Default Read Andrew Miller's new piece on Bangladesh "When glory got away"(mentions BC:))

Heres the first paragraph
Quote:
For the first time in six years of Test status, Bangladesh have finally succeeded in silencing their critics. Sadly, that aim has not been achieved solely through the brilliance of their performances. After the chaotic events of the past fortnight, the world has simply been rendered speechless by what they've just seen.
and a middle Paragraph
Quote:
At banglacricket.com, the highly respected discussion forum, one recent thread led with a post-mortem of the series and a set of gradings for the players. The maiden centurion, Shahriar Nafees, picked up an A+ for his gutsy contributions, but his top-order colleagues, Mohammad Ashraful and Javed Omar, were both saddled with grossly unflattering Fs and demands to be dropped. To the neutral observer, their most serious crimes were that they allowed the occasion to get to them. Ashraful in particular, who scored that brilliant matchwinning century against the Aussies last summer, can't help but attract brickbats with every new failure.
heres the last
Quote:
Those are the bare facts of another series when glory slipped through their fingertips. But with no more Test cricket for the next 12 months, Bangladesh can now refocus on its favourite form of the game. A solitary win in this week's three one-dayers, and all their sins will be forgiven. Even Ashraful's.

Good one! A few days ago someone was complaining about AM's biased articles against Bangladesh. Can someone forward all articles by AM for a quick reality check?

I as much love to cherish the memory of this series for the rest of my life as I love to forget. Then again, as Miller put it eloquently, "A solitary win .." ...

Even I, the "renowned AM-hater" - as I have gained my "reputation" here, have to admit that this was a very nicely put article by AM.

BTW, those of you who don't know, I don't hate AM. I just didn't/don't like many of his writings where Bangladesh is mentioned in a unnecessary negative way.

This current article, on the other hand, criticizes and evaluates Bangladesh truely professionally. IMHO, this is probably one of the the best that has ever been written in CricInfo about Bangladesh.

Thanks, AM!

I loved the picture beside the article, it somehow manages to say a lot than words can say. Most of their heads are down, and Bashar's hands are on Rafique's shoulders and Mashrafee is looking up. Perfect combination I must say.

AM does look like a friend. He is just as frustrated as us. At times, criticism is needed. But it must also be constructive and the message hopefully gets transmitted to the relevant parties. Otherwise there is no point really.

A very well written column by Andrew Miller with all the passion of Bangladesh cricket and amazingly has all the emotions of fans.

This is the article which truly contains the facts of the series. I was a bit disaapointed when saw the verdict by Osman Samiuddin from Pakistan but this one by Andrew Miller is awesome. Hats off to Andrew Miller.

I have never seen a Cricket forum gets that much attention of the media (first bangladesh newspapers and now CI), it certainly shows our passion for cricket is appreciated by the media. I am really proud of being a part of such an wonderful forum.

It goes to show how well respected this forum is and how each one of us contribute to the cause.
We the fans will probably get more respect for our passion in the cricket world but our team has not been able to match that yet. Our team needs to build a better fighting attitude than they displayed in the 2nd test. What is the difference between us and aussie team? May be 15-20 weights on talent; but alarmingly a 10-20 weights on application. All our players must want to work harder and smarter to win and all the fans should encourage them to push farther. These players are the second generation (almost the first) of our cricket in test arena to make a mark for our country and it is not going to be easy. They will have to work twice as hard than the ones to follow. We should empathise with them but not make them soft.

Great piece by AM... perfectly depicting the frustrations of the BD fans. He really knows a lot already about how the BD fan's minds work. Thanks to him.

And I must also add... that BanglaCricket forum is probably among the best cricket-discussion forums in the world in terms of member's participation and quality of discussion. All credit goes to the members .. thanks a lot everyone. And I am not saying this becaues I am a member of this forum... this is my honest personal opinion. In general, People here are not really biased or flying high in the air.. huge majority of the members are actually quite knowledgable and think in depth beyond what the bare eyes see.
