Bangladesh in England: Test report card

With the much awaited Test series between Bangladesh-England ending disappointingly for Bangladesh, it is time to evaluate the individual performances. Coming back from a series victory, Bangladesh crashed down to earth with some less than stellar performances. On a scale of 1 through10, here is how I would rate the individual performances. more...

 

The Lordís of disaster

More than thirty-six hours have passed since the end of the Lordís Test. I spent this entire time blaming everyone for the heart-wrenching result. Finally, I have calmed down enough to logically think over the whole debacle. more...

 

About failures - a history lesson

We, humans, have a likelihood of wiping out memory, be it, short or long. And hence when confronted by clichť of history repeating itself we stand confused. Letís take a step back; this is not a history lesson. The attempt is to humbly outline the achievements of an underdog, the Bangladesh cricket team, in the recent history. The history part is a simple analogy and the idea is to draw relevance that progress does not happen in a linear curve, rather almost in a burst after long gaps of silence. more...

 

Bangladesh at Lordís: Some random thoughts

Those were the days of newspapers and radios. Those were the days when test matches would have a rest day on Sundays in England. So much has changed since then in the world of cricket, but Lordís remain the ultimate ground were all cricketers want to play a test match. more...

Tour matches: More than a warmup

The key to any great team is depth. This has been proven in every sport and the Australian cricket team is the best example. With a team like that, players are always motivated to give their best knowing that someone else could easily take up the place should they fail. Bangladesh is finally starting to enjoy the emergence of depth to its cricketing ranks and performances in the tour matches will potentially determine the final playing eleven. more...

Test batting tactics for the England tour

I believe there is general agreement that the fortunes of the BD team rest on the batsmen. I do not think we can expect our bowling attack to get England out twice in the test matches. Consequently the onus is upon our batsmen to ensure that we put up a respectable show. It is time we begin to objectively consider the appropriate tactics that our batsmen should adopt against the bowlers we are likely to face.  more...

 

Target: England

Good news! The Tigers are in peak form right now. They have recently won their very first Test, Test series and ODI series. We have never had the fortune to see so many in-form Tigers roaming around. Mashrafee is back, and he is back with a bang! With his new found strength with the bat and wilyness with ball, he is in rare form.  more...

 

The last bowling spot for the England tour

Most of us had assumed that the BCB would follow the current practice of touring parties to pick two different sides for a tour, one for the Test series and one for the ODI series, with the necessary players being exchanged when one part of the tour is over and the oher is about to commence. However, it appears that the BCB will pick just one squad for the England tour that will play in the Tests and the ODIs against England and Australia. more...

 

The last batting spot for the England tour

Six batsmen appear to be set for the tour to England this May, barring injuries. Javed Omar has been discussed to death but at present, there are no experienced alternative openers for what is likely to be a critical tour in terms of Bangladesh\'s perception in the Test arena. more...
