Bangladesh to play T20 series in Ireland

Ireland have announced they will play a three-match Twenty20 series against Bangladesh in Belfast next month.

The games will be played at Stormont in Belfast on July 18, 20 and 21, with a warm-up fixture against an Ireland XI taking place on Monday the 16th of July.

“It’s great news that we’re taking on Bangladesh and the games will give us valuable preparation as we build towards the World Cup in Sri Lanka,” Ireland coach Phil Simmons said.

“We played an exciting brand of cricket in winning the recent qualifying tournament in Dubai and we’re now 8th in the world rankings in this format of the game.

“In Paul Stirling we have one of the most exciting players in international cricket at present and I’m sure the Belfast public will relish the opportunity to watch him on home soil.”

Cricket Ireland CEO Warren Deutrom said, “We are delighted to be able to bring more top quality cricket to Ireland.

“Hosting matches against the Full Member countries is exactly what we are striving for and this summer proves we are on the right track with matches against Australia, South Africa A, Afghanistan and now Bangladesh.

“I would also like to extend our sincere thanks to the ICC High Performance Programme and to ICC Europe for their financial support in helping make these matches come to fruition.

“In addition, this is the first time ever we are playing T20I matches at home against a Test nation, and we fully intend to play the games at a time and a price to suit the post-work and weekend crowd.”

The sides have met just once in this format of the game, during the group stages of the ICC World Twenty20 at Trent Bridge in 2009, a game which Ireland won by six wickets.

South Africa turns down Bangladesh tour request

Cricket South Africa (CSA) have turned down a request from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to play a series of One-Day International (ODI) and T20 International matches next month.

BCB

“Unfortunately there are too many practical obstacles that prevent us from accepting this commitment,” commented CSA Acting CEO Jacques Faul.

“At the moment most of our senior Proteas are spread around the world in England and India and those who are at home are undergoing rehabilitation from injuries picked up during the past season.

“We also have to bear in mind that the Proteas’ Castle Lager squad has a hectic schedule ahead of it with very important tours to England and Australia with the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka sandwiched in between.

“We have always enjoyed our contests with Bangladesh and we look forward to playing them again in the future.

“They have been playing very good cricket of late, including reaching the final of the recent Asia Cup competition.”

South African Cricketers’ Association (SACA) CEO Tony Irish commented, “Unfortunately this request has come through very late in the day by which stage most of the senior players had committed themselves to professional contracts abroad and it would be unfair to ask them to renege on them.

“The Proteas’ team management and players have also put their plans in place in the build-up to their tour of England and it would be impossible to change them at this stage.

“It is going to be a very tough tour and we will need a fully fresh and fit squad for this engagement.”

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal signs for Pune Warriors

Pune Warriors India have signed up Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal as a replacement for the injured James Hopes.

He becomes the second Bangladesh player who will be seen in IPL 5 after all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.

Tamim is the Pune franchise’s second international signing this week after Australian captain Michael Clarke.

The flamboyant Bangladesh opening batsman is in prolific form, having scored four half-centuries in the recently concluded Asia Cup. As a result, he played major role in the hosts making it to the finals of that tournament.

“I can gain a lot of experience by playing with greats like Sourav Ganguly and Michael Clarke. I like to talk a lot about cricket so I think I am lucky to be playing with them and look forward to learning new things,” Tamim said.

“It will be an extra boost, so it is very important that I do well. More importantly, just like Shakib opened the door for me, I would want that with my inclusion in the IPL, it will let other players from my country to play in this competition.

“With the T20 World Cup coming up this year, it will be a big opportunity for me to perform in the format.”

Tamim’s Twenty20 form, however, is modest as is reflected in his numbers in the Bangladesh Premier League. He played two matches for the Chittagong Kings, scoring eight runs.

Pune Warriors have now filled in all their international spots, acquiring 11 overseas players.

Shakib Al Hasan returns as No.1 ranked all-rounder in ODIs

Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan has returned as the number-one ranked all-rounder in the latest ICC ODI Championship table after a series of strong performances in the Asia Cup which concluded in Mirpur last Thursday.

Shakib Al Hasan

The left-hander’s 237 runs with the bat have put him in a career-best 12th position (up by 14 places).

And though he has slipped one place to eighth in bowlers’ list after his six wickets, the combination of two has meant he has moved ahead of Australia’s Shane Watson in the all-rounders’ category.

Shakib earned 27 ratings points for his player of the tournament performance and regains the number one position from Australia’s stand-in captain Watson.

Watson had leapfrogged the former Bangladesh captain after the tri-series tournament in Australia, which finished on 8 March in Adelaide.

Three West Indians – Darren Sammy, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard – are the other players to improve their rankings in the latest ICC Player Rankings for all-rounders’ list which was updated on Monday.

Sammy, the West Indies captain, has jumped 18 places to 16th position, Russell has gained 16 places to occupy 18th spot while Pollard has broken into the top 20 for the first time in 19th position.
