Well, it's over, and it's been a great deal of fun. We've had so many great memories of this world cup. I would like to share one here.

One of the earliest members of BC and teststatus.com, our Tipu bhai was watching the BD vs India match with me. Tipu is an engineer and a realtor, and an avid cricket fan. This guy has had the opportunity to chat with many cricket legends of our time. Tipu still plays cricket and has great cricketing sense.

During our match against India, we reacted with anger and fear when Tamim was hit in the neck by a nasty bouncer. Our first wicket was already gone by then. We saw Tamim's reaction, the look in his eyes. Tipu says:

[বাংলা]খাইছে,আইজকা হয় আমাগো ভাইগ্য খারাপ, আর নাইলে ইনডিয়ার ভাইগ্য খারাপ আছে।[/বাংলা]
(It's either our bad luck, or it's India's bad luck that the ball hit Tamim...)

As we all know, Tamim exacted his revenge in the most brutal manner after that hit.
Sweet...

Please feel free to share yours.....

The win against SA - after two heavy defeat against Aus and NZ. That match we simply played like Number One team- not SA. I understood one thing from that game, now we don't need to wait for Big Boy's mistakes anymore instead we can make them doing mistakes. Great feeling since then :)

The winning shot by Mushfiq made me so sad. All I could think of was Rana. The team played for him and may be with him in the field.

For me Tamim's 50 and his HUGE 6 against India, the one he nearly chopped his own head off with the bat. Tamim and Musfiq's 50 was simply beautiful to watch. Many people were really emotional after that match.
Here enjoy Tamim's Dholai once again..(Indian fans look away now)

I cudnt watch the Ireland game live as I was playing cricket in a league match. Our batsmen didnt do well (just like BD that day) and only scored 135 runs in 35 overs. I was checking the BD/IRL score all this time thru my brother and during the break when I got the news that IRL scored around 220/240, I prayed to Allah that I dont care if I loose my game but He let BD win the game. Well we won our game (got 3 wks) and we all know what BD did. Coming back to home driving an hour & half - all I cud think of why BD cudnt win. Apart from all the HIGHS (India/SF win) - this was the lowest point of the whole WC.

my sweetest moment is actually not directly related to the WC 07 - it can be measured by how the indian camp has been thrown into disray after writing their spot into the super 8s (and beyond) a tad bit too early.

firing the coach, benching SRT, dada; bhajji, pathan, et al being thrown out all together is all quite sweet if you realize what it means.

It was the BD/Ind match for me. I hadn't slept at all the previous night and was a bit groggy in the morning. My brother, who lives a good 30 mins away from me and not at all a morning person showed up on time as did a few other friends. There was enough food to last us a week. As soon as Aftab crashed into the stumps we sensed something special was in the cards. By the time Mash castled Sewag we were in full festivities.

During BD innings, my friend who's originally from Chittagong kept shouting "Bai Foot, Bai Foot" (Nephew, nephew) with each Tamim Iqbal boundery. Our wives cheerfully joined in. My Bhabi wanted to adopt Mushfiq, "kolay nye ador korte ichha kore-so cute.' she kept saying. Perfect end to a perfect day

'BHAI POOT' (bhai=bhai, poot=pootro=chele, bhai er chele) bhaloi khelse oi match e. Set the tone for us. :)

For me, it has to be the win against India. The win against SA was bigger but being there on the field and playing the way we did against India in our world cup opener as the perfect start to this WC.

As it is about personal feelings then there is no point of telling about our success rather let me tell you my happy moments.

My british neighbor is a huge fan of cricket. When we were playing in our first match he told me 'these kids are brilliant in the field'. After that match he said "you guys got some fire".

During SA match I met another person who plays for Abbots Langley cricket club. He came to me when he saw me and said "Ash is a genious. I think he is the best young player at present".

Lot of people made lot of comments but I can't mention each of them. To me the biggest thing we achieved in this WC is The Respect. We showed we got the product we just need to polish it.

I still remember a comment made by the same Abbots Langley player after the win against the Aussies in cardif "What an amazing cricketing nation you gonna be!!" ANd truly we are going to be.

Billah bhai personal moments jante chay...bepar ta ektu kemon shonay na? ;)

Well, for me the best feeling was the Indian match. That's the only match that I saw with a crowd, in big screen, and BEST OF ALL, with the crowd equally divided with Indians and Bangladeshis. Each wicket that fell for India, and every run that BD scored just took our excitements to a new level. It's impossible for me to explain how good that felt...but I'm sure many of you felt the same way.

