While we have been busy criticizing the senior teams for their performance (or for the lack of it), we should also take a moment and acknowledge and admire players like :
- RN ten Doeschate -Netherlands for his five wicket haul against India
- Leverock whose figures of 10-0-32-2 against England stood out for Bermuda
- Dave Langford-Smith and Trent Johnston of Ireland for almost bringing the World No 1's to their knees.
Go on guys, play - play as you have nothing to lose...play just for the love of the game
We will sit back, take a note, enjoy your performances and applaud too...
Update (6 March 2007) Bangladesh beat a full strength side of NZ by 2 wickets!!! Bravo !
