Default 16 Teams for World Cup 2007

It now seems that 16 teams would be seen in the world cup 2007 in west indies.

Does anyone know the format ? Will there be 4 teams in each pool and 4 pools ? or will there be 8 teams in each pool and 2 pools ?

Will BD have to play in the ICC Trophy in 2005 to qualify or will we qualify directly ?

BD doesn't play in the ICC trophy anymore since gaining test status - the ICC trophy is for associates. BD qualifies directly for the world cup.

I read it somewhere that BD would be found playing the ICC Trophy 2005. If it doesn't happen, we qualify directly but I don't think we would qualify directly, after our performance in the 2003 WC, We would be asked to play the ICC Trophy 2005. I am sure we would win it then.

Shahid, don't read the stereotyped Indian magazines to know about Bangladesh.

Read the Bangladeshi magazines or websites to know any news of Bangladesh.

fwullah, can you give me some websites of Bangladeshi newspapers. I know only 2 of them, Daily Star(www.dailystarnews.com) and Prothom-Alo(www.prothom-alo.com).

I read it in some Indian newspaper that BD will be asked to play the ICC Trphy 2005 to qualift for 2007 World Cup. If at all that happens, We should win the ICC Trophy, I think.

You can add www.bangladesherkhela.com which is not a newspaper site, but its the only Bangladeshi daily online sports news site.

I think that BD will have to play in the ICC Trophy 2005. Even our Indian friend, Amit once posted something like this-

Quote:
but this loss to canada might make BD lose test & ODI status and they would be found playing the ICC Trophy 2005.
.

Now, will we win this ICC Trophy 2005 or atleast qualify for world cup 2007, what do you think ? I think that we will win the ICC Trophy 2005.

Default Shahid .. :)

Who is Amit ? He is not ICC, the last time I checked, he is just a regular guy like you and me.

You said that BD will beat India and SA, did it happen ? NO
Amit wishes that BD will be sent back back to ICC trophy. Will they ? Well, I sure won't give his idea any credibility.

You have to always rely on credible sources.




That aside, if we do get to play ICC Trophy - i EXPECT A final between BD and Kenya - no less.

I think that we should play more matches against non-test and "a" teams and also lose our test status for 2 years.

I do think that we should lose test status. There is no point playing against vastly strong teams always. You can see our results after getting test status. Losing test status will give us a lot of chance to play against non-test and "a" teams and also when we reenter the test arena after 2 years, we will start winning each and every test.

Look...I can guarantee that absolutely nobody on this board supports the idea that we should lose the test status. It is ridiculous. Do you get it?

Default Shahid you are being brainwashed!

Shahid, come to Bangladesh and live in Bangladesh permanently. Your staying in India is inlfluencing your mentality.

You are talking like an Indian even if you would not admit it.

Its sort of like you are being brainwashed. Do you know what brainwashing really means? It means that you have certain beliefs about certain things and beliefs are not variable - they are constant - sometimes forever.
