BCB

Split-captaincy decision today?

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is most likely to make a decision on split-captaincy in today's board meeting at its headquarters in Mirpur. "I think Mushfiqur [Rahim] should give up captaincy in at least one format. Almost everyone believes that he should quit in one format," said BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon while talking to reporters yesterday. The meeting has been convened mainly to discuss the Tigers' dismal performance on their Caribbean tour where Mushfiqur's men played so poorly that they suffered...

Silence masks pain of missing out

Shakib Al Hasan now regularly visits the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur as the ace all-rounder has a separate training schedule to follow. He often flashes an infectious smile at the reporters and sometimes even exchanges a few words; of course not anything serious or relating to his six-month ban on disciplinary grounds. Shakib is naturally straightforward but he has been showing a lot of restraint since the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) slapped the all-rounder with a six-month ban...

Batting Woes concern Faruque

Batting Woes concern Faruque

With a number of Bangladesh's top-order batsmen struggling to hit form, BCB's chief selector Faruque Ahmed said that he was concerned about the national team's batting and that it was an aspect that the Tigers would have to improve upon before the World Cup.   While Bangladesh's ploy to field seaming wickets in the India series did manage to trouble the visitors' strong batting line-up, it also however backfired heavily as the Tigers were bundled out for just 58 in the second ODI.   The second-stringed Bangladesh team which visited the West Indies recently has many players who are currently in the preliminary squad for the tour in August -- including Nasir Hossain,...

Apology softens hearts

Shakib Al Hasan's decision to appeal to the Bangladesh Cricket Board to reconsider his suspension has now put the ball in the BCB's court. While it is still not clear as to whether the board will bring about any modifications to the suspension at all, a large section of Bangladesh's cricketing community feels that Shakib, who publicly apologised for his behavioural misconduct yesterday, now deserves a shorter sentence. "He has apologised to the nation, which I think is a respectful...
