Bangladesh Cricket Team
The Bangladesh national cricket team, nicknamed The Tigers administered by the Bangladesh Cricket Board is a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with Test and One Day International status. Bangladesh played its first Test match in November 2000 against India in Dhaka, making it the tenth Test-playing nation.
Bangladesh made its debut in international cricket in the 1986 Asia Cup.
In 1997, Bangladesh won the ICC Trophy in Malaysia and qualifying for its first Cricket World Cup to participate in England in 1999. There, it defeated Pakistan – causing much upset – and also Scotland. On 26 June 2000, Bangladesh was granted full ICC membership.
Bangladesh holds the record for most consecutive losses in Test matches and One Day Internationals. After gaining full member status with the ICC, Bangladesh had to wait until 2004 for its first ODI win since the 1999 World Cup. Bangladesh won their first Test series. In 2009 Bangladesh toured the West Indies for two Tests and by winning both secured their first overseas Test series victory.
Bangladesh has played 108 Tests, winning ten. Its first victory was against team Zimbabwe, and the next two came against the West Indian team. They played their 100th Test when they toured Sri Lanka in March 2017.
Bangladesh is currently ranked ninth in Tests, seventh in ODIs and tenth in T20Is by the ICC
