It's not a matter of pride. If the info is wrong, they should correct it. Did you report the error to them? All the e-mails I have sent them so far, have been properly replied. Errors/complaints have been acknowledged and corrected with apology too. I doubt they intentionally made this mistake. It's a mistake nonetheless, and has to be corrected.

Edit: What's the URL btw?

The article is correct, there is nothing wrong with it. It says ..

Apart from the Hong Kong game, they have only won one limited overs international since the 1999 World Cup

notice it says apart from the Hong Kong game - and that was the win over Zimbabwe
