I know 72 Hours Early but I can't get that Horrible Taste of the 1st Test out of my Mouth.

Shahadat will get Reverse Swing, Ash, Juniad, Tamim, Everyone Wearing Green and Red Will Score Runs, Spinners will do the Job. The 1st Test will be just a mere footnote in Our Crickets History, This Test Will be an Entire Chapter.

This is our Home Ground, This is where we dominated the 1st 2 ODI's this is where going to Pick up our 2nd Test Win and Level the Series.

Thanks for the match thread cricman. You had been lucky in the first test, not lucky enough though. Hope this time you will bring us good luck.

regardless of what other people say, think, i think Bangladesh has done a fabulous job in the first test in chittagong i give them 10/10. because:

they passed 240 in each of the innings,
and restricted opposition below 200(rarely does it happen in our cricket history, right?)

mistakes from Ashraful as a captain is unaviodable and as a batsmen and a fielder because we all know about his character...

Vettori did a brilliant job, let's say we didn't make those little mistakes here and there then i think it was a still a "maybe" that we would win because chasing 172 runs with 90 overs(1 day) and eight wickets is a piece of cake in test cricket(regarless of oppostion) given the pitch conditions....but alhamdulillah i am very happy we narrowed our loss margin to 3 wickets , let's not forget umpire helped too in our cause.

if i am to be critical, i would blame Bangladesh's top order failure aside from Shakib, Rahim and a couple of others in the 2nd innings.

let's face it: Shahadat Hossain can't produce 6/27 every innings...

anyways, 2nd test match, i hope we do well.

my overall message: we performed beyond expectation that's why 10/10! if we judged way too critically, off course, there is always "error" in cricket!

Toss and the decision to bat or bowl can be cruicial.
Will dhaka pitch give up like the one in chittagong?

Good Luck boys, keep fighting.

I think the Mirpur pitch is a more traditional sub-continental wicket which means that batting should get much tougher in the later days as opposed to the pitch in CTG where it actually got easier to bat as the match went on. Looking for a big knock from Ashraful. He usually performs when he is under the pressure of being dropped. So this match will be a nice test for the Siddons regime. We will finally get to see if our team will be consistently competitive in Tests. Go BD GO!!!!

Just the fact that NZ needed a MONUMENTAL and historic effort from their captain to barely squeak (3 wickets is close) out a win doesnt mean we did bad. I dunno where ppl get that. I mean we are a team that almost never makes opponent bat twice, and here we almost win, yet people are pissed off....

Any news on Roqibul? A fit Roqibul would be an invaluable addition to our batting. At the same time it would be unfair to axe Rajin after giving him only one Test. The selectors must persevere with whoever they pick for at least a couple of series, be it Rajin, Nayeem, or Junaid.

I am especially impressed with our team's performance considering how inexperienced it was. We probably had only 3 players who had played more than 10 tests. That's a remarkable statistic. And we suffered horrible collapses in both innings, but refused to give in as we have done so many times before. All of this gives me a lot of reason to hope for even better things for the next test.

দেখবেন নিউজিল্যান্ড কেমন একখান ধোলাই খায় এই ম্যাচে।হাজার হোক অতিথিপরায়ণতার জন্য আমাদের বিশ্ব জুড়ে সুখ্যাতি রয়েছে। পুরোটুকু রসগোল্লার পুরোটুকু না খাওয়া পর্যন্ত ওদের যেতে দেই কিভাবে?

dont expect too much from this test. NZ will be well prepared this time. we lost the golden opportunity in first test. we could lose this test with huge mergin. once again BD will miss the real test spinner who is enam jr. razzq wont get many wkts and eventually wont help bd. this time bowling of Sakib wont also help.

agreed. But if we're going to have rokib in the team, someone needs to be dropped to accomodate him...
