This could well be biggest development of 2009. The rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) is all set to be wound up, if the rumour mills are anything to go by. The buzz in the Indian cricket circles is that by the second week of January, the first signs of a rapproachment between the ICL and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is likely to emerge.

This follows a meeting held in New Delhi between the International Cricket Council (ICC) president David Morgan and vice-president Sharad Pawar with senior ICL officials including its chairman Subhash Chandra. Pawar, a former BCCI president is now leading the talks on behalf both India and also the ICC. The sum total of the discussions is likely to result in ICL being winding up and the ban on the players joining the league being lifted.

Also likely to go is the ban on Zee bidding for TV rights held by the BCCI. But the biggest development is likely to be the fact that ICL will be allowed to buy one team in BCCI's own Indian Premier League (IPL).

ICC on its part too likely to send a list of guidelines for ICL for it be integrated in the mainstream. All said, sources within the ICL and the BCCI claim that a major announcement is likely on January 31 when the ICC executive board meeting sits in Perth.

Good news guys we can see Alok and Aftab back in the BD team.Though I don't want SN in the team,he thinks he is smartest guy in the world.

If really this is the case which I still doubt ...
I feel bad for HaBa, he has been earning from ICL without any performance (just selling his "former Captain of BD" label) .. BCB should not entertain HaBa as former captain even the news is right one... he did enough bad for our cricket by organising a cricket team for ICL!

It would be absolutely great for cricket if they can patch up thier differences...
We could definitely use guys like Aftab and Alok in the team.
Ban lifted or not lifted, i dont want to see Dhiman anywhere near the national team. After all, as Shakeel bhai said, has done enough for the team.

Very good news for us and cricket. Hope it happens.

Most importantly we can back all our players in the domestic circuit. We need them to make it more competitive. If they perform well, anybody from ICL can get to play for BD, i have no objection.

I think we need Mosharraf, SN, Aftab, Alok. Dhiman can be considered for Tests for his wicket-keeping. But again firstly, lets have them back. They are good players and we are going to loose nothing but may gain many things if they are back.

Most here want Aftab Alok back. Where? In the national team? Shobar memory etho kharap? Do I have to remind everyone what they said or how they performed? T20 cricket kono measuring stick hoilo? Whom they are going to replace? Rokibul? Nayeem? They are not openers so Zunaid is out of the equation. Or is it people are still after Shakib?

Bhai'rey,
Gas, electricity, solar, Gasoline power'er upor nirbhorshil hon. AA, AAA battery'r joog shesh. Dhiman should be fine. A little competition will do Mushi a world of good.

January 9, 2009, 06:56 PM
I doubt Raqibul could play Ashley Giles right now

I know Aftab is better fielder than most of the new players, He's the perfect 6 or 7 in ODI's

Move Mushifiq to 1st Slip he can still be chirpy and Give Dhiman the Gloves.

Nayeem, Aftab, Ryiad, Alok and Rock can all compete in the Shorter Formats

Tamim badly needs to score runs hopefully he can get healthy vs Zimbabwe, else I will welcome back Minnow Basher with open Arms

January 9, 2009, 07:22 PM
bring dhiman to the test team and play mushy as a batsman? might help the team alot actually, also SN, alok and even aftab might be useful but they shouldn't come straight back into the national line-up. really they should have to start from scratch again imo, i mean really they should have to regain the trust of the selectors and i hope that is the case and they're made to prove themselves.

Dhruvo
January 9, 2009, 07:32 PM
IMHO we should only take some of these guys for T20 matches and a few ODI's , we all know how all of them suck at tests (besides SN though).

akabir77
January 9, 2009, 09:03 PM
no more alok period. he can't score against semi good bowling of lahor Badhsha let alone intl teams...

Only two player should be considered r aftab and SN. I would have love to see dhiman back but the amount of bad mouth he did before leaving i doubt that BCB will forget that...

