    True that, we fell short even with 120 on the board. Well done :yep:

    P.S. It's really nice to see such good-spirited cricket fans here like you guys - it's really bad on social media, particularly Facebook, with disgusting name-calling and such.
    At the end of the day, it's just a game :yep: A lot of people seem to take it far too seriously, though

    You should see what it's like in India. Not so much Pakistan cause we're used to losing. But people sometimes hold protests burning pictures of the players on live TV :rofl:
    While I do find that funny, a large portion of the Bangladeshi fans are just as bad - Shakib is being called India's 12th man even though the guy won us so many matches before! Proud of Shabbir though, I think he won man of the tournament?

    And at the end of the day, you're making money off of the game, seeing as you own a big name IPL team :rofl:

    To be fair we were almost knocked out of the 1992 World Cup in the round robin stage..
    hearing 40 year old pakistanis using 25 years ago as an excuse for the crap team being witnessed today doesnt hold anymore sadly, miracles is not how to win consistently, treating cricket like a job is the way to, which the whole team barring amir doesnt do.

    Urgh that's terrible. Shakib is a national hero and people need to acknowledge that. Everyone has a bad day. I remember when they stupidly bowled Saeed Ajmal at the death against Australia. Naturally we lost because of a bad decision like that, yet people blamed Saeed Ajmal for the loss when you shouldn't be bowling a spinner at the death. Poor guy even cried.. :cry2: He's such a nice player!

    Yes Sabbir was very good

    Hey - I'm not defending the performance overall by any means. I'm just saying it is possible

    :facepalm:get whooped by bangladesh and india, yet will win the WT20? you should run for PM with that much optimism sis



    How many times have we lost against Bangladesh? Losing from Bangladesh was a shock, right? Well, they can give us another shock any time by winning WT20 too, bro.

    My strategy is never say never. The kind of unpredictable team we have, anything can happen. And with optimism and courage, they can win! If you don't believe that you can win this, you eventually won't.

    Firstly, cool down, bro. Its only games.

    Secondly, this is my issue with many Pakistani fans that I know even in reality that they are extremely negative about Pakistani team. Surely, its understandable to some extent given the kind of performances they've been giving in the past couple of years. However, the kind of person I am, I always try to look at the positive side. I know that Pakistani team has shocked me many times when I did not expect anything of them and when I did expect of them. My personal view on this is to be positive. Surely, be critical as that's required to be progressive. But never lose hope.

    The way Bangladeshi team progressed in the past couple of years was not something many of us expected considering their performances from a long time. I'm sure they were positive and worked hard hence their performances have been good.

    Also, don't forget all those times when Pakistani team made us proud. I'm sorry but fans with negativity makes me angry so much! Be critical but hopeful!
