I think I mentioned this one time on this board, that he also stood first in the SSC exams.
Oh this brings back so many memories!! Shamim Kabir was the captain in the Dhaka match. Nazrul kader Lintu (if I remember correctly) probably took 4 wickets! Remember Doulotuzzaman the opening bowler (He died recently)? I used to collect paper cutting! I wish I still had them!

I think Mohsin now lives in US... I think he was the second best goalkeeper (after shantoo) BD ever produced

Sri Lankan batting even in those days was very attractive. Add Dilip Mendis, Roy Dias to that list. Besides, Sri Lanka was bent upon impressing the ICC. Impress they did, but it took a long while. They were far too strong for Bangladesh. Even in the first World Cup they batted gallantly against Lillee and Thompson. They gave India a real hard time. I forgot if they beat India, but India in those days did not know how to play limited over matches. The first World cup matches were 60 overs a side. In one of the matches Gavaskar batted the entire 60 overs and scored 38 not out. That is from my memory, so the statistics may not be exactly right. However, Gavaskar was a terrific test player.

In fact in that match he scored 36* against England.

They did. By 38 runs in 1979 world cup. Infact, India did not win a match against Sri Lanka in world cups till 1999.

I was gonna join in but looks like I haveto wait a little bit. I know i am old (not really) but I still need to wait a lil bit to be able to join in this conversations.

By the way, I was into football. Didn't get into cricket until my late teens (what was I thinking?). I was one of those who used to make fun of cricket and look at me now. Now that's irony.

I think the first world cup I (vaguely) remember was 1987. The one Australia won. I was prolly rooting for England but I wanted Pakistan to win it. My heroes were Gavaskar and Imran khan. It was prolly more because of image than anything (even though both were really good players).
