What should he have said instead? "Our bowling sucks, our batting is inconsistent and should stop playing cricket?" What he said is true - they're not used to the conditions, and they can take some positives. Everyone does that, duh. Such excuses in the Irish tour was not justified, but this is fine, understandable.
Honestly, I didn't expect BD to make it past to the group stage with this lineup in T20s. The pitches are batsman friendly - and inevitably BD lost the matches to much, much superior teams. Of course they could have improved in some areas, but still don't think they could have pull off a win anyhow. IMO.
