BDFlag Sri Lanka Tour

I know that the tour does not start for a couple of weeks but what are your expectations for Bangladesh? I would be happy with 1 test victory and 1 ODI victory. What about you guys?

Test victory? We will need to get 20 wickets. Can we? I don't think we are there yet. With Murali in the ranks and our brittle and unsettled batting, SL should do that in all 3 tests.

An ODI victory is more likely.

I would be happy with an ODI victory. But I would be completely overjoyed if we can manage to win a Test! But more than anything, I want to see if the players are trying to fix their mistakes and not repeating them over and over again. Also I hope that Ash will do really well as the captain and also a batsmen for the tour. Hopefully he'll be aggressive but also mature. Best of luck Ash!

I don't wanna sound like a loser, but practically, I would go for a shommanjonok har or drawn tests. This is completely based on our Test experience. Plus, we also have a new captain and vice captain, and so get ready for some major mistakes...and get ready to hold your anger in such situations.

In ODIs, I would expect one win.

One test victory is equal to clean 3 ODI sweep even if in reality they loose 2 tests and all 3 ODIs.

oneday and test expectation are two different stories for me .

in odi , i want them to fight neck to neck . at least 1 win is desired . but , they should target to win the odi series .

in test , i would rather be satisfied if i can see some elementary development . they should bat sensibly , not blocking everything nor smashing everything ; but playing each ball on its merit . playing session by session with a plan . and an aggressive planned captaincy . overall , a test-type play is what i want . they shoulod target a draw . but , even that would be very improbable . even after being over-optimistic about anything , i must place my foot in ground right now about this test series .

this tour is going to be very tough , very tough . the srilankans are always too good on their soil . and specially in test , we have many more to learn . however , in odi , i would be very dissappointed if they does not win at least 1 match . they have the ability to win 1 odi , i think .

Two test draw and one win in ODIs and close fight on another ODI - I would take the tour outcome as exceeds expectation / extraordinary.

One test draw and one win in ODI - I would take the tour as successful.

Only one win in ODIs - Will consider the outcome as 'expected'.

No draw and no win - Failure.

We are talking about a changed BD team, right?

Bangladesh? Win a test? How the hell are we supposed to win tests when we barely play any? Just one draw with no help from interruptions would satisfy me.

I want:
Cleansweep series win in both test and ODI's.
The team will come home undefeated in the whole tour, crushing the Lankans in every single possible way.

IN TEST:
Ash scoring a Triple Century.
Mashree getting hattrick with 2 Fifers and 1 Ten-er in a match.
Shahadat bowling at 145+kmph, scaring the crap out of SL batsmen and finishing an impressive series with an average of 19.23 with the ball.
Bashar scoring a comeback century.
JO back to back half century in a back to back century partnership.
SN back in form with 2 half centuries in 2 tests.
Solid rock batting from Rajin.
Rafiq getting his 100th test wicket to complete his odi and test 100's.
Ash winning his first test and first series as captain.

In ODI:
Tamim breaking Afridi's fastest century by 3 balls to complete his first odi ton in 34 balls.
Aftab scoring his first ton.
The offie (Riyad) getting a chance to play and acheiving a fifer in his first odi, thus filling the gap of much needed variety in our attack.
SL bundling out for 41 in the last odi by Mashree's awsome bowling who finishes the day with 7-9, best bowling figure by a Bangladeshi.

Should i carry on??
or
Should i wake up from my dream?

Even if the whole tour is a disaster, one test win against a full-strenght Sri Lankan side will suffice me completely.

1. No buffering.
2. 4 days tests (all three).
3. One rain affected draw.
4. Patience by the players and fans.
5. One ODI victory.

I am not asking too much, am I?
