Default If we don't make it to the QFs...

yes, its going to be disappointing. yes, it might be a "failure" of sorts. but lets not be angry at least.

the pressure of winning at home was going to be intense, the boys have been through a lot. 58 all out in a game we were expected to win, and then coming back from the dead to win.

we will beat the Netherlands, no doubt in my mind. I'm not being complacent, but we know how to pull through. if we only set them 150, we'll win. if we concede 350, we'll chase it down.

In the event, quite likely, that we finish tied with somone on 6 points, we're most likely not going to make it due to our Net Run Rates. yes, it is the fault of whoever (we don't know the culprit so not point speculating) decided that playing India on an aircraft carrier was a good idea. yes, it was ashraful's fault for us collapsing to 58 all out and failing to beat Ireland by 250 runs.

But all along our aim was to win 3 games, it didn't matter who those 3 were, and frankly England are a better scalp than the WI. Everyone knows that.

So even if we don't make it. Lets not be angry. There's no reason to be satisfied, but there's no reason to be angry. We are the youngest team of all 14 teams, and we're learning the ropes. So if we don't make it, lets look to win the AUS series at home.

And if we do make the quarters, then believe that everything is possible.

I don't think I was as angry after the 58 a/o as I was disappointed. After 19 years of heart-break, you'd think someone would get used to failures and that's probably what has happened - I do believe this team can win on good days, but I also know that failure is a very likely outcome of every game we play (not rocket science). I mean let's not kid ourselves, we are still a pretty crappy side with major issues.

I will be extremely disappointed if we don't make it to the Quarter Finals, but extremely angry if we end up below Ireland/Netherlands on the points table.

For now, I'm really enjoying where the Group B contest is headed. I'm going to watch the Netherlands game with optimism and pray and hope that West Indies beat England. Even if that doesn't happen, I'm going to watch the South Africa game with a lot of interest, provided we win against Netherlands - otherwise I'll be fuming in rage and in no mood for more crap (see above).

A win against Netherlands is expected, we are ranked higher and we have more experience in international level than them as well. Finally we should give our best against the mighty South Africans and have a strong finish in that match. Even after that if we do not make it to QF, I think the team can call it a success and I will be very happy with the results of this WC. I predicted 2 wins and if Bangladesh gets 3 wins, it is more than expected of them. All I want them is to take the points learnt from these matches to the next games and apply themselves better.

as long as we win 3 games, even if we dont make the QFs, we have done the bear minimum. yeah it will be unfortunate that we can't win a tie breaker, and it will be no one's fault but our own. but such is cricket. better luck in 2015.

as long as we have won enough games to make the QFs...in my eyes, we will be quarterfinalists, and that should be enough for now.

As long as we beat Holland, I will feel fine.. since that was our realistic expectation at the beginning of the tournament (beat the 2 associate members + 1 test team). But if we loose to the Dutch, I will be back in the WI debacle mood..

very sane thread

and for the 1st time the last match for us in a WC is not a dead match!

if we win vs Ned which i think we will we we'll head to the SA game with everything to play for..we win we go through we lose we go out..then same applies for the qf

even if wi beat eng then our possible last game is the finals(qf,sf,f)..

1999,2003,2007 all last games were dead matches..we had no hope to qualify for the next round

but 1999 last gave did gave us the win vs pak!

Being a Bangladesh die-hard through thick and thin since the representative match with the MCC in late December, 1976, I've gotten used to questionable selection, totally unforced, usually batting errors, losing etc. Those things don't bother me nearly much as the lack of spirit and desire.

If our guys, as a cohesive unit, play with the type of spirit and desire we almost always see in the Irish, we may actually win more games in the process also. Hence having a positive attitude is critical for us as an emerging team, perhaps more so than others.

We may not be "as good" or "good enough" than many, but with right combination of spirit and desire, we can be the best on our day and snatch a win despite seemingly insurmountable odds. That's what happened against England and that's exactly what needs to become a regular feature of our cricket at all levels.

We're fortunate enough to have significantly better quality cricketers emerge with each generation, and ONLY when those guys grow up with that Spirit of '71 so to speak, and make it into the team from a maturing cricket culture, they will do themselves and our cricket proud. Our passion will do the rest InshAllah.

It is time to begin the begin and make our epic victory against the English into the watershed event it can be. It is time to crush the Orange and choke South Africa, and march into the quarterfinals with our heads held high. জয় বাংলা ! ...

Still not thinking of it.
2 more matches to go and plenty of opportunity to make them for ourselves.
This has been an interesting group and we could still end up at No 2, behind SA and India could still bow out of the tournament !!
Anything could happen.

Too early to think about exit, we are in this all way.

If the bad does happen, I won't be angry but disappointed. I know this team can win all the way, they proved it beating every team, even last game.

They sure can win, but will they? It will be fun finding out.

Only thing i want to see is our players fight really hard in each and every game! I was really sad and empty after the WI, but they made up for it in the game against England.

Lets beat NED and hope and pray that WI beats Eng. Win against SA will be extremely difficult.

If we cant make it to the QF (Allah na koruk) I'll be heart broken but wont be angry. But I know for sure next series e Asutraliar khobor kore dibe ei team Inshallah..

I hope and pray to Allah that BD wins against the Neds, important match, even if they do not make the QF, they have still won 3 matches. SA is tough, look at the way they beat India yesterday.
