This time Bangladesh played better cricket. Rusel Arnold praised young Bangladesh team for their courageous action on the field, Batsmen played many eye catching classic shots. At the same time he criticized for poor display of both team too. Match was Bangladesh vs Srilanka. Though he is a Srilankan during commentary he was impartial. The pitch factor is common for both team. The fact is it was a good cricket show, cricket lovers enjoyed the match. Bangladeshis have improved a lot. No doubt near future they will be a strong team. Spectators are waiting to see a spectacular competitive match between them at Colombo.

Bangladesh has improved in batting but not in balling and fielding . Hope BD find some decent ballers soon and then BD will be all set .

Bangladesh have not improved, on the other hand Sri Lanka's Bowling has worsened since the departure of Murli and of-course the pitch had a better say then both the teams. Boycott is rite Pitches like these will kill Test match cricket.
