Swinging Binny stuns Bangladesh

Who would be interested in a hastily-organised, meaningless bilateral ODI series taking place in the shadow of the football World Cup, that too with several of the game's biggest stars being rested. Judging from the vast swathes of empty stands in the usually packed Mirpur stadium, and the struggles to get a television broadcaster in India, not many. Those who did tune in today though caught one of those gobsmacking, prediction-defying results that make sport captivating to watch.

Two days ago, Bangladesh posted 272 in Mirpur and their captain had felt that had not been sufficient. Today, at the same ground, India were knocked over for 105, but that not only proved sufficient, it was 47 too many for Bangladesh. Pacy teenage debutant Taskin Ahmed was the star of the first half of the game, with a five-for that kept India to their lowest total against Bangladesh, but that faded into insignificance as Stuart Binny conjured figures of 6 for 4 to extend the home side's losing streak to nine.

On a track with plenty of juice, spiced up further by a rain burst that interrupted play for two-and-a-half hours, the quicks thoroughly enjoyed themselves. This is not a stadium which is usually favourable to them, but today the pitch was as helpful as an early-summer Headingley surface, with spiteful deliveries being served up with alarming regularity.

The batsmen found how testing the conditions would be on the first two balls of the game itself as Mashrafe Mortaza nearly had both India openers lbw, though the appeal against Robin Uthappa was turned down. It didn't get any easier over the course of the game, and no batsman looked comfortable in the middle, though hardly any of them showed the necessary resolve to grind through their way through tough patches.

After Taskin's burst, Bangladesh seemed set for victory as they survived some nervy moments to get to 39 for 2. Enter Binny, whose gentle medium-pace - which was granted only one over by MS Dhoni on Binny's debut - turned into vicious, unplayable swing. He had Mithun Ali beaten twice in his first over, before the torrent of wickets began that transformed the day into the highlight of his career.

Mushfiqur Rahim edged to the keeper down the leg side in his second over, and the other settled batsman, Ali, flicked a catch to square leg in his third. One ball later, Mahmudullah tried an expansive drive away from his body to be caught at gully. At 50 for 5 in the 14th over, Bangladesh nerves began to jangle.

At the other end, Mohit Sharma struck twice in the 15th, first with a ripsnorter that reared and swerved away to send back Bangladesh's best batsman Shakib Al Hasan, and later when Ziaur Rahman's attempted slog only reached as far as the fielder at square leg. The four wickets in eight balls had virtually killed off the chase. It took Binny a couple more overs to finish off the game, and upgrade his figures to the best by an Indian in ODIs.

Briefly, Taskin had a chance of getting the best bowling by a Bangladeshi in ODIs. He had to settle for third on that list, but the performance justified the hype that heralded his arrival to the one-day stage. He showed off his confidence by banging in a bouncer on his first ball in ODI cricket. Another short ball got rid of the in-form Uthappa, who top-edged a pull to mid-off for 14, and he had Ambati Rayudu lbw in his next over. A delighted Taskin chest-bumped Mashrafe in celebration as India wobbled at 28 for 3.

Both bowlers were getting the ball to swerve around dramatically, but neither were tempted to experiment too much by the juice in the surface as they served up plenty of spiteful deliveries. If India could have chosen two men to counter the situation, they would have backed the technically correct Cheteshwar Pujara and the vastly experienced Suresh Raina. Pujara was watchful, surviving some nervy moments early, while Raina was more aggressive as Bangladesh's quicks dropped it too short against him.

Just when Pujara seemed to be settling down, Taskin got one to jag past Pujara's defence to get him lbw. Wriddhiman Saha then joined the list of batsmen today to be lbw attempting to play the ball in the region of midwicket. Raina had been the most impressive of India's batsmen, but he was run out after a uncharacteristically lacklustre attempt at a second. That dismissal came on Stuart Binny's first ball and left India at 66 for 6 in the 17th over.

There were still 24 overs to go, but India's lower-order didn't show the cricketing nous to stick around, especially with the rain clouds hovering. India lost their two allrounders cheaply: Akshar Patel was bowled after hitting two of his five deliveries for boundaries and Binny nicked a wide one to the keeper. The tailenders swung their bat around and managed to get India to triple digits, before Binny produced the performance that this low-profile series is likely to be remembered by.

