THIS TABLE WAS FILLED WITH TROPHIES FOR THE DIFFERENT PLACE WINNERS IN A CRICKET TOURNAMENT.  Tonight the football team I play with is playing in the finals, of course  we hope to go home with the 1st Place trophy. It’s an evening match so I’m not sure what kind of photos I’ll will be able to take.

TROPHIES TO GIVE TO THE WINNERS OF THE CRICKET TOURNAMENT.

I WAS INVITED TO THIS FINALS MATCH (Pardon me, cricket players if there is another name for the event! 🙂  )  My cricket terminology is not the best.  Anyway this boy seemed to enjoy this opportunity.  Here are some shots of him in action, or waiting for action.

Day 50

MY FRIEND HALIM STANDING IN FRONT OF ONE OF THE MANY STRUCTURES GREETING visitors entering Dhaka for the ICC World Cup Cricket 2011. It has parts of each of the 14 participating countries represented on a cricket bat.  Today Bangladesh is playing India.  For both teams this is almost as important as the finals.  In a previous World Cup Bangladesh upset India and India is hoping for paybacks today.

Day 48

SOMEWHAT OF A ‘WILD GOOSE CHASE!”  Last evening my friend called and wondered if me and my camera could come to his place at 8:15 to be ready for departure at 8:30 pm to go with him and two friends of his to the airport.  We didn’t get left in the CNG until 9 pm.  I thought maybe he was meeting a friend at the airport, but soon realized it was to look at and take photos of the many lights in the city as it celebrates the ICC World Cup Cricket 2011.  It reminded me of driving around the countryside during the Christmas and enjoying the lights.  We arrived at the airport after at least an hour of travelling (waited for a train at two different locations).  Halim had seen an ad for the World Cup on TV that showed the airport with a magnicent light display, but obviously it was only to greet the teams and not there for the duration of the event!  He was disappointed.  We did stop at several places to take photos.

These are some of the lights that were along Airport Road.
