It isn’t exactly a big secret that majority of Bangladeshis are die-hard cricket fans. You can see the cricket craze during any match no matter where you are — in the streets, tea stalls, or on Facebook. It was only a matter of time that our love for cricket gets reflected on some international campaign.
International Cricket Council (ICC) has just posted a video on YouTube which will be used as the official TV Commercial (Ad) for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. That’s good news for cricket fans, right? The cricket world cup is right around the corner. But even better news is, the TV Commercial shows the other side of Bangladesh: Our love for cricket.
If you watch the full 60 seconds video below, you will spot not just once, but twice that Bangladeshi flag appears. Drawing the Bangladeshi flag on our faces have grown so popular that even ICC featured a face with Bangladeshi flag in the video. And then there are other shots including Bangladeshi flag being waved.
For some, it is probably nothing. What do we have to be happy about here? But if you are a cricket fan, you will definitely appreciate the ICC video featuring our love for cricket.
It’s worth mentioning that because this is the official TV commercial for ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, it will be broadcast in cable TV channels in many different countries across the world over the next few weeks and months.
