Hello Bangla Cricket fans

I am visiting Dhaka for the 2nd test. I can't see how I can buy tickets for the game and would appreciate some advice. I like to watch the game from behind the bowler's arm. Which stands would be best in Dhaka?

Welcome to Bangladesh and Banglacricket as well. :)
You can get the tickets from the stadium on match day.

Test matches, the stadium is empty. You do not need to go early or anything, just show up any time, ignore the scalpers.

I don't know if anyone here knows the chittagong stadium that well as that's a new stadium. But if you want the advice for the mirpur stadium then I am sure Nocturnal will be able to help you out.

BTW welcome to BanglaCricket.

haha T_E bhai tik kothai bolsen.
but seems like my days in Dhaka is numbered. Going back to calgary last part of next month. *sigh*

But hey Ramone,
as Mahmud bhai already mentioned that gallery will be pretty much empty for Dhaka test match unless we WIN the first test in chittagong. You do not worry. You will get your tickets from the ground. it's dirt cheap! Now if you want to watch the game from behind the bowler's arm - you need to sit at special enclosure area. It's good for view but not for other facilities. i.e - washroom or food. Now if you need further suggestion PM (private msg) me here and I might call you if that sounds ok to you while you are here.

Thanks guys for all your good wishes.

I'll send you a PM Nocturnal to discuss the ground layout.

I arrive in Dhaka the night before. I was worried that it might be like India where you cannot buy tickets at the ground. Instead you have to go to a bank!! I had friends who missed half the day's play as a result.

Hope you have a safe trip to Dhaka.
Grameen Phone (a leading mobile phone co.) centers all over dhaka sell tickets and they have one booth in the stadium too. No worries for test match tickets.

Pasha bhai that guy with red cap is my school friend Yousuf. :D
Great to see him in the pic. He was a great opening batsman and a right arm medium as well.
Thanks for the pic. I would inform him.
