I know it's a bit early, but I thought I'd create it to give Indian fans something useful to talk about rather than bitching and moaning in the WC section.
I think this tour will be very interesting actually, and potentially very important for both teams. It'll be interesting to see if Bangladesh can sustain their improvement over a more long-term basis, and most importantly, see how guys like Saqibul actually do at test level.
It's also important for India to get back on track, and there's the whole revenge factor and all.
Quite excited about the tests really.

Seriously, the ODIs could go either way I guess but I'm actually thinking India 3-0 in three fairly close affairs.
I have no idea how the tests will pan out though - will be interesting to see if Desh are competitive in them.

Crappy I know
But honestly, just because India had one lousy day and lost to Bangladesh, doesn't mean we'll have a lousy time in this series as well. Is possible, but very very very unlikely.
Anyways, yea the whole revenge thing comes into play as well, look for India to play to their full potential...
ODIs: 3-0 India
Tests: 1-0 India

With the same current team and formations India to get their rear end kicked. I am willing to join the bandwagon of SS from here onwards.

Just a useless prediction
Tests 2-0 India, fairly comfortably
ODIs 2-1 India

Been interesting to see how Bangladesh go in the Test matches, I'm expecting/ hoping Habibul Bashar and Mohammad Rafique will continue playing international cricket after the World Cup so they would both be available. Rajin Saleh, Mohammad Ashraful and Shahriar Nafees will have to score big runs if Bangladesh are in with a shot of knocking over India. Hopefully Javed Omar makes way for a younger opener like Tamim Iqbal who has had an excellent start to his First Class career, the bowling attack will be fairly predictable with Rafique, Mortaza, Razzaq and Hossain likely to be the lineup. Expecting Mushfiqur Rahim to take the gloves off Khaled Mashud aswell.

Time for revenge. It's also time for the old guns to look at retirement.
Early useless predictions, this is going to be a really pressure packed series for India considering what happened in the WC. I'll go for the upsets
ODI 2-1, Bangladesh
Test Series 1-1
If the Indian fans didn't jump off Bridges after the WC they just may do it after this series. In honestly it could go 3-0/2-0 India but I have hope for this new generation in the Test arena.
Nafees, Tamim, Bashar, Ashraful, Sakib, Rajin, Rahim, Rafique,Enam jr, Mashrafe, Shahadat.
I just left out Razzak, Aftab and Rasel. It be Intresting to see who'll play in the test Series beacuse IMO Razzak just doesn't have the Stamina and Aftab just may not be Test Material. Plus i wouldn't be surprised if a 20/20 wasn't added into schedule

Not revenge but partial redemption.
Tendular/Dravid/Ganguly while on paper a most impressive bunch, will go down in ODI history pretty badly at the moment. Can salvage a little bit of pride with an utterly clean sweep in BD.
