My money is on bangladesh winnig
Khaled Mashud is rested for Bangladesh, he is replaced by Nadif Chowdhury, a big-hitting lower-order batsman. Mushfiqur Rahim will now get a chance in both games. I hope Bangladesh also play three seamers, they'll learn nothing by playing just the two.
Really looking forward to this series, hopefully Bangladesh can show what an improved side they are and should be able to do away with Scotland easily. No disrespect intended. Hopefully some of the younger players like Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehrab Hossain will be able to show that the future of Bangladesh cricket is bright.

no im hoping scotland atleast wins one match because that shows theres not that much gab between them which means if bangladesh have a chance to cause upset at the world cup than so do scotland or its just going to be not good for the world cup

BCB Academy v Scotland report
Tamim Iqbal could well be opening in ODIs for Bangladesh in the next couple of years. He's more aggressive and free-flowing than Mehrab, though he offers nothing with the ball.
Nadif's batting has been a revelation this year: being banned from bowling appears to have unexpectedly resulted in an upturn of fortunes. The Scots are going to find the going pretty tough I think.
crickethorizon, are you Bangladeshi/have a real interest in Bangladeshi cricket. If so check out the Bangladesh Domestic Season Thread (link in my sig), it'd be great to have someone with a bit more inside knowledge there.

Money problems I think, they can't afford to go on these sort of oversea's tours which is a real shame.

Kenya did visit Bangladesh in March this year but lost the 4 match series 4-0. Bangladesh made a retrun trip in August and again whitewashed them 3-0.Originally Posted by Craig
Two contrasting innings here: Nafees, who appeared so fluent against Zimbabwe, has crawled to 20 from 42 balls, while Aftab has hammered 60 from 44. Bangladesh should have this one in the bag.
Six-wicket win inside 29.1 overs. Spinners Ross Lyons took two, but was slapped for 52 runs. Unbeaten 20 for Saqibul, 66 for Aftab, and 36 from Nafees.

when you're winning, you have friends
scores and dozens, real friends
when you're winning, never lonely
when you keep winning
Young Aftab Ahmed does like a six or two...

Bangladesh in early 2001-2002 was like that.
Current Bangladesh team has a gulf difference between Scots or Irish team.
BCB academy team can easily beat both of them like they did in the first practice match.
But, I do support that Scots and Ireland should play more ODI against test teams.
