Default BCB Media Release: BCB’s response to PCB’s claim

DHAKA, Friday, 18 January 2013

Media Release

BCB’s response to PCB’s claim

The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is surprised and disappointed at the claims made by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in a media release issued on 16 January 2013. It was alleged in the statement that the ‘PCB was kept out of the process’ when the Pakistani players were being registered for BPL T20 Season 2 auction and that the auction of Pakistani cricketers was done without the prior intimation of the PCB.

In this regard the BCB’s position is clear. On 05 December 2012 the BCB had formally written to the National Cricket Associations of all Full Members seeking support and cooperation for issuance of ‘No Objection Certificate’ to the cricketers under their respective jurisdiction who were interested in participating in the 2nd edition of BPL T20. The subsequent player auction, in which a good number of Pakistani players were bid for and picked up by different franchises, received worldwide media coverage. At no point during the continuous communication between the BCB and PCB on various matters since the BPL 2013 auction on 20 December 2012 did the PCB raise any concern about the NOC issue until 16 January 2013.

This last-minute stance of the PCB of denying permission to its players to participate in the BPL therefore came as a complete surprise and left the BCB, the organisers of the BPL and the Franchises facing a difficult and embarrassing situation.

The history of cooperation between the BCB and PCB is not unilateral. Bangladesh played a significant role in the resumption of international cricket in Pakistan following the Australian team’s refusal to play there due to concerns over security in March 2008. It was the BCB which showed confidence in Pakistan and sent the National Team there in April 2008 to play five ODIs and a T20i. The BCB also opened its doors to the Pakistani cricketers in the first edition of the BPL and the players were immensely benefited financially and from a competition point of view.

The BCB had attempted to tour Pakistan in 2012 and 2013 out of goodwill and from a genuine intent of trying to assist a fellow ICC Full Member in getting international cricket back in their country. This was never seen as a bargaining tool, a compromise or the consequence of any pre-condition. The BCB also wishes to reiterate the fact that its main priority while considering a tour to Pakistan has always been player safety and security and the presence of a congenial atmosphere for staging international cricket.

The BCB greatly values the friendship and bond with the PCB which has been based on mutual respect and understanding. We hope this relationship will continue to get stronger in the coming days.

Its a diplomatic response (in a regretful tone)

Good response, although I would have said 'FO' in the end if I were the BCB chairman

The FO was implied. A very well written response.

I did not think BCB could have written such straight forward response.
"Take that PCB".

Very well crafted response from the BCB. Who would have thought? Don't think The Lotus would have been able to come up with a reply like that.

BC members need to comment at CI. Because of our absence, it is relatively one-sided there.

I think PCB needs to rethink their strategy. No one wants to tour Pakistan and a strident attitude will not help. Pakistan has a successful and entertaining team, and should be run without being guided by emotions.

I have started posting there. I won't spend too much time there, but we need to state our opinions clearly and calmly.

Which is precisely why we need to post there and make it more balanced, IMHO.

I have given up posting on CI. Tried many, many times, but the comments never get published. I don't know who's moderating the message board, but there appears to be some serious bias in the filtering. Posts bashing BD get through; anything remotely retaliatory gets ignored. What's the point?

I read an article here by Umar Farooq and Mohammad Isam ("Bangladesh could tour Pakistan in 2012") that BCB supported the nomination of Ehsan Mani in 2003 with the understanding that PCB will support the BCB candidate the next time around. Shouldn't PCB abided by their gentleman's agreement and treated the tour of Bangladesh as a separate issue? There were broken promises from both sides, but it looks like PCB apparently started it.

I don't see any rational behind posting in Cricinfo. Most of them are under-aged internet trolls.

Well at least they got the good humor to poke fun at themselves:

Tiger_Mahmud: Guys, it's not going to be that easy to beat New Zealand. We mustn't be over-confident. I hope coach Shakib is working on plans on how to dismiss Brendon McCullum. He was brilliant against India last month.
EnZedblessyou: God! BMac needs to retire, man, How long will he hold on to a place in the side based on his scores against minnow teams? He's keeping more deserving batsmen out.
ChampofIndia: @EnZedblessyou, excuse me, but who are you calling a minnow? India was the No. 1 Test side and won the World Cup in 2011, I'll have you know. Check your facts brother before saying rubbish about my team.
EnZedblessyou: @ChampofIndia, oh great one more irate India fan who can't help but hold to the brief glory that 2011 brought him. Snap out of it, mate, you guys are history
Pakcrackerjack2000: Guys, ignore the Indian loser. Obviously he'll live in past only when he and his board controlled world cricket and took advantage of the rest of us. How does it feel to be on the other side, champ?
Dravid_fan: Yes, it's like the cycle of life. India were financial leaders of world cricket just like England before them. Now the power base has shifted to Bangladesh and New Zealand. But don't make the mistakes England and India made. Be humble and understand your responsibilities. Cricket needs you to be magnanimous statesmen.
ShereBanglacric2: Shut it Dravid_fan. Leave the hand-wringing save-cricket-from-dying pleas for Cricinfo's writers to write about

It is probably RI who drafts and sends out the media releases. I don't think goofs who run the BCB have it in them to be so diplomatic. However, why should we even bother responding to crybaby PCB?
