Series/Tournaments: Asia Cup

Bangladesh's loss to Sri Lanka in their last Asia Cup game was their seventh consecutive ODI defeat. Given their impressive form in the home series against New Zealand, this slump is a drastic downturn in form. Worryingly for Bangladesh there has been a massive drop in confidence among the players.

The last time they suffered this long a losing streak was between March and August 2011, beginning from their last World Cup game. After being bowled out for 78 against South Africa, Bangladesh were crushed 0-3 by Australia and then Zimbabwe took a 3-0 lead in a five-match series. This time they lost 3-0 to Sri Lanka and were blanked in all four Asia Cup matches.

Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim did not consider this the worst phase of his career. Instead, he lauded his team for bouncing back from the defeat against Afghanistan, even though they lost the following games narrowly to Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

"As per the results, we are not doing well and not playing up to our strength," Mushfiqur said. "We have played well in the [last] two matches. Hats off to boys for the way we have come back after the debacle against Afghanistan. There were ifs and buts. It is not an excuse but we have put on an improved show. As a team we have more capability. In the series against Sri Lanka, we could have won the first match. We have been unlucky in some aspects."

Between the end of the last slump to the start of this one, Bangladesh had developed faster in one-day cricket than in Tests and Twenty20s. Mushfiqur was made captain two games into this period, and won 10 out of 24 matches. His highlights included a place in the 2012 Asia Cup final, bilateral series wins over West Indies and New Zealand, and a 1-1 draw in Sri Lanka.

Bangladesh have also suffered crippling injuries in the last 17 days. Already without Tamim Iqbal, they used 17 players in seven ODIs, and had Shakib Al Hasan for just four games due to a suspension. Nasir Hossain and Shamsur Rahman losing form did not help, neither did the bowlers and fielders struggling.

Nasir and Tamim were Bangladesh's top batsmen during their successful period. Over that time, the average of bowlers who had taken more than 20 wickets was between 24 and 30. During this slump, only Arafat Sunny averages less than 35 for his six wickets.

During the previous poor run too, Tamim batted at an average of 22.14, which affected the team's balance at the top of the order. Shamsur's batting form has also dipped and despite Anamul Haque batting well, it has still not worked for Bangladesh.

Their biggest difficulty has been coordinating the three disciplines. When Bangladesh bowled well, their batsmen failed. Similarly, when the batsmen scored Bangladesh's highest ODI total, against Pakistan in the Asia Cup, the bowlers were poor.

After Bangladesh had reduced Sri Lanka to 8 for 3 in this game, there was hope the streak would be broken with an efficient bowling performance. But Sri Lanka put together partnerships and then Al-Amin dropped a simple catch after five wickets were down. It took away the momentum once again, and Sri Lanka walked away with a win. This has been Bangladesh's story over the last 17 days. They have put themselves in some winning positions but given it away.

Mushfiqur said after the Sri Lanka game that one win would fix everything. If it comes against Afghanistan in the opening game of the World T20, it will keep Bangladesh in the tournament till the end of March. For the short-term that would be appeasing, but it will be nothing compared to long-term progress.

@Abedin11, you have to also give credit to the opponent players to pull of these games as well. It is not like test that BAN could not enforce a win and settled for a draw. They opponent worked for the runs. All I am saying is BAN need to know where our strength and weakness is and stop bragging about we can beat any team. For example, Sri Lanka got ODI status in 1982. In next 15 years, they have 62 ODI wins of which against AUS (11), INDIA(13), PAK(15), SA(4), WI(7) and won the World cup in the 14th year. The example and role model is there in front of us. Look how they evolved and how their players have always been nice, no bragging before tournaments or away series.

