So does that mean Sri Lanka is worse than West Indies?

Bangladesh will become a better team when they start to control themselves,they always allow "ambition to overrule their judgement".
Pakistan used to be the same,and from what I heard and read,West Indians used to be the same.

Bangladesh at the moment,will more than likely beat "West Indies Barbados" lol

Bangladesh rise could be attributed to them having one of the best all-rounders in the game today in Shakib, the WI have no player of that stature at the moment who could swing a game in their favor.

The consolation for Mindies fans is that Courtney Walsh is Bangladesh's bowling coach..

Sri Lanka trying hard to join us in the bottom half.

The test rankings. ...

7) Sri Lanka 90
8 ) west indies 69
9) Bangladesh 66

They are not far away from us.

There is a de facto two tier system already in test cricket.

The top six....

India
Australia
South Africa
England
Pakistan
New Zealand

The bottom four. ....

Sri Lanka
West indies
Bangladesh
Zimbabwe

Give Afghanistan and Ireland test status and formalise the two tier system. The bottom teams can give the top six a fight at home only so IMHO that's how our fixtures should be in future. Play home and away against the bottom six and play at home only against the top six.

At this moment, Bangladesh can easily beat WI in both Test and ODI. Without the stars, and judging by the performance against England, Afghanistan will give us a run.

Folks need to understand this.

You can say so if you are confident of beating SL in SL

I keep telling you all that WI FC players have favourable stats against Bang.

Players like Kraigg, Kirk Edwards,Best, Fidel...

Guys with express pace like Gabriel, Joseph and Leveridge would do well against Bang and patient batsmen who have faced Pak,Sri and Ind spin like Kraigg,Hope, Carter and guys like Ambris would do well...hell Lewis and Powell would parade!

Sri Lanka is not as strong as we think with our A teams doing quite well against them in Sri Lanka.

WI would do well to expose players like Cornwall, Leveridge and many others against Bang.

After the Pak series WI could well be in 9th ranking in tests for the first time...

Remember Sri Lanka would be hard pressed to beat WI in the WI.

WI need to start beating Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka in order to rise up the ratings....they will continue to beat Bang home and away...unless the selectors pick a crap team void of genuine pace bowlers and Bishoo.

I remember a time When the Asian countries used to struggle in the WI. Then the wickets were too quick for the subcontinent teams to cope up with.

We might have to use the fastest wickets against the Asian teams.

Bang fraid genuine pace...When Tino Best avgs 14.33 in Bang with 12 wickets with two 5fers (6/71) and an economy rate of 2.98, Fidel Edwards 28.60 in Bang with 15 wickets with two 5fers (6/90)....Roach overall avg 20.40 with 25 wickets (6/4cool what does that tell you?

Gabriel, Joseph and Leveridge would parade against Bang!


And don't talk about Bishoo! His overall stats vs Bang reads avg 21.18 with 11 wickets with one 5fer (5.90)

WI has won all the matches when the stars were playing except for one match in 2004 which was drawn.

True. Long time ago. Even today if we have Gayle's and fidels in our team we would be many times better than what we put on field today.
