Tinsel may be a good substitute. ;)

Yeah, but I didn't think we'd get past Afghanistan so I'm okay. I'm happy Ravindra had a good tournament

^^ He was but not bought by any team.

However, Bangladesh 204/2.

Bangladesh usually collapse in one of the session among 15 (3 X 5) and lose the match.

What will happen in this match?

Yes, Mominul has been impressive right from the start of his Test career.
He's got his 2000th Test run in his 26th Test now.
If I'm not mistaken, even Kohli got to 2000 only in his 30th Test.

Tamim is closing in on 4000 now.
Good to see Bangladesh players also having somewhat long careers and clocking up big numbers.
They barely play 2-Test series, sometimes 3.
Sometimes just one-off.

Thanks for this list, Boycs.

Some illustrious cricketers in this list feature AFTER Mominul.
Even folks like Azharuddin who had a superb start to this career.
And Zaheer Abbas who had two big double hundreds early on.
And Lawrence Rowe who started with a bang.

All after Mominul.

Bangladesh will beaten Because both Raja and Leo know of BD’s reality than most of us knows

SL needs To builds lead and declares 40 minutes before tea, rest will be done by Herath and Dilruwan Perera

SL need 3 wickets including out of form, Kayes before ends of day 4[/quote


Yes SL right on TEST MATCHES TREND HERE

BD trailing by 200, lost 3 including Mushy on day 4
Tamim scored 41 but like Raja says kayes will be Out cheaply although they put on 42 odd with out much trouble, so tomorrow Sandakan,Dilruwan and Herath will ruin Bangladesh party for sure

If SRilanka win tomorrow Bangladesh would become first team beaten after scoring 500 runs as many as Three times in test cricket
Axar & Chahal failed to take wicket at Banglore vs Proteas A

Bangladesh still not out of the woods.
Lead is just 79, at least 33 overs to go in this match.
They will need to bat sensibly from here - no panic.

Pitch were superb Cracp were
Lara,hits 375 ( in WI) and 400 not out( in WI ) in two different tests vs England, I am not sure vs whom he hits 501 not out in England

Even Sangakkara hits 319 abd 119 in the same test here at Chittagong some 5 years ago.
2 years ago, Mominul too hits, 203 at chittagong Test from two innings


The 501 was for Warwickshire but I don’t know against whom

I would rather watch a skilful batsman make a century in tricky conditions against good bowling than I would watch a skilful bowler take good wickets on a flat deck. Simply because as a cricket fan I’ve always been drawn to batting as my preferred art over bowling. I admire good bowling don’t get me wrong but if forced to chose I’d rather see a great century than a great five wicket haul.

And sometimes I’m just in the mood to watch asthetically pleasing batsman smash bad bowling on roads. Just like how even someone with a refined pallet might fancy the odd cheeseburger
