– So poor has been Bangladesh’s international record over the past year that even a 3-0 Test thrashing at home of fellow wooden-spooners Zimbabwe followed by a 5-0 sweep in the one-dayers was regarded as a moment to celebrate for millions of their supporters.

Those were the only wins for the Tigers through 2014, but still it gives them belief that all is not lost. Gone are the heady days when Bangladesh stunned Australia in a one-dayer in England and knocked India out of the 2007 World Cup.

They now hope to turn over a new leaf under new one-day captain Mashrafe Mortaza, with support from star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and dependable wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim.

Still, with four other Test nations in their group, Bangladesh will be considered to have done well if they qualify for the knock-out rounds.
