Default 1-1 or 0-0 which result do you choose for the BD-ZIM test series?

1-1 or 0-0 which result will you choose if given the choice?

Although 0-0 may not be possible because of the nature of our wickets, but it is my opinion and I feel that it would be better not to lose than to lose a test to the current Zimbabwe team and win the other one.

Because, personally, I hate to lose more than I would love to win than vice versa.

What would you prefer?

Ofcourse, we would prefer to win the series 1-0 or 2-0 if possible, but we have to look at the reality too that we have only one bowler who is capable of taking 5-fors in Rafique and others are just fringe bowlers who'll take at best 4 wickets per innings.

Besides, we don't have any specialist leg spinner in our side, doesn't matter what the BCB selectors/officials say that left arm spinners are actually leg spinners to the right handers and blah blah blah - we have never been able to polish off the tail of our opposition with our, and possible the world's best left arm spinner in our side.


Again, my question is, what would you prefer? A 1-1 test series drawn or a 0-0 test series drawn?

although a 0-0 result would mean we wont lose any test, but we wont win one either. and given the situation, i want the team to get the taste of test victory right now. they need to figure out how to win.

i choose 1-1

No one will care your lost one less match 50 years from now. But all will care how long it took BD to win the first test.

no high expectations as Mr. Rajputro said..BD's first win will be recorded in history...so all we expect a nice game good performance, team effort. If all clicks together we know what will happen.

So, to everybody, a 1-1 series drawn is better than a 0-0? Is that agreed?

i don't think there will be draws in these tests. Bangladesh (and perhaps Zimb as well) hasn't really shown the ability to bat for very long periods, even against weak bowling attacks.

I prefer Home 2- 0 Away.

But in your preferences, I choose 1-1.
Because at least we can win one test if it happened.

2-0 is what i prefer...or 1-1...0-0 would be a dissappointment unless we score 500 runs an innings.

nafees in chittagong, guys lets see if he can get BD's first 200

if not 2-0 to BD, then 1-0 BD, if not then 1-1.
no 0-0 or 0-1 or 0-2.

My first choice is 2-0 win for Bangladesh,
next choice, 1-0 win for Bangladesh.
But if you insist on to choose between 1-1 and 0-0, I will choose 1-1 to end long expectation for a WIN.

we should aim for win in the first test. If we don't then draw the series at worst. A test win isinfinetely better than a ODI win.
It is still an improvement and nothing to be ashamed about. ODI can go either way.
