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: http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/eng...ults;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).
