    I'm playing England and am in 2014 and my team is pretty amazing. I've a batman "Fred Cadbury" who averages more than 60 in tests and I have 3 good spinners Swann and two regen Leg Spinners who average around 25, last year one of them was averaging around 20.

    More than 60? Sweet.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Getting out the old Bangladesh save for the weekend.

    Has anyone else tried to get them too the top? I'm in Feb 2012, just went down by 3 runs trying to chase 182, shame my batting couldn't make it after a superb bowling effort.

    Drew an ODI series with the WI 1-1 the other week. Tied a game chasing 320, was gutted.

    Good stuff.

    Kapali has been recommended to me, found out he's a bit of a dud for me. Ashraful is coming good, made 94 coming in at 5/20 to get us to 202, which we lost with 5 overs to spare.

    3-0 lost, but all 3 games could have been won if we stood up at the right time.

    EDIT: On Kapali, I meant he's dire in Test. In ODI he is pretty dominance with the ball.

    Needing an opener ATM. Heading into the ODI's v South Africa with Iqbal then running Rahim or possibly an allrouder as the second opener.

    Nafees is good but far too slow, Siddique isn't good in OD.

    10 run win over SA. Pretty stoked with a good batting effort to post >200, then Shahzaza stood up in his debut to take 4/45, and deliver the final over which they needed 13 in, he only let them get 2.

    Top stuff, hopefully a team on the up.

    Ah ****, fell 4 runs short in the chase in the 3rd and final ODI. 2-1 loss, almost got over the line there.

    Bangladesh is becoming really competitive, hoping this team can continue to grow and we can come to dominate world cricket in the near future.

    Bangladesh's decent on ICC in my New Zealand games after a few years of progress - the game engine has traditionally been pretty kind for spinners and so by playing a spin bowling army they're a tough opposition to beat in later years.

    Can't remember the name of the second opener I found, only a young lad but averaging ~ 50 after ~12 Tests.

    Yeah - Hasan, Razzak and Sunny are all amazing.

    Playing as NZ, they beat me once in a home Test series!

    Shakib's a major flop with me. Averages about 20 with the bat and 40 with the ball. Dire.
    Oh and Mahmudullah being a medium pacer is ghey.

    >40 with bat usually, unfortunately it's the same with the ball.
