Default The not-sore loser thread

Yes, I am disappointed. But I am also happy that Bangladesh made it to the quarter finals. Let us not be sore losers and ascribe every bad (and yes, some were rotten) umpiring decisions to cheating or other nefarious deals with the devils. Let's face it - the better team won today. I will congratulate them and hope my remaining favorite team Australia beasts the undies off both Pakistan and India. The Bangladesh team will leave the cup with reputation not just intact but elevated. Be proud.

Allhamdullilah I feel the same way. A team that did poorly in the warm up games and came so far was an achivement and with 2 less batsman (Tamim/Kayes/Animal Hawk). We have Mahmadullah who scored back to back 100s in a World Cup. We have bowlers that can regularly bowl in the 140s and get reverse swing.

Hope Australia or New Zealand win the World Cup

Alhamdulillah. I am glad (not happy!) by the team performance. Let's build from here.

A transparent and well organized BPL is a must now. It installs tough competitive mentality in the team. Our boys barely play competitive games except international matches.

Good wc for us.

Found the new Mahmudullah at the top scoring tons back to back, maybe needs to come one down and Soumya at 4. Soumya done well too, maybe a position too high, especially when the ball is new and bowlers will target to bounce him out.

Kayes has to be thrown out for good.

Tamim needs to lose weight, watch his old game and start scoring big, least big 50s again.

Taskin, Rubel bowled 140+ plus, constantly, with Rubel being the fastest. Good signs in the pace department.

BD chased over 310 runs and stil hold the biggest win by chase in the WC


Plenty of positives to take from this WC

NOW.. WE move on to the future. THINGS looks good to me. Providing, we keep grooming these bunch...

Agree 100%. I wish we had put up more of a fight in this game, but we are quarter finalists FFS. Last year, we couldn't even BUY a win...at home...against Associates!

Bad umpiring decisions are part and parcel of the game. Shakib got a favourable lbw decision in the first game against Afghanistan even though the ball was pitching outside off-stump. And the run-out of Chris Jordan was questionable (benefit of the doubt would have gone in his favour in most other games). That's just cricket.

So instead of whining about s*** that makes us look like real losers, let's celebrate the fact that Bangladesh cricket is finally on the right track again.

And congrats to Team India.

Outplayed by a better team. Our chance was only if india had a bad game and we had a good game. Unfortunately the opposite happened. India will take some stopping this worldcup! Their batting juggernaut will continue posting big totals backed up by good pace bowling and fielding.

No doubt that this was our best WC.

However, when you reach QF, it is just too difficult to not dream about SF and final. I am a practical person, I knew my team's ability, and yet I was so pumped up for this match that the loss has created a big void and I am at the moment struggling to shrug it off.

I had a big hope that we would win the toss but that did not happen. When you are put to field first at MCG, you need firepower like SA, and we do not have that. I think I will just take a break from cricket altogether for the time being.

Hopefully AUS or SA will lift the cup.

Ah, the sane thread.

First of all, guys, well played. Disheartening as it is to lose out, it has been a commendable performance and a noteworthy journey. I don't recall anytime in this world cup that a team playing India had a match so much under control by 30 over mark and i am quite sure that if BD had maintained its intensity, and with some help from lady luck, we would've seen a far nerve-wrecking match.

This team has come a long way from what we as non-bangladeshi BD supporters were used to see and observe. You did well to be in the knockouts and you displayed that you have it to make it all the way, todays result not withstanding. A special honorary mention goes to the Bangla attack that performed well beyond everyone's expectation. Two youngsters - Taskin and Saumya Sarkar - if they maintain their focus, have the potential to really make it big in the coming days.

Yes, BD got the rough end of that one umpiring decision. And the truth is, such decisions do have bigger impact on smaller teams. This is with due apologies for those who may get offended by the term "smaller teams" - i don't mean in any demeaning way. I am saying this for my own experience as India fan - we recieved short thrift from many an umpires - some biased and some inept - causing us heart-breaking losses match after match - and today's "bad decision" was nowhere close to many of those that i am talking about. But in this day and age of third-umpires, such a controversial decision should be surely avoided and rectified. Don't see why the decision shouldn't have been overturned by a third umpire intervention. And the impact such decisions have cannot merely be measured by numbers - they have deeper cuts.

