That's a ridiculous claim! I doubt even the best teams in world cricket would dare to do that against BD in BD, esp after the recent Asia cup performance and the 4-0 NZ whitewash!!! Is it really worth taking the risk of losing a series to a lower ranked team that'll be etched in history forever and surrender bragging rights?

I can understand your frustration man! You guys had the best team in the 70s and 80s, but you have to come to the realization that WI are world beaters no more (in ODIs and Tests), and will have to work really hard to get back to the top.
