Our performance, one after another, seems to beg the question, are we simply a bunch of chokers?! Jeez, who would think we have improved at all as a team?!?!? Indians are known for their choking abilities....unable to translate their ever-sky high potential into reality....Bangladesh seems eager to take over the mantle...God Help Us!!!!!!
Nothing..but NOTHING justifies this kind of pathetic display...i hope mass media and everyone else around shames the team until they literally melt into the ground....they don't deserve to stay at that 5 star hotel...there are more deserving people in our country...seriuosly!!!!! we need to come out with a penalty system for poor performances...nothing spurs Bangalees like incentives....especially if it involves the crack of the proverbial whip....

These guys have had too many carrots; they need to feel the stick. Our players don't respond to positive motivation, maybe they'll respond to beter bari.

And our country's media does nothing to shame these idiots. Everybody plays the 'oh-we're-still-learning' card. We can't just be learning all our lives. We have to put up a fight. But no, we went down like a bunch of pussies.

Well the experienced players should be the ones fighting and the inexperienced and young players should be the ones doing all the learnings.

I mean that is why we need all the experienced players into our side, otherwise, we would have been insisting on only the younger players, with them at least, we have a hope that someday they will come good for us.

And in case of Khaled Mashud, he is really fighting and he is one of the experienced players. And Alok Kapali is doing the job for an experienced player at the moment. And Habibul Bashar is playing like somebody who is still learning - and learning it the hard way - by getting out.

The other experienced players - Aminul Islam, Enamul Haque, Naimur Rahman - they are not doing anything - neither are they fighting nor are they staying at the crease long enough to learn anything.

And among the inexperienced and younger players, only Mohammad Ashraful seem to have stayed long enough at the crease to learn something.
