Does Bangladesh deserve to play T20?

I was being sarcastic ...

thanks to BBC for doing an anti jinx campaign for us here. We will win the first Test and shut them up.

No test status wont hurt BD cricket much, since we aint playing it regularly neway. I'll be happy to see BD sneaked out from whitewash in coming series.

Wow, alot of very pissed off bangla fans here. I am sorry if creating this thread has caused soo much tention among you guys but I thought it was a topic worth discussion and this is the appropriate forum. If the need be then you can PM a mod and let them delete this thread if you all want that. Again my humble apologies if I offended anyone by posting this topic.

As myself: Dman, you will piss off more people by calling us Bangla fans. You wouldn't us to start referring you to as West fans right? Call us Tigers, Bangladesh, BD - bangla fan means I'm a fan of the language Bengali and that applies to folks in Kolkata as well

As mod: It's a fair question you post, though ideally you should preface it with your own stance and explanation. You don't have to delete the thread and you certainly have not violated any forum rules. You should however anticipate that a lot of Tigers fans are just tired of the question.

Fair enough RazabQ, however I do have one issue with the "bangla fans" naming. If you don't want people to call you "bangla fans" on this internet message board don't you think it is appropriate that the name of the website not be BANGLAcricket.com?

when BD received test status they didn't deserve it, they hadn't done too much in the ODI game and had no FC competition....but even though results aren't that different comparing now to then, there is a huge difference in the quality of player BD now produces. back in the early days of test stauts and even a few years ago the normal sort of average for a BD batsman in tests was between 20-25. now tamim is averaging 38, shakib in the mid 30s, guys like mushy and riyad are close to 30. the quality is better and will improve more with anamul and mominul coming in, shuvagata could be quite decent to.

What's wrong with Bangla fans if usage of the term doesn't carry malicious intent/have a racist background? Yo yo yo waddup Bangies?

I don't even think about any of that stuff when I say "bangla fans". I don't even thinks it even means that.

Im not sure whether we do deserve the test status but the way our players go out onto the field it looks as if they are enjoying a game of golf. Where is the cheering and jeering from the players themselves? Where is the attitude? Where is the enthusiasm?

For everyone's sake, play like men. This is test cricket, not picnic T20 cricket

Do the selectors deserve their jobs, is a better question.

In the early days Bangladesh were hopeless. Completely and utterly. That is not the case anymore. In fact the main reason for Bangladesh's poor record in the last 2-3 years is the fact that they don't play test cricket enough. So the argument that test status should be taken away is ludicrous. They barely have test status as it is, and that is entirely the problem.

Bangladesh has big fanbase and good market in cricket.

ICC would be stupid to get rid of our Test staus.

Infact they should be adding more teams to stop Test from dying.

Well said...my thought exactly. The real question is does Bangladesh deserve this so called test status without any test for 10-11 months? If improvement is to be seen, ICC needs to stop this non-sense. I know BD didn't help their case by losing most of the matches but something got to give. The onus is also on BD and they need to step up and show fights in the limited chances they get.

That's the bottom line really.

Does the West Indies bowling attack deserve Test status?

Agreed - they were rushed in, and now when they have a decent unit, they don't get tests at all. Sigh.

If you look at the current Aussie and SA bowling units, given the form that our batsmen are in, we should be able to post 600+ scores against them on a consistent basis. There are few in those countries who can bat the way Naeem Islam batted or take the battle to our spinners. So all in all, I think at least some of those scores should result in inning victories for us. Rankings may not say so, but based on form, we're clearly among the top three in Test cricket. So the question isn't whether we deserve the status, the question is whether we should still be playing lower ranked teams like the West Indies and New Zealand, or whether we should have more bilateral series featuring 5-7 Tests against the top guns.
