Re: ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020, South Africa : Other Matches [ Except Zimbabwe ]

If BD beats Scotland today, we're virtually through to the QFs where we will likely face Afghanistan or South Africa. So unless we choke yet again, we should be a lock for the semifinals. Bangladesh can beat any team in this tournament, except India (who we did manage to beat in England last summer,...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

It is genuinely appalling that some of you are complaining about this. I for one am loving that we are at least still batting. You crack it when we get out playing recklessly and then get annoyed when we bat slowly and cautiously. Rediculous. Be glad that we aren't out of the game and watch it. It'...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Well we have to assume that runs are constant and the only variable is how quickly or slowly they are being scored. And this is where all those fine theories and calculations depart from the real world :lol: Damn it, Regis out, over to the Don! But we aren't talking about the real world, FF. We are...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

The other option knowing our guys if they batted aggressively is that we would have been bowled out for 270 after 80 overs. How exactly would that have helped us? Sri Lanka would have been able to bat slowly and still kill us. Now if they want to win the game they have to attack which will create m...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Remember the days in BD's early Test history when they always played aggressivly and were often all out after 50 overs? I wish we could bat 50 overs now! :D Jokes aside, I'm not saying to bat mindlessly attempting to go at 6 an over. But strike rotation doesn't occur out of thin air. I think Jaybro...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

The problem is not the slow run rate by the guys who actually scored runs. Its the guys who didn't score much before they got out. Had you asked our captain would he have taken coming out at number 5 on day 2 with over 200 runs on the board and our best batsman still out there partnering him, he wo...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Howzat? Do you mean that it's more difficult for Dickwella if he has more time to knock off the runs? 260-5 at lunch, not a comfortable position but much better than getting bowled out by Tea on day one. Assuming some overs get lost due to rain, ZIM batting overly slowly so far can always backfire....

Another wicket here and it means all that stalling on day one has only slowed the game down by a couple of overs
This comment actually makes no sense at all.
I think he meant to say it only slowed the game down and left room for SL to bat ZIM out if they go big at 3-3.5 an over.

247-5

That overly slow run rate is going to start becoming a problem now unless 6 sessions get rained off. You have to remember that the likes of Dickwella could power a chase of 150 off the final session of the match if it came down to it.

the youtube stream is back!

Taylor out for 21. 208 for 3 now...if ZIM lose another 2 before lunch, the run rate will become a factor.
