    Another flying Test

    Before everyone forgets, Muralitharan massacred the Bangla tigers yet again with 6/18 as they were skittled out for 86, Bangladesh's lowest test total, in the second innings as they suffered yet another innings defeat. The match didn't even last until lunch on the third day at Colombo.

    Habibul Bashar played a lone hand, making 84 of his team's 188 in the first innings after they were sent in to bat by Atapattu. But Bangladesh, at one stage, were sitting pretty at 150/2 and should have aimed for a total of 300. None of the Sri Lankan batsmen really capitalised on the Bangladeshi "attack" as Sri Lanka declared at 370/9 with Dilshan top-scoring with 86. With Mortaza and Baisya absent, it was all left to Mohammad Rafique who picked up 5 wickets.

    Another rapid defeat for Bangladesh, but before the knives got unsheathed about their Test status, Atapattu backed his opponents and felt that they should be given the chance to compete with the bigger teams.

    If you're reading this when another test match involving Bangladesh is happening, I suggest you keep an eye on the score. The game could get over by the time you finish reading here. If it is a one-dayer, you perhaps do not need to worry.
