The other thing to think about is that the preparation for this tour was very poor and efforts have to be made to ensure that BD plays cricket on a regular basis. Some of you are calling for Shakib's head, but I think changing the skipper at this stage will only make things worse and beside there isn't a suitable replacement anyway. Shakib has been a good leader for the last couple of years, he lead BD to series ODI series wins against NZ and Zim and victories in the world cup against ENGLAND, Ireland and the Netherlands. You might say that was ODI's, but in all these cases he led the side well. Anyway, the tour is not over yet and there is still an ODI series up for grabs and I'm really looking forward to it :-)

Such a wise little guy!
BD does not take test cricket seriously anyhow and they are the beating boys for the rest of the world, now Zim has joined that world.
Blame their board and blame the poor preparation, travel arrangements and also the cricketers. Mental attitude and fortitude is the problem for the players, when they can change their mindset and fight back, then they will be on the road to recovery.
I am amazed and happy at the way Zim performed, I am not Bangladeshi, but I support both BD and Zim and i was hoping that Zim will return to test cricket. IMO, they were a far better team than BD, who wins? the team which is better. Also, you guys have discovered some good new players and from now on, there will be good cricket for the Zimbabweans. Best of luck for the pakistani tour
