Both of these players lost us games during the very recent past. They are out of form/not worthy at this level. Taijul/Zia were in form yet they get ignored by selectors. So I would blame the selectors first.

Then according to the selectors, final 11 is picked by coach and captain. Apparently the coach and captain did not learn from their mistakes.

Well now that you picked them, use them with caution! When you see spinners were dominating, why keep bring medium pacers and letting the pressure go? It was very clear HK was struggling big time at 50/5. It was a perfect time to bring in Sabbir and Nasir. But the captain just don't get it! He brings in Rubel/Al Amin/Reza. Al Amin was okay but the point is pacers were not creating pressure rather letting the pressure go.

While all these stupid mistakes were going on, the head coach was just sitting there and did not do anything. At these crucial moments, the coach must act and send messages to the captain. But he just sits there and watches the game as if he is just a spectator.

Mushy is too naive to be a captain. And when you have such a naive person as a head coach, it just bound to cost us game after game.

Change must start from selectors, then both captains and head coach needs to be replaced. Otherwise at this pace we will be just getting embarrassed day in and day out.
Golf is good, no umpire needed!
