if they wanted to keep all matches in dhaka, they could have played 2 games in Fatullah.

i don't understand why BCB just uses 2 venues, and sometimes just one when we have 2 beautiful grounds in Khulna and Bogra as well.

BCB tried, but they (NZ) didnt want to play on those venues (actually asked helicopter to transport players to those venues):o

I understand their reluctance to play in Fatullah. Nowadays it takes 3 hours minimum to travel to Narayanganj from Dhaka whereas back in the day it was 30-45 minute affair. And there aren't any standard hotels near the stadium where they can be stationed. So traveling 3 hours before a match is out of the question. And as for Khulna or Bogra I think the problem again is accommodation rather then the venue. The English weren't satisfied by their hotel in Chittagong so you could imagine what they'd have to say about hotels in Khulna and Bogra.

A lot of luxury hotels are coming up in Cox's Bazar. Maybe it can be our third cricketing venue after Dhaka and Chittagong.

Thanks for the explanation.....I couldnt have done better :)
I am eagerly waiting for the Cox Bazar one. Not only for Cricket, I believe it will also help boosting local economy and BD's tourism in long run.

If one of the matches gets cancelled due to poor weather can it be rearranged for the following day? We have a couple of days free between each match, also who decides whether to rearrange? Is it the boards of both countries?

ঢাকা, সেপ্টেম্বর ২৮ (বিডিনিউজ টোয়েন্টিফোর ডটকম) - দেশের মাটিতে বাংলাদেশকে শক্তিশালী প্রতিপক্ষ হিসেবেই দেখছেন নিউজিল্যান্ড অধিনায়ক ড্যানিয়েল ভেট্টোরি। তাই ওয়েলিংটন ছাড়ার আগে দলের খেলোয়াড়দের আত্মতুষ্টিতে না ভোগার জন্য সতর্ক করে দিয়েছেন তিনি।

নিউজিল্যান্ড দলের পৌঁছানোর কথা মঙ্গলবার রাতেই। এ সফরে দু'দল পাঁচটি একদিনের ম্যাচ খেলবে। সব খেলাই হবে মিরপুর শেরে বাংলা জাতীয় ক্রিকেট স্টেডিয়ামে।

এ বছরের ফেব্র"য়ারি মাসে নিউজিল্যান্ড সফরে বাংলাদেশ একদিনের সিরিজ হেরেছিল ৩-০ ব্যবধানে। কিন্তু ভেট্টোরি বলেছেন, নিজেদের মাটিতে বাংলাদেশ একেবারেই ভিন্ন প্রতিপক্ষ। যে কোনো দলকেই তারা চ্যালেঞ্জ ছুঁড়ে দিতে পারে।

নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে বাংলাদেশ জিতে একবারই, মিরপুর শেরে বাংলা স্টেডিয়ামে। ২০০৮ সালের ৯ অক্টোবর ওই খেলায় নিউজিল্যান্ডকে ৭ উইকেটে হারায় বাংলাদেশ। যদিও সিরিজ জিতেছিল কিউইরা ২-১ ব্যবধানে। এ পর্যন্ত দু'দল ১৭ বার মুখোমুখি হয়েছে। এর মধ্যে নিউজিল্যান্ড জিতেছে ১৬ টিতে।

'নিউজিল্যান্ড হেরাল্ড'কে ভেট্টোরি বলেন, ''আমাদের দেশে বাংলাদেশ ৩-০ ব্যবধানে সিরিজ হারলেও প্রতিটি খেলায় সমানতালে লড়েছিল। আমরা যদি মনে করি বাংলাদেশের মাটিতেও একইভাবে সিরিজ জিতব, তাহলে সেটা ভুল হবে। দল হিসেবে বাংলাদেশকে সমীহ না করে উপায় নেই। তাই সিরিজ জিততে চাইলে খেলোয়াড়দের সামর্থ্যরে সেরাটাই উজাড় করে দিতে হবে। এর কোনো বিকল্প নেই।''

একই সঙ্গে ভেট্টোরি দলের খেলোয়াড়দের বাংলাদেশের উইকেট এবং পরিবেশের সঙ্গে যতটা সম্ভব খাপ খাইয়ে নেয়ার পরামর্শ দিয়েছেন।

Micromax to sponsor ODI series

The Daily Star (http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=156541)
The five-match one-day series between Bangladesh and New Zealand will be named the Micromax ODI Cup after Micromax Informatic Limited bought the title sponsorship rights from Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

Micromax, a cell phone manufacturer from India, earned the sponsorship by providing US dollars 3.35 lakh.

"They have made the deal by providing US dollars 3.35 lakh that also included US dollar 1 lakh as prize money," informed BCB's new CEO Manzur Ahmed at a press conference in Mirpur yesterday.

The first match of the series will be held on October 5 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

BCB had to negotiate to make the deal as nobody else participated in the tender, but Manzur assured it would be different in the future.

"I got a little surprised. We are going to take a long-term planning regarding the issue and hope that things would be different in future and it will improve," said Manzur when asked whether cricket's market value is on the wane.

Micromax country manager Wahab Khan said that they were looking forward to a long-term association with Bangladesh cricket.

"We are really delighted that we could be involved with this one-day series. We are looking forward to a long-term association," said Wahab.

He also informed that they were trying to bring Bollywood's superstar couple Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna during the series.

Why in the world is an Indian company sponsoring our matches? Cricket must be pretty damn unpopular in Bangladesh.

It has got nothing to do with the popularity of cricket in Bangladesh, even the sponsor of our national team isn't a Bangladeshi company. Micromax is sponsoring the series as they want to make a mark in the huge market of cheap mobile phones in Bangladesh, which is now mostly taken by the Chinese phones.

well, to be honest. Micromax is better than those cheap Chinese ones. It has already penetrated into the local market due to its cheap price and good features. If only a BD company could make cell phones in cheap price and we could have saved so much money.
