No pretension please, we hate Test cricket

Unless someone calls their bluff and comes up with decisive evidence, Bangladesh have won their second Test match. Please note, their last win came against Zimbabwe in 2005.

And Adam Gilchrist still moans the lack of Olympic spirit in the sub-continent.

Again, unless someone calls the bluff, Bangla Tigers beat West Indies.

Now don't ask how much West Indies. It would suffice to say that the assortment was led by a certain Floyd Reifer who had played his last Test when Bill Clinton was battling 'Monicagate', George W Bush's English grammar classes were confined to Texas and Paris Hilton had just been expelled from school in what was the first concrete sign of becoming the scourge of humanity that she is today.

Now how this win helps Bangladesh, perhaps the biggest sceptic of its own Test status, is beyond me.

And how the defeat helps West Indies Cricket Board to get even with the boycotting players is equally beyond me.

No pretension please. We don't love Test cricket.

Well said Som. I believe Bangladesh should be ripped off their test status. They would even lose to IreLand...

Had Bangladesh lost, they would have faced expulsion many times over.

I am reliably informed that the Bangladeshi's surprised themselves.

Som said...

Satrajit, I'm afraid they would lose to themselves. tsk...tsk...tsk

Som said...

NC, they are pro at facing expulsion. Everytime they lose, you hear it and still they are loitering around.

Som said...

Ottayan, being a Bengali, I know the exact word they have said after winning. It's KHAICHHE RE...a Bengali version of Oh My Gosh.
