Abdur Razzak to Ntini, OUT, Another famous win for Bangladesh. The players hug each other. This is definitely bigger than the win against India. SA were ranked no 1. No longer though. Now they slip to the second position. Tossed-up on the stumps, Ntini tries to flick it to the on side, gets a leading edge which balloons over cover. Mortaza runs back and takes it. The players mob each other. Stumps are grabbed as souvenirs. The show has just begun for Bangladesh. The celebrations will go long in the night in Dhaka and other parts of Bangladesh. They have a devoted contigent who live outside the country. This will be a special moment to all of them.

This is Sriram Veera, signing off for Cricinfo. Good bye and good luck.

Joydip Das: "During the 90s, I spent a lot of time (and money) to watch Bangladesh lose match after match in Dhaka's Bangabandhu Stadium, even against Kenya. Guess now I'm being paid back by this wonderful Bangladeshi team..."
