Well done to all in­volved

The Cricket Paper - - COMMENT & VIEWS -

It was only a few months ago that the tour of Bangladesh was in doubt due to se­cu­rity fears. I would there­fore like to pass on my grat­i­tude to all con­cerned who have en­sured the series has gone ahead.

Following a keenly fought one day series, con­grat­u­la­tions are due to both teams for a ter­rific first Test match.

An ex­cit­ing pitch, spin­ners open­ing the bowl­ing, re­verse swing, four scores over 200 and the theatre of 26 DRS mo­ments high­lighted the fascinating num­ber of vari­ables that only test cricket com­mands.

Such a shame that the crowd was so small and it is only a two match series.The cor­po­rate crowd might not like it, but the four and a bit days in Chit­tagong high­lighted that Test match cricket still rules.
