Default Bangladesh's best victory?

There are two victories that stand out for me, the one against Australia and the one against India in WC '07. I feel today's win against England is better than those two victories.

What made those victories special:

Cardiff, vs Australia: It was against Australia, the Number 1 team, and Bangladesh were still perceived as minnows then.

Port of Spain, vs India. It was the world cup. Comments by Indian players assuming they would reach the second round by pushing over Bangladesh.Being the main reason for ending India's WC hopes.

But today's victory happened after the nation was demoralized. They needed to win back the faith and start believing in the team. Also, they were out of the match after 8 wickets. To win from that situation where even many Bangladeshi fans had given up hopes, to win after the darkest days in Bangladesh's cricket, in my opinion, makes it the best victory so far.
