Positives:
1.Shahadat finally getting the line/length figured out. Nafis coming back,, Thank God.

2.Rafique did retire with his 100 wickets,, dispelling the rumor that he was finished.

3.We did push the SA to the 4th day on the first test ( again Shahadat heroics)

4. Bashar was dropped for a good reason, he will come back for his retirement series

5. We got some real exposore of our beloved players. Our young talents got a real taste of real test and now we know to restrain our expectations from Tamim/Zunaed/Mushfique/Sakib/Mashrafee.. We got the bitter pil in realizing why stats are leading indicators of what to expect from these players in the future..

Negatives:
1. Terrible selection board. We said enough about this.

2. Coach didnt make an impression at all ( or atleast I didnt see any change in results or personal improvements). He spoke the truth but didnt inspire any results as oppose to what Dav did during his first assignment at Australia.

3.Hence, Batsman learned nothing and did nothing with their youthful impatience

4.Goboy is now an official misery,, more than Pilot was for the team ( Atleast Pilot was never questioned about his wicketkeeping skills)

5.Ashraful is now becoming a Hassopod Pagol in pressure of captaincy( যেখানে ব্যাটিংয়েও দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকার সঙ্গে সমানে সমানে লড়েছিল বিসিবি একাদশ। সেখানে পারলে টেস্ট ম্যাচে পারা যায় না কেন? মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুলের জবাব শুনে অনেককে হাসি চেপে রাখতে হল, "প্র্যাকটিস ম্যাচ আর টেস্ট ম্যাচ আলাদা। টেস্ট টিভিতে লাইভ দেখানো হয়।" Source: BDnews24.com
