    Must have to find -

    1. A leg spinner (Not sure who good Zubail is now, that Haider guy is not even club level)
    2. A back-up WK (Liton must play & relieve Mushi from Keeping)
    3. A back-up Test opener (Sadman)
    4. One young pacer to back Taskin & Kamrul

    It'll be a very close Test series.

    Shakib, Miraz, Taijul will get the same benefit of whatever wicket that Herath gets. The only reason Herath looks a better bowler than Shakib is because until 2015, Shakib bowled on dead tracks in Bangladesh - where Herath averages 53 runs per wicket. Shakib has better stats in England, NZ, and South Africa vs Herath. The only conclusion is that Shakib is as good a spinner as Herath at the very least. Probably better.

    Shakib did jack last series. Got a well deserved phainty at 5 RPO. Should thank his stars he missed out against the Shreyas Iyer blitzkreig in the warm up.

    Herath is a world class bowler.

    Well when clean bowlers get banned for chucking what do you expect?

    But more to statsman's point, world class bowlers like Yadav and Bhuvi were tonked all around the ground by pipsqueak Rahim.

    Amir is world class.

    Rolf. Looks like someone is hurt.

    Yadav economy - 3.3, 2.7
    Bhuvi economy - 2.4, 1.8

    Is this the Bangladeshi version of getting tonked around?

    Phainty is what the kid Shreyas Iyer administered to your bowlers and then declared his innings to save them from further embarrassment.

    Shakib is probably one of the better LOI spinners in the world, but his test bowling has been hurt by playing too many leagues and his emphasis has shifted from turning the ball to simply floating it. To be successful in the SC you need to be able to turn the ball because the batsman here are good at playing spin but even the best players of spin will struggle when you really give the ball a rip.

    Anyways, this series should be interesting. BD should look to win some matches and hopefully a couple of series'

    I don't rate him as test bowler for many reasons. His skill set is best for LOI's but not good for test. He can't bowl long spell. He can't reverse the ball. Not so many yorker or bouncer with pace.So if he can't do those he can't be good test bowler.

    He will be available for SL series. But I don't want him in test series. I want him in LOI series. If shahid be fit u would want him first. Then taskin or rabbi can fill other spot. No room for fizz as bd is likely to play another spinner than 3 pacers in sri Lanka.Miraz and taizul is there and I proposed sanzamul in place of Taijul in my proposed team.

    Yeah. Also, his body isn't perfect for tests and him playing may end up being detrimental to the more important cause, his form in ODI's which is most important to the improving Bangladesh ODI side.

    Anyway, how good is Kamrul Islam in your opinion? I liked his slingy action. Has a good yorker. Any idea what pace he bowls at?

    There are some this type of deluded fans everywhere,arguing with them you are trying to be like him. Leave them,don't argue them and be humble. Who understands the cricket knows places of every team or players.Then why argue.

    Rabbi is a good prospect of bd test bowling. Though he is not so pacy,bowls around 135ish,but he can be very good economical bowler like shahid. Learning very fast. That is good sign. Can bowl yorker,can give balaced bouncer now. Have stamina and good line and length. Can be good if he improves and learn reverse.

    I made tamim Captain in my proposed team. I am now seek of mushfiq's ultra defensive captaincy. At least tamim is more attacking than him. I am also fade up with mushfiq's stubborn tendency to keep keeping role. He is the worst in the world and even worse than Liton and nurul of bd in terms of keeping ability. Nurul now is the best keeper of bd. Litton is good in keeping but a TTF in batting. That's why I took Nurul in my team as keeper batsman. He will be good in batting if got chances I am sure.

    If the pitches are as spicy as the last Aus tour I'll give the eastern neighbors an edge, they seem to be in better test form atm, provided they don't surrender in the second innings whilst batting.

    They aren't much better at home, when facing a team that can handle spin like India, Pak or even Bangladesh. They aren't half as good as the 3-0 scoreline against Aus suggested, then there's the "close to retirement" Herath & really if you tackle him well enough SL will lose most games even on home soil.

