They say, succeed or fail, but never stop trying! Now we have a lot of cricket for the time being.

Would also like that sakib plays for essex in FLT20 giving chance for youngster like mominul or ziaur in the side

The team i would want to go on the tour (for the T20 matches)
1. Mohammad Ashraful
2. Junaed Siddique
3. Anamul Haque
4. Mahmudullah
5. Mushfiqur Rahim (c)
6. Nasir Hossain
7. Ziaur Rahman
8. Mashrafe Mortaza
9. Elias Sunny/Arafat Sunny
10. Shafiul Islam
11. Nazmul Hossain

Benched - Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Abdur Razzak, Jahurul Islam

I dropped Kayes because i want the team to be similar to the T20 team that will play in the T20 World Cup. Kayes is not a T20 player so i would give Siddique a chance. I also would give Ashraful a chance to stake his claim for the T20 World Cup.

Ill give Shafiul a chance as well. And we will also see how the youngster Anamul perform. I would also rest up Tamim and Shakib to give Mahmudullah more of responsibility. From this we will be able to see how he performs.

Overall i want this tour to be used as preperation for the T20 World Cup. I also want this tour to be used to give youngsters such as Anamul a go.

Shafiul in T20s? Replace him with Arafat Sunny IMO, two pacers are enough. Bowls too many length balls too, Shafi.

True.. Tamim shouldn't be rested..

If Shakib is playing for Essex for T20 then he should go there as that will give him more experience and he will learn more..

টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপ নিয়ে জাতীয় দলের পরিকল্পনা
বাংলানিউজ২৪: বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট দলের সমস্ত কার্যক্রম এখন থেকে আবর্তিত হবে সেপ্টেম্বরের টি-টোয়েন্টিবিশ্বকাপ ঘিরে। অন্তত আগামী তিন মাস জাতীয় দলের কোনো বড় দৈর্ঘ্যরে ম্যাচ থাকবে না। জুনে জিম্বাবুয়ে সফরে টি-টোয়েন্টি, ইউরোপে ওয়ানডে এবং ত্রিনিদাদ অ্যান্ড টোবাগোতে টি-টোয়েন্টি ক্রিকেটে সীমিত থাকছে জাতীয় দলের কার্যক্রম।
২৭ জন ক্রিকেটার নিয়ে ২০ মে থেকে মিরপুর শেরেবাংলা জাতীয় স্টেডিয়ামে কন্ডিশনিং ক্যাম্পের আয়োজন করছে বিসিবি। পর্যায়ক্রমে তালিকা ছোট করে আনবেন নির্বাচকরা। জুনের দ্বিতীয় সপ্তাহে জিম্বাবুয়েতে ত্রিদেশীয় টি-টোয়েন্টি সিরিজের জন্যস্কোয়াড ঘোষণা করা হতে পারে। ১২ অথবা ১৩ জুন হারারের উদ্দেশে দেশ ছাড়বেন ক্রিকেটাররা। সেখানে কন্ডিশনের সঙ্গে মানিয়ে নিতে একটি ৫০ ওভারের প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচ খেলার সুযোগ পাবে।
টি-টোয়েন্টি সিরিজ হবে ১৮ থেকে ২৪ জুন। জিম্বাবুয়ের বিপক্ষে উদ্বোধনী ম্যাচ খেলবে বাংলাদশ। পরের দিন ১৯ জুন দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকার বিপক্ষে সিরিজের দ্বিতীয় ম্যাচটিও বাংলাদেশের। দ্বিতীয় লেগে বাংলাদেশের ম্যাচ দুটি হবে ২১ ও ২২ জুন। দুই লেগের খেলায় পয়েন্টে এগিয়ে থাকা দুই দলের মধ্যে ফাইনাল হবে ২৪ জুন। লিগে জিম্বাবুয়ে এবং দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকার কাছ থেকে পয়েন্ট বাগাতে পারলে বাংলাদেশের ফাইনালে খেলাওঅসম্ভব হবে না। ফাইনালে উঠতে পারলে সফরে পাঁচটি টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলা হবে বাংলাদেশের।
পরের মাসে আয়ারল্যান্ড সফরে যাবে ওয়ানডে সিরিজ খেলার জন্য। বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি) চেষ্টা করছে ১০ থেকে ১২ জুলাই এর মধ্যে আয়ারল্যান্ডে পৌঁছাতে। একটু আগে যেতে পারলে কন্ডিশনের সঙ্গে মানিয়ে নেওয়া ক্রিকেটারদের জন্য কিছুটা সহজ হবে। আপাতত ২০,২২ ও ২৪ জুলাই আয়ারল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে তিন ম্যাচের সিরিজ ঠিক হয়ে আছে। শেষপর্যন্ত ম্যাচগুলো এগিয়েও আসতে পারে। বর্তমান সূচি ঠিক থাকলে ২৬ ও ২৭ জুলাই স্কটল্যান্ড ও নেদারল্যান্ডসের বিপক্ষে দুটি ওয়ানডে খেলে দেশে ফিরবে জাতীয় দল।
২৫ আগস্টে বিসিবি একাদশ যাবে ত্রিনিদাদ অ্যান্ড টোবাগোতে। ক্যারিবিয়ান দ্বীপ দেশের সুবর্ণ জয়ন্তী উপলক্ষ্যে তিনটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ খেলবে তাদের দলের সঙ্গে। প্রথম ম্যাচ হবে ৩০ আগস্ট। ১ ও ২ সেপ্টেম্বর হবে বাকি ম্যাচ দুটি।
সেখান থেকে ফিরে জাতীয় দল চলে যাবে শ্রীলঙ্কায়। সম্ভব হলে একটু আগেই বিশ্বকাপ ভেন্যুতে দল পাঠাবে বিসিবি। বিশ্বকাপের আগে জিম্বাবুয়ে এবং আয়ারল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে দুটিপ্রস্তুতি ম্যাচের সুযোগ রেখেছে আইসিসি। তারও আগে আফগানিস্তান ও আইরিশদের সঙ্গে দুটি ২০ ওভারের ম্যাচের ব্যবস্থা হলে মন্দ হয় না।

