The loss (after 67/8 and and 113/2...still can't believe it) and team performance from the first ODI are still stinging badly. They're redeemable only if we win the series.

My preferred XI:

Shamsur
Anamul/Tamim - depending on Tamim's and Mushfiq's fitness levels
Mominul
Mushfiq - guess he has to play since he's the skipper
Sakib
Naeem - best performer from the last ODI series
Nasir
Gazi
Mashrafee
Sunny
Rubel/Al Amin

Rubel and Al Amin both did good. No room for mashrafee unless you want 3rd FB

If Musfiq cannot do WK, he need to take rest. No point bringing back an injured player too early. He is the main culprit why we failed to cross the target even when Momin and Shamus made it so eary target (RR wise as well as run wise). And even he plays, he shoudn't play at #4. He just wasted the game with dot balls after dot balls and maded a easy target harder at the end. He played like a TEST match.

I wuuldn't take any risk with Anmaul starting. With his footwork he will most likely fail again as an opener. If fully fit Rahim plays, Anamul is not needed. If Rahim doesn't play, only then Anamul can play and bat lower order when we may need quick runs.

Naeem, if selected, need to bat top of the order, i.e. #4.

I would drop Gazi and rather take Mashrafee and use Nasir for few remaining overs (if MAshrafee is not used for full 10 overs).

I would drop Gazi and rather take Mashrafee and use Nasir for few remaining overs (if MAshrafee is not used for full 10 overs).

When fully fit, Mashrafee is still our best FB IMO (and he can bat a bit which is an added bonus). But if he isn't fully fit, it doesn't matter to me which two of Mashrafee, Rubel and Al Amin start.

I'm wary of making too many changes from one game to the next, but I agree, I also prefer Naeem at 4 and Mushfiq at 6 in the long run. 5th seems to be the best position for Sakib, so he should remain there. I don't rate Mushfiq as an ODI batsman. His average speaks for itself....Unless there's a positive trend and/or his average from the past three years is better at 30+. (Off-topic: He's decent as a captain IMO. His off-the-field captaincy is very good, on the field is OK at best. He needs to be less defensive, take more risks, and have the courage and be open to make decisions on the field that go against the strategy the team mgmt laid out for him. All in all, I think he's the best we can do regarding captaincy ATM.)

His SR was fine though in the last game since the RRR was only ~3. He only screwed up in the last ball with extremely poor shot selection when there was no need to hit out or take any risks. Out of all the missed catches and poor shot selections that resulted in outs, Mushfiq's pass to Sangakkara was arguably the worst IMO.

I don't think we can get over the first ODI loss in this series. The momentum is now firmly with Sri Lanka and it is likely that they will bury us under a pile of runs in this game.

I will still watch in the hope that i am totally wrong.

We are gonna loose for sure.. If the team wasn't such a big choker our record would have quite good over the years, with test victories over full strength Pakistan and Australian side, Asia cup & Tri nation Champion to T20 tournament winner against No 1 ranked side. This in turn would have prevented the team from becoming the "minnows" and "laughing stock" of the rest of the world...

Even if Bangladesh wins this one day, it wouldn't really matter to me. Only if the team wins both the ODIs against Srilanka, take the Asia cup and become World T-20 Champion, would I change my opinion about these loosers..

I think you better switch to some other sport. With that kind of expectation i am afraid there is only going to be more and more heartaches for you.
I am quite happy with the close games and occasional victories because i have seen much much worse during the early days of Al shahriar rokon and javed omar. It is not as if we set the world alight with any other sport so I tend to appreciate whatever joy cricket brings to me. Of course the last defeat was one of the hardest I had to endure but its okay... we have busy season ahead and if we play well and put up a good show in the Asia Cup, all will be forgotten.

This country thrives in mediocrity, football team is happy with just competing in South Asia, economist/ politicians are pleased with 6% GDP growth and we (Bangla cricket fans) are content with occasional wins and close games.

Off topic: I agree with the overall mediocrity part. I'm not a fan of the Economist, but they are right that emerging economies have much to learn from the parable of Argentina. Especially the part about the dangers of being ruled by economically illiterate populists and governed by weak institutions; even when those shortcomings are papered over by economic growth.

On topic: Look at 9 wicket Rony Haider choke at the death. Shabash cubs!

People who are in abroad actually contribute more in country's progress than thousands of people who lavishly lead their life on baap er teka.

Bangladesh has a record amount of foreign currency reserve only because of NRB's. Rather giving some credit to them, people always criticize saying they do nothing for the country. Very common.

They just need to take it match by match. Mushfiqur should be asked to consult Mash and Shakib for bowling and fielding changes. Mushfiqur's lack as a tactician was one reason we lost.

I don't think we can get over the first ODI loss in this series. The momentum is now firmly with Sri Lanka and it is likely that they will bury us under a pile of runs in this game.

I will still watch in the hope that i am totally wrong.

There is no excitement as much beloved by all fans of Bangladesh Cricket. I'm a south american by birth. Matches start here at 3 in the morning . i watched all the matches in this series so far, but none have been as heart broken as the previous match. I don't know how our team can bounce back from this predicament. Making a guy like Thisara bully us, i understand that the only guy who is allowed to bully in the sri lankan team is Kumar Sangakarrra. Why can't we bully them? Why are we allowing them to call the shots? Are we that afraid that we can't even win games when in a winning position?

I think that we are Psychologically broken just like the English team were from Johnson and company not so long ago. And who is our Bane? Sangakarra? Dishan? Mathews? I definitely think that it's not Chandimal, Kusal,Thisara, Vithanage, .

I really think that Bangladesh need to bring their A-Game to the fore. Looking at the die hard fans in the ground cheering every good thing that Bangladesh team does, those guys painting their bodies to show their love and admiration for our team/players. And what they gave us in return ? Disappointment.

