You can't win competitive matches with such team combination.. They are overly dependent on Shakib's performance, just like our BD team and of course Shakib is a human being.. With Russel leaving the squad and Nasir not performing up to the mark the team is in deep trouble...
Some fans were already preparing for the Champions League. Hopefully this brings them back to earth. First qualify for the semi-finals of this tournament. And the bit about KRB being the weakest team in the tournament is simply not true. On paper they are one of the strongest, if not THE strongest. Four national team players in the XI. Best player in the country leading them. Dwayne Smith is a pro in this format, plays all around the world. Russell is one of the best upcoming players in the world. And then you have seasoned pros in Chanderpaul, Jayasuriya and Gibbs. The fact that they haven't lived up to their name is down to the management/captain and how they were used and not because they are bad players. The team didn't gel properly.
