Damien: "Looking at Das' first class stats. He seems a good player with a 48 average and he's only 22 as well. Could be a potential test specialist for BD. Surprised he isn't included much more often.

Olivier to Taijul Islam, no run, bunts it wide of short leg. Short one climbs at his ribs and he manages to poke this to short leg's left. It was in the air...
