World Cup Crickte 2007: Will Shahriar Nafees be a star and will win the World cup?

Shahriar Nafees is the opener of Bangladesh Cricket Team. In the last three-nation series at the Antigua Recreation Ground has showed a good performance.

SUN Printing & Publishing reported about the performance of Bangladesh team in the last three-nation series at the Antigua.

Bermuda’s preparations for this Tri-Series tournament suffered a setback last week when they slipped to defeat against lowly Antigua & Barbuda in a warm-up game, but this time they did at least make a fist of their batting performance, winning the toss and posting a total of 205 for eight, thanks to solid contributions all down the order but particularly from the tail, as they recovered from a shaky 83 for five.

Lionel Cann top-scored with 33 from number seven, while three other batsmen also exceeded 30, among them Saleem Mukuddem, whose 32 came to an end when he was run-out by a combination of Mohammad Rafique and the wicketkeeper, Mushfiqur Rahim.

Bangladesh’s bowlers were not significantly stretched although Tapash Baisya came in for a bit of tap with the new ball, conceding his runs at 5.3 an over.

The pick of the bowlers, as so often, was Rafique, whose 10 overs went for 38 runs, and resulted in the wickets of David Hemp and the Captain, Irvine Romaine, for a duck.

So we can hope that Bangladesh is going to do well in the next world cup.
