Well shakieb you have a making of a good team but give it a another 4 or 5 years and you can start to beat big boys like England, Aus , India and perhaps Netherlands!

I think we should move on. we should not drop catches when catch already has dropped!!!. When something is past it is better not to think about that at all , even if a player drop a easy catch in the field , they should forget that. We need to look forward, we defeated West indies or Nz, it does not matter, matter is what we should do now! i will request our commentators as well not to showcase failure of BD fielders again and again then from spectator to player everyone will think about that and lapse of concentration will happen again and again .

Mr siddhartha87, we need to look at ourselves before we point fingers at Bdesh. India is currently playing one of its worst cricket. We still havent won a series in Australia or South Africa which is a horrible stat for a so called "superpower" in world cricket and also a former world no 1. None of our batsman click anywhere where the ball seams a little but we still keep singing praises and treat them like demi gods!.. is that fair. Well every country has a right to treat its players the way they want.

this is pathetic.All Bangladeshi players do is talking about their twin triumph against New Zeland and the last Asia cup. Grow up! Asia cup is days away now. If you really think you got what it takes to lift the cup then win it this time.Enough living in the past

It is natural that other teams in Asia are jealous about Bangladesh...otherwise they would not talk about just one series...look What Bangladesh did in last 2 years or so...Please don't tell that Srilanka,India,Newzealand,Westindies they are all poor time...Bangladesh beat Srilanka in Srilanka..so it is just a matter of time that Bangladesh roar again..Until then.. u guies keep blaming Bangladesh...it is the only thing you are doing at da moment...

Bangladesh is still nt a good team even Afganistan is improving day by day BD stiil seams that they have one or two upsets in the tournament but even though they are not seems to be on Victory stand. BD have good players like sakib, Nasir and razak but they are not consistant.

i think BCB decision is Right.but miss sakib who was the Best played in previous Asia cup.i believe that without sakib,we could go ahead. but remember that, every player should keep a strong confidence and mind set..........Best of luck go Bangladesh go,we are always stay with you....You will played in Field but we will played in outside as like you............

Hey UmairFazlani...u Pakistanis can't respect others, this is why u r going at the bottom day by day...u can't cut up the title 'Unpredictable team' yet...call up ur 90's team & their performance, they were really good. I can remember Saeed Anwar, Saqlain Mustaq, Inzi, Wasim. What a player they was! after that?... Downfall...Their is no doubt BD is really good in Cricket. We just missed our momentum in the Srilankan series & hope we will come back soon...& no doubt Sakib is no. 1 all rounder in any format of Cricket. Respect others & u will be respected
