What an excuse..can't play, too weak, too emotional and now blame it on the day.
None of the players gave 100% of their efforts, actually we are also like them. Too much emotional to think that one win and we will go to semi hahahaha...

Superstitous r one of the mental disease. I think most of the people r suffer by this disease.I dont think so its very harmful but annoing.
But heavily superstitous is big problem..
unfortunately our player r heavily superstitous.A good psychologist can help our player for best recovery.

Mash has this vision issue we all know that. Nothing serious. That is the reason he is not captain material.

however influencing others is a bad sign. I am sure Sakib gives a rats behind to any of mash's visions.

On the other hand an intelligent coach/captain can use this to manipulate the players' minds. All they have to do it is to give them a lot of paper clips about West Indian players partying, their internal conflict, problems with Lara etc. Our players will suddenly start to believe that there is no way they would lose. It will work.

Players from other countries (including Eng, Aus, SA, NZ) also have supestitions (things like wearing different colored socks for different feet), but none of their cases are probably as serious as the case for Mash. SN also said he has lots of superstitions, he uses the same undies, socks, and pads for every match. Rafique and Ash, I heard, are only players in the team without any superstition (I have not heard anything about Tamim, Sakib, and Mushfiq in this regard yet, so no comment on them).

I take Utpol Shuvro's articles with a grain of salt, but if it has any truth to it, then I'm disappointed. The players should have belief in themselves and on their ability, not some lucky jersey. If crap like worked, we would be winning consistently.

The only evidence from the article is that masrafee is superstitious... Other than that he did not mention anything specific.

I am not too worried about it...

i agree. the coach and captain probably have made it clear that there's nothing called superstition.

this is not a good sign. the best bowler/player in the team is thinking abt this all the time and specially before the match, then it is a bad sign. A psychologist needs to visit him after the WC.

I think this Utpol Shuvro is doing too much now a days. His match reports are worsening day by day. In the last match where we lost to Ireland he never mentioned that our captian was failed to manipulate the team. In fact he was backing his captain up saying that bad day may come for any team.

This is just stupid. Very cheap journalism.

Nothing new. Most professional athletes, in any sport, are superstitious to varying degree.

The article seems like a fairy tale.
Utpal shuvro would give the same article some positive air, if Bangladesh would have won it. tokhon mone 'su-dak' dakto!

Rubbish article. But Bangladesh team (players, manager, coach everyone) has problems with their mental strength, strategy and execution for sure.

Media is there to dig out what's going on. There are far more personal things than supersition and worse in the other teams that you mentioned. The media is doing a fine job. No need to take the players irresponsibilities on them

In summary the article claims to have found evidence that some of the players in the BD team are superstitious and have precognition about the outcome of the next game even before a single ball has delivered. Some also try to impose their superstitious belief (that they will lose) on others. Unfortunately, they say nothing about girls. :)

MJ (23) wore his North carolina shorts (under neat) in and every professional game he ever played. Because that's where all it started. What's the big deal?

Tiger Woods, Federer also have some. But that don't stop them thinking that they are the best there is, there was and there will be. They put enormous amount of time in the practice field and in the weight room and in the film room studing opponents, courses (TW). Our players don't do their homework and thus lacks confidence and tries to find excuses. Jotto shob...
