some on ICF thought even this 2nd string Z-grade spin attack of theirs was better than ours.

hope zim wins the final.

sri lanka actually has a strong team right now..they arent arrogant like india..they always send full strength teams where ever they tour..really like the lankans for that..they also treat every team with respect..so look for the lankans 2 really take the zimbos seriously..

india can still lose twice to lanka...and if they make the finals, they will assuredly lose even if its against zim D side.

whenever i hear an indian say - and they've been saying with increasing fervor since our recent improvements - that BD should not play tests i can't help but think, "i will gladly agree that BD should not play tests, when you agree that India should never play a finals match."

zimbabwe bowling is very very disciplined. they just try to bowl on a good line and length and sets field accoriding to bowling.

although we have much more talented bowlers than zimbabwe.

India finally managed 194 runs in 50 overs. Not too bad considering they were 7 down for 128. Zimbabwe failed to push for the final kill.

India's performance should be a big worry for the Indian fans. The team is full of IPL stars, the future of Indian cricket. The gap between Dravid Tendulkar era and Kohli Vijay era appears too big to undergo a smooth transition.

Big stars in the Indian team (I think) refused to go to Zimbabuwe. Luxury & lucrative ad businesses were more important to them than team performance (no source, just my speculation).

Equinox
June 3, 2010, 06:47 AM
The team selection is idiotic and disrespectful to Zimbabwe. At least the Lankans picked most of their regulars with a few newcomers and had their vice-captain lead the team. But this Indian team is farcical. A senior like Gambhir or Yuvraj should have been captain. What have they done to deserve a break? Getting dumped without winning a Super 8 game two years in a row and they deserve a break? I hope the Zimbos thrash them by ten wickets. Man I can't wait to see what the Indian Test team will look like without Tendulkar, Dravid and Laxman.

Zim 85/0

man this match reminds me so much of BD vs Ind in WC07. though Zim had a much better start than us.
Ya,the Indians are once again being complacent by selecting these players in the team.
I don't think the blame is on the Ind cricketers but on the selectors.

Cocky basterds..I hope they get humiliated even more now..this just shows how arrogant and disrespectful the indians are..why pick a team full of amateurs? What are the youngsters gonna gain from getting smacked by the zimbos? MMW India is gonna fall in the long run once their stars retire and teams like Sri Lanka will emerge..cant tell you how good this makes me feel..

June 3, 2010, 08:21 AM
how thrilling for ZIM fans. back to back wins vs. IND (assuming no miracle comeback today), an ODI and T20 win over WI in the Caribbean, warm up world cup wins against PAK and AUS (both semifinalists in the event).

Who knows what they could've done in the T20 world cup if both of their matches were not rain effected.

The thing that really annoys me the most is how India has failed 2 invite us after 10 years of test cricket..and they say because of them we are still in test cricket? Well India I dont think you were trying 2 help us at all..they pretty much wanted us 2 be thrown in2 the wolves while not wanting any development 4 us..look at England..they are pretty much the bosses of cricket but they've invited us, so has every test country except these arrogant snobs..and their not that great either..even with those stars we gave them a run for their money..India needs spankings like these more often so they could actually get back on earth and realize their just an overrated side..I mean what have they done significant these last few years 2 gain all this respect?

I doubt. I saw the game, and this ZIM did not look too different from the one we played a while back. I still think a 5 match series between BD-ZIM would go 4-1 or 3-2 in our favor.
But India some some real issues here, they send their A team bowling line up[well, it's still the 2nd best bowling line up of #1 test team] and they have no answers to the Zimbabwean batsmen! I believe our 2nd bowling line up, currently consisting of Rasel, Dolar, Shuvo, Enamul can do better than this Indian bowling line up.

AsifTheManRahman
June 3, 2010, 09:15 AM
They got complacent, sent a bunch of overrated noobs and Zimbabwe took advantage of it as they should. And I say that without any intention of taking anything away from Zimbabwe.

