They shut down all the gates 3 hours before the ceremony started! First of all ticket is too expensive, then there is huge problem with parking, you have to walk like a mile after parking, then it takes forever to buy a ticket at the gate and spend hours and hours just to get in! Going to the stadium is like going to a prison, unless of course you are a VIP.

These idiots need half a day to sell some handful ticket at the gate and need 5-6 hours to let people enter through 3 steps of security checks for only few thousand people!

These idiots should learn from USA how to sell and fill up 100,000 people in 1 hour!!

Expect an empty stadium everyday!

also there was a problem regarding marketing and creating the hype.i have pointed my finger to the bollyS coz many of my friends didnt even watch the prog live on tv bcoz of their presence.

Its not that bad but not that exciting either. Its quite evident that this tournament was highly rushed. Some of the commentators and the hosts dont know jack about BD and cant pronounce the team name to save their lives. The worst thing is the high ticket prices, you can feel the total lack of atmosphere in the stadium. Nevertheless, I hope BPL will be successful.

^^ Agree. Its feels rushed and it will take some time for the commentators and foreign players to adjust in these conditions. But as lamisa was saying somewhere, BPL was on in every TV set and Radio. So the local people will also get involved soon and would fill the stadium to see magical Gayle or vintage Murali/Jayasuriya.

BPL tickets at Tk 200!

Dhaka, Feb 10 (bdnews24.com)—Prices of tickets to watch Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) matches from the gallery have been reduced to Tk 200 from Tk 500.

Shihab Trading, the firm that won the ticketing rights, made the announcement in a media statement on Friday.

1 st day of BPL, i must say crossed my expectation apart from two things.

Good sides:-

1. All matches went above 150+ runs.
2. Kapali, Sabbir, Riyad, Imrul, Enamul played really well. A good day for some of our local lads.
3. 1st day itself a 200+ game and a century.

Bad sides:-

1. Bad fielding of local players(very bad i mean).
2. Lack of competition.

All in all a good day i conclude. Lets hope it carries on and heats up the tourney.

the most dissapointing thing was the attendance.... It was nearly empty stadium. Even a U-19 game against Papuan New Gunea had more attendance at Shaheed Chandu Stadium!! I am just baffled that there were practically no attendance as if it was a Kho Kho match going on there.

The players were rusty other than Bangladeshi national team players and ofcourse Gayle!! I am glad that he performed because a big player like him doing good also gives the sponsors a boost that their 550K was not in vain. But Murli dissapointed. I was annoyed that he was saying that he will get ready for IPL with this tournament!! He couldve been more sensitive to his current team.

All in all, I am glad that the game went on as planned despite the hurried nature in how this tournament was organized. They pulled it off..BCB can take credit for that. For the last 2 days, my social networking has been fending-off the disgruntled annoying Pakistani and Indian fans on twitter....seriously they are not happy at all that BPL is actually happening!!

Sums it up pretty nice !

Don't underestimate what these type of tournament does it for the psyche of our fragile cricketers. We all agree that mentally we lose half the game before it even starts ( our national team players ). Now, we get to rub shoulders with some big names ( though not a lot, but good enough for a start ), on our turf, on our tournament, and that alone should provide a sense of belonging, which could translate into erasing some mental barrier that plagues us at the sight of big name cricketers as opposition.

Exactly. BPL is seemingly on its way to being a hit, and if the league is here to stay, then the only way from here is to go forward. Remembering how IPL's first season was compared to the last one, there's been steady improvements when it comes to branding and marketing itself. BPL may not reach the heights of IPL, but as a cricketing nation, we should be happy that we have a league that is being recognized, unlike ICL.

Most of us prefer Test matches and ODIs over T20s, but now that this tourny is here, we might as well look forward to it and expect good things to come out. Our local players (i.e. the young guns and the lesser knowns) and how they perform is a big reason why I'm following BPL, and I hope a couple of them shine through and emerge as stars, as Pat Symcox alluded to in the commentary.

Yes exactly.

In the Barisal/Sylhet match, our young prodigy Noor Hossain Munna was visibly rattled, especially against Gayle. He'd have run out of the field if he could. These guys will learn so much on how to keep composure and be mentally strong.

