View Full Version : Rana doing his bit, Ash gets a Pheifer

Two half centuries in the last match, a big maiden centry (151) in this round. Plus the occasional wicket. Good on him. As I had mentioned in an article, he has to make the test side as a batting all-rounder, not the other way around. Weak bowling or not, it still tells you he's middling the ball.

Also Ashraful bagged a Michelle! Bowled 20 overs too. Now he needs to score the runs. Talha got 4 wickets too. Good captaincy by chacha as he did not do the selfish thing and bowl himself, rather sticking with his "hot" bowlers. :)

Masree was rested as was Tapash. Rafique still no where to be found! We need this guy to get some sort of match fitness. In England, he has to perform the containment role at one end while Masree, Tapash at al try to get wickets. (see zillions of posts from Sham & me on why SLAs will have a tough time in the early English summer).

Bashar, Golla,Tushar Imran & Pilot disappoint.

No Shahadat Hossain? No Shahriar Imtiaz? No Sanwar? Surprised that some of the A-team guys are not able to break into the NCL sides.

Tushar played and got a duck. Good innings from Rana.. Chittagong have a lot of injuries and looks like they aren't going to offer much resistance. I wonder when Bashar is going to have a good innings - why can't he score?

bashar has a reputation of screwing up in domestic matches and then going on to score big in international matches :)

This is true.He was almost excluded form the side that played the very first test based on his domestice performance. After a lot of crying foul from the media he was included and made good.

bashar had done well in fc matches featuring bangladesh and other foreign teams before that first test.

Ash bags a Michelle eh? Good one. Didn't get it at first, and then reread the title of the thread and it made good sense! :)

Anyone knows about the situation of Taposh? Is he injured or playing but not making much significant impact?

AsifTheManRahman
March 20, 2005, 09:58 PM
tapash isn't making a big impact - not as big as i'd have expected him to. he's doing ok with the bat though.

Why no Shahadat or Shahriar Imtiaz in the league. It is the place where they should get experience! :info:

Rana is in excellent form which is great news because he is one of a select few to have played in england before, innsha allah he continues this rich vein of form in to the england tour.

Looks like 'Bradmansque'. Only if his batting had appeared as technically sound as his stats suggest!

All our batsmen are getting Pheifers and our bowlers are getting tons, what's going on?

HA HA!

Taposh, Rana, Mashrafee even Talha kicking some booties. Rafiq is missing out the bonanza.

I think exposure to great bowling in international level has helped them (not Talha) play the BD league bowlers easily.

Now, why doesn't that help our batsmen. Or do they have Brian Lara syndrom?

Thanks for the early bird report.

May be the captainship experience experiment in Duleep trophy has worked after all.

If so

then

all that pain is worth it.

Thanks Fwullah. Perhaps I should start calling you Fahmida :) Typing fwullah keeps reminding me of this old BTV parody song "ataullah" (yes I'm somewhat dating myself). :_

I think it has more to do with the quality of the opposition. Asraful, and for that matter most of our batsmen, will struggle to score consistently against quality bowling.

As for Rana ------------------ He hardly get wickets in the longer version. Abdur Razzaq regularly outshines him as a bowler in NCL. So anybody hoping that he can be considered an allrounder in the longer version is simply not taking notice. I guess, someone has advised him to concentrate on his batting.

No one doubts that the bowling he is facing are inferior.

The crux of my argument is:
He has faced those inferior bowlers all his life and never had consecutive centuries. Actually he goes to sleep for a few weeks after each century.
Whats happenning could be a new dawn for him. I really really hope that. I am just pointing to one of the possible reasons for his awakenning. (with a big if)

Yeah, he may be facing a pretty weak bowling attack but back to back centuries is good from Ashraful. You don't pick the opposition you play, you just have to go out there and do your thing, and his performances so far in three games in the NCL this season are quite impressive, even by his standards.

I am also encouraged by Talha's bowling. Again, we shouldn't read too much into it because its against poor opposition, but he is taking wickets and that is a good thing!

Basher should just start sending in Rana as Khulna's openner just to test him out against better bowling.

Golam Rahman's brother and Rajin Saleh's brother scores centuries.

For Sylhet there were 3 centries and 2 half centruries, but Alok scored only 5.

Chacha is a great man. I hope he takes over the BCCB someday.

Because our batsman doesn't get enough exposure to high quality bowling at International level. They get out almost right after arriving in the middle, and later tail-enders have to face the quality bowling for longer period of time.
