What a victory! I was cheering for them all along (yeah, just Cricinfo)
I've never been impressed with Bangladesh's performances, I still believe they were given test status too early. I'd go as far as to say it should be revoked. Maybe a two-tier system wouldn't have been so bad after all (although making Ind, Aus and Eng immune from relegation certainly isn't fair), it would make the lamer teams stay on their toes.
Well done, Afganistan, your rise in world cricket has certainly been impressive! Although, now you will have the millstone of expectations around your necks....
"We have already been through this, I am not going to repeat myself." - fat_boy, in a global warming thread
The reply you had given is really great..but i think you missed one point..He was referring to 3rd World Countries..which is something that has to be countered upon...But yes as Vikram has mentioned its wise to ignore them and continue with our work!!!
"The term Third World arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned with either NATO (with the United States, Western European nations and their allies representing the First World), or the Communist Bloc (with the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China, Cuba, and their allies representing the Second World). This terminology provided a way of broadly categorizing the nations of the Earth into three groups based on social, political, and economic divisions."
And as per definition Austria and Switzerland were part of it as well:
Historically, some European countries were part of the non-aligned movement and a few were and are very prosperous, including Switzerland and Austria.
As mentioned in this thread earlier, consider this as his ignorance and don't pay attention.
