    Good chase that.

    Interesting game and associates obviously improving, clearly we need to bomb them out of future events lest they embarass the big boys again.

    I can't even remember what he was going on about now.

    Would not have figured that out. My beef is more with the number of commonwealth expats they got playing for them. Don't see how a situation like that benefits the cricketing scene there.

    I'm not a big fan of teams full of expats for other reasons, but it absolutely does benefit the cricket scene there. Players with experience and coaching in more established cricketing nations are invaluable in passing on what they gained to other cricketers on the local scene and, in a more tangible sense, better performing teams get more exposure and much more ICC funding.

    I think it's a shame at times that countries with a stronger cricket culture or a more competitive local scene end up missing out on that exposure and funding so countries full of expats or heritage players can get it, but there's no doubt these players help advance cricketer in the countries they represent (even if not world cricket per se).

    Haha his action definitely creates the illusion of him swinging it at times because of the arc his arm comes over through, but he definitely moved that first one a fair way.

    Nah he just speared 2 deliveres down leg side and the commentators started jizzing about swing.

    In fact his entire over's been rubbish yet the comms are going mad for some reason.

    You are not wrong. but a team with only expats doesn't evince much interest in the local community unless they achieve unexpected success. Else I'm sure the US and Canada would have been knocking on the doors of full test status by now. Besides it feels more like watching a mish mash of rejects from the established cricketing nations when teams like UAE and Hong Kong play.

    Bangladesh clearly didn't watch Malla bat in the first game. Hit a patient 50 odd and I'd be surprised if more than 10 of them came on the off side. Terrible field set.

    Haha he shut me up well and truly by going inside out over cover

    Quite possibly the most bottom-handed version of that particular shot I've ever seen though.

    I said it before but given the India-Nepal border is open, Ranji Trophy teams would be absolutely mad not to look at Paras Khadka; he's a class bat. For all I know they already have and he's not interested but I'd be highly surprised if he couldn't cut it in Indian domestic cricket.
