Default I Expect on Day 3 of 1st Test Vs Wi

Well, even people understand that we have to play at a slower rate than ODIs, but looks like we all have varied bottom lines there...so, when we don't see someone meeting that, we start criticizing his approach, what's your bottom line /Expectations on Day 3 of this test?

1. Rotation of strike and maintaining a particular RR is Mandatory, I want us to look competitive.
2. if they can play another 90-120 overs & avoid follow on and create a chance for a draw, I'm happy.
3. If we can bat even next two days/160-180 overs and still hand over a 100 run lead to the opponents, I will be happy, because then it will be a sure draw....
4. Staying in the wicket isn't important if they can add Quick runs like TI/SN to reach around 500, I'm happy, because we want to win.

it should be what you expect.... And as fan, I should bring my desire down to realistic expectation....
One should consider the situation in the match and what a team like BD ideally should expect to do at this situation...well it may not be 100% realistic as well...that will complicate things... and I'm not asking for a prediction...

I hope we avoid the follow on. We don't have batsmen capable of lasting the entire day. Sad but true. It's not like we have JO or Rajin in the squad. These boys will play shots, score fast and get out.

Realistically , we all know that these boys will screw things up but would expect them to at least try to save the match and play for a draw.

Of course we will love a win but we know that it's simply impossible for them.

I want a draw match. It is not possible for our bowlers taking 20 wickets of a Test match. So if they can draw I'm satisfied.
