Default Bold Predictions Thread

This could be a potential field day for trolls, lol. But here are my bold predictions:

Bangladesh will be a top 5 (or close) ODI team by the 2019 World Cup
Bangladesh will be a darkhorse for 2019 WC
Bangladesh will be a top 8 Test side by 2020
Bangladesh will have the best pace attack in Asia*
Ireland will win the Test Challenge in 2018

* barring the discovery of Wasim 2.0 in some remote Punjabi gaon

your previous bold prediction was Anamul will be the first Bangladeshi 50+ test avg batsman, well we have one..not anamul but the other Ul Mominul..so in my view it came true(not totally but still counts)


My bold prediction: BD will win the T20 cup 2020

Lol, thanks. Yes, I did say that about Anamul. In terms of scouting talent, that was a fail. But in terms of Bangladesh producing talent it was a accurate prediction. We got a fitty batter all the same.

My bowling prediction is that Taskin, Mustafizur, and Jubair will be our first truly good Test bowlers. Sub 30 averages. Lets see how that goes.

Would be great but T20 just isn't our cup of cha.

now a days its very hard to have a sub 30 bowling avg, specially when we'll play most of our matches on flat tracks, long gone the days where every legend had bowling avg close to 20

Tough for spinners to average sub 30, that would be quite an achievement, hope it comes true!

Are you saying Warne, Wasim, Murali, other legends wouldn't have sub 25 averages today?

I also think they're averages would be higher if they played now. Not sure how much though.

Wasim Warne would have toyed with today's batting units which are lacking seriously in technique. Steyn is the only one comparable to the past bowling legends

We'll also make the semifinals of the 2017 Campions Trophy. Might even win it!

We'll win the next Asia Cup (if/when it's in ODI format)

Sri Lanka will not win an ODI series against us in the next 5 years.

With all your bold predictions there should be a disclaimer.

1) If the current coaching staff stays.
2) No injuries.
3) Couple of new players pushing the older ones out the door.
4) Mash is able to transplant his brains to the next captain, since he will not be captaining in 2019 WC.

What if Haturi jumps ship? That's his native land. How long before they win then?

Not just me...we were all on the Ash bandwagon...even the likes of Fazal. Till 2008, Ash was the best BD cricket had produced.

Asian Conditions...BD should be safe. Plus won't be easy to bat for 8 overs vs Mustafiz + Shakib. One good or bad over can decide a 20-20 game (which is just 1 reason why the format sucks).

Its a possibility. But Hammer likes the Dollar, we're good cuz SL would lose in a bidding war.

But I agree, I don't think SL have the same level of talent that we do.

Followed by another 'dark age' for us while we scramble to find a competent captain!
