Default Mushfiq's captaincy

Mushfiq has not excelled as a captain. Shakib used to make mistakes, but at least used his head. Mushfiq cannot think outside the box. Hell, he does not even know the box! I don't think he has ever read Mike Brearley's The Art of Captaincy, which should be the required reading for all skippers.

Richie Benaud's said, "Captaincy is 90% luck, only 10% skill - but don't try it without the 10%." Mushfiqur is lacking in these 10%, I think. He is a great chirper behind the stamps, though!

Unfortunately he has to continue the role because there is no one else to take it. Let Shakib focus on his batting and bowling.

He seems to be a good motivator and people person. He just needs to figure out the tactical bit of the game better.

I wish he does, but I don't know whether he has the knack. His captaincy has not improved one bit since he started.

If Ash is captain, he'll lose the ability to even score 20+ runs.

I just clearly see that he is big candidate of LBW or getting bowled...I would not have complained if he was in good form but offform batsmen clearly will get out if he can not connect or see the ball properly playing this type of shot before getting set...and there is no time to get set in t20

SS bhai, tension koiren na, he's probably just flicking one that's pitched up down the legside/off his pads, not a very risky shot.

Don't worry, in the real game he'll get bowled trying to cut one that pitches on off and spins back into the stumps.

I remeber whem Ash was the captain he opened the bowling in the A team tour in West Indies and ended up bowling more overs than others!

Mushy should be guided by Pybus. Coach should be in charge of the gameplan, not the captain. Captain should just execute, and if he is making mistake, the coach must act right away to send him messages during the game. Otherwise the coach might as well just stay in the hotel and watch the game on TV or watch a movie instead.

i think atm mushy is a good choice for captain for BD, the other option would be riyad. shakib is better focusing on his game rather than captaincy, and we need his A game so that's important. tamim just doesn't seem like a captain. mash is always injured and no longer consistently at his best, razzak isn't as consistently at his best either and hasn't got a fixed spot in the team with sunny breaking through over the last 12 months. everyone else is either to inconsistent, not captain material or to inexperienced.

but you do wonder where mushy's game would be right now had he not taken on captaincy, originally i thought it helped his game, got him more focused, more gritty and determined but he's lost form and is struggling now.

I remember Law was doing this during Asia Cup. He was regularly sending Anamul or others at the bench as messengers during intervals...

mushy is sometimes clueless as a captain, in the afg match where all the spinners bowled well he didn't give a single ball to mullah rather he bowled full quota of mash and shafiul, mash and shafi went for 9 a over each, if mullah was given 2-3 overs of mash and shafi at least 10 runs would have been saved(all the spinners went for 4 or less)..against afg this didn't hurt us but against kiwi or pak 10 runs will be the difference maker

Or may be he was focusing on the KEY word here which is PRACTICE ?
if he was indeed then fine but yeah if he was total clueless about it thats not acceptable.

Bhai.. I watched the game and this is what I saw...

Over 4 - 21/1 Bowled by Razzaq 2 runs given (gets a wicket)
Over 5 - 29/1 Bowled by Mashrafe 8 runs given
Over 6 - 34/1 Bowled by Razzaq 5 runs given
In comes Shafiul
Over 7 - 45/1 Bowled by Shafiul 11 runs given
I think that was the starting point for McCullum going wild. I mean everyone knows how good he is against pace.

Over 15 123/2 Bowled my Mashrafe 10 runs given but gets a wicket
Over 16 128/2 Bowled by Shakib 5 runs given
In comes Shafiul
Over 17 143/2 Bowled by Shafiul 15 runs given.
... Rest is history.

Just my observation.

What will he do if Sunny gives short pitch ball, Shakib gives juicy full tosses, Shafiul gives half length ball one after another ? All of them were asking for trouble and they all got what they deserved !

It's easy to say we should've batted first now that we have lost. Mushy did the right thing since it was an overcast condition and we are better at chasing. Alas our bowling had gone to dogs today.
