i would not call this a success tour team-wise. Collectively, to have a successful BD tour, a better showing in the Tests was really necessary. Also consistent performance in the ODIs would also indicate that the tour was a collective success.

Instead, several individual performances have come to the surface, winning accolades from many. Aftab's 82 in the 2nd Test and priceless knock in the win against Australia, Ashraful's knocks in the ODIs (except the first one), Mashrafe's bowling, Abir's comeback, Javed's solid presence in the top order are almost all the positives that could be drawn from this tour.

Let's face it, the team hasnt performed collectively and consistently. Rather, those individual feats have been more satisfying.
