We are even struggling with our test status ... I don't even dare to think abt other teams. But I put Kenya though cz they r much stronger than Holland and even Kenya is a big competitor for us.

thats for ODIs.

Holland would be better than Kenya in tests as their batsman can hold on to bat for a full 90 overs and can bowl out the opposition twice as their bowlers maintain a good line and length. They also have great fielding.

Kenya are much better than Holland in ODIs as they have aggression which is missing in Holland.

Default Want to know one thing?

I have thought about the same thing about Bangladesh.

We don't have the agression - but our batsman used to be more patient and our bowlers used to be like Holland's.

But now look at us. We are caught between being a test team and a one day team. That is, we are nowhere.

For all I know - that could all change tomorrow vs Kenya.

Yup. BD used to score like 99/9 in 50 overs. Always seemed the test type.

Default Golla

That's why we got rid of Golla, now, we can't even play 40 overs in ODIs. How mazing is that ? Not that one man can change all that but here is the thing, if, one of the openers manager to stand their ground, it's not hard to get cloe to 200, which we should do in pretty much every single match, let it be test or ODI. IN the Test, we need to start to play atleast 90 overs per innings. No two minds about it.
