Default will we TigerWash?

Will we be able to pull off a 3-0 tigerwash of Zimbabwe and pass them in the rankings? It will be historic, because we have always been the last ranked side in the test rankings. But a 3-0 sweep should see us pass them according to my calculations.

BCB will pour Tk 10 crore in the series. They will be facing a huge loss (money wise) in this series. We badly need to win those matches to climb up the ranking, so to avoid challenge from the IC Cup winner in 2018.

It's sad to hear though our once profitable cricket board is now facing loss in every other home series. Someone should go to jail for giving away broadcast rights to Gazi TV so cheaply.

We haven't hosted any of the big dogs in several years. Yes that gazi deal looks bad but they were taking all the production costs. Also under new FTP we may have more lucrative tours hopefully.

Voter turnout is worse than the Bangladesh general elections.

I expect nothing less than a tiger-wash, even after this horrid year

What are your goals if you are BD team?
1) Win series 3-0?
2) Just win series, 1-0 or 2-1?
3) Get some test points with draw first?
4) Focus on the 1st test only?
5) Focus on 1st inning batting and play 5 sessions?
6) Focus on first session only and bat out?
7) Unleash Shakib?

Mijan bhai, you don't think there will be a sweep? Is rain in the forecast? Shakib is back and you have such little faith? Zim are missing their second best batsman in Williams!

It is like Arkansas. So close to winning yet can't win a conference game. 16 game losing streak. I know SEC west is a monster. Yet it all comes down to W.

Same with BD. They must win the 1st one. With this batting collapse we are experiencing for the last one year that 3-0 is a bold prediction.

Hard to argue with that. Still the heart says 3-0!

TigerWash such an ugly jargon. Sounds like TigerBalm. It will always be BanglaWash...meaning, deshi Bansh.

Bansh koto prokar ebong ki ki?

1. Bansh mane BanglaWash
2. Bash mane BanglaWash
3. ....

If this place is anything like us, any time fans start getting confident/cocky the team responds with an absolute horror performance crushing all hope.

IMO, 2-1 to Bangladesh/1-1 is my prediction.

Zimbabwe will struggle but their batting should be good enough for them to avoid a whitewash.

Lol that's generous. Gullu's strike rate would ensure 0-0.
