Bangla fans dream big of World Cup win

Chittagong, May 17 - The event: 2011 World Cup final in Mumbai. The contesting teams: Australia and Bangladesh. Possible? Yes, believe many Bangladeshi fans who say that it could be very well the scene four years from now.

And they have an interesting 'Asian logic' for their thinking. They say that it is Bangladesh's turn to play a World Cup final after Australia defeated Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka in three successive cup finals.

'After Sri Lanka upset Australia in the final to win the 1996 World Cup, a chapter closed. A new chapter began with the 1999 World Cup where Australia defeated Pakistan to win the title,' said a local fan quite optimistically.

'Then, Australia beat India in the 2003 World Cup final and defeated Sri Lanka to win the 2007 World Cup. So, it would be Bangladesh that would enter the final in 2011 as it is the only country left in Asia to play the final. The only difference would be that Bangladesh would beat Australia.'

Interesting logic with a little bit of unrestrained optimism.
