    Most Embarrassing Home Defeat Ever in Test Cricket?

    This defeat by Bangladesh has to be the worst ever defeat in modern day cricket. What makes it worse is that it was on their home deck, and their two greatest batsmen (Shakib and Mushfiq) were also playing.

    300/4 declared by Pakistan after losing 2 and a half days due to rain and bad light.

    And then Bangladesh lose 20 wickets for 291 runs in a space of 117 overs!!

    I dont think I have ever seen such an abysmal home performance in my life! What is the point of spending so much on coaching staff if this is the performance you will produce at home??

    I agree.

    Bangladesh cricket board from top to bottom needs a complete overhaul. Every man needs to be sacked!

    I can see signs of a deadly cancer which needs an immediate treatment.

    Yeah its arguably the worst.

    The only other defeats I can think of that come close are the beatings that Australia gave us in the UAE which was technically a home game for us.

    Undoubtedly the most embarassing loss, especially in this era of home dominance of teams. But here is another one by a major cricket nation at their home about 20 years ago.

    England vs India, 2002, Headingley

    India 628/8 dec

    Rahul Dravid 148
    Sachin Tendulkar 193
    Saurav Ganguly 128

    ENG 273 and 309

    India won by an innings and 48 runs

    It is pretty bad for Bangladesh but I think us beating India in Bangalore 2005 was a bigger humiliation and embarrassment. A bowling attack of Sami, Razzaq, Kaneria, Arshad Khan and Afridi beat the famed ATG batting line up of Sehwag, Sachin, Laxman, Ganguly, Dravid at home.

    Without sounding harsh, I think it is one of the worst home test loss I have seen or atleast in some time. Losing record 13 wickets on the last day after that horrible 4th day where BD lost 7 wickets.

    Pakistan was 180 odd at the end of day 3 due to rain and bad light taking away most of the match and then losing the match by an innings from there was shocking

    Credit goes to Pakistan as well obviously for bowling brilliantly and especially Sajid Khan with that herculean effort.

    Bangladesh is a joke team in test arena..
    They shouldn't be taken seriously..
    As an indian, i can't remember any embarrassing test losses at home but i can recall an ODI match against South Africa, where their 3 batsman scored centuries and set target above 400. We only manage to score somewhat 250.
    Hard to forget that match.

    Bangladesh played poorly in first innings. I saw the highlights and they kept throwing away the wickets. They fought better in the second innings.

    Congratulations to Pakistan, but no need for making fun of a losing side. Show some class and bigger heart.

    That was a legitimate test match win between 2 equally matched sides. In that series India won a game, and another was drawn.

    Don't drag Ind/Pak to the level of Bangladesh please.


    Have some Sehwag in your life.

    I dont think the purpose of this thread is to make fun of someone's misfortune, but simply to call a spade a spade. This was an embarrassingly poor home defeat! They simply had to survive 1 and a half days with 20 wickets in hand

    Very poor appraisal.This is Bangladesh we are talking about, not Australia. They have no depth. Only one decent player (shakib). Itís no surprise. Pak should be ashamed that bang took so much effort to beat. Afghan and Ireland are better than bang. Bang are not a top 10 team. They are on par with Nepal and UAE.

    It has to be up there.

    Future of BD cricket is not looking bright. They are still reliant on Shakib, Mushfiq, and Mahmudullah. Youngsters aren't stepping up.

    I hate punching down and don't like making fun of the underdogs. But that holds true for teams like Ireland, Afghanistan, etc., who are the genuine underdogs.

    But Bangladesh has been playing cricket for a long time, longer than any Afghan knew what cricket even was. I don't think we need to bash Bangladesh, but at some point, the questions need to be asked why they have not progressed at all like other teams. They have a better sporting infrastructure than the likes of Afghanistan, a far better economy and is an immeasurably more stable country, still they're underachieving in the international stage so much, which is frustrating even for normal cricket fans. In a few years, I think we'll have Nepal progressing to where Ireland, etc., is now, and Bangladesh would start feeling the heat even within asia with Afghanistan and Nepal giving competition, if BD cricket remains stagnant.

    Bangladesh cricket needs a total revamp.

    Some of the younger players need to step up.

    Hiring foreign coaches isnít the solution but looking at local coaches to develop youth will help.

    Also PK can help if Bangladesh can stop lifting Indiaís 🎳.

    Pakistan v Aus in UAE was probably the most embarrasing defeat of all, But it was against a great side and Pakistan have had their share of great victories to balance the equation.

    This defeat for Bangladesh is not as embarrasing as Pakistan's. But it is not far off.

    That's why as a Pakistani fan I'm not excited about this win.

    Because it came against an atrocious batting performance by the bengalis .

    Sajid khan imo will have tougher tests to face , no way I'm sold on him , nauman ali couldn't even perform against this team so he needs to be discarded if yasir shah was playing he would have had about 30 wickets in these 2 test matches

    Not the worst given that it is Bangladesh and they are perfectly capable of it. What probably would hurt them was this was not a 5 day test technically. 3 day. So escaping with a draw was not an impossible thing. Yet they couldn't.

    Well India drew england I think in 2007 1-1. In the third test, Shaun Udal led them to victory in Mumbai!!! That was pretty embarrasing for how india batted in that 4th innings

    Here it is. A real comedy of a innings. Irfan Pathan to open. Kumble comes in as night watchmen. Sehwag at 7. Shaun Udal 4-14. Dhoni trying the same shot after skying one and the fielders missing it.

    What makes this defeat even more embarrassing is the fact that Bangladesh refused to bowl just spinners in the 3rd session of Day 1 thus umpires calling of the play in day 1 due to bad light.

