Its definitely a good sign but its still a long way before we call bangladesh a good team. They are minnows and will remain so untill they develop a right frame of mind to play cricket. Their players play like Afridi most of the times. Hit n Miss with more miss's than hit.

Really a very good interview, I liked the part especially where Harsha talked about the administration part. Good job! Do miss him behind the commentary though!

Bangladesh is the best cricket team. around the world ( love you BD cricketers )

See this happen everytime with the minnows of cricket. The truth is that one or two series does not mean that a team's problems have gone away. Look at Zimbabwe, they beat Bangladesh and competed with Pakistan and New Zealand at home. But after a break they toured New Zealand and were embarrassingly beaten. Lets be realistic when it comes to minnows' results and take them as they come, not looking too far into the future, it will take some of the pressure off them...and let them take it one game at a time.

Great interview. It was great for the fans to get an insight of the Bangladesh team from the former coach of Bangladesh Jamie Siddons. I hope Bangladesh improve and become a threat to other top cricketing nations.

Good interview @ Harsha (esp the stats segment)

BD Road to Top Ranking:

1) Create good fast bowlers via building fast bowling academy eg AUS 2) Dont take players based on the fame but strictly on performances 3) Invest on 4-5 days version of cricket 4) Improve common cricketing sense & Be fearless
