Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim is confident that his side can capitalize on a depleted Sri Lankan team and secure a Test victory over their opposition in the two-match series starting in Galle on Friday.

"Sri Lanka is a good team but it's not impossible to win against them," Mushfiqur told reporters on Thursday.  Our younger players are coming through very well and we are very confident that if they put their hands up in the field we'll have a competitive test series," he told reporters on Thursday, according to The News.

Since 2001, Bangladesh has faced the Lankans in 12 tests and lost every one of them.

The site goes on to state that Mushfiqur's confidence stems from the fact that their main nemesis of the past, off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, isn't around to dominate their batsmen.

Muralitharan, who retired from Test cricket in 2010 with a record 800 test wickets, is the top wicket-taker for Sri Lanka versus Bangladesh with 89 wickets in 11 tests.
