 Wow!  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!  Wow!

What is going on?

Bangladesh piled up 427 in their first innings which was amazing in itself given that everyone expected 100 all out, and now Australia are 50-3 in reply!

Surely, surely Australia will wake up and start wiping the floor with them at some point.

Latest score:

Everyone expected them to gub England in the Ashes, but they didn't, so perhaps it's Bangladesh's turn to humiliate the Aussies  Wink

Well it won't be Hussey. He's just been dismissed by Mohammed Rafique!

61-4!  Wow!

Bloody hellfire, this is amazing.

I do agree that I'd still expect Australia to win here. But even so....

How humiliating. Didn't Ricky Ponting say some time ago that Bangladesh should be stripped of test status??? I think someone could be eating humble pie soon.

Although to be fair, he wasn't the only one.

Thus far, indeed it is. Not helped by the fact that (so far) the Bangladeshi openers are smashing the Australian attack round the park.

I still think Australia could chase down a target of 450, but oh my, it's getting interesting.

Bangladesh 427 & 40-0
Australia 269.

26 TSV : 90 something to get with 6 wickets in hand ... Put your money on Bangladesh.
27 Post contains images Banco : You'd lose. Australia win by 3 wickets. Ooooh, you got out of gaol there, fellers.
28 Post contains images HAWK21M : So I guessed Right regds MEL
29 Lordanmol : Now we have to wait till the next test for any surprises Regards
30 Zkpilot : Damn! I was enjoying the aussies getting a hiding by the underdogs of the testcricket world
31 HAWK21M : The lead was not enough. regds MEL
32 TSV : Well maybe this proves then that Bangladesh isn't up to Test status just yet as any other average Test team in that position would have sunk Australi
33 Post contains images Banco : Not really. You always nearly got out of gaol, but not quite against England. Funny, really. I was talking to an Australian friend of mine about that
34 Post contains images HAWK21M : In case Ban had won.Their rankings would have shot up regds MEL
35 Monteycarlos : Hate to see what the Bangladesh team would do to your team if they made 469 in the first innings against the world's best team... shit you guys would
36 Banco : But no longer the world's best bowling attack. Warne was ordinary this Test, and without McGrath the Australian attack looks something of a shadow of
37 TSV : That's why they have to practice then. There is always next time ... Long term if we check the Fridge and the Freezer and they are bare too.

39 TSV : I think every man and his dog has a theory but whether any of them is right is another matter. One could simple be injury attrition. For every hundre
40 Banco : There seems to be an element of denial about it though - not from you, mind. I remember reading the reports about Stuart Clark in South Africa as if
41 TSV : Plunkett and Foottit Great sounding combination. For our sake let's not hope it's as good as Lillee and Thompson.
42 Monteycarlos : Banco, you can believe what you want but when your beloved fast bowlers come down here and find out that they can't generate any reverse swing I am go
43 TSV : As if to immediately prove :
44 Banco : Where do you think Simon Jones learnt about reverse swing? Willing to be corrected. McGrath and Kasprowicz are at the tail end of their careers, and
45 Monteycarlos : There are aliens... did I just prove that?
46 TSV : I think that depends on one's state of mind.
47 Monteycarlos : After bowling a ball in Perth? Probably the same ball ponting had just belted him for six into a brick wall from 100 meters away. Why do you keep kno
48 Banco : No. Playing grade cricket in Sydney. You're talking very big about smashing the England bowling attack around considering that they took your line up
49 Monteycarlos : Banco, honestly I don't care anymore.
50 Bill142 : Its ok, the little man inside Banco is getting upset.
51 Post contains images Banco : What's with the snide comments? It was just a normal conversation.
52 David_itl : Banco, you know the Aussie bowler England's got to fear is the one carted for 113 in 10 overs against SA. Can't remember his name but pretty sure he's
