    May be Matt Prior would have been a better choice than Nixon. He scored heavily throughout the series.

    Also Adil Rashid has to go a long way before he can be successful against quality oppositins. He gave away 41 runs from his 6 overs.

    No, and yes, obviously.

    Prior is absolutely terrible.

    Terrible by the standards of a First-Class cricketer.

    Good result for cricket. I'm obviously disappointed as an Englishman, but it hopefully shows there's been some improvement in Bangladeshi cricket. It is a genuine Bangladesh "A" too, as opposed to their first team in all but name as has sometimes been the case previously.

    That's ridiculously harsh. His keeping is clearly short of international standard, but his batting is relatively serviceable at domestic level at least.

    So what would that make Gerard Brophy,Niall O'Brien and Carl Gazzard?No point in them purseying a career in cricket probably according to you.I've always thought an average of nearly 39 in first class cricket for a wickie meant he was terrible...

    They did have six England internationals in Kirtley, Broad, Prior, Bresnan, Loudon and Yardy and future England hopefuls like Adil Rashid.

    It is not embarrassing to lose to this genuine Bangladesh 'A' team as they have recently drawn unofficial test series with Sri lanka 'A' and lost the 'ODI' series 2-1 in home soil about a year ago. They also defeated the Zimbabwean national team one nill in a 2 match series. An all Australian coaching staff looks after this Bnagladesh 'A' team so it is a quite well trained unit. With the end of the series with England 'A', they will be now of to Sri lanka to play Sri Lanka 'A' again in a 2 match 'Test' series and a 3 match 'ODI' series.

    The fact that every single one of those players has played international cricket (ODIs only in the case of all bar Kirtley) is something of a joke in all cases bar Kirtley.

    Rashid is just that - a hope. Nothing more yet.

    And no more than that.

    Gazzard is absolutely rubbish and should never, ever be playing First-Class cricket.

    Brophy and O'Brien are worthy 2nd-string wicketkeepers - not of the class of Blakey and Geraint Jones.
