I thought we had arrived over 6 years ago. Remember our first real Test draw not aided by the vagaries of weather? That two against a West Indies team still not far off from its peak. No asterisk there.

I waxed poetic in an article:

It may have fizzled out to a tame draw, but this match was an event of historic significance to Bangladesh and her fans - signaling our coming of age as a Test playing nation. Earning a creditable draw in West Indies' own backward. Not capitulating when the chips (and wickets) were down at 94-6. Declaring on the West Indies. Folks, we have definitely arrived.
We did arrive and then for some reason we left soon after.

Are we there yet?