January 9, 2009, 09:30 PM
ALOK, SN, Rubel for ODis, Alok, SN, Aftab, Rubel for 20-20, SN, Dhimi, and possible Alok and Rubel for tests based on performance. Cricinfo did not have any news on this and neither did indiancricketleague.in (the ICl official site). Let's not get excited over the IFs.

dissapointing to see that most people do not understand and appreciate the fact that these cricket players need the financial security to play cricket professionally. Because Bangladesh Cricket Board has failed to create an infrastructure where players get compensated well for taking up cricket as a profession even if they do not make the national team, we are witnessing folks like Shahriar Nafees, Aftab, Kapali playing in leagues like ICL. in my books, comments like "
I want none of those leech in my Bangladesh team. Anyway only Dhiman deserve a place - but he has already done enough for Bangladesh." by "the Best" is alarmingly discomforting and disrespectful. In my books that kind of comment is worse than abusive "galagali." Hope mods take some action and put out some serious warning.

Shaan
January 10, 2009, 06:29 AM
After today's performance there shouldn't be any doubt to bring back Alok, SN and Aftab in the team, if ICL really validated by BCCI. Have seen quite much of these newbies, they are just too unfit at this level of cricket. Inclusion of ICL exodus will not overnight make us wolrdcup holder but surely they will make huge diffrence of the game.

bdchamp20
January 10, 2009, 08:08 AM
Getting these players back should be the first priority now. It is a necessity. Although I would like them back without the ICL having to close as the players can play with much more freedom, peace of mind and without having the financial worry at the back of their minds. And also because I loved every single match that the Dhaka Warriors played. They are unlikely to get IPL contracts so they need the money. But we have to get them back any way possible.

Alok, SN and possibly MH Rubel can make the Test team.
Alok, SN, Aftab and Dhiman can make the ODI team
And Alok, SN, Aftab, Nazim, Dhiman, MH Rubel can all make the T20 team.

In fact it wasn't his fault. Since he is one of the very few who talks English, the journalist talked to him and he was talking on behalf of the team. So it wasn't purely his personal point of view.

I really don't see a place for Aftab. Alok could get a chance for Mehrab/Nayeem with his bowling. If he can perform

Dhiman can be in the WK in Tests & Mushy plays as a batsman up the order, while Mushy does ODI WK if he can improve his ODI batting.

Above all, I still am not sure that ICL could be scrapped. Lots of things are at stake with that decision. It might be the proposal of ICC/BCCI, but don't think ICL could agree to scrap the entire tournament.

There is a strong indication that this controversy will be settled by the ICC at the end of the month. BCCI will relent and try to recognize the ICL as a legal league and will work out how they can work with each other, which IMO is the right thing to do.

I hope ICL can exist in some way as an ICC approved league. It would be a shame for all the BD, PAK, NZ and Indians who play in the league to not be able to make the money they were.

I never agreed with the ban of the players to begin with so it will be good see the boys back in the national team again. With the T20 world cup this year, I think if allowed, the DW experience in ICL will prove invaluable. I think the following players are due for a callback based on their ICL performance

SN : ODI and T20, possibly even Test. Nafees at any give time period still had better avg. then other members of the team. His crime was he didn't live up to the expectations of the performing Nafees. Compared to other BD batsmen he was always among the best

AA: ODI and T20. Perfect #3 for T20. Use the powerplay overs, get the runs, keep the RR going. Can be a good 6 or 7 in ODI. Excellent fielder

AK : ODI and T20. ICL performance was amazing. Batting showed composure and temperment throughout the tournamen was pure professional

Rubel : ODI and T20.

Dhiman: All forms. His keeping is much better than Mushy. Mushy makes the ODI and Test team as a specialist batsman anyways.

Rafique : Tests. May have another year in him if talked out of retirement. Still has fight left in him.

I'm imagining a T20 XI for the World cup as

Tamim
Nafees (c)
Aftab
Kapali
Ashraful
Shakib
Dhiman
Mashrafe
Rubel
Rasel
1 more pacer/medium pacer

This Alok is our Tendulakor and Bradman combined till he come to bat. Once he face quality bowling, he became a deer in front headlight. He played for Bangladesh after 2, 80s for three years (his fan still claim he was not given enough chance) and now fan demands he should be in the team because he scored a century though team lost.

