Thumbs up Captain Fantastic: the West Indian POst Mortem

The much anticipated match against the West Indies took on new significance. As their Caribbean generosity in the form of 27 extras, 4 dropped catches, and poor captaincy saw the hosts South Africa and Herschelle Gibbs snatch probable victory away from Chris Gayle’s remarkable first ever international T20 century for his team, West Indies found itself on the brink of first round elimination. Bangladesh on the othe hand, found the easier ticket to the second round of this inaugural T20 World Champiosnship within their reach, but that will require a first ever victory against the Caribbean Kings in any form of cricket.

With Zimbabwe’s heroic upset of the Australian Goliath confirming those glorious uncertainties of the sport – perhaps more uncertain and glorious in its pressure-packed, shortest version – Bangladesh, after only a couple of years since the 2005 Australia related heroics of their own, found themselves inspired for good reason.

Anything can and does happen in cricket, and the West Indians were desperately hoping that it wasn’t going to happen to them. The extra pressure to win was on them, they failed to carry its weight, and lost. Deft and diligent team performance from a young and talent-packed Bangladeshi squad had them book that early and grim flight back home. La Gordita, the proverbial fat lady sang for them with a high falsetto. Not Puccini or Verdi, but something in Bangla sung by a hundred and fifty million voices throughout Bangladesh and the world.

Bangladesh won and cruised into the second round with 2 overs to spare, no matter what happens to South Africa in Cape Town. Here’s how it happened.

After the annoying little delay eating up the hour that refused to go away, the two young captains met at the center, our Mohammad Ashraful won the toss - and keeping the conditions as well as the history of successful chases in Bangladesh’s notable victories in mind - rightly decided to bowl first. Ramnaresh Sarwan’s face dropped as he found himself under more pressure even before the first ball was bowled. The question remained, will the young Tigers, now under the leadership of a more aggressive, confident and innovative skipper, take advantage of this early advantage and deliver the coup-de-grace when the moment presents itself in the middle?

Syed Rasel provided the early breakthrough with his 3rd delivery and removed the dangerous Chris Gayle. Lots of moisture, a bit of movement off the seam, and Syed Rasel entered the record books with a first over wicket-maiden in T20 World Championships against a test playing nation. Impossible ask for a better start. He continued the great worked and finished his quota with the other-worldly T20 economy of 2.5. He did his job well enough to allow others a little breathing room, can’t ask for anything more than that. However, again we were baffled as to why he was not saved for the death overs. A questionable and in retrospect bad decision from the captain. Anyway, a perfect 5 out of 5 for our best T20 seamer.

Abdur Razzak opened the bowling at the other end, and versatile Shiv Chanderpaul top edged him for a 4 before sweeping him over square leg for a huge 6. Not a good start for the SLA Razzak. Razzak came back into the attack after Reza conceded 22 runs from his two overs and did OK, except that first delivery, bowled short and wide, and naturally hit for another boundary. Razzak learned quickly from his first two overs and enticed Chanderpaul into lofting one right into Mashrafe’s hands in the middle of his third. Abdur Razzak was back with another wicket to his name after conceding only 2 runs. His figures were beginning to look good again. The man saved his best for last. Just as West Indies was looking desperately to up the run rate after an ambiguous 104-3 in the middle of the 16th over, he clean bowled DS Smith with a clever quicker delivery and sent him back to the dugout. With a stellar economy of 6.5 and 2 wickets at the end of his quota, Razzak gets a “superior” 4 out of 5 in my book. Not using him in the either of the 2 death overs underlined poor bowler-management from the captain.

Mashrafe Bin Murtaza was brought into the attack, bowled 3 wides in a row before bowling short and getting spanked around the park in his first two overs. If there is a T20 bowler inside the man, he needs to be yanked out and mentored by Syed Rasel, the best we’ve seen so far in early stages of this tournament. His figures would and should have looked worse, but Farhad Reza’s superlative efforts saved two boundaries and bailed him out somewhat. He will not bowl again in the match after coughing up those momentum generating 8 runs per over. A 1 or “hmm” out of 5 for him.

Farhad Reza came in to bowl and his second delivery was easily picked up early by Chanderpaul and timed for 6. His first-over nightmare started there stopped after conceding 9 more. Not a good start at all, and hardly an effective way to contain the early damage done by the vice-captain. Farhad improved a little in his second over, but those 8 runs looked at least 1 run too many. The unsightly "economy" of 11.00 after his two overs, and a “hmm” or 1 out of 5 for our third seamer.

