I think the problem is with the approach we have. When a wicket falls, regardless of what the target/RRR is, it is essential to settle in and consolidate. That is simply missing in our team. Be it our last generation messiah[Ash] or present generation one[shakib].
And with bowling, once a bowler gets hit for 4/6, you often see the bowler taking that extra few seconds before the next one. Just trying to unsettle the batsman, but today when OramSlaught was on, I could not see much thinking going on. These things are often more difficult to comprehend when some one's on field, but the team management/coach must have some say at these stages.

About what Baundule said, tamims 151 was marvelous, was brilliant, and what not. But what if he was caught off one of the shots he played when he was in 30s? These sorts of innings/attitude will only yield us short time, spark like success. We need players like Ian Harvey, Damian Martyn, Hanse Cronje, who will give the team 30-40 runs or 1-2 wicket every single game rather than one *magical* innings followed by string of failures
GODISNOWHERE now read it again.
