BCB mulls 3 separate teams for each format: Akram

SPORTS REPORTER, Dhaka
BCB mulls 3 separate teams
for each format: Akram

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) director and its Cricket Operation Committee Chairman Akram Khan said they are mulling to form separate squads for Bangladesh cricket on three discrete formats of games ahead.

Akram also said they should have needed to have a separate Test squad for doing well in this format of the game. He also said they will try to produce some specialists’ players after having kept a core group for three formats.

Since the introduction of the new Future Tour’s Programme (FTPs) by International Cricket Council (ICC), the gravity and intensity of the world cricket has been changed overnight. The world cricket apex body coined World Test Championship (WTC) in the aspects of the men’s and women’s ODIs and T20Is World Cups to bring the golden days back for Test cricket, which is considered the basic of all the games of cricket but due to the popularity of T20 cricket, it was losing its place day by day.

Consulting with its member countries after its introduction of the WTC, the ICC approved ODI League, which is scheduled to roll onto the ground from 2020. In such consequences, there is no way for finding options to form separate squad for cricket to fare well and sustain in the tough competition.

“We should have separated our Test squad and then the approach of the format would be better. Each country has separated their Test squad right now. We have also some players including Mominul Haque and Shadman Islam for Test,” said Akram Khan, who went to India to see the opening Twenty20 match of the three-match T20I series against India.

“But if we could separate our eight percent players, we will do better performance in every format of game,” Akram told media.

“It’s a good thing amid some worse results that we have got a new set-up in the aftermath of the World Cup. It’s important for us how we can move forward with them in the next four years. If their finesses remain good and perform, this team, you all see, will stand after one-two years. They will play better cricket,” he added.

He said they are now working to form a squad of Twenty20 for the 2020 World Cup. Through it, they are starting to form a squad for 2023 World Cup.

Citing the names of Naim Sheikh, Aminul Islam, Akram said they have come through a process, do not come abruptly. If this process is in right shape, he believes, they will get to see so many new and potential players in days to come.

“Those who have come here within the last two years have to cross so many stages. Bangladesh ‘A’ has played so many home and away series. Its output is all but this. The performance and fitness of the players are always important,” he said.

“We are playing with a new set-up. More than one and half-a-years will be needed for them to be a real performer. All have to keep patience within this period of time,” he concluded.
