Australia's top cricketers are listed to travel to Bangladesh for the series after the World Cup Final in the Indian capital, Mumbai, on April 2.

Oh, look how cool they are. they are already predicting they will make the world cup final. last time this is what one of the Indian player had said to Mashrafee, and the rest was history.

Things haven't changed all that much in six years. Last month Anil Kumble told him that the Indians were worried about the window between the World Cup and the tour to Bangladesh in May being too small, the subtext being, you know, that they would be around till the end of the competition. A few days later the two sides met at the Queen's Park Oval...

After getting their a**es handed to them by SL in their own backyard, one would think Aussies would come back to reality and realize that they are not what they used to be in early 2000s.

Come'n Aus, come to BD, you guys needed to miracles from Ponting AND Gilchrist to save your a**es in fatullah, and that was with McGrath, Gilespie, Warne, McGill, Hayden and what not. If you dare come to BD with your 'future superstars', aka Marshs, White[up and coming at the tender age of 28], Steve smith and see what Shakib, Tamim and Mashs have in store for you. Come to BD if you dare.

Nielsen launches tirade at critics (http://au.sports.yahoo.com/cricket/news/article/-/8304790/nielsen-launches-tirade-critics)

Coach Tim Nielsen has launched a vehement attack on all the "uneducated opinions" being directed at the under-fire Australian cricket team.

Nielsen concedes the recent 2-1 one-day series defeat to Sri Lanka was poor, but believes the criticism of Australia's preparations for the Ashes and reports of infighting within the team are totally unfounded.

"As is often the case, as soon as we lose a couple of games there is all sorts of talk about disharmony and infighting within the team," Nielsen wrote on a blog on the Cricket Australia website.

"This couldn't be further from the truth and a standard barb thrown by those outside the group searching for a reason why we are losing.

"Ultimately, we lost because we didn't bat, bowl or field well enough and Sri Lanka outplayed us in the first two ODI's.

"While it has been tough ... there was no panic or infighting I can promise you.

"This team is tough enough not to allow uneducated opinion upset it."

While the Australians were playing the Sri Lankan series, England have been playing tour matches around the country as they seek a breakthrough series win Down Under.

Both Nielsen and Cricket Australia have said the one-dayers were scheduled to help prepare for next year's World Cup, while they are adamant there is enough time for the Test players to prepare for the longest form of the game.

Curiously, though, the Ashes squad will be announced on Monday, before the final round of Sheffield Shield matches.

"I don't remember anything in my time as coach like the public and media scrutiny the team has seen this week," Nielsen continued.

"It is certainly made all the more difficult when results aren't coming and everyone in Australia has an opinion to how to fix things up.

"Most important for us as a team is to ensure that we don't panic and keep our eye firmly on the targets we have set for this summer.
"We now have a couple of weeks to prepare for the Ashes series and I think all involved are looking forward to using this time to complete their personal preparation in Sheffield Shield cricket and be 100 per cent right come the first Test in Brisbane."

Aussie coach is under lot of pressure due to recent performance. They are lacking in confidence for sure. No wonder they got scared of BanglaWash by Bangladesh !!! khekz

The Aussies should actually play the series with us before the world cup. They will get the feeling of some competitive cricket, which they have lacked during the past few months against tougher opponents. A series draw with us will give them enough boost of confidence and contribute to their world cup preparation.

Its inevitable.
The series would be reschuduled.

Not only just the Aussies, I think our boys would be eager to play in the IPL, given the sheninigans. Our top performers like Tamim and Sakib are due this year in the IPL circus and I'd say even the board would not want any clash of the scheduling with the mighty IPL.

Better not be scrapped, but be rescheduled later part of the year.

I was thinking the same thing but then I saw Australia's fixture list before the World Cup, they are fully booked. After the Ashes test series, which finishes in early January, they play two T20 matches and then 7 ODI against England!! This takes them into February which is when the World Cup would begin.

