So we can stake a legitimate claim to being #7 ranked. In ODIs I think its time to say that we're in the F9.

I've expanded the study to include Zimbabwe: BD, WI, NZ, ZIM in all matches v G8

Bangladesh have the best Win % at 28.57 %. We also have the best W-L ration at 0.40 and the highest batting average, although the 2nd lowest run rate!
WI win % = 25 %
NZ = 21.62 %
ZIM = 19.23% (but 3 of those were against second string India and Sri Lanka sides so 7.69 %).

In home games:;type=team

WI are the best, and we are better than NZ and ZIM (again factoring out 2nd string wins).

BD, WI, NZ, ZIM in away matches v G8 sides

All teams have just one win, but Bangladesh has played by far the least number of away games, so we have the best win %. Our batting average and run rate are higher only than Zimbabwe's...but as a mark of consistency, we have the highest low score (186) and lowest high score (250).
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.
