Bangladesh reach historic Asia final

Bangladesh reach historic Asia final

Sri Lanka 232 (49.5 ov)

Bangladesh 212/5 (37.1/40 ov, target 212)

Bangladesh won by 5 wickets (with 17 balls remaining) (D/L method)

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina stands up and applauds, Nasir Hossain screams in delight, Shakib Al Hasan is the first to run out of the dressing room. The team are taking a lap of the Shere Bangla, Bangladesh flags waving proudly all around. They have taken out both the World Cup 2011 finalists and came close to beating former ODI world champions Pakistan. Massive moment for Bangladesh. No one gave them a chance in the lead-up to this tournament. They have made a mess of all predictions. At 135 for 5, the Bangladesh of old would have folded. Not this Bangladesh team though. They did it in their frenetic way at the top, but look no further than Nasir Hossain for one of the coolest young heads going around.

Coming on the back of a gruelling tri-series in Australia, Sri Lanka have looked flat, jaded and out of sorts.

Shenbagaraja: “Victory for bangladesh against any team is no longer an upset!!!”
