you have to consider that SL actually earned their Test status when they got it. thats why they were better than we are.

we didn't even have a first class comptetition before getting test status. lets not forget that often our players made their FC debut in a Test match.

all things equal, bangladesh has developed much quicker than other nations. again with all equal variables. had we played 3 day tests like india we would have also drawn a good number forget that they often played 120 overs a day. players were far less athletic and coupled with the extra overs, they would would bowling and fielding utter crap.

i am not saying that we are as good as other teams were, but the question is why are we poorer. lack of organizational skill in our management, poor umpiring, and different era are all things that have made us look far inferior.
