Wishesh wishes the Bangladesh team a grand success, as today goes down the cricketing history of the nation.
Bangladesh that embarked on the Cricket spaceship in 1999, have till date not made an impressive performance befitting its precedence of almost a decade and a half history. But today the small nation has had a turn around after beating India and Sri Lanka in the leagues. They are embarking on their `dream come true’ endeavor. Wishesh wishes the Bangladesh team a grand success, as today goes down the cricketing history of the nation as the golden day. With the top two teams Sri Lanka and India out of the tournament, Bangladesh takes on Pakistan in the Asia Cup final held in the Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka. Mirpur will be remembered for ever, if the national team makes it to the big league today. In either case this is the first ever final that the team has entered in its long existence.
Bangladesh, once a team considered for playing practice matches sent warning signals in this tournament. Their tremendous make over by beating the top two teams Sri Lanka and India has given the necessary impetus for an enthralling victory in the final. The only hitch for the team was they played well against their present opponents in the leagues but fail to win the match. Pakistan won the home team in the leagues. And if things go by the pundit’s comments, then Bangladesh will avenge their defeat today. `The sense of anticipation for this game in enormous and the price of tickets in the black market have even shot up to Tk 50,000,’ says Times. This is a big day for Bangladesh, at Mirpur. With no expectations Indians and the Lankans watch the match as mere spectators. An interesting Tie on the cards and not to miss match for cricket fans on the anvil. (With inputs from internet- AarKay)
