Yes coaching of course can be a factor but that can’t be the excuse for the senior players who have been playing test cricket for 10 years give or take.

Tamim, mushy, shakib and riyad should know themselves well enough to best prepare themselves for an upcoming test series.

One thing BCB could do is prepare a longer tour so that the team arrives earlier and plays more practise matches, these days teams don’t seem to do that too much.
