    Liton should have replaced Kayes, which would have put Mushi at 4.

    Australia only win tosses in india. I think they have won around 7-8 tosses in india in last 10 matches.
    whereas in UAE also pakistan won all the three tosses against australia.

    Mushy doesn't want to give up the gloves. We know that for sure. Otherwise no reason to leave out Litton. Mushy is a key batsman and also a captain. Let him focus on those parts

    Not Wade - his FC average is 38, excluding Test, it's over 40 in Shield.

    Now, you have a point with the qualifier - but, Miraj'll be even more clueless if he is to face Cummins, Josh & Strac as WACA with good length ball hissing past his nose.

    With the ugly hoicks I doubt any other regular batter would've made the difference, also what was that brainfade from the captain last test, not grounding his bat? It's as if half the side doesn;t know what a test is, including Shakib, Shabbir et al in the second innings!

    I think, it's not by desire - last 3 months, Chittagong has broken every past record of rain fall. It's normally a harder surface, but rain didn't help. O'Kffee might not be that effective here because he is bowling first.

    About Shakib's brainfade. His mindset was that quick runs would help because it's difficult to stay for too long in the wicket. This is because of variable bounce. It's easy to say in hindsight but Shakib has been largely successful with this approach. A brainfade would be his slog in the first test against England.

    Mushy - you need to be a superhuman to ground the bat in that situation given that you have backed up. 80 percent of the batsman does that. Only problem was that Sabbir gave that an almighty smack. That was unlucky

    The wicket in Dhaka was poor in my opinion. Uneven bounce. If you thought our batting was bad Australia batted even worse. Australia too used the slog quite a bit and frankly on this wicket that's a good ploy

    It won;t hurt you to admit that Shakib has more brainfades, than you;d like to admit, the first test against NZ fourth morning being another.

    Common, even Bangla commentators said he wasn;t even trying to get back, you think that's the first time a spinner flicked the ball back onto the stumps?

    With Shabbir it was the fact that he didn;t review the decision, nothing to do with the shot, he was clearly not out.

    Well they don;t play on such tracks so it's quite expected for them to fail, also scoreboard pressure.

    Not denying Shakib has a history of brainfades but that's how he plays. That's how he always played. If he batted sensibly it may be counterproductive at times but useful elsewhere.

    Who are the Bangla comms? Shamim Chowdhury? The guy never played cricket. It was practically impossible to ground his bat. Human reaction time is 0.1s but there was also a matter of PIEV, since it wasn't an unexpected event, which means he needed slightly more time to process. And the ball travelled really quick. No batsman could have been able to react that quick. And Lyon didn't attempt to flick it back, it was just a reflex. Only valid argument is whether mushy Should not have left the crease at first but it's something most batsmen does to steal a single. I would rather listen to the opinion of Indian experts because they have greater knowledge about our players than Shamim Chowdhury. Shamim Chowdhury was also stating that Tamim Should protect the night watchman at the end of day's play.

    As for Sabbir. I think he was pretty clueless. We can only understand his thought process by asking him personally.

    The pitch looks good for batting so far. Perhaps not a minefield like those against England, nor does it have the uneven bounce and sudden sharp turn in the first test

    Mitchell Swepson toured India and didnt play a match and same thing happening with him here in Bangladesh.

    They called suspended (by his state team) O Keefe all the way from Australia rather than playing Swepson who was selected over him.

    I dont know whats up with Aussies team managent. Swepson as a leg spinner would have added more variety to the attack, Agar and O keefe both are left arm orthodox spinners.

    300+ is a minimum. If Sarkar can look at ease then no reason why our entire side muster up 300+ given that we have 9 frontline batsman and our no. 9 averaged 60+ in the U-19 world cup.

    We will not have a result if more than 90 overs are lost to rain.

    Looks like a more traditional subcontinental pitch. Not overly flat nor a minefield.

