"Now the chances for hosting the home series against New Zealand are 50-50", Rafiqul Alam, the national chief selector said. "It will be a loss to the team but we shall utilise the services of young and talented players and seniors also",

I already got banned once, so I'm not gonna Risk it but Fire Him and Learn from Ranatunga



Mumbai, Sept. 18 : While the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has slapped a 10-year-ban on the players who joined Indian cricket League (ICL), Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has done exactly the reverse.

According to Colombo-based sources close to the SLC, the interim committee has decided to revoke bans on those players who joined ICL and will be allowing them to play Club cricket.

As per the ICC guide lines, the ban was imposed during the tenure of former SLC Interim Committee chief Jayantha Dharmadasa.

The logic of lifting the ban by Arjuna Ranatunga and company is certain to shock the International Cricket Council and especially the Indian cricket board, with whom present SLC chairman Arjuna Ranatunga is at loggerheads.

"It may be the first step to allow players to represent the country in future", one of the top sources in Sri Lanka pointed out. The decision was taken at the last interim committee meeting. "We received the request from a few players and the decision was taken", one of the interim committee members said on conditions of anonymity.

Who takes loan from whom is not a point. Loans are no freebies. they come with a cost, ie interest.

Thanks cricman for digging this story. This is exactly what we were saying.
the bickering of ICL and BCCI has affected lots of countries. Now if Bangladesh wanted to they could have chosen the path of srilanka or NZ or England.

But Alas officials think they owns it all. SL, BD, ENG, NZ, WI and SA and might even pakistan would have voted to allow ICL to be legalised. The fact that ICC failed to take a central policy (there policy of no intervention), clearly showed that ICC was devided on this issue. But with proper diplomacy and six votes this could easily been altered.

The battle between ICL and BCCI was based on EGO.

Ban imposed by BCB is purly for EGO. there is no other reason for such harsh treatment.

Good dig. Good positive action by CSL. ECB has not banned them at all. So gradually support is increasing in favour of ICL

Exactly as I had predicted. The other boards will take a lesson from the situation in Bangladesh and start unbanning their ICL players. Even in countries reluctant to lift bans on ICL-ers, rebels will emerge, taking inspiration from the Dhaka Warriors. International careers will be sacrificed to promote club cricket. Ladies and gentlemen, the revolution is here.

I read so many Bangla news today and didn't find anything similar to this. Rafiqul Alam seemed to be very optimistic.

def. not. for the moment BCB should stick with BCCI and push for BD players to enter IPL. it is a much more competitive arena and a better opportunity to interact and learn from some very highly skilled cricketers on their teams...BCB needs to be forceful and get BCCI to allow as many players as they can.

BCB is trying to appease the BCCI and to scare off any other players who will try to join the ICL. I applaud the SLCB for doing this and reinstating these cricketers at least in playing at the club level>

It was not Rafiqul Alam bro, it was the Ex-Captain Raquibul Hasan. He said all those things that you have mentioned but a bit different in the end, he said if there is a good batting pitch then the opposition will score around 500 and let us score past 300 and try to draw the game.

This move of Srilanka Cricket may put pressure on BCB and other board as well to allow players to play for ICL

After Lahore Badshah's success, ICL decided to invite a team from Bangladesh instead of Srilanka, may be that got the ego of Srilankan board and they took this decision to have "Colombo Lions" in the ICL :-D

Actually for us ICL is more profitable than IPL. Our players could not show anything that they can compete with those able-players in the IPL. Only Razzaq got the selection (with a very poor $50,000) and his total contribution is bowling 2 overs. In a dead rubber, Dravid did not even give him the strike. With the max 4 foreigner policy, no Bangladeshi player has the ability to be selected regularly in the playing 11.

In ICL, we are getting our own team. In shorter version, it is probably easier for us to do well. So, there is a good chance that DW will do well and encourage ICL to take more players from BD, even in the otehr teams. So, ICL (and not IPL) is profitable for BD cricket. BCB should understand that. But it is our fate that all those people in the management, be it in the government or in the Bafufe or BCB, they do not care about the welfare of BD, all they care are their ego and being rich in a shortcut way.

Yes...I saw the news also.......in NTV news that was ex-captain Raqibul hasan who asked for a solid batting track which at least give Bangladesh a chance to make a draw.

Good to see Srilanka Cricket coming up for their players. I hope that BCB at least let these ICL players play in the domestic matches if not the international. Because we really need these players to contribute in our domestic circuit as there are not much experienced players left in BD. We also saw that how pathetic the NCL squads look without these players.

By unbanning ICL players, SL isn't stopping players going to ICL, rathar encouraging. As the players can go to ICL much more freely. May be we will see a team from SL soon. May be some underhand dealings between Ranatunga & Kapil

That makes a lot of sense to me.

Also, Srilanka is not in the same position as Bangladesh. There is absolutely no question of thier status as a test nation. They are the Asian Champions and the best team in Asia at the moment, in both forms of the game.

Plus this lifting of ban is also symbolic.
Since the players were banned, SL could group up a formidable team who is in a winning streak. Who knows, this players will be allowed to be played in the domestic league, but would never be recalled back in the national team. Its only to bolster thier domestic league's quality.

Player like Atapattu, Chandana could use thier experience to have a positive influence on their youngsters. Also already in thier 30's, these players already passed their prime and dont have much to offer than what the current SL team is doing.

On the other hand, most of our players are still in thier 20's, early 20's, hec even rookies in thier late teens. They had a lot to give but rather chose for easy way out.

Already on the bottom of the league with a struggling history, this exodus of our top players means a whole lot to SL's players. Whatever we fans might say as them being out of form, out on injury, they still were our contracted players which means they were from the best in the business for us.

To me, Sri Lanka's lifting of ban is just as right move as our banning them.

as long as they get the money, thats whats important.

think of this way. razzak basically robbed the BCCI of 50 grand for bowling just 2 overs. bank robbers wish it was that easy getting 50 K.

Rabz is correct. Our situation is not even close to the ground reality of Sri lanka. We have no choice but to protect our assets ( if you can call them that but nevertheless ). Though harsh, but not banning would have open the door to next batch of players, who now at least would thing twice. We simply just can't afford to lose players year after year if we harbor any hope playing top level cricket. There would not have been any ICL for our players if we were not playing at the top level in the last seven years. Our cricket just hasn't matured enough to treat it as a free market enterprise yet. So, some sort of protectionism would have to play a role, until the time comes when we have enough internal resource to cope with it. India of '80's would have done the same thing. On the flip side, this might very well usher in a new era of professionalism across the board in BCB. This is only a stop gap situation. We won't ban our ways out of trouble for eternity and expect to survive. The ball has been set in motion. Hopefully, they ( BCB ) will wake up and play ball.
