The ‘Streak’ of magic that Bangladesh miss

746 wickets as against 455 in International cricket. That is the number of wickets that separates Zimbabwe's Heath Streak from former Windies seamer, Courtney Walsh. In fact, Streak's tally does not even match up to Walsh's Test scalps, which...

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjsV02fnFOk&feature=youtu.be Bangladesh won the toss and decided to field first but South Africa batsmen mauled the bowlers in a ruthless manner. Yet again, the Bangladeshi bowlers let them down. Yet another defeat for the visitors on this tour. Deep Dasgupta...

Bangladesh need to play five specialist bowlers in the lineup

In an era, where batsmen dominate the game, the margin of error for the bowling unit has decreased drastically. With king-sized bats, shorter outfields, two new balls and field restrictions coming into play, run-scoring has become easy, which made...

Deep’s Corner: Bangladesh botched at Kimberley

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhMQiTkdWGc&feature=youtu.be Things are not going well for the Tigers in South Africa. It was expected, they would bounce back in three-match one-day series, but in the first ODI the Tigers were humiliated in a disgraceful manner. Deep Dasgupta gives his...

Irresistible Quinton de Kock – Hashim Amla challenging best in business

Seldom do teams find two openers who strike such a chord as Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock. West Indies’ Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes were the first of their kind in One Day Internationals. Sri Lanka once had...

Mediocre Bangladesh at Diamond Oval

Just before the start of first one-day international (ODI) between South Africa and Bangladesh at Kimberley, out of 12 ODI matches, only 3 were won by teams who batted first. Kimberley track favours the batsmen a lot and especially...

Bangladesh’s top 4 need to focus on conversions

Deep’s Corner: Bangladesh need to regroup soon

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNKZ4F2zMQg&feature=youtu.be Bangladesh capitulated within one and a half session at Bloemfontein. Surely, it was a disgraceful defeat. But this is not the end of the roads for the Tigers. They can still come back on track and for which,...

Bangladesh should look beyond ‘captain’ Mushfiqur Rahim

They say an ideal captain on a cricket field always leads by example. The entire team always looks towards the skipper for motivation. If a captain can raise the bar higher by giving his best on the field, the...

Bangladesh Cricket Board needs to take constructive steps

Kagiso Rabada shines yet again

Mushfiqur Rahim

Mushfiqur Rahim’s statements at press conference lacked maturity and logic

After a tiring first day of first Test at Potchefstroom, it was Sabbir Rahman, who appeared in front of the press and gave some illogical statement in favour Mushfiqur Rahim’s decision to bowl first. Bangladesh suffered badly due to...

Deep’s Corner: A frustrating day for Bangladesh

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylDFnA0cUn0&feature=youtu.be The South African batsmen scored runs easily to end the day in a commendable fashion. Mushfiqur Rahim committed the same mistake at the toss and his poor captaincy helped the home team a lot to roast the bowlers’...
