'Focus on fresh start, not just Shakib'

'Focus on fresh start, not just Shakib'

Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha has said that it would be unfair to call the Bangladesh team weak without the presence of ace allrounder Shakib Al Hasan.

It's a team. For me it's the Bangladesh team. Whoever replaces him or whoever comes into the team, I expect them to do their...

It was supposed to be a contest between Zimbabwe and Ireland -- in fact, Zimbabwe were deemed to have one foot out the door because going by form the Irish were expected to beat Netherlands who were looking a little out of sorts, until yesterday evening that...
