Nice article on Bangabhandu Stadium gone foul.

The Bangabhandu Stadium was formerly known as the Dacca Stadium, and was a regular Test venue for Pakistan before Bangladesh was granted independence.

Granted? Are you out of your mind idiots?

Old venue breaks new ground (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/ban_v_eng_2003/3203922.stm)

Judging by the article and its tone, I would just say the writer was either ill-informed or is not very sensitive to the indenpendence issue. I don't think there was any malicious intent involved.

They have corrected it.

It says "Bangladesh achieved independence" now.

Sorry for calling you guys names (sensitive issue, you know). Cheers.
