I'd be very disappointed if I was in Ganguli's shoes finishing the test without a victory.....From here on only rain can save Pakistan...Cheers....

Fazal
March 10, 2005, 01:18 PM
For a draw to happen, rain may be one. The others can be,

2. Ganguly and India's strategy. They had a very slow bowling rate and couldn't finish allotted 90 overs on time. In the third day run rate should have been much higher, and they could have batted allotted 90 overs rejecting bad light. I don't know how bad it was though. And all depends how they and accelerate the run rate in the 4th day and accelerate their bowling rate afterward.

3. Pakistan can play very cautiously during their 2nd innings, which is unlikely though. For example, they can change the batting order and let Asim Kamal bat in the 3th slot, who has better defense than Younis and play defensively from the beginning.

Shehwar
March 10, 2005, 01:26 PM
For Pakistan to play cautiously they need to know how to defend on the first place bro...!!.....Sadly they don't have a Javed Omar like we do...!!...Cheers.....

Pakistan will take the lead to about 100 odd runs... India will chase it with ease.

Pakistan needs to drop Khan... I have no clue why he is even on the team, let alone vice captain. I think they should bring in Shahid Afridi because they desperately need another bowler and he is a decent bowler with stamina.

Butt has turned out to be another Hameed.

Razzaq is definetely not test material.

Sami has failed to perform... I'm sure everyone is suprised LOL. Faking injuries or not, Shoaib is still much better then Sami.

The only positives are Asim, Inzamam, Yousuf and Kaneria.

Pakistan 369/6 at lunch....still within a chance of saving this test match......Akmal 75* and SUBSTANDARD Razzaq 44*......Cheers...

OK grow up guy... you were just talking about how lousy Pakistan is... and now you make a comment like this? I meant substandard as in he's not test material. But if this is not a one time only thing... then maybe he can. He needs to work on his bowling though. It seems he bowls the same thing over and over again... no variation.

if they get akram they'll face a target of 215-230 w/ 35+ overs to go if they they lose thw wickets early then its a draw but w/ india's lineup dont think so

Here is one prediction Pakistan will loose all the tests. Whitwash! Pakistan has no chance. Do you know that one too?

That's because they seem to only care about ODIs... and they use substandard players who are definetly not Test material... like Razzaq and Younis Khan.

Next one hour will deside if IND will win or it will be a draw. Pak need to extend the lead to 200+, but more importantly need bat 20-25 more overs.

alright shelwar... no hard feelings bro.

Pakistan needs to keep this up and a draw will be pretty imminent. Wow, who would have thought that a draw could be possible after day four?

K Akmal is 103 * and still batting :up:

Pak have now 216 run lead. 4 wickets on hand. 49 overs left.

Pak RR is higher than IND RR. Isnt it funny? Also IND dropped atleast three dropped catch today. This is called missed opportunity for India.

Ind finally got the break through. Getting interesting again...

yes. interesting game.Now, lead of almost 250 runs for pak and 34 overs remaining. draw is on the horizon.
250-260 runs in 34 overs unlikely for india that is if the remainig two batsmen goes soon. cricket is unpredictable and so is pakistani team. balaji again proved himself as a star. good for him. who would have thought this late turn around in the game. next game will be more competitive if this pattern follows

It's no more interesting now. It's heading toward a tame draw. All credit goes to Akmal and Abdur Razzaq. But the 9th and last pair also did a good job.
With a lead of 292 Pakistan has declared, but Shehwag could not play as expected from him.

One of the amazing comebacks in Pakistan Cricket. A new star on the horizon, Kamran Akmal.:great:

Yes Akmal has a future. Pak played well for this draw. I only wished that there was a winner.

In this game,

Some players made things happen (Sehwag, Balaji, Akmal , Akmal, Razzaq , Kaneria, etc)

Some players saw things happend ( Tendulkar, Youhana, etc)

And some players just said "what happened, what happened?"

Who are the nomineees for the last catagories?

My selections are Butt, Younis Khan & and ofcourse Mr. Ganguly.

I SIMPLY LOVE STRANGE THINGS !!!

Awesome comeback... it seems India vs Pakistan matches always bring out a new hero for Pakistan. The last time they faced, they brought out Salman and now Akmal as well as Kamal.

A draw it was but an entertaining one... such a good five days of cricket... I wish there was a result.

very depressing for the indians - they should've been able to win this one. all credit to pakistan - those two were exceptional. i mean scoring a century against a team like india on a fifth day of a test match on a green top especially when you're so new to test cricket, and that too so lower down the order, is not a matter of joke. with two tests left in this series (am i right?), this is getting interesting.

completely agree with Asif,......India had the upperhand in at least 90% of the sessions except for the final day. It seemed like they were a toothless attack. ppl were saying Pak had a weak bowling team- but in this case Ind's bowling attack couldn't come up with the goods. Come to imagine, they couldn't get Pak out(allout) in almost 2 complete days(since the end of the third day).
I haven't seen the match- so can't really say who is to be blamed here- but i think Ganguly needs to be a little less conservative in his approach. I still can't understand the mystery of not scoring fast enough in the post lunch session on the 3rd day.
I praise Razzaq more than anyone else for keeping cool and not belching at the bowling which he tends to do. Very mature show by him- shows that he's a thinking cricketer.
I think Ind needs to find a genuine all-rounder, like Shastri, Prabhakar, Kapil!
