Default Bangladesh make formal request to Cricket Ireland for a Tour

BCB has made a formal request for a tour to Ireland in July which would have a Four Day Match, 2 ODI's and 1 or 2 T20's

http://www.cricketeurope4.net/DATABA...8/000878.shtml

The Bangladesh Cricket Board have made a formal request to Cricket Ireland to tour the country in July, Setanta Sports can reveal.

Bangladesh are seeking to play a four-day game, two one-day internationals and either one or two Twenty20 internationals in the last two weeks of the month.

If the tour goes ahead it will be the first time that Ireland will play a four-day game against a full Test nation.

However, the plans could yet be scuppered by financial constraints, as Cricket Ireland need to raise between €120,000 and €150,000 in order to cover Bangladesh's costs.

Although the request for the series has come from Bangladesh, the host country is expected to underwrite the tour regarding transport and accommodation costs.

As members of the Future Tours Programme, full Test-playing members receive a grant each year from the International Cricket Council for such costs, of between €5.5 million and €7million. In contrast, as an associate member, Ireland's grant from the ICC is €520,000.

Ireland's budget from the ICC is already committed to the hosting of Afghanistan for a 4-day Intercontinental Cup game and two World Cup qualifiers at the start of July, and a month-long tour by South Africa 'A' in August.

Ireland also host Australia in the RSA Challenge one-day international in Belfast on June 23, but that is expected to be self-funding after Sky Sports agreed to cover the game.

Cricket Ireland told Setanta Sports that they have made a formal request to the ICC for extra funding to host full member tours, and that their application coincided with Bangladesh's realisation that they had no cricket scheduled between May and August.

"We have put a request in with the ICC for Targeted Assistance and Performance Programme Funding (TAPP)," high performance director Richard Holdsworth said.

"The main part of that application has been to increase the numbers of matches with full members.

"CI chief executive Warren Deutrom and myself made that application to the ICC's Financial and Commercial Affairs committee. The idea of it is to bridge the gap between the top six full members, the remaining full members and the top two associates. "

Bangladesh found themselves with no cricket for the summer months after South Africa turned down their proposal to play three ODIs and five Twenty20 matches in May, whilst attempts to tour Pakistan in April were scuppered by security concerns, and it is unlikely that it can be rescheduled at a later date.

"Around that time, Bangladesh got in touch with Warren, and said: 'We would very much like to play Ireland'," Holdsworth continued.

"That is a little change in culture, for full members to be coming to us and asking for games! But it reflects how far Irish cricket has come."

Holdsworth hopes to know next week whether the ICC will provide the additional funding that will allow the series to go ahead.

"We are in constant negotiations with the ICC, and they are huge supporters of everything we do, so we cannot be too pushy. We hope to announce something next week, as time is obviously moving on, and we need to get things in place," he said.

T-20 world cup is in subcontinent. Then why do we need this picnic tour in Europe? (moreover, against a lesser equipped team)

Because our honorable board couldn't manage a series with any test playing nation.. So ekhon tader nai mamar cheye kana mama bhalo type obostha...

I don't mind the tour. It's not a good season to play in our region at that time. Also the boys didn't play any away series for a long time now.. their skills need to be tested in different conditions..

Looks bleak for T20WC with no prep, doesn't it?
Cricket Khora
Maybe next step would be for BCB to play an eliminated IPL team for T20 practice.

I like the fact that BCB is at least trying to organize some form of cricket. remember, Playing in foreign conditions is not always easy by any means. We lost to Ireland before many times in foreign conditions.

They are playing Australia in June, then July with Bangladesh. Lots of prep for WC! Now they got chance to mock ICC using our invitation as if Irish cricket got big!

IMO this invitation should be given before Ireland make there ambitious proposal at mid april to ICC for playing 12-15 ODIs a year within FTP. Then BD invitation could be look like as a helping hand and also help them get the funding from ICC to secure this tour.

I am quite sure this tour will also be cancelled like all previous 1s.

I'm hoping that this tour works out. I believe that we should start playing Ireland every year home/away. Let's face it, our schedule is light in the upcoming years and it would be best for us to play Ireland more often. Plus in their conditions, they've already beaten us. Heck even in the WC they almost beat us. So they've got a pretty strong team.

That's great news. It's about time we started playing more matches against Ireland who are a better team than Zimbabwe IMO.

