What Went Wrong?

What Went Wrong?

Published Date: 24 Feb 2016 | Update : 24 Feb 2016
Looking back at the first game Bangladesh clearly couldn’t even challenge India instead they suffered a tragic loss against the mighty Indians. Well, in T20 rankings India is the number one team on the other hand Bangladesh’s position is below Afghanistan. But T20 ranking doesn’t matter much if you have some guts to play good shots, big shots and throw a challenge to your opposition. Bangladesh failed to do that.     But still what exactly went down wrong for them, last year in the world cup they were beaten by this same Indian team, year after same thing happened in the big stage. Though it was in the T20 format but still a defeat is a defeat.     Bangladesh looked confident before the tournament, they had two training camps in Khulna and Chittagong, they were pretty much pumped up with the preparation but on the main day of the tournament they failed to shine like a star, it looked like an eclipse as they couldn’t even stand up to their standard of playing. Let’s focus on the things that went ‘very’ wrong.   Mithun Replaces Tamim!   That’s a shock for the Bangladeshi cricket fans. Tamim Iqbal who had a great cricket season at PSL missed out the Asia cup due to his family emergency. Good players ‘Can’ miss out big tournaments but that doesn’t mean you will replace the player with a less experienced one who doesn’t have any international experience what so ever. Some people got shocked by looking at his name like who is he?     And the few balls that he faced clearly showed that he needs to work with both timing and shot selection; giving an inexperienced and young player a chance to replace your best player was a very bad decision. Moreover what surprised us even more he opened up the innings for Bangladesh while there were openers available to play in that spot. Sadly that was a major mistake.     Catch Miss, Match Miss   Shakib dropped Rohit Sharma when he was on 21, and later when he got out he ‘only’ made 83 runs. Well that sure cost them the match. Remember World Cup 2015 when Rohit Wasn’t given out by the umpire though clearly he was? Well, Rohit Sharma made 137 runs in that match, cost Bangladesh the match? Yes Of course. Let’s be honest if the catch was taken the scenario of the match can be different (Hard Luck!)   Mash What Were You thinking?   When Shakib Al Hasan had 1 over left and Mahmudullah got 2 overs why didn’t you use them? Both of them had an economy rate under 6 per over. You got to use them in the crucial time instead using the same option over and over again but in the wrong place. This is not how you role in the hood captain!     That’s not how you BAT! It’s T20, if you bat like you’re just playing a test match or a match with unlimited overs it will keep you in the circle of ‘Not going anywhere’. Bangladesh couldn’t pull the match off from the very beginning. The team plan was hit the ball harder after it gets old but seems like the batsmen just defended the ball from hitting themselves. Not a good approach in T20, if this thing keeps continuing then it’s a ‘Very’ bad news for Bangladesh team.     Can you smell what the Indians were cooking?   While we were all busy with our fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman, India were cooking the recipe to get along with him. And in the match we got to see what they were actually cooking. 4 over 40 runs and no wickets; this is the bowling figure of Mustafiz. One bad match, may be but when you put all the spot light on one player and ignore the rest of the outcomes this is what happens!     Well, this is it. Bangladesh did make a lot of mistakes in the first match, but its high time they should play as an aggressive team but before doing so they need to have the right combination of bowlers and batsmen and also they need to use the bowlers in the right place at the right time. Suggestions for the batsmen will be, its T20I play it more like it should be played.
