Yes, the article made some decent points. But I feel it was on the whole a tasteless and opportunistic piece meant to add insult to injury and little else.

This feeling of inferiority - to call a spade a spade - manifests itself in misplaced aggression in the comments section of ESPNcricinfo articles from Bangladesh fans.
Once again, this doesn't address a) that "misplaced" aggression is almost always AFTER idiotically prejudicial comments from the typical Indopak cricket fan with the odd denigration from whitey Smith thrown in for good measure and b) any self-belief from fans is usually scoffed at as delusion.

According to Purohit's definition our war of independence was also one of "misplaced aggression".

Its been a long time since CI has run a piece this demeaning.
