yes that's all well and good. Australia turn up in Bangladesh after a hard fought series victory over South Africa, including their epic victory in the 3rd test. 5 mins later they are playing on the sub continent against a minnow opponent. Ill prepared and with some complacency, Bangladesh had the better of them for a couple of days before sanity and the real Australian cricket team turned up and knocked them over.
Now that they have acclimatised to things with a bit of a wake up call....they are playing proper cricket again and the result is the true Bangladesh...a team that lets opposition tail enders scoring double hundreds.
No disrespect to Dizzy, scoring 200 at any level takes plenty of concentration and hard work, good on him but it must raise serious and obvious questions about the Tigers place in test cricket.
kurt: As a world champion team you'd not expect them to fall behind Bangladesh for two whole days _and_ suffer a scare in a chase. You wouldn't expect Warne to leak 5 runs an over and take 0/112 in the first innings. I was never for Bangladesh playing test cricket, but they've been improving with almost every game, which is more than what you can say about say West Indies.
