All Updates

The Bangladesh national cricket team toured England for the first time in 2005. Bangladesh had just come off their first ever Test series win, which was against Zimbabwe, but were still rooted to the bottom of the ICC Test Championship table. England, under Michael Vaughan's leadership, had moved to second in the Test table.

The Bangladeshis started their tour with first-class warm-up games against the British Universities, Sussex and Northamptonshire. They then played two Tests, and were humiliated by an innings in both of them, with neither game reaching lunch on the third day. The tour then moved on to one-day matches. Warm-up games were played against Derbyshire and Worcestershire before Bangladesh took on England and Australia in the tri-nations NatWest Series, where they pulled off a stunning victory over the world champions.

First-class matches

The tour started with a comfortable draw against British Universities at Fenner's, before stuttering to a disastrous innings defeat against Sussex and escaping with a draw in a rain-ravaged match against a second-string Northamptonshire. However, not even the horrible match at Sussex would have prepared them for what awaited in the first Test against England. Despite England not playing perfect cricket, they still won by an innings and 261 runs. The second Test was won by an innings and 27 runs, resulting in a 2-0 series victory for England as they headed into the one-day tri-series with Australia.
