No A team tour for nearly two years. No urgency to play international matches after Pakistan pulled out. 2 full months of rest for players? Which other international team go through such a long holiday? What is Akram Khan doing? Has he failed in his role? Are all the BCB directors qualified in their role? Importantly how do they use the money generated from income for our cricket development?

Half the BCB officials were in UK during the champions trophy and funded by the board.

What else do you expect. Our board is rubbish. They don't do anything

Failed?

In what sense?

Isn't there an A team touring Aussie land right now?

No. That's a HP tour. The incompetent Akram Khan tried to cheekily say the HP tour is like a A team tour. Pakistan pulled out of the series, instead of being proactive and arranging something they took the lazy route of saying our players need rest. What the hell? India team need more rest than our players with the amounts of non stop cricket they play. Our boys are now on 2 month break. Plus, for nearly 2 years now they have failed to arrange any tours for the A team! Brings us back to Akram Khan again. Forget A teams! When was the last time our U-19 team played overseas? This are serious issues. The needs to be more transparency and accountability in terms of how they (BCB) spend money for our cricket development, we know they make good money.

We fans need to hold them accountable. The more awareness, the better.

Things are just fine. Don't worry. Mash will be captain for another 10 years. And world class Mushfiqur will be here to save us. BCB is awesome! And if you don't agree, we will take away your free speech to ensure that you are an upstanding citizen of the BC forum.

No use fans have no say.

We need some sort of a cricketer's association which is vocal

Honest question, why are you always behind Mushfiq's and the senior player's A$$? What has the lad done to you?

BCBs only success so far has been recruiting Hathuri.

A key parameter to test a boards success is whether the team has a Second XI good enough to challenge the main team. In a country of 160 million, BCB is struggling to fill gaps in the main team.

Look at how Heath Streak is achieving great result for Zimbabwe as head coach.

How the hell did BCB not retain him? we had enough money to offer him...

But as usual... we went for the cheaper option.

Hathura and Heath was a deadly combination for us.

^^ why did he left in the first place?

He was offered a job in India, something to do with running a academy. He was also bowling coach for an IPL team.

This could have easily been stopped, or worked some kind of deal.
Let him take part in IPL.. and also work in BD.. but no...its our.. morons...

They don't have a clue how to make deals... no clue at all..

I posted this already on the HP thread, but this thread is more appropriate:

BCB is a government agency run by the Bangladeshi government. The taxpayers of BD deserve to know how and where they spend the millions that is generated in revenue. As a government entity, this information is supposed to be public and readily available for anyone to see.

I've emailed them and requested this info (no response yet). I would encourage you all to do the same:
info (at) tigercricket.com.bd

If anyone is curious, BCB has a consitution: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4j...BXMU45YTA/view

And an anti-corruption code (which is a laugh, because it spells out everything a participant can/cannot do, but nothing about corruption and nepotism at the management level). https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4j...czamZudHM/view

@Yankees = IF what you say is true, they have to make the information public.

But I highly doubt they will - would love to see the annual accounts.

I agree with this. Fans have to demand accountability and transparency.
Here it seems like more than the fans.. its the tax payers..

So it has to be both fans/tax payers that demand to know how and where they spend the money.

Streak had a very lucrative offer from IPL. A lot of high profile coaches are going to IPL because they offer a lot of money. And it is a 3-4 months stint.

BCB can't do either. In fact no board can. Pay them such high salary for 3-4 months employment.

You have to understand that no coaches like to stay too long in a foreign land. Eventually they like to go back to their home country and spend time with their family. Streak just did that now.

So you can't really blame BCB for all that.

No. Can't agree here, can fully blame BCB.

During IPL hardly any international tour goes on.
Hence if BCB allowed Heath Streak to coach in IPL, It wouldn't impact BD.

Rather, you are able to keep a very very good coach for 7-8 months of the year.
Plus we hardly have many international tours, at most its 5/6 months.

There was opportunity to work on a deal with Streak, BCB failed.

Getting to coach your own country as THE head coach vs coaching in a sub-continental (non-Western) country as an Assistant. Seriously, even BCB can't fight that. There are some things money can't buy.

But yes BCB is sitting on its rear end in terms of A team and other initiatives and definitely good at getting its officials involved in tours.

Let's be honest.

Heath had the opportunity to coach his country's national team as the head coach.

It's difficult to live in Bangladesh. The traffic, lack of facilities is not great.

Lets not forget the mess the current BCB regime had to start with. I think they ve done fairly well. A coach staying for a long period, or a strategy being implemented over long period of time is not very common in Bangladeshi sports. And even in Hathurusingha's stint, there was a time when Naimur Rahman went after the coach, was also a time when the coach took a lot of stick regarding the new selection system. But Mr. Nazmul Hasan has been sensible in dealing with these issues, keeping the country's cricket first, politics second. And when tough measures needed to be taken these guys did.

Not to mention we ve got some very good coaches along with Hathurusingha. Simon Helmott was a great capture for HP. Our current Under 19 coach also happens to be a former Big Bash head coach.

But things could have been a lot better, had they been more proactive with academy and Under 19 much earlier. We would have reaped benefits now. Also the lack of A team is a big problem. Practically no bridge or vehicle for the likes of Shahriar Nafees to suggest they deserve a place in the NT.

BCB can also do a lot better in bowling. By now should have had a spin coach. And pretty much convinced Walsh is not the right person for us.

These guys have nothing to defend themselves with. Are you telling me for nearly two years they couldn't arrange any A team tours with Zimbabwe, Ireland, Afghanistan? Please! Not only that they have no focus on our U-19 team! These are bloody serious concerns. They play the stupid card like Oh our boys won't improve playing A tour tours with Zimbabwe, Ireland etc, utter nonsense.

Playing regular matches does a lot of good, sitting out doesn't. Even when there is no international fixtures , it is the duty of the board to arrange academy and A team tours to test the bench strength. Zimbabwe played back to back series in recent times. Though they lost the previous ones, this time they have taken the series from Sri Lanka.
