who rememebers Ash's MoM for his 52 against south africa in the 2003 TVS cup at Dhaka???
but everyone remembers that six that Aftab hit off Gillespie.
Well said... You are absolutely right. A die hard like me also gave up ( and went to the bathroom finally for 10 mins) . Shafiul re-ignited the belief that we should not give up ( like Razzaque does all the time..). I will remember this match just as that Aftab six, Mashrafee's Shewagh incutter, Tamim hoik over Zahir .... and few other moments as such. This was a classic match for us... We are back on 8 again above West Indies...The fans are back again behind the team and Sidhu is back at his place as Mandira Bedi was!!
Shafiul is the hero for both the wins and hopefully many more that will come. As a player having MoM is definitely an encouragement and a recognition.. I hope internally BCB will award him for his maverick act!!
