A generic ‘Bangladesh lose’ update

Shahid AfridiThe opposition’s best batsman, Mohammad Yousuf, scored a hundred. Shahid Afridi hit 27 off 11 balls. Bangladesh’s top scorer was their number ten, Mashrafe Mortaza. Shakib al Hasan was out first ball.

There are four more of these fixtures. How are we going to get through them? Does anybody know anything about being really dangerously into gambling? How do you do that? Television has taught us that you win and win and win and then, when you bet an extraordinary amount, you lose. But in our experience, you lose straight away, get disheartened and don’t bet again for another three years.

2 Appeals

  1. Television also teaches us about the poor bad gambler who doesn’t know when to quit.

  2. I know someone who won 20,000 Rs. on a bet of 500 on Bangladesh in their match against Pakistan in 1999 world cup. Bangladesh had never beaten Pakistan before that and they haven’t ever after that.

    Wasim Akram was all smiles at the post match ceremony saying it was like losing to brothers. Obviously he did not mention how much richer he was that day thanks to the brothers.

    That match ofcourse had no bearing on Pakistan’s standing in the group stages or the Super Sixes.
