Because people let their personal animosity get in the way of reason. So that's why we have all the threads about embarrassment, worst ever, best ever and what not. Let alone thinking everything is black and white some only swing between the zenith and the nadir. The nuances are lost to them.

Sometimes of course that nuance goes out of that window when say Pakistan plays Bangladesh or if we are talking of compassion for Ashraful. Strange world it is.

Zia is not the best opener we know. But in the last game we needed an engine/tempo to chase that total. Zia provided that courage and sent a message to the other players. It's not the amount of runs that counted but it is the way he hit those sixes. It was a message to the NZ.

How much interest this current tour of Bangladesh has been generating is debatable. It's not been one of the more eye-catching, nor, anticipated series our team has been involved in.

It was probably summed up quite nicely when, last Tuesday night, my wife and I switched over the TV to the ODI. My wife's first reaction to seeing the cricket was: "The Black Caps are playing? Oh, nobody would even know this s**t is on."

Fair reaction, I thought. However tonight's game does catch my eye and holds a lot of interest.

Tonight is a must-win occasion. Yeah, I know, it's not a decider, the series is gone and it's not a game for survival because ... well ... the series is gone. It is, however, a game for dignity and credibility.

I am not being disrespectful to Bangladesh here or even the Black Caps because Bangladesh are a reasonable team now and not an easybeat - but a drawn test series and a whitewash in the ODIs is not acceptable and approaches hang-your-head-in-shame time.

I refuse to buy into the ever-growing popular opinion that we should not be getting upset any more by what our cricket team does - because I expect better and, more importantly, if they believe they are as good as they think they are, then they should believe a loss tonight will cause public outcry.




So what we have now is a must-win game with genuine pressure. It's is not a situation in which the Black Caps have performed overly well in the past. Every so often, they have punched above their perceived weight against England or Australia but ultimately lost the crucial games; this time they must play for their respectability against a team they should beat.

With players like Martin Guptill, Jesse Ryder, Daniel Vettori waiting in the wings and Kane Williamson rehabbing, this is the time for the young guys to show they can play under pressure which is a desirable quality for the selectors. More importantly, it's the time for the senior players to do what senior players are meant to do - perform when it matters.

There are no excuses tonight. They cannot blame their build-up because they have enough cricket behind them and they certainly cannot blame conditions because our cricketers play so much cricket on the subcontinent nowadays.

Rustiness as an excuse, as used by captain Brendon McCullum, is not valid either because, if they believe they are as good as they say they are, even a rusty performance should be enough to sneak past the Bangladesh challenge.

Rustiness should not result in a 40 run-hammering as in the last game.

Richardson shows no respect to us. Arrogant remains an arrogant. He has been drinking too much of wine lately I guess. And the word shi* pronounced by them? Oh yeah...when we will beat them in their own backyard in 2015 then you will see.

Richardson doesn't sound much like a wine drinker.

I never thought I would witness Banglawash 2.0 from a hospital room.
We pray for a long, healthy, and productive life for her.
