Ian, the problem with Bangladesh is that there will be a lot of people talking and no body is willing to back it up. I am sure when you went to meet with these so called rich companies in Dhaka, they all were full of advice and vision but no action when it came to lending a monetary helping hand.
Let's just take BC as an example. There are so many well wishers of cricket here but unfortunately you only got donations from 2 members. Unless the rest don't believe in the approach you are taking, I do not see why at least a couple of hundred people should not come forward and open their wallets to you.
If we could have Isam publish a report of this pace bowling academy initiative of yours and also if BC could make a donation of $5000 (that can also be part of that report), it's a win-win situation for both parties.
In Darwin's eyes, Bangladeshi batsmen are still monkeys with cricket bats.