Posted by Nasim_Ahmed on (March 8, 2014, 5:36 GMT)

One/two wins won't fix everything as they're saying. Actually it has been the opposite all along. Remember the Shakib-Siddons era and how that ended? One/two loses shouldn't have torn everything apart then because Bangladesh was on the right path. Remember those wise former players on the TV talk-shows? Remember Ashraful tragedy? Some good-willing fans are suggesting Jargensen being removed, Mushy being replaced as a captain, but I'm asking why they are there at the first place? BCB just wanted a sitting on the fence kind of coach, which Stuart Law or Richard Pybass couldn't possibly be so they've got one in Jargensen. Mushy was the forced captain as BCB desperately removed Shakib, the captain with a vision. Once again the team is at the verge of destruction and those wise former players, now enjoying more power, along with the political board are sitting happily and doing whatever they're doing...

Posted by   on (March 8, 2014, 2:59 GMT)

Abedin is correct when he says that BD was on the verge of winning many a times. So the overall statistics is not a true reflection of the team's actual ability. But then again this also sounds like making excuses for a team that just chokes in the final phase. BD is now the biggest choker of all. True strength means how strongly you finish the game. That's the true test of character. Herein lies BD's actual weakness. Part of it also a lack of will and determination to win. The body language is pathetic. When BD had Afghanistan cornered, Mushy just didn't go for the jugular. He was like Dhoni, timid and defensive. When your opponent is wilting, you pass him enough rope to hang himself with. Mushy decided to bail them out, instead. The players were smiling away and moving about as if they had already won. Boy! did they get the surprise of their lives from the lion-hearted Afghans. The Afghans showed how the game should be played. No quarters given; none asked for!

Mushfiq should use more mominul as a bowling alrounder. Mominul can be next Jadeja. He has more control than Razzak. Players like Razzak and Mahmudullah had given lots of opportunities but still a below average performance/ Mushfiq was always favoring them. In t20 format BD's bowling is in a haphazard position. Gazi was never a t20 bowler. Mashrafee can do little in t20 format. Razzak is off form and very casual bowler in this particular format. Selectors should go for special performer like Arafat in this particular format. Even Nasir and Mominul can have better control as a bowler. Shakib was the main armory in BD's bowling department. Forhad Reza might be okay as per his experience in domestic T20. BCB please bring a quality spin coach from Sub continent before the tournament. Coach should focus more on bowling and fielding .

Bangladesh need to change batting line up and should drop some crazy cricketer who throw their wicket at crucial time Ndz give to chance taskin ahmed as a impressive bowler

Posted by rsmehdihasan on (March 7, 2014, 17:29 GMT)

It is a good sign that BD is fighting in every match. But problem is you have to come out from your down to spirited win. Every team does/ Every brave captain does . Make some results in any way. What i see Mushfiq was defensive in his captaincy in this matches. He was more active and inspiring while he was with his gloves. i see he was down and his body language was defensive as well. Each match specially when BD was bowling, some point of time they create pressure then the pressure released. After some point of time he become defensive and just go with usual bowlers. A good attacking captain is always thinking and going for wickets and tries all his resources. Last match for some unknown reason he did not use mominul but he used Zia. Match against pakistan he did not use Zia . So when taking wicket is so important then why not try carefully with all of your resources, create pressure with close fielders, changing bowlers frequently so batsman did not get opportunity to settle.

Posted by Abedin11 on (March 7, 2014, 17:23 GMT)

@Al Dave, first thing,yes you are right that statistics need to improve But I want to say that Bangladeshis deserved to win more than they have done, it is due to mental strength or not to finish off the game. if you see against afganistan , Pakistan and srilanka, Bangladesh was on top, they could not just finish off the game. they need couple of wins under their belt. And one thing, New Zealand beat West indies in the recent series, it does not mean that New Zealand are better than West Indies. It was because of poor cricket from West Indies which led to New Zealand's victory, and also west indies did not have a strong side because of injuries. It is just the mental strength of the west indies and Bangladeshi players require and they need to believe themselves that they can win.

