Opener-heavy team picked

Bangladesh cricket selectors yesterday picked four openers when they announced a 15-member squad for the three-match ODI series against the West Indies.

Rain has final say

Rain has final say

As the smattering of spectators filed out of the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday just after 8pm, when rain had the final say on the fate of the third match – a dead rubber – of the three-ODI series, it was hard to escape the feeling that the damp squib was an apt ending. India won the series 2-0 courtesy of a seven-wicket victory in the first game and an astonishing 47-run victory in the second game when they scored just 105, but even the second-string side they sent will not be happy with their batting performances -- they were 119 for nine in 34.2 overs after choosing to bat...

Shakib at it again

Shakib at it again

As Bangladesh were being humbled by an under-strength India at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium yesterday, there was reportedly another one-sided fight going on behind the scenes. And if you have followed Bangladesh cricket, you will be given no prizes for guessing that at the eye of the storm was Tigers superstar Shakib Al...

Cricket in the time of football

Amid the frenzy surrounding the FIFA World Cup, a Bangladesh-India three-match ODI series will kick off in unfamiliarly low-key fashion today at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur from 1pm. At any other time the home series would be the centre of attention among a usually cricket-crazy nation, but football has been dominating discussions...

India come on June 13

The Indian cricket team will arrive in Dhaka on June 13 to play thee one-day-internationals at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur. The ODIs will take place on 15, 17 and 19 June. This will be Bangladesh's first series ever since the formation of the International Cricket Council's (ICC's) new Future Tours Programme. India are likely to send a weakened side with both captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and top order batsman Virat Kohli unlikely to be in the team. While India...

BCL Longer Version

Will it be Razzak v Taijul?

When BCB North Zone and Prime Bank South Zone lock horns in the final of the Bangladesh Cricket League from today at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, there will be some individual battles going on in the five-day affair apart from the fight for the trophy itself. It will be interesting to see the contest of the two left-arm spinners in experienced Abdur Razzak and young Taijul Islam, who is already considered as a bright prospect in the longer-version...

The Lions Feast at Last

The Lions Feast at Last

Old sayings do not always come true, history cannot repeat itself again and again and Sri Lanka proved it at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur last night. The saying that dropped catches lose matches was proved wrong as Lasith Malinga was eventually not punished and the Lankans emerged from their painful legacy of...

Who to have final smile?

Who to have final smile?

Lasith Malinga kept standing at one end of the pitch for a while on the gloomy afternoon yesterday at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur and it looked like the stand-in Sri Lanka skipper was seeking divine blessings ahead of today's ICC World Twenty20 final against a prolific India. The memories of the night...
