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 Bangladesh.

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 performed creditably in the second innings of the second and final Test to recover some pride for the NatWest series.
