View Full Version : Scotland to visit Bangladesh in December

Scotland are set to undertake their first ever cricket tour to Bangladesh in the lead up to next year's World Cup.


Craig Wright's side will take on the test nation in at least two official one-day internationals during the short trip in December. The Scots earned the invitation by claiming 12th place in the official world rankings, a position which guarantees a home and away series every year in the ICC's Future Tours programme.

This is a type of tour that gives me chills! Good thing that it's in BD and not in Europe, but scotland has some good players that play County Cricket in England and they played against England this year and looked pretty good scoring 250+.

I think Scotland plaing in BD for the first time will give us a huge advantage so I expect us to win rather easily 2-0. But I'm pretty a 20/20 will also take place and it'll be good practice for the 20/20 WC in 07 as the scots have county players who have played a 20/20 season.

It's not about relegation my friend! Remember, when we were associate member we played with full members too!! It's all about our standard- Scotland wants to learn how to upset the cricket giants from BD!!! Let them be light! ;)

In the current Intercontinental Cup match, Ireland vs Scotland:

Scotland 265 & 24/4 (12.0 ov)

Now, the 265 aside, if Ireland can get Scotland to 4/24, I would say Bangladesh should have no problems at all.

Cannot agree with you brother. It's a regular happenings now. From now on full members will take associate members regularly like SL played with Dutches. South Africa will play with Bermuda and we are playing with Scotland. England already played with Ireland.

Nothing wrong with it!!

Now that's an idea! They could even use their lungis and kilts to catch the ball. It will definately encourage more women to come and watch...which would increase revenue for the BCCB.

Scotland has not qualified for the ODI ranking yet. Requirments for the qualification is to win a match against a full member and to win 60% of matches against other associates, or to win two matches against full member(s). Until they meet those requirments, winning matches against them won't affect the ranking or rating.

Looks like we do have a triangular with them:

The full schedule can be found <a href="http://www.icc-cricket.com/icc/development/associates.html">here</a>

I wonder if this is actually a triangular or just practice matches for the WC. Also, while playing minnows is fine, we should really be getting more games against stronger sides.

The first part is correct but the second part is not. Scotland value is so low that we will not get benefited from the two wins. Like Australia's rating don't change in beating Bd (very little, insignificant amount of increase). Now for some reason if we lose one, we will lose a lot of ratings points.

SCOTLAND!!! mayne datz a waiste of time...if you guys can dominate Kenya like you did then playing against the Scotish team will not benefit you in anyway,

We are going to be playing three ODIs against South Africa...even though we are going take a bit of some stick but at least every player knows whats expected of them and that is to up they game....In a few days time our A team is guna play against Australia Academy and i feel they area better side.
In as much a way as we want to play many cricket games, the quality of the opposition is also important. Remember Zim played against Bermuda nad Canada the other time..well that was good for assessment purposes to see where we were.
BD is slightely over or below Zim so they should be looking at playing the likes of NewZealand, West Indies more

However, Noone wants to play us. Say NZ. We had a tour that I think has been cancelled. I know the competition (scotland at home) is low then again, something is better than nothing and we will be fullfilling our ICC requirements of allowing an associate nation tour us.

I wish that would be the case but since your neighbor is grateful to you but our neighbor(India) doesn't even want to play the scheduled tour let alone an extra one...
That's why I think zimb will prosper quicker than us.
And I have to say BD is better than current zimb team cause we lost the series 3-2 and two of them where very close where as you lost 3-2 to us and all three where very convincing... In between we beat Australia, India and srilanka zimb didn't beat anyone (i might be wrong there).

Nobody wan't to come forward to play Bangladesh and it really shows the true picture of our cricketers(especially batsmen's) failure to show competitive cricket. And our batsmen really are shame to watch sometimes. On the other hand, when zimb is playing against SA and AusA, we could not arrange any games!! not even with A teams of neighboring countries. Just our squad went to Pakistan. But not sure, how effective that will be.
I wish world power and world politics are not so much complicated, when they see a rise of power, they do whatever they can to get rid off it. lanka, Pakistan and now India took their opportunities and utilized it. But we failed, and now we are begging to ICC for tours.
Reality is tough but not to our cricketers(especially batsmen), they had opportunities to let the world know in Zimb series, but look what they did!! now we have to beg to ICC more!!!

yaeh man i agree witchu..B/D Batsmen did let the country down and now its gonna take one hell of a performance at the ICC trophy to win the confidence of the rest of the world like you had done just before the Zim tour. Loosing to Zim must be the worst thing that has happened to B/D cricket in the last couple of years cuz even though you are without a doubt the better side, the odds are against you. A solid perfomance at the ICC trophy is whats needed forget about the two series after as they will not get you the much needed attention.

I didnt know you guys share the same border as India!? i'll have to consult my Atlas on that one...India should back you guys up at least like what S.A does to us although we let them down in most cases;)

we have always been tight with S.A...politically and also in different sporting disciplines. At one point we used to have the best Davis Cup tennis team in Africa we assisted the then weak S.A tennis team. So we always try to maintain good relations, thats why S.A turned down the offer to play England just recently to fulfill the Zim series..and alos they will be looking at winning a couple of matches since S.A looked a bit shacky against Sri Lanka in the past series so they wouldnt want to play the ICC trophy coming from a low note...

Update from Cricket Scotland site (http://www.cricketscotland.com/)-

Scotland’s biggest independent oil and gas company, Cairn Energy PLC, is to be one of the main sponsors for the nation’s cricketers on their December trip to Bangladesh to play two official ICC One-Day Internationals - Scotland’s first on overseas soil - at the start of a three-month preparation for the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

The tour to Dhaka will last for eight days, with the squad departing on Monday December 11 and returning the following week. After some acclimatisation exercises and a warm-up match during their first few days, Craig Wright’s Lloyds TSB Scotland squad will be ready to play these historic ODIs on Friday and Sunday December 15 and 17, at a venue yet to be decided, but possibly in the 36,000 capacity Bangabandhu National Stadium.

