Wow, Dickwella on fire. Was really impressed with his strokeplay in the "Who Cares Cup" (Stuart Clarke) T20 series down here in Aus.
Really good from Bangladesh to bowl us out for under 500 considering where we started the day.. Hopefully our bowlers will make early in roads..

Third time that we bowled SL out. Just goes to show how dominant SL been in the past as we played quite a few with them.

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.Supporting XI
Soumya Sarkar, Pinak Ghosh, Mominul Haque, Mosaddek Hossain, Nazmul Hossain, Shabbir, Nurul Hasan, Mehedi Miraz, Abu Hider, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman
Mendis was threatening Bannerman's record for highest percentage of the team score in a test, again !
Disappointing to see Mendis did not get his double.... opportunities don`t come along very often (even against Bangladesh).

The biggest brain fade ever. Ball goes to keeper and off goes tamim for a run and gets run out. Wtf
Will take a big collapse from here from one of the teams, if this test has to have a result - especially given the weather forecast
Edit: Lol, and Bangla seems to have started to collapse

Genuine self induced world class run out by formerly known as the tits
Strong response from Bangladesh..Well done
Mominul hasn't been the same ever since the Zimbabwe test series. He is clearly struggling. Tamim is a joke. I'm actually not happy with Fizz's bowling. He tries too many things in test matches. He needs to keep it simple otherwise he will struggle. ODI and T20 is a completely different ball game compared to tests. Fizz should see how Hazlewood bowls in tests who doesn't possess the talent Fizz possesses. I also think Mushfiqur overused him yet again. Sri Lanka are clearly on top after those first 2 days: they are a difficult side to face in tests for most opposition at home. Mushfiqur also needs to resign as captain, and he of all people should know he doesn't have the leadership skills. Mahmudullah will be a far better captain, but his batting in tests is left to be desired. Don't be surprised if Sri Lanka win this series 2-0 as it's really expected. Sri Lanka players are far more intelligent than Bangladesh players, and look more athletic. I will still persist with Imrul over Sarker in tests, but Sarker success in tests will bode well when it comes to the ODI leg. Ideally I would like to see this XI in the ODI series: Tamim, Sarker, Shabbir, Mushfiqur, Shakib, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek...
You are a bit harsh on Fizz. He has been the most economical. Not easy coming back and its not an easy pitch for the bowlers. He did not bowl exceptionally well but did not bowl badly either. We need to lower the expectation from him too. He is not going to destroy line ups in all matches.