    Before we overdo what we always do - lets not build Binny to be the remedy for all maladies on the basis of one performance. He bowled well but for him to prove himself to be worthy of the 3rd/4th seamer position in the test team he will need to perform consistently. By that I don't expect him to pick up bagful of wickets each time but definitely be able to perform a holding job and contribute with a couple of wickets. Till then lets look at this as a good one off performance and hope he can continue to bow well.

    Questions definitely need to be asked of the batsmen - I saw the game and have to say that while the conditions were tough, not many seemed either to have the technique or the temperament to bat for long periods in such conditions. That's something that needs addressing - a Bangladesh may not have been able to capitalize but others will.

    When will Indian selectors realize Pujara is not suitable for short formats. Even Kings XI ran out of patience and dropped him for good during the 2nd half of their campaign in recent IPL. He is only suited to test cricket where he has the luxury of playing himself in for a session or two before thinking of scoring any runs. He puts so much pressure on rest of batsmen around him that they end up getting to rash shots to keep up the scoring rate. There were several younger players who flourished in recent IPL. Why can't they be tried instead of Pujara?

    In last t20 world cup in a commentary Sourav Ganguly told that BD pitches need to be grass on and domestic cricket must play under quality pitches not flat lower wickets. Current BD players problem is actually they do not know what to do in difficult or pressure situations (low moral, losing tend ). that's why BCB should prepare tough difficult tracks all over BD domestic cricket for next two seasons. there are two advantages , while players will play difficult condition they will learn how to come back, mental strength will be higher and that will make ease for them in any condition and situations in any part of world. When you actually do not know about your actual ability then your team performance will be unstable. this is not the end of cricket for BD. i will not blame players a single bit, all responsibility goes to officials and administrators of BD cricket for last 14 years. stop organizing world cricket events and spend the money to build a quality cricket academy.

    Although it's only Bangladesh, Binny deserves some praise. However, I'm still not convinced about his selection to the Test squad against England. What role will he be given if at all he gets a go in the playing XI? 3rd seamer? All-rounder at No.6? My guess is, he won't get a single Test on the tour under Dhoni's captaincy. Quite rightly so. He only fits into the limited-overs team.

    As far as this series is concerned, instead of sending INDIA B team, the selectors should have sent the entire KARNATAKA team. They are on a roll these days and would have won far more convincingly. I can see plenty of Karnataka players coming into the Indian team over the next few years.

    BD approach was wrong offcourse as they would have considered a win against India A as a win against India instead of underestimating them. BD had every chance to win both games. First they could not defend a good total and then could not chase a meager one. Indian fans should not jumping to conclusions based on BD series as future challenges are much steeper.

    @Richard Anderson; Binny's great showing was a rare"One-OFF". Nevertheless it has given India a victory when things did ot look good. 4.4-2-4-6 are earth shattering figures which any bowler should be proud of. Yes Binny is far off from making the XI in Tests in England but he has at least justified his selection for India squad in BD. For now it his due to glow in limelight. Kudos to Binny!

    That was a good performance by India. Mushi and Bangla were over confident before the series mocking by an infamous statement and referring this team as weak. But that team has won both the matches convincingly.

    Taskin Ahmed bowled brilliantly. Even though, the pitch was supporting fast bowlers, Taskin's performance deserves a special congrats. He is fearless,well built and bowling wicket to wicket at a good pace. If he work hard and maintain his fitness, he will be an asset to Bangladesh. I am an Indian and I dont hesitate to appreciate Taskin's performance yesterday. God bless you Brother.

    Raina's captaincy is good. Looking at the conditions, he picked up Binny and didnt hesitate to give the ball at a crucial time. He placed the field accurately. Umesh has to improve his line. He is trying too many things to build up his pace and ends up in wides. Mohit was good too. Pujara disappointed again. He has got oppurtunities but wondering why he cant capitalize in ODI level.

    What a match and what a performance by Binny. It was completely his day. Credits goes to Raina for using him. Stuart Binny is a very talented allround player. Earlier he was only picked up in the squad and was never made up to the playing 11. On his debut, Dhoni just gave 1 over to bowl. He was not fully utilized. Also in the Asia cup he played only 1 match where he bowled only 4 overs. Attention was given to other out of form players. One day he can also shine with the bat like with the ball in this match. It is time to remove people like ashwin, rohit, jadeja, dhawan and include the likes of Robin, Binny, Rahane, Mishra, mohit, Sanju for defending the 2015 world cup.

