Default Main problems in Bangladesh's batting

Im here to say what i honestly think is the major problem in the batting. Its the inability to rotate the strike and get singles. None of the players can hit the ball to long-on and long-off off the spinners during the middle overs. The middle order can't soak up any of the pressure when wickets fall, and only block everything, then when they realise that the runrate is plummeting, they go for a six and get out. Im blaming ashraful and roqib the most. They need to be taught how to score 4 or 5 singles in the middle overs, and then when the bad ball comes along, they can worry about the boundaries then. We always seem to get good starts now adays and then there is a major collapse after the middle order gets stuck. Any ball on on the stumps should be played down the ground, not blocked. What do you guys think?

Really? The batting? Since the dawn of Bangladesh cricket, the batting has been the biggest problem. I think we're all well aware of that.

Good observation. Our batters grew up playing short pitch cricket where finding the gap is the key. Dunno why they are so abject at that now.

the OP pointed at the main problem (which is not taking singles in the middle over) in the problematic area (which is batting), not necessarily at the problematic area itself, which we all aware of anyway. And he's right.

Today HisHim Amla Scorerd 253 (not out). What is special about the innings is that he had only 22 bounderies and not a single 6.b This sublime batting and a "how to" for our post-teen boys to learn from. I high school coach once told me "you cannot be out while at the bowlers end unless you are very unlucky". He always asked us to take singles and escape to the safety of the bowlers end. Onece you are there on the pitch for while bowlers and fielder tire and you see the ball better and that is when you can dominate. Our boys never learned the lesson.

the reason i made this post was because, alot of people in the forum, say that rokib and ash don't hit fours but take up alot of balls. I would prefer if they didn't hit fours but kept the singles going.

good point.
Sakib was perhaps the best single or double taker.
But since his 2 fast 100s vs Zim he looks to go hard against every delivery.
Hope JS teaches them so.
BTW,it's been long time we didn't see TI runout,his RBWckts has surely improved.
