I think we were frustrated and looking for our favorite scapegoat for this game.

Actually looking back to the scoreboard in this particular game, SS not only was the 2nd best run scorer, but also had the 3rd best SR (73), which was not great but not bad also based on when he came and where the team was at that time.

How good/bad was his 33 runs? He scored more than what Imrul, Mustafiz, Mithun, Mahmuduallah, Mashrafee,Nazmul, Mustafiz and Rubel scored combined ( i.e. 33 vs 29 combined).

There was accusation that he didn't provide support to his tail-enders. True. But everything needs to be in perspective. He is less experienced and struggling and cam as #7. Do you recall Maushfiq's century in this tournament? He did similar things before one handed Tamim came and Mushfiq exploded. I dont reall anybody complained at that time. My point is, our team does that occasionally, but only selectively get criticized.