Our players won't learn that much from only 2 ODIs and 2 T20s even if we play on seaming conditions. The tour will be over before we even get accustomed to the condition. Oh well, I guess Loitta is grabbing at everything to save his face.

What if Ireland rejects our proposal?

Anyway, beating Ireland in Ireland will be a difficult task. We are the one who will be under radar. One slip here and there might get costly.

There is nothing wrong with Ireland advancing their cricket - they deserve it, as does Afghanistan.

Agreed! We should play them every year. They play county cricket in and out and we should be looking to play more 4-day matches with them.

They're not better than Zimbabwe yet. In fact, based on the last series we played against them, can we say for sure we're better than Zimbabawe?

Default আয়ারল্যান্ড সফর হচ্ছে না




ক্রিকেটবিহীন সময়ে ‘বিশ্রাম’ই প্রাপ্তি

‘আয়ারল্যান্ড সফরটা যদি হয়...’, কথা শেষ করতে পারলেন না ইমরুল কায়েস। টেলিফোনের এ প্রান্ত থেকে জানানো হলো, আপাতত সে সম্ভাবনা নেই। বাংলাদেশ দলকে আতিথেয়তা দিতে আইসিসির অনুদানের অপেক্ষায় ছিল আয়ারল্যান্ড ক্রিকেট। কিন্তু সেটি এখনই পাওয়া যাচ্ছে না বলে বাংলাদেশকে লম্বা সফরের আতিথ্য দিতে পারছে না আইরিশ বোর্ড।
শুনে ইমরুল কায়েস হতাশ, ‘তাহলে তো আর কোনো খেলাই নেই!’ গত মার্চের এশিয়া কাপের পর এপ্রিলে পাকিস্তান সফরে যাওয়ার সম্ভাবনা ছিল বাংলাদেশের। আগস্টেই নির্ধারিত ছিল জিম্বাবুয়ে সফর। আদালতের নিষেধাজ্ঞায় স্থগিত হয়ে গেছে পাকিস্তান সফর। জিম্বাবুয়ে সফরও পিছিয়ে গেছে প্রায় এক বছর। আবার আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেট খেলতে বাংলাদেশকে তাই অপেক্ষা করতে হচ্ছে সেপ্টেম্বরে শ্রীলঙ্কায় অনুষ্ঠেয় টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপ পর্যন্ত।
আন্তর্জাতিক ক্রিকেট থেকে প্রায় ছয় মাসের বিরতিটাকে বিসিবির পরিচালক গাজী আশরাফ হোসেন দেখছেন ইতিবাচকভাবে, ‘খেলোয়াড়দের বিশ্রামও প্রয়োজন। সেদিক দিয়ে লম্বা বিরতিটাকে শাপে বর হিসেবে দেখা যায়। ক্রিকেট থেকে কিছুদিন দূরে থাকাটা ইতিবাচক প্রভাব ফেলতে পারে খেলোয়াড়দের ওপর।’ নির্বাচক হাবিবুল বাশারও ছয় মাসের ‘বিশ্রাম’টাকে নেতিবাচকভাবে দেখতে রাজি নন, ‘এটা শারীরিক ও মানসিক বিশ্রামের একটা সুযোগ। গত এক বছর ছেলেরা টানা খেলার মধ্যে ছিল। এ রকম বিশ্রামের সুযোগ কমই আসে।’
