A dominant all-round performance from Shakib Al Hasan helped Bangladesh secure a historic series win in Mirpur, their first against a top-flight opposition. Shakib's fifth ODI century rescued the home team from the depths of 44 for 3 and lifted them to a formidable 241, a target that proved nine runs too many for New Zealand, who now trail 0-3 in the series, with one game to go. Shakib then struck with the ball and, despite a valiant maiden hundred from Kane Williamson who battled through injury during the latter part of his innings, slammed the door on the visitors with three wickets to lead Bangladesh to a famous victory.
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan has been named The Wisden Cricketer magazine's 2009 World Test Player of the Year.
The magazine said on Thursday that Shakib topped the performance table of all test players based on marks awarded by Wisden Cricketer correspondents. "I guess I owe my performance to keeping things simple. I don't lose sleep over disappointments and rather look ahead to seize the next opportunity," Shakib said.
Shakib, who led Bangladesh to their first overseas test series victory against West Indies in July, is the first Bangladeshi cricketer to win the award.

Oct 18 — Hollywood’s Oscar race is only about six weeks old, but already one theme is emerging: unlike most years when men dominate the critical buzz for strong roles, this season women are the talk of the town.
From previous Oscar winners such as Nicole Kidman and big stars like Annette Bening to newcomers such as Jennifer Lawrence, women are tearing it up on the big screen. Some Oscar watchers see as many as 15 possible contenders for five best actress nominations.
The experts cite several reasons for what may be dubbed “The Year of the Actress” at Oscar time in February. Chief among them is that many of the strong female stories are making it onto film because the women themselves have greater clout to get their pet film projects made.
“Not only are women taking centre stage, they are dominating the stage entirely,” said Tom O’Neil, awards expert for TheEnvelope.com.
The Oscars, of course, are the world’s top film honours, and pundits begin handicapping the awards categories, based on screenings at film festivals in Venice, Telluride and Toronto, which generally begin in late August and early September.
Most years when it comes time for some 6,000 voters at the Beverly Hills-based Academy of Arts and Sciences to pick winners, Academy watchers have a difficult time narrowing down the best actor category because generally three or four, if not all five nominees have turned in strong performances.
Best actress, however, typically narrows more easily because often times there is just one or two favorites. Last year, for instance, Sandra Bullock faced very little competition when she picked up the statuette for her role in football film, “The Blind Side.”
“Normally with the actress race, you scramble to find three good ones,” said Pete Hammond, awards columnist with Deadline Hollywood. “You’re looking at women who may not even get nominated this year, while in a lesser year they may have very well won.”
A variety of themes in movies are giving numerous women a shot. Notions of what a family truly means dominate comedy “The Kids Are All Right,” which has Bening and Julianne Moore playing a lesbian couple raising a pair of teens.
Briton Sally Hawkins portrays a “Norma Rae”-type factory worker with a mission to get women equal pay in “Made in Dagenham”, and Natalie Portman won raves at September’s Venice film festival playing a vengeful ballerina in director Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan”.
Kidman is a grieving mother whose young son dies accidentally in “Rabbit Hole”, and Michelle Williams is a woman who wants out of her marriage in “My Blue Valentine”. Lawrence is turning heads as a teen left alone to fend for her younger siblings in drug drama “Winter’s Bone”.
And the list goes on: Anne Hathaway (“Love and Other Drugs”), Lesley Manville (“Another Year”), Gwyneth Paltrow (“Country Strong”) and Naomi Watts (“Fair Game”).
Making the 2010 best actress race even more interesting is that many of the roles are being judged independently from their male counterparts, said O’Neil.
That phenomenon contrast to recent wins by actresses such as Reese Witherspoon, who took home an Oscar for playing June Carter to Joaquin Phoenix’s Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line” (2005) or Hilary Swank, who played a boxer in “Million Dollar Baby” (2004) opposite Clint Eastwood as her coach.
Hammond pointed out that many of the roles come out of movies made independently from Hollywood’s big studios and the actresses have been instrumental in finding funding.
Moore, for example, championed “Kids are All Right” for five years while its makers looked for financing and was instrumental in bringing actor Mark Ruffalo on board.
Kidman read a review of the stage play “Rabbit Hole”, which prompted her to pursue the project as a film adaptation. She became a producer and personally enlisted Aaron Eckhart to play her husband.
“They’re getting these passion projects made that would otherwise never see the light of day,” said Hammond.So this year, when Oscar nominations open up, the Academy will have plenty of women to choose from, and the big question won’t be, “who is in?” Rather, it will be “who is out?”

Bangladesh Done the Whitewash to New Zealand..................2010
Daniel Vettori wanted to win the last game of the series to salvage pride. After New Zealand failed and lost 4-0, the talk in Mirpur was that he shed a few tears and later called it the worst tour of his career, asking his team to learn from the opposition and not embarrass him in India. Throughout the last decade, those actions were a Bangladesh captain's prerogative but the last fortnight, and perhaps the last two months, have been refreshingly different for him.
Previously, special moments in Bangladesh cricket were made memorable mostly by the celebrations that followed. The wins themselves never grew into something bigger, except for bigger defeats. Consistency always played only a cameo.
After the disastrous defeat to Netherlands in July, even their inner circle started cold-shouldering the players. Bangladesh's coach Jamie Siddons then decided that the summer's frustration could only be blown off through plain old hard work, in the form of a camp that spanned a month and a half.
Bangladesh's players had never spent so much time training, according to the experienced Shahriar Nafees and few regular journalists. All of a sudden, they had net and fielding sessions from 8am to 4pm, a drastic change from Bangladesh's training method over the years.

Bangladesh won two successive ODIs against a major opposition for the first time in history as they thrashed New Zealand by seven wickets on 11 Oct'2010. Bangladesh took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series, and won two consecutive ODIs against top-flight opposition for the first time in their 232-match history, by cruising to a 7-wicket victory in the third one-dayer at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium in Mirpur. The trio of Bangladesh's left-arm spinners were into the game early after Shafiul Islam had removed the dangerous Brendon McCullum in the first over, and they tore out the heart of the New Zealand batting line-up, reducing them to 101 for 7 in the 33rd over. A belligerent 72-run association between Ross Taylor and Kyle Mills revived the innings, but a total of 173 was always going to be tough to defend, especially with the New Zealand seam bowlers yet to find their radar on this rain-ridden tour.
Suhrawardy Shuvo was the pick of the bowlers with his incisive, economic spell of 3 for 14 in 10 overs and Judged Man of the match. He was backed up by Shakib with two for 45 and Mahmudullah, 2 for six.

Bangladesh rode on an outstanding all-round performance from Shakib Al Hasan to beat New Zealand by nine runs in Mirpur, making Daniel Vettori's pre-match comments about his ability seem almost clairvoyant.
Shakib was scintillating with the bat in the latter part of Bangladesh's innings, unleashing a range of shots in the batting Powerplay to lift Bangladesh to a competitive 229. He then tormented the visitors with the ball, scalping four invaluable wickets including a double-strike in the 15th over to remove the rampant Brendon McCullum and Grant Elliott. He then returned to bowl a brilliant penultimate over in the rain-curtailed run chase, giving away just three runs and claiming the wicket of Nathan McCullum to give his side an unexpected 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
