    Slightly surprised that Mathews bothered to declare, but it's left the Bangers needing 268 in 35 overs. It would be fun to see Tamim come out and start blasting away, but without him I think they'll be happy to bat out time. A couple of quick wickets could make it interesting, and I'm sure they've been bowled out in less time before, but surely not in these conditions.

    I don't think it actually is the flattest pitch in history, is my point. It's just a run of the mill cricket-killing road.
    Yeah, never seen such a road in Galle before at least, although I've seen worse. The team composition just makes it look worse than it is. Credit to Deshis where it's due etc., tho

    Next test should be interesting. If they perform a rank turner. reckon Gazi should be a serious threat. For Lankans, the ideal pitch is that has some life in it for Kula and Eranga to exploit. Not sure why the **** Abul and Shahadat are even in the squad.

    Not sure why Abdur Razzak has been recalled for the test. He is performing domestically but by no means I can rate him in test arena. Saqlain Sajib or Mosharraf would have been a better bet. Also disappointed by Sunny's performance. The pitch didn't offer anything for him but he looked out of sorts and bowled only one line and length without any variation or so.

    As far as pace bowling is concerned we are in a deep hole. Selectors and management keep picking Abul and Shahadat despite horrendous performance everytime. Not that bench warmers are any good but atleast you need to try them sometimes.

    Sunny's been getting hammered around domestically quite a lot lately; I'm a big fan but I didn't expect much from him in this game. I don't think making him open the batting all the time in domestic cricket is really helping his bowling, especially since he's not really good enough to do it even at that level.

    Is this the first proper decent result away for Bangladesh where they have played against a side not weakened by ridiculous board demands or helped by the weather?

    I think BD drew away to a WI side containing Lara, Chanderpaul, Gayle and Sarwan, found the scorecard:

    1st Test: West Indies v Bangladesh at Gros Islet, May 28-Jun 1, 2004 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    BD even managed to set a target of 336 but ran out of time, they surely would've bowled them out

    There was also a infamous game against Pakistan in Multan where BD lost by a wicket but came so close and probably should have won, only a brilliant inning of 138* from Inzamam saved Pakistan. I'm not sure but I think there might have been a few controversies in that game. Just checked and found out that Rasid Latif claimed a dropped catch against Alok Kapali, who was on 22 and the score was 91/5 with BD, so it was kind of crucial:

    3rd Test: Pakistan v Bangladesh at Multan, Sep 3-6, 2003 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    more on the "catch":

    We have heard these before, but I would request him to not just make announcements but pay us as well.
    Mushfiqur Rahim on the sports minister's frequent announcements as soon as a batsman reaches a century

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Sri Lanka think they have enough at 570 and then Bangladesh score 638. Amazing.

    Something needs to be done about these ****ing roads.
    Last time when the pitch spun against AUS and ENG, people were whinning about the pitch, Give me that dustbowl everyday than this road. If touring parties cannot play spin, then they should give away their test status and become associate members.

    ODI squad looks ok. Good to see Nazmul back in the mix. He has fairly good record against SL. Only complain is that Taskin should have been there but selectors might want him to groove more domestically before Int Cricket.

    ODI squad: Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Anamul Haque, Jaharul Islam, Mohammad Ashraful, Muminul Haque, Mahmudullah (vc), Nasir Hossain, Shohag Gazi, Abdur Razzak, Rubel Hossain, Nazmul Hossain, Mosharraf Hossain, Abul Hasan, Ziaur Rahman.

    Bold statement. If it was an Indian cricketer saying that, he would have been kicked out of the team now..

    Bangladesh have the regular sized Sri Lankans 3/43 at the moment, looks like a tight Test at the moment with a winner likely.