    When it comes to winning a game of cricket, the Aussies are no better or worse than any number of teams/players they've condemned in the past for their atrocious behavior. The fact that they let SoK play, after he insulted an Aussie female cricketer, just goes to show where their priorities lie. Of course the one test wonder isn;t much of an upgrade over Josh, as they'll find out soon enough.

    This pitch is playing well so far with occasional low bounce.Bangladeshi batsmen are playing too circumspectly to make it look like a 280 pitch.

    One adjustment Aussies did here is that now they are attacking wicket, which is the right approach in Asia. Lyon was turning lot at Mirpur but most of his balls were wasted, until he started to attack the wicket in 2nd innings.

    Captain and selectors are puppets

    Haturi is a complete dictator. All our seniors wanted Mominul but they picked Imrul and Soumya. Our selectors and captain has no say in selection or even batting order.

    5 lefties in the top 5.

    I can't think of why Litton isn't played ahead of Imrul or Soumya. Atleast we would have a RHB to play Lyon.

    Track is extremely slow, surviving isn't that tough, but scoring quick isn't possible here. At Mirpur, that wicket actually suited Warner's batting & whoever went after the ball scored some run. This is a grafter's wicket.

    The saving grace for us is that we have 9 batsman and also batting first, otherwise we would have been in serious trouble

    If only Nasir and Sabbir can score 50s. But seems unlikely. Those two don't know how to score runs these days

    Australia went in with just 1 pacer, what kind of pitch is this? They never played just 1 pacer even on turners in India.

    Tbf Cartwright is a medium pacer, who could be used if necessary. It seems like they have more faith in their spinners rather than pacers, Bird must be gutted, also Swepson!

    Nasir is probably the most talented batsman in bangla team after tamim. He hasnt been treated well by BCB who should learn to stick with him. I hope nasir to score a few in this match so that he is given an extended chance in the team.

    Exactly.

    There is a game going on inside BCB for quite sometime now led by our honourable board President and Chief selector cum coach Hatura.This game is all about liking and disliking a player.President don't like Nasir,Hatura don't like Mominul but Soumya and Sabbir are favorite.Soumya and Sabbir that's why gets extended run despite poor performance and Nasir gets chopped after 1 or 2 games.Nasir is a very capable bat with 3 gears in his batting. He is thousands time better than Soumya and Sabbir.But he is very harshly treated.Looser is ultimately Bangladesh.

    I also hope that he gets a good score and cements his place in the team.I hoped that he will bat higher in the order before Sabbir.

    I think, we are now in a decent position. Still 5 wickets left & better teams do add 150 from here on -let's see how much we can add. May be 230/7 at the end of Day isn't a bad score here.

    Other spinners are bowling too fast for the wicket. It's not turning much, and that pace is making it like slow medium pace. Agar was a bit lucky to get Shakib, but in general both lefti has bowled poor.

    Why is Sabbir batted so low like a tailender in tests? Promote him up. He's the Babar Azam of Bangladesh but less hyped.

    Technically not sound enough to survive at 3. However, to break this 5 lefti in 1-5, may be he should bat at 6, Mushi at 4 & Kayes at 7.

    His current position in this test is the best position for him. Every Bangladeshi want him play here in test.

    Need this wicket to get sun burnt. I feel, there is lots of moisture beneath. After tmro's rolling, track should get a little faster.

    Started following BD cricket when 3 teenagers (Shakib, Mushfiq, and Tamim) led them to their famous wc victory. They are improving since then but soon they have to find a batsman who can score daddy hundreds like Smith, Pujara, Younis etc. Also a quickie who can run through sides. Mustafizur is fine in odis but they need someone in tests. If they find these players they will win outside home too.


    Sarfi as captain'll lead us to glory.Babar'll be our best odi bat & Haris'll be world class in tests

    End of a good day, could have been great had Sabbir been there, but still we have enough left to reach 350. The way Nasir played, if he can survive morning spell from Cummins, may be 400 isn't impossible. Great recovery from 117/5.

    Great recovery, 300 seems likely now which would be a decent 1st innings total on this wicket; anything more then that is a bonus


    Ah, so this is what it feels like
