Team management has no clue whatsoever about game situation. Every batsman in the side is there to score runs. So he will block and others will play their strokes? This is nonsense.

If he just plays through then he will score 100 from 180 balls and we will score 225 with 3 wickets down. What's the use.

And not every batsman are supposed to play from the word go and make up for him. And there is also a point about batsman being set.

If you are set you cannot stick around scoring at 50sr especially with wickets at hand. This is the kind of garbage thinking makes us such a poor side in U-19 level. We have amassed plenty of plate finals and hardly qualified to the next level.

I am sure that the fans who are agitated aren't agitated because he is boring to watch but because he is not effective.

Name one batsman in this day and age is in the team to bag at a SR of 60-70? And there we have an opener batting at 45-50! Are you kidding me?

We scored 256 only against Scotland on a good batting wicket where Saif scored 49 from 108 balls and rest scored 207 from 192 deliveries. Speaks volumes.

Even in the first match. He scored 6 from 31. How does that help the team? Well, it doesn't.
