Default First Test Day 5 bulletin : Cautious Bangladesh settle for a draw

Current Tour

India in Bangladesh, 2007
Cautious Bangladesh settle for a draw
22 May 2007
Bulletin by Khondaker Mirazur Rahman


Despite a sporting declaration by Indian skipper Rahul Dravid, the first Test between Bangladesh and India at Chittagong Divisional Stadium ended in a tame draw on Tuesday.

Chasing an improbable victory target of 250 in 43 overs, Bangladesh showed some rearguard in the second innings and reached 104 for 2 in 28 overs. Bangladesh needed 146 runs requiring in last 15 overs, and India required 9 wickets.

Read the rest of the bulletin ยป

Well written as always..Miraz. But you didnt 'formally' ask the question -why Rajin?

Remember that you are the face of the Banglacricket fan and we are not a small community..you need to ask the hard questions.

Good point.

Thanks again Miraz bhai.

Hats off to Dravid and Shastri.

For Habibul Bashar, Dav Watmore: thank you.

For our future team management: Please read my signature. My fault. Didn't have this signature early enough for the current team managment to be able to see eventhough it was before the 5th day of the chittagong test. If you (the future team management) are in this type of situation again I wouldn't fault you if you try and fail.

Added the following paragraph.

Quote:
However, mystery remains to most of Bangladeshi fans about the decision to send Rajin Saleh after the fall of Habibul Bashar, when there was a possibility to go for a win, especially after a solid start. It appeared that Bangladesh team management decided to shut the shop, even before a real try to chase down the total. Promoting Mashrafe Mortaza or Mohammad Ashraful could have made the match more exciting, but unsurprisingly Bangladesh decided to play safe.

good report as always miraz bhai, but where's that subtle, underlying passion we've come to dig so much? where's the exasperation so aptly expressed in the match thread? our pathetic lack of effort to go for it, especially when it was safe to do so, needs to be written about somehow... it was a major feature of the game outside the match...

miraz bhai, objectivity is one of the oldest myths in journalism. it's impossible for a human being to be objective... the point is to be fair. you can always be passionate and fair. it's the passion that makes your reports better than the sterile stuff that's out there...

Added one paragraph.

To be frank, not getting enough inspiration to write a detailed report, especially after a bit disappointing end of the match.

you should add something about the amount of dot balls played by JO and Bashar, and how that diminished our chances of getting a victory. Especially, with dravid's aggressive field settings, there were numerous gaps to be exploited...

ha ha ha!
scoring 37 runs is a relief for Bashar )
A comepletely Basharlike thinking for sure. Do you think 37 runs is enough to be the reason of a 'relief'?

And one more interesting stat: Bashar' recent test scores read 37, 0, 49, 9, 7, 76, 73, 69....so, it does not look like he was having a bad time in tests 'as a batsman'. So, the statement 'this will be a relief for Bashar after an extended spell of lean patch' is actually 'not true'.

Miraz bhai, not to mention, it was a nice article. And thanks alot. But I am just trying to point at its weaknesses.

Bandule,

Before this game, Bashars test performances in the last 12 months read 'DNB'.

Just like every other Bangladeshi batsmans.

YOu are wrong, mate
DNB applies only for matches, where he played: but did not bat
