    People may continue to under-rate Bangladesh but this team is coming together nicely over the years. A lot of these players are the same players who were battered around the world as youngsters but now they are coming into their prime.

    Another step by reaching the final

    Pakistan cricket is finished.

    I said this a year ago and people assumed I'm Indian.

    There is no hope for the future.

    My cousin is on the U19 UAE team and he always tells me how, even though he regularly experiences defeat when playing against world class teams, he absolutely loves his spot on the team. Because imagine just being a normal kid and getting the chance to play against world champions-to-be. It must be a brilliant experience. Same goes for the UAE normal team.

    I'm sure they have loved this tournament and will go home to their families with lovely stories to tell. Remember many of these lower down cricket team players (UAE) have normal jobs as well

    If they actually make it to the tournament despite the PCB being full of drama queens threatening to pull out, then I'm sure we will be kicked out very soon...

    Yeah, I saw that. Hopefully, you don't get pulled out of it though. The tournament will be much better with a team like Pakistan (no matter how badly you are playing right now :lol:).

    On the basis of what I've read in the news recently, I don't think they'll pull out. I understand that they're just waiting for security assurances from the Indian government :yes:

    I'm particularly looking forward to the big clash on the 19th

    I think my team is VERY unpredictable. If I am to be logical, I would say not good chances for Pakistan in T20. However, my dil says #GoGreensGo! Overall, I think I can't say anything as Pakistani team is not predictable

    Yeahh, that's fair enough. Big tournaments need an unpredictable team like Pakistan to make it more interesting, so hope they improve their level in the WT20 (a little, at least ).
