Bangladesh bat in series opener
Published on :19th January 2009
Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat against Zimbabwe in the first of three one-day internationals in Mirpur. Bangladesh fielded the same side that squandered a superb shot to beat Sri Lanka in the final of the tri-series, and there were no changes to the Zimbabwean outfit that was crushed by Sri Lanka in their last ODI. Mohammad Ashraful, Bangladesh's captain, said on the eve of this match that he expected a 3-0 sweep. The last time these two sides met, Bangladesh were upset, but the hosts were able to raise their game when it mattered.

Six for five, yet Bangladesh lost
Published on :17th January 2009
Before Sri Lanka's chase began, few would have placed even a taka on Bangladesh defending 152. At the end of eight dramatic overs, unprecedented in Bangladesh cricket history, the score read 6 for 5 and the improbable seemed likely. As it happened, a freakish blitz from a tailender to settle the issue but, even in defeat, Bangladesh were not disgraced. Their level of commitment and body language and their overall performance in the field were remarkable but those eight overs showed just what Bangladesh are fully capable of as a unit.
