Default who are the most suffering cricket fans in the world?

bd fans were in the top of the table in terms of the most disheartend fans in the world just before bd-zims series. now they have been replaced by zimbabwe. for the last few months i have been surfing different cricket forums, chatline and website in order to find out this stats.
during WI-BD series last year i heard a WI fan took their cricket board in the court to sue because of heartache they had due to poor performance by WI cricket team.
last year one of my friend also suffered heart palpitation when pak won by 1 wicket in the test.
after a good observation in terms of fan's feelings, frustrations, complaints and joy, this is my verdict:
the table :from most suffering fans to least
1. Zimbabwe
2. West Indies
3. Bangladesh
4. Pakistan
5. India
6. South Africa
7. NewZealand
8. Srilanka
9. England
10.Australia

what do you think?

There's not much Cricket fans in Zimbabwe and number of Cricket fans in West Indies are declining. So Bangladesh is still on top of the list, especially after those all 2 tier talks.

We are not at number 3, we are at number 1. Even after test and ODI series win against Zimbabwe.

There are still a lot of Zimbabwean fans out there.

West Indies has recently achieved a good success after beating England in the ICC Champions trophy.


Zimbabwean fans have had their moments in the last decade - beating virtually every one from the 90s upto 2000.

It is us who need more success. Because we have suffered more than any other test playing country in these last 4 years.

P.S. As far as I know, Fans increase with the success of their team.

I agree that its us-The Bagladeshis but the West Indians are not far behind. If you talk to their older fans (age 40+) you can feel the pain they are going thru. They were the undisputed cjamps now dwelling on or near the bottom.

It has been long time that they were beaten by Kenya. So their pain is somewhat 'content' now. Its been nearly a decade that the West Indian fans faced their 'ultimate' shock. And by the time they lost to Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe recently, Zimbabwe were exactly not a 'minnow' team.

I would say that the people of 40 pluses find it very painful because of their glorious past in the '70s and '80s rather than their actual strength of their team.

So we are the most painful sufferers as cricket fans because we don't have such glorious pasts. In a way, that is not as painful as them, but 'we are under threat of being constantly getting the nod to play in a 2nd tier' whereas West Indians don't have to go through this pain.

On every occassion, whenever we beat somebody, like India for example last December, everybody here knows what we had to go through; for example - it was a wrong selection policy by the Indians rather than a 'deserved success' for us. When we were competitive against Pakistan during 2003, it was 'we played against a Pakistan B team' than it was a matha uchu kore daranor dike egiye jawa against a full strength Pakistan side.

Definitely Pakistan. They always have the individual talent, but fail to play as a team. That must be 100 times more frustrating than our case, where we really have limited talent to fight with the big boys.
