Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has confirmed that the 2011 World Cup preparations will not hurt this season's domestic calendar.

Country's major cricket venues in Dhaka and Chittagong are under construction for the showcase event, which will be inaugurated on February 17 next year at the Bangabandhu National Stadium. As co-hosts, Bangladesh will stage eight matches including two of the quarterfinals. That gave rise to the whispers that the game's governing body may cut short this season's calendar but BCB's tournament committee chairman Gazi Ashraf Hossain said they have no such plans.

"We can assure everyone that all the domestic competitions will take place as per schedule and as far as I know the season's calendar is all but complete. True, there is an issue with the availability of the major venues like Mirpur, Fatullah and Chittagong due to construction work but we are focusing on the other venues across the country to run the show in this season," assured Gazi Ashraf yesterday.

"There is no uncertainty over any competition including premier division cricket league but some matches may be held outside Dhaka due to time constraint. We must complete all the competitions by January next year. You know the clubs have already started roping in their favoured players," he added.

The season is likely to kick off with the women's national league from September 15, which will be followed by longer-version competition of the National Cricket League (NCL).

Gazi Ashraf informed that they would stick to the changed format they had made last season. The governing body overhauled the country's lone first-class competition last year brining wholesale changes which has reduced the number of games due to shifting of league format.

"Though initially many opposed the new format but later everyone praised it. The short duration of the tournament and intensity of the competition made us believe that this format is effective for us," said Ashraf, a former national skipper.

As per draft calendar, the Premier Division T20 will start from November 27 after the completion of the NCL longer-version and then the most coveted 50-over competition will likely start from December 8. The NCL one-day competition, which wasn't held last year due to time constraint, will take place after conclusion of the premier league.

Everything however will be finalised after getting the go-ahead from cricket operations committee as there are some international commitments during that time. New Zealand will arrive on September 20 to play two Tests and three one-day matches while the board is also planning a tri-nation one-day tournament after that involving West Indies and Zimbabwe. There are also scheduled tours for the second string Bangladesh A team.

Gazi Ashraf also informed that they are working on bringing changes to the character of the pitches in domestic competitions. "We must come out of the spin-oriented pitches. We must give our pace bowlers enough opportunity to explore in the domestic scene so that our cricketer can compete well at the international stage," said Ashraf

I'm not so sure about that. I thought they looked pretty worn out this past month. A couple of months of rest would do them good....

Good news overall though. We cant stop the entire domestic calendar for a World Cup we have no chance of winning...

But more than the Triseries I'd prefer a 5 ODI vs WI & a 3 ODI vs Zim.

Problems starts with less FC matches. Then poor wicket and infrastructure adds to that problem.

very good news.

i think the FC tournament needs to played 6 teams home and away basis. not the way we played last time.

both the NCl and DPL 50 over games will be good preparation for players before the ODI. though from next season i will prefer the DPL be played as the 40 over format.

the t20 tournaments may be played after the WC. no need of playing too much t20 before WC. we may think of rearranging them after the WC and now concentrate on test and ODI.

2 tests and 5 ODIs vs Zimbabwe (Probably a tri series)

BCB to discuss burning issues today

The board of directors of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) will meet today to take decisions on some important issues like appointment of the support staff for the national team, domestic calendar and making the National Cricket Academy functional.

With only six months to go before the 2011 World Cup, BCB are yet to decide on the supporting staff for the national team. Interestingly they used three local coaches for the last three tours which has raised many eyebrows and many believe that it upset team spirit.

"There is hardly any time for us to take decisions regarding the support staff with the World Cup knocking at the door. Definitely it would be one of the major agendas in the meeting and hope a concrete decision would be taken about fielding coach, bowling coach and the psychologist for the national team," informed BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yunus.

"We have received some applications and have been contacting at personal level as well. Hope we can make a shortlist in the meeting," he added.

