Well said...my thought exactly. The real question is does Bangladesh deserve this so called test status without any test for 10-11 months? If improvement is to be seen, ICC needs to stop this non-sense. I know BD didn't help their case by losing most of the matches but something got to give. The onus is also on BD and they need to step up and show fights in the limited chances they get.
