Bangladesh slump to 89 all out

Sri Lanka are dominating against Bangladesh, to an absurd extent, with Bangladesh all out for 89. You can view the Cricinfo report here. Unfortunately the change of skipper has had little effect on Bangladesh's fortunes and it's difficult to see where they go from here.

There is fast becoming a three teir structure to Test matches:
1. Australia
2. England, South Africa, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka
3. West Indies, Bangladesh, (Zimbabwe)

I hope the West Indies and Bangladesh can overcome their problems quickly, so that all test playing nations can play in relatively evenly-matched games, creating greater interest from spectators and potential spectators.
