Default What Brought You to BC?

In a civil and gentle way, please write a few lines about what attracted you to this forum.

I stumbled upon it a while back in 2009 when BD beat my Windies. I loved the fight they put up against this team that comprised Roach, future 2-time WC winning skipper Sammy,etc

So, I can't remember if I googled Banglacricket forum or I typed 'Shakib's name' and one of the results featured BC forum's webpage...

So here I am, approaching 8 years and 13000 posts later.

Your turn.

^^ I tend to stay away from anything that is about religion in a cricket forum.

I'm here for the cricket discussions and the comradery

To comment about players and why some don't get selected and to also moan about poor strategies during matches

Seems like a good ploy.

So there were a few BC members of that time making comments on CI?

Another question, how has the quality of comments on that site improved or deteriorated?

Actually there was a great relationship and communication between BC and CI before. Miraz bhai, Abu bhai, Rabeed Imam they were the veteranos who pioneered article-publishing there before I made it trendy. :p And then Isam came and exploded onto the scene.

No. BC members weren't making comments referring to BC. In fact CI commentators would sometimes give shoutout to BC and that's how I noticed it.

Funny thing is the simple idea that Bangladesh cricket might have a forum didn't even run through my mind (and perhaps many others) so I never even bothered to Google it.

BC is kinda low-key, inclusive to elite (lol) and I like it that way. Last thing Tehsin should do is sell this to BCB for 8 billion dollar revenue and completely crash this site with every frikkin tom, dick and harry joining the forum all the way from Nilphamari riddling the posts with expletive laden Bangla cuss.. non sensical India-Pakistan thumping braggadocio or even self-loathing posts of bashing own country... (No hate against Nilphamari though) .

Those were the times when Cricinfo was Cricinfo and not ESPNCricinfo. I used to be there often before I joined BC. I was there for the scores and less for the articles(I hated reading). So I may have completely missed those wonderful articles about Bangladesh cricket from smart and intelligent people like Miraz bhai, et all.

Since, the rise in registration on this forum, we have seen less of those members mentioned earlier...

A temporary sabbathical...or like some others, left the forum for good.


So, a new culture has developed and that there are less intelligent discussions is an eyebrow raiser. There are more aggressive people in this modern world...aggressive in a sense that their online presence is somewhat alpha-male-ish.

This is turn contribute to a lot of 'noise'...

A renaissance in article publishing would be a great thing for this forum...

Hope we get those free minds soon.

It was the gateway to Bangladeshi cricket news from a country where cricket was not known. Bangladeshi media would provide very little input in term of cricket and cric info was another source.

I came as some of my Bangladeshi friends introduced it as a place for Bangladesh's game highlights. Those days were amazing as we would eagerly await the highlights and check after every hour!

It was especially important for me as I just came back seeing Bangladesh beat Australia

I'm always curious as to know how many cricket fans were inspired by this victory over the mighty Australia.

Now, that's a love story. Truly appreciated.

Food for thought, those of you going to watch CT or Tri series, make a banner and wave it around, with the BC name or something