BCB should consider to make three changes. First change to let go head coach Shane Jurgensen. BD is playing hard but not playing smart. Losing more than few close games mean a team doesn't have a good game plan or a good strategy. And it should be head coaches responsibility. Second change should be replace chief select with current selector Bashar who has good understanding about players and games since he retired recently. Last but not least change should be replace captain Mushi with someone else. Mushi's game management style is very poor, picking wrong squad, asking wrong bowlers to bowl at the wrong time, incorrect batting order are evident in past and recent games. BD has right combination of players but without making changes, they will not be successful in future.

is bangladesh the biggest victim of umpire errors in the history of the game of cricket.i have been watching cricket for the last 30 years,all formats and a load of different teams,but never seen decisions continuesly go against one team.i know umpires are only humans.but to see them making simple errors against bangladesh contiuesly,as a cricket fan it breaks morale,something has to be done about this.a long suffering tigers fan!

Posted by SaraJahanSeAchha on (March 7, 2014, 14:14 GMT)

@Cpt.Meanster, and how do you consider NZ, ENG in Tier-1, NZ recently lost 2-0 to Bangladesh in Bangladesh which are rated last. India could have won 2-0 in NZ with some basic adjustments and better team selection decisions. SA, ENG and NZ are only good in their own backyard. I can see only AUS that too only recent series improving outside Aus. THey got thrashed 4-0 by India as well. If you are a good side, you have to perform in ALL conditions right now no country can claim that. Aus did for a few years during McGrath, Warne time frame. Outside India probably India has done best baring last 2 tours of Aus and England when big 4 (Sachin, Dravid, Laxman, Sehwag) were in fading part of career.

Posted by   on (March 7, 2014, 14:07 GMT)

Look since 1986 to 2014, Bangladesh has won only 5 matches outside Bangladesh in an away series (not a tournament) against AUS, IND, PAK, SL, NZ, SA, ENG, WI, the top 8. Out of this 3 were against WI B Team when the main team went in strike and 1 against SL which was a rain shortened game where Sl scored 302, Bangladesh chased 184 in 28 overs losing 7wkts, so this is also not a great win. The only great win for BAN is against ENG in 2010. This statistic needs to be improved. Bangladesh could not win 1 match against NZ outside Bangladesh ever and Bangladeshi fan continuosly claim they are better than NZ....BAN players seems to think so too..

Posted by trollwars on (March 7, 2014, 13:46 GMT)

Bangladesh has won only 80 out of the 283 ODIs it ha splayed, giving it a win/loss percentage of just 0.4. So there is only a 40 % probability that Bangladesh will win a ODI. Also most of these wins are against weaker oppositions. Not more than 20 of these 80 victories have come against India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, NZ, England, Australia, WI and South Africa. They need to improve these odds!

Posted by Abedin11 on (March 7, 2014, 9:31 GMT)

To green baggy. I don't know where you are from, but your comments are totally disrespectful. I don't think you know how to respect a country and you are commenting about bangladesh. I have never seen any players from Bangladesh not respecting teams in the middle. Yes Bangladesh have not won any match but they Should have won the last 2.

Posted by Nasim_Ahmed on (March 7, 2014, 8:03 GMT)

If such basic errors are made again and again then one must ask- what does the coach and players do in the training sessions? If the pre-match plans always fail one must question the homework and intelligence behind those plans. If young players always regress after promising starts of career and talents don't flourish despite considerable experience one must address the issues in the very handling of a player and the selection process. These simple questions point to the management by and large, which, in turn, pours cold water on the future of Bangladesh cricket.

Posted by Nasim_Ahmed on (March 7, 2014, 8:02 GMT)

"This has been Bangladesh's story over the last 17 days. They have put themselves in some winning positions but given it away."- says it all. This is the more agonizing difference from previous slumps too. If we cut the squabbles, the clear reason behind that is - (1) Not keeping up the run rates in the middle overs while batting despite good starts, and (2) Not putting together the pressure on opposition while bowling despite good starts.

Posted by AbdulMohamad731 on (March 7, 2014, 6:56 GMT)

Cant believe how Jurgensen, Mcinnes were selected.

Poor coaching is the reason for continuous losses. Jurgensen, Mcinnes must be removed immediately if any progress is to be made.

Posted by Tinybaba on (March 7, 2014, 6:44 GMT)

Mushi , sorry mate SL is far too good for your half baked team. Dont forget SL were playing without , Dilshan , Herath , Kulasekara and Malinga hence you were beaten by a weakened SL team .

