Default Bangladesh Fans, who would you support in the match between India and Pakistan on 16th June ?

This is my question to the neutral fans who enjoy matches between strong teams. Like I for example was rooting for Bangaldesh against SA even though I had no dog in the fight .

I am sure that whenever we watch a match between two neutral teams we always have a favorite for whatever reasons, like cheering for the Underdog, Favorite Players, Friendly Country.

So who would you be rooting for between India and Pakistan?

Thanks.

I want to know the country that various Bangaldeshi Cricket fans would support in a contest between India and Pakistan, which should have no bearing on my Nationality or the team I support.

Some fans would rather say that they support my country or some would say they support the opponent to spite me off so it's best to keep it irrelevant.

The only thing I would like to mention is that I always support Bangaldesh unless they play against my team.

Thank you for your support brother. I used to support Pakistan when guys like Wasim Waqar, Saeed used to play. Then I started supporting India after seeing Tendulkar, and Dravid (after Wasim and waqar retirement). Nowadays, its too boring. Dont get the excitement

Did Pak ever beat Ind in a WC match? How can you drop 5 catches on Tendulkar alone out of all people?

I have never supported Ind against Pak on a cricket Match. I supported Ind against Eng, NZ and that is about it. I admired few players.

Back in the days, I had supported Pak against Ind, Eng, NZ when there was no BD cricket team. Now, I don't support them at all.

So now, against Ind vs Pak, I turn off the TV. Maybe, I would check the score card next day. It really doesn't matter to me who wins or loses.

Bangladeshis don’t care nearly as much as Brazil vs Argentina

There are clear lines between Brazil fans n Argentina fans among Bengalis.

India pak.... doesn’t really matter in the end.

This Brazil-Argentina rivalry in BD is a product of market economy outraged by our nincompoop media.

Before Maradona there was only three teams,

Brazil





Italy
Germany

That's it.

love this response. if washed out, wont be disappointed.But wont pray for it.

indian fans are much more irritating than pak fans, so is indian commentators, media and their influence on ICC. in that sense, my 10% support will go for pak team (supported them in 1992 WC)

I will support India for this match as they will clearly make the semifinals and want Pakistan to be neutralised as a threat for that 4th Semifinal spot which we are after.

Ditto! Same here. Dont support anyone of them. Used to prefer India to win as they were lesser of the two evils. These days India has become as big of an evil if not more than Pakistan

I have family that are from both countries.

I will support India for a similar reason. If Pakistan looses Bangladesh has a chance to go up to the 6th position in the ODI ranking by replacing Pakistan.
