Bangladesh will take on Sri Lanka in their first home Test of the year at Chattogram on May 15. This year, the Tigers have blown hot and cold in Test cricket, so far. Bangladesh scripted history when they defeated New Zealand in the first Test match of the series at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. But since then, Mominul Haque and Co. have lost three consecutive Tests which include two humiliating defeats in South Africa where Keshav Maharaj ran through their batting lineup. With Shakib Al Hasan available for the two-match Test series, Bangladesh would be hopeful of a better showing against Sri Lanka.
