Will Bangladeshi players play under lights in any of the warm up matches? Because the first match of Bangladesh against Canada is a day night game, so ...

There probably will be some rain around as the weather forecast says 40% chance of rain and the sign says (yahoo) scattered thunderstorms for the whole week.

Rain has stopped again.

I have never heard it before to lit fire on center of pitch to dry the pitch after rain.

Gautang were 58/8 in 20 overs against Namibia. There is only G Smith in Gautang lineup who has some international experience.

KZN won the toss. May be they will decide to bowl first.

In that case, the match will be over in no time - may be Bangladesh will get bowled out for 120 odd runs - just like Gauteng in today's match.

Default Playing XI

Bangladesh have the following playing XI (they are leaving Sanwar, Sumon & Talha)

1) Rokon
2) Hannan
3) Mohammad Ashraful,
4) Ehsanul Haque,
5) *+Khaled Mashud,
6) Alok Kapali,
7) Khaled Mahmud,
8) Mohammad Rafique,
9) Mashrafe Mortaza,
10) Manjural Islam,
11) Tapash Baisya.

And this is KZN's playing XI:

1) DJ Watson
2) M Amla c & b Mashrafe Mortaza 0 5*
3) HM Amla,
4) *DM Benkenstein,
5) JC Kent,
6) DL Brown,
7) F Lazarus,
8) GH Bodi,
9) RE Veenstra,
10) ANW Tweedie,
11) N Dladla

* You can guess why I included that - just when I was trying to copy KZN's playing XI, I saw Mashrafee taking his maiden wicket in South Africa.

Default Monju bowling poorly

Is Monju tired or something? His first 4 overs has cost him a lot of runs - he is giving away more than 4 runs an over, on the other hand, Mashrafee's Econ in first 4 overs is 2.25.

In fact, I thought that it would be the other way around, since this is Mashrafee's first tour in South Africa.

Default Reality check

Monju alone didn't bowl poorly. Rafique and Sujon are also bowling the same way - giving away boundaries in each and every over.

And suddenly, Bangladesh has found itself playing against a tougher opposition - after Namibia.

KZN are now 68/1 in 15 overs, with 83 match experienced DJ Watson scoring at nearly 75% strike rate. All on a sudden, Bangladesh has started to play like they do against other test teams in an ODI.

There is a reality check - once Monju was being expensive, Sujon came into bowl in his place, and (now Seejan has started bowling - you'd remember that he wasn't given the ball in the entire one day series vs Namibia) Rafique replaced Mashrafee after he bowled only 5 overs.

That is, both Sujon and Rafique came into bowl inside the first 15 overs. Sujon bowled 3 overs and Rafique bowled 2 overs in the first 15 overs.

And the 16th over is now being bowled by Seejan.

And Tapash Baisya is in the side. Now I am really seriously starting to believe that Tapash is may be injured.

Default Wait a minute

Wait a minute. This is a 35 over game, right? So may be the bowler's restrictions (on bowling overs) is maybe upto 7th or 8th?

Well in that case, it was OK to give both Monju and Mashrafe a break after the initial 5 over spell from both of them.

Default Seejan took the 2nd wicket

Would you believe it?

The ball swung and missed the bat and may be hit the stumps then. (could not copy it - as there is no 2nd page on commentary).

Default The dream of Seejan is over

21.6 Ehsanul Haque to HM Amla, two runs, to sq leg area
21.5 Ehsanul Haque to Benkenstein, one run, to mid off must run quick
there a fielder picks has a shy missers
21.4 Ehsanul Haque to HM Amla, one run, to 3rd man
21.3 Ehsanul Haque to HM Amla, FOUR, shot drives this high over mid on
to bring up the 100 runs for Kzn
21.2 Ehsanul Haque to Benkenstein, one run, to 3rd man
21.2 Ehsanul Haque to Benkenstein, wide: no run
21.1 Ehsanul Haque to HM Amla, one run, this in between keeper & bwd
point


This is Seejan's bowling figure now:

4 0 22 1 5.50 (0nb, 2w) River End

A while back, before the last over, he was bowling at a run rate of at 3.4 something.
