I hope people start to realise that BD are not simply good enough at test level...excuses after excuses, being a global laughing stock ..I know that few ppl will see this as "controversial" but truth needs to be acknowledged and when playings tests are nor working out for BD, we need to look at other ways...now BD had all the time they needed and these defeats are not doing any good to them, but quite the contaray. People assume that more test you play, the better test team you become,,,NO ..it doesn't work like that !! In BD case, every test tour is demoralising players..Already idiots have started to question Siddon's ability!! Its so easy for them..Its about time ICC postpones BD test status for good ..and let BD play against A teams...True fans would want BD to win matches against other teams...not sink, Those of you still believe BD should continue to play tests, then you are contributing to BD's cricket Debacle..cos I tell you, they will NEVER win a test match in 10 years...the way things are going...I hope ICC postpones the test status soon..Please accept This BD DO NOT DESERVE TO PLAY TESTS!!

Brother, we just praise praise and praise...but there comes a time you need wake up to reality from wonderland....and draw some real attention...you need to be open about serious issues.....look at the records...There are good players..NOT great players. They have talent but mental attitude is non-existant. 19-20 year old players have allways played for BD and the way its going it will perpetuate...be open mate

hmm... honestly, it just feels like you are not a true follower of BD cricket. It just sounds like you have some paki or indian friends at school/work who probably got at you, and now you are just frustrated. Either that or you dont even care about seeing BD in the international arena and would rather watch india and paki matches. I dont know which it is, but I only say those kinda things rite after a match, to get my frustration off.
hmm... maybe you just watched a match on the net.... maybe you missed it live for whatever reason.
But if you are really saying it coolly, then I would request you to just not watch the test matches!:)
...coz many of us here have been waiting for quite some time to see BD get better, and YES we have seen tons and tons of improvement in test matches.
It may be slow, but it definitely is there!
There were those days when only a few players were there who "could" make a big score. and by "big" we used to talk about 50s those days. Nowadays we BD fans atleast have the courage to think of double hundreds even :). There are atleast a couple of players that every person can depend on. There are quite a few bowlers that we can depend on when we seek a breakthrough.
Yes we are getting there, and we will get there! Sorry to dissappoint you bro! :)

As myself:
Just introduce yourself as a Lankan or Indian or Pakistani if you are so embarrassed about the team. Others have aptly mentioned that while slow, improvements have been happening in the Test arena as well. If that pace is not worth bearing for you then you _could_ simply not watch :)

After watching these two tests...it was pethetic...so was all the other series!! they are NOT improving...you have no test class batsman yet you want to play test?? you havn't beaten anybody accept depleted Zims, yet you want to play test? no 4 day leauge in your country yet you want to play test? Almost all the Bangladeshi's I know including my self profoundly believe that BD' should stop playing test because there isn't any winning pattern in tests for them. They got the test status by mistake and today we can see whats happning.

There are no winning patters in their ODIs either. And yet the entire world now takes them to be a formidable ODI side. A while back in time we were loosing every single ODI we played. I think we even made a record there (People in the forum must know the exact numbers). There were people like you that time too saying similar things. I thank God that we didnt quit that time, and I hope we dont quit now. Quitters just cant be winners! Always remember that.
Patterns come only after you are an established side. We are still trying to get there. Even Dale Styne understands that we are just trying to grab talent where we can find it as it stands. And so far we have done that quite successfully. We are competing against world class opposition with players who are so young as you have agreed yourself.
Let the players gain experience. Let the time come when players have to strive to get in (and we are getting there....) rather than what it is now, that players are getting in after a good u-19 stint.
We never had any expectations to win a test match before it started, even a few years back. Now we do! Every match we start watching hoping that something might just happen. A couple of players might just click! Yes its true we dont have any consistency what so ever, but we are surely getting there.

umpires robbed us of a victory at multan...and the fatullah, st lucia, and mirpur tests were pretty close (in fact we dominated the st lucia one start to finish).

while you're checking the stats, also see how many sub-22 year olds NZ had on their squads at the time. :-D:-D

also look at biased home umpiring that all test teams got barring maybe zimbabwe and sri lanka (modern era teams).

all things being equal (which obviously they aren't), bangladesh has faired at least as well as all the major test nations in their formative years. exception being pakistan who were a better team in the 1950s then they are now :-D

On the contrary I believe test cricket is the only thing that can save Bangladesh cricket. The test game provides our young players with the types of situations that they have not faced a lot or have never faced at the local level. It's painful to watch and see them stumble and fall but there is no other way. Playing odi's and 20-20's won't result in our players becoming better. Only by playing test can our boys become strong mentaly, learn how to deal with the different tactics, and learn how to adapt and adjust. It's going to take a whole lot of time but you look at all the other top teams like S.Africa, Sri Lanka, Australia, and India they are all good test performers. So for Bangladesh to grow and become and remain a sustainable cricketing country we must play test cricket.

well if you fail to pick out any "specific games" 53 times, BD has yet to play a test match!

there have also been unfair decicions with other teams too

fine. no problem. but other teams also had biased home umpires making decisions in their favor which we have NEVER had.

then take into consideration the quality of fielding sides back in the day. our problem is staying at the wicket. that would largely be negated. and whilst we would still lose as many games, we would last much longer and possibly draw a lot of the matchs we lose (but don't lose by an innings).

if you want to compare apples, make sure you compare them to apples and not to assault rifles.

ridul bhai,

the problem lies in the head completely. its not as if we don't have the god-given ability to play. if that was case, the solution would simple, and this forum would have no reason to exist. as soon as (if) the boys learn to play with their heads instead of the deshi jodi laigga jai lottery method, we will not only be good enough for tests, but we might be too good for tests. :-D:-D

We also need to sort out the openers. They go in all guns blazin and never give the team a good start!

