View Full Version : BD TOP Order Batsmen must play big innings

I am expecting BD will win 1 test. However it will all depends on our top order batsmen. I am very confident that our bowlers will keep WI within 300/350 per innings range max but WI batting most likely to collapse (will score less than 200) against our bowling at least 1 inning per test.

BD yet to find two solid openers. Our openers always put us on the back foot from the get go. We need to find two openers of Yaseer Hamid or Sehwag quality.


Few batsmen I am counting on who are ready to play at test level :

Bashar
Rajin
Mushfiq
K Mashud
Rana
Faisal


However they all need to raise the bar at least 2 notches and plan for big innings. 40/50 runs will not cut it. They need to plan to play to make around 100/150 . You may argue how can you judge Faisal from only 1 game. I think what impressed me is his attitude towards the game. He seems to like to be in the driving seat while batting.
That the kind of attitude we need - not to be intimidated. Faisal definitely needs to be included. He showed the right attitude that is needed at the international level.

Rajin, Rana, Faisal should get themselves out of this losing circle of the BD team and play for themselves. They need to compete with players like Laxman, Ponting or Kallis.


Sarkar, Shahriar and Ash - all has the skill but they are lacking the drive and mental planning to be the best in the world class environment.

Kapali is out of form for too long.

Good points, we can achieve very good openign partnerships, as shown in pakistan, etc, but then our batting collapes we need a couple of middle order batsmen who can hold the innings.

Even if he has knowledge, he sure as hell doesn't show any of it here. And he just doesn't "like to tease", his sole purpose here is to tease, or more clearly, to troll. He will get his a$$ banned if he doesn't wise up.

What the dickens does all that garbage mean? I thought the posting rules specified that posts must be in English or Bangla. This is neither. This seems to be some cheap coconut rum induced, regressed pre-kinder gibberish.
