This pathetic rain has already killed whatever hype I had

I can't get over the fact that a drizzle, yes a drizzle ruined the match. Please don't tell me it wasn't a drizzle. I have been gone outside regularly this evening, and there was nothing but slight drizzle

And why is mahmudullah listed as the captain and wicket keeper of his side?

This is definitely an error

It's likely that this match will get abandoned as well.

Kevon Cooper has always been deadly in BPL.

Are they expecting us to believe that this light dizzle will deprive us from 2 back to back matches?

This BPL 2016 is so important for Soumya to get back to form. I really hope he does well in this edition of BPL. So that we can play both him and Imrul in LOI leg of NZ series.

This BPL is important for many players on the fringe who are eager to get back into the mix of things at the National level. BD needs T20 specialists...this is the only time where they can be noticed.

Make it count, you know yourselves.

^^Alok Kapali, can he make this opportunity count? Abdul Majid, can he keep up the good work?

It could be very costly, but BCB should invest in rooftops for SBNS.... Roofttops should keep the rain away from the pitch. like a Dome structured rooftop

First of all, its not possible to create a dome structure in SBNS, atleast trust the opinion of a civil engineering student :D

Also, even if it was possible to create a dome while constructing a new stadium, it would cost around 15-20 million USD alone and the floodlights will always have to be on which would mean that particular venue can't be used for tests AT ALL.

Its not cost effective. Bangladesh hasn't really struggled with rain curtailed matches as much as one would think, but when it comes to depression and cyclones nothing could have been done.

What the heck is going on? Didnt rain stop like 45 mins ago? What on earth are they doing? Pathetic

Whats also worse is that the folks at CI aren't keeping us updated.

rain came back :facepalm:

but at one point you have to agree, this rain is nothing ominous. Infact if you ask me, the previous match could have been played for 5 overs and there would have been no damage done at all. As its a shortened game the outfield and pitch won't get too wet.

The good thing is, rain forecast for the night suggests comparatively less chance of precipitation

Nothing fancy...those of you who have been to Prophet (SalAllahu A'laihe wasallam's) masjid in Madina, KSA...I was very impressed with the Masjid Architecture...The roofs open and close on demand. we could do something like that in SBNS so roofs remain open during day and closed during rain.

The reporters on the ground dead or something? lol last update was at 18:00 local time, about an hour and a half ago. Nothing since.. surely the games going to get called off

Just shows the standard BPL has set in the world.

There is hardly any media correspondent at the stadium, no update. I hear BPL's TVR ratings is 2nd only to IPL, but in all other aspects

Yes, the 2nd match has also been "officially" called off.

What a farce! And nothing could have been done about it.

Bangladesh should seriously consider building a roof at Mirpur stadium.

Rifat
November 4, 2016, 10:48 AM
Cheap Idea:

Make Triple layer of Clothing(like a rickshaw) and use that as cover to shield the stadium from rain. use Waterproof material that does not go through wear and tear and use that to cover the roof on demand basis
