View Full Version : is this forum more intelligent than Bd thinktank

in this forum there was a thread of playing aftab at 3. he is inform and after openers get to a relatively good start, the natural choice is ofcourse him.

but our clever coach/captan think otherwise and played ash at 3, he was out of form and obviously not confident. playing him against the new ball just sacrificed his wicket. instead ash could have played in 6 with older ball, get himself set and get a better score. seems like this forum has more intelligence than our coach/captain:-/

When Rajin was sent in again and again, everyone said, he was Faruq's bule-eyed kid. I have same question on ASH, he is failing again and again, and the team management is sedning him in again and again.. Why?? because of his 158 agaisnt India.. I honestly beleive he was possessed that day..

I think whatmore got better offer from someone else.. thats why he is acting like these (poor team selection for last couple of months).

very funny

Ashraful has played really good first class cricket this year and it just hasent translated into the national team.

He had a couple of 40's in Duleep Trophy.
A couple of 100 in NCL
100 vs BU
40 vs worcs.

I think the main reason are the english conditions. Not everybody could do what aftab and Javed are doing, there playing better in England than they do in Bangladesh.

i might be biased. But i think the forum is more intelligent than the thinktank.

Not the forum, some of our members are smarter than BD think tank.

I have seen threads like BD will beat England or Drop Habibul threads. So can't give credit to the whole forum.

Just by the sheer number of participants, this forum must be smarter than the BD cricket think-tank.

The people on my forum are more intelligent than the England selectors. The England selectors always end up doing what we say.

For e.g. we said that GoJo shouldn't open and that Strauss should - a few months later and look at who is opening now
