View Full Version : Match Thread: Nafis v Nazmul, OD3 (Simulation)

April 4, 2005, 07:00 PM
Hello and welcome to Toronto for the third game in the one-day series to be played between Team Nafis and Team Nazmul. News is Team Nafis have won the toss and elected to bat. Both teams have stuck with the same XI they've used the whole series. The pitch is a bit uneven but hard so there might be some unpredictable bounce but the ball should come onto the bat nicely. It's a good competitive wicket.

The players are in the middle ready to go

LateCut has the ball in hand as Habibul_fan takes strike

April 4, 2005, 07:03 PM

0.3 LateCut to Habibul_fan, OUT, Gone! The ball just moves away a little off the seam, Hfan pushes at it and edges the ball low to the right of the keeper who takes a good catch. Perfect start

Habibul_fan c:Oracle b:LateCut 0(3)

April 4, 2005, 07:08 PM

1.5 Shaoun to MasterBlaster, OUT, Another one! Good length outside off, MB doesn't move his feet and tries to wack it through the covers, only manages to chop it onto his stumps. Team Nazmul shocking the openers.

MasterBlaster b:Shaoun 11(6)

April 4, 2005, 07:10 PM
1.6 Shaoun to Ehsan, one run, Dropped! First ball and he goes for it outside off, the ball takes the top edge and flies down to Fazal at third man who never looked confident in taking the catch. Ehsan can make them pay for that error

April 4, 2005, 07:14 PM
We have dropped 'Sehwag' Ehsan :(

April 4, 2005, 07:22 PM

4.2 LateCut to Mueid, OUT, The ball pitches ouside off and moves in off the seam, Mueid shoulders arms and gets struck on the back pad outside the line, 50-50 decision ball possibly missing off but Patel raises the finger

3/33 off 5 (Ehsan 6* Bdmoderator 1* LateCut 2/14)RR=6.6

April 4, 2005, 07:28 PM
5.6 TAIF to Ehsan, one run, dropped again! Short and at the body, Ehsan tries to pull but it gets the back of the bat and flies over the slip cordon, Fazal makes a lot of ground and takes a fine catch but the ball falls out when his elbows hit the ground. Fazal drops Ehsan for a second time

April 4, 2005, 07:41 PM
3/56 off 10 (Bdmoderator 9* Ehsan 20*)RR=5.6

Good job Team Namzul. We are coming back from that near draw (it was a loss in the end) and playing awesome.

April 4, 2005, 07:46 PM
11.6 LateCut to Bdmoderator, OUT, Short and wide should have been put away but cuts it straight to backward point. Fazal is relieved that he held onto one

Bdmoderator c:Fazal b:LateCut 13(27)

April 4, 2005, 07:58 PM
Shaky start. All the players look rusty due to the long break we had. We better start taking our responsibilites now before things get even worse.

April 4, 2005, 08:02 PM
4/83 off 15 (CarteBlanche 3* Ehsan 35*)RR=5.47

April 4, 2005, 08:15 PM
19.3 Shaoun to Radicalsami, no run, dropped! Sami drives and edges straight to Aka at second slip who puts it down

April 4, 2005, 08:20 PM
5/97 off 20 (Ehsan 44* Shaoun 2/23)RR=4.85

19.6 Shaoun to Radicalsami, OUT, Good quick bouncer, Sami tries to fend it off but the ball balloons off the gloves into the cordon, Aka makes up for his previous error

April 4, 2005, 08:43 PM
can we get the next update plz

April 4, 2005, 08:53 PM
Please tell me it will be

25 Tintin to Ehsan, OUT!!!, Charges down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and smashes it but somehow aka (or any other player) catches the ball near the boundery. A catch very similar to Vasbert Drakes WC03 catch that got DAvidson out.

April 4, 2005, 09:00 PM
30.5 TAIF to Ehsan, SIX, Hundred! Just short of a length, Ehsan gets into position quickly and hits it hard and flat over the midwicket fence, an amazing innings and the first one-day century in simulation history. Take a bow!

Ehsan not out 103 (86b 8x4 5x6)

April 4, 2005, 09:03 PM

30.6 TAIF to Ehsan, OUT, One pull too many, this time the ball was outside off, bottom edge and the ball thunders into legstump. Dangerman goes!

Ehsan b:TAIF 103(87)

April 4, 2005, 09:11 PM
Oops! Should have stayed till we cross 200. Nevertheless it was a very good ball by Taif.

April 4, 2005, 09:20 PM

36.4 Fazal to Shovon13, OUT, Very well bowled, beaten him in the flight, Shovon just pushed the ball back to the bowler

Buddy! Its EHSAN. :)

April 4, 2005, 09:30 PM
Encouraging innings from Shovon. Our tailenders need to keep their cool and extend the score to around 250-260. Now, boys thats your target, jump on. :)

Bourny b:LateCut 24(23)

April 4, 2005, 09:43 PM

40.5 LateCut to Zephaniah, OUT, Slower ball, full and straight, Zephaniah tries to smash it down the ground but hits it straight back to the bowler. That's five for LateCut

Zephaniah c & b:LateCut 5(14)

April 4, 2005, 09:59 PM

Very achievable target. Well done team Nazmul.

Lets now bat responsibly.

:joy:: bravo:

April 4, 2005, 10:41 PM
wow!! awesome hundred by ehsan! he scored almost half of our score by himself. although i think we easily could've crossed 280, 251 is still big enough for our bowlers.

aww...looks like i missed out on a 50. lol..

April 4, 2005, 10:57 PM
The players are in the centre now.
Bourny has been given the new ball and Aka asks for centre

April 4, 2005, 11:06 PM

1.3 Hasib to Jubaitca, OUT, Not so convinsing, Hasib bowling very wide on the crease, the angle making it very difficult for LBW's, Jubaitca is trapped on the crease trying to play around his pad, ball possibly missing leg but given out without troubling the scorers

Jubaitca lbw b:Hasib 0(8)

April 4, 2005, 11:17 PM

The captain strolls to the crease

So Team Nafis win by 83 runs and go to the top of the table while Team Nazmul have to go back to the drawing board and try and find a way they can be a threat in the four-dayer.

There were 3 notable performances today, Shovon took 3/11 with the ball and hit 45 with the bat, LateCut took the first one day five-for in the BCS Series history but you can't go past Ehsan's swashbuckling hundred, dropped twice before 7 he made the bowlers pay and brought up his maiden one day century with a six.

Table after 3 matches
Nafis 10
Aftab 6
Nazmul 0

April 5, 2005, 06:28 PM
:umm: how come we are not winning any matches.

April 5, 2005, 06:33 PM
how come we are not winning any matches.

as i said in a previous thread- I have some issues with the umpires, but our team is way younger than the competitiors-so it is wait and learn i guess:)

and yes, Sakin, you could open, next time. We need a win.:(
