I watched the Bangladesh innings for a couple of hours; was hoping for an innings of substance from Mominul and a few attractive boundaries from Soumya (at least) but it was not to be. Liton's innings was very assured -- till the moment he got out.

I can, however, understand why people don't feel like tuning in. Our bowling has been abysmal of late, overly reliant on superlative performances by one or two individuals, while our batting is missing our two most reliable - and exciting - batsmen. The script sort of writes itself. There isn't even a 'promising' debutant to scrutinize, or at least add a surprise element.

Nope. Have watched couple of overs here and there but that's it. No point in wasting time by watching such mediocre batting and bowling display.

Not watching anymore of Rahim's captaincy for me. I had enough!

Haven't watched a single ball yet. Knew what's going to be happened even before the series started and didn't have the stomach to witness it.

Havent seen a single delivery in either test. And I plan to keep it that way. In fact I didn’t know 2nd test already started until I just came to BC now.

Reason: busy with work. Plus there are many fun things to do in life than watch these chagols play.

I am so jealous of you. There is nothing better than being single and working.

Not one ball. Not even following the scorecard much either. Just the scores here and there...

Will be watching the ODI series for sure since it's Bangladesh best format. My favourite format too.

Watched few overs yesterday morning. Thank God this pointless Test series is over. Hope Mash-Shak will be able to turn things around before the ODI series.

I watched like 10 minutes in total.
But I was following in ESPN Cricinfo.

Either way, we all know what happened.

Send Mushfiqur back to Bangladesh. ODI team's morale will be affected negatively with his presence after this test debacle.

I watched possibly 2-3 hours.. there wasn’t much to watch. bD captain declared the intention after winning the toas in both matches.
