Default Fwullah

I am Fahmida Waliullah - live in Dhaka - Bangladesh.

I have been watching cricket on TV since 1996 World Cup. Have been reading Bangladesh cricket news since around about that time (since Bangladesh's tour of USA / Canada just before the ACC 95-96 / ICC 97 tournament).

I now write articles on cricket mainly on this site (with gratitude and encouragement from Tehsin and other members of this and the last messege board at rivals.net - test status.com).

I am in my early twenties, doing my undergrad here in the land of the free.

I haven't seen a cricket match on tv in the last 13 months. Hence I stay away from commenting ANYTHING about Bangladesh cricket most of the time.

Arnab, do you attend RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology)??

I have a friend there... he is kinda like you or you are kind of like him, however you take it.

By the way, Homeview BTV is not TV. That Sucks. It's radio. Unless you really saw it on tv.

Default About Me

I am also doing my ungrad and it sucks cause I gotta pay - "not land of free" for me but certainly "brave".

I really don't give the damn about world cricket. I follow or try to follow all the Bangladesh games. Beside some household names, I am not really familiar with many cricket players nor I care to know them. I get to know about other players only when Bangladesh plays that team. Beside everyone knows about everything in the internet era - so there is no point of "learning" and ppl actually think they are smart on messageboard. HAHA

Watching the game on TV is just matter of time as I am in Newyork.

Default Me too !

I and handle go hand in hand - no, not literally !

For those who are curious - I'm an EE manager located in Northern Virginia with one of the leading comm companies here in the US (ahem..ok I had to get that out).

Between my 11 hr work days and tending to my wife's needs (whatever they maybe), I have found in this web-board a perfect opportunity to vent all my cricket related emotions.

Oh, one other thing..

GO Tehsin - You have really matured over the past 9 months towards being a more tolerant and congenial creator ! Bow down to him !!

My first

Default About me ?

Whew, with all the oldies around, I feel much much younger now. I am about 18, errrrrr, I mean 28. Doing my Masters while looking for that big accounting job. Unfortunately, the folks from Arther Anderson have flooded the market and the Sheikh, the Mohammad, and the Ali in my name hasn't really helped much at all. *wink*

I started off the cricket site over five years ago (yep) with the first site hosted by a little ISP in Arkansas (iocc.com/~salient/). Moved it to rivals (teststatus.com - I wanted bengaltigers.com cause of all the hype about us being the brave tigers and what not but it was taken by some RBT folks) after a year cause they gave me free pix, unlimited space, a message board and a chat room.

My first member in the message board was none other then Fahmida Waliullah. Every time I see her post, it reminds me of the good old days. Met Rajputro through the message board ofcourse. There were others, don't want to name names because if I forget to mention them - I'm dead. That site also hosted all the teams (still probably has one of the best Indian cricket sites out there) but unfortunately the network had to drop most of us.

We moved over here early this year. Had to set up thewhole thing all over again, tried to save most of the old members but lost half of them (our performance on field caused most of the ....). The other site had a whole of of info, news, tours and articles (I used to write a whole lot which I haven't in months) that are still locked in a back up cd somewhere in my desk.

What else, I am in Texas, DFW to be exact. Only 10 minutes away from Six Flags (haven't been there once since I moved to Texas two an a half years ago). If you're driving through Texas, give me a hollar and will try to give you a Texas size welcome (Yeah right).

Default Tehsin = Pilot

Faka mathe goal marlaam. Muahahahah.
(scored on an open goal)

Even though technically Pilot was born on February 02 of 1976 (one of the FEW Bangladeshi cricketers not born on the month of December - you didn't notice that slip by BCB, did you ?) almost all Bangladeshi players are a couple of years off from their real age.

Therefore, here it is:
Tehsin = Pilot

(Look at all our player profiles and note the date of birth on each. Is it coincidental or did BCB do a pretty bad job while faking those birth certificates)

Ahem.

I thought I was always like this. If you don't hurl abuse at another member or talk down to them, you are number one in this board. It's same today as it was 3 years ago.

(dhonnobad for the support)

Never been there.

I've only moved to Texas in 2000. Missed me by a few 'bhaiya' (khek). Let me know the next time you pass by.

By the way, I have plans to move to Virginia/Maryland (if I get a job there), so who knows.
