    U r confused. If tomorrow Brazil gets disintegrated into two parts like the way Germany got seperated after ww2, nobody will start saying that West Brazil or East Brazil has started playing international football in 2018. Right?

    Now u might ask that then BD was also a part of Pak before 71, then why do they have such a short cricket history. Very good question. But the thing is cricket was never considered as a sport in this part of the world. Football has always ruled here.

    As a matter of fact Bangladesh didn't even have a structure of first class cricket even 20 years ago since the national cricket league in Bangladesh started in 2000. Comare it with a country like India who has introduced Ranji trophy almost 100 years ago. There's no comparison.

    India was the whooping boys in their first couple of decades in cricket and routinely got beaten to the pulp by other international teams. Similarly New Zealand took 40 years to win their first ever test series. There's nothing wrong in accepting the fact that compared to these slow learners Bangladesh is in a different league.

    20 years haven't even passed since Bangladesh introduced national cricket league and it has already produced a great of the game like shakib as well as world class players like mushy, Tamim, fizz. Just imagine what class of players Bangladesh would've produced if it had had a domestic structure with 100 years of experience like Indian Ranji trophy.

    You can’t put any logical arguments on becoming powerhouse with current ranking positions. With stress of imagination, after 10-12 years may be we can hope, but that’s not based on current “talent”. As of now, at least put a word “potential”, you can have something for good posters here to get engaged.

    Weren't u the same individual who was claiming AFG would get past BD in next 3/4 years and blabbering about why BD don't deserve a full fledged series in UAE. BUT in the very next odi tournament ur own team got beaten to the pulp in their home ground in front of their own crowd by that same Bangladesh team. I could've bumped up that thread right after Asia cup final, but obviously I didn't consider it worthy enough to waste my time on it. U r too easy.


    Pakistan got hammered in every single ODIs they played against Bangladesh in last 4/5 years and lost 4/5 ODIs straight in a row. Let that information sink in for a moment.


    Losing a t20 series which has little to no significance in the world arena unless its a world t20 means little to nothing. This is exactly why 5 times world champion Australia lost pointless t20 series against minnow SL at home, World's top most test and odi team SA resides at the bottom of the pile in t20 ranking. Because this format doesn't have any significance beside different foreign leagues.


    Lastly, Bangladesh have won and drawn test series both at home and outside their home even though they have been playing this format for not more than 15/16 years, have smashed world class odi teams at home, went to the quarterfinal and semifinal of the last two icc world events, went to the final of three Asia cups and easily could've won two of them but couldn't do so due to poor umpiring and bad luck. BD also had the thrid best t20 leave in the world after IPL and BBL where hundreds of foreign players take part.


    Many countries that have been playing cricket for 70/80 years haven't managed to develop a cricket structure that we have built in less than 20 years which has managed to give the cricket World a batsman of Mushy's caliber, an opener of Tamim's stature, A bowler of Fizz's quality and last but not least it has produced someone like Shakib who is one of the best allrounders this world has ever seen. If this isn't the perfect example of a country becoming a cricket powerhouse then nothing else is.
    Firstly, it was you who came up with such an attention seeking OP not me - so I'm not the attention seeker.

    Deep down you know Afghanistan will overtake Bangladesh in the near future. They have better genetics and are just far more talented individuals. With BCCI backing their progression will continue. The loss of 4 LOI games out of the last 5 against them is just a sign of things to come.

    I'd be more concerned about your 7th ranking and lack of success away from home with no ICC trophies to date rather than being obsessive about Pakistan, after all you're on a Pakistani cricket forum to seek approval from Pakistani (and Indian) fans on here with threads like this.

    "Losing a t20 series which has little to no significance in the world arena unless its a world t20"

    Then why bring up the Nidhas final as an achievement?

    Don't be so delusional, you lost the QF WC 3 yrs ago because India was the better team - stop reading off Nazmul's script for once. He's a disgrace but yet you reek of the same sour grapes as he does.

    In addition the 2017 CT Semi final spot was a fluke because you were saved by rain against Aus when they were 100 runs away, with 9 wickets in hand and 34 overs to spare. There was only going to be one winner against that minnow bowling attack.

    I don't know how old you are but you epitomise the lack of maturity among many of the Bangladesh fans with their childish antics and if I was you I would beg admin to delete this thread ASAP because it has turned into a bashing and trolling thread of you as a poster - serving everyone great entertainment.

