@ 0:31 seconds: did Tamim just throw his bat, why anyone would have a tantrum during a net session. Anyhow, I disagree with Isam that this match will be a dead rubber. Bangladesh winning this and SL beating NZ next match (which I think very probable) will push the BD ranking up in ODI. That's enough motivation for me to stay awake and watch the whole match. Anyhow, don't see any justifications to rest players, we play int. cricket once in a blue moon and BD should end the series in a high. Anyhow, so eager to see Tamim bat today and thanks Isam for the vid!!!
