Default Reasons For 2-0 So Far?

Any number of possible reasons for BD success against WI in the ODI's:

1. Change of shirt. Players feel like they are playing for another team< instead of Bangladesh and have stopped playing like Bangladesh

2. Shakib's absence. With Shakib, both Test matches were lost and the team played poorly. Without Shakib team spirit appears high and they are winning.

3. Anamul's presence. Without Anamul, both Test matches were lost and the team played poorly. With Anamul team spirit appears high and they are winning.

4. Red ball/white ball. With the white ball, the team gets a new one at each end. Easier to hit when hard and more bounce and turn when bowling.

Of course the above is not true.. but some might be looking for things as silly as this to explain. It will be as silly as people saying now "don't change anything". We beat NZ 4-0 and things needed changing then. They still require it now. No papering over the problems should deflect the BCB from sorting things out.

The facts are this - Bangladesh has played played good, international cricket. West Indies has been poor batting and bowling. This is simple truth why BD are 2-0. Totally deserved.

It seems to be that the length of match affects directly the concentration of the BD team - Long Test matches find the team out, shorter matches are more likely to be won therefore. The problems are deep rooted and require a cultural cricket revolution, strong coaching set up and a mentality of development.

Cosmetic wins will not change the issues. But for now, let's enjoy the successes for they are few and far between. As I have said many times before, the brilliant fans deserve something to cheer about.
No Cheating. No Corruption. No Excuses.
Players/Coaches have a duty to report and help clean up our wonderful game of cricket. We are the guardians of the game for the fans.
