    ZIM has declined so much that these days hardly anyone bothers for their schedule. This could have been quite an interesting series even with their Kolpak players.

    Sometimes, I feel ICC should modify Kolpak rule to protect cricket in ZIM, SAF, WI & NZ. In fact, I think through marriage, even Asian players can avail Kolpak qualification. For us Asians, it might not be big issue for the size of player pools, but those countries can't survive with such talent drain.

    The worst part is, England is plucking players of their choice from Kolpak for 3/4 years cricket in County (& not representing country of birth), but to avail Kolpak, players have to leave their national team, which to me isn't fair.

    FIFA does allow players to change International affiliation from age level (U21 level), but once a player has played any official FIFA or Continental Conference match for one country, it's almost impossible for him to change nationality. But major football leagues (French, Italian, Spanish, German, English ..) actually recognize duel citizenship in terms of home grown quota. For example, one of the main reasons that Pogba's price shooted is that despite being French International, he is covering 1 of 8 home grown quota in EPL for his youth time at MU academy. Similarly, Griezzman is counted local/home grown in Spain from his mother side.

    Why we should be bothered about other countries crisis or decline in cricket ? Was there any sympathy for Pakistan post 9/11 when certain teams repeatedly refused to tour, most notably Australia. Did that ruthless West indian team of 1980's bother to bring cricket back to South Africa, all they cared was win win and win. We should be self-centered, I give absolute monkey peanuts for status of cricket in Zimbabwe or South Africa or West indies. We need to win and win only. The next world cup 2019, test series in south africa should be top priorities.

    An actual CRICKET lover would bother with any decline of cricket of any country. Pak's problems were totally self made and most have nothing to do unless Pak gov't solve the problem. But still a true cricket lover want Pak cricket to flourish. I want too like many others and i also want the rise of Wi,Zim,Afg cricket for the betterment of world cricket. Be a cricket fan.

    Solomon Mire looks quite a decent batsman. Good against pace and spin. If he learns the use of walking down the pitch to nudge the ball in gap against spin, He will be very handful. At present he looks like an LBW suspect.

    With all due respect to Sri Lanka they are the new Pakistan. Pakistan these days are kind of consistent. BD too are considtent.

    Srilanka are the new unpredictables. One match world class. Next match really poor.

    This was the case when we toured Lanka. They played poorly in alternative matches and played exceptionally well in alternative matches.

    Shazzy, honestly, if they still had the Kolpak players, they would be ranked 5/6 in all formats. Even if their kolpak players decide to make a return right now, things could turn out to be much, much better. Hopefully Taylor and Jarvis come back after their contract ends.

    Am not sure they will, they are paid better and are on a guaranteed money contract which is just too good to refuse unfortunately; and the most sad fact of all is, if they do return at the international level chances are it will be for England providing they meet the qualification criteria. Jarvis has enjoyed a great run in country cricket, when his contract expires it will either be extended by Lancashire or he'll be offered a better deal else where.

    Their problems are just a lot more deep rooted but I find it soothing when these boys display so much courage despite the fact that they are treated like garbage and not given adequate support, if their administration improved they could not only compete in the Top 5 but potentially win a ICC Trophy; perhaps the World T20, that's how much confidence I have in their talent pool.

    @ExpressPacer One of the fundamental reasons why they toured Pakistan was money. I have to respect their loyalty to Zimbabwean cricket though, many players tend to have young family's and financial security is always at the back of their mind because it is never guaranteed.

    I might be the happiest person on Pakpassion after this win for Zimbabwe but if I were to be honest, Zimbabwe don't stand a chance vs Bangladesh. They were humiliated by Zimbabwe, thrashed by Scotland and demolished by Netherlands. I wish Zimbabwe cricket the very best of luck and hope they improve but the truth it, they don't stand a chance vs Bangladesh. This was most likely just a fluke.

    Sir... they beat BD in BD last year in a T20 series and drew the ODI series, or maybe it was the other way round. BD and ZIM are same quality sides.

