But we beat them in 1997. the best innings by a Bd captain ever. Chasing a modest target of 171 Bd was 15/4 and then rain interrupted revised target of 141 in 32 overs were achived by an unbeaten 68 of Akram khan. If we lost that match there would not been any WC or test status as we were on the blink of elimination. Scorecard
Twenty20 is not a gentleman's game. It's like a one-night stand and not a marriage. It is a street format and the goonda doesn't know what is a late cut or a cover drive
