Tri-series plans under threat
Sports Reporter from Chittagong

Bangladesh Cricket Board's plan to hold a triangular series involving India during South Africa's tour to Bangladesh in February next year has been dented as their Indian counterparts are not ready to send their side during that time.And with the development, BCB are trying to get the assurance from the visiting BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) high-ups that in that case, they have to play a triangular series also involving Pakistan.

BCCI president Sharad Pawar, along with board secretary Niranjan Shah, arrived in Chittagong yesterday in invitation of BCB and they have discussed the issue in their informal meetings.

Niranjan Shah also told the visiting Indian reporters at the team hotel that they are supposed to play a triangular series involving Pakistan and Bangladesh but the time was yet to be finalised.

When contacted, BCB general secretary Mahbub Anam also admitted that there was a talk about the rescheduling of the triangular tournament which was included in the ICC's Future Tours Programme (FTP).

But the bearded organizer however did not elaborate on the issue.
It was learnt that the triangular tournament will be held in May after the Asia Cup but BCB wants assurance from their Indian counterparts that it should involve Pakistan also.

India shouted for rescheduling as they have a tour to Australia when South Africa are in Bangladesh.
So instead of Having 6 ODI between SA and India, we just may have 3 or 5 ODI vs South Africa but a Tri-Series between Bangladesh-India-Pakistan does intrigue me, but it'll be like another Asia Cup and it will lose some luster considering it'll be held right after Asia Cup.

BCCI does not want us to play in Tri-series, very disappointed

Not a good news.

BCCi is again the decider here. An almost certain series is now under threat and Ind-Pak-Ban series is still a proposal.

I change my mind screw that, BCB shouldn't take this crap from the BCCI. If you can't come in Feburary, then instead of us hosting a Tri-series in May. Lets Just get our Maiden Tour to India during that time! I'd gladly take the lunch money the BCCI would give us.

Hmm India scared to face the SA already. I mean even on slow pitches. I wished we couldve played SA in their territory. they are heaps stronger in their pitches. I dont care if we get whitewashed.

May 19, 2007, 01:52 PM
I take that back. They are actually touring the ausssies at that time, so yeah they would prefer the aussies over the SA at slow pitches. It makes sense, I mean even I would do that.

I hope BCCI decission of not touring to BD makes SA not touring us with a silly excuse

BCCI is doing the thing they do best. Scrap tours. What else can you expect from this sport body. I would love to know the reason for scrapping though this time. But it is time we stop giving a rats behind to BCCI and look for series' with other nations. Not playing India in a bilateral or multilateral series is not the end of the world for us. With our rising profile in international cricket I am sure we will find more eager nations.

I totally agree with u!!!

BCB should play some other country during that time instead of India!!!And ya thats what BCCI is the best at scrapping!!!

Well if the BCCI doesn't want to play, then why bother having an Ind-Ban-Pak tri-series? We should simply swap India with South Africa and push for an SA-Ban-Pak one.

I have a question hope someone can answer. Is BCCI allergic to Bangladesh? Why is it that they always "Naak-shitkaye" when there is a talk about playing in BD or against BD?

Everytime they always look for a way out of any series with Bangladesh.

We dont have any Mugabe in our government so I don't see why they have this snobbish attitude all the time.

if we can't play against india pakistan then we should think about organizing tours with nations like west indies, england, australlia, etc..

I have a question too.

The series in Australia was planned many years ago and the match by match schedule, with dates and all, has been there in cricinfo fow a few months now. India is in Australia from late December to early March. See http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/australia/content/series/291320.html?template=schedule The South African tour of Bangladesh still wears a "to be confirmed" tag (http://ind.cricinfo.com/db/FORTHCOMING/FORTHCOMING_TOURS_RSA.html )

If the Australian tour was known so much in advance, why was the tri-nations scheduled so as to clash with this tour ? Isn't is blatantly obvious that India isn't available in February ?

Is this snobbery or just utter idiocy on the part of BCB and BCCI and whoever planned the tri-nations ?

Now this makes more sense. But the question now is which buffoon is resposnisble for the initial scheduling of the tri series knowing the FTP in advance !!!!!

BCCI is good at only making money from pockets of us innocent Indian cricket fans.Bcci should have not even brought this series into equation.Bcci is richest board in cricket world with one of most ordinary teams and worst domestic cricket in world.:lol: :lol:

Well, there are arrogant Indians AND nice Indians, just like there are arrogant Bangladeshis and nice Bangladeshis, albeit at a different ratio, perhaps.

However, about the BCCI, they are both arrogant and stupid. 2003 World Cup: India makes it to the Final. BCCI hires Greg Chappel and allows/supports him in a foolish war against Ganguli, India's all time most successful captain. Chappel is allowed to destroy quite a few upcoming talents such as Irfan Pathan, Yuvraj Singh, Kaif, and so on. 2007 World Cup, under Dravid's servile attitude toward Chappel, Indian gets knocked out before the super-8. Perhaps we still would have beaten them in the WC. But, Greg Chappel made it easier. Thank you, Greg.
