Default Hope and World Cup

* Mistakenly posted on the wrong forum earlier. Sorry for the repeat. Thank you.


Hope and World Cup

I have waited for a while before this writing as I’ve been watching people nagging and crying about Ashraful’s or Tamim’s (he should be sacked etc.) and other’s inclusion in the Zimbabwe tour or even recent world cup selection. Ok, if we let these people select a team with all our consistently performing players, what type of result would you expect? Think about it. We will be playing against team like India
It was not long ago (1996) when low favorite Srilanka surprised the cricket world and became the world champion. I believe Dave Whatmore definitively gambled on that occasion. When it was a tradition to plan to face first 5 to 10 overs very cautiously and then slowly pile up runs in one day cricket but Dave gambled and Srilanka showed the world how to start the one day cricket and rest was history. Yes, Dave gambled because he wanted to keep the hope alive and he had a hope. Hope is a beautiful thing. And I salute our selection committee and Dave not giving up that hope by NOT selecting a team with only our consistent performers (you know what I mean), a hopeless expectation. I congratulate them for taking the challenge. I congratulate them despite probable heavy criticism and pressure, showing the guts and for giving us hope by selecting a team which is completely capable of beating any team in the world on their day, just like Srilanka. I see a parallel. Hope is a beautiful thing. If we loose, I’ll rather loose supporting a team with some hope, not any other way. Would you not?

imahmud, please clean up your post, it's very hard to read.

Also, all World Cup related posts must be posted the ICC World Cup 2007 forum. Mods, please move this.

Grasped your point completely. And yes, I support Dave 100% in this case.
