Bangladesh on fire again!!

I was one of the pessimistic people about Bangladesh's performance in the super eight stage of ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. First two matches of Bangladesh against Australia and NZ made my belief stronger. But after watching yesterday's game against South Africa I am now convinced that I should never right Bangladesh off before the game. They always seem to bounce back from no where.
Ashraful was in his majestic best, Tamim and Aftab's batting showed pure arrogance, and the mighty South Africans lost their way. South Africans not only lost the game, but they lost the number one spot in the world ranking too. Not to mention that the super eights stage is wide open now for all the teams. I am looking forward to see Bangladesh's performance in the next 3 games.
