Yay, I made a match thread before anyone else. First time ever?

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Aftab Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan (capt), Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah, Naeem Islam, Suhrawadi Shuvo, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam, Rubel Hossain.

England: Alastair Cook (capt), Craig Kieswetter, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior (wk), Luke Wright, Stuart Broad, Tim Bresnan, Graeme Swann, James Tredwell.


0734: Bangladesh make a couple of changes - batsman Junaid Siddique has been dropped and paceman Mashrafe Mortaza, who struggled on his comeback from injury on Sunday, has also been left out - Rubel Hossain and Suhrawadi Shuvo come in.

0731: England have won the toss (again) and will field first (again) - and I can chastise myself as they've picked a second spinner. However, it's an enforced change as Ryan Sidebottom is nursing a thigh injury - off-spinner James Tredwell makes his England debut. (Sidebottom is out for the rest of the series)

Better start by England this time, much cleverer bowling. 10/0
 
Tamim Iqbal somehow stays in there doesn't he? He goes after everything! He could not be a Jedi - the boy has no patience!

He is a joy to watch at the crease and his tempremant is improving!
 
Tamim holed out! 52/1 after 10 overs and just the incentive that England need to settle down the game and dictate terms.
 
This Aftab Ahmed has a gift for batting, but mentally doesn't have a clue! Bresnan has spotted his poor temperament and just snuck a medium pacer onto the stumps through a wild swing. Easy!
 
Bangla 66/2 after 13.4 overs

Partnership needed here if bangla are to set a meaningful total.
 
Its all well getting a partnership and holding ur wicket but you gotta keep milking singles. 1 an over isnt good enough continiously, kayes thinks he playing in a test match.

Bang 72-2 at 17 overs.
 
99/2 after 22 overs

Bangla need to be aiming for a total of 250 atleast which means two batsmen atleast need to make meaningful scores!
 
Bangla playing Swann a lot better then in 1st match so far!
 
Bangla need to play luke wright alot better here. Hes getting through his overs for next to nothing.
 
Bangla need to force pace here with out losing any wickets!
 
Bangla 164/3 after 36 overs

Good platform here set by Bangla!
 
Bangla 210/4 with around 6 overs to go now...
 
Bangladesh seem to have lost their way a bit - they worked through the innings to save wickets to have a real charge in the last 10 overs, but that charge never really happened.

However, the lower middle-order has done pretty well in the last few overs of the innings. 14 runs off the last over, Bangla reach 260/6 in 50 overs.
 
261 to win. 5 an over leaves England as slight favourites but there's something to bowl at this time for Bangladesh, so you never know.
 
Wow, good effort from Bangladesh. England's bowling (barring Swann) has been mediocre this series, but absolutely no credit taken away from Bangladesh's batting. One player is always, always, playing a good knock these days in every match for Bangladesh - be it an ODI, Test, or a T20. It was Iqbal last game, Mushfiqur this game.

Should be a good chase, but England should do it easily if they play sensibly.
 
That's 34 runs off the last 3 overs, and 45 off the last 5.

Pretty decent total in the end, though I guess England should expect to reach it comfortably.
 
She Waddy Waddy hitting a 6 and a 4 in the last over there
 
Competitive score from Bangladesh, and England will need to have their wits about them to chase this.

If 'Desh can get early wickets it will be a very interesting game.

England are the only test nation to have a 100% record against them ...
 
Once we had six wickets left at the end of the 40th over we should have targeted 275+. But anyway we have something to bowl at. We have added one more specialist spinner to the team, Shuvo and Rubel returns. Rasel would have been very handy on this pitch. We need to get quick breakthroughs and not allow Kieswetter to settle. But I think Collingwood will be the thorn once again.

Precisely. Overs 41-47 were the slow ones - the last three still made up for it, partially.
 
If Bangladesh do win though, let's hope the win tonight gives them loads and loads of confidence and momentum to take into the third and final game, and hopefully we can have a fitting decider match then.
 
Okay so we bat all the way and Pietersen is due an innings. But I'm not that confident. apart from Collingwood there is nobody you can rely on with the slow, low, spin-heavy run chases, and he can't score in every game. If early wickets fall, this could be the day.

Its a test chase at best in these conditions. England will have to bat well to reach the Target.
 
Anyone see the Kayes innings? normally I would watch it but I've been in lectures. looks like he wasted a lot of deliveries, useful runs but poor SR
 
KP at number 3? okay so he kind of has to looking at the lineup but I still think 4 or 5 suits him way better

I don't really rate him. And neither does Siddons but there is little anyone can do if he keeps scoring. I don't see him as a long-term partner for Tamim. Zunaed is much more talented. But whenever Imrul is dropped he scores heavily in the domestic league and returns and this time he seems to be doing ok in International cricket. So as long as he keeps scoring I have no complaints.

Competitive total is 260.

What the Deshi bowling like?
 
