Looks like a dustbowl. The team batting last is doomed.

I think the world record is 25 not out or something isn’t it? I want to say New Zealand?

It was 26 and don't you dare try to take a single run off my boys!

This was our worst hour in recent times. Which is the worst of this century.

Safrica sure did like to make the first test interesting in those days. :cool:

Didn’t Azharuddin or someone have a century-laden first few test matches when he started?

Bangladesh lost the ODI tournament in final, Test series 0-1 and T20I series 0-2.

Absence of Shakib and recent unnecessary firing of Haturusinghe cost them a lot.
