    ***Official*** Sri Lanka in Bangladesh 2014

    The tour is almost certain to go ahead after SLC said they were satisfied with security arrangements in Bangladesh after concerns were raised following widespread political violence took place in the preceding months leading up to the tour.

    Fixtures:

    1st Test
    , January 27-31, Mirpur
    2nd Test, February 4-8, Chittagong
    1st Twenty20
    , February 12, Chittagong
    2nd Twenty20, February 14, Chittagong

    1st ODI
    , February 17, Sylhet
    2nd ODI, February 20, Mirpur
    3rd ODI, February 22, Mirpur


    Sri Lanka will be keen to build on an encouraging performance in the UAE while Bangladesh will look to maintain their good recent form at home in the tests. The limited overs leg of the tour will then give an indication of what may be to come as far as both the World t20 and Asian Cup are concerned, an important tour for both sides.

    Note on venues in fixture - I don't think the first ODI will be held in Sylhet due to the security situation, pretty sure it will be held in Mirpur instead

    Looking forward to the series. It should be a good one. Though not happy with Imrul Kayes being in the team. He is in a good form for the season but selectors should have let him play couple more before selecting him straight away into tests.

    Anyway, I hope we pick this 11 - Tamim, Shamsur, Marshall, Mominul, Rahim, Shakib, Nasir, Mahmudullah, Gazi, Robiul and Al Amin.

    I'd be shocked if the pitches were bowler friendly but really expecting tame draws on flat decks.

    i am disappointed that Sanga and Mahela were included for us- i am a fan of them but think that their places could be given to two youngsters to give them experience of top level cricket before the England tour..hopefully we will make use of Pradeep more in this series

    Nah, Bangladesh at home can be a handful, Sri Lanka aren't really in a position to just leave out their two best batsmen for the sake of future building. Remember the last series in 2013? We drew the first test and then in the second they rode on a Sanga century after getting into trouble in the first innings - and that was at home.

    As for Pradeep, depending on conditions we might see 2 spinner attacks, in which case Pradeep would probably be left out because he can't maintain his pace and penetration throughout a long test match yet going by the Dubai test

    Should be interesting given Bangladesh's form over the past year.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    with all due respect to Bangaldesh, we should have enought strength in our ranks to win this series without these two and we need to plan for the future and this is an ideal opportunity..

    With all due respect to Sri Lanka, NZ is at least as good as your side and we didn't win our test series in Bangladesh (admittedly without Tim Southee) and if we'd removed our two best test bats (Taylor and Williamson) we would have lost. You shouldn't count any chickens prematurely especially after SL's most recent day of test cricket. If you want to plan for the future you have to make sure you don't drop out of the top 8.

    nah NZ don't have a spin bowler even close to Herath's class, which is critical for a series played in Bangladesh. Also factor in that Southee was missing and that for some reason NZ picked Bracewell, Bruce Martin and Sodhi in the first test...which were all awful selections.

    you are right that NZ are just as good, however we are better players of spin and have better spinners whereas you have better quicks and play fast and swinging bowling better than us..given that Bangladeshi bowling strengths are spin, that gives us an advantage over you guys there..

    but yeah, SL can't afford to remove Sangakkarra and Jayawardene.

    Sri Lanka are obviously favourites and should be expected to win this 2-0. But it depends what the pitch is like which I'm expecting to be of the slower side. Weather has looked really good in Bangladesh even though its the winter season. Anyway, hope for a good series.

    Sri Lanka have opted to bowl first, interesting, although pitches in Mirpur have been known to give less and less assistance to bowlers as the match goes on, I'm now anxiously awaiting the team announcements. Prasanna Jayawardene has gone home, father passed away, thoughts with him, but that throws up an interesting issue - who keeps? Chandimal probably, Vithinage will probably get a game now.

    EDIT: PJ's father is ill, not dead, bloody cricinfo
