    Wow, Shouldn't Zimbabwe play Scotland instead. I believe Bangladesh are too good to play teams like Scotland. BTW I heard India is to play Scotland later on next year, is that true?

    How the hell do you expect Scotland (and Holland, Canada, Ireland...) to develop then?

    Last time these two teams meet in World Cup friendlies in 2003, the matches were pretty close. I expect Scotland to push Bangladesh a lot harder then Zimbabwe. I could see them pulling off a win, if Dougie Brown playing for Scotland?

    I predict 2-0 to Bangladesh, but I think Scotland would have won 2-0 had the series been played in Edinburgh.

    And yes, Scotland are due to play India on August 3, 2007.

    That's sad I believe. Then they should play every other test nation also in a ODI.

    They will if they keep their ODI status after the World Cup. I see no reason why Scotland, Ireland and Holland can't play against Test Nations in ODI, they have earned the right. Also how are going to be fast tracked if they only play each other.

    IMO Scotland and Ireland are just below Bangladesh.

    Scotland squad:

    Craig Wright (c) RHB, RM
    John Blain RHB, RMF
    Dougie Brown RHB, RFM
    Gavin Hamilton LHB, dnb any more
    Majid Haq LHB, OB
    Paul Hoffmann RHB, RMF
    Omer Hussain LHB, wk
    Dougie Lockhart RHB, wk
    Ross Lyons LHB,SLA
    Neil F. I. McCallum RHB
    Glenn Rogers SLA
    Navdeep Poonia RHB, RMF
    Colin Smith RHB, wk
    Ryan Watson RHB, RMF (token hard-hitting allrounder)
    Fraser Watts RHB

    Btw, Scotland tied 1-1 at home without Blain, Brown or Hamilton against Bangladesh two years ago.

    Do not underestimate the scottish. You saw how close they came to killing Pakistan (At 93-5 at one stage!) and after Somerset beat the Aussies, Scotland beat Somerset a few days later.

    The same argument can be used for Bangladesh vs. anyone not Zimbabwe.
