That's written by By Gulu Ezekiel. Doesn't sound like an Indian name.

No offense, but that's an extremely dumb comment, and obviously made without reading the column. India is a diverse country and people of many ethnicities and religions inhabit it. On that note, does Tapash Baishya sound like a Bangladeshi name? How about Nafees Iqbal?

Gulu Ezekiel is as much of an Indian as Farokh Engineer, Sam Maneckshaw and Persis Khambata. They are all Parsis.

Of course Tapash Baishya sounds like a Bengali name, if you know what "Baishya" means that is. Quit making yourself look dumber than what you already are.

To be fair to them, cricketnext.com has the 5th ODI news as their cover story. Jood Job!

Changed the title. No need to paste any national or religious stamps here.

Don't forget to read the footnote of the article.

Both Tapash Baishya and Nafees Iqbal are common in BD. Anyway the previous title of this thread was good enough to disoblige BC members.

a good and informative piece from Sify which should help to counter the negative vibes.

Come on carte blanche and capslock. You guys are awesome posters. Let's bury this short-lived hatchet- preferebly not in each others backs. Let's enjoy a double series win.

It's a good column, so it must not be from any Indian source. :duh:

Maybe that guy is not an Indian really. He must be a Red-Indian :))

Very good and positive article in sify.com/khel.com (although it's entirely the writer's opinion).
Let's celebrate the victory!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is really an irony.

Today's BBC has an article in the cricketing section titled:

An unclear future
Will the weakest Test nations continue to be bullied by big boys?


http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/default.stm

This whole article is pointed at BD, and comes on the eve of their first Test and ODI series win.

I wonder how this board and the board fans would've reacted if:

1. The site was Cricinfo instead of BBC and
2. The writer was either unknown (which would mean some "Indian") or had an Indian sounding name!!!

A very constructive, meaningful and factual article.

DJ, i feel your pain bro.

Guys, seriously. Let's give the Indian sports writers a break. I bet if we were better then India, we'd have a lot of articles written to 'glorify' our neighbors many losses. Feel free to write about the sports writer without highlighting the nationality.

In time we will become one of the top teams in world cricket and all of them will have to eat their words. Until then, we'll see millions of such writings from the Indian, Pakistani, Australian and British press.

Hey CAPSLOCK,

Nafis Iqbal is a Muslim name. Majority of Bangladeshis are Muslims. What makes you think that "Nafis Iqbal" is only a Paki name?

Once and for all, can we refrain from name calling and stop putting any nation or nationality down? This is ridiculous. This is in very poor taste. Let people express thier opinion, and you can express yours and refute thier's intelligently with facts.
