Default Dhaka- Quarter- final turn out.

As you all know that Pakistan vs Windies will be in Bangladesh.

I heared that Pak vs Eng warm up match attracted 25, 000 people however due to Bangladesh being out, some may have lost interest in the wc.

I was wondering of what will the attendence turn out be?? Will it be house full or not.

And whether Bengalis will be supporting Pakistan or not?


Thank you.

It will be housefull for sure. Pakistani fans will be going to Dhaka plus most bangladeshi support Pakistan for some very odd reasons. Thanks god the match isn't on the 25th/26th March :/

I dont think that it will be a full house, I am pretty sure that no one will be supporting the Windians after the thrashing they gave BD, also, the way they threw away the match against England, thus ensuring that BD was knocked out from the QF. Also, a lot of Bangladeshis hate the Pakistanis.
Two hated teams, why would people waste their money?

So, I guess all the tickets have been sold out long ago. People were hoping to see a QF involving Bangladesh. But now that Bangladesh are out, a lot of people will decide not to go. Especially the SA vs NZ game may not attract too many people.

My question is, if the officials see that the stadium is largely empty, will they allow people without tickets in for free, or at least allow them to buy new tickets to watch the game? I'm asking this becasue I couldn't manage to get hold of any tickets for the WC, and I want to watch at least one game from the stands.

Not only there is a huge fan base in Bangladesh for Pakistan cricket team, but in this case I reckon there'll be an even bigger support AGAINST the West Indies team for thier part in our failure to reach quarter final. My prediction-Full house!

Whats wrong if someone likes to support Pakistan cricket team? Please dont mix politics with sports. I may support Pakistan cricket team but that should not and wont make me any less Bangladeshi...( I am not a Pakistan supporter )

I say half empty, I doubt many BD'is want to waste 8 hours after their own team crashed out of the WC. Mirpur is a Cursed ground for BD.

The stadium will be full and for good reason, this match will surely be more competitive and exciting than the WI vs BD and SA vs BD match. I don't support Pakistan but there is nothing wrong with BD people supporting Pakistan, the Pakistani cricketers have nothing to do with what happened in 1971. None of them were even born back then.

Would have been fantastic if it was Pakistan vs Bangladesh, this was the one thing I wanted. I didnt even get that.

What has Pakistan cricket team got to do with politics??

What happened in 71 is regretted by all Pakistanis. It was the dirty politicians, military and has nothing to do with the general population.

I dont understand why we have so much hatred towards Pakistan cricket team? does this team has anything to do with 71? Do the general people of Pakistan have anything to do with 71? The answer is NO. It was their army and those Razakars who were responsible for the genocide in Bangladesh. I say hate those Razakars, hate those army officers, hate those blood thirsty politicians that were responsible for killing innocent Bangalis..As a matter of fact I do the same. But if I say I hate the Germans or I hate the German Footbal team because of Hitler, I am sure most of you will call me stupid. Isnt it?

Between Pak and Ind people in Bangladesh supports Pak more, as far as I know. Pak used to be their team when they didn't have a team to support at the Pro lvl. But I've also seen people hate on Pakistani team for unrelated reasons, they are very mature people.

For me, I could careless. Ind v Pak is overrated. And those players did nothing, NOTHING to help the Indi-Paki relation. When they are playing, they should try to bring the countries and people together, bring some peace, but know, they act like regular crowds.

And between those 2 I dislike Pakistan team more, mainly because of their lack professionalism. They are a big mess. They are always on the news for the wrong reasons.

Its freaking cricket, not war. Heck I'm not even a big fan of their cricket team but I want to see a Ind Vs. Pak semifinal so ya I will be supporting Pakistan cricket team for this match. So that makes me a traitor in your book? ha?

One time I photoshoped a Pakistani flag for one of my friend. let me guess that made a traitor in your book too?

Its a freaking game, that's all, nothing else.

I dislike Pakistan cricket for other reasons i.e ball tampering, match/spot fixing, rashid latif, rudeness of the players, drug taking, rashid latif etc list goes on

Infact whats there to like about them? I have nothing against the nation or its people but why would anyone support their cricket team who are a bunch of druggy cheats?

Many Bangladeshis do support them sadly..most probably because they are our ''Muslim brothers'' ..think that says it all really..

I think people like Pakistan cricket team because of Imran Khan and Wasim Akram. As a matter of fact cricket started to become popular in BD because of these 2. (Remember 1987 World cup?) "Muslim brothers" just dont cut the ice..
