Ouch.... I wonder what happened to his elbow and knee.

Not his fault. I saw two threads with same pic, so I merged it.

I should have left a note.

My bad.

This pic should have been on the main page. I'm certain it would be used in the future Bangladesh wallpaper. Something to work with BanglaCricket graphic wizards ;) I already have it as part of my wallpaper.

Look at the angle of the dive...thats what makes it so special... instinctively one avoids diving forward like that for the fear of injuries to face and pretty much the front side of the body particularly the elbow joints at the point of landing...

Just goes to show how much we have progressed...a sub comes in and commits himself fully to the cause as if his life depends on it!!!! This is professionalism.

I just want to throw in an off topic pic, as a tribute:


DA MAN who started it all!

This is Pak vs SA WC 92.

The infamous Inzamam runout by Jonty

Inzamam took three steps forward and was coming back comfortably to his crease. Jonty ran godknowshowmany yards from point and made a full length dive to deny Inzy by inches.

only if our present current squad could have taken a catch like that!

Aftab is only a substitute who wants to impress everybody with his fielding.

But neither Alok, Mashrafee and Rajin could take catches like that - when the three of them are in the current eleven, although the attempts were there.
