After the kiwi wash a lot was expected from BD in WC2011 but except the win against Eng we achieved nada (but humiliation)
In Asia cup there was very little/ moderated expectations but no one really thought we will win more than one match but we won 2 and went to the final.
In the 1st T20 cup no one really thought we will beat WI and go to the next round but we did.
In 2012 T20 cup we were expected to do really well against NZ and get outplayed by Pak but against Pak we at least batted well.
Reading a PAlo article, Tamim said the whole preparation was mainly to do well against the Kiwis as they were the weaker one compared to Pak ,but everything went wrong in that match.
We can add the Ind beating in 2007 WC too.

It might sound silly but I think we are a much better team with the "under dog" tag, also when not much is expected.
the pressure of expectation doesn't help at all. :-|

^^^ or is that we only stand a chance when other teams don't take us seriously?

I totally agree with Simon bro. Indeed, We see BD performing really well when we keep our expectation levels to a minimum. :)

Never hype up an upcoming BD match and expect the worse, and lets see how it works out.

What expectations were there after losing to Ireland, Scotland, Netherlands and even trinidad? These are just BS excuses

Why would you expect less from a team who has been playing cricket over 10 years? Not to mention who also plays test. If fans are not willing to push it, players will just sit there and watch bollywood and eat byrani instead of practicing or staying fit!
