A Pakistani in Harare, Saad, is an immense source of hospitality to cricket teams from the Asian subcontinent touring Zimbabwe. The Bangladesh team too have been a recipient of his kindness on a few occasions, with Saad’s family cooking meals that are closer to home than the traditional Harare fare. But the team can give Mohammad Ashraful a vote of thanks for bringing to the table a Bangladeshi favourite.
“They can thank Ashraful for the omelettes,” said Saad. “I did not know that it was such a favourite of people from Bangladesh. But Ash insisted upon the omelettes and how they are made in Bangladesh with more spice, and now it is a staple item whenever they come to dinner.”
