Observation about team tactics

The team think tank should have noticed that the batting team in this Tri Nation is not good enough to put pressure on Bangladesh bowlers batting first.

Not enough run on the board to cause our soso bowlers to defend

In reply to InHindsight okay, say they noticed, what changes should have been made?

So when are the main players available or they can't participate in this series?

Russell and Gayle were out of IPL probably a week ago...I thought that they would be filing into the team by now.

Second string players should play in an A team tour, not in a Tri-Nation series just before the WC.

Even if they were to win the final how does it help towards their WC bid?

I am perplexed....

there was no such intention. Giving exposure to a wider pool of players.

… need to be rested for CWC.

… is who we playing?

… confidence builder, having beaten Bang with this team.

They are not in this squad. How could you have known these guys would be available?

thanks for the responses as I really wasn't aware of the setup for this tour..

don't see that happening although cricket is a game of glorious uncertainty...

In reply to hotarobin … I am up for a friendly wager. West Indies will not lose 3 in a row to Bangladesh.
