Sri Lanka are touring Bangladesh to play 2 tests, 2 T-20Is and 3 ODIs.
There were security concerns due to the political situation in Bangladesh, but the SLC are satisfied and the tour is going ahead.
Bangladesh would want to put up a good show to not only build on their recently improving level of performance but also to show the BullyBoys that they are up for test cricket. Sri Lanka are coming off a decent series against Pakistan where their seam bowlers began to deliver some quality performances.
Let us all follow the games as much as possible at least the scorecards regularly, in solidarity with the very game of cricket that is under BullyBoy threat.

First test underway at Mirpur. Sri Lanka won the toss and are bowling.
Bangladesh openers Shamsur Rahman and Tamim Iqbal put on 35 for the first wicket, but then they lost their way as they slumped to 59-4, with Tamim, Shamsur, Marshal Ayub and Mominul Haque all gone. But Shakib Al Hasan and skipper Mushfiqur Rahim have put on 72 so far for the 5th wicket to revive Bangladesh. Shakib on 46, Mushfiqur on 31.

Bangladesh 142-4 with Shakib on 53. Good innings from Shakib at a crucial time.
On a larger context, how could the boardroom idiots deny the likes of Shakib to world cricket?

Shakib leaves the job half done though, as he's out LBW to Herath for 55. Nasir Hossain joins his skipper. Bangladesh 149-5. Sri Lanka back in control.

Nasir Hossain goes without providing much resistance as Eranga gets his third. Nasir was out for 5, edging to Chandimal behind the stumps.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 232 as Sri Lankan seamers, Suranga Lakmal, Shaminda Eranga and Angelo Mathews shared 8 wickets among them. Eranga took 4 wickets while Lakmal chipped in with 3. Mathews took out Marshal Ayub with an excellent delivery. Rangana Herath took a couple of wickets.
The Lankan openers have started well, and they are 24 without at the moment.
After the improvements of last year, a disappointing first day of test for Bangladesh in 2014.
What it again shows, is that they have to play more, and not less test cricket to improve.

The Bangladesh seamers, Roviul Islam and Al-Amin Hossain have produced a good deliveries, but they haven't been able to do it consistently. If Bangladesh can't strike with the new ball, they could be in for a couple of very long days.

Sri Lanka finished the day at 60 without loss, with Kaushal Silva on 30 and Dimuth Karunaratne on 28.
Sri Lanka in a very dominant position. They would be glad to see that the turn around that their seamers started in the Pakistan series is being carried on. They would need their seamers to come to the party more often now, as there is no Murali to produce the magic. 3 years after the great man retired, the Lankan seamers are starting to put together consistent performances.

Just the one wicket for Bangladesh in the morning session, and unsurprisingly, it was Shakib Al Hasan who produced it. Dimuth Karunaratne went for 53, but Kaushal Silva has looked good and Kumar Sangakkara joined him, and they went to lunch at 139-1.

Sri Lanka 334-3. Mahela and Chandimal at the crease. Sangakkara missed out on his hundred as Al-Amin Hossain got him to edge to Nasir Hossain at slip for 75. Kaushal Silva was out LBW to Shakib for 139.

The last 2 overs of the day produced a couple of wickets for Bangladesh, Shakib got Chandimal clean bowled for 40, and the nightwatchman Suranga Lakmal edged Sohag Gazi to Nasir Hossain in the next over as SL went to stumps at 375-5 with Mahela Jayawardene batting on 42. Sri Lanka already lead by 143.

Jayawardene a true average booster...

SL declared with 730-6 with Jayawardene scoring an unbeaten 203. Bangladesh are 35-1 at stumps in their 2nd innings.
It has been a sorry performance from Bangladesh. But what it proves is that they need continuous exposure to test cricket. They have been very competitive In tests since 2012 and more and more players were starting to put in good performances. But again they had not enough test cricket last year, and after the NZ series they didn't have enough cricket at all.
Saving this game from now on is very difficult, but I hope they put up a better showing with the bat in the 2nd innings, and comeback well in the next test.
A more lively track wiuld also help.

Bangladesh finished their most disappointing test in the last 2 years with a massive innings and 248 run loss. They were bowled out for 250 in their 2nd innings. Dilruwan Perera took 5 wickets for Sri Lanka. Mominul Haque made 50 and Shakib Al Hasan and Sohag Gazi got starts without converting it into anything substantial. Al-Amin Hossain slogged his way to 32 to delay the end just a little bit.
Very disappointing that the Bangladesh batsmen gave up so early in the 2nd innings. They all came in, played their shots for a while and got out. None of them showed the willingness to graft and put up a fight.

The 2nd test starts tomorrow. Bangladesh would want to give a better account of themselves after a horrer show in the last game.
Sri Lanka would want the series to finish on a high unlike the previous against Pakistan where they took the lead and played well for 3 days only to give the advantage away as they got caught in a pool of negativity that eventually resulted in a fine 4th innings chase from Pakistan.
Sri Lanka go into the game with 2 of their key bowlers, veteran Rangana Herath, and seamer Shaminda Eranga missing out with injuries. Nuwan Pradeep and Ajantha Mendis should come in.
Bangladesh have dropped Robiul Islam, and one of Mahmudullah and Abdur Razzak should come in. Marshall Ayub is out with an injury, and Imrul Kais will make a test comeback.

