It is sad that the series between the two best sides in the world has been less competitive than the Bangladesh-Zimbabwe match. Hopefully there will be a contest in the last match of the series.

Completely reflects my mood after 10 days of one-sided Test cricket of a so-called marquee series. Lovely work as usual by Rizwan.
