    Bangladesh to maybe win one ODI.

    Their bismal performances in the tests will more than compensate for their improved ODI play, though.

    I would hope the Sri Lankans rest the regulars and give some of the fringe players a chance to show what they can do.

    I would rest Murali, Sangakkara, Vaas, (and the injury prone duo of ) Dilhara, Zoysa etc, and even Mahela - and fill their spots with suitable others in the ODIs to see what these players who have promised but failed to deliver in the past can do -

    This would mean playing Kalavitigoda, Prasanna Jayawardene as Wicket keeper, Van Dort, Ian Daniel, New spinner Weerakoon , Jayaprakashdaran, Dilhara Lokuhettige etc.

    I would be quite happy even if SL only just manage to win the ODI series, if they can give a lot of the potentials a chance to play International Cricket and see what they do.

    I expect Bangla to win more than one ODI !!

    This would mean Sri Lanka losing the series. Giving all these players a go at various stages of the series, and resting some of the stars for each match, is a good idea against Bangladesh, but to rest everyone at once would be rediculous, and far too risky.

    A Good point !!

    But losing 1-2 games should not be the end of the World or considered that disastrous that fringe players are not given a chance and the same old warhorses like Jayasuriya and Murali are given further opportunity to kill a dead snake like Bangla and look great !!!

    I agree with u Jason. giving the fringe players a chance is a good idea, specially against a weak team like Bangladesh. but I wouldn't rest Mahela. he showed some form in the recent ODI series so I would give him the captaincy, only in the ODI series mind u!

    The object of the game is to win.

    Resting a few players here and there against Bangladesh doesnt hurt, but resting half the squad and serioulsy risking a series loss is just ludicrous!

    Didn't Sri Lanka do that before against Bangladesh? Rested a whole bunch of regulars and still cake walked it in the end.

    BTW when does the series begin?
