Default 'Tigers' win no upset'

'Tigers' win no upset'
The Bangladesh cricket team infused life into the Asia Cup when they pulled off a stunning 5-wicket victory over India at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Friday, throwing the competition wide open. Among those who appreciated the

Tigers' rabble rousing performance was Pakistan opener Mohammad Hafeez.

“I watched the match, and I must give the credit to Bangladesh,” said Hafeez while talking to the media at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday. “They were very positive, and they were more aggressive in the field, that is the reason why they won the game. I congratulate them."

The ever-improving all-rounder was not prepared to call Bangladesh's win a shocking result as he felt that they have been on an upward swing for some time.

“I wouldn't call it an upset. I personally feel that Bangladesh are getting towards the positive things, because their approach is getting positive day by day and I think it's a good thing for their cricket,” Hafeez said of their opponents in the first game, in which Bangladesh lost by the narrow margin of 21 runs.

Opponents start respect us. It is true we progress.

We have an attacking feel to our cricket because all three cricketers Nasir, Jahirul and Nazimuddin are attacking players. I hope these guys cement their places so that we wont have to see Kayes, Rockibul, naeem again in the line up

Do we TIGERS really have to care who credits us or NOT? We have just earned it and the WORLD of Cricket knows that.

I don't think only winning the cup is the measurement of progress.If we can defend harder than before which we showed last two matches. It's the sign of progress.

Ya, but winning the cup is a sure sign of progress and competitive matches will be still debated with many factors/ifs/buts etc...

Infact, most of cricketing world will ultimately measure progress by the wins and wins only. Development at the Macro level won't be that much acceptable to the cric world, that widely. But since we know our past, so we will definitely count it as improvements.