* Cairn Energy PLC has been working in Bangladesh since 1994 and produces natural gas from the country’s only offshore field, the Sangu Field, in the Bay of Bengal. For further information on Cairn see www.cairn-energy.plc.uk

Good to see that Scotland already got a tour sponsor. BCB should try to interest Cairn to be one of the tournament sponsors too.

September 29, 2006, 11:20 PM
Hmm...for long we are suffering from Sponsor problem.I often wonder is it the lack of interest from sponsors or (almost surely) the lack of initiatives from BCB.There is no reason that a team like BD which has such big support won't get sponsors.Rather there should be sponsors lined up for grabbing the chance.Sad that due to those red-tape proocedures, nepotism and big-head morons of BCB things get difficult.

Well...not may be all, but definitely there's a big crowd present.

And, regarding the domestic games, may be the interest is not much yet.That is more due to the way we are handling out leagues.

But, no way I can think that there should be no one interested for an International ODI series.

Ok I know some guy here was born in Scotland, so he wants to support both teams etc.. well I've been there several times and it's a really beautiful country with very nice people..

Anyway, the b&b I was staying in had this joke framed on the wall.. It said-

Why Scotland is a Grand Place

In the beginning, The Lord God Almighty, sitting on His throne on high, turned to His mate, the Archangel Gabriel and said "Gabby, today I'm going to create Scotland. I will make it a country of dark beautiful mountains, purple glens and rich green forests. I will give it clear swift flowing rivers and I will fill them with salmon. The land shall be lush and fertile, on which the people shall grow barley to brew into an amber nectar that will be much sought after the world over. Underneath the land I shall lay rich seams of coal.

In the waters around the shores there will be an abundance of fish and beneath the sea bed there will be vast deposits of oil and gas".

"Excuse me Sire", interrupted the Archangel Gabriel, "Don't you think you are being a bit too generous to these Scots"?

"Not really", replied the Lord, "wait 'til you see the neighbours I'm giving them".


If you get the joke, you'll know who that neighbour is and how it sorta applies to Bangladesh also. :p

Don't forget the last time Bangladesh played Scotland, in 2004, it was 1-1.
The scoreboard of the 2nd game is on this link:

True Bangladesh will be firm favourites at home, but Scotland are improving - as they proved by playing Pakistan (it was Ireland who played England) this year and reducing them to 93-5, chasing 204. Gavin Hamilton is still in the team, but the captain is Craig Wright. As well as Hamilton, Dougie Brown is another who once played for England. The two games should be well worth watching.

Welcome jonscotland.
I have few questions for you.
How many of your players played in subcontinent pitch? How much experience do they have in the subcontinent? Are any of your batsmen that good who can play at any surface? How does your spinning attack look like?

It should be a good series. I'm really looking forward to it. Hopefully Channel-i or someone will show it on TV?

In response, Scotland have very little experience of subcontinent wickets. Plenty of experience playing in Dubai and Sharjah, though I know this is very different.
Maybe Brown and Hamilton have played on English county tours to the subcontinent, but apart from that, the only experience would be things like under-19 World Cups, junior tours to India.
The spin attack is one of our strengths. Two young guys, left-armer Ross Lyons and off spinner Majid Haq have both taken regular wickets in matches against English counties, and Lyons got the scalp of Shahid Afridi against Pakistan in June.
Ryan Watson, the best batsman at No.3, is also a part-time off spinner.

the difference between the 04 bangladesh team, and the team now is like night and day. for scotland to not have won that series 2-0 is slightly dissappointing as both teams were of relatively equal strength.

but the current bangladesh team? we'll let the scots see if they can keep the game within 100 runs...

They didn't win 2-0. It was a 1-1. We lost the second match after scoring 259. They won on the last ball. Paposh went for 74/1, Tareq Aziz gave away 61 runs with 3 noballs each. Nazmul had 35/2 in 10 overs. 3 players were changed from the 1st match. Paposh didn't play the 1st match and we bundled out the scots 146. So there you go. Now you know where we lost the match.

i know it was 1-1...we beat ireland 2-0. i was saying it was dissappointing from a Scotty PoV that they didn't win 2-0 being at home and playing a miserably poor BD team.

Rogers get Bangladesh call-up

Scotland have bolstered their spin attack for next week's tour of Bangladesh by calling up the uncapped Glenn Rogers to replace injured pace bowler Dewald Nel.

The Stenhousemuir left-arm spinner from Brisbane recently completed his four-year qualification period and, after impressing national coach Peter Drinnen at winter nets, has joined Ross Lyons and Majid Haq in the spin cartel.

Each will make his case for selection in a tour match against Bangladesh A in Dhaka next Wednesday, two days before Scotland play their inaugural overseas one-day international in Chittagong. Drinnen has asked to play all his 15 players against Bangladesh A, effectively fielding "a batting team and a bowling team".

Rogers, who competed at first-grade level for South Brisbane and once turned out for the Queensland Academy, will come under serious consideration for a World Cup place if he impresses on the subcontinent.

"The Bangladeshis generally play three spinners in their team, and we are expecting the pitches in Chittagong and Dhaka to turn," said Drinnen. "With Dewald unable to take part, it is a good chance to see Glenn in action in conditions that suit his skills."

Since we can add two more players to the side, I would propose we add two batsmen. My picks would be Uttam Sarkar (Dhaka) and Naeem Islam (Rajshahi).