Totally agree.Alok got lot of chance to prove himself in the national team.Remember Dav watmore once made him number 9 batsman.with full respect to Alok he will fail in front of quality bowler

People on here pumping up Alok Kapali really suprise me. He has played only one good innnings at international level and then went onto dominate mediocre ICL attacks on the flattest of pitches. If he is the man Bangladesh should look to build around, we are in a lot of trouble.

A flat track bully of the highest order.

Afatb also fits into this catergory and Bangladesh are better without his careless batting at the top of the order.

In truth Nafees is the only player currently in the ICL that is of importance to the future of Bangladesh's cricket...

Good news guys we can see Alok and Aftab back in the BD team.Though I don't want SN in the team,he thinks he is smartest guy in the world.

Don't be so happy about it. first of all you don't know if it's gonna happen.

and most of all, i saw talk show in channel-i about this with one of the BCB directors, Gazi Ashraf Hossain Lip. and he clearly said "whatever they do now, even if they left ICL and come to us. we are not gonna listen to them. We gave them a chance to talk to us and they don't show up. They broke the rules and agreements. before a series they suddenly took them off. the way they did it, it's not forgivable."

he said so many things about this issue. i can't remember the name of the show but the show was hosted Ali Zaker. so it seems board took the decision about them and it's clear. as long as this BCB concern, there is no chance.

Simply I can say that if those ICL exodus come back there will be more competition among players to keep their place in the national team which will bring more fruitful results for us as well for players.

1000% agree.........if they came back....there will be more competition......i would rather bring SN, alok, and mosharrof rubel....i know SN is a minnow basher, but hey he got good cricketing knowledge....ar amader erkom typer player dorkar je wickete tikea thakte thake team ke jitaia dewa, tarpor alok...i am damn sure if he joins the bd team, then we gonna win more matches...we need these type of batsman who can easily change the game scenario...alok ashle ash tar spot harabe for sure.....mosharrof rubel, because t osuport sakib....razzak is banned, and enamul is a moradhora bowler as usal...so having rubel in the team will be a good idea........as megh bhai said," we have a better team now"

try to gather some information bro. i am not against those players. i was a huge fan of Aftab and if you do search around all the Alok threads you are gonna find my posts where i always did fight for this guys. even with Sohel_NR bro. i really miss these 2 guys. Nafis did scored 4 100s in ODI. but if you watch his batting or his style of batting, it's really silly. and those 4 100s he scored against the weakest ZIM(3 of them) and one against Bermuda. i am gonna keep ahead all the 100s of others in BD team which are against those test playing nations. anywayz if you do the research you are gonna find that most of the wickets in Bangladesh were batiing and flat tracks before. i don't know why and how?? all the tracks this time in Mirpur becomes like a hell for the batsmen. not only for ours even for the SL batsmen. couple of them did score but they got batter players than ours. so you can't say no one perform from our team. i am gonna wait for a macth where Sakib and Mash not gonna perform. and that day i will show you those other performers as well. we have at least 6 performers in our team. just pray that 3 of them fires up one same day. Tamim, Ashrafool, Rokibul, Mushy, Shakib and Mash. these 6 players are gonna stay and they are gonna stay for a long period of time Inshallah. Ashrafool is the guy on whom i am mad most. but i really wish him to come back real soon. Mark my words bro, in 2011 ICC WC, with these player we are gonna do something very special. Try to understand bro i am not against them and i am against the way they did it and the issues few players had shown. few, only very few players could bring those issues up like Alok. he was almost forgotten for like 2 years even after performing in the NCL regularly. but other player had their chances. Nafees did not perform form the WC. he was getting chances till NZ tour. and nobody gonna ask/prefer for Mosharaf by taking off Shakib or Razzak. and played 3 matches scored 15 runs and took only 1 wicket. then his chances should go low against Shakib and Razzak. Farhad Reza, he played 32 matches in his career of 2 years. i think within those 2 years he played in most of the matches Bangladesh played. then how come their complaints were true bro. are you gonna tell that Habibul was performing?? he was out of the touch even in test matches for a long long time. then what happened???Dhiman Gosh, he played 14 ODI matches in his 6 months long career. are you gonna say that selectors didn't give him enough chances??? i don't know man. if i wanted i can put so many things like this here. if someone gonna really have some complaints then it's Alok and only Alok. no one else. and i don't think i have to say anything about Aftab who used wrap the BD flag on his head and look what he did? it's clear that they left the team for money. there was nothing. totally nothing else.that's why i hate them for their way of doing it. not for playing in the ICL. i supported the team but don't support their deeds.

