Those Bangladeshi 9, 10 and 11 make a mockery of test level and professional cricket. That Bangladesh has had ample time and money to take advantage of that huge population, raises many questions.
On a positive note, Chats is a legend. Early 1990s Hutt Valley had a Hawke cup challenge in Nelson. On the Saturday night I joined the Valley boys on the traditional night out. Chats was playing (40 something?) and was pouring through the jugs. Bloody witty, but it took a bit to adjust to his understated way of talking. Obviously the young lads were on the strut and prowl but Chats got heaps of attention from, well now days they're called milfs. An abiding highlight of my sad life recalls us all striding down the middle of Hardy St at 2 am with Chats calling out my name and asking " how far to the strip club!"
And no, no shenanigans from Chats, he's too classy for that, he was just out being a team man.
Bangladesh have gotten a lot better though. They are a competitive side and could even beat us at home on a good day (we lost 4-0 in ODIs over there). Their batting is okay in placid conditions or at home. It's just that they can't develop even one quality fast bowler. Just look at the averages from the past 4/5 years. Even a team like Sri Lanka who aren't that good have some decent fast bowlers like Lakmal. It's probably a combination of Bangladesh not having the pitches and the people don't have the proper nutrition. It takes a lot to bowl at 135+ which is generally what you need.
It is worth noting Bangladesh have finished above us at each of the last three u-19 tournaments.
