View Full Version : Poor Coverage in Media

Bangladesh U19 team is in Test battle against England U19. Bd lost their 1st test and in 2nd test they are in back foot now. But young tigers are displaying their positive attitude so far and today’s their mission should be to keeping head down and frustrate the young English bowler.

Mentionable thing is coverage this U19 team tour is very thin in the media. There is no news in electronics media; print media are publishing some data from Internet in tablet form.

Cricket should not be based on National team only. Entire cricket activities should be focused in mass media for popularity of Cricket itself not only Test and ODI otherwise infrastructure of the cricket in Bd would be weakened. And strong Cricket infrastructure is prime condition of showing the performance of new blood.

BCB should be more active to provide the information in the media. BCB could get the information at very early and accurately and their efforts would be more effective.

Agree 100%.

The way our U-19 Team is playing in general, there is lots of interest about this team within BD cricket fan community. The coach is doing his best to update us with his unofficial team report (which he is doing voluntarily and we really appreciate that).

I wish BCB do their part; which should be part of their job responsibility: to promote the team (national and all the age group teams), update information asap and accurately to the current and future cricket fan community.
