ASH’S OMELETTES

A Pakistani in Harare, Saad, is an immense source of hospitality to cricket teams from the Asian subcontinent touring Zimbabwe. The Bangladesh team too have been a recipient of his kindness on a few occasions, with Saad’s family cooking meals that are closer to home than the traditional Harare fare. But the team can give Mohammad Ashraful a vote of thanks for bringing to the table a Bangladeshi favourite.
“They can thank Ashraful for the omelettes,” said Saad. “I did not know that it was such a favourite of people from Bangladesh. But Ash insisted upon the omelettes and how they are made in Bangladesh with more spice, and now it is a staple item whenever they come to dinner.”

I wonder who hit Ash on his head for his erratic behavior with the bat in most games? :)

"Bangladesh's Nos.5-7, Shakib, Mushfiqur, and Nasir Hossain, were the architects of their batting in both innings, scoring fifties each time they batted. It's the first time in Test history that the three batsmen at these positions have scored more than 50 in each innings of a Test."
http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe-v-bangladesh-2013/content/story/633145.html
- So that's a new record.

Zimbabwe have been fined for maintaining a slow over-rate during the second Test (http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe-v-bangladesh-2013/engine/current/match/623577.html) against Bangladesh in Harare. They were found to be three overs behind the required over rate.

As a result, the Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor was docked 60% of his match fees, and the rest of the players lost 30%. According to the rules, every over short warrants a 10% fine, with double that percentage for the captain.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/zimbabwe-v-bangladesh-2013/content/story/633162.html

Really harsh on Taylor. He barely gets enough money as it is, never mind getting docked 60% of his match fee.

Really feel for sorry for the Zim players. After all this is more than cricket for them; this is their bread earner unlike our contracted players who get healthy paycheck on a monthly basis.

Under the circumstance I would say Zim cricketers are performing much better than what our players would have if they were not paid well. I know it hasn't been too long where BD players faced similar financial condition but we all remember how poor their showing were. I am glad that era is behind us.

So much money deducted? Very harsh in my honest opinion. 10% per over? 2-3% would have been a fairer amount

It’s an expensive game: Chingoka
Sports Reporter from Harare (http://www.thedailystar.net/beta2/news/its-an-expensive-game-chingoka/)

http://www.thedailystar.net/beta2/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Sports-419.jpg

The television rights work in descending order. It starts with India, England, Australia and might break even for Bangladesh.”

Having been the longest serving president of a cricket board, Zimbabwe Cricket boss Peter Chingoka has seen the good, the bad and the ugly. He ascended to the post 21 years ago in 1992, just after Zimbabwe received Test status, and has presided over the changing health and climate of Zimbabwe cricket. At different stages of his long tenure, he has been a popular and an unpopular figure. As the figurehead of one of Test cricket’s lower lights, he shares sympathies with an emerging team such as Bangladesh.
On the first day of the second Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, the ever-hospitable Chingoka held a press conference for the visiting journalists at the Chairman’s Enclosure of the Harare Sports Club and spoke freely on issues of Zimbabwe’s cricket, his tenure and the challenges facing him.
In 2006, Chingoka was at the centre of Zimbabwe’s decision to withdraw from Test cricket. It was a tumultuous time, preceded by all of Zimbabwe’s top players refusing to play as long as he was in office.
“Obviously the time when we had to withdraw from playing Test cricket was a difficult time. We the administrators wanted to make sure that cricket becomes a truly national sport and it is played by everyone in the country regardless of colour, race or religion. The top players thought that they should be getting more money and less money going to develop the sport.
“Cricket is a very expensive sport to run, especially the way you have to look after the central contracts. We (Zimbabwe Cricket) have to look after everything — from kit for the primary schools, secondary schools, clubs and provinces to look coaching for the development programme. At the current time, our economy has been having its own difficulties so the sponsorship levels are very low.”
He went on to say that they have survived mainly on the International Cricket Council’s events, but the lack of regular cricket was hurting the board’s finances and also the team. “The television rights work in descending order. It starts with India, England, Australia and might break even for Bangladesh. All the other tours don’t make money. So the Future Tours Programme (FTP) has not had much effect on us as we don’t have many games with the leading teams that could have helped us getting some money. It has been eleven years that we haven’t had full participation. So we have been deprived from that opportunity. And besides the financial aspects, this has also harmed the development of our players. The less matches has denied our players the chance to gain experience and get the exposure,” he added.
In his 22nd year at the top, Chingoka has a lot still on his plate. His term ends in 2014, but he is willing to keep doing the job as long as he is needed. Judging from his demeanour and the authority he carries, 2014 and beyond looks a real possibility.

A typical Bangladesh will relax and let their guard down after winning the first game. And then lose the next two, therefore the series. Lets just hope they can put the typical BD to sleep.

Our cricketers have made a mockery of their own fans.

Just ask them, what do we fans not give you? Do you guys lack money? God knows how much I have money I have wasted on watching these guys play. Do they lack support? Despite losing matches after matches, we never stop supporting them. this is a sad day for our cricket

I agree. I think it'll be 2-0 to Zimbabwe in the Test series. 2-1 to Zimbabwe in the ODI series. 1-1 in the T20 series.

Close. The only difference was that we actually won a Test match.

I expect these guys to be complacent and incompetent being the "better" team that they are, and lose a game or two. Also expect the usual choke. See you in 17 days!

end of the tour ...... the way it started ..... it could have been a bigger disaster ....... but the way we bounced back looked like we will get some good times but again we lost our way and finally some consolation to finish with.

well unless you dont do mistakes u dont learn, so some sometimes mistakes and hiccups are useful, but u need to learn and then make sure tou are not making the mistakes.

the only good thing will be if in the future tours we show that we have learned and we are not making the mistakes

The team was thought to be a better side from the one that toured Sri Lanka the previous month with the return of two star players — Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, but that was not to be.
So the people concerned should find out the reasons: Why did the team fail?
Chief selector Akram Khan however blamed many things except the players.
“Yes, the expectation was high but I think the luck didn’t favour the team. The condition, the wickets, umpiring, the toss factor, all went against us. I don’t want to give any excuse but some off-the-field problems, like the problem in hotel, also affected the performance.

I hate when people say "I don't wanna give any excuses" but list excuses anyways!

Even if ALL ODDS were stacked against us, we shouldn't have lost to a team like Zim 3-4 like that.

Jadukor
May 14, 2013, 01:30 AM
umpiring was a huge problem. Especially when Shakib was given LBW to an inside edge in the 2nd ODI. That changed the game completely and robbed us at least 20-30 runs which would have made our total a competitive one.

Akram Khan, the burly man, mostly gave excuses.

Rokibul Hasan's points were valid, mostly.

Rokibul khalu bhalo bolche, onake kursi te boshano hok ,did he ever work for BCB? he should, he is very passionate & intelligent.
I also watched a TV news where Shujon chachu & another former cricketer asked BCB to investigate about our Zim tour failure & Mushy's emotional decision.

He is not "The Wall" of Bangladesh cricket rather "The Foundation". But I have heard people call him names because he is vocal and many times tells the truth.

Of course their whole family is there. One of the worst things about visiting Bangladesh. You whole gushttie shows up at the airport to pick you up, and then you are cramed in the "microbus"... Just stay home and wait a few hours!

And I hate kids who like to "help" by pushing the cart. Who is that? Rahim's sis?