Dhoni, Kohli, Dhawan, Rohit they are also missing in this team.. There will two practice matches too so Indian team will be prepared for any challenge thrown in front of them..

    Pujara was playing the way it should be played in this kind of pitch. Still you can get lbw or caught behind or in slips. That was the kind of pitch, the ball was seaming all over the place. Young Taskin and also Binny and Mohit exploited the conditions well. As Yadav's performance showed pace is not always the answer. Sometimes extra pace may even assists the batsmen and mishits and edges race to the boundary.

    The match was played in the same pitch as the first ODI. The weather made a havoc to the pitch. So no one to blame. Move on to the next game. Bangladesh may even get a consolation win if they bat like the way they did in the first match and Taskin continues where he left off.

    I feel for BD fans. their hopes shattered in every game they think they have a chance of winning. Y'day it would have been pretty simple if BD players planned the chase. 106 in 40 overs isn't a big deal. all they had to do was to keep wickets in hand and try to score 2 or 3 runs an over. They should have understood if it was difficult for world class indian line up, it would be difficult to the BDs too.

    Look at how BD batters got out! It was like they were chasing 106 from 10 overs to get qualified for the final or something. Plain stupid, pathetic cricket from Bang players who yet again broke their fans hearts to pieces. BD should go for a much more matured captain. Rahim is not up to the mark. Give it back to sakib.

Pujara got test century in South Africa and Rahane 90 odd in SA and ton in NZ. If conditions in england are like this, they will be in more trouble than India. Everyone knows how england face chin music in Australia. They were completely humiliated to the extent of shamelessness.

    Safe to say that the only real take-out from this inconsequential game is that if India's IPL-fattened, flat track bullies cannot last even 25 overs against a BD attack --- then clearly , another 5-0 beckons in England once Andersen,Broad,Plunkett & co have a go at this lot. Only Pujara & to some extent Raina , even showed the faintest comprehension that this was a 41-over game. That they won eventually - is testimony to BD being even more incompetent. Sadly, England will be doing no such favours.

    Credits to Binny, Mohit & Raina. Binny utilized the conditions well and grabbed the opportunity. Mohit is actually gave good start by removing openers and Bangldesh's best batsmen Shakib. Both their consistent bowling around the off-stump proved vital for BD. Credit also must go to Raina as well, first having selected Binny to the side, and gave Binny & Mohit to attack the opponents completely, also good that he never introduced spin for even a single over, which might have caused to turn the game away from India. Now, the time to Kedhar, Tiwary, Vinay, Rasool to play the last match in place of Rahane, Rayudu, Umesh & Akshar on 19th June. Positions should be 1. Uthappa 2. Pujara 3. Kedhar 4. Tiwary 5. Saha 6. Raina 7. Binny 8. Rasool 9. Mishra 10. Vinay 11. Mohit.

    @Preyasi Kosam... Had Bhuvi played, BD might have Won also, who knows it ? did anybody even think India wud defend 105 ? did anybody think binny will make record ? NO. So, you can't guarantee anything. Bhuvi is India's best bowler at the moment for sure, but when the ball swings too much it misses the bat and stumps instead producing EDGE or hitting stumps, you wont be given LBW if the ball moves across the line too much, batsmen become highly cautious facing the swinging ball as they get ready to play for the swing. But in yesterdays case the light swing from a non mainstream bowler deceived them, it was enough to get BAT EDGE, MISS TIME,HIT STUMPS etc etc...

    I was always upset with Dhoni, when he never gave proper opportunity to Binny after being selected in the squad. Always been given a single over. Many a times even that single over he bowled really well. At last yesterday he got real opportunity, thanks to Raina, and he grabbed that with both hands. On the other hand U Yadav even in this pacy pitch he could not prove himself. Time and again it is proved that clocking 140+ without bounce and swing is a utter waste. Inda's pacers always clicked with their swings and medium pace. Binny & Mohit proved it again. Given the chance, I am sure he will be an very useful alrounder to our team in future. In fact he can be more useful than then Roger Binny. I doubt in England pitches Yadav is of any use. Let alone taking wickets, Yadav was not even able to be economical. Well done Binny. All the best.

