Default My verdict (from the spot)

Oct 7: The darkness in front of me as I sit in the press box is better than what I witnessed all day.
But to be serious, it was just disappointing cricket to be honest. None of the batsmen did anything worth sitting up and taking notice. Only a small passage when Ash blasted six boundaries but that too fizzled out after 20-odd balls. Nafees just played out too many deliveries.
West Indies look poor with the bat but good when bowling short, especially Rampaul.
He was quite diplomatic in the end, not really mentioning their plans to bowl more short stuff in the weeks to come. As if he'd tell the media, such is our questions!

Highlight of the day: Ravi Rampaul's second spell.

J.O. of the day: Shahriar Nafees 16 off 51 balls.

Stat of the day: Five WI batsmen gave catches to long on or long off.

DISSAPOOINTING to the power of infinity (meh.....it always is actually), but after such t20 matches NEVER expected they'll perform so poorly.....BCB should definitely take Kapali....he's been very good and consistent.....and as for SN....I reckon he should open with TI and for position 3...let Shakib or Sir Ash to do their job.......hope Law does some strategy regarding short balls/Rampaul...

October 11, Twenty20 against WI

Everyone looked at Mushfiq and Shakib from the word go and none were disappointing. According to one player in the field, the new skipper looked as if he was on this job for years, such was his confidence.

Mushfiq's six to seal the win is certainly a moment worth remembering but more importantly, it was a timely boost ahead of the ODI series given the skipper's tendency to take every failure too seriously.

Highlight of the day: Need I repeat?

J.O. of the day: Rubel, why oh why did you change your length in that 3rd over?

Stat of the day: This was the first T20 international in Mirpur. BCB?

If anyone was trained to be the next BD captain through the age group and done that that job well, it was Mushy. I think before Tamim and Shakib, Mushy was the man in that U-19 dream team that everyone knew of and talked about. So it's time for him to outshine them again. I would love to see a healthy competition between these 3 players to out-perform each other which will only help the team.

October 13: FIRST ODI vs WEST INDIES

There's nothing routine about the way the Tigers go down!

The game was a huge chance for Mushfiqur Rahim to really stamp his authority but he now will have to begin work on the boys' body language when the opposition makes a good start. But what beats me is how a team that is trained to be the best athletes they can be, slump in the matter of 30 overs?

Batting-wise, they couldn't do any better given their regular opener was shunted to No 3. The Tigers have this curious rigidity in their planning, a spanner thrown means they put their hands up and walk away from the crime-scene.

The crowd was superbly loyal, given it was tremendously hot. A win beckons on Saturday.

Highlight of the day: Pollard's disdainful flick vs Shakib's jaunt over mid-off

J.O. (Javed Omar) of the day: Naeem will henceforth be ridiculed as Chhokka Naeem.

Stat of the day: Simmons's acceleration to the 100.

What do you think of Mushy's captaincy? As cricman mentioned in chatroom: "No creativity, an extension of Shakib" I agree. Good batsman yes? But captaincy wise I think he has a miles to go.

Disappointing that after 11 years of test cricket we still cannot chase totals of 300...AT HOME! 300+ totals are a dime a dozen in modern ODI cricket. The equation is simple. Score at roughly a run a ball. Try to take singles off every delivery. But the vast majority of our batsmen (Shakib being the notable exception) seem to believe that every delivery can only be blocked or hit to the boundary. As a result, we end up with way too many dot balls. What surprises me most is that we're on to our third Australian coach, and we still haven't figured this s*** out.

Mushy has a long way to go but he has till the end of the year. You can't really plan unless you're given freedom. In this series, he and Law have the selection authority so let's see how that works out.

His first lesson should be to not take every defeat personally.

At some stake Mo, someone has to take responsibility though. The excuse culture that it "isn't my fault" is too rife. Siddons had it. Shakib and Tamim have it. I don't want Law and Mushy to start having that too.

I would give more respect to someone who said: "This is what we are going to try and do but today it didn't work" or perhaps: "these are our plans to make the team into a good one"

While I agree we're crap...and 300+ scores are becoming more and more common, to date there have been only 39 successful chases of scores 300 or more.

Whatever the state of the pitch, that was going to be a monumental chase.

So Isam bhai, where is today's verdict?

Were we any good today?

Do we have any replacement of Ashraful or Alok yet?

This is a candid appraisal. Don't take all my opinions seriously please.

October 15: 2nd ODI

First of all, the ego has to go. And not just for one game. It has to remain steady and only return when necessary (like when Pollard fondles you). This ego will not do any good to the top-order who believe that taking down a fast bowler is by hitting out from Ball One.
If I, a club player at best, can understand this, how can they not? Tamim and Imrul started the rot by being silly. One just had to see out the good ones and then go after the bad balls. Instead, these two had no intention of staying in. Okay, Roach isn't the bowler everyone fears him to be but once you wear down the man after 3-4 overs, it is easier and then you have the goody on offer. Then again, who am I kidding?

As for Ashraful, it's time for a break...probably as long as it takes him to outscore everyone in the country and then return. He hasn't done anything in two years and at the risk of getting hit by brickbats, I say it was a huge mistake to bring him back so quickly. Time to give Shuvogoto Hom a go and he should be continued with till he fails 4-5 times.

Nasir looks to be on his way as an international player but I would still suggest him being more tight around the off-stump.

Mushy was superb..the manner in which he guided loose-cannon Kapali and Naeem was in itself excellent. His technique has always been sound and today he just did what he does best these days, bring the team back from hell.

Highlight of the day: Mushy's innings

J.O. of the day: Kapali. Poems could be written on your batting but you don't stay long enough to complete a sentence.

Stat of the day: Nasir moved from 26 to 50 in 12 balls.

^Good thoughts Isam. Ego or not, Tamim needs to be replaced by Nafees next match. I have utmost respect for the man and where he comes from but he cannot let his selfish desire of my-way-or-highway get in the common interest of the team.