why on earth is there a 50 over practice match before a T20 series, unofficial or not?

also, should have tried to squeeze in a 4-dayer vs either of SA or ZIM in there. I don't believe the "no longer version before world cup" theory since it worked oh-so-well for the 2011 WC.

we should have covered Ireland's costs for a 4-dayer against them. overall good initiative from the BCB, but they left several gaps that should have been filled.

Four T20s and 5 ODIs against Associates is good? I agree that it's better than nothing at all, but it's still pretty darn shabby no matter how you slice it.

What would you have prefered? Go to SA/Aus/England and travel to the stadium everyday in the hope that they give us a few matches out of pity? Pretty much all the international teams have their schedules filled in this period and the ones that don't, don't want to play us. Credit where it's due. The BCB made something out of nothing and it's not as bad as you're making it out to be.

আয়ারল্যান্ড সফরে বিসিবি সভাপতির না!

ঢাকা: জাতীয় দলের আন্তর্জাতিক ফাঁকা সূচিতে খেলার জন্য আয়ারল্যান্ডের দারস্থ হয়েছিলো বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)। তাদের আহ্বানে সাড়া দিয়ে আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডও বাংলাদেশের সঙ্গে খেলতে রাজি হয়। খেলার সূচিও চূড়ান্ত হয়ে গেছে। সব কিছু হয়ে যাওয়ার পর আয়ারল্যান্ড সফর নিয়ে আপত্তি তুলেছেন বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল। পরিচালকরা এই সফরে রাজি থাকলেও সভাপতি টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপের আগে আয়ারল্যান্ডে গিয়ে খেলার ঝুঁকি নিতে রাজি নন।

