    I think we all have our own sort of individual test rankings, with usually our own nation top and arch nemesis last and various other teams ranked according to various reasons such as player appeal, playing style, (cricket) politics, etc.

    Really? I don't think I've come across many people as devoted to anything as Zorax is to Bangladesh cricket.

    Zorax' devotion to the Hong Kong T20 Blitz the only close thing that springs to mind tbh

    I'd rather be known as that than a jingoistic bigot who cannot appreciate teams they don't share a passport label with.

    What an absolute load of bollocks.

    So I support 1 team and 1 team only....that makes me a jingoistic bigot? Doesnt mean i cant acknowledge the success of teams i dont support.

    My original point was about the accusation of bandwagoning when I said anyone can cheer for any team they feel like. Restricting people based on national/passport labels is bigotry.

    PEWS used to cheer for Zimbabwe at one point. I cheer for Afghanistan/Bangladesh. Zorax cheers for Bangladesh/Hong Kong. Tec15 cheers for South Africa. Let people cheer for who they like. Period.

    For what it is worth, according to the new Wisden, 2016 domestically Warwickshire had some of the lowest attendances percentage wise. Far worse than comparable grounds, e.g. Old Trafford, Chester-Le, Headingley.

    Yeah, what an amazingly devoted Bangladesh fan whose support never wavers. Definitely not a band wagoner who abandons ship faster than the proverbial rat for team BCCI when circumstances change....

    Don't know how Tec goes about his day constantly sucking on lemons. Should be a misery thread just for he and Beavers. If someone walked on water he'd get on here whinging that they can't swim.
