Just want to gloat and post write-ups and comments before the clash.

Here's a starter:

Cricket: Bang out of order
By Dylan Cleaver

By the time you read this Bangladesh would have once more been put through a ritual humiliation, this time at the hands of Australia.

Atherton to have broiled crow:


As regards the progress of this tournament, the result is irrelevant. By inviting poor old Bangladesh the organisers have subjected everybody to the geometrical anomaly of a two-sided triangle - no matter what happens in the three matches between England and Australia they will still both contest the final in three weeks' time.

That is expected from Atheron, he doesn't have a good word to day about Bangladesh. He said a few weeks back that Bangladesh would struggle to beat minor counties sides. Let's see what he says if Bangladesh beat England on Tuesday.

Michael Athertons a damn fine journalist, I respect him emmensly. The quality of his writing is another level. I may not agree with everything he says, but his columns are some of the best around.

As for the author of that NZ Herald article, he will feel a right tit.

Look guys, we have to be rational here. If people complains about including Bangladesh in the Natwest Trophy with heavyweights like Australia and England, that is fair given the record of Bangladesh until today.

Who could not predict this gonna happen?

I don't hear brazil crying foul before playing a nation from africa or that nature from any other sports... NFL NHL u name it. This is a new trened taken up by some western writer who think this sports is theirs fathers own and people like bd has no right to play.. Can u imagine ronaldo saying on the paper before brazil-ecudor match "this is waste of his time". They show up to the field and play the match even though its one sided. so u can't make excuses for being inpolite like this craps are... I just have to say Most ordinary people will see led as unused ugly item but only a real person can tel how much worthy it is for human kind if u refine it... SO to me all these craps who doen't know about the bd cricket background and make these asumption by seeing them in a most dificult condition is dumb as they can be...

I hope we do infact all of BD fans hoping for it . We need to work hard and harder than this just forget about something else as "Micheal Holding" said to "Bashar" don't celebrate too much . That's very true on the other hand when Bashar said :
We have to celebrate caz this kinda days doesn't come in BD Cricket often .

Trying hard would come up with a better fight atleast as they can celebrate later when they go back in Bangladesh . People would be waiting for them in the Airport to celebrate all together . It may be the first time people will be waiting with flowers back in BD when they go back there .

Too much celebrating might come up a big loose . Eg : Ind vs Bang 3rd odi ...... last year .
