Okay, I was wrong. Bangladesh reaching the finals broke this tournament’s usual India – Sri Lanka monotony, but only just. Neither Pakistan or Bangladesh, or India or Sri Lanka for that matter really solved any of their limited over troubles – Indian bowlers are still trundlers, Sri Lanka are sub-continental chokers, and Pakistani batting is shods.
Though Sri Lanka won’t be too displeased I would imagine. They just reached the finals of the CB series in Australia, and that’s where the next world cup is gonna be held. Not Mirpur or Chittagong or any of these places.
Credit to Bangladesh but – Shakib was always a star, and Tamim coming back proved to be a success, now he just has to start converting those 70s into 100s. And I like Nasir Hossain too. Seems mentally tough to break, a barrier most Banga players in the past never possessed.
