Rather disappointing that Bangladesh are approaching test matches with a game plan that ensures they wont win. Playing 3 bowlers against India is ridiculous.

^ Yes, but which bowlers would threaten to make an impact? Rubel? Shahadat? Al Amin? Much as I cringe, I can understand the mindset. Bangladesh simply aren't good enough from a bowling standpoint. Until that happens, I'm okay with us just trying to bat out draws and climb as close to the WI and get into the top 8.

I think they should prepare better pitches....... It's not fun watching meaningless run-fests

^Pitch has just started turning...at least for the leggie Jubair if not the SLAs.

Couple of decent googlies to get rid of Kohli and Saha!

Once Taskin, Mustafizur, and Jubair lead the Test attack in a couple of years...we're going to be pretty decent. Batting is already pretty strong.

Wretched comments from captain Mushfiq that the bowlers' lack of discipline makes his idiotic captaincy look "foolish". Actually its his field settings which make the bowlers look bad. Ashwin got at least 3 of his 5 wickets caught at leg slip. Mushy never employs a leg slip or any third close catcher for his spinners. The time has come for him to lose both the captaincy and the WK gloves. Fortunately, Litton Das had a good batting debut to increase the likelyhood of that fumbling joker losing the WK spot. He may lost his captaincy even before the SA series in a few weeks.

ODI series starts in a few hours. There are reserve days for the ODIs so hopefully we get completed matches. Even a single win out of 6 games vs IND and SA should be enough to seal our spot for the champions trophy.

Litton Das looked pretty good on debut........
Mushfiqur Rahim has always been criticized for his poor captaincy and defensive approach..........
Both Tamim and Soumya Sarkar were batting well today but threw away their wickets at crucial moments.........
Interestingly, the selectors have picked four seamers...............
