500 is hard!
Even on a flat track, against a mediocre bowling attack, with a 224-0 start, we barely made 500, that too lucky with Rubel's cameo getting full credits.
Puts into perspective the 638 we scored in SL, 556 vs WI, and 501 vs NZ.
It ain't easy gettin 500 regardless of the pitch or opposition.
Bangladesh is a stronger team with Shakib al Hasan.