I hope i could make you understand.you wouldn't believe how i felt after getting the news just before the series against the NZ.anywayz stick to you point and i am gonna stick to mine bro. i am not gonna support the way they did it. this is the thing.

Posted by Peter English 9 hours, 8 minutes ago (http://blogs.cricinfo.com/thebuzz/archives/2009/01/icls_law_feels_like_a_leper.php) in Australian cricket (http://blogs.cricinfo.com/thebuzz/archives/australian_cricket/)
Signatures on Indian Cricket League contracts continue to have lasting effects in Australia. First Jason Gillespie was banned from coaching at the Australian Centre of Excellence and the same thing has happened to Stuart Law.
Law, a former Queensland captain, has not played first-class cricket in Australia since 2004, but was told he could accept a position as batting coach at the Academy only if he stopped playing in the ICL. "I can't see what the problem is,” Law said in the Courier-Mail. “If the ICL was pinching young players like Alister McDermott to play then I could understand Cricket Australia getting upset about it.
“But guys who haven't played Shield cricket for a number of years ... what's the problem? The ICC are trying to sort this out and the ICL is happy to talk, but the IPL are making us lepers in the community."


ICL star Law understands why BCB get upset with ICL!

Once the ICC is controlled by the BCCI, ICL will not be resolved, ICC should have the guts to stand up to the BCCI. It is all for money and the greedy BCCI. If ICL is illegal, then the IPL should be illegal in the ICC's eyes.

Nafis did scored 4 100s in ODI. but if you watch his batting or his style of batting, it's really silly. and those 4 100s he scored against the weakest ZIM(3 of them) and one against Bermuda. i am gonna keep ahead all the 100s of others in BD team which are against those test playing nations. anywayz if you do the research you are gonna find that most of the wickets in Bangladesh were batiing and flat tracks before. i don't know why and how?? all the tracks this time in Mirpur becomes like a hell for the batsmen. not only for ours even for the SL batsmen. couple of them did score but they got batter players than ours. so you can't say no one perform from our team. i am gonna wait for a macth where Sakib and Mash not gonna perform. and that day i will show you those other performers as well. we have at least 6 performers in our team. just pray that 3 of them fires up one same day. Tamim, Ashrafool, Rokibul, Mushy, Shakib and Mash. these 6 players are gonna stay and they are gonna stay for a long period of time Inshallah. Ashrafool is the guy on whom i am mad most. but i really wish him to come back real soon. Mark my words bro, in 2011 ICC WC, with these player we are gonna do something very special. Try to understand bro i am not against them and i am against the way they did it and the issues few players had shown. few, only very few players could bring those issues up like Alok. he was almost forgotten for like 2 years even after performing in the NCL regularly. but other player had their chances. Nafees did not perform form the WC. he was getting chances till NZ tour. and nobody gonna ask/prefer for Mosharaf by taking off Shakib or Razzak. and played 3 matches scored 15 runs and took only 1 wicket. then his chances should go low against Shakib and Razzak. Farhad Reza, he played 32 matches in his career of 2 years. i think within those 2 years he played in most of the matches Bangladesh played. then how come their complaints were true bro. are you gonna tell that Habibul was performing?? he was out of the touch even in test matches for a long long time. then what happened???Dhiman Gosh, he played 14 ODI matches in his 6 months long career. are you gonna say that selectors didn't give him enough chances??? i don't know man. if i wanted i can put so many things like this here. if someone gonna really have some complaints then it's Alok and only Alok. no one else. and i don't think i have to say anything about Aftab who used wrap the BD flag on his head and look what he did? it's clear that they left the team for money. there was nothing. totally nothing else.that's why i hate them for their way of doing it. not for playing in the ICL. i supported the team but don't support their deeds.

