I thought I heard a rumour last year that we would be featuring in a One Day Triangular possibly involving Sri Lanka in India during our scheduled tour of India in April.

But ofcourse, our tour to India has been cancelled for now, but Sri Lanka is going to India anyways.

Is this just our bad luck or does our cricket board have bad relations with the Indian cricket board?

I think its bit of both. For some time now the indian authorities haven't very cooperative.

Indian cricket authorities are just not friendly cooperative. Always shows so many proud and vanity. They think of themself Lord-Of-The-[].
Remember what drama they made before coming to BD last year? And they went back with shame (loosing to us in ODI).:cool:

Bangladesh has toured Srilanka, Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, England(next month), South Africa, Zimbabwe but not India for a test match! And guess what? India is our neighbor and we played our 1st test against them.

I think this is because of India's board who wants stronger team for getting more money from sponsers. :duh:
