Aggro my lad, thats the key

I normally find comments by, er, commentators, asking for changes in field placings quite irritating. But I have to agree with Ian Smith's carrying on a bit about Bashar's failure to bring in a slip for Kallis. If there is one way to get Kallis early (actually, any batsman) it is to put some offensive pressure on him early enough outside the offstump. Slightly defensive moves like this are going to haunt Bangladesh for a while - the sooner they get over the better it will be for their cricket. If they want to know what happens to teams that don't break out of reflexive defensiveness, they only need to look next-door to see the fate that awaits them (no, I don't mean the Bollywood fawning or the multi-million commercial opportunities).
