Ya right, I don't believe anything this guy says. Its just something to forget about the the whole touring Pakistan episode he created, that's all.

Thanks Zunaid bhai for the news. The tour to India is a very good news. Our schedule was really thin and we needed another tour badly. Hopefully we get to play Test matches as well. No doubt it'll be a very tough tour but it should be a very good learning experience for our players.

Also I was thinking today about when we're going to hire an Academy coach. It's good they're hiring a full coaching staff. The current youngster seemed to have benefited a lot from Ross Turner. It's really important to have a full structure in place.

২০১২ সালের ডিসেম্বরেরর মধ্যে সিরিজ হবে বলে মোস্তফা কামাল বাংলানিউজকে জানান। তিনি বলেন,`বিসিসিআই সভাপতির সাথে আমার কথা হয়েছে। তিনি আমাকে নিশ্চিত করেছেন ডিসেম্বরের ভেতরে তারা বাংলাদেশকে আমন্ত্রণ জানাবে পুর্ন সিরিজের জন্য।`

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Mustafa Kamal has said he has received an assurance from the BCCI president N Srinivasan that India will host Bangladesh for a full tour later in the year, according to a BCB release sent out after an adjourned board meeting. Bangladesh haven't played a Test series in India since gaining Test status in 2000. They have, however, hosted India for a Test series on four occasions.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/current/story/560548.html

Edit: Oh okay, according to BCB release lol!...But still it's unlikely to be completely bogus. Sooner or later we're going to tour India and hand them their behind at their own home. ;)

Bangladesh's loss for not playing against the mighty Pakistanis.

The worst he can do is pull out Pak guys from the BPL, which wouldn't be so bad considering the math fixing risks.

Mr Kamal seems to be more of a politician than an organizer - PCB k bhaloi ghol khawalao - ICC vote already ensured, BPL went live with Pak players dominating the foreign recruits etc. Now a stunt was needed while the Premier League is under some obvious threat. Diverting attention has been seen as his favourite ploy while getting busy in doing things that is right politically only in Bangladesh.

I'd, however, like if India tour really takes place this year.

Point to note: There was a comment published recently - BCB would look to organize other nations (even if they are assocciates) to play Bangladesh and keep our players in the playing conditions as our next FTP tour is not due before August. I'd humbly suggest this could be followed up in this thread as well.

i read a comment in the article which was quite interesting and could be correct.

The reason India didnt allow Bangladesh to tour India for the last 9 years is because they knew they wont make much money out off that tour. Not many people would show up and there wouldnt be that many sponsors for this series. BCCI is money hungry.

But the reason why India are letting Bangladesh tour now is because Indians want revenge from the loss they encountered in the Asia Cup. BCCI know people would come out to see Bangladesh getting thrashed after they were humiliated.

BCCI needed 5 years to figure that out? Its amazing! These kind of comments either be brilliant or the rest are just dumb as stone.

.

This excuse doesn't make any sense to me either. India are hosting NZ for a full series later this year. NZ don't have any iconic players to make this tour memorable or crowd pulling. Out of 4.4 million population, and cricket being the distant second or third party after Rugby, Footy, and others, at best few hundred thousand will watch the game on TV. We can get that much TV following from one neighborhood in Dhaka. Plus, Ind-Ban series can take multiple social, cultural rivalry while there is no such Ind-NZ bonds.

Its just BD tag. That's why BCCI is ignoring us.

al Furqaan
April 10, 2012, 02:47 PM
I've heard BCCI only has 16 days free next season...not enough time for a full series which requires at last 25 days.

This series is not happening, BCCI won't postpone a series with NZ even though we'd prolly be more competitive in Indian conditions.

Everyone related to cricket in BD are literally begging for a tour to India ... Yes, we should be looking for more matches, but crying so much for a tour to India isn't worth it. Fans are no exception. We should keep playing good cricket and keep quiet about touring India. If India wants, they will invite. What's so special touring India??

And how do you expect us to play good cricket when we have 1 series a year?

No one is begging for a tour. We need to play as much as we can.

Having egos in this matter doesn't benefit us.

:)

Playing India or Pakistan or any team ... Increases number of matches.... Here the point is touring India because they have never invited us... Not increasing number of matches... Where from you see ego here?? Yes, if they invite you should go and play...but why cry and beg for invitation ?? Invite them to BD if you want to have more matches...

If you want more matches, approach all board and there is no shame in saying that we want /more matches... ...no need to raise the issue that ohh India has never invited us... Please invite us in India...etc etc that's matter of self respect not ego..you can't grumble about someone not inviting you........

The opposite, a tour of India to your country is big money, you will make a fortune just on the TV deal, let alone the sponsors to display adds and sold out tickets.

If you are visiting India, the money is their's to make. But India only wants to invite countries it can make huge money on, sadly Bangladesh is not one of them.

I Agree.... Let the team improve so much that, India begs for a tour in India...till then we shouldn't talk about it.

What's the point forcing them to invite us and be thrashed right and left... Then they will make a joke of the demand... It's always better to keep quiet on certain issues...until you are sure that you won't look like a joker at the end.

We need more matches, we can try with all boards and invite them to our place.... To be honest we aren't yet that consistent even at home....NZ and Asiq cup...that's it. Let's keep doing it, until...the touring teams feel that their ijjat is at stake and feel the necessity to invite us to beat us and recover their ijjat. ...we have to create that demand by our performance at home...

And as Mahmood said, we can earn more money also by playing bigger teams at home, specially India. So it's just our ego..that's why we want to force people to invite us. or may be Kormokortader bidesh sofor er/bouder shopping er shubidha hoy.

This is the problem. Next season there is a much awaited bilateral series against Sri Lanka, followed by visits by New Zealand, England, Australia (the last two are four test series) plus Champions League and the T20 World Cup. Unless there is a strong enough political reason (probably involving Pakistan and ICC), this series won't happen. There is not enough space even for a diluted series with young players like the WI tour last year.

I don't understand why we need to go through so much panpanani to go to India and play...It is not as if India has the best grounds in the world, neither does a tour to India assure us free wins over them...Rather we should try and tour Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and England more often if possible. That would do greater good to our cricket.

Bangladesh hasn't toured India EVER, have they? So yes, I do think it's relevant. And I don't think any of the above countries would be willing to host now, I would rather make sure that BD gets as many home games as possible and draw games there first.

I'm not sure how the BCCI would allocate a series for us, considering India are playing a lot of cricket towards the end of the year. Expect them to field a weaker squad. Good chance to get some wins under the belt in India!

Bangladesh has toured India. It's just that they haven't toured India for any 'bilateral' series. I think it is very much within possibilities for us to visit New Zealand and West Indies for playing bilateral series. But there needs to be initiative from BCB for that to happen.
...
And even India aren't going to host us NOW. I echo your last words as well but at the same time I would love to see our team go to NZ or WI or even both countries instead of India in the near future.
...
The more we play abroad (outside the sub-continent), the faster we will toughen up as a team. Besides, it has been so long we haven't toured any of the countries outside the Indian sub-continent (Letting Zimbabwe aside).

April 12, 2012, 09:45 AM
LOL @ the thought of an india tour. That's probably less likely than the Pakistan tour.

Anyway, like Isnaad has mentioned above, playing against non-Asian teams away from home is much faster way to improve. Screw the india tour, bring on a South Africa/New Zealand tour.

I'm sure NZ is dying for chance at revenge. ;)
