View Full Version : If BD loses to Namibia - what then?

Every paper is sayng that if Bangladesh wins all 5 matches against Namibia, then it will be great for the team.

But what happens if Bangladesh loses to Namibia either 5-0 or 3-2? What then? Won't the team spirit go down?

I have been saying for a WHILE that Namibia has a very strong team for US or any other ICC associate sides. They are probably not going to trouble the big teams but they can beat us or teams like Kenya/Canada on any given day.

5-0 is too much, it's just a negative attitude. 3-2 is possible but I'd go for a 3-2 or 4-1 for Bangladesh. Even if we lose, so what ? It's not the end of the world. Yes, the papers will bury the team, the 'seasonal fans' will lose interest but it won't matter once we post a couple of wins in the world cup.

OUr win against Kenya and Canada are just dreams/hopes, there is no assurance that we will win those two matches. :)

Fwullah -

Hopefully that won't happen ! BD have always come out stronger after its losses. Even breathing the SA air will be good for the team - will make them at home !!
