But, they have won matches like this so many times now, prompting people to say they have finally arrived. The point is that they have been around for a while now, it's just that not too many have taken note.

If a coach's efficacy is to be judged by how much he has lifted the performance of his team, you'd struggle to beat Whatmore. Brick by brick, he has built this Bangladesh team.
