View Full Version : ICC should ...........

Revoke some of our tours (as part of the ten year ICC championship) and put us on probation. They can give BCB and BD cricket two years to come back, play LOADS of first class tours against First lass and A sides and when the probation period is over give a verdict on our future as a full member based on the performance.

Kenya played full tours against A teams and first class sides and have done awfully well (Crushed the Lankan A team actually) and will keep on performing well against this teams before they take on the Test sides. We on the other hands played a couple of matches against England A, MCC and some OD matches against some other A teams. Not enough to get us accustomed to international cricket.

Let's stop being the punching bag for the rest of the world and start playing matches against teams like kenya, Test A teams and First class teams as well as asking our neighbors to allow us to be a part of their first class leagues (for a fee if needed).

What I'd really like to see is tours involving our under 19/17 teams with our neighbors and maybe Australia/West Indies, whoever is willing and available.

Now I believe Kanya is better than BD.

Ahare bangali, Told ya bole je hashi dila. No wonder our boys turn into chicken when they face real men who are patriotic and would go all out for their country.

It's easy to figure out that our boys are really AFRAID of their opponents and are too ready to accept that the guys on the other side are better then them. If only they believed in what some of us here believe in. *sigh*

BANGLADESH (maybe not this rat arses) will get out of this rot and I'd love to see how any god fearing man can even think that they can make fun of my country.

You'll notice that only PROUD/BRAVE nations have managed to excel in the world. Something that has certainly skipped a couple of generations (After 71) in Bangladesh.

P.S. Beshi proud howa abar bhalona. Sheshe emon aachar khabe je bujhe uththe parbena ki theke ki hoye gelo.

Excuse me, but if you would remember it, we had spent 2 years in between the year 1998 till the year 2000 where our board had invited different boards' A teams or other teams to come and play in Bangladesh, and not much reply came.

Also, we had expected or hoped to get invitations to go to other countries for playing first class matches since getting the ODI status which also gave us the opportunity to play against different A teams or other test country's first class teams. And not much invitations had come.

So, the only way to get first class games was to get the test status itself.

And if it means getting all out for 180 odd runs in every innings also GETTING SOME EXPOSURE in the meantime, that we had lacked, then so be it.

We had lots of cricket since test status. We are scoring low and lower. No excuse.

We are not upto the test level. Not BCB, nor these players.

The first few times, everybody were encouraged to do well - motivated to do well FOR THE TEST STATUS that was attained.

But since then, they had seen it as well as us - fans that they had been beaten pretty poorly, so they had lost hope as well as us, and then they had started to perform their average.

And thus, the Bangladesh total started to being average.
