Time to stop the rot

Time to stop the rot

Make no mistake about it, Bangladesh cricket is in a state of emergency. If the BCB were governing a country, its charge would be declared a failed state. Take a look at the events that have led to the inexcusable fiasco which saw Bangladesh unable -- unwilling may be a better word -- to chase 106 in 41 overs against a second-string India. In the World Twenty20 at home Bangladesh went down to a motley crew of part-timers from Hong Kong chasing a similar target. A month before, they lost an ODI to Sri Lanka after reducing the to-be T20 world champions to 67 for eight. In the match following...

Pace pair runs against time

With Bangladesh's next game is scheduled against the West Indies on March 25, many would have ideally thought that the mini-break of sorts would have given the team management and the players the time to start afresh and recover from their unexpected defeat to Hong Kong in the first round. However, as it so happens, the hosts now have to worry about getting two of their pacers fit in time for their Super Tens opener. The fates of both Mashrafe...

Blessing in disguise

Bangladesh coach Shane Jurgensen believes that the first round games in the ICC World Twenty20 for the Tigers have turned out to be a blessing in disguise, with the wins helping the hosts turn their form around. Speaking to reporters yesterday ahead of their must-win encounter against Hong Kong in Chittagong, the Australian said, "I think this has been a fantastic opportunity for us to play. Nine months ago when all the talks of [Bangladesh] playing this qualifying stage happened,...

And Mashrafe is injured again

Star Bangladesh pacer Mashrafe Bin Mortaza is all set to miss today's crucial game against Hong Kong in Chittagong as he is scheduled to travel to Dhaka in order to have an MRI scan on the right portion of his body today morning. Mashrafe sustained some damage to his right ribcage area during the first game of the ICC World Twenty20 against Afghanistan while attempting to save a boundary. While the valiant effort did save some runs, it took its...
