Subrata Roy, the chairman of the Sahara group that sponsors India's men's and women's cricket teams, has said that he is interested in sponsoring Bangladesh cricket.

Speaking at an event in Dhaka, he said that it 'may be possible' for Sahara to sponsor the Bangladesh team. "The Sahara logo is seen on the jerseys of Indian cricket team," he said. "Though I am not announcing it right now, but I can say it may be possible to see the same logo on the jersey of Bangladesh cricket team."

Last month, the BCB had announced a request for quotation (RQF) for the sponsorship rights for the national team. The board, however, couldn't confirm any official approach from the Sahara group.

In February, Sahara and the BCCI's relationship went through a rough patch, with the group saying it was withdrawing sponsorship of the India team and selling their IPL franchise, Pune Warriors. However, after two weeks of negotiations, the two parties patched up, and Sahara is currently serving its third consecutive term as India's sponsors. The last times the rights were open to bidding, in May 2010, Sahara outbid Bharti Airtel, offering Rs 3.34 [US$593,000 approx] crore per match.

Apart from India's senior cricket teams, Sahara also sponsors the country's field hockey men's and women's teams, and was co-sponsor of the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in Delhi.
Certainly better than having a no-name company like Neway, which no one knows what it does yet, as sponsors.

Mr. Roy's family has deep roots in Bikrampur, Dhaka. His family lost land during the ethnic cleansing of the 1940s, and this is a good faith way for him to reestablish his roots here. Almost all of the Indian Bangalis with roots in Bangladesh (often stigmatized as Bangals there), at least the ones I've met over the years, have deep feelings about our country, and I'm glad that Mr. Roy is investing here, a volatile and risky place when it comes to land deals.

His deep pockets would benefit our team immensely.

Mr Subrata Roy is a true gentleman and got a deep routed love for bengalis. I can without doubt state that he is the main reason if not the only reason for picking a player from Bangladesh in his IPL team. Saurav Ganguly got a team in IPL mainly because of him.
His Sahara parivar also has the highest employee in India.

Hope Bangladesh gets the sponsorship......

Honestly, Dont like the Idea of Sahara Sponsoring Bangladesh Cricket. I would rather prefer someone to sponsor from bangladesh. I don't like bangladesh to be refered as a Sponsor from India team. Blood is bangladeshi, Jersey is bangladeshi, players are bangladeshi and sponsor should be bangladeshi. Keep it all deshi. But I would be happy if they sponsor on other things like BPL!

Brother, don't misunderstand my Point -

I have nothing against Sahara Sponsoring Bangladesh!

But Sahara India sponsoring, Yes. I dislike it.

So bangladesh will be giving more publicity to the indian by wearing the sponsors?

In Grameen phone, do you have like Grameen India, or Pakistan?

I think you're seeing boogeymen where there are none. Do you really think the Tigers jersey will say Sahara India Bangladesh if Sahara were to sponsor our team? It will probably just say Sahara, or Sahara and then Bangladesh on top or underneath. I don't see much wrong with that. Right now, the jerseys say Neway, which isn't one jot better.

Be rest assured that it won't be Sahara India, and it's written Sahara India in India's jersey because they always had their country's name in front of the jersey irrespective of the sponsors. We didn't have Grameenphone Bangladesh or Neway Bangladesh for that matter. So if the deal works out, it's probably going to be only Sahara or maybe on the name of the huge project that Sahara is investing in BD.

Is not the parent company name "Sahara Pariwar"? If there's no branch/sister company of Sahara Pariwar in Bangladesh, then it would say "Sahara Pawiwar" not "Sahara India" methinks.
Although having "Sahara Indian Bangladesh" might suit the reality, especially when BD ppl can't even survive one day without even onion from India. During my last visit to BD (Dec'2011) I have not seen any family I went where kids were not watching Indian TVs ,including bengali Sarah one, ETVBA tv channels, instead of many bangladeshi tv channels! Maybe it's just somoyer dabi :)

As much as sahara may be a good company, I think, we must refrain ourselves from indian and pakistani companies. Only because of political reasons and the way people will react. I mean I'm not sure about you guys, but I'm sick of hearing that our country is being sold to india! :facepalm: I dont want a group of people in BD saying that now we are "selling" our cricket team too. -_- cricket should be free from this stupid BD politics, and so, as good as a company sahara may be & as much as we may want it, I'm not sure if it will be worth all the controversy that I can see taking place. But I have no problem with it myself .

