That is not a criticism, it is a starting point to realising where the issues might be with local coaching.
The size of the population does not mean much. It's the % of the population that actually play the game or have access to the facility needed. All these countries you mentioned are financially well off with deeply rooted infra-structure. Bangladesh is nowheere close to them in terms of interested players with access to enough facility to turn them into success even domestically; needless to internationally.
