    Sanga certainly loves the taste of Banga bowling.

    This Sanga century was more important than the previous 2, but still it doesn't feel like it counts when it comes against such a weak bowling attack.

    Just 15 behind now, good start this ...

    Seems like a while since Tamim hit a 100, and Jahurul's maiden 50 is overdue.

    Apart from Sanga, Chandimal and Herath, the other 8 players didn't looked like enjoying the minnow bashing of which the aforementioned three will be accused of, so that their classic innings will be devalued.

    Bangladesh has turned into a very decent team, one seamer (and a few more tests per year) from being on par with SL. There will surely be the occasional horrible drawback (expecially if they keep having a sabbatical year every now and then) but I won't take a victory against them for granted in the near future.

    New Zealand is touring in November, that's as big a chance as they can get (apart from hosting Australia, the Tigers would be clear favorites in such a series)


    Anyway, I wouldn't write Bangladesh off this game yet, SL has to bat last on that pitch which means that a 220-230 lead could be enough; and this Gazi fellow looks like one of those irregular bowlers who, on his day, could roll over sides.
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    Such a pity that Jahurul gave it away after battling away 170 balls for 48. Expecting this one to finish tomorrow and Sri Lanka to win by 5 or 6 wickets. Not for the first time, Bangladesh can blame their first innings batting if that happens - 240 is never enough unless you've got the bowlers to hit back.

    Nervous as a SL fan. A chase of 150+ seems all set for a choke job.
    The big mush Kulasekera has already dropped a catch, so things are looking good for Bangladesh.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    Herath starts with an early wicket, and on his way to 200 test wickets here.

    Vivek Bhandari: "And with that, Abul "Bradman" Hasan continues to raise the bar for the mortal batsmen with his batting average. He is a rare allrounder with a high batting average with an even higher bowling average."
    When asked what the IPL means for seasoned pros like him, Dravid smiled and neatly deflected the question: it is a different world altogether, he said. "The other day I walked the ramp as part of a promotional event. When I started my career, I never imagined this would be part of a cricketer's life!"

    Should be straightforward. I see Nasir got a duck, Ashraful 4 and Mahmudullah 0. Obviously every batsman is vulnerable at the start of his innings but worthwhile contributions from those three would have pushed the target up to around 250, which no side likes to chase.

    Yes 200 wickets for Herath and he would have been long odds to get there in this Test, considering he needed 12. He's really carried the attack in this match.

    Can't be many finger spinners with 200 wickets at under 30 each. In good company.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Not sure why Zia is playing ahead of Mominul
