Test series in England - Asia cup - England tour - And this tour ain't over yet.

Do you guys think that such a schedule might be a reason for the poor performance?

I mean I'm not entirely blaming it on the tour for sure, but such back to back series without ample break is ridiculous.

Maybe, and all the losses have dented their confidence, they do not know how to win, they try to perform a bit better and that is all. No help from Siddons, he has no clue how to handle these young lads who have lost their self confidence and cannot rise above it. IMO, they feel badly and very dejected when they lose all the time, and when they go out to play, they just cannot shake it off, maybe, in their minds, IT IS- WELL WE HAVE TO PLAY, SO LET US GET IT OVER WITH, THIS BURDEN IS TOO MUCH. BCB badly needs a sports psychologist, they are allowing Associates to beat them now. Afghanistan has already beaten Ireland, why cant they beat Ireland. Now, if they lose to Scotland and netherlands, it will be a terrible let down to themselves, the country and their fans.
Now, we can fianlly say that BD cricket is crap.

I dunt agree. When the boys dunt play much. We complain that we need to play more and the reason we loose is because we are out of cricket for so long. This is good for Bangladesh. There is no reason to be tired. Bangladesh are doing well. the proof= beating England. Look at all the other teams. Everyones busy like they should be before the worldcup.

I thinks so. BCB made a big blunder when they agreed to play the Test series in May, right after the T20 WC. That was the time they should have been given a break.

WTH? One win speaks nothing about fitness. If they ain't fit, then that might heavily contribute to the loss.

BTW since May, now till July, 1 test series of 2 tests, followed by 3 Asia cup odis, followed by 3 england odis, 2 irish odis, and it ain't over yet.. That's 3 months of near non stop cricket with lots of traveling.. Now if you call that not good enough reason to get tired, then I quit. :-D

At least they've got some rest from International s coming up. But Shakib will go straight to Worcester but I'm sure in the long term his experience there will be beneficial to Bangladesh cricket

They will get one month of rest for the month of Ramadan, Siddons will be holidaying in Australia.
Eid is supposed to be on on the 10th September, so no cricket until after that, so there, lots of rest and also eating and putting on weight, then it is back to square one for these guys.

Schedule is/was fine. The experience and practice was much needed.

The problem is that the same players are doing it all regardless of form and fatigue.

We need separate teams for Tests vs. ODI/T20s based on players abilities.

Well, Tamim, Shakib, Jahurul, Zunaed, Shafiul, Mashrafe will be in both formats.. So main players won't still get any rest.. Plus lotsa traveling.. That is a draining.. Both mentally and physically :waiting:

Definitely. We have been playing non-stop against top opposition in various different conditions from the start of the year and that too with more or less the same bunch of players for all formats. The coming break after the Europe tour is a welcome one. If there are any domestic tournys in that period I hope Mash, Shak, Tamim, Zunaed, Mushy and Shafiul are allowed to skip it and rest. New Zealand series at home is an important one and I for one have high expectations.

Partly yes! From the begining of this year we have been playing with G8 countries without any break and got frustated by losing match after match as we didnt play any matches against minnows. Now we are playing with minnows and its gonna be a happy ending of a tough and rough six months of cricket.
