Can't believe one loss has caused such a chaos within the team... this has been essentially the same team that banglawashed NZ... Our batting flopped against NZ much in the same way as it did against Zim yesterday... but we were still able to go over the line partly because NZ didn't have quality spinners besides vettory (zim had ray and utseya)... and partly because NZ were especially poor against our spin attack.
As a selector it would have been tough to leave out Ashraful after such a commanding performance in the NCL or Mash because of his past record. Its easy for us in the Forum to say it without facing consequences. Had Ash's replacement failed...Newspapers (more like ashraful's pet bunnies) would have cried foul all over for excluding him and the same case with Mash. In a way this loss or dare I say future losses will help the current squad to identify and lose its dead weights before the worldcup.
Get well Bruce
