BCB

Wasim to coach BD bowlers?

Former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram could become Bangladesh's bowling consultant. Chairman of the Bangladesh Cricket Board's (BCB's) cricket operations committee Akram Khan had meetings with the Pakistan legend about a possible position with the BCB during the Asia cup and the recently concluded ICC World Twenty20. According to BCB director Akram, a proposal could be raised in the forthcoming board meeting. “The board still does not know anything about the issue. I hope to raise it in the next board meeting....

Hospitality not enough

Hospitality not enough

Bangladesh's reputation as a good host was enhanced with the successful ending of the ICC World Twenty20; the biggest tournament the country has organised, in which a total of 26 teams took part. With it has been cemented in the global cricketing consciousness what we as Bangladeshis always knew; that we as a people are generous and inviting hosts. It is hard to imagine now that there was once doubt over the hosting of two international events -- the Asia Cup and the World Twenty20 -- due to security concerns, but both tournaments have been hosted in the right spirit and in a peaceful manner. For these successful endeavours all...

A time for change?

A time for change?

It's been four days since Bangladesh's dreadful World Twenty20 campaign officially came to an end and apart from the noise created from Shakib Al Hasan's controversial interview, the post- tournament period has so far been a quiet one for the Tigers, with no major changes announced by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) as...

HUMOROUSLY YOURS

Bath Island

IF it is a 'wash', then why are we surprised to see a guy in a towel? But you know you are no ordinary mortal if the camera not only trains on you at this instant, but you also have to pay to scratch parts of your own body. Wonder what the BCB would have done to Michael Jackson… Shakib Al Hasan. Crotch behind. Good thing there were no gestures on the field, else he would have been a suspect...

Tumultuous time for the Tigers?

Mashrafe Bin Mortaza was his usual funny self. Some other players also exchanged hellos. Banned Shakib Al Hasan was there too, but no one was allowed to talk with the media after the Tigers' training session at the BCB Academy ground in Mirpur yesterday. But what could be noticed was the cohesion was not the there. It has become a habit nowadays that whenever the team faces any crisis, a media embargo is imposed on the players. And yesterday was...