Rabz
February 11, 2012, 12:47 AM
Best thing to happen out of this BPL : Our young guns will be international match ready even before playing their first game. That will have a significant effect on these boys and I believe we can reduce the gap and the level of struggle our new ones face, especially when they cross the threshold of going international from domestic.
Nutshell : We will be more competitive in the coming days.

Guys like Nur,Shabbir, Asif, Mominul et all can only get better with this kind of never before exposure.

More importantly - if the BPL survives, the money in it will make cricket an even more appealing career option for youngsters. We have a large section of the population turning away from Cricket at a critical age because....'porashuna kor, GPA 5 paabi, chaakri korbi, bhaat khaabi.'

Kids play sport for the love of the sport and that is how it should be, but one can't run away from the financial aspect of it, especially in a society and culture like ours.

Very crucial point. :up:

Speaking of culture like ours, you really got to hope that we do not resort to our age-old practice of pulling someone down with whatever allegations/excuses when they are on the verge of success. We lack unity as a community. I just do not want to keep dreaming of our country being a genuinely progressive one someday - I want to see it materialize.

BD bowlers are getting to bowl though and they are getting thrashed - except for Mohsharraf Hossain Rubel and some of the national team bowlers.

Give it some time, as the tournament progresses, the matches will (hopefully) become closer and the young guys will get more exposure. Till then, they can only learn from sharing a dressing room with international stars.

Give it time, the news that the ticket prices have dropped so dramatically is filtering through, and also lots of ppl weren't sure about what to expect.

Yeah, SBNS is a really big ground, in international matches the boundary range in Mirpur is 78-85 meters, and the whole ground is approximately 85-105 meters long as it was a football stadium before. Hence, from my experience of watching international matches in Mirpur it seems the boundary range for BPL would probably be around 68-75 meters. That's not bad at all, cause in IPL most of the boundary ranges are between 55-65 meters. The smallest boundary I ever saw was at Firoz Shah Kotla in Delhi, where the boundary range was 52-58 meters, now that is small even for school cricket. The thing is that IPL may have much bigger venues in terms of stadium capacity than SBNS but most of their grounds are pretty small as a result it doesn't reflect the smaller boundary lines much, whereas Mirpur is a huge ground and if the boundary ropes are pulled up a bit it looks small to the eyes.

Playing Bollywood music in Dhaka is just a sign of not knowing bangladesh and it's people..... We may have never missed a Bollywood super hit, but when it comes to public show ... We need our own music.... Infact, music is never so important for a movie in BD. ... We look for stories... In a movie ...not music...you can always have gorom masala collection of music later on if u like.... I personally have always used a FF button for music / song while watching a movie... :)

Its a good decision for the time being. we don't have so many top class players to match those internationals at the moment. allowing 7 locals could have worsen the quality of the matches. let few years go by, youngsters will fight hard in the domestics to get a team in BPL. that will only improve their performance to force their way into a team.
Also the higher the number of internationals the better for the promotion of the league. the non-bangalees will only watch BPL for the foreign players. without them its no different than a BCB cup with Bangladesh Red, green & yellow playing each other and who would want to watch that.

That had to be.... After all, who are the spectators?.? It has to be bangladehis.....

Playing Bollywood music in Dhaka is just a sign of not knowing bangladesh and it's people..... We may have never missed a Bollywood super hit, but when it comes to public show ... We need our own music.... Infact, music is never so important for a movie in BD. ... We look for stories... In a movie ...not music...you can always have gorom masala collection of music later on if u like.... I personally have always used a FF button for music / song while watching a movie... :)

True and inadvertently, a lot of our music is also exposed internationally. Off-topic but relatively speaking, I think Bangladesh's rock music scene is much more developed than India's. Despite India being a much bigger country, in my time living there, I noticed far fewer stand-out rock bands than in BD. Even the ones they have are mostly from Kolkata, like Mohiner Ghoraguli and Nachiketa.

