Today BD 202/2 (35th over) with 8 wickets left.

BD 320/7 (50 overs).

Any other team what score would they have got? With 15 overs left?

We need a specialist hitter down the order, who will come in and whack a quick 20 ball 50!

Yeah brother, at that moment I was genuinely hoping we are going to cross the 500 mark today!

One thing we know for sure (by now) that in these kind of situation (you mentioned) Riyad and/or Nasir is not the solution.

340/350 looked very realistic at 35th over.
But damn, Ullah played some dots!

And none of our other players have that explosiveness in them.
At that stage we needed someone who could hit proper.

Even a 30 ball 50 type of batsman!
Sabbir with his 20 got us to 320. Maybe should have come early.

Even Nurul would have done better than Nasir and Riyad today.

I know Riyad and NAsir is there for Insurance Policy i.e. if front-end collapse, but do we need both? Can we effort to have both of them in lower end when some slogging is needed?

WOW! Afridi and Gayle in the same list. Some achievement!!!

Sabbir is the most explosive batsman we have now. Saifuddin has the potential to be another one. Mash can't produce anymore. Mehedi Maruf could have been our T20 specialist if he was given enough opportunities.

What is "explosive batsman"? Are they similar to suicide bomber or Harikiki pilots?

Then we had plenty in the past.

Someone who hits sixes like missiles without too much effort.
Someone that can win matches for your team with sheer explosive batting.

Someone that entertains the fans, makes cricket look enjoyable.

And how exactly will you market it to the fans of Raqibuls, Chanderpauls, Dravids and Gollas of the world?

They have test cricket

ODI/T20 you need explosiveness. Remember not all have to be explosive batsman. At least 1-2 that keeps everyone on the edge just because opposition fears them for their explosiveness in batting, which can take the game away easily. Every team has a blend of different kind of players (technical players, touch players, situation players etc). We need to focus on finding those explosive batsman.

Teams these day's consistently score 300+ in ODI. in World tournaments the total has been increasing every time. The sooner BD finds those players that can play with High strike rate, the better for us, of course they need to be consistent.

Chanderpaul once made a 67-ball test century...so ease off of his case.

He's the best.

Test cricket is beautiful for different reasons.

Not for the explosiveness like ODI/T20.

Entertainers make shorter formats interesting.

Not in cricket. It is hard to be a successful entertainer as a cricketer.

The explosiveness which Gayle/McCullum/Afridi/Pollard etc bring to the shorter formats is pure entertainment. It's not one off, they play the same most of the time, with that explosive batting mind-set. They win their team matches (which is the most important thing) apart from being a fear factor for the opposition teams.

Bowlers also win their teams matches. Fielders also. Direct hit can change a game.

Stunning catches can be the turning point in a game.

So can a retarded person.

Explosiveness is relative, Chanderpaul has done it, Misbah has done it, Younis Khan has done.

We need batsmen(as Matchadda has wisely said) "that can play to situation of match"

Afridi's batting is very entertaining, 4,4,6,0,W

This is like expecting Gayle to chase down 100+ runs on a 5th day with lower order to win.

Can Jos Butler be considered a explosive batsman?
I don’t think his made the list yet, but very close...

Soon might be included alongside Gayle/McCullum/Pollard/Afridi/Munro!!

Is exploding the same as a fast bowler reaching his top speed (climaxing)?