I hope i could make you understand.you wouldn't believe how i felt after getting the news just before the series against the NZ.anywayz stick to you point and i am gonna stick to mine bro. i am not gonna support the way they did it. this is the thing.

lol, ager otit itihash jene to luv nai...luv ache ki? batsman's mindset can change.....just look at sakib...from the very begining, i thought that he's going to be another inconsistent performer, but he really shows up what he's capable of....similar to alok....he changed his batting strategy..also shahriar nafees.....he showed some patience in ICL...i know ICL's bowlers are not that good, but the fact is that how you can executed the game according to your role....u should shahriar nafees's valuable half century agains a team(forgot the name)......he was there till end....after that he stated that, " my only goal was to stay in the wicket, and play full 20 overs...and stay there till the end...and that was my job to do". And he finally did it....now about mosharrof rubel....... i know he couldn't make a promising start in national team, but he really showed his capabillity in ICL....you can just look at his bowliing footage...and i'm not talking about taking of places...shakib really needs a good partner in spin department(razzak is banned, so i look for alternative choices..and i prefer rubel)...and i'm not talking about all the icl players here...i'm talking about those who really deserve to be in the national team........icl playerra jodi char pai....apni khali deikhen ki hoy....it's gonna be more stronger team

another thing is that sakib and mash, both are performing in test/odi.... rokibul is performing well only in odi..mushy is performing well in test...tamim and ash are countless......taderke bksp te jaia abar cricketer basic shomporke jaina aste hobe...........tahole eiber calculate kore performance rate bair koren..........." we have 6 performers" katakati korte korte we have 2.5 performers e ashbe... koren na calculate

obviously nowdays, money matters..and they joined icl for money ...that's 100% true...but the thing is that icc didn't ban icl, bcci does...who is bcci? amader chacha, mama, khala, na khalu?.....bcci banned na korle to scene different hoito...hoito na? then u would think icl is just like the hindi version of county cricket...and those players are go for that......i don't support bcci, i support icc...so as icl......if icc ban icl, then i'm not gonna support icl

IPL takes permission from respective cricket board to before signing a player whereas ICL does not.

I don't see ICL issue getting resolved. ICL is continuing it's activities in full swing at the domestic level. ICL will not give in to undue demands of IPL i'm sure. An ICL team in IPL wasn't good enough, because amidst all these restrictions and noncooperations, ICL is making much more money than a team in IPL is making. So ICC/BCCI needs to comeup with more realistic propositions. Hope as the hype of IPL starts settling down, BCCI/ICL/Modi will be able to think more rationally, to resolve the issue.

doesn't matter what the rest of the world has to say BCCI will not change their mind about ICL..as they stated...they consider ICL a domestic issue since it is taking place inside india..so without the local cricket board (BCCI's) support ICC can't do anything about it...

Why they consider that? Mamabari Naki? :)

Why they don't consider IPL to be domestic issue? Why they are having to involve ICC on that to ensure that the players are available? Why they have to sign contracts with other boards on domestic issue?

Why they influenced other boards through ICC to not to recognize ICL?

Since both ICL & IPL has large number of foreign players involved, it affects all the other boards & that can no more be a domestic issue. If it was like Counties/Aus/SA leagues where foreign players are playing on limited scale & they are available whenever the respective boards want them. But in case of IPL they want the players to be available more rigidly. So they had to involve ICC & get guarantee of the respective boards for availability. Same is the nature of ICL & they can't call it a domestic issue. If their domestic issue is affecting many boards today, it can no more be a domestic issue.

Expect some good news!!!!

http://www.cricbuzz.com/component/latest_cricket_news/Story/10142/icl--bcci-compromise-on-the-cards/


Finally a compromise of sorts between the BCCI and the ICL could be on the cards, after Subhash Chandra and ICL head Himanshu Modi will meet Sharad Pawar and BCCI president Shashank Manohar this week in Mumbai to thrash out their differences.

