Default ICC Meeting ends: Some note of support for Bangladesh

So finally the ICC meeting ends with some well-needed positive support for Bangladesh, overruling all the anxiety of the BD Fans and also all the wayward Anti-BD voices by some critics and media-sources.

In the very recentlly ended ICC Board meeting, all the members have expressed positive support to Bangladesh (NTV reports last night) and the rumor that BD & ZIM would be discarded of Away matches has clearly been overlooked... infact, the issue hasn't even been on the agenda of the ICC meeting. Rather the 5 year FTP has been considered to be relaxed to 6 years for ALL the nations instead of just the bottom 2 teams!

I would say the extension of Ehsan Mani's era as ICC president is another supportive news for Bangladesh Cricket.

All these are good news... some really encouraging recognitions after long monthes of anxiety and confusion!!

It feels BD earned it with some real hard work in recent times.. and we just had a significant step forward in total context! I thank the total BD team from the heart as their recent success really has paid off!!


For understandable reason, majority of the cricket news-media have not taken this role of ICC in a welcoming mood.. but we fans should really celebrate it!!

Thank you ICC..
& ...Lets us all pray hope that the team only goes forward from this ponit !!

I also agree and think that our recent performance has influenced on the ICC decision makers to remove this item from their agenda.

Yes, thanks to Dav & Sumon along with Faruque - for their positive support towards the Bangladesh national team which made us possible to win as well as play well against the Zimbabweans.

'''''''''Instead, the ICC approached the issue with a bargepole tucked under their arms and, without singling any team out for special treatment (as had been widely expected), they instead gave each Test-playing nation six years instead of four to fulfil the terms and conditions of the Future Tours Programme, which requires all sides to play at least two Tests and three one-day internationals home and away over a fixed period.

On the face of it, it is a typically fudged issue. But, thanks to a craftily disguised sub-clause which permits the popular series (England v Australia, India v Pakistan) to keep their current timeframes, the fudge could in fact prove to be a cleverly worked compromise.

By opting, therefore, for a six-year compulsory cycle with provision for four, the responsibility has in effect been passed back to the individual nations. The popular (and by the same token, the profitable) series will be played over four-year cycles; the others shoehorned in where necessary. """"""

I am copying what I wrote on another thread on 'ICC meeting'.

Is it really all a thumps up situation for Bangladesh ? It appears that the 'two tier' system is indirectly "imposed" on, not only Bangladesh but apart from the four countries- Australia, England, India & Pakistan- to the rest of the Test playing countries. The 'Elite' group being able to play according to their current four year time frame, but the rest won't be able to do so. The rejoice being Bangladesh able to play 'away' series, as well as home series, and the minimum number of the Future Tours Programes games.

My apologies if I am totally wrong.

This appears to be just another report by another 'Unhappy' Columnist... who doesn't feel ICC did the right thing. It's probably time we start overlooking these type of negative-reportings and start looking forward in positive mind.

And about the explanation:
"It appears that the 'two tier' system is indirectly "imposed" on, not only Bangladesh but apart from the four countries- Australia, England, India & Pakistan- to the rest of the Test playing countries."

...I feel that is not the complete fact. What appears from the above report (if it is true) is that the Aus-Eng series or the Ind-Pak series may follow the 4 year cycle.. but in other cases, say when Pak or Eng plays any other nations.. they will follow the 6 year cycle. So its not that those 4 nations are getting supreme priority of 4 year cycle either. Infact many of the top 8 nations had already complained about -heavy-duty series schedule and had requested ICC to lighten it up.

For me...I wil not complain if ICC decides to arrange popular series like the Ashes or Ind-Pake bit more frequently than the others..
