Thumbs up The THANK YOU thread

5 match warm up. Won 2, lost 3. Our team had some batting practice, had some fun, some success.

Once again, Bangladesh matches were completely ignored by cricinfo. Once again, the 9th ranked cricketing nation was left without any coverage. Cricinfo brings news of women's cricket, blind cricket, minor leagues, even school cricket. CI covers Scotts, Netherlands, Canada, UAE, Kenya, Bermuda, Ireland ,Nepal and others. The only top ranked team that they ignore is Bangladesh.

By now, we at banglacricket have bit of a history of collecting scores and updates of our matches through "unconventional" sources. I have had to do it a number of times and I could tell you a few interesting stories of these adventures of the past 10 or more years.

Thanks to our loyal fans, volunteers, well-wishers, our team management and even the kindness of strangers, we were able to get updates of these five warm up matches from Darwin. I wanted to acknowledge your efforts here. Not in any particular order:

Rabeed Imam - Our team's Media Manager. This young man works extremely hard. Reliability is his middle name, always a pleasure to talk to him. Many of us are already familiar with his superb abilities as a sports writer. He has already accomplished a lot in his young life. A true gentleman. I had a chance to meet his family also – beautiful Mrs. Imam and son Sayam. He now has a second son - recently born. Congrats Rabeed. We hope our team continues to reap the benefits of your service long in to the future. This wasn't the first time we called upon him for help.

Nasir Ahmed – Our team analyst “Nashu bhai”


bujhee kom - Zaved. Your enthusiasm is touching. BC is proud to have you as a member.

Other bc members:
Cricket_king
nsd3
Kalpurush
MohammedC


The people at the Gardens that helped Zaved with the scores:
Ian
Scott
Sarah
Rex

Tehsin - Thank you for organizing it
Miraz - Thank you for stepping in at the right time

In the Aussie land:

Rex(Deryck Hunt) - Ground announcer at the Gardens
Jason Bremner - Community Cricket Manager - NTC
NTC - For trying to get live coverage permission from Cricket Australia.

Forgive me if I have forgotten anyone….

Cheers all. Let’s get ready to enjoy the upcoming series.

Thanks to everyone involved. Thanks to everyone not involved (even CI). Had they started commentary we wouldn't know we have "shob Janta" in our ranks . Some of the Aussie folks wouldn't know how crazy (in a good sense) we are.

If only the players realised their own potential and the game itself.

Since we are doing the THANK YOUs. Let's start the BLAME GAME as well. I'd like to put the whole BLAME on Billah bhai for instigating and managing the whole thing. It all started with an email from him. He made the first contact with RI and a gentleman named Rex from the NTC ground.

Billah Bhai, THANK YOU!

Thanks every body. Had I not signed in to this forum last year before the WC, I won't know that Bangladeshis are running the best cricket forum in the world.

I would like to thanks every body involved with the live update including Billah Bhai, Tehsin bhai, javed, Mohammed bhai and all the Bangladeshis and Australians involved with this process. I would also like to thanks every body involved with BC from the very beginning.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE HERE AS A FELLOW MEMBER.

Default salaam and love from pagla zaved

ai hai, e ki bolchen boro bhaiera! keno khamakha ei lojja dicchen!!!
apnader bhalobasha, dua ebong booker taan amar patheo! ami kichui kori nai!
just made a few calls and bugged those kind and gentle folks (sarah, rex, david, ian, scott, nashu bhai and the others) at the ground every now and then! if mohammedc bhai didn't get the phone # and info i wouldn't be able to do nothing but wandering what's going on out there! also much thanks to al-furqaan bhai for initially start the threads and also razi bhai, cricman bhai fro starting those threads! but at the end it was full of pleasure - why? because of you guys!

dearest masum(billah) bhai, mohammedc bhai, razi bhai, cricket _king bhai, poor fan bhai, auntu bhai, mijan(tigers_eye) bhai, nocturnal bhai, asad (al-furqaan) bhai, kabir bhai, omio bhai, tehsin bhai, obayed (kalpurush) bhai, warwolf bhai, asif (atmr) bhai, banfan bhai, pundit bhai, dhakablues bhai, bd-blast bhai, without you all i don't exist! you all are truly my family!
honestly bhais and apas, everyday all your laughters, jokes, game analysis, make my otherwise misserable/depressed/ anxiety stricken life a little bit more tolaerable and joyful!

we are grateful that banglacricket.com exists today and thus we have a platform and voice for the development of cricket in the land of our beautiful bangladesh! we are here and we will do anything, anything at all for the encouragement and improvement of our tigers and cricket in general in BD!

i am getting a little emotional and choked up here, so a moment please... we love our boys! we stand by our boys - no matter how bad they play or what whatever they fail to achieve - we stand by them. for example, i am so excited and at the same time anxiety stricken about todays first ODI that i am kind of all over the place, rambling! all i am telling myself is no matter what happens tonight, we will continue to support, love and pray for our tigers always!

love and peace!
go tigers!
go bd!
cheers for banglacricket.com!

always yours,
-zaved

p.s. have you all noticed that we have a new boro bhai joined bc yesterday called 'bujhibeshi'? i almost had a heart attack seeeing his/her first post in another thread! thank you rifat bhai for the head's up!
ke bhai apni? salaam and welcome to bc! apni jei hone bhai, atto prokash korun!
hey, is this one of you guys messing with me?
