    Full credit to Bangladesh. From the beginning of this tour to the end of it, they've exposed our lack of spin bowling options and deserve this result.

    Ugh, just think what a half strength Sri Lanka side is going to do to us...might give it a miss.
    Bet you won quite a bit of money there considering our first innings score. Congrats.

    I was thinking what would happen if we were playing the Indians with this team. Hell, they'd probably put 500 on us in 50 overs.

    I had money on Bangladesh to win at the start of the game, got some ridiculous odds, they weren't even favourites..

    We've been behind them before haven't we? Only recently past them again.

    Bangladesh seriously needs to get more series against top 8 nations. They are no longer minnows but nor will they improve further without more matches.
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan


    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood

    Well done Banglas, really impressive, winning without their best player (who I think was instrumental in previous wins over the Kiwis), showed a good depth, and differing personalities coming up with the goods when needed, like a proper good team.
    Do I contradict myself?

    A proper run chase this time as well. Often an upset relies on an out-of-nowhere blitz or a hilarious batting collapse that's stumbled towards. But that never happened this series, and especially not today. NZ put up a good score and Bangladesh responded with a well-timed run chase that had contributions right down the order. Textbook, easily repeatable stuff.

    Just goes to show - it wasn't really an upset at the last 'Banglawash' and it isn't now. Touring Bangladesh with an unsuited side that plays badly means you get smashed, just as for any other country.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I caught a ferry in to work this morning, saw a beautiful sunrise, thought it was going to be a lovely Monday... then checked the result of this game. Sigh.