After Champaka Ramanayake left due to illness, the bowlers have been rudderless, to say the least. They have looked lost when the pressure is on, especially in the one-dayers. Shafiul Islam, for example, has impressed with picking up wickets but has been exorbitantly giving away runs in the shorter format. Rubel Hossain has also shown a few glimpses of good form but there hasn't been any sustained effort from the paceman. One is certain that the absence of a bowling coach is hurting the progress of Shafiul and Rubel, the bad form of Syed Rasel and Abdur Razzak clearly shows that even the senior bowlers need guidance.

The Tigers have also suffered at the absence of a fielding coach and ahead of a big tournament like the World Cup, the presence of a psychologist is crucial.

The board has some other burning issues to be solved immediately too. To make the National Cricket Academy functional is one of the major issues as they got the two-storied building with all the necessary modern facilities but still has not been furnished with all the components that will make it work.

The Rafiqul Alam-led selection panel, which is under tremendous pressure after the Tigers' ignominious defeats against lowly Ireland and Netherlands, is likely to get the extension in the meeting till next June.

The board will also approve the appointment of new CEO and CFO. Former cricketer Manzur Ahmed is all set to join as new CEO from September.

The domestic calendar will be also approved during the meeting. BCB has already confirmed that the 2011 World Cup preparations will not hurt this season's domestic calendar.

"There are 32 agendas in the list for tomorrow's (Thursday's) meeting," informed Yunus.

I was looking at the Indian domestic system, and could not help but wonder, why doesn't our board think about two 4-day leagues?[one being the NCL] Understandably, most of the national players won't be able to play in the second one, but why not give the other blokes a chance to play during the off season?
According to me, the off-season is way too long in Bangladesh, 7-8 months is a way too long break. I think BCB should consider another longer version league with possibly the second tier players[may not be FC, but should expose players to longer version] This should give the academy/A team players chance to improve, younger players to learn and stay in cricket for greater portion of the year.
I understand it would be hard to organize such a league, but from my experiences, it's not impossible to find 6 more grounds where proper cricket can be played. [Comilla, Rangpur, Tangail stadiums etc] If BCB is really eager to do so, i think its very much doable

yeah.
10% increase in salary is too high to justify inflation. An average yearly increase for civil servant job is 3-5% in BD and 3-6% in developed countries.
BCB staffs should not take more than 3-5% increase and the remainder should be invested to create facilities for cricket.

we have decent stadiums in couple of the districts but BCB doesn't bother spending a dime on them. I remember going to the sylhet stadium back in 2000 even than that was in decent shape, it wouldn't cost BCB a fortune to fix it up a little. But nah they too busy arranging meetings in Cox Bazar. The people that come to work for BCB they know exactly how it works and just keep on using those little loop holes and live their life. that's all they give a crap about

Maybe the BCB does not want to appoint any new coaches until after Eid which is on the 10th Sept, no point appointing anyone now because Ramadan starts soon and the players will take a rest, so i think that we will see some activity in September.
I think the right way is to play as many ODIs as possible, they should have invited Ireland over
and should try to get the Windians for about 3 ODIs, I think the Windians will be in SL in November.

Longer version may not be excluded this year from the calender.
uesday, August 10, 2010Sports
<fieldset> Long-version may be back

