Its the cuts and the drives that you should be scared of....whenever you set a field, there is always a gap, and no matter where it is Lara would find it...

Most of these guys I played with in U-19's for Guyana, back when it was competitive. I would like to remain anonymous, but I played 19 FC Matches and averaged 27.59 with 6 50's (HS 90).

My hardest time was against Jamaica facing up to Patterson and Walsh....Walsh had me lbw for 16, the man wasn't even in his prime.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul (West Indies), Mohammad Ashraful, Minhajul Abedin Nannu and Habibul Bashar (Bangladesh).

When West Indies came to play Knock Out World Cup (Present Champions Trophy) in Bangladesh back in 1998, I got a chance to bowl in their net against Chanderpaul in Dhanmondi Cricket Stadium (Abahoni Ground).

Only against Ashraful I played a match before he has come to International cricket back in 2000/01. With Nannu and Sumon, only net.

Another name is Alok Kapali. I didnt know that. Few months back one of my friend ask that do you know whose wicket you got during sylhet tour? He was Alok kapali.

Different experience. Still I feel excited.:)

I don't know if this counts but when I was a student at CTG college, my dad knew Nannu, Nobel, Akram, Rubel and they used to visit us once in a while and sometimes we'd be fooling around with bat and ball.

TIN TASH = you become a begger gambling all you got. Not as fun as playing crickets with legends.

I watched Lara keep wicket and hit 160 in U-19's.

And if the Ex-Bangladeshis were like 50, then no, if they were still good, then it could count.

Why How?

The explanation you gave about TIN TASH player and Mr. WI4EVER allowed TIN TASH players as regular player, So I asked How..................Nothing serious. :)