    They were happy with the 4 points even before the match had started!

    Yes, Day one was called off right before the 3rd session because the umpires asked Bangladesh to only bowl spinners with the light reducing. However, the captain disagreed and wanted to continue with pace and the umpires had no choice but to call bad light.

    omg, no wonder the bengali commies were whining when Shaheen started bowling during the third session of day 5 . The commies were like look Shaheen is gonna bowl now and with the light problem existing the play should be called off. THe umpire will have a word with him after the first ball is delivered.

    Ball gets delivered, Umpire was least bothered. I went on cricinfo to see what was the actual situation and over they said the sun has come out and the light is actually out there.

    If I was a Bangladeshi cricket fan I'd be fuming about that performance in the 2nd Test.

    So much time lost yet they still lose.

    Apart from a couple of players, their team lacks a backbone.

    Aus losing the Gabba test to a second string India earlier this year was pretty embarrassing especially considering the trash talk Paine had been doing regarding seeing them at gabba.

    Aus losing the test to SA in 2016 that led to their CS stepping down immediately was quite embarrassing.

    India losing to Aus in that 12/70 Steve O Keefe test.

    Ban losing to second string WI successfully chasing 390 something.

    NZ lost quite woefully in the aftermath of Ross Taylor's sacking as captain.

    This was really embarrassing. Pakistan essentially won the match in 2 days and a few sessions.

    On top of that the way that Bangladesh batted was especially embarrassing. They were scared of the pitch and the bowling. And watching their approach in trying to avoid the follow-on was just laughable.

    Pakistan bowled well, sure and the pitch had a lot in it, but more than that Bangladesh just played some shockingly poor cricket.

    I can't think of many teams that would lose 13 wickets in less than a day.

    None of these defeats were embarrassing. Because for one thing the entire test matches weren't 8 sessions long.

    Australia hammered India in the Pune test. It was comprehensive by 300+ runs. But even that test match had four innings and finished on the fourth day I think.

    The rest of these matches all featured one team outplaying the other. But it wasn't like the other side played like a school team or folded like a pack of cards. If anything they were closely fought matches.

    NZ lost quite woefully in the aftermath of Ross Taylor's sacking as captain.
    The Gabba defeat wasn’t embarrassing, it was just brilliant by India!

    I don’t see Pakistanis celebrating hard into the night for this victory against Bangladesh. They may be all chilling in someone’s room and bantering about how pathetic the Bangladeshis were. They have two players in this side who think they are on the same level as Kohli and Sharma when it comes to stature and pressuring their boards into giving in to their demands.

    Mushfiq is allowed to skip the Pakistan tour due to personal issues with Pakistan whilst Shakib has been holding his board to ransom for God knows how long!

    And then Bangladesh lose 20 wickets for 291 runs in a space of 117 overs!!

    I dont think I have ever seen such an abysmal home performance in my life! What is the point of spending so much on coaching staff if this is the performance you will produce at home??

    The rest of these matches all featured one team outplaying the other. But it wasn't like the other side played like a school team or folded like a pack of cards. If anything they were closely fought matches.
    +1

    One team outplaying the other is not really embarrassing.

    I didn't compare it to the BD defeat yesterday. This defeat is far more humiliating for Bangladesh. But that was also an embarassing loss at home for England with a margin of an inning and I remember that test very well so mentioned that.

    Here it is. A real comedy of a innings. Irfan Pathan to open. Kumble comes in as night watchmen. Sehwag at 7. Shaun Udal 4-14. Dhoni trying the same shot after skying one and the fielders missing it.
    Sehwag was injured so he can't bat before the falling of fifth wicket .
    I don't know why Pathan opened, Dravid should have opened.
    We played with three seamers on Mumbai deck, VVS was dropped by great captain Dravid for in favor of Yuvraj, Kaif who made 91 was also dropped by Dravid.
    Dravid team selection and playing three pacers on that wicket was blunder.
    Pathan shouldn't have played, instead vvs kaif Or Vvs and Yuvi( for fifth bowling option) should have played.

    Nah, this should be more apt for top 8 tests teams that have a rich cricketing history in this format.

    BD always loses regardless of form, pitch, country, players etc etc so they are always hitting new lows and no one would bat an eye to this loss or remember this in the future.

    Not much cricket happened in the last 2 years due to COVID.

    They won a Test against Zimbabwe, lost 2 against West Indies, and lost 2 against Pakistan (at home).

    Eh, England just got outplayed. In Pak-Bangladesh match, 2.5 days were washed out due to rain. And Bangladesh had 2 of their greatest players ever. You would expect a team to draw a test at home after playing for just 2.5 days. An innings defeat in 2.5 day at home is something I can't describe.

    Across 2 innings, Pakistan was able to hold out for a total of 55.4 overs, while Bangladesh's total was 116.4 overs, more than twice Pakistan's resistance. The Test was over in 2 days. I would say Bangladesh's performance was better.

    That's the player culture in Bangladesh and it's been like that for quite long. The fans make their players untouchable in Bangladesh. Good performances are hailed as great performances and players are made to feel like superheroes. Wasim Akram during the wt20 pointed out how both Liton and mushfiq aren't keen to keep the wicket if they are made to bat in the top order.

    Whatever you may think about Kohli or Sharma, but they have been thorough professionals when it comes to international cricket and apart from the Aus test series earlier this year(which had a valid excuse), none of them pick and chose series in international cricket.

    Yeah. But, to be fair, that was in 2006 (Bangladesh were new to Test cricket then).

    No excuse for this type of performance now.