    Honestly speaking BD has never been a sports nation ever so let alone this talk of powerhouse blah blah. As you mentioned that football was the game in bd, well my friend they lack their too.

    As far as your posts have been concerned the only players that you can name in each post are either shakib..mushy or tamim. Pak..ind..and other countries have produced similar stars in more qty. To be a powerhouse ..talent should be flowing into your system not some 3 guys that are on your fingers tips. Neil johnson and andy flower were great from zimbabwe, were they powerhouse. This thread is such that even level headed and intelligent BD posters have avoided getting into it because they too realise that BD is an improved crixket team but not some next powerhouse team where teams will start sweating. Honestly speaking i have a lot of bd friemds who themselves say that we can do a lot better and are improving every year but they do realise that they have limitations. For me powerhouse definition is india and england ( financially powerful and a good talent pool with a 1st class domestic structure along with adminstration)

    Your assumption is an assumption and sadly a poor one but my friend becoming a powerhouse is based on stats amd sadly they translate a different picture to your powerhouse team.

    You can also say that for me BD won the 2015 worldcup or nidahas trophy or asia cup and this is my opinion and i dont care about yours but that doesnt change the reality. Please dont be a keyboard warrior who is defending something that is not even worth it. Might as well change the thread to improved nation and maybe you may get some constructive comments in here.

    As I said many times in the past, a series between BD-PAK in UAE will be a mouth watering prospect where Bangladesh will start as the favourites in ODIs and ppl will come in members to enjoy the show. Hope u won't disagree with me now by saying that financially it will be a loss for PCB.

    As for the miduim fast bowlers, I think fizz has all the ingredients to become an atg fast bowler, especially in ODIs. But I agree with u that they need a good test class spinner in their line up. Miraz is good but he needs to work on his bowling to get success constantly in test cricket.
    Hi again, yes Bangladesh will be favourites in the ODI format as we are pretty useless at the moment. To be honest the match was good for neutrals but was painful to watch for a hardcore fan like me. Bang played well and deserved to win.

    coming to your future, you really need a world class spinner and a world class medium/fast pacer. Everyone else like fizz etc can then play around this duo. If you can find this duo you should be pretty formidable in most ODI conditions..

    Look at the way we dominated West indies in West indies in Lois or the way we performed in Asia cup and almost won the final even though we were at the reviving end of some pathetic and horrible decisions in some of the most important phases of the game.
    There were no pathetic decisions. Do yourself a favor and get Asia cup out of your mind.

    I want Bang cricket to improve and that they become a better side but cant nod my head when their fans start to say best in the world 2nd best in Asia etc especially when nothing is their to back what they are saying.
    At this point they ain't even 3rd best in Asia
    SL is well ahead of them in tests and also ranked above in t20is
    They have also got better talents to get excited about
    Someone like Kusal Mendis who frustrates a lot with his inconcistency has already played more impactful knocks than any if their youngsters

    Some Bangla fans have a serious inferiority complex which is visible in threads like these and them hyping what are inconsequential things to actual powerhouses or even half-decent teams. When Bangladesh actually does something consequential in all three formats, they will be applauded by everyone rather than fans trying to get people to respect them.

    A great first step would be not playing test cricket like minnows.

    Lose in ODIs (away/alien conditions): Every team loses away.

    No need to be harsh on Bangladeshi fans. Almost all of them on PP are nice posters and don't gloat much. Even if some do we shouldn't be harsh because Indian and Pakistani fans have been through this phase earlier in their history. Only Sri Lankan fans can claim the moral high ground because they have almost always been level headed and chilled out. One poster started this thread and I am not sure behind his intentions, maybe he isn't even Bangladeshi and just trolling.

    Whatever said and done they had a bad day today and it is never nice to kick someone when that person is down, schadenfreude isn't the hallmark of decent people. Moreover they might still fight back and win, test isn't over by any stretch of imagination.

    If a team is a powerhouse then its fans need not open a thread to prove that to others. I do not see the need for the fan of a real powerhouse team to do that.

    Coming to this test match, it appears that Bangladesh, which used to win at home on spinning track are themselves unable to play decent spin. At that rate, they may not be able to win even at home if the opponents have decent spinners in their ranks.

