Gollum posted a topic in ArchivesStory so far Every 4 years there is a fight in the jungle to crown the King, Kangaroo is the reigning monarch but others are staking their claim. Since this is bear land, we support dear old Bhalu...Bhalu is literally a deity for Indian masses. So the tournament started a month ago and Bear got into his elements quickly, finishing opponents one after the other and laying down the marker for others. Even defeating the mighty Kangaroo on his way, leaving a trail of destruction behind. Bear became happy with his run of results, time to celebrate. But lurking in the shadows was an old enemy, an enemy who could never be King no matter how hard he tried, a cunning enemy who invented this spectacle and in one way or another enslaved all other animals in contention for more than a century each. Suffice to say he is the most hated competitor....The Bulldog. Bulldog despite being pre-tournament top seed had an underwhelming run and was almost on the verge of elimination before the fight against the Bear. Using his sorcery he changed the flora and fauna of the jungle, influenced a Markhor umpire, manipulated the environment, used Sholay wallah coin for toss etc finally defeating the Bear. Though it must be admitted the Bear was mediocre in the contest and some of the units were well past expiry date. OK then, Bear lost, Bulldog won...Bear's greatest enemy Markhor too felt the pain. This immediately caused flutter and all animals took notice. Chief among them was Bear's next opponent: the Nagin. Nagin is a special beast, composed of many tiny snakes which unite to form an Anaconda, a predator which hunts prey by strangulation as opposed to biting. The Nagin has decided to meet the Bear in the venue of latter's most recent defeat <48 hours earlier at Edgbaston, Birmingham. Divided by boundaries, united by Tagore, Bhupen Hazarika, illegal immigration, fake currency and..... भारत vs বাংলাদেশ (English part for Lanni and offended Southies ) H2H: 29-5 India Post 2015 WC QF: 4-2 India WCs: 2-1 India PREVIEW When: July 2, 2019, at 10:30 AM Local Time Where: Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham What to expect: The pitch and boundary size, which was highlighted by Virat Kohli, could be a factor again. The pitch is going to be the same one that was used for the England game. And if that two-paced track was any indication, expect the cutters from fast bowlers to come into play once again. Weather: Fine, full game expected (metoffice) Team News India: With Vijay Shankar ruled out of the tournament, India are likely to continue with the same combination that played against England. Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah Bangladesh: Mahmudullah's fitness was a matter of concern before Bangladesh's break but he has had some practice ahead of the game, which should ease their nerves. Probable XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Liton Das, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza, Mustafizur Rahman CRICBUZZ PREVIEW Let's go Team India

A passionate Bangladesh turned out to be the party-poopers on Wednesday as they wrecked the prospects of an India-Pakistan summit clash with a gutsy performance despite losing key players to injury. On paper, India will remain overwhelming favourites to win the tournament for a record seventh time while Bangladesh will be hoping to be third-time lucky in a summit clash.

OpeningBatsman posted a topic in ArchivesBangladesh won the toss and are batting first 102/2 in 22.1 overs Pretty good start.
BD win toss and elect to field. Defensive move, but sensible, given the shakiness in their batting away from home. Toyger fans are howling about Mushy's mistake, but I think that's because they over-estimate their own team. Captain knows better. I like the look of this pace bowler Roy - he went for a few runs already, but he looks the part. Don't know if he can put up consistent spells, but hits the deck. Hard to win tests if you are just going to depend on opponents making mistakes though. BD need to control the run flow, and then try and build a bit of pressure.
