Tigers clinch famous win
Will go through to semifinals if Australia lose today - Al-Amin

http://www.thedailystar.net/frontpag...hances-1418002

Amazing! Unbelievable! The Tigers roared at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff in a more spectacular fashion than 12 years ago. This is called coming of age. They looked dead and buried when they were brought to their knees at 12 for three and then 33 for four, chasing New Zealand's 265 for eight in what was a potential quarterfinal of the Champions Trophy.

(From 33 for four Bangladesh batsmen Shakib Al Hasan (L) and Mahmudullah Riyad fashioned a spectacular, record 224-run partnership to overhaul New Zealand's 265 in their Champions Trophy Group A match at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff yesterday. Photo: Reuters)

Game over? Not quite yet. Out in the middle were Bangladesh's two members of the fantastic five -- Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah Riyad. The problem with Shakib is that he does not curb his attacking instinct in whatever situation his team is in. Mahmudullah had just hit some sort of form in the Ireland tri-series but could not still be the sitting duck that he was in New Zealand against pace earlier this year.

But sit tight. The tournament, which has so far been dogged by rain, has already got underway with two spectacular results. Pakistan beat top-ranked South Africa and Sri Lanka chased down India's imposing 321 in some style over the last couple of days.

So the caravan needed continuity and something more special. It was really something special that Shakib and Mahmudullah delivered after that opening burst from the Kiwi pace bowlers. Shakib scored an imperious 114 and Mahmudullah struck a magnificent 102 not out as Bangladesh eclipsed the Black Caps' 265, which nobody believed could be possible after that early mayhem.

The fifth wicket partnership of 224 runs between the left-right combination was something heavenly in the context of Bangladesh cricket and something extraordinary in the context of world cricket. It was the highest partnership for any wicket in the annals of Bangladesh's ODI history and the second highest in the Champions Trophy.
But who cares for stats. It's a partnership the 6000-odd Bangladesh fans in green will remember as long as they live. And, would you believe it, the partnership did not have a single blemish? Shakib is always regarded as a special breed and his authoritative innings -- mixed with caution and aggression -- was a truly special one. The southpaw showed signs of hitting form against Australia on June 5 before his innings was cut short by an injudicious call from umpire Nigel Llong.

Yesterday, he did not allow any delivery to hit his pads. It was only on 99 when he became ultra aggressive. Mahmudullah on the other hand was as cool as ice. The right-hander also showed that he was no longer a sitting duck against short-pitched deliveries.

They way they complemented each other in that magnificent stand appeared as if they wanted their scores to stayed in synchrony. They reached their 90s almost at the same time, strolled through their 90s also at the same pace. They were actually tied on 98, before Shakib took a single and completed his seventh one-day century and probably the most memorable with a six over long-leg. It was a top-edge off James Milne. Shakib was in murderous mood after completing his ton off 111 balls.

That six left Bangladesh needing another 17 runs off 24 balls. Shakib was in a hurry to finish the chase -- hitting Trent Boult for consecutive boundaries. He lofted the first one over mid-off and the next one through the covers. Thankfully he did not connect the next ball -- he was bowled -- because the way he was going about his business it would have denied Mahmudullah a deserved century.

When Shakib departed, Bangladesh needed nine runs off 21 deliveries. Mosaddek Hossain dabbed a couple followed by a single down to third man, which allowed Mahmuddlah to complete his century. He did it in style, pulling a Boult short ball down to the square-leg boundary for four.

Two runs off 18 balls. It was time to bask in a memorable victory, and the celebration started in Cardiff and all the way to Bangladesh when Mosaddek steered the second ball from Milne to the third man boundary for four. Bangladesh posted 268 for five and won the game by five wickets with 16 balls to spare.

Will this win guarantee Bangladesh's place in the semifinals. Will England be able to beat Australia today? Let's forget about the future. Let's celebrate a magnificent victory fashioned by two magnificent Tigers -- Shakib and Mahmudullah.

Shakib, Mahmudullah heroics seal epic win
Quamrul Hassan

A record partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah helped Bangladesh beat New Zealand by five wickets on Friday to seal one of the biggest comebacks in the Tigers' history. The duo, who both hit centuries, made 224 in the fifth wicket, the highest ever Bangladesh partnership in an ODI, to scale down 266 with 16 balls to spare.

