Death of Test cricket in Bangladesh forced on by AUS ENG and Indian greed thumbnail

October 2006 was the time when the country’s sports fraternity went through a dark chapter, dubbed ‘Black Monday’ by the media, which saw national athletes assaulted by police. Yesterday saw the institution of another dark day when the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) directors voted 20-3 in favour of supporting the draft proposal which will be tabled at the next ICC meeting on 28-29 January, a proposal that will bring about a massive upheaval in Bangladesh cricket. In doing so, the BCB have consummately failed the country’s cricket supporters and its cricketers, ranging from those now in the national team to those youngsters who dream of scoring a Test century one day.
