    Hard to predict this series. Sri Lanka are favourites. It's good to have the Fizz return to the side again in full-flow to. It depends on what the pitch is like though. Ideally, I prefer a spinning pitch as it will give both sides a stiff of a chance to claim victory. Herath is clearly the best spinner between the sides. Fizz is the best fast bowler between the sides; however, Sri Lanka fast bowlers are still pretty good. Their newer batsman are actually good. I remember when Australia toured last year, and some of their new batsman produced match winning innings though the series was close. My XI will be Tamim, Sarker, Mominul, Mushfiqur, Mahmudullah, Shakib, Liton, Mehedi, Roy, Taskin and Fizz. I have been disappointed with Mehedi ever since the England series, but it's a learning curve for him. I actually prefer Imrul over Sarker as Sarker just doesn't have the ability to execute his skills. Having Imrul means we have no choice, but to include Shabbir as we'll be light on quality fielding. Our middle order looks strong.

    I would like Taijul in place of Roy. Roy is a liability. Not consistent enough to play at this level.

    Finally Mushfiq is forced to give up gloves which is a good sign. No. 4 is also ideal place for him.

    Good to see that SL has included Dickwella and Gunaratne. Both batsman are a little loose from what I've seen, but they have a high upside if they can translate their white ball form into Test Cricket. I also like the idea of having a positive opener (in Dickwella) batting with Karunaratne. I always felt like the previous pair were too similar and on the odd occasion that they didn't lose an early wicket, they never took the game away from the opposition.

    If this was in Bangladesh I'd like their hopes here, as it is Sri Lanka should be favourites.
    5-0

    Nice to see chandimal back into the runs again with a lovely 190* against the Bangladeshis in the warm up game.

    I like Mushy as a pure bat

    BD in with a genuine shot at winning an away test, but SL might have too much talent for them. Herath, Chandimal, Mathews...

    Mathews is out of the series. Herath is the biggest threat

    Considering its at home I reckon Kusal Mendis and Chandimal will do well. You can't dismiss Bangladesh as minnows anymore, they are a decent side but I would like to think we would win this one..

    Yeah SL is favorite. I would like to see us giving SL run for their money. BD is in a stage now that the players and fans can not and should not be satisfied with only 'oh we played well but lost'. I see this tour as a golden opportunity for us. Hope they dont bottle this.

    The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art.

    Backing BD for this. Sri Lanka just look so weak.

    The Battle Royale of the year. SL will be desperate for a win in the Tests here. Their side just has so many issues right now.

    BD really needs to see this is one of their biggest opportunities to get a test series win under their belt. SL are primed for a loss, and are certainly not in any form that would suggest they would dominate the series like they did v Aus last year following a terrible tour to England.

    I hope SL give young Ron Chandragupta a shot at opening - following his excellent FC season - but with Dimuth K getting a ton it all but seems likely that the Silva-Karunaratne combo will continue.

    Big series for K Mendis, D De Silva to prove the hype they built up last year. For Chandimal - it is a chance to get back into the fold after a terrible SA tour.

    Hoping to see Lakmal continue to do well at home - given that quicks have surprisingly had an excellent shot at wickets in SL in the last few years just as much as Herath.

    Sri Lanka haven't lost a test match at home for a long while now, so a draw will be an achievement for Bangladesh. 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 could turn out to be pretty feisty. The matches could o either way imo. Maybe SL slight favourites but having seen what Bangladesh perform recently, they have a chance. Herath a big factor though, a lot will depend on how Bangladesh batsmen do against him.
