Nice Cover Drive from Javed Omar off hoggard

9-0

England bowlers off target at the moment...

Amjid Javed

Bangladesh 18/0

nice start here...

waheed what are conditions like?

waheed
26th May 2005, 15:33
22-0

Javed Omar survived edged to Flintoff of a 'No ball' but foot was well behind the line...
Just aswell Flintoff did not take a difficult catch to his left.

Umpires seem to be very harsh on noballs these days, epsecially one day series in Windies...

Good start by Bangladesh, England off color not using coditions in early morning start.

Alright conditions, 25-0 now.
Typical crap english bowling attack!
COME ON BANGLADESH!

Officer Barbrady
26th May 2005, 15:38
Bring on Flintoff he'll get the wickets or even Jones.

Hashim
26th May 2005, 15:41
But there more crap than hoggard and harmissomn!

Bangladesh will win white wash inshallaah!

31-0
cracking four!

Officer Barbrady
26th May 2005, 15:41
O wait sorry no need for Flintoff or Jones (neither is in my FC team!) GO hoggard!

waheed
26th May 2005, 15:41
Good to see Bangladesh trying to play some Postive Cricket, Javed Omar hitting Hoggard back over his head for 4.

Just don't need to get over confident, 31-0

waheed
26th May 2005, 15:43
Harmison gets it on target, extra bounce get Nafees in trouble and caught well in the slips gone for 8.

England needed that.

33-1

Hashim
26th May 2005, 15:43
lost a wicket, DAMN!

Hashim
26th May 2005, 15:44
Nafeez looked okay too, just setling in!

Amjid Javed
26th May 2005, 15:45
9.2 Harmison to Nafees Iqbal, OUT: gone! this time edged straight to
Trescothick at first slip, Harmison strikes

Bangladesh 31/1

damn

What a stoke by Bashar the skipper, first ball!

Officer Barbrady
26th May 2005, 15:46
The floodgates have opened. Hopefully success for Hoggard and Jones to follow...

waheed
26th May 2005, 15:49
Hoggard strikes removing the captain, poor shot from Bashar trying to pull Hoggard goes up in the air and caught by wicket keeper.

poor cricket...

Amjid Javed
26th May 2005, 15:55
bashar always seems 2 play to many shots early on... good start wasted by bangla!

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:00
England still not bowling as well as they can, not bowling enough balls that the batsmen have to play at. Bangladesh haved been able to leave a lot of wide balls.

First shout for LBW in the 12 over !!!
and 10 NO BALLS

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:03
Absolute Jaffa bowled by Hoggard got to be the best bowl of the summer :)

Pitched on middle stump, swung and bounced away from the edge of the bat... just did too much.. unplayable delivery.

Amjid Javed
26th May 2005, 16:07
seems like aftab ahmed has come out and is gona play some shots....

16 off 11 balls... inshallah he will get some more runs...

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:12
That's the problem Bangladesh is are playing far too many shots for my liking, it is good to be positve but they are going to far and at times treating it like an ODI with some of the shots...

Flintoff and Jones into the attack, sure they will make the batsmen play more often.

Hashim
26th May 2005, 16:13
Bangladesh playing well, lost 2 unfortunet wickets, but batting beautifyully, lovely strokes!

I like the batting style of javed omar, very good.

61-2

Officer Barbrady
26th May 2005, 16:13
Waheed how is Flintoff's bowling looking since he is returning from injury? 100% by the one-days?

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:15
Aftab playing one too many shots... and he is also caught in the slips for 20, playing drive without any real foot movement, very loose play.

Hashim think you are watching a different game to me...

3 down !!!

Amjid Javed
26th May 2005, 16:18
15.2 Flintoff to Aftab Ahmed, OUT: gone this time! good length delivery
outside the off stump, Aftab ends up with a thick edge trying to
drive it away, not so lucky this time around, taken on the second
attempt by Strauss at second slip

Bangladesh 65/3

grrrrrrrr what stupidity!

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:18
Flintoff not bowling as quick as he did last year bowling in the low 80mph at the moment, but he is still getting that extra bounce with his height and effort he puts in.

Has been the best of the seamers so far, bowling a tight line outside off stump, making the batsmen play and miss, with excellant seam position, going straight down the pitch :)

Looking good, think he can bowl be able to bowl 15 overs per day, and will definetly be ready for ODI's.

England need to look after him and no to over bowl him, use him in short spells.

But looking good, well ahead of schedule.

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:24
Javed Omar gone...

Jones with well pitched up swinging delivery, edges to slip.

J Omar gone for 22.

65-4

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:26
Musfahiqar Rahim, 16yrd old comes out to bat with Bangladesh in trouble 65-4.

Bangaldesh need a partnership up until lunch...

Jones 2-2-0-1

Amjid Javed

Marooned I posted comments about Flintoff earlier... see above..

Flintoff 80-83mph
Jones High 80mph, got upto 88mph
Hoggard low to mid 80mph
Harmison high 80s mph

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:35
Another corker of a delivery from Jones, pitched middle and leg and straightened hit infront of the stumps but going over the top.

Jones looking very good, follows up with another swinging delivery, getting late swing.

waheed
26th May 2005, 16:41
16yrd Rahim being pushed back by Flintoff and gets hit in the box by Flintoff...
Good to see him get up quickly and push hit the ball through the covers next ball.

Seems to have mature head on his shoulders and seems to have a bit of time to play his shots. Tighter technique than hhis colleagues.

Thanks that's slower than normal stuff from Flintoff. Anyway should be back to his normal late 80s stuff in a couple of weeks. The rest are at their usual speeds. Forget batting Flintoff is crucial with the ball for the Ashes.

Good to note Jones is bowling well, England seem to underrate him.

