At the moment, the team management is likely to persist with Soumya. However, if he doesn't mend his ways soon, he might have to take a step back and play the role that the other openers in the team, the likes of Imrul and Anamul Haque, have been playing for so long: knocking at the national door.

The unrest beneath Soumya's first duck
Quote:
Going solely by the opener's ODI numbers so far, a batting average above 46 and a total runs tally of 692, one would expect Soumya to be in phenomenal touch. After all, he does currently have the highest batting average in ODIs among his teammates. However, the fact remains that the left-hander has had an awful past year and the reason that has not received as much focus is because Bangladesh and Soumya have barely played any ODIs in that time.

The poor patch is clear when one observes the left-hander's domestic record.

In the last year, the 23-year-old has had 51 outings and this includes first-class, List A and T20 fixtures. In these 51 outings, Soumya has crossed the 50-run barrier just twice. He scored an 84 against Abahani in the Dhaka Premier League recently. And prior to that he had scored a cautious 58 against Chittagong Vikings in the Bangladesh Premier League in December 2015.

There is no doubt about Soumya's talent. He was one of the reasons why Bangladesh managed to achieve their magical run against Pakistan, India and South Africa in 2015.

The team management reckons that he has the ability to destroy some of the best attacks in the world when on song. However, when he is out of rhythm, he seems a completely different player.

At the moment it seems as though the management is waiting for that one good knock from Soumya; one that can light the fire and help him get his venom back ahead of the England series and next year's Champions trophy.

However, the wait unfortunately has been quite long so far.
To add to this, other news reports said he is struggling even in nets. When someone is so badly out form, it's hard to understand why the team management is insisting him to continue to play instead of asking him to fix his issues on the sideline. We now have a batting coach dedicated to work with players on such issues.

In the last match, he took a valuable slot away from team. If not for him, with little re-arrangement of the batting order, team management could have blooded in Mosaddek (who seems to be in best form of his career in contrast).

"So badly out of form?" What are you talking about? You make it seem like he has a streak of ducks or something.

FYI : here are his recent ODI scores (not Kolabagan vs Bagerhat where it doesn't count) but OD Frikkin I against top teams.

40, 27, 88, 90

As pointed out by DS reporter, those stats are more than a year old, that's why DPL, BPL, and T20I stats are much more relevant judging his current form (emphasis on the word current).

You missed my point entirely Eshen. DPL, BPL is by no means any yardstick of performance be it current or past. A man doesn't suddenly forget how to play once he comes to crease. If we went by NCL, many no-namers would be riddling the squad entirely.

At the end of the day, stats are that, stats. They miss the big picture completely.

^^ I would have ignored the stats too if not for him struggling in nets also. Currently, stats are well supporting the observation he is out of form.

Not trashing him, it's rare for a batsman, especially for an opening batsman not to face a dip after initial success. It's critical how he is handled now. Hathuru is trying to bring him back to form by keep letting him play. But at same time, we have to keep in mind he almost cost us a match when we could not pick another batsman in the best form of his career. We have to consider that a home series like this is the best opportunity to blood in a rookie while an off color batsman can be worked on the side.

It will be a big loss if SS is dropped (even for very valid reason i.e. for lack of recent performance). He is one of those rare type of explosive players who (in his good form) can take the game away from the opponent best bowlers and make his team mates' (other batsman) life much easier.

If not him, we need someone like him at #2 not someone like Imrul or Anamul (no offence). Player like SS and Sabbir in top order can make 300 target so much easier.

Let me tell you guys what may motivate him for the next match - "Soumya Sarker is one of the icon players for BPL 2016".

He is a special player. However, I will still drop him at the moment for his own good and slot in Nasir (for his tight spin bowling as 6th bowler) OR Mosaddek (for his current batting form).

Soumya can still be used as 12th man for his fielding.

You don't make sense when you try or not. All these years of not trying is taking a toll.

I couldn't make any sense out of your post. Try again.

With Imrul in the team, batting line up can be readjusted to give SS some confidence in this series only?

Tamim-Imrul opens
Shabbir @3.
Then
Riyad,
SS coming before Shakib and Mushi.

That way he comes in when the it is as down time spinner moment. may be can blast his way of this funk. This is just an idea. Losing SS before England is not an option. Plus we will visit NZ soon where he would be crucial.
