At least it's only a few months before real cricket :)

Thanks for the heads-up. I have updated the series section as well as added a menu there to list the full FTP as we know it.

Useful info. Thx.

I am disappointed that we have to wait till April/2009 to beat the West Indies. I so much want us to play them sooner! Good thing is Lara might be gone by then.

CB should now plan the domestic scheduling, A team scheduling around this schedule. Also take into account of the end of the rainy season as well. Then the player would know when they would get a rest, or make arrangements to play county cricket. :)

The FTP really kicks off at 2008, though playing India in May and Sri Lanka in June in 07 makes the immediate Post World Cup play look really intresting. Nice to see us playing a tri series with SA aand IND And another Triseries with Sri Lanka and Zim.

Give BCB credit for getting 2 Tri Series in 2008

where are the 3 test series???

terrible scheduling. we should tell the indians to go sex up some monkeys and tell them that even if we don't find replacements we cannot host them because the sun will set in west during the scheduled time. our going along with their cowardly insolence only encourages such shitty behavior.

apart from that it seems we are hosting india every damn year and have no matches with pakistan. wtf is up with that?

i am also close to officially adding New Zealand and Sri Lanka to my 'eff em up' list. so far only india belongs to this exclusive list. actually, can't blame the lankans, so the kiwis stay. cancelling our tour like a bunch of babies. i hope our boys kick their *** so hard, it turns red from white, then black.

a lotta home n away series againt the lankans....i reckon a big proportion of the our games would be played against them.... (not that im complaining...just an observation)

but im sure there will be more series' sprining up on the midst of the fixed ftp's...
but it all depends on our performances...
if we can improve our winning habit.. and prove our competitiveness, i bet we will be invited to few more odi tournaments n series, at least...

i believe, the world cricket also wants to cash in the commercial aspects of our success,(like india or pakistan)..but its only upto us to prove our worthiness ..
once we start better cricket, more money will flow in, more offers would be made to play overseas games...

What the hell.......No tests before world cup in 2007??????
That means no test for one year from now. How that can be a schedule for a test nation?
These ICC officials in power r bunch of fags...

They must see the time and number of tests we played. It's not that we failed, but it's taking time like it did for many others. You can't take away a whole year from BD.

why we are not arranging matches with Pak,lanka A teams, it will help us atleast though we might loose. ICC wanted result our team failed to please them, but that doesn't mean that we won't practice. We should practice atleast even with A teams.

wait till 2011, who knows if BD won't improve we won't be playing anything anymore by that time in test cricket.

A Classical "SS" comment. Perfectly poised with pessimism.

How about by 2011, we will be one of the top 5 teams in world cricket mate?
i guess there there two sides of a coin.

Might be very different than what you are thinking as we are hosting India in May!

FTP looks not bad at all. Could be worst...as Sydney said it's up to us now how we develop ourselves to be compititive and prove our worthiness in world cricket.

What? If guys hate the BCCI so much then the India series will be a perfect opportunity to stick it to them! 2007 looking a lot better than 2006!

The schedule's not so bad, as said more ODI's will probably be arranged. Surely Kenya, Scotland and Ireland are deserving of a few ODIs here and ther to beef up the fixture list.
