    I'm no expert on the Tigers, so given that Rubel looks like a standard fixture in every test match they play I thought he was the best they got.

    I'm genuinely interested, who do you rate as the three best fast(ish) bowlers in/from Bangladesh?
    It's the pitch, stupid.

    Match got away from Bangladesh in the last 8 overs of Sri Lanka's innings - up to that point they were heading for a total around 175/180 - but the visitors can take some heart from their reply, their biggest total batting 2nd in T20s.

    Zim-Bang apart, that's the last international cricket until May isn't it? Sucks that the Windies had two home Tests this year, and those against Zimbabwe. IPL comes smack in the middle of their season though.

    We can take some Solace we did this without Tamim, Shakib and Mortaza. To our credit we kept fighting after that atrocious decision against Ashraful.

    I guess their is an unoffical IPL window.

    These pacers need a kick in they're ass and better straighten out before the 1st Test in Harare.

    Would have like to seen us play in the champions trophy though. Series wins against WI, NZ, Asia Cup finalists. Even beat England a few times since the points were reset.

    Rubel is poor man's Johnson, except that he isn't even remotely as destructive when in form. I guess they play him since he's the paciest of them all, but he's done **** all at any level in domestic cricket. Shahadat Hossain at least does something in first class cricket, but again, awful T20 bowler.

    I guess they're better of sticking with Nazmul Hossain, Shafiul Islam and Mortaza when fit. Mortaza clearly the best of the lot, obviously. Taskin Ahmed dude looked fine when I saw him the last time too. But it's just bizzare how they're obsessed with fast bowling while their strength is obviously spin.