The handful of Sri Lankans in the ground are proving to be our bane as well. There is no feeling as good as winning in enemy territory. Sri Lankans are feasting on us like they have always done since our Admittance to top Test status.

I know that this is a match thread so i'm going to fall in line and do the right thing. Hope to see a more spirited performance by this Bangladesh Team. GO TIGERSS!!!

If you feel strongly about changing things i suggest you move back and make a difference.
It is easy to be critical sitting on the other side of the fence

Dude, I moved back to Dhaka few years back and trying to make a change in my own little way, thus the frustration. If I was staying abroad, do you think I would have time for such rant! After all, "time is money" everywhere else other than Bangladesh..

Also, this mental weakness and mediocrity is not confined to the border of Bangladesh, desis abroad are not that different either. A quick look at the average income of Bangladeshi diaspora in US, UK or Australia in comparison to other immigrant groups will show the difference. I am yet to find a developed expat Bangladeshi neighborhood in any country, it's mostly a smaller/bigger version of Jackson Heights regardless of where you go.

Best of luck nevertheless.

And pls pick Naeem, bring MAsh back, he gives positive energy to the team , if Mushy can't keep play Anamul as lower order batsman, if Tamim isn't fit no prob, let him recover.
Mash can replace off form Gazi, don't know who NAeem can replace though, may be Ryad.

We are gonna loose for sure.. If the team wasn't such a big choker our record would have quite good over the years, with test victories over full strength Pakistan and Australian side, Asia cup & Tri nation Champion to T20 tournament winner against No 1 ranked side. This in turn would have prevented the team from becoming the "minnows" and "laughing stock" of the rest of the world...

Even if Bangladesh wins this one day, it wouldn't really matter to me. Only if the team wins both the ODIs against Srilanka, take the Asia cup and become World T-20 Champion, would I change my opinion about these loosers..

The team should be hopping mad and ice cool. So much so that even the best team in the world would be afraid to play them. Getting them to the right mindset is the coach and skipper's job. Someone needs to dictate strategy/tactics to Mushfiqur. Otherwise, he will mess up somewhere.

I think that what Pakistan pulled off with Imran Khan (captain) and Javed Miandad (as an onfield tactician) is only a theory. In practice this is probably not possible. You just cannot ask someone else about your every move (only the key ones in crunch situation may be) being the captain or else its the other person who should be the captain to begin with. Then there is the ego factor that might come in. Even after the loss mushfiq still defended his stance of bowling left handers with offspinners. It tells me that he simple does not see it. He needs to learn QUICKLY that you cannot just apply the damn same formula to go about each and every game. It is simply heart breaking to see him making blunders like this.

Thats a bit excessive Imtiaz bhai. How many of the 7 or so Chinatowns strewn about NYC are as developed as the Upper East Side? Manhattan, Flushing, Elmhurst chinatowns are all like Jackson Heights just with Chinese people. Ethnic enclaves are always choatic because they contain the very bottom socioeconomic class of the immigrant population.

Along with your comment about Bangladesh needing to win this series, AC, and WT20 to prove they're not losers.

There is certainly a culture of mediocrity and an alarming level of ineptitude leading to continously losing out on NRR whenever it comes into play. That being said, expecting a sea change is as futile as the man who expects his future bride to be Miss Universe with a Harvard diploma as well. You have to recognize your objective value and set goals and aspirations accordingly.

You wouldn't expect Bangladesh to win an all out military confrontation with China would you?

lol Don't take my post in literal terms man.. just frustrated with the team's performance and the general attitude of the people back here.

As for the analogy, I wouldn't expect Bangladesh to be equal to China militarily, but people should aspire to be like South Korea or Malaysia at least. In cricket team's context, of course I don't expect the tigers to be Australia or South Africa overnight, but after a decade of test cricket we should be mature enough to handle pressure situation one out of 2/3 times and not give it away every time. Just look at the U-19 WC, even Afghanistan (with much less exposure) was wise enough to finish the chase in 25 overs against Namibia to qualify but our batsmen collapsed just at the thought of a challenge!

p.s the worst part of this is I have Bangladeshi genes as well, so if today we beat Srilanka.. like others I will probably be over the moon.

OK, just checking. I too had some choice words for the U19 performance today. I didn't even realize our match vs Australia was yday/today. I saw the CI tag "AFG through to quarters" and my initial thought was "Oh, we beat AUS and we're through with AFG...cool".

Mashreafee's line and length is a concern. I think it was a mistake to replace Al Amin today. Although he did not get much wickets but his line and length was pretty good. Also only the other day, Mashrafee got some fluid off is knee and bowling today may aggravate his condition. On the other hand, I am impressed with the performance of our new wicket keeper. I think we should let him keep the wicket from now on instead of Mushfiq.

RBX strikes again as Dillu's poor form continues. Sadly, KS looks set to score his 17th ODI 100 today. He'll put the boundary balls away with high percentage shots whilst keeping pressure at bay with effortless strike rotation thanks to Mushfiq's inevitable generosity and deep adherence to "the script". Mushfiq's customary brain freeze during the middle overs with create a wonderful platform for Sri Lanka to accelerate during the last 10. We've seen this before.

The commentator says that Mushrafee is walking a little awkward. That is what happens when you decide to go with a player who is not fully fit. I hope that this does not cause a permanent damage in him. At the very least he should be given some rest now after the first 5 overs.

I really don't understand why they continue to play Mahmudulullah instead of trying Naeem. Naeem had a good series against NZ. If some people are getting free rides in the team while others not getting deserved chance, this would create huge problem in the mindset of the players.

Mash doesn't seem to be fit enough to play. The decision not to play Al-Amin seems to be wrong one as well.
