Sprighty Bangladesh Dump Mediocre West Indies

Monday, July 13th, 2009

After toiling for four years, Bangladesh finally sealed their second test win yesterday. They played against a weak West Indies side, whose top players had opted out due to contract issues. It can be argued that Bangladesh managed to defeat a team with 9 new faces, but we should not forget the performance put in by them. They were clinical right throughout the match.

West Indies on the other hand looked sub standard after the exit of their key players and found it hard to build a momentum in the match. After being bowled out for 345 runs, Bangladesh held the Windies batsmen with top class spin bowling from Mahmudullah and Shakib Al Hasan. Mahmudullah claimed 5 wickets en route to this career-best of 5/51 and compiled 8 wickets in the match. Apart from David Bernad, none of the West Indian batsmen showed the patience of batting the whole day and eventually they were bowled out for 181 runs.

This victory will definitely be a confidence booster for Bangladesh, which is desperately looking for a feat after earning a Super Eight berth in the 2007 World Cup.

World Cup matches moved out of Pakistan

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Pakistan has been stripped of hosting rights for the 2011 World Cup because of the “uncertain security situation” in the country, the ICC said.
“It is a regrettable decision (but) our number one priority is to create certainty and…deliver a safe, secure and successful event,” ICC president David Morgan said in a statement.
The ICC added that Pakistan was unlikely to resume hosting any cricket at all until 2011. It also said the World Cup secretariat would be moved out of Pakistan to a location to be decided by the organising committee. India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, the other co-hosts, will now share the 16 matches that were to be held in Pakistan.
