Thread: ***Official*** West Indies in Bangladesh 2012

    If it's the kind of game where you've sauntered your way to 500+ on the second day then you have to think about giving your bowlers as much time as possible to get the oppo out, and at the very least you'll be putting some faith in your batsmen to hold up second time around. Making your decisions based around the rest of the match being an absolute catastrophe won't win you many games.
    Not only did the declaration significantly increase West Indies' chances of losing (lets face it by their standards this 240odd is a good score already - they usually manage one sub-200 score a match) but it hurt their chances of winning too.

    West Indies have an awful batting line-up and tons of bowling. None of your arguments hold water. Why give a team like Bangladesh hope? Grind them into the dust. Bangladesh don't have the mentality to bat for a draw

    West Indies should have looked at scoring 750-800 runs in the match. As it happens they may even lose with that 800 - that would be somewhat freakish. The quickest way to score that many runs is to increase the aggression past 500. You lose far less time that way than declaring at 527 and having to bat to 250 or so - which you might not even get but you certainly can't bat with any great freedom. If you bat with freedom past 500 then you get runs quickly. If you make it to 600-650 then you're almost certain to be safe, you maximise time left in the match and you set a much tougher follow-on target. If WI wanted or had to bat again then they spend less time consolidating or batting with low aggression.

    To put it another way you can get those 100 runs batting with total freedom against a knackered attack on a less worn pitch in the first innings, or you can get them in the 3rd innings when you're worried about losing wickets, which will then have a knock-on effect to the rest of the innings.

    Ignoring the fact that teams will get bowled out trying to score say 250 instead of 150 - I reckon it would take you another 40 overs to score 250 instead of 150 simply because the first 100 out of 250 will typically be batted normally at around 3 an over - and then you'll lose 2-3 wickets typically as well - which effects the rest of the 150 runs you get. So 30 or so extra overs initially and a few more because of the 2-3 extra wickets and so greater consolidation potential and/or less able batsmen at the crease.

    750-800? lol am I reading it right? Windies were probably reckless going in with 5 specialist batsmen and declaring at 500 but this is stretching it a bit.

    can't believe tino didn't save them
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    What an exciting game on prospect, Gazi cleaning up the WI tail, leaving Bangladesh to chase 245 for the win, if Tamim plays with his head, and the rest of the batsmen don't gift their wickets then this could be on

    Nearly every single time the Bangers are chasing any sort of total, the one thing I keep hearing from everyone is that they'll win if Tamim gets going.

    Never happens. Hope it doesn't today as well because I'll be $40 poorer.

    Come on Bangladesh. Be a great win if they pull it off. A repeat of 100 off the first 14 overs would do again.

    Would love runs from Siddique/Nafees. I back the both of them and would really like to see them back up the runs of their teammates.
