1. Zim are the world's worst team in Tests and ODI from the full-time cricket nations of the world, FACT
2. Zim are considered minnows because they have had more than six years of losing Test status, FACT and were effectively in the same level as Ireland and NL. BD has never lost Test status
3. Alan Butcher, head coach, said Ireland outplayed and are a far better side than ZIM when they last played each other in the WC warm up. Niall O'Brien said in a press interview that Ireland viewed Zimbabwe as the 'easiset pickings' in relative terms against the full-time teams, FACT. This was as recent as February
Whilst ZIM has enjoyed a few small gains against a very poor BD team, let's get this into perspective
