    'Tis raining. Pity, the Bangers actually looked like they were on course for a wicket soon.

    Board should start funding a good pace academy asap. Serious lack of implementation on this department is hurting our cricket badly

    Target is now reduced to 183 off 27 overs which means more 105 runs off 13.2 overs with 9 wickets remaining. Let's see what happens

    This game reminds me of SAF vs NZ game in WC 2003, SAF scored 310 in 50 overs and NZ had scored the D/L score with 9 wickets in hand with Fleming tonn-ing for NZ. Hope BAN does the same here.. Chance here for them to win this.. They got a good start

    Indeed, well done the Bangas, but it's really something that needs looking at.

    Yeah, just saw it.

    Not surprised at all really. We've seen it with Imran Farhat, Anirudh Srikkanth, Jaydev Shah and others in the past. The SC is full of rubbish like this.

    Let's keep our fingers crossed. Last time he was selected for England U19 games, the selectors took some slack from the public. But the guy responded with two match winning performances. So I'm not going to spout things so I don't have to eat my own words.

    True. The thing is that the best pacemen from Bangladesh (Rubel) averages around 75, which I think even a few posters on these boards could achieve. All Bangladesh needs for now is to produce the equivalent of a honest county journeyman, which means somebody able to average around 38-40 in today's age, then I can see them becoming quite a decent contender in world cricket, expecially at home. So I wouldn't mind seeing a few dibbly-dobblers bowling tight spells of 20-10-40-1 at 120-125, instead of showponies able to bowl a bit of random inswing, outswing, reverse swing and cutters at 135-140ks but getting hammered because they have no control at all.

    I'll never forget when Gheddafi's son played for Perugia, a minnow in Serie A, winning his only game 2-1 against a (top) team, Juventus, of which he owned 5%. He got even a contract for a full year for Udinese afterwards. An epic pay-to-play scenario.

    Anyway be wary of reverse-nepotism, expecially if the player's only decent/average he usually ends up criticized a lot more than what he deserves (ex. Imran Farhat)

    Rubel is hardly the best pacer from Bangladesh. A lot of their pacers are injured iirc.
