This is really sad, the amount of faith our management showing on our pacers. Also, I think Kenyan spinners, especially Tikolo and Collins Obuya, may turn out to be lot more dangerous than their pacers could have been on a fast pitch.

Also, I am not getting why the selectors did not pick Enamul if they had planned to cash on a slow pitch.

So I can guess Bd wants to bat first and sub razzak. What if they have to bowl first after losing the toss?

this is utterly disrespectful to Mashrafee and Rassell. And I also think it can be a boomerang decision

Obuya IS dangerous, as I remember from the last WC.. I guess they just want to contain Tikolo. Although, I don't think Bogra pitch will be as slow as BNS.

Ba'd. I really thought BD are good in sporting wicket. I can't remember any match where bd did well and the wicket was spinning. Have to agree with some of you that it could be better if we would have faith on our pacers.

Anyway, let's hope that we all are wrong and our think tank is far better than us. I'm really now afraid of Kenyan spinners. If they do better than ours, what would you say.

I personally think Bangladesh suck in playing spin. So this plan can defiantely backfire. They should've made a fast sporting pitch and go with mashrafee rasel... Bangladeshi batsmen are also more comfortable agaisnt pace....... I think we are more concentrating on their weaknesses than our strength...

But Watcher, Tikolo is a Right Arm Medium bowler, not spinner.

Don't see those. He sometimes tried slow medium. But mainly he is a right hand off-spinner.

Bad Idea

BD is not good against spinners. Therefore, they generally don't play well in slow wickets. I would rate them a
4.5/10 vs. Spin. Jus hope that they handle the ken spinners well, and hole that they restrict them to about 200-222.

Agree.

This plan has good chance of backfiring if we chase a 220+ score.

Can Chemosit tell us what the typical Kenyan pitches are like? Slow, low bounce pitches are the norm for Bangladesh and our batsmen can actually handle spin fine then because they get on the back foot, read the spin of the pitch and because of the slowness, adjust their shot accordingly. Also slow low pitches negate leg spinners such as obuya who depend on bounce.

Now if Kenyan pitches are just like ours, then pitch becomes a wash with no side getting an advantage.

In the long term we _are_ better off playing in sporty, bouncy pitches. We don't quite need a WACA yet

well I am not sure about how good kenyan pacers are apart from suji and odoyo but these two are not express by any means.... we should've gone with a fast sporting pitch where mashrafee and shahadat can extract some bounce and pace... I am just keeping my fingers crossed for now... lets see what Razzak can do...

Why Razzak is playing? What he has done in his international career to be chosen in front of Rana all the time? After loading the team with 6 batsmen and 1 allrounder why do need a super sub bowler who can bat well? The selectors are morons, specially Faruque. He should go. According to daily star, by the way, Rajin will be super sub.

I didnt know we had loaiza fans in bangladesh. wow haha
As far as this match is concerned razzaq, rana dont matter much. Rana is better, he has 2 MoM awards for F's sake how many bengalis have that, we havent won that many games.
But key will be scoring 250+ if the batsmen can do their job, we will win without a doubt. But when have our batsmen really played to their potential these goofs are more likely to get bundled out to rash shot selection for less than 150. Bashar will lead the way with yet another bonehead pullshot. Its not like he makes up for those on the field with good decisions, a cow could predict bashar's field placing arrangements.
Ashraful has been the only hope in batting in last few tours, someone else has got to step up and give him a break. We cant have Rafique as our 2nd highest scorer, its retarded.

our players need to stregnthen themselves agains spin...you cannot compete in asia without it.

we have mastered our weakness against fast bowlers, but the spinners we must learn to cope with as well.

lets see how we handle kenyan spinners.

Look guys,
we don't always have to be negative about every aspect of bangladesh cricket.
Slow wicket for spin so what?
I think the Kenyan batsmen prefer to face pace to spin. Who said they prefer spin? What proof?
As much as you all want to see our highly anticipate three-pronged-first-time-competent pace attack come out all guns blazing, we have to play the players according to match situation. No matter what. Kenyans will not be rollovers by any means. Look what we did to Sri Lanka. Kenya can definitely do that to us. They did it to Zimbabwe recently who are still a test side regardless of their situation.

Be patient, you'll see Masri Rasel Shahadat combo soon, i'm sure.