So what does this mean as far as t he conclusion of this tournament is concerned? India still have a slight chance of making it to the finals, yeah? I'm more concerned about whether Zimbabwe will get kicked out - I don't want them to.

yes, the other ICF, just published a front page article about how badly BD suck.

just as we've gotten better, they've gotten more vitriolic.

they scared of losing to us...muhahaha.

trust me, after the sachins and dravids...this team will be very "ordinary" as this tri series is proving.

the raina's and rohits are no younger than our boys, and even our boys wouldn't have lost this badly to a zimbawe side which has a few quality players but is still a couple of rungs below us at the very least.

we have a series against zimbabwe in the fall?

this will be a good series, IMO. zims are strong. last time taibu missed most of the series. i still would pick us winning 4-1 at home (tamim will only be stopped once or twice) and then there is razzak who will turn in figures that murali would beat off to.

in zimbabwe, i'd pick us 3-2, simply becaue while zim are good enough to beat us 3-2 at home, our boys have that mental edge over them. the "we're too good to lose a series to you guys" attitude.

yes, the other ICF, just published a front page article about how badly BD suck.

just as we've gotten better, they've gotten more vitriolic.

they scared of losing to us...muhahaha.

trust me, after the sachins and dravids...this team will be very "ordinary" as this tri series is proving.

the raina's and rohits are no younger than our boys, and even our boys wouldn't have lost this badly to a zimbawe side which has a few quality players but is still a couple of rungs below us at the very least.

actually i dont think india's future is that bad. sachins, dravid and ganguly days are counted but they still have some more years from Sehwag, Gambhir, Dhoni, Yuvraj.

the problem india has they sent a teamm with too much youth. they should have made a mix of experience and youth. two of Sehwag, gambhir, dhoni, yuvraj should have been in the squad. also may be sachin or dravid, none of them was in the t20 WC. when u give youth players the chance u must mix them with some experience. but this india team has no experience.

same goes to their bowling. u dropped all ur experienced bowlers zaheer, ashish, sreesanth, munaf, rp singh, irfan, harbhajan, piyush etc. and u give 3 pacers debut at the same time. thats a joke when have 3 pacers debut. they could have at least taken one of zaheer or nehra. and play the three debutatnts around him.

so it was india's fault. we have seen u drop 2-3 key players and be 10% complacent BD, zim, ire can surprise u.

and here Ind rest almost 9 of their key players .... .... what a joke

Big stars in the Indian team (I think) refused to go to Zimbabuwe. Luxury & lucrative ad businesses were more important to them than team performance (no source, just my speculation).

it was a punishment for the senior players for failing to perform in T20WC. but congrats to zim, we need them to come back to world standard for the good of cricket.

This feels so good..and look at ICF..equinox talking smack 2 them and now their like oooo well BD sucks..getting all defensive now huh Indians? Cocky basterds..I hope they get humiliated even more now..this just shows how arrogant and disrespectful the indians are..why pick a team full of amateurs? What are the youngsters gonna gain from getting smacked by the zimbos? MMW India is gonna fall in the long run once their stars retire and teams like Sri Lanka will emerge..cant tell you how good this makes me feel..
the same can be said about BD fans given how they post during matches ? I understand you have no conception of decency but it doesn't hurt to at least try and behave like a civilized being.
India needs spankings like these more often so they could actually get back on earth and realize their just an overrated side..I mean what have they done significant these last few years 2 gain all this respect?

but they failed to bowl out Zim, not once twice. The least you can do is accept that your board was being too cocky and sent an inexperienced team thinking Zim was too easy. If you read offstump's post up top he explained it nicely why it was a bad call for BCCI to select such an inexperienced team. I mean look at your bowling line up, is there any experience in that line up what so ever? they debuted 3 bowlers in one match I think. Its that sort of thing that bothers me, BCCI thought they are too good for Zim. and I'm glad Zim took the chance and taught them a lesson.

June 4, 2010, 10:35 AM
bhai, it was not at all being cocky. without being aware of the happenings in Indian media you may think that but it's not true. as I've already said, the seniors were left out as punishment and the juniors were asked to prove their mettle. there's no cockiness involved. no serious cricket follower of this country expected this tournament to be a walk in the park.
zimbabwe have after all defeated a full strength WI team in their home in the recent past. they also defeated some other top team in one of the practice games. so yes, we all knew there was chance of a defeat. but this tournament allows people to plan better for the future knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the young players.

punishment for what? not winning the WT20?? hello that was T20 this is ODI. anyway you know more about your team news than me, so if that was the case than that's that. But even still think that was a retarded Idea. I think your batting line up is ok, with Raina and Kholi in the middle but they could have left either one of yuvraj or dhoni in the middle to guide the young ones. and your bowling line. well not much to talk about.

