Default BD team preview

Bangladesh



Still a long, long way from living up to their lofty status, but Bangladesh are far removed from the disjointed rabble who bombed out of the last World Cup with defeats to Kenya and Canada. Under the firm-but-fair guidance of Dav Whatmore, an emphasis on basic discipline and fitness is beginning to pay dividends, and their recent tour of the Caribbean demonstrated that the gap between them and the rest is closing, albeit slowly. The loss of their captain and leading batsmen, Habibul Bashar, is a grievous blow, but it could yet force the rest of a young squad to shelve their indiscretions.




Man to watch
If Ashley Giles can take 21 wickets on England's midsummer pitches, then Mohammad Rafique, another spinner flushed with confidence at present, could also pose some significant questions - not least to the same West Indian left-handers who faltered against England this year. Quite apart from his ebullient bowling, Rafique is a tailend biffer who delights in the unorthodox, and has a Test century to his name to prove it.




New kid on the block
This time last year, 23-year-old Rajin Saleh had not been seen at international level. Now he is captain of Bangladesh, where his abilities are about to be scrutinized by millions on a global stage. It is a daunting prospect, but judging by his fearless approach to batting - he is never afraid to take his share of blows - Saleh is very much equipped for the task ahead. His devotion to physical fitness sets him apart from his peers, and suggests he will lead by example in all aspects of Bangladesh's development. Andrew Miller

I would like to name some dark horses in the team (or the new kid in the block):

1. Nafees Iqbal - if he can be consistent for just 2 matches
2. Aftab Ahmed - if utilized properly by our team management

I sincerely hope that golla/nafis/ash/rajin combo clicks - but just two matches in a knockout format is a hit or miss deal ..

Default South Africa Vulnerable against BD

For the first time in ten years, South Africa go into a one-day tournament as outsiders, and in the eyes of some, even no-hopers. Ten consecutive defeats in New Zealand and Sri Lanka, where they were largely listless, have left them vulnerable even against Bangladesh.

Going to the semifinal with the help of rain is a realistic possibility, not only for BD but for USA, Kenya and Zimbabwe as well. It will be really interesting if that happens. In that case, USA will have as good a chance of lifting the trophy as the other three teams.

wats the use of goin into the semis with the help of rain. wat we need now is good play, good cricket, good individual perfomances, specialy from our batsmen. even if we do go into the semis with the help of rain. its not gona rain for us in every other matches to come. its not gona improve our cricket. it wont boost the moral of our players. overall, i jus see no use of goin into the semis wit the help of rain. play good cricket and then progress
and i do hope they play some gud cricket:tiger:
