Anyway, here’s an extract from the latest post regarding England’s predicament and performance to date. A link to the full article is provided at the bottom:
“We sat in amongst the crowd for the final five or six overs, waiting to interview England and Bangladeshi fans on their respective performances and hopes for the tournament. It wasn’t the first time that I had prepared the wrong questions.
Grown men cried, they shrieked and screamed their elation and they then partied hard and late into the night. The English fans present shook hands gracefully with their Bangladeshi counterparts and told us that you couldn’t be disappointed when you saw how much it meant to the people.
As if any other indication of how much this meant were needed, you need only look outside the stadium moments after the game. The road outside was crowded with tens of thousands of celebrating fans. Think Wembley Way Chittagong-style. For people who have so little, the success of their cricket team means so much, and they aren’t afraid to show it.”