Neel Here, I honestly think Australia is the only dominant team as of now..for a little time they've gone down 2 the level of India and RSA but now they are back on track..they are the only elite team right now..India seems 2 be great on their own tracks..but when they face teams outside their country they struggle ridiculously..look at the last time they visited the Lankans..the so called masters of spin got befuddled by Mendis and Murali..Ya in tests they have looked good but I'm interested when they play away..I believe that if you want to be known as a top team then you have to beat teams away..look at RSA even..they've went 2 almost every country and beaten them except the last India tour..so again ya India might be good but I call them overrated because their not elite..I feel like Indians think their elite though..I would call them a good team though..but definitely not an elite team..and I'm talking only on tests here..India in the shorter versions are even more streakier because their stars dont play..

Back to cricket ..bad loss by the Indians but I still think this gamble was worth it .Our 'main attack' sucks big time and this experiment was worth it .Frankly the batting was bailing us out for some time so I guess this experiment exposes the fact that we need to get out act together . Else we will loose our status of being the "Best" team .I know the detractors are going to dig out silly reasons(according to me) to prove otherwise but the point table indicates we are No2 in ODI (despite the losses to Zim) and No 1 in Tests. We have won Tests in Aus and SA and have won test series in all the other cricketing nations in the last 3-4 years. Cant see how Aus be the 'theoretical' No1 , they have not won a series in England ,India and SL (did they?) for sometime .But I guess you could use Aus as your pseudo defense until BD picks up. Until then I am entitled to my bragging rights and a quiet chuckle.

Neel here..well if you look at it that way then ya they are elite teams but when I say elite team, I say teams that really outdistance themselves with other teams..would you call teams such as NZ, WI, Pak, and BD elite? No way these teams can be called elite..

That England test series in England was impressive..I'll admit that..I remember they won the test series and lost in the ODI series..correct me if I'm wrong..the WI series I'll give some credit but wasnt all that impressed..1st of all 2 games were whitewashed and then another 1 was DL..take nothing away from India but wasn't really impressive..then they lost 2 Aussies in that test series but won the tri series..that was the most impressive in my opinion..but then when they had the ODI series in India they lose 2 an Aussie side that was pretty much an A team..I'll say this, India's a good test team but not great and in ODIs the same thing..I'm sorry but I'm not buying in2 India being great..if they go 2 the semis in 2011 WC then I'll say thats very impressive..in my opinion India seems a little 2 inconsistent 2 be called an elite or a #1 team..

one thing has nothing to do with the other, one doesn't follow logically from the other.

Aus series would be considered more important and therefore the best team would be sent, the punishment thing would have been postponed in that case or other punishments invented. there's has to be a balance between maintaining discipline and doing what's best for the team in the longer run. why is this so hard to understand ?

Right. He was not in the T20 squad. So, if he did not accumulate some deserved punishment from some previous series/tournament, the punishment theory fails at least for him. :(

Or may be, he is not good enough for the Zimbabwe condition. Poor Sachin!

I guess it's very difficult to understand why a 37 year old player has been rested for a not so important series. that's why he wasn't in the T20 team right ? because BCCI felt they would win T20 WC easily ? :rolleyes: I wish I could share your simplistic world view where one theory has to fit each and every fact or it is wrong.

Heehee as a Pakistani you can expect I'm over the moon. But to be fair it is a young squad; however as a few people have noted this Indian team do seem to be spoilt. They also cite examples of Tendulkar, Dravid etc as examples of good attitude but the fact is when India idolizes players for every small thing they do, how can they be surprised when it gets to the players' head? The fact is that yes the players may be a bit spoilt but it's the cash-filled Indian board, media and fanatical fanbase that makes them this way. They should remember it's just a game.