বিসিবি সভাপতির ভয়, আয়ারল্যান্ডের কন্ডিশনে খেলতে গিয়ে হেরে গেলে ক্রিকেটাররা মানসিক ভাবে ভেঙ্গে পড়বেন। যার নেতিবাচক প্রভাব পড়তে পারে সেপ্টেম্বরে অনুষ্ঠেয় টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপে। যদিও সভাপতির এমন হালকা যুক্তি মেনে নিতে পারছেন না পরিচালকরা।

নির্ভরযোগ্য সূত্র জানায়, ১৪ মে রাতে হোটেল সোনারগাঁও’য়ের এক বৈঠকে বিসিবি সভাপতির সঙ্গে এনিয়ে পরিচালকরা উত্তপ্ত বাক্য বিনিময়ও করেন। এরপরেও মোস্তফা কামাল নিজের সিদ্ধান্তে অনড় থেকে মঙ্গলবার জিম্বাবুয়ে এবং ত্রিনিদাদ অ্যান্ড টোবাগোতে টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলার অনুমোদন দিয়েছেন।

অথচ বাংলাদেশকে আতিথেয়তা দেওয়ার জন্য আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড আইসিসি থেকে অনুদান পর্যন্ত নিয়েছে। অর্থ পাওয়ার পর ২০ থেকে ২৪ জুলাই তিন ম্যাচ ওয়ানডে সিরিজ পাকাপাকি করে আয়ারল্যান্ড। বাংলাদেশ দলের জন্য একটি প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচেরও ব্যবস্থা রেখেছে তারা। ওই সফরে স্কটল্যান্ড এবং নেদারল্যান্ডসের বিপক্ষেও একটি করে ওয়ানডেও খেলার পরিকল্পনা রয়েছে। পরিচালকদের অনেকে মনে করছেন, সব ঠিক হয়ে যাওয়ার পর সফর বাতিল হলে বিসিবি’র ওপর বিরূপ ধারণা জন্মাবে আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট কর্মকর্তাদের। ভবিষ্যতে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড থেকে অনুরোধ করা হলে তারা ভালো ভাবে নাও নিতে পারে। এবিষয়ে প্রতিক্রিয়ার জন্য মোস্তফা কামালের মোবাইলফোনে যোগাযোগ করে তাকে পাওয়া যায়নি।

অবশ্য বিসিবি থেকে আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডকে বিকল্প প্রস্তাব দেওয়া হতে পারে। আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট দলকে বাংলাদেশে এসে খেলার জন্য অনুরোধ করতে পারে। আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড এতে রাজি হলে ল্যাটা চুকে যায়। তা না হলে আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট বোর্ডকে না করে দিতে পারে বিসিবি।

We could very well lose a game or two to Ireland, especially in their conditions. I don't think we're associate-proof yet. But that just gives us another reason to play them there, not the other way around. Anyone who has a mental breakdown because of losing to Ireland shouldn't play international cricket.

Not surprised to see any of these names although I'm disappointed to see the selectors not have the balls to drop Shahadat. I think most of these guys are just there to fill up the numbers. The 15 that should be selected as I said in another thread are,

1. Tamim
2. Junaid
3. Anamul
4. Mahmudullah
5. Shakib
6. Mushy
7. Nasir
8. Mash
9. Razzak

This sounds like a KK report. Not that its your fault Roman bhai. This Loitta is on a mission to destroy our cricket in every way possible. First he gave his words to Pakistan without knowing his power. This time he asked Ireland for a tour, gave them hope, made them ask ICC for money and now saying we don't want to go there because of whatever reason. A true ambassador of Bangladesh Cricket.

Why are the BCB so delusional? What makes them believe teams like England, South Africa and Australia will be interested to play us in a month or two's notice? All of them have very busy schedules and some extremely important tours coming up.

All this will do is create further embarrassment for Bangladesh cricket. If BCB had any sense, they would be trying to include an extra 4-day game in the Irish tour.

আয়ারল্যান্ড সফরে বিসিবি সভাপতির না!

