Sohag and Mominul hope for the future

Update : 13 Oct 2013, 05:31 PM

We would like to congratulate Mominul Haque and Sohag Gazi on their outstanding performances.

They both have been stars of the show with Sohag Gazi being the first cricketer in history to have scored a ton and taken a hat-trick in the same test. This is an unprecedented event in the long history of test cricket. Gazi is the first inductee to this hall of fame and he will remain there as long as Test cricket will be played. Understandably, he was the man of the match.

Mominul’s maiden total of 181 was also very mature and was a display of attacking batting under pressure. He was the main reason why Bangladesh was able to surpass a substantial first innings target of 469. Unlike many occasions in the past, when the batsmen have failed to rise up to the occasion, he refused to crumble and stood firm while maintaining a healthy scoring rate. In any other game, he would have had a strong case for the man of the match award.

The rest of the team did a fine job, and the overall performance was credible, if not spectacular. In a drawn match that Bangladesh could have won, these two young men are positives to take for Bangladeshi cricket fans, and it is performances such as these that make our cricket so special for us.

We hope that the team will build on this performance and we will emerge victorious in our home series.
