Smile JO is 'Rikshaw' compared to Tamim-Express!

Quote:
Omar needs to think in singles
Sidharth Monga at Mirpur
May 11, 2007

In the current Bangladesh one-day team Javed Omar is a misfit. At 30 he is old. With a strike rate of 52.22, he is a Dhaka cycle-rickshaw to Tamim Iqbal's Chittagong train. So contrasting are the styles of this opening combination one wonders if Tamim, frustrated by seeing Omar just defending from the other end, throws his wicket away.

Omar has often been criticised for being too slow. But he also knows the state of his team which has struggled for good opening stands. "Too often we lose four to five wickets in the first 10-15 overs and that's game over right there," Omar says, "like yesterday, we saw off the new ball without losing a wicket, and scored a big total." That in fact has rarely happened for Bangladesh. And that exactly is Omar's brief when he goes in to bat - to ensure there are no quick wickets at the top.
Full CI report..

Why are we starting so many threads with Monga's pathetic articles ?

He was probably tired but the team expects someone who has played so many dot deliveries to make up for it in the closing overs. He needs to rotate the strike more often than he does otherwise it is bound to put pressure on the other batsman.
That's exactly what I have to say and especially the bold one is almost right of my mouth!!!

There is no reason for Tamim to become frustrated and kill his own innings.
Tamim should play his game and push JO to catch up with him.
Instead of a train, Tamim should become a Truck and carry JO's Ricksaw just like this:

you shoulda been at the chatroom end of bd batting innings. People dont take kindly to whingers like Monga. Take it from someone who had the same observations as him... right Jabbar, Cricman, and Capslock bhais?

I am completely pleased with what JO did in the first match. Be it a rickshaw or simply a bare foot. His innings was much more effective than Tamim's.

I've revised my opinion of Omar enough to admit that we definitely need him in the side to mount a big total.

This doesn't mean that the way he farms the strike is the way to go about it though. Rotating the strike is still a must.

Well he's got strength judging by his figure. But the thing is, he doesn't like aerial shots.
