Lose to India, we are out.

1) Stop PAK reaching semi

talking about scenarios, everything is possible...for instance NZ could have easily be sitting on 4 pts instead of 11..mushfiqur gifted them 2 pts by messing up the Williamson runout, williamson again was caught behind vs SA but nobody believed Tahir and didn’t take the review; he went on to score a ton and NZ won in the last over,against west indies carlos brathwaite had a brain freeze and threw away the match with 5 runs to get with an over to spare, they gained an unlikely point due to the washout against India and we lost one likely point due to our washout vs SL; which spread the gap by 2 more pts between us and them...
Mashrafe has been saying from the beginning that you need luck to win a match as well as skills...may be NZ will keep getting lucky against ENG and we’ll win the remaining 2...let’s not give up hope...”Not Today!”

So the India match has become our KO match. Wow. Couldn't be written better.

But do we deserve to win though when we didn't fix our wk problems? If we pull it off, it will be the first time a Special Needs team has made it to the semi finals.

I am assuming we will beat Pakistan easily if we manage to beat India.
The end of Rahim will mark a new great beginning for the complacency free Bangladesh!

Moral of the Thread: If you dream of playing semi final, do it on your own. Do not depend on others and countless scenarios.
Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself- AJH| Don’t disrespect your life by living aimlessly – set goals and work hard to attain them.

The world cup is won for me if we can beat India and Pakistan. Dont care about the semi finals. Just beat India and Pak and BCB should organise a victory parade on a bus in Dhaka with the world cup replica.

Scenarios look very difficult unless New Zeland beat England, and we win both matches.

You only play good cricket when you win/draw matches.
