Mashrafe Bin Mortaza

  • Bangladesh, cricket, Mashrafe

    Mashrafe disappointed

    At the end of the day it all came down to “what ifs” for Bangladesh. There’s no doubt that the reprieve that Rohit Sharma got in the 40th over proved to be a crucial turning point in the game. Sharma, who was in his 90s at that point, went on to hammer a series of boundaries later in the game.

    Tigers train hard before Afghanistan clash

    Even as Ireland were hunting down West Indies in Nelson, in a quiet corner of quiet Manuka Oval in quiet Canberra, Bangladesh were going through a three-hour intense training session. Bangladesh lost both their World Cup warm-up games, one of them to Ireland, and their first opponents in the tournament are Afghanistan, who beat them in the Asia Cup last March in the only previous ODI between the two sides.

  • Bangladesh may play with four pacers

    The bowling combination will be finalised once the Tigers inspect the pitch at the Manuka Oval, where they face the Afghans on Wednesday. Rubel Hossain is most likely to open the bowling attack with captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and if the team feels the match needs an extra pacer they will include young Taskin Ahmed, who has been in good touch, in the side.

    Excitement behind the silence

    It's an occasion the city dwellers are relishing; albeit silently. When Anges, a Malaysian born Australian, knows what awaits the city in two months time even though the sport is not popular in her birthplace, then it is symptomatic that the cricket loving people in the country are all set to make the occasion their own.

    Last chance for Tigers to gain momentum

    Bangladesh are expected to beat Ireland comfortably. They have won five out of the seven games between the two sides. The question remains whether they can stamp their authority over the Irish; something that might help them boost their confidence to their desired levels.
