Bancroft, Paine named in Australia's Ashes squad

  • PDF

Opening batsman Cameron Bancroft is set for his Test debut and wicketkeeper Tim Paine returns in a shock selection in Australia's squad named Friday for the first two Tests against England.

 

Bancroft gets his chance after scoring heavily in this season's domestic Sheffield Shield competition, and replaces Matthew Renshaw as David Warner's opening batting partner.

 

Paine is the selection bolter and gets the nod over Matthew Wade and Peter Nevill, despite few appearances for his Tasmania state side behind Wade this season.

A big innings was needed, Soumya insists

  • PDF

Soumya Sarkar gave Bangladesh a flying start in the chase of 196-run target that was set by the Proteas in the first T20 at Bloemfontein.

 

However, Tigers fell 20 runs short of the target and the Bangladesh opener felt that if one of the top batsmen from no. 3 to 6 had carried on to play the final ten overs then Bangladesh could have managed to win.

 

Soumya’s 31-ball 47, an innings that starred five fours and two sixes, powered Bangladesh to 92 runs in the first nine overs for the loss of two wickets. Soumya was gone in the first delivery of the tenth over and Bangladesh quickly slumped to 101 for five in 11.2 overs as they lost Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah Riyad in quick succession.

Proteas 'feeling sorry' for Bangladesh bowlers

  • PDF

Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock

Proteas captain Faf Du Plessis admits that players are feeling a bit sorry for Tigers’ bowlers.

 

In this super-competetive era of international cricket that is something that one does not usually expect to hear from the captain. However, it is also an indication of how well the South African batsmen, especially the top order have dominated proceedings throughout Bangladesh’s South Africa tour.

 

In the two-Test series, Bangladesh conceded a combined 1316 runs in three Proteas innings, grabbing 13 wickets. The punishment began with the first Test where Dean Elgar (199) and Aiden Markram (97) put on a 196-run opening stand. Tigers faced big margin defeats in both Tests – 333 runs in the first, innings and 254 runs in the second Test.

The cricket from each side was pretty consistent over the four days and 83 minutes of the first Test between South Africa and Bangladesh. While South Africa played 'spotless' cricket as described by captain Faf du Plessis and kept putting their opposition under pressure, Bangladesh's performance was characterised by lack of fight and self-belief throughout, culminating in the abject surrender of the last seven wickets for just 41 runs and losing by 333 runs on the fifth morning at Senwes Park  in Potchefstroom.