ঢাকা: জাতীয় দলের আন্তর্জাতিক ফাঁকা সূচিতে খেলার জন্য আয়ারল্যান্ডের দারস্থ হয়েছিলো বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)। তাদের আহ্বানে সাড়া দিয়ে আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডও বাংলাদেশের সঙ্গে খেলতে রাজি হয়। খেলার সূচিও চূড়ান্ত হয়ে গেছে। সব কিছু হয়ে যাওয়ার পর আয়ারল্যান্ড সফর নিয়ে আপত্তি তুলেছেন বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল। পরিচালকরা এই সফরে রাজি থাকলেও সভাপতি টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপের আগে আয়ারল্যান্ডে গিয়ে খেলার ঝুঁকি নিতে রাজি নন।

বিসিবি সভাপতির ভয়, আয়ারল্যান্ডের কন্ডিশনে খেলতে গিয়ে হেরে গেলে ক্রিকেটাররা মানসিক ভাবে ভেঙ্গে পড়বেন। যার নেতিবাচক প্রভাব পড়তে পারে সেপ্টেম্বরে অনুষ্ঠেয় টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপে। যদিও সভাপতির এমন হালকা যুক্তি মেনে নিতে পারছেন না পরিচালকরা।

নির্ভরযোগ্য সূত্র জানায়, ১৪ মে রাতে হোটেল সোনারগাঁও’য়ের এক বৈঠকে বিসিবি সভাপতির সঙ্গে এনিয়ে পরিচালকরা উত্তপ্ত বাক্য বিনিময়ও করেন। এরপরেও মোস্তফা কামাল নিজের সিদ্ধান্তে অনড় থেকে মঙ্গলবার জিম্বাবুয়ে এবং ত্রিনিদাদ অ্যান্ড টোবাগোতে টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলার অনুমোদন দিয়েছেন।

অথচ বাংলাদেশকে আতিথেয়তা দেওয়ার জন্য আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড আইসিসি থেকে অনুদান পর্যন্ত নিয়েছে। অর্থ পাওয়ার পর ২০ থেকে ২৪ জুলাই তিন ম্যাচ ওয়ানডে সিরিজ পাকাপাকি করে আয়ারল্যান্ড। বাংলাদেশ দলের জন্য একটি প্রস্তুতি ম্যাচেরও ব্যবস্থা রেখেছে তারা। ওই সফরে স্কটল্যান্ড এবং নেদারল্যান্ডসের বিপক্ষেও একটি করে ওয়ানডেও খেলার পরিকল্পনা রয়েছে। পরিচালকদের অনেকে মনে করছেন, সব ঠিক হয়ে যাওয়ার পর সফর বাতিল হলে বিসিবি’র ওপর বিরূপ ধারণা জন্মাবে আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট কর্মকর্তাদের। ভবিষ্যতে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড থেকে অনুরোধ করা হলে তারা ভালো ভাবে নাও নিতে পারে। এবিষয়ে প্রতিক্রিয়ার জন্য মোস্তফা কামালের মোবাইলফোনে যোগাযোগ করে তাকে পাওয়া যায়নি।

অবশ্য বিসিবি থেকে আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডকে বিকল্প প্রস্তাব দেওয়া হতে পারে। আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট দলকে বাংলাদেশে এসে খেলার জন্য অনুরোধ করতে পারে। আইরিশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড এতে রাজি হলে ল্যাটা চুকে যায়। তা না হলে আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট বোর্ডকে না করে দিতে পারে বিসিবি।

Why did BCB refuse the offer to play Zim in October after the WC?
Why expect Aus to play when the BCB refuses tests, citing a "clash with first class domestic season". All countries play tests when their domestic season is being played !!!

The priority for BCB must be to play as many tests as they possibly can, otherwise as a cricket nation they will never progress from being a young, promising team.

I have faith that there are quality players in this squad, but they will never win test matches with the schedules BCB organise. Nor will these quality players be able to mentor new players. If you can't win tests, T20 and ODI doesn't really matter, cos you will be treated like an associate.

