View Full Version : change for the next games......

I think there will be a big change in the team and we could find at least 2 or 3 bench player play in the next game.
As far I remember, in 99 WC BD made a big changes in the match against the Pakis and gave chance to some bench players after losing consecutive matches and the result we all know.
Ash will definitely come back - probably Tushar and Sujon too.

Honestly, don't care what they do. All of'em are the same, they just don't know how to play. What a way to waste $300. Now, for a whole week won't be reading any sports pages in the internet.

Let's bring in Ash, Shujon and Tusher. Simply, none of them can do any worse then the rest. Now, what is up with Talha. How come there is NO NEWS on this guy. Can anyone talk to our reporters and maybe setup a shrink session with them to find out why they are as inept as our players ? We have four of them in SA.
As for the team - it's hard to tell who to keep. The only certainity is Sumon as he was easily the worst of the bunch. 30 years old fart, bats like he is playing his first ODI.

And what about Rokon? He was not in any pressure at all - he was only bobbed down for a few balls and then just threw his wicket away. We don't need such a selfish Rokon who will score only when it matters to him - not when it matters to Bangladesh.
Sumon is defintely out of form, so Pilot can ask Ashraful which place he wants - does he want to open and replace Rokon or does he want to bat at three and replace Sumon? Sujon can easily come in in place of a specialist batsman. At least he is known to be a fighter.
Seejan is a suspect against fast bowling and bounce - he also showed that he can bat without chasing after wide balls.
Sanwar can easily bat at number eight or nine as a specialist off spinner.
Pilot now must listen to all the experts and comes to bat at number five.
Kapali's place in the side was not a suspect, until yesterday, so we can give him a few more chances.
Rafique is as poor as Monju as a bowler, but if he can get the spinners to face as a batsman, then he can certainly win games for us - only there must be a batsman on the other end to either give him support or let Rafique give the batsman some support.
Tapash is not the guy we have seen in the last South Africa or even Sri Lanka tour - he has turned himself into more of a bowler than an all-rounder. So its no use thinking of picking him to strengthen the batting line in the lower order.
Mashrafee may be our only wicket taking bowler, but he is unfit in certain ways, way too inexperienced with the bat.
And Monju is getting old just like Rafique.
My vote would be to pick all the 4 players who were sitting on the bench. At least then we will know who has the world cup temperament and who does not.
I don't agree with bd_cricket that letting the bench players play in the Pakistan game helped us. In fact, if you want to remind us of the world cup 1999, then I would tell you to look back at the first game against New Zealand where we let Nannu sitting in the bench, and Bangladesh's batting collapsed really bad.
Then in the West Indies match, we did a little better although Nannu didn't do anything much in that game, but still it proved vital in the next match against Scotland.
I just hope that Ashraful becomes our Nannu of the world cup '99 this time.
