    Bangladesh's tour of India still in doubt

    Last December, the BCCI decided to postpone Bangladesh's series in India in order to accomodate Pakistan's visit.

    Apparently the understanding was that Bangladesh would tour India in 2005. We're close to the end of 2005 and now the Bangladesh Cricket Board President Ali Asghar reveals that the BCCI has still not committed itself to accomodating Bangladesh. This time around it is apparently because the ICC's 'Future Tours Programme', which is proposed to use a six year window, has not yet been finalized.

    Bollocks! Why'd the BCCI ever want to host Bangladesh when it can get so much more money by hosting other countries?

    Hold on. England were told by the ICC that they could not pull out of the Zimbabwe tour because of the Future Tours programme. How does that work? Is it because the tour dates had already been agreed?

    Perhaps it's because Bangladesh actually won an ODI last time. How impertinent.

    Close, but no cigar, Geoff. You're allowed to postpone (without needing to commit a timeline) a tour as long as you ensure that you stick to the FTP window. England wanted to actually pull *out* of touring Zimbabwe. Remember that they only played one-dayers. The test series has been "postponed", as has Australia's test series in Zimbabwe.

    Bangladesh's win is unlikely to have meant anything to the BCCI. Since when did they bother about actual on-field happenings?

    Touché. Well, at least Bangladesh have the ODIs against Kenya to look forward to. No, wait...
