Shakib al Hasan dropped

The eagle-eyed among you will notice that we're spelling our guy's name differently. That's because it changed on Cricinfo and we consider Cricinfo to be as close to a cricketing names dictionary as there is.

On the other hand, dictionaries don't tend to change their mind about spellings every once in a while. Consistency of spelling is something of a hallmark of the dictionary. Maybe we should look elsewhere.

However you spell it, Shakib al Hasan has been dropped from the Bangladesh team. As Miriam pointed out in her match report, he top-scored in the first Test against Sri Lanka, albeit with a less-than-modest 16.

Well how Bangladesh will be pining for his double-figure-scoring ability now. They've just been bowled out for 62 - a score that begs to be classed as paltry, but is actually slightly too low for that label.

Lasith Malinga took 4-25 and His Geniusness, Lord Muttiahford of Muralitharanshire took 4-14.

I like to think that Shakib watched this morning's shocker of a session from his sofa in his pyjamas with a blanky, a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows, and a jumbo punnet of popcorn, cackling all the while, with "Who's sorry now" playing on repeat in the background. I'm sure he's far too nice to do that though.
