Tragic Self Destruction

by Wasim Ahmed on June 9, 2013

We expressed our anger at his impulsiveness but in the very next day we supported him again in the hope that he will not let us down. It happened again and again, we had to go through sleepless nights, we forgave him as he was our first cricketing icon. By far Ashraful was the most [...]

Zimbabwe horror continues

by Wasim Ahmed on May 17, 2013

Though Bangladesh ended their miserable Zimbabwe tour on a winning note still there remains many unsolved questions. Zimbabwe beat Bangladesh in the first test and won the ODI series with their limited resources. It was a pain to see Brendon Taylor becoming so unconquerable in the first test. If it was a pain, Vusi Muzi [...]

Shahadat Hossain: A retarded pace bowler

by Wasim Ahmed on May 17, 2013

The severe scarcity of quality pace bowlers in Bangladesh cricket is evident from the fact that someone like Shahadat Hossain is getting repetitive opportunities in the team despite his indifferent performance in the middle. The trouble is that he is not learning from his mistakes rather making the identical blunder time and again. For an [...]

A test win!

by Wasim Ahmed on May 1, 2013

To be exact it’s a test win for Bangladesh after 3 years and 9 months! Though it’s against a less fancied Zimbabwe team, still it gives a massive respite to everyone. Specially after the colossal indignity in the first test, it was a sort of must win match for the tigers. Bangladesh do exactly what [...]

This has to be one of the greatest embarrassments in our cricketing history. A huge defeat against problem-stricken Zimbabwe was never expected from tigers at the start of the series. But lack of planning, incapacity to assess the pitch and condition, powerlessness to adjust with the condition and last but not the least lack of [...]

Ashraful reborn

by Wasim Ahmed 5 April 2013

Undeniably Mohammad Ashraful can instigate more public sentiments than any other Bangladeshi player. From the start of his career he was the centre of attraction of the cricket lovers in Bangladesh until 2010. Afterwards his continuous downfall turned the spectators away from him and ultimately he became an outcast in Bangladesh team. After playing for [...]

by Wasim Ahmed 10 January 2013

It is not easy to overlook someone who is scoring so many runs. Yes, I am talking about Marshall Ayub whose runs spree continues as he smashed another double hundred in the Bangladesh Cricket League.

BPL Auction: Merry time for young tigers

by Wasim Ahmed 21 December 2012

This time no foreign player but Shakib Al Hasan was the centre of attraction in the auction for BPL-2 as he attracts the highest money in a six way battle for him. He draws a price tag of mammoth $365,000. But more surprising was the huge interest on the four debutants of the recent series [...]

Tigers made us proud

by Wasim Ahmed 16 December 2012

It was a distant dream before the start of the One day series. It became more unrealistic when Shakib was ruled out of the series because of injury. There was every chance of another whitewash considering the overwhelming reputations of some of the players of this West Indies side. But Bangladesh had other ideas, they were [...]

Disappointed Windies ends on a winning note

by Wasim Ahmed 11 December 2012

  A superb unbeaten 85 by Marlon Samuels, and disciplined bowling by the spinners gave West Indies an 18-run victory over Bangladesh in the only T20 International at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday. The win came as a balm for the tourists in their last international match of the year after earlier having [...]