Haven't seen this guy yet. Does he really look 16 or did he go to the same place as Afridi / Abdul Razzaq to get his birth certificate? :D :))

True. Hes probably my favourite of the Pommie bowlers, but a lot of English fans dont rate him for some reason (even Vaughan appears to be in the same position).

Dreadful start for the Bangladeshis so far. Made the game difficult for themselves

Hash

don't see anything wrong with Afridi's age to be honest

Good Session for England after slow start from Hoggard and Harmison, with a few no ball problems.

Bangladesh started brightly but allways looked like they were playing too many shots before they got settlied in... from 31-0 to 85-5 in the space of 1 hr.

Jones was the outstanding bowler bowling at good pace in late 80mph range and getting late swing causing big problems for Bangladesh players, would have troubled most batsmen on this performance, unlucky not to get only one wicket.

Bangladesh need some sort of partnership after lunch and hope the sun comes out brightly so the ball may swing less...

They would be happy to get to 200 at this stage... but not impossible as they have good lower order hitters in Khalid Mahsud, Rafiqe, Murtaza

Uzi
26th May 2005, 17:10
Bangladesh have been playing very ordinary shots and seem to want to swipe at the ball even when it is full.

I'm not sure if they know how to play a test match because they are playing it like an ODI.

Daoud
26th May 2005, 17:13
Well Bangladesh's tail regularly out performs the top order, so I wouldnt be surprised if they reach 200

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:07
Good to see ECB doing some good work, by offering so many schools the opportunity to come to Lords to watch Test Match Cricket.

Only wish Pakistan would do this more readily and we can more filled stadiums for Tests aswell as ODI's.

Harmison and Hoggard starting after lunch...

88-5

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:11
Hoggard strikes after lunch with an inswinger, a bit unlucky ball would have missed off stump going by Hawkeye, but watching it live looked like a good shout.

88-6

Abdul Qadir 236
26th May 2005, 18:13
2 big errors from hariharan

rahim edges through the slip cordon off harmison

93-6

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:20
Rafique Run out by Hoggard..

Raffique unlucky diving and his bat bouncing up in the air, end of bat was over the line but in the air at the time the bails came off..

Last thing Bangladesh needed...

100 not up and 7 down !!!

Abdul Qadir 236
26th May 2005, 18:22
Rahim plays a glorious cut shot then is beaten by Hoggard - 98/7

Abdul Qadir 236
26th May 2005, 18:25
98/8

Harmy bowls Mashrafe

backed away to leg - surprised as he looked good against India lol

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:26
Good full length straight delivery cleans up Mortaza for Zero by Harmison

98-8

Mortaza looked very poor, moving too leg to avoid the ball every time, he had a bit of talent with the bat before his injury, on that evidence he was worse than Walsh !!!

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:30
Rahim bowled by Hoggard excellant reward for good outswing bowling.

Rahim 19 from 56 balls

Hasan Raza still has the highest score by youngest batsmen 24 he scored against Zimbabwe in 1996.

Shayan
26th May 2005, 18:30
9 down..

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:36
100 up for Bangladesh, something for them to cheer about.

103-9

What lead will England get by the end of the 1st days play?

220-240 runs

Waht is the record for end of day 1.

waheed
26th May 2005, 18:40
Bangladesh 108 allout in 38 overs !!!

Hoggard get the final wicket caught behind by keeper to finish with 4-48.

Jones and Hoggard the pick of the bowlers.

This is embarassing. I am cringing on the Bangladeshi's behalf.

But as people keep saying 'they have good players, they have a good future', yeah right.

Tres 165*
Vaughan 103*

England 365-1 at lunch

I think they should both retire, let Thorpe and Bell play for session or less and then declare.

Hash
27th May 2005, 17:19
England should declare now and win the match today

waheed
27th May 2005, 18:19
Murtaza makes the breakthrough with an excellant delivery getting extra bounce and mocing away, Vaughan out for 120.

409-2

England should carry on and keep on batting, a big crowd is expected tomorrow, they would like to see Flintoff bat... :)

700 should be enough, get everyone upto and including Jones into some batting form.

27th May 2005, 18:28
Go Belly!

waheed
27th May 2005, 18:31
Rafique picks up Trescothick for 194, no double ton for Tres...

2 quick wickets for Bangladesh with some good bowling from rafique and mortaza the experienced bowlers.

27th May 2005, 19:34
Belly get's a 50.

dan hudson
27th May 2005, 20:05
In Bell and Pietersen England have two of the very best young batsmen in the world.

This game is just a farce.

27th May 2005, 20:08
Belly's a former teammate - would be good for him to get a 100 regardless of the opposition.

Rob H
27th May 2005, 23:08
90/5 at the end of the day. I don't expect the match to go into the afternoon session on saturday but funnier things have happened!

waheed

England on the Rampage...

Hoggard strikes in 1st over
Harmison very unlucky to miss out on a hatrick

But picks up 2 in 2 with good straight bowling.
LBW not give by hari hari...

100-8

28th May 2005, 15:16
England have condemned them to near kicking out of Test status

I mean bangladesh have played test since 6 years and against a strong side they have yet to show ANY kind of resistence

Bangalis 98/8 345 runs behind and england are yet to bat again in second innings, pathetic

The questions been asked so many times, and i ask one more time!!

What's the point of Bangladesh playing test cricket
a club side could give more resistance than this.

And another thing i'm mad about is how cricinfo made this out to be such a blockbuster series, with all these press conferences with bashar and whatmore and all this garbage statements, and a week before that these garbage articles with bangladesh players, and pics on their homepage.
Cricinfo are english slaves.

Also another thing im mad about is how happy im seeing the english players about dismissing bengali batsmen, do they think that they are proving something to Australia by doing all this. playing bangladesh was the worst thing that could happen to them before playing the best team.
