After a 4 year hiatus, we are pleased to announce the relaunching of the BanglaCricket Awards.

We had intended this to be an annual affair but, unfortunately, were unable to do so. We are nevertheless pleased to make it happen again, albeit 4 years later.

Our special thanks to night_wolf who took the initiative to restart the awards again. He solicited member input for both categories and nominees and came up with the award categories you see. You should also pat him on the back for the award graphics.

Once again, we have create a special sub-forum - "BanglaCricket Awards 2011" for this year's awards. We have three additional categories this year making it 18. There will be one poll thread per award and the voting will be open soon after the end of Asia Cup 12 and will close April 7.

I hear ya!

2012 will not bring the end of the world. We are getting our act together so that we can have a real award ceremony. A precondition is to increase our BD base and have BC less expat heavy. That too is something we are working on. Riht now we are predominantly expat based.

Shakib a clear fan favourite

Sports Reporter
Shakib Al Hasan's ever-growing popularity among fans found another medium when he was voted as the Cricketer of the Year for 2011 by members of BanglaCricket.com, a fan-driven cricket website.
This is the second time the forum have organised fan voted awards to recognise top performers of the country. The award considered performances in the 2011 calendar year with eleven categories; voting ran for a period of one month in March this year.
Predictably, Shakib was the chosen one after becoming the highest run-scorer and wicket-taker for the country in Tests and ODIs. Apart from the top award, he was also chosen as the top Test and ODI Cricketer, best Test and ODI batsman and best ODI and Test bowler.
Nasir Hossain was elected the emerging player of the year while Khadiza Tul Kubra was named the Women's Cricketer of the Year. Some of the more interesting categories included the most under-rated player of the year (won by Nazmul Hossain) and best domestic cricketer (Asif Ahmed).
BanglaCricket has over 13,000 registered members but its viewership is even larger. On average, 80,000-plus unique visitors go to the site. The sources of visits for BanglaCricket.com are from the US, Bangladesh and the UK.

That isn't true. Now those could be the major sources, which was what was communicated to DS. But those aren't the only sources as the article suggests.

US, BD and UK are the top 3 countries BC site visit. Do you want the report to mention all the countries, that would be a long list :)

BC has visits from pretty much all over the world (even Mongolia).

Not all, but top 5 countries would have been better. I am sure both Canada and Australia would have made it to that list. Beside including Australia would strengthen the weight of the list :-p

Anyway, nice read :)

For future reference, just use "Report" button http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/images/BanglaCricket/buttons/report.gif. It is easier if you use report button.

Isam - I said the top three sources of traffic. :)

There are of course others.

Here's the top 6 for march via unique visits (numbers rounded)

US - 24K
Bangladesh - 20K
UK - 18 K
Not set - 14+K
India - 14-K
Australia = 10K
Canada - I don't have the numbers (Nasif will have it)
Pakistan - I don't have the numbers (Nasif will have it)

The Pakistan traffic is unusual. The Asia Cup caused increased traffic from there.

The top 3 accounted for 52K of the 80K traffic for March.

I know what was written. He mentioned those were the top/major sources, but you left that bit out, making it sound like those were the only sources. Maybe you're the one who should go back and check your email.Dude this was written on the documents sent to me by Zunaid bhai. You better check with him.

Just one word "mostly" would have solved everything. In any case, Isam gets a standing ovation.

People in the US miss cricket more because they have fewer opportunities. That's why they frequent online forums (as their third place) more so than UK deshis. And that's why you have so few from BD. Why spend so much time online talking about it when they can go out and do it, and talk about it over chotopoti and cha?

so true..When I was in BD back in Feb, I didnt even feel like coming to BC. I was like why go for virtual when you can have the real thing..Thats why I give lot of credits to those members from Bangladesh.

Really? USA's population is 5 times that of UK, so I would think there would be more Bangladeshis in the former. I mean thing about it, New York and probably LA alone have huge communities and make up large numbers.

No I still think UK has bigger Bdeshi population. They have been living there since the 1970s. Bengalis started to come in droves in USA during the 90s and early 2000s, thanks to to DV.

According to Wiki

Estimate 72,237 - 143,619 Bdeshi in USA (2007) (I assume its more, 100k Bdeshi easily live in NY alone)
Estimated 500,000 in UK (2009)

AsifTheManRahman
April 11, 2012, 11:38 AM
That's very interesting indeed. Yeah, even with discrepancies and the two-year lag, I don't think the numbers for the US will be large enough to match UK's 500,000.

Middle East has 2,820,000 Bangladeshis..We dont have many members from there either..

We do have members from the middle east, including the UAE, Saudi Arabia and possibly other countries.

Keep up the hope brother. After all, cricket is not a pot full, milked unattended rather a tree full of few bad apples. (Trying to assume the glass half-filled unless there is a Sir the obvious opportunist.)
