Click here for a report in Bengali

Scroll down to the 2nd news there.

Apperently, on the first day they discussed on the tax exemption issue for Champions Trophy in India, Kenian cricket and the format for the next champions trophy.

May be ours is on their tomorrow's agenda.

Seems like not such bad things happend against bBD cricket team. Although... I felt bad to know that Keneya will be stripped off their ODI Membership. Its definitely not good for cricket and kind of path showing future stipping action. BTW.. is the meeting is finished yet or any more agenda is still left?

What they are doin to Kenya is funny. Kenya will not have ODI status, but when they play any test nation, it will count as ODI. Also, if they play any of the top six Associate nation, it will also count as ODI. So, how is it not a ODI statue???

ICC is reminding me of Clinton (... depends on your definition of...)

well.. Keneya will not hold ODI Member status. I guess, its something to do with the revenue, income and fund shared by the ODI member countries and Keneya will not have any share of that. This is really ridiculas. Also.. as the system is abolished.. they are also not entitled to have alteast some fixed ODI fixtures in year. That is kinda bad for keneya as.. they have to wait for the mercy of other test playing countries in order to play an ODI. This is all so bad for Keneya Cricket.

Lady Luck smiled for BD cricket.

I was defintely relieved by the fact that.. ICC meeting raised the points for changes keeping in mind some really Important Agendas, which defintely gave BD cricket some breathing space. Some Important agendas are:

Queted: source: ICC Official Website (http://www.icc-cricket.com)
"
The structure of the international calendar six year options to be examined

The Board debated alternatives to the current five year international playing calendar that requires each country to play each other country once at home and once away during this period in a minimum of two Test matches and three ODI's in each series.

Options examined covered 4, 5 and 6 years.

The Board rejected any proposal to reduce the cycle length and has asked ICC management to investigate the practicalities and implications of moving to a 6 year international playing calendar.

The key principles that the Board has instructed management to take into account in developing this report include:

* That no country would lose its Test status;
* That any calendar must be able to accommodate the ICC events (World Cups, Champions Trophies and Super Series);
* That all Test countries would be entitled to have a minimum of two Tests and three ODI matches scheduled against each other Test playing country on a minimum of once at home and once away during the course of this 6 year cycle;
* That any calendar must accommodate Asian Cricket Council events including the Asia Cup and the Asian Test Championship; and
* That the calendar must accommodate those series that are played on a shorter schedule than the six year cycle such as Australia v England, India v Pakistan and England v the West Indies.

This report, including a draft 6 year program, will be developed over the coming months and be presented to the Board for further consideration.
"

So.. i guess... atleast till next meeting.. we dont need to worry much if our guys do well in games and also.. this gurantees some regular tests and ODI for BD.

Good luck BD cricket.

Another highlight of the executive meeting is the extension of Ehsan Mani's term of office for an additional 12 months. The decision might be a sweet blessing for BD cricket.

So they did extend the President's reign to three years.

This is a very good decision that the ICC have made. I am indeed relieved. Any kind of cut down on the number of tours would not only hamper our or the Zims' development, but also the development of cricket as a whole.

Btw - I don't support what they did to Kenya; and I don't support the decision of counting the matches they play with the associates as ODI's --> either give the associates ODI status or don't count their matches as official at all.

As an alternative, they could probably have postponed international matches featuring Kenya until their board and cricketers figure out solutions to their problems - this would create some pressure on the Kenyan authorities to resolve the issues that have held them back from performing well over the last couple of years.

The Board agreed to recommend to the Annual Conference 2005 that the current membership sub-category of "ODI Member" be abolished with effect from January 2006 as it was no longer relevant.

If accepted this would see the sole member in this category, Kenya, resume the position of an Associate Member of the ICC.
So Kenya has to play ICC trophy from now on if the recommendation is accepted?

Yes that is the bit I am most interested in.

This is completely outrageous for the ICC to reduce Kenya's ODI membership.

I am not a big fan of Kenya, because firstly they were once our rival and taking off this ODI membership off them means they will be lagging too far behind Bangladesh (which would have otherwise made me happy - because I am jealous of Kenya for the tremendous successes over the years), but even such a jealous fan as myself, I have to disagree with their decision. (And secondly, Kenya have managed to create so many Indian fans over the years and we couldn't)

They're living me no choice but to totally disagree with this decision. If they really implement this, how will the other major ICC Associate nations take this? It will simply 'demoralize' them.

I want to hear some of our Scottsh/Irish (or other Associate member) fans' views on this.

It must be demoralizing for the other nations. i mean, it serves no purpose - it will probably have the same effect on the other associates as would a cut down on test status of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. it's just not right. After all, they played in the WC semi finals once. the least the icc could do was give the board a last chance to resolve its issues. ektu threat marlei dekhten kemne baagh bilai howe jaay.

Why demoralise?

From Scotland's perspective some of our matches will get ODI status as will Kenya's if these teams are ranked in the top six associates.

At first sight this looks ok for Scotland. Frankly the top associates are quite evenly matched and one stretching ahead of the pack to claim the 'next one ODI' spot was going to take some time and was not certain to happen at all. We would be up for taking a formal tilt at a test side and would have welcomed ODI status for our games against Bangladesh.

I guess so... as they are no more ICC ODI Member. As far as i Know.. only ODI full member can directly play in the World cup. This is really demoralizing for Keneya Cricket.

Well I wouldn't count Scotland in the pool of associates to get discouraged by this move. Scotland's ODI status IMO is around the corner, and they should get it irrespective of what's happening in Kenya. I was referring to other nations to whom Kenya is more of an example than an opponent you know you can beat any day but aren't given the opportunity to

I think taking away ODI status of Kenya could be a penalty of their internal problem.
May be it's also a strong signal to all associate members to maintain good cricket discipline.
Once Kenya overcome their problem, they will get their ODI status like as other associate member.
And I don't think it has any relation with cut down test status of Bangladesh and Zimbabwe,
because they has recommended "That no country would lose its Test status".

If approved, doesn't look like they have any plan to bring back category of "ODI Member" even Kenya overcome their problem

# That no country would lose its Test status;
# That any calendar must be able to accommodate the ICC events (World Cups, Champions Trophies and Super Series);
# That all Test countries would be entitled to have a minimum of two Tests and three ODI matches scheduled against each other Test-playing country on a minimum of once at home and once away during the course of this six-year cycle;

# That the calendar must accommodate those series that are played on a shorter schedule than the six-year cycle such as Australia v England, India v Pakistan and England v West Indies.

Good news - see the bold sections. This implies the farcical proposal of playing home only did not make it. We may have a reduced shcedule but not limited to home only. I suspect the Zim rebels opting back in helped in this decision.

Shame about Kenya. More due to administrative shenanigans and problems than due to performance,

Yeah, that might be the case. Also our credible showings in the last few months must have played a huge part to silence a few critics.

Kenya has no one to blame but themselves.
