Dipendra Singh Airee‘s throw from the deep-extra cover boundary struck the stumps on the full, running Dale Phillips out and ending New Zealand’s chase against Nepal. In the previous over, Airee had swung the match for Nepal, dismissing Nigel Smith and Talor Scott. Near the boundary line, where the reserves were standing, Nepal manager Sudeep Sharma was ecstatic. Sudeep was elated that Airee, Nepal’s finisher with the bat and ball, had closed the match out with his fielding. “Airee is a naturally talented, fit and athletic player. He is an attacking batsman who gives us cameos at No 5 or 6 and bowls good yorkers in the death overs,” he said. “Today he threw down the stumps with a direct hit from the sweeper cover boundary, to finish the game.”

How Hathuru changed the Bangladeshi Fortunes

August 3, 2015

Mohammad Isam, in ESPNcricinfo.com, 3 August 2015, where the title is  “Biggest thing for me is the change in players’ mindset – Hathurusingha”

With ODI series wins against Pakistan, India and South Africa in 2015, Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha looks at the changes that are helping the side move forward. Following his appointment in May 2014, Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha had a crucial role overseeing the side’s World Cup campaign and three successful home series thereafter. On the final day of the second Test against South Africa, which was abandoned due to a wet outfield, Hathurusingha spoke to ESPNcricinfo about the side’s results in the last seven months, the change in the team’s mindset, how he spotted Soumya Sarkar and his future plans for the team.

The last few months have been great for you. How do you feel having coached this side since last year? It gives me great satisfaction at the way the boys responded to the challenges that we had before with us, and then changed the culture we had before, believing in themselves mainly. I was very satisfied as coach.
