I totally disagree. I think we have excellent tailenders. The performance of our tailenders in the first innings was an exception rather than the rule. Just look at the scorecards from last 20/30 matches. More often than not the top order collapses and its grit from the middle order and the tailenders that allow us to post decent scores. Players like rafiq, khaled mashud and masri have avgs that are similar or even better than those of their top order counterparts.

The pitch is destroying the ball. Whenever pacers are bowling on this hard grassless pitch it takes away the shine and seam very quickly. The ball is totally dead. The commentators are saying that the balls look like 150 overs old as oppose to 80. The batsmen are getting plenty of time to play the ball. Even after going backfoot they have time to think where the ball will go.
This is really frustrating. But we have to be patient. Inshaallah post lunch session will open up our luck. Looks like Gilchrist is quite well set. Forget about him. Get the other end cleaned up.

The lower-middle order almost always does well for us, but the tailenders don't. Shahadat, Mashrafee and Enamul all average in single figures in tests. I think they have the potential to do better, but kaj er shomoi keu kichu korte pare na.

New ball might do the trick, I am not quite sure. Australians are building a very very good partnership. Gillespie is really playing sensibly, he is not chancing his arms like our tails used to do. This is really a nailbiting fight back from aussies.

In any day this is great to watch aussies fighting hard against us. In fact first two days of cricket has expanded our expectation and thats why we are a bit unhappy. Anyway friends this test is still open and anything can happen. One thing is for sure 'whatever happens to this test, 'the message is clear from Bangladesh to world cricket'

All good things are hard.

Bowl line and length, bat for a long time and then win.

Although a win is a win, wouldnt it be better to have Australia struggle mightily, and *still* fail against the Tigers ?

This is what happens when u dont go for kill when it was the best time to do so. I already opend a thread criticizing Bahsar's mistake in last one vey crucial hour of last day.. and ppl had rather been criticizing me for not being satisfied with his captaincy yesterday. Comon guys.. look what is happening today.. Gill will keep on going and going and he has gone very strong on all our bowlers. If you cant strike at the right moment.. u will never get the honor of wining something.

Now.. looking at the score.. I am totally disappointed and my hope for an upset is quickly fading away.

Yes, this test PROVES to the world that we've improved quite a bit since we were given our test status. I was reading the Gordon Greenidge interview from 1997 or 1998 where he says Bangladesh won't be ready to play tests even by 2008. I am glad we got our test status, because if we hadn't, there is no way on earth we would be putting up a fight against Australia in the year 2006, such a long time ahead of (Greenidge's) schedule.

Let's not forget that the Australians are jetlagged and barely got any rest between the two tours. This is not to take away from Bangladesh's performance. Our performance far exceeded what any cricket specialist, commentator or atel would have thought, BUT 99 out of 100 times, Australia probably would not get into a situation like this against Bangladesh if they aren't jetlagged and tired.

This is worse than that time back at the 97 world cup when Gilly and S Waugh gave the Paki guys the scare of their lifetimes. Gilly DOES have a reputation for scaring Ppl, doesn't he? but lets not forget, it was BD and not Aussie who got the better out'a paki's in that event.

We really need to use this new ball after the the post-lunch session. If we can bowl half as well as we did in the first 20-30 overs of the game, then it's still quite possible that we could roll them for 250-260 runs. The main problem seems to be that both Mashrafe and Shahahahadat seem to think digging it in short will get the wickets - where in fact it won't. All that is required is a gentle prod off the back foot - a wasted delivery on this pitch. We have to use the inconsistent bounce to our advantage once again.

Relax man!! The match is still within our reach. If we just play a patience game and don't allow aussies to get easy run we are going to either win or draw the test. Look the scoring rate of the aussies. We need to do just one thing -- bat sensibly in the second innings. You cannot dream to win a match playing cheap shots in the second innings. I think BD second innings will be the most important deciding factor for this match apart from current partnership between Gilly and Dizzy