    I'll be really really surprised if Bangla can manage to draw a single test match. Sl in sl is one of the toughest teams in the world.

    ODI series will be far more competitive though.

    Bangladesh recall Mustafizur for Sri Lanka Tests

    Bangladesh on Tuesday recalled their left-arm fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman in a 16-man squad for the upcoming two-Test series in Sri Lanka after his prolonged injury lay-off.

    The 21-year-old has not played a Test since his debut series against South Africa in 2015 after suffering a series of injuries. He underwent surgery on his shoulder last year.

    While he made a brief return to the limited-overs side against New Zealand at the turn of the year, he was not deemed fit enough to withstand the rigours of a five-day Test match.

    Bangladesh are due to play two Tests against the Sri Lankans — one in Galle from March 7-11 and another in the capital Colombo which starts on March 15, which will also going to be their 100th match in the five-day format.

    They are then scheduled to play three 50-over matches before facing off for two T20I matches at the tailend of the tour, which wraps up on April 6.

    The selectors also handed fast bowler Rubel Hossain a recall after he was ignored for Bangladesh’s recent defeat in a one-off Test against India, meaning there are five pacemen in the squad.

    “We think we would require an extra pacer in testing conditions in Sri Lanka,” said chief selector Minhajul Abedin.

    Opening batsman Imrul Kayes was not named in the squad after he failed to recover sufficiently from a thigh injury picked up in India, but Abedin said he could be called up for the second Test if he regains fitness.

    Squad:

    Mushfiqur Rahim (capt), Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah Riyad, Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Liton Das, Taijul Islam, Taskin Ahmed, Kamrul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehedi Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Subashis Roy and Rubel Hossain.

    We are likely to go with:

    Tamim
    Soumya
    Mominul
    Riad
    Mushy
    Shakib
    Litton
    Miraz
    Taijul(or another pacer if its in Hambantota)
    Fizz
    Taskin

    Very good XI and I think we can pose a challenge to the emerging SL side

    Shakib, Mehedi, Mustafizur and Taskin if they all get on the park would have to be the best Test attack Bangla has ever fielded. Against SL's brittle and out of form batting line-up Bangla are in with a real shot I would say. Bangla batting has been in decent nick too in recent times.

    Very good test team with soumya and Riyadh??!!! Disagree. I would play nazmul and mosaddek instead of them correspondingly.

    With soumya and Riyadh test batting is weak.

    I said we are "likely to go with"

    Riad got runs last match, and Soumya is the only other specialist opener in the side.

    Ideally I would have gone with Shahriar Nafees and Mosaddek.

    Tests- Not sure brother. BD isn't so exciting in tests and the games in SL don't have much crowd either. There isn't much star power in SL
    ODIs- I will watch and so many others because BD is an exciting ODI team. SL youngsters are getting better too and the games will be very competetive.

    In test I am not sure about Lankan fans but all bd fans surely will watch the series as this will be the first time when bd have real chance to win test in Sri Lanka. Our players are also setting their minds to win a or two test matches there. If they can do it will be great prospect for bd cricket and cricketers will get confidence to do well in abroad.( though I think this year bd cricket is doing much better comparatively than previous in foreign soil. There is a sign of getting better in test.) This sl tour could be a milestone for test progress. Hope they do accordingly.

    Sri Lanka include Dickwella, Gunaratne for Bangladesh Tests


    Batsmen Niroshan Dickwella and Asela Gunaratne have been rewarded for their recent limited-overs success with spots in Sri Lanka’s Test squad for the two-match series against Bangladesh starting next week.

    The 23-year-old Dickwella played the last of his four Tests in July 2014. He was impressive in the limited-overs matches in South Africa and Australia this year, prompting his inclusion in the 15-man Test squad, to be led by left-arm spinner Rangana Herath in absence of injured regular skipper Angelo Mathews.

    Gunaratne, who played both his Tests in Zimbabwe last year, hit his first ODI hundred in South Africa last month and also posted two match-winning fifties in the recent T20I series in Australia.

