we need some more of these kinds of matches where a team in the final innings bats to play out for a draw. we need learn to bat in these match condition. once or twice agaisnt NZ, once against ENG and also this year against WI we had a chance where we could have Drawn the game by batting out more overs and killing more times. but as we dont have the mindset of playing these situations we fail miserably.

except that one game against ZImbabwe. golla and nafees iqbal made an opening partnership where they played out even the 2nd new ball. the Rajin saleh also played a long innings. BD played out almost 5+ sessions to draw that match.

yesterday it was only 37 overs to bat out. but i hope in future there will be games where teams will have to fight and survive for 3+ sessions. these situation are needed for batsman to enhance their skills for grafting in the crease.
