I'm getting slightly emo about tomorrow's game. Maybe it's because Bangladesh is back at the place where they sent India packing three years ago, and beat South Africa while they were at it. Although I don't think they are going to achieve something wonderful this time around as well, just because they are in the Caribbean playing a world cup again...a little part of me is hoping for that miracle.
Hence this video. It was made for the team during the 2007 World Cup. I love this video because a) it's on cricket b) it shows Bangladesh from a different perspective, one where the people are not dying, crying or engaging in corruption. Sadly, the bad things that you guys constantly hear about the country exists as well, but I thought it would be nice to see a different side to the place, for a change.
C'mon Bangladesh! It's Pakistan in a World Cup. We have been there before..and won! Let's have a repeat of that win tomorrow!
This excitement and hope is genuine. I promise!
