what i have noticed about us (BD fans)
i've noticed that if bangladesh loses a match, by whatever margin to a non-test team or by a large margin to a test team, we the fans become overly despondent. similarly when we win a match, everyone starts predicting BD beating teams like India, Pak, S Africa, Windies, etc. this kind of feeling is natural yet unhealthy. this advice to all fans is going to be beneficial: don't read too much into individual BD results. instead, look at the bigger picture. where is BD going.
i was devestaded after the asia cup, but it didn't last long. i realized that since the whatmore era, it was only the second failure out of 6 tours/tournaments. that means that 4 were successes. treat the Asia cup as an anomaly not the rule.
its okay to feel good about the wins against hong kong and ireland, but lets not get carried away thinking that we can automatically win against the big boys. I am confindent that on our best day we can beat anyone, but just because we beat IL without playing our best doesnt mean that WI or SA will be 50-50 matches.
we the fans must think realistically and then we will see that BD has made vast improvements, and that we are capable of beating everyone. but don't expect wins all the time from this team.