Shakib Al Hasan, whose bowling improved with every practice match came next and did not disappoint too much. Getting some unexpected bounce from the pitch, he plugged the widening hole a little with his tighter bowling. 8 runs from his over, perhaps one run too many. His excellence at the margins continued in the second, when Aftab Ahmed of all people, dropped a sitter and robbed him of a well-deserved wicket from a deceptive delivery. Shakib kept up the pressure in his third, and was soon rewarded with a wicket from a skier easily taken by Mushfiqur Rahim. In his final over, Shakib Al Hasan continued the good work, created dismissal opportunities for Mushfiqur Rahim, and the adorable Mushfiqur Rahim "Mushy" rewarded him with a couple of stumpings. A 3 out of 5, or “above average” performance from Shakib Al Hasan and his 4 wickets and 8.5 per over after 4, including the death overs. He bowled better and more usefully than the rather posh economy can possibly suggest.

Mohammad Ashraful was the fifth bowler to come into the attack to try his luck, and managed to contain the opposition to easy singles. Great first over from the captain under the somewhat dubious circumstances. After bowling a good second over, the captain faced Marlon Samuels and after being spanked around the park for 20 runs from 4 deliveries, got him caught at Shakib’s safe and able hands. An outrageously expensive but nevertheless valuable wicket. Just when Shakib’s excellent 3rd over seemed to take the life out of West Indies, Ashraful’s final over and Bangladesh’s 19th resurrected their hopes with a festival of booming 6s from Dwayne Smith. The captain needs to reassess his confidence levels as a death over bowler, and explore other possibilities. A “hmm almost average” or 1.75 out of 5 for the excellent ealy half of his efforts later severely mitigated by youthful delusions and those 13.75 runs per over.

In light of the aforementioned performances, I’ll give our bowling an “above average” 3 out of 5. Without Rasel, Razzak and Shakib, that number would have been below 1 and above 0 or “not observed”. Without Rasel and Razzak, that number would have been 1.

There were dismissal opportunities and opportunities to rob the opponent of valuable runs. Except Aftab Ahmed dropping the sitter, I’d say our boys kept it tight did a very good job on the field. A 4 out of 5 with special kudos to Farhad Reza, Alok Kapali, and Mushfiqur Rahim. Aftab could have made it a perfect 5 out of 5.

Bangladesh restricted West Indies to 164 for 8 and a run rate of 8.20 runs per over, and the manageable chase was on. Here’s how they batted.

Tamim Iqbal facing one of the very best in the business in Darren Powell started the show. Excellent line, length, bounce and movement off the seam at pace kept a short leash on Tamim. He rotated the strike, Mohammad Nazimuddin rotated it right back, and Tamim nearly got himself out with a wild swing at the last delivery after leaving his stumps totally exposed. His impetuous and shameful idiocies continued against Powell, but by the infinite grace of Allah, he survived living dangerously, and even managed to hit a 4 in the process. He did not survive long and donated his wicket to Rampaul. Not having Junaid Siddique, his possible alternative, play in the practice matches began to look like another bad decision from the Tiger management. Woeful performance, a solid 0 out of 5, despite that streaky 4 that took him to the lowest possible double figures. Time for Junaid to have his international debut against the hosts at the Newlands in Cape Town.

Mohammad Nazimuddin's much awaited TV debut disappointed everyone. Mis-timing a decent enough delivery from Ravi Rampaul sent him and his jitters back to the dug-out. So much for that dream start from both of our openers. An obvious 0 out of 5.

Aftab Ahmed found himself walking into the middle in his familiar role as a “virtual” opener once again, and dealt with the pressure of consolidating a crumbling top order with maturity and class. Rotating the strike with ease, especially after Tamim Iqbal’s predictable exit, and allowing no margin of error he punished the West Indian bowlers who presumed otherwise and found themselves rattled for that particular folly. Aftab delivered the finish as he has done before, and hopefully will continue to with more frequency. A perfect 5 out of 5 for Aftab for his 62 not out from 49. With the bat, this dynamo from Chittagong atoned for that dropped catch and much, much more.

Mohammad Ashraful came to make amends for his pathetic bowling and he did after a sloggy 4. What followed was a masterful demonstration of his talent, courage and application save a few unsightly attempts here and there. The paddle sweep failed to find his bat before finding Ramdin’s gloves, and Fidel Edwards decided to continue the West Indian sitcom on the field by dropping another one of his bizarre compulsions like a schoolboy. Talismanic in all of Bangladesh’s significant victories, our beloved Ash did not disappoint after that “life”. His 20 ball 55 became the fastest 50 in T20 history right before our astonished eyes, and he did it with his third over boundary of a script written just for him. Sanath Jayasuriya eat your heart out. Before surrendering to his counterpart Sarwan, Mohammad Ashraful did more than enough damage to expose the writing was on the wall for the Caribbean Kings. A 4.75 out of 5 for our champion that at times was nothing less than an extra-perfect 10. A match winning 61 from 27 with the outrageous strike rate of 225.92, easily the MOM in this universe and all others.