So the view is that they've put Ireland on hold to see if a tour of a test nation is possible. Englands Summer is jam packed (Windies Australia, South Africa) and Australia have just toured Windies are heading to England and Ireland for one dayers. I would imagine their players are looking forward to a rest.
I hope Bangladesh comes to Ireland and that its confirmed soon . Given our ranking it should be quite a commercially viable series compared to asking Aussies to play international winter cricket in Darwin.
I'll admit its disappointing how long confirmation is taking to come

ZIMBABWE Cricket (ZC) has finally agreed to have the postponed Bangladesh tour to Zimbabwe moved to April next year.

The Tigers were scheduled to tour Zimbabwe in August this year for two Tests, three One-Day-Internationals and two Twenty20s, but this had to be re-scheduled after the hosts indicated they have some work to do on their pitches in Harare and Bulawayo.

The two nations had suggested different dates for the tour with Bangladesh proposing April while Zimbabwe wanted the tour to take place later this year.

ZC's Trevor Mtangadura confirmed the latest development yesterday adding that they had not yet settled on the exact dates yet.

"What we have so far agreed on is that it (the tour) will be held in April next year, but we are still to come up with the exact dates," said Mtangadura.

I can answer those!

A. It's not that popular!
B. you will see full capacity if the ground holds no more than 400 people with 60% of the crowd being of Asian origin.
C. Ofcourse people who know cricket have heard the name of Bangladesh but I wouldn't use the word popular!

Tiernster
May 20, 2012, 05:44 AM
I would say 1500 to 2000 per game. I'm using projected sales for Afghanistan clashes and attendances vs Pakistan in ODI last year to support this figure. There were 8000 at the England game but England are an exception.

In the last year Cricket has become a lot more popular in Ireland and is on an upward curve. Marketing of the game has improved significantly and we have a CEO who has really pushed the boat out in bringing cricket to areas it hasn't been before.

As a side note the Afghanistan and australia games are both on tv (setanta and sky) while the t20 qualifers were on setanta with highlights on rte (main terrestrial provider).

The proposed visit of Bangladesh would be the biggest coup of the summer as it would be a genuine series against a team we are trying to measure ourselves against.

As a comment to Shehwar a couple of the National Cup games recently had in excess of 500 at them. We know its behind rugby and football but its improving fast and we need these home games to continue the improvement..

I'm glad CI is pushing for things to get finalized. Things need to get finalized quickly, so that both teams can start preparing accordingly.

Ian Pont
May 23, 2012, 12:27 AM
just what is going on?

Cricket Ireland have given Bangladesh until the end of the week to confirm whether they are coming to tour the country in July.

CI have been attempting to finalise a tour that the Bangladesh Cricket Board had themselves requested, after the BCB found themselves without any games scheduled over the summer months.

However, Setanta Sports has learned that the BCB have yet to sign off on the trip to Ireland, seven days after CI expected contracts to be exchanged. The delay has left Cricket Ireland behind schedule in their preparations, and prompted CI chief executive Warren Deutrom to make the ultimatum to the BCB.

"We have told them that we must have this sorted this week," Cricket Ireland high performance director Richard Holdsworth told Setanta Sports.

"Warren has indicated that we want a message by return (of post)."

The Bangladeshi media have suggested that the BCB are keen to make themselves available should either Australia or England want to play Bangladesh in a one-day international (ODI) at the end of their own five-game series in June and July.

However, Holdsworth thin s it is unlikely that the BCB are holding out for a game against Australia or England at the expense of the Irish.

"Australia are coming over for an ODI series with England, and play Ireland before that. England have a packed programme over the summer, right up until they go to Sri Lanka for the t20 in September," Holdsworth said.

"I would be very surprised if Bangladesh were able to negotiate a game with either of them - and we have had no indication that that is the case."

Bangladesh are scheduled to play three ODIs with Ireland, then Mushfiqur Rahim's team will travel to Scotland to play the Scots and the Netherlands in ODIs there.

