Default Are Bangladesh the Worst Team Ever?

The most stunning aspect of South Africa's win at The Oval is that they won a Test match against arguably the best bowling attack in the world losing just two wickets. Last season, this attack had decimated India's much-hyped batting line-up, averaging 25.55 runs per wicket over four matches. Against South Africa in this game, they took two wickets for 637 runs, an average of 318.50 runs per wicket. England's batsmen, on the other hand, averaged 31.25 in the match. The difference of 287.25 is the highest in a Test which has produced a result, which makes this the most comprehensive win ever.
From S Rajesh on the recently concluded SA-England match. Funny, in 70+ matches spanning 12 years Bangladesh have never collapsed like this. And we've played against some pretty decent teams including 4 tests against [almost] this very SA side.
