Default Dav\'s father: what kind of people are our national cricketers?

I thought that all Bangladeshis are very emotional, well, what happened to our national team yesterday?

I read in Prothom Alo that after waking up in the morning before yesterday's match, everybody was shocked to hear the news of Dav Whatmore's father's death.

The coach himself was very sad and the whole team had to say sympathetic words to him before the start of the match.

After reading Prothom Alo, I'm feeling really ashamed of our whole team. Except Shahriar Nafees & Mohammad Ashraful, nobody else had shown enough sympathy towards the coach out of respect to just try to play as well as they can, so that Dav Whatmore would not feel 'guilty' in any way.

But look at what our team did - what kind of people are they, anyway? Don't they have any respect for the coach's father or heart?

Manusher bibek bole-o to ekta kichu thake. What if our captain's father had died during the middle of a tour (with due respect, I don't know if Bashar's father is dead or alive).

And today is the next game - I don't think there will be any vast improvement in the mentality in our team in the space of just 12 hours.

I vote this one as the most ridiculous thread of the day

DW is a professional coach who knows very well what is the nature of our team, capabilities of our players, and what were they up against. He may be little disappointment with the result, but I don't think it will be too hard for him to accept it.

If he were so emotional, he would have hung himself long time back.

Was this the example of professionalism?
Dhik BD cricketers if the reason behind the collapse was the personal loss of Dev or any one else.

This kind of collapse is definately not gonna be a surprise for Dav. He knows what our batsmen are like. Besides, Dav's dad is on life support and he's still alive.....and our prayers are with Dav and his family..

fwullah probably meant to say that for the sake of Dav's father as well as to make Dav proud in his absence, the Tigers should have been more resolute and gritty in their performance against England.

Well, I think they made some statements though by playing out the whole 50 overs today without losing all the wickets. It was definitely an improved performance considering the fact that throughout the whole tour they struggled badly against England. Our boys continue to try their best to adapt themselves to the English conditions and attacks. They already gave us something to cheer about and be proud. I think Dav feels the same way too.

I think you are way too emotional to be productively thinking. These are professional cricketers. They don't play well or bad because someone's father is ill or in good health. They try their best all the time. What is at stake is the reputation and pride of a country and you are too worried about an old man in Melbourne. While the players of BD were sympathetic there is no more meaning of this event.

Fahmida is one of our class members. But I reckon life in Dhaka today was a tad bit slow.
