    Bangladesh still look miles off the pace. The West Indies are only 2 places above them yet they get hammered...there's a huge gulf.

    Yet a few months ago they pushed the West Indies all the way in both ODI's and tests.

    Yeah but I also think the Windies have improved over the last month in ODI's anyway.
    It's easy for sides to take Bangladesh lightly at home..NZ did the same thing I can recall.

    You'd think after 5 years as a test nation they could do a little better than being regulary bowled out for 100 odd & conceding more than 250 runs.

    Very true.

    It's interesting to note that (I believe) there's only ever been one ODI ton by a Bangladeshi batsman - in 95 attempts.

    Dav Whatmore must have been pulling what little hair remains today - it seems they only bat from 7 down.

    You believe correctly. Mehrab Hossain's 101 against Zimbabwe at Dhaka in March 1999.

    However, his ODI average is now 24.94 (and 13.38 in Tests), and in April of this year, this happened (Cricinfo):

    Mehrab Hossain, the only Bangladeshi to score a one-day international century, has been banned from domestic and international cricket for a year, after dishonouring the terms of his contract. He compounded his action by failing to appear at a Bangladesh Cricket Board hearing.

    Mehrab had reportedly agreed to represent the drug manufacturer, Acme Laboratories, in the inaugural Corporate Cricket League competition, and had even accepted a 15,000 taka advance ($254.24). But he was subsequently approached by GrameenPhone, Bangladesh's largest mobile phone provider and current sponsors of the national team.

    "I went through all the papers submitted by Acme, including a voucher of Tk 15,000 paid to Mehrab, and found no reason to doubt their claim," said Khondokar Jamiluddin, the chairman of the CCL committee. "The board acted on the organising committee's recommendation." A senior BCB official added: "We have decided to bar him for a year as he failed to appear before the BCB for a hearing on the Acme allegation."

    Mehrab, 25, averaged 13.38 with the bat in nine Test appearances, and has also played in 18 ODIs. His last Test appearance was against South Africa in Dhaka in May 2003.

    Ah, good old Acme.

    So is that why Bangladesh are playing guys who are no better than Wile E Coyote?

    So insightful. Yes, we've only ever beaten the useless teams ey?
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Just goes to show that you don't improve by playing Tests and ODIs, and ICC were wholly stupid to put them in there and devalue ODI- and Test-cricket for 5 years.

    In fairness they've played better Test cricket over the last year or so.

    i do agree that bangladesh were given test status early..but you have to remember NZ started tests in 1929..they didnt win a test until 1955/56 (45th test)..before which they averaged 24 runs per wicket and conceded 42 runs per wicket taken..and when they beat the WI in the 1979/80 series, that was only their 11th test win of all time.

    Sri Lanka only won 1 test in their first 5 years of being a test playing team..and even after 10 years were still a very poor team.

    These things do take time..I am sure that in 20 years time we will look back and wonder how we could have ever doubted it was the right choice to let them in..because I think they may well be right up there with the better teams by then.

    Not if you listen to Richard.

    But then again he probably won't consider them a substandard side if a run of 1 win in 34 isn't substandard.

    I consider Bangladesh a massively substandard side.
    I think there have been very small signs that things might just begin to change in the last year-and-a-bit.
    So far, little has actually been altered.
