02.Shahriar (He's experienced and Sri Lanka pace is far weaker compared to West Indies)
Considering the fact that Bangladesh prefer spin over pace and the wicket in Sri Lanka will offer turn lots of it then its certainly possible that Bangladesh will beat Sri Lanka at least in 1 test match. Don't forget that Malinga does not play test matches so as long as we don't use old timers inexperienced ones like Nazimuddin, Junaed, Raqibul, etc then we'll do much better in the coming future. If you don't like Shahriar then try Mithun Ali or Tushan Imran to spice it up a bit.
You mean Tushar Imran, the guy who boasts a single digit average as a specialist batsman? Ya sure that will spice things up. SL bowlers will make him in to a SL spicy cocunut curry dish!
Also your post is pretty contradictory. Your saying you don't want old timers in Nazim, Junaid and Raqibul but want SN? I'd drop SN in your lineup and bump everyone up 1 spot and then bring in Sunny.
