Surrey is a very strong team! But isnt Thorpe in the team? Anyway i think it will be a heck of a fight against Surrey, them being favourites though. But i feel Bangladesh will feel comfortable playing in Surrey cause they have turning wickets.

Sussex won the comp the season before last but really struggled last year despite having one of the best squads around. Chris Adams, Ian Ward and James Kirtley. Also, I don't think that's Dion Nash, it's Christopher Nash, a 22 year old batsman who has lived and played in Sussex all his life.

That was Sussex's first ever championship title for more than 100 years, thanks to Mushtaq Ahmed!

Looks like this is going to be the toughest practice match for BD.

Can anyone tell us about the Hove ground? Seaming? Batting?

Sussex is in great form (http://www.cricinfo.com/link_to_database/NEW/LIVE/frames/SUSSEX_WARWICKS_CC1_10-13MAY2005.html).

I guess left arm pacer Lewry and leggie Mustaq will cause lots of trouble for BD boys. Don't forget about Kirtley!

How long ago did any of our (not current) players face Mushtaq Ahmed before?

I remember we played Murray Goodwin before the 1999 World Cup last, in the Meril International Cup?

This will definitely be a stern test for us...Sussex just convincingly beat (by an innings and some) Warwickshire, the defending champions!!! They are in red hot form. Here is the BBC match report (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/counties/4539645.stm)

not current?? what do you mean :-/

anyway, I think among current players only Golla and Sumon faced Mushtaq Ahmed, at 1998 Independance cup.

match link (http://www.cricinfo.com/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/1997-98/OD_TOURNEYS/SJIC/BDESH_PAK_SJIC_ODI3_12JAN1998.html)

Golla scored 17 out of 43 balls before getting bowled by Mushtaq Ahmed (IIRC, he attepted a big sweep). Sumon didn't give him his wicket, but fell only for 15 (36 balls), attempting to clear Saqlain over mid-on (again, iirc)

edit: Cricinfo StatsGuru confirms that it's the only match he played against us (http://statserver.cricket.org/guru?sdb=player;playerid=1946;class=odiplayer;filt er=basic;team=0;opposition=BDESH;notopposition=0;s eason=0;homeaway=0;continent=0;country=0;notcountr y=0;groundid=0;startdefault=1989-03-23;start=1989-03-23;enddefault=2003-10-03;end=2003-10-03;tourneyid=0;finals=0;daynight=0;toss=0;schedule dovers=0;scheduleddays=0;innings=0;result=0;follow on=0;seriesresult=0;captain=0;keeper=0;dnp=0;recen t=;runslow=;runshigh=;batposition=0;dismissal=0;vi ewtype=bow_list;bowposition=0;ballslow=;ballshigh= ;bpof=0;overslow=;overshigh=;conclow=;conchigh=;wi cketslow=;wicketshigh=;dismissalslow=;dismissalshi gh=;caughtlow=;caughthigh=;caughttype=0;stumpedlow =;stumpedhigh=;csearch=;submit=1;.cgifields=viewty pe)

If a county can beat Bangladesh what hope do we have against full English team.

Will be interesting to see how bangladesh does because Sussex look very strong stat wise.

First of all, the chance having a result out of this three day game is very slim. Even though Warwickshire lost their game in three days by an innings, I beleive our boys are good enough to hang in there if things go bad.

Secondly, Sussex is a very good team with England discards like Adams and Kirtley and ex-internationals like Goodwin and Mustaq.

Most importantly, their players seem to be in good forms whereas most English test batters are struggling at this point.

So, I don't think a bad show against Sussex will mean we will be buldozed by England. I am hoping our boys will learn a lot from this game.

I think Navid is under contract with PCB, So he is off to WI. In that case he will not be playing.

bring them on. if they got mushtaq Bd got rafiq and enamul. If there is turn on the wicket I hope Bd will play enamul and see how he gets on.

But enamul is the trump card. England traditionally have weakness against spinners. As Rafiq is a must it is utmost important to find out how enamul plays in practice games. If he comes good, Bd can go in with 2 pacers with aftab filling in 3rd seamer position

Nothing to be afraid off caz all our top-orders got runs as they proven they are in form now , they deserve to have some rests as well before the match in Lord's . So , if it's not the full play which will be in favour for us , most of the 3 days matches are draw anyway .

Dude, you are not getting it, are you? Playing BU amatures was nothing but a warm up. Yes, our players did a pretty good job against them, but now it is time to play big boys.

Once again we know that this is the time to play the big boys but how can ya think a team from number 10th can have a victory with someone having 2nd rank in test ranking . England should worry about Bangladeshis at all now they got Ashes to think about mate . Last 20 years England haven't had a single Ashes cup don't think they will get it this time too . Think about the Ashes that will be worth your time and thinking about Bangladesh to beat England not in another 5 years . So who cares ? We know the results already ..... also to beat the big boys Aussies are coming watch out . Aussie Aussie Ausie ........... oi ........... oi .......... oi ......

You're really full of $hít

With "time to play big boys" he probably meant that we need to practice against professional FC players before playing tests.

The Hove pitches are usually pretty good. Batting won't be all that hard as far as the pitch goes, much better than Headingley for example. However, the opposition bowling and batting will be much better so we'll have to raise our game a little bit.

BaM, sorry, I did not mean to get personal with you and please don't take it that way.

In case you have not noticed, most of the BU players are from second strings of county teams. It is nice to start the tour against a team like that since the condition over there is very alien to our players and players made the best use of this game. But now BD has to raise their game before they start playing international matches.

Also, as Whatmore said, results are not important this tour. What is important is how our boys apply themselves in challenging situations.
