As things stand, none of them but maybe in time they will improve.

They have given Bangladesh a good game but I wouldn't say one is better than the other at present.

Yes, BD seem to be breaking through themselves.

Hard to tell until they play more games.

The question is, can Afghanistan do it on a cold Tuesday night in Stoke?

Bangladesh are easily the best side out of those 4. Hard to rank the other 3. Probably Pak > WI > SL.

Wouldn't say Afghanistan are better than any of those sides, there seems this horrible trend of talking up the flavour of the month associate side as being better than the lower full member sides. This of course forgets that the full member sides are playing other full member sides all of the time whereas the associates are not. At least its not Ireland anymore, I do wish the ICC would get the associates games against A sides of the higher ranked full member sides each year. For all the talk about Ireland when they finally ran into a higher ranked ODI side they got battered.

Don't get me wrong, I like Afghanistan as a side an the way, unlike certain other associate sides, they have built their own team based on their own domestic cricket. But don't be under any impression that they would compete if they were thrown into playing the higher ranked full member sides on a regular basis.
