Default Let us not forget Mashrafee and Rafique



Hat's off to Ashraful and Bashar for the famous victory. But let us not forget the contributioon of Mashrafee and Rafique for their stinging bowling. Tapash as well. Although he conceeded more runs then we would have liked, he picked up wickets every time Aus started to consolidate. If Aus had more wickets in hand they would have scored more than 280. Had Rafique failed to keep it tight, they would have scored 270+. If Mashrafee did not pick up Gilchrist early - who kknows what could have happened. What about Rafique and Aftab keeping their composer at the death of the innings? Actually my men of the match was the whole team. Not taking any thing away from Ashraful.

Tapash as well
Tapash was very ordinary. He bowled reasonable at the start. If you bowl full and straight to Ponting early on you will always have a chance and Tapash got his man. But after Hayden hit him for six he hardly put one ball where it should have gone. Too short, followed by too wide followed by a fulltoss and a no-ball in there as well. Tapash bowled very poorly after about his fifth over. Martyn and Clarke weren't undone by good bowling, they both threw their wickets away and the 67 runs he went for showed it and it could have been a lot worse with the front-foot problems.

Rafique bowled very very well considering the field settings and Mashrafe was unlucky to pick up only 1 wicket. Rafique kept it together when Australia were looking to consolidate and then press on but he kept it tight and didn't give the Australians an inch. Mashrafe made life very difficult in the opening overs and took advantage of the pitch.

I think Mashrafe has learned a lot since making his debut (even if he hasn't played that much). This was evident at the death as Tapash and Nazmul were trying too much. Nazmul in particular, he tried for that yorker and put too much in. The result was half a dozen fulltosses which at least three got dispatched to the boundary. Then Mashrafe came on and the experience was obvious as he hit the deck hard and persisted with line and length. Hussey is a class player and will always find ways to score but I thought Mashrafe bowled very well throughout.

If Mashrafe got complacent early on or fell into the same traps as Nazmul and Tapash or if Rafique decided that he'd use the field Bashar set and just let them score singles regularly then Australia would have got around 300 which would definately have been too much for our batsmen.

So the 67 poor balls he bowled is irrelevant?

One of the best ball in the innings . We can't forget Mashrafe and Rafique but we also have to add Aftab ( the match winner ) and Ashraful ( Player of the year 2004 ) .

I think this thread was started on the following grounds
"We can't forget Aftab and Ashraful but we also have to add Mashrafe and Rafique"

A big part of the win was that Bangladesh's best bowlers (Mashrafee and Rafique) - out-bowled Australia's best bowlers (McGrath and Gillespie) AND Bangladesh's second string (Tapash, Aftab and Nazmul) outbowled Australia's second string (Kaspa, Hogg, Clarke).

It was a team effort ... to quote some Ricky Ponting bloke (who apparently watched the game pretty closely)

"I'm a little bit worried. If you lose to Bangladesh, you should be a little bit worried. It is now up to us to lift things up. Tomorrow (Sunday) becomes a really big game for us.

"If you don't see a better team tomorrow, and we don't do little things better tomorrow, we will have more reason to worry."

"We are not playing well. Bangladesh have got those runs pretty easy today and they controlled the game through the middle of their innings. That is a bit of a worry."

"It is not just the bowlers. Our batsman should have made more than 249 against Bangladesh as well and it turned out not to be enough runs. "
