Default papon wants to scrap India test!

http://m.thedailystar.net/#single_news

We're already starved of tests, especially if Pak pulls out as expected and Papon wants to cut even more tests. Who is he to decide? Hope the board of directors shoot his *** down.

I like that idea. scrap it and have 5 ODIs. One test series result - doesn't give you any points in the standings as far as I know. Target the Champions Trophy point system, September 30th. 2 wins in ODIs and we jump a lot of points. They are #2 right now.

But he's not asking for 5 ODIs. Even if he were to ask for 7 ODIs, 1 test is still better than a hundred ODIs. And every Test counts in the standings, just as ODIs played in the WC count in the rankings. We have every chance of drawing against India and gaining a lot of points from just 1 draw. Terrible move.

Whenever BCB makes stupid decisions it comes back to get us.

I thought this was a 1 Test, 3 ODI tour? So now it became a 1 Test tour? We should stick to the 1 Test, 3 ODI tour and if they want to send their A team, something they did last time, then so be it. Don't try to lose out on a Test because we lack spine. I know BCCI is much stronger than us but it doesn't mean we should negotiate that softly

Papon says we have a full series with PAK. Yeah right. PAK won't come.

We'll be left with just 4 Tests this year. Pathetic idiots runnin the show at BCB headquarters. I hope the directors knock some sense into Papon.

I think Pak will come. Just the usual drama that both PCB and BCB bring up due to the ineptness of both boards.

Does that mean if we are able to draw against India in that particular test, we get points in the ODI ranking? If that does not boost our standings in the ODI table then i think it's a good decision to scrap just one test and play minimum 5 ODIs.

I think it's bcci and bcb political chaal to kick out west indies from ICC champions trophy. If bd plays 5 odis and won 2...if bd qualify for that.....picture is clear here...ind still win the series by 3-2...and take a revenge for pulling out the series against them...well whatever happend....I like to see bd playing more game...so if it's a champions trophy, I'm loving it.

5 ODIs? Are you kidding. India will only sign up for 3 and then send their B squad.

At least with a 1 off test we'd get to play against a full strength or near full strength side. Especially now with their 7th place ranking can't afford to just draw a match with BD and lose 2-3 ranking points.

This is the reality of modern cricket. 7/10 boards dont give a toss about tests anymore and would gladly take an ODI or t20 over a test match. Sad but true. Bar England, Australia and South Africa the other nations really dont mind a series without tests

A draw against India also gets us valuable points...
If Papon can get like a 7 match ODI series than I wouldn't mind scrapping the test... But even 5 wouldnt compensate for the test

We lose to India's C team.. so if they send B team it will be tough battle. Need to see if Stuart Binny or his cousin with no first class experience is there or not.
i think scrapping a single test in favor of odis is purely due to the financial gains. Thats what our administrators are all about! Money! Cant believe Khaled Mahmud is again the manager of our team.