Don't think it would be called Sahara India, rather Sahara Matribhumi, the company he is supposed to have formed in BD.

In question of ethics, its far better than the MLM Neway.

But it might not be an easy call as High Highness Loitta is one of the major shareholders of Neway.

people are saying that Sahara is an Indian company so why should they sponsor us. Then why is Tamim sponsored by CA which is a Pakistani brand. Why is Shakib being sponsored by Reebok? Get over it guys. We dont have have to be called 'Sahara Bangladesh'. Just put the Sahara logo on the Bangladeshi jersey and we should see money flooding in.

Mr. Roy is a smart man, obviously smarter than most of us, that is why he just formed a company named সাহারা মাতৃভূমি উন্নয়ন কর্পোরেশন লিমিটেড to tackle anti-India sentiment! I guess you won't have see Sahara India on tiger's jersey. Happy now?

Seriously dude, how much common sense it takes to understand that a cut-throat businessman like Mr. Roy won't hurt the feeling of people by putting name of another country in any national team's jersey that may jeopardize business?

Sahara will drain out huge money from country, more than what they should have. While
most people would not notice that, they would rather be happy to see সাহারা মাতৃভূমি written on the jersey and take personal satisfaction that they are patriot enough to prevent 'Sahara India' logo.

Seriously some of the posts are laughable. Do you think any sponsor will advertise a company in another country? Sahara will only sponsor to develop & advertise the company inside Bangladesh so no-way its going to be called "Sahara India"

Although I agree first preference should be given to domestic company but if huge sum is going to come and if the sponsor doesn't interfere in any sentiments why not?

patriotism is great blanket blind patriotism will cause more harm to one's own country.

If you are asking how an ordinary citizen feels about ? its nothing special they are sponsor for Indian team and a real estate company. They are one among many companies established in India but now trying to branch out.

All I am saying is to investigate all possible option, if domestic company fits the bill give it preference if not go for the better sponsor, don't out-rightly reject it because it is Indian or Pakistani.

I was interested about the work ethics, reputation and popularity of this group. There are some business companies who are hugely popular because of their CSR and commitment to the society. Also there are some companies, who are alleged to be corrupted and run by inefficient and bad people. How do you guys rate SAHARA?

I would prefer a foreign sponsor. In that way, the cash will enter in our country from outside, an inward remittance, you can say. I guess sponsor does not get anything in return except the publicity. I might be wrong, but guess that it is an indirect investment where sponsors do not get back the profit in form of money.

Indian corporate world is the real force behind the economic miracle in India and not the politicians except a select few. These companies as all others in the world are profit driven but their success is directly attributable to their effective practices. I don't have much info on Sahara but I am 100% sure if there is anything remotely off BCCI wouldn't have engaged them. They are the biggest sponsor of Indian team till now.

Personally I have no exposure to Sahara so nothing to say frankly. As India is huge only a select few brands affect all Indians(Tata, Reliance for example). We just consider Sahara as just another brand (apparently its one of the 100 trusted brands in India)

The link in post #10 can get you started. Also Google is your friend and Sahara Parivar is one of the largest and most transparent companies in the world. Loads of material there to answer your questions there. Then again, if you have an utterly irrational but deeply embedded India/Hindu allergy (I'm not assuming that you do in any way), nothing will satisfy you.

Excerpt:

He (Roy) has propounded the corporate philosophy of ‘Collective Materialism’, that advocates collective growth through collective sharing and caring. Roy promotes sports at international to regional level. The Sahara group is a sponsor of National Indian Cricket, Hockey Teams and has adopted 91 sportsmen belonging to the four Indian Olympic disciplines of Boxing, Wrestling, Archery, Shooting and Track & Field. The Group also organizes ‘Sahara India Sports Awards' to felicitate the achievement and efforts of Indian sportspersons in their respective fields and provide recognition to the upcoming young talents.

No offense intended. That's why I said that I'm not assuming that about you in any way. I wrote what I did because there are posters like that in this Forum. Some of them quite openly use pejoratives like "Mallu" in their profile pages, obsess over bearded players no matter how crappy they are, and deliberately avoid supporting Hindu players irrespective of good ability. The double standard is pretty obvious in those guys, not in you particularly.

Personally, I am proud of a Bangladeshi-Indian like Mr. Roy and am deeply touched by his love of our country.

