Default Volcanic ash cloud threatens T20 travel plans

The volcanic ash cloud which continues to close UK and much of European airspace is threatening to have a major impact on the World Twenty20 in West Indies because London is a transit point for many teams through to the Caribbean.

Ireland and Zimbabwe are already located in the region, but Afghanistan's journey has been disrupted and the longer the restrictions are in place the greater the chance of chaos to the travel plans of the other competing nations.

Robert Bryan, the tournament director, said he still expected Afghanistan to arrive in the next few days despite the disruption. "We expect that Afghanistan will arrive here, notwithstanding the volcano dust in Europe, over this weekend."

England could be the most severely impacted side. An ECB spokesman told Cricinfo they are monitoring the situation and will make a decision in a few days time as to the arrangements for the team - who are due to leave next weekend - although there seem precious few alternatives with the nearby European airports such as Paris and Frankfurt also closed. The other issue is that a number of players are currently in India at the IPL and won't be able to return to the UK until the airspace is reopened.

India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh are teams who will be likely to travel through London to West Indies next week, but the latest reports suggest the skies won't clear for at least a couple more days. One option for them could be to fly via the Middle East and then the United States so that they skirt the problem areas in Europe.

Australia and New Zealand will probably be able to avoid the problems by flying via the United States if the issue persists, while South Africa may also be able to use the US or fly direct to the Caribbean.

The advance team from ICC were forced to change their travel plans to West Indies this weekend, while ICC President David Morgan and ECB chairman Giles Clarke will take part in the board meeting via video conference having been unable to travel to Dubai from London.

Tino Best, who has signed as an overseas player with Yorkshire, could have his debut delayed as he is unable to fly from the Caribbean to England. UK airspace is closed until at least 0100BST (0000GMT) on Monday.

Ash has always been a trouble. I wont be surprised if they postpone T20 WC for later. Even though all airport reopens from tomorrow, to bring back normality will take weeks.

Even when Ash gets kicked out his name somehow surfaces in the news.

Ash was hardly "volcanic" for the Dynamites! However, his performance suggests that he continues threaten our chances to win in the T20I WC and all other tournaments in all forms of cricket. We may even lose to Iceland in Danguli if he plays for us.

We can have other route. Is there a single route to travel West Indies?

টিভি নাটকে আশরাফুল-মাশরাফি0% গড় রেটিং: রেটিং :

আনন্দ প্রতিদিন প্রতিবেদক
ক্রিকেটার মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল ও মাশরাফি মর্তুজা বিজ্ঞাপনচিত্রের মডেল হয়েছেন। এবার নাটকে অভিনয় করবেন বাংলাদেশ দলের সাবেক এ দুই অধিনায়ক। দেশ টিভির নিজস্ব প্রযোজনায় নির্মাণাধীন একঘণ্টা ব্যাপ্তির একটি বিশেষ নাটকে দেখা যাবে তাদের। 'টি-টোয়েন্টি' নামের নাটকটির গল্পে মহলল্গায় একটি মেয়ে ক্রিকেট খেলা দারুণ পছন্দ করে। ওই এলাকার একটি বাড়িতে থাকেন আশরাফুল। ক্রিকেটের নানা খবরের জন্য মেয়েটি তার সঙ্গে সাক্ষাৎ করে। একপর্যায়ে তাদের মধ্যে মন দেওয়া-নেওয়ার সম্পর্ক গড়ে ওঠে। আগামীকাল থেকে ঢাকার বিভিন্ন স্থানে নাটকটির চিত্রায়ন হবে বলে জানা গেছে। এখানে আশরাফুলের বিপরীতে অভিনয় করবেন প্রভা। আর মাশরাফিকে দেখা যাবে একটি বিশেষ চরিত্রে।

আমি মনে হয় পত্রিকায় পড়েছিলাম বাংলাদেশের শুধু ফ্লাইট প্ল্যান বদল করতে হবে।
কপাল এতো ভালো না যে সাম্ভাব্য বিড়ম্বনা থেকে আমরা সহসাই মুক্তি পাবো।

They will figure out a way around it. The international air system is far too efficient to let bad weather hamper travel. If that was the case, airlines would be out of business.

Dont worry, they will get there.

In other news, bored bangalis making frivolous threads about no nothings

Please, exercise some judgement.

BBC news last night said that there will be limited resumption of air travel from today, because the volcanic ashes is not that high now, and very soon lava will start flowing, this is what the volcanologists think will happen.
Anyhow, the AFghan warm up game against Trinidad has been cancelled because the team is stuck in Dubai and cannot get to the WI in time for the 27th, so think, maybe BD may be stuck too. All the Asian teams have to fly through London, it is chaos at the moment, London is hoping that by Thursday, if the volcano subsides, then flights will be back to normal.
