Hope is something we all have to have at this stage. Great to see both openers surviving and coping well with the transition from T20 mode to Test. Yes, there is always a light at the other end. Otherwise it would have been a cave.
I personally do not want to imagine Bd national team with Ash, Alok, Aftab any more. The other "A" needs to do more in domestic league, get his rear back to the ground, then may be he can carry the drinks. I would lick my wounds with the Riyads, Naeems. Limited players but gives 110%. The time for potential is over. Perform and claim your spot. Same with NI.
I have already been "nara" once. I do not want to visit bel tola again.
