Default Bangladesh hands Nepal a thrashing!

Bangladesh hand Nepal a thrashing

Bangladesh v Nepal, WT20, First Round, Group A, Chittagong

Bangladesh win emphatically in heavy dew

The Report by Alan Gardner in Chittagong
March 18, 2014

Bangladesh 132 for 2 (Anamul 42) beat Nepal 126 for 5 (Khadka 41, Al-Amin 2-17) by eight wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

Pressure? Not a bit of it. Bangladesh are strutting their way through Group A with an insouciant swagger, as good as sealing a place in the tournament proper with a second emphatic display. Dismissing the challenge of Associate sides can be a damned-if-you-don't, damned-if-you-do-it-well sort of scenario but, given the team's recent form, it had been by no means guaranteed that Bangladesh would make it through the first round without any scares.

They are not through yet but with a regal-looking net run rate of 2.686 and the weakest team in the group left to play, Dhaka can begin to prepare for bumper fixtures against India and Pakistan, not to mention, West Indies, the defending champions, and Australia. Bigger exploits may still be to come.
Faced with a modest target after Nepal had gamely scrapped through their innings, losing only five wickets but always struggling to score much above six an over, Bangladesh repeated the dose they had administered to Afghanistan. Paras Khadka, Nepal's resourceful captain, scored 41 for the second match running and continued to open the bowling with his stately offspinners but this time his side were overwhelmed.
They were not totally outclassed in this match, their first encounter with a Full Member. They were, however, outgunned, in much the same way their supporters, among the most fervent around, on this occasion had to accept being outnumbered.

On the flip side, we have a typical buzzkill by Isam

Tamim's ungainly slog, Pun's sharp pickup and throw

I look forward to celebrating the "thrashing" of cricketing giants such as Nigeria and Iceland here at BC in the near future.

Thrashing it was.

But I am more concerned with the overall performance. In batting Tamim is an issue- he is getting starts, but failing to sustain. Other than that batting looks okay at the moment.

In bowling if dew comes into play, which may not in Dhaka, we will have to face tough time. We have not enough reserve of pacers. I would love to have Najmul in the side, but he is not here. Zia woul dbe handy too, but our selectors are too wise these days. Can't rely on Shafiul these days.

Lot of thinking ahead of us!