    Binny is not very good bowler to rely on good conditions .It was only a fluke for him to play another one or two series in Indian Team.It is only a rain affected pitch and binny did some arm rollover .Unfortunaltely because of the Bangadesh Batman failure he got the success

    Hi, though I am a Pakistani and naturally I should support Bangladesh, but as far as their cricket is concerned, B.Guyes deserve these types of defeats. Indian players were confident, especially the seamers, they knew that if they could deliver on right spots, they could create a twist in the match, lo and behold, all the seamers used the conditions nicely, and S.Bunny should be the part of Indian team, heading towards England.

    Dear Bangladesh Cricket Team, I am writing this letter with a heavy heart. But I think the time has come for us to go separate ways. I have followed you with passion and loved you with all my heart ever since the 1997 ICC trophy. A young boy was listening to it in radio and then jumped out in the streets when Pilot hit that six straight down the ground. That passion still burned for another 17 years. I never asked for much in return. I didn't ask you to become world champions. I never expected you to even win series against a top team. Just an occasional win or two was enough for me. I thought AFG win was bad. Or the loss to HK was worse. But now this 58 all out is the worst. Nothing can match the love and dedication I have given you. I don't think I will be able to have such intensity of emotions for anything else . But now I can't let this abusive relationship to continue. You will always be my greatest love. You are my biggest mistake.

    Cricket is much better to watch than football. In cricket its having so much of variety test, odi and twenty twenty and also the pitches will have more varieties like, wetpitch, green pitch, dusty pitch. So cricket never bore to watch but football is not like that, most of the people is watching only fifa worldcup. Cricket is best.

    best way for India to do well in tests in England is go with either Jadeja or Binny at number 7 depending on the conditions...

    Just plain awful by Bangladesh!!! One would think they were facing Anderson or Steyn but no it was the medium pace of Binny. Batting was abysmal from both teams IND will definitely struggle in ENG against Anderson, Broad and co. if this what they come up with against a bangladeshi pace attack.

  • POSTED BY on | June 18, 2014, 4:00 GMT

    If Bangladesh wants to make their presence felt in the international cricket arena, they have to first learn how to approach a target . Overconfidence is the biggest foe and Bangladesh clearly revealed that they indulge in that mindset . Talent without the ability to transform it into good results is of no use and that is what they have to be taught . Bangladesh will have to go through a session of mental conditioning without which they will be the minnows for ever . The loss against India,facing a target of 106 was absolutely pathetic.

BD will never improve in the next century either. It is the flop show of ICC to get the wrong country to this level.

    Also, who cares about the Football World Cup if your team is not in it? As a spectacle it is awful. Lower-grade soccer without all the diving and terrible adjudicating is far more entertaining. Give me the cricket over the football world cup any day of the week. It is so hype and expectations over substance and enjoyment. And people always say, anyone can win it (which is untrue as the winner will come from Germany, Netherlands or Argentina)... Why? 'Cos so many nations play football?!? Of course they do.... It is an equipment-less sport for the most part and has 14 rules, thus it is the sport of all classes especially the poor and the poor populate the earth, hence it is the most popular. Is it the most fun to watch? God no.... Is it maybe the most fun to play? It is definitely up there (albeit a tad limited), but I rate its playability far above its watchability. People watch what they know, even if they should know better. Long live the cricket. Watching football makes me sleepy...

    As an Indian fan, I couldn't be happier. This was one of those pulsating games that you just can't keep your eyes off. Like many of you have already stated, BDs captain comments before the series was very immature. He should have waited atleast till the first game. He must be having a hard time to eat his words. But there were few positives from this game also for BD. Especially Taskin. That dude bowled very well. So for a bright future for BD cricket team, I think they need to remove the current captain, and get rid of few older players. You guys need new players/new talent like ASAP, because the way BDs batting order fell today...is not even close to being an International team. Nevertheless, best of luck to both for the last game.

    @Rajesh Menon Ashwin is better than Mishra anyday. Look at Mishra's stats in England last time he played and know why he's not part of the test side. Mishra don't spin the ball at pace and the turn is so slow so the batsmen can easily play him when not playing in square turners. Mishra was outright dreadful last time he bowled in England. In Oval when Swann dominated Indians he just floated it up there. Poor fellow.

    @Vin Pat.. Binny is an avg bowler, but he bowled like a great bowler today, respect the fact. watch the videos of his bowling, he bowled tight line and length, presented a nice seam which swung light enough to get edge, or to hit stumps, pitched it up nicely on seam to move off the pitch, especially didn't leak any runs, which was most important when chasing 105. So he deserves all the credits he is getting.