They may more money to spend and thus can draw big names like Iron Maiden, Roger Waters, etc. but that's a different issue. I've noticed foreigners are very often impressed when they hear our music :)

This is something I have been blowing my trumpet on since ages. Our rock music is HUGE but alas little they get exposure in the media. It seems like bands are there to perform in occasional universities and that's about it. I had many paki friends who listen to bands like artcell.They brought miles and LRB for the opening concert but I would have liked some of todays band to play alongside them in these big events.

BTW, can anyone clear the rules on foreign players in BPL? Is it mandatory to play 5 of them in every single match or is it just the highest number a team can play in a XI? In IPL, although the quota is of 4 foreign players but when teams had limited foreign players due to international commitments they played less than that and took local players instead.

Their new album is really fascinating..I played their english number ( Hold On) to someone and she couldn't believe that it was a Bangladeshi band playing the song, really well sung.. Yet, that English song wasn't even the best song of the album...

In the sub-continent, its Bangladeshis that rules Rock music, then Pakistan and India. Indians are unfortunate that their movie industry pretty much absorbs all their musicians and there are very few opportunities to perform Rock music in Bollywood movies ( hence comes James, Pakistani Ali Azmat etc.)

Precisely why James is the 'rock star' that Bollywood turns to. Funnily enough, the famous song 'Bheegi Bheegi' sung by James for the movie Gangster was inspired by a West Bengali band, Mohiner Ghoraguli. It seems the Kolkata rock scene has faded slightly in recent years.

Besides Nemesis, Shunno is a great band too. Loved some of their tracks on their latest CD, "Gorbo Bangladesh" including the title track.

I agree, more people need to be exposed to contemporary Bangla rock outside of the metros. We have far more than just LRB and Miles and Souls (though they're great too) I don't think money would be an issue - at least to take a band and their equipment to the heavily NRB populated cities in London, New York, etc. But it is, as you pointed out, an issue of acceptance. Would the NRBs support them and come to their tours, like they do when Runa Laila, Sabina Yasmin and Momtaz tour? Possibly not.

On the flip side, NRB parents may approve of the fact that enthusiasm for Bangla rock bands actually gets their kids to learn some Bangla haha

with only 6 team in the competition was 2 semi finals needed?..i mean because 4 of the 6 team will qualify the chance of qualification is high and may be long before the league stage ends we will find out the names of the 4 teams..and the rest 2/3 games for each side could get meaningless

IMHO they should have let the highest ranked team after the league stage ended to go straight in the final and number 2 and 3 play it out in a semi..it would have brought more competition for that number 1 spot

Yes, I am really glad to see some supporters turning out ( And Neha Dhupia correctly mentioned the state of affairs of the match and Ashraful's name).. I have to say that the BPL is looking exactly like a pre-IPL event... Heck the ads, interviews, missing first bowl due to ad.. all looks like a IPL type tourney. Neverthless, I hope next time ( if there is one) they make it better and more Bangladeshi than Indian..

One interesting thing I noticed today that I didnt see other days was, during the Chittagong vs. Dhaka match,, Murli, Bravo, Cooper or another foreign player discussing strategy in between the overs but Riad was not there.. I was little bit buzzled on who was leading the team. Not that they can't have discussions but I STILL havent seen Riad talking to his foreign recruits when the match was getting tighter with Pollard, Stevens suddenly started blasting.

On the other hand, Bravo, Murli seemed very concerned and discussing things with each other... maybe not a big deal but I think our domestic captains arent really comfortable yet with their foreign recruits..

[বাংলা]এনসিএলও পাচ্ছে বিপিএলের টাকার ভাগ
[/বাংলা]

[বাংলা]ঢাকা: বাংলাদেশ প্রিমিয়ার লিগ (বিপিএল)’র টাকার ভাগ পাচ্ছে এনসিএল টি-টোয়েন্টি’র ক্লাবগুলোও। ঢাকা প্রিমিয়ার লিগের ১২ দলকে যে ভাবে দেওয়া হয়েছে তাদেরকেও আলোচনা সাপেক্ষে টাকা দেবে বিসিবি।

