I agree. Especially at Lord's we really don't want to bat first. Not because there are landmines under the pitches or anything, but the first time at Lord's experience overwhelms most young (and old) cricketers. We don't want to go out there and lose half our side in the first hour because of nerves and the game will effectively be over. Thats exactly what happend to Zimbabwe the first time they played at Lords in 2000. They were put in to bat on the first morning and were bowled out for 80 odd, and that team included the Flower brothers, Murray Goodwin, Alastair Campbell, Neil Johnson, Guy Whittal and Heath Streak! All due to nerves.

Even if the bowlers start with a couple of nervous spells, they can always regroup after lunch. If our batsmen get overwhelmed by the occasion of walking through the Long Room and out to bat at Lord's on the first day, we are done for. Now, one can say, they may get nervous whenever they come to bat, whether first or second. True,but in reality, once they have spent some time out in the middle together with the rest of the team, it will get more familiar and coming out to bat later will be easier.

On the other hand if our batsmen are cool about it then they should exploit the advantage of batting first. This Lords thing is in the realm of emotions really.
Having said that, our batsmen are overwhelmed at any stadium.

Btw - good poll FRB- don't know the answer..

I think it won't be impossible to take it to 4th day if the Tigers show some mental strength and approach the matches session by session. Let's not undermind our team, after playing so many test matches and having the guidance of the likes of Dav and Co. they should know by now how to approach the game. The major factor would be the application/execution of the plan and that's where the mental toughness would come into play. If they can show some maturity I even dream of play continuing on the 5th day also!!

What you guys think?

why not? but it depends on so many iffy's. I really think bd batsmen do not have the skills and experience to survive that long in english condition. the only hope I have is the bowlers may produce some magic(mashree or rafiq). some of the bowlers are certainly capable of that. either way, that would not take the game into five days.

Are you talking about experience in english condition? I don't think bd playres have that. On the other hand, if you look at the bd batting stats, you will see most of the batesmen actually went to make the numbers. what I am saying is that you may play 20 tests but if you have not scored consistently there is no experience gained. you can only become experinced if you played as many balls as possible, not the number of tests you played.

i really want to see something go down to the fifth day. but if both teams bowl and field well, it might be a close match even if it ends in the 4th day. in this case i wouldnt mind.

i just want a close game. something more than just giving headaches to england. we did that in 2003. i wanna give em a heart attack

hahahaha. if not then we can atleast bribe the qeurator who made the pitch to tell what ingredients he used to make such a flat pitch. but still u know it wont work that well i think because there is always this moisture thing that will keep haunting you down.

Have faith guys..

BD is probably on the verge of starting to play cricket with e higher level of confidence and hunger for wins. I think they will do better than even the very recent home series vs. India.

The goal I will set for BD is to score 250+ runs per innings and get England out within 350. I don't expect our team to draw or win any test. But, I expect our players to build necessary skills to put good fights in NatWest series.

I will be very happy if BD manage to accomplish either task. Getting England out for 350 will take some doing.
