    Decent end for India , 3 wickets in the session. Ashwin getting some turn and bounce. Slogging from Shakib will always keep us in play.

    Ashwin is overdue a 5fer in an innings.

    Can't really say our bats gave away their wickets.

    Shakib should put a price tag on his wicket. Unlikely that we will be able to draw this. Riad is a pushover, Shakib and Mushy are top batsman. Sabbir and Miraz are still new. Our tail isn't that good either.

    Sorry to say but u totally lost ur plot in this segment of ur post. How's teams like Ireland or Afghanistan doing better than Bangladesh. Do u have any data or statistics regarding this or do u expect me to agree with u gust because u said so. Lol.


    How's Bangladesh have had enough exposure in test cricket. India have had first class cricket which is over 90 years old whereas first class cricket was first introduced in Bangladesh not more than 15 years ago. U can't just compare the infrastructure of this two country.

    Even after having so much exposure, so many teams in domestic first class cricket and so much money India still get pounded every time they step outside Asia.

    LOL. Wrong again. How long have Bangla been playing test cricket hmm? In case u didn't know it's just over 15 years.


    They have done really well and achieved quite a few things both in tests and Odis within this very short span of time. At least they've achieved a lot more than India did in their first couple of decades in cricket.


    Lastly, an interesting point. In Last 10 years Bangla played only 20 away tests. Can u believe it, Just 20. India playes the same number of away tests in one year. U can't expect a team do well especially in away matches when they hardly get any chance to play in this format.

    India until the 80's had little interest in cricket outside places like mumbai etc. It was hockey that was the biggest sport in india until atleast late 70's, so having a domestic structure meant nothing especially when that domestic structure did not pay much and players had to do day jobs alongside to make a living. It was only in 80's that cricket gained dominance in india and post that period results are for everyone to see

    For starters no team plays 20 odd test matches in a year let alone away matches, but i get your point. Another fact bangladesh played their first odi in 1986 and first associate match in 1979, since you like telling us that india apparently played cricket since 1932, i can't fathom why you don't use same standards for bangladesh. Also bangladesh started playing test since 2000 which makes still makes it 17 years not 15.

    I am putting out a few facts which i have copied from @Tekcirc hope he doesn't mind,

    In tests Bangladesh managed 74 losses in a record 98 test matches, while it took India a whopping number of close to 198 Tests to do the same.

    In ODIs, Bangladesh managed 103 losses in 115 games (2 NR, 10 wins), While India took a whopping 194 games to achieve that number.

    These above nos. show that india did way better than bangladesh in earlier period of their game, also here's the icing on the cake, we won the world cup in our 3rd attempt beating a GOAT side twice to do it, your best achievement in 5 attempts is beating india and england to finish in top 8 twice.

    Leaking 800+ runs by taking just 10 wickets @4+ RPO, giving away a lead of 300 is a terrific performance by what parameter. Just because the match is going to see the daylight of 5th day??

    Still, I'd back India to take 7 wickets on the final day but it's not impossible for BD; would be a big achievement for them considering that a top side like England only managed to draw level with India despite playing tests a lot more frequently then BD and having a better training camp in general for the tour of India given their superior infrastructure and talent pool in England.

    Exactly! your ATG team couldn't finish of these alleged minnows within 3 days, says a lot about India then BD who don't really play Test Cricket ( BD have played 5 Tests in 2 years compared to India's 5 in a series in less than 2 months)

    As I said they performed above expectations. But to call their performance terrific is very poor choice of word.
    They performed on the lines of minnow team having one good session.

    Again facts: 800+ runs, 10 wickets @4RPO
    Lead given: 299...

    You are too critcal bhai... if Shakib instead of slogging stays till lunch and strings a partnership with Mushfiqur then you can muster a draw. I don't trust Riad and Sabbir to defend a lot it will be a real test of character.

    We should kick out Riyadh and shabbir from our test team. Our team would be very good if we have this team
    1. Tamim
    2. Imrul/ nazmul (replacement if required)
    3. Mominul
    4. Mosaddek
    5. Shakib
    6. Mushfiq
    7. Nurul (extra keeper better than mushfiq,better batsman than shabbir in test)
    8. Miraz
    9. Taizul/Shuvashish
    10. Taskin
    11. Rabbi

    Again they made it to the fifth day, playing their first test in India since ..... ? and their fifth game in 2 years while you play that amount in a matter of months! yet you were unable to destroy this alleged minnow within days! these are facts to, well India are the no.1 test team in the world or do you not agree with that? call it what you like but they deserve respect for the effort so no need to pick and choose information and look at BD's performance without any context.

    The question is 'Did Bangladesh (who never played in ind) do worse than eng/nz who plays every second year in ind and plays tons of tests in every year whereas bd plays only few test in 10 or more years and that too at home??? How can you say that team worse whom you don't let play????

    I totally agree, people need to cut BD some slack I think they've done as well as they could have. I'd like to see a longer series in the future, we need to support BD they've come far and made some big strides and still they don't play no where near as much as they should; England barely survived when they toured their country as well.

    You are expecting too much from some fans who have drilled the word 'minnow' for Bangladesh in their brains. And they are not going to accept that Bangladesh has improved a lot in the past couple of years. Just like a typical desi who can't see the progress of his neighbour and will always downplay their achievements.