In contrast Bangladesh don't have anything set after the Zimbabwe series which ends mid December. Most of the other teams have setup ODI series during January; Australia host England, New Zealand host Pakistan, South Africa host India. This leaves Sri Lanka and West Indies who are playing each other in December and I don't think they have anything booked for January. So I suppose Bangladesh could try and set something up against either of these two teams in January. As West Indies are in our group I don't think it would be a good idea to expose them to our spin attack, so this leaves Sri Lanka. We could host or tour them, and maybe even setup a tri series including an Associate if possible.

7 ODIs is too many after 5 tests and 2 T20s and it is going to harm both Aus and Eng. We could concentrate on our preparation after the Zimbabwe series. Hopefully we will be on a high after beating NZ and Zim (if happens) and then starting fresh at the world cup is an advantage.

It doesn't matter for us.... We have a pretty good chance against teams likie England, Aus, SA, Kiwis and West Indies because of their weakness against spin. Its India, Sri Lanka we need to start worrying about because these 2 teams are the best teams right now and will stay like that for a long time!

It's not just this move, if ICC does waste days to make an FTP, they should make sure it is enforced. We still have a test series in Aus pending, a Pak tour pending and god knows what else. ICC talks about globalization of cricket and allows India/SA/Eng/Aus to act whatever way they want.

It is said, it will be rescheduled...not cancelled


Ermmm...here the word "resechedule" actually means "cancelled" because, just how many tests, against us, do you think have been so-called resecheduled? Australia themselves have "resecheduled the ttwo tests we were supposed to play in Australia, but has it ever been "resecheduled" again? Instead, they reshedule the tests they are supposed to play in Bangladesh. India has "resecheduled" countless tests against us, and have yet remains the only country that havent hosted us in their country. Pakistan have rescheduled one of their tests and recently, Newzealand too "rescheduled" their tests, against us. So, this tour has effectively been cancelled and not "resecheduled" because our Cricket Board will never take any steps to see those tests really rescheduled.

I think only the English have truly kept their promise to us and ICC(they toured and hosted us during the Habibul Bashar Era and recently toured us again and hosted us)


For the record, I m sure,the Aussies have pulled out for two reasons, one is ofcourse IPL and the money it offers, but the other reason is, because the Aussies are definitely worried of losing face to Bangladesh in that tour with their ordinary new generation of cricketers and I m notjoking about this. I mean, even their best side almost lost against us in Fatullah, and now, their average side has to face a much better Bangladesh side in the heat of April which is what they are scared of.

Man, I m so pissed because I was really looking forward to this tour, just like how I looked forward to the England vs Bangladesh home and away matches in which our guys really did give the poms quite a run for their money as they had to play well t beat us.

No matter what anyone says, I fully believe this Bangladesh team is fully capable of beating this Australian team in our own soil because we have gone toe-to-toe with the current best two test teams in the ICC ranking and I think we have played well against both England and worried the Indians alot in one of the tests, (if only our 2nd innings batting was better and if only Tendulkar hadnt played a gem of an innings to rescue the indians from an embarrasment in the first innings, that test could've been ours)...So, my beielf isnt just founded on blind faith, I trul think, this generation of Bangladesh cricketers are fully capable of beating the present generation of Aussie cricketers in our own soil (provided if we can beat the Zimbos in the upcoming series to clear all my doubts about this generation of cricketers).

Beautiful news. In 2004-5 Aus were at their peak, with bowlers like McGrath, Lee, Warne threatening our somewhat feeble batting line up, Australia's batting was even more alarming with Hayden on top till Gilchrist at 7. This time, a much weaker Aus team will face a much stronger Bangladesh side. Should be a fascinating battle.

Whether Aus ends up sending a 2nd team will depend on their[and our] world cup campaign. If Aus fails, they will send their main team. If we succeed they will send their main team, if both happens together, they will bring back Warne and Hayden and then send them to Bangladesh.

I think other than Michael Clarke there are no other prospective members of the Aussie tour party that has toured Bangladesh before. I am expecting Ponting to retire after the World Cup. Our pitches are very different to the traditional Indian wickets hence their previous subcontienent experience does not count. Am I being too optimistic in expecting a Test win (hence an overall series draw or better) and winning the ODI series? Given that we rid ourselves of the deadwoods, the only barrier I see is the mental frailties and the inferiority complex (given that they have grown up watching an invincible Aussie side dominate World cricket) of the players (barring Shakib and Tamim). Also the sledging could be an issue for some. It gets seriously ugly especially when they are down.

