Most likely the pitch will produce yet another result in Sri Lanka, so toss will be crucial for both sides. It will be close, but I'm still expecting Sri Lanka to win this 2-0. ODIs are a different story, but Sri Lanka are by far the superior test side. Sri Lanka's batting line-up despite the retirements of their 3 best batsman is still much stronger than Bangladesh. Chandimal is just as good as Mushfiqur. Tharanga has more of a flare than Tamim. We all saw how Mendis performed against Australia last year. Bowling attack isn't a problem for Bangladesh, or even batting. The problem is Mushfiqur's captaincy and poor fielding standards. You can be sure Bangladesh will continue to drop more catches during this test series. Sri Lanka don't drop catches that often. Herath will be too much for our batsman even for Mushfiqur.
    This is not really true of the current side though. In fact even Graham Ford the coach has recently come out and said this is a big issue - and one that needs fixing at grassroots level. SL have been dropping chances - at least 2 - in pretty much every game they played in recent times. Their ground fielding has been incredibly poor. One of the reasons is fitness - our guy's are just not fit enough - when compared to the elite level fitness other sides have.

    I agree the SL side on paper is a superior Test side, but they have a lot of issues with their batting - that can be exploited by BD. Starting with the openers. But as this is at home - they are certainly fav's going in. Re: Chandimal, he had a terrible tour of SA, although before that he had a good run. Problem with him is lack of consistency and shot selection. That is is why I said earlier this is a chance for him to get back into the fold - at home - against relatively easier opposition. It is also a big tour for Mendis - who is getting starts and then throwing them away. Hopefully something that is rectified with experience and on a tour like this.

    I have a terrible feeling Mehedi will trouble all our batsmen who have been very average against spinners in the last 5 years.

    Really hoping that they dont drop Taijul here. Going by Mushfiq's comments about the pitch that its on the greener side and how its going to help fast bowlers in first couple of days, I am really worried that they might play Rabbi/Roy instead of Taijul.

    Urgh. Three fast bowlers, Mehdi and Shakib.

    Don't see why we need Roy, hope he goes well but I'd rather Taijul/Sabbir, or the extra allrounder.

    Man we know how to shoot ourselves in the foot. Drop the best bowler from last match. Also why Roy?? Atleast Rabbi can dead bat

    Probably perceive Roy as more of a conventional swing bowler while Rabbi specialises in reverse.

    But we don't need 3 quicks unless they are very concerned about Taskin/Fizz breaking down.

    Sigh.

    Also Harsh WAG getting the thread stickied on time.
