drew the only test match against South Africa on the road. posted this because i completely forgot about the tiger cubs with our kiwi trip going on and thought many other BC members would also forget.

our boys batted first and were all out for 294.

then dollar mopped up the tail and took a 5-fer, after RSA dominated our total. RSA ended up with 434.

then mithun ali scored a rapid 80, as BD ended the match with a solid 208-2 scored at nearly 4 runs per over to force the draw.

good job by all.

Yeah, glad you mentioned it bro. I was following them too, but as you said, the Kiwi tour overshadowed the U-19 test match.

Dollar and Mithun seem like a good prospect for BD bowling and batting respectively ... but give them 3-4 more years before they are on the natl. team ... we don't want them to lose their potential by being dragged in prematurely.

How could you forget our cubs? There is different thread where we discussed upto the minute cubs game in SA. Glad to see the big match temperment. Congrats, lets beat them in one dayers and clinch series again....and again.

Quite impressive. Playing in South African condition will definitely help these players in the future.
