Default Rivalry Classic


So here comes the Big Guys of the ZIM cricket back.. instantly uplifting the ZIM team's spirits! Showing every sign of becoming the biggest rival of BD team for a good long time in the coming future... but is rivalry about Ranks/Standards/Abilities alone?

Isn't it about emotions as well?
About National Prides??
Isn't it about Strong likes and dislikes towards particular kind of people also?

Isn't it also about past wounds and huge thirst for revenge as well??

Yes... thats how emotions fly high among the fans!
That's where the history like Ashes Series evolved from.. out of Arch Rivalry..
That is why the Indians and the Pakistanis... like every other aspect of their lives, are head to head in the Cricket grounds as well..

Even our Abahani-Mohamedan Rivalry in Football (I'm sure many will remember it's heat in Dhaka Leagues) exerts huge firepower.. just because of the Level of Emotions Involved..

So ppl.. who are our Emtional Rivals in every way?
Beating which team will giv us the biggest pleasure of all ever??
Who will we like to compete for the rest of eternity?!

Let's see who we hate most...

wel... the thing about Kenya is basically 'Revenge'..
even though they hav beaten us convincingly on a number of occations in the past, I don't think they hav maintained that same standard since then. And BD has advanced as well..

I would definitely luv to beat IND/PAK/ENG... but I guess I will wait till we get to that standard.

I will go for ZIM... coz the contest is far more even.. and because ZIMs hav had good number of success in beating stronger teams, so beating the ZIMs giv BD some usefull moral credit and ranking points as well.

I know we are a test nation now and we should look forward to compete against close-strength test nations like Zimbabwe. But still I feel the most rivalry against Kenya.

I still ahte those memmories of Moris Odumbe--dancing on the field as one after another Bangladesh wickets fall down!!

I wish Kenya gets Test status someday and we could beat the hell out of them!!

I'd vote for India and Pakistan both, purely for personal reasons. Nothing would give me more pleasure than beating either one of those two teams.

I object to the designation of India as the biggest Asian critic of BD. If it wasnt for the BCCI, BD wouldnt have got their test status when they did.

India
Because India is the most balanced team in Asia as well as in world and our neighbor.
There is a lot of things we should learn from india and they are our big brother in cricket.
I hope they will be our rival in future even though we are far from there.

btw, this is my first post today, Bangladesh Cricket is great with new looks.
