Not the only ones

Bangladesh has their own senior player problem: Habibul Bashar. I've been wanting to say this for a while, but Bashar truly looks out of his league. I realize the man has done yeoman service for Bangla cricket, but the way he is batting (and this general air of slightly over-the-top diffidence) suggests that not only is this perception accurate, it is one shared by the man at the center of it all (I'm writing this as he fumbles around against South Africa but its an observation prompted by watching him bat in this Cup in general). Bashar all too frequently lacks timing, fails to get into line, is a poor runner between the wickets, and quite simply, looks like a man who would do best to hand over things to a young man who can take Bangladesh cricket on to the next level. Good job Habibul, let this World Cup be your swansong, and make way.

BD is already dealing with a coaching problem.. now they will have a captaincy problem- not unlike their subcontinental neighbors eh ?

Cheers and welcome back :)