That said, it is farcical and pathetic for fans to scream "bias" and "BCCI" and "ICC" conspiracy behind today's decisions. India looked the better team and played better too - and i would say that even if i were to take off my India-boots. The bad decision does leave a bitter taste even in the mouth of India fans since no true fan likes a "qualified" win and no fans like anything to take the credit away from their teams achievement.

I had said before - May the best team win. And there is no disrespect when i say that BD was the second-best today .

2015 : first time KO round
2019 : first time semis
2023 : first time champions ?

2023 is only 8 years from now, many of the current 'promising players' would hit their career peak around that time - the sarkars and taskins.

slow and steady wins the race.

We had them where we wanted - 120/3 ish after 31/32 overs. I felt terribly let down by Mash in this match. First off he gave away a first ball 4 which helped calm the nerves of the batsmen. Then every time we got them on the back foot he'd come back and bowl a few overs and release the pressure, not to mention setting defensive field and allowing batsmen to take easy runs and settle down around the 32 over mark. He did not lead from the front yet he kept yelling at bowlers who were trying their best. Another big let down was the fielding. We leaked an extra 15-20 runs because of our fielding. This is the one time where Mash's mindset hurt us more than it helped. I think Mash wanted to win so badly he put unnecessary pressure on himself and the team. If he could've taken it easy India would've crumbled under pressure.

But yeah congrats to India on the win, now I expect my other teams 2.South Africa or 2A.New Zealand - rooting against the three heads of the hydra - to take care of business from here on out.

Agreed with the Doc. The better team won. We didn't bat to potential, but of the 4 games at MCG during the tournament, we had the lowest 2 margins of defeat. Small take away, but lets not forget the horror form we came into the tournament with (12 game losing streak in 2014, losses to AFG and rank minnows like HK, lost even won matches, lost all 4 warm ups before WC with poor batting).

Youngest team at the world cup...again. We have a fine nucleus of players to build on. Just a few more spots need to be nailed down. The Test team is equally settled. We will do big things in the next decade, inshAllah.

The better team won -no doubt. I was really impressed by the class of Rohit and the "new chapter" of Indian pace dept.

We should be very proud, too. Did well but, unfortunately, on our biggest day played one of our worst games.

The day our people learn how to take loss as a loss and learn from that loss, we will be worthy of lifting the cup. In other words, as long as we have to open the "not-sore loser thread" to congratulate our team, we as a nation are not worthy of lifting the cup.


Positives from the tour: Taskin & Soumya's revelations, and Riyadh and Rubel's transformations.
Negatives from the tour: sloppy fielding (need 200 pushups for lazy half-assed offer), Kayes (wth is he still doing there?)...
Still undecided about captaincy: Mash brought aggression, but his decision to bowl full 10 overs @ 7+rpo was ugly.


PS: DJ - good to read your post after many, many months.

Kabir,

It is both an honor and a privilege to be able to post among the most passionate fans the game has ever seen - and how i would like to post more.

That said, i have two kids now who are growing fast, and in between them, they leave enough time for me to take restroom breaks

Happy with overall World Cup Performance Well Played Bangladesh

Need to Start Movement Against Poor Umpiring...against Bangladesh It could have been a much closer Match, had these dumb wrong decisions been not there..No Ball was a no brainer...and it's called by a Pakistani umpire, Perfect Recipe for conspiracy theories; Any way, Congratulations India...

I thought the Indians played with class. Compared to the teams that was filled with legends, this team showed respect for their opposition. That's all we can ask for. Well played India.

Well played India. Congratulations to them.

But but for bad umpiring. Bad umpiring let down India too as there would be a few questions about umpiring for this match...which makes the win a bit bitter IMHO.

Congrats to the Tigers to be in Q-final for the first time as well.
