Bangladesh to play additional T20i against the Netherlands

Following discussions between the BCB and the Royal Netherlands Cricket Board (KNCB) an additional T20 international has been arranged during the Netherlands leg of Bangladesh's tour of Europe. The Bangladesh Team will now play a second T20i against the Netherlands on Thursday, 26 July 2012 at Voorburg, The Hague, a day after their first T20i against the hosts at the same venue.

The second T20i between Bangladesh and the Netherlands will start at 6pm Bangladesh Standard Time.

It's a good news but Netherland is a very weak team. Playing against them can we get any benifit? Rather if we could arrange another T20I against Ireland it would be more useful.

Very good news.
Win win situation for both teams.
Double win for us if we can manage to win all the remaining matches in this Euro tour.

You should play as much as you can while you are on a roll and BCB has done a good thing here.

achha, keu ektu bujhay dile bhalo hoy....

so the triangular series was not recognized as T20 international cuz it was outside ICC's ftp, but our Europe tour is (and the t20s are recognized and counts towards the ICC ranking).

now adding this extra match on the fly still makes it within the FTP and counts towards the ranking?

p.s: reminds me of a 'para' cricket match back in my day. The match was very well organized and the preparation went on for few weeks but the actual 25 over match finished so fast (you know, it was all about going down the track back then) that we had to organize a quick 5-7 over match to make use of the rest of the afternoon.

Exactly. This whole ranking system is such a joke. Everyone will laugh at this. Wonder how it will feel to go down to number 9 from number 1.

But smart move from BCB. You can't be a #1 team overnight. This is a golden opportunity. And we all know how good we are to acknowledge anything that is 'FAU'

এক নম্বর হতে ম্যাচ বাড়াল বাংলাদেশ

[বাংলা]ক্রীড়া প্রতিবেদক : আজ এবং আগামীকাল স্কটল্যান্ড এবং নেদারল্যান্ডসকে হারাতে পারলে আইসিসির টি-টোয়েন্টি র‌্যাংকিংয়ের দ্বিতীয় স্থানে জায়গা করে নেবে বাংলাদেশ। এমন জানলে হয়তো ইউরোপ সফরের সূচি নির্ধারণের সময় অতিরিক্ত আরেকটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচের বন্দোবস্তও করে ফেলত বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি)।আয়ারল্যান ্ডকে ৩-০ ব্যবধানে হারানোর পর বিসিবির তৎপরতায় তেমনই ইঙ্গিত।

বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল আয়ারল্যান্ড বিজয়ের পরই ইউরোপ সফরে আরেকটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ আয়োজনের নির্দেশ দেন। সে মতে শনিবারই নেদারল্যান্ডস ক্রিকেট অ্যাসোসিয়েশনের সঙ্গে যোগাযোগ করা হয় বিসিবির পক্ষ থেকে। বাড়তি এ ম্যাচের পুরো খরচ বহন করেও নাকি রাজি বিসিবি। কিন্তু আন্তর্জাতিক ম্যাচ আয়োজনের জন্য আইসিসির অনুমতি অত্যাবশ্যকীয়। ডাচদের সামনে তার চেয়েও বড় বাধা ওয়ার্ল্ড ক্রিকেট লিগ (ডাব্লিউসিএল)। ২৭ জুলাই সংযুক্ত আরব আমিরাতের বিপক্ষে বিশ্বকাপ বাছাই পর্বের ম্যাচ রয়েছে নেদারল্যান্ডসের। এ অবস্থায় ২৬ জুলাই আরেকটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ খেলতে রাজি ছিল না নেদারল্যান্ডস। গতকাল ভুরবার্গ থেকে টেলিফোনে বাংলাদেশ দলের ম্যানেজার তানজিব আহসান জানিয়েছেন, 'আরেকটি ম্যাচ আয়োজনের চেষ্টা চলছে। দ্রুতই জানা যাবে আরেকটি ম্যাচ খেলা সম্ভব হবে কি না।' রাতে বিসিবি ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্সের ডেপুটি ম্যানেজার সাবি্বর খান জানিয়েছেন, শেষ পর্যন্ত ২৬ জুলাই ম্যাচটি খেলতে রাজি হয়েছে নেদারল্যান্ডস। ডাচ ক্রিকেট অ্যাসোসিয়েশনের সিইও এ কথা নিশ্চিত করেছেন। ফলে বাংলাদেশের সামনে র‌্যাংকিংয়ের শীর্ষে ওঠার সুযোগটা ভালোমতোই থাকছে। কেবল বাকি তিনটি ম্যাচে জিতলেই হয়[/বাংলা]

What makes you think BCB is after the ranking. Ranking is just part of the package, main focus is playing in different conditions as an unit and work out the kinks. Any game is better than no game at all.

