Here are my answers. btw, I have answered to this poll earlier also:
1. Should Bangladesh have been awarded Test status? Yes

2. Would Bangladesh benefit from playing in a second division of Test-playing nations? No

3. Should England pick an experimental side in the two Tests against Bangladesh? No

4. Do Test sides take matches against Bangladesh seriously enough? Yes

5. What chance have Bangladesh of winning one of the Tests against England? Slim

Sorry guys... I wana be the hardliner here. This poll is quite insulting IMO. Its simply continues the CricInfo andi-BD propaganda -thats all.

Do other teams take us seriously?
Should they form experimental team?
Do we need to be in 2nd division test cricket? (I didnt know that existed!)

What sort of mannerless questions are this?!

ok now it makes sense. so unless we carry a british passport i dont think there is any reason why we should even bother to think about these questions.

it is fair for us to make up questions like

England has never won the world cup, should they be dropped to the 2nd tier or should they stop playing cricket for sometime?

Wisden Cricketer is an English cricket magazine, not an international cricket magazine. The poll clearly states in the beginning that: "Are you an England fan? Then The Wisden Cricketer wants to know what you think about cricket."

that makes more sense. so i think it will be better if members dont put these kinds of polls here. because it makes some of us loose our temper which we ofcourse dont want to. because we all want friendly environment. thank you.

To the question #3
Should England pick an experimental side in the two Tests against Bangladesh?

My answer is, YES, pls do so. And in the process let us have a couple of draws if not a win against England. We'd like that

I wonder if the English fans know that India actually lost a ODI against us when they started experimenting.

Banal questions with equally banal answers. Cricinfo should'nt have posted them. Cheap thrills from an expensive site. IMO.

even though being the most popular sites among all the cricket websites and even though being an international site it is very unfortunate that crickinfo is a one sided site. which is full of propaganda polls. the quality is seriously low. it should have been more neutral.

On the other hand... if u look from a completely different point of view, then these sites are doing a commendable job very successfully!

Well....how so?!
You will get the point if u just take it as a fact that these sites are very very much centered on their own home-nations and the prime goal of them is to uplift the 'Media-Image' of themselves... take care of the media world of cricket, by any possible means, be it undermining all the opponents, amplifying their own home nation's microscopic success into something like a mountain... bla bla...

Well.. they are doing it with high degree of reputation and success... rn't they?

So the reality is.. like every other cricket nations, we will some day need to stand up with our 'Media-Power' as well just to take care of these. But that is after our Teams starts doing consistantly better. So stay on track people... we will need all our keyboard-power (yes, thats what these sites are showing us now!) as well some day!

well i understand that media power. but why dont they do in their own media. this is an international media. it needs to be neutral. ki ar kora. ashole amadero kichui bolar nai. jotokkhon na amra kichu kore dekhaise. asha korbe ebare shai shujog kaje lagate parbe. dannnabad.
