Our celebrations have always been on the "less-cultured" side of a certain spectrum. This is not to say that players from other nations don't have "less-cultured" celebrations. I am only focusing on BD players.

I think part of it comes from spending a lot of time on the streets. Some of our players have grown up in large towns and cities, where the streets are largely populated by sparsely-educated shysters looking to earn money, older trades-men losing on their way out, a few lucky ones with good exam results and maybe a job, and whoever the rest constitute. This is not necessarily an environment where cultured thought and discussions on literature are found common-place. It is also not an environment where true devouts in search of God can be found. Poverty have rendered time "valuable" and "limited".

We believe we have a behavioral coach/therapist assigned to the national team.
