Have to face reality though. We don't deserve to be in the tournament.

How can you consider a team champion when they are almost certain to forfeit.

Money and power is more important than playing the game.

SL might be the dark horse if Linga is back on form and fitness. He may have lost his sharpness by a fair bit but he can still win them games. They have a promising group of young stars and they have a habit of silently winning games while no one is noticing.

NZ have a deadly team with in form Guptil, Williamson, Neil, Santner, Southee, McClenaghan, Boult. In English conditions, they have all the skills and combinations to beat any and every team

Of-course its cricket and anything can happen. But chances of BD winning is very dim.

Having said all that, BD is a very improved team. No one should consider it as a walkover. If I were Haturasinghe, my immediate goal would be to win the 2018 Asia Cup. Then try to reach at-least semi finals of the 2019 WC in England. And the ultimate (main) goal which you all should be targeting is to win the 2023 WC in India. You have 6 years to develop a team and the tournament will be played in Asian conditions. Now that is a realistic target.

Your team in right track...All the best

India was a very strong team in mid eighties (then I was a little boy). There is no doubt in that. Although that aura of grandeur declined after 87 World Cup loss in semi final, they were always been a batting powerhouse teemed with charismatic players. Only bowling had failed them in nineties and after that MSD had rejuvenated this side to an invincible one.

After Australia India is the 2nd best limited overs side in the history of cricket. Bangladesh is yet to go a long long way to get compared to a team like India. Stop this futile comparison.

I'll be more than happy with couple of '' Shommanjonk Porajoys' in the upcoming Champions trophy.

Our group is too tough.

"Shommanjonok Porajoy" is a phrase which will soon become obsolete in our discourse in this forum. Please come out of this dooms mongering attitude.

Hmm, tough days are ahead for cricket, all it needs is some backdoor diplomacy and a little flexibility from both the sides, but since Manohar is acting like a stubborn SOB and using his ICC position as a shield to settle past scores we may very well end up boycotting the Champions Trophy.

Looks like England are firm favourites to lift the cup. They almost won the tournament back in 04 – made it to the finals I believe.

I disagree that India are the 2nd greatest ODI side of all time: that title belongs to South Africa. India are probably 3rd.

I'd be happy if Bangladesh can beat Australia – we only beat them once before back in 05. Actually, Bangladesh struggles against Australia more than any other side for some reason. Bangladesh has the toughest group – unarguably!

Rankings state that South Africa are the best ODI side in the world, yet many are not rating them to lift the trophy, and I'm not surprised because South Africa have never won a major tournament as of yet.

Don't wanna derail this thread, couldn't help but respond, care to explain how is SA is the 2nd greatest ODI side? How many ICC trophies have they won so far? Perpetual Chokers is what they are, heck Pakistan and WI should be ahead of SA in this regard in their own rights. Now if you are counting meaningless bilaterals and paan masala chaap try serieses then I got nothing to say though,

England, big favourite to win and I believe this New England side at home, especially, even better. It will be hard to stop England. Least one of my teams will win it. So all good!
