So basically we are only 4 test matches this year.

Wow no wonder we're taking so long to improve.

Yes, we are having a long lay off this year. And after that who knows.

An unconfirmed source (Janakantha :lol: ) once said BCCB is trying to arrange a series with Zimbabwe in Zimbabwe this July.

Also, Lanka board offered to send their A-team for few matches long back, BCCB kept the tour hanging. International calendar at TigerCricket says it will take place in May, but I doubt that will ever happen.

This DS report (http://www.thedailystar.net/2006/03/16/d60316040126.htm) also says Bangladesh team is due to tour Zimbabwe this July for a five match ODI series (look at the bottom para). But you should not take anything for granted where Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) is involved.

The para also said something about Afro-Asia Cup in November. I don't think that tournament will ever again take place, with Sharad Pawar already making so much fuss over the Champions Trophy.

Sri Lanka A will arrive in BD this week.

Yes, Bangladesh needs more cricket. It seems so unfair that you will end up with only 4 tests this year.
