crontab NOT working


I have put the following entry in crontab and it is NOT working

HTML Code:
1 * * * * [ `date +%d` -eq `echo \`cal\` | awk '{print $NF-4}'` ] && /mybin/myjob.sh
As today is Sep 26th, Iam using NF-4 to test.

[edit] I shouldn't post when it's this early in the morning. OK. I see what you're code is doing now. What are the permissions on the script file?

this works for me:
[ $(date +%d) -eq $(echo `cal` | awk '{ print $NF-4 }') ] && <cmd goes here>
