Although BD scored 283, Bangladesh shouldn't be too happy with their batting performance. Mind you there was a dew in the 2nd inning and that certainy helped BD to score few more runs then they could have. The arguments start again why Associates will not be allowed in next WC in 2015 when Bangladesh can still play. Associates nations are not too far behind Bangladesh.

Robin_BD (Yeah we are waiting to witness the real scenario. Sehwag is lucky cause Murtaza will be missing the match (not sure yet). Guys i am just thinking about Zaheer khan and rest of the Indian bowlers. Tamim will start the tornado,which will be powered by Asharaful. Most probably he will be playing at number 7. Razzak and shakib is enough to ruin your batting line up) You're right. Murtaza is lucky to miss out the game. The stadium blown away from the Tamim tornado. Razaak and Shakib got all the Indian wickets as well... Mahamudul Hossain Robin ( you have to play against 30000 crowd!We are eagerly waiting to THRASH India) You indeed thrashed India but I thought there were only 11 fielders from Bangladesh and 30000 were just left their seat while your bowlers were taking Indian wickets.

bangladesh playing well keep it up

I think Indian Bowlers are taking it easy and warming up for the game against England. But they need to pick 2 specialist spinners in the next game. This game's in the bag.