৮ ফেব্রুয়ারি বিসিবি’র জরুরী সভায় নীতিগত সিদ্ধান্ত হয়, এনসিএলকেও টাকা দেবে। তবে কত টাকা করে দেওয়া হবে সে বিষয়ে কোন সিদ্ধান্ত হয়নি। বিসিবি পরিচালক গাজী আশরাফ হোসেন লিপু সোমবার বাংলানিউজকে বলেন,‘সভাপতি দেশে ফিরিলেই এনসিএলের ছয় দলের সঙ্গে আলোচনায় বসবো। সেখানেই সিদ্ধান্ত হবে তাদেরকে কত টাকা করে দেওয়া হবে।’

২০১০ সালে প্রথমবারের মতো জাতীয় ক্রিকেট লিগ টি-টোয়েন্টি প্রতিযোগিতার আয়োজন করে। ঢাকা ডিনামাইটস, সাইক্লোনস অব চিটাগং, রাজশাহী রেঞ্জার্স, কিংস অব খুলনা, বরিশাল ব্লেজার্স এই ছয়টি দলকে বিভিন্ন কর্পোরেট প্রতিষ্ঠানের কাছে বিক্রি করে বিসিবি। আয়োজনটা সফলও হয়। পরের বছর ২০১১ সালে ওই প্রতিযোগিতা আর হয়নি। এনসিএল’র পরিবর্তে বিসিবি এখন আয়োজন করছে বিপিএল।

বিপিএল আত্মপ্রকাশ করায় দুই কোটি টাকা করে ক্ষতিপুরণ দাবি করেছে এনসিএলের ছয় দলের কর্পোরেট মালিকরা। বিসিবিকে আনুষ্ঠানিক চিঠি দিয়ে আইনি লড়াইয়ে যাওয়ার হুমকিও দিয়ে রেখেছে তারা।

যেভাবে বিপিএলের টাকায় ভাগ বসাচ্ছে বিভিন্ন ক্লাব। এভাবে চলতে থাকলে একদিন হয়তো দেশের জেলা এবং বিভাগীয় ক্লাব কর্মকর্তারাও টাকার ভাগ নিতে বিসিবির বারান্দায় হাজির হবে। :lol::floor: [/বাংলা]

Yes that's not the issue. There have been plenty of BD players who have been given the opportunity to bat in the Top 4 but none have made it count other than Mizanur in one innings. In fact only 2 fifties from BD batsmen so far: Mizanur and Alok. Really disappointing.

Well in that respect, BPL is a success... we can see how much we lack in the attacking batting front. I hope that these players will learn few things from being at the pitch with Gayle, Pollard, Steven like players. Even if 5 players learn something new, its good ( rather expensive way to learn but..)

So far the performance of Mashrafi, Mahmudullah, Arafat Sunny and to an extent Kapali was good in my opinion. I am not mentioning Shakib because he is in a league of his own.

I expected Anamul, Mominul, Nasir, Nazimuddin to at least get decent scores in the opportunities that they got. It seems our players are unable to play two good consecutive innings in any format. Hoping for a much better show from the bowlers as well as the batsman in the upcoming matches.

The objective of BPL should not be to create a platform for Foreign players to come here and bash the local bowlers to glory... it must be to showcase the talent we have as well and to prove that we can compete at least at the shortest version of the game. So far the games have been competitive but only due to the contributions of the foreign players. I understand we are not accustomed to T-20... but now that the second leg of the tournament is about to begin I would like to see at least our national stars stepping up a gear and dictating terms in the game rather than hiding behind the shadow of Gayle, Pollard etc.

Just goes to show how our batsmen lack professionalism. You can see how the foreign batsmen have been batting and you can see the difference. Even big hitters like Pollard and Gayle convert their starts in to big scores. That's what defines you as a player. Unfortunately for our players, it's been a consistent struggle to cash in on their starts. So that's still a huge flaw in their games. No surprise that our spinners have done very well.

The performace proves there arent players who are 'Only' good at T20 and not in other formats. In other words, T20 will not destroy our cricket. If you are a crap player, you will remain a crap player even in T20 ( i.e., bangladeshi batsmen) and if you are technically solid player ( Gayle, Nazir, Pollard, Samuels, J. Roy etc.) you will succeed even in T20 and ODIs.

