Some tour this - a washed out warm up and just 2 tests. No ODI/20-20.

Does this surprise you? Australia never have had any time for the minnows.

Australia vs Bangladesh

Tests : P4 W4 D0 L0
ODIs : P20 W18 L1 (NR 1)
T20Is : P4 W4 L0 (NR 0)

In terms of ODI series that is 4 lots of 3-0 whitewashes in 03/04, 05/06, 08/09 and 10/11. It is no more shocking than the ICC doing nothing about it. I have to conclude the other 8 were World Cup or other competition matches.

4 Tests aren't hard to gauge how lacking that is, England have played them in 10 Tests, but to put the harder to judge ODIs tally into perspective England have played Bangladesh 20 times also (W16 L4)

Australia vs Zimbabwe

Tests : P3 W3 D0 L0
ODIs : P30 W27 L2 (NR 1)
T20Is : P1 W0 L1 (NR 1)

Australia have played only TWO bilateral ODI series against Zimbabwe, again winning both 3-0. ODIs do go back to 1983 (World Cup) when Pycroft, Houghton, Fletcher, Curran, Butchart, Traicos et al beat Australia by 13 runs - one of only two wins, a bit of symmetry in Zimbabwe having won their first ODI meeting and at present their last.

Again to put into perspective England have played Zimbabwe 31 times in ODIs, neither England nor Australia have a lot of time for these two minnows. In both cases England have played at least double the number of Tests, but a similar number of ODIs.

Australia don't treat New Zealand much better, really. I'd say England play NZ more, without looking at the stats. At least in Tests.

All Hasan and Iqbal showing that if they get in Bangladesh are a difficult team to play against at home. Reminiscent of England's top order, two good players and 3 others.

Looks like Cummins made good use of that new ball. Should be a good series.

I think Bangladesh away is certainly a fixture that teams will be dreading. Still get criticised heavily if they lose but they're definitely a competitive side now. Smith and Renshaw still there for Oz, though, who are probably their two key guys for this situation.

For a change, Smith did not last for too long. Australia have a fight on their hands.

a run out and the nightwatchman, they've made a right meal of their reply so far, but also doesn't give too much indication of what the aussies might score as the deshis have only got one top order batsman out by means of bowling......

The Aussie tail has wagged somewhat, leaving Bangladesh a lead of 43 at the break. 5fer for Shakib.

Believe that means he now has a test 5fer against every nation. Only other current players in that club were Steyn, Herath and someone else who I can't remember.

EDIT - not just current players and Murali was the other one.

If Bangladesh get a decent score in the 2nd innings Australia wont fancy this.

Tamim has got himself in, now. Don't know exactly how the pitch is playing but I'm assuming there's a lot of turn. Bangladesh "net" 86/1 at the moment so in a really good position to set a chase of 250+.

Flattened out a bit but alot of turn anything above 250 will be very very difficult to chase

Well this is going to script. Bangladesh were a ludicrous $6.50 before the start of this test, so that will be the easiest $100 I've ever pocketed. A good effort by the kids so far, but I don't know why we even bother issuing Warner a passport anymore.

aussies needed early wickets and the key wickets of Iqbal, Al-Hasan and Rahim, of which they've got none.

Rare game against the deshis, looking like an even rarer defeat (4-0 in Tests, 18-1 in ODIs and 4-0 in T20Is with a single NR in ODIs)
