Bangladesh have potential to Test tourists, says Athers

We expected no less than a 3-0 one-day scoreline to England and that's what transpired, with the tourists rounding matters off with a resounding victory in Chittagong.

In the grand scheme of things this result won't reverberate around the game.

But equally people would be wrong to be dismissive and say 'England have only beaten Bangladesh'.

The home side had their moments in all three games - the problem was there simply weren't enough of them.

Bangladesh are a young squad and at times their inexperience and naivety stopped them taking advantage when they could have exploited a weakness.

I've no doubt that will change with time and as the likes of Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan develop.

There is an undoubted passion for cricket in Bangladesh, an enthusiasm and level of interest that can only bode well for the future.

With such fervour amongst a population of upwards of 150 million, there should be no shortage of talent to choose from in the years ahead.
