The invitation had gone out to four bowlers.

Enamul came and not used to foreign food, had indigestion after taking a starter !

Mashrafee ploughed in . Eating little morsels, then took a bite of a main course and dropped another one on the carpet.

Rafique had the starter, main course, went back for a second helping and a dessert.

Shahadat forgot about the dinner altogether. Gatecrashed at the last minute, head-banged a guest as they were leaving, just to remind the hosts that he should be invited for the next dinner !!

Hope Enamul will get used to foreign food soon...

And by the time Bashar arrived at the dinner it was a bit too late...party was over!

I thought there were some Kenyan apetizers on the table enjoyed by the whole team!

Behind every joke there is pain !

What I find painful is that at the end of the day, despite all that happened , Mashrafee's dropped half-a-catch, Bashar's silly run-out etc., the final target, in the normal course of events, was still enough. This was a wicket where one mistake was all you were allowed. Example: Gilchrist. He played the innings of the match curbing his normal style. Yet, in the second knock, he forgot the basic rule of playing on this surface, i.e. play straight, tried a shot across the line and promptly got bowled.
Clarke played abysmally and he would have got out soon after, if he had not to that ball ! Warne, for a great spinner, had no clue in either innings !

I repeat 307 was more than enough. The reason was not that the Aussies were batting. You cannot compare this wicket to Manchester and Jo'burg. Those wickets were eminently playable. Our bowlers except Rafique just did not have killing instinct to mop up.

We go on about how good Mashrafe is. How many tests has he played ? He is yet to get five wickets in an innings ! Compare him to Brett Lee. He leaks runs like a sieve but does grab wickets. A strike bowler's job is to get wickets, not worry about runs. Effectively, Shahadat is becoming the strike bowler as he proved against the Sri Lankans.
