Silly security!

The lack of coordination within and among committees of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been a major area of concern during the ongoing series between Bangladesh and West Indies.
Incidents ranging from the serious -- letting fans enter the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium ground during the Tigers' training on the eve of the Twenty20 game -- as well as the silly (incorrect player photo charts in Chittagong) have occurred in the last week or so.
The two fans at the Mirpur venue came through two security gates and even posed as journalists to ask Shakib Al Hasan questions during a media brief in front of the players' dressing room.
The security committee has also posed problems for the logistics committee by making the bus (hired by the committee) carrying members of the media go through a difficult route to enter the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium premises.
Yesterday, they rerouted the bus -- that the previous day entered the ground by normal channels -- through the back of the stadium which is essentially a village path with a huge drain to cross, causing needless hardships for the bus, journalists and photographers, which in turn caused trouble to the media committee who have to bear the brunt of the complaints.