I'm pretty glad for SL...after Pakistan they and Bangladesh vie for my second favourites and remember their own team is a second-string one, that's really no excuse for losing. Even when they did lose to India it was because of a good Indian performance, not because of Sri Lanka's blundering. They haven't been thrashed the way India have, or the way Zimbabwe had one bad day at the office. I've honestly enjoyed this series as much as most tournaments I can remember

I'm also really chuffed for Zimbabwe who despite the political hoodoo always give 100 percent in the field. As somebody else noted the Zimbabweans are very disciplined, a factor that teams like Pakistan and Bangladesh can learn from so that their talent doesn't go to waste

Great win by Zim. The match was always in their control except the short-and-wide-outside bowling by Chigumbura and Chibhaba. A very calculated chase, this is how cricket should be plyed, not like our superstars, who throw their wickets away after scoring a personal milestone.

they themselves stepped away from the TEST ARENA and have a definite plan about their return. they said prior to the WI tour that they want to wait another 6-12 month and wants to return when they fell they will be able to compete, they dont want a premature return and struggle.

their team management and board looks to have proper people in charge and they have good objectives not like our board full of corrupted ppl with no plan.

there is nothing to be nervous about them in novemeber. we still have better squad and upcoming players but only talent wise. only we need to sort out our tactical and mental side.

though it will be a real test for our players. if we lose to them i think that will be a blessing in disguise as it may open the eyes of our players, team management and board that they are wrong in their methods.

Neel Here
June 7, 2010, 11:14 AM
well I simply don't know but why is such a tour not mentioned in the FTP ? when all tours are organised on a reciprocal basis ?

you will probably not like what I think is the possible answer.

the one point we need to remember, when a big team tours another country, it is the touring team that is doing a favour to the hosts. because the host gets to keep the money for TV rights and its affliated stadiums get some neat gate money. so for example, when Aus tours Ind, CA is doing a favour to BCCI.
if the team is one of the 3, Ind Aus or Eng, especially Ind, it means a windfall for the host board. so it is quite possible that it is the BCB that wants India tours without wanting to bother BCCI about a BD tour, which is financially loss-making for the subordinate regional boards of BCCI, which depend on gate-money. this is also the reason why australia scheduled BD tests in obscure 2nd rate venues like darwin.

if it is as you think it is, that BCCI is not hosting BD out of sheer spite and hate, BCB would probably have complained about it. have they ? (I don't know) if they have, it means you are correct, if not, it means the current situation is with BCB's understanding.

P.S I'll give you another hint, count the number of times Ind has toured BD and then compare with the other profit generating teams(Aus and Eng) have visited or hosted BD.
India : 2000-2001, 2003-2004, 2007, 2009-2010 (4) Hosted : 0
Aus : 2005-2006 (1) Hosted : 2003-2004(1)
Eng : 2003-2004, 2009-2010(2) Hosted : 2005, 2010 (2)

I would strongly suggest that at BCB's request BCCI has changed the India tours to tours by India, since that helps fill up BCB's coffers. clearly, there were two BD tours and two Ind tours originally thought of but then both were converted to BD tours. it all adds up perfectly.
BCCI has done that once in the past, when the WICB was in a financial crisis, BCCI organised a tour to WI and helped generate some cash for WICB by way of TV rights.

this can only be good for cricket. and for BD. no more one-sided contests that do little good for developing our talent. no more non-chalance when we win.

that being said, we've beaten this same zim team quite recently by comfortable 8-2 margin, and the only addition to that team is craig ervine.

zimbabwe is gelling at the right time, and will be the same banana skin at the world cup that we were in 2007.

did you read my last post ? I didn't make those points earlier because many Bangladeshis get into a frenzy of disbelief every time they hear India helped them in any way and I wanted to avoid a fight.
ask anyone from BCB who knows the nitty gritties of cricket funding, he will explain to you how touring BD (as many as four times) instead of asking BD to tour is a big favour to BCB rather than being arrogance or whateveritis you want to believe.

I mean Eng and Aus are big teams right? When they tour Bangladesh BCB makes a whole lot of money. so why doesn't BCB just tell them you guys only come here and play because we make more money that way. why is this only applicable for India and not other teams?

