View Full Version : Some thoughts... despite our ODI wins..

We just leveled the series 2-2...But some area of weakness still remains:

Firstly, our opening bowlers are not having convincing break-through. If Spinners had not pulled the life out of ZIMís innings... things could have gone real tough for BD today. Even in the last 3 ODIís it was hard for BD to get early break-through.

Secondly, the nature of losing wickets on BD side still remains to be a source of worry. Top order is throwing wickets after getting set. Middle order is still struggling a bit. We are losing almost our whole squad against this not-so-strict ZIM bowling by the end of 50 overs... even when we r batting first and having the advantage of batting without pressure.

I fear we might lose the toss in the SERIES-DECIDER and having to chase whatever ZIMís put on the board... this collapsing nature of our batting might just let us down.

BDís performance improving very fast one match to the next... lets hope they play their best & most convincing in the 5th ODI... Best of luck!
