After SL's comprehensive win in the 1st test, it's hard to see Banglas managing even a draw.

Which makes laying both the draw and Banglas (or backing SL) the way to go.

Chittagong produces results when it doesn't rain, which it won't at this time of year. Still a concern that SL will be more concerned with batting Banglas out of the game than winning.

Draw very much depends on how long Bangla bat this morning. Bat another 15 overs and put on 45, then SL bat to almost lunch tomorow, giving Bangla an unreachable target.

Can't see Bangla bowling knocking off SL quickly enough to give themselves a sniff and SL certainly won't give them one.

Yeh I'm pretty much thinking along the same lines. Mathews will not give them a sniff after the Pak game. However, Banga could self destruct 2nd dig as playing out time isn't always their strong suit!

Indeed, Bangla could fail to bat 60ish overs day 5, but in recent matches here Bangla have done OK 2nd Inn.
Report johnnie allen February 6, 2014 11:22 PM GMT
SL 2.64 looks very short to me since they only need a draw to win the series and obvious from the series against Pak. that that is all they care about. They will bat well into day 5 before declaring which means a good chance of a draw and if they don't bat well into day 5 then Bangla will have a chance to win. SL haven't won an overseas series for over 10 years I think read somewhere.
Report pxb February 7, 2014 7:34 AM GMT
SL have upped the run rate, but still don't see a declaration today. Earliest I see it is after 20 overs tomorow.
Report teo813 February 7, 2014 7:47 AM GMT
Back the draw now at evens, lay the draw when SL complete their innings, hopefully at much lower price is my strategy, it looks like you think the same way pxb.

any ideas what the weather will be like for tommorow? Not sure if Bangladesh will have the patience to survive 90 overs here.....SL will look for at least 2 wickets tommorow morning session

Also im not sure if Bangladesh really care losing a series 0-2 or 0-1, a loss is still a loss. If thats the case for me , SL @ 2.16 is tradeable
Report Asparagus Man February 7, 2014 2:16 PM GMT
Disagree with that West Coast - Bangas will be very happy to get out of this with a draw.

A drawn games seems to be about as high as they set their sights these days - I genuinely don't think the series will cross their minds.

Lot to do with mental strength - lose a few wickets early and they will fold.

Bangas 2nd innings efforts at this ground last 5 tests:

173-3 (48 overs) Drawn
275 (82) Lost
119-3Dec (42) Drawn
331 (124) Lost
301 (75) Lost

I have two questions:

1) How can Bangladesh win this game?

2) How can there be a draw?

I'm not familiar with the details of test cricket.

Bangladesh's track record in the fourth innings will not infuse them with too much confidence. They have been bowled out 12 times in 18 innings, and have lasted more than 90 overs on just three occasions
Report West Coast Eagles February 8, 2014 2:00 AM GMT
In their last five completed fourth innings, they have been bowled out three times, twice for under 200. The last time Bangladesh played more than 90 overs was against England in Chittagong three years ago.
Report West Coast Eagles February 8, 2014 2:04 AM GMT
Bangladesh batting first up survived 119.5 overs. Im still not sold on them batting the full 90 overs today, I think backing SL is still the value at 2.24 with a view to trade lower. Bangladesh dont have the fight or technique in my opinion to play defensively all day..................

Report jucel69 February 8, 2014 2:08 AM GMT
The odds normally move a lot in the first few overs in a position like this. 1/2 hr without a wicket and u may see 1.5. Then it's a good opportunity as u have 2/1 in SL for 85 overs rather than 6/5 for 90.

One thing for sure is they will be more than 5 wickets down at the end of the day and backing the draw will have some definite squeaky bum moments. There were a few close calls last night & the Bangas are not known for their defensive play!

I should be massively up on this game. I tried to lump on a lay draw at 1.2 ish but the second wicket fell whilst the bet was going through. I took that as a sign, like the fool I am!Angry. Still in a good position but could have been huge!