However, the beginning of the chase in this crucial Champions Trophy game was one of the worsts. Southee trapped in-form Tamim Iqbal leg before in the second ball of the innings and then made Sabbir Rahman give a catch behind the wicket in the third over. Tamim's opening partner Soumya Sarkar was also trapped leg before by Southee in the fifth over, and when Adam Milne bowled Mushfiqur Rahim with the score on 39, Tigers fans were fearing a humiliating defeat.

Unmoved Shakib and Mahmudullah rose to the occasion though, bringing a win that kept their hopes of qualifying for the semifinal intact. Anything less than a win for Australia against England on Saturday will see the Tigers through.

Man-of-the-match Shakib smashed 114 from 115 balls, hitting 11 fours and a six, while Mahmudullah made 102 in 107 deliveries, thanks to eight fours and two sixes.

Mahmudullah silenced his critics with a controlled century. When Trent Boult bowled Shakib, the match had already been all but won. The Tigers needed only nine then, and Mahmudullah and Mosaddek Hossain just completed the formalities.

Earlier, Mosaddek Hossain shocked New Zealand with three wickets in three overs as the Kiwis were restricted to 265 for 8 despite a great beginning. Openers Martin Guptill and Luke Ronchi made a decent start for the Kiwis, who opted to bat first, before Taskin made Ronchi give a catch to Mustafiz, with the score on 46.

Rubel soon joined the party, trapping Guptill leg before, who made 33 in 35 balls, with four fours and a six. Ross Taylor and Williamson then added 83 to stamp the Kiwis' authority in the game, which was derailed by a run out. It meant Williamson's innings ended on 57 and although Taylor (67) and Neil Broom looked set, Mosaddek turned the table.

The Kiwis were 201 for 3, but Mosaddek removed Broom, James Neesham and Corey Anderson in quick succession to leave them on 240 for 7. In the end, all New Zealand could manage was 265 for 8. Taskin bagged two wickets to play his part.

The Tigers will have to return home should Australia win tomorrow, but this is a win that speaks volumes on Bangladesh's rise among the game's elites.

আরেকটি কার্ডিফ মহাকাব্য
এক যুগ আগে কার্ডিফে মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলের সেঞ্চুরিতে সর্বজয়ী অস্ট্রেলিয়াকে হারিয়েছিলো বাংলাদেশ । আজ সেই কার্ডিফেই সাকিব আল হাসান ও মাহমুদুল্লাহ রিয়াদের জোড়া সেঞ্চুরিতে আরেকটি মহাকাব্য লিখেছে টাইগার বাহিনী। চ্যাম্পিয়ন্স ট্রফির গুরুত্বপূর্ণ ম্যাচে আজ নিউজিল্যান্ডকে ৫ উইকেটে হারিয়েছে বাংলাদেশ। ১৬ বল হাতে রেখেই জয় নিশ্চিত হয়েছে বাংলাদেশের। এর ফলে সেমিফাইনালে যাওয়ার আশা বাচিয়ে রাখলো মাশরাফি বাহিনী।

সাকিব আল হাসান ও মাহমুদুল্লাহ রিয়াদের দারুণ এক জুটিতে কার্ডিফে রচিত হয়েছে এই বিজয়গাথা। দুই অভিজ্ঞ মিডল অর্ডার ব্যাটসম্যানের সেঞ্চুরি আর দুজনের ২২৪ রানের রেকর্ড জুটিতে নিউজিল্যান্ডকে পরাস্ত করেছে বাংলাদেশ।
ব্যক্তিগত ৯৯ রানের সময় অ্যাডাম মিলনেকে দারুণ এক ছক্কা মেরে সেঞ্চুরি পূর্ণ করেছেন পুরো ইনিংস জুড়ে বাহারি সব শটের পসরা সাজানো সাকিব। শট পিচ বলটি ফাইন লেগের ওপর দিয়ে উড়ে গিয়ে আছড়ে পড়েছে কার্ডিফের গ্যালারিতে। ১১১ বলে তিনি সেঞ্চুরি পূর্ণ করেছেন।দারুণ এই ইনিংসে ছিলো ১১টি চার ও একটি ছক্কার মার। পরের ওভারে(৪৭তম) ট্রেন্ড বোল্ডকে পরপর দুটি বাউন্ডারি মেরে রান বলে সমীকরণটাকে একেবারে হাতের নাগালে নিয়ে এসেছেন। সেই ওভারে তৃতীয় বলে ব্যক্তিগত ১১৪ রানে বোল্ড হয়ে সাজঘরে ফিরেছেন তিনি। তবে ততক্ষণে ম্যাচ বাংলাদেশের পকেটে!
আর বোল্টের সেই ওভারের শেষ বলে মিড উইকেট দিয়ে বাউন্ডারি হাকিয়ে সেঞ্চুরি পূর্ণ করে মাহমুদু্ল্লাহ। ১০৭ বলে অপরাজিত ১০২ রান করে তিনি মাঠ ছেড়েছেন জয় নিয়ে। তার ইনিংসে ছিলো ২ ছ্ক্কা ও ৮ চার।

