They are playing just to live the luxury, that's the problem.
Said well.. but maybe that is where our mental blockade is.
The whole nation of BD has been frustrated and deprived by the system and the politicians for so very long.. that our 'Patriotism-Spine' is crushed almost for good!
In my view... the cricketers are doing far better than many other sectors of the country... atleast they do tend to have the emotions left in them every once in a while! (even though someone may argue that they are 'well-paid' enough to be patriots!!)
IMWO.. being raised in this country which has been going down in terms of hopes and dreams more and more every day...does effect their confidence and mental strength atleast a little bit!!
So maybe.. just maybe..it really will take them long to find permanent belief in themselves and then rise as a really strong Cricket Team in the scenario of world cricket!!
I do hope and wish that time is short enough for us fans to retain our own hopes for the nation as a whole!!
Personally, I myself, solely want to see the rise of a whole new generation all over the country
and the nation... changing the total scenario in a huge way!!
Call it a dream.. but thats what I still have atlest!
