oh, my holy...

Oh My God.

49.1 Gillespie to Aftab Ahmed, SIX, slower ball, Aftab picks it up and
swings it over the midwicket fence.

7 needed off the last over. This is insane stuff.

McGrath to Mohammad Ashraful, one run, 100! for Ashraful.
There you go Will, a hundred for your sportsman's bet...
Bangladesh require another 28 runs with 6 wickets and 22 balls remaining

I was watching the game ..Ashraful played well.
Well as Bangladesh played, Australia looked strangely...diffident on the field. Not the aggressive, hustling, confident bunch you usually see. Not sure what's happening behind the scenes and whether the rough start they have had is causing some friction in the dressing room.
But credit where credit is due - the match wasn't gifted to them, they won it with the bat, much like they beat India with the ball a few months ago.
Still think they ought to play first-class cricket around the world before playing Test Cricket though. But they certainly are more competitive in the ODI format.

oops indeed scott, and now the weekend of misery is complete...

avinash: ashraful's was an excellent knock, though I still see him as quite a selfish player. I guess that, and the immaturity, shall go with age. But an immensely deserved win it was

not sure if he is selfish...he seems a little too taken up with himself. He seems to take the title of best batsman in the side a little too seriously. He's got talent alright, but what he does with it is very much an open question