Why so negative....yes in cricket any team posses the ability to win but we should and will win against Holland......have faith.

I am afraid I have to disagree. We are not just beating up on minnows. We beat WI twice already. And as we play more matches, we will eventuaally beat all other top teams just like the way we did in ODI's. But we must play as much as possible. Look at us, we played the least number of matches among 16 teams! Before this tour we played only 6 and NZ played 26!

And to be honest with you based on the current form, we should be able to beat 10 out of top 15 teams.

We will beat:
1. Kenya, 2. Canada, 3. Scots, 4. Netherlands,

We just beat:
5. IRE, 6. South Africa, 7. ZIM

Last time we played, we beat:
8. AFG, 9. WI

We should be able to beat:
10. NZ

We might be able to beat few of the following:
11. SL, 12. ENG, 13, PAK, 14, AUS, 15, IND

So I dont see anything wrong with being number 4.
Based on the current form, if we can reach the semis in T20 WC, by beating 3 of the above, I think that should be enough to justify our top rank.

I think the more we play competitive cricket, its good for us, even if we lose. I would take it if we arrange a couple match with Afghanistan too, to set the records straight ( as we did with Ireland).

Prior to the world cup, we are the only country thats playing all these T20s and this will definitely show when we start the tournament. The players are able to get their rhythm all set for that type of a game which other teams will not have much time to settle in for. However, Bangladesh is general needed more T20 practice to catch up with other nations and now we are seeing players like Mahmudullah, Mushfique finally getting the hang of it when those two were the ones always took time to settle. We also found a useful opener in Ashraful which we didnt before we started this T20 journey... so all in all, I think playing more matches are good... though I doubt the level of benefit we get playing in European conditions..

Thank you, Mr Lotus Kamal to arrange this extra match—it will fulfil the ICC requirements to play 8 T20 matches in one Calender Year, so we will be in the Ranking—does not matter 4 or 9?

The more we play T20..the more we learn for sure—and winning is a habit—it does not matter with Small team or Big Brother—if we are used to win T20 Matches continuously—the chances to beat Big Brother will be increased: BD will like to win—no matter what?

AFA i can assume ranking system is the same 4 all formats (t20,ODIs,tests).
The reason why BD rose above so rapidly is bcoz before the Ireland tour, Irish was several steps ahead of us in ranking & lower ranked teams get more ratings after beating higher ranked teams. And higher ranked teams lose more ratings after losing against lower teams. Bd played just 6 ODIs before this series & now they've played half the previous aggregates and won all. So the winning percentage has increased rapidly hence the ratings increased rapidly. U people plz stop wondering how BD climbed to no-4 & stop terming t20 ranking a joke. When BD will play more t20s, there won't be these kinda dramatic increase or decrease

besides none of the other test nations care about ranking other than the #1 ranking, maybe if they're ranked #2 they'll talk about how they could reach #1 if they do this blah blah blah, but otherwise ranking isn't to much of a thought because they all know that they can all beat each other at anytime, it's just about playing your best in that match and that series.