The original BCB request included a four-day game against the Irish, which CI reluctantly turned down on cost grounds, but Holdsworth thinks that Bangladesh may have delayed finalising the tour to lobby for a four-day game to be slotted in at the last minute.

"It is understandable, as they are coming a long way and want as much cricket as they can get. We would love to play them in a four-day game, but it does become cost prohibitive," he said.

"We don't want to miss this opportunity, but they have to understand our budget. We cannot afford to overspend on these things."

If you are afraid to lose, then close down BCB and stop all cricketing activity. Seriously?

I am afraid to say we had the same approach pre-WC 2011, when we had a chance to play associates in Dubai or play against Sri Lanka (when their WI series was washed out and couldn't be re-scheduled).

We didn't play the associates in case we lost to them, and didn't play SL in case we lost to them.

Any coach will tell you it is match practice that is important not whether you win or lose. Practice and warm ups are exactly that and the players get a chance to try out in matches what they have been doing in nets.

I wonder whether the lack of cricket is related to saving money. for some reason. Cricket is pretty cash rich right now after the WC and Asia Cup hosting. And national cricket must be the priority. Self-serving clubs and certain internal board interests seem to override what is important.

I just feel sorry for the fans who have to put up with it all.

Surely only T20 cricket from here on if possible and 50 overs if necessary. But 4 day cricket...and in IRELAND? I am not criticising the fact that the guys get to play some cricket but make it tons of T20 cricket and make it relevant at least.

I think everyone is taking this T20 slog-fest too seriously. Come on, even the ICC doesn't call it a "World Cup" -- just World T20. And it is highly likely we'll at most play just 2 games there. You can only prepare so much for 2 T20 games to be played 4/5 months in the future.

None. But they don't have to. Most of the best players in the world are playing in the IPL. Others are playing T20 internationals between now and then. Some are playing in England in the domestic T20 competition.

I am sure players prepare for "1 or 2" test matches ahead by playing as much 4 days cricket as possible. But the tour is not 4/5 months ahead of the T20WC, This goes into August in Scotland, where it is even wetter and slower pitches, and the T20WC starts Sept 19th. So we are talking about preparing in the two coldest, wettest cricketing nations for a dry, dusty world cup about 4 weeks before the event - BRILLIANT.

You say people take the cricket event far too seriously. It's a world cricket event! ("world cup" is a title reserved for 50 overs, thats why) That attitude shows why Bangladesh Cricket will not be successful if the coaches and players thought like you. With regard to it being Mickey Mouse, let's check the viewing figures if Bangladesh has a run in the competition...

Lesson to be learned? Prepare correctly for the skills you will need. Treat every competition you enter with respect. Take your cricket seriously.

BCB XI will play more matches than previously scheduled on their tour of Trinidad & Tobago as Jamaica and Afghanistan confirmed their participations in the tournament in August-September.

BCB XI were initially scheduled to play a three-match T20 series against Trinidad & Tobago but it has been turned into a four-nation tourney with the inclusion of Jamaica and Afghanistan.

The Tigers are going to play enough T20 matches before the ICC Twenty20 World Cup to be held in Sri Lanka in September as Cricket Ireland (CI) also agreed to BCB's new proposal to play T20 matches instead of ODIs in late July.

Considering in last world T20 we got our a$$ handed to us by Ireland, we need to be 150% prepared. We are way behind other teams when it comes to T20, if we don't take it swriously we won't improve. But I agree that we shouldn't stop playing other versions just because of T20.

We stopped playing Tests agianst NZ so we could get bundled out for 78 and 58 in the world cup.

2 years later, and we still haven't even scheduled those missing test matches yet.

BCB are idiots, and Bangladesh deserves to get its rear end handed in the next T20 tournament as well. Just for ignoring other formats, I hope we get knocked out of the first round.

