Siddons not shocked by whitewash

Bangladesh coach Jamie Siddons acknowledges his team's 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Pakistan was not unexpected but insists the Tigers can take positives from the one-day international series whitewash.

The tourists were competitive in only two of the five matches, losing the last ODI in Karachi by 150 runs. They also lost Sunday's one-off Twenty20 match by a margin of 102 runs.

"Realistically I came here thinking we might lose 5-0," Siddons admitted in Pakistani daily The News.

"You guys might think that is negative thinking but I think it is realistic. I know where we stand, where we are and where we need to be.
