Default Confidence booster series

Please BCB organise a series against Malaysia and PNG for us to gain some confidence (dare I say!). It feels like no matter what score to chase or even defend, we have to make sure we lose - we just forgot how to win!

There is no chance in winning this year with the couple of more series we got (against WI and Zim - they will both be mighty strong for us), yet the WC is knocking at the door in about 7 months time.

I have ran out of any other ideas - changed batting coach, got a new bowling coach, introduced debutants, got India to bring the third string team, sent 'almost' the national team to play against WI third string team, even got Afghanistan and HK to play against us

What else is there to do? Changing captain is not an option - there is no one else to lead us.

I think this series is providing what is needed ... a real time evaluation of our national players by the new coach. Sometimes its better to go at the bottom before moving up. I hope the coach would realize that unless he make some drastic changes, its not going to chnage.... and that means (hopefully) a) new captain or current capatin with drastically reduced power; b) nobody should feel secured when they throw away their wickets; c) repeated same mistake and you are out; d) National team is not the place to recover from off-form; d) Fail to follow already assigned team strategy, you are out.

These are just some of the examples. Players who contunie to perform and new players who learn and grow should be the one who should be in the team.

PNG actually have ODI status till 2018 and it will not be a bad idea to play a series against them. Well at the moment BD team has got into a mindset which is very negative. Playing and winning some games (And BD should not mind if they lose some too) will bring a change in the mindset.

I think BD fans after the team got Test Status started thinking they are a class apart from the Associate teams and they should only play the bigger teams. That has resulted in giving up too soon attitude. Like they aspire to play the bigger teams they should also fulfill the aspirations of lesser teams. It should be a good mix of both and lot of cricket should be played by them which would give them chances to give exposure to many players and come out with the best XI in the major tournaments.

So presently BD should look to invite or visit the top 6 ODI status Associates(Ire, Afg, Scot, UAE, HK & PNG) in the period they have no games against full members

This has been an excellent confidence booster series so far ... for these Indian players on the brink.

No thanks, I'd rather not confirm the fears of BD actually losing to PNG, Nepal etc etc.

This is the era of the young bloods. Bring in all the talented young players and put them on the team. Throw out junks like Nasir, Riyad, Razzak and Mash (maybe, but he's too injured)...

No matter who we play we will lose. I don't think it is a matter of skills anymore but more a mental disintegration. We need a new captain and a fresh set of players to come out of this horrible slump.
At least 5-6 changes are necessary. Bring in Shamsur, Imrul or any other domestic Bradman who are not mentally down and could play with a focused mind.

I agree it's a mental thing. The players who deserve a spot in the ODI team are mushy, shakib anamul, rubel and mash. taskin should get a decent run now and the other spots we need to figure out by playing fringe players and prospects. I'd give shamsur more chances for now and shuvagata also, maybe taijul for a spin spot and workout the team from there.

Fazal summed it up nicely.

Actually this could be a good money making opportunity for us. If we start playing against associates all of them will end up getting ODI status. Isn't there a rule if you beat a test playing nation twice you get ODI status? We can make them pay us hefty amount and pretend like we lost intentionally...

We are doing that anyway, no? Are we losing for real?
