Bangladesh Co-hosting World Cup Cricket 2011 February 18, 2011

Bangladesh is co-hosting the world cup 2011 along with India and Srilanka. It’s a great honour for Bangladesh which is comparatively new in the world cricket.

The inaugural festival was held in Dhaka. It’s a great challenge for Bangladesh. Bangladesh overcame the challenge with a great spectacular show where Bangladesh and other two hosting countries nicely projected their art and culture.

Prime Minister Sk. Hasina proudly opened the world cup 2011. The captains toured the stadium on traditional rickshaws of Bangladesh.

For the world cup, the capital Dhaka and port city Chittagong took a colorful look. The mascots, statues of players and national symbols were stationed at different places Of the two city.

The inaugural bonanza was attended by thousands of enthusiasts. Many couldn’t enter into the stadium due to lack of seats. Prime Minister, Ministers and dignitaries of different countries glorified the occasions by their presence. But there was visible absence of opposition leaders signifying the distance of political rivals in an occasion of national unity.

Bangladesh will also host few games, at Dhaka and Chittagong.

We hope that the play will continue smoothly and in good spirit. We hope that Bangladesh will do her best and will hit a good scores to win or challenge the opponents.

Bangladesh has also extra responsibility to take care of the players, guests and tourists. The safety of them should be a concern for the state.

Th traffic jam may prove bitter for the tourists and the citizens aw well if the authority couldn’t handle it properly.
All the good wishes for the world cup 2011.

Twenty20:Bangladesh lacks maturity September 20, 2007

Bangladesh won the toss and sent Sril Lanka to bat as was expected by Ashraful, the Bangladesh Captain. Bangladeshi boys bawled  wonderfully including the bowler Mahmudullah and they restricted  Sri Lanka within 147. A score which is not enough to feel confident to win.

So Bangladesh had a chance to beat Sri Lanka. But Bangladeshi Batting collapsed as usual.

Opener Najimuddin scored 0 was gone first. He could not come out his nervousness in the big matches though he scored brilliantly in the preparatory matches. Tamim’s 3, came from 14 balls and caught out with a desperate shot as he sometimes make. Aftab who started brilliantly and scored 18 and who is rarely defensively and always in a mood to make big shots bold out while trying to drive a straight shot to the boundary. Then Ashraful was out with 4 with a silly shot as he sometimes do when the burden on his shoulder is high. Then newcomer Nadif  ran out for his tile from an uncalculated attempt. Sakiib also embraced the same fate  though he scored 18  playing with patience. Mashrafi is a hit and run guy who scored 12. Bangladesh scored 82  runs with 10 wickets in only 15.5 over.

How will you explain this loss? Their shot selection is wrong/their running between wicket is poor/ their defensive technique is weak/ they are inconsistent/ they are too young/they break down under pressure/temperamentally they are wrong/ their approach to the game is at fault.

Whatever way you explain, Bangladesh boys lacks maturity. It is not because of age only. Consistency, patience, judgment, control of emotion etc are sign of maturity which our boys are lacking.  

One day this immaturity will go, but the ordinary citizen is feeling  a little bit frustrated as it is taking a little longer time than expected.

Bangladesh wins over West Indies in twenty20 cricket September 13, 2007

Bangladesh thundered the cricket world again by beating West Indies in cricket short version twenty20 today (13th September 2007).

The first ever world cup of twenty20 version started in South Africa 2 days back.

On the first day of twenty20, West Indies though battled brilliantly with century from Chris Gyle but defeated by the defiant South Africa on the their home ground.

Toady it was the first match for Bangladesh and second match for West Indies.

Winning the second match was a must for West Indies.After winning the toss, West Indies preferred to bat and scored 164 by some quick sixes in the last minutes. Bangladesh lost 2 early wickets but recovered by the brilliant partnership of Ashraful and Aftab, both made more than 50. Ashraful scored 61 from 27 balls and Aftab batted through the innings to the end to reach victory and made 62.

Twenty20 is the new version of cricket to suit the sentiment and schedule of people of modern times. It was thought to be power play where batsmen will smash the ball like anything  and bowlers will suffer in agony.

I was rather skeptical about the success of Bangladesh in this short form of cricket considering the height and strength of our boys. But they proved us wrong. They played wonderfully and proved that it is not all power of muscles that counts in cricket. Cricket in its short form also needs art and technique.

The defeat of Australia in the hands of Zimbabo  and win of Bangladesh against West Indies proved it so.

We feel proud for the success of our boys and congratulate them.

 

Ashraful acknowledged the impact of commando training in their preparatory phase for the tournament.

 

We also remember David Whitemore on this occasion for his contribution in building the base of our boys for a prospective future in cricket.

Some parting comments of Whatmore on Bangladesh cricket & Bangladesh June 1, 2007

2007-05-25__sport031.jpgDav Whatmore stayed in Bangladesh for about 4 years. As the coach of Bangladesh Cricket Team for a long period he had the opportunity to observe keenly not only the performance of our boys but also the emotions of our nation.

Interestingly, at the time of his departure, some of his comments reflected those observation.

‘Bangladesh can now beat any team of the world in one day cricket.’

‘Bangladesh is making gradual progress in test cricket .’

‘Bangladesh needs more talented and aggressive players in the  team for future. Its needs more regular  domestic  first class cricket set up in the country.’

‘The strength of cricket in the subcontinent lies in the support of the people, which is lacking in many countries.

‘ Bangladesh is a country full of emotions which extends  from common people to the high-ups in the Administration. They carry away with wins and feel depressed when defeated. Cricket as well as in any other game you need to control yourself. Bangladesh will do good in cricket if it can control its emotion more sportingly.

‘What impressed him most in Bangladesh?’ He said ‘the ability of the people to be happy among hundreds of problems’. What troubled him most? He said ‘traffic jam and power cut’

Bangladesh cricket leaps into adolescence May 22, 2007

Who does not love cricket in Bangladesh? The Chief Adviser of the CG was also enjoying cricket between Bangladesh and India the other day.

Indian cricket team is in Bangladesh for 3 one day and 2 five day tests in Dhaka and Chittagong. India won the 1 day series by 2-0. The last one day in Chittagong was washed away by rain. The first test was also inturruptrd by rains and ultimately ended in draw.

But what is soothing to observe is that Bangladesh is gradually becoming mature it its performance. It leaps into adolesence from childhood. It is overcoming the days of  restlessness and immuturity. But even in this stage of adolescence, it may surprise many a team.

Our boys are needed to be more consistent, more confident and more technical. 

We, the ordinary citizens feel that we shall not have to wait long to see these Bangladeshi boys  make us more  proud by their performance  in the field of the world cricket .
