Or a knock on the head.

It's not ZImbabwe's fault we lost.

Of course it's their fault, they beat us fair and square when we expected them to be overwhelmed by our world beaters.

What ever the issues Zimbabwe batted better than Bangladesh in the test. I think a few umpiring decisions didnt go our way though which would have helped us but Zimbabwe had nothing to do with that.

I remember when England lost to India badly in Tests in India (cant remember whne), Alec Stewart blamed it on the pollution and food in India. And I guess some of us might be doing the same.

However not to digress from the fact is Bangladesh's batting and missed catches let us down which should be more of a concern.

You are right, i wonder what would be our tone if we had win the test match. We should not disguise our own fault under other's incompetence or unwillingness to help us.
But the good thing is none of our players have officially complained about the issues rather it is us who are making it big and noisy by learning from media!!
Hoping that the in next test all the issues will be sorted out.

"The line belongs to the umpire." This means that the foot has to be behind the line, even it is by a hair.

That particular decision was correct, but there were other incorrect decisions against BD that you expect the international umpires to get right.

You are right about 3 and 4, but I don't think many people were complaining about that to begin with.

Don't apologize for the commentary, I loved it personally. Biased but fresh and un-scripted like no other.

On a final note, I really came in here looking to see you lamenting the fact how most people haven't given credit to the Zim players( including me), and rather went on a spree of self bashing( be in merited or unmerited). I thought that would offend you the most.

I know that you said this in jest, but ZimFan is not Boycott or Sehwag.

I do believe that playing on the same pitch with such short break is unfair.

Seriously mate, if you felt someone posted a racist/derogatory remark about you or your country, please report it to the mod.

I don't think the outcome might have been different regardless. And none of the umpiring decisions would have made any difference to the outcome.

I think most sensible fans here like and appreciate Zim cricket and fans over there. A few postings over the last few days shouldn't make it any different

Dropped catches and rush of blood had to do more with the loss.

I heard there are no racism in Zimbabwe. Is that true? I am honored to have lost to rhodesia if that is the case.

Zimfan is a little baby.... We can't criticise his beloved country. Why not? If we feel hospatility wasn't enough we express it.... Fix it instead of writing open letters on how you are hurt. No body give a damn...

BD team must not get conned out of their share of the petrol mine on the property where the hotel is.
They discovered the petrol mine first!

Its time to fight back. I say use this filter...

Quote:
The incredible filter so powerful it turns Coca Cola into water (though you probably wouldn't want to drink it!). Filter on the water container developed using Nasa technology

This plastic water bottle is fitted with a Nasa-inspired filtration system so powerful it can turn cola into clear, colourless liquid, the manufacturers claim.
ÖKO's 'advanced filtration water bottle' draws on technology originally developed by Nasa to ensure the drinker's every sip is 'pure, fresh and clean'.
This video footage of the bottle being put to the test shows it being filled with brown Coca Cola which, after being poured through the special filter cap, looks exactly like water.

... extract the petrol out and bring it back home.

The level-2 filter can be very useful while traveling in areas where water quality is questionable. Maybe I'll get one when I visit Dhaka next time. I'd leave it in Dhaka when visiting Rajshahi!

About the commentators, they can support a team, but it should not show too much in their commentary. The ZIM commentators has been failing miserably in this.

Dean Du Plessis is the best Zimbabwe commentator.

I dont know which guy Dean is, but they all sound the same and are annoying. How many times did they bring up Jahuruls drop catch. Thank good Jahurul didnt score a century. Chigumbura bowling in mid 130's? Graemme Craemer prodigious leg spinner? Meth more swing than James Anderson? Appreciate their enthusiasm and love towards the game, but dear broadcaster 100+ million people are watching from Bangladesh, at least put a few neutral commentators. Not sure how many of Zimbabwe's 12 million would be watching
