If Siddons can somehow transform these bunch of losers and make them score 240 on a consistent basis, I will consider this a big success. Now, bowling and fielding has gone downhill and thats a concern. But once we get Sakib back and Rasel is fully fit again, there is no doubt in my mind our bowling will improve. Losing a proven performer like Rafiq will take some time to recover and we need to be patient with these bunches.
Agree 100% and about bowling i think we are in the same place as we were before. look at the stats. when ever it was a batting pitch like here in Pak or back in BD other test team scored 300. Hell even Kenya scored 300 against us. so yeah we need to improve on that but that doesn't mean it went down hill. we need a bowling coach. how can a guy who never bowled against these test teams or played 1st class cricket will teach where to bowl? doesn't make any sense...
