We don't rely on one or two players in batting anymore and that is a big plus. If we can get Sanga and Jaywardene like we did in Asia Cup through Nazmul's effort, it will be advantage BD
Ah Bangla fans, saw the same talk last tour in the island and the bashing after.

The cycle never ends.

Australia is better than WI, you ain't.

SL's pace attack is way over-rated. Malinga is great, but he's not the same bowler he used to be. Fernando is is pacy, but he hasn't been able to cement his place in the SL side...he'd never make it past the academy in a country like NZ. Kulla and Angelo don't impress me either, although I will admit that Kulla can be dangerous as he ripped through Australia recently. I don't think he will do that to us. Haven't seen Perera so I can't comment, but he's pretty quick. One pacer of theirs I did like was Suranga Lakmal and I'm not sure what happened to him. He looked better than half the guys they have.

i think Kula will be a threat. Batsmen have to negate his swing. In tests i think Sri Lanka will cream us simply because Sanga/Dilshan/Jayawardene will pile on huge runs on us and we won't know how to dismiss them with the likes of Abul/Rubel/Shafiul bowling. Their bowling attack in tests aren't something to get scared off, its just their batting which is the main worry in tests.

In ODIs we should be able to put up a decent fight.

lol whattathread. The OP's been smoking something for sure. Windies hammered the crap out of us in the tests, and we JUST sneaked passed them in the ODIs. We even lost the one-off T20. And this is all AT HOME. I doubt we'd come close to emulating this in the Windies or a neutral venue.

We barely beat the Windies at home, I don't see how we are that much better than them.

Let's see how we go this year, but West Indies are just as bad as us when away from home. They got destroyed in England in both formats and now trashed in Australia. If we play away from home as often, I am pretty sure we will go ahead of them. We will go ahead of WI in odi ranking if we beat SL, then all our "fans" will start talking about how we are "barely" ahead of them and WI are still better.

It reminds me my thread probably titled "We should be ranked over West Indies" long back.

I would talk about whether we are better only after overtaking them in points. Right now, we are behind.

Yeh, so? They then won the next two games, and we almost blew the final game. Hence we barely won the series. As for your snide remark I am from planet Earth if that helps you out

Sounds like this thread is a mitigating one for the one opened by Windifan claiming Windies did not field the best 11 against BD in the last series......it always evens out in the end.

West Indies are only good at T20s. I think we will surpass them in ODIs in couple of years.

As for Test, we are still terrible. We can't even beat Zimbabwe consistently ffs. We need to fix that fast.

"We are better than West Indies"

Without Gayle I am assuming, after today's performance.
