here is an advice for the administrator. i know alot of you lives in bangladesh. so maybe when you guys have the time you can go to the practice of our cricket team and interview the players and coaches. you can try to get more players and coaches to write columns in this site. better records of the players. graphs of players performance could also b included.
this site is already a great site but there are always rooms for improvement. so i hope you guys will consider my advice.

Thanks a lot for your candid advice. Its something we have been working on. We are currently working on a new design for the website which will shortly be unveiled. It will incorporate many new features, and we will be constantly working to add new ones. In the past we have looked at various ways we could give more coverage to the domestic matches, get better statistics. However almost all of the people running the site live/work/study abroad, unfortunately. They simply volunteer their time out of sheer love for Bangladesh cricket, nothing else, ABSOLUTELY nothing else. So it is rather hard at this time for us to give direct coverage to domestic matches. However, we actually have had one of our moderators visit the HP Squad training sessions at BKSP. The reports for that should be up shortly. As you may already know Coach McInnes contributes to our website regularly. So certainly things are moving in the right direction. We continue to anticipate your patronage, and appreciate your helpul advice. :)

What is the countrywise break up of forummers of this site ? That should be an interesting exercise.

That is not an option that we are looking forward to at the moment. Besides, most cricket loving nations have forums one way or the other.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Most of the forummers are located in N.America followed by Asia, Europe and Australia. That is what I had guessed. Thanks for the information, Rajputro.

Canada and USA have larger amounts than Bangladesh, Australia is high up there too.

I am going to assume that some of the Bangladesh ones probably live abroad and put in BD as location for nostalgic reasons. :)
