Northern Territory News gives news about Bangladesh Cricket Team

Bangladesh shrugs off 'practice' loss

PETER TIFFEN August 19th, 2008 BANGLADESH coach Jamie Siddons played down yesterday's one-day cricket loss to the AIS in Darwin. "It's practice. Winning is not the most important thing at this stage," Siddons said.
Because I come here to get my compensation related my shoulder injury from CA. Where is my lawyear?
The AIS smashed the Bangladesh attack all over Gardens Oval, scoring 4-330 in its 50 overs after being sent in to bat.

Thank God. It is only 4-330 not 4-440.
It then held its nerve to win by 14 runs despite a daring assault on the daunting target by opener Tamim Iqbal Khan and Tigers batting maestro Mohammad Ashraful. Siddons said Bangladesh was still recovering from its "horrendous" 35-hour series of flights to Darwin and its main focus was the international series against Australia at the end of the month. "Hopefully we will be full of steam by the last game and ready for the ODIs. They are the important ones not these," he said. But AIS captain Moises Henriques said it was a big payoff to get a win over an international side. "This is the tour that we have been training for for the past four months," Henriques said.
And Bangladesh
training for the past four months to play game against Australia team.
"We batted really well and although we were under the pump early on in the field we brought it back well." Left-arm orthodox spinner Jon Holland starred for the AIS taking 4-43 from his 10 overs. With Bangladesh threatening at 3-238 he bowled dangerman Ashraful for 71 to start a Tigers' slide that saw them lose 4-14. The Tigers rallied again, but 15 runs in the last over proved beyond the final batting pair. Henriques had a great all-round match taking 3-38 including the scalp of Tamim who, batting with a runner after injuring a leg, blasted 85 from 65 balls inluding 16 fours and two sixes to put Bangladesh well ahead of the required run rate. Earlier, Henriques clobbered 69 from 41 deliveries twice lifting the ball into the Botanic Gardens. Wicketkeeper/opening batsman Michael Wade got the AIS off to a Gilchrist-like start crashing 55 from 39 balls with four sixes. And NSW's Peter Forrest was superb in making 83. He shared in a stand of 139 for the second wicket with a patient Greg Moller (74). AIS 4-330 (Peter Forrest 83, Greg Moller 74, Moises Henriques 59, Shakib Al Hasan 1-45, Abdur Razzak 1-5) d Bangladesh 316 (Tamim Iqbal Khan 85, Mohammad Ashraful 71, Jon Holland 4-43, Henriques 3-38).
