Big picture


The last time Bangladesh and Sri Lanka met in a Test was in March 2013, at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo with long grass on the outfield. Tamim Iqbal went off in a huff after failing to get the ball to the boundary more times than he would have liked; match referee David Boon strolled out to talk to the curator, telling him to keep it consistent throughout the game. Sri Lanka managed to win the Test, and the series, but the game wasn't without its share of fun.

Bangladesh-Sri Lanka contests have not been fun, except for those cricket fans who like heavy thrashings and batting records. That has been the real story of these two teams since 2001. Over the last three years, the big defeats have lessened but the batting records have continued.

In the first Test of the 2013 series, however, some of the batting records went Bangladesh's way. Mushfiqur Rahim scored the country's first Test double-hundred, while Mohammad Ashraful made 190, his highest Test score. Ashraful had actually been a central figure as Sri Lanka used to be his favourite opponent, the only team against whom he has scored more than 1,000 runs. But now he is no longer a part of the Bangladesh set-up, having been embroiled in the BPL corruption controversy.

The focus has shifted to the likes of Mushfiqur, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, and over the last twelve months to Nasir Hossain, Mominul Haque, Sohag Gazi and Robiul Islam. Bangladesh have a string of performers, all of whom have done something significant in the last 18 months.

Sri Lanka will rely on the stalwarts Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, but Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal are the newest Sri Lankan leadership pair that Bangladesh will need to watch. The form of the openers Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne is impressive, as well as the threat that is posed by Shaminda Eranga, Suranga Lakmal and Rangana Herath.

If Bangladesh play to form and keep the questions about their Test status away for enough time, they will give Sri Lanka a run for their money, perhaps for the first time.

Form guide


(last five matches, most recent first)
Bangladesh: DDWLL
Sri Lanka: LWDWD

In the spotlight


Dinesh Chandimal started the Test series against Pakistan solidly, but after that 89 in Abu Dhabi, he managed 36 runs in the next three innings. He is in need of some big scores, and would be looking to recall his form against Bangladesh last year when he scored two centuries.

Marshall Ayub missed opportunities to get to a milestone against New Zealand, but in the first Test, he would do well to capitalise should there be a chance. A talented batsman, he has been batting out of his usual middle-order position because Bangladesh haven't found a batsman to replace Habibul Bashar at No. 3 in the last seven years.

Pitch and conditions


Shakib Al Hasan wants to play on a sporting track at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, but curator Gamini de Silva will probably dish out a slower surface. The bounce can be good in the first session of each day, because of the cooler weather and resultant moisture, but the batsmen would be expected to cash in for the rest of the day.

Team news


The major question for Bangladesh is whether they will hand a Test debut to Shamsur Rahman or bring in the more experienced Imrul Kayes to partner Tamim Iqbal. For now, it seems Shamsur is likely to get a look in. There is also some doubt about the third spinner's position, in which case Mahmudullah could replace Abdur Razzak. Yet, there is also the option to play a third seamer, in case the morning conditions on the first day appeal to Mushfiqur Rahim in that way.

Bangladesh (probable): 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Shamsur Rahman/Imrul Kayes, 3 Marshall Ayub, 4 Mominul Haque, 5 Mushfiqur Rahim (capt & wk), 6 Shakib Al Hasan, 7 Nasir Hossain, 8 Sohag Gazi, 9 Abdur Razzak/Mahmudullah, 10 Robiul Islam, 11 Rubel Hossain.

For Sri Lanka, there could be a toss-up between Nuwan Pradeep and Dilruwan Perera. Given the conditions, one would think Perera would be persevered with. However, Bangladesh have struggled against a bowler with extra pace, so Pradeep could return to the squad, after being dropped for the final Test against Pakistan.

Sri Lanka (probable): 1 Kaushal Silva, 2 Dimuth Karunaratne, 3 Kumar Sangakkara, 4 Mahela Jayawardene, 5 Dinesh Chandimal, 6 Angelo Mathews (capt), 7 Prasanna Jayawardene (wk), 8 Dilruwan Perera/Nuwan Pradeep, 9 Shaminda Eranga, 10 Rangana Herath, 11 Suranga Lakmal.

Stats and trivia


  • Robiul Islam is one wicket away from picking up his 200th in first-class cricket.
  • Kumar Sangakkara has the most runs and most balls faced against Bangladesh.
  • Among the current squads, Rangana Herath's 22 wickets is the most by any bowler in Bangladesh-Sri Lanka contests.

