The MA Aziz stadium in Chittagong is designed like a concrete mock-up of Old Trafford, with the pavilion at midwicket balanced by a double-decker stand on the opposite side of the ground, and a pair of commentary and press boxes situated behind the bowler's arms. The ground is situated a ten-minute rickshaw ride from the town's train station, and lies at the bottom of a steep hill in a leafy quarter of the town. Overlooking the ground is the Circuit House, a colonial-era mansion that was used as a headquarters during Bangladesh's war of liberation in 1971, and a decade later, was the scene of the assassination of President Ziaur Rahman. In January 2005, Bangladesh finally won their first Test, at the 35th attempt, against Zimbabwe. Andrew Miller May 2005
