    Yes but with his talent Gilchrist really should be averaging 40+ in one day cricket.He gets his 30 and 40s but never really seeems to knuckle down.That's probably the reason that his average is 35 which don't get me wrong is still ver good.

    Perhaps I should have said realistically-minded non-Bangladeshis.

    Good, I'm delighted to hear it. I'm going to wait for more than 1 match before I jump to that conclusion, however.
    Seriously speaking, 4-44 against NZ (it was 4-22 in 7 overs at first but then mighty Oram slogged him at the death), and now this. 4-38 against India!
    But that NZ game is not something I'm going to take seriously. Nonetheless, I always rated Mashrafe bin Mortaza very highly, from the time I first saw him in 2003. Not for a second am I saying he's not a very, very good bowler, you certainly don't need to go telling me that. I did wonder whether the injury might ruin him, but thankfully it seems not to have.

    Hopefully Mashrafe will stay fit enough throughout most of his career , however, I do not have much doubt over the Bangladeshi bowlers, but I do have a lot of doubt over the batsmen. They all start out flashy and then go on to become a Aftab or a Ashraful .....just look at Tamim, exciting player, but reminds me too much of the other two who came to the cricket world at a similar age and made did such feats at first. Now they are nowhere to being as consistant!

    Hope Tamim turns out to be an eventual Jayasuryia *hopes too high* !!!!!

    well he is certainly a useful player and an explosive one and on his day, a runaway matchwinner, that was not the point when we started this, consistency was...

    Exactly. He is consistent. I never said he was the best ODI batsman ever. But he is consistent enough to be useful in 19/26 series he played during that period, which was my point.
