To me the revelation in this tournament from BCCI perspective has been Washington Sundar and Vijay Shankar.

Too much pressure on Thakur as other bowlers like Unadkat and Siraj have been useless.

This is what happens when you play with B and C grade players.The others have to outperform.

Sundar has been great.

The boy, Washington is an intelligent bowler. I am interested to watch him to bowl in ODI or Test.

It is true that Bangladeshi batters are not that qualified to test a bowler's ability but in T20 format batters do not get enough time to settle. Specially while chasing of 175+ run in 20 overs. Washington has taken the advantage of that and bowled with enough thinking.

What he will do in the format where batters also get chance to think?

Washington Sundar and Vijay Shankar have been impressive with the ball. It is interesting to note that their batting has not been required even once- and that is supposed to be their stronger suit. :)

Coming to Siraj, I must say that he has been very lucky to play three T20 international matches without showing any proof that he belongs to this level. People like him and Unadkat should not be allowed to come anywhere close to an international team after this tournament.

Washington Sundar’s father reveals origin of RPS spinner’s name

Washington Sundar has been one of the finds of the season for Rising Pune Supergiant in the tenth edition of IPL. Coming in place of injured Ravichandran Ashwin, it was never going to be easy for the off-spinner. But, with eight wickets from 10 games and with an economy of 6.61, the 17-year-old has taken IPL 2017 by storm.

However, the mystery behind his first name was solved when his father finally reveled the reason behind his son’s name. “I am a Hindu and come from a very humble family. Two streets away from my home in Triplicane lived an ex-army man called P.D. Washington. He was extremely fond of cricket and would come to watch us play at the Marina ground. He took a liking for my game,” Sundar said in an interaction with The Hindu.

“I was poor and he would buy uniform for me, pay my school fee, get me books, take me to the ground in his cycle and constantly encourage me,” Sundar added.

Sundar, who himself was a cricketer and had made it to the Ranji team probables, said that to him the former army officer was everything. And he was the happiest man when he managed to impress selectors.

Sundar’s first son was born a few months later after Washington passed away.

“My wife had a difficult delivery. But the baby survived. As per the Hindu custom, I whispered a God’s name, ‘Srinivasan,’ in his ear. But I decided to name him Washington in memory of the man who had done so much for me. Had I had a second son, I would have called him Washington Jr,” he concluded.

Washington was exceptional during Pune’s match against two-times IPL champions Mumbai Indians where he picked up three wickets, which eventually helped the Supergiant’s make it into their maiden IPL final.

SL now 41/5 after 8.1.
Mehidy Hasan also gets into the action.

The Fizz still seems to be a force to reckon with. Good for him.
Such matches are usually heart-breaking because I don't want either side to lose.

I remember Mahmudullah doing this sort of thing before.
You're never sure of the result as long as he is at the crease.

Having said that, that was poor bowling by Udana.

Shakibul Hassan's poor sportsmanship where he tried to call his players back with four balls to go should get heavily punished by match referee. I have not seen this kind of boorish behavior in an international match for many decades.

Ugly scenes mar Bangladesh's dramatic win

15 Mar, 2018
Andrew Fidel
Mahmudullah, sublimely poised while chaos roiled around him, hoisted an Isuru Udana ball over the square leg boundary when six runs were required off the last two balls, propelling Bangladesh to victory in scintillating fashion. It is difficult to overstate the importance of his innings, though the numbers - 43 off 18 balls - bear witness to its quality. Incensed by several mistakes from his team-mates, maintaining his focus even through an ugly final over in which a Bangladesh sub was given a shove by a Sri Lanka player and Shakib Al Hasan seemed intent on bringing his batsmen off the field, Mahmudullah completed the chase of 160 with No. 10 batsman Rubel Hossain at the other end.

A year's worth of nerves and acrimony was packed into the final over. Tension between these teams had been high throughout the tournament, owing partly to the "nagin" [cobra] dance that they had mockingly traded with each other, a childish saga that had begun during Sri Lanka's tour of Bangladesh. But it was upon the umpires' failure to call the second delivery of that over a no-ball for height (it was the second bouncer of the over, the first having been a dot ball to Mustafizur Rahman), that the drama really sparked off. Mahmudullah was in the umpires' faces, imploring them to award a no-ball that would make the requirement 11 off five balls with a free-hit to boot, instead of 12 off 4. Mustafizur, meanwhile, was run out attempting a bye at the other end.

While Mahmudullah was arguing with the umpires, a fracas had boiled over elsewhere. A Bangladesh substitute who had come on to the field with drinks had become embroiled in an argument with the Sri Lanka players. It was when one of the Sri Lanka fielders gave the sub a push - not an almighty shove, but not a gentle prod either - that the Bangladesh dressing room became truly incensed. In a flash, Shakib came down the stairs and to the boundary, where after after speaking animatedly with the fourth umpire, he summoned Mahmudullah and Rubel off the field.