[বাংলা]নিশ্চিত হলো মুশফিকদের আয়ারল্যান্ড সফর



অবশেষে বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট দলের আয়ারল্যান্ড সফর নিশ্চিত হয়েছে।

আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট বোর্ড বাংলাদেশের প্রস্তাবে রাজি হওয়ায় বাংলাদেশ দল ১৪ জুলাই সফরটি শুরু করবে। এই সফরে আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে তিনটি টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলবে জাতীয় দল।

এছাড়া স্কটল্যান্ড ও নেদারল্যান্ডের বিরুদ্ধেও একটি করে টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলবে তারা। তবে স্কটল্যান্ডের খেলাটিও হবে নেদারল্যান্ডের মাঠে।

বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের (বিসিবি) ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্স কমিটির চেয়ারম্যান এনায়েত হোসেন সিরাজ গতকাল মঙ্গলবার ইত্তেফাককে বলেন, ‘আমরা সবগুলো ম্যাচ এক ভেন্যুতে খেলার প্রস্তাব দিয়েছিলাম। কিন্তু নেদারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট বোর্ড বলেছে, তাদের স্টেডিয়ামে বেশ কিছু আন্তর্জাতিক খেলা হয়েছে। টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলতে সমস্যা নেই। তাই আমরাও তাদের প্রস্তাব মেনে নিয়েছি। আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে তিনটি টি-টোয়েন্টি খেলবো আয়ারল্যান্ডে এবং নেদারল্যান্ড ও স্কটল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে দুটি ওয়ানডে খেলবো নেদারল্যান্ডে’ |[/বাংলা]

Bangladesh Cricket Team's tour to Ireland has been confirmed. According to daily ittefaq Bangladesh will play 3 T-20 with Ireland, they will then fly to Holland to play one T-20 each against Holland and Scotland. Tour will start from second week of July.

My friend do u really think if kamal wasnt the bcb president than bangladesh would have world class stadium like mirpur chittagong khulna fatullah and great practice facilities outside the stadium , all the money thy receved for world everything was spend on that , we know how corruption is our politics , but just bcz of kamal nobody couldnt occupy the money on their pocket , bcz he madly love bd cricket , bcb almost has now 500 core taka on their bank balance , that wouldbeen never possible if kamal wasnt their , now all this series against zimbawe ireland trinidad bangladesh will play bcz of kamal , he really wanted to see bd playing more often lyk we bd cricket fan does,

Mirpur Stadium doesnt have good facilities for the crowd like stadiums such as SCG have. There are many things that can be improved on in the Mirpur stadium.

FYI Mr. Kamal has been the one who is against the Ireland tour. You should have known that already had you read the news couple of days back.
Furthermore, he wanted to send our players to Pakistan despite the security situation there just for the sake of his dream of becoming the ICC president! Jerk politician if I ever saw one.

Despite all the criticism that Kamal faces on BC, we have to admit that the hosting of the WC in Dhaka went quite well under his administration. If the BPL continues successfully in the future, it will also be a part of his legacy (even if the payments, etc are done by independent franchises)

I beg to differ Navo bhai. If you look at the world cup itself than sure it was succesful. But look back at the preparations. They didn't start the work on time, and even when they did it wasn't done right. When ICC officials visited CTG stadium the site screen broke down. And most importantly he kept on telling how there will be a new stadium aie na shei na at Cox Bazar, and we are still not sure about it. We host the T20 world cup in 2 year, if not now than when?

Now that world cup and BPL is done with I'm sure BCB made more than enough money what exactly are they doing with that money to improve our infrastructure for domestic circuit. Are they making any cricket academy outside dhaka? Whatever happened decentralizing cricket from dhaka and spreading it all around other districts. Still no real improvement being made to fix up our slow dead wickets. They offered an introductory course to the curators, are they doing anything else? Can't fix a proper cricket calendar, NCL had to be stopped in order to make way for DPL, than DPL had to be stopped in order to make way for BPL. The list goes on and on.

Sure the world cup itself was a success but what about everything leading up to it and after it?

So that implies that he doesnt mind losing to the big teams but he is too scared if we lose to Ireland. That shows his mentality.
