Default Criticisms/predictions/odds against Bangladesh at World Cup 2015

Just wanna keep a track of all kinds of predictions and statements made against Bangladesh prophescizing our unsuccessful World Cup campaign. Can go over them and analyze these once we end this campaign and check the ultimate veracity of all those remarks.

To begin with, here is one from Andy Zaltzman.
"If Bangladesh do make it through the group stage, which is improbable, the chances of them overcoming the vast probability of defeat for three consecutive knockout games are roughly the same as those of a wildebeest turning up at the Serengeti at the end of a long, hard migration with the ice cream he bought from a snack vendor by the migration start gate still intact and unmelted."

Very nicely written article that one. I enjoy his articles.

He also says this about bangladesh:
" However, on the plus side, 100% of all previous World Cups in Oceania have been won by a team from the Asian subcontinent which had never previously lifted the trophy. That is a cast-iron fact. For the next few weeks, at least."


So dont count out BD so soon.

Saltzman -only funny thing about him is his three stooges like hair. He is out of touch with everything else.

Tom Moody before the match started against New Zealand

"Bangladesh is a team that has not improved in the last 10 years, when Sri Lanka came about we couldn't say the same thing in the 1980s. They might have even gone backwards". later tweeted congratulating though. Still does not lament the fact that he is generally biased.
