Please no more matches between India and SL. Boy do I long for the days of India v Pakistan tests in India and Pakistan. Can you imagine the crowd and atmosphere in Kolkata or Karachi for such a match!

Post MisYou Pakistan is probably the weakest Test side in Asia at the moment. They'd get brutalized by this India team. Test would be over in 3 days.

Based on most recent results, yes. However, Bangladesh essentially lose their best bowler and one of their best batters anytime Shakib is out. England fared quite poorly when they had Stokes out of the Ashes, and Shakib's value to BD is probably greater than Stokes' to ENG.

It’s more or less their tactic of preparing shit pitches and spinning out sides who can’t play spin

This won’t work against Pakistan as they’re more comfortable against spin than pace, on a pace friendly pitch they’ll eat you alive inside 3 days.

So yeah I can’t see how you guys beat them tbh

We'll just have to wait till the next BD-PAK series...although I'm not sure if the relationship between the boards is good enough to actually have one. We'll just have to use common opponents. But even in the MisYou era of late, the PAK batting lineup wasn't much stronger than BD's especially in seaming countries like ENG, NZ, SA. Oh wow, just looked up the stats this decade and Bangladesh is actually a fair bit ahead of PAK in batting at seaming venues:

PAK averages 23.73 and BD averages 26.56 in Tests played in ENG, SA, and NZ. And thats with MisYou. Take them out and We probably have a 5 run lead or something.

They kill us on bowling though, so they would win on pace friendly surfaces, but we'd probably bruise their batsmen up a bit in the process.

Finally some good news. 10 years later than it should have been IMO, but if it finally comes to fruition, will be the biggest development in BD cricket since the introduction of central contracts for the top 105 first class players.

90% of the national team players come from Khulna and Rajshahi Divisions, with the other 6 Divisions producing very few. Dhaka alone makes up 30% of Bangladesh's population but only has 1 player on the national team!

CA officially cancel the tour this winter but the BCB is trying to get Australia to tour in 2019 - presumably after the Ashes. At least with the Test league a once-in-15-years tour of AUS or ENG won't get cancelled.
