but that's not the point. it's really interesting (at least to me) to see how the smaller nations are shaping up for the battle of the associates. looks like most of them are doing pretty good.

PNG used to beat Bangladesh onetime.
Sad to see they are still in the same dark-hole and going further down!!

I cannot remember they beat BD in any ICC games. We played them several time I think. I can remember one of their player used to play cricket with knee size trouser (there was an article in Bichitra about this).

Namibia Aside from Scotland, are probably planning the most extensive preparations. Beat Zimbabwe A 2-0 with one washed out in their recent one-day series. An MCC team has just arrived, to play one three-day and two one-day matches against the Namibian national side before heading to Uganda. Namibia themselves travel to Nairobi shortly to play Kenya in their Intercontinental Cup match and a one-dayer, before playing the South African provincial team North West Dragons at the end of March. Pakistan A will tour Namibia from April 21 to May 2, before Namibia travel to Uganda for the Intercontinental Cup as well as some one-day games. Will play three practice matches in England, followed by two in Ireland.



Whew-that is preparation indeed! Like to see BD A playing Scotland, Kenya or this team regularly:) Especially Scotland who are ready to beat Kenya, i feel...

I guess, I remember a match where Bangladesh was lost to PNG. I will look for it and post it here if I can find it.

OK..I found the match where PNG beat Bangladesh.
It was in 1982 ICC Trophy at Third-place play off match.
Scorecard: PNG Beat Bangladesh by 3 wickets (http://plus.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/WORLD_CUPS/ICCT82/ICCT-MATCHES/BDESH_PNG_ICCT-CONS_09JUL1982.html)

Thanks to Zunaid for his info too.

Yeah I was wondering about that myself. Don't remember PNG ever beating Bangladesh.

well maybe <i>they</i> didn't, but many other worthless teams did. :(
