Zim tour delayed
(http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=230539)Sports Reporter

The Bangladesh cricket team will have to be content with playing minnows in the next few months after their August tour to Zimbabwe has been delayed to next year.

This was informed by Bangladesh Cricket Board director Enayet Hossain Siraj, the chairman of the cricket operations committee, after a meeting held at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur yesterday.

Bangladesh were supposed to play two Tests, three ODIs and a Twenty20 during the tour but it will now be pushed back by eight months into a late southern African summer.

"They have informed us that both their grounds are not prepared so it won't be possible in August," said Siraj, "They proposed for the tour in October but it won't be possible in because we will have domestic season at the time. So we agree to hold it in April 2013."


As was planned, the Tigers will tour Europe to play Ireland in a four-day game, three one-dayers and two Twenty20 games. There is also consideration for matches against the Netherlands and Scotland during the tour.

The more pressing matter in hand however is the Pakistan tour, whether the Tigers will be given a schedule to train ahead of the two matches. Siraj said that they are playing in cool so far. "We have discussed the issue but we will wait for the ICC to let the board know about the progress," he said.

With less than two weeks left for the scheduled first game to be held on April 29, it is interesting to see the Tigers not training yet as its increasingly becoming a hurriedly prepared tour.

Meanwhile, the BCB have been invited to send a team to Trinidad & Tobago for a tournament commemorating the island's Independence Day in August. The winners will get $20,000 and the organisers will bear all expenses. A BCB Eleven could be sent, it was learned.

To be honest I am happy for tigers to tour next April. If they plan our domestic cleverly our players will be match fit as they will be coming to the end of Bangladesh Domestic Season.

"We have requested (the BCB) that the series be moved to October from August," Ozias Bvute, ZC's managing director, told ESPNcricinfo. "This is because we want to work on our wickets and squares in Harare and Bulawayo; they have been very flat over the last few years so we want to make them livelier. We were supposed to do this work earlier but because South Africa are visiting for five T20s in June, we can only do it later."

Shouldn't they be touring us this year since we toured them the last year? No offence but watching cricket in Zimbabwe is really dull. The pitches are dead and hardly a hundred people turn up to watch the games.

^^i know bro. sorry, I wasn't clear about it. August 2012 should be August 2012, not october or otherwise...cause last time when I checked (August 2011) they were not helpful to us. So why should we? (Don't get me wrong...I love zimslog;)) We have favored them countless times in the past and they couln't give us practice matches when they knew clearly we had monsoon problem in BD(last year). I call that a selfish action by zim board. era je kemon bondhu tokoni bujchi.

dammit. Bad news after bad news.

Why do they (zim) need to make livelier pitch ? We don't need livelier pitch, we are happy to play in flat track (its their disadvantage that they could not prepare the pitch as they wanted). Why did even BCB agree to postpone the series !?

I think BCB don't want to repeat the same mistake they did last year. Last year BD went to Zimbabwe without playing any FC cricket for long time and players performed very poorly and lost the game.

And this time before the tour only 1 FC game is scheduled which is not enough. So they want to go there well prepared this time.

They are trying to make the pitches "livelier" so they can bounce us out? Really? Who in their team bowls over 120ks? Mr Ordinary? And lol, I just love how they "couldn't do it during SA tour." Chickensht. Those Saffer guys would have ripped them apart.

Good reply by BCB. "We'd rather play our domestic league than tour you."

Bottom line: Our batsmen need to man the heck up and make sure we win.

Just remembered. We have Rubel injured needs an operation. Shafiul also has injury but not as bad as Rubel. Mash has recovered but need to gain more fitness to play test match. I think Zimbabwe has made a big mistake there.

You no what I am happy.

End of discussion from my part. (Time for emoticon)

Zimbabwe tour is postpond, that means we are long time aloof from Test cricket which isn't good for us. Normally we can't play enough Test match now we cann't play almost one year a Test match. It will degrade the gragh of our Test performance. BCB shouldn't change the tour schedule. Zimbabwe always try to do in favour of themselves but BCB should also think our own interest. Otherwise we never come out as a good Test.

Exactly, we are free and they had a schedule with us. If they cann't host us we can invite them the same time. But it has a problem with weather in Bangladesh. If they have time we can take it one month later in September. In September the weather in Bangladesh is suitable for cricket.

Rubel Hossain, Nazmul Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza, Shafiul Islam, Abul Hasan.
...
Any 3 among those 5 would be okay against Zimbabwe. Although we should not be underestimating Zim, they are still a weak team and at the end of the day, no matter how bad or how good the pitches are, our spinners WILL make the difference. That applies for whenever the tour takes place, 2012, 2013 or 2014.

By things just could not get worse I tried to point at the FACT that we are going to have to contend with non-Test playing nations till September! Sad.

Rubel Hossain: Injured and need complicated shoulder operation and after that would need at least 2-3 months to recover. Count him out

Mashrafee Mortaza: Mash himself withdrew him from NCL last round stating he needs more fitness to play 4 day match.


So your pace attack for Zim will look like 3 injury prawns bowler Shafiul, Nazmul and Abuuuul.
