Congratulation to SN. We should not hype up his effort too much like Ash. He is yet to play a big innings against other stronger team in ODI. Media hype is a counter productive to any emerging player. Hopefully he doesn't get pumped up with his record.May Allah continue to bless him with many more century, ameen.

There is a certain net language taking over the world by storm. If you try to civilize(!) it, the piece loses its human touch and realism. Its perfect the way it is.

SN needs to score 139 more runs in the next five ODIs (including two against Scotland) to score 1000 runs this calender year.

Batting averages of some BD players excluding matches against Zim and associate countries-

Shahriar- 22.87
Alok- 20.97
Golla- 20.26
Aftab- 19.95
Ashraful- 19.42
Rajin- 19.36
Bashar- 17.92

SN is still better than any other BD batsmen (remind you he has a Test average of 33.5). I Interestingly, Alok is the second in the list here.

He also played less matches against big teams. This year he hasn't scored a single 50 from 8 ODIs against big teams.

I think RazabQ was looking for a front-page article.
