Default In what ways did the floodlight failure affect us?

I can think of 3. Any others?


1) Ruin our team's momentum going out to field. As were clearly the winners after our batting session.

2) Give the Lankan batsmen more time to reduce their nerves and come up with an excellent batting gameplan.

3) Make sure there is more dew,making it harder for all our bowlers to get it on line and length.

point one and 3rd just gave all the advantages what one couldn't ask more.. my first reaction of flood light failure was that there is something fishy here..

well a Target of 130ish is definitely a psychological advantage compared to a 160ish.
regardless of the overs

If it's just about victory, than yes we lost because of our bowling. But it is how badly that we lost, than I bring up the excuses.

You don't think the extra time allowed Dilshan and Perrera meditate and clear their mind and come up with a precise strategy to obliterate the bowling attack?

On the other hand, the bowlers' mindset would be to quickly get in on the field,just zipping through their overs.

Lol. Meditate? I would love to see you pitch this to a Sri Lankan. We got destroyed buddy, floodlight problem or not.

I ain't saying SL did that deliberately, but what you mention is a fact. Resuming the game after 1.5 hours later really helped SL batters which eventually costs us the match. 1.5 hours means at least 15 overs. Since our bowlers need help from pitch to bowll well, they suffered heavily due to dew. Even commies were saying pitch had changed its behavior. In the first half, ball was keeping low and slow. But in the second half, ball was coming sweetly to bat. Its not that if we had full 50 overs, we wouldn't have lost the game but who knows !

What was to prevent our bowlers to meditate and channel their inner waqar or dale or shoeb?

It was to our advantage. I do not think we had the bowling power to bowl the full 50 overs.

It's the excuse culture that prevents us from moving further faster.

If 'due factor' is an 'excuse' then no team would be so much interested winning the toss and bowl first in a day nighter ! No doubt our bowlers bowled badly, but you can't deny the due factor too which helped SL batters to bat well. While we were batting, the pitch had uneven bounce, ball was not coming to bat well. But it was totally different scenario under the light. And yes, our bowlers made the situation worse by bowling short pitch, half volley !

Well whether the floodlight issue a deliberate one or not is a different thing but from a distant it certainly looks to have affected us. Things could have gone our ways if rubel and abul bowled with better lengths. if razzak could just become a superman for an instant and caught that one and so on... and if we move more down the lane may be it is a 300sh pitch and our batters did a mess out of it in the beginning.
So my point is instead of investigating in all these bd players should focus themselves for the 2nd odi and should make themselves mentally prepared against all the odds, and leave these topics here in bc for the discussion. :-)

these, where we lost the match. now people will say excuses, but same with Srilankan bowlers would have happened you are unable to grip ball, the ball coming quicker to batsman with the speed of bat, ball skidding. When we faced their bowling ball coming slow your are prone to mistime shots, ball getting low you had to adjust late. So, yes I say floodlights really did the trick..

Because our bowlers don't work that way. When your team believes it has a good score, you want to burn your nervous energy going to field as soon as possible, choking the batsmen at least if not picking up wickets.

Batsmen on the other hand, they have more time to dissipate their nervous energy by clearing their mind completely of the previous session and coming on to bat.

Amen. And hence the purpose of the thread.

Aren't most Lankans buddhists anyway?


I'm not saying we weren't smashed to pieces. We were. But the delay caused by the flood lights helped undoubtedly.

All buddhists meditate=all chinese know karate. Hehe

We lost against a better team on the given day. Lets face. It was a good toss to win for SL. Could the result be reversed if they batted first? Probably not. They wouldnt grumble about the dew or floodlights. They would bowl with a plan, bowl in the right areas put pressure on our batsmen and get breakthroughs. From the very first over it was pretty clear we had no plan. No venom, no penetration, no discipline. Reminded me of New Zealands onslaught against us in Pallekele in T20 World Cup. We just dont know how to bowl in such wickets.

Guys, even if there wasn't a Floodlight failure. We still would've lost but maybe not in comprehensive way. Cuz our pace bowling is Toothless. If there was Mash & Nazmul. It would've been somewhat a different story. With or without the Floodlight failures. Oh & Razzak should be banned from Fielding forever.

Jeesh - we are not looking for the truth nor the facts in this thread. This is more of a salve for badly burnt fans in dire need for some 'now, nows'.

It affected our bowlers' mental space time orientation...they're so locked in, mentally they had started to bowl at the scheduled time right after the break...by the time flood lights were back, first power play was over and our bowlers were a bit exhausted from having bowled 15 overs already and set to bowl to a non PP field...so our bowlers were bowling to a non PP field whereas SL batsmen were batting to a PP field...unfair advantage to SL

Dear Doc,
Excuseeeeeeeeeeeee me!

Not looking for facts?

The whole thread is based upon the fact that the floodlights went out!
And the delay:
Ensured more dew.
Disrupted the momentum of the Bd team.
Gave the SL batsmen more time to take a deep breath and analyze how they would approach their chase.

And that is the truth. Our bowling needs to be way better, but you seem to have enjoyed the floodlights going out . It's like you want another malfunction to happen just to prove that we can cope with any situation.
Not me. I'm the practical one here and wanted the victory. And while the bowling was atrocious, is there any doubt the floodlight failure didn't help our cause?That is all.

The purpose of the thread isn't just to whine. It's to whine for a cause. No more floodlight disruptions please!

Let's say that there was no floodlight disruptions, would that have made a difference in the outcome of the game? You and I both 'no' the answer to that question.

What about the fact that they took of 9 overs off our bowling quota but only took off 20 runs from the target? That wasn't a psychological advantage for us?