Mohammad Ashraful Matin, our brother, may Allah bring you increase for bring us together like this, and showing the world the very best we have to offer as individuals.

Shakib Al Hasan came in to put the finishing touches after the captain’s bummer of a dismissal at Sarwan’s hands, and he seemed equal to the task with his sensible batting, piling pressure upon pressure on the opposition, who found themselves having to bowl Bangladesh out in order to salvage an impossible victory. Sadly he couldn’t finish the jab as Sarwan got the better of him. A 4 out of 5 from Shakib Al Hasan and his timely 13 off 9 balls that kept our feet on the pedal.

Then came Alok Kapali, back on TV after too long really, the perfect man to see us through. He was lucky not be run out cheaply. He saw, he nudged a couple, he did the job and delivered the crucial run. An easy 4 out 5 for doing his job.

Our Rasel, Razzak and Shakib, ably supported by our fielders created an opportunity for the batsmen, and for a refreshing and eagerly awaited change, the magnificent Mohammad Ashraful and his AAA Battery buddy Aftab Ahmed took that opportunity with both hands, and finished the job like Tigers. The math is simple enough for Bangladesh, if the AAA battery get going, either as individuals or in tandem, our chances for a victory improves dramatically. A near perfect 4.75 plus out of a possible 5 for the batting unit, a perfect 5 without Tamim and Nazimuddin’s early and irresponsible decisions.

We outplayed the opposition in all three fundamentals of cricket, as we tend to do in all of our victories to date, got very lucky on occasion, and Allah rewarded us with this victory. As Alok Kapali’s bat produced the magic moment of this memorable win with 12 balls to spare, Bangladesh and their 150 million plus supporters exploded with an increasingly more familiar joy, and those ecstatic reverberations are still buzzing all around us like a mystical life force that if understood properly, can bring us more glory in this tournament and enable us to show the world what we have know all along. Show the world that we can, we do, and by the supreme grace of Allah we will beat anybody in international cricket once we harness our considerable talent, apply what we’ve harnessed on the field, and become the best we can possibly be.

The task now, is to turn another corner and beat the big boys of world cricket two matches in a row, and beat the hosts in their own backyard.

... Jauy Bangla, Bangladesh Zindabad. ...

Sohel, Rasel is perfect for finishing off the powerplays. He'll get the top order wickets that will prevent the big launch.

I think he himself does not like bowling at the end. His main weapon is swing and he can do it as long as ball is new. He earlier he finishes his overs the better. I was disappointed with Mash today though, and Ash did not need to bowl the 19th over. If Alok was playing, why not use his bowling for at least an over?

I see your point.

I guess we better try Razzak and Shakib for the last two until the better alternatives present themselves. Then again, if Ash bats like the way he did today because of a desire to exorcise his bowling, let him continue to bowl those death overs ...

To add to that, I do not know why he was not given run out. I know those videos always looks different depending on our or their player, but this one, even after being one of ours, looked short.

Benefit of the doubt according to the ESPN commentators. Apparently one of the bails wasn't completely dislodged ... looked out to me personally.

The bail was not completely off before the batsman crossed the line...from the various angles it looked like the batsman was just in (all in one frame).

The problem was from the initial strike of the ball, one of the bail came of. The second came off from Ravi's throw. By that time Alok was in.

Captain Fantantic becoming Captain Arrogant..he talks big after each performance
http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/twen...ry/310796.html

May be he does exceptionally well against Giants but he has to remember his team members not always produce world class performance and indeed we are still minnows. People will say it, but we have to prove it they are wrong. Words will not help us.

I don't think we're minnows in T20 cricket.

I won't be surprised if we actually manage to win 2 in a row this time around.

Isn't it the very "first over maiden wicket" record? Anybody knows when the other maiden wicket was bowled? 1st over?

Great analysis, Sohel NR. I was so excited that I was looking for something like this long analysis. Couple of comments though, finishing off Razzak's quota early and bowling Russel for 4 overs (he is the most effective this way) in a row are demands from situation of the game (at least to me). The only fact that Ash decided to bowl himself on 19th over after conceeding 20 runs in his previous over is surely a bad decision. Mash should have brought back for a over. That might be excellent or expensive (which we will never know), but that should be the obvious choice. We won, so we are not caring about it that much... lol...

I have noticed Ash bringing Razzak on second over and getting good results in practice matches. So I think he will continue the same in future games... donno if it is a wise decision of not, though.
