Since the start of the decade Bangladesh has played more games than New Zealand or West Indies. They have won overall 1 less game than both of them but lost a few more. Their win percentage isn’t that different from either team.


What I noticed after the Asia Cup is that Bangladesh has won more matches against the top 8 teams (9) than New Zealand or West Indies (7 each). Our win percentage against the top 8 teams has been better than West Indies and marginally lower than New Zealand.

Bangladesh won 2 against England, 1 against India, 4 against New Zealand, 1 against Sri Lanka and 1 against West Indies. New Zealand won 2 against Australia, 1 against India, 3 against Pakistan and 1 against South Africa. West Indies won 2 against Australia, 3 against India and 2 against Pakistan.


It is against lower ranked opposition that Bangladesh has been disappointing against. Bangladesh have won a total of 8 matches out of 14 against lower ranked opposition. Yet West Indies have been ruthless, winning 11 out of 13. New Zealand has done well too, barring that famous series in Bangladesh, have won 11 out of 16 matches.


In total Bangladesh lost 4 matches against Zimbabwe and 1 each against Ireland and Netherlands. New Zealand lost 4 against Bangladesh and 1 against Zimbabwe. West Indies lost 1 against Bangladesh and 1 against Zimbabwe. Neither New Zealand or West Indies lost matches against associate teams, Bangladesh lost 2.


At present both New Zealand and West Indies have 86 points and Bangladesh have 67. If Bangladesh won all the matches against lower ranked opposition I reckon Bangladesh would have around 75 points, which isn’t too far from them. If Bangladesh is serious about becoming a top 8 team then it has to be ruthless against lower ranked teams.


Bangladesh has more players score over 1,000 runs than New Zealand or West Indies. The 4 players are: Shakib al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes and Mushfiqur Rahim, New Zealand have 3 players they are: Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum. West Indies have 1 player and surprisingly it is Kieron Pollard who normally bats at No. 6.


Bangladesh also has more bowlers take 50 wickets than New Zealand or West Indies. The 3 Bangladesh players are: Shakib al Hasan, Abdur Razzak and Shafiul Islam.West Indies have 1 player which is Kemar Roach, but New Zealand don't have any.


The main reason I decided to do this was to highlight the fact that Bangladesh beat more top 8 teams this decade than New Zealand and West Indies so we have something to be positive about despite losing the final.

I will try and update the table in the coming months and years.
