Default Is our batting really not as gud as Zimbabwe also???

This is funny. Zimbabwe recently played against Kenya and they posted 351 and they win the match by 151 runs. My question is Bangladesh cant do the same against Kenya. If we dont strt posting 350 plus scores how the hell will the confidence of high scores come in our players.

I want Banglades to score 350 plus score as we dont have any. Being a test nation, i want Bangladesh to post such totals. It feel good to see Bangladesh such scores against Kenya or teams lower than us as once they did they same with us.

http://content-gulf.cricinfo.com/ken...ch/385024.html

I dont want to compare our batting technically with them as we r much better but i m sad to not see they sprit or spontanity in our batting that we cant ever score 350 plus against a weak team also.

Bangladesh cant do like that wid Kenya like how Zim dide. DAMNNNN!!!

So according to your fuzzy logic, since we scored near 300 against Ireland, all test nation playing team should score that much against them?

don't use the Bunting Hitch knot but go for the Fisherman's Bend knot. It will do the trick smoother.

Most rational and plausible post yet on this thread. Plus pitch might be a shirt front as opposed to the fly paper we used in SBNS

first aim is to score 250+ consistently against any opposition, last year at one point they were scoring quite a few 250+ scores, but things seem to have gone downhill for the batsmen since then (bar a couple of them e.g. shakib, rahim in tests).

based on pure potential, our batting is way better.

but we all know the difference between potential and actuality. in the context of bangladeshi cricket, that usually means 50% difference. no matter how flat the pitch, or how loose the bowling attack, or how small the ground, i highly doubt that our boys would score 320 let alone 350. they might score 320 in one match out of 5 against even kenya, and its the lack of focus that would do us in.

also bear in mind that there is an upper limit kind of thing going on. for example, the indian batsman all average 1.5 times what the zimbabwean batsman do, and are prolly 10X better. but that doesn't mean they would score 350 x 10 = 3500 runs agains the same attack on the same pitch.

bottom line is, you cannot compare one match, and that too against such a toothless bowling attack. you have to look at how the zimbabwean batsman have done against top sides over a statistically significant number of innings.

and in that regard, they are ahead of us, marginally though it might be, its still a disgrace and shows just how weak our batting is. this is despite the fact that since zimbabwe's crisis in 2004, they've been quite a bit more pitiful than we have.

they've won just 1 game out of 55 matches against G8 sides, against the windies at home. and their batting average is 20.00. our stats in the same period, are 7 wins from 71 games, but a batting average of 19.95.

that tells the whole story. we're a significantly better team, but an even poorer batting side.

Yeah, so the "Lack of Hard Hitters" thread talks here for itself.

The answer is very simple : Our batsman is not good enough for scoring 300+ runs . Even we dont have that 300+ inns in local league also.

look both sides batting is weak

the only reason that we got passed 300 is becasue of chigumbura coming in at the end and slogging a few which does not happen every time

hopefully the guys will gain confidence through these scores and be able to do it against the big sides

i believe both bangladesh and Kenya should play more against kenya and ireland in order to improve and gain confidence
