5 reasons Bangladesh is mighty at home
#4. Deteriorating condition of visiting teams
In the last few years, Bangladesh cricket has developed immensely but they have also benefited from the fact that others teams in world cricket are going through a transitional phase.
The current Test teams of Australia and South Africa are not even a shadow of their past. The miseries of England have been exposed brutally as well. Hence, these under-confident teams have made the challenge a little easier for the Bangla Tigers.
The resolution and grit displayed by Ricky Ponting or Graeme Smith is missing while the ability to perform irrespective of the conditions has also become rare. The current teams that have toured Bangladesh consisted of players who have little knowledge of the Asian conditions. Also, these players lack the skills that are mandatory to survive against such opponents.
Thus, the drop in quality of the visiting teams has fuelled the growth of Bangladesh cricket.
