Default The vincible Bangladesh team

Before folks take umbrage, let me preface this post with a recommendation that we fans need to temper the self-propelled emotional roller-coaster we ride. One moment it is all doom and gloom and the next moment our overconfidence takes us all the way to the top - where the denouement is inevitable. Let's face it - it was a great tour with just a touch of sourness at the end. Damn it. I grew up with the likes of Lloyd, Richards, Richardson, Holding, Marshall, Greenidge, Haynes, Dujon, et al from the West Indies ruling rampant. Would I have ever thought to see "whitewash, West Indies, and Bangladesh" as part of the same headline? Yes - but not quite how it actually transpired, did it? So my hats off to the vincible Bangladesh team. You have brought me joy, agony, anguish, pleasure, frustration and lots of wtf and what were you thinking?

It was a very good tour indeed, but we really need to sort our game out in T20s as well, because like it or hate it, it will prosper.

On to Zimbabwe, where much tougher times await.

Our batsmen need to stop thinking that every ball should be hit for a boundary in t20.

I don't think we have figured our how to T20. It is NOT hit and tickle. It is not slog-sweep from over 1. I think it is more intellectually challenging than an ODI and I do think this is where cricket is heading. Unfortunate but I see Test cricket being zealously protected by an elite few and the rest of the world cavorting to T20 cheerleaders.

We didn't take the game seriously at all today. This was a complete waste of the players' time and the fans' time. If the batsmen were there to play suicidal cricket from ball one, what was the point of playing a T20 in the first place? If we're not going to play proper cricket in T20s, we might as well not play this format of the game.

Bangladesh had no intention of playing proper cricket today, and there must be a reason for that. I'm struggling to figure our what it was.

It's all part of rough sex and BD playing hard to get with her fans. Hence, the shoddy, trifling fling today. There, I got vocabulary trebuchets too! :p

BD team is not a good team for T20 at all. We have serious problem from planning to implementation. The kind of players have been selected for T20 is a clear evidence that we still couldn't figure out what T20 is.

Players like Raqibul, Mehrab and Mushfiq have no place for T20 squad. Also game plan for the match should be changed. T20 is not only hit and run. Need to sorted out how to bowl more in the block hole (for pacers) and bowling tight not long hops and shorts pitches for the slow bowlers. Fielding is another point. From Dev's era we have been listenong that we can make quick pregess in fielding. The quality of ground fielding has been better than past but stil making use of sharp chances and chaching is not up to the standard.

So untill unless selection+game plan+ approach in the field change to right directions we more humiliating T20 defeats awaiting for us.

We won the Test and ODI series, so it was a good tour. But long way to go. Should not forget that it was a 2nd/3rd standard team.

After the first test I thought, well I dont care if BD loses the next 5 games[test 3 ODI, T20]
then after the second test I thought, well I dont care if BD loses the next 4 games
.................................................. ...............................................
So I personally dont care that BD lsot the game, and by the looks of it, the boys werent serious at all...it was like a picnic game for them. But absolutely no complains. great tour, the best for BD?

and coming back to T20, our batters think around 480[120X4] is a decent score in T20, that is why they want to hit 4s every delivery. They need to calm down, and understand that a score of 150-170 would be fine for T20. Can some one pass the message to the team :P ?

I'm actually glad that they lost. A lesson in humility, one very necessary reality check and a reminder that you can't slip-up at international level. I hope they take heed from this play with their heads cool against Zimbo.

It was clear that they wanted to grind the WI bowling to the ground, no respect for their opposition. It was inevitable, really. I'm glad that they got it out of their systems in the picnic cricket. I'm looking forward to see how they approach Zimbabwe.

As for T20, I firmly believe a juvenile cricketing nation like BD must not practice T20. Interrupts the players mindset too much. If we simply have to take part in this, we should have a group of cricketer handpicked and tailor made for this format only.(Hint: Warriors-HB anyone?)

On the money. There is certainly a method to this madness called 20/20. With years of practice and know how, we at least now know what it takes to play the different phases of a one day game. We know when we will win or lose a one day match. We have caught up to the process of a one day game, notwithstanding the win-loss column, but we are informed. I also think, it will have to take a simmilar path for the 20/20 version. We currently don't know what are our targets or limitations are. As the game of the future, we have to participate and play more 20/20's to accelerate that learning curve. It will come eventually.
