Default ODI Improvement Monitor (Dec 2012)

This thread is late in coming since its been so obvious that Bangladesh have gradually gone from wretched to crap to poor to [hopefully now] an average side.

Australia from 2000 to 2007 WC can serve as the standard:

160 wins, 46 losses, bat avg = 40.16, RR = 5.40, bowl avg = 25.06 , econ = 4.68

Australia's average score batting first would be 270-7 and their opposition's 234-9. Their average-RR ratio would be = (40.16*5.4)/(25.06*4.68) = 1.849

So for Bangladesh we have the following time intervals:

Start of Test era:

0 wins, 43 losses, bat avg = 18.46, RR = 3.84, bowl avg = 48.20, econ = 5.32
ratio = 0.276

From First Win of Test Era to 2007 WC (6 wins against G8 teams**):

33 wins, 43 losses, bat avg = 24.76, RR = 4.38, bowl avg = 29.55 , econ = 4.59
ratio = 0.800

Ashraful-Shakib-Siddons Era (3 wins vs G8 teams):

21 wins, 51 losses, bat avg = 25.42, RR = 4.60, bowl avg = 35.09, econ = 5.27
ratio = 0.632

Since the NZ TigerWash (10 wins vs G8 teams):

17 wins, 17 losses, bat avg = 27.52, RR = 4.60, bowl avg, = 27.64, econ = 4.79
ratio = 0.956




** The early 2004 ZIM team counts as a "G8" side since they were ranked ahead of us and had Streak, G Flower, S Ervine, and a number of other first choice players.