Most of the comments are made on this thread are still based on the belief that we are kinda still the so called Minnows and Australia is just ignoring us. Thats a by gone. Bangladesh, in ODIs, are no longer the minnow nor the improving side. They are the improved side. When you have the best ICC 2 year long all-rounder in the team, best left arm spinners of the world in the same team and the Wisden criceter of the year in the team,, it is no longer a team that other countries ignore. Just look at the CEAT ratings..http://ceatcricketrating.com/home.asp . Bangladesh is rated #5 above South Africa, NZ, Pakistan. Yes, it is an indian rating system but it tells you the story pretty much.

So, lets not get upset with the Aussie decision to delay the tour. Let that be. We will be waiting and at Mirpur pitch, even the gamblers will raise their bets!!

I'd rather play the tests than ODI. Whenever we postpone Test matches it never happens. If they do a 2 week tour they can easily do 2 test match series. They won't need any practice match since they just had the world cup in subcontinent so condition shouldn't be a problem. Also according to the FTP Aus is suppose to host Zim for 2 test and 3 ODI in June 2011. So I doubt that series will take place at least not the test matches. Also according to the FTP we are going to Zim in Aug 2011 for 2 test and 5 ODI's. Well we are not even sure if those tests will take place. I'd rather bring the 5 ODI's down to 3 ODI if we have to make space. I don't get what kind of problem we have accommodating NZ's new request. Unless i'm looking at an older version of FTP which hasn't been updated yet.

[বাংলা]অস্ট্রেলিয়ার সঙ্গে শুধুই ওয়ানডে!

ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক
আইসিসির ফিউচার ট্যুরস প্রোগ্রাম (এফটিপি) অনুযায়ী ২০১১ সালের বিশ্বকাপের পরপরই অস্ট্রেলিয়ার বাংলাদেশ সফর করার কথা। কিন্তু মাসখানেক আগে অস্ট্রেলিয়ান সংবাদমাধ্যমের প্রতিবেদনে এসেছিল অন্য খবর। ইন্ডিয়ান প্রিমিয়ার লিগের (আইপিএল) চতুর্থ আসরের সময়সূচির সঙ্গে মিলে যাওয়ায় নির্ধারিত সফরটি পিছিয়ে যাওয়ার সম্ভাবনার সঙ্গে সেটি বাতিল হওয়ার আশঙ্কার খবরও দিয়েছিল তারা। যদিও বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি) বলছে, এপ্রিলেই বাংলাদেশে আসছে অস্ট্রেলিয়া। তবে দুই টেস্ট ও তিন ওয়ানডের সিরিজ খেলতে নয়, ওই সফরে তারা শুধুই ওয়ানডে খেলবে। সিরিজটি তিন না পাঁচ ম্যাচের হবে, সেটি নিয়েই নাকি এখন ক্রিকেট অস্ট্রেলিয়ার (সিএ) সঙ্গে দেনদরবার চলছে।
বিশ্বকাপের আগে টেস্ট ক্রিকেট নয়, বাংলাদেশের প্রস্তুতির মূল সুরটা এমনই। এ জন্য গত অক্টোবরে দেশের মাঠে নিউজিল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে দুই টেস্ট ও তিন ওয়ানডের সিরিজ হয়ে গেছে শুধুই পাঁচ ওয়ানডের। ১৯ ফেব্রুয়ারি থেকে ২ এপ্রিল পর্যন্ত অনুষ্ঠেয় বিশ্বকাপের পরই অস্ট্রেলিয়া সিরিজ দিয়ে টেস্টের জগতে ফেরার কথা ছিল বাংলাদেশের। কিন্তু আবার তাদের টেস্ট খেলা বিলম্বিত হচ্ছে আগামী মে মাসে নিউজিল্যান্ডের বাংলাদেশ সফরে আসা পর্যন্ত। যে সফরে দুই টেস্টের সঙ্গে কিছু ওয়ানডেও খেলতে চেয়েছিল কিউইরা। কিন্তু বিসিবি তাতে সম্মত হয়নি।
ওদিকে আবার এপ্রিলেই অস্ট্রেলিয়াকে দুটি টেস্ট খেলতে রাজি করানো যায়নি। অবশ্য বিসিবির প্রধান নির্বাহী কর্মকর্তা মঞ্জুর আহমেদ নিশ্চিত যে ঝুলে যাওয়া সিরিজ মাঠে গড়াবেই, 'আপাতত টেস্ট সিরিজটি হচ্ছে না বটে। তবে আজ হোক কিংবা কাল, এটা হতেই হবে। কারণ আইসিসির টেস্ট লিগ চালু হয়ে যাচ্ছে।' যেটি টেস্ট ক্রিকেটের প্রথম বিশ্ব চ্যাম্পিয়ন বেছে নেওয়ার লিগ। ২০১৩ সালে আইসিসি র‌্যাংকিংয়ের শীর্ষ চারটি দল এ শিরোপার জন্য প্লে অফ খেলবে। এফটিপি অনুযায়ী খেলার বাধ্যবাধকতার চেয়ে অস্ট্রেলিয়ার কাছে র‌্যাংকিংয়ে সুসংহত অবস্থানের জন্য সিরিজভিত্তিক পয়েন্টও খুব গুরুত্বপূর্ণ হওয়ার কথা। এখন চার নম্বরে থাকা অস্ট্রেলিয়ার পক্ষে তাই সহজ প্রতিপক্ষ বাংলাদেশের বিপক্ষে টেস্ট সিরিজ অবহেলা করার সুযোগ কম, এটাই বোধ হয় বিসিবির লাইফলাইন।
দেশের মাঠে দুই টেস্টের সিরিজ নিয়ে হয়তো এ জন্যই আশাবাদী হতে পারছে তারা। কিন্তু অস্ট্রেলিয়ার মাটিতে পাওনা দুই টেস্টের সিরিজ নিয়ে এখনো সিএর তরফ থেকে কোনো সাড়া নেই বলেই জানা গেছে। যেটি ২০০৮ সালের আগস্টে হওয়ার কথা ছিল। কিন্তু বেইজিং অলিম্পিকের টিভি সম্প্রচার সময়সূচির সঙ্গে সংঘাতের দোহাই দিয়ে সে যাত্রা বাংলাদেশকে শুধুই তিন ওয়ানডের আতিথ্য দেয় তারা। এবং প্রতিশ্রুতি দেয়, ২০১০ সালে টেস্ট সিরিজ খেলার জন্য আমন্ত্রণ জানানো হবে। সেই প্রতিশ্রুতি তো পূরণ হয়ইনি, উল্টো অনিশ্চিত হয়ে গেছে।
ম্যাচের সংখ্যা চূড়ান্ত না হলেও এপ্রিলে বাংলাদেশ-অস্ট্রেলিয়ার ওয়ানডে সিরিজ নিশ্চিত। দুই ধরনের খসড়া সূচিও তৈরি করা হচ্ছে। একটা তিন ওয়ানডের, অন্যটা পাঁচ ম্যাচের। তিন ম্যাচের সিরিজ হলে সব ম্যাচই হবে মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা জাতীয় স্টেডিয়ামে। আর সিরিজ পাঁচ ম্যাচের হলে দুটি হবে চট্টগ্রামের জহুর আহমেদ চৌধুরী স্টেডিয়ামে। বিসিবির প্রধান নির্বাহী জানালেন, 'তিনটি না পাঁচটি ম্যাচ হবে, দুই বোর্ড এখন সেটিই পর্যালোচনা করে দেখছে। আশা করি, আমরা এ মাসের শেষের দিকে বিষয়টা চূড়ান্ত করতে পারব।'[/বাংলা]

This tour has to take place a week after World Cup. IPl will most likely start 3 or 4th week of april and go on until may. So Australia probably won't leave Bangladesh (given they make it to semi final or final) and do the the tour all together before heading back home.