I really cant understand what the fuss is all about....The relatiosn between Ind and BD has been quite good compared to few of it notorious neighbours..Its obvious that Mr Roy wont be using the SAHARA India or its tiranga logo on BD jerseys..there is also a bengali angle to it..I think BD should give it a go.

I can understand the issues if some PAK company sponsored BD team but an Indian company..hmm

None of them are interested in sponsoring BD cricket? Why?
One reason could be ... they are ALREADY established in Bangladesh, some of them even already sponsored BD National team or BD cricket someway. Obviously, Its all about business policy and marketing of a company.

^While I welcome the move as well as the prospective investment from Sahara I wouldn't go overboard and call him a Bangladeshi-Indian. Isn't it interesting that he chose to realise his 'love' for Bangladesh now? Let's see it for what it is.

We're going to have to disagree here bro. Any foreign national with Bangladeshi roots deserves the tag of Bangladeshi-whatever that nationality is, at least in my book. Once they acknowledge the connection and express a desire to nurture those roots, the way Mr. Roy has, the tag becomes even more meaningful.

Also, I've met him and he appeared totally genuine to me. I have no reason to believe that he doesn't share a deep love of Bangladesh with us and again as my own direct experience goes, many Indians with roots in our country.

Bangladesh, because of our endemic corruption and political vindictiveness, is not the best place to make any substantial land deal, let alone deals the size of Sahara's. I firmly believe that love of Bangladesh, rather than profiteering, inspired him to take the risk here. People invest when they think that the combination of capital and time is right for investment, especially related to business expansion. I honestly don't get what you mean by the "Isn't it interesting" comment. What does realization of love have anything to with investing billions here? I guess if those who haven't invested here don't realize their "love of Bangladesh" then? Doesn't make much sense to me.

He has announced that he'll offer studio apartments for as low as BDT 500,000 in many of his housing projects when he doesn't need to go that low in the current market. You gotta pay at least BDT 2 million for for such spaces even in small, semi-rural towns in other divisions! Yet he feels he must because he believes in inclusion and empowerment of those in the fringes, and common prosperity for as many people as possible wherever he does business. He has established that all over India.

That being said, he's a wise business strategist who has built success out of learning from experiences, both good and bad. He knows exactly what it takes to succeed here and has taken up the challenge nonetheless. Kudos to him for that. I absolutely don't share your cynicism about Mr. Roy and what Sahara is doing here.

Max410 is as entitled to his post, hatred and paranoia as we are of our responses to that pathology. I kind of appreciate the fact that he has come out and just said what some disturbed souls feel in this country about "Mallus" (who cannot be trusted because of their genetic propensity for selling out to India, no need to back up sectarianism with either substance or reason) and by extension about India. But here's something to consider:

A Nawab is not an "Emperor". The cavalier and embarrassing conflation is however an accurate expression of the overall substantive quality of his post. The Nawab of the Subah of Bengal was in fact a taxpaying Governor of the Mughals who took our independence from us with the final defeat of the Baro Bhuyians in the late 1500s. That independence was fought for and recovered in 1971 not from Indians, but "fellow" Muslim countrymen, both Bangali and Non Bangali, who exploited us for their own benefit, and later murdered, tortured, raped and exiled our people in the name of "unity of the Muslim Umma against Indian conspiracy". Sadly they and their misguided children are still here and resent the overwhelming majority of our people who don't buy into their vitriolic evil. Hence the belief in extra-electoral fantasies to lord over us "for our own good". They (from BAKSAL through Zia & Ershad to 1/11 CTG), the real enemies of our sovereignty as free citizens of an independent nation, have not succeeded beyond Ershad's 9 years, and never will InshAllah. Fair warning!

There won't be a backlash. These jingoists may be vocal but the loudness of the panoramic retardation in no way represents their support amongst the majority of Bangladeshis.

The real opposition would come from the strong local real estate lobby led by the Bashundhara and Jamuna Groups, and from corrupt BAL/BNP/JP/Razakar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razakars_(Bangladesh)) politicians on their payroll. Sahara's commitment to affordable housing radically alters the status quo in the market, and threatens those profiting from it.