However, I am not too dissapointed yet... Bangladeshi players DONT play T20 cricket and does not know the technique required to pace innings. We will get there just as we got there for ODI matches as we started to play more and more matches..BPL will be a turning point for our cricketers as they will work on their skills more, learn more from quality international players and take their game more seriously due to the 'auction' factor!!

Impressed with Mahmudullah today . Played that near perfect T20 batting role , good strike rate , played great cricketing shots , rotated singles at will and guided his team home like every proper leader does .

Shahriar Nafees on the other hand can stay at home and play PS3 International cricket 2011 or help his wife with the dishes . How can an international Opener who is also an icon player and captain not come to the team's rescue in a winnable chase after the fall of five wickets is beyond any stretch of imagination.

বিপিএল ফ্রেঞ্চাইজিরা খেলোয়াড় বাড়াতে পারবে

ঢাকা: বাংলাদেশ প্রিমিয়ার লিগ (বিপিএল)’র বেশ কয়েকটি দলে খেলোয়াড় সঙ্কট দেখা দিয়েছে। সংখ্যায় ১৮ জন থাকলেও চোট অনেককে খেলার বাইরে পাঠিয়েছে। যারা আছেন মানের দিক থেকে তারাও প্রত্যাশিত নয়।

ফলে আরও কয়েকজন ক্রিকেটার দলে ভেড়াতে মরিয়া হয়ে উঠেছে ফ্রেঞ্চাইজি দলগুলো। কোন কোন দল বিদেশ থেকে খেলোয়াড় উড়িয়েও এনেছে। খেলাতে পারছিলো না বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিলের অনুমোদন না থাকায়। বুধবার সে বাধাও কেটে গেছে। বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল জরুরী রুলিং দিয়ে দলগুলোকে দেশি এবং বিদেশি খেলোয়াড় নেওয়ার অনুমতি দিয়েছে। একটি দল আরও চারজন করে ক্রিকেটার কিনতে পরবেন। তারমধ্যে দেশের দুই জন এবং বিদেশের দুই জন।

বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল জানিয়েছে, দেশের ক্রিকেটার নিতে হবে নিলামে অবিক্রিত খেলোয়াড় তালিকা থেকে। আর বিদেশি আনতে পারবে যে কোন দেশ থেকে। তাদের মান নির্ধারণ করবে বিপিএল গভর্নিং কাউন্সিল।

সিলেট রয়্যালস এরই মধ্যে বিদেশি ক্রিকেটার আনার উদ্যোগ নিয়েছে। অপেক্ষায় আছে বাকিরাও। বরিশাল বার্নার্সও সুযোগটা কাজে লাগাতে চায়। সেক্ষেত্রে প্রতি দলে ২২ জন করে ক্রিকেটার রাখা যাবে।

Tamim, Jones in bust-up?

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal has become the subject of a new speculation after he was not included in the Chittagong Kings line-up for the third consecutive Bangladesh Premier League matches on Wednesday.

Kings said Tamim was left out of the matches for a groin injury he picked up during this tournament, but sources close to the team said it was not everything for him to be overlooked.

The opener had a bust-up with team’s technical director Dean Jones during a pre-match training session on Monday, which left the team management and fellow coaching staff heavily angered.

Head coach Khaled Mahmud had asked Jones if Tamim needed to pad up for a knock and the Australian having been oblivious of his injury initially nodded positively.

When Tamim padded up Jones realised that he has a groin injury and should not risk aggravating it. He rushed to Tamim and asked him not to go to the nets. Tamim reacted sharply at the request and allegedly used a slang which did not go well with the others.

Tamim denied the allegation and said nothing like this happened during the warm-up.

‘I am really surprised to know about this allegation. It’s not true at all,’ Tamim told New Age. ‘I could not play the last three matches for injury. There is no other story in it.

‘I am now feeling a lot better. Hopefully I will play in Chittagong,’ said the left-hander.

