An Australian site talking postively about Bangladeshi cricket!

did you actually feel the very negative tone on BD/SL test match, the report termed them both as minnows, and the last line - .......but does anybody care?"

March 8, 2006, 07:10 PM
am I missing something? where is the positive part? I see a, 'what is happening' with an arrogant tone.

It's true. I just skimmed to the bit about the Under 19 world cup. That site is purposefully opinionated, that's why I read it but it was at least cool that they acknowledge that we aren't inherently bad and that we're developing for the future. the world needs to understand that Good things don't happen overnight.

but we are talking about australia, they don't even know cricket gets played anywhere else in the world I think:P

The only reason they were talking a little on the positive side was because they were discussing about the subcontinent.

Ok - the term minnows is harsh but true. Bangladesh is ranked 10 and Sri Lanka 7 (only above the hapless Zimbabweans and West Indies).

We are on the improve and based on the enthusiasum and junior world cup results - its only a matter of time before we smash the aussies!

where we see the positives in the report

lol that sounded like a typical Aussie 'cleverly-make-the-fun-outta-minnows' review....

anyway, that article led me Inzy's strange dismissal video so here it is-

All other teams are minnows behind Australia, right now.

Hmm! you must not know Steve Waugh! The previous Aussie captain? I am sure every Aussie website reports what comes out of his mouth about Cricket to the press.
