So all in all, I think at least some of those scores should result in inning victories for us. Rankings may not say so, but based on form, we're clearly among the top three in Test cricket. So the question isn't whether we deserve the status, the question is whether we should still be playing lower ranked teams like the West Indies and New Zealand, or whether we should have more bilateral series featuring 5-7 Tests against the top guns.

BanglaCricket Uncle disagrees:

If we play 7 Test series vs India, England, SA, and Aus...amar mone hoi koti koti Test cricket fans in Swaziland, German Samoa, Moldova, and East Timor will start crying. I think we have a moral duty to play and lose against them than to beat teams like Australia by a double innings at a puny ground like the Gabba. Australia amader shaate parbe na, jei team parbe amader shaate like Guatemala ba mone koren Laos eder shaate khelle amader cricket onek agiye jabe bhobishote. Apni auntie ke jiggisha koren, tini aki kotha bolben.
