Whilst working at home this morning, I had to give my 14 month old son his breakfast. Faced with a choice of 'Walter and Dude' on Baby TV or the Bangladesh-India test, I opted for the latter.
My son was so hungry, he wouldn't have cared if I had opted for 'Vampire Killers From Hell' or other such nonsense.
Anyway when we tuned into the action from Chittagong all seemed predictable.
Despite bowling India out for 243, Bangladesh were struggling at 120/6 with all thier big guns gone - even if their big guns are actually rather small pistols.
The wonderfully named Mahmudallah and wicket keeper Mushfiqur Rahim were batting. And Sreesanth and Amit Mishra were bowling a lot of no balls and some rubbish.
The two Bangladeshi lads eagerly tucked in and also accumulated steadily against the brilliant Zaheer and the erratic Ishant, and helped their side to close in on the Indian 1st innings score.
Although the partnership of 108 was ended when Rahim went for a careless slog off Mishra it did help Bangladesh to a total of 242 and put their side very much in the ball game with two days to play.
No doubt the powerful Indian batting line-up will pull away but along with the excellent Shakib, it would appear that Bangladesh are at last becoming more competitive.
Kind of makes you ask why England have decided it is a good idea to rest their skipper and appoint Captain Cook for their tour of Bangladesh in February and March.
We all know what fate befell the last Captain Cook.
Speaking of eating, Alexander (my son) scoffed all of his porridge up staring avidly at the cricket, which is doubly good!
