we won't learn slower, because we can't learn anything by playing with weaker teams

Well this is the info we have on this 'proposed' system:

"The proposals that Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, the two weakest Test-playing nations, should play less cricket and mostly at home are likely to be agreed when the ICC's executive board meet in Delhi next month."

Where does it say we will only be playing against weaker teams? It says that we will be playing LESS games. How does that hinder our progress, considering that SL (since we like to compare ourselves to them) didn't have such a hectic schedule to begin with either?

And to those who think if we play against weak teams we won't learn anything - Did we learn more from the English visitors or the Zimbo visitors?

Perhaps this is what worries you lot?

"A two-tier system could allow the ICC gradually to bring other countries, such as Kenya and Holland, into Test cricket."

*sigh* Surely, it would be good if more countries can be Test teams!

o.k. it seems that ICC will go for the 2-tier system mainly due to financial benifits of the rest 8 countries. but from my pov this system will not alone going to raise the standard of the game in bd or in zim. do you know which steps - such as pressing the rest icc 8 members by order to send frequently their a-teams, speacialist bowling, batting coaches, cricket management consultants to improve our over all structures and invite our local teams to take part in their domestic first class competitions - else will be taken by the mighty icc to help us to improve our quality ? if icc has no such plan I mentioned, they can forget to get the asking result to the goal to make cricket a global game.
tschuss!

I just contributed the second vote for 'Help'. I believe reducing the frequency of Test matches is good for Bangladesh cricket. We are making it too much of a matter of pride that ICC is imposing it only on us, while ignoring that it might actually be good for us.


Edit : Removed the second paragraph. On second thoughts, I can't agree with some of the things that I just wrote ! But 'Help' stays.

I want to add the following:

1. We should arrange more away matches with Zim, as it will not be restricted and their pitches are also hard and bouncy ones.
2. We should arrange "Unofficial Test" matches with the 1st tier teams, which was a practice in early days.
3. We should take part as BCB team in tournaments like Pura Cup, Duleep trophy and so on.
4. We should arrange tours to England, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand to play with the top domestic cricket teams of those countries. I mentioned these countries, because their conditions are quite different then ours.
5. We have to improve our ODI performance sharply, on which there is no restrictions imposed, and this will show the nature of our improvement.
6. While going for "Away" ODI tours, we should include some 4 day matches with the top local teams and "A" Teams of those countries.
