Default Was this a first?

A buddy of mine noted that while we've been scrapping through in nail-biters 5 games on the trot now (actually the loss against ZIM was the lone blip in that otherwise 5-game streak), we've closed the game out with the bat before. We always defended and bowled the opposition out.

Also, I think this is the first time we've beaten an established side at the ZACS. All previous wins, by my count 5 of them have come at Mirpur. Good for the chittagong fans to experience the joys. And that too such a WC classic.
