Default A Special Thanks to Sri Lanka!!

We have seen many threads on recent BD Vs. SL series but thought we need to open a completely separate type of thread in BC.

Being the weakest link of test cricketing nations, it is for sure we need support from other countries to go ahead and develop further. Don’t want to say that we are not getting enough support from others, but have to say, there are still few other countries who are negatively criticizing us right from the beginning of our show. There is also lacking in cooperation for our development. One of our neighboring countries has not yet allowed us to visit them and play against them at their home. They have an excuse of very busy schedule. Well, it is for sure that we can’t blame them or make them liable for not allowing so. But at least, we can show them the example set by our true cricketing friend – Sri Lanka!!

We know how busy their schedule was during last five/six months. After playing against BD at home last year, they have continuously traveled to IND, NZ and AUS. They flew directly from AUS to BAN to play this series. Being a BD fan, we would like to convey our gratitude to all Sri Lankiness for playing this series against us after a very tiring season. A very special thanks to Sri Lanka and thank you so much for visiting us.

We wish that our relationship will be strengthening further in future. And also hope that your cooperation in international level cricket and other age groups/A team cricket will show the path to other cricketing nations (specially our neighboring countries) how they should behave with newcomers!

Yes, thank you Sri Lanka!

I thought West Indies also is like a friend to us - not neutral.

In addition, Zimbabwe have not been like a Big brother - they never acted like Big Bros, until very recently - that they are reluctant to come over here, which is obviously because of their internal problems. They never acted like Big Bros when they really WERE like Big Bros when they were on song, on top of their form.

I initially included Zimbo's in the friends sec,but given their lastest performance and not maintaining connection with the board while giving news to outside sources,i included them in the big bro section.