I'ld just tell you about one thing that I enjoyed the most. I was on BC chat during the Indian match, and we were watching on big screen via internet. The video was delayed by about 30/45 seconds compared to TV. Every time there was a fall of wicket for India, I basically knew that before everyone watching the match in big screen. Since we had a BD supporters side of the room, we all circulated the msg around, and everyone was ready for the FoW, and wooting at every ball. The Indian fans were clueless as to why we would all go so excited all of a sudden and right away there would be a wicket fall. We did that for at least 4 wicket falls. And after each wicket fall, I gave my marka mara dance in front of the crowd...which I'm sure both sides of the fans enjoyed :D (of course, many hated it too).

the sweetest moment of the whole world cup was beating south africa so convincingly.the manner whith which we beat them was unbelievable.at that moment,i thought that we now have a very good chance to make it to the semis...what a feeling..bangladesh can make the semifinals.....although we played very badly the next three matches.....but the feeling of beating south africa at the super 8 was amazing.

beating india was also brought gr8 happyness...in this case i was really expecting bd to beat them...so it was expected..(atleast to me)..

losing to ireland is for me,as painful as was our loss to canada in 2003...it was really shocking..i thought we would beat them comfortably...but alas...but i forgive our cricketers this time..because they gave us lots of moments of fun and excitement.

in this world cup...happy moments overweigh than the sorrow moents as a bangladeshi supporter...that all matters after the end of the day.

best moment:razzak clean bold ab devilliers who was clueless.

We were at a friend's house watching South Africa being beaten and just when Mashrafee caught the ball of Ntini, my two year old, sensing our jubilation started jumping up and down shouting "banggaaa desh" and soon the older kids joined in. That is my fondest moment.

2nd most fondest moment. We went to watch the Bangladeshi innings at the local Indian theater. As Tamim and co started driving the nail home, we Bangladeshis started being raucous as heck. Soon the Indian fans were being driven out from their own theater while we shouted smack. Aaaaaaaah that felt good :)

for me, the personal best has to be around 20 of us jumping up in unison when mushfiq hit the winning runs against india, and the excuses that the indian fans watching the games with us were coming up with right after the end of the game.

best moment of the world cup was the celebration at TSC, Dhaka University after beating Bermuda and qualifying for the Super 8s.

If i wanna talk abt a single delivery...then it has to be mashrafe's bowl in which sehwag was bowled..(the first moment for BD in this WC)

May I inquire about your obsession with 'spanking'? It may raise certain questions in some quarters. Just wondering.

Spanking is my obsession. Specially when I see people getting spanked for playing good. I like it when senior players spank junior players for playing better than them...so the junior players turn out to be devils.

What quarters? Even my headquarter is highly aware of it. Save your life...run for it :D

oook..

My favourite moment was Tamim dancing down the pitch and swatting Zaheer Khan for that massive six.

Hehe, one of the moments I specially enjoyed was when Uthappa came in to bat, and then walked back to the pavilion soon after. There were plenty of people creating a ruckus on how Uthappa'd spank us.. and I enjoyed thinking oishob public'er mukh kaalo hoye jachhe!

I had my BD flag handy when watching the match... after we won vs India, I tied one end round my neck and had it flowing like a cape behind me. Walked out of the restaurant... with a smile and a spring in my step... got into the subway and came back home - a silent way of celebrating the victory since hardly anyone would know the significance.... except the Indian storekeeper at St. Patrick subway, amake dekhe tar mukh ghomra hoye gesilo. And boy, seeing THAT was fun! >:)

Tamim's charge like a marauder down the pitch to take Zaheer to the 2nd tier of the stands was one heck of a defining moment! I have replayed the delivery over a couple dozens time just to hear Ian Bishop say "Oh hoooo, look at this! It belies a 17-year old really... showing very little respect to the elder statesman!" Classic.

But something else that's touched me deeply throughout the World Cup is my 2-year old sister's love for that GrameenPhone Ad "Cholo Bangladesh". Everytime it's on the TV, she runs to watch it and when it shows a little girl with our flag painted on her cheeks, my sister says, "Bhaiya amakeo gaaley Banlades er potaka ekey debey"... brought tears to my eyes a couple of times.
