who cares? We Won

you know what Razab da, i personally thought this was a decent West Indian XI, I said in other thread this XI can easily beat our academy side or one of those domestic clubs. This was an XI that had good experience behind their back as well as talent. you cannot take credit away from those reserve WI players as they fought well, but for once (recently) Bangladesh OUTPERFORMED the opponent, when it mattered most!

and that's what mattered.

This win shows that we were prepared to come to the W. Indies, we just had to play our best game.

well, I thought in this test match, our Top order did very very well...even Imrul Kayes: since he gave Tamim the start he wanted and he got starts in both innings, which is exactly what you want from an opener, a solid start. converting it to a fifty+ is another issue.

also credit goes to Mortaza and Shahadat for their batting: extending our first innings from an all too familiar collapse we have been used to seeing.

difference between first and second innings: Top Order! enough said!
