Default Still Good Enough

Bangladesh's first cricket captain Shahim Kabir was shocked at the top order's submission that prompted him to say that he should pad up and show how to deal with the new ball.

The disgruntled 62-year-old claimed that he was still good enough then the current Bangladesh top order.

"Look man, you need to remain standing in the first ten overs. Don't play shots unless you have to. But to me it seems they are too hungry to play shots. That's ridiculous," said Kabir before storming out of the stadium half way through first session.

Kabir led Bangladesh in their first international match against MCC in 1977. Talking to a group of reporters at the hospitality box a visibly dejected former opening batsman said that he was still keeping fit playing tennis at his age. And jokingly said that with a little practice with the willow he could still bat better than what the current Bangladesh batsmen were doing these days.

And I am afraid he isnt very wrong... I am sure he can score atleast 1 run... and even that would be better than most of our top order's individual innings (or maybe sum of runs scored by 2-3 of the top orders... now how sad is that???)...