    Every cricket fan wants Ban cricket team to progress. Other fans are not dilusional like some of their fans. We do admire guys like Mortaza, Shakib, Mahmadulla. These guys are very good people wheather their team is winning or losing.
    Only 1-2 players and some fans think that they are world beaters and end up making mockery of themselves.

    Losing test in 3+ days, at home, against this Zimbabwe, who don't play more than one test a year is some achievement.

    No one takes T20 seriously besides W20 or IPL. Do you take T10 seriously?

    Test cricket should be taken seriously, and this loss against ZIM was absolutely pathetic. No excuse here.

    This is really bad for you guys too actually since you got crushed by Eng, who even lost to this hapless BD side last time they were here.

    Very disappointing performance by BD. Losing a test at home to this Zimbabwe team of all teams is unacceptable. 3 years ago, BD were on top of SA in a test match. Looks like the team has regressed a bit.

    BD went to QF's of last world cup beating ENG who has been pawning rest of the teams for past few years. No point equating Tests with ODIs.

    They(ENG) just recently manhandled your team as well.

    For me every format is cricket. It's a different thing that tests are the most challenging format. But all formats have ranking so all got to be respected.


    Coming to Eng series, I'll accept we were thrashed. But, never did we say that this format is useless. For India, tests are the most respected ones.

    I suggest leaving the top-8 trysts aside from the thrust of your arguments - naturally one will win, the other will lose. Neither one of them be minnows unlike the team starting with B.

    Im not sure how you work that out though. England have been pathetic away from home in the last 5 years apart from a good tour of SA . India are pathetic in England but range from exceptional to decent everywhere else we play. BD have no business losing to this Zimbabwe side at home which shows they have declined a bit.

    Test cricket needs a strong BD team and as far as I see BD are the only nation capable of sustaining test cricket among the nations outside of top 6 but with these kind of results im afraid it doesn't augur well.

    Those are not flukes. They are a competitive odi side in Asia and they made the semis of CT and quarters of World Cup in addition to the finals of Asia cup. You can't just fluke all those results.

    They have regressed in Tests quite a bit recently to be honest. Lack of interest, poor team selection, you name it. Agreed, absolutely shameful loss to ZIM.

    It does determine based on various factors which I am not interested to type now.

    But, yeah, it's my opinion, you can have your opinion.

    CT was a fluke and they qualified due to rain. Else it would hv been Ind-Aust semi finals.

    Bangladesh are good (not best) in ODIs in Asian conditions. They will give SENA teams a tough time in Tests too at home. Calling them a cricketing power house is a joke. This ROFL thread will see plenty of bumps in the future.

    It goes back to what we we've been saying - just a matter of a time when Afghanistan surpasses them in all 3 formats.

    They're already a superior T20I unit. I expect by 2023 WC they will go past them in the ODIs and at some point in the early to mid 2020s they will climb above them in tests as well.

    ODI rankings will be reset after WC. AFG can surpass everyone in ODI and rankings if they win. The reset will benefit them the most.

    There are no teams that give tough times to opposition in away Tests, barring the odd game.

    For all the "competition" India gave in England, they lost 4-1. 1 run or 500 runs margin only matters if the scoreline is close.

    So loosing to England and Zimbabwe are one and the same?This is an embarrassment and heads need to be rolled over for this despicable performance against a side that almost lost their test status...All Bangla Fans must be cursing India l for having given Zimababwe lalchand rajput as coach...

    So England losing in BD is equivalent to India losing in Eng. And that's your explanation for losing to a team that never wins tests. Now thats BD logic

    There was not a single umpire's call decision against Bangladesh in any of the innings. They were pathetic in their batting, hence the result. Also, I guess Op meant to say BD have become a powermouse. Just a typo from his end.

    reset after world cup? wow then it will become incredibly hard for Bangladesh to stay in top 10 rankings. Bangladesh also needs to look at any upcoming talent that can replace the shakib/tamim/rahim/mortaza players.

    Obviously not a powerhouse. However, they do raise their game in ODI tournaments. I saw a recent interview of Shakib, and he seemed optimistic about next year's World Cup.

    Realistically, if BD is to achieve anything in Cricket, the next world cup is pretty much it with it's core players of Tamim, Shakib, Mushy, Mahmudullah closing in on their retirement.
