The editor of New Age, Almer used to be a regular at teststatus.com (before we renamed it to Banglacricket.com). Miss his posts.

Incidently, I bought my WC tickets for the BD-Ind, BD-SL matches from Ra'ad. :)

Its good to see tears of joy. I actually find a lot of tears in BC now-a-days when team is doing good, an in form player playing bad, someone reads a touchy emotional story or some stupid like Asoka/Doctorve ruins the possibilities. The bottomline is we are Bangladeshi and in our heart the flow of emotions remains like the rivers no matter how much the rivers are dried up practically.

nice article. Would'nt say WC07 was the greatest BD event. That would have to be KL when we beat Kenya, and no one was there(at least from BC)

It was truely an amazing experience. The article was initially written for our Bangladesh Student Association in McGill and was done in a hurry.. but when true passion speaks, it reaches the furthest.. Well Done Tarem Bhai (I'll tell him to look up this thread; I'm not sure he joins BC frequently).

One of the most memorable events I recall is just after we beat India, we had a Bangladeshi style MICHIL right outside the Oval. All the local spectators and the valunteers joined in on our screams 'Bangladesh! Bangladesh!!' and no doubt it was one of proudest moments of my life as a Bangladeshi. Everywhere we went on that tiny yet so full of heart island, ppl came up to us- congratulating us- screaming names like 'Tamim!' . We were treated as celebrities, the locals took pictures with us as were in our Red and Green and asked questions about Bangladesh and our young cricketers.

Whenever I go back to the Trini days, I just tell myself, this is only a beginning. Greater moments awaits the BENGAL TIGERS!

Tarem bhai is an awesome awesome guy and a very good friend. And of course, Ra'ad happens to be one of my brothers as well. We had so much fun together there in Trinidad. That has to be one of the more memorable days of our lives. Though my name should be spelt with an "o" not "u".:)
