Default Do we have a chance to improve on this?

Except for Hannan Sarkar, Mushfiquer Rahman and Alok Kapali, everybody from 2003 test are in the party. I think the team that will play the first test will include these eight. Who will be the other three? Can they improve on the result? Where will the improvements come from.

But then it was by no means a bad showing (at least in the bowling side). We need our batting side to score atleast 100 more runs per inning. The new look English batting side is a much improved bunch from their 2003 counterpart. Consequently, the bowlers may find repeating their success of bowling out the side under 300 runs a lot harder! Go ask the South Africans and they will tell you.

A very important difference that you did not mention is where that match was played and where the upcoming series will be played. Our biggest problem on this tour will be the playing conditions in England. Although it is easy to say that we need to score a 100 extra runs than we did 2 years ago, in reality, we will struggle to actually match the scores from two years ago, unless our batting clicks from top to bottom! Now how hopeful are you of that?

Yeah....the English Conditions are the key words....But then again..when u come to think of it....In that series Mushfiqur was our star(!) performer with the bat and ball; who cant even get into the side now....We certainly have grown in confidence and the batsmen shud be aiming to show their real strength this time around.....

You are right about the english conditions. But a few member of the chosen squad had some exposure to it as a part of U-19 team. Additionally, the A-team had a similar experience in Zimbabwe's bouncy and seemer friendly wicket. Our senior team had Australian experience as wel. In all, I do not think (perhaps hope) that the batting will be better that the nightmare scenario some of us are anticipating.

honestly, i'm scared. i understand that we do have some guys from the ex-U19 side touring England, but the quality of opponent also has to be taken into account. as for the australia and zimbabwe experiences, well, england is different from those conditions. not only will the ball bounce but it will move around and do all kinds of crazy stuff. imo, we will fail badly in the test series and then suffer a couple of huge defeats in the natwest series, unless our batsmen really do stuff that they haven't till now.

I agree. I said this a while back, if we play as well as we did against Zimbabwe, we will get thrashed. No doubt about it. For us to really do as well as we all hope to do, our boys will have to raise their game to a new level. Especially our batsmen. They will have to show the kind of application that they have never done before! If they can really do that, then we might have a thing or two to celebrate come June!
