    Bangladesh did well in their last test against India. I would like to see them take a game off us in the ODI series.

    Nice performance by Shakib.

    36 with the bat and 4/33 from 10 overs with the ball.

    about time to be honest, but I think we expected more... Vetorri has been better

    Could have had two centuries for the match if not for cheating merkin McCullum.

    Nice direct hit run-out too.

    If Bangladesh had the Allan Border medal it would be called the Shakib Al Hasan medal anyway lol.

    What a performance from the man yesterday. This comes after guiding Worcestershire back into division 1 of the county championship.

    I was very tempted to put Shakib in my CricInfo alltime World XI.

    Ive lost some sleep leaving him out tbh..

    I find your man-lub for him disconcerting, given your (correct) criticisms of Vetorri...

    He's a decent cricketer, but not sure I see much beyond that