Reebok and CA are completely different things than Sahara. Sahara is a Indian political company where they are sport brands. I would rather have any b class company from Bangladesh sponsoring our cricket than anything from India politics

Hahahahahahaha... Like someone else said, posts such as yours have made my day :)

All corporations are the same, as long as they actually pay the money and don't try to do the dodgy like the last (or current?) TV sponsor did by not paying out the contract.

Both him and his dad studied engineering,back in the days, so he would be a ,man with decent ethics. His company, according to Wiki, is the second largest employer in the second most populated country in the world.

Good luck to him. Hope we get lots in sponsorship money, and I hope it flows on to our essential cricket infrastructure and staffing.:flag:

৯৪ লাখ ডলারে জাতীয় ক্রিকেট দলের স্পন্সর হচ্ছে সাহারা মাতৃভূমি
স্পেশাল করেসপন্ডেন্ট
বাংলানিউজটোয়েন্ট ফোর.কম

ঢাকা: ৯৪ লাখ ডলারের বিনিময়ে চার বছরের জন্য জাতীয় ক্রিকেট দলের স্পন্সর হওয়ার প্রস্তাব দিয়েছে সাহারা মাতৃভূমি। এই বিশাল অংকে জাতীয় ক্রিকেট বোর্ডে দরপত্র জমা দিয়েছে প্রতিষ্ঠানটি।
বিসিবি জানিয়েছে এটিই সর্বোচ্চ দর, যা গৃহীত হতেযাচ্ছে।
উল্লেখ্য, গত ২৫ মে ভারতীয়সাহারা পরিবারের প্রধান সুব্রত রায় সাহারা তার ঢাকা সফরে সময় সাহারা মাতৃভূমি উন্নয়ন নামে একটি প্রকল্পের সূচনা করেন। এ সময়ই তিনি ক্রিকেটদলের টাইটেল স্পন্সর হওয়ার বিষয়ে তার আগ্রহের কথা জানিয়েছিলেন।
সাহারা মাতৃভূমি গ্রুপের প্রধান হিসেবে দায়িত্ব পালন করছেন প্রধানমন্ত্রীশেখ হাসিনার পরিবারের সদস্য, আওয়ামী লীগ সাংসদ শেখ সেলিমের ছেলে শেখ ফাহিম।

[বাংলা]জাতীয় ক্রিকেট দলের স্পন্সর হতে আগ্রহ দেখিয়েছে সাহারা মাতৃভূমি। চার বছরের জন্য ৯৪ লাখ ডলার দিতে চেয়ে দরপত্রে অংশ নিয়েছে ভারতের আন্তর্জাতিক খ্যাতি সম্পন্ন এই প্রতিষ্ঠানটি।

জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর চেয়ে অনেক আগে দরপত্র আহ্বান করে বিসিবি। ১৫ মে দরপত্রে অংশ নেওয়ার শেষ সময় ছিলো। কিন্তু গ্রামীণফোনের অনুরোধে ৩০ মে পর্যন্ত সময় বাড়িয়ে দেওয়া হয়। ২৫ মে সাহারা গ্রুপের কর্ণধার সুব্রত রায় সাহারা বাংলাদেশ সফরে এলে জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর হওয়ার প্রস্তাব দেওয়া হয়। এই প্রস্তাবে রাজি হয়ে সাহারা মাতৃভূমি দরপত্রে অংশ নেয়।

তাদের প্রতিদ্বন্দ্বী ছিলো গ্রামীণফোন এবং রবি। এই দুই প্রতিষ্ঠানের চেয়ে অনেক বেশি অর্থে জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর হওয়ার প্রস্তাব দেয় সাহারা। রবি ৪০ লাখ এবং গ্রামীণফোন ৩২ লাখ ডলারে চার বছরের জন্য স্পন্সর হতে দরপত্রে অংশ নেয়। বুধবার দরপত্র উন্মুক্ত করার পর সাহারা মাতৃভূমিকে নির্বাচন করে বিসিবি।

বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি) সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল বিকেলে এক সংবাদ ব্রিফিংয়ে বলেন,‘সাহারা আন্তর্জাতিক খ্যাতি সম্পন্ন একটি প্রতিষ্ঠান। বিশ্বে তাদের সুনাম আছে। তাদের সম্পৃক্ততায় বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটও এগিয়ে যাবে।’

