ESPNStar, the official broadcaster of 2011 Cricket Worldcup, aired two episodes of 'Venue talk' where they portrayed the Bangladeshi venues.

Have a look from the following links:
1. Chittagong: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yvv9cq6m4jE

2. Dhaka: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGzMbgWkAIg&feature=mcv

The show was quite positive, somewhat portraying the thriving Bangladesh. But what I felt was that Dhaka could have shown in a much better way.
Another glitch in the Chittagong part of the show is that they provided the facts of M A Aziz stadium instead of ZAC!! C'mon they could have digged a bit more in Cricinfo...

Can't we as Bangla Cricket people come up with a presentation about the 2 cities and the ground with accurate info and showcase under a better light?
We can include short clips, pics and stats.... Put together and post on YouTube.....
I can help come up with some Dhaka and Chittagong city pics with attraction as well as share the video in facebook in my fan page "Bangladesh Cricket Lovers" and others...

It can be done if someone can come up with some latest pics of the stadiums and someone to make the video!

Cmon guys, we can do this as Bangla Cricket.... And show some effort for the World Cup rather than talking :)

Ok, got it. I will post the two videos on a online storage site Tonight or Tomorrow. I will either post the link, or those of you who are interest can PM me for the link since I don't think I am allowed to post link on this site.

Just watched. Dhaka stadium is looking Gorgeous whereas the Chittagong stadium is in dire condition. With less than 30 days remaining seems like they haven't installed even 50% of the seat. A disaster waiting to happen.

Dhaka

If you watch the video then you'll notice from those time keeping stumpy that it was taken around the third week of December. I mean a stumpy was showing 51 days left. :)

First of all.....ICC has applauded BCB for their work regarding preparing these venues for the WC. Mirpur's renovation and everything was done before the deadline of December 30th, that was set by ICC. And most of the other venues couldn't finish their work on time and still they are on progress.

Secondly, Chittagong is behind because initially they were not supposed to host any of the WC matches, and that's the reason why the process of renovation and all started late. So, it's not surprising if they take a bit more time to complete its overall work.

So all in all, I would say BCB hasn't done too badly!

Thanks so much for the files. I watched Dhaka. Lol AAK! /Facepalm. "One word to sum up Dhaka...." and then he goes on to write an essay. And what's with that girl talking about beriyani, and some more beriyani, and some other stuff that I didn't even understand, like people would know what she is talking about.

Can't believe only 30k people will get to go in. That's bad. I didn't know the capacity was that low. At least 50 would've been good.

^ Its not 30K its 25K. I think the number got reduced when they installed all the seats.

ZACS:Most amusing thing is that the shade above the press box and the other end were not in the original plan/design. If you look at those closely you will see that there is no chair or sitting facility under the shades. These are built on top of the roof!Will you ever see any building with two roofs? No. But in our country everything is possible.

Main thing is the construction company changed the whole plan, the shades were supposed to be on top of Grand stand and other galleries.

Nevertheless it looks better now :)