    Mushfiqur, Shakib are two experienced players. Infact both made Test debut 6 years before Kohli. So they have better situational awareness. Also they are used to playing spin day in day out. So there won't be technical issues. Also this is not a raging turner by any stretch . It does not have uneven bounce either. Pitch is so slow that you could play everythig off the backfoot. Yes. They can draw the test if they don't have brain freeze. But Kohli will constantly apply pressure.

    He's going to be a great captain for his country

    India will win easily. Shakib will throw away his wicket in the first 5 overs. Bangladesh will lose because they don't have mentality to save a test match. However BDesh have done well to stretch the match to 5 days, even Australia will find that difficult

    On these type of pitches Australia may have a chance. The only problem is they may not have the spinners to get 10 wickets.

    As of this morning, the Indians have their tails up .... yes !!! It is a Fifth day wicket and the cracks are plenty. Both Ashwin and Jadeja can't wait to have go at the BD batsmen. Any thoughts of scoring the required runs will play into the Indian's hand. Most sensible thing for BD to do is to bat out the whole day ..... easy to say than to do it. As soon as the batting plan becomes obvious, the Indians will have 6 guys around the bat or 6 of them on the boundary line. Should be a fun of Cricket ..... sure hope so.

    Excellent post brother bear.


    Why do u think India has struggled so much in this test? They r supposed to play like a number 1 test team right?


    A team like India who generally plays 4/5 tests per series playing against a 9th ranked team like Bangla who barely plays 4 tests in a year but still failed to wrap up the match within 4 days. Lol

    Just imagine what could've happened if Bangla had played even half of the number of tests India plays each year.

    They'd still lose 80% of those games like they've done so far. There is a reason Test matches are called Test matches, and not Practice matches. You're supposed to improve your skill and get better playing elsewhere (e.g., domestic cricket), and not expect to be given Test matches just because you happen to have Test status. No one is entitled to get x number of matches each year.

    Looking some of the comments i wonder whether India is in a loosing position. In a road of a pitch they scored heavily, dismissed Bangladesh for as low as one can on this pitch, comfortably declared after scoring quickly to get a result and now put Bangladesh in a spot of bother. And the pitch is still road. These kinds of pitches Bangladesh play in their domestic competition every time. So low number of test matches argument sounds like a readymade Anticipatory bail one.

    LOL really. Is this why it called test cricket? A team who playes 4/5 tests after every two moths will play against a team who plays 1/2 tests after every 24 moths and say look how good we r?

    Is this what u call real test ? Yup it's definitely a TEST BUT it's a test of ICC's stupidity who wants new test playing nations to do well in test without allowing them to play enough test matches against top teams

    If playing in domestic was as same as playing playing in international matches players like wasim Jafar, Amol Muzumdar or mithun manhas would've become few of the best test batsmen of all time. Lol :SRT

    You are suggesting that our progress has been the slowest.

    In the past their were a lot of ordinary sides, when Bangladesh debuted in the test arena it was arguably the best era for cricket. Barring Zimbabwe, all teams were ridiculously good in the test format more or less.

    You also have to factor in that when Bangladesh wanted to focus on Tests, ICC introduced T20Is and that made it more difficult for us to improve in tests. It was not that we had to improve one thing at a time. We had to improve 3 things at a time!

    We had to improve in T20s because there were T20 leagues and T20 world cup every 2 years!
    We had to do well in ODIs because that is the most popular format and also is the format of the true world cup, not to mention champions trophy
    We had to improve in Tests, because its the format which is most valued by pundits and cricket boards

    When other teams started, they had 1-2 formats to focus on, when its 3 formats to improve on simultaneously it becomes much more difficult. Bangladesh has improved over the years more faster than one feels. Yes it was not the swiftest but it was not painstakingly slow. Infact we just had our first FC league around 2001-2

    BDesh will lose by 250 runs, at the very least 200. They don't have quality batsmen who can grind on to bat a full day in 4th innings.

    I don't get why we keep playing ishant, he isn't a swing bowler, he bowls too wide to really use any reverse unless batsman has a brain freeze and he does not even have much pace. Ishant sharma is the definition of rubbish, but yeah lets give him the ball on the 5th day before giving it ashwin when we are trying to win the match

    He is there because our no.1 bowler; Shami is rested. He is a filler for other fast men in our 5 bowler quota scheme of things ;)

    Ishant can be useful on surfaces which have bounce.

    No he isn't, if indian fast bowlers are ranked it will be shami, bhuvi, umesh and then ishant, even with bounce i don't think he has pace to actually trouble batsmen consistently, his england spell won us the game but was it really great, compare it to that pakistani bowler's ( i can't recall his name) spell against australia, now that is called troubling batsmen with pace and bounce, with ishant it was more like he kept pitching it short, they kept hitting it and finding fielders on the boundary.

    Ashwin did not bowl offies. He bowled straighter ones. Explains why BD's progress is slow. This guy made debut 6 years before Kohli. If you can't take singles regularly of a spinner then this is what happens.

    Cricinfo commentary for next ball after mushfiqur's wicket

    Ashwin to Mahmudullah, no run, who cares if your team is playing to draw the game, and it's the best bowler in the world bowling in his home conditions. Mahmudullah runs down the track, is deceived by the dip, gets an inside edge as he slog and it bounces just short of midwicket

    Do bangladeshi batsmen train themselves to be dumb or something.

    In test cricket there is no bonus points for dominating a world's best spinner. You play the ball not the bowler. Ashwin earned those wickets purely because of his ranking lol. To his credit he varied the pace and line.

    He can't play 100 ball 30 rather can 30 ball 70 and on this pitch(5th day) he can 40 ball 20 at best