Quotes

"Pressure is a good thing for the Bangladesh team. We know that our place in the team is not permanent unless we perform regularly. There are people who are doing well in domestic cricket, and are pushing us."
Shakib Al Hasan, Bangladesh allrounder on the competition for places in the team.

"It looks really good for batting, but you can't predict it 100%. Generally the Dhaka wicket has been slow as well as good for batting."
Angelo Mathews, the Sri Lanka captain on what he expects from the Dhaka pitch.

72/4 at lunch..Not good signs for BD... Hope to see them making runs.Because if they donot do so they will loose by an innings or so...If that happens with the "Big Three" fuss around the corner in ICC BD will surely have a big threat to loose the test status orelse NEW ICC will cut down test series for them..... SL will somehow survive but BD .... There is question mark???

Two tigers are facing each other.

Calm you nerves Shamsur, calm them down, you got this! You are here because you are good, and they are very good also - it is all mind games!!!

We have to prove our self. Good luck Bangladesh.

Mahamudullah is a third class cricketer, I never want to see him in BD team.

Bangladesh well do better. But srilanka in good performer . Bangladesh f to play good cricket . Show the world . Come on Bangladesh good luck

kudos to some SL fans ............still sanga mahela........old guns........get ur new recruit on the trot otherwise things will be like west indies with lots of past legends

Posted by kahvas on (January 27, 2014, 2:37 GMT)

SL and BD call themselves tigers and lions. No wonder these are facing extinction, maybe commiting suicide

Posted by   on (January 27, 2014, 2:34 GMT)

I think Rubel is more capable to getting wicate than robiul. Al Amin should play in the place of Robiul. And mahamudullah in the place of razzak.

Posted by   on (January 27, 2014, 2:10 GMT)

Come on BD let's play test to win against any opponents;forget the past of just to play well and 5 days.Make a u-turn from today and enter into a new era of winning 5 days matches

Posted by FighterKallis on (January 27, 2014, 2:05 GMT)

Bangladesh needs support from other teams to develop its cricket infrastructure.

Posted by   on (January 27, 2014, 2:01 GMT)

Another flat track battle on the offer, Sri Lanka should stack up their lineup with batsman and hope to get 20 wickets out of the track. I still feel that Dilruwan Perera should be picked ahead of Pradeep simply cause they need an extra spin option plus he will bolster the batting lineup. My selection:

1. Kaushal 2. Karunaratne 3. Sanga 4. Mahela 5. Chandi / Vithanage 6. Mathews 7. Prasanna 8. Dilruwan 9. Eranga 10. Herath 11. Lakmal

Posted by IndianCoolGuy on (January 27, 2014, 1:58 GMT)

Great decision and commitment by Bangladesh. Every team in the world tries to give chances to new faces when they play in their home ground except SL. I wish very all the best to Bangladesh. SL treats themselves as favorites here and if they do that, they have to win by an innings otherwise it is like a defeat for them.

Posted by hasa555 on (January 27, 2014, 1:32 GMT)

@Tiger_The_Hunter Don't worry my dear, Some people do comments in a bad way simply because of their aggressive nature. yea I'm quite disappointed with these kind of people. hope you understand. meanwhile this should be grate contest. BD has been lot improve since last 2-3 years. we have to play really well to beat them. congrats to both the team. hope SL wins !

Posted by   on (January 27, 2014, 1:28 GMT)

Good luck BD and SL

Posted by Rosstaylorfan on (January 27, 2014, 1:27 GMT)

My money is on Bangladesh. Coz the kind of attitude has been displayed by Srilanka against pakistan recently ,its hard to believe they are gona win any game.They are epitome of negative approch.All the best to bangadesh its your turn now to screw Srilanka.

Posted by RedGreenTiger on (January 26, 2014, 23:43 GMT)

Big thanks to SL for making this series happen. We Bangladeshis are looking forward to a great series. My starting XI for Bangladesh would be: 1) Tamim 2) Shamsur 3) Marshall 4) Mominul 5) Mushfiq 6) Shakib 7) Nasir 8) Mahmudullah 9) Sohag 10) Robiul 11) Al-Amin

Posted by lionspaw on (January 26, 2014, 23:20 GMT)

I wish all the best for both the teams! Looking forward to an entertaining series. Sri Lanka do not take this series lightly. Tigers are very aggressive at their territory.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 22:46 GMT)

Bangladesh can not take 20 SL wickets to seriously be contention, however, they should have solace, SL bowlers may not be able to do the same, if BD bat with concentration. I see both Tests ending in Draw or SL winning 1-0. SL biggest drawback is its Captain, he is defensive person.

