good on em!

an amazing stat..

"The challenge that Nafees relished more than any other was the one presented by a legspinner named Shane Warne: Warne bowled 56 deliveries to him, and got smashed for 67, including ten hits which found their way to the fence. If Warne doesn't bowl again in this innings, this will be - by far - his most expensive figures in an innings - never before has he bowled more than ten overs and finished with an economy rate of greater than five."

At stumps it is 6/145.

Who's up for some conspiracy theories? :D

This is great for cricket, good test to watch, but how do the Bangladeshi's go from having won just one test in 34 games or whatever (against a second string Zimbabwe side) to absolutely dominating the Aussies and being on the cusp of a famous victory. These things can't happen overnight can they?

This is even better than the ODI, it would be too good to be true if they finished the job off :D

They're definitely a chance but with Gilchrist and Lee at the crease you cense they may be in for a long stand. Gilchrist is 51 not out and is due a big score, Lee's batting has improved to the point where some people nearly consider him an all rounder. They're around 80 runs from the follow on, even if they don't reach that, and assuming Bangladesh enforce the follow on the Aussies might learn from their mistakes in the second innings.

its gonna be real tough tho for australia to come back from here. They have their tales up now. Gilly/Lee partnership is the vital point of this match,got a feeling gilly will pull out somthing special.

after the shitty SA series this is fantastic!
