Default Smartness and BD cricketers

The reason why we often find ourselves in tough position is because of our lack of smartness.
Today I was delighted to see Liton's smart WKeeping, Mustaz cutter to dismiss Amla.
But our unsmart captain's decision to bowl first has totally put us on backfoot from day 1!

I really wonder how many of our players are actually smart?
Among the dumbest we have Mushfiq, Taskin, Imrul ( and I don't even want to mention Ashraful's Shahadat's era) the rest are pretty average.
Among the smartest we have MAsh, Sakib,Mustafizur,Ryad ( he saved us many times under pressure), Tamim (sometimes) , Nasir is smart but technically limited

Overall our players are not that street smart which is holding us back.
Just look at Dhoni and Kohli, or even Mccullum who did so well as a captain.
I hope our next generation players will be smarter.

সাইমন ভাই, মুশীকে গাধা বললে কম বলা হবে! ও গাধা না, ও একটা বলদ! আসলে গাধা-বলদ!!

তবে, মনুষ হিসাবে সে বেশ ভাল।

If someone made a hundred against Srilanaka in Srilanka at the age of 16, he/she must have been smart.

Fixrafool is there. Captain would undoubtedly be the classy and totally dependable Mushfiqur Rahim.

Stellar lineup. This team would consistently snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Tbf, they'd never get close to winning unless playing against Uganda U12s, and that too, on a rank turner at home.

He was a above average captain. He was not dumb as a captain, its more after he retired, people doesn't approve his behavior as a BCB executive.

Yeah he was pretty shrewd and aggressive compared to the likes of Akram, Aminul, Nannu. Wont put him in the dumb category. Pilot was also a crafty guy, read the game well.

Mushfiq despite being a better cricketer in all aspects isnt as sharp as many of these guys in the past.

Yes Pilot is a very intelligent person and a tactician of the game as well as he was very good wicket keeper. His problem (while he was was the captain) was elsewhere... he was young and had disciplinary problem like Tamim/Sakib has/had.

But is he dumb? No way... completely opposite of that.
