Default Nothing to Celebrate. We wont go very far

Title says it all really. Best we can hope for is to beat WI and Ned (even that will be hard) and hope to have a chance at QF match. but we are not really anywhere near the quality of top 6

Only Allah knows how far we'll go. We can only hope and wish for the best. There're a lot of talents in the team and this team can beat anyone if the players believe themselves.

If you've followed the tigers closely for the last 1 year, you should've known this.

Really!! That is what you think after this match. The very fact that BD won the match even after scoring a meagerly 205 vouches to the fact that we will go the second round.

Look up the first class experience of the Irish players....you will be surprised!

We have nothing to celebrate. A poverty stricken country where a large chunk live below the poverty line. We have natural disasters hitting us every year. And come the ice meltdown, we might not even exist.

But we do have 150+ million proud and resilient people, except for one, who look forward instead of backwards.

We happen to feel particular joy having a cricket team that is one of the best in the world. In fact, we are in the top 8.

This same team happens to make it to something little called the World Cup. Yes, the frikkin World Cup.

This little team also might even make it to the QF. That is frikkin huge man.

And you think I won't be celebrating?

If I were in Bangladesh now, I would be out in the street yelling my head off. And I ain't a young college brat anymore.

We really need to be more discipline and professional. We may have won against the Irish, but we can learn a LOT from them.

BD may not be as good as any of the top 6 teams, however, I can see that they are not minnows or "ordinary" either.
Today's game tilted toward BD's direction with the catch Tamim took to dismiss O'Brien, who had the ability to take the game away. However Ireland's fall from 151/6 to 178/10 from that point on was not a give-away, but it had to be carefully crafted and executed by a team work that was new to me. I mean Shuvo's catch and Shafiul 4-wt haul definitely complemented what the spinners have done early to keep run rate in check. Gavaskar and Shamim reamrked about using Shafiul as counter-productive, however one might as well argue that it was Shakib's decision to resort to Shafiul's reverse swing accelerated Ireland's fall.

This is what shows that BD team is matruing and they are better than minnows , not "ordinary."

The 2 teams that are likely to win this WC are Ind and S-Lanka becasue of their batting depth and spin edge. Note that we lost to Ind, but not by huge margin.

So to secure a solid 8th place in the ODI chart BD nend to pull a win against SA, WI, and Eng. And then, they are in the 2nd round, even if they lose to N-Land.

BD are not expected to be the semi, but I will be happy as long as they show some fighting spirit against top teams in the 2nd round.

Go Bangladesh, Go...!

I'm not depressed or all that pleased. But dude, just watch, Ireland will win against West Indies who are bhua compared to the Irish. In fact, I tip the Netherlands game to be just as difficult for us. Roller coaster ride, just as Coach Pont predicted.

I'll keep saying it until somebody listens.....Our batsmen CANNOT set a target!! Bat 2nd always!!

on the contrary I get the feeling that this team has not peaked yet, the best is yet to come !

which only bodes well for the future matches of BD.

If our batsmen needed a JOLT, today should have been it. Poor batting against some friendly bowling and field placement. Not sure if it was pressure or not. BUT, here's the big but, the way we came back into this match, the way Shakib rotated his bowlers and stuck to them, the way we fielded and the way the crowd always found a way to cheer on when all seemed lost, makes you realize that we are a far better team than what was on display during the first half of the game. I see ourselves in the QF easy.

(by the way, I did not agree with a lot of Shakib's decisions but guess what, he proved that he knows his shyt and I don't and I am so very happy to be wrong on so many occasions today)

I'm not kidding you know. they held their nerves against a traditional pocha shamuk even after bungling the batting bigtime and 40 overs of letting the irish in with a very good chance of winning. that's 90% of the match ! they performed at most at 60% of their potential today and still won comfortably in the end. I think any of the teams outside the sub-continent will find it hard to beat this team on homeground.

It is a win. A win we desperately needed to stay alive. A win that seemed unlikely three fourths of the way in to the match.

Since you know we won't go far - do you suggest we just quit ?

oh and people upset about the start BD had to this WC, check pakistan's route to the finals of 1992 and 1999 and India's start to WC 2003.

I think the primary reason they performed bad was the pressure. The team knew that they had to win this match,, for West Indies there will be pressure too but they will think that they have other teams but without the Ireland win, it was going to be pretty obvious that we are not going to the 2nd round. It was a pressure play and when the batsman were nervous they threw away their wickets. I think this was required for them to get their warm up completed.

Remember Pakistan in 1992? How they limped and gained momentum? Well the Captain King Khan said that every world cup has its own momentum and the team that picks it will do the best.. So perhaps Bangladesh is picking up the momentum.. Look at the Aussies, they did better than they did against the Kenyans,, they are also getting their rythm.

I think now that Bravo is out for weeks, West Indies is even weaker and the tigers may very well take this momentum to go far. But I agree,, if we think that we can book the West Indies team in 210 runs,, we are dead wrong. We have to adapt and learn from the past two games, we need to figure out the 6-7 issue and definitely not drop Raqibul!!

Wait, I thought if we beat West Indies and Nederlands from here, we should be in Quarter Finals, am I thinking wrong?
