Andrew Miller rues a somewhat lost decade for Bangladesh Test cricket:
[The ICC] might well have decided that a ten-year development programme and a November 2010 promotion was a more realistic date for which to aim.
Had they done so, they might well have encountered a battle-hardened squad boasting the sort of world-class players that Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan have become, as well as a cast of reliable sidekicks such as the wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim, upon whom expectations can be heaped without any fear that he will crack.
Some of the blame has to go to India, Miller says. The BCCI lunged for an extra vote for the Asia Test bloc, but then didn’t do all that much to help Bangladesh develop its cricket. Awful stuff.
