Default the misery is over!

Bangladesh all out for 133...
Pilot once again the man!!!!!
taposh is also turning out to be quite handy with bat as well as the ball...do we have a potential allrounder here?!?!?!

what are we to do with our top order?!?!
Personally I think we should have a batting specialist coach for the top order....some one who will be with the team full time ...some former batsman cum coach from Bangladesh would do...Mohsin can focus on the pacers and fielding adn the rest then...what do you think?!?

but once again Pilot is DA MAN! He is the wicket keeper, captain and our most commited batsman....what more can you expect?!?!??!?!?!?

Oooh, what a relief - 133, that's more near 150 than 100.

Ntini opening on a scorcher pitch at 142 Kmph - what else can we expect. Its not only technicality, but also guts !

I also think that Rokon's days are numbered, atleast at the top.

The bowling was pretty good actually, and I really think, we are capable of beating Kenya 6/10 times.

I agree. For those nonbelievers, wait till the world cup, Masri alone will be too much for them to handle.

Default About a batting coach!

I just don't get it. If Pilot, who is not a specialist batsman by any standard, can stay at the crease for almost 2 hours and play over 80 balls, is it wrong us fans to expect the at least one of the top order to try to do the same? This is not the first time that Pilot has had to bail the team in dire straits.

When SA scored 301 runs, the outcome of the game had already been written. The only question that remained was by what margin would BD lose. Any sensible and responsible batsman would opt to take time to settle down and then score between 4 and 5 runs an over. Is it too much to ask our batsmen to act sensibly and responsibly?

If the batsmen are to learn anything from the tour then they must stay at the crease. They must see the bigger picture. The tours should be seen as preperation for the World Cup, and if BD is to have any chance of wining any of the mathes then they must learn NOW.

What I find frustrating is not so much BD losing game after game as BD not learning anything from their tours. I could stand BD losing 100 games but what I can't stand is the BD batsmen not showing ANY kind of professionalism. Any BD batsman is well capable of scoring some decent runs against any test playing team if he shows some common sense.

I would have to agree with Tehsin bhai in recommending a shrink.

Is it fate? Sometimes it is, but most of the time its the batsman. To paraphrase in one line:
"Haye Re Kopal Mondo, Chokh Thakite Ondho!!!"

All of them are blind
