    Bangladesh ODI watch

    Could Bangladesh have finally turned the corner? The ODI side is now possibly better (although not in the rankings) than WI, Pakistan, England and perhaps even a Sanga & Mahela-less SL

    Second best Asian team in Asia in my opinion. I still think they need to win some series outside the sub-continent.

    They turned a corner in 2011 when the current generation started to get a few years experience. Their record since then has been ODI standard easily.

    I think it shapes up pretty well to when SL became decent if you measure it in years as well. Obviously Bangers have played a lot more matches than SL did when they started out, but the development hasn't been as slow as it has felt.

    In all seriousness they could still have a lot of their lineup in 2023.

    Tamim will be 34
    Rahim will be 34
    Shakib will be 36
    Sarkar will be 30
    Nasir will be 31
    Taskin will be 28
    Rubel will be 33

    If you bank on 75% of those guys being there and hopefully at a slightly higher or at the very least more experienced standard than they are now, thats a pretty solid backbone to the team. Gives them 8 years to find players to compliment or replace them.

    The success is all down to Mushfiqur btw.

    As a side note it should be noted that Flem is a Rahim hater.

    Would like to see SL play without Sanga/Mahela in the SC for a while before making a judgement but I find it hard to believe they'd be better than us at this stage, our bowlers are pretty damn good at the choke on turning pitches.

    Yea 2014 was an aberration. A bad year. They turned a corner when they Banglawashed NZ, and also reaching the Asia Cup finals some time later.

    They need to play overseas more. And they need a bit more depth. But they're getting there.

    Reminds me of that part in the simpsons where marge is being consoled by the therapist after she remembers her dad being a steward...

    "You might say he was a pioneer"

    "Yeah, you might even say he was an American hero"

    "Lets not go mad"

    They really should have won the 2012 Asia Cup.

    Bangladesh have gone from poor to mediocre bordering on good in a fairly short amount of time. Since the team is so young I reckon they'll be well into the 'good' part of the spectrum by 2019.

    Bangladesh has been good,they've been awesome has a unit.But don't think they have massive firepower left in their tanks.Their bowlers do need to impress.ODI cricket is not that tough.Only test cricket will test them.They need to groom their fast bowlers well.I was impressed by Taskin Ahmed as a pacie.Even Rubel was okay.They need more pace and aggression.That's what these Bangla bowlers are lacking atm.Their batsmen look okay.But they need batsman like Anamula Haque to step up.They've got lot of spinning all rounder.Its high time they need to find a proper fast bowling all rounder.Pakistan had Imran Khan and India had Kapil Dev to lift their spirits when they were going low.Sri Lanka had agggressive batsman in Sanath,Aravinda and Arjuna.Later on they banked upo Vaas And Murali who turned out to be great.Same thing needs to happen from Bangladesh perspective.They need individuals who could lift the burden of the entire nation.If that happens they'll be a side to watch
