A Bangladesh in Adelaide

A small yet noticeable part of the Adelaide Airport yesterday turned into a mini Bangladesh as the players, some of them with their family members, and the coaching staff gathered and mingled there on way to fly across the Tasman Sea to play their last pool match against co-hosts New Zealand in Hamilton on Friday.

Tigers Terrific

When Bangladesh beat Scotland a few days back, there was a sense of relief. But when they disposed of England by 15 runs in a thriller at the Adelaide Oval yesterday, the whole nation savoured something that it can really be proud of.

Tigers is about red and green

It appears that two schools of thought exist in the Bangladesh cricket team regarding the fans' interest and enthusiasm.

Top-order batting biggest concern

It is no wonder why Anamul Haque is not Kumar Sangakkara. The Bangladesh opener was gifted as many chances as the Sri Lankan maestro during the two team's respective innings. However, the end result was very different. While Sangakkara made most of those early chances to score an unbeaten 76-ball 105, the Bangladesh opener huffed and puffed to 29 before being dismissed. His technique was severely tested throughout his innings, which was ended by a run-out.

Tigers fans going global

Traditionally it has been the Indian and Pakistani fans that have best represented the sub-continent during international cricketing tournaments abroad. Be it in the West Indies, England or South Africa, fans from India and Pakistan have always managed to be the most vocal and the most visible on television.

Home away from home

The atmosphere and hot weather in Adelaide gave it a perfect sub-continent flair and made it feel like a home away from home.

MCG: The home of legends

“Right over here is William Harold Bill Ponsford, an Australian cricketer who is the only player to twice break the world record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket; Ponsford and Brian Lara are the only cricketers to twice score 400 runs in an innings,” an old man recited these words to a group of visitors as if he was reading from a book of verse.

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.
