    Bangladesh Believes India Has A Weaker Bowling Attack



    The title says it all... Man is this guy for real, does he actually think his team's bowling is better than India's?

    http://worldcup.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1758841.cms

    Man, I want us to destroy these Bangladeshis after hearing a statement like this, like bowl them for less than 120 and win by ten wickets.

    "Our batting will be the key against India. They must take advantage of a slightly weaker Indian bowling attack. If we can upset either India or Sri Lanka, we can progress to the second round," remarked Aminul Islam, first Test captain of the Bangladesh team.

    mortaze is superb. now days, in this form, comparing the two teams...id have to go with bangladeshi paceman over pathan, zaheer, agarkar. munaf is still better, but for the most part...sheesh. 1 billion people and zero genuine fasties.

    That quote has no context, so it's hard to say what he meant. He might have meant India's bowling attack is weaker relative to Bangladesh's batting, Sri Lanka's bowling, or previous Indian bowling attacks. Title of the thread is misleading as well.

    Yeah, dead right. Turbs is completely over-reacting IMO, I don't think he meant that BD's attack was better or anything. Just that he thought India had a bowling attack that could be exploited, which let's face it, a lot of people would agree with.

    The misleading and clearly dishonest interpretation of the Aminul quote in the original article reinforces this:

    (just put it in the sports context)

    Regardless of whether it's strong than India's, relatively or otherwise, Bangladesh's bowling attack is looking fairly solid now. Mashrafe Mortaza would not be too far from the Indian team, while Rafique and Razzak would challenge for some other Test nations in ODI cricket. The weak link is as always the lack of a third (and often second) seamer.

    Mashrafe Mortaza is not as good as Zaheer Khan or Munaf Patel but is defenitely on a par with Agit Agarkar and better than Irfan Pathan IMO.

    What he actually said (and not what OP said) is not ludicrous at all. And Mortaza would make the Indian team.

    Got to agree (for once) with that. Not actually as stupid as it first sounds.

    nice one Evermind

    Clearly misleading thread. He meant India has weaker bowling attack than the other team (Srilanka)

    Hmmm, if that is so, my apologies. I jumped to conclusions way too soon.

    Well it's not a particularly good bowling attack I give you that.