« আগের সংবাদ (http://www.prothom-alo.com/detail/date//news/276223) পরের সংবাদ» (http://www.prothom-alo.com/detail/date//news/276225)
হল্যান্ড সফরে দুটি নয়, তিনটি ম্যাচ খেলবে বাংলাদেশ। আজ ও আগামীকাল পূর্বনির্ধারিত স্কটল্যান্ড ও হল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে বাংলাদেশ দল দুটি ম্যাচ খেলবে। বাংলাদেশ এরপর হল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে খেলবে বাড়তি একটি ম্যাচ। হল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের সঙ্গে আলোচনার পর কাল নিশ্চিত হয়েছে ম্যাচটি। বিসিবি ক্রিকেট পরিচালনা বিভাগের ভারপ্রাপ্ত ব্যবস্থাপক সাব্বির খান জানিয়েছেন, ‘হল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের প্রধান নির্বাহী রিচার্ড কক্স আমাদের অনুরোধে আজ (গতকাল) আরেকটি ম্যাচ হওয়া সম্ভব বলে জানিয়েছেন।’ হল্যান্ডের সম্মতিক্রমে ম্যাচটির দিনক্ষণও চুড়ান্ত হয়ে গেছে। ম্যাচটি হবে আগামী ২৬ জুলাই, শুরু হবে তা হল্যান্ডের স্থানীয় সময় দুপুর ২টায় (বাংলাদেশ সময় সন্ধ্যা ৬টা)।
হঠাৎ করে দুই ম্যাচের জায়গায় তিন ম্যাচ খেলতে চাওয়ার কারণ র‌্যাঙ্কিংয়ে টিকে থাকা। আয়ারল্যান্ড সফরের আগে বাংলাদেশ টি-টোয়েন্টি র‌্যাঙ্কিংয়ে ছিল না। আয়ারল্যান্ডের বিপক্ষে সিরিজ জিতে সেই বাংলাদেশই এখন চারে! কিন্তু র‌্যাঙ্কিংয়ের নিয়ম অনুযায়ী ২০১০ সালের ১ আগস্ট থেকে আগামী ৩১ জুলাই পর্যন্ত কমপক্ষে আটটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ না খেললে র‌্যাঙ্কিং থেকে আবারও হারিয়ে যাবে বাংলাদেশের নাম। হল্যান্ড ও স্কটল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে আগামী তিনটি ম্যাচ নিয়ে এই সময়ের মধ্যে বাংলাদেশের ম্যাচ হবে এখন আটটি। যা র‌্যাঙ্কিংয়ে টিকে থাকার চাহিদা পূরণ করবে।
বিসিবি সে কারণেই হল্যান্ডে আরেকটি ম্যাচ খেলার চেষ্টা চালিয়েছে এবং হল্যান্ডের সহযোগিতায় বাংলাদেশের উদ্যোগ সফলও হলো।

The extra game was unnecessary in my opinion. I don't think there is any credibility to this ranking anyways. No one will believe we are stronger than some of the teams below us. Shakib already has an injured finger from the Ireland series. Playing three T-20s in three consecutive days could lead to further injuries for our players.

I don't have a problem with our ODI rank or # of points...we're on 60 something and about 20 pts behind the next established side (NZ on 80 something). That is a fair assessment of where we are at, IMO. Similarly our Test rank is also pretty accurate, glitches aside, zero points. I don't disagree about your post, but until we have beaten those teams the ranking is meaningless. The reason we're so far ahead is because we haven't played many matches and neither have Ireland. Thus we both have/had infalted rankings. If we keep it up after 20 more matches, then kudos!

In general, I don't really care about this format, although I wake up at insane hours to follow/watch T20s still. Such is my addiction.

