Bangladesh is a young side.

^this statement bothers me to no end. Seniors are in their prime, some juniors are around 25+

Let's see now...I'll split em into ones I like, and ones I don't

I like these
Catches win matches
Drop catches lose matches
Dangerous player
Wily customer
It's not over till it's over

Don't like these
That went for miles! (Not bad, but so overused that it's become dull)
That's huge! ( you can be more descriptive)
Straight as an arrow ( find a better a metaphor)
Cool as a cucumber (find things cooler than a fruit)
What a shot/ball/catch ( you can do better)

When a repeat bilateral clash happens after a while, the team who lost the previous encounter is asked if they will be playing to get revenge, and the captain says. "It is not about revenge. This is simply another match, and we play to win every match."

Which is a LIE. Revenge definitely remains in the mind.

Chawdhury Zafrullah Sharafat is not my cup of tea. Anything comes out of his mouth....I don't hear it. Mute button comes to my rescue.
