    Would be best surely? Then you'd get the morning conditions to hopefully do some early damage...

    2 morning wickets, sure England are happy! :p:
    India are 384 for 6... not sure how good/bad that is, especially considering how bad Bangladesh's batting line up can be! :p: But least Dhoni is the only specialist batsman left, wouldn't been too suprised if India declare soon, considering they've batted through two days already...
    Mortaza with the best figures as usual but good to see S.Hossain have a couple of wickets too! :p:
    Guess you really do need some pace bowlers...

    Yep, though you'd expect the WI batsmen to correct their flaws for the next match, if not the next innings. Just plonking the front foot and trying to play around. Dreadful. Especially from someone like Sarwan. Then again, good drift into the right handers from Monty.

    Harmison continuing where he left off in Australia I see!

    I think a draw is favourite from here. If we get the last three wickets cheaply then we'll still have to score another 200 runs and take a further 10 wickets. We're really missing Hoggard!

    I'd think they're going to slog around till the end of today, in the hope to have enough runs to not lose...
    And then tomorrow, use the swing in the morning + Panesar has been in good form + the wicket should turn a little more tomorrow and pressure on WI batsmen not to get out and thus try and take 10 wickets in a day?
    But more likely to be a draw :p:

    Clueless captaincy by Strauss. We should have declared 6/7 overs ago. We're just wasting time for no good reason.

    Monty wont be able to do it himself, we'll need the Durham pair, or trio I suppose to help him out. With rain around and bad light, its unlikely we'll get anywhere near the 90 overs So draw it will be.

    I dont think the Bangladesh game is a bang on draw, a few decent ODI performances doesn't hide the fact that they've been appauling over the longer form of the game. A shame Sreesanth is missing but getting them out cheaply wouldnt surprise me.

    Edit: Just read that Kumble is out with a fever, now that is a big blow.

    I didnt realise they are playing 5 days and only on the 4th day now... (thought was the last day with Bang to bat 2 innings if out once..)
    The problem is... CRAP BATSMEN!! :mad:
    batting line up scores
    Javed Omar lbw b R P Singh 7 16 1 0
    Shahriar Nafees c S R Tendulkar b Z Khan 32 56 2 0
    Habibul Bashar c S R Tendulkar b R P Singh 0 2 0 0
    Rajin Saleh c S C Ganguly b R R Powar 41 83 6 0
    Mohammad Ashraful c K D Karthik b R P Singh 5 20 0 0
    Saqibul Hasan b V R V Singh 27 49 4 0

    top score of 41, captain out again for a duck and vice captain getting 5...

    looking down the order...
    our main BOWLER; Mashrafe Mortaza not out 67 82 7 2
    and our other pace bowler who played one match in the WC, has little to no experiance (afaik); Shahadat Hossain b S R Tendulkar 31 54 5 0

    why are they so crap :mad:
    Mortaza should change nationality, the rest are an insult to his talent :hmpf:
    Still 160 runs behind... *sigh*

    Should be an interesting day tomorrow if the rain holds off. It took 68.2 ov to bowl out Bangladesh so if India get quick runs, anything is possible.

    Edit: Whoops! India 15-2! lol
