The problem with eating biryani in Bangladesh is you never know which way your size will go. You could gain weight, or have diarrhea and lose all the goodies. Coach, if you want your kits to fit, as tempting as they may be, stay away from biryani and fuchka!

I would like to know how the pak supporters consider this as a win. --

1. they are more isolated
2. we won't ever tour them anytime soon
3. their fringe and upcoming players losing out on good money and competitive cricket
4. no way in hell we are sending players to PSL.

BCB should directly approach some top international players who are available in this period. If they get on board, the players can then be distributed among the franchises based on need. Not ideal and people will complain of bias but this is an emergency situation.

If only BCB focused on Sylhet stadium, they would have generated a lot financially and also in terms of cricket popularity. But oh well, lets hope for packed stadium in Khulna tommorrow. BPL needs to kick start.

I've been saying this for ages. Now you know why Bogra, Khulna etc. haven't hosted that many games over the years. It's not just about having decent stadiums. International players aren't used to such low hospitality standards. We need one more stadium in Dhaka and it has to have a capacity of at least 50,000.

Cox's Bazar is the answer. It is as good as Dhaka these days lifestyle wise. Sylhet has the hotels but the stadium needs to be upgraded. If the BCB get their heads out of their a**** and actually gets this done we could have five international venues up to the standard: 2 in Dhaka, Chittagong, Cox's Bazar and Sylhet.

Last time I visited Khulna few months back, and it already had very nice looking shiny lit hotels which looked at least no less than 3 stars. They were all new and actually WIndies were there playing test during my trip. I think as the accommodation was arranged by BCB itself they provided the best possible option and it was okay as no complains came out.

But, as the clubs are completely the responsibility of the franchisees so same may not be happening at least that what I reckon from looking at those pictures.

No they are allowed to coach in BPL. Stuart Law coached Sylhet last BPL. This is actually better, because this can be an additional perk BCB can offer to national team coaches if Franchises want to hire them.

DG anticipated Pakistani players wont turn up. So they just went for 1/2 players. They bought all the English players at base price. Very clever move and looks like a winning move by them.

The infrastructure to support 120 players and management is just not available in Khulna...
No point in blaming the players, they were promised a decent accommodation on their contract and Khulna cannot provide that unfortunately. BCB`s fault, I would have still accepted it if there was a decent crowd, but that wasnt the case either..

I don't think they are complaining just for the sake of it. Remember they actually praised the excellent facilities of Dhaka. Here's what Josh Cobb said couple of weeks ago:

This trip isn’t costing me anything. I have been put up in a stunning hotel room and got a free business-class flight out here. I just had to drink a glass of champagne and get my head down. Believe me, I can’t complain.

'It is massively frustrating that all the press build-up at home has been about pay. We are being treated like kings in a cricket-mad country. When you go for a net, there are guys who will bowl at you for as long as you want. The enthusiasm is incredible.

Wait in line for 1 1/2 hours just through immigration? Isn't that ridiculous? I've never had slower processing than at DAC. And it did not matter what passport I traveled in.

And regarding the love for Khulna, there are minimum expectations of international athletes regarding accommodation. I'm well aware of some of these so called hotels in the outlying areas; they'd make La Quinta look like 5 star palaces. We just make up star ratings and lather it on. There are criteria that dictates star ratings. For example - that hotel that used to be intercontinental or Sheraton or Rupashi or whatever calls itself 4 star. That is so laughable. It would be 3 star at best if that.

I'm well aware of some of these so called hotels in the outlying areas; they'd make La Quinta look like 5 star palaces. We just make up star ratings and lather it on. There are criteria that dictates star ratings. For example - that hotel that used to be intercontinental or Sheraton or Rupashi or whatever calls itself 4 star. That is so laughable. It would be 3 star at best if that.

At Last someone is not afraid to speak the truth.

No offense taken at all. We are all entitled to our respective opinions.

I have been to Khulna, stayed there, spent a vacation there as well. It's not bad at all. Hotel Castle Salam and Royal are 3 star hotels and they are pretty fine on the context of Khulna or even Bangladesh. Even Chittagong has only Hotel Agrabad and Peninsula that are of higher rating. While some people complain sitting in 3 star hotel rooms that aren't suited to their 'expectations', there are people who barely get to eat a meal a day.

I know it's all about expectations but truth is, our management could not do much better in terms of accommodations. They cannot just go and build a 5 star hotel for players overnight. But that too does not mean we stop playing matches in Khulna.

If the facilities and accomodation is not upto par in Khulna, then yes we should stop playing in Khulna or anywhere that has similar problems until it improves. Khulna doesn't even have a decent gym and players have to eat spicy foods which they are not use to from what I read in the newspaper. It would discourage the foreign players to come over here and BPL already has enough issues that are discouraging. If that means BPL is hosted by only two venues, so be it.

Exactly. I agree with Habib 100%.

And as I had said earlier, what passes for a 3-star hotel in some parts of the old country won't even get a pass certificate from hotel inspectors That some people barely get to eat three meals a day is a what one calls an 'ignoratio felenchi' - he informal fallacy of presenting an argument that may or may not be logically valid, but fails nonetheless to address the issue in question.

For BPL to be considered a top-notch competition, you need the top-notch foreign cricketers to give it the bling. If you cannot meet their bare minimum expected needs (I am not even going to address the non-payment issue), we will be hard-pressed to complete teams with quality personnel.

