Have you never heard of the Oliver's Woofing Theorem?

You have now ended any hopes we would have had of a win.

Do you not learn from the past how woofing can destroy careers and talents?

The biggest example is our own Ash. And remember how Sohel almost killed the career of Big Z? So far Shakib seems to have good mojo and is thwarting all sorts of shenanigans by the woofing gods. But - who knows for how long.

Shame on you Asif.

You are Lord of Refuse. Do not bow to the King of Slime, the King of Filth, the King of Putrescence. Boo. Boo. Rubbish. Filth. Slime. Muck. Boo. Boo. Boo.


What is Oliver's Woofing Theorem

Oliver's Woofing Theorem states, in a nutshell, that in any given athletic competition (team, individual, amatuer, professional), the team/player who is the most over-hyped/over-praised by his/her/its fans/supporters is doomed to LOSE the competition. For example, if immediately preceding a game between the England and the Australia, the Barmey Army fans state that "England will kick ***", while only one Australian fan makes a similar claim, then Australia is guaranteed a win by the ubiquitious and omnipresent Gods of Woofing.

What is Woofing?

Woofing is any outlandish, outrageous, inflammatory, ridiculous, unsupported, sophmoric, or otherwise brain-dead commentary or predictions regarding a specific team, player, or athletic event. Comments such as "Tampa will kick Dallas' ***!!!", "KKR R00L!", "Paki SUCKS", or "Sri Lanka will CRUSH Bangladesh like a grape!" are all considered to be woofing. Woofing does not include rational, well-thought-out, well-supported commentary. Thus, comments such as "I think Bangladesh will beat the West Indies, because the last day will turn and Bangladesh have spin as strength" is NOT considered woofing.

Yup it's a done deal, we have won the test against a very strong WI side. Now we can live with this win for the next few years

Sarcasm aside, I think any win is important regardless of the opposition as this helps build confidence and also gives something to the supporters to cheer about.

The BC board has scheduled an emergency session tonight. There is only one agenda for the meeting. ATMR. We will be delivering the horse's head tomorrow. The concrete shoes have been ordered.

Let's make this wager a bit more interesting, shall we? Perhaps Asif's mod right at stake?

It would be difficult to win the Test with two (Shakib, Rubel) and a half (Riyad) bowlers.

Bangladesh need couple of early wickets with the new ball to have any chance. West Indies is playing with only 4 specialist batsmen. Couple of early blows will be the deciding factor between a win and a draw.

We shouldn't be too cocky bro, remember what happened last time when someone opened the India thread we were humiliated. Anyway let's just keep it low. Sorry no mean to offend you.

This pitch is too good for batting.We need 300+ lead tommrrw.
Without Mash it will be hard to pick up all wckts within a day.
May be it'll be a draw.