  • POSTED BY espncricinfomobile on | June 17, 2014, 18:13 GMT

    The way india defended low total is enough to prove them how confident they are. This is the way you thrash bottom teams. Few years back we defended 82 against 2nd best team playing against us. We were the best team of all time. We had the confidence that if we can get out @82, we can bowl them below that. Game was played in Chittagong,Bangladesh. So it was obvious India would pull it off as they were playing against lower rank team not 2nd best. I feel Bangladesh team should come out creating dramas in press and making emotional comments. The only positive for Bangladesh was new boy Taksin. I am really pleased that India humiliated Bangladesh as they humiliated Nepal in World Cup not taking single to hit six for winning run. Respect game. Respect every player, every team. Your so called team A was enough for so called tigers. Bangladesh needs to prove their worth as test playing nation. Cricket Fan from Nepal

Raina played well, unfortunately got run out. succumbed to lowest totals against bangladesh. But binny silenced all his critics, saved India from what would have been a shameful defeat.

    With all due to respect to Bangladesh, they are clearly unfit for international cricket. Their status must be withdrawn and a chance be given to deserving Ireland. Bangladesh can start playing in the Associate tiers and prove themselves again. I am sorry but its a fact. Their presence among the top nations is an insult to cricketing common sense. Stuart Binny bowled well but honestly the batting was too poor for words. B'desh have been given chances time and time again and they have only returned with disappointments. Their supporters keep citing Asia Cup 2012 and WC 2007 as their strong points but its an argument on emotion and lack of objectivity. The same old story reflects a lack of seriousness on their part and the time has come to relegate them.

    Though we cannot take anything away from the great bowling by Binny / Mohit and the captaincy field placing by Raina ,one needs to emphasise that BD team has yet again made a mess. Looks like the team has forgotten about winning all together. All that was expected of the BD batsmen was to bat out the overs at their disposal and they could have walked away with the match. But instead it looked as the BD team wanted to prove a point, with an aggressive start while Chasing such a small total. BD Players are putting too much of a pressure on themselves to prove their ability to the crowd and media and their downfall is directly the result of this pressure they put on themselves every time. BD team has the talent and they will come out of this losing streak soon. Once again well done Team India. Cheers !!!

In an imaginary world underestimating the opposition when you're own record is dreadful isn't a smart thing to do. He obviously underestimated these Kids(in terms of International Cricket) sent by India and look whose swallowing the bitter pill. As Sammy once said, "Talk is Cheap.". Why would you talk trash without ever delivering ?

    This has been a disastrous performance and any team would head their head in shame in failing to get 100 odd off 41 overs.The attitude of the B'desh players,along with their incompetency is the single biggest reason their performances. Tamim shot 1st ball slog just showed it. There's no excuse for these players. They never seem to learn.

Stuart Binny has bowled exceptionally well 6 wkts by giving only 4 runs. thats cheap and mean for opposition. and also Mohit Sharma for 4 of 22. Mohit made the initial breakthroughs and Binny capitalized on it. at half time i thought that this will be humiliating defeat for us but it is for Bangladesh. one match to go and all Indians fans are hoping for a 3-0 whitewash. and it will be lesson learnt for Rahim that not to take any team lightly especially India or its A or B team.

    What? 105 and win by 57 runs? I still can't believe that scoreline. Crazy stuff.

    hopefully, binny will bring same version in seaming wickets in england, lad i am really proud to be indian. Some words for Mr. Rahim. Plz do not consider any team weak. Bcoz those words are gonna ashamed you one day!

  • POSTED BY inswing on | June 17, 2014, 14:53 GMT

    While both Binny and Taskin are to be congratulated for their performance, it would be wrong to read too much into bowling figures on this pitch. It was impossible to bat on. IT would be a complete mistake to decide bowling slots based on performance on this pitch.

