Default Rajesh Alert: BD opening batsmen

S Rajesh's latest piece has me confused beyond anything i've suffered so far.

He lists the Test opening batting combos of all teams in countries known for seaming conditions (i.e Australia, New Zealand, England, and South Africa).

Not surprisingly Bangladesh are at the bottom. However, our stats are nearly as good the other 3 subcontient teams. How did that happen??? Did Rajes mess up calculating?

Teams and opening pairs in Australia, England, New Zealand and South Africa since 2000
Teams No. of pairs Innings Inng per pair Average stand
Australia 8 128 16.00 51.26
South Africa 10 107 10.70 47.64
England 9 139 15.44 44.66
West Indies 12 61 5.08 34.71
India 10 44 4.40 31.25
New Zealand 21 85 4.05 29.62
Pakistan 12 36 3.00 29.08
Bangladesh 6 20 3.33 28.65
Sri Lanka 10 39 3.90 20.94
Zimbabwe 6 18 3.00 13.16
