Yes, we all know we should have won against Ireland and Windies. But its a fallacy to say that to dream, we need to consistently score big. Big scores on utterly flat pitches dont help much, while small totals on a good pitch (with bounce and spin) can be lethal...I know you wont be able to see examples of this in the Bangladeshi game history, but just look at some of India's matches for examples...

Big-hitters often fall flat on their face when they least expect it. I honestly prefer normal consistent batsmen, for comparison purposes look at Dhoni and Dravid, and if anyone says they would choose Dhoni over Dravid, they should be put in a mental institute.

The situation is different now from 1983, and will be different in 2011 than it is now. Lets not talk about the far future and instead concentrate on the coming present? We'll have a more consistent team by then and hence we will continue to dream regardless of what you might have to say to discourage us...