Chittagong Kings captain Mahmudullah also supported his claim and said their icon player Tamim was left out of three matches simply because of injury.

Tamim had faced a fitness test today and he looked 70 to 80 per cent okay now. Hopefully he will play very soon if not in the next match.

Chittagong Kings will face Barisal Burners in their next match today.

Why so many empty seats?

“The overall quality of cricket is somehow not all that appealing. It's not like a must-watch,” said Fahmim, a producer at ABC Radio, who is a regular at the Mirpur venue during international matches. “The star value is actually pretty good, given the packed international calendar at the moment. Maybe there aren't too many big names of today but there are some good quality players in the league.”

Fahmim also mentioned the lack of runs and wickets from the local players that could work against drawing a big crowd. “Barring Mahmudullah today [Wednesday], none of the local players have been the standout in any match,” he said.

The window is too little. Traveling would make it a two month event. That would collide with another league. The top attraction, foreign players would leave. That would leave this league in shambles.

You are thinking in terms of North America's major league sports. Rivalries based on geographic locations are not a reality for a country like Bangladesh, where everything is so central to Dhaka. Other cities may have/will have international standard grounds, but will not be able to support the logistics of a big-budget franchise.

Dillu, it is not the distance. It is the roads and traffic. Do you know how long it takes to travel from Radisson to Mirpur? Heck making it back? It would take a whole day just to recover from the intercity travel Dhaka to Bogura, Raj to Khulna, etc. Decreasing the number of game would reduce revenue. TV revenues and others things; not an option.

I agree with you on decentralization and rivalry 110%. That is only how our cricket will improve and remain at that level. Not just a bump and then go back down. But we don't have the infrastructure or the trust (faith on people who would run autonomy shows).

There is at least 3 SLA bowler who deserves to play for the NAts atm ahead of Razzak. It's not just based on BPL, also based on DPL and ncl. They are Elias sunny, MH Rubel, Enamul JR.

Agreed. Razzak even in this tournament has continued to slip his deliveries down leg side. We gotta face it that Razzak isn't the same bowler he used to be. After he changed his action he's not as good anymore. I don't think Shuvo is a bad bowler but he's certainly not anything special. He's more of a darter then a spinner and is also not even accurate. Can't have those type of bowlers in the team.

I actually disagree on Saqlain. He hasn't really impressed me all that much. He doesn't turn the ball all that much and doesn't seem that accurate, he does like to give the ball flight, I'll give him that but don't see him being all that special.

I forgot about MH Rubel. He's been pretty good as well. Along with him, Arafat and Enamul have been impressive. Nazmul Islam also has looked good but seems he needs time before he can be ready for the national team. Shakib and Sunny obviously have proved once again why they are the best SLA's in the country at the moment. I would be happy if the selectors take either Enamul, Arafat, or MH Rubel for the Asia Cup.

After seeing the Rajshahi Vs. Dhaka match, i figured out 3 fun facts :-

1. Mushy >>> Ashraful
2. Samuel > Pollard
and off course
3. Digital Autocare > Europa Grp. :D

First round completed.Most of the team has compleated 5 matches.Some analysis can be done regarding performance.
Our local bowlers are not doing bad.Sunny is the heighest wicket taker followed by Enan jn.Total 3 bowlers at top ten,Shakib at no 7.But no local pacer.Only mash at 11.
Batting was a total failure.None at top 10.Kapali,Riyad,Mushy and Junayed at 13-16.It is a complete failure of our local heros.Unknown paki batsman are doing better than our local heroes.How come all WI batsman doing better than local heroes?
To me this tourney is an eye opener of our quality in comparison to international standard.

I find referring our beloved country as 'Bangerland' insulting, disrespectful and offensive. If he doesn't like our country then don't come here. He is getting paid a lot of money for 3 weeks' work and has been offered accomodation at a nice hotel. The least he can do is refer to our country as Bangladesh. In fact I would say it sounds borderline racist. This comment is unacceptable and Ian Pont should ask him to remove it from his account.

Can't believe why they had to make Friday the day off. Seriously, this is the best day to bring in crowds. I understand the Jumah part. So why not make a late start around 3. Or just play one game.

