Default Bangladesh to replace Zimbabwe for England tour?

I think Zimbabwe tour just got cancelled

Quote:
ENGLAND are set pay Zimbabwe compensation for scrapping a scheduled one-day series at the start of summer 2009.

Zimbabwe, who currently do not have Test status, were due here under the ICC rota for a two-Test series and minimum of three one-day matches.

But English cricket chiefs want to cash in with seven Tests in the Ashes year and may now kick off the summer by facing Bangladesh instead.

England also host the Twenty20 World Cup ahead of a five-match campaign against Australia.

Rules state failure to fulfil a one-day international will cost £75,000.

Quote:
The ECB is struggling to attract Pakistan, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka here for a mere two-Test visit. With the ICC World Twenty20 tournament being held here later in 2009, it would disrupt tourists' preparations for that. Only if the ECB can clear its fixture list to lure them with a five-match ODI series would one of those nations consider coming - but then the reciprocal-tours arrangements with those countries would place strain on the 2012 calendar, when England are due to tour Zimbabwe.

Playing England in May is Hard enough and it's an Ashes year too, So England would want to whip us real bad like last time. But if I'm running the BCB i say Yes, get a chance to play at Lords again and make a few suggestions to the ECB to set up extra 20/20 matches after the Test to get ready for World 20/20's against the counties or even a few with Australia. Or another Natwest Series involving Bangladesh, England and Australia

The Sun report says that the 20-20 is before the Ashes series. So will it be Bangladesh, 20-20, Ashes or 20-20, Bangladesh, Ashes ? The latter looks more logical, in which case the BD matches will be in June.

I am a big NO NO for a series against England in May, this is too early for a cricket season.

Every team is bound to struggle in those conditions. We will be clearly whipped away, a series in July would have been interesting.

But again we do not have choices over our schedule, according to FTP we already have a series against England in May 2010.

Now, is this an additional series or is rescheduled?

The FTP says May

I think it goes like Bangladesh Tests, World 20/20's and Ashes, makes no sense for Bangladesh and England but I think theres 2 squads a 20/20 squad and a Test Squad, Players like Ash and KP can make smooth transitions from Tests to ODI and players like Rajin and Vaughn will be Test Only.

I think we should say Yes too.

Playing in England would also give the players a chance to get thier names heard in the county cricket.

BCB should also try to bargain one more test or couple of extra ODI's in the process, in the name of rescuing ECB.

BCB should grab this opportunity, if it comes along their way.
But then again, in not sure how our own fixture stands at that time around.

IMO, if the series puts too much strain on our own schedule, we should decline the offer as we are touring England in May 2010 anyway.

I agree with cricman, we should take it and ask ECB to arrange few 20/20 or ODI ... perhaps inbetween 1st & 2nd test ... saying we might lose those tests within 2.5 days.

In my opinion , they should not go, but wait for 2010, they have a chance of beating England then, what is the point of travelling all the way there for 2 Tests, no ODIs or 20/20 games.

No reason to turn down the offer if it comes. We need to play as many tests as possible.

I say Bring them on. Agree with Cricman and Miraz Bhai the early English season is too helpful for fast bowlers. But if we have good summer in UK in 2009 it may be different.

I agree. Getting thrashed by a gumbie team like England will lower our boys' confidence. If it was in Bangladesh then no problem. Plus I despise that England place. Roads are skinny and buildings are small. Ugh.

At present, BD's FTP for 2009 stands such:

January 2009
Sri Lanka in Bangladesh
Zimbabwe in Bangladesh (3 ODIs)
Tri-Series in Bangladesh (Ban, SL & Zim)

February 2009
Nothing for BD as yet

March 2009
Nothing for BD as yet

April 2009
West Indies in Bangladesh (2 Tests & 3 ODIs)

May 2009
Zimbabwe in England (2 Tests & 3 ODIs)
Nothing for BD as yet

June 2009
ICC T20 World Championship



July 2009
Bangladesh in Zimbabwe (2 Tests & 3 ODIs)

August 2009
Bangladesh in Zimbabwe (2 Tests & 3 ODIs)

September 2009
Zimbabwe in Bangladesh (3 Tests & 5 ODIs)


October 2009
Zimbabwe in Bangladesh (3 Tests & 5 ODIs)

November 2009
Zimbabwe in Bangladesh

December 2009
India in Bangladesh (2 Tests)





So according to ICC FTP on www.cricinfo.com,

we are set to play Zim in 3 different series in 2009!!
...and they dont even have the test status as upto now.

Is it just me, or can someone tell me why are we playing 5 tests and 11+ ODI's against ONE team in THREE different series' in one year??

So, in all possibilities, we have a series in April against WI and against India in Dec!
....and a bundle of tests and odi's against Zimbabwe in between!
So, i dont think its goin to strain our tour programme to a bit.

Looking at the dismal picture of our FTP, i think BCB should not only grab it, but rather snatch it at any opportunity it gets.

And if we can tour England in May 2010 ( the early conditions everyone is nervous about), what difference does it make in May 2009?

After all, its not anytime soon that we will get a call for a series against the "elite" top 3 or 4 in thier peak season.

Now lets see whether this is all a media fuss or a real thing ....

Early summer will also affect the English batsmen. Shahadat and Co. needs these type of series to boost their average and strike rate. I say take the offer (if given) and run with it.

Take the offer without second thought. We have nothing to loose but everything to gain. We don't have luxury of "choice". Whatever we get our way is a blessing from above.

Take it.

i agree...we don't plat that many tests. only reason it seems like 10 in a year is a lot is cuz we played none in over a year recently.

its owed to us by the big boys so lets take it. SL took our NZ series last year and didn't complain about playing too much cricket.

The math is simple. I agree.

Turning down an offer when we're available only for it being the start of a season is ridiculous. IMO, playing under these conditions is IMPORTANT for our cricket future. If you don't play under these conditions, you won't learn. And if we go on May 2009 as an additional to May 2010, that will be nothing but blessings for our cricket. Simple math.

Even though it seems alot we will only be playing 5 test and 12 ODIs against them. That is if they start playing test by then. The timing is bad and some of the matches are bound to get washed out.

Im sure some amendments will be made in the meantime.

BCB should wake up for their cause.

5 tests and 12 ODIs against the same opponent in 1 calender year is too much, especially when you consider that these matches are spanned across 2½ complete tours. I wouldn't mind a single tour hosted by either us or them, which could have 3 tests and 5 ODIs.
