Default Disappointed and Upset but Proud

No Shakib! No Tamim! And only defending 220 odd.

Still pushed India to the extreme limit.

It’s not a heartbreaker because the game was never ours unlike the previous losses. India always had the game and we kept coming back and stayed in it till the very last ball.

6 off 6 with a part timer bowler and India having 3 wickets in hand was never possible.

Oh well! The wait continues.

Kind of similar to the CT semifinal how our batsmen all collapsed once a long partnership was broken.
But unlike the CT semifinal, our bowling was great, especially the pacers! Miraz would be most upset, because he could not get a chance to redeem himself after his 4 overs today.

This Asia Cup was always meant to be created for making it easier for India to win. They let India's campaign start late due to England tour and giving them an extra break and their first opponent was going to be the ones from qualifiers. Then they changed Super 4 schedule to help India while we had to play 2 matches in less than 24 hours while having to travel as well. And then guess what, they decided to intentionally put Bangladesh vs Pakistan a day later than Afghanistan vs India while every other Super 4 days had 2 games. This further helped India by giving them extra rest.

And all of this happened with every team traveling while India playing all their games in Dubai. Say what you want, this wasn't a fair tournament.

All in all, they did well to reach the final and lose in a hard fought final. But remember, this Asia cup is the rehearsal of WC. Every team will try to find the chink in their armor and repair it before the WC. We better do the same.

Something happened to our fielding, it was like real tigers were fielding...

It was the fielding that made us so competitive...

Except Liton others had brain farts and umpires al;so favoured them, thus makes the winning cup still far away from BD tigers

It didn’t hurt as much as the other close losses. Because we lost those games from a very winnable position.

BUT this game, we never were full in full control in the 2nd innings. It’s amazing how we kept ourselves in the game.

Fizz once again was clutch towards the end.

The sad thing is they really didnt need to do that. They are the best team on paper, they didnt need all this string pulling.

Given our performance today, they definitely did. Fatigue did play a part and I am going to guess we didn't get enough training for the match tactics while India had the extra day.

India was missing a few key players too.

Well played BD. We are definitely, by a small margin perhaps, the second best team in Asia.

Top order needs to be sorted out. Use the ZIM series to test them out.

And Fizz proved he’s one of the best, if not the best pace bowler in Asia.

They were missing Kohli. We were missing Tamim and Shakib. It was so bad that we had to open with Miraz. Yes it paid off but this was a “jora tali” team, put together to face India in the final.

And I agree. Fizz is the best pacer in Asia. This tournament confirmed it.

India was only missing Kohli while we missed both Shakib and Tamim.

I just wonder that maybe we are squandering chance after chance, and we may look back 4-5 years from now when Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiq and Mashrafe have retired, that we did not capitalise on a "golden generation" and win at least one of these damned Asia cups ...

I am proud of performances leading up to the final. Not proud if this performance. They collapsed under pressure again.

You cannot excuse the epic fail that happened in batting after 116-0 with all the senior players absolutely shitting the bed, except an out of form Sorkar. Being proud of **** like this is how teams end up perpetually being 2nd, 3rd etc.

Mollah needs to **** off. If he is a pressure player, then he would have performed in most of the 3 finals, quarter finals and semi finals that we have made. But he fails more often then not. So its more fluke then being clutch.

Musfhfiq was playing hurt I think, so I could give him a pass, but at the eod bhaira bhai failed the team once again in a tight match against India.

If we put up 270 and lost, i would be alot more understanding. The collapse from batting today was fatal and cannot happen in a finals.

Mashrafe can hold his head high. Not so sure about other senior players.

Thats 4 ****ing finals we have farted on. We just dont have the IT factor teams like Pakistan have where they can inch out wins against big teams in finals.

Loser team.

Batting wasn't up to the mark. This has been the issue for a long time. Most of the time it's always one or two guys who are doing the scoring. It wasn't surprising to see the middle order not capitalizing from the platform that was set by the openers. This has happened before countless times.

I must say Afghanistan was very consistent in this Asia cup. They managed to get around 250 almost every game and bat out the 50 overs. This gave them good chance in every single game with the bowling attack they had. Their fielding was also brilliant.

This Asia cup was exciting in spite of the ridiculous scheduling.

Does Bangladesh suffer from stage fright against India? I mean, I'm pretty sure that if Afghanistan were playing Rashid Khan would have been all over India's batsman like a cheap suit, and they would not have choked and squandered a 120/0 start. We need to fix the mentality.

Mashrafe looked like he was in a bad mood in his speech. Let's hope he gives the boys a good spray coz near enough is not good enough for this talented team.

They batted well, they bowled well. I don't think their fielding was brilliant or had the same intensity as Bd/Ind/Pak, which is why they could not be clinical and close out games. And Shahzad is a very lousy keeper.I didn't realize he was this bad before this Asia cup.
