Yeah, if Bangladesh got bundled for 60, everyone would be up ours and saying we need immediate demotion. NZ does it, no one gives a ****.
and it's true that we should play teams around us and in conditions that will not expose us hopelessly. As you said, it's a good time to play WI/NZ/ZIM. Invite teams like Sri Lanka, Pakistan at home. Get a few good results going, then go overseas and play these teams, and eventually, in 10ish years, go to Australia and challenge them for a series.
