BANGLADESH V NZ

One-day internationals Bangladesh

comment on the article

Tomorrow is the day to face NZ.We have a warm-up win against them but the stakes are higher and these are trying times.I somehow have this feeling that our players have become a little bit home-sick and as the match against Australia did not offer much to celebrate. I think they are may be thinking of themselves in a spot of botheration. But these are the times to rise above these little drawbacks and other tit-bits and play for Bangladesh.

I understand that New Zealand are a very good side but I believe in our team. I wish a better tomorrow for Bangladesh.

India played poorly in the match vs BD. I don't believe Indian players might have deliberatly tanked the match. The ageing players might have felt too much pressure to win the match, given this was their last opportunity for winning WC. Further, to say that India tanked the match would be disrespectful to BD that put up a gritty performance. I wish BD well, but at this stage of development, they are probably not capable of winning at least two matches in the Super Eight. Nevertheless, BD and Ireland have been the best performers among the so-called minnows.

I do not know it is culture driven or language related, but I seen a trend that Pakistan and Bangladesh fans seem to often use rather rough and caustic language.

You have been more gentlemanly with your language when you said: " just shut up and enjoy cricket with a truee sportsmanship mind."

Life is not all black or white. Shades of gray are OK. We don't have either love or hate. We can admire and yet it is OK to criticise where it is due.

"i don't see our boys getting any kin from bangladesh, nevertheless,
they have at least themselves together as a team, as oppose to hundreds
of lonely kids at foreign university dormitories for years."

No Kin because no money for their flight tickets.
And kids in university are you kidding ol chap may be the corner shop.

England to win the WC

'I do not know it is culture driven or language ... Pakistan and Bangladesh fans ...caustic language.' i see you left out india in it. they're the same people .. language, culture, climate and so forth; they're the same country all together when you (if you're british) ruled them for 200 years, remember! you can't even tell by looking at someone whether he is from which of those three...

so, i suppose you're an indian or an adopted english with indian baggage; then i understand your frustration against those two, especially bangladesh recently. lol.

but don't be so serious. this is not life and death; for god sack, this is just a bulletin board for cricket - a game, just a game. cheer up, everyone in a country are not either bad or good.

three cheers for the tigers

This is only a game. That's why I am saying be nice to your fellow discussants. I don't have any baggage. I happen to be gentle person who wishes everyone well. No need to say things like "shut up."

i take it you're not saying me to stop saying 'shut up'. even then, don't you hear that phrase from your nearest and dearest ones at times and again when things get excited; i don't see anything offending such that the sky is falling apart.

well, i tend to think you'd be a 'gentle person', but i'm afraid your postings lately do not fully support that, and you may need a bit more work to do on that.

I believe SpeakingCivilised is referring to the posts after the India Bangladesh game, must admit there was a lot of trash talking , country bashing going on . Please keep these
hateful comments on your own countries website unless you thought ‘BBC’ was Bangladesh Broadcasting Corp.

again, i didn't see much hate, as explained before, in that posting, rather inconsistencies -'gentlemenlike' one time and 'indecent' the next -from my engllish (i think) pal.

i agree, talking against a whole nation can get to anyones nerve and would be foolish, so would be anything other than cricket here. whether it's bbc or abc or cbs or nbc, we have as much right to be here as you do - who do you thing you'd be debating with had we all gone away from 606. and i take it you dont want that to happen anytime soon.

bbc - britiish br cor could very well become bangladesh br cor, you never know. lol
