It's a two street Malky. One then by same logical approach go ahead and prove that many games against Australia were 'rigged'.

If it was a fix. It was Pakistani cricketer who took the bung. I was told by one of the pakistani business man the day before to put some money on Bangladesh on 50/1, but on those days I was not a betting man. I asked why he did not put a bet himself, he told me he is a nationalist but does not mind if I put it on. This is not BS.

The Afro-Asia bloc, which also includes Zimbabwe and South Africa, makes up six of the 10 so-called Test-playing nations and dominates the International Cricket Council, recently destroying the ICC presidential electoral system to block the nomination of John Howard for president.

Vengeance? Surely!

On the field, Bangladesh has been a disgrace as a Test-playing nation, with no improvement over a decade.

And losing matches means disgracing cricket? What about taking drug(Warne), Racism, involving in match fixing(Warne and M. Waugh)? Bringing real politics in cricket by John howard(Zimbabwe matter)?

Thank you for putting it very precisely. Although they would not want to keep count of the many dirty tricks the Aussies pull each and every match. They would lose count.

exactly, even leaving aside the sydney test there are a number of matches that come to my mind. do you remember the one in the 1999 tour to australia where gilchrist led aus to victory chasing 360 odd with 6 wkts down ?
it never felt like pak bowlers were bowling at their 100%.

typical condescending aussie, pointing fingers at other 'lesser' people, at least we do not have the hypocrisy of unfairly lording over others and claim that to be a period of good and fair administration, all in the same sentence.

Sheitai toh. If BD-Pak game[99] was fixed, then the final was fixed as well. So the start of Australia's top flight was also a result of corruption. Su** on that *the writer*
PS: I live in Aus, and I have seen a change in the point of view recently. Loads of Aussies now know Shakib, Tamim and really like their playing styles.

The author is pissed cuz his team barely drew the test series against pakistan 1-1, and probably it'll be revealed soon had pak players not gotten involved in spot fixing aus would've lost the other match too and gone down 0-2.

They are belittling us because we lost 59 of our 68 tests. Every Tom, Dick and Harry would do likewise.

There are indisputable evidence that Cardiff match was fixed. Everyone, including Ponting, in the team should get a lifetime ban. CA should be dismantled for not being able to prevent it. It should be taken over by ICC.

A lot of Western ( Read : white ) journalists to this date has a hard time accepting the shift of power base to the Sub-continent ( Read : India )from their established antiquated world view. They look at BD as nothing but an extra voting card in the Asian bloc. Taking on India is much harder, because of the economic might and so many of their players earning bread there, so beat up on the baby to send a message to the parents indirectly. In time, reality will set in, though it might be never for a few, and from time to time, we will encounter Billy Bobs' with a pen to malign us at every other opportunity. When we do start answering them on the field, I will assure you, some of the very lot will find a new excuse with us. We will have to wait out for the newer generation of writers, or at the very least, hopefully old age and father time will catch up with those few.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we all know Shane Warne was paid off to go off with a sore shoulder, with figures of 0-105 at Dhaka.

Thats quite ironic.....Australia's birth was based on finding a dumping ground for corrupt criminals.

Atleast a Bangladeshi yet to be proven to involved with taking bribes.

People, no need to get all worked up about some op-ed piece in some no-name newspaper from halfway around the world!

The bottom line is that our birth as a test nation -- corrupt or not -- took place and cannot be undone. This is a fact. It follows from the arrow of time. What is done cannot be undone. It follows from the second law of thermodynamics.

What I'm saying is this: Ain't no tabloid journo gonna take test status away from us.

Better to focus on improving our cricket than to dwell on what others are saying about us. We've got to develop a thicker skin, people. Why so sensitive!?!
