Vic Mark did not see a negative in BD's approach but we the fan created a whole new thread for fishing for neagtives. Let's rejoice it. It may not come ver oftne in the near future. I see a lot of positives in ths game and its result. I was blown away by thge agressive captaincy. Leaving cover vacant was something I do not see very often. Even in the penultimate over the bowling had a purpose but unfortunmatyely for BD did not yeld result. There was no better yorker than the Trotty edged.

There really is not much negatives. Some fumblings under pressure was just giving the match away and there are a few others. But at the end all those are part of the game and better not to speak, after a win. I agree.

Captaincy was very good and aggressive The bolwers bowled well (Specially the pacers) I think Mash gets a good amount of credit directing the pacers well.

Are you talking about the last wkt taking ball ? That was a slower delivery marginally outside off/on off line, not a yorker. He bowled two yorkers prior to that.

No he's talking about the near perfect yorker Mash bowled to Trott in the penultimate over, which was inside-edged for 4.

Press slams England's 'humiliation' by BangladeshYahoonews, AFP, 11 July 2010
Related Matches: ENG vs BAN, 10th Jul 2010

LONDON: Britain's newspapers were scathing Sunday about England's shock defeat to Bangladesh, saying they had been dealt a "full custard pie in the face".
Bangladesh won the second one-day international by five runs in Bristol on Saturday to record a first victory over England in any format, with the press branding it "humiliation".
"England's meetings with Bangladesh have rarely been known for their drama but there was bucketloads of it as England tried in vain to maintain their 100 percent record over the most junior of cricket's frontline nations after getting into horrible difficulties chasing what should have been a routine target of 237," sid The Sunday Times.
"England will examine their fielding, careless batting and decision to rest key players but Bangladesh deserve full credit for plugging away."
"England on their knees", said The Mail on Sunday. "Complacent England are embarrassed".
"England were made to take a full custard pie in the face - also known as defeat to Bangladesh.
"And the squirming discomfort caused by the sensational success of their oft-derided opponents was made yet worse by a nightmare vision of how their hopes of winning the 2011 World Cup may prove unsustainable."
The Sunday Telegraph said it was "humiliation", and England needed to raise their game in Monday's third and deciding match at Edgbaston to avert "ignominy".
"Bangladesh owed their victory to their superiority in fielding and spin bowling, and to their greater appetite for success."
England were "tired, flat and fumbling".
"Sloppy, lazy and just a little bit arrogant", was the News of the World verdict.
The defeat "should set alarm bells ringing" for England's management.
"Catches were dropped, run-outs missed and batsmen threw their wickets away as Andrew Strauss' team produced their worst one-day display in a year.
"England simply did not deserve to win."
The Observer said it was "a wretched day for England, a joyous one for beleaguered Bangladesh".
"No one in Bristol could begrudge them this triumph. They thoroughly deserved it.
"At first there was an element of complacency in England's batting, which gave way to constipation as the Bangladesh bowlers... kept their nerve superbly."
The Independent on Sunday said Bangladesh "consisted only of heroes, with five bowlers taking two wickets each", saying they "thoroughly deserved" their victory.
The Sunday Mirror called the defeat "Bang rout of order".
"England went from one-day wonders to one-day wallies as they slumped to a humiliating defeat.
"Mashrafe Mortaza's 'Bangers' mashed England's hapless batting into an embarassing mulch".

Bangladesh 236 for 7(Kayes 76, Shahzad 3-41) beat England 231 (Trott 94, Shafiul 2-38) by five runs

Bangladesh produced a performance of immense spirit and character as they secured their first victory over England in any format with a famous five-run win at Bristol. In an extraordinary finale, Ian Bell limped out at No. 11 with a broken foot to accompany Jonathan Trott, but Trott edged a cut off the third ball of the final over bowled by Shafiul Islam after making 94 to send Bangladesh into scenes of wild celebration.

Trott had taken 13 off the five balls in the penultimate over from Mashrafe Mortaza, but James Anderson could only pop the final delivery back to the bowler. Bangladesh thought that was the victory and began ripping up the stumps in celebration, but Bell hobbled down the steps with Morgan as his runner and hoped that Trott could get the 10 needed from final over. He managed consecutive twos, but then tried to go through the off side and edged to the wicketkeeper to leave him disconsolate at the crease. He didn't even remark his guard.

What makes Bangladesh's success even more remarkable is the state in which they entered this game. Two leading players, Raqibul Hasan who top-scored at Trent Bridge and wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim, had been ruled out of the series and one of their replacements, Mohammad Ashraful only arrived in the country 14 hours before the toss. Add to that Bangladesh's 24-match losing run and the previous inability of their attack to assert any pressure and this has to go down as one of the more notable reversals.

After the batsmen had stuttered after another solid platform, the bowlers lifted themselves led by the efforts of Rubel Hossain and Abdur Razzak who shared four crucial top-order wickets as the hosts' batting suffered a collective malfunction. Trott kept England in with a chance as he added 43 with Stuart Broad, but when Broad drove to point and Mortaza only conceded three from the 48th over.

I flicked through some of the Sunday (British) newspapers today. Most of them have brilliant stories and pictures. I bought a few to keep :-)

Sunday telegraph - if you want to see google 'Sunday Telegraph' click on the e-edition and go to Sport (front page).
Front page - There is a huge picture of Tamim jumping with a picture of Bell behind and the caption says .. 'Humiliation'.
Back page - Huge picture of Shafiul last celebration run, title - "Bangladesh beats England in 21st attempt"

Sunday Mirror - there is a picture where Bell is kneeling down. Title - "England on its knee to Bangladesh"

There were several - most of these basically slaughtered England!! One of them said 'Aren't we good at anything?'

Sorry these are all in paper version so I cannot paste these here unfortunately.

The man who bit the bullet on that luckless occasion was the 20-year-old Shafiul Islam, whom Shakib had brought in to the attack with 16 runs to defend, but whose first five balls were all that Morgan needed to complete the job. On Saturday, his personal redemption was completed when he found the edge of Jonathan Trott's bat with five runs and three balls still to come. For the captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, the payback ran even deeper. England were his opponents, at Chittagong way back in October 2003, when he suffered the knee injury that has devilled his progress ever since.
