yeah, he was one of the few who recognized the fact how good of a team england is right now. their pace attack on their ptich in early summer is formidable for any team in the world.

Do you realise! Simon Jones just paid us a compliment guys! i.e if he meant the top 9 sides!

Chinaman- i take back my misgivings about putting up pictures of opposition players. You can post Simon Jones pic , not the other nasty Jones.

I don't approve of Simon Jones.

He does topless modelling for glossy magazines.

Thats the sort of stuff you would expect footballers to do, not respectable cricketers.

Well i dont see Jones comment really as a complement. BD is a test playing team and i dont see any complement there by comapring with a county side. I believe we are and should be much better side then county ( even though our performance in Eng wudnt support that)

As long as he is not doing bottomless modeling, I can approve of him

Fairly said! Sometimes our poor display of shot selections compares us with a club level team.

please think realisticlly. if that was the case then i dont think we should have lost our second practice match. we should have atleast drawn it.

I tink tis disgraceful dat a test side is bein judge to be as good as a county. I'd like to c these 'so called' counties take Bangladesh on in Bangladesh. Likes of Noggtinhamshire, Surrey, Lancashire wil struggle im sure, even wid der top playa's.
Really can't c how u boyz can take this as a compliment

Bangladesh is still not good enough to beat a top county team ...even if they play at Dhaka.....but be patience...we are getting there......but its way too slow improvement.....(amar mone hoy kochchhop-der shathe bangladeshi-der kono connection achhe)

I disagree........... I beleive we r betta den any county in England (i say dat based on me livin in england, and havin seen many counties play) n r capable of beating them by big margins in dhaka, chittagong.
Our problem lies with the mentality of our players....... something that needs to be sorted very quickly if we r to compete against some of da big guns.

PS... Sorry bruv man, but me did not understand any of dat stuff u wrote in bangali.......... me is a bit weak in dat dept. :bald::bald:

No matter what we believe, only the result which counts in the world. When we loose to a 2nd string sussex within 3 days, we cant blame people who level us with a county team.

ok....do u think Indian club teams are better than county team?...or smae level?....we were not even able to beat Ranji team in similar kind of condition like us...how would you expect BD to win against a top county team in Dhaka?....the game might be close...but we wont be winning by big margin......check out how many first class matches do a county player play each year comparing to a Bd player......we are not even as good as a top county team yet.

the problem lies not only in mentality...but in technic also.....if you compare any international player with a sound technic and a bd batsman very closly ....you will notice awkard body/feet movement...awkward follow through/shot/defence/left alone balls.........i found only Ashraful has a very sound and perfect technic.....i have not seen any 'awkwards' from him yet....

ps: ignore what i wrote in bengali

I dont see how his comments on bangladesh cricket was a compliment to us. I think when we're at our best, we're much better than any county team. But the problem is, we're rarely at our best. :P

Fair Comments by Simon Jones. At least he is saying Bdesh is as good as any county side, whereas Botham and Atherton were saying that Bdesh would struggle against Minor counties.
