But I would like to say 'We could have changed the script'. We might be there one day, but not yet, not yet....
We will...soon...

Now it's turned out to be good that Moyna missed 100, coz that's why his effort got caught on eyes even more, as everyone felt he deserved it!

Nothing is worth ...missing a TON, IMO.

Nope, if you consider BD bowlers not as good as SL ones, and also the pressurized situation Shakib was batting in and also the effort he seemed to have put; Shakib deserved it.

Ball of the year I
Anything bowled by Ajantha Mendis, but if pushed, one ball stands out. First Test wickets, or runs, are remembered usually only by the player himself but Mendis' first in Tests will live on. It was the flicker, the carrom ball; pitched on middle, on a length, it left Rahul Dravid completely unsure of what to do, before zipping off, turning away and clipping the off bail. Set the tone for the series.

Ball of the year II
Mohammad Ashraful's wonderfully disguised delivery to AB de Villiers during the first Test in February in Mirpur: it bounced first at his own feet, then again, a little closer to de Villiers, who, completely bamboozled by now, top-edged a pull back to Ashraful. If you fly over Dhaka, it is said you can still hear them laughing.

A fantastic gutsy performance by the boys.

Perhaps we need more rest days during test matches, it seems to have given ash time to think.

On a separate note, ash would do well to bat no higher than no 5...
