Shadow national team causes confusion in the ranks

    Despite existing platforms such as the Bangladesh A team and the high performance team, Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) Chairman Nazmul Hasan announced that the board plans to form a shadow national team called the Bangla Tigers to strengthen further the pipeline.

    BCB Director and Chairman of the Dhaka Metropolitan Cricket Committee Kazi Inam Ahmed and BCB Director Khaled Mahmud took charge of the Bangla Tigers, a team that aims to provide year-round training facilities for players who have fallen from the national organization. On the surface, it is quite similar to what the Bangaldesh A team under the supervision of the BCB Cricket Operations Division, led by former Captain Akram Khan, intends to do.

    Surprisingly, Akram seemed embarrassed to the Bangla Tigers.

    “I’m not clear about the plans for the Bangla Tigers. Actually, I have not discussed it. I have to sit down and talk to them. The main purpose of Group A is to provide a platform for players to be dropped from the national team along with “To be honest, I’m still confused about this,” Akram told the media on Wednesday.

    However, Kazi Inam held a press conference the same day to describe the real plans for the Bangla Tigers. According to this director of the board, the idea of ​​forming a shadow national team actually involves the three current captains of Bangladesh.

    “Our plan is to involve the three leaders of the three forms. I have talked to Tamim Iqbal, Mominul Haque and Mahmudullah Riyad and everyone knows it. They were present when we discussed this issue with the president of the BCB. Everyone is excited and they also have “Suppose we do not take a hard hit on the white ball forms, someone who can win at number six or seven. If we have a one-year plan, then we can easily pick and choose the right players,” Inam explained.

    He also learned that the idea of ​​preparing a shadow national team came from Captain ODI Tamim.

    It will be interesting to see if the board can co-operate the shadow national team with the other teams and if it ultimately bears fruit or remains another trick. Only time will tell.
