    Cricinfo mistake - they have him down as medium pace, but he's always been SLA.

    Another good performance by bangladesh......losing by 37 runs for me is a victory for them considering they were chasing above 6 runs per over and they didnt loose 10 wickets in the end.

    Yea, I am pretty impressed by Bangladesh. They did well to bat out 50 overs and put 267 on the board.

    They handled Murali like a dream. One thinks if they just attacked Malinga a little more, and didn't let him settle into that short crap at the body so easily, they could have had more runs on the board early.

    I'm really quite surprised as to how well they went, particularly once Ahmed and Bashar fell in the same over. The old Bangladesh would have crumbled to less than 150. And its not to say that SL were in cruise mode, they were busting their balls.

    Quite proud of Bangladesh today. If only Nafees scored well.

    Once again the top-order fails, but some really good cricket from Farhad and Saqibul who are really flourishing in internationals. The biggest debate now is how the bowling attack should be made up - Shahadat would have made a huge difference today, but it's hard to accomodate him without weakening any already fragile batting lineup. The most likely change is a straight switch with Rasel, but Farhad could get mullered again by the West Indies.

    Bangladesh scored more runs than I expected. Good batting from them even though they lost.

    Yeah, its impressive that they didn't lose by much. From what I heard, the pitch was good enough where 302 was very much chasable. I credit their small margined loss to their bowling at the death rather than their batting.

    Good score by Bangladesh to lose only by 37 chasing 300 plus. This after Ashraful and Nafees failed to score too many .
    It may be not a bad strategy for them to bowl Rafique during power play (as Murali does and as a result gives more runs than some other spinners who bowl after power play ) as he seems to be their most economical bowler .

    Great to see Marvan Atapattu back in the Team and among the runs. Good Century by Tharanga . Tougher games ahead , which count more than this one .

    Against Zimbabwe SL may be better of playing CK , Ruchira and Bandara instead of Murali, Malinga and Maharoof , to give those 3 a chance to see what they can do .

    I'd like to see more of Chamara Kapugedara and I hope he does get a game against, even if it is only against Zimbabwe he looks good for such a youngster. Great to see Upal Tharanga scoring a century, gifted ODI player when he gets set. Also good to see Atapattu back on the field and in the runs. Razzaq and Rafique kept it tight for Bangladesh which is good to see, shame nobody could support Saqibal Hasan. If he had a partner and scored quicker then it could've been a good win for Bangladesh. Promising signs early for them.

    Me too. His international record isn't flash but he has a lot of talent, probably the best I've seen in a young player in quite a while.
