Unbelievable innings by Mushi. And he has done it w/ the tailenders. Mainly Robin. Last wk partnership was the highest which was unbelievable. Loved the frustration from the SA pacers.

We have the team composition all wrong. I really don't think our batsmen are good enough for us to be able to take advantage of an extra one of them coming in at #8. Our bowlers, on the other hand, are that good - we can have an extra bowler in the team and expect it to pay off most of the time.

Imrul isn't ready for test cricket and so isn't Nayeem. Heck even Ashraful isn't ready (but that's a different story). We shouldn't even be introducing new players to the team at this point. If someone's injured, replace him with someone who's played test cricket in the past - don't make an underprepared newbie face the likes of Steyn and Morkel on evergreen surfaces and kill the flower in the bud (মেটাফোরটা কিঞ্চিত সমকামী হয়ে গেল কি?). Players leaving for the ICL is no excuse for not fielding experienced and better players.

Junaed is an opener, so play him at #1 or #2. Don't try to make a #3 out of a batsman who isn't one. As for the others, the following are different scenarios that we could consider (pick one and stick to it):

Scenario 1: Rakib can bat at #3, followed by Ashraful, Shakib and Mushfiq. #7 onwards, it should be all bowlers (with #7 being one that can bat quite a bit).

Scenario 2: Since Rakib is new to tests, we might prefer Mehrab over him at times (given his form at home) until the former finds his feet. In that case, push Ashraful up to #3 (he doesn't score anyways, so it doesn't matter where you put him; besides, as the senior batsman and captain, he's supposed to be "taking on a lot more responsibility", in the form of coming in to bat early). Let Shakib bat at #4, Mehrab at #5 and Mushfiq at #6.

Scenario 3 (silly, but could work): Rakib at #3, followed by Shakib, Mehrab, Mushfiq and Ashraful at #7 (if we must retain him because no one else is retained for captaincy, in the expense of a bowler - not good). Rakib and Mehrab can both be in the main XI that way.

Scenario 4 (the most extreme): Drop Ashraful. Don't ask me who'll captain, because I have no idea.

Whatever the case, I'd like to see Mushfiq bat at #6 or above and four specialist bowlers to back up Shakib's slow left armers. Mushfiq won't score 50's batting at #8 everyday: if we want more from him, we must ensure that he gets to bat with specialist batsmen/all rounders, not with tail enders (who, btw, look better than many from our top order).
Screw the IPL, I'm going to the MLC!

It seems like mushy is a man of his words but I dont want him to score 50's, I want 100's from him.

he's batting way low down the order..he shud come at #6...imrul is hogging a spot for no reason but so is ashraful (but we r stuck with him) it shud be in the following order..tamim, zunaed, rakib (not yet thou, maybe once he cements his place in the team) ashraful, sakib, mushy, enam jr/naem, mashrafee n so on

I saw this knock by little Mushy. I missed him when he was dropped, but he is a little fighter. I was awed by his last wicket stand with Alam. He is so courageous, trying to score the runs when wickets were falling around him. Mash was the biggest disappointment.

Way to go to go Mushy
