Their security representative will arrive in Dhaka on Saturday, as part of the ICC's security meeting on Monday.


  • February 25 - Pakistan v Sri Lanka, Fatullah
  • February 26 - Bangladesh v India, Fatullah
  • February 27 - Afghanistan v Pakistan, Fatullah
  • February 28 - India v Sri Lanka, Fatullah
  • March 1 - Bangladesh v Afghanistan, Fatullah
  • March 2 - India v Pakistan, Mirpur
  • March 3 - Afghanistan v Sri Lanka, Mirpur
  • March 4 - Bangladesh v Pakistan, Mirpur
  • March 5 - Afghanistan v India, Mirpur

"Obviously every country's participation is subject to their government's order, more so in the subcontinent," Huq said. "Pakistan's security officer will arrive here on January 18 to take part in the ICC's security meeting which will, I am sure, give a clean report as there is no problem at the moment. The two officials of Sri Lanka Cricket are very close to me and they, too, I hope will give a clean report.

The 2012 Asia Cup in Bangladesh drew big crowed
Political violence has devastated Bangladesh in the last three months, but it is hoped that there won't be much trouble during the time of the Asia Cup. On Wednesday, BNP chairperson Begum Khaleda Zia did not announce any blockades or strikes for the month. This bodes well for the tournament as normal life has already resumed in many parts of the country, including Dhaka, in the last five days.
The issue with Pakistan's security concern is however related more to a diplomatic conflict, which is not entirely connected to the political impasse of the last three months. However, the BCB has guaranteed to the PCB that they will provide extra security personnel during Pakistan's stay in Bangladesh.
The other major talking point was the use of two venues - Fatullah and Mirpur - at two ends of Dhaka. The first five matches of the tournament will be held in Fatullah, to the south of Dhaka, and the rest, including the final on March 8, will be held at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.
The hitch in the schedule is the lack of reserve days. Though it is a predominantly dry season, things could go haywire if rain interrupts, as there is only one rest day ahead of the final.

London  – Former England captain Michael Atherton and a leading global anti-corruption watchdog have joined the chorus of criticism regarding plans to effectively cede control of world cricket to India, Australia and England.
Leaked draft proposals to be discussed at a two-day International Cricket Council (ICC) board meeting in Dubai on Tuesday and Wednesday call for more decision-making powers for a three-strong group of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Cricket Board, who between them represent the game’s wealthiest nations.
There is also a plan to create two divisions for Test cricket but with England, Australia and India all guaranteed to avoid relegation from the top tier because of their commercial importance.
Atherton, now the cricket correspondent of The Times, was scathing in his condemnation of the proposals, writing they represented “the end of the notion that a fair and principled and just body can govern cricket in the interests of all.”

Atherton agreed the ICC had to be reformed but said there was little merit in the ‘Big Three’ plan.
“No one doubts that the status quo, as far as the ICC is concerned, is unacceptable: two full-member countries are thought to be corrupt; four are essentially broke; most rely on India’s largesse to keep going…Politics, race and personalities interfere with decision-making at every turn. Incompetence is a given.”
Meanwhile Transparency International issued a statement on Monday saying the “intention to entrench a privileged position for ‘The Big Three’ appears to be an abuse of entrusted power for private gain, giving them disproportionate, unaccountable and unchallengeable authority”.
If adopted, the plan would also mean the end of the ICC’s existing Future Tours Programme, a system which compels the leading 10 Test nations to play each other during a set period.
But the plan’s supporters argue boards would be freed from “unviable” tours, whatever their merit in cricketing terms, and that this would lead ‘the seven’ beyond the ‘Big Three’ to become more financially self-sufficient.
The proposals need seven votes from the ICC’s 10 leading nations to pass.
The BCCI have also appeared to float ‘the nuclear option’ of withdrawing from all ICC events if the proposals are not accepted.

