Forget the reports, Brad Hodge said it himself during a live interview. He said, obviously hearing that they were out, was reason enough for him to go home, but he was in an even bigger hurry, because his son was very ill.

But when told that they were back in AGAIN, he canceled his flight.

Wall Street Journals :

Bangladesh T20 League Falls Short in Its Initial Test
Administrative Chaos, Corruption Fears Add to Cricket Circuit's Teething Problems

Quote:
The top performers in the final, for instance, were three Pakistanis and an Australian, only one of them of recent international vintage. By contrast, the stars of last year's IPL final between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore were three highly regarded current internationals, two homegrown and one Australian.
Quote:
Neither have the administrators covered themselves in glory. Players who were supposed to have been paid the majority of their fee by now have received little or nothing so far, prompting Bangladesh and Rajshahi captain Mushfiqur Rahim to speak out on the matter, along with an English players' union that represents a number of players affected.

Then there was the farce of semifinal qualification

Is there any made up fact mentioned in Wall Street Journal ?

Why do we always want to hide the truth?

When will we come out of "Dama Chapa" life style ?

1. Why is the reporter comparing IPL-4 with BPL 1? IPL1 had so many issues.
2. How many international players IPL teams play in a game compared to BPL? They play 7 indian players but still over-seas players dominate in bowling and batting.
3. How many players except Mushfique complained about payments? Even Brad Hodge said most of the players were paid over 50%. Some 20-30 percents. It's a short tournament and it takes a bit of time paying out all the money.

Except that Semifinal drama, I don't see any issues with BPL.

I can't believe how much negative press the BPL is getting. There were some administrative mishaps - but which T20 league has not suffered these problems? The IPL once had to be moved entirely to South Africa and subsequently there was the Lalit Modi-Shashi Tharoor-Kochi Tuskers fiasco! And they were handling far greater sums of money than our tournament organizers and franchise owners were.

There were whispers about match fixing in the BPL. But there's whispers about match fixing wherever sports players go these days. Look at England's county scene for the most recent perpetrators, for instance. At least our anti-corruption team and players were vigilant enough to report any suspicious activity.

And about the quality of domestic cricketers - where was the man of the series from? who hit the winning runs in the tournament? who had the most wickets in the tournament? i think that's pretty impressive considering the opportunities that domestic players got in this tournament. Unlike the IPL, foreign players and paid more in this league than domestic ones. And even all that aside, I think the BPL threw up quite a few compelling matches and the semi final contestants were not decided till the end. I was pleased as a Bangladeshi spectator.

I am proud at what BPL has done....it has not only shown the quality in our domestic players, but has also proved it to the rest of the cricketing world that we can also arrange a t20 league and make it a success.

Yes, it's true there were mishaps, but then again judging it as the first ever tournament for Bangladesh it was quite well executed. Once again congratulations to DG and all the other semi-finalists.

GO BPL! GO BANGLADESH

Source?? I wonder if this has to do with the allegations of corruption and Semi final problems...

Never mind found it. FB/DB means facebook / Dhaka gladiators . I am getting old for these I guess. I have been hearing from some people that BD was confirmed participation in this CL T20, pity they will not be there.

Azhar Mahmood will be playing for his NZ team. Naved will play for his BigBash team.

5 foreign players in BPL?? 4 in IPL itself is too much, 5 is a strong no no. I doubt IPL owners will be happy with that. Most likely BPL is going to go to 4 foreign players next year. Sahara wanted 5 foreign players in Pune team and other owners refused that. Highly unlikely BD will be allowed to field 5 players. Even without that how does 5 foriegn players help local Bangladesh cricketers??

Another area of problem I see in the future is 5 Pak players. Given India-Pak relation ship is very rocky this might affect future BD participation as well.

Unlikely. His preference would be
1. Kings (will have the first right to chose him and will for sure outpay the other two teams).
2. Kent
3. NZ team

Naved, Stevens, Ajmal, Awais Zia, Afridi, Nazir, karveeze will play for DG for sure. The only doubt lays on Mahmood and its highly unlikely Kings will make it so for me, the only team that gets in the way is his country team where he is originally from. DG will pay him more than NZ team so i dont see them stand in the way. But why are we talking about this? Its highly unlikely that this decision of no BPL team is gonna change this year.

For me , Nazir-Afridi-Azmal-Naved combo works fine.

donno but IMO thats the sole reason Dhaka was not aloud in clt20 this year..if dhaka was aloud dhaka's team would have been like this

Nazir
Nazimuddin
Ashraful
Mahmood/Stivens
Afridi
Anamul
Dhiman
Masrafee
rana Naved
Sunny
Ajmal

this team would have been a very good team given its pak power and some recognized BD players in the mix...at least this team is better then the NZ teams that have been participating in the clt20

This is not a bad piece, but it's not entirely fair.

The writer is of course right to point out that not enough unknown local batsmen contributed significantly to the BPL. However, although not among the top 10 or 20 run-scorers, Mominul Haque, Anamul Haque and to a lesser extent Mizanur Rahman played some promising knocks in a competition dominated by the big names (http://digicricket.marssil.com/match...ent.aspx?id=15)

And it is unfair bordering on the disingenuous for the writer to say on the one hand that unknown local players achieved nothing and then dismiss the BD bowlers who have performed well because they are left arm spinners!

Five of the top 10 bowlers in the BPL are locals. Of those Elias Sunny (the joint highest wicket taker with Mohammed Sami) is just starting his international career, Enamul is maturing after a period in the wilderness and Arafat Sunny is a virtual unknown. Moreover, if we extend the list of bowlers to the top 15, Saqlain Sajib (a local unknown) and Suhrawardi Shuvo also make the list.

In terms of batting experienced BD players have underperformed so it seems harsh to expect virtual unknowns to succeed. Nonetheless, it is clears foreigners outshone the locals.

However, as far as the bowling goes BD players more than held their own and a few newbies made an impact too. It is churlish to gloss over this achievement just because they are spinners....
