That is an interesting point. We always see players being carried out in a stretcher in football/soccer games. I'm not sure if I have ever seen one on a cricket field.

Poor management by SL cricket. Unbelievable. Who can blame them anyway? They are poor. I hope Bangladesh have better facilities in their fields.

Srilanka is a poor country . Noone thinks about it as yet . When the players can be taken just like that , then they don't need the strecher at all .

Nearly all Sri Lankan economic and social indicators are better than ours. Compared to Bangladesh, Sri Lanka is not poor at all.

what has a stretcher got to do with being a rich or poor country?! Did you know that in terms of literacy and per capita income Sri Lanka is the richest country in South Asia? Do you think BCB can afford a stretcher in in Bangladesh? I hope you realise our per capita income is almost half that of Sri Lanka. Please do your research for you will otherwise keep embarassing yourself and everyone else here. That said, its high time cricket stadia around the world made arrangements for stretchers during match time.

It appears to be purely lack of respect for our players/team.
if it was any other player from a test playing nation, a stretcher would have been sent out without any doubts.

May be I haven't watched enough matches, but I have never seen a stretcher used on a cricket field. A case in point would be the picture in the first post of this thread. I believe that is of the test in Chittagong where Mashrafee broke down for the second time. If it is a matter of respect, then we need to respect our own players first.

stretchers are used in cricket matches if the player concerned is unable to walk off the pitch himself.
in cricket matches, time wasting is a serious matter, so a stretcher is only a last resort.
after seeing the agony that Nazmul was in, i think he could have been afforded a little more dignity instead of being carried off the field like a wounded solder in a battle field.

On the contrary, I think it is always a sign of strength to walk (and not be carried) off the field. Cricket isn't a full contact sport after all.

Another point, Sri Lanka deserves our highest respects. They are a well educated and sophisticated people...characteristics that are evident from the way they have welcomed Bangladesh during this tour. Their players and critics have had plenty of encouraging things about our cricket and have gone into the tournament with nothing less than their strongest team...and that's a show of respect for our team.

Michael Holding injured his hamstring in a one day world series cricket match against England at the MCG in 1987 in what turned out to be his last ODI. He was carried off the field and no stretcher was brought in. One of the carriers was Ian Botham who was just out.

I agree though, stretchers should be provided.

May be stretcher was provided but not take by the BD physio. It happens all the time. If the injured player says that he can walk it off, stretcher will be waved off.

I've seen stretchers used several times, even in Sri Lanka. After Waugh and Gillespie collided in Kandy, Gillespie broke his leg and was carried off on a stretcher. At the 'Gabba when Simon Jones destroyed his knee in the outfield, again stretcher. When Matthew Elliott collided with Mark Waugh mid-pitch....stretcher.

I agree with Zobair. Sri Lanka is not so bad economically that we cannot afford a stretcher. Anyway, I simply don't know why stretchers are not used sometimes. Quite an interesting thing to ponder ! Stretchers were used when Gillespie and Steve Waugh collided in Kandy, badly injuring themselves. Whatever it is, it is not due to lack of resources or lack of respect for the Bangladeshi team. All visiting teams are given right royal treatment here. Most teams have said that the treatment that they had received here was the very best they had received anywhere in the world. It is the same with A teams touring Sri Lanka: they are treated the same way. It is due to traditional Sri Lankan hospitality.

Authorities around the world, including Sri Lanka should look at this situation and take corrective action.

Anyway, members here should not haste to accuse Sri Lanka of lack of respect or resources. That is not the reason.

If one talks to the Bangladeshi players and journalists touring Sri Lanka, the amount of respect we have for the Bangladeshi team will come to light.

bro did u do ur research before making this comment, i am talking bout wealth and not literacy rate, although i know that sri lanka's is better.

bangladesh is a richer country then sri lanka in terms of econimical strenghth thats it.

my facts are from the CIA, world fact book 2005 edition:

GDP - Purchasing power of bangladesh - $275.7 billion (2004 est.)

GDP - Purchasing power of Sri lanka - $80.58 billion (2004 est.)

Budget for Bangladesh
revenues: $5.921 billion
expenditures: $8.262 billion

Budget for sri lanka
revenues: $3.34 billion
expenditures: $4.686 billion

The world rich list is meassured by GDP - Growth Domestic Product, so my only argument for that was in those terms BD is a richer country then sri lanka, im not saying anything against them, im saying that even with a lower economical rate & less people they have a better cricket team. that was my only case.

6ALLTHEWAY! Are you majoring in economics? I hope not! Let me give you an example. Suppose your household makes 200 dollars a month and 20 family members, and suppose your neighboring household makes 100 dollars a month but has only two people. I think you can figure the rest out.
