"I was a little bit disappointed because I thought Bangladesh would be more competitive in their own backyard. I thought that they could use the conditions better than us. We also expected a little bit more from the Bangladesh batters since they knew the condition. I also did not see them playing with any strategy against our spin attack," said Fleming who scored a magnificent double hundred in the second Test.

Ive got a strategy i dont know weather they use it. But get each batsman to chose their 2 or 3 strongest shots. Say the cover drive and hook shot. If the ball is full outside off the cover drive is played, if its a bouncer play the hook shot. For all other balls just defend or leave the ball. This strategy works for Hayden and co.

Hmm. We don't have the talent of Hayden and co. Teams like NZ will work out pretty quickly whats going on and i dont doubt they're good enough to ball around that, force/encourage other shots. Bangladesh is still developing. I dont think it's smart to cage yourself in like that. You are limiting not only your play, but your development.