    What's Mushfiq going to say now? After all, it is India who won the series, neither BD nor India A :)

  • POSTED BY android_user on | June 17, 2014, 14:48 GMT

  • POSTED BY on | June 17, 2014, 14:44 GMT

    Mushfiquir Rahim the Bangladeshi captain said before the series that he was very disappointed when he learned that the Indian team didn't take the series more seriously, when India rested key players and send 2nd sting team or Rahim mentioned it as India'A'. And he also said that if they lose India will lose, not India A. Now 0-2 down the Bangladesh team already lost the series and they also missed the only genuine chance to beat India in their own backyard when India were not playing with their big guns. I think even our one of the weaker domestic team can beat Bangladesh. After gaining so much experience and getting maximum exposure to international cricket Bangladesh have miserably failed to perform in front of their home crowd. And yes i would like to congratulate Taskin Ahmed for an exceptional debut but for a loss cause. but the way he bowled he a bright and long carrier in front of him if handled carefully. and congrats to India for winning the series and now leading 2-0.hurray

  • POSTED BY kennythomas on | June 17, 2014, 14:42 GMT

    Well bowled Taskin. Rather I would say a ready made pitch to make your debut. If Mohit and Binny can record their best figures and 4.4-2-4-6 is no easy task, then the pitch played its part.

  • POSTED BY android_user on | June 17, 2014, 14:38 GMT

    Hang in there BD fans. I can feel for your pain. Indian fans also had so many heartbrakes before Sachin come along. You need One Hero. One Sachin, One Ranatunga, One Imran Khan to make you believe that the team can win. Cricket is a Team sport. These heartbrakes are the foundations or that hero to emerge. Once he emerge, it will affect the entire nation positively in every aspect of life. Many sub heroes will emerge in all the field incluidng cricket. Hang in there BD fans. Congrats to India. Biinny you beauty!

    I think when a batsman like c.pujara struggles to make a contact with the ball,you have to say it was obviously going to be tough for the Bangladeshi batsmen..still taking nothing away from Taskin..nd congratulate him for his 5wicket haul in his debut..nd finally congrats to Binny...and to raina's version of TEAM INDIA for winning the match and also the series..

    Binny bowled amazing line and length but I feel BD has to play Zim and associates if they cannot even compete with India A team .It is not about losing but this is just too bad .Do not want to take anything from binny but there were far too many loose shots .Hope he performs like this against england .

    So it has been proved that Cricket is a glorious game of Uncertainty. India's good bowling mixed up with the overconfidence of BenglaDesh has ended in a glorious series victory for India. Congrats to Raina& India Special congrats to Stuart binny for his glorious. Figure of 6 Wickets for just 4 runs. Special Congrats for Mohit Sharma also for his 4 wickets. Both together has created yet another history for BenglaDesh though not in winning. An interesting Match to remember for a long time

    Taskin Ahmed bowled really well I have to say.. His line amd length were emaculate to say the least and conditions were also favouring him but I am taking nothing away from him, all the credit goes to him for such a fantastic debut in ODIs.. But Bangladesh haven't capitalise on the advantage of chasing a low total..They are 56-8 at the moment.. Indian bowlers are bowling well too.. Mohit Sharma took 4 wickets along with Stuart Binny who has also picked up 4 wickets.. A humdinger of sorts now.

    This kind of pitch is the right way for BD to develop as a cricket nation. more and more domestic cricket will be played this kind of bounce surface players will learn how to cope with difficult pressure situation. Come on BCB. Forget about one or two or a series. Just plan a good competitive domestic cricket . need a world class cricket academy solely purposed for Cricket. Just look at how batsman is collapsing. just do not have the patience to stay at the pitch. sometime in pressure situation players need to play patience game. even wait for 2/3 overs to get a single.

    One must agree that the manner in which Taskin was bowling and the bounce and pace made batting on a wicket helping pacers and swing. The swinging ball took toll with many LBWs

  • POSTED BY Haleos on | June 17, 2014, 12:55 GMT

    Tamim improved infinitely in this match. Scored 4. Well done.

  • POSTED BY M_Rakibul_Islam on | June 17, 2014, 12:18 GMT

    I just wonder what would happen if Raina had been left out of the squad for some rest! India could b all out within 80 without Raina. Thanks to Umesh to help Ind to reach 100. Their woes against fast bowling revealed again. Debutant Taskin was really impressive. I've never seen any BD fast bowler bowling with such class even playing 30-40 odd matches. Probably BD is gonna end its drought of genuine pacer! And Tamim looks like a burden in BD top order. He must b replaced by Shamsur in next match.

  • POSTED BY Snambidi on | June 17, 2014, 12:09 GMT

    BenglaDesh had their day .a good day too. Cricket is a Glorious game of Uncertainty. So anything could happen But the edge BD has is is very encouraging for them.

    Very glad to see Taskin bowling today, BD finally found a gym in him but they need to be very careful with him and his progress as he is very young but good to see him bowling fast on a helpful wicket, still a long way for him but very good start.