Posted by Baundele on (January 26, 2014, 21:02 GMT)

Bangladesh should take all 4 spin options in Shakib, Gazi, Riyadh and Razzak. Our batting line up is comparable to Sri Lanka's, although the greats like Sanga and Mahela are there. Our spin attack is better. Sri Lanka has a better pace attack; but no great bowler. We just lack test match experience. That is the main difference between the two teams.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 20:58 GMT)

wasnt shamsur the one who missed the century against NZ instead of marshall??!!

Posted by Eat_Sleep_Play_Cricket on (January 26, 2014, 20:57 GMT)

Should be a very easy win for bangladesh. All bangladesh have to do is put some pressure and Angelo will turn into negative tactics just like the 3rd test in UAE. Go Bangla, Show the world that you are much better than Lanka.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 20:44 GMT)

why chandimal still in the team. should be get out chandimal after this seris. tharindu kaushal. upul tharanga, panugga rajapaksa- are some good players are left in the team. i think chandimal is son of high minister of srilanka. and mathews is a poor captain srilanka had ever. his captaincy is worst all odis and test . it is tough challange for srilanka

Posted by Cpt.Meanster on (January 26, 2014, 20:27 GMT)

Time for Bangladesh to show the world why they belong at this level. I wish all the best to Bengal Tigers to give a tough time to Sri Lankan Lions. Battle of the Big Cats has never been this exciting. All the best to both teams. XD

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 18:48 GMT)

I would go with Shamsur and Mahmudulah. Mahmudullah is in better form and a good lower middle order batsman too. Razzak is not a test player neither a t20 player. I do not know why they keep him in test. This is a DO or DIE match for BD. This is the chance to beat SL and show the world that they aint a minor team anymore. if they can beat SL in both matches then they can go ahead of ZIM in ranking

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 18:34 GMT)

Tharindu kaushal took 6 wicket in today match. Hope selectors concern him include to one day squad.

Tiger waiting for Lanka

Posted by Mali-T658 on (January 26, 2014, 18:17 GMT)

Come on, Tigers. Play with stronger opponents like Bangladesh and Zimbabwe every now and then, and help your players, like, Sangakkara, Jayawrdene rack up centuries and skyrocket their batting averages. GO TIGERS!

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 17:34 GMT)

Good time for bd

Posted by Tiger_The_Hunter on (January 26, 2014, 17:16 GMT)

Dear SL_rocks, after BD I am most supportive to SL due to their friendly & professional attitudes towards BD. I think none of the BD comments are attempting to hurt SL fans. Its quite natural that we need to be hopeful & supportive to our team; just like you do for ur team. My stats were not given to compare with SL players'- their recoreds are always been good. It was mentioned just to show our improvements in recent year. However, Thirimanne is not playing this series. If you exclude his stats of 2013, results looks quite identical & comparable, isn't it?

srilanka has to play best cricket to win the game.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 15:31 GMT)

If Chandimal can't score in this series, he does not deserve anymore chances!

Posted by Harmony111. on (January 26, 2014, 15:31 GMT)

Bangladesh are a very good test team along with Sri Lanka. Always interesting to see these 2 teams play. India is always the most boring useless team to watch.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 15:30 GMT)

good luck tigers and SL team ... make it fun game to enjoy ..and good luck new comers ...

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 15:23 GMT)

Which channel will show the tour????

Posted by TheKeeper on (January 26, 2014, 15:19 GMT)

People should not doubt the cricketing skills and captaincy prowess of Angelo Mathews. He is an extraordinary all-round cricketer and the only Sri Lankan captain to bring Sri Lanka even close to a series win in over a decade. I personally predict that Angelo will become the best SL captain of all time. In the last series Pakistan only escaped by the skin of their teeth, but Bangladesh will have no such luck, and Angelo Mathews and his team will go all-out to put any talk of negativity behind them and crush Bangladesh. Go Lions!

Posted by hasib9 on (January 26, 2014, 15:18 GMT)

Play Shamsur and Mahmudullah. Will be a strong team. And drop Rubel Hussain for Al-Amin.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 15:08 GMT)

Ratings will only go so far in predicting the outcome of the match, but to honest why are we trying be 100% on who will win. It's no fun if we know the result. Though what is blatantly obvious is that the bowling side will the matches. On Sri Lanka's side you used to have a wall with dilshan-sanga-mahela, but now its reduced to sanga-maleha. On Bangladesh side we have a a batting lineup to batsmen number 10. Though I don't think there any such think as a wall on Bangladesh's team.

