'Win gives back our confidence'

'Win gives back our confidence'

On way to making an unbeaten 161, Tillakaratne Dilshan overtook Aravinda de Silva as Sri Lanka's highest individual scorer in a World Cup match. De Silva hit 145 against Kenya in the 1996 World Cup which the in-form Dilshan erased from the record books yesterday in style, but the right-hander said he did...

'We didn't play well'

'We didn't play well'

"Like batting, bowling also needs partnerships to become successful." This was the way how Mashrafe Bin Mortaza expressed his frustration when he was asked about his brilliant bowling effort after his side's 92-run defeat against Sri Lanka at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) yesterday. The Bangladesh captain's bowling was the only silver lining in the...

Mash confident of acing MCG test

Mash confident of acing MCG test

It's a huge ground this; the MCG. Three times the capacity of the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium at Mirpur; one could probably play two matches side-by-side here. Even if half the stands here are occupied with Bangladeshi supporters, the Melbourne Cricket Ground can become a haven for the Tigers; for nowhere have they ever...

Can Chandika twist the tale?

That today's game has the potential to decide Bangladesh's fate in the World Cup is a fact that is quite well known. Many of Bangladesh's players believe that they have a higher chance of beating Sri Lanka as opposed to England or New Zealand and want to make the most of the match...

'We haven't played our best cricket yet'

Unlike their opponents, Sri Lanka have had a good experience in Australian conditions. Having played against Bangladesh a number of times in the last one year, they also know their opponents quite well. The Lankans in fact have won six out of the 17 matches at this venue as a result there is no shortage of experience. The recent picture however has been gloomy. They went down to Zimbabwe in the warm-up, were thumped by New Zealand and then struggled...

Mominul to bat down the order

If everything goes according to plan then left-handed batsman Mominul Haque will once again bat late in the order in the Tigers' third group match against Sri Lanka at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on February 26. The 23-year-old batted at number nine position in the match against Afghanistan and that raised many eyebrows. The batsman's assignation in ODI cricket has not been as fruitful as his performances in Tests and that is reflected in his averages in the two versions. Mominul came...
