After the first Test against New Zealand ended in a draw, our forums lit up with what if scenarios. Should Bangladesh have gone for it? A member poses this question directly to our author who also happens to our resident arm-char all-rounder. His response is definitely worth a read.

>> So, statistically speaking, McCullum knew he was hardly taking any risks.

Saw this stat during the last Test of the Ashes - no team that has started its fourth innings with 44 overs or less available has lost the Test match. Teams those were set a target in 100 overs may have got out in 30 overs, but not when they were set a target in <= 44 overs.

PS : I don't know how the remaining overs were decided for older Tests when there was no stipulation on the minimum number of overs.

Interesting. So if McCullum had set us 1 fewer over to go for the chase, then we'd have a much reduced risk of losing?

Excellent analysis.

I think Shak needed the batting practice So did Tamim'ma.
