Kiwi ODI series against Bangladesh 'shaping up as one of the worst ever': Morrison

Former New Zealand batsman John Morrison has labeled the Black Caps ODI series loss against Bangladesh as their worst tour in recent memory.


Auckland, Oct 15: Former New Zealand batsman John Morrison has labeled the Black Caps' ODI series loss against Bangladesh as their worst tour in recent memory.

Morrison's comment came on the back of New Zealand's third straight ODI loss to ninth ranked side Bangladesh, handing the minnows their first ever series win over a major cricketing nation.

"It's shaping up as one of the worst ever because Bangladesh is so lowly rated," the New Zealand Herald quoted Morrison, as saying.

When asked if it was similar to New Zealand's 5-0 ODI defeat to South Africa in 2000/01, Morrison said: "That was a bad tour to South Africa, but you can never say South Africa were a poor side. They may not have been as good as they sometimes are but they are a number of rungs up the ladder than Bangladesh at any time."e also highlighted concern for New Zealand cricket with the ICC future series programme set to change, which could see the best nations in the world turn their backs on tours Down Under.

"As we know television networks control a hell of a lot because they pay for most of the cricket, let's face it, and we're not a very attractive side and we're not performing then the danger is we start missing out on tours," Morrison said.

"Suddenly we don't see England here as much, Australia don't want to come here then we'll drop into the next zone we're we constantly playing Bangladesh, Pakistan and possibly Sri Lanka with the West Indies and Zimbabwe thrown in," he added.

New Zealand will attempt to avoid a series whitewash when they play the fifth ODI against Bangladesh on Sunday.
