Which team would you rather play in the Final?

Don't know how to make a poll, otherwise I would have, lol.

But which team would you rather play in the Final, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka?

Curious to hear the responses.

I think only admins can create polls.

That question won't arise because both of them would be in the final :)

For a serious answer, SL - a no-brainer. We have beaten them recently, and we won't have to face the partisan home crowd with BD in the final. In fact, if we make the finals with SL, I'm sure the BD crowd will support us too, instead of SL. That support would be probably Harare + Bulawayo put together.

If I were a ZIM fan, I'd pick BD because given the ranking points, you'd get slightly more points for the win.

But you're right about the crowd support issue. I hope there is a good crowd in for the neutral games. It is quite cold so that might keep some people away if BD are not in the game.

Yeah, neutral league games might not attract much crowd, but I'm assuming people might have bought tickets for the final ahead of time assuming BD would make it and if they don't we stand to gain a lot in terms of support!

Shouldn't playing in front of a parochial crowd be something you should do? We can't always play in favourable fan conditions, so we need to get used to playing against the crowd. This is what makes cricketers. Playing when the odds are against you. Provide the fans with a spectacle and they learn to love you like India with AB and Faf.
