    Yes, and it's for that reason that people have taken great pleasure in you looking so stupid when results like Saturday's happen, and then bring it up.

    Well technically, according to your first chance theory that would not have been a chance because either he nicked it or he didn't and according to the umpires judgement he didn't.

    There was nothing obvious about it? If not, then fair enough - no chance given, but if the footage clearly revealed a nick - it was out, simple as.

    Think of me as looking stupid if you want - I never said Bangladesh beating South Africa was impossible.

    I don't feel stupid, and that's about all that matters.

    You have been bashing Bangladesh, and saying they don't deserve to be playing ODIs since you came on here.

    You're still continuing to do it, in spite of the clear evidence that they deserve to be playing ODIs and are competing more and more.

    If you persist in this attitude, then you'll continue to look stupid every time they win a game...

    I have, and rightly so. Until very, very recently there was no reason whatsoever why they did.

    No, there has only in the last couple of weeks appeared evidence of such a thing. I am, however, pointing-out that there has been no magic bullet. I've done such a thing many, many times in many cases. It's a pretty good idea, really - because then you look good if what everyone has prematurely been saying has now happened turns-out not to have happened.
    If you persist in this attitude, then you'll continue to look stupid every time they win a game...
    No, I won't, because I've never once said they can never win so much as a single game.

    Reality check, it's much more than a "single game", yet you still persist in denying that they deserve to be here.

    Well what is it then?.Until Bangladesh become more consistent in beating top 8 ODI teams they still can only be considered an average ODI team.They are however improving and I enjoy the way they play their cricket with enthuisiasm and a love for the game.

    And can you explain how he is a rubbish player?

    Well for one they've won two games against quality sides. You can't just keep rubbishing Bangladeshi cricket by calling each of their triumphs just "one win" if they start stringing them together over a relatively short period of time. If a win is a streaky one off that only occurs rarely then two wins would be rare^2. Much more likely that Bangladesh are genuinely improving.

    Because he produces an innings of any real substance about once every 2 years.And then everybody raves about him...

    he's been producing helpful innings since he's been back and that's all the team needed from him since he was batting at 5-7

    Reality-check - you need to read that line again.

    Because he's made a career out of scoring very few runs - the very definition of a rubbish batsman.
