"Shabash Moni bhai," was what Khaled Mashud said from behind the stumps, but it immortalised left-arm spinner Enamul Haque (nicknamed Moni) as the one spinner who the team could trust to be steady. Though he played only 10 Tests and 29 ODIs, hardly making a splash, he was around for more than a decade, churning out long spells and eking out late runs with the tail.
His lack of variation in bowling, and ultimately his age, put an end to his career in 2003 after a Test against South Africa. He will be remembered as a valiant servant to Bangladesh cricket through the mostly unremarkable period of the 1990s.
Soon, though, he took to umpiring in the domestic scene and by 2006, stood in his first ODI in Bogra. In 2012, he made his umpiring Test debut in the New Zealand-Zimbabwe Test, becoming the first Bangladeshi to stand as a neutral umpire.
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