When you were beaten by Afgans you cried but see what will happen to you in the T20. If you wing one match , I would be surprised.

Posted by British_North_America on (March 7, 2014, 6:43 GMT)

We need nothing.Just change the Captain with Shakib.Mushfiq does not have any captain skill.

Posted by green_baggy on (March 7, 2014, 6:30 GMT)

Bangladesh should be demoted to tire 2. They should try to first beat teams like Afghanistan before even thinking of playing against the superior teams.They are given far too many chances. Players are overrated. Hence lack discipline. Do not know how to respect the opponent team when in the middle. All these are reasons behind them not having the 10% luck that need to win a match.

Posted by Cpt.Meanster on (March 7, 2014, 6:21 GMT)

@Wacco: I bet you are a SL or PAK supporter right ? Cause it has become a latest trend for fans from those two nations to attack Indian cricket team for fun. Don't forget that both PAK and SL are equally hopeless teams in test cricket outside of Asia. In fact, it was a long time since PAK and SL won anything of substance outside of Asia when it comes to test cricket. I am not saying India are any better. It's just that PAK and SL are equally worst. So I would group PAK, SL, IND, WI, BAN, AFG and IRE in Group 2; SA, AUS, ENG, and NZ will be group 1. How's that for a 2 tier system !!

Posted by   on (March 7, 2014, 5:44 GMT)

I'm really sad bcz Bangladesh playing international cricket since 1986 but they didn't improve their game yet. They should change their behaviours and spirits in order to consistent in the game

Posted by Wacco on (March 7, 2014, 5:27 GMT)

@vallavarayar, I agree with you there should be a two-tier system with WI, India, BD, Afgans, Ireland sould be clubbed together in Tier 2. That should take into account last 2 years of test match performances.

Posted by thamindujayaweera on (March 7, 2014, 4:45 GMT)

may be its time to teach bangladesh players to how to behave, specially to Anamul haque. against the pakisthan match that man played like he have a rage with someone

Posted by vallavarayar on (March 7, 2014, 4:29 GMT)

ICC should really implement a two tier test structure and relegate teams ranked 7 to 10 to the 2nd tier. And throw in Afghanistan and Ireland into the 2nd tier as well. That would give the undeserved test playing nations a push they really need.

Posted by   on (March 7, 2014, 3:46 GMT)

Every problem has a solution. I know these blokes have tested our patience again and again. I think an excellent coach can solve a lot of these issues. I feel BD cricket's corporate management sucks big time. There is also no exemplary role model to follow. Educating, training, and improving the players' mental strengths through counseling can make a lot of difference. But I don't think in current form, there is absolutely no infrastructure for these..and even if there are some, they are clearly not working. Its obviously the duty of the top management to make changes. However, if the top management is not inspired or is backed by politics, then I don't think we will encounter any improvements. As ardent cricket fans we can pinpoint the problems but sometimes the structure of these problems is so complex, we just simply cannot do anything about them. BD players certainly have the talent and capability. What lacks is intelligence, leadership, and strong mental aptitude.

Posted by   on (March 7, 2014, 3:40 GMT)

Mushfiq's captaincy was pathetically listless in this game. He has to attack more...when ziaur was bowling so well..why on earth he did not keep a slip? And what was he saving Sakib for? to bowl at the end? He set the field in such a way batsmen are scoring easy singles everywhere....He has to realize the only way he could have won this low-scoring game was by taking wickets and that could have only happened if he created more pressure on the batsmen! Disappointing!!!! His defensive mentality is one the overarching reasons we are not winning any games of late...But I don't see any other player leading the side even after so many issues

Posted by Lakpj on (March 7, 2014, 3:38 GMT)

Bangladesh really needs to find couple of decent fast bowlers and probably a leg spinner. Al-Amin looks good but Rubel is just a waste. Come the 2015 WC they need an all-rounder who can bowl some medium pace, so Ziaur should be given more chances. Gazi and Shakib seems good so they need leggie to back them up. Playing 2-3 left arm spinners against good opposition will not work no matter how good they are and finally their batsmen need to be more reliable.

