Mahbub Anam already said BCB is thinking to organize a Tri-nations involving Zim and India in next January. Zim's tour of NZ in December is pretty much got cancelled for political reasons. They will be dying for some ODIs this winter. So, it won't be hard to convince them to come here again.

But, even though India still owe us a tour, they may not be interested to squeeze in another ODI series in their busy winter. On the otherhand, WI has no series after their tour of Australia in November, until next April.

On a side note, we also need to make deals for our A-team. African countris like ZIM, Namibia, Uganda and Kenya should be perfect places for visiting this winter. Also need to keep looking for entries in domestic leagues like Busta Cup (WI), Duleep Trophy (IND), and Patrons Trophy (Pak).

BD-WI-ZIM Tri-nations Series is a very good idea ahead of Asia cup and Australia's tour of Bangladesh. But I was just wondering where they will play the tourney? In Mirpur Cricket Stadium? Ideally I would like BD players to play few matches there before they encounter any foreign team on that pitch to take full advantage of home condition.

After Bangladesh A tour of England BCB should arrange another foreign tour for them before NCL kicks off in the winter. But I categorically detest the idea of arranging A-team tour against associate nation teams. It would serve no purpose at all in terms of quality of cricket they'll get to play and professional approach towards various aspects of match situation.

Another A team tour in West Indies in near future or sending a BCB XI in their regional Busta Cup tounament before WC 2007 would do world of good for our players.
