    ICL, IPL, Bangladesh cricket and a BCCI website!

    A fortnight or so ago, six Bangladesh cricketers sent in their resignation letters to the Bangladesh Cricket Board, to join the Indian Cricket League and play as a team called the 'Dhaka Warriors'.

    The board responded by banning them for 10 years. But it was pretty obvious that Bangladesh cricket was in serious shit. Big brother, the BCCI, stepped in to help out. How did the BCCI help? It offered to include more Bangladesh players in the 2009 edition of the Indian Premier League and a Bangladesh team in the 2010 Twenty20 Champions League.

    The BCCI's decision is so ridiculous. The Bangladesh Cricket Board does not benefit when its players play in the IPL, or the Champions League. The players do. At this point in time, no cricket board gets any payment for releasing its contracted players for the IPL.

    Perhaps the better option for the BCB would have been to get the BCCI to agree to a rapidly scheduled home-and-away test & ODI series. Bangladesh was to have played tests in India in April 2005. That then got postponed, so often, that no-one seriously expects it to materialize.

    In a path-breaking, breathtaking and least-anticipated development last week, the BCCI launched its website ( over a decade ahead of schedule. One of the first few decisions taken by the outgoing BCCI President, Mr. Sharad Pawar, was to target a 2020 launch of the BCCI's own website.

    It's perhaps apt to mention though that during the 2006 edition of the ICC Champions Trophy, you could buy tickets on After that tournament, the site lay dormant, until it sprung to life over the weekend!

    Amazingly enough, it even has RSS feeds for press releases and cricket news!
