Its really gud to c bangladesh no longer amongst the minnows. they have world class spinners lyk rafique, saquib and razzak which can break any batting order. they now just need to improve their batting and together as a team prove their consistency and if they do so in few years tym they r going to be a cricketing powerhouse

It is good to see the above 5 countries do well and they should try to get into the one day arena as automatic choices to play the World Cup just like Kenya and Bangladesh.They should have the best coaching and practice facilities and play against the A teams of the top 5 one day cricket playing countries.The same applies to Nepal and Uganda.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
