View Full Version : Bangladeshis in the UK- time to start making a point

April 4, 2005, 11:03 AM
In the UK, when teams like India and Pakistan come they receive tremendous support from their people. Supporters from all over the UK come to watch the matches.

We have a huge population of Bangladeshis here, specially in London. Its true, we get support from them. But in reality there are still lots of people who dont pay any attention at all.

I feel its our duty to give our team all sort of support. I live in Birmingham and I am trying to group some people to go to the fields. I know its expensive, but our team doesnt come to the UK every year. Hope, people who loves BD will try their best to attend these matches.

Why not, the BanglaCricket members (living in the UK)try if they can manage some people. May be this will raise the confident of our players. :fanflag:

i agree i live in cambridge and there is a group of about 50 people going to the friday and saturday days of the lords test we will be there waving our bangladesh flags weraing our shrits and blowing our horns trying to make every back in banglasdesh proud of us, and also hoping that our team will rise to the occasion.

My the amount of people that i know are going to the test i can tell u that there will be about 13000 bangladesh surrporters going to the first test spered over the first 4 days

I've got tickets for the 1st day of the Lord's Test Match, so me and my dad will be giving our full support. Let's all get behind the team, get vocal, make some noise and give them all the encouragement they need.

For anyone thinking of going to the Lord's Test match, I have been advised by my 'gorah' colleagues that the best place to get seats is in the Grand Stand, as you get the best view of the big replay screen and also the corporate hospitality box is above you.
Just imagine, the high-society posh folks will be sipping their tea with their buttered scones whilst the Bangladeshi fans will be munching away on our pittas and biriani!