বিসিবি এখন স্পন্সর প্রস্তাবনা মূল্যায়ন করে চূড়ান্ত সিদ্ধান্ত নেবে। যদিও বিসিবির আগ্রহ এবং সভাপতি মোস্তফা কামালের কথাতে পরিষ্কার সাহারা মাতৃভূমিই হচ্ছে জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর। এতে কোনো সন্দেহের অবকাশ নেই।

জাতীয় দল ছাড়াও বিসিবি একাডেমির স্পন্সর হতে আগ্রহ প্রকাশ করেছে সাহারা মাতৃভূমি। এজন্য বছরে এক লাখ ৩০ হাজার ডলার দেবে তারা।

জাতীয় দল এবং একাডেমিসহ মোট ১২টি বিষয়ের ওপর উন্মুক্ত দরপত্র আহ্বান করেছিলো বিসিবি। তারমধ্যে ১০টিতে দরপত্র পড়েছে বলে ব্রিফিংয়ে জানান বিসিবি সভাপতি। ১০টি স্পন্সর থেকে চার বছরে ১১০ কোটি টাকা আয়ের লক্ষ্যমাত্রা নির্ধারণ করা হয়েছে।

আট বছর পর এই প্রথম গ্রামীণফোন জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর হতে পারছে না। প্রতি দুই বছর অন্তর অন্তর চার মেয়াদে জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর হয়েছে গ্রামীণফোন। সর্বশেষ দুই বছরের জন্য ১০ কোটি টাকা দিয়েছে তারা। জিপি-বিসিবি একাডেমি ভবনের পাঁচ বছরের স্পন্সর ছিলো তারা। এজন্য প্রতিবছর দেড় লাখ ডলার বিসিবিকে দিয়েছে জিপি। তাদের চেয়ে ২০ হাজার ডলার কমে একাডেমির স্পন্সর হতে দরপত্রে অংশ নিয়েছে সাহারা মাতৃভূমি।

জাতীয় দলের স্পন্সর বেশি দামে বিক্রি হলে খেলা সম্প্রচার স্বত্ব অনেক বেশি মূল্যে বিক্রি করা সম্ভব হবে বলে জানান মোস্তফা কামাল। শিগগিরই খেলা সম্প্রচার স্বত্বের জন্য আন্তর্জাতিক দরপত্র আহ্বান করা হবে বলে ব্রিফিংয়ে জানানো হয়।

উল্লেখ্য, গত ২৫ মে ভারতের সাহারা পরিবারের প্রধান সুব্রত রায় সাহারা তার ঢাকা সফরের সময় সাহারা মাতৃভূমি উন্নয়ন নামে একটি প্রকল্পের সূচনা করেন। ওই সময় তিনি বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট দলের স্পন্সর হওয়ার ব্যাপারে আগ্রহ প্রকাশ করেন।

সাহারা মাতৃভূমি গ্রুপের প্রধান হিসেবে দায়িত্ব পালন করছেন প্রধানমন্ত্রী শেখ হাসিনার পরিবারের সদস্য ও আওয়ামী লীগ সাংসদ শেখ সেলিমের ছেলে শেখ ফাহিম। [/বাংলা]

DHAKA: Business giant Sahara Group is set to become the new sponsor of the Bangladesh cricket team after offering $9.4 million over four years in a tender process that ended on Wednesday, officials said.

"We are delighted to announce that Sahara has appeared the highest bidder to become new sponsor of our national team," Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president AHM Mustafa Kamal told reporters.

"They have offered $9.4 million for four years. We will soon formally announce them as our sponsor," said Kamal, without giving any further details.

Officials said Sahara offered more than double their nearest rivals Robi Axiata Ltd - a joint venture between Malaysia mobile phone operator Axiata Group and Japan's leading mobile phone service provider NTT Docomo Inc - which offered $4.28 million.

Bangladesh's top mobile phone operator Grameenphone, the team's previous sponsor and the only other bidder, offered $3.2 million, said the officials.

Grameenphone paid the BCB 100 million Bangladesh takas ($1.22 million) for a two-year deal, which expired in December 2011.

Sahara, which also sponsors India's national cricket team, recently entered the Bangladesh market through its subsidiary Sahara Matribhumi Unnayan Corporation Ltd.

The company said it has a primary investment plan of about $120 million for a township-housing scheme near the capital Dhaka.

Sahara, which sponsors India's men's and women's hockey teams, was co-sponsor of the 2010 Commonwealth Games held in Delhi.

