  2. Preview Tomorrow (02/24) at 13.30 GMT the Bangladeshi Tigers are going to leap on to their relatively large in size neighbor. As is the tradition of the jungle, the pitch could be expected to be green. The highly talented and versatile Bangladeshi pace battery is eager to send chills down the spine of the Indian team. On the eve of the game, Legends Sir Vivian Richards and Shane Warne both finally conceded that the Tigers were good enough to beat a 11 consisting of best WI and Aus players. Bangladeshi captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, signaled his team's preparedness - "We had all our experiments done against Zimbabwe in January. There's no room for any such experiments in the Asia Cup. This is a very important tournament ahead of the World T20." Tigers coach Lion, Chandika Hathurusingha, has been concentrating on helping the Tigers build skills that are vital to success in the shortest format. In cricket size does not matter. The Indian team is visibly in awe of its great cricketing neighbor. It is reported that by just visualizing the threat from Bangladesh, Indian captain Dhoni developed back spasms. In fact, the team is probably confused about whether their captain will take the field tomorrow. Vice Captain Kohli who could face the challenge of leading his team to the wild and hungry Tigers had only this to say - "As many different teams as we play before the World T20, it gives us an opportunity to assess what the teams are like, what the balance is like, what their strengths and weaknesses are and where we stand against them." Indian Team Director, Shastri, after mustering some courage and with a heavy lump in his throat said - "We don't want to always come from behind. Sometimes we want to start also well. So hopefully we'll be looking to do that in this tournament," Teams: BANGLADESHI TIGERS (probable): 1 Soumya Sarkar, 2 Mohammad Mithun, 3 Sabbir Rahman, 4 Mahmudullah, 5 Mushfiqur Rahim, 6 Shakib Al Hasan, 7 Nurul Hasan (wk), 8 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 9 Arafat Sunny, 10 Mustafizur Rahman, 11 Al-Amin Hossain INDIAN HUNTERS (probable): 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 Rohit Sharma, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suresh Raina, 5 Yuvraj Singh, 6 MS Dhoni (capt & wk)/ Parthiv Patel, 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Ravindra Jadeja, 9 R Ashwin, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Ashish Nehra In anticipation of the mauling that India is likely to get at the wild hands of the ferocious Tigers, Bangladeshi fans have already sounded the bugle: Meanwhile in India, the famous Tiger Hunter Sehwag finds it hard to understand what the fuss about Bangladesh is : While Binny feels that by not being in the squad to play vs. BD, he has lost the opportunity to pick up another 5-for: Stay tuned to find out whose blood would spray on the fields of Mirpur, whether the Tigers maul Ind or will Ind produce another Tiger Hunter PS Other Previews: vs Pak Markhors vs SL Lions
  3. For those who want to nominate themselves to create match threads for India in the Asia Cup and WT20 (current key tournaments). This thread can be used for non-India games as well. I think this is an exciting time to do good match threads as Ind is one of the favorites and also if you have a great record with the threads. Below is the schedule: Asia Cup @ Mirpur / Dhaka 03/01 vs SL 03/03 vs UAE 03/06 vs ? Final WT20 03/15 vs NZ @ Nagpur 03/19 vs Pak @ Dharamsala 03/25 vs ? @ B'lore 03/27 vs Aus @ C'garh 03/30 1st SF @ Delhi 03/31 2nd SF @ Mumbai 04/03 Final @ Kolkata You could nominate yourself as the main thread starter or even as the back up (just in case). This process will give the match thread owner the time to work on his/her idea without worrying about if someone else will just start a thread randomly. Talking about ideas - as we know, you could do something funny, something with data and stats, a combination of both, something sarcastic, etc., in short the sky is the limit. And unless absolutely necessary, avoid starting a match thread before the start of the previous game. Ideally, it should be started once the previous game has finished. Please nominate yourself as the main owner or as the backup! As mentioned, you can also use this thread to nominate yourself for non-India games. Anyone wanting to start a match thread can check this thread for availability as well. If no one has nominated himself / herself, the match thread is open for anyone to start. However, it should do justice to the occasion unless started 2 to 3 hours before the start of the game i.e. in emergency. In any case, to be safe and to avoid confusion, it is better to nominate yourself first before you start a match thread so others can see that you have started to work on it. This will also prevent others to start a thread while you are working on it. Hopefully, this initiative will help to avoid confusions, prevent match threads from being started randomly for important games and allow the opportunity to those who want to do something special and/or have a great record vs their favorite opponents! PS Please refer to post #3 for updates, availability and award status! PPS All matches have been awarded
  4. Bangladesh v Pakistan at Dhaka - Mar 2, 2016: 8th Match: Match scheduled to begin at 19:30 local Pitch Conditions (source: Cricinfo): There will still be something for the seamers in the Mirpur pitch but it won't be as exaggerated as it was in the first few matches. There is no forecast of rain on Wednesday evening. It's must win game for the ever cornered Markhors tonite. Today is even more difficult because the Markhors will be battling out in the jungle, home of the Tigers with over 20,000 fans baying for Markhor's blood. The Tigers have lost their rookie left arm pacemman Mustafizur but nevertheless called up the perennial Pakistan slayer, Tamim Iqbal. The Markhors' piercing horns will be spearheaded by the majestic Amir and giant Irfan. These two will backed up by the hot & cold Sami and Wahab show. True to Markhor's claims that they are slow starters since they are waking up from the hibernation from harsh winters in North Pakistan. With the bowling already clicking, the batting has come to fore led by ever green Umar Akmal and India's famous jiju Shoib. Probable teams (source: cricinfo.com) Bangladesh (probable): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Soumya Sarkar, 3 Sabbir Rahman, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim, 5 Shakib Al Hasan, 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Nurul Hasan (wk), 8 Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), 9 Al-Amin Hossain, 10 Abu Hider, 11 Taskin Ahmed Pakistan (probable): 1 Sharjeel Khan, 2 Mohammad Hafeez, 3 Khurram Manzoor, 4 Umar Akmal, 5 Shoaib Malik, 6 Shahid Afridi (capt), 7 Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), 8 Mohammad Sami, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Mohammad Nawaz, 11 Mohammad Irfan
  5. Except for some weird permutations and combinations, Ind has secured its place in the final of the Asia Cup One of Pak and SL is excepted to join India in the final. BD has a chance too. So the question is which one do you think will make it? PS added BD to the poll as well
