Default Close matches

I was trying to find out how many times Bangladesh lost to Zimbabwe in close matches such as the way we won against Namibia, and found only one such effort by Bangladesh against Zimbabwe.

The other matches, that I was pretty sure that they were close ones, we actually lost by 30 or 40 odd runs.

Now I am getting worried as well.

Can someone provide with examples of such close matches involving Bangladesh?

Don't worry. This Namibia team is pretty storng. They defeated Zim A 3 out 4 and if we beat them (Namibia) 3 out 3 then it would be an indication that we are better than Namibia. That should make us competetive against Zim national team. I also don't think we are playing the best possible combination in the field. After the Nam tour, Dav should figure out the best combination and hope for the best.

Default Close matches.

Jan 18 Bangladesh by 60 runs
Jan 22 Namibia won by 2 wks
Jan 25 Bangladesh won by 3 wks
Jan 26 Bangladesh won by 1 wk
Jan 29 Bangladesh by 9 runs

Results from last year. As you can see, we were not THAT much better then and Namibia has improved and yet we have managed to beat them twice. Am I happy ? NO (heck no) but I'm glad we have not lost yet. By the way, we played our full team in most of tose matches, Masri bowled in three matches and he didn't do too well.

Look at it this way, This Namibia side is far more experienced (SA league, World Cup, beating ZImbabwe A 3-1 in a series) then the ones we beat 4-1 a year ago.
