BDFlag Never Stop Believing!

Hello everyone! This is my first post on BanglaCricket, so please bear with me if I make any rookie errors!

I'm posting this because I have something to share with my fellow cricket fans from Bangladesh. It's something that we as fans have so often lacked when our Tigers head out to the field. Not that it's anybody's fault, really... in fact, our Tigers themselves lack this one, FUNDAMENTAL thing that could mean the difference between glory and defeat.

I am talking about BELIEF.

How often have you seen a fellow fan throw his/her hands up in despair over a wicket thrown away? Or a ball smacked to the boundary? How often have you felt that chill up your spine, where you start to think - despite all attempts to suppress such thoughts - that perhaps the game is lost?

That perhaps we don't have what it takes? That maybe we are not meant for victory?

Well, here is the thing: the team feeds off our emotions. They can feel it in the air in the stadium. They can sense it. And if they feel that we don't believe, then they start to doubt too.

So we must show them, for our part, that we will NEVER STOP BELIEVING in them!

And this, my friends, is what I have to share with you all:



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LBD-xL_GR98

Please watch this video. If you like it, then share it. Comment on it. Let other Bangladeshi fans know how we feel about the team. Let the WORLD know how we believe in our team.

Maybe, just maybe, our Tigers will come to believe in themselves too!

that was awesome, specially the ending. Thanks for sharing. I think we just need to cool down a bit. Our team have a lot of things to figure out, but I still believe in them.

I really like the video although I never lost my belief in tigers. We need to spread it all over through social network.

Hollyy cracka-jacka!! That is a masterclass video! I have goosebumps all over my body, and I got tears in my eyes! I mean this is the best video ever created for BD, no, this is the best video every created on YOUTUBE! No this is... I am seriously lost for words. I know people say that a lot, I used to go "what do people mean by that? How can they be lost for words! Use the dictonary". I know what they mean now. I am seriously lost for words.

I was about to say, "It's DONT Stop Believing, not never stop believing." Because I thought you'd put together some pictures and used the song 'Don't Stop Believing', and I was about to correct you

I say you pass that onto JF or Pont, and request them to show this video to all the tigers

I don't know if you know this, but we have match threads for every match. And by the 15th -20th over of the last match, member present number went down to 130 from 200, then to 35 by the 40th, and there were more Indian fans present in our own territory.

BDFlag Spread the Belief!

Wow! This response is just... phenomenal! Thank you all so much for the kind words!

My friends and I at Maverick Studios have been doing our utmost to spread this video through Facebook and, to a lesser extent, Twitter. Posting it on this forum seemed like the logical next step. And I'm SO GLAD that we posted it here.

Please, share this video with every Bangladesh Cricket fan you know. I am dreaming of a situation where in EVERY match, win or lose, from now till the end of time... Bangladeshi crowds will be chanting "We will Never Stop Believing" (or something like that). Can you just imagine the effect that would have on our players?

So please, share this with everyone! This video is for the fans, and for the team. It's yours.

I've already PM'ed Ian and Julien, in the hope that they will show this video to our players. If we can inspire them through this video... well, we really, really couldn't ask for more!

Sincerely,
Sidrat Talukder
Maverick Studios

I am glad you posted it here.

Ian Pont's Q&A Thread
Julien Fountain's Q&A

I don't know if JF or Pont checks their PMs in BC, they probably gets those a lot. So here is there thread, that'd be the best way to get in touch with them.

A warm welcome, Sidrat!
Excellent work on the video. Very poignant, symbolic, precise and inspiring.
