In that regard, Ash is certainly an intl star and defintiely a Bangladeshi 'superstar' in our context, if filtered through that prism and simply because for what he brings to the table.
Maybe Sohel should have ended the title with a question mark ( ? ). For example : The next Superstar of BD cricket? But, thats up to him and I focus on the content and not the title.
Perfectly put as always.
Thank you Beamer for your observations. Hindsight is always 20/20, no pun intended here, and your recommended thread title would have made the title more palatable to most who find it hard to swallow. Some, on the other hand, will continue to demonstrate the conviction of their own vanity and persist with the thinly disguised bitchfest.
"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)
