    This is almost exactly the same as what happened in the first 'Test' played in Bangladesh last year, where Warnapura and Jehan Mubarak destroyed Bangladesh A on the opening day.

    A really disappointing showing from Bangladesh A there, although I can't really understand why only one specialist spinner has been picked - Enamul Haque jnr (although that may have something to do with Manjural Islam Rana's death). Mahmudullah is a bits and pieces ODI all-rounder really.

    I guess given the circumstances, that Bangladesh A are playing is a positive.

    Unless they change the struture of championship again then the top 6 teams in the P&R group qualify for next season Div 1. That means its basically a battle between Saracens, SL Army and Panadura for regulation. 14 sides to too much for competitive Div One, but you can't do much when there is 21 sides and they want to help the lower sides improve not increase the gap. It does seem though ever season there is another competitive sides that comes through, this season was Lankan CC, so hopefully they can keep on improving next season in Div One.

    Segment B is Divsion Two, they haven't really unified the names. Some call it Tier B, others Divsion Two and here Segment B

    Looking at Bangladesh A bowling attack they don't look that strong apart from Enamul Haque jnr. Both Nazmul Hossain and Talha Jubair have struggled at international level and their domestic records don't look great. Nazmul Hossain bowled really well on the first day. Probably should have gone with a specialist seamer or spinner instead of Mahmudullah. Is Abdul Razzaq in the Windies?

    Also im a bit surprised at your batting performances, the pitch is meant to be a flat tracker and pace attack pretty average. Bangladesh's batting line up also look quite good.

    The big positive from a Sri Lankan point of view is the performance of Warnapura, he really is killing it at this level. Its going to take some big performances from Kapugedera, Dilshan and Samarawerra in this series to keep him out of the No 6 spot next Test Series. I was a bit worried the vice captaincy might effect his batting, but it could be a positive.

    The first one-dayer has started today. Bangladesh A should be much more competitive here.

    Bangladesh 243-5 (45)
    Jahurul Islam 70, Mehrab Hossain jnr 24, Nazimuddin 26, Tushar Imran 68, Nadif Chowdhury 29, Mahmudullah 16*, Farhad Reza 0*

    Jahurul Islam is keeping in place of Khaled Mashud. That's not too bad an effort against an attack that includes Ganegama and Lokuarachchi.

    After getting smashed in the two "Tests" I expect Bangladeh A will be a lot more competitive in the limited over clashes, with some pretty decent players like Farhad Reza, Tushar Imran and Mehrab Hossain playing it has strengthened their batting significantly, which is what let them down in the "Tests".

    Bangladesh 284/8
    Jahurul Islam 70, Mehrab Hossain jnr 24, Nazimuddin 26, Tushar Imran 68, Nadif Chowdhury 29, Mahmudullah 34, Farhad Reza 12

    Very good total against a bowling attack including ODI players like Lokuarachchi and Ganegama like you said JJ. However, with a batting lineup that includes classy players such as Kapugedara, Mubarak and Vandort it may not be enough. It would do Enamul Haque's chances no harm if he had a few good games here.

    Sri Lanka A ended up winning this game, Lokuarachchi and Kapugedara scored most of the runs while Dilruwan Perera (List A avearge of 15) was promoted to open the batting and scored a quickfire 50. Farhad Reza was about the only one who performed in the bowling attack, although Enamul Haque jr was economical in the context of the game.

    A disappointing bowling performance from Bangladesh A there, but Sri Lanka's batting oozes class. No bite to the attack at all.
