BD A team's tour of Kenya starting 15th August - pre world cup for the second stream national side.

BD National team will participate in ICC Champion's Trophy in late September and play 2 One Day matches against Australia and New Zealand - I think on 23rd September.

BD National team's tour of South Africa in October where BD will play 2 test matches and 3 ODIs. Bangladesh has never played against South Africa national side ever. I wonder how many times Bangladesh will go all out for 76 in both the ODIs and test matches in this tour.

Let's not be so optimistic about 76. The last time we went there, their A team scred the living daylights out of our batsmen. So, 76 looks like a pretty tall order even in the Test innings. Their fast wickets make it impossible for our players (as if they needed that) to play their 'natural' (whatever that means) game.

As for the ICC trophy. How come we get to play two really goodone day sides and not say West Indies/India/Zimbabwe ? NOT FAIR.

Thats how the draw works. Kenya was ranked above us. So BD is the lowest and AUS is the highest. Top seed always gets the lowest seed in the first round.
