Default 2nd Innings

Well BD did manage a draw thanks to some some good fielding and to some patient batting by Al Sahariar (43) and Ehsanul Haque (100).

Tushar went cheaply for a duck and Ashraful went for 11. Ashraful did play 71 balls and batted for 87 minutes. He is part of reason for the draw even though he might not share the limelight with Al Sahariar and Ehsanul. Ashraful should be picked for the test. He is the person BD can count on when when we need to stall and salvage a draw. Just wish he had the confidence to score a few more runs while being careful.

Manjural Islam continued with his consistency in the second innings with two wickets for 56 runs in 15 overs, although Alamgir Kabir was the more economical with 4 maidens and givinning up only 3.59 runs per over. All BD bowlers needs to keep that figure below 3 in the test. I want to see Tarek Aziz in action in the second practice patch tough.