Neel Here
June 8, 2010, 11:47 AM
lets just say you are right.
:rolleyes:
let's not pretend it is something I'm saying for the heck of it. that's intellectual dishonesty. OTOH if you are not aware of it then you have no business discussing this issue in the first place.
the revenue from India is MANY times that from Aus or Eng. India contributes 75-80% of ICC's total revenue. one example. http://contentsutra.com/article/419-icc-world-twenty20-ad-inventory-sold-out-says-espn-star-sports/ who were the title sponsors when Aus or Eng toured ? how many ground hoardings at dhaka stadium were from Aus and Eng ? compare with when India toured. check the zimbabwe tour, who are the title sponsors. what % of ground adverts are from India ? an India tour probably generates as much 4-5 times the revenue for BCB than when Eng or Aus tours.

so why doesn't BCB tell ECB and CA to stop scheduling us to tour their country, instead they can all just visit Bangladesh and we can make money. right? why is India the only exception to your theory? I mean Eng and Aus are big teams right? When they tour Bangladesh BCB makes a whole lot of money. so why doesn't BCB just tell them you guys only come here and play because we make more money that way. why is this only applicable for India and not other teams?
there can be a multitude of reasons,
a) ECB and CA don't care about generating revenue for BCB. they don't have an understanding with BCB as BCCI does.
b) BCB thinks touring in Aus and Eng is much more important from cricketing viewpoint than touring in India, where conditions are more or less similar to BD
c) Eng and Aus are big(revenue-wise) compared to the other cricket playing nations, not Ind. combined, they are worth less than a fourth of Ind.

I make this point again, if it is true, as you allege that BCCI is unfairly not asking BD to tour while touring BD more times than any other major nation, then we would have had BCB complaining about it to the press and ICC. have they ?
find those complaints and I'll admit I was wrong and you were correct.

And please don't BS about Aus hosting us in Darwin. At least Aus did host us right? I mean that's what we are talking about here right?
so why doesn't CA host SA or Eng at darwin ? why only BD and SL ?
mind you, I made the point to illustrate that it is loss making to host smaller teams at a big ground, because then CA or the ground authorities have to pay the city police for security, city administration for electricity etc. if the ticket sales do not cover this expenditure then the ground makes a loss. that's why they chose a ground like darwin where costs would be lower.

Neel Here is really pissing me with his BS theories.
that's because my comments(not theories) are disturbing your cosy little worldview about who is evil and who is good. ;)
what you are experiencing is called cognitive dissonance. google it.

June 8, 2010, 12:20 PM

The fact that you are really trying to persuade me into believe that BCCI actually has the best interest in mind for BCB just cracks me up. Do you know what BCCI said to BCB during the ICL saga. They said banned those players and we will create opportunities for Bangladeshi players in IPL. we all know how that turned out to be.

You will never accept anything is BCCI fault. They are such good guys they are our best friend they love us they got us test status.

neel here, since you are dieing for some articles talking about this issue I did some research. Unfortunately I wasn't a BC member when this stuff was discussed more thoroughly so I don't know which threads they were discussed it, but i'll look into that. But for now I have found evidence that In the original FTP there was Bangladesh Tour in India scheduled but later postponed. here is a paragraph from that.

"I have had talks with the officials of the BCCI yesterday," Ali Asghar, the president of the Bangladesh Board, told The Daily Star, "and it has been decided that we will not tour India in April. It is mainly because both the sides [were] pressed for time. But the BCCI has assured me that they will host us later next year."

that's the spirit ! all this self-flagellation was getting very boring. :)

........................
b_desy, am I being naive or are you being closed-minded ? ;)
funny that you don't even realize the contradictory statements you are making.
for example
a)BCCI owns ICC
b)BCCI hates BD and doesn't want BD to play tests
fact : BD is still playing tests and there has been no attempts by ICC to take away the test status. how do you reconcile the facts with your 'theory' ?
surely, at least one(likely both) of your statements is wrong ?! :D

BCCI is everyone's favourite whipping boy, except CSA every board has made comments against them at one time or other, why would BCB be suddenly reticent ?
regarding IPL, BCCI has no power to force a team to buy BD players but they did feature BD players in the auction didn't they ? I don't think they had promised anything more to BCB.
also, have you forgotten the BD players who did feature in IPL, one at a record price ?
it's another matter that the coach of KKR had cow dung in stead of brains and misused his services. again, how is that BCCI's fault ?

