This is a very motivating thread. Hopefully BD is going to thrash the world champ...what a day that will be..that means ODI win last year against ozz will not be a fluke.

Go BD go. We all are with you.

Nope and nope on the parentage - 100% anglo, which is just another way of saying 'mongrel north european'.

I work for Northern Territory Oil, and while we are hiring at the moment, we arent hiring very many people, and those we do hire have specialised skills (*).

Oh yeah, and we have no interest in operating in Bangladesh, at least not until the government allows sale of that gas into India.

BanglaCool,

Strictly speaking, this is off topic and I'll move it to private if I have to.

Bangladesh has a reasonable of natural gas in the ground. We're not talking Oman here, but it's likely to be in the tens to hundreds of bcf.

Current government policy is that Bangladesh's gas should be used for power production, rather than exported.

Bangladesh is also a very poor country, and won't pay as much for gas as nearby India will.

Now, if you are interested in having relatively cheap power for a developing country, thats fine.

But from the point of an international oil company (ie me), this means we dont get paid enough for it to be worth the risk of drilling expensive holes and not finding the gas.

Therefore, without a change in policy regarding gas exports (even ignoring the non-trivial fact of corruption in Bangladesh), it isnt worth me being interested in operating there.

Ian, you are pointing the facts. This is test cricket and aussies have to make their run in the wearing 4-5 day pitch. In the subcontinent it is never easy. Bangladesh has got the ideal bowling line-up for this kind of pitch.

Rafiq, Haque & Mashrafee has got the ability to be in the test side of any team in the world. In home conditions they are much better than many other highly rated bowler.

Last 5 batsman need to be patient and if so, there is no reason to be in doubt - we should comfortably win this match.

I dont think Haque or Enamul would play much for Australia, for the same reason MacGill doesnt - from the point of view of the selectors, when you play 3 quicks and a spinner, that man is Warne.

Most anyone else ... yup.

The big difference between this Bangladesh side and the side that ran up a lot of losses is that this side has the horses to carry a bowling attack.

Dont forget Rassel either ... maybe not on the subcontinent, but in England or New Zealand, oh yeah, baby baby bring him on.

Thanks for the information Mate but I'm happy with sunny Queensland weather and my current job

But would love to go to the ALICE some time to visit some old great places like Strehlow Research Centre, Ayers Rock and the Kings Canyon

True. But you do have to admit - babubangla did a good job in compiling all of those stats - and it was very informative. No one actually believed those stats alone were going to get us a win.
