M. Ashraful has scored 5 of those 11. The others are Mushfiqur, Shakib, Imrul, Shamsur Rahman, Mominul Haque, and Nasir Hossain

Win the test series. All be happy. Past forgotten.

Then again, what’s there to be sad about losing a tri series final involving Zimbabwe as the 3rd team, come on. It’s bit obvious it be bd v sl final. If it was involving Pakistan or West Indies, now thst would’ve been a tougher much quality tri series, and if then lost would’ve hurt a bit because bd wernt guaranteed final, no offence to zimbros.


Anywa, back to this test. Win toss bat first. Get more than 500.

anyone who thinks we've a half-decent chance of winning the first test with only two decent bowlers is deluding themselves.

our batting might be comparable, but their attack is much better, and on paper, ours isn't good enough to pick 20 wickets.

might be worth watching only to find out how riyad captains and how well mosaddek bats.

No pressure.... we don't care who plays or not.... as long as they give us a good fight and may be a win.

1. Tamim Iqbal
2. Imrul Kayes
3. Mominul Haque
4. Mushfiqur Rahim
5. Mahmudullah Riyad(c)
6. Mosaddek Hossain
7. Litton Das(wk)
8. Mehedi Hasan Miraz
9. Mustafizur Rahman
10. Taijul Islam
11. Rubel Hossain

Mominul Haque can bowl decent SLA, he can be the third spinner. I think this is a decent squad. Even though I would have preferred Subhashis Roy and Nurul Hasan in the Squad. can't do much about the Shakib Situation i guess. contrary to what many people think I think Bangladesh has what it takes to win this, even with this squad. What happened in the Tri Series was, we were playing with 2/3 players short every match, it was Tamim + Shakib who set the tempo/bailed us out with the rest chipping in. Bangladesh got a little too complacent in the final two matches and paid the price. It happens! time to move on.

This guy can't even be responsible during crunch moments, now he is captaining. Already we are one batsman down. It did not work for Tendulkar why it would work for Riad.

http://www.thedailystar.net/sports/bangladesh-cricket/mahmudullah-riyad-did-not-want-it-way-1527343

On another note, last few tests it was always Sangakarra who made the difference between two sides. He single-handedly won many tests or ensured the platform or led his team through against us. Without him this C-grade team should not have any respite in our home ground with or without Shakib.

Best possible lineup under current circumstances.

Although i think team management may consider someone else for Taijul. But who knows maybe this was Taijul's opportunity to step up. Surely must have picked at least a thing or two from Sunil Joshi?

Not a bad squad compared to the opponent, who seems a grade lower in both bat and bowl. The only strong area for Lanka they might be better fielders as a team.

If 1-7 all makes enough runs and 8-11 all picks up wicket including 1/2 more wickets from no. 3 and 5. We should be all set to win the first one with some competition and the second one at much ease.

Performance wise on paper we are ahead.

We need to keep our calm and sail through the mind game. If 1st or 2nd day performance is not up to the mark, in case we collapse or Lanka builds a stronger partnership, we should not lose hope. It is a long 5 day to exploit, we need to show grit and temperament. This is our home turf. We beat AUS recently. We beat this team in their home. No way if we give 100% they have a chance.

You are very welcome bro.
I'm from Colombo, Sri Lanka and I've been following cricket from my early childhood. I've been in this forum since July 19, 2005 - coming up 13 years. :)

Awesome. Hope to see you posting more. :up:

They taste different from South Indian dishes mainly due to the use of coconut milk.

By the way, South Indian food is very commonplace and popular in Sri Lanka.

By South Indian I mean Malabari (Kerala) and Coastal Tamil cuisine, they use coconut milk too. South India is very diverse when it comes to food habits, culinary traditions, I should have cleared it in my last post.

Your pics are a delight btw, had my dinner an hour ago and now hungry again, I blame you lol.

The last one is roti with katta sambol. Roti is firm and not flexible (floppy) like dosa.
By the way dosa is very popular in Sri Lanka too.

In Staten Island where I am from, they have so many Sri Lankan restaurants. I have tried a few.

Oh, you are absolutely right. Sinhalese food has a lot in common with Kerala. They use coconut milk / grated coconut kernel in Kerala too, just like we do.

More on Gamini Silva:

Silva is a Sri Lankan who is now Bangladesh Cricket Association’s (BCB) chief curator. He has been here for the last four years and is in charge of all seven cricket grounds in the country. Cricket allows him to relax, and this bit of relaxation he deserves thoroughly, for he led a life of enormous struggle, danger and pain during his youth.

Katta sambol is made with dried red chili (or chili powder), red onions, Maldive fish, a dash of lime juice and salt mixed well and pounded (using a mortar and pestle).
This preparation without Maldive fish is called "lunu miris", which is the version I eat.

Traditionally, ZACS stadium is more sporting, a more even contest between bat and ball. Who knows, Tan-bear and Fizz can work in tandem to dismantle the SL middle order woth the slightly older ball

I actually stayed with a Lankan researcher for 2 weeks at his home. I cooked for him and he cooked for me also. Most of the time he would put coconut in curry and once he cooked mutton. For the mutton curry he used crushed cumin which he bought fresh from an Indian grocery and used a small coffee grinder.

The fresh smell of cumin mixed with diluted coconut gravy made my day. Enjoyed with some freshly cooked sticky rice.

Our bowling attack looks very weak. Taijul & Rubel are not good enough to be specialist test bowlers. Taijul however plays a excellent support role to Shakib, hence it makes sense to have him in XI. Razzak (as being the main spinner), his not effective like Shakib. Really worried about Razzak./Taijul/Rubel, they are likely to cause us pain during the match.

Only hope is Miraz and Fizz, if only shakib was available that would have been three good bowlers.

It really baffles me how ignorant and plain disrespectful they are about other cultures, a hundred years or so ago movies were used to directly endorse KKK or Nazi ideology, now it has become much more subtle and veiled way of presenting cultural superiority, there will always be one white knight in the shining armor to save poor brown/black people from rich brown/black people. They colonized most of the known world, massacred entire civilizations, destroyed indigenous cultures and yet has the gall to talk about human rights and freedom of speech, this hypocrisy is nauseating.

So with 2015 runs Mominul needs 85 runs to take his avg to 50 if he remains not out
Or 135 more runs to take avg to 50 if he gets out
