Cricket wesites constantly treat Bd as not important. A lot of us use cricbuzz.com for live news of Bangladesh matches. But the wesbite seems to be going down like cricinfo.com. Just go to their website and see the news of Bangladesh series. The stadium's name is wrong.
Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe , 5th ODI , Bangabandhu Stadium
Then, they wrote Bangladesh create a whitewash, i dont even know if it is correct cricketing language or not. They should have wriiten BD whiewash Zim. Sorry to create this stupid thread but I always get sad by different website's negligence to our series. :(

Yah it is so sad India being our nearest neighbor and still didnt host us a single time for a test series. The reason is money and they dont want their players to overburden themselves with a team like Bangladesh. Atleat Bangladesh does prepare better pitches for visiting team than they did in the champions trophy. :p

The Indian's are getting some good treatment from the South Africans now:p . Don't know if their tactics "not to overburden the players with a team like BD" worked so well.:) And don't forget the last time they came to play an ODI series in BD, they lost the second game to us.:flag:

cricinfo(Freakinfo) is a typical Lick-the-foot-of-India website.They are much eager to cover matches between LaL-team of Kolkata vs Balle-team of Rajasthan than BD international matches.