SL won the toss and are batting. As expected, Pradeep and Ajantha Mendis come in for the injured Eranga and Herath.
Bangladesh picked 3 seamers for the first test, this time they have gone to the other extreme , dropping Rubel Hossain as well as Robiul Islam, and bringing in left-arm spinner Abdur Razzak and all-rounder Mahmudullah. Imrul Kayes is in for the injured Marshall Ayub.

After losing their openers before lunch, Sri Lanka are now hitting back through their experienced pair of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene. From 49-2, they have taken their side to 111-2 at the moment. Sanga on 36, Mahela on 29.

Sri Lanka lost 3 wickets in the last session but Kumar Sangakkara's unbeaten 160 took them to 314-5 by stumps. Mahela made 72. Shakib took 2 of the 3 wickets in the final session, and Mahmudullah separated Sanga and Mahela by getting the latter LBW.

So Bangladesh, the most pathetic Test nation ever, are only in Test cricket so rubbish flat track bullies like Sangakkara and Jayawardene can boost their averages. 

Sangakkara has very little talent.

Gerry, Bangladesh certainly hasn't been the best ever test outfit, but not sure I can agree with your take on Sangakkara. He averages a not too shabby 48 against South Africa. His record in South Africa isn't great, but it isn't atrocious either, with an average of 35.

SL 533-9. Kumar Sangakkara going strong on 277. Shakib Al Hasan has taken yet another test 5for. But Things really not falling to place for Bangladesh in a team sense, not enough support for Shakib from the rest of the bowling unit, and Sri Lanka has racked up a massive score. Bangladesh had Sri Lanka reduced to 405-7, but Ajantha Mendis made 47, and together with Sangakkara, he put up a hundred partnership that took them beyond the 500 mark.

After Kumara Sangakkara's 319 took Sri Lanka to 587 in their first innings, Bangladesh had a terrible start when senior batsman, opener Tamim Iqbal went for a 4 ball duck. Imrul Kayesand Shamsur Rahman prevented any further damage and took their side to 86-1 at close. The job isn't even started for the 2 batsman though!.

Flat track bully Sangakkara strikes again!

A meaningless Test match triple hundred. 

Sangakkara has the highest number of hundreds against Bangladesh(6) and an average of 95. 

It's high time stats against Bangladesh are considered as first class only.

Overnight batsmen Shamsur Rahman and Imrul Kayes made hundreds, put together a 200+ partnership for the 2nd wickets, but late wickets then brought Sri Lanka back in control of the test at the end of day 3. Shamsur made a solid 106 and Kayes made 115 and they denied the Lankan bowlers for the first half of the day. But then ones Shamsur was gone, Sri Lanka found a way, and though Shakib Al Hasan (50) and Nasir Hossain (42) got starts, they couldn't convert it into something more substantive. Ajantha Mendis took 4 wickets and Dilruwan Perera took 3 as Bangladesh ended the day at 409-8. Mahmudullah is batting on 30, and he has to somehow drag the Bangladesh first innings a bit further. Bangladesh have avoided the follow-on, but there is a long way to go if they are to save this game.

Bangladesh lost the only remaining recognized batsman Mahmudullah for his overnight score of 30 and they were eventually bowled out for 426 in their first innings. The Lankan openers failed again as Mahmudullah made amendswith the ball. When Shakib Al Hasan pinned Mahela Jayawardene LBW before he could get going, Sri Lanka found themselves in a spot of trouble. But Kumar Sangakkara was in no mood to oblige, and he followed his first innings 319 up with 105 2nd time round, and Dinesh Chandimal then found form with an unbeaten hundred. As Chandimal reached his hundred, Angelo Mathews declared the Lankan 2nd innings closed at 305-4, setting Bangladesh a target of 467. The Bangladesh openers, Tamim Iqbal and Shamsur Rahman survived the remaining 8 overs of the day as they went to stumps at 12 without loss.

Sangakkara's scored 35 Test hundreds. 

29 are in Asia. 

He's scored nearly 20% of his Test runs against Bangladesh. Plus a further 5% against Zimbabwe. 

Sangakkara's no more than a very good flat track bully.

How many did Gavaskar score in Asia? That's where your argument falls down.

Sangakkara's no more than a very good flat track bully.


How many did Gavaskar score in Asia? That's where your argument falls down.
Gavaskar scored 19 hundreds in Asia 
15 outside Asia. 5 in Australia. 2 in England. 7 in Caribbean. 1 in New Zealand.  

Gavaskar is hailed as one off, if not, the best openers of all time.

Sorry, but exactly my point. Sangakkara was better than Gavaskar.

Gavaskar H 50.16-----A 52.11..Overall. 51.12


Sangakkara H 63.27 ---- A 51.55---- Neutral 62.00. Overall 57.45

But bowling quality for the eras must be accounted for.

Different eras of play, but stats don't lie?

I'm not sure what your obsession with averages is.

Gavaskar averages 51. He mixed with the legendary West Indian pace battery. And Australia and Pakistani quick bowlers. 

Gavaskar didn't get freebie runs against Bangladesh or Zimbabwe
