Kitply Cup, 2008 / Commentary

Kitply Cup - 1st match

Bangladesh v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 70 runs

Play about to begin and it will be a 40-over contest. Not 41, but 40, inform the tv comms.

5.01 pm: The covers are coming off! The umpires are walking out and the TV crew rush to plug in the stump camera in place. Meanwhile, England have beaten New Zealand. Apologies to both the Banglacricket and Pakpassion forums as I believe, from a couple of emails, that the forums crashed after I mentioned them. Anyway, bookmark the sites and visit them when they are up and ready.

4.57 pm: George Binoy, our man at the ground, informs, "The worried groundstaff surround the main cover on the pitch even as the lights come on."

4.53 pm It has got dark again and the covers are back on. Sigh. No rain yet, though. The good news is that the stadium is half full. Amazing spirit to sit through this musical chairs between rain and sun.

4.31 pm Bangladesh win the toss and choose to bowl. Huge roar from the crowd as Ashraful has a chat first with Rameez Raja. They know their boy has won the toss. It will be 40-overs per side game.

Time to mention couple of forums that you can have a look at while we wait for the start. The best Bangladesh cricket fan forum out there is Bangla Cricket . And while I haven't read them much, what i hear is that one of the best Pakistan cricket fan sites is, PakPassion.net

Bangladesh 1. Tamim Iqbal, 2 Shahriar Nafees, 3 Mohammad Ashraful (capt), 4 Raqibul Hasan, 5 Alok Kapali, 6 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 7 Mahmudullah, 8 Mashrafe Mortaza, 9 Dolar Mahmud, 10 Abdur Razzak, 11 Shahadat Hossain.

Pakistan : 1 Salman Butt, 2 Kamran Akmal (wk), 3 Younis Khan, 4 Mohammad Yousuf, 5 Misbah-ul-Haq, 6 Shoaib Malik (capt), 7 Shahid Afridi, 8 Fawad Alam, 9 Wahab Riaz, 10 Sohail Tanvir, 11 Umar Gul.

Pitch Report: "It's hard, well rolled and devoid of grass," says Arun Lal, former India cricketer, who adds that "there is moisture underneath and that could have an impact". Field first, is his call.

4.13 pm: More good news. The play is likely to start in 45 minutes. The covers are off. Radhakrishnan of Neo Sports drawls, "It's always good to start a game, isn't it?". Whoa!

4.07 pm: Some good news. The players are out warming up. No updates yet on the start of play. Some of the covers are still on. In fact as I write, it has gone cloudy again. Not raining, though. That kind of a day.

2.58 pm: Intermittent rain. Nothing to do but wait. We will give more updates in a hour's time.

2.35 pm: It's stopped raining but it's still pretty overcast there. The start will be delayed most likely.

2.16 pm: Bad news : We got more rain, the heaviest rain of the day so far, and because of this shower, the start on time can be kissed good bye. However, in case there is no play today, there is a reserve day tomorrow. The toss will happen only after the covers are taken off. So let's just wait and watch

Hi there. Welcome to the tri series in Bangladesh. It's pretty overcast out there at Mirpur and the covers are covering 75% of the field. It's not raining at the moment but there was a sharp short shower a short while back.

George Binoy, our man at the ground, pings us with some bad news: "Dark clouds hover over the ground like the alien space ships of Independence Day." Hmm...
