Default What happened to our Tail?

I used remember, we took pride in how our tail was gutsy and good but in this Tri-series they just havent performed they way I thoght they would.

I'm not saying they all should hit 50 but they used to get 15-20 runs.

1. Mashrafe Mortaza - Has had one good knock of 29* and then really hasn't done much.

2. Pilot - With the exception of Today really hasent done much

3.Rana- I know he's only played 2 matches and only batted in one match but only scored 1 run in his opportunity.

4.ChaCha - One match and a duck.

5.Rafique - Played that one good partnership w/Aftab and did ok in that 391game.

The reason for the failure of our tail enders is vicious swing in English pitches. They are not top class batsmen nor are they used to blocking or slogging in these conditions.

Given the right type of pitch where Mashrafee and Rafique can still stand 5 feet away from the stumps, and get away with it because of no swing, they will sizzle once again.

Lack of technique has always been apparent in Pilot and Rana's batting but they can play some stubborn cricket when the ball isn't swinging 40 degrees.

As for Chacha, I wish i knew the people he hangs out with everyday in BD. I would be in the national team too then even though I have no qualifications.

Moral of the story, don't sweat it. Our tail will be back in no time minus Chacha, who quite frankly should be put out of his misery.

I wonder if our tail had been feeling a little too 'optimistic' about their own abilities after playing very well against Zimbabwe.

Not really fwullah...they actually require no technique...itz just a matter of gettin runs.
And yeah...they did fail to live up to our expectations...I think cuz of some stability shown by our Top and middle order....

Or is it us, who failed due to our unrealistic expectation from our tailenders?

40 degree swing? I have yet to see that. Anyway our tailenders (not the tails) failed against half-baked spin also. Tailenders can slog cosisetently if the top order also has performed. Slogging is a matter of confidence. You hit or miss. There is bound to be production if there are enough wickets left to slog.

In England playing old ball is not as easy as it is in sub-continent...........In England old ball also moves around a bit.......and also because there is almost no dustyness in pitches in England.......the ball does not become that much soft.......so it also bounces more..........here lies our tail's failure

The 40 degree swing comment was obviously an exaggeration to emphasize the vicious swing in England, which ofcourse went over your head. If u think the failure of the tail enders had nothing to do with the alien conditions in England and was a matter of confidence then I have no further comments.
