In a pre match interview between India and Bangladesh, an irritated Dave Whatmore,coach of Bangladesh,asked "I would like to know what's the meaning of minnows is in [the] Oxford Dictionary. We have secured important triumphs. But yes we are ninth in order so in that sense the other big teams are ahead of us. India is one of them and they are the first one we have to contend with..."

Here is the meaning of Minnows according to

"a person or thing that is comparatively small or insignificant."

From 17th march onwards, either this word should be used more judiciously or should be banned at least from one day cricket lingo.
