View Full Version : Check out the new BC section! History of Bangladesh Cricket is online

The section on the history of Bangladesh cricket is now online:


You can also access it from the top menu.

If you have any historical anecdotes, player profiles of historical BD players, match reports, scorecards, etc. or any kind of idea to improve the section, contribute them here. Remember, we are looking for somewhat older content, i.e. preferably anything before 1997.

During the 70s or early 80s two teams from India consisting of former test players such as Ajid Wadeker visited BD. I think one of them was Hydrabad Blues (?). At that time it was touted as big deal. Any comments?

:fanflag::fanflag: I remember watching MCC vs BD, srilanka vs BD, part of hydrabad blues vs BD and Pakistan(may have been karachi blues??) vs BD (in ctg). We got the autograph from javed miandad at that time. Dhaka test was posponed. Crowd used to love Yosuf babu at the time for his glorious shots

I suggest including a link to pictures - like that of Nehal Hasnain's pictures, or the first unofficial tests of Bangladesh etc. (I got those pictures from this forum).