বিসিবি সভাপতি আ হ ম মোস্তফা কামাল আয়ারল্যান্ড বিজয়ের পরই ইউরোপ সফরে আরেকটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ আয়োজনের নির্দেশ দেন। সে মতে শনিবারই নেদারল্যান্ডস ক্রিকেট অ্যাসোসিয়েশনের সঙ্গে যোগাযোগ করা হয় বিসিবির পক্ষ থেকে। বাড়তি এ ম্যাচের পুরো খরচ বহন করেও নাকি রাজি বিসিবি। কিন্তু আন্তর্জাতিক ম্যাচ আয়োজনের জন্য আইসিসির অনুমতি অত্যাবশ্যকীয়। ডাচদের সামনে তার চেয়েও বড় বাধা ওয়ার্ল্ড ক্রিকেট লিগ (ডাব্লিউসিএল)। ২৭ জুলাই সংযুক্ত আরব আমিরাতের বিপক্ষে বিশ্বকাপ বাছাই পর্বের ম্যাচ রয়েছে নেদারল্যান্ডসের। এ অবস্থায় ২৬ জুলাই আরেকটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ খেলতে রাজি ছিল না নেদারল্যান্ডস। গতকাল ভুরবার্গ থেকে টেলিফোনে বাংলাদেশ দলের ম্যানেজার তানজিব আহসান জানিয়েছেন, 'আরেকটি ম্যাচ আয়োজনের চেষ্টা চলছে। দ্রুতই জানা যাবে আরেকটি ম্যাচ খেলা সম্ভব হবে কি না।' রাতে বিসিবি ক্রিকেট অপারেশন্সের ডেপুটি ম্যানেজার সাবি্বর খান জানিয়েছেন, শেষ পর্যন্ত ২৬ জুলাই ম্যাচটি খেলতে রাজি হয়েছে নেদারল্যান্ডস। ডাচ ক্রিকেট অ্যাসোসিয়েশনের সিইও এ কথা নিশ্চিত করেছেন। ফলে বাংলাদেশের সামনে র‌্যাংকিংয়ের শীর্ষে ওঠার সুযোগটা ভালোমতোই থাকছে। কেবল বাকি তিনটি ম্যাচে জিতলেই হয়[/বাংলা]

That additional match was added to stay in the ranking system otherwise Bangladesh would once again out of the ranking system. If Bangladesh can win rest 3 matches then they will go up in the ranking BUT that was not the reason which Kalerkontho mentioned in their report.

Here is PA report


কিন্তু র‌্যাঙ্কিংয়ের নিয়ম অনুযায়ী ২০১০ সালের ১ আগস্ট থেকে আগামী ৩১ জুলাই পর্যন্ত কমপক্ষে আটটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ না খেললে র‌্যাঙ্কিং থেকে আবারও হারিয়ে যাবে বাংলাদেশের নাম। হল্যান্ড ও স্কটল্যান্ডের সঙ্গে আগামী তিনটি ম্যাচ নিয়ে এই সময়ের মধ্যে বাংলাদেশের ম্যাচ হবে এখন আটটি। যা র‌্যাঙ্কিংয়ে টিকে থাকার চাহিদা পূরণ করবে।

Any practice is good practice. Rankings doesn't matter, but this is good match practice. Would RTD be playing? And Ned has an extremely decent T20 side. People like Cooper are regulars in Australian domestic cricket.

Totally agree Ned is a decent T20 side and RTB, Cooper, Borren, Wesley they all played good recent times and get good support for English counties...

Bangladesh would have lost their place in the rankings next month as, by the original schedule, they would have played only seven T20s in the qualifying period. The additional match will help them fulfill the qualification requirements.

That means after playing this additional match, next month our ranking will jump again. Because some of our lost match will cut off from counting. Among the last eight matches Bangladesh won most of the matches

That's true. But to make that happen, we needed to play this additional match :)

Naimul vai, the additional match is already scheduled, after europe tour it will be 6 matches we'll have played in 2012 and in 2011 we played 2 matches where we won against WI Oct, 2011 and were defeated by Pakistan Nov,11.

I'm very happy ,all I want is to see BD playing more matches.
As we don't play T20S that much this will help us to learn more,improve our game,improve our skills & mentality.
Doesn't matter at all if it's a lower ranked team because we are no big team either,the ranking doesn't prove much, we are yet to beat other test playing nations except WI in T20s.
So better that we play & win against teams like Netherlands/Ire/Scot.
But no way we should take them lightly because it's T20, it can be anyone's game,so we need to play our best cricket.:flag:
Well done BCB. :up:

"Bangladesh to play additional T20 to stay in the ranking." I'm sure they want to cancel that game now so they can be off the radar. lol

Guys, don't be so sure. You're talking about Netherlands. We're able to lose against any side, so our spot at #4 is going to be at stake here.

We should pray extra nofol namaz for a win here. Otherwise, the joke will be on us!

Boy oh boy...boy oh boy...I hate it when I'm always right!

We should not play 8 matches in a calender year. Its better to stay out of the ranking system than staying behind Ireland, Netherlands in ranking.
