Thanks guys.

Hopefully in decades to come, we and the world will be commemorating in the same regard and doing the same for some of our current and developing Bangladeshi players.

Martin Crowe is not an anyone in cricketing world. When BD didn't play Intl cricket, most BD cricket fans supported Foreign individual players or teams. He was one of those who cricket fans admired for his stroke play and attitude. NZ pulling over their weight was fascinating to watch or listen.

RIP Martin Crowe you will always be remembered. You were the BEST I ever bowled against and a top human being. - Akram

"Technically he was absolutely fantastic. He had a presence at the crease and if you combine that with the cricket smarts he possessed you're going to have a pretty good package. It's a pretty simple formula, and he had it in spades."
Former Australia captain Allan Border told the New Zealand Herald

My champion, my hero, my friend. I will love you forever. RIP M.D.Crowe.— Russell Crowe (@russellcrowe) March 3, 2016

"You could draw a parallel between the way he batted and Greg Chappell. He was such a beautiful, elegant batsman and a terrific stroke player. When he was going, which he did plenty of times against us, there was no more difficult man to bowl to....We had our tussles in the middle but he was always the first bloke through the door for a beer at the end of the day. A tremendous human being, and I couldn't speak more highly of Martin Crowe than anyone, particularly from an opponent's point of view, on the field and off it."
Former Australia fast bowler Craig McDermott

I can always ask. Asking is the right thing to do. You have a choice not wear it.

There wasn't a BD international team back then. He retired in 1995.

May his soul rest in peace.

I do not know much about him while may have seen his batting when young, but I would respectfully disagree with OP suggestion. Black band is more in terms of national crisis, or world wide emergency.

Did you know that his brother, Jeff Crowe, is acting as a referee in the Asia Cup? He was a referee in the India - UAE match, wow.

By the by, aside from being a phenomenal batsman, he was also a thoughtful writer. Zaltzman's obituary referred to this article written by Martin Crowe from a couple of years back and I recall reading it back then too: http://www.espncricinfo.com/magazine...ry/786989.html

"The gap. This is the space between thoughts, between breaths, between fielders, between balls. They say to experience the gap wholly brings ultimate joy in what we do. In the gap there is nothing, and it's that nothing space in which lies the secret to our purpose.

As I contemplate the meaning of much my life, a life I now truly treasure, with dangers lurking, it is in this moment of nothing that I feel at peace. Awareness has taught me that previously I was always too quick to fill the gap with judgemental, premeditated masking and conditioning."

Just because he's a great cricketer, doesn't mean his death would have to be honored any differently! May he RIP, but if we wear black badges for him, we should wear for many farmers or scientists or doctors or engineers that die everyday somewhere on this earth.

Humans appear and disappear, but life goes on, so will it when you, I, we all from this forum, die one day.

Then why remember/show tribute to the dead at all? Eventually everyone would HAVE TO make that journey, no?

The thread/suggestion:
Because you care for others when they are alive, you show respect when they are gone. That what makes us human and not a BOT.
