Default forgotten kenya

2005 has us playin in january against Zimbabwe, and in april against india. then the summer will have the series in england, as well as maybe asian test championship. then we are free for the next 5 or 6 months. after a 3 month break we should ask the kenyans to come over for a 5 or perhaps 7 match ODI series. they will appreciate it, as they have pretty much been abandoned by the ICC...we should stay with them.

plus it will give us a chance to win our (hopefully 2nd ODI series). our players will be bored otherwise as there isnt anything to do for at least 6 months (until 2006). lets hope the BCB has some brains and listens to me. what do you guys think?

We should use that time to play local cricket, both 3 day and one day matches. we should get ourselves into lots of serious local cricket with lots of money involved for the players and teams.

You can't be more right. But we need to start playing 4 day matchs instead of 3 day, cause we loose most of the test inside 3 day. We need start playing longer innings.

very true...lets play 5 ODIs with kenya, and then have first class 4 day matches with both BD national team. and a BD A team. or with our U-19 team. but our domestic cricket has to start changing as well...i dont think we need the 20-20 thing. our ODI batting if and when it clicks can put up 230 average, with 250 plus scores every once in a while as well. so we do need first class. i am tired of our batsmen getting out after 50 or shortly after 100 in tests.

but we should involve kenya. at least give them a month long tour. we have the rest of the time to play domestic.

and i forgot that sri lanka may come to BD in december of 2005. anyone know when they are coming?

I think allrounder is correct. We should concentrate playing cricket at home and focus on patching the gaps.

Cricket at home will be of utter importance but playing Kenya won't be of less either. And its probably not gonna be a cakewalk. We still have lots of things to give-and-take with them.

Kenyan cricket is in shambles - odumbe has been banned, tikolo and other important players have been sacked. They didn't even make it to the final of the Intercontinental cup (Scotland and Canada played the final) - playing them would be equally as rewarding as playing scotland or canada. We should focus on domestic cricket instead.

Here's the scorecard from the Scotland v Kenya game ..

Well, We can invite them for 3 ODis just before England tour for the shake of their cricket development and BD's preparation for the tour. or simply to improve our ODI win record.

BD rather play against their second tier team...

Kenya still has ODI status, no matter how bad their team is or what politics is going on. I think for the longest time BD was afraid to play them, which is a shame. We should play them at every opportunity, not just to help them but to help ourselves.

well it makes sense too. we need make the win column heavier on our side. Kenya is leading by a huge margin now.

in the same vein, i would like to see some excitement generated by the local scene. We need more people rooting for district and club teams so that the aroma of competitiveness is always present in the players.
