Default Bad cricket, best forgotten

Bad cricket, best forgotten.An article from Cricinfo.com:
http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ci/c...ry/295466.html

What do you guys think of it???

I think we definitely should have atleast tried our best to reach the target but still we got a draw and I am happy for that!!!Supporting Bangladesh no matter what but a bit dissapointed though!!!

I think the author smoked ganja before he wrote this.

I don't know, but for some reason, I have a feeling that the author lost track of what he was trying to say. Anyway, poor writing I would say.

I think this was his best piece so far. Reread the last paragraph. A damning indictment of both India and Bangladesh.

I think so too. Finally found some good understanding of the game of cricket from Mr Monga in this article.

As it says at the end:

A more experienced side would have gone for this target; then again, a more experienced side would not have been set this target.

Totally disagree. I thought he pretty much nailed it in the head. And the title too is good and telling.

I would not be surprised even if someone, someday come up with ... "BD never took the challenge or never looked like". Rather I wonder as if this Monga guy visited our forum last night.

Ok, I'm still bummed that we took the cowardly route out instead of giving India some serious worries but Utpal Shuvhros piece is a mighty good piece of apologist writing

I thought it was an article right on the money.
Neither team played good cricket ( beside SRT, SG, Mashrafee and Shahadat)...
and none looked like winning ...

The writer had the article all summed up very good.
