Eves' Cricket at Mirpur Today (http://thedailystar.net/2006/06/08/d60608040937.htm)

A women's limited-overs exhibition cricket match will take place today at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.

Two separate selections -- Green XI and Red XI -- will contest in the match for what Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has taken enough security to avoid any untoward episode.

No announcement has been done in advance probably on security reasons.

They are playing with the hard ball or tape tennis? ;) I am sure it will attract more crowds than our regular domestic games

Its summer time. Would they wear shorts like the volleyeball players or soft ball, soccer players? That would be the icing on the cake. They would have more ticket sales than the test matches.

Lets face the reality. Women sports are all about sex appeal. Who wants to see Navratilova when we have Kornikova?

i dont undertsand what r they worried about. there are plenty of women games (even football) in bd without facing any poblem.

btw : shorts for a bigger audience isnt a bad idea. we can use the extra money.