Ajfar
December 27, 2010, 12:34 AM
^ Well its at the end of July not the beginning. Plus we are not sure if those 2 tests will take place or not. chances are it will just end up being just those 5 ODI's. So i'm sure if we ask them we can schedule the tour in August. NZ wants to play the test series right after the IPL. IPL will most likely go on till the end of May. I remember reading somewhere Lalit Modi said 2011 IPL will be about 51 days long. So If they start the IPL in the 3rd week of April, IPL will take up all of May for sure. If you look at the FTP NZ has absolutely nothing going on after World Cup. Their next tour is schedule for November. That's why they are going out of their way to get some additional matches. So we can make that NZ tour in June/July and still keep up with FTP if we want to.

James sutheralnd the cricket australia ceo says australia don't play tests again till august srilanka,so maybe there is no bangladesh tour.
I guess 2012 new ftp comes in and australia only played 2 test series vs bangladesh.

From Sydney Morning Herald


As speculation continued to mount over Ponting's future as Test captain, Cricket Australia revealed it had a ''very high'' expectation the post-World Cup tour to Bangladesh would be limited to just four one-day matches.

the author is actually lamenting that BD tests aren't gonna happen...what a change from the tone of the white media!

BCB should go for the test matches, or at least secure a reschedulement. we can't go on forfeiting every other test we're scheduled for.

and why 4 ODIs? are we giving AUS a shot at drawing the series or soemthing?

It would have been a great challenge to see who between these two scores more runs in that test series. Ponting or Rubel.

I agree. We must get the tests scheduled in the calendar ASAP. The more you wait, worse it gets. Test series with AUS, PAK got pushed and never happened.

I personally think scheduling the tough series during second part of the year would be good. Our players would be out of test for almost 10 months considering they will play the next one in May with Kiwis. We need some time to get used to test again, if we arrange something in July/August with Aussies somehow, we have a pretty good chance, considering the hot and humid weather and allowing some time for the national players in the NCL or other tests matches with NZ and ZIM before that...

Rubel will still edge him by three runs in the series. 56 > 53 ..:floor:

4 ODI's Only, No Test

RICKY PONTING faces seven months of waiting to atone for another failed Ashes campaign following revelations that April's tour of Bangladesh is unlikely to include any Tests.

As speculation continued to mount over Ponting's future as Test captain, Cricket Australia revealed it has a ''very high'' expectation the post-World Cup tour to Bangladesh will be limited to just four ODIs.

The Bogra District Stadium in Rajshahi was one of the five purpose-built cricket grounds established in the run-up to the 2004 Under-19 World Cup. It was finally granted full international status in January 2006, ahead of Sri Lanka's visit to the country. Bogra serves as the nerve-centre of northern Bangladesh and the promise of international cricket is a significant step in its development as a city of note. The recent construction of a four-star hotel brings the city into line with ICC lodging requirements.

Right. Who controls the ground ? Is it the local council ? The Bangladesh Board ? Has first class cricket been played on it recently ?

Im serious about this.

Oh yeah, and can I get details on the hotel, including room rates (all inclusive, and please put it in US dollars). Also, transport links to Bogra.

i noticed that the article was written by an asian...but its no different than me (the son of immigrants) writing in the Tennessean about USA basketball...my take would be no different than the standard "white" american's.

this fellow is no doubt an asian-australian, because had be come fresh off the boat he wouldn't have given two chopsticks about cricket.

BCB controls the ground. Beside the ODIs, recent Dhaka Premiere League matches are being played at that ground, so probably its in good shape.
It will take 5 hours from Dhaka (airport) to Bogra by road.
You will find details about the accommodation at: http://www.hotelnazgarden.com/home.php

May I know why? (just curious)

Perhaps also consider BKSP ground (owning instt. is BKSP) and Fatullah Cricket ground where Aus v Ban 1st Test 2006 took place. Fatullah is managed by National Sports Council, from what I've been told.

In both these cases, they're near Dhaka city, so there are some international hotels here (Westin, Radisson, Pan Pacific, Sheraton)
