You know why. Some people are not only woefully ignorant about the nuances of cricket, but love to celebrate mediocrity because they've been mediocre themselves. They resent better potential, and love to tear into setbacks and failures of such people, often by resorting to decontextualization and intellectual dishonesty. Intellectual inadequacy may also be a factor.

Some others, neither ignorant nor vindictive, genuinely don't see what we may see but they constitute a smaller number of posters with contrary opinion. They come around once they've had the chance to see what we see over a period of time. Just as we may be proven wrong.

There's also a small number sectarian morons who don't like non-Muslim players and what Bangladesh truly stands for. They want to see a Bangla speaking Pakistan or Saudi Arabia here just like their daddies in 1971.
"And do not curse those who call on other than GOD, lest they blaspheme and curse GOD, out of ignorance. We have adorned the works of every group in their eyes. Ultimately, they return to their Lord, then He informs them of everything they had done." (Qur'an 6:108)
