The Bangladesh team should do this type of stuf

South Africa will play agains orphans............ to boost their confidence, whatever SA score the orphans have to score half if SA batted first or if orphans batted first SA has to score double to win........... see guys even orphans dont wanna play against our national team cuz they know if they do play the situation will be opposite (whatever bd score they have to score double) man i think bd should play like this to all the national team in the world whatever they score bd needs to score half to win lol this is the only way they can win SOME matches. key word "SOME". cuz that way they will still lose some.

strangely we have two threads' headlines running simultaneously on the front page, it's not miraz mama's fault. it's actually the same thread with all the same posts. freaky!

I don't think we want to lose to a New Zeland or South African orphanage team while trying, so we're probably not going to do that :lol:.

It's always nice to see a smile on their faces....:)
Thank you S.A :)
