Default AGHHH

I thought the game was tomorrow. I need BD to do well for my confidence tomorrow. I gotta get to the ground and open at 8am and it's the first time i've batted for a while. Although for school i got 17* which boosts my school average to 60.00 although you don't want to hear this

Default BD wins toss and elects to field first

Rafique is left out. I wonder if he is not going to get a chance to play in the real matches, then why did the selectors pick him for the South Africa tour?

The Bangladesh line up:

1) Golla
2) Rokon
3) Sumon
4) Sanwar
5) Tushar
6) Kapali
7) Pilot
8) Sujon
9) Tapash
10) Monju
11) Talha

Sadly, I see a 500 run first innings comming up from SA

We need more of this:

End of over 14 (maiden) South Africa 56/0
Manjural Islam 6-2-16-0 - Snake End
GC Smith 26* (44b 3x4) HH Gibbs 27* (41b 3x4 1x6)

13.6 Manjural Islam to Gibbs, no run, left alone through to the keeper
13.5 Manjural Islam to Gibbs, no run, left alone through to the keeper
13.4 Manjural Islam to Gibbs, no run
13.3 Manjural Islam to Gibbs, no run
13.2 Manjural Islam to Gibbs, no run, left alone
13.1 Manjural Islam to Gibbs, no run, forward def

Default Its back to square 1 again

Remember Asian test championship? - The two matches against Pakistan and Sri Lanka that Bangladesh participated in?

That was held last year and so far, South Africa are 273/1 in 64 overs - which suggests that we are back to where we started from.

Only that time, we had the excuse of having old players those who are now going to play for Bangladesh A in the Challenger trophy at our helm.

Default MAshallah

Poor Monju, even Sanwar gets wickets.
363 for 2 after 87 overs.
Tapash and SANWAR took wickets. As 'expected' the selectors sent in BOTH KAPALI and RAFIQUE. Yet, we have to use Sanwar to bowl. Looking at the bowling card, isn't it obvious that we could have played with either of them. Now, we have both so our batting will be one man short. Dear selectors, this is not a one day match, this is a test match. The idea is to SCORE runs - DUH.

Manju bechara, looks like at least he is getting some respect from the South Africans. We need the two new guys to bowl straight and to the wicket.

Those watching the match - what's your thought on the bowlers ?

SOmeone mentioned Kapali and Akram on same breath - Is Kapali a motu too ?

No, Kapali isnt fat. I think the person's point was to magnify the type of mistakes Cricinfo makes.

You are right Tehsin bhai, we dont need two specialist spinners in South Africa, especially since Sanwar can do a useful spinners job himself. We should have had one more batsman because our top order looks really weak now. If Rokon gets out cheaply which we can expect him to, Sumon will be pretty much doing an openers job. This is a big mistake. We are going to lose the runs he would have made against an older ball and tired bowlers by making him face the new ball. His style is clearly not suited to opening an innings. But thats what he will most likely be doing because I expect atleast one of our openers if not both to be out in the first 5 overs.

Default Not thinking in terms of reality - in dreams

What if Kapali opens? He seemed good enough by the selectors and team management to let him bat at number four in a couple of one dayers and also seemed Ok for them to let him bat at number five on one occassion.

Default Thinking in terms of reality

Monju is the best bowler by far today
. Wanna know why? He is the most regular bowler that we have since our 2nd Test match.

This is Talha's only 3rd Test match.

Tapash, Rafique and Kapali's only 2nd Test match.

Besides, I think that Sanwar uses his head while bowling - kinda like bowler Durjoy. Remember that Durjoy is only a batsman who could bowl a bit, and yet he was chosen ahead of other spin bowlers at times because he also used to use his head along with a full season of bowling practice at the domestic matches.

And in case of using heads, Kapali and Rafique had not tried or may be failed to use their heads properly.

After following the match today closely, I have noticed something - the bowlers are really short of match practice or something. And yet, they shouldn't have been short of match practice - except for Rafique, all the other bowlers have played in the one day series.

Proof of short of match practice: they could not bowl at a particular line and length continuously for at least 5 continuous overs.

71 from Rokon!!! Wow! Great effort. They took the test to 4th day. This is a good sign of fighting spirit. Hopefully the next test will be even better.

Default What you are seeing

What you are seeing in this test is the REAL Bangladesh without the bowling ofcourse.
We have what it takes to score 200 in every single test and if our bowlers were fit and bowling with heart, we'd have the other teams folding around 300-400, maybe a few on either side.
What we have been missing is the maturity (Rokon showed that today and Sanwar is moving on from practice matches) and look like the players took a right steo in that direction today.

Default commendable performance by BD

Scoring 200 plus and folding opponent around 300/400,that is our real strength,we all know that,thats all we all expect. finally they are getting some fighting spirit back.

Hopefully this is the turning point!!
