I think BD should bowl first if they win the toss.

Reasons:

1. If it is a lively wicket they can look for some early wickets. Some chance of restricting SL so that BD can feel better when they bat.

2. If it is a purely batsman's wicket ,SL will bat for approx. two days- then BD can look into dragging the game into fifth day and hope for the best: A difficult task anyway, because the wicket may take turn later and there is Murali.

If BD bats first, however, the chances of an innings defeat will be greater as SL bowlers would get rest in the middle.

Agreed that it's a negative way of stategy making: but that's the best I can think of.
