BDFlag If rain shortens the game on 3/19

I would jump my gun and say if rain shortens the game on 19th we may have a better chance than India. Simply because I think if the game is 30-35 overs a side and even if India bats first Rohit and Dhawan especially in bowler friendly conditions can be a tad slow and if we can gain momentum and keep them to even 240 in 35 overs.

The second innings pressure is taken out simply because you have 10 wickets and 35 overs and as we will play with 8 batsmen it gives us a fair chance.

__

If we bat first and can score around the same score. In a shortened game of 35 overs, I think Rohit-Dhawan are capable of playing a rash shot and getting out giving us early wicket and if we can sustain the pressure.

What do you guys think? BTW chances of shower that day are there.

There will be a reserve day for rain affected matches if both teams can not bat 20 overs on the match day. But in case if match can't be decided on the reserve day also, the team that has finished higher in the group will go to the next round.

We aren't going to beat India if this turns into a 20/20 slogfest

Where do you think their T20 experience will go? Washed away by the rain? They are more T20 savvy than our players and posses hard hitting batsmen. Other than Mushy, Shakib and Somya, I do not see anyone blasting away from the get go. Even Shabbir takes good 10-15 balls to open up.
Let our boys beat them by playing better cricket, that's the only way.

I don't see any sign of rain on 19th in the weather report that I checked (google Melbourne Cricket Ground weather).

Well, yes and no.

I checked few other weather forecasts, as many as I could find, like this one:

http://www.myweather2.com/Cricket/Au...nd.aspx?sday=2

What it seems like, there is a chance of rain, at night. But totaling about 0.1 inch. That shouldn't be a problem in finishing a 50 over game.

hmm...i see..Australia's bureau of meteorology has also predicted 70% chance of rain in the afternoon or in the evening. The match may be delayed, but i think, still it can be played for full 100 overs.

If this is true, bangladesh should get all the batting practice as possible before it comes down hard and the match is abondoned for the day.


Tamim might get out on the 19th by a Shammi ball.


But not the reserve day 20th!! LOL.

I think the match will resume from where it was left on 19th then. See the rule for reserve day

A reserve day is usually scheduled as a backup option for knockout matches by the ICC in case rain doesn’t allow both teams to bat a minimum of 20 overs each in the match on the scheduled day.
Consider a team is chasing 300 runs in 50 overs when rain suddenly interrupts play after the completion of 10 overs in the second innings. Then, the rains stop and play is set to resume but a new target has been set using the Duckworth-Lewis (D/L) method which has to be chased down in only 40 overs.
There are two ways how this can pan out:
(i) If the day’s play is abandoned again without a ball being bowled, then the match will continue on the reserve day with the D/L method being ignored. The team batting second will have to chase 300 itself in 50 overs.
(ii) If even a single ball is bowled after the interval and then play is abandoned for the day, then on the reserve day, the team batting second will get only 40 overs and the target will be as per the D/L method.
If play is abandoned on the scheduled day after the toss and without a ball being bowled, there is no re-toss on the reserve day and teams will not be allowed to make any changes to their playing XI.

The idea of "higher ranked team goes thru" without playing is just bull. If that's the case why play the games at all? Just call it final between top seeded Ind-NZ and had the cup the team with better RR.

Too much emphasis on Rohit and Dhawan. No we won't win if its a shortened game. We are playing with players who are regularly polished in IPL and have far better idea and far more experience than us in playing shortened games and handling the pressures that come with it. Lets say both Dhawan and Rohit fail, then we have a Kohli, Rahane to come in and in Raina and Dhoni, India have some of the best finishers. Would rather take them on for 50 overs than a shortened game.

If rain shortens the game on 3/19, then India will definitely win with all these IPL clowns in our Squad.

Looks like weather condition actually improved a bit. The worse case I can see is 1-5mm of rain. I'm more hopeful of a 50 over game now than yesterday. 1/5th of an inch of rain is not going to affect anything.
