The Cream ALWAYS rises to the top
Congrats to Shakib - not sure it's possible to love a player more than I love him. He won't always be on the winning side, but there is no questioning his effort, heart or skill.
So, pleased he won the Man of the Series award - one that was well deserved.
This was no token award, given to please the local fans, but one that correctly recognized a player, who with both bat & ball was truly a joy to behold.
His interview was superb - making sure to mention the disappointment that Khulna didn't make it to the final, but also being gracious and congratulating Dhaka for their win. Acknowledging the love the crowd has for him, and the hope that the BPL will continue to be an annual fixture of not only our cricketing calender, but that of the cricketing world.