কিন্তু এশিয়া কাপে অমন দুর্দান্ত পারফরম্যান্সের রেশ ধরে রাখার জন্য খেলার মধ্যে থাকাটাই বোধহয় বেশি জরুরি ছিল ক্রিকেটারদের জন্য। পাকিস্তান ও জিম্বাবুয়ে সিরিজ ঝুলে যাওয়ার পর বিসিবি যে চেষ্টা করেনি তা নয়। দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকা রাজি হয়নি তাদের ক্রিকেটারদের ওপর চাপ বেশি পড়ে যাবে বলে। আয়ারল্যান্ডও কিছুদিন আশায় রেখে এখন একরকম অপারগতাই প্রকাশ করছে। কথা ছিল, আয়ারল্যান্ডে গেলে বাংলাদেশ দল একটি চার দিনের ম্যাচ ছাড়াও পাঁচটি ওয়ানডে ও দুটি টি-টোয়েন্টি ম্যাচ খেলবে। কিন্তু আইসিসির অনুদান আপাতত পাচ্ছে না বলে তাদের নতুন প্রস্তাব, তিন ওয়ানডের সিরিজ। তবে বিমান ভাড়াটা বিসিবিকেই দিতে হবে। প্রচুর টাকা খরচ করে আয়ারল্যান্ডে গিয়ে শুধু তিনটা ওয়ানডে! সংগত কারণেই বিসিবি চিন্তাটা বাদ দিচ্ছে।
চাইলেও তো কিছু করার নেই। ক্রিকেটাররা এখন তাই মন্দের ভালো খুঁজে নিচ্ছেন। এশিয়া কাপের ছন্দ ধরে রাখতে খেলার মধ্যে থাকা উচিত ছিল মনে করেন মাশরাফি বিন মুর্তজা। সেটা যখন হচ্ছেই না, মাশরাফি চান সময়টাকে অন্যভাবে কাজে লাগাতে, ‘এই সময় সবাই পরিপূর্ণ বিশ্রাম নিতে পারে। তবে ফিটনেস ধরে রাখার দিকেও জোর দিতে হবে। লম্বা বিরতি সমস্যা হবে তখনই, যখন এটা আমাদের ফিটনেসে প্রভাব ফেলবে।’ সেটা যেন না হয়, সে দায়িত্ব নিজেদের ওপরই নিচ্ছেন জাতীয় দলের সাবেক অধিনায়ক, ‘আমরা পেশাদার ক্রিকেটার। সব দোষ এফটিপি বা ক্রিকেট বোর্ডের ওপর চাপানো যাবে না। ম্যাচ ফিটনেস যদিও আলাদা ব্যাপার, তবে চাইলেই আমরা নিজেদের ফিট রাখতে পারি। সবাই এখন জানে, তাদের কী করতে হবে।’ মাশরাফি নিজেও সময়টা কাটাচ্ছেন নিয়মিত ফিটনেস ট্রেনিং করে। তবে আপাতত তিনি নড়াইলে। ‘কয়েকটা দিন পুরোপুরি বিশ্রাম নিতে চাই।’ টেলিফোনে বললেন মাশরাফি।
গত কিছুদিন ঢাকায় ফিটনেস ট্রেনিং করেছেন ওপেনার ইমরুল কায়েস। তিনিও এখন নিজ শহর মেহেরপুরে। ফিটনেস ধরে রাখার কাজ চালিয়ে যাবেন সেখানেও। তবে ইমরুল চাচ্ছেন খেলা থেকে একদমই দূরে থাকতে, ‘এতে খারাপ কোনো প্রভাব পড়বে মনে হয় না। আমাদের শারীরিক-মানসিক দুই রকম বিশ্রামই দরকার ছিল। সেটা হচ্ছে।’
অধিনায়ক মুশফিকুর রহিম পরীক্ষা নিয়ে ব্যস্ত। শাহরিয়ার নাফীসও ঢাকায়। পালা করে জিম-রানিং চালিয়ে যাচ্ছেন। ফিটনেস ঠিক রাখতে নিজ উদ্যোগে একজন ট্রেনার রাখছেন সঙ্গে। সাকিব আল হাসান-তামিম ইকবাল আইপিএলে। সাকিব তিনটা ম্যাচ খেললেও তামিম সময় কাটাচ্ছেন ঘুরেফিরে আর অনুশীলনে। মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল গেছেন কেন্ট লিগ খেলতে। কাঁধের চিকিৎসা করাতে এ মাসের ১৩-১৪ তারিখে দক্ষিণ আফ্রিকায় যাওয়ার কথা রুবেল হোসেনের।
বাকিরা অধীর অপেক্ষায় আছেন চট্টগ্রামে অনুষ্ঠেয় বঙ্গবন্ধু টি-টোয়েন্টি টুর্নামেন্টে খেলার। ক্রিকেটবিহীন সময়ে মাঠে নামার এটাই যে একমাত্র সুযোগ! কিন্তু বিধি বোধহয় এখানেও বাম। এ মাসের শেষের দিকে হওয়ার কথা থাকলেও কাল শোনা গেল, আগামী নভেম্বরের আগে মাঠে গড়ানোর সম্ভাবনা নেই এই টুর্নামেন্টের।
