Oh Thank GOD! It was a close match obviously but atleast we won! Pundit gave us a bit of a heart attack! Did he do that on purpose, that sadist? As soon as someone gets the scorecard, please put it on here. Thanks.

Default SORRY, SORRY, SORRY

But it was unintentional - I've been on the run lately, so I messed up. It doesn't help when you have to deal with the Chicago high winds, blistering at 7 degree F.

But I am glad to be wrong !

Again, my apologies !!

Default Typical Bangali Cricket (fan)

It's not us, it's the wickets
It's not us, it's the weather
It's not us, we can't breathe in the high altitudes of Namibia (one of the reasons that came out from Namibia on one of the bangla papers)
It's not us - it's their home advantage
blah blah blah

(Pundit bhai, you know that I'm kidding - by the way, loved Chicago during April some years back. Must be a pain right now)

Default Bnagladesh vs Namibia

Bangladesh took a 2-1 lead in the five-match Alexander Forbes one-day series against Namibia on Saturday, winning the third match by three wickets with 30 balls left.

Bangladesh scored 234 for seven in reply to Namibia's highest total of the series, 232 for six.

Halfcenturies for Namibia were scored by opener Riaan Walters (65) and Gavin Murgatroyd (53), both finding form after struggling in the earlier matches.

On a good batting wicket, Namibia could not contain the Bangladesh batsmen who were scoring at the required run rate throughout the innings. The Namibian fielding was not as sharp as in the first two matches.

Bangladesh number four batsman Sanwar Hussain won the man of the macth award, scoring a fluent 72 off 85 balls. He also shared a 114 run partnership with opener Ehsanul Haq, who made 52.

Hussain fell to a sharp catch by Namibian captain Deon Kotz at backward point, but Mohammad Rafique (24 not out off 21 balls) saw Bangladesh home.

The fourth match is played on Sunday, with the fifth and final match to be played on Wednesday. Both will take place at Wanderers Cricket Club

This is so confusing. Fahmida says we won by 13 runs, this report says we won by 3 wickets. Well, we won, thats all I care about at this stage. Good show by Sanwar and Seezan if this report is to be believed, and Rafiq did a good job too.

ps. What the hell kind of name is Murgatroyd?

You got it wrong - I believe it is: MURGA Troyd. Murga holo Murgi.

Wow, they scored 232 for 6 ? Good to read that we made it with 3 wickets and 5 overs in hand. However, since Seezan and Sanwar scored all the runs, it shows that ROKON and SUmon failed AGAIN (if they played).

Rafique is a great player against this weaker (compared to Test teams, not US) teams and I expect his best coming against Canada. God knows, our top order will make sure that Rafique gets to bat.

all,

Look at rafiq..two 6's....gorgeous!!!

Sanwar did a good job replacing sumon. But now the selectors will be confused...

Masri didn't do good in bowling....but two 4's at the end....not BAddddd.

Ehasanul scored freely with one 6...he did well.

And what happ to kapali.....is he turning into a bowler???

I like this team 11, only I am suggesting sumon instead of tushar.

what u all think?

I think assessing each player after every match against Namibia isn't really helpful for any sort of prediction for the world cup. We could assess their long-term ODI temparament after this series ends: like who consistently did good throughout, or progressively got worse or better. But we can't really judge their ability through this, not against Namibia.

Take Shevag in the NZ tour: he did bad in the test series and in the initial ODIs, but then progressively got better and scored heaps of runs in the face of adversity. That's the sort of parameter I am looking for in this Bangladesh series.

Ok, now I am feeling a bit better. At least its confirmed that we won. Despite the fact that our bowlers did not do a great job and we lost 7 wkts, anything is better than a loss.

Noew we need some real performances to boost confidence.

Default Tusher

Not to hit on him but the guy needs to get some runs under his belts.
With w more matches in the tour, he should make the best of the Namibian attack. With no disrecpect to their bowlers, we need to get some runs against Namibia if we are to have any hope of upsetting one of the big boys and hold ourselves against Canada and Kenya.

I am encouraged by Seezan's performance. I don't want to read too much into it but he did do a good job, 52 off 85 balls with 2 fours and a six. Thats the sort of anchor role we need someone to play to complement Rokon. The sort of role that we always hoped that Golla would play. If Seezan can do that, great. On top of that, he does provide a decent seam bowling option. He didn't do badly against WI in BD, SA is likely to suit his bowling better. I am starting to warm to this guy, more so than Hannan, who it seems is a hit and miss sort of guy. We already have that in Rokon, I would rather have a more circumspect batsman at the other end. Lets hope the form continues. Also, Tehsin bhai is right, Tushar needs to score runs.

As for Masri, he bowled eight overs. Thats the most important thing. I don't really care how many runs he gave away or how many wickets he got. He needs match practice, get his rhythm back and that takes a bit of time. Atleast he is out there and bowling. That in itself should be a cause for celebration. And Kapali got 3 wickets. Well done!

Default Kaps and Masri

I'm happy with Masri, he has been out so long it's good to see him back.

As for Kaps, he got into the sides mostly as a bowler. He did pretty good in both the national and Dhaka league with bowling. It's good to see Pilot using Kaps for this.

If he clicks in etiher bat or bowl on almost every match, we should be good.

Default 35 Extras!!!

BD gave away 35 extras including 22 wides and 4 no balls. Apart from Masri, I believe all of the other bowlers played in either or both of two previous games. So I am bit disappointed that they gave away that many extra runs. But maybe the BD bowlers tried a few things when they not getting wickets - at least that's what I hope - and it wasn't because of eratic bowling.

On another note, I think Sanwar should play in the remaining matches as he seems to have the temperment to hold the middle order.

Default THE Team

I'm not sure if this match should serve as a barometer - even just going forward - towards choosing the team.

I think the main idea - acclimatizing - should continue through the next two matches. At the same time, whatever they try, new or old, needs to be done very seriously, so that they don't lose.

This is how some players ought to be chosen for the next 4 matches -

MASRI - in NAM (1), in SA (2) = 3/4
Talha - in NAM (1), in SA (2) = 3/4
Taposh B. - in NAM (1), in SA (1) = 2/4
Manjurul I - in NAM (1), in SA (1) = 2/4
Rafique - in NAM (1), in SA (1) = 2/4

Kapali - 2+2 = 4/4
Sanwar - 2+2 = 4/4
Tushar - 1+2 = 3/4
Hannan - 1+1 = 2/4
Rokon - 2+2 = 4/4
Ash - 2+2 = 4/4
Bashar - 1+1 = 2/4 (he gets bored too easilly).
Seezan - 1+1 = 2/4 (interchanging with Hannan)

Yes, I am actually suggesting that Tushar and Bashar interchange with each other.

Make sure that Manjurul plays the last game in SA.

Masri needs to play 2 in SA, to get his rhythm. If we are worried with his fitness a week before the cup, then we should be seriously concerned with the overall strategy around him. If not, then let him loose.

Taposh - rest him when possible. He has the habit (on or off field) of injuring himself always.

Rafique - The only test team against whom I expect him to play is WI (also, the pitch condition favors his type more than anywhere else).

MAIN CONCERN - Is the bowling rhythm, with so many mix and matches. This really is impacting.

Default At least I went to sleep in a good mood

Yes I am sorry to give you wrong info, as I saw the result on the Namibian forum - which is not as reliable.

But at least I went to sleep knowing that Bangladesh won - doesn't matter by 3 wickets or 13 runs.
