The first test and first series win coming in a span of a couple of weeks is really a great achievement.


I was a bit disappointed that BD didn't go for a 2-0 win, considering that it needed only 276 on the final day with all wickets intact. But then, i think it maybe a little unreasonable to expect that from a team that was just too eager and anxious to get done with their first ever series win.

Congratulations to Zimbabwe on a good show.

First write history, then re-write it. Ensuring the first series win was important. BD can always go for the series sweeps on a later date.

Bangladesh could go for win in the 2nd Test, but anyway, they settled for a draw.
I suppose I will take a draw and a series win anyday.
Congratulations, Bangladesh tigers! :)

I was also disappointed to see BD not to go for a win in the 5th day (but surely, I did not expect it in the 4th day).

However, we should be proud of our Tigers who could successfully assure the draw (it could be worst for being so defensive) and won the series.

Since it is the first series victory for BD, we should be proud of it and congratulate all of the team for giving us this happiest feeling.

'Three salutes' to BD Tigers!
