when BD received test status they didn't deserve it, they hadn't done too much in the ODI game and had no FC competition....but even though results aren't that different comparing now to then, there is a huge difference in the quality of player BD now produces. back in the early days of test stauts and even a few years ago the normal sort of average for a BD batsman in tests was between 20-25. now tamim is averaging 38, shakib in the mid 30s, guys like mushy and riyad are close to 30. the quality is better and will improve more with anamul and mominul coming in, shuvagata could be quite decent to.
