Triumphant Tigers

Triumphant Tigers

What began with dismal results and ignominious defeats in tests matches, ended on a high note as Bangladesh won both the ODI and the T20 series in emphatic fashion. Congratulations, tigers! The West Indies tour is at the same time lackluster plus a landmark one because when the team began the test matches, they looked lackadaisical, often a bit disorientated. However, in sport nothing is more spectacular than rising from the depth of defeat to the pinnacle of victory. And, in one tour, we saw it all – dejection transform into delirium as the team has  put behind some miserable memories from the test to give us two back to back victories, in ODI’s and T20 meets on foreign soil.

Bangladesh cricket has progressed a lot and, on home soil, the tigers can be a formidable foe, capable of humbling any team, but this feat has to be replicated overseas too if tigers want to be the best in the world. The recent victory is also a vindication for some of the players who were struggling for a period. Shakib, Tamim Mushfiqur, Mashrafe, Liton played superbly while the entire team maintained a consistency in the last six matches.

However, cricket is also about enduring the original version of the game – the test match, in which tigers have often struggled to cope. This is where some attention is needed, building patience and the resolution to hang in there, controlling the impulses to go for glory. But at this moment, the anguish of faltering in the Test is forgotten since we have a marvelous T20 series win to celebrate. Bangladesh lost a series of the shortest format of the game against Afghanistan just a few months ago which raised questions about their ability to sustain under pressure.

With the win in the Caribbean, the doubt is gone. Like many other teams that face unlucky periods, Bangladesh also went through a low time. Let’s hope this current triumph in the West Indies will provide the momentum for the team in the World Cup next year. No team can win all the time and defeat sometimes is better than a victory because it works to unite players, dissolve differences and get rid of complacency.

The country and fans always want the team to win but let’s also not forget when players take the field they never want to leave with a defeat. Safe journey back home for the tigers who have made the Caribbean cake fabulously sweet after a bitter start.