Posted by Sameeratennakoon on (January 26, 2014, 15:05 GMT)

Chandimal will score a century and secure his place for another 2 years. Unfortunately Kusal Perera haven't got a chance. He would have been very effective against Bangladesh bowling attack.

Posted by Warm_Coffee on (January 26, 2014, 15:03 GMT)

Its blatantly obvious Mominul Haque will score a double 100 against Lankans in this series. Didn't he do well in his debut in Sri Lanka anyway? Nasir Hossain loves Sri Lankan bowling.

Posted by Fogu on (January 26, 2014, 14:42 GMT)

@SL_Rockz; good luck to you and SL. I am hoping for a good competitive series. From BD perspective a drawn series is a victory. Because of our record, we have to draw first then look for win. Soon enough we will start winning at home and be more competitive on the road. I don't think this series will be a cake walk like you are predicting. Enjoy the cricket. Go Tigers!

Posted by shanepe2003 on (January 26, 2014, 14:39 GMT)

It's very simple bangalidesh biggest advantage is methews! If bangalidesh smart enough they will attack like PAK did in last inning Mathews will have no answer sink in his negative tactic.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 14:37 GMT)

Bangladesh wickets helped murali have the world record over Shane thanks mr.dalmiya

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 14:28 GMT)

my best team is BD - 1. Tamim 2. Shuvo 3. Marshal 4. Mominul 5. Shakib 6. Mushfiq 7. Nasir 8. Ryad 9. Gazi 10. Shiblu 11. Rubel good luck bangladesh nd we will win this match

Posted by KingAjmal on (January 26, 2014, 14:04 GMT)

I've just noticed that apart from Razzak, the rest of our players in our squad are all in their 20s. Our bowling is the problem but anything other than a 2-0 win by Sri Lanka is a fail on their behalf since they are playing a team known for getting thrashed by innings and struggling against such a team. Anyway Sri Lanka will be tough and Bangladesh must not take them for granted.

Posted by SL_rockz on (January 26, 2014, 14:03 GMT)

No matter how BD players averages Sri lanka is still going to win... These kinda stats always come before the dawn of the series but will never appear after series has begun... These things are mere hallucinations to make your mind believe that you can beat Sri Lanka.. we are cool with it.... Keep posting stats... Reminder.... Add all centuries BD players has scored ...It is still lower than number of centuries sanga or mahela scored...forget all that add all the centuries of your leading batsmen and IT WILL STILL LESS OR MARGINALLY ABOVE THE AMOUNT OF DOUBLE CENTURIES THAT MAHELA AND SANGA HAS SCORED....

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 13:49 GMT)

This is the series which try to grow the confidence as the test team. Against the pakisthan we done very well until the last inning negative mind set cause to loose the game for us. But this time we can start with more positives and Chandimal should prove how better how better batsmen he is, because he need play a good inning and expecting big scores from sanga as well. best wishes for lankans

Posted by SL_rockz on (January 26, 2014, 13:48 GMT)

Kidding me right ....sangakkara has 56.35 average in 120 test matches including 206 innings.... add test innings all those mentioned players played , but it will still be less than what sanga has played.

ahha about 2013.....

mat inn NO Ballls Highest average LD Chandimal (SL) 4 5 2 304 116* 101.33 KC Sangakkara (SL ) 3 5 0 457 142 91.40 HDRL Thirimanne (SL) 3 6 3 268 155* 89.33 AD Mathews (SL) 4 7 2 216 91 43.20 Poor BD!!!

Posted by musfiqur.mishu on (January 26, 2014, 13:36 GMT)

my team is 1. Tamim (vc) 2. Shamshur 3.Imrul 4. Mominul 5. Shakib 6. Mushfiqur (c) 7.Nasir 8. Mahmudallah 9. Gazi 10. Robiul 11. Rubel I think this is the best team as imrul has been in number 3 batsman in bcl and he played good in that position and Shamshur is okay in opening position. Razzak is not in good form and Mahmudallah is in great form in bowling and later he can help with batting too. Ins Sha Allah we will have good series. Good luck Bangladesh from mishu. I stay in Germany after that also i support my team and I watch every Bangladesh cricket match.

Posted by Tiger_The_Hunter on (January 26, 2014, 13:35 GMT)

To add to my previous info, our bowling averages in 2013 were also respectable for the main bowlers

Robiul: 22.05 (8 Inns), Shakib: 33.18 (8 Inns), Gazi: 36.68 (12 Inns)

Rubel failed as usual & his place is in threat.

It proves that, if BD is given level playing field with significant matches, in no-time they will be on mid ranges of ranking table...

