N ovember 10, 2000, got the first day of Bangladesh’s maiden examination, against India at Bangabandhu National ground in Dhaka. It has been a first furthermore for Sourav Ganguly, who was leading Republic of india in an examination for the first time. In India, the feeling ended up being combined since the organization ended up being rising within the shadow of match-fixing and starting the latest section, but in Bangladesh it actually was all very joyful.
Aminul Islam, Bangladesh batsman: it had been a fantastic occasion. We’d very little idea on this globe. We knew about ODI cricket, so a playing XI for us meant using two speedy bowlers, three spinners, one wicketkeeper and five batsmen. All of us achieved Dhaka just a couple weeks vendor try complement. There was only had a poor trip of Africa, where we had been avoided earlier from your ICC Knockout contest in Nairobi.
The Indians are self-confident, highlighting on complacent.
Sunil Joshi, Indian spinner: I would personallyn’t say we had been very serious with regards to the Test fit, but we’d a few days of training – 2 days, if I don’t forget correctly – in Calcutta [now Kolkata] before you leave for Dhaka.
