Default Bad day at work - but fire the boss pls!!

I know the game is still going on but it's fair to say that the batting has been abysmal. One might say this is a bad day at work but this time I am blaming the boss for it, yes batting boss that is. I have been pretty happy with Siddons but disgusted with the way our batsmen have batted so far today. Not a single wicket up untill now, the current pair being Nayeem and Shafiul, was due to Irish bowlers' brilliance.

What's worse is the running between the wickets. I can understand that some of the batsmen failed to read the pitch which it self is an irony. A pitch tailor made for us is unfamiliar to us???? As Ian Botham said, why change the pitch where Bangladesh scored 282 against Indian bowling? Well, the only difference is we were chasing at night but not today. And that brings me to the next question, why bat first today against the Irish when we batted 2nd against the Indians? I know Shakib thinks the dew isn't as bad as before but even then we should've let the Irish bat first and understand the pitch seeing how it behaves for batting.
Did all the questioning on letting the Indians bat first swayed Shakib's decision ? Is that how fragile he is? And what the hell is the management doing?

I believe we can win today but that dosn't hide the fact that we sucked big time in batting and batting first that is. So fire away.........................

when after scoring 282 you take an extra Batsman(ashraful) in the next match where you needed to get your bowling storng..that tells you the story. also we are so strong in our pace bowling we can keep our best bowler outside where he should have been in 15 at first place (with the injury)

Do you think you have anything to do with Bangladesh's decision to bat first today? After all you did share a cup with one of the support staffs.

Of course, after the WC, who wants to shoot their own foot, oh wait, may be our management does. Actually I'm kidding, I still think we have pretty good support staff, especially our bowling and fielding side, batting staff is good too it's just that our batters lack so much mental strength that it will need twice the work for anyone to make them better than what they are now. If we can keep the same trio then I'm sure Siddons will have less on his plate to deal with thus take care of the rest of the batting weaknesses.

Said it before and I'll say it again, we are unable to set a target!! Our batsmen need a target in order to plan. Our batsman are minimum requirements players! They will never exceed expectations. You only bat first if you think your batsmen can exceed expectations. They simply can't!!

We are better off chasing, always!! That's how our batsmen will learn to rotate strike and realize the value of taking singles and twos. Whenever we try to set a target, we discount the value of ones and twos because we are aiming for 500 runs instead of 300!! My baby niece could get 6 runs per over on these flat pitches. I blame the coach!!
