Shakib again proved that he doesn't have any leading capabilities left in him.

Using spinners from one side may be a good ploy on this wicket. But using spinners continuously from both sides of the wicket like 5th day makes you a laughing stock.

The pacers could have taken few wickets (may be) if brought to attack early. We wasted the early moisuture and the new balls.

35 overs before lunch, 2 overs to the pacers . I wonder how many test teams in history have such a start to a test match and we are talking about a pitch in West Indies not even a dust bowl in Dhaka. What is the point of taking the two pacers then , to be used as part timers when the spinners need rest? Giving majority overs to spinners is fine but why not let the quicks bowl even 10 first overs when conditions are best for pacers.

He is a candidate for the worst captain in history of cricket let alone just Bangladesh

I didn't watch this Test and cannot comment on what happened. I'm only responding to your perhaps rhetorical question because it brought back some memories.

India in the 70s used to regularly use pacers to 'take the shine off the ball' and let the spinners get stuck in. Sunil Gavaskar even opened the bowling a few times.

Dont get carried away here , he was wicket less in the first innings where everyone got a wicket. One fifty and one good bowling performance in the entire series (on helpful conditions where Miraz has five wickets too) , and we think he is justified in taking extended holidays as the captain? That is the problem with us fans , and the entire team not performing doesn't help either so we get ecstatic with any performance he puts up and he is pardoned for everything

whether it’s justified or not, we have no power to pardon or punish.

The only power a spectator, any spectator, has is to be content with what is on the screen.

Today my screen said BD scored less than 50 in a test match. Liton scores half of that. The only power I have to be happy for Liton.

Do I have any other power? Do you? No. we are simply watching a movie unfold. Your happiness, your sadness makes no difference to the outcome of the movie.

So choose to be content.

There's no justification for taking extended vacation. Piss poor from Shakib. But he atleast shows up to play. But there are some guys who are perpetually in vacation mode, and have been for a decade.

It's not his fault he keeps getting selected in test team

Then whose fault is this? Selectors or Senior players?

We lost a head coach for dropping Riyad in SriLanka. Atleast that triggered player's revolt which eventually forced the coach to resign.

Part of the reason riyad still gets selected is because youngsters haven’t taken their opportunities and proven to be better, at best they’ve shown that they give a similar output to riyad.

Liton, sabbir and soumya have all played 10/11 tests and none of them have hit a ton. They’ve showed glimpses of potential here and there but this is how a senior player like riyad still maintains his place, we are looking for someone better than him and youngsters haven’t been showing that.

I do think some youngsters need more of a go, and consistently not intermittently, namely continue with liton for a while longer and give shanto a try. I don’t think other youngsters like zakir have shown enough yet to be given consistent chances unless it’s for the speciality keeper role or the pace unit which is currently and has historically been the worst facet of the BD test game.

Just wondering, do people still consider nurul the best gloveman? Had some blunders this series.

As far as shakib on holiday, for me it’s not about whether he performs or not, it’s one thing to go off and prepare yourself for a series (which consists of proper training the best way you think it’s done for you), it’s another thing to have a long break, play some IPL matches under your own decision making, have a poor series (certainly as captain) against Afghanistan in t20s (after being t20 prepped from IPL) then taking a holiday and not having much prep time for an away series.

At very least as captain he has some responsibility to be a good role model and set a certain standard to the rest of he team, personally I think any professional athlete needs to have certain work ethic standards for themselves (just like anyone doing any other job).

While these are all wonderful justifications for why Riyad is in the squad, the truth is rather more human.

Shakib Tamim Mushy Riyad watch each other’s back knowing if one of them go, the others may also have be forced out at any point. So strength in numbers. Back each other, stay seniors. Make money. Retire when they want to retire. Middle finger to anyone who comes in the way.


It’s a great brotherhood system and they will always feature in any Bangladesh team in any format. Guaranteed.

Riyad had been assigned as the vice captain. He is going to be picked in the test squad unless he lose his position.

These 4 have been playing for ages. I agree in some formats which they are not suited, the seniors might have some influence to back this senior group. But apart from that they are there for their merit.

Mahamdullah and Mushfiq have a Brother in Law bond, but it is quite essential for them to back each other up to keep the sisters they have married in peace.

Tamim has the backing of blood from Cha Chu Akram Khan.

What I dislike is these 4 use politics so that they can control the coaches.

arey miah, there are already a lot of dimwitted mullah fans here that will go to any lengths to defend the indefensible ("middle order allrounder" is still my favorite). Might as well add chehara to the list.
