Your team struggled against spin and you dont have a solid batsmen in your lineup that can ensure that you guys can make big runs in ODIs. Yes i agree WI are a settled team when it comes to tests and T20s but frankly you guys dont have wat it takes when it comes to ODIs. Your very lucky to have Kemar Roach who rattled our batting lineup in the 4th ODI or else it would have been an easy ODI series win for Bangladesh.
Your team was simply not good enough in this ODI series. Just face the facts.
SAMMY SAID "WE'RE GOING FOR A FIVE NILL WHITEWASH", does that sound like a man who had respect for his opponants?
of course not, thus THEY TOOK YOU LIGHTLY, against Australia, he never said, against Nz, he never said that, why only against Bangladesh did he say that? BECAUSE THEY TOOK YOU LIGHTLY, which is why they decided to send home Ramdin and Deonarine instead of keeping them in the odi squad,
I believe we missed Dwayne Bravo badly aswell as he's a fantastic batter and can bowl well too, he would have played in the role Smith and Russell played in and strengthened our batting in the middle, Ramdin would have too, but it wasn't to be,
And you can mock our ODI side if you like but the truth is if both sides had their best teams on the park and it was an important world cup match 9 times out of 10 we win.
