Brought in to replace Khaled Mashud in 2003, Mohammad Salim knew his time with the national team would depend on the selectors' willingness to do without the former national captain. Mashud was under enquiry by the BCB after the 2003 World Cup debacle, and three matches into the subsequent tri-series involving South Africa and India, Salim was called up by the new set of selectors as a means to punish Mashud. The Khulna-born wicketkeeper had one dismissal in his ODI debut, before being picked for the two Tests against South Africa. He aggregated 49 runs in the series, and was dropped thereafter in favor of Mashud.
But Salim had better memories for Khulna, for whom he played till the 2008-09 season, scoring a few runs and a effecting plenty of dismissals. He continues to play club cricket, though he had to give up his Khulna spot for younger wicketkeepers.
When Mitchell Johnson hit Virat Kohli on the helmet with a bouncer, Australian fielders came from everywhere. Mental disintegration had gone, replaced by the cricket unity. Two teams, one family.
From the bouncer that struck him on the badge of his helmet to the bouncer that dismissed him, Virat Kohli's century, and his duel with Mitchell Johnson, made for compelling human drama
After the tragedy of Phillip Hughes' death, this match showed that cricket and life will continue to go on. This time Test cricket dug in and got through to tea.
