The team was weak gave no competition to the other Test teams all over the world. The victory did a lot to boost the confidence of the Bangladeshis. They followed the win by a one day tournament win, which not only saw Bangladesh win its first series but also it's first ODI.

But the big turn came on June 18 when Bangladesh caused one of the major upsets by defeating the strong Australians. It was a celebrated event for Bangladeshi cricket and they celebrated in great style. 2006 got off to a excellent opening for Bangladesh when they beaten Sri Lanka for the first time in an ODI.
