The game of cricket has a way of making heroes out of players in the most unlikely of ways. Batsmen end up winning games with their bowling and vice versa. On Saturday, New Zealand pulled off the most unlikeliest of ODI wins when they recovered from 140 for 8 to chase down 209.
Bangladesh who lost the First Test by an innings and 184 runs have axed former Skipper Mohammad Ashraful for the second and final Test at Mirpur. Ashraful had a dismal game in the first Test at Chittagong where he came up with scores of 1 and 0.
