Habibul_fan, I think we jinxed Sumon's century with all that talk of 1000 runs this calendar year - becasue soon after our exchange he departed.

Rajin Saleh's freak dismissal was a bigger blow perhaps. Not only did he and Mashud slmost see out the rest of the day's play with a 60+ partnership, the two of them could have hung around a bit more tomorrow ensuring the innings could stretch out to between lunch/tea on the 2nd day. That dismissal on 49 must have taken all the wind out of Bangladesh and really pumped up Pakistan at the end of play. Still, if they can get to 300+ it will have been a good first innings.

I would have to disagree with Habibul_Fan. I think Tigers' chance of winning a test match is getting better every time they play a test. So, this is not the best chance. It is the best amongst the one's that they have played so far. The next one is going to be better, the one after that will better than the next one, etc, etc.:)

Thats the way to go bhobishshot! Mashud will be there till the end. Mahmud/Rafique/Tapash.....at least one of them will use the long handle well.... and 350 is still on

Hey bd will manage 248/6 in the close of day 1.If one of the batsman can do good then we expect another 350 runs from bd.

Rajin was playing sooooo veryyyyy well :(
But he was very unfortunate :(:(
In the 2nd test 2 bad descions against him and now a very cheap dismissal.
But long way to go for him and he will sure learn the lesson from today.:)
