btw, if you hate or dont care about either teams, dont bother mentioning it.......and please for God's sake, dont attach nationalist sentiments unlike some people.....

i mean youve got the feedom to do whatever you want but this equation says it all.....

Politics + Sports = Sour Emotional Discussion

i neither hate nor dont care about any of the "teams". however, i was looking forward to the series and enjoyed following it. as usual, since bd wasn't playing, i wasn't supporting anyone, but i was looking forward to a competitive and really good series. i was really impressed by the way the young pakistan side did their job.

Yea. I have a 2nd test team that I support. But I am afraid to reveal that in public because of the fear of public humiliation and fear of being tagged as unpatriotic and ungrateful.

Therefore I will keep my mouth shut for now.

Yeah...I supported Pakistan not only because I started to understand cricket when Inzy played that 60 of 37 balls in the semi-finals of '92 but also because I'd support any team in the world against India....cheers.....

If we all eliminate the equation of politics, past history and just look at cricket- then there would be a lot more fans voting for Pakistan. Only becoz they understand the game and likes attacking cricket(although at times, Pakistani team have been known to play defensive cricket).

I supported Pakistan only because of the Indian fans who were gleefully predicting a whitewash .

Pakistan! Simply because i got seriously into cricket with Pakistan winning the worldcup in 92. That's perhaps the earliest memory i have of cricket.

I supported India. Although like banglatiger84 I was put off by the attitude of some Indian fans. I never supported Pakistan in my life - in fact when I was younger I harboured such animosity towards Pakistan that I would have supported any country against it even Israel! I am older and a lot mellower now.

I know exactly how you feel. There was a time I wouldn't answer to even simple 'hellos' from Pakistanis in my school in New York.

And yes, I too have mellowed.

And I've learned to treat the game of cricket on its merit and not attahed to anything else.

such hatred is not good for you.....

anyway, if your hatred for pakistan is related to the war and atrocities, i wonder how you put israel over pakistan....

nothing beats cruelty of israelis in their day to day activities in palestine.......

None But I just wanted to see both team destroy the bowlers. It happened but not enough! When these two team plays the games are very high scoring. Most of the time 300+ runs and very close games. Just love that.