</fieldset> Sports Reporter
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) may step back from their decision not to arrange any longer-version cricket before the 2011 World Cup where Bangladesh is one of three co-hosts.
To provide enough one-day matches for the Tigers ahead of the showcase event, the board has already slashed the two-match Test series at home against New Zealand and instead is going to host five one-day internationals in September-October.
After the last board meeting it had also been confirmed that the longer-version of the National Cricket League (NCL), the lone first-class competition in the country, will take place after the World Cup, which will be inaugurated on February 17 next year at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.
But BCB's director and tournament committee chairman Gazi Ashraf Hossain informed yesterday that they are thinking of holding longer-version matches in at least the first round of the NCL.
"The cricket operations committee is working on the issue. It was supposed to be placed before the today's [Monday] technical committee meeting but it was postponed. There is a chance to start the season with the National League longer-version matches because we don't want to waste any time," said Gazi Ashraf.
"The national players will be busy with the home series against New Zealand but we can easily complete the first round of matches with the rest of the players. I think the national players will get enough opportunities to play limited-over games before the World Cup so there is no point of upsetting the domestic calendar," the former national skipper added.
As per the draft calendar, the Premier Division T20 will start from November 27 and the most coveted 50-over competition will likely start from December 8. The NCL one-day competition, which wasn't held last year due to time constraint, will take place after the conclusion of the Premier League.
"So we have September and October in our hands and there is no point to waste the season's two months," said Ashraf adding that they are not interested to hurt the domestic calendar for the World Cup.
In this season the Premier Division League matches may be held outside Dhaka due to the unavailability of the major venues like Mirpur and Fatullah due to construction work for the World Cup.
The country's major cricket venues in Dhaka and Chittagong are under construction for the mega event. Bangladesh will stage eight matches including two of the quarterfinals.

^^^ they did not wanted to exclude it they wanted NCL FC after the WC2011. It makes sense only if we have much time left after April 2nd. Plus we have series against Aussies (according to FTP) and 2 test match with kiwis. How would you fit all these matches.

I think BCB should sit down and think about it. I say play the FC match anyway. It will benefit the players wh are not part national squad.

It seems to me this BCB lacks determination and they are not confident about their work.
First they have cancelled tests
Second they have decided to delay or cancel FC league,changed their decision due to criticism.Planning to start the season with FC but national players will not play.
But it seems to me ultimately national players will also play FC league.So where is the justification of cancelling test series?

BCB takes U-turn on NCL
A team’s West Indies tour may be scrapped
Azad Majumder
Bangladesh Cricket Board is likely scrap A team’s tour to West Indies in September-October to enable the players to participate in the upcoming National Cricket League, scheduled to start next month.
The BCB has deviated from its previous decision of not holding the NCL before the World Cup and rather decided to start the season with the maiden first-class tournament of the country.
It has also been decided that the tournament will start on September 25 and the first phase will be completed by October 23. The BCB will then start the one-day version of the league to help the players prepare for the World Cup.
However, some members of the Board’s technical evaluation committee opposed the idea of holding the first-class tournament without both national and A team players, which will take the glamour off it.
New Zealand will be arriving in late September to play a five-match one-day series, which will end on October 17. It means the Tigers will miss bulk of the league and now if the A team players also do not play the BCB officials fear it will fail to attract any sponsor for the competition.
‘We are now seriously thinking of postponing the A team’s tour to West Indies., It is reciprocal tour so we cannot cancel it. But we are in talks with the West Indies Cricket Board so that we make the tour later,’ said Jalal Yunus, BCB spokesman, who is also a member of technical evaluation committee.
The meeting of technical evaluation committee on Tuesday was also attended by Cricket Committee of Dhaka Metropolis member secretary Iqbal Yusuf Chowdhury on invitation to finalise the domestic calendar for the upcoming domestic season.
Yusuf said they have tentatively agreed to hold one-day version of the NCL following the longer version from October 26. It will end on November 26 and the CCDM will start the Premier Division Twenty20 on the very next day.
In the meantime, the CCDM will complete the inter-club players’ transfer from November 8-11. Dhaka Premier League, the most glamorous domestic competition, will start from December 8, four days after the end of the Premier League Twenty20.
The Dhaka Premier League is likely to conclude on January 25. The final phase of NCL longer-version and the NCL Twenty20 League will be staged after the World Cup.
The BCB officials said if they can stick to the calendar the national players will miss maximum two matches of Dhaka Premier League for the Zimbabwe series, who will play five one-day internationals in December.
It has been decided that around 20 to 25 players will be placed under national coach Jamie Siddons and they will not need to practise with their respective clubs for the league matches.
