I am posting what the players already knows. That is: on paper they are not supposed to beat teams like India, but in any given day specially in ODI anything can happen in a single game i.e. they are not out of any hope. Bangladesh is underdog. So there is no special pressure for them, but there is a chance for them to be heroes.

What whatever I or you are saying here and other posts have no effect at all to the players even they read our posts.

Its not fan's doubt ... its fan's realistic expectation out of them. Beating India is still doable but every thing needs to fall in our favor. And I trust our players brains and that's why I am not worried. Thanks god they are not as smart as you are, otherwise they will also start trying to make something out of nothing. At least, I think most of these players have better grasps of logic 101

Few points:
1. The whole country including myself is still supporting the team
2. This is no pee-wee league, this is the WC. The players should exactly know the real situation. Keeping in the dream land is not going to help.
3. Instead of preparing themselves, if the players spends time reading these message, then we are already in trouble.

So you think your comments represent any 'team SPIRIT'? Do you realize what you are you are preaching: " Do what I say don't do what I do". You are the one here breaking the team spirit among the fans here, trying to make issues out of nothing. So do us a favor, show some team spirit first and try to unite the fans here instead of divide before the game.

Banglacricket is not for debating and fighting all time.... Show some SPIRIT for a change.... your character is becoming more and more repulsive as I engage convo with you other than team selection....
Look who is talking about team spirit!!!! One final request. Concentrate on your own character and try to identify your repulsive trends instead of concentrating on others. This is the only way you can make a difference (if you want).

You pointed flaws in his argument..but in sport isn't it so much more enjoyable when you are ignorant of your teams actual form in the build up to the match and when you watch and BD does pretty well, it only makes you feel better. I don't care if most of the time I feel bad cos my hopes have ended up coming to nothing, it's those golden moments of life that makes it worth living. I don't know about you guys, but thats my opinion.

What you are saying is called DOUBTS in thy love!!! Never will there be happy ending in such cases!!

Bangladesh WILL reach round 2.
philosophical nonsense turns into scientifically tested observation over time as science catches up with our minds.
its more essential for the players to have that genuine belief without doubt, which they never lacked less than current time. in a story in bhorer kagoj, they interviewed each player about the world cup. when asked to pick the favorite team to win the world cup, a good number of them chose bangladesh.
then again, all the players will choose bangladesh when this interview will be done on the preset of the 2011 world cup.

i'm sure you know about studies done about thoughts affecting life in general. here's a site that talks about discrete patterns of crystal formation after freezing water affected by different thoughts. here's a bit more unbiased look at the whole thing.
so yeah, internet is one of the ways to get our support through to our team. just the fact that we are rallying behind them boosts their confidence.

err...i thought that was the point. if there's a thread made about predicting who would win the world cup, i'd choose bangladesh. if we weren't playing in it, then i might have bothered with that educated guessing bullcrar.

heh. thank god our players are not as logical as you are (as much as you wish them to be). if they are thinking like that, THEN we are in trouble.

fazal bhai, i'm just pulling your leg. but how can you not see orpheus' point? this is a site for bangladeshi cricket fanatics. we are on the verge of the biggest thing there is in the world cup, and our own team never looked better. the guy expected everyone to be full of that dream that makes you see sumon holding the cup in his hands. this silly little prediction game was to be just another way to show how nuts we are for our team, choosing bangladesh to win over india (which is clearly a dumb choice if we go strictly by odds).

oh No shovon, you have taken on Fazal ... you are in trouble now. The guy's limitation is logic 101... He will not comprehend upper division logic...

Eventually it will get to him....God forbid if Bangaldesh loses and he comes back to this thread to gloat his acute predictions.... he will know exactly what we were talking about...or maybe not... lol

Ah, I wish if we were in the group with England and Newzealand.
See how easy it is for Australia. They just need to win against Scotland and Holland to go to the next round

How can I see orpheus' point when there is no point at all? Don't fall into orphy's trap. He agrue like my 6 years old nephew and has a foul mouth like my 80+ years old grandpa.

Who said I am not going to root for BD against India? Please reread my message in this thread to get the fact straight. I just spend $100 to split the cost with my firend for mainly watching BD playing against India and Sri Lanka and some weekend games. For most of the other games I will be at work or out of state. Why do you think I spent that money? Hoping to see BD loose or Hoping to see BD win?

I know some of you guys wanted to pull my leg for a while. But wrong timing my friend. You guys really dissapointed me.

You guys are over-reacting.

If a BD fan says 'I think Ind will beat BD', it doesnt make them unpatriotic in anyway.

No I fear some one in my family is turning out to be a cry baby like you. I hope the same things doen't happen to him some day, i.e being strip-searched by univ. security guard and without complaing come back home and then cry like a baby in this website.

btw if a 23 years man with 6 years old brain or a 85+ yeard old brain makes you feel proud, go ahead celebrate!!!!!
