    "There has always been a thought that Australian players don't like it when other captains stand up to them. They like to make fun of a Mike Brearley or a Jeremy Coney, but put a Sourav Ganguly or an Arjuna Ranatunga in front of them - someone who stands up and mouths off -and they hate it." - Jarrod Kimber

    I think they have had a decent batting line up for a while. I mean Tamim, Mushfiq, Shakib, Mahmudullah have been playing for a few years now and have been for most part pretty solid. Add that to the ridiculously long batting line ups they always picked, they have been posting solid totals for a while now..I remember even against West Indies in 2012 they posted decent totals. The problem was their bowling which wasn't really test standard and they would barely bowl out a team once until the emergence of Mustafiz in 2015 and Mehedi last year. Now that they have 2 test standard bowlers alongside Shakib, you are seeing a different level of competitiveness from them now.

    Fantastic achievement Bangladesh.

    Agree with some of the other comments here that the path to a competitive cricket side, especially in tests, seems to depends as much as the development of a culture over time as it does on number of matches played. So it's no surprise that they don't experience much success until the team is made from players who were watching the game as young kids in 2000, when the country was first given Test Status, and have then grown up with that in mind.

    That is before their England win of last year and before the emergence of Mehedi.

    And they were still pretty **** in the tests they played in 2015.
    Did do reasonably well against South Africa tbf. 2015 was the signs that the tide was turning for Bangladesh.

    Well done Bangladesh. They've built solidly for a few seasons, they are still a slightly overrated ODI side but their Test side is coming on. Reckon they are stronger than the Windies now and on a par with Sri Lanka.

    Wait.. why did Tamim get MoM??

    Shakib had 131 runs and 6 wickets in the match ffs.

    Just because his 82 was on the last day doesn't mean he won Ban the match. The bigger contributor by far was Shakib.

    took a 100 tests in coming but a very meaningful victory.

    well played bangers
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    The wins are coming more frequently for them, let's hope that they settle into a groove and give the world some quality Test match cricket.

    True and a test win always has multiple key contributions but Shakib's century at a crucial stage in the first innings and his 4 wickets in the 2nd innings should have made him the clear MOM candidate.