    First of all this is the result of the previous series against Zimbabwe. They toured us in late 2014. Lost tests 3-0 and ODIs 5-0. Again toured us in 2015 lost 3-0 in ODIs and 1-1 in T20Is. Now believe me neither of those wins by Bangladesh were "close" by any means. The closest match was the loss to Zimbabwe in which we lost in the final over.

    No Bangladesh Zimbabwe won't be an "even match". It may be competitive in Zimbabwe but not even close in Bangladesh.

    why you have to put name of pakistan team in each and every thread srilanka are not pakistan

    do i remind you what happen to your team last year in home series against afghanistan

    and when was last time you win a series against top side ?

    is not a shame that your team could not win a single series against SL recently

    one match doesn,t prove anything i know you are very desperate to not miss any opportunity to criticize pak

    or sl

    Lanka beat India recently and then Pakistan hammered India by like 200 runs. So perhaps India are the team who are returning to minnowship, they only got to the CT final after hammering the rain blessed Bangladesh; then again Bangladesh are just Bangladesh nothing else needs to be said @saeed5646

    Bangaldesh have whitewashed Zimbabwe in their last two ODI series, they've won all eight of their last encounters. Zimbabwe played spin very poorly on those tours.

    If the series were in Zimbabwe, there is a bit of seam movement in the morning at Harare Sports Club but the pitches are mainly slow and low so it would suit Bangladesh.

    WI are struggling but I'd still back them to win an ODI series vs Zimbabwe, but Zimbabwe have the ability to nick the odd game.

    The issue for Zimbabwe is corrupt administration and a weak domestic system. They're just not producing the talent and the FC players have gone on strike repeatedly as wages aren't being paid on time.

    The ZCB have mismanaged and pocketed ICC funds for personal use. On one occasion a loan were directed into the bank of a ZCB director who sat on their board ! For years Harare has not staged day night games because ZCB couldn't afford the cost of installing the floodlights so the pylons just sat at Harare airport ! Also there is too much interference from Mugabe regime.

    And that's not mentioning the racial politics. Sadly Zimbabwe have not kept their top white cricketers like Taylor, Jarvis, Ballance and Curran.

    Very good win for the Zimbo's.Really happy for them.Their team would be better if Taylor,Jarvis etc were still playing for them.

    Sadly I feel this win is just a one-off.

    some fans are trying to convince us that ban are far far better than SL but in reality both the

    Team are same and recent result between both have shown that

    That was 2 years ago. Back then, Pakistan vs Bangladesh was also not competitive. Like I said, with the way Zimbabwe played today, it would give a run to a team like Bangladesh for sure. Right now, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are on the same level. West Indies could be on that level too if the board can convince to bring some players such as Darren Bravo back in the team.

    I didn't disagree that Pakistan are doing better. Just saying Lanka are the new unpredictables.

    Yes run for their money. They can beat us in the odd game or two but otherwise I would back ourselves to beat Zimbabwe often.

    Without fakhar and Hasan firing Pak team won't win against sl. And everyday they both won't perform. Don't try to make your whole team world class as there is 7/8 passengers in the team.

    9 or 10 of Pakistani players would walk into the BD side. Amir, Junaid and Hasan are all better bowlers than anything BD have. Shadab is a far better bowler than Miraz. Shakib is better than Imad I'll give you that.

    Soumya, Kayes Shabbir and Mushfiqur are all low grade batsmen compared to Fakhar, Azhar, Babar and Sarfaraz.

    In fact if the BD and Pak teams are merged the only three BD players who would make the playing eleven would be Tamim, Shakib and Mahmuddulah.


    There is a reason why you managed to win only one match in the tournament and we beat all the best sides in the world 4 out of 4 times.

    With Azhar/Sharjeel and Fakhar, Tamim has no chance to open. The only player I would accept from their team is Shakib.

    PP's fascination with BD team is praise worthy - in every opportunity we are called in names.

    Afghans beat WI - bring BD
    Zimboks bet Lankans - call BD
    today if WI beats IND - call BD
    ...

    Tomorrow if Germany beats Chile - bring BD or
    Chile beats Germany - sermon BD .....

    It's great to be in lime light.