BPL er taka ar sponsorship er taka diye valo kichu kora dorkar rather than increasing salaries and luxuries of the administration and players.
We need the money to flow into:
1. Academy facilities, perhaps hire more international coaches
2. FC facilities (improved pitches, stadiums, indoor facilities, training for local coaches)
3. Age level cricket (Coaches and supporting staff)
4. Subsidies to clubs so that the premier league can improve it's standards and be more competitive
5. Organizing more 'A' Team tours to bouncy conditions

According to Our BCB president Kamal uncle,BCB will soon have almost 500 crore in their treasury. I just hope they are used for the right causes. I don't have a particular problem with the source.Grameenphone and ROBI are not Bangladeshi companies either.So I find it rather funny the way some people are saying that our team is sold to the Indians.I agree with "Jadukor".
The first priority should be getting more practice facilities,Create some good wickets,Make more cricket academies so that more emerging players can be accommodated and most importantly redesign our first class cricket.

Yes, really funny how we fans act differently!

I don't see why Sahara can't be a sponsor of BCB? As long as Sahara pays to BCB, unlike Nibus (which won't happen this time IMHO), why we should be worried??

Now, for your second part, we need a visionary, like Saber bhai who could see the future, who might wanted to improve the cricket infrastructures using the money accordingly.

But BCB couldn't spend $30,000 to send the squad to Zimbabwe few days earlier, couldn't afford to send the squad for a 3 weeks camp in Melbourne when Law asked. I hope Pybus comes up with a proposal to hold a conditional camp/practice games in SA once a year for few weeks and make BCB agree to that. The state of our domestic cricket will always be like our democracy nevertheless.

"500 crore in their treasury"(popped eye).. err.. umm... kinda lot of fund for a board like BCB and corruption flows nearly every artery & vain in BD; smiling politicians and corresponding interested patries should already start thinking how to spend those :drool:. Board was never ever so rich like this before, I must say Kamal helped build this fund so far, wont let others to spend it so easily. I'm expecting serious compitition in next BCB election coming; who wouldnt like to invest on a discovered gold mine like this!
Sahara is a smart party, I'm sure they will keep enough collaboration & control with this BCB investment, unlike treating as donation/bribe, I fervently wish & hope they shall make sure their money is getting utilized for the betterment of BC.

I'll keep willing best wishes for BC.

you okay brother ? Don't get too disheartened seeing Indian company sponsoring us. If you feel ashamed and insecured and have doubt on our boys effort then i request you not to follow tigers and infect us with your negative mentality chitchat. No offense, just a friendly advice.

However, I hope BCB has learnt a lesson from the Nimbus saga and will have the contract for the deal reviewed by appropriate lawyers prior to signing so that if at some point, the deal does go pear shaped (God forbid), at least BCB will get paid its dues. Anyone know if BCB has a legal councel?

So bangladesh will be giving more publicity to the indian by wearing the sponsors?

In Grameen phone, do you have like Grameen India, or Pakistan?

Guys let's try to think positively and logically by putting aside all our preconceived biases towards other countries. Sahara bid 3 times as much compared to our last sponsor Grameen Phone. This indicates there is a growing market value for our team which could have only happened through our performance. The fact that an international company bid for sponsorship for our team should be seen as a sign of progress and also a huge opportunity to attract sufficient resources for cricket development. Our players are still the same... Shakib Tamim Mushfiq won't turn into Indians over this sponsorship deal neither would they turn Finnish if Nokia sponsors us in the future.

So far I found in most cases Ambyvalley sponsored many events with there upper tm logo. I hope that will groom our kit well, if they decide on it though.

June 5, 2012, 09:19 AM
The logo's pretty cool (the flower graphics allude to the Arabic word for GOD) but I feel our would-be colonizers missed an opportunity here. They should change:

1) the name to "Al Ambiah Khilafat Valley" with a Pakistani style "Chand-Tara" on top.

2) the slogan below to "An Our-Kind-of-Muslims Only Gated Community".

Then everyone in the company would have to "revert", grow a beard or don a niqab, and demand South Asian reunification under Pakistan-Saudi-Taliban "guidance". If they don't, they would be exiled, tortured, raped and killed by the children of GOD's deputies from 1971.

^^ Good sarcasm. Its true that in BD you are either Pro-Indian or Pro-Pakistani. If you are for one than its granted you hate the other. I am pro-economic growth. If we have to be pro-China for that matter then so be it.