Shafiul Islam to Kieswetter, FOUR, 84.9 mph, dropped! Kieswetter is dropped by Rahim first ball, pushing forward to a fullish ball he gets a thickish edge which flies between keeper and slip. Another let-off on nought for Kieswetter

Shafiul Islam to Kieswetter, OUT, 88.5 mph, he's gone this time! Kieswetter advances down the pitch to a similar ball as the previous one and goes for a drive. The edge was thicker this time and flew fast and low to slip, who clung on. First blood to Bangladesh!

Excellent stuff Shafi!

Good to see Rubel back..I wonder why was he left out for the 1st odi!
Mashrafe

Oh got it to swing back in. Swing and a miss. Great delivery.

Mashrafe has got his work cut out..Youngsters have done quite well in his absence and he really needs to wort hard to earn his place in the side..
 
Shafiul: 86, 85, 89, 88, 86, 86

Rubel: 84, 85, 81, 86, 85, 85

Shafiul seems quicker than Rubel. They are the fastest opening duo in the subcontienent.

Tamin ,Zunaed And Nafeez should be in for T-20 world cup and imrul seems to be decent Test player and average ODI player .
 
Craig Kieswetter :))

He hasn't played one proper shot against us. All his runs came from edges.

I've seen Rubel hit 90mph plus, maybe 92mph. What's Shaiful's highest recorded speed?

Nope it's time we stopped recyling ICL trash like Nafees and Aftab.

i hope mortaza lose weight annd get fit for T-20 World Cup .

Shafiul , Rubel , Mortaza , Shakib , Abdul Razzak awesome bowling attack to have but they need to find decent no :- 3 batsman and i think Nafeez can do that job very well in world cup T-20 .
 
Equinox said:

:)) He might have meant Nafees Iqbal. Shahriar Nafees isn't that good a 20/20 batsman. Aftab I would include though. What are your thoughts on Alok Kapali?
 
Highest I have seen from Shafiul is 90MPH in New Zealand,

And Pietersen gets a luccky edge for four. Shakib should come in and bowl one over and take Pietersen out.

Aftab should be drop but Nafeez is awesome No:-3 batsman to have in the side for world cup T-20 .

I m talking about nafeez iqbal not that dummy opener.

Alok is going through a rough time personally. He withdrew from the BCB squad recently. But I prefer him over Aftab if he can get over his personal problems then I'm sure he will get a chance eventually.

I don't even remember the last time Nafees Iqbal played for Bangladesh. He got a century against England playing for Bangladesh A. But he is struggling in the domestic league. I am surprised Nazmuddin has been left out of the T20 squad. He scored a 200 recently.
 
Bangla need to get another wicket or two here and really put some pressure on england.
 
My T-20 Team of Bangladesh :-

1.Tamim Iqbal
2.Junaid Siddique
3.Mushfiqur Rahim ( VC And WK )
4.Shakib Ul Hassan ( Captain )
5.Mohammad Ashraful
6.Naeem Islam
7.Mahmudullah
8.Mashrafe Mortaza
9.Abdul Razzak
10.Rubel Hussain
11.Shafiul Islam

12th Man :- Syed Rasel

best team for bangladesh huge improvement by the team as a bowling unit but there batting needs to be improved .

Nazmudden is complete failure batsman .
 
Cook should've been gone too, but anyway this is a massive opening for the Banglas, just gotta hold onto their catches!
 
Collingwood was the danger man - the real match winner in this side.

A real opening here for the Banglas!!
 
Captaincy bringing the best out of Cook so far(admittedly early days and weak oppo).

He's the key wicket.

108 for 3 off 23, Shakib's on and causing Morgan some headache.
 
cook out as well haha! England will have to play really well to win from here. The bangladesh spinner, have really applied the breaks!
 
England 4 down.

Prior, Wirght, Bresnan, Broad, Swann can all bat so Bangla will have to keep taking wickets here!
 
The English main dish is always FISH and CHIPS

But, at this point they are the ones that are getting battered!!
 
Morgan and Prior will have to step up here. England would have hoped Cook , KP and Collingwood would get the bulk of the runs today.



Bangladesh 260/6 (50 ov)
England 113/4 (24.6 ov)

England require another 148 runs with 6 wickets and 25.0 overs remaining
 
Hasan to Cook, out Caught by Rahim at cover!! Captain gets Captain! Tossed up delivery spinning away from Cook, he stays on the back foot and gets a faint outside edge to Rahim who fumbles initially but takes it on the second attempt. Timely wicket for Bangladesh and England are in a bit of trouble here. Cook c Rahim b Hasan 60(61) [4s-7 6s-1]
23.1 Hasan to Cook, THATS OUT!! Caught!!


he is better then our kami as far keeping is concern give pakistani nationality :p HHhahHAHAH

don,t forget how he make pakistan bowling look mediocre with his big sixes in t-20 in 2008 in pakistan he is way better some bangladeshi players
 
3 lbw decisions not give banglas way. They all looked pretty clean out. Could be matchcosting decisions
 
Salaam all,

I doubt it. This year he has dropped 7 already. I am keeping tabs. Few went to hit a century.
 
Abdur Razzak to Prior, OUT

England require another 63 runs with 5 wickets and 10.3 overs remaining

There's a still hope for Bangladesh..
 
England should take the PP now these guys are in there
