I think so - its certainly up there but we did see this coming. Some of us called it months back. We are not playing high quality cricket so it shouldn't surprise that we keep losing.

Well actually, i don't think it was.. This Bangladesh team is a totally different one.. They r playing spin better than all India, Australia and England players put together... They beat us by playing excellently, no point in blaming anyone.. There have been many humiliating collapses in our past.. After all said and done, we need to get the selections right.. No point in backing players who are not consistent or mature enough.. Can't judge players like mendis , dananjaya, gunaratne etc too harshly.. They r just starting.. Its the old ones who r the problems..Despite all three, chandimal, dimuth and tharanga getting centuries, i don't think they r doing enough for the team considering their experience.. Bangladesh dropped their misfiring "big players" and the new ones really stepped up.. Time to move on.. Bat the right people at the right spot.. Dananjaya a solid opener shouldn't bat at 5 or 6!.

1996 we were world Champion and We lost to Kenya in world cup back in 1999 and eliminated in the 1st round itself.I think that is more embarrassing.

We did not lose to Kenya in 1999. We got eliminated, though, in the 1st round in 1999. We lost to Kenya in 2003 but we advanced to the semi finals in that World Cup and lost to Australia.
