    BD definitely stopped being ODI minnows around 2005-2007 fwiw. They were starting to win games more frequently, knocked India out the WC, and were showing genuine progress that had everyone hyped. Then they lost some players to the ICL, developed a choking streak, and regressed a bit before correcting themselves at around 2010. But they did shed the 'minnow' tag in ODIs during that time.

    Do losses in India and UAE count?

    Our last visit there was a 1-1 draw & SL were a better side then than now. I'm sure you would have said the same when NZ visited UAE to play Pakistan after you guys were whitewashed by them in late 2014, but NZ drew that series 1-1 as well,

    NZ were horrendous against a very strong Indian side & have played awful Test cricket for 18 months or so now, but let's not pretend Australia have generally been a better SC touring side than NZ in the last 5 years or so, that would be silly.

    It was 1-1 last time we went (just like our tour to the UAE). India aside, NZ is much better going to Asia than to Aus or SAf.

    EDIT: What Zinzan said

    I guess in that way, Australians and their cricket team are like a poor man's version of NZers and the All Blacks. We lost to Ireland for the first time ever last year (after about 111 years of playing them) and I'm still annoyed about it.

    And their very competitive showing vs Australia in that Test I referred to in 2006? I mean I know they didn't quite win and probably squandered opportunities after being on top, but boy they were competitive, so they can't have been minnows back in 2006 after all right? Same logic.

    Vettori would be happy to learn this fact retrospectively btw, because his cheap returns vs. Bangers in the mid/late 2000s were always kind of overlooked as being against a minnow.

    I'm sure NZ must have been whitewashed around 2006-2010 period in SL or they must have only played 2 tests and lost 2-0

    Probably a good parallel that.

    Best they achieved was a 2-0 margin in 2009. Every other tour NZ have at the vert least drawn matches.

    While we're on minnow classification. it's always kind of irked me slightly that NZ have been minnow-like on several occasions in their Test history, yet overseas fans wouldn't dare want to remove some of their favourite players records against us, when we were genuinely 'minnow-like'.

    There was a period around 1995 in particular when NZ were so bad they even lost to the other weakest side in the world around that time, Sri Lanka in their own backyard. Some of us are old enough to remember our disastrous centenary year.

    Surprisingly we have never lost to Zimbabwe when India (twice) and Pakistan (three times) have. Zimbabwe had a pretty decent side in the mid to late 90s.

    Actually, we always seemed to thrive in playing Zim & Bang, especially in the 2000s, and we were actually real minnow bashers for a time, while other sides like Pakistan & India would drop their bundles against weak opposition, our guys were at their best. Nobody better than Vettori when he sniffed a slightly sub-par batting line-up. Jeez did he used to carve up Bangers in particular, and on any pitches.

    Nice one Bangladesh. Knew they would improve away from home but wasn't expecting it so soon.

    Zorax, still waiting for your answer on whether we should have removed the Test minnow tag from Bangers back in 2006, when they played such a competitive cricket Test against the then number 1 side in the world, Australia.
