Default complaint

i have a problem with the ODI Fantasy cricket rankings.

i am tying with four other people on 105 points yet i am ranked at number 20 while another is at 17. i believe i should have priority over these people as it was I, yes I, who won the Test segment. i think i should even get a few extra points because 1. i WON the Test segment and 2. for being myself.

i also have a problem with the distribution of points. how was i to know, even with my all-knowingness, that Khaled Mashud was going to be almost killed by Brett Lee(though i shouldn't be surprised, he seems to have to kill at least one person per match)? also, i think that the other Mashrafe-pickers would agree that it's not our fault that he is just too good and therefore has nothing to prove thus resulting him not being chosen for the second match?!?! and i'm sure my fellow Tapash-pickers would agree that Hasibul was hogging the ball the whole of todays match and that it was because Hasibul has something to prove that he wasn't chosen in the first!hmm who else did i pick...oh and Habibul and Alok. well...um...then i refer to the above point number 2. which, being acknowledged, should result in me getting double the points for both those players.

and i shall conclude by saying no one should pay any attention to this crap as, after watching today's performance, i am bound to post some sort of bullsh!t like this. thank you.

I can't take all these bragging!! You better be a girl (are you?) - If you are I can tolerate it because the way I look at it is... She got lucky with her arbitrary selection - after all what does a girl know about cricket! So it's sweet!

But if you are a guy - then I can't stand this! (well I got excuse for that too ) I can't lose to a f****** guy! Like that di**head Eminem says: "Success is my only option, failure is not"

Damn Bull$hitting is contagious!

Damn these teenagers .. They make one lucky pick and think they have won the world .... On second thought, she did win the test segment and thus has complete bragging rights on the board. *sigh*

If only I could see the future, I would have prevented her from entering the test phase all together, picked my lucky five players and won the first one and be on cloud nine. MUHAHAHHAHAHAHHA.

Maybe I can still do it ... All I gotta do is put some pressure on the powers that be and have nasif recount the whole thing, over and over until he "invents" the "right" method to put me in my rightful place as the winner.

hey both of you, that's not cool!

one says i'm a girl. the other that i'm a teenager. while both are true(Orpheus, last time i checked, Mona was a girl's name) they have nothing to do with anything. you two just can't take it that you were beaten by a minority.

by the way did i tell you that i won the test segment of the fantasy cricket competition?

Mona:
Thats the way fantasy works. Once the game starts no one can change it . I didn't know Pilot will get blown away by Lee and won't play, so I am stuck with Pilot also. So there you go, don't be sad if you loose the ODI

And about the people with same points, well computer just puts them randomly. So, although you are at position 20, your real position is 17th (which is shared by other 3 people). Be happy you are at least 17th position. Teenagers get the teens

And yes, you did WON the test

Mona, that's the way fantasy cricket is, ppl get injured and not picked that's just bad luck, if Sujon got 100 you would probably be complaining too, don't worry about if your 20th and someone else is 17th, you still are 17th and it's stupid to think you should be higher ranked because you won test, i'm coming 3rd and i have both Masri and Pilot

Default Mona\'s Wisdom!!

Guys first time I have noticed a woman with so much Cricketing knowledge....(Yes I am talking about the fantasy test winner Mona :P) In my life since i've noticed womens having knowledge about players physical appearance not about their playing skill..Anyway Mona might have the same trick of chosing players (Hihahahhaa)
One advice for Mona : U can easily be the female TV specialist of SONY television taking over the job of Mandira :P

Best of Luck

Shafi - there is another female here with a good cricketing knowlege, fahmida.

Mona - r u an Indian ? Mona is an Indian name. i also think that u should be 17th in the ODIs. there is still 1 odi to go. guys and girls, watch out, i will jump to the top now.

Tehsin - I am not like other teenagers. i am a much more sensible guy than others except for the fact that i believe that India will win 4-0. I did lose the competition. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Habibul_fan - Sanwars good performance improved the teams which wanted to lose and now they dont look as if they wanted to lose. shows BD is an unpredictable team.

All Amit ever asks is if ppl are Indian.....i once told him about a 40yr old Indian i used to speak to and for the next week, when i added ppl to MSN he would type in the very convo "Is this the 40-yr-old Indian?"......even if their name was Emma

Mona - I fully support u. Its not easy to win a fantasy competition and if its about BD, its even greater. Well Done Mona, first of all. U can fully brag about ur win out here and its even better considering that u r a girl. u seem to have a lot of cricketing knowledge considering that u r a 15 year old girl and there arent many teenage girls who do that. U should have been 17th. Anyways, there is still 1 game to go and who knows.

Shafi - Good Post The womens out here do have a lot of cricketing knowledge and are the best female fans around.

Orpheus - If u cant take it, then dont post it. Monas selection wasnt arbitrary. It was a tough selection and we all know that she won it. keep it up, mona. i think that u didnt read the prizes section. there it is given that u can fully brag open-heartedly about ur win and thats what mona is doing. even if u had won, u would have done the same thing.

Habibul_fan and Nasif - I c. didnt know it. And Habibul_fan, James is an Indian name.

Ummmmm, if that is sensible, then I am completely clueless.

Amit, you do understand that Mona was kidding and Orph and me were just going along with it ???? This is unnecessary.

James was NEVER an Indian name. It came about after the Brits moved in, that's not too long ago. Also, it's not a common name as well.

Amit's been trying to tell me that James is an Indian name for about a month but I'll save ragging him out until after the Australia v India series

Default WARNING!!!

I think with the low performance of Bangladesh team, we are all getting into little fights within ourselves over nothing.

So Bangladesh MUST improve OR ELSE!!!
