Were only one country to decline to send a side, then the ICC would in all likelihood replace them with Bangladesh, ranked ninth in the ODI rankings at the time of the qualification cut-off date in March. Were two to back out then in theory Ireland, ranked tenth, would be invited.

Told you so.
Australia won't go.
ICc security met with australia and nz yesterday they gave ut the thumbs down.
England and s africa likely to do the same.
Only other option is to switch the venue.
Wouldn't mind if bangladesh replaces us,gives us prep time before the aust india test series,we may go over early to india.

It's not only the Kiwis & kangaroos, a few others are on the way to non participation. In that case itmight shift else where.

I dont mind us playing in the Champions Trophy.
But if Aus, NZ,Eng and SA pulls out, it might as well be called Asia cup+.

Not much of a champions trophy if the world champs are not playing.

if AUS, NZ, SA and England are to pull out.. then i very much doubt they'll still hold the champions trophy in pakistan.. i think they'll probably shift it to sri lanka.. although i'd love it if bangladesh played..

No chance for BD, if that's shifted to SL.
Chairman ICC said on CNN today, that they have asked SL if they are ready to host it and are waiting for their reply.

I was thinking way before that something like this will happen. Anyway its good in one way that we are not participating being a replacement team. I'll be most happy when we will participate deservedly being a super 8 team.

Australian Government Security Warning for SL is the Same as it is in Pakistan, they'd be on some Hypocrite sh!t if they go to Lanka, India has had Bomb Blasts and they'd give an Arm and a Leg to play in the IPL.

South Africa voted yes for the CT to be played in Pakistan ... There players shouldn't even have a right to protest, South Africa isn't the Safest place in the world ... FIFA is already getting Standby Venues for the World Cup

If the ICC lets this happen, I'm telling you Were Losing the 2011 World Cup and 2011 T20 Championships

BCCI should freeze it's accounts for a few days, I'd like to see the ICC to stand on it's feet

Too Add-On does Australia, England and NZ think their better than Asians? Sri Lanka, Bangladesh (twice), India (Toured when Tensions where at all time High) Can travel their and this Players Associations don't wanna go cause they know they're wont be no Parting/Drinking?

I thought they are looking for replacements because the stadiums that are under construction for the games are behind schedule.

cricman bhai said that we might not end up going for the world cup 2011 and 2009/2010?i think that will not happen, but i also think it is an excellent initiative by the ICC to exclude Bangladesh from such highly competetive competitions because it is a strategic initiative to force Bangladesh to play Quality Cricket and i believe that over the past 8 years, there are Enough players in the whole country who have mentally prepared themselves for the challenge and in certain occasions have proven themselves on the individual level "up to the task". on the team basis, inshallah we shall see it soon.

Latest word according to lorgat is the trophy will be canned.
Too late to shift it,and 4 sides likely to pull out,No national board pulled out yet and time is running out.
The aussie player union gave a thumbs down if australia went it would be a weak side.

Maybe, Aussies will play us the test series now, after the three ODI's.

all the nations that pussied out should be forced to pay a fine to the PCB, say a million USD each. the beggar NZ board probably won't be able to afford that, hehe...if teams like india can tour pak, why not aus, NZ, and england?

August 20, 2008, 03:09 PM
at any rate, good for us.

we should push for the 2 tests against OZ, and if denied, we should ask for a 5 match ODI series - if we're gonna get whitewashed, might as well pad our aggregate stats, no? who nows, a sakib or alok type eid day could pop up...so many candidates nowadays, ash, tamim, sakib, rakib, alok could all drop a big one anytime, anyplace, anyhow.

Looks like bangladesh will get the call up.
Siddons said bangladesh will go if invited.

Bangladesh are ready to step into the Champions Trophy if any teams pull out of the tournament, according to the coach Jamie Siddons. Siddons' side replaced Australia when they postponed their tours to Pakistan earlier this year and Bangladesh were also part of the Asia Cup, which was staged in Karachi and Lahore in June and July.

Ninth in the world rankings, Bangladesh could slip into the eight-team Champions Trophy if a re-shuffle is required. "I think we're free to play if it happens but, personally, I can't see it happening," Siddons told the Age. "We've been called to Pakistan recently to fill in for the Aussies and we'll do it again if we get invited."

The state of the Champions Trophy remains undecided as Australia, New Zealand, England and South Africa wait on an ICC ruling on the event, which is due to start on September 12. A final decision on the venue of the contest is due after an ICC meeting on Sunday.

Bangladesh are currently in Australia preparing for a three-match one-day series starting on August 30. They lost their first warm-up against the Australian Institute of Sport, but earned a three-wicket victory in Wednesday's match in Darwin.

I may be proven wrong; won't mind though.

just saw in Geo TV, pak has threatened that they will pull out if it is shifted to SL. Location will probably be confirmed on Sunday. If Pak really pulls out we might have a place.

But realistically I don't think pak can afford to do that. There will be severe back lashes, which pak adhoc pcb can't probably withstand.

Minor correction!!

No team will participate. In other words, the tournament will be cancelled.

i have a feeling the tourny will be cancelled as well or "indefintely postponed".

PCB should demand $1M from each board, and even challenge to take it up in international civil courts. they need the money.

Beamer
August 22, 2008, 12:07 PM
Good if its canceled. Let it be a lesson for ICC. This is what happens when you don't invite BD to a major ICC tournament . Good. The top Eight rule was very much BD and Zimbabwe specific, specially in the aftermath of the longest WC ever, and that too without Ind-Pak featuring in the Super Eight. Poor ICC lost so much money. So, they banned us outright with this discriminatory rule of top eight. Now go cry somewhere..

However, the 20/20 WC, another ICC event in England, will see three more European teams in Scotland, Ireland and Netherlands, and nobody has any objections with it. Don't be surprised if in the next five years or so, Ireland is granted the full status, to bolster the strength of "Western" voting members..
