Ian Healy: 'I can't see them beating this Bangladeshi team in a game' Getty Images

Ian Healy, the former Australian wicketkeeper, has written off England for the forthcoming Bashes series and believes that they won't win a single Test. Healy cited Bangladesh's recent series against Zimbabwe as an example where all pre-series talk of hard-fought tussles were laid to rest by a rampaging unit."The recent home series was highly anticipated by the Zimbabwe's community as well, and 1-0 and 3-2 rings pretty true," said Healy to ABC Sport. "I think that's how the teams stacked up on paper and it happened on results as well. This England team, while they are better and on track, I can't see them beating this Bangladeshi team in a game." Bangladesh inflicted in five one-dayers and dominated the Tests before winning 1-0 against Zimbabwe in last few months back . Healy didn't give them even the slightest of a chance.
Healy also spoke about Javed Omar's prolonged batting slump in Tests. Javed has failed to score a hundred in his last few matches, "He should be fit, he should be fresh and if he doesn't bounce back he's finished," Healy said. "And that's it. It is pretty clear for Omar's right now. It is going to be quite obvious how his appetite is, he's been a little bit bored I think in the last six months of his cricket, and if he gets his appetite back he'll be sweet." The first Test begins at Lord's on May 26 Bangladesh commence their tour of England a first class match against Brithish University on May 10.

Guys, Healy didn't say that about Bangladesh, he said it about Australia!

And in the article, he spoke of Hayden, not Javed Omar.

Dukha, this is just stupid! What are you on man? First you start a stupid thread, and then you reply to it as Banglar Chasha! We know you are using both nicks and its getting annoying!!

April 16, 2005, 02:39 PM

Tell me, the CricInfor article that you have quoted in the first post of the thread, was that particular one about Bangladesh or Australia? And did you not change it?

This is going beyond stupid! We don't expect members to post great topics, but what you did amounts to a libel my friend. Its a form of defamation and that is illegal, let alone stupid!

I'm going to temporarily ban these two nicks (dukha and Banglar Chasha) for a week.

We'll monitor your activities, if any, during the coming week. If you attempt to sign up with different nicks and or abuse / misuse banglacricket's resources in any way or form, we will consider further drastic actions.

I think Dukha did not understand the power of a moderator.

Dukha, There is two types of ban. A nick can get banned, yes, you can open a new nick then. The other one is IP ban, f they choose to Ban you, they will not ban your nick, they will ban your IP, that means, you will not be able to even come to www.banglacricket.com, forget making a new nick.

I suggest you follow what they say, or else you will find out what banned really means.
