Bangladesh are on an upward curve

Here are the ages of the Bangladeshi team that beat South Africa in the Super 8s:

30, 18, 34, 20, 22, 21, 18, 23, 36, 24, 22.

That's an astoundingly young side, bar the three 30-plus guys.

This is the point. The other eight players could, realistically, play the next three World Cups. They're going to get better. Quite a lot better. Even some of today's finest players weren't setting the world alight at 18 or 20.

The only way these players won't be representing Bangladesh in eight years time is if EVEN BETTER players come along. Bangladesh are going to be pretty damn good, make no mistake.
