Not a bad outing. Crickinfo bulletin did not include any description of UWI XI's batting. Wanted to get an idea whether the SA bowlers were serious.

ps:apology if this has been posted already.

nice going - Bashar is just ideally suited for calypso cricket :)

It's very good for him to score against SA before the England tour. This will give him more confidence as he was not doing 100% in the NCL.

At that stage, the Vice-Chancellor's X1 were 250 for five with Bangladesh's Habibul Bashar not out on 77 and man of the moment and skipper Ridley Jacobs, unbeaten on 28.

This was in response to the visitors' handsome total of 396 for five declared.

Bashar's entertaining innings came in 121 minutes from 86 balls and contained 15 fours.

I wonder how much he wud have scored if there was more time

I just don't see the reason why Bangladesh captain is playing the game. Seems S Dhawan (an U19 player) is representing India!!

Is the match a practice match only or a fund raiser for tsunami affected people? Cricinfo reported that only a practice match.

what is this VICE CHANCELLOR? and what is habibul bashar doing in it? i dont get it. guess i missed something. but nevertheless, a good innings.

April 18, 2005, 05:47 AM
Bashar is very fond of The West Indies.
The reason is obvious- considering his attacking style of play.
After he scored a century in the WI tour he said that it was always his dream to score a century in The West Indies as he likes their cricket so much.
True that there was no real need for him to go and play in the WI university team, but hey- give the man a break! He has to carry the duty of being the skipper and the senior batsman of the team. He needs to enjoy himself once in a while.
My guess is- Bashar could not resist the opportunity playing in WI when the offer came. He has done that in good style! 15 boundaries in the knock of 77! No wonder he loves the WI cricket!

April 18, 2005, 06:53 AM
Awesome ! :up:

April 18, 2005, 07:09 AM
yeah, let the guy play there if he wants.
playing for bangladesh must be like a constant headache. if bashar can get away from that, i'm all for it, whether it's before an 'important' series or not. it's stupid for people to want him to stay with bangladesh every second of his life.

But i agree with the other replys to this post, whats he doing in the west indies?

April 18, 2005, 08:50 AM
*Sigh* ...stop complaining about him being over there ppl...there is nothing wrong with it... besides him playing that innings promotes a more positive image of our cricket!!

Yea I agree with Hasib 100%. Good knock by Bashar.

But my curious mind is killing me, what is he doing there anyway.:-/

April 18, 2005, 09:33 AM
kool stuff.

btw - what's he doing in the WI?

April 18, 2005, 09:43 AM
the main thing is, he got to practice against a better bowling side then BD bowlers and moreover practice was right in the middle not in the nets. This should do him a world of good.

GREAT JOB Bashar!!!

April 18, 2005, 10:02 AM
:clap: men this is a real great job .

If that is the case why BCB stopped our players from participating NCL? If the practice in the middle is so important Baher and co. could play few more round of NCL which would be more helpful for BD cricket than playing for WI uni selection.

About quality of bowling .. just check how many overs the main bowlers (e.g., Ntini) bowled in the match.

This is just an another unprofessional act of BCB to permit Basher to travel WI for such game. BTW WI universities invites plyers from other countries for this kind of matches each year. Guess who were the last time ...

Two Kenyans!

Hopefully Basher does something like that agianst the English. :up: !!!

April 18, 2005, 11:49 AM
superb batting by Bashar!:cool:.. but he need 2 carry this form in England:clap:

April 18, 2005, 03:47 PM
way to go BASHAR I too hope he belts the English bowling too all parts of the ground

April 18, 2005, 04:01 PM
This is very good for bashar. Gives him more first class experience against better teams.

April 18, 2005, 04:23 PM
so the WI cricketers are so uncompetitive that they had to hire a Bangladeshi to give their guests some match practice? hmm...they probably still have that near loss in the first test bothering them in their dreams...

April 18, 2005, 08:17 PM
Since when was playing in NCL is equivelant to playing in a fireign condition aginst a top-class foreign opponent?

So what 2 kenyan played in this match last year?
So what some unknown player represented India?
So what if Bashar played for BD?

Since when was Bashar such a high profile player representing such a high-profile team that he can't play in a practice match, representing his country?

We are not even half way there to where you are right now, to feel as cocky as you think.

Did you even care to bother to look at the opponent they played?

Considering the opponent, the match wasn't even one-sided.

April 18, 2005, 08:33 PM
Good stuff... I hope he gives it to the Poms as well.

April 18, 2005, 08:52 PM
our captain made us proud. he proved that we have players who can play. good job captain now keep it up. open the flood gate of runs in england.

April 19, 2005, 05:48 AM
S.Dhawan was the man of the tournament in the U-19 world cup held last year. His performance shows that he is a capable batsman against a senior test bowling side as well.

He's getting in some important match practice against decent bowling.