BCCI has many faults, these are not it. I am not going to accept them just because it suits your cozy world view about 'bad bad eendia' out to get your country. OTOH you could try some thinking on the lines of 'who benefits' and 'what's in it for them' rather than proceed on the assumption that BCCI is some comic book villain who commits villainy just for the heck of it !
if nothing else, it would help you reach less ridiculous conclusions. :)


The fact that you are really trying to persuade me into believe that BCCI actually has the best interest in mind for BCB just cracks me up. great attempt to put words in my mouth ! :rolleyes:
I never said that. what I said was if there is an understanding on these lines, it suits both parties, BCB because they get a hefty revenue and BCCI because they don't have to deal with the whiny subordinate boards who run the stadiums.

How many times do i have to tell you about darwin. dont change the freaking topic I told you they hosted us right?? yes or no is good enough. :rolleyes:
what topic did I change ? even after all this shouting yourself hoarse you still haven't understood the point I was making. go back and read it again please.

thanks for that article. here's a relevant part
and it has been decided that we will not tour India in April. It is mainly because both the sides [were] pressed for time.
so at least some part of what I suggested is borne out by this statement. who knows if they reached an understanding after this ?

a)BCCI owns ICC
b)BCCI hates BD and doesn't want BD to play tests
fact : BD is still playing tests and there has been no attempts by ICC to take away the test status. how do you reconcile the facts with your 'theory' ?
surely, at least one(likely both) of your statements is wrong ?!

I said BCCI practically owns ICC. Another words they have the power to make things happens. IMO that is the reason why there wasn't any Bangladesh tour of India scheduled for the current FTP.
I never said BCCI hates BD, nor did I say BCCI doesn't want BD to play test. Don't change my words ok. If you think I been saying BCCI doesn't want BD to play test then you haven't been reading any of my posts. The point i'm trying to make is, as a test nation BD has the right to play with every test nation in their country. and even after 10 long years we have been hosted by every single test nation except India. And I don't like the fact that you are making it sound like its BCCI wants to host us but BCB doesn't want to play in India because of financial reason. show me some articles that talk about something along that line ? Why in the world would BCB not want Bangladesh to play in India? I mean India is like the capital of Cricket right ? who would not want to play there?

BCCI has many faults, these are not it. I am not going to accept them just because it suits your cozy world view about 'bad bad eendia' out to get your country. OTOH you could try some thinking on the lines of 'who benefits' and 'what's in it for them' rather than proceed on the assumption that BCCI is some comic book villain who commits villainy just for the heck of it !


Show me where I said 'bad bad eendia is out to mycountry'. and I would like to know how you know about my world view? are you some kind of a jotishi? we are here discussing why BCCI hasn't hosted BD even after 10 years. How in the world do you know about my world view? Where did I talk about Bad Bad india out to get my country? Don't make stuff up ok.

I never said that. what I said was if there is an understanding on these lines, it suits both parties, BCB because they get a hefty revenue and BCCI because they don't have to deal with the whiny subordinate boards who run the stadiums.

show me some proof that BCB and BCCI has this mutual understanding. I mean surely if there is an understanding like this, someone out there's should have reported it someday right?

what topic did I change ? even after all this shouting yourself hoarse you still haven't understood the point I was making. go back and read it again please.


ok, so lets recap. what are we talking about here? oh right why hasn't BCCI hosted BD yet? so we agree on this part right? yes or no.

Assuming that was a yes, here is my next question. Did CA hosted BD? Yes or No.

I don't care if CA hosted us in Darwin or Ponting's backyard or even his living room. They hosted us right. and BCCI didn't? That's the only thing I am talking about. So you trying to explain to me why CA choose Darwin is changing topic and that is exactly why I didn't bother to read those parts of your post.

w/e I'm done talking about this. Its not like me trying to get my view across is going to make a whole lot of difference, its not like BCCI is going to just wake up one day and decide to host BD. Beside I'm not a expert on this topic either, as I'm sure there are a lot of information I don't know about. I'll wait till the next FTP is out and see what happens, this whole discussion should be a thread of its own. and i'm sure if this was in the Banglacricket section, people who know much more about this stuff would have posted.

p.s- I don't love the Indian cricket team or BCCI but that doesn't mean I hate India or Indians, nor do I think they are out to get us. don't make stuff up man that's not cool.