On topic - this logo is not finalized yet. They might use the matribhumi one as well. But its just a logo. As long as its sleek, I don't have any problem with that. Sahara won't be that fool to put an Indian flag in it.

I have just come back from BD recently ( went after 9years, loved it so much :), stayed there for close to 5 months), and seen alot people, kids love playing football, football mad in sylhet, there isn't any much cricket opportunity in those places and people dont bother with cricket much but for football, they play a lot football in Greater Sylhet than cricket!

Being US-born, your training began from the moment you were born. Guys like me had to wait until we were 7 or so before walking into the British Council library in search of American comic books. That being said, my formal training began after moving to the US at age 12, but my parents prepared me well to serve the Great Satan by instilling anti-sectarian Sufi values during the Liberation War.

LOL...America is a great place to live, materialistically speaking. Its over-rated by its fans, and demonized by the haters. Then again, exploiting the world's poor is getting to my conscience, but not enough to up and move to Canada. Maybe someday...

The difference Between ME & US in exploiting worlds poor is....

ME exploits some poor individuals
US exploits All poor countries..

The difference is Akash and Patal in volume... And yes as AF said.. ME does in a Crude/idiotic way and US ... You know it...coz when you understand it you are almost paralyzed...:)

Looks lotus kamal is really care about bangladesh than any other person

He cared about bangladesh cricket so much that he was and is still so willing to send our players to a war-torn country where professionals teams are a good target for terrorist to gain some attention and bring some disorder.

I thing the best thing he can do for bangladesh cricket is massage our players, our players needs regular massages. I hear that loitta is good at counting money = Good Fingers = High quality messages

A lot of teams don't have the name of their country on their jerseys other then when playing in an ICC tournament. It's much classier anyways. As for recognition, I think the players wearing them are enough.

What really surprises me is that how did we end up with this hue of green? The national flag isnt even this color or green. And even the crimson red became tomato red..Even Zimbabwe like country has Reebok producing their jersey with quality and ours are just low grade ones. I have few of the official BCB jerseys and can testify...

June 14, 2012, 01:28 PM
They dont have to be our flag color, India, Sri Lanka, Australia dont have their jersey with their flag color but since we are using Green at our Jersey, I am assuming that its to reflect the flag color. I mean they can go all black and use green/red stripes ( gucci style) for that matter.. Nevertheless, as long as it looks elegant and attractive and not 'Khet' type, we are good.

Back to Sahara sponsoring it, I just wonder how we will look like when we play against India. Has there ever been one organization sponsoring multiple international side in Cricket?

Also please get us a better kit sponsor to help make better jerseys as Nike, Adidas, Reebok or Puma.

Truth be told, the jersey design is pretty ordinary, borderline khyat even with that gargantuan, Disco Queen collar. As much as I admire Mr. Roy for the positive difference he has made in the lives of many, as well as his other achievements, his personal style leaves much to be desired. Won't surprise me a bit if his personal designer designed our national kit as an afterthought.

We should get Nike to design our Jersey. Failing that, I know at least half a dozen RISD and SFAA MFAs living in Dhaka at the moment. I think Anila Haq will do a great job with her unique vision.

excuse me. The way you write your sentences it is pretty evident that you are still quite young and you are not able to understand many issues that older people know. If you do not really understand some stuffs ill advice you to refrain from posting here because whatever we say you will always oppose us simply because Lotus have been guilty himself.

So please explain me whats the big deal in taking pictures with the team? Is that a must? What kind of world are living in.

Ok answer this question: For bangladesh to improve, we desperately needs a better first class structure, more tournaments, more A and U-19 team tours, more improved facilities and yet we arent seeing expected improvements. And its Kamal's fault. Now what are you gonna say???

There are Jerseys, there are Zarsees, and then there are Zaisseej. This one looks perpetually stuck between the last 2. The Gulistani kyat-kyata "g'irin" doesn't help the cause either. But of course they did a decent job with the "bulu". Can't rile up the Elders of Zion now.

England have been coming up with some awesome ODI kits lately. I might just get this one. I'm also a fan of the Aussie gold and green kit.

Current jersey is average. Nothing extraordinary but not that ugly either.
It's a no frills jersey for a no frills series. Jerseys change on a series-by-series basis. We will have some good ones and some bad ones in the process. As has always been the case. No need to go into depression over it.
