rain seems like a likely factor in the game. people in dhaka - what's your opinion on the forecast. the weather forecast looks bad, but it's hard to say whether these are all day showers or just storms that will come and go?

Considering the rain in mind, it could be a first ever test series draw for Bangladesh.

But, if Bangladesh can manage to get all out twice inside well within 3 days - considering the swing in the air (because of rain - the conditions will be helping the swing bowlers - more than usual) - then Bangladesh can lose both the first test and the second test.

They should switch the venue for the first test to chittagong ....the forecast there seems nice.

i didn't know that any ways thanks for the info...so you telling that cuz of moisture it will swing more in air...yea then we will be in trouble cuz i don't think our seamers or pacers can swing that good like the English bowlers who are consistent and also a good swingers with line and length...but Tapash and Sujon is some matches were good...hope Masree and whoever the third pacers do better than the last series...

Conditions of Dhaka weather are improving dramatically since yesterday (Sunday) morning.

There is enough sun-shine to suggest that there is no reason for the first test morning's play to be delayed.

However, we should all pray and hope that it doesn't rain today afternoon or tonight or tomorrow early-morning.