Travel and rest. Very much needed. They are not robots. Rest gives them to sort out things internally (and heal the nicks and bruises) and perform better in the coming days. Preparation is at least half as important as the game itself.

Rest is obviously important. My question is then, why not rest them on Wed or Thurs. Crowd attendance has been poor so far and the only day we can get them in big numbers, we don't have any matches.

Fair point. And they could start the match at 3pm instead of 2pm. MGMT marketing may have issues that we may not think of - just saying.

I never said it was gonna be easy. I know it's not an option atm, but they will have to make it happen within few years. Or else BPL will stay as an exhibition
league. People won't come to watch exhibition matches in couple of years.
Dillu, it is not the distance. It is the roads and traffic. Do you know how long it takes to travel from Radisson to Mirpur? Heck making it back? It would take a whole day just to recover from the intercity travel Dhaka to Bogura, Raj to Khulna, etc. Decreasing the number of game would reduce revenue. TV revenues and others things; not an option.

I agree with you on decentralization and rivalry 110%. That is only how our cricket will improve and remain at that level. Not just a bump and then go back down. But we don't have the infrastructure or the trust (faith on people who would run autonomy shows).

Who is Darren Steven and which team does he play for?

Just checked his twitter, I'm sure they aren't feeding curry to all these foreigners?

February 17, 2012, 01:43 PM
Along with the foreign players, one thing this BPL is also providing is a good understanding of the fcapabilities of the foreign coaches as well. We clearly can see the team combination of Pont/Fountain/Rafique, Jones/Bevan, Khaled Mashud are doing much better than Sarwar Imran, Law/Swift.. Robin Singh is queitly doing his things but nothing extra-ordinary.

Chittagong ZAC will be the place where we will see how these coaches can strategize against a very different wicket condition. Nevertheless, the fact that Law's team has suffered pretty badly, will prompt some questions on his ability to impact a national team. BCB management certainly are noticing how Bevan, Pont, Mashud like coaches are bringing results from their respective team.

However, I think Mashud has been an outstandinglocal coach/organizer for the last few years making Rajshahi the best NCL team in recent years. His team has produced many national team players yet whenever the team plays, it plays like a strong South African unit!!

@ oronnya

Thank you , All the best for Shakib's team but I have a habit of choosing one team and sticking throughout. I think Rajshahi will win the tournament :)

Let's make our xi's?

Alright, so assuming that each team must have atleast one rep, here are the two XIs (North vs South, although Locals vs Foreigners would be an intriguing option, but the selection becomes heavily unbalanced - locals not performing/getting a chance to perform enough):

Team North :

Imran Nazir (Dhaka)
Junaid Siddique (Rajshahi)
Peter Trego (Sylhet)
Marlon Samuels (Rajshahi)
Mushfiqur Rahim (Rajshahi) - captain, wk
Alok Kapali (Sylhet)
Kieron Pollard (Dhaka)
Azhar Mahmood (Dhaka)
Adbur Razzaq (Rajshahi)
Mashrafee Mortuza (Dhaka)
Elias Sunny (Dhaka)
12th - Imrul Kayes (Sylhet)

Team South :

Nasir Jamshed (Chittagong)
Ahmed Shehzad (Barisal)
Jason Roy (Chittagong)
Shakib al Hasan (Khulna) - captain
Mahmudullah Riyad (Chittagong)
Andre Russell (Khulna)
Dwayne Smith (Khulna)
Dwanye Bravo (Chittagong)
Saghir Hossain (Khulna) - wk
Yasir Arafat (Barisal)
Enamul Haq jnr (Chittagong)
12th man - Mominul Haque (Barisal)

Saqlain really did prove me wrong. He had a rough start in the beginning being wicketless but he was a big reason why Rajshahi won. He was turning the ball really well today. Hopefully he can continue the good work.

not only danny, all other commi said Rajsthan at the begining too:sick:. still most of them struggle to pronounce Rajshahi properly.

Funny thing is that, Symcox was Pronouncing Mahmudullah as Mohammad Abdul today :floor:
