Bangladesh is no longer one of the minnows in world cricket. In the World Cup 2015, odds were against us to qualify for the second round but we have managed to do so. In fact we would have made it to the semis if the umpiring error had not occurred. Now they have won the ODI series and the T-20 against Pakistan. It's great to witness our Tigers being able to whitewash any team but it's a proud moment for us if the team that we whitewash is Pakistan. Bangladesh did not just win but they have outplayed Pakistan in all departments. Our captain led from the front. Tamim has regained his form and Musfiqur is our most dependable batsman now. Shakib has once again proved why he is the number one all-rounder. Mahmudullah is someone who we can rely on and Sabbir is a formidable batsman. One of our finest finding in the series is Soumya Sarkar. He has got all the shots in the world and is great to watch when he takes the attack to the opposition. One of my Pakistani friends could not digest the outcome of the series at all and was complaining that had Afridi not been wrongly given out, they would have won the match! We won the T-20 with 22 balls to spare. Even if Afridi had helped his side to get to 160, we would still have convincingly won the game. Tigers were shutting down runs anyway. Pakistani batsmen could not score runs freely at all.