Posted by Big_Brother_of_Cricket on (March 7, 2014, 2:57 GMT)

One of the saddest things about Bangladesh cricket is the attitude of the young BD players. Some of them are so arrogant and not-so-genuine in the field. As an example, see how Anamul behaves behind the stumps. He always screams for most of the appeals and exhibits over-joyous or rather exaggerated appearance when a wicket falls. His screaming appealing for notouts is tragic to be seen on TV. Furthermore, his appealing is not genuine and for the sake of getting the decision favoured to their team. The two dismissal (caught behinds) of Sohaib Maqsood and Chathurang de Silva are examples for that. BD players should not be stage actors in the field for their fans. Fans need good performances and wins not ridiculous acts. They better get their on-field qualities right or make more Virat Kohlis.

Bangladesh Is Lacking In Everything. Batting Bowling And Fielding, They Have To Become Mentally Strong. They Do Lots Of Talking And Excuses Given, But No Results.Sorry To Say They Are A Highly Over Rated Team.Do Not Have Real Passion For The Game Like Afghanistan.

Posted by KingTarik on (March 7, 2014, 1:13 GMT)

Bangladesh will consistently have these types of issues in the future if the Bangladesh think tank including the captain, coaches, selectors, and players themselves don't fix their core problems. 1) Don't be over confident after winning a match or even a series. 2) Bangladesh also need to have that killer instinct and be aggressive mentally. They need to dominate an entire match and not just dominating in phases. If they are in a position to win a game and they have to win that game no matter what. A prime example was they should have beaten SL in that match when SL were 67/8 . 3) Captain Mushfiq needs to be aggressive in his approach and changes in bowling/fielding. In a tough match when the team is in a bad situation, a captain's right choices is a difference between win/ loss.Learn from Angelo Mathews.His captaincy have been very aggressive during tough situations. 4) Selectors need to stick with a core group of players and stop chopping and changing in every matc

Posted by sheikhaq on (March 7, 2014, 1:06 GMT)

BD is an excellent team with lots of potential but still work in progress. they lack in final finishing mainly because yet they have to learn "mental game " as it changes from physical one..mental strength is the difference btw a "champion" and a simple winner. rest of the factors like bowling, fielding, batting are otherwise basic common denominators and needed for winning but can not make you a "champion"

Posted by   on (March 7, 2014, 0:13 GMT)

BND team is a joke ...they should not play with the big boys..i am sure club tams will beat them easily...worst team on planet..

Posted by JanooGerman on (March 6, 2014, 23:19 GMT)

It is not mental toughness which is keeping Bangladesh cricket team at the bottom of chart, in fact it is the MINDSET. If one win could have changed the fortunes, then Bangladesh started the series against Sri Lanka with few wins against New Zealand and West Indies. Then why slumped?

From the top brass of BCB, to the selectors, and to the players, everyone is trying to find excuses. In fact during the most recent drama of big three, BCB chairman was busy finalizing back door deals despite of the fact that Bangladesh is the second largest nation (behind India) when it comes to cricket followers. Indian companies investing in cricket based on the market demands in India and Bangladesh. This is why Sahara sponsored Bangladesh cricket team.

I never witnessed aggressive Bangladeshi cricket team in the field. In fact the feeling I get after watching any game involving Bangladesh, the team only practices before and after match excuses.

Efforts without results is just a waste of time.

Posted by helloDolly on (March 6, 2014, 22:05 GMT)

BD needs to 'have a good look at the team and decide whether to play or not;BD do not have a team the captain is a mess .

Posted by   on (March 6, 2014, 22:01 GMT)

Well maybe its time to call them Bangladesh Cricket team rather than "Tigers".

