my grades:

aftab: B (much more consistent than ash, yet still failed to live up to talent)
tamim: F--
nazim: F (what happened???)
alok: D (not enough chances so he escapes the F)
sakib: C (batting was D, bowling was B, average is C)
junaed: B (brilliant lone innings, but was dropped thrice)
mushy: C (batting was D but was too low down the order, keeping was OK)
riyad: B (i don't consider him a batsmen, bowling was pretty good)
rasel: B+ (i think people started him out of spite at the end)
razzak: A (can't really get any better)
mash: D (he is NOT a T20 bowler - bring rajib next time, idiot selectors!)
nadif: incomplete
Mind explaining how zunaed was "dropped" three times? He only got one go. He couldn't have been dropped if he wasn't even in the playing eleven.

He meant catches.

Here's a nice lively one from Daily Star

Tigers' T20 Report Card
Star Sport Report

As the Bangladesh team return home from South Africa today, The Daily Star Sport have chosen to give an X-ray report of the Tigers and its support staff's performance in the ICC Twenty20 World Championships. The marks, out of 10, are solely a product of our judgement.

Mohammad Ashraful (captain)

If achievements were tallied, Ashraful had a handful in South Africa. Apart from scoring the match-winning 61 against West Indies and seeing his team through to the Super Eights, the scoop shot is now called the 'Ashraful'.

His curious three-ball 10 against South Africa at least got him to his other double-figure score, which shot his strike rate to 181.

But his bowling, a bit of off-spin this time, was as good as a tail-ender's batting and should be tried only in the nets from now on.

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza

Statistics come a distant third in the phrase 'lies, damned lies…' but in terms of Mashrafe's effort, it wasn't lying much. Either he was unfit or was not keen to bowl just four overs. At least he can console himself that one of his two wickets was Sanath Jayasuriya.

His batting bore a similar pattern. He just wasn't interested and worse, he played everything away from the crease. It was entertainment, of the wrong kind.

Abdur Razzak

He is the only left-arm spinner to beat batsmen with pace. And when he really lets it go, it takes a good one to stop him. Maybe it was this speed which prompted the captain to give him the new ball but that was the only blemish for him in this campaign.

With seven wickets and some tight spells, Razzak was brilliant. But he could have had more if his teammates took all the chances off his bowling. Almost every batting line-up struggled against him.

Aftab Ahmed

He pulled (his favourite shot) Ravi Rampaul for a six and that was his first scoring shot. Fact that it took him four balls to hit his first six was a surprise. He went after the hosts in a way that scared them but subdued efforts in the next round, were mystifying.

Even then, his breathtaking shots against the fast bowlers made everyone sit up but such batting never sees the light of day but does it really matter in Twenty20?

Alok Kapali

Someone forgot to tell him that it was Twenty20 or somehow, he missed the point. That being said, why he was continued for three matches is another matter. He didn't bowl much and neither took the only chance that came his way.

It will be another form of cricket where his fans would rue: Hay Kapali.
