The way Price and Taylor was batting at one point didn't it seem that they would bat out the fifty overs? Powerplay taken at 46th over. Would you not have at least two overs of Dolar to finish the game? Just an observation. fifer is meaningless if the captain makes tactical mistakes and concede the advantage. What if that 5th wicket never came in the middle overs and we would only have Rasel to close out the innings. You would want the spinners to bowl 47th, 49th or 48th, 50th overs (with powerplay on)? If Shakib followed your strategy and Shaheba didn't bail us out, we would be chasing 240+.
