" Right from the first spells bowled by Mashrafe Mortaza and Tapash Baisya to the coup de grace so thrillingly applied by Aftab, this was as good as it gets, a victory earned by inspiration and perspiration, rather than one gifted away by complacent or corrupt opposition. "
I like this one. Actually article is very charming. Thanks.
Currupt opposition? I think he is pointing Paki... He he he

Once again. Well written.
"And while legends and journalists are entitled to their beliefs about Bangladesh's status in cricket's grand scheme, we may be guilty of taking them too seriously. After all, which sadist would put the opinion of a few elitists over the happiness of over 130 million people?"

I loved it. Not as much as I enjoyed the win over India but I celebrated none the less

Let's not forget Habibul (H_fan = Habibul Fan) got us there with a remarkable 47.

Dileep's been amazing over the year and I salute him for being a gentleman. Good read too. Thanks neighbor. :)

(In case you didn't know, Dileep does drop by BC from time to time)

Those who have been to Bangladesh will tell you that cricket is far more than just a game for the people. Like football for the kid in a Rio favela, or basketball for a child of America's most violent ghettos, cricket is a harbinger of hope for the average Bangladeshi. And while legends and journalists are entitled to their beliefs about Bangladesh's status in cricket's grand scheme, we may be guilty of taking them too seriously. After all, which sadist would put the opinion of a few elitists over the happiness of over 130 million people?
Very nice and kind article for Bangladesh Cricket. I think this population number is becoming confusing.
This article says 130 millions, I heard Dav says 140 millions and Atahar Ali says 150 millions, which one is correct?

I am disappointed that the resident conspiracy seekers have failed to notice the one line in his article that proves that Dileep is as anti BD as any indian:

... a victory earned by inspiration and perspiration, rather than one gifted away by complacent or corrupt opposition

where corrupt = Pakistan
complacent= India

"After all, which sadist would put the opinion of a few elitists over the happiness of over 130 million people?"

couldn't be a better ending to a well written article.

Usually I like his articles, even when he calls us "ugly sister of the test family" :)
