Maybe one win after all?

From Dailystar:


England may have won the first Test but the war continues.

This time it's the England journalists who will have to carry the fight against their Bangladesh counterparts in friendly match.

The 25-over-a-side match will be held the Jagannath Hall ground of Dhaka University today.

The game also found a sponsor in RC Cola, a local soft drink.

But more importantly all the talk is about former England paceman Angus Fraser. Presently writing for The Independent of London, the tall right-armer has already created panic among the local journalists. It was reported that a writer of a Bengali daily announced that he would gladly perform 12th man duties just to avoid Fraser.

"I don't care about him. His present physique is too demanding to bowl fast now. I will open the innings", said another daring reporter of an English daily.

Their journalists are mostly former cricketers. Fraser is a former national cricketer but most of the others if not all have played some competetive cricket for sure. I think they will kick our ***! The only advantage that we might have is that our guys are probably younger than them. Sports reporting is a junior journalists job in BD usually, while the English guys probably took it up after retiring from being a county player or part-time league player.
