Thumbs up BCB Challenge Cup

Tigers to start training for WI series on September 8

The Bangladesh Cricket Board, heavily criticised for failing to provide the national players enough practice hours before the calamitous Zimbabwe tour, has decided to start the training camp on September 8, a month before the Tigers play the next series.

Bangladesh will face West Indies in October to defend their Test and one-day series they won in 2009.

The Tigers have already surrendered the other Test series that belonged to them when they were beaten by Zimbabwe by 130 runs on the just-concluded tour.

The BCB was widely criticised for not being able to give enough opportunities to the players to train before the Zimbabwe tour. They were also unable to convince South Africa for a brief tour and decided against paying an additional $30,000 demanded by Zimbabwe for the team’s arrival in Harare two days earlier.

‘We don’t want to leave any stone unturned

regarding preparation for the West Indies series,’ Sabbir Khan, cricket

operation manager of the BCB, told New Age on Sunday.

‘The camp will start shortly after the Eid vacation on September 8 and it will be followed by the BCB Challenge Cup, a one-day tournament, to be contested by the national team, the Bangladesh A team and the GP-BCB Academy side from September 14-23,’ said Sabbir.

‘This will provide the players of the national team with an opportunity to play five one-day practice matches. In between we will also hold an the skills training camp so that the players can make maximum preparations,’ he added.

‘Apart from that we have asked coach Stuart Law to submit his plans for the team so that we can also arrange one or two four-day games before the series,’ said Sabbir.

Skipper Sakib al Hasan is likely to miss a large chunk of the preparation camp as he is expected to play for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament from September 23 to October 9.

As there is no flight from Bulawayo due to the pilots’ strike, the Bangladesh team is expected to return home via Harare on August 24 at 3:00am without their foreign coaching staff who will be off on holiday.

Coach Stuart Law and fielding coach Jason Swift will go back to Manchester while conditioning trainer Grant Luden will return to South Africa where he is expecting to get married.

Physio Bibhav Singh will also go to South Africa. All members of the coaching staff are expected to return before the training camp starts.

This is a great step BCB is taking here. It gives all the players a chance to showcase their skills and push each other for spots on the team. Hope coach Law also brings up some players if he feels they're ready. Looks like we'll be more prepared for the WI tour.

Finally! This is something that India has done on a few occasions in the past as part of its preparation for international series. We should do it every year.

I mean the Challenge Cup should be a regular fixture. Sure, we need practice matches before every series, but they need not be official and a formal tournament may not be financially feasible assuming that there's enough prize money thrown into such a fixture. I'm guessing that isn't the case here though.

my vote is for every series...BCB should market this. With the top three levels of cricket, this represents the best players in the country. I think they should throw the U-19 team in there and make it a quadrangular. U19, A team, Academy all play less than they should. It also gives the coaches and selectors a chance to see all of the top 50 players in the land in a context as good as you can get it.

i'm sure sponsors can be found out and the games televised locally.

i'd rather have a tournament of 4 day games instead of 5 relatively meaningless 50-over affairs.

The A team won't be available in november because they have a series against the WI A and in january they play the England Lions. So they won't be available all the time. But whenever they do get opportunities, they should play each other whenever all the teams are free.

I am with ATMR this should be a regular fixture in September. And should be televised as this will put some added pressure on players so they will play proper cricket not picnic cricket if you know what I mean.

Bravo BCB. Calling LBW...

can't really observe if you have to submit plans.. can you?!!

It's a good initiative but we should take place this type of tournament before Zimbabwe tour rather than play football in sea beach where our players got injured. It would be better to schedule four day matches where every teams play against each other and finally take place a final. This is how it will be a competative tournament and our player can prepare for Test matches.

It's an excellent initiative and I hope it happens before every series...with proper sponsors and also telecasted on national channels....this will actuallly give an opportunity to ALL the players to compete and prove themselves and who knows we might get more players like Shakib Al Hasan or even better....a pacer cum batsmen allrounder.....hope this is executed well....

I would have been happier if Mash got better before the WI series....then with Rubel/Shafiul/Mash....it would have been great!!

playing soccer or swimming or whatever else are important activities in our preparation. what would you rather have. our players sitting and collecting bhuris because they are all too soft. our players just need to play and train with more skill to avoid injuries. unfortunately, they grow up learning bad habits or maybe we Bangladeshis are just softees.

alaudin babu is our greatest hope of a pacer allrounder but we need to nurture him for a couple more years to prepare him.
