    I am a huge critic of MSD. But when it comes to India playing international matches, I will support MSD. I don't hope for MSD to fail as that will hurt India's chances.

    The important thing is, if MS and KL are in form, the openers can also play with a lot more freedom. Such is the importance of KL and MSD's form to Team India.

    Abu Jayed and Mehedy Hasan are useless, should be kicked out. We don’t have the bowlers for English conditions, every team will score 400+ against us.

    As expected Abu Jayed Rahi has only one talent - swing the new ball both ways. He has no control and no tricks up his sleeve. He will get slaughtered

    Yes it’s a practice match. But it sickens me when they keep on bowling spinners from both ends despite them being smashed
    Relax - they used 9 bowlers. Only dilemma in bowling is weather to pick Rubel or Mustafiz or both (leaving one of Miraz/Saif out) - so they get 8 overs each and Mustafiz got the new ball. MSD is one of the best ever spin demolisher - if you are to try part-timers, it should be against him in warm-up games.

    Best Asian team playing against the 2nd best team from Asia, I expected some fireworks. Heartwarming to see Dhoni playing like vintage Dhoni even if it's just a practice match.

    Pathetic captaincy from 25+ overs took them to this total. Spinners were useless, but kept bowling them. Pacers did well to keep it tight and economically early on. Looked like it would be under 300 once but gone ver 350!

    I started watching from the 35th over, Mortaza wasn’t on the field. I think Shakib was captaining, I actually wanted a big score as we will need to chase down 350+ in the real matches. Be positive bro, India has scored enough for a Soumya Double Ton

    They went into hiding. A tight slap to all those jokers who said he's there in the top only to do stylish and fancy stumpings. I understand BD bowlers were not up to the mark, but the so-called World class openers couldn't do jack against such bowlers too.

    Honestly seemed like there was no intent on winning the game. There was no real smart moves, just giving everyone a go. We bowled 9 bowlers today. I would not worry too much.

    Also, it is important to see how we approach a chase like this. We need to learn how to chase anything close to 350 so in the grander scheme of things it would help us. I would like to see a positive chase. Would not want to lose quick wickets though.

    Can ROHITS and DHAWANS hold the bat at least until the Powerplay completes? If they get out cheaply and early like tailenders, you can't expect fireworks from the middle order from the word go.

    The ball was moving in initial overs and as we all know our so called great openers are duds against even the slightest of swing or seam.

    Good that every batsman got opportunity to bat in both the matches.
    Rahul looks set for number four.
    Rohit is out of form.
    Kohli is good but not in his best.
    Dhawan is Dhawan.
    Dhoni needs a good platform to play freely.
    Hardik is very good in the last overs.
    Shankar is garbage.
    Kartik will most probably not play.

    Enjoy the game - 9 batsmen will bat today and Liton, Soumya will open. I hope they send Sabbir at 3 & Mosaddek at 4.

    I do not like Mehidy Hasan the ODI player. Idk why, but just don’t get a good vibe about him nor is he needed atm. Mosadekk is a miles better batsmen and can give some cheap overs. So what’s the need of Miraz? Mahmudullah more than handy with the ball, on a good game bowls his full well.

    My XI for BD going into the game against England would be:

    Tamim
    Soumya
    Shakib
    Mushfiqur
    Litton
    Mahmudullah
    Mossadekk
    Sabbir
    Mashrafe
    Rubel
    Mustafizur


    With above you got 40 overs from the main 4 bowlers, Mossadekk and Mahmudullah combined can give 4-6 if needed, if one or two of other main bowlers going for big runs, Soumya also can bowl few tidy overs.

    Unless you want another pace bowling option, then take Sabbir out And add Saif in.

    Its funny people here are calling out openers. The same openers who hit hundreds for fun and where the main reasons to win ous overseas ODIs when middle order was failing them. One or two failures and people are all over them.

    BD gave Ind false hopes with MS D hitting the ton. LOL. If he scores a ton at the WC with under 70 balls faced, I’ll ask to get perm banned from here. It counts for nothing. Come the real stage Dhoni will go back to his slow ways.

    What hopes? Dhoni is going to be in the XI no matter what. Whatever he scores is a bonus. His role is to stop collapse and organize small chases. Don't expect much from him.

    Bangladesh’s bowling is a real concern, if Dhoni scores a 70 ball century, Imagine what Butler will do 70 ball 200

    He is the best timer in the team, at per with Tamim & his current partner, but his placement is horrible. That's why he is like a Mark Waugh in lower level cricket, but averages 20ish in ODI.

    His brain fade moment came, just bounced short of Chahal and got the Indian commie excited

    The body achieves what the mind believes it can achieve.

    Even if BD get to 320 ..330 in this chase....May not win this one.... but psychological victory can be achieved ...as many other teams taking a win against BD guaranteed will get jittery and have self doubts in that case.

    But we don't have the habit of scoring big which also has to do with -
    1) home conditions
    2) good bowling
    3) weaker oppositions

    Our batting would be among the best batting lineups for conditions like UAE but chasing over 320 in any condition is difficult.

    This is a good bowling attack. If BD can get to 300 they woudl have done a good job. If they win it is even better.

    Indians do their home work brilliantly - Shakib has a tendency to york himself at the start of innings, which Malinga exploited in Asia Cup, Bumrah executed that perfectly again.

    Lack of big hitters. Yes BD is not a 350 plus team even in this era. Even India is not a 350 plus team these days. They have to make up for it in their bowling.

    Experiment with Shakib at 3 won't work. We can't bat with 1-2-3 left-hander, and today Kohli kept Bumrah for one more over just for that left-hander on strike. Ideally Shakib should bat at 5 and Tamim at 3 with Soumya, Liton opening.

    Probably he'll - Liton isn't expected to start. But, no way they should send 1-2-3 almost identical lefti.

    To be frank...Shakib got out to gem of delivery....nine out of 10 times ...no batter would have survived that delivery.

    Tamim is quite settled opening the innings, I wouldn’t experiment Tamim at 3 that too during the World Cup. We could have tried a year ago and experimented.

    I’ll open with Tamim and Liton, Soumya at 3, Mushy 4 and Shakib at 5

    The more I follow BD the more I notice that Bangladesh follows the Indian model in recent times except Bangladesh more reliant on middle order.

    The thing with both teams is focusing too much on batsmen who can bat long. Hardly any intent to bat faster than you are supposed to. No buttler Russell type players.

    Tbh like I said the conditions and bowling attack of Bangladesh means team don't score big against us. Same applies for India. If india conceded more runs you'd see batsmen having to score big. Judging by NZ WI match it seems like explosive batting is the need of the hour

    My point wasn't about him being out on fast ball - that ball deserves a wicket. But the order with 3 lefti, then 5 right handers, is't balanced.

    BD has better depth though . So batsman upfront can take their chances.

    I've never been a fan of shakib at 3

    He isn't someone who is top against swing and the yorkers. Also this creates an issue of 3 leftie in top 3 and none afterwards. He will score runs at 5. Rotates the strike well. He hasn't done poorly at 3. Just that against good teams I would rather have him at 5 and maybe Litton at 3
