I would say a very short sighted decision, right now our team is in decent test form. And if you judge a team by their records, New Zealand should be our closest competitors in tests. I seriously think we would have won/drew at least one game against NZ.
But then again, this is going to be beneficiary for the WC, no arguing. The more games we play the better it should be. Target should be to win the series.

I'm also disappointed for Tamim's 1000 but for the Team's sake we have to accepte it with a smile.
Too much of Test crickt in a yr is not good.

can we appoint a good bowling coach for atleast the next 2 months to see what we get in this 5ODI series.

Few things to clarify to make some feel good, if I could:

1. We have not cancelled the Tests, we have suspended the Tests for a year, which will be played after the WC in 2011.

2. This decision is wise, which will give more opportunity for our restive boys to flourish and retain their performance in ODIs for upcomng WC.

3. This decision was not made based on our recent bad performance to withdraw from Test format, this is just a pragmatic decision to do better in the WC.

BCB is yet to make any decisions.
World cup looming that would be the best decision for both nations. We love to dramatize info, then sugar coat it with a spin.

The title needs to be changed because of no official press release. Misleading to say the least.

This is really not that big of a deal in my opinion..the tests are postponed not cancelled..we really need to start winning games in ODIs before we lead up to the world cup and this year we have just won 2 games which is really alarming going in to probably our most important ever world cup..New Zealand will also offer a tough challenge at our home..I know it would be nice to see us playing Test matches but lets worry about ODIs now and have our boys focused on JUST ODIs..also we end up winning the deal actually..we get to play 5 ODIs and 2 Tests rather then 3 ODIs and 2 Tests..I mean the tests are later but playing so many matches against NZ will be great..

Postpone means cancelled in BCB terms. Remember that 5-0 PAK ODI series which was postponed?

(I am removing my earlier post, which assumed a cancellation/postponement instead of rescheduling/replacement) Postponement of tests with the addition of 2 ODIs is fine. Playing against NZ should be good for both the teams. It should toughen us to avoid shame against the associates and may provide a chance to win against any of the four G8 teams. That almost means proceeding to the second round. So, good move!

sounds like the decision was more or less mutual from the get go with the Kiwis. NZ had stayed away from test cricket for a long time leading to the 2007 WC and they made it to the Semi's as a strong contender (as much as you could have been minus the Australia factor).

I'm not sure what this means for us in the long haul but if we going to have the same 15 represent in all formats regardless of their skills and strengths then its a good one leading up to the World Cup. We as hosts should aim no lower than the quarterfinals. Beating IRE, NED and WI MUST be considered MANDATORY and another steal against ENG, IND or SA would be a bonus.

Hopefully the NZ and subsequent WI and ZIM matches will not be used for stats padding and blocking practice but for winning practice and playing as a team to feed off of each others' strengths.

Its ok in terms of world cup preparation but after the world cup we should not play test for 1 years and try to develop our game to play more first class matches with first-class teams then go back to test cricket again its for the best for BD cricket team ,BD plays 7 test in a year and looses 4 matches by INNINGS which show how poor we are and we haven't developed our cricket yet.
The facts i am giving are realistic , WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING RIGHT NOW .

A break from test cricket will not do us any good. India and England have been form teams in this year. We did not do horriblly bad against them. In fact, we had moments to capitalize on, which we failed. Those mistakes can be corrected only by playing, not by taking a break.

If we do well in the World Cup the decision will be jusitifed but I'm not too sure. Maybe part of the reason was due to complaints of player tiredness/burnout??

We should have played couple of Tests. WC is not for another 6 months. Now that we are getting better in Test. I am pretty sure we could have easily beaten the Kiwis. Lucky them!!

Bangladesh not playing test match for 1 year means going 1 year backwards .

i think we should have 7 day series

instead of 10 day test--- we could easily get 5 ODI or 4 ODi

and pre scheduled 3 ODI

why BCCB is losing the opportunity?

NZ is very strong ODI team. So a 5 match ODI involving them is not too shabby.

Only if Shakib plays well. But he is playing non-stop cricket for last 1 and half year. He needs a good rest after he returns from county cricket.

Besides we had only 8 ODI games scheduled (3 vs NZ and 5 vs Zimb) before the WC which is not enough as it is still 6 months away.

Where are the facts? We need to really do something; not stop playing; that would mean doing nothing. So lets do other things related to improvement, you cannot improve in anything by not doing it.

Show someone who has improved in test cricket by not playing. That would have been a fact.

Agree, if they were so concerned, they should've avoided the associate series/postponed the ODI series vs England. Now this was one good opportunity to play competitive cricket against NZ, and Tamim would've had his chance to get the 1000 runs in this calender year too. Darn
