Bangladesh Test Match has Great Outcome

September 4, 2017

The kind of comments the Bangladesh camp is making ahead of the start of the test series, it has surprised the visiting skipper Steve Smith.

A couple of Bangladeshis have come out and said that not only are they looking to win the series, they are actually looking to clean-sweep the Kangaroos.

As per Smith, Bangladesh’s overall test record so far is not great. Their winning percentage out of all the test matches they have played in their history is just 9. So for them to be talking about a clean sweep is really audacious.

But, he can see where they are coming from. The fact is that this is a home series for them and they have felt pretty comfortable playing at home in the recent times and have been able to have some good results against some good teams and they are backing themselves to have a good time against Australia as well in conditions which they know pretty well.

Mustafizur Rahman may win Purple Cap soon in IPL

August 4, 2016

The Bangladeshi left arm medium pacer Mustafizur Rahman doesn’t have the purple cap in the Indian Premier League at the moment, nor is he in top 5 in the wicket taking list, but, there is no bowler in the whole tournament that has been as impactful as him.

He bowls the 19th over for Hyderabad and the 19th over is the most important in tight games, even more than the 20th because it’s an over which sets the game up and as a team, you don’t want the momentum to go against you by leaking runs in that over.

But, rarely does Mustafizur go for more than ten runs in the 19th over and he always ensures the bowler coming on to bowl the last over has lesser pressure on him than the batsman.

And not only the penultimate over, Mustafizur is called upon by David warner whenever Hyderabad is under pressure, at any stage.

Warner doesn’t start the bowling with him, but, if there is hitting from the opposition early on, Mustafizur is his banker and the leftie almost always produces a tight over, giving away just 3 or 4 runs.

An over like that does not always find space in the highlights package because it is a sort of non-event. But, impact wise, any such over is huge.
You see the economy of Mustafizur, it is not even 7 in the whole tournament.

Chris Morris is quickly becoming the all rounder that South Africa had been searching for a long time

March 3, 2016

Chris Morris is quickly becoming the all rounder that South Africa had been searching for a long time.
Morris, at a young age itself, was identified as someone who could take the place of Jacques Kallis as the genuine all rounder in the South African line up.
But, he couldn’t quite convert his batting potential into performances in the early stages of his international career.
However, recently, the manner in which he has finished a couple of games for South Africa batting at no. 8, it would have given a lot of encouragement to the team management.
If he had not been there, South Africa would probably have lost the One Day International series against England.
In the 4th game which was a must-win for them, the Proteas had got only two wickets left in the shed and they were still 50 odd runs short of the target.
It was almost all over for them, but, only for Morris to come up with an absolute master class from nowhere and just run away with the chase.
And, that innings was special because it was played in tricky conditions.
The ball was seaming around that night in Centurion and hitting through the line was not the easiest job in the world.
And, to prove those people wrong who were of the view that the Centurion knock was a mere fluke from Morris, the 28-year old did it again in the first twenty 20 game against England in Cape Town.