One of the things that could be proposed during the meeting was ICL becoming a part of the BCCI, according to a top official who said that "ICL matches will most likely be accepted as exhibition matches, officially accepted by BCCI and in turn Zee will compromise on a few issues."

Also the BCCI's domestic telecast and production rights will be up for sale in 2010, with Zee being one of the top contenders this time, there is added incentive for Subhash Chandra to work out a settlement with the BCCI. The official also added that this time the meeting will lead to something conclusive which will surely gladden the hearts of all the ICL cricketers.

If a compromise is worked out then the ICL cricketers could be brought back into the BCCI fold after looking into all the legalities involved.

When did ICL sought permission from BCB before creating Dhaka Loosers. They may or may not appoint A$$thefool as their agent to recruit the turncoats. When A$$ refused they found the perfect MirJafar SN (who BTW thinks playing ICL is the best thing that happens to him, representing your country is the best thing happen to you, fool) to create the team. BCB was officially in dark in the whole period.
So support Dhaka Loosers as much as you want but don't spread lie. The only one who is victim of ICL saga is Bond who sought permission from the board and was given permission from the board; then NZCB back stabbed him. Even in this case ICL did not sought permission from NZCB. On the other hand to get contract from IPL one have to provide NOC from respective board. BTW I am not a BCCI fan; but ICL is not Karry Packer (at least Packer has the best players). Of the ICLers only Bond deserves his place in the team without question.

That's what they have asked from ICC & are going through negociation with ICC. Since ICC has instructed boards to not to allow players for ICL, there is no meaning asking BCB or any board until the issue is resolved with ICC.

i was crying out loud and trying to say these things in my other replies regarding ICL. nobody even tried to show slightly interest. you know one thing that if someone doesn't understand then you can make him understand but when someone understands the whole story but shows that he doesn't then you are wasting your time by trying to make them understand.

yeah right!!!!
ICC didn't say anything like that. they didn't say if anyone gonna play in the ICL they will be banned. ICC said that it depends on their own cricket board. about playing in ICL the involved cricket board gonna take the decision about the players.

LOL! lol!!
without any past history you are gonna make your present and future???? that shows your thinking ability.
anyways for sake of the argument i agree with you. i am forgetting the so called OTIT.
now you tell me how are you gonna select a team for any series if you are asking me to forget their past performances or otit itihash(as you said)??? when you are selecting a team then why their past records jumps up??? ager itihash jene tu lav nei tai na???

try to read the whole thing in my reply. don't just come to a argument without understanding the whole saying. i said that it's not like that i don't support as a team of ours in a international league but i don't like the way did it and went their without any notice.

i found a interview of Alok few days back in "Prothom-Alo". in the interview Alok was asked "If BCB ask you that "you can come back in the team if you leave ICL." are you gonna come back??? Alok said "NO! i can't do that. i have a contract with them. I can't break it. It would be unethical." now my question is, they know the ethics and ready to apply it if BCB ask them to do so but where was it when they went to ICL????

in another interview Sahriar Nafees said "Playing in the ICL is the best thing happened in my life/ career."with a mentality of this narrow no one can be a better player/human being. doing something for own country is the best thing to do in someone's life. take Smith as an example. for his team he came to bat with a serious injury against Australia.

anywayz i don't know how you guys are supporting those players who went to ICL without any notice or saying like a "Raiter adharer GORU CHOR"???? if they were doing the right thing as you guys are claiming then when they did it keeping everybody in the dark and just the day before they are gonna leave they said it(actually ICL declared the team name and we came to know).

A league strugling to receive the recognition of ICC & you mean to say that, other boards can ignore ICC's position?b

Noone said here that ICC has told them to ban the players for joining ICL, it is about approval / permission to play in ICL. ICL wouldn't get the approval of the respective boards to sign the players, due to ICC's own position on the issue. There is a huge difference in instruction to ban some one & instruction to not to provide official approval for doing something.

Please try to go a little backwards to understand why people are saying what, or else you run the risk of misinterpretting things, taking it out of context.
