At least 6 players place is questionable: nafees, rubel, abul, shahadat, riyad, nazim...

This is the first test this year. We had the entire year to plan for this game, prepare for this game in terms of pitch, player selection, gameplan etc. It seems we lacked in all dept.

Sure we can all hope for the best now, but with proper planning, team selection and right strategy i strongly believe we could have won this match...and we all know how desperately we need a Test Win!

Second pacer can't even bowl 10 overs and the main pacer bowls NO balls than real balls! Imagine what a third pacer could do! Windies would reach 500 already.

Mushy needs to take a course on basics of captaincy, it's amazing how naive he remained after all these years of cricket!

You just said what I am thinking, I couldn't say any better.