In the end, after things had seemed to settle slightly, Mahmudullah carved a four over cover the first ball after resumption, then hit two to deep midwicket and gloriously lifted that leg-side six, with Udana having overpitched. His euphoric team-mates charged the field to embrace him, dusted off a group version of the nagin dance, and were celebrating when another unseemly altercation ensued. This time Kusal Mendis was yelling at the Bangladesh players and gesturing animatedly, while Tamim Iqbal put an arm around his shoulder and attempted to calm him down. In a month in which player behaviour has been under the microscope, all this made for especially disagreeable viewing.

Last ball six in a final does not happen all that often. That way it is the first after Miandad's last ball six, I think.

I am happy that Dinesh Karthik finally gets the attention and recognition that he deserves. All these years he was in and out of the BCCI team, unable to cement his place. People (including me) wondered why he always managed to find his way into the team after failing to capitalise during his earlier comebacks.

It was in the first match of this tournament (where BCCI lost to Sri Lanka ) that I first noticed his batting abilities. In this match, the overhyped Pant, who was sent two down to bat was struggling to score runs despite slashing his bat hard at every delivery, Karthik came in to bat only in the last over and he immediately started to find boundaries and runs without fuss. It was then that I realised that he was in a different league as a batsman. I in fact mentioned this in this thread itself. Here is what I mentioned in this thread at that time:
What does Pant do ? Now he has been given opportunity in T20 against three weak teams viz West Indies, Sri Lanka and now Bangladesh. He has failed to impress as a batsman despite so many opportunities in non pressure situations. In fact, looking him bat makes me realise that Dinesh Karthik, the much maligned batsman is a vastly superior batsman compared to Pant.


I am happy that Dinesh Karthik , with his dramatic 8 ball 29, including a last ball six caught the imagination of cricketing public. He did something which even MSD, nicknamed the finisher, would struggle to achieve in closing stages of an innings now a days. I am very happy for Karthik. Hopefully now he will be a permanent member of BCCI T20 and ODI teams.

Yeah, but when was that ? Memory does not serve me right.

Maybe few other instances as well. Javed Miandad comes as an instant recall, because it was a last ball six to win the match.

Plunkett's six was to tie the game, not win the match.

New Delhi: Dinesh Karthik's last ball six off Soumya Sarkar sealed the win for the India in the Nidahas Trophy final. India were in a tricky position when Karthik came into bat, as the team needed 35 runs from just two overs. The keeper-batsman held his nerve, and probably played the most crucial knock of his career.

This victory will certainly go down as one of the most memorable finishes to a game of cricket. In the past too, there have been instances when players have taken their side home, by hitting a six on the last ball of the match. Cricketnext takes a look at some of these matches:

1. Javed Miandad vs Chetan Sharma (India vs Pakistan, Sharjah, 1986)

The bitter memories of Miandad hitting Chetan Sharma for a six on the last ball of the match in Austral-Asia Cup final are still fresh in fans' minds. Requiring four runs in one ball, Sharma bowled a low full-toss to Miandad, that the latter bludgeoned away to the boundary. The Pakistani batsman scored 116 no in the match. Batting first, India had set Pakistan a target of 246 runs.

2. Chamara Kapugedera vs Ashish Nehra (India vs Sri Lanka, Gros Islet, 2010)

Chasing a target of 164 runs in a World T20I encounter, Sri Lanka needed three runs off the final ball, to register a win against India.It was a heartbreak for the fans back home as Kapugedera hit Nehra for a six on the final ball of the match. After the loss, India was ousted from the tournament too.

3. Lance Klusner vs Dion Nash (New Zealand vs South Africa, Napier, 1999)

One of the most destructive batsman in the limited overs format, the match was never over till the time Klusner was on the crease. The Proteas needed 11 runs from the final over, and it came down to four runs on the last ball. Klusner hit Nash for a big six to level the ODI series 2-2.

4. Brendan Taylor vs Mashrafe Mortaza (Zimbabwe vs Bangladesh, Harare, 2006)

In a clash of the miinows, Zimbabwe came out on top, when Brendan Taylor hit Mortaza for six on the last ball. Chasing a target of 237 runs, Zimbabwe needed 17 runs from the final over. The equation had come down to five runs from one ball, and Taylor did not disappoint. The win helped Zimbabwe level the series 1-1.

5. Ryan McLaren vs James Franklin (South Africa vs New Zealand, Potchefstroom, 2013)

This was a match to remember as Proteas were chasing 261 runs in the 3rd ODI. Needing just three runs of the final delivery, McLaren smacked Franklin out of the park, that helped his team avoid a whitewash on home soil. Apart from McLaren's last ball heroics, skipper Graeme Smith scored a brilliant 116 runs that was instrumental in their win.

So Last ball six in a tournament final has been hit only by Miandad and Karthik.
