BDFlag Cricket, Bangladesh style

Quote:
Cricket on the Sub continent.... Reflections of an Aussie in the crowd at Shere – Bangla Stadium , Dhaka, Bangladesh

I recently had the chance of going to watch the 3rd ODI of a 5 match series between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. This is arguably ‘the forgotten series’ with most of the cricketing world focusing on The Ashes, but that still did not stop the Bangladeshis coming out in vast numbers to support their beloved Bangladesh Tigers.

Rest is here ---> http://www.thebigtip.com.au/cricket/...ngladesh-style

G'day everyone.

Did this little piece on my experience at the cricket. I have also emailed it to Zunaid and he might put it up on the Articles page here aswell.

Feedback is welcome.

Was a good day and a good win for B'desh.

Carn the Tigers

Cheers

Joe

Joseph bhai!! This is a super read! Very personal and fun experience! And all this time I thought you are a Bangali bro living in Australia!! Your writing will be such a nice piece for the front page.

Do you know Gowza? He is from there too, but seems to be amissing a bit..I hope he is okay!

P.S. Joseph bhai, want to read more of your writing about the Chagoler Bacchas and Dahl (Daail in Dhakaiya Bangla)!

I swear to God! This is what happens when I decide to stay away from BC during the finals week! And now I get dragged down to it. So tempting.

Ok here is what I had to post. While I was studying for my Calculus test, I was watching the 3rd ODI game. And I saw a white guy with one of those white Bangla Brigade Shirt (i think that's what it was). He had a camera with him. He was jumping up and down. And I was soo tempted to come to BC and make a joke, "hey who is that guy! I bet he has a blog and he will post all those pictures from his camera, and write stuff!! find him!" And I didn't!! It would have been super kool!!

Great article Joseph bro, I was also there for the 3rd ODI, and I must say the atmosphere that day was simply electrifying, it may not be such a high voltage game but TBH never enjoyed that much watching a match live at the stadium.

Thanks for the comments here and on the article page. Much appreciated.

I’ve sent it to Zunaid (Boss) and hopefully he thinks it worthy of the front page.

I was born in Australia but Bangladesh will always be my number one team.

No, sorry I don’t know Gowza.

I’ll try and write a few more pieces in the near distant future.

They showed him on the big screen, I think he was sitting near the supporters holding up each letter of Shakib’s name down near the players race.

Good luck with your calculus test, I am very grateful I never have to do calculus again :p

Thanks Razi bro.

The stadium was ¾’s full, just imagine what it will be like for the first game against India, each ball will be electric.

Yeah, the group does a great job. I've got a few invites to join them for the World Cup from a few members, shame I have to decline . Would have been a great experience.

Thanks for the comments on the article page aswell, and for the likes too.

Feel free to pass the article on friends who follow Bangladesh cricket but are not on the forum, keep up the good work.

Carn the Tigers!

Thanks for all the comments guys.

The article needs 52 more views to be the 3rd most popular article for the Month by the end of the day, so tell your friends and have a read if you haven't already.
