    Are Bangers enough of an underdog for them beating a top team at some stage to be surprising? No imo. Especially at home.

    Zimbo have some quality spin options so wouldn't be surprised to see them rattle a big team.

    I expect its when the associates win that really rocks the ICC boat, i imagine to some degree they don't mind Bangladesh getting up everynow and then they do have test status. this being their "home turf" they could cause alot of damage.

    The Irish and Dutch could take down any team on their day IMO. Ireland is better now than in 07.

    Zim to beat NZ for mine, but does that really count as an upset? Probably if it wasnt on the sub continent, but I can just see their spinners strangling us to death in the middle

    I think Canada and Ireland have both knocked over the Banglas since they became a test side too, would count as upsets too for my quid.

    Oh and Zim beat Oz in (IIRC) 83 as well.

    Upsets happen all the time. It's more when a shocking result happens that is worthy of what this thread is looking for I imagine.

    I'd say Ireland beating Bangladesh last year wasn't shocking, just an upset.

    Bangladesh beating India was pretty shocking. And Ireland beating Pakistan was even more shocking.

    Big one I can think of is Australia/Zimbabwe. Our middle order is very suspect against spin and if Zimbabwe have any strengths, it's their spinners.
