A better question would be "Was Zia's promotion to be a pinch-hitter opener a good decision yesterday?"

Anyhoo trollman, thread-redded.

Zia is not a batsman but sometimes he can be. He only know one to play hit or miss, but Zia is not the worst batsman.

To Inferno with his batting technique. He changed the whole scenario of the game. New Zealand never expected Bangladesh to go for a flying start with no Tamim. Yes, SJ did take a pretty effective decision.

I think I said this before somewhere,
Even if someone deliberately tries to miss hit a ball won't do it better than Jiah.

No sir, it wasn't a cheap shot. I like all my players. And technique is only one part of batting I would assume. Zia can still be an effective batsmen as a slogger, mind you. But technically, is he the worst? That is what I wanted to know.

Zia might soon have astounding success and pile up a lot of runs with his heaving. And I will appreciate him more for that. But the question will always loom, does the guy have technique? I like to be able to take a step back and wonder such things without being labelled as a hater.

You guys are laughing at Zia now, but we've had plenty of "specialist" batsmen back in the days who were no better than blind sloggers. Rokon near the end of his career, or more recently Aftab Ahmed would choose to play shots that only suit a #11. In fact, the nineties and early 2000's produced a plethora of batsmen with shoddy, highly questionable techniques. Now by that, I don't mean their techniques weren't copybook, because that's not my definition of a good technique. I mean their techniques were inherently bad and a hindrance to scoring runs consistently. An example would be Nannu - guy made tons and tons of runs in the DPL with a technique that would make Chris Martin come back from retirement and try out for the Bangladesh team as a specialist batsman. His performances in ODIs reflected his inadequate technique and lack of ability. He patched up things later on in his career though and his performances shortly before retirement back that fact.

So watching Zia bat isn't a shocker, it just reminds me of the old days.

No worries Zinat!

I feel sorry for Zia that he might not even get any more chances to play for his national team in future due to the competiveness now we have in the team.

Zia was a surprize element for the Blackcaps and it worked. I was fortunate to watch live the fifth ODI against Zimbabwe at Dhaka stadium in 2002, if I am not mistaken about the time, where Rafiq and Aftab opened the innings to surprize the opponent and thus capitalize ...

There has been some instances of bowlers turning into batsmen- jayasuriya and Ashrafix to name a few. Zia is still a glorified tailend slogger. A few well placed inswingers would have got him out for duck in the last match.

He is a pinch hitter, not a regular batsman. Thus, the poll really makes no sense. Having said that, there were a lot of batsmen during the early days of our cricket. Hey, even Aftab's technique was probably worse than Zia's.

Technique-wise he isn't that bad. He has a good forward defense and a solid if slightly skewed backfoot defense. He shouldn't be judged for his innings in the last match. He did what was required. I'm sure he can do more than swing his bat like a propeller at everything. After all, he does have a first class hundred.

No! Not at all. Haha. He gave both answers. And didn't label my actions as Zia-bashing. I couldn't have asked for more.

Every time I've seen him bat, he's swung his bat wildly at everything.

Spoke my mind. It's the temperament that makes him look so bad. He has to learn to be more patient, take singles and then when the bad delivery comes, try to hit a boundary. Just swinging away and praying for a six every time will not work.

Look at Kieron Pollard. He's probably one of the most feared hitters in the game and obviously he goes for his shots but he takes his time before he goes hard. If Zia wants to make it as an all rounder, he's going to have to try to take the Pollard route.

I have seen the likes of Rokon and Fokon bat.

Zia is technically superior to them
