Its quite frustrating that mushfiqur has been failing consistantly with a few success here and there

As a captain he needs to perform and lead from the front.

Serious questions have to be asked about our Captain's place in the team. At the moment I think he is the 2nd worst performer in the team after Abul, even Tamim/Ash have scored some 30s

Mushfiq only had one good innings this year and that was against India, he is just living of that fame. He clearly fails at T20 and needs to be dropped. He should still be watched in ODI's and tests to see if he can perform there

He did get some runs in Zimbabwe, but that's not the point. This is absolute bull crap from Mushfiq. Either score some runs or get the heck out. This sort of Ashrafulesque form is unacceptable. If you can't click three out of five times, you have no business being in the team.

He's a good keeper, a 2nd grade batsman and a terrible captain, i still believe we lost asia cup because of him letting shahadat bowl despite giving so many runs. His main asset to the team is is cherleading skills.

Too true. Everyone in the team must perform and constantly prove that they are among the best XI in the country. If they can't do that they must be kicked the hell out. Both Mushy and Riyad need to realise no matter how much they score in domestics and practice matches, they've got to score in international games as well to stay in the NT XI.

everyone going bonkers again. Mushy has performed this. People have been praising him and now everyone is over reacting. Alright so maybe he hasnt played to his potential in this series. So wat? That doesnt mean he hasnt performed all year. You dont kick someone out of the team if they dont peform 4-5 matches. :facepalm:

You have to give them chances. People have to realise that chopping and changing the team wont work. He is a proven performer.

Mushy's bowling changes worries me.. it looks like there is no certain plan.. may be because the bowlers are not bowling according to his plan..So can't blame him totally .. Could've used Zia for an over or 2.. Sunny not getting full quota is surprising too..

And I don't know why he is sooo inconsistent with his batting at the international matches.. Today he should've build an innings rather than trying those big shots right away... But I've faith in him.. Inshallah he will be back ..

There should be some plans about how to rotate bowlers; not just going into the match and let this guy bowl and see what happens next; there should be some solid plans about who to bowl where and which batsman; let it be Irish, Scotland or Netherlands anyone, coaching stuff should sit with Mushfiq and discuss rotation of bowlers and how to exploit certain weakness of batsmen

Yeah that's exactly what I was saying.. His bowler changes were pretty confusing.. Seems like they don't do enough research on the opposition players weaknesses ..If he did he could've rotated the bowlers and place the field more smartly.. he seems like deciding on his bowlers as the match goes along.. That's not a sign of a good team (I think all our captains had the same problem)

On the contrary I just loved how Scotland had set up the field and the bowlers bowled accoding to the field placing, not allowing our batsman to find gaps.. Why can't our bowlers di that :facepalm:

Good keeper? I always advocated that he should stop keeping. He makes at least one mistake a match as a keeper. Perhaps then he could focus on batting. He is a terrible captain.

Mushy has won us 2-3 big games since becoming captain, and prolly won us a few more. He's doing fine. Just had a bad game or a bad stretch. His keeping is also decent of late (not sure how long that will last).

The problems are that 1) The pacers blow balls 2) Tamim sucks in this format 3) Ash not playing entirely for the team due to selectors caving to anti-Ash crowd and hence being wholly non-commital on him

All in all I wouldnt complain much about this particular loss. We might get steam-rolled by the major sides come the real tourney, but there shouldnt be any alarm bells just yet.

You mentioned that he won us a match. Now think again how many time he has given his wicket away and getting his team into trouble? How many times? Everytime mushy walks into the crease I smell a wicket.

If a captain does not performs there will be alot of problems. The case was similar to Misbah for T20Is.

And I found nothing special in Mushy's captaincy. The bowling changes were baseless. And sunny shouldve bowled more.

Mit'hu has been following the same scoring pattern since the U19s.

Low, low, lowsish, decent, decent, almost, good, good, good (or great) ... restart.

So why the rage now all of a sudden? He's one of the gutsiest players we've had in history. A true warrior who at times overestimates his prowess, but when peaking at the right time, a match winner of great quality.

He should be given 2 yrs before making any judgement to his captaincy unless the team underperform significantly. I reckon he has plan to build his team which takes a while and the job isn’t easy when there is no too many dependable performer along with having some drawback. But its quite certain that captaincy is slowing down his growth as batsmen. apparently that make me feel jelous of Brendan Taylor's performace post captaincy.

He sucked big time the first half of last year but was pretty decent in the 2nd half.

