I'm well and truly going for Bangladesh today. I love them doing well but at the same time it didn't please me to see Martyn's footwork and Hayden's confidence early on.

One question though...can the coach (Whatmore) not have sent guidance during drinks or something?

Obviously the game plan was cemented - that to limit the Aussies as much as possible, and thereby actually having a long shot. Though I cannot imagine how BD or the the commentators (Botham) can even think that 250 is gettable.
Ya, I think Bashar wanted to play safe, and didn't want to take the risk after a humiliating series. But, Like Coach said we need to believe that we can win, and we will win.

Until you start to try and win matches when we have a chance, we never will!!! It is as simple as that.
This quote says everything, At least Bashar should tried once. He can field defensive any time he feel needed. But he never tried to make more pressure on AUS. Simply dont understand.

There was once a picture posted on Prothom-Alo where Bashar was pictured reading the book called "The art of captaincy".

I have a feeeling he was holding it, just for the sake or taking picture. Did not read a word.

Hopefully his reign will end soon and we will find a sharp captain who has the extreme urge to win.

I don't think Bashar's reign has to end. he remains our best batsman. He just needs to learn. And to Pundit's point. can't any guidance be sent down at drinks or it is that just not done?

End of the story.
Not the end of story.

Have you ever considered respecting other people's opinion? Your liking is NOT the end of the world, others people must express their feeling. And this is a very good topic. Everybody like commentators, cricinfo staff, even observer is talking about it. Be open minded and respect other peoples opinion please.
I respect other people's opinion, but a thread with such title should never be a one-liner.

You can't blame everything on Bashar. Think about the coach who thinks a dogged second Test draw against Zimbabwe is better than the first Test win.
