Breaking/Brief news

    December 28, 2004

    India easily won the decider against Bangladesh, triumphing by 91 runs. Bangladesh though did not go down without a fight. Rajin Saleh made a fighting 82 after having scored 14 runs against India during the last few weeks, all of them coming in one outing while he scored ducks in the remaining three innings. Mohammad Ashraful continued his good form with a brisk 32 while Mortaza had a lot of fun clubbing 39 from just 20 balls. Bangladesh were not disgraced. They fought on to the end, even though victory was never really in sight after India posted 348 and did not become all out. Considering the fact that they've been all out in over half the games they've played, it was a creditable performance.

    Overall, the one-day series has confirmed that India's one-day cricket is nowhere upto the mark, which is why they lie at #8 out of 11 ODI teams. The test series was always going to be easy for India since Bangladesh have not shown anything over the last four years to suggest that they looked capable of winning a game. That could change though in the next month, with Zimbabwe touring. The euphoria associated with the victory over India could just be what Bangladesh cricket needed to kick on. They need to start winning the small battles now. Instead of gunning to win a session, they should look at winning the half-hour, through tight bowling and fielding or disciplined batting. They need to prove their critics, the doomsday predictors and the cynics wrong.
