Summary

  • Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan said yesterday that it was not the pitch but poor batting that caused Bangladesh’s debacles against Sri Lanka in the ODI tri-series.
  • The BCB boss also came down hard on those who were trying to shift the blame to BCB’s chief curator Gamini Silva rather than taking responsibility for their own shortcomings.
  • “They should come out of the blame game and instead think about their own mistakes and concentrate on their game and responsibility,” he added.
  • He was also surprised to learn that the current team management has decided on the team for the first Test two days before the game, when earlier they decided only after the final inspection of the pitch.
  • Hassan also revealed that Cricket Australia informed that they were not interested in hosting Bangladesh for a two-match Test series in August-September this year as it will not be commercially viable for them.
