ICC World Cup 2011: Bangladesh's loss shocked the supporters

It seems this world cup brings no great joy for Bangladeshi team, and they have to wait few more years to dream of becoming a champion.
Prior to the world cup, Bangladesh cricket was riding on a roller coaster after winning home series against New Zealand, and may have forgotten to look over their weak areas. Though they have advantage of playing their world cup matches in their own venues, they still can not get the convincing win to prove that they are capable of lifting the trophy.

The only win they have out of their 3 world cup matches is against Ireland, one of the associates who are just playing in their second tournaments. But that win was also hard earned, as at one moment, Ireland were cruising towards victory. Thanks to some good spells by the bowlers, Bangladesh could save their pride in front of huge supporters. But, Bangladesh could not have the same luck and performance against the West Indies today. In fact, it was a nightmare for them as the whole team got out scoring their lowest inning total of the world cup. Score of 58 was so disgraceful that even the Bangladeshi supporters could not resist. There were some incidents when Bangladeshi supporters started to throw stones and water bottles at the West Indies players. The news also came that West Indies team bus was attacked with stones.

Cricket has witnessed such incidents many time. Remember what had happened at Eden Garden in 1996 world cup when India were on the verge of losing to Sri Lanka at semifinal. The situation was similar or may be harsh than in Bangladesh.

It is not good news for cricket. Cosmic Cricket knows it is hard for the supporters to suppress the emotions, but the protest should not be violent. We urge all the faithful supporters to hold their emotions and do not act in such a way that destroys the image of their nations and the value of cricket.
