Just playing alongside of Mathews would have been a much better preparation that playing all those crap teams in no-pressure practice matches in a wicket that has nothing similar to WC pitches..
and for those who are in "favor" of mushi, put your sentiment away and grow up. are the rest of the BD team players are babies that cannot fly without their captain or morally become weak if captain is not with them? what do you think the captain will do during the flight? what sort of motivation you are talking about? players dont have motivation if captain is not with them? who gives a cr*p? tamim? sakib? if someone needs captain to fly with him, he is not mentally strong enough to play in intl level. stop those emotional thing that mushi must go with the team as a captain. not that he will miss any game if he flies a day later. the first game is not before 6th. totally unprofessional from mushi.
Back to the future!
