I feel sorry for the boys after a harrowing 3 day trip, seems that they will be suffering from jet lag, they will lose time as they will be in a different time zone and it will take them at least 2 days to adjust. They will not feel OK until after the first ODI. Hope that the get a practice match to wake them up.

The trick to get over jet lag fast is not to sleep during day time (most people do the opposite!). You will feel miserable on your first day, but it should not take you longer than two days to get over jet lag if you can resist sleeping in daytime.

Also, it's not like they are going all the way back to Bangladesh, 6 hrs difference should be easier to handle.

It should be easier for our boys anyway as they are young and athletic.

BD has the mental edge though. Flying high from the WI tour. That may be enough to pull this off. The first match is very important and BD must fire and take it.
i don't think their bowling is better than ours...shakib and naeem will be tough to handle if they haven't improved against spin. and i fully back rasel to come good. and if rubel finds his line and length, goodbye. rainsford won't trouble us, and chiggy will do the same. utseya averages 49 against us in 24 games, ray price and mupariwa are the only threats, neutralize them and 270+ scores should be on the card every game.

bating wise, we bat quite deep. tamim, junaid have been fairly solid of late. shak is always there, rahim has improved his game, riyad and naeem are sensible batters down the order, and you have ash, who on his day can do things few batsmen the world over can. if he scores steady fifties, we should be good.

You haven't learnt anything from the two loss at home. Or are you blaming it on Ash's captaincy?

According to Utpul Shuvro, Siddons is not happy with Sakib's suicidal outs in last three matches. He is unhappy with other batsmen too for not following game plan for the T20I.

hmm just realised that we are not playing Tests in Zim but according to the FTP we are! I am disappointed. I was looking fwd to the Test matches!

How about at home - have the Tests been scraped from that tour too?

Zimbabwe is now reduced to participate in Intercontinental Cup (to play FC matches with associate teams). I don't think they are gaining back their Test status anytime soon.

even though zim don't have test status it would have been nice if they played some 4-day matches.

Certainly! It is up to BCB to arrange this with the ZIM board. this can be done when they visit BD,at least 2 fourday matches, will be beneficial for both teams.

If Zimbabwe team were coming to Bangladesh this November, we should have already heard from BCB about the tour (they already told us about tours that are going to take place as late as January and February).

It does not make sense why BCB should host Zimbabwe team twice a year. Hosting Zimbabwe for four ODIs earlier this year should have satisfied our commitment to FTP.

yeah do people really consider yuvraj an allrounder? he's a batsman who can bowl part time imo. afridi is sort of a unique case, he's chopped and changed over his career between being more of a bowler and more of a batsman.

Yuvraj is ranked 7th in ICC ODI allrounders ranking. So, either ICC ranking is meaningless or Yuvraj is actaully worth something as a bowler - take your pick

ICC ranking is meaningless....never thought Shakib was the best all-rounder...the world at the moment is lacking good all rounders

from what i've seen he isn't that great of a bowler, michael clarke can bowl a bit, but that doesn't make him an allrounder. i never really pay attention to those rankings anyway, btw he has a test bowling average of 45 and ODI bowling average of 40, for me those stats aren't good enough to be considered an allrounder (especially when by watching him his bowling doesn't look very impressive). if they were down around 35 then he could be considered an allrounder but atm i'd consider him a batsman who can bowl a bit.

Top 10 ranking of of the Test/ODI allrounders doesn't mean much , because the competition in this section lot less compared to batting or bowling ranking. All teams usually have 1-2 allrounders in the XI (at most 3 if you count batsmen who can bowl/bowlers who can bat), so being #7 means you're 7th out of 20.

The top #3 of allrounder ranking could be comparable to the top #10 batsman/bowler ranking, if we take the ratio of batsman, bowlers and allrounders in playing XIs into account.

Spitty, agreeing with you that there are only 15-20 cricketers who can bat and bowl well enough to be considered allrounders, Yuvraj being the 7th in the list does give him recognition as an allrounder, even if he is not among the best allrounders (provided ICC ranking is not meaningless).
