View Full Version : Passion for cricket in BD

October 12, 2003, 02:13 AM
I have attached a picture published in BBC which shows the real passion and enthusiasm for cricket in Bangladesh. I know it was published in another post, but I just couldnít stop myself from publishing it again in a new post with a new topic. Forgive me for being so naive.

Look at the picture, how close in flied setting is done by these young village boys who hardly get opportunity to watch international cricket in Dish antenna! I can remember when I was a kid and used to play cricket, we used to set defensive fielding more like ODI cricket. It clearly shows the sign that nowadays kids are smarter than us and, more focused towards test cricket. And off course their passion for the game is enormous and goes far beyond our imagination.

Donít you guys agree with me that we deserve to be a great cricketing nation in future?
I am just overwhelmed by the picture and getting a bit emotional. This is indeed one of the best pictures on BD cricket I have ever seen on the net!!!

Bangladesh kids play cricket wherever they can find space (BBC)