এর আগে নিউজিল্যান্ডে করা ২৬৪ রান তাড়া করতে নেমে ব্যাটিং বিপর্যয়ে পড়ে বাংলাদেশ দল। দলীয় ৩৩ রানে টপ অর্ডারের চার ব্যাটসম্যানকে হারিয়েছে মাশরাফি বাহিনী। এরপর দুই মিডল অর্ডার ব্যাটসম্যান সাকিব ও মাহমুদুল্লাহ বিপর্যয় সামাল দেয়ার চেষ্টা করছেন। বাংলাদেশের টপ অর্ডারকে ধ্বসিয়ে দিয়েছেন কিউই পেসার টিম সউদি। প্রথম স্পেলে ৩ উইকেট নিয়েছেন তিনি।
ইনিংসের দ্বিতীয় বলেই শূণ্য রানে তামিম ইকবালের বিদায়ের পর তৃতীয় ওভারে দলীয় ১০ রানে বিদায় নেন সাব্বির রহমান(৮)। আরেক ওপেনার সৌম্য সরকার(৩) বিদায় নেন এক ওভার পারেই, দলীয় রান তখন ১২। তিনজনই টিম সউদির শিকার। দলীয় ৩৩ রানে মুশফিককে(১৪) বোল্ড করেন অ্যাডাম মিলনে।
এর আগে টস জিতে ব্যাট করে মিডল অর্ডারের দৃঢ়তায় বড় স্কোরের শঙ্কা জাগালেও স্পিনার মোসাদ্দেক হোসেনের ৩ ওভারের এক ম্যাজিক স্পেলে ২৬৫ রানে থামে কিউরা। মোসাদ্দেক স্লগ ওভারে বল হাতে নিয়ে ৩ ওভারে ১৩ রানে ৩ উইকেটে নিয়েছেন।


নিউজিল্যান্ড: ৫০ ওভারে ২৬৫/৮ (গাপটিল ৩৩, রনকি ১৬, উইলিয়ামসন ৫৭, টেলর ৬৩, ব্রুম ৩৬, নিশাম ২৩, অ্যান্ডারসন ০, স্যান্টনার, মিলনে ৭, সাউদি; মাশরাফি ০/৪৫, মোস্তাফিজ ১/৫২, তাসকিন ২/৪৩, রুবেল ১/৬০, সাকিব ০/৫২, মোসাদ্দেক ৩/১৩)
বাংলাদেশ: ৪৭.২ ওভারে ২৬৮/৫ (তামিম ০, সৌম্য ৩, সাব্বির ৮, মুশফিক ১৪, সাকিব ১১৪, মাহমুদউল্লাহ ১০২*, মোসাদ্দেক ৭*; সাউদি ৩/৪৫, বোল্ট ১/৪৮, মিলনে ১/৫৮, নিশাম ০/৩০, স্যান্টনার ০/৪৭, অ্যান্ডারসন ০/১৯, উইলিয়ামসন ০/১৯)।

ফল: বাংলাদেশ ৫ উইকেটে জয়ী।

ম্যান অব দ্য ম্যাচ: সাকিব আল হাসান।

কার্ডিফে আরেক রূপকথার জন্ম দিল বাংলাদেশ
http://amar-desh24.com/bangla/index....ls/sports/9902

