Bangladesh beats New Zealand

In a warm up match before the world cup Bangladesh causes the first upset beating New Zealand in a thriller. Pacer Mashrafe Mortaza was the star with all round performance. Congrats Tigers. Some headlines in international media:

* Mortaza inspires upset.

* Mortaza on fire for Bangladesh.

* Bangladesh stun kiwis in Barbados.

* Bangladesh shock Black Caps.

* Bangladesh embarrass Black Caps.

Just wondering what the headlines of the Bangladeshi media will be.

No TV coverage was available today. Otherwise you could have heard the roar of the fans from Bangladesh. Cricinfo had a lousy coverage and there were only 5-6 updates of the whole match. We need to find new source of live coverage.

Its pathetic to see the use of the minnow term for Bangladesh by some Journalists. They definitely need to read the assessment of Bangladesh cricket by Shawn Williams, the A team coach.

No I don't think its a cunning plan by NZ to lose as mentioned in the Radio New Zealand News. Thats a hilarious claim.
