Bangladesh in England, May-June 2005
Complete coverage of Bangladesh on their maiden away tour of England.
True to captain Habibul Bashar's words, this has been a tough tour for
Test series versus England
Before the 2-Test series in English Bangladesh played three tour matches,
drawing with British Universties, losing by an innings to Sussex and then
drawing the final match with Northamptonshire.
They lost the 2 Tests predictably - both innings defeats. However, Bangladesh

to recover some pride for the NatWest series.