কার্ডিফের সোফিয়া গার্ডেন বাংলাদেশকে এবারও শূন্য হাতে ফেরায়নি। অস্ট্রেলিয়া-বধের ১১ বছর পর বাংলাদেশ তাদের প্রতিবেশী নিউজিল্যান্ডকে ৫ উইকেটে হারিয়ে একই গৌরবগাথা লিখল বাংলাদেশ। এই জয়ে চ্যাম্পিয়নস ট্রফিতে শেষ চারে পা রাখার সম্ভাবনাটাও বাঁচিয়ে রাখল বাংলাদেশ। ৫ উইকেটের জয় আসলে কিছুই বলছে না। বাংলাদেশের ৪ উইকেট যে পড়ে গিয়েছিল মাত্র ৩৩ রানে। সেখান থেকেই সাকিব-মাহমুদউল্লাহর ২২৪ রানের কী এক অবিশ্বাস্য জুটি! সাকিব ১১৪ রান করে জয় থেকে ৯ রান দূরে বাংলাদেশকে রেখে আউট হন। তবে মাহমুদউল্লাহ অপরাজিত সেঞ্চুরি(১০২*) করেই ফিরেছেন। অথচ নিউজিল্যান্ডের দেওয়া ২৬৬ রানের লক্ষ্যে খেলতে নেমে বাংলাদেশের শুরুটা কী ভীতিকরই না হয়েছে! ১২ রানে তারা হারিয়েছে ৩ উইকেট। চোখের পলকে সেটি হয়ে গেল ৩৩/৪। ভীষণ আশাবাদী মানুষ ছাড়া বাংলাদেশের পক্ষে বাজি তখন কে ধরবে? পরাজয়ের শঙ্কা যখন চোখ রাঙানি দিচ্ছে, তখনই পাল্টা প্রতিরোধ, কিউই পেসারদের দুর্দান্ত জবাব দেওয়া শুরু সাকিব আল হাসান-মাহমুদউল্লাহর। বাংলাদেশ দলের এই দুই ভরসার টিকিটিই ছুঁতে পারেনি নিউজিল্যান্ডের শক্তিশালী বোলিং আক্রমণ। অবিচ্ছিন্ন পঞ্চম উইকেট জুটিতে রেকর্ড ২২৪ রান যোগ করে বিপর্যয় থেকে দলকে টেনে তুলে দুজন দলকে পৌঁছে দিয়েছেন নিরাপদ জায়গায়। ভয়াবহ শুরুটা আর বুঝতেই দেননি সাকিব-মাহমুদউল্লাহ। দুই ম্যাচ বিরতি দিয়ে সাব্বির রহমান আজ যখন তিন নম্বর পজিশনে নামলেন, বাংলাদেশের স্কোর তখন ০ /১! কোনো রান যোগ না করে টিম সাউদির বলে এলবিডব্লু হয়ে তামিম ইকবাল ফিরে যাওয়ার ধাক্কা সামলানোর দায়িত্বটা পালন করতে পারেননি সাব্বির। সাউদির বলেই লুক রনকির ক্যাচ হয়ে ৮ রানে ফিরেছেন তিনি। খানিক পর একই বোলারের বলে সাব্বিরের পথ ধরেছেন সৌম্য সরকারও (৩)। ১২ রানে ৩ উইকেট হারিয়ে ঘোর বিপদে বাংলাদেশ! দেখতে দেখতে ফিরে গেছেন মুশফিকুর রহিমও (১৪)। দ্রুত উইকেট হারিয়ে নিউজিল্যান্ডের দেওয়া ২৬৬ রানের লক্ষ্যটা পাহাড় হয়ে যায় বাংলাদেশের সামনে। সেই পাহাড়টা সাবলীল ব্যাটিংয়ে সহজেই অতিক্রম করেছেন সাকিব-মাহমুদউল্লাহ। বাংলাদেশকে এনে দিয়েছেন দুর্দান্ত এক জয়। বিশ্বকাপের পর সবচেয়ে বড় টুর্নামেন্ট, হারলেই বিদায় নিশ্চিত; সেই চাপের মুখে ম্যাচ বের করে আনল বাংলাদেশ। ২০০৫ কার্ডিফ রূপকথার তুলনায় কোনো অংশে কম নয়! বরং আরও বেশিই হয়তো। আর সাকিব? তাঁর জন্যও কি কম চাপের ছিল ম্যাচটি? আজ বোলিং করার সময় থেকে সাকিবের চোখেমুখে ভেসে উঠছিল মরিয়া ভাবটা। তাঁকে নিয়ে একের পর এক প্রশ্ন উঠছে! সাকিব সেরা মুহূর্তটাই বেছে নিলেন নিজেকে চেনানোর। আগামীকাল অস্ট্রেলিয়াকে ইংল্যান্ড হারিয়ে দিলে সেমিফাইনালে চলে যাবে বাংলাদেশ। বৃষ্টিতে ম্যাচটা ভেসে গেলেও হবে। অবশ্য অস্ট্রেলিয়া জিতলে হতাশ হতে হবে। তবে এ এমন এক জয়, যার ছায়া থেকে যাবে আরও অনেক দিন!

Manohar: Waiting game for Bangladesh

Staff Reporter
Birmingham, June 9, 2017




In a press interview, ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar issued a statement noting: "Look it is now a waiting game for Bangladesh. They have proved themselves well and all they can do is hope for the best in tomorrows highly anticipated clash [between Australia and England]."

