View Full Version : Poor decisions

May 17, 2004, 09:51 AM
1st ODI : letting Rajin bowl to the last wicket when Mushfiq still had overs left

2nd ODI : sending Mashud and Mahmud out to bat ahead of Rafique when we needed some quick runs.

agreed - Alok has showed poor form for a while - he needs to get his basics back in shape

Yesterday's match, I think it's the batting order that was wrong.

We should've sent Sarkar and Kapali to open.
reason: Sarkar usually is a solid and patient batsman, and with Kapali we had nothing to loose, the only reason he's in the team was because it's a 25 overs match. Since he's not doind good anyway, why not let him go first, hit out if he could, if not atleast he could've taken the shine of the ball.

The batsmen to follow, shoul've been:

Rana--> Bashar --> Ash--> Rafiq--> Mahmud
reason: since it's a shorter version we should've had as many hitter out there as early as possible, no body wanted 75 runs with 8 wickets in hand. Besides, our top order fails to survive against pacers anyway, why count on them when it comes to hitting.

I know Dav knows more then me and everyone else here, but may be he needs to be reminded sometimes.
