Default WI tour game reduced to 2 days

http://www.espncricinfo.com/banglade...ry/590215.html

Game is reduced to due to poor ground conditions. WTF?

So you can't prepare proper grounds for our players? What century are we living in here, the 17th?

With the crazy weather and rain (Highly unexpected) around. Your team will be really lucky if they can extract 2 full days out of the game. So, wouldn't have mattered much with an additional day

Why would we prepare a proper ground for u guys??? it's all about mind games....less practice for you guys, more chance for us to give a fight

Heard of home advantage???

Its just a practice match and this ground is a club ground not a test ground! But you did same thing in a test ground named sabina park against england in a official test match! did you forget it?

Yes but that was a long time ago. What I'm saying here is that we're living in modern times for a professional cricket board to prepare such a terrible pitch for foreign teams regardless whether it is a practice match or not.

Well again that isn't really the point is it? The main point here is that the cricket board can't manage a proper ground for foreigners to come play. Just now you all won't have any teams touring your country just like PAK.

But that's alright though, we FORGIVE you guys on this shortcoming just like we did for the World Cup bus stoning incident after that humiliating 58 all out defeat we gave you.

That's really classless. We're Bangladesh. We're not England or Australia. So obviously our grounds and facilities won't be the best of standards.

Let's face the facts here. Both Bangladesh and the WI islands are third world countries. So we shouldn't be knocking each other in that regard. It's quite silly and unnecessary.

Well, we have treated you as our guests last time.

But let me warn you, don't expect same treat this time - be ready to get mula bash as your appetizer!

Don't worry about it, we're just throwing around here on the board, its just a bit of competitive fun else these boards will be boring no?

I don't understand how a board is supposed to "prepare" "proper" "grounds" for your players when its been raining heavily for past few days. I don't know which cricket board in the world can. Its not like it rained 2 weeks ago and the management cannot prepare the ground for practice. We would have pointed fingers at them before you did.

I don't mind that but let's knock each other's players rather then grounds and facilities because that's pretty low in my opinion.

Anyways, I understand your point that we bowled you out in a dead rubber match for 61 but you guys still got out didn't you? I think we can agree that you guys have the better team but we can also be a tough team at home at times and the 61 all out shows that. Best of luck to you guys and hope for a good series.

I hope so too mate. Though, my guess is Gayle might fail the first test, but Samuels/ Bravo might step up ...

While WI is a far better team, I expect a better fight from the tigers this time.
I see our 2nd test win ...