But calling him a match winner is like calling Ashraful a world class batsman. Let him first win us matches, and then lets make such comments. Mushy won us 2-3 matches so far, that 96 against zimbos long ago, the innings against WI in the T20 match and also was ONE OF those who helped BD beat India.

But the issue is he has a player of potential and knows what to do, but poor execution everywhere. Even by seeing his urge to get someone run out that he isnt concentrating well enough.

Just make sure that Mushy does not know that the matches he is playing in are 'international' and voila! You'll see him scoring plenty! He really does remind me of Tushar Imran. May be a slightly better version of Tushar Imran but still does not help.

But his bowler changing decision still questionable.. Why would you give Mash to bowl the last over and why doesn't he use Sunny's full quota ??? Sunny should be tried during the powerplay or death too.. If Riyad can bowl well at the death Sunny will do well too...

But good to see him giving Zia an over...

PoorFan
July 25, 2012, 01:00 PM
Usually after 6/7 down, common cricket sense is to bowl pace at the death overs. Because lower order batsman can find enough to power hit the slow bowling. Thats why we often see teams doing that, even we see Mash like player can hit quite a big shots off slow bowling.

We desperately need a pocket dynamo like him in teatwnty as we can not depend much on Sakib the batsman and Nasir has more work to do.
But Mushy definitely needs to use his bowling options well.

Yeah most of the teams bowls a pacer at the last over but we all know Mash's track record for bowling the last over.. He always goes for too many runs... and yes we didn't have any other good pacer other than Mash (given Nazmul went for runs).. But Mushy should've used a spinner as he did in the previous games.. Mash is good but for some strange reason he can never bowl a decent last over..

mushy still is a bit up and down but for the last 2 years in ODIs he's averaged 30.33 in 31 innings (32 matches), for the last 3 years he's averaged 30.00 in ODIs, 57 innings, 60 matches and in the last 12 months he's averaged 29.23 in 15 innings, 15 matches. so he is reasonably consistent at least by BD standards.

in tests he's averaged 36.40 in 24 innings (12 matches) over the last 3 years. in the last 5 test matches, 10 innings he's averaged 37.77.

mushy has improved his averages dramatically from when he was first in the national team, you can't just quote his overall averages because they don't tell the true story of his consistency over the last few years.

Avg-22, SR-147

Better than that of other players. Dont talk about other formats, he is pretty useless ODI and Test player. The reason why I wanted Junaid in the batting order because he is some1 who has the intent on getting some quick runs and has done that plenty of times, his BPL performance also tells you that.

and he is worthy of being in the XI.

Worthy of being in the XI? Who do you think could be Mushy's replacement? The glorious strokemaker in Dhiman Ghosh or the classy player in Mithun Ali? Or do you think the standout performances of Liton Das in the U19's World Cup warrants him a position in the national team?

Lol @ deshprem. He does need to prove to the nation that he is worthy of leading the team, and he is worthy of being in the XI. Must lead by example. Cannot throw away wickets. He can be forgiven for the practice matches. But if this is repeated against NZ and Pak then problems.

so what do you want him to do? morph into hashim amla and accomplish everything? and seriously, 'worthy of leading the team" "worthy of being in the XI" seriously??? do we have world class players warming the bench ??? the guys has been through the roughest times in bd cricket. he doesn't need to prove any of those things. only thing he needs to do is score runs.

he has shown he has the goods. its just a matter of time that consistency comes.

That's how he has to prove...I.e. By scoring runs.. And how long should he take to be consistent ...? Talking about T20 of course. But yes, I agree it's not yet the time to talk about captaincy... But if he fails continuously in T20 we may have to go for a new captain for this format.

Mushy's off form is messing up the balance in our middle order. Need him to deliver ASAP.

He plays one good innings and then goes into hibernation for the next few matches. He is enjoying the ride because there really isn't anyone in the bench to replace him. He needs to fire up.

I must say for a guy who has been playing in the intl arena for 7 years this kind of performance is simply PATHETIC

But then again, you dont have any backup keeper :facepalm: anamul looked rubbish in the recent A team games

Yes..there is no backup. And that's why our players with minimal work ethics taking advantage of this. No accountability at all. And no one is taking any steps to fix it.

Need to hit them where it hurts. That is their pockets and then Tara baap baap kore perform kora shuru korbe ar cricket er jonno kaaj korbe.

I know this may sound a bit awkward but the reality is that I praise Loitta's decision to put pressure on our players.

I can remember that Mathews was asked to stay away from bowling due to back injury. However he still bowled in IPL because he knew that his position in the team was in jeopardy so he resumed bowling so that team management finds him more useful than others, others like tamimma.
