Bangladesh beat some sort of West Indies team.

by Naked Cricket

Remember Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan - over two years back they helped knock India out of the Carib World Cup, both scored 50s.While Tamim knocked Zaks around like some schoolboy, Shakib helped see Bangla through.

Today, Tamim was Man of the Match, where as Shakib scored runs, five wickets, and sealed the deal with the final wicket. In many ways it was the Best wicket.

They might only have beaten a half assed Windies team, but face it, they could have done the done thing and lost. And yeah, it was Tamim, Shakib and Mahmudullah who won it for them. Not Ashraful, not Mortaza.

While Ashraful scored 9 runs (6+3), Mortaza bowled 6.3 overs.

It's tough to say how good Bangla was, because who saw that match? OK, Tony Cozier was forced too. As were the umpires.

But this does open a new debate, should weaker teams play second string sides from stronger cricketing nations?

Weaker test nations play second string teams ... "What an Idea sir ji .. " Salam Salute ...

By the way .. Ashraful should be kicked from the team .. he is not good even for club cricket ..

The deshis need to keep their balls now that they've grown some.
that kid ashraful has some sort of mental issue or what i don't know, just cant bat sensibly, can he?

And SP,
that seems to be the only way Che and Badri could ever represent India

SM, Ashraful the captain killed Ashraful the player - it's like making Tamim Iqbal captain, just because he's the best batsman today, doesn't matter how old, or what intl exp he has.

It's too radical for the ICC, then of course, they're more into playing games than sport.

Prafs, gotta be a mental issue with the whole damn team - they just can't take thought beyond 50 overs. I'd like to see Gayle and his boys in for one game, then you'll see another Bangla bungle up.
