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.
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
