The big stick

Dav Whatmore, at the end of day one of the Lord's Test between Bangladesh and England, figures it's "time to get the big stick out".
He has a point when he compares Bangla's plight to that of a Western cricketing nation that comes to the sub-continent and comes unstuck in unfamiliar conditions -- the more you play the better you get, Whatmore argues.
Catch though is, while we are waiting for Bangla to get better, there are batsmen inflating their averages, bowlers piling up the five-fors, teams adding wins to their resume that impacts on the ICC Test table... oh bloody hell, this is already trodden territory, time to get out.
