Go for it

Bangladesh will have a hard time in the Super Eights. But they will emerge a better team for it. And check out these words to mark the significance of their win over Bermuda, which propelled them into that stage:
When the rain had drizzled down in the afternoon, Shuvro had wondered if this was destiny. "The 25th of March is the darkest day in our history, when the Pakistan Army invaded in 1971. I felt maybe it is nature's way of saying this great day should not fall on March 25, it should fall on the next day, which is our Independence Day." Victory did come on March 25 - Caribbean time. A dozen time zones ahead in Bangladesh the clock had long since ticked, and dawn was about to break on the country's Independence Day.