I wasn't complaining about the tweet. I was responding to Ajfar's reaction to as this was BPL Council's fault to some extend that the players had to wait on line.

BPL GC can't do anything about the que in airport immigration, neither they have any authority over there.

Ajfar's comment was also in a mere frustration, so I made a tongue n cheek comment as how what would the GC do next ?

Sorry, do not agree.

If our players can stay there, everyone playing BPL should be able to stay there. If they can't, bye-bye, no money from BPL :)

With all the hanky-panky of non-payment issue last year, no player this year refused to play. Is there anyone who said I will not play in BPL because they don't/didn't pay? As long as money there, there will be no shortage of quality players.

Slowly but surely we are putting those times of over caring foreigners behind. Chamchamir din sesh. If any foreign player not happy with facilities, don't put your name on auctions.

(My post does not mean we should not improve our facilities or pay full in time.)

I think it was more of a shock to the players, after being accustomed to Dhaka are now all of a sudden in a place that couldn't be compared in terms service and facilities. There was nothing wrong with the tweets, they just expressed their opinions of Khulna and shouldn't be taken as an insult. Leagues such as these dictate certain criteria in terms of everything ranging from service, food, facilities etc. You will rarely see international athletes being accustomed to such poor service (incident where they were not fed, thankfully I don't think none tweeted that or went mainstream), and BCB would do well to prevent that next year.

Actually I agree with Yaseer bhai. What do you do before you accept a new job? You do your research, find out if that's the right offer for you and if everything looks satisfactory, you take the job. Now everything at the job may not be picture perfect but you somehow manage to survive some hardships that come along with the job.

The players knew what they are getting into.This is the 2nd edition of BPL. They should've done their research. No point of complaining now. Don't like it, then leave it. No one is putting a gun at your head.

Someone called Brian Lara is also staying there and haven't heard a single complain from him. If he can survive, don't see a reason why others can't..

But we need to improve our facilities. That's a must. I still don't get why places like Bogura Khulna get to held international matches where the facilities are really poor..

If that's a permanent job then yes..I would complain :)

If they send me out to the branch office only for few days, then I would not. I would rather enjoy the atmosphere and my focus will be to do the job as fast as possible and LEAVE. Nijeke shantona dibo aar matro koyek din. Been there done that bhai :)

Now my question to you Razab bhai, suppose they sent you to the branch for few days and they have sent your manager there as well. You find your manager not complaining about that lousy branch and is actually doing his job with an open mind. Now would you still go out and talk about how lousy that place is to your friends or will try to follow your manager's footsteps?

Yes, obviously 'if' the facilities and accommodation are not up to par. That is not the case. Khulna did host 3 International matches just a month back and that included a test match. ICC went through an inspection didn't they? If they were below par, West Indies would have complained too.

I agree that facilities aren't Heavenly but at the same time, they do meet the minimum requirements, may be just, and that is why matches are being hosted there.

Lets just suppose, Khulna is below par in terms of facilities, in that case, the stadium should not have been built with international standards being maintained in the first place.

Jadukor
January 29, 2013, 04:42 AM
There is a big difference between hosting a few matches against a visiting team and hosting a major tournament like BPL. Lot more teams involved and hence a lot more people need accommodation, food etc. Perhaps the facilities in Khulna is adequate up to a certain number of hotels and not beyond that. BCB needs to take note of that and build more facilities so that future tournaments can be hosted without problems.

Bhai, don't get how its a permanent job for the players when they go to BD only for a month or so. And I also don't like the fact that our players get homesick when they go abroad and crave for ek gamla bhaat. It's natural to feel little awkward when you are abroad, but nagging about every little things that go wrong is just childish IMHO.

And the more you complain, the more harder things will get for you. That's how I look at things.

Ranchi being a popular tourist destination, they are supposed to have good hotels and restaurants for the visitors, which we lack in places outside Dhaka/Ctg. that's a maj problem.

Sorry... the first tweet should read that I have not got my phone back. Cash + phone stolen from inside my bag on the ground by a net bowlr.

A local net bowler took my phone from my bag, but no one can be bothered to get him and return my phone and cash. Not good enough!

to offenders house with police, and they have not bothered to go in and get it. #bplt20 should be trying to make sure police do their job!

Disappointed I still have my phone back since it was stolen from inside secure ground area in Chittagong 5 days ago. I tracked the iphone...

Again, BCB should look at it, and make sure that boy goes to jail and Nannes get back his phone + money. This is ridiculous that nobody/BCB doing nothing yet.

This is turning out to be such a joke. ICC needs to start implementing tighter rules. It's a joke that one year you are playing for one national team and next year you get to play for a different country. Players with dual nationality should have to decide early on in their career which team they want to play for. If someone thinks he is good enough to play for England or Australia someday than he should make up his mind about that right at the beginning of his career and not play for associate teams for a while and improve his game and wait for an offer from a better international team.

I'm perfectly fine with players like KP, Trott, Keiswetter playing for england because even though they are South African's they never represented South Africa in international cricket and they pretty much played their entire professional career in England and got selected through the same process as other English players. But players like Ed Joyce, Nannes who played for one team at one point, than got a better offer so went away and than got dumped and now are back to their old team. That's a joke. 1 player shouldn't be allowed to represent more than 1 national team in their career.