    With all-rounder Mathews missing from the squad, Gunaratne’s slow medium pace bowling could also come in handy against the South Asian rivals, who are ranked ninth among 10 Test teams and two places below Sri Lanka.

    The experienced Herath will also lead the spin attack, which also features Dilruwan Perera, Lakshan Sandakan and uncapped Malinda Pushpakumara.

    Squad

    Rangana Herath (captain), Dinesh Chandimal (wicketkeeper), Dimuth Karunaratne, Niroshan Dickwella, Upul Tharanga, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis, Asela Gunaratne, Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Kumara, Nuwan Pradeep, Vikum Sanjaya, Dilruwan Perera, Lakshan Sandakan, Malinda Pushpakumara.

    Sorry champ have no idea haven't seen him play. Has done well this year and picked up a ton of wickets against the Lions last few days so I guess that's the reason for the call up.

    Just read that he couldnt get into the team because of Herath.

    Hope Dickwella has a good series. He was playing really Well against SA and I expect him to do even better now because he doesnt have to keep. Correct me If im wrong.

    And im not sure bout the seamers. Kumara has been a great addition, but not sure about Pradeep and Lakmal. Altough I like their bowling, their record in test cricket is awfull dont know how many more chances they will get.

    And what about Sanjaya? Saw him getting little bit of away movement from the right handers against AUS, but he was on the slower side.

    Well Herath does take most of the team bus and change rooms. Not a lot of room left for any one else. So I can see why they would say that.

    Without Mathews and a few guys out of form batting is real sus. Hope the new guys fire but they will be up against it I think. Shakib, Mehedi, Mustafizur and Taskin that will be more than a handful for this lot.

    Prasad has been a big miss last few series no doubt. No real leader in the pace attack without him. Sanjaya wasn't too bad in Oz I thought but haven't seen him in FC. Four overs a game obviously doesn't say any thing as far as Tests are concerned. So with the ball it will be all up to Herath and Perera as per usual.

    Having said all that at least Mathews won't be captain. So not all bad I guess

    He bowls slow left arm - but check the FC records in Sri Lanka, lots of spinners have out-of-this-world figures. Chanaka Komasaru, Maduka Liyanapathiranage, Gayan Sirisoma, Chamikara Edirisinghe,
    Dinuka Hettiarachchi - to name but a few.

    All these guys have insane FC numbers, bowling spin in Sri Lankan FC competition must be really easy

Mahmud hope that with keeping pressure gone,mushfiq will do better than before.

    This could be a very, very interesting series.

    Bangladesh - you will not get a better opportunity to beat Sri Lanka than this, with all due respect to my Sri Lankan friends as I genuinely do like Sri Lankan cricket.

    Without Angelo Mathews and still without Dhammika Prasad, BD should fancy their chances. They're doing well in the warm-up too.

    Also I'm delighted that the two Test venues are Galle and P Sara Oval - two result-orientated venues that've produced excellent Test cricket in the last few years. Won't be a repeat of that awful 2014 series.

    Both data is incorrect. Infact Bangladesh has not lost by an innings in the last 3 years 2015-2017 when many other top sides have.

    And Bangladesh debuted in the test arena when there were many top test sides. And oh might as well share the stats of other teams in their early days?

    It's easy to criticize Bangladesh cricket's growth but it goes to show how short-sighted everyone is. Cricket as a sport and culture needs long time to develop. Even a team like India took years to win their first test match. Same goes to New Zealand.

    Even despite everything one can easily say that Bangladesh is probably a better side in tests than West Indies or Zimbabwe all that despite getting lesser funding and are.much newer to the test arena

    Even despite everything one can easily say that Bangladesh is probably a better side in tests than West Indies or Zimbabwe all that despite getting lesser funding and are.much newer to the test arena
    Many of them are playing 4 generations (from father of great grand father) and we still playing first generation (none's son played yet)...cricket is a game that need generations to develop and this thing doesn't go down to throat of many short sighters. Shame on this so called cricket experts who just want to undermine others and make own self top of the world. Leave them bro.


    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