"I mean," he continued: "The press has dubbed this match as Shashank Redemption and that is not unjust. However as Navojot Singh Sidhu tweeted this [Friday] morning "@BCBTigers Probably u weren't expecting Daler Mehendi to congratulate you, but you pulled off the game the century. #ct2017"

Meanwhile, umpire Chris Gaffney, set to officiate tomorrow's match, noted that last time he was so nervous was in Durban in 2006 when someone put a naga chili in his curry surreptitiously with a 'relatively high Scoville Index'. He also added that should he be forced to stay awake all night, the caffeine in his covfefe may act as laxative and he is 'leaving nothing to chance' after ordering a 'buggy full of Tums' from English Costco.

New Zealand team, who are set to leave tonight are trying to leave this issue behind, have made special request for aisle seats with leg space, vegetarian meal and in flight features of highest lowest rated movies of Govinda from early 90s era.

Although Shamim Chowdhury was not there to comment, but Ian Bishop who is close friends with Athar Ali Khan who is close friends with an area man in Banani Sector 8, Road 9 near his flat, spotted Mr. Chowdhury in a 'curiously dressed regalia of Henry VIII costume' to show his 'full support for England Lions' ergo Tigers.

Record-breaking Shakib and Mahmudullah stun New Zealand
Observer Online Desk
Bangladesh 268 for 5 (Shakib 114, Mahmudullah 102*, Southee 3-45) beat New Zealand 265 for 8 (Taylor 63, Williamson 57, Mosaddek 3-13) by five wickets

The world called it the mother of all miracles when little Bangladesh beat the mighty Australians in Cardiff in 2005. Twelve years later, in a toe-to-toe battle with New Zealand at the same ground, Bangladesh staged a comeback for the ages, winning by five wickets after getting nearly blown away by their pace attack. The stunning turnaround was scripted courtesy Bangladesh's highest stand for any wicket in ODI cricket between centurions Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah who added 224 at over a run a ball after their side had been reduced to 33 for 4 chasing 266.

All of Bangladesh will now back England to beat Australia or pray for a washout in Edgbaston for Bangladesh to reach the Champions Trophy semi-finals in their return to the tournament after 11 years.

Bangladesh had lost their top order by the 12th over and looked on their way out of the tournament in what was a must-win for both teams. But that was as far as New Zealand's success went. For the umpteenth time, Shakib confirmed his status as the premier allrounder in world cricket with an almost run-a-ball 114; Mahmudullah finished not too far behind, hitting 102 not out off 107 - his third ODI century came with a hook off Trent Boult....

^^ Nekre, tumio!

Ok, this is totally non related. I came across few days ago when going through some old Bangla Blog. Written in Jan 2008 ... Found very interesting, did not know where to post! This was in TE's choto bela ... Very good read.
Sad part - the writer died in Sep 2008 in Texas - health related issue. He was one famous real bangla blogger. Read it in spare time.

Record-breaking Shakib and Mahmudullah stun New Zealand
Observer Online Desk
Bangladesh 268 for 5 (Shakib 114, Mahmudullah 102*, Southee 3-45) beat New Zealand 265 for 8 (Taylor 63, Williamson 57, Mosaddek 3-13) by five wickets

The world called it the mother of all miracles when little Bangladesh beat the mighty Australians in Cardiff in 2005. Twelve years later, in a toe-to-toe battle with New Zealand at the same ground, Bangladesh staged a comeback for the ages, winning by five wickets after getting nearly blown away by their pace attack. The stunning turnaround was scripted courtesy Bangladesh's highest stand for any wicket in ODI cricket between centurions Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah who added 224 at over a run a ball after their side had been reduced to 33 for 4 chasing 266.

All of Bangladesh will now back England to beat Australia or pray for a washout in Edgbaston for Bangladesh to reach the Champions Trophy semi-finals in their return to the tournament after 11 years.

Bangladesh had lost their top order by the 12th over and looked on their way out of the tournament in what was a must-win for both teams. But that was as far as New Zealand's success went. For the umpteenth time, Shakib confirmed his status as the premier allrounder in world cricket with an almost run-a-ball 114; Mahmudullah finished not too far behind, hitting 102 not out off 107 - his third ODI century came with a hook off Trent Boult....

When you are being praised by the likes of Ian Chappell and Boycott, know that you have done something supremely awesome

Lots of pop-up ads are the downer.
