What a Day !!!

Bangladesh got India all out for 191!!!

And if this is not enough, Ireland got Pakistan all out for a paltry 132!!!

What a day for World Cricket, I am loving it!

Extremely pathetic batting display by India and Pakistan, but at the same time, some amazing bowling by Mortaza for B'desh (4 wickets) and Botha for Ireland. Botha, in particular had outstanding figures of 8-4-5-2!!!

And these performances will go some length the way cricket is played worldwide.

To top this all, Bangladesh are sitting pretty against India by being 109/3 (thanks to a wonderful battind display by 17 years old Tamim Iqbal who hit a 51 ball 50), while Pakistan are fighting it out and have already taken 2 wickets for 26 runs so far. If Pakistan lose this one, they will most certainly be eliminated from the WC!!!

Let us wait for the results as it is never really over till the fat lady sings!

Mogambo Khush Hua!
