Bangladesh players are tired after playing the WC for one and half months and that's why we see such a poor performance from them in this BD-IND series. In contrast, Indian players after being knocked out from the 1st round in WC, got ample time to rest and prepare for this series. (even during WC, Anil Kumble was expressing concern to Mashrafe for short window between WC and BD-IND series but things turned out the other way. Source: Cricinfo-"Last month Anil Kumble told him that the Indians were worried about the window between the World Cup and the tour to Bangladesh.. http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/story/289073.html " )

After kicked out from WC 1st round Indian players have something to proof in this series as their houses were burnt down by the Indian fans and thier places in the team are at stake. Even, Australia would be thrashed by Indians right now in this circumstance. But for BD players, this is more like a 'honeymoon' period after showing excellent performance in the WC. (Look at SL, after the glorious performance in the WC, they lost series to Pakistan). So, don't worry guys about this series. Our players will come back soon when they get some rest after this series and next time in BD-IND series BD will repeat the performance of March 17 even in the test series. :flag:

Thnx for the optimism . I think you are partially right too .I was thinking the same thing. And the Pak-SL series is a great example of this honeymoon thing.
Yeah we'll beat them again soon... let's just take a bit of a rest now...including us fans.Been quite a mighty journey....

Yes, like your optimism Bangla_usa.
You probably are right.
But the worst part is, all the good work is being undone in just 3 days of cricket.

you opened a thread for a excuse of BD played bad. Remember this quote "Winners make goals, Losers make excuses." Its not like first time we played bad. We have always played bad against India except WC. So we are already embarrassed and please dont make it worse by giving us excuses. Thank you.

Does the Truth hurt, eh?

Why do you think Mashrafe is not 100% fit?
