Dear members, I have created a "BanglaCricket" Whatsapp Group for Champions Trophy.

Feel free to Join. PM me, will add to the Group.

Those that are going to the stadium please do join in, would be cool to see pictures from ground, any players they get to meet, live experience and messaging from ground.

It's the first time this has been done, the BC Whatsapp Group. Hopefully it will be fun and enjoyable. Do PM me - Thanks

Current status:

Couple of members from FB list accepted to join, few of them are very close to some players.

Some of them are cricket fanatic, others want to join - but on screening their profile, decided against it.

Hoping some BC members will join the group.

does the group only has BC members? I am skeptical to join if there are people outside of BC.

SportingBD
May 17, 2017, 02:08 PM
Mainly from BC, with some exception (especially those that have close links with BD players)

But I will not add more than 10 members outside BC.

I am screening their profile carefully and trying to get all sort.

Angry posters, than a group to calm them down, another group to always remain positive, needs a good balance.

Let's see how many established BC members we can get.

No problem:up:

It's hard to avoid sylhetis in UK, more than 90% of Bangladeshi are Sylheti.

Most cricket clubs etc are run by Sylhetis, so the link is justified.

Breaking News: Nadim Al Hasan, Bengali Imrul Pagol Kayes and brother Wakidul has requested to join the BanglaCricket Whatsapp Group! Inshallah we will get more members from BC! Brother Wakidul will go to 4 out of the 5 matches here in U.K., with 30 odd people, hopefully we get to see some good pictures from the ground and he, along with others going can share their experience! So far from BC three people have been added to my excel list - I will add all of them to group togerther :)

Anyone can do that. But it's hard to screen people profile. To know what kind of posters they are, do they genuinely follow BC cricket? Are they just trolls? Like pretending to be Bangladeshis etc? Be sure that I am screening most people profile while adding them, and most in BanglaCricket are proper Bangladeshi fans and have some good knowledge of cricket. I am not interested in randomly adding people just for the numbers.

At first I was very tentative about this Group. I must admit, boys have made a success of it. We had 19 members during CT, couple left. Now we are 16 members, couple of those who left the group after CT rejoined again. Must thank the boys for making this group work out. I think more will join ahead of Australia/SA series. PM me if your interested.

These are the things that would make BC alive again. Great initiative. :applause: Take your time.

BC WhatsApp Group seem to be more active than BanglaCricket.

Topics discussed so far - would love more to join.

- Domestic structure (use of small number of stadiums)
- Players setting a ceiling for next generation of cricketers.
- Future captain of Bangladesh
- Bowlers underperformance, especially pacers + Walsh.
- Rinathq meeting with Isam and sharing some of the unpublishable issues.

^ this was only the last week.. before that spoke different topics.

Once again, feel free to join.
The members are very friendly and have amazing cricketing knowledge, passion and love for BD cricket.

Exactly. It should be controlled by admin/mod. I offered them the chance. Sent all of them the message prior to opening the thread. Got responce saying they won't be part of the group. However, I can go ahead open the thread. Only after I received the go-ahead, I opened the thread. At the moment, the BC users that are taking part making a real success of it, and it was very very useful for CT17. I see the group name has changed after or just prior to your post, hmm. Anyways hopefully more members will join, remember it's not compulsory to join - people are using different ways of communication to stay in touch of cricket, things are moving fast. People are moving towards Twitter, Whatsapp etc amongst others.

Why you flaming after me bro? Where did you see advertisement? When I was saying there are certain things which Rinathq can't include in his article becuase it's unpublishable. We found out in the Whatsapp Group and some of us were shocked. You are running wild after me, and if mods are still not seeing the trend, than you do have some special power. But I'm sure I will be the one getting the warning. Even after putting you on ignore list you have been coming after me.

And the fact that u are writing about something "that can not be published/or put in the forum" you're exercising extremely poor judgement because the intervieweee is likely reading this thread and will not appreciate this or give any future inside info ...

When you put someone on ignore list and they quote you, than the ignore function doesn't work, and the post becomes visible. When I first posted, you couldn't see my post. However, somehow you were able to quote me, by pressing the view post button. Why did you do that when you can see your on the Ignore list? Do you realise you are after me? No one complained about the Whatsapp Group, the thread was up nearly 3-4 months at BC, but you were the first? You keep going after people, and when people respond angrily they get banned, who wouldn't respond angrily when you keep going after them? But you go on with your way of posting and the others that respond angrily get taken out of existence.

We have no problems if members want to meet up outside the confines of the Forum and discuss cricket. However idumb makes a good point about stating clearly that this is not an official group.

@sportingbd we did receive your invite but i don't think anyone from the mod team wants the additional excitement of "real time chat moderation" at the moment. When we do, we might create an Official social media group on whatsapp ourselves.

That being said, all the best to your private group which seems to have many members already.

Bhia it's not about angering me, be sure of that. It's about me putting you on ignore list so I don't get to interact or see your post. But you purposely even after seeing that are being ignored, still open my post by pressing the "see post button" why? just to go after me? Why you so concerned with what I do? Like you have to open or view my post even after I try to avoid engaging with yourself? Doesn't that say something?

How did you quote me at the first place? If you are on my ignored list, how were you able to quote me, without viewing my post, answer with honesty. Secondly you are now retreating as you couldn't answer to that post and trying to make it look I'm manipulating, once again, I am responding to your allegations. That's the best thing to do report and I will put my case forward with evidence, if that means I have to dig the whole system.
