Time To Gain Some National Pride

F Waliullah
We have everything - talent, some good players in our line-up, a good coach, a relatively good infrastructure for a new emerging test nation - what we don't have is past records to show for it.

Now its about time that we make a few of those records for us that were made against us. The target for tomorrow should be to go for Habibul Bashar's second test century - remember nobody has scored a test century for the second time in Bangladesh's test cricket history. The target should be for Rajin Saleh to go for his maiden test fifty on debut.

With some responsibile batting from the tail enders along with some consistent performance from Alok Kapali and Khaled Mashud on the forth day of this first test match, then we can very well draw our first ever test match - after playing the full five days.

Let not this test match be like all the good test matches that Bangladesh had - leading to defeat, defeat and defeat.

I know that our team is better than this current Pakistan team, but can the boys show it on the field?