And for that matter, does anyone need to discuss their sample size to make you happy?

You guys (Saad and TE both) already have enough money. No need to bet to make make more money.

Enough is Enough. Now go and count your own money that you already have. Don't be a luchha. Don't look at Sayem's money.

I am wondering why Sayem is lashing out at BD so harshly about their test status.
Umpteen years ago when NZ and India started playing tests and losing very badly, there was not such media mania going on. Teams just toured each other's countries, played their matches, whether win or lose. In that period, australia, England and WI dominated test cricket, there were no ODIs, all test cricket and 3 day matches.
The rest of the world was tryng to estab lish themselves in TEst cricket and it took them years and years. No one came out and said that Test status should be taken away from these nations. They survived after being the whipping boys for years, found good players, improved on their domestic structure and started drawing and winning matches. Bangladesh is a young nation and football was more popular than cricket,
and compared to years of playing cricket to other countries, BD is comparatively new.
This young team have to be given time, miracle does not happen overnight.
They have to play more test cricket against better teams even if they get whipped. If England, australia and WI thought like this 50 years ago and did not play against NZ, India, Pakistan and SRi Lanka, then we would not have seen these countries emerging as good cricketing nations.
I feel that the writer should consider the history,culture, the domestic structure and infrastructure of BD into play when writing such harsh words against this team.
All the other countries know that BD is struggling to find their feet in Test cricket, but they know that they went down this path before, so give this team a break. It is so easy to condemn and maybe it makes you feel better.
I just learnt that NZ and England played their first test match 78 years ago.

Now, enough is enough, let them stumble and fall, they will eventually find their feet and stand straight.

Even last year, we performed so badly against SL.

The test match between the once great England is not going very well, also NZ is struggling. Maybe, you should watch this test match. Also, you should have seen the way SA thrashed New Zealand a few months back and they have been playing test matches for 78 years. england has been playing for over 100 years. WI has been playing longer than NZ and all these teams are being thrashed now., even australia and they used to whip the smaller boys who were struggling.
Give BD time, they have been in the arena for 7 years and all young, inexperienced players. IMO, SA thrashed NZ worse than they thrashed BD.
I think you should butt out from posting all these gloom and doom posts about BD, because this forum has diehard fans who know BD's true potential, but still has hopes that they will stand tall one day. There is nothing false about hope and this is what we must have. I Support this team 100 per cent, and I am not Bangladeshi.
All their FTP have been planned untill 2011 in Test cricket, so live with it whether you like it or not, in fact, dont visit this forum.

There is not a drop of truth in it. If the team is not performing to your expectation, come up with solution;

Tell me something (our own)which we are defensive & obsessed with & others are not.

You people definitely have no prior connection with cricket, to know where we were and where we are today. so you straight way start drawing parallels with other nations who are playing for centuries. There is no policy of ICC as well to axe someone's test status for peformance and it has never been talked for any other team, even if they were also strugling for long time. Some people (Foreign Nationals) suggesting only, for different reasons to suit their interests not ours.

Now I find some truthful prophets amongst our own, who are falling from the sky with axe on our own people. I know some Banglais are jealous of other bangalis prospering; you people are example of those.

We all get annoyed with our players for making mistakes and it is true that we might need a long time to come to the level of other nations, playing test; so what? We will take that time, what's your problem that you are shouting like this to axe the test status !!

I have doubt about the nationalities of the people who shout in favour of axing test status of BD. Some day you will shout for axing the nation, because we are even far more behind in other areas from most of the countries. Something like Modern 'Razakarism'

Well said brother!

i am a great supporter of BD cricket, these young cricketers are trying their best, but they seem to fail more than succeed, but yet they have the guts to carry on even after getting beaten so many times, this is what I admire about them, and I never condemn their failures. We all hope for unexpected success and then we are happy for one single success.
Some people just see the glass half empty instead of half full.
England just got thumped by NZ, bowled out for 110 runs in about 3 hrs in Test cricket, also by a team whom they played test cricket with 78 yrs ago and who they beat convincingly. England has been playing cricket for over 100 years.
Bangladesh is a new nation and football was more popular than cricket, BD had to struggle to create a cricketing infrastucture.
Many Bangladeshis living outside Bangladesh seem not to be aware of this, but they are quick to have their say and condemn at every possible occasion.
We fans get very frustrated with the team, but then it is all part of their growing pains. either we live with it, or stop following BD cricket and stop saying that Test status should be taken away.When India, NZ,Pakistan and SL struggled for years to establish themselves as cricketing nations, no one condemned them, especially their own by saying that their test status should be taken away.
Leave this to the ICC who knows exactly what is happening in BD. Their FTP is done until 2011, so give this team a break.
If forum members here hate this team so much, they should not follow this team, just forget about them.

This is an extremely slow progress. I don't think BD will be able to beat many of the A teams from other nation at first class level. When that is the reality i think what the author of this thread would make sense. You have to beat A teams comprehensively first. If this trend continues for more couple more years i think ICC will intervene.

This is slow but not extremely slow. Compare NZ, SL and Zim when they became competitive. It takes time to be equally competitive in test cricket. More over they didnt have much of one dayers to distract them. They were only focussing on test. We are also focussing on one day, 20/20 and then test. We should naturally take more time than other.

If ICC intervenes; that’s good for us. ICC is not our enemy. Our failure is also ICC's failure. So if they intervene I'm sure it will be positive intervention, which will help us to improve faster.

I dont think ICC has any plans to intervene here, maybe arrange more matches for BD.
