BCB boss Nazmul Hassan pronounced a Bangladesh house will cruise a other Full Members’ takes on a ‘position paper’, put brazen by a operative organisation of a Finance Commercial Affairs cabinet of a ICC, before entrance out for or opposite it. However, ESPNcricinfo understands that when asked for their sold opinions during a house assembly on Thursday, an strenuous infancy of a BCB directors pronounced a house should side with a BCCI or “we will be cornered”.
The categorical regard for Bangladesh is personification Test cricket – something that is now underneath hazard as one of a proposals is to make a teams ranked Nos. 9 and 10 play in a Intercontinental Cup (the ICC’s first-class contest for non-Test nations) from 2015. A house director, seeking anonymity, pronounced that even if that offer is approved, Bangladesh could still play shared array with a tip 8 if they align with India.
“The existence for a BCB is that we can't means to go opposite a BCCI,” a BCB executive said. “Bangladesh is a 10th ranked team, though if we align with them, there is each possibility that they will assistance us get teams to debate Bangladesh and clamp versa. Of march we have to cruise many other factors before we go with them though a infancy in a house trust that favoring India would be a best choice for us.”
In a press discussion that followed a meeting, Hassan pronounced a BCB would take a totalled preference before a ICC assembly on Jan 29. He also hinted during a revamped complement being profitable to Bangladesh, in that it could assistance them stand a Test rankings. The house would not “risk” Bangladesh’s chances of personification opposite tip nations by fast refusing a breeze proposal, he said.
“We have motionless not to demonstrate possibly we have taken a preference or not,” Hassan said. “I wish to know a opinions of a other play from today. It doesn’t matter what is pronounced in public, unless a same thing is pronounced in a meeting. If we conflict a offer though it still goes through, we will be underneath a lot of pressure.
“I will go to Dubai on Jan 25 to pronounce to other play to know a matter some-more clearly. We have to take a preference formed on a situation. We have to rest a lot on a response of a other boards.
Hassan pronounced he was assured that Bangladesh’s hosting of 3 general array in a evident destiny – Sri Lanka in a shared series, a Asia Cup and a World Twenty20 – would not be influenced by how a BCB votes. “If we conflict a proposal, it won’t impact a hosting of a Sri Lanka tour, Asia Cup or World Twenty20,” he said. “There’s no tie between these two.”
He believes if a offer goes by and a multi-tiered complement comes in, Bangladesh could take a No. 8 position in Test cricket – a breeze offer suggests a leader of a Intercontinental Cup could plea a No. 8 ranked team, home and away, and if a Test group is beaten, a Intercontinental Cup winners are promoted into a tip 8 during a loser’s expense.
“Our Test standing will sojourn [since a breeze offer has a “no disadvantage” condition, by that nothing of a stream Full Members will remove that status]. We will be among a 10 Test personification nations. But a Test rating indicate is 18, so to strech No. 8 ranking [under a stream system], we will need some-more than a decade. We are not removing adequate opportunities. Zimbabwe has 34 rating points, so we don’t know who we can kick to cover a difference.
“We have softened as a side in a final 18 months. We have played good opposite Sri Lanka, New Zealand and West Indies. But such performances haven’t reflected on a ranking. There is a possibility here to kick a others [in a Intercontinental Cup] and afterwards have a go during a No. 8 ranked team…”
“We can't take a risk, sold given a position of a cricket. If a opinion doesn’t matter, we will substantially stay quiet. But if a opinion decides a revamp, it will be really critical. What we will do during that theatre is something we can usually know once we am during a meeting.”
Hassan also believes that a Full Members will not be divided on this matter, though will arrive during a unanimous decision. “There won’t be a separate in universe cricket. we don’t consider [the ICC committee] would have presented such a outrageous offer but doing their task and we also don’t trust it will be a close-run thing. It will possibly be supposed or rejected.”
