Default Canada all out for 36 vs SL

Just goes to show how weak OUR bowling and fielding is in general.

SL 28/1 after 4 overs.

Yes, we have found a better team than us in Canada but dont be surprised if we snatch the record of the lowest score in an ODI from them like fwullah has posted earlier. It swung as-

45 Can v Eng 1979.
43 Pak v WI 1989.
38 Zim v SL 2001.
36 Can v SL 2003.

Canada has set this record twice.

Default SL wins by 9 wickets

No Canadian could reach double figures even.

Vaas did damage again taking 3/15.

Score:

CAN 36 (18.4)
SL 37/1 (4.4)

Default TALKING ABOUT LOGIC

We produced a lot better performance than Canada against Sri Lanka.

This proves that we are a better team than Canada.

THIK KI NA ?

Default Of course we are a better team than Canada

They just had a really bad day at the office in the first match against Canada. Bangladesh have got some mental block, which is hindering them from playing sensibly. All our players are highly talented, but they just don't apply themselves properly. For example, look at how the openers continue to edge every goddamn ball when that has been there downfall since day 1. They didn't even learn after they got extra lives when the Windies dropped 3 catches. If the players would just settle down and play sensible cricket, nobody would even be asking whether we're better than Canada or not.

Default Exactly

The question of whether we are better than Canada or not should not even arise. We are far better than Canada. Our cricketers play senseless cricket. All of us on this board have more cricketing sense than them, as a matter of fact, most people in BD have more cricketing sense than them. However, the few that God endowed with talent he decided to make retards! God can be cruel like that sometimes.

Lagaan II - Hahahaha. Good one. The thing is, they really ought to play like their lives are at stake, because they ARE!! At this rate, these guys are going to get lynched by the mob when they go back home! Haven't you guys read in the papers about the six guys that got their eyes taken out a few days ago in BD? Well, unless these guys want to take part in the Blind World Cup, they better raise their standard.

Btw Orpheus, didn't get dumped recently. Been a while. Hehe. But I did watch Amadeus recently. If you guys haven't seen it, you all should. Its a classic, and you'll understand the reference to God being cruel.

i was talking of good teams by the opposite side. Canada is better than BD actually means Canada is worse than BD here but better in breaking world records.

I am getting sadistic pleasure in Canada's disaster. Since we cannot perform properly, we can only hope that other teams do badly as well.

Default Aus vs Holland

I was first surprised to see the 75 run margin. A closer look revealed the turth. Anyways, another big surprise was to see holland taking two Australian wickets. They had the Aussie at 123/2 off 28 overs at one stage. not too bad.

Bigger surprise was to see that Holland reached 122 but with McGrath and Gillispie bowling 6 overs only, that cleared out. Australia has a big problem with their bowling with only 30 overs of world class bowling and the rest are pretty much patched together. So, they were letting their extras bowl the rest of the overs.

Anyways, this is noe of those useless posts.

Default Minnows

The minnows are catching up on the fielding side of the game, but batting remains pathetic across the board. Rarely do any batsmen from the weaker teams hit double-digit scores, which is a damn shame.

In this World Cup, the minnow sides have proven that top-class teams can be effectively restricted to totals of 200-250. These are gettable totals. Unfortunately, bar one or two batsmen who have the necessary temperament, all others capitulate without a fight.

What happened? How come we're closing the gap on the fielding and bowling side, but there have been no significant improvments in batting? I remember commentators explaining how the strength of the minnows lies in their batting prior to the 96 and 99 World Cups. If that's the case, what the hell happened?

I havent seen any good batsmen outside S.Tikolo, M.Odumbe and JB Burger coming good for minnows. But I feel only Kenya and Namibia have good batsmen. The Dutch I suppose aren't suited for ODI cricket at all and Canadians - they seem to have a tradition of setting low totals.

I believe BD has got good batsmen like Kapali and Ashraful who have the capability to score ODI centuries.

H-Fan ... why would you give someone the satisfaction by using the f... word ? It's useless. Stay as far away from it as possible.
