Default Does experience count?

"Captain Habibul Bashar made scores of 18 and 10, Fernando removing him on each occasion while the equally experienced Javed Omar managed 18 and nine."

Does experience count? Apparently, not for BD cricketers. What kind of example is Basher leaving for the younger players to learn from? His hook shot in the first innings was so out of line that he should consider stepping down. I do not know how he got out the second time (I went to bed). But I can guess. On the other side, Belim was trying to cut everything.. It did not matter how far out is line of the ball from the off stamp or whether it is swinging out or not.

I think Bangladesh should voluntarily take a break from the test cricket. It is shame and a torture that we do not have to endure time and again.
