Bangla tigers in the giant killing act.. again

Bangladesh registered their first ever victory against SriLanka today. Aftab Ahmed who hit that winning 6 against Australia at Cardiff in June last year was the star performer today picking up 1/24 in 6 and scoring a match-winning 32 off 21 in the death overs.


Buoyed by the performance of their under-19 team in recent times, the senior side is slowly but surely getting accustomed to being giant-killers on a consistent basis. They are in the same group (Trinidad & Tobago group) as SriLanka and India in next year's world cup and I just hope they wouldn't get their act together (the way they did it today) in one of those matches against their opponents from across the border. The Bangla fans are a passionate and loyal lot and it is good to see their team giving them something to cheer now and then. [Pic Courtesy: AFP]

I wouldn't call it giant-killing. It's Sri Lanka, after all. They've sunk to abysmal levels off late, and without Murali, it was going to be tougher still.

Well, for Bangladesh any team other than Zimbabwe should be a giant. Sri Lankone has really tumbled down from being ranked No.2, but they are still ahead of West Indies..

Only in the rankings. I think the Lankans would have a tough time against the WIndians, to say the least.
