View Full Version : Coach's view on BBC has loads of mistakes
May 10, 2005, 11:27 PM
I believe some of you have already posted this (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/other_international/bangladesh/4532731.stm) link somewhere before.
However, did you read them in details and have identified that there are loads of mistakes in that player-profile page; especially in the latter part?
For an example, I think I clearly remember that Enamul Junior is written to be born during 1970 - BBC made him an old man.
Also, Mashrafee Bin Murtoza had his test debut during Zimbabwe tour 2001, not against Sri Lanka 2002.
Also, Talha Jubair did not make his debut last year during 2004, he made his debut during 2002 against Sri Lanka.
These are some of the things that I remember, but there are other (careless?) mistakes there.

Here (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/other_international/bangladesh/4523289.stm)'s another mistake: When did Shahriar Nafees make his debut against NZ & SA during 2004? Never seen his name on the scorecards before.

And they have made Mushfiqur Rahim into (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/other_international/bangladesh/4523041.stm) Khaled Mashud who made his test debut during 2000 vs IND & ODI debut during 1995.
I guess BBC could make little mistakes like confuse Mushfiqur Rahim with Mushfiqur Rahman since both of their names are similar, but are such huge mistakes tolerable? Has anyone emailed to the BBC citing all these mistakes?

Hailing from a country town called Sialet
I think a mistake such as this (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/other_international/bangladesh/4532393.stm) is tolerable, since it is the name of a city, but since majority of Bangladeshis who live in UK, are from Sylhet. What will they think? I think 2nd or 3rd generation Sylhetis won't even understand or realize that there is no place called 'Sialet' and that it is actually meant to be 'Sylhet'.

I'm tired of showing all these mistakes. There are a few mistakes in Talha & Shahadat Rajib's 'FactFile', too.
What is more discomforting for me is that there are too many mistakes in our pace bowlers' factfiles, and I hope & pray that our pace bowlers do 'great many things' so that these mistakes do not happen the next time they go to England.

No I haven't.
