guys i just wants to said to ashraful please if bangladesh won the toss please choose to field first. then atlist this game can go in 5 day match or could be drew. because if srilanka bat first then they can get 400 runs and then if bangladesh saved the follow on that mean srilanka have to bat again .whatever is lead, if our batsman try to play good innings maybe we can win or lost by 80 runs .

I understand your point of view. However choosing to field to first will not create a miracle and some how make Bangldaesh win the match. In order to win we must bat, bowl and field well regardless of what we choose to do if we win the toss.

Exactly spot on there mate, you hav to play gud in all departments from bowling to batting to fielding in order to win.

do u think toss really matters for bd??

if opponent bat first they will score 650 + and declare (last ind test) and if bd bats first they will score less than 150..so how does toss gonna help unless their top order learn how to bat long hours in test cricket??...i think this would be another 3 day affair unless some miracle happens

toss matters at kandy to prolong the inevitable. May be even innings defeat can be saved.

If we opted for three specialised bowlers then it would be suicidal to field!!

guys i just wants to said if bangladesh win the toss they must should be take field first .this will be really help to go this test match in 5 days or drew . if srilanka get 400 runs our team could be saved the follow on and that mean srilanka have to bat again .whatever is lead if our batsman try we can win , or lost by 90 runs.

Taking field or decide to bat should always be decided based on the condition of the pitch. If you can't read much about the pitch or unsure about anything, you should always choose to bat first. So you know anything about the pitch for the 3rd match?

mods i fail to see the utility of a post like this. unless from a bangladeshi pessimestic fan who perenially posts such garbage to vent off frustration. i think i warning is in order here.

I know that pesimism from someone who's not Bangladeshi seems really harsh, but what he said is not impossible. We are known to loose both ways in tests, so I guess we have to live with this untill we prove people otherwise. But I know that opting to field first may bring some refreshing change to our batsmen's approach and hopefully that will take the match to the 5th day.

Kandy is a seamer's pitch from what i gather. Bowling first would probably be the right option, but then maybe we need an extra pacer. Rasel may just get a call up into the main 11.

Toss is going to be a really big thing in Kandy and I hope they chose to field first and have three performing seamers!!

I second that.

Pure trollism from an Indian fan from Nepal living in Bangladesh. MysoreHuli is another one, though she's probably from India. They're still sore about the WC07 whoopin' and just can't let us forget that with their mean-spirited posts. IMHO, they can learn a thing or two about "class" from our Lankan cousins in this forum, bless them, not to mention fellow India fans like Surfer, Gangu, bengalipri and DJ who's also from Nepal if I'm not mistaken.

See? No jibes about Nepali cricket or what the Maoists think of Bollywood movies and India fans ... not too difficult to be civil and feel better about yourselves.

It is always said that if one wins the toss then they should elect to bat first in a Test match. Remember all the hoopla during the last Test with India where we chose to field first?

Now that we did horribly bad during the last two Tests batting first, shouldn't we elect to field first this time? I am really confused.

These are all good batting tracks, Ash will field by default because of the T1D1 and T2D2 but I see Lanka winning the toss anyway.

if bangladesh wants to do somethings better in 3 rd test definitely they need to field first. we hope ashraful will choose field first.

haha... i think we SHOULD field first... because then the wicket will settle down more... and it will become more batsmen friendly... and since these are batting tracks.. i think we can cope up with it later... just like we did in the second innings of both the matches...

it is a gamble for our team.. but i wuold choose fielding first... and hopefully ash will choose the same thing... i just hope they all click at the same time... coz bd CAN bat really well... just that they arent doin it:S:S
