i don't think that ireland or zimbabwe will pose us a problem. they will get smashed in BD, and in their home turfs, would win the odd 4 day match.

our players have somehow managed to get beyond the pre-2003 hump. they can now beat minnows they way they should. that have that psychological mind set. i mean if sakib is taking 5 fers in south african green tops, what would he do to zimbabwe or ireland even if the track has no turn? its not like he's a turner of the ball anyways.

the batsman can all bash minnows pretty much. even ash would enjoy the run fest. after average below 20 against minnows for the first 6 years of his career. he's turned it up since 2006 kenya tour. he averages about 50 in ODIs against non-test nations in the past 2 and half years. add in tamim, junaid, raqib, and rahim. i don't think the associates could handle us for more than a few sessions.
