    Where did this come from?
    its been on my mind a lot recently, needed a place to vent, as no one here in china gives a ****.

    (to be fair, no one on the internet gives a **** either.. but atleast doing it here wont piss off and bore the people I see every day!)

    Quickly scanned the first half. What has the black lives matter protest done - apart from raise awareness?

    kind of a wierd thing to say? "What has black lives matter achieved, aside from one of its main objects"

    My point in using it as an example, could have been replicated by replacing it with any racial inequality focused group. I chose to use BLM, as its the most recent/in peoples mind.. but any group serving to gain eqaulity for their spicific race, would equally fit the bill as a good example of the merits of collective thinking and group identities. its a small part of a larger post about a bigger idea.

    true, but Id expect that most people would not hope to change a pretty complicated societal problem, within the space of a year or so.

    Anyway, its here nor there to the point of my rant - which was at the pros/cons of an individualistic society.

    No real excuse. The game was there to be won and we had 2 experienced players at the crease. 10 overs from the final over isn't too tough. Rahim did well to get 1 4 4 but then terrible to fail to take 2 runs from 3 balls.

    Hard to explain other than they let the situation get to them. Just needed to bunt a couple of balls and steal singles instead of trying to smash for 6 and win in style :facepalm:

    I think we were going out of the tournament anyway but would've been nice to screw over India at the same time.

    Whilst still a poor decision, I can understand Rahim looking for the big shot. Mammadulah(?) was inexcusable, all he had to do was drop it into the leg side and you were guaranteed the super over.
