News 1: Watch out for Bangladesh, Pollock warns

Proteas should not underestimate giant-killers during World Cup
TELFORD VICE
Published: 2011/01/14 07:44:17 AM

INDIA and England are SA’s biggest rivals in the group stage of the Cricket World Cup next month, but the Proteas will also need to be wary of minnows Bangladesh.

"Don’t underestimate them as a unit," Shaun Pollock said yesterday. "They’ll be playing on their home grounds with the crowd fully behind them. They’ll want to play as well as they can, and they’re certain to lift their game to new heights due to the support they will get."

Pollock’s warning may seem alarmist considering Bangladesh’s modest standing in world cricket. But the former SA all-rounder was part of the team that lost a Super Eights match to the Asians by 67 runs in Guyana at the 2007 World Cup. In the 1999 World Cup, Bangladesh beat Pakistan. India came unstuck against them in 2007 in the loss that dumped the heavyweights out of the tournament.

This year, the giant-killers come up against India in the opening match of the World Cup in Mirpur on February 19.

"India have a tricky one against them first up, and SA’s trip there will be difficult as well," Pollock said.

The Proteas take on the Tigers in Mirpur on March 19 in the last of their six Group B matches. Should Graeme Smith’s team have secured a top-four finish by then, the result will be irrelevant. But the pressure will be on if SA need a win to advance.

Bangladesh play a plucky, athletic brand of cricket that depends on the sum of the parts of their team rather than emphatic individual performances. They have won just five of their 20 World Cup matches to date, but they have played all of those games in foreign conditions.

News 2 : Andy Flower (England's Coach) about Bangladesh Match:

Source: http://blogs.bettor.com/Andy-Flower-...England-a51973

"I'm not sure where we're rated in one-day internationals but I think the brand of cricket we're playing, we've got a chance," added Flower. "We'll have to switch on to the sub-continent conditions and thrive very quickly. Even the Bangladesh conditions will be very tricky - they've just beaten New Zealand 4-0.That's going to be a tricky match in itself."

The English team is placed in Group B for the tournament where, they have to overcome two hosts India and Bangladesh at home in their conditions.

I don't fully agree with you. If you just consider recent NZ series, Shakib was key performer. But everyone in the team supported him, other bowlers too brought break through on the important times of the matches.

If you consider other series including Recent Zim series, you'll find it as team performance.

Our only win against England in Bristol came as a team performance too, our top scorers was Imrul 76, Zahurul 40, shakib only scored 1 in that match.
Then all five bowlers mash,shakib,razzak,shafi,rubel all took 2 wickets each. So that was a team effort.

If you look Eng in BD 2010 that too was team performance, though we didn't won against 13 men (11+2). Our closest match (2nd match in Dhaka, that Morgan stole from us) there Rahim 76, Kayes 63,Shakib took 3 wickets and scored only 14 runs.

I think the Journalist isn't all that wrong. It's true that our chances of winning increases if TIK/Shak plays their best, but if you look at our wins, you willl see that there are crucial contributions by many others without which it wont be possible to win.

They are dont worry.. just read some comments on cricinfo on the article of Shevhag saying he is ready for the world cups... I am surprised how ignorant some of the Indian supporters are. They just cannot believe still that they lost to Bangladesh and for that reason, Bangladesh is their enemy number 1 yet they believe that Bangladesh can NEVER beat India.. as to how BD beat NZ, England or Zimbabwe,, they don't even want to discuss it. They just outright think that india will win with 1000 run difference and one Sachin can score 500 runs.. ( well a bit exaggeration on my part)

Agreed Bangladesh is a good side. Overconfident supporters are everywhere (more in India being a big country) but you can't generalize all Indian supporters are ignorant .... such. such.

BD can beat any team on their day but its just as you believe completely in your team we believe completely in our team so we claim BD will not beat India again , don't read too much in to it and start claiming BD will definitely beat India( people are already doing in this forum)

Believe me when I say this that if Bangladesh did not won that match against us in the World Cup , no media will even mention the name Bangladesh in the press conference of Indian players, is that you want? take pleasure you are being considered as serious threat.Being considered as rival is honor than being ignored

And finally Please grow thick skin. when we are not so good team in the recent past I used to enjoy Aus, Eng players claiming that they will beat India because the joy is in proving them wrong.

Here is some inspiration against India. They have not allowed us to play a test series in their soil ever since we got test status. It is not profitable for them. We are hopeless. Tamim was not good enough for their IPL. We need to come strong and hard in all departments. It is time to show we have quality players and we are very good as a team. In the past we beat test teams, however very next game we lost to an associate team. It is not showing strong. Strong is beating the best and stay there.

News 4 : Ireland's Niall O'Brien targets upsets at World Cup

Source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cric...re/9367295.stm

O'Brien told BBC Look East: "We've had good success [in World Cups] in the past so we're looking forward to it.

"The format has changed so us minnows have a smaller chance of going through. But we're targeting a couple of teams and we need two or three wins."

From above two news we can see Ireland specifically targeted Bangladesh Match. I know comments will come "this time we are playing in our backyard and Ire doesn't got a chance"

But one good thing about Ireland is they just target few opponents and practice according to game plan, I am sure they targeted Pakistan in 2007 WC group match, then once they went to super 8, someone told "we want to win Bangladesh match"

My point is they always target Bangladesh thinking their easiest opponent, does enough homework on our players psychology instead of doing homework for each and every opponent. One good example of that was 2nd last T20 WC where we were planning to beat India but in next match we lost to Ire, Ire though didn't win any other match in that tournament.

Another Example, in our last British Island tour, Ireland start their home work at the time match against them was scheduled, someone that time told " we want to win that match taking advantage of our home condition", as a result they won the first match.

They knows Our weakness very well. We need to take them seriously too ..

Just an Astrologer prediction, believe it or not, up-to you , for me good to read this kind of prediction though I don't believe.

" South Africa is predicted as one of the most unlucky teams in group B, and according to Mr. Bandara’s prediction there is a chance that they suffer a loss in the hands of either Bangladesh or Ireland in the group stage."

He also predicted India Vs Srilanka Semifinal.

the astrologist have accurately predicted the 2004 Tsunami and the end of civil war in Sri Lanka in the past.

It was so painful to watch BD losing the match against Ire yesterday on star cricket ...

I dont know, why they always show the matches we lost? A day before they were showing BD-NZ old match in Nz, that we lost.
