'BANGLADESH WIN' IN THE MEDIA
I am collating here some of the interesting media coverages on the victory of Bangladesh over Australia.
* The Scotsman - UK:
"It is by far the best win in Bangladesh history, eclipsing the one-day defeats of India and Pakistan, the latter back in the 1999 World Cup."
* The Independent -UK:
"If anything stood out about Bangladesh's exhibition, it was the way they held their nerve, as though they sensed destiny was at hand. In the streets of Chittagong they were doubtless delirious last night; in Sydney they were wondering if Australia could bat, bowl or field."
* The Observer UK:
"The surprise in the success of the chase should lie not in Australia's failure to defend a total twice in four days but in the mature and disciplined fashion in which Bangladesh pursued."
* Rick Eyre collates some in his blog.
* Rabeed Imam of the Daily Star writes an wonderful Article "Earning the world's respect". He writes:
"Too many people judge Bangladesh on pre-conceived, often misinformed, ideas without digging a little deeper. Perhaps that also works in Bangladesh's favour as opposing teams are not remotely aware of the sting they possess. With the conquest of Australia, Bangladesh have won five out of their last nine one-day internationals and the prey list include both finalists of the 2003 World Cup.
Each of those five victories have been achieved through clinical execution of the term professionalism, and look no further than the Cardiff epic for confirmation of that."
Update: Australian PM congratulates Bangladesh
