Desi fans are way to reactive and emotional. Bangladesh are not minnows but they're not a powerhouse either. Good at home, sub par away. Not too hard to understand, no need for the emotional highs and lows that follow a good and poor run of form.

As evidenced by his earth shaking 0 wickets across both innings, versus Rabada's half a dozen.

We shouldn't even mention Team India when we r talking about a team of Bangladesh's caliber. Its like bringing the quality of Audi into discussion when we r talking about the local tempos.


India has performed brilliantly in their recently finished SA tour. They would've easily won the series if kohli had selected a better team. Second test was there for the taking but unfortunately they failed to do so due to bad luck.


But we all saw how they hammered and humiliated SA in the ODIs, didn't we? Oh one more thing, i don't think the number of tests we have played in last couple of years have played any role in our overall development as a cricket playing nation. We played quite a number of tests at both home and away in last couple of years and it's needless to say, we have been humiliated in most of them. Only a uber low level minnow team can get thrashed the way we got thrashed in SA and NZ. We couldn't even compete in a single session leave alone winning a test or series. It was so damn embarrassing.

India performed really well in SA. Those who followed that series closely would agree with me.

So true. India fought really hard in the first two tests and could have easily won had Kohli were a little smarter about team selection.

There is a difference between losing the first test while fighting hard and a complete disgraceful surrender like BD did in WI. The first type can be attributed to getting acclimatized whereas the second type is nature of minnows.

I have a question for you Adamnsu, no one in this forum probably is as merciless as me when comes to using words to be critical of Bd. And yet, you never call me a troll. So why are you calling these folks trolls? Did they do something in the past that I am unaware of?

I have stopped actually to say anything to you after the day you stoopped so low when you changed the name of Bangladesh to show your frustration. That IMO is worse than being a troll.

Yep, it was a decent performance across the tests and ODIs, but I fail to see why it was even brought up in the first place in the context of this thread.

I don't like the term "minnows" but if it needs to be used then I will say we are minnows in Test and T20s. In ODIs, we are mediocre.

Beside Zim/Ireland, we don't start any game with any of those nine oppositions as the favorite to win.

and not everyone who criticizes our poor performance is a troll.

They also got favorable pitches in 2 of the 3 Tests.

In fact the minefield of the 3rd Test evened things out as well because it made a Bumrah as lethal as a Rabada.

YOU shouldn't mention it. Once India starts to win 70% of the ICC trophies to reflect their power, influence, and financial standing we'll have a reasonable base for discussion.

You can't even compare SL to BD. SL didn't win till the 3rd Test on tour. And that too was on a minefield where a Lakmal or Ranjith becomes as unplayable as a Gabriel or Roach. Its like a Dhaka turner where both Miraz, Ashwin, or Lyon can all turn the ball a yard.
