Afghanistan 5-2 lucky we don’t have any associates there embarrassing themselves
Got tickets for the game on the 18th at OT, just hope England are batting first.

Afghanistan will still be batting at this rate. Looks like they’re anchoring in for the afternoon session.

Have recovered well to be fair to them, not exactly piling the runs one but at least they haven't collapsed. Kiwis absolutely coasting the other game.

Bangladesh finally giving us a good game, unless they knock over the Saffers for 170 odd of course.

They look set for a good score.


330/6 in the end. South Africa will need to bat well. No gimme total that.

Well done Bangladesh.

There's absolutely no excuse for not expanding the tournament.  
Spot on. They were outstanding today.

Considering how bad they were at one point, they now have a very decent international team.  Afghanistan will, at some point replicate them, and any of the associate members could.  Initially it might be ugly, but still, a great result.  Delighted for them (see Japan, rugby union for further explanation).

Indeed. Today wasn't a fluke win either, where SA had a stinker. Bangladesh put up a highly competitive score and defended it superbly.

Not on here admittedly but still seems folk see Bangladesh as cannon fodder, this hasn't been the case in white ball cricket for a few years, and even in Tests they're more than competent in Asian conditions, and being pish away from home in the 5 day game doesn't apply only to them.

Shakib is the fastest player in terms of games to 5000 ODI runs and 250 wickets, Tamim Iqbal would get in pretty much any other international side somewhere in the top 6, and Mustafizur is brilliant.
We should have beaten them in 1999 tho :(

1999 was such a missed opportunity, in retrospect.