Posted by bouncer709 on (March 6, 2014, 20:41 GMT)

I think BD team deserve no comments, but i witnessed little improvement from last year, last year their players were crying, this year only crowed crying, when they r loosing we feel sad for them but when they show a little performance their fans becomes so brash and arrogant. then they need Kohli, Afridi, Mathew, or Shenwari to bring their mind on earth... and thinking about T20 WC, I just trying to imagine how it will be a WC without the host country... it will be boring.

Posted by BigINDFan on (March 6, 2014, 20:26 GMT)

The problem that BD faces is the same that IND faces - high quality strike bowlers. Aus is on top of the world now becoz of their bowling, even though their batting is fragile sometimes. SA and Aus have the best bowling attack closely followed by Pak. Ind, BD and WI are the worst when it comes to bowling attack. You simply cannot win matches with bad bowlers who give away easy runs and do not close the lid when on top. Ind got thoroughly beaten in SA but in NZ they gave it away too easily due to their hapless bowling. So both teams need good quality fast bowlers who can open the bowling and more important close the innings by bowling at death. If Mushfiqur continued with fast bowlers in the last 10 overs Afridi would have given more chances. Kohli did the same mistake. So BD hire a proper bowling coach and get the bowlers to be mentally tough you will do fine!

Posted by hasib9 on (March 6, 2014, 20:19 GMT)

Let me point out some things Isam missed: BD doesn't have good fast bowlers. They relied on Razzak to give them break throughs. Razzak's poor form cost them most of these matches. Mushfiq also doesn't know how to properly use Zia and Mominul, both great part time bowlers. Al-Amin is their best choice as a fast bowler but they picked Rubel and Shafiul morer frequently. Shafiul would have been the better choice on a bowling friendly wicket, but I would pick Rubel on a batting friendly wicket, such as the one against Pakistan. Mortaza is ok for ODIs but should not be playing T20s, at all. I blame Mortaza for the loss in T20 and Mushfiq for the ODIs. Hopefully they learn to pick the best team and use their bowlers better.. cannot believe Arafat Sunny and Mominul are not part of the World Cup T20

Posted by i_amVIVA on (March 6, 2014, 19:48 GMT)

There's nothing called LUCK. SL don't say they're lucky from 78/8 or 8/3 games.

The REAL PROBLEMS of BD team, as Qazi Hassan pointedly mentioned in another posting today, are as follows:

"It has no problem with talent. The problem is mental toughness, as evident from their body language. When they are losing, they just give up half-way the game. When they are winning, they start taking it easy and lose won matches.

It was obvious in this tournament that BD team was unable to take the pressure of playing in front of a massive home crowd expecting a whole lot from them.

BD Cricket Board needs to appoint MENTORS / COUNCILLORS / PSYCHOLOGISTS to work on BD players mental toughness. I have seen SL and Pak players suffer from this when they first started cricket."

Well said above, and, being a Bangladeshi in the first place, I can see the rationale above, agree 100% with the above, and the relevant solution should provide the Tigers necessary ammo to rise to the next level.

Posted by   on (March 6, 2014, 19:35 GMT)

The thing is, we do not need to be blind supporters; praising our team all the time and making quixotic expectations and demands. Yes, there should be censures and critical analysis when the team performs so poorly, but there is no need to desert the team completely. I believe the Tigers still have a lot of fight and panache to warrant our unequivocal support.

Posted by   on (March 6, 2014, 19:30 GMT)

Let's be realistic, BD should be among the associates and not among the top cricketing nations. You are talking about 17 days, this has been there story for 17 years.

Posted by   on (March 6, 2014, 19:29 GMT)

We need these guys back to playing how they were last year. Something is wrong but dont know what!

Posted by Warm_Coffee on (March 6, 2014, 19:17 GMT)

We are a poor team simple as that. Personally, this is the final time I'll be following Bangladesh Cricket as I simply had enough of these losses after losses. Even our under-19 and Women's team can play much much better Cricket than what our men team can which is very embarrassing to say the least. Goodbye.

Posted by   on (March 6, 2014, 18:54 GMT)

I sincerely believe that BD is just one win away to get into the winning form back again. The sooner it happens, the better. All the best Tigers, we are always proud of you.
