    I can't wait for the team to get bashed by all the other teams in the Super 8.

    Bangladesh's win over Australia was better from a feel-good point of view because it was so out of the blue, but from a cricketing perspective their win over India was far superior. Why? Because people said they have a chance of winning, they themselves said they have a chance of winning and should win if they play well, and they did.

    Big difference.

    Anyway, not going to get into a debate or anything but I just thought I'd make that clear.
    TBH that just irritates me. They were never favourites - they had a chance, yes, but they've always had a chance. As my comments before the game showed, I was kinda hoping those building them up beyond their worth would get their comeuppance. Instead they were made to look like geniui.

    As I say - before anyone gets too excited, let's wait and see the Super Eights. You'd imagine they'll beat Ireland, as they did Scotland in 1999, but if they get thrashed by everyone else (the game against England is especially key) it'll be hard to take the India win too seriously.

    As I say - we'll wait and see.

    Bangladesh needs the pace of this guy to change their fortunes. If not in next match (as South Africa are good in dealing with pace and pitches in Guyana are slow and low), he should be picked for the last three matches in Barbados.

    Can the Bangladesh Team get some credit now? How many of you can say the India game was a fluke now?

    we have waited and we have seen...Bangladesh are a genuinely dangerous (but not consistant) side at the moment.

    Ahh, but you do realise that Ashraful should of been out early, so on the golden rules of first-chance average, South Africa won today. Proving Richard was not wrong about either Bangladesh or Ashraful.

    I don't think he'd say that South Africa deserved to win - he never actually gives credit to the team that drops a player because it is within their control. He might, however, say that the fact Ashraful was dropped means that the result should be credited as South Africa losing it, rather than Bangladesh winning it.

    no it wasn't they knew they could be them and they did. They also knew they could win today and they did. No flukes here.

    no, that doesn't say ****. It happens in a lot of games when a player should have been out and bla bla bla but they still get credit and so it is just a stupid reason to take the credit bangladesh deserves away from them.
