When Bangladesh was not in the proximity or was just on the horizon, I always used to pick WI and then SL. I have no idea why I liked WI (this is late 80's I am talking about, I was in my single digits). And then SL, mostly because I always felt, they are what we should role model after.
Right now, to be honest, I don't even know who plays for what team, who their good players are (until they are to face BD). I have absolutely zero interest about any foreign team unless we are playing them. So, I don't give a rat's *** about IPL or champions trophy or whatever that we are not part of.
The past players that I had admiration for: Cartley Ambross (sp), Wasim Akram, Mohamed Ajharuddin, Arbinda De Silva. I cannot find any pattern there.
সন্মানজনক পরাজয়ের চিন্তাটাই অসন্মানজনক
- The days of playing for honorable defeat is over.
