Truth always hurts!

We have been playing Cricket for a long time now and have been saying 'dont worry we will be good in 5 years', this has been said a few times now and yet no real improvement. We need to stop making excuses for our players!

What exactly have we done to justify our test status? Most of our players have had PLENTY of International exposure so lack of experience cant be blamed.

We need to improve our domestic game, use variety of spin, change mentality of approaching a game, prepare various wickets and find a couple of quality pace bowlers.

With the current set-up, all we can hope for is once in a blue moon wins - To me thats just not good enough

Looks like most of us are ready to kill the messenger.

But to be fair to some of the posters here, intension of an article or criticism can be misunderstood based on the delivery and the deliverer. If this was written by one of ours, Md. Isam, we would say "nailed it!!". But since it's written by a non-Bangladeshi, we are saying, "nail that bastard".

you are correct about the domestic structure. when it comes to tests though the sad fact is BD doesn't get enough matches to get the experience in that format. when you think that they've played not even one test match this year you think wth, and when you see that they've played like 4 or 5 in the last couple of years it's another wth. they don't get enough exposure to test cricket.

of course domestic structure does need improvement and there is a lot to improve on which would no doubt hugely improve international performance.

as far as underachieving, it's being said because the progress for BD has been so slow, but there is still progress at least.

this is why we never improve, nobody has the guts to take criticism. So what if this guy is Indian and BD hater (just assumption, no proof) and has said some debate able things in the article? Can we deny a lot of what he said is a fact? Do our players (Shakib excluded, as always) have the balls to read this article (dont know if some even have the intelligence) and take it to heart and respond on the field (consistently, not once a year fluke)? If anything they should use this as a fuel instead of just complaining about others hating, like some of us fans are doing.

The last paragraph was of substance. Very well ended article.

on a TV show I watched yesterday, the host and the former cricketer RAkibul Hasan discussed about this article and both agreed that it wasn't a harsh criticism but it seemed the guy is passionate abt BD cricket.
Then the host asked RH who he thinks can be the leader of BD cricket, he said that with all due respect to Mushy he thinks Mushy is a good captain but if it's a true leader it has to be Sakib.
