Bangladesh has witnessed some memorable victories in ODI cricket but nothing compares to today’s victory against India in World Cup Cricket 2007. It is the greatest and most memorable victory because from the first over of the match, Bangladesh dominated India. It was a one sided match and India failed to offer any sort of resistance against Bangladesh. Bangladeshi players were always in control. In the end, Bangladesh won by 5 wickets.
Here is some dialogues from TV room of Govind Bhawan, IIT Roorkee during the game:
Most of this part is in Hindi, so sorry non-Hindi folks.
"Bangladesh ne bekar bowling ki... even Sehwag was able to score 2 runs"
( at Sehwag's dismissal)
"Indians haaton main makhhan laga kar aaye hain kya ???"
(when dhoni droppped the catch)
"inko bolo ki 50 overs ka match hai...itni jaldi over mat karo .. vaise bhi aaj night out maarni hai"
(when zaheer gave around 15 runs in some over)
"Ganguly hamesha team se alag rehta hai... sabke saath mill kar nahin chalta"
(when Ganguly completed his 50)
"arey ek no-ball de kar gam khatam kar .. sona hai"
(when there were few dot balls before bangladesh scored that last run!)
"lagta hai India-Pakistan ek hi flight se waapas aayenge!"
(after Ireland defeated pakistan)
India might have a more celebrated top order but it was the Bangladesh middle order and fast bowling attack that was clearly better on the day.
Rahul Dravid : We didn't get enough runs on the board. I thought 240 would have been a good score but the wicket surprised us. Their bowlers kept it really tight and they didn't let us get away. We know we've got to win two games now. We've got our backs to the wall and have got to fight pretty hard.
Let's wish good luck to Team India for their remaining matches!
