Mushfiq's still got an eighty on his back (from the Sri Lanka series), but look at Aftab. If anyone's carrying drinks in the rest of the series, it should be him. The man has no bloody sense.

Shakib and Mushfiq should definately be out of the Test team, neither of them has enough quality to be there.

Mashrafe likes Tushar's Jersey better. Maybe because it's still pretty new compared to his burden-filled faded sweater :).....oh wait, now this will fade as well, or maybe not if he too follows the few who just perished before him :)!

Well, who do you get dissapointed with,

good batsmen playing stupid

or inexperienced batsmen unable to play.

Oram to Mehrab Hossain jnr, OUT, short on the off stump, Mehrab steps down the track and decided to leave the ball as the ball flies off the outside edge to backward point, where How grabs the offering. Just what was Mehrab trying to do there is something that is beyond my thinking capabilities

Enough to put one off BD cricket forever.

Aftab really needs a good talking to. Who can remember the last time he put on a 30+ score ? he can REALLY HIT the ball but hits out way too often. bring him ut at number 6 in the 35-40 overs and maybe he can get us some quick 30-40s.

Don't see why Mushfiq should be in the team based on a fifty made on a subcontinental wicket. Since his debut match, I have seen him getting undone by express deliveries too many times - something that disqualifies him to be in a test series in NZ. It's not about punishing anyone, it's about who has the skills and who does not to survive here.

Talking about making him carrying drinks is crazy at best. First name me a decent replacement. Our top order performance was fine. 2 out of top 4 performed, its acceptable by any standard. We needed Ash to carry on (score 100+) and some sort of support from middle and lower middle order.

filtered 20 438 92 21.90 0 1 2 1/12 56.50 0 12 0

out of that, 132 (92 against bermuda and 40 against Canada) don't count. Which leaves him at 18 matches, 306 runs at an avg of about 17. However, we can't really point fingers at him cause I'm sure most of the rest have similar stats.

Aftab really needs a good talking to. Who can remember the last time he put on a 30+ score ? he can REALLY HIT the ball but hits out way too often. bring him ut at number 6 in the 35-40 overs and maybe he can get us some quick 30-40s.

Yes, you say that. But that is how they all play. Ashraful got away today but more often than not he also fails.

It is their penchant for hitting sixes that needs to be curbed , in fact, banned. Even if those were put away as fours the risk would more than halve.

Maybe, because we are short of stature generally, there is something macho about hitting sixes - lots of ill-informed street credibility.

As for Mushfiq:

filtered 20 322 57 24.76 0 2 - - - - 16 4 (17 innings, 4 NOs)

out of that, one 56* against india in the world cup got him a lot of support. other then that, 127 runs n four innings against Zimbabwe, and two other scores past 30 (38* v WI, 35 aginst Ind). Take the 127 against Zimbabwe out of the equation and this is what he has done:

16 matches/13 innings/4 NOS, 195 runs, an avg of 22. :)

The top four got out because they were trying to accelerate the run rate, the next three got out because they lacked quality to survive. Although I am mighty pissed by Aftab today, it will be total stupidity try to replace him with someone who will be of much inferior quality.

Yes, you say that. But that is how they all play. Ashraful got away today but more often than not he also fails.

It is their penchant for hitting sixes that needs to be curbed , in fact, banned. Even if those were put away as fours the risk would more than halve.

Maybe, because we are short of stature generally, there is something macho about hitting sixes - lots of ill-informed street credibility.
<!--StartFragment -->Rather they need to play situation wise, Today when Tamim gone Ash should have concentrate on building a partnership, NOT letting NZ on top losing another wicket soon ( be it slow run rate for while ). That would have worked, in fact thats how we see other team play. As long Ash was on the pitch, the pressure was on NZ.

Good job by Farhad and Mashrafe so far, holding on to their wickets till the end of the 40th over. It's time to accelerate from here now - we can still get something between 230 and 250. Whether that'll be enough is a different question.

It is not their fault. There first job was to use up the overs. Mashrafe is technically not equipped anyway. Farhad is probably slightly better but cannot be called a batsman. The fault lies with the top order.
