Annoyed that Bangladesh seem to perform so poorly. They have a cracking team but seem to just crack so easily. In a few years they will be a top top side though. Just need to show more bite right now, been very dissapointing in this series.

I think to call them a cracking team would require them to be consistent, wouldn't it?

This series against Sri Lanka has been terrible, in Tests they seem so much more out of depth.

Tushar Imran is a terrible cricketer. Not only does he average a touch more than Glenn McGrath in test cricket, but he wastes so many balls, and doesnt score runs in ODI cricket.

He's useless, he should just hit out or get out, because 7 off 5 balls is better than 4 off 30, which is what he scored today, and it basically ruined Bangladesh of any opportunity make a decent score.

No, in terms of their players are cracking. Ashraful, Bashar, Iqbal, Rasel, Mashrafe, Hossain, Nafees, Razzak, Shakib al Hasan etc. They have some very talented players and just need to be given time and not written off. They will be a very competitive side in 2-3 years.

Cracking in what context? None of those would get in the England team or probably any of the other 7 test nations, maybe WIndies excluded. They look so out of depth.

Don't know, they may get into an English ODI team, a few of them. ;)

39 run victory. They're at least being alot more competitive in ODI's these days.

It was good bowling in the death but the Sri Lankan bowlers were too good for the Bangladeshi top order. Great innings from Tamim but looked like no one wanted to help him out.

Just goes to prove the fact that Bangladesh's World Cup run was a mere fluke

No, it goes to show that being a good team isn't about being able to beat better teams, it is about putting in good performances constantly. That's an important thing for Pakistan and India to note as much as Bangladesh.
