Default Champions Trophy 2008 ---- NO BANGLADESH

champions Trophy 2008

India, Australia and Pakistan drawn together

Cricinfo staff

March 13, 2008

The groups for this September's Champions Trophy in Pakistan have been announced by the ICC, and India, Pakistan and Australia have been seeded together.

Group A comprises of defending champion and top seed Australia along with India, Pakistan and the West Indies while Group B is made up of the winner of the inaugural event, South Africa, as well as New Zealand, Sri Lanka and England. The groupings were made on the basis of teams' rankings in the ICC ODI Championship table on March 12, the agreed cut-off date.


It was decided in 2005 that from 2008 the tournament would only include the top eight one-day sides exactly six months before the start of the tournament. As a result, Bangladesh, Ireland and Zimbabwe, who hold the last three places in the table, miss out.


The two groups will be played on a round-robin format with the top two sides progressing to the semi-finals. The full tournament schedule and information regarding venues will be announced by the ICC in due course.

Group A Australia (1), India (4), Pakistan (5), West Indies (8)
Group B South Africa (2), New Zealand (3), Sri Lanka (6), England (7)

so no bangladesh .......................

Enough of the free ride.
Lets earn it next time.

we cant even score 200 in either forms of the game, how would you expect them to include us into everything.

Champions trophy meant to be for the "champions".

we are chumps, not champs.

So, stop blaming India for everything.

Why am I not surprised.
Anyway, I hate the complaining nature of a few people. BD team isn't performing...and personally I feel that they will have to make a very strong case if they want to be considered for any other tourney of this sort.

Truth hurts, but it can also make us better Inshallah.

I wont complain about this. If the rule was hard coded the country names, I could complain. But its based on performence and the top eight will play. If we can perform and rank in the top eight, it would be us playing, fair enough.

there is nothing wrong in this. this was decided in 2005 itself & bangladesh had enough time to get into the top 8 in this time. as of now, matches played before august 2005 dont even count in the icc rankings, so in the last 2.5 years, if bangladesh had won some more matches, the situation could have been different. and by the time 2010 champions trophy comes, bangladesh should be there as bd will be a top 8 team by 2010. and stop blaming india for everything

It was on the news:

Even though we wont play in the CT, we'd still get a cut of the profit as we are a full member nation.

How good is that?

If we were ranked 8th, the rule would been like this:

Top six will automatically play, the remaining four teams will have to compete among themselves and two will go to the main tourney.

Oh well, something like this was bound to happen given how we've been performing over a stretch of a good few years.

In any case, I've just lost all interest in the Champions Trophy.