Posted by stormy16 on (January 26, 2014, 13:33 GMT)

While SL have run well ahead in these contests the gap has kept getting narrower despite SL winning but the last series in SL Bangladesh gave SL a real fright in the first test. I know alot of people write off Bangladesh and with good reason, but they have some decent players who have been around a while and SL would need to play good cricket to ensure they maintain their winning records against. Chandimal needs a big series for SL and I expect Sanga to come good after his struggles in Pakistan. Pradeep could be an x-factor but will depend on the wicket as there will be no room for a 3rd seamer on spin friendly wickets.

Posted by Tiger_The_Hunter on (January 26, 2014, 13:18 GMT)

Dear BD haters, please lets have a look at some personal batting Averages of BD batsmen in 2013,

Tamim = 42.00 (8 Inns), Mominul = 83.43 (9 Inns), Mushfiq = 54.56 (9 Inns) Shakib = 45.00 (8 Inns), Nasir = 48.38 (9 Inns)

Only Anamul Failed with the Bat in 2013 & he is dropped already.

Those figures in one particular year is not only excellent records but also a dream for many cricket-powerhouses. This also a proof of our increased temperament in TEST cricket. Please learn to appreciate...

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 13:01 GMT)

which indian sports channel is telecasting this match?

Posted by M_Rakibul_Islam on (January 26, 2014, 12:49 GMT)

Enamul has a better record in FC cricket than Razzak. He should've been preferred in the squad. Another point to b noted- BD will miss their best batting per4mer vs SL in Tests. Despite a low batting average (24) in all tests, Ashraful has not only scored 1000+ runs vs SL but also scored 5 of his 6 Test Tons against them.

Posted by SL_rockz on (January 26, 2014, 12:48 GMT)

Sanga has to score in this series...Loved to see him passing 11000 mark quickly...MAHELA ,MATHEWS , DINESH ,KAUSHAL,DIMUTH,PRASANNA.... i WONDER HOW BD FACE THIS CHALLENGE...Guaranteed !!! it is a uphill task...And with the recent performances in UAE it is difficult to believe SL will make any extra ordinary fall down and loose the series... Even SA in struggle in UAE against Pak when they were number 1 in test world....SL face well to draw the series ...and showed a lot of character and new upcoming talent that we preserve in our country.

Posted by SL_rockz on (January 26, 2014, 12:29 GMT)

please insert Mahmuddulah BCB..if not after SL win the match there will be millions of excuses saying if Mahmuddulah play we could have won and vice versa....

Posted by SL_rockz on (January 26, 2014, 12:27 GMT)

Enamul in razzaq out or enamul out razzaq in ....sakib play or not Sri Lanka will Win...

why mamudullah is negleted again ???

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 12:21 GMT)

Yes..Sakib let, s show our capability in recent test cricket would like remember that highest score in 2013 we made..and that was in overses..so ..come on nothing to lose ..hope we will play good cricket then india...in sha allah...

Posted by TheRisingTeam on (January 26, 2014, 12:08 GMT)

Will be a tough test for Bangladesh and they must stay focus throughout the test matches otherwise Sri Lanka will just be over us. I do not understand what's the point of Razzak and Rubel in tests? their records are simply poor and I feel these are wasted selections. I hope Al Amin and Mahmudullah are selected instead since these 2 gives more variety to the side. Another very good news is that the best player Shakib will be playing who btw wasn't part of that Sri Lanka tour last year because of injury so clearly it strengthens the team with bat and ball.

Hopefully unless there are injuries, we will see this 11 - Tamim, Shamsur, Marshall, Mominul, Rahim, Shakib, Nasir, Mahmudullah, Gazi, Robiul and Al Amin.

Posted by kalpurush on (January 26, 2014, 12:08 GMT)

Good luck Tigers. It is about time to win a test match against Sri Lanka and let the "BIG Three" know that Bangladesh is to stay to play test cricket.

Also, a warm welcome to the Sri Lanka team. Thanks much for visiting us and to uphold the spirit of cricket.

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 12:02 GMT)

I want Enamul Haque in the test squad!!!

Posted by MAN_AT_WORK on (January 26, 2014, 11:56 GMT)

Thank's mr. Mohammad Isam for this match Preview I was waiting for this all morning

Posted by   on (January 26, 2014, 11:56 GMT)

why razzak should be in the team islam give me one reason please , mahmudullah should definitely be on the team

Posted by asiacricket1234 on (January 26, 2014, 11:53 GMT)

Razzaq is not a good choice in Test. He has done nothing to prove why he should be picked. Enamul haq should be given a chance. Anyway Good Luck Bangladesh.
