Off to a flyer

This is a very impressive start by the Bangladesh opening attack. I've never seen Mortaza bowl before (at least, I don't think so) and frankly, if he gets his act together with respect to wides and no-balls, I think he'll be a handful on helpful wickets. He has already taken care of both Sehwag and Uthappa - both to bad shots, with Sehwag's being particularly horrendous. I'm not sure what lies ahead for Viru but really, time is running out for him. With Ganguly and Tendulkar scratching around on a wicket with a bit of grass, bounce and carry, this could be a very interesting match. And to think India won the toss and elected to bat; still a good decision but the batting strategy is going to need to be a little different.