This is a potentially disastrous situation for many of the game’s smaller nations given the BCCI, thanks to cricket’s huge popularity in India, currently generates some 80 percent of the ICC’s global revenue.
‘Division and strife in world cricket’
Nevertheless, Cricket South Africa and Sri Lanka Cricket, representing two leading countries, if not two of the most financially powerful, have both called for the withdrawal of the ‘position paper’.
Leading former senior administrators, led by Pakistan’s one-time ICC president Ehsan Mani, have also denounced the ‘Big Three’ plan.
“Why does the BCCI need more money at the expense of other countries?,” Mani wrote in an open letter to the ICC, adding more funds should be diverted to cricket’s junior nations.
“If cricket could be established properly in the United States of America and China and become an Olympic sport, the ICC could double its revenues in real terms over the next 10-15 years,” he said.
“This requires vision and a less parochial approach.”
Ali Bacher, a former South Africa captain, warned of dire consequences if the ‘Big Three’ plan was adopted.
“The Position Paper put forward by BCCI, ECB and CA if accepted would lead to division and strife in world cricket as never seen before,” wrote Bacher.
However, New Zealand Cricket’s Martin Snedden has been a relatively lone voice in insisting there was more to the scheme than a naked power grab by the ‘Big Three’.
“Get this right and the FTP playing programme can be extended to 2023 and we can line it up with ICC events like the World Cup and World T20,” said Snedden.
“That’d be a stable platform to work from,” he also told the New Zealand Herald.

It could have turned out as a stun for the opener, who had remained faithful towards the Delhi establishment and played for it in all the six past seasons. However it is likewise an astringent truth that in the last season, Sehwag neglected to perform up to his calibre, which straightforwardly influenced the execution of the group and they just figured out how to win negligible three amusements out of the 16. Indeed in the on-going Ranji season, Sehwag neglected to play any great thump, aside from a half-century against Vidarbha; and keeps on strugging to get his structure back.

On the other hand, Gautam Gambhir, an alternate tossed player has been held by the Kolkata Franchise – Kolkata Knights Riders (KKR). Gauti is the captain of KKR and under his authority, the establishment won the fifth release of the lucrative alliance.

Mumbai: Defending champions Mumbai were shockingly demonstrated the entryway by minnows Maharashtra, who indicated huge versatility to record an originate from-behind eight-wicket triumph here on Saturday for a spot in the Ranji Trophy elimination rounds.

Set a focus of 252 to pursue for just their third inside and out triumph in the long-running rivalry over the 40-time victors, Maharashtra rode on an unbeaten century from Kedar Jadhav (120 not out) and his great 215-run unconquered third-wicket stand with 19-year-old Vijay Zol (91 not out) to turn the tables on the home group on the fourth day of the five-day match.

Jadhav, who made 51 in the first innings and additionally crossed 1000 runs for the season throughout this superb thump, confronted 144 balls and hit 14 fours and three sixes in his 239-moment thump. It was the latter`s fifth century of the season and ninth in his five star vocation since appearing in 2007-08.

Zol confronted 180 balls and struck 13 fours in his 258-moment unbeaten thump. Maharashtra`s triumph came 10 prior minutes tea when Jadhav fittingly swung Thakur for a four.

Maharashtra might meet the champs of the other quarterfinal between Bengal and Railways in the semi-finals planned at Indore`s Holkar Stadium from January 18-22.

Zol and Jadhav began mindfully in the wake of uniting at the succumb to the second wicket with 37 ready for opening out to completely command the hosts` strike.

Mumbai`s Kaustubh Pawar dropped Zol at spread focus off Abhishek Nayar, in the latter`s first over, when the left-gave youth was at only three in a score of 43 for 2.

This was an amazingly expensive slip by as Zol developed from quality to quality in the organization of Jadav, who was in the squad that had long ago vanquished Mumbai in the 2005-06 season at this very Wankhede Stadium. The pair prepared for Maharshtra`s important triumph and their first entrance into the last four 17 years later.

The last time Maharashtra, who topped Group C in the alliance, had arrived at the semis was in 1996. They had demolished Mumbai by and large one other time prior in 1952-53.

It was an incredible originate from-behind win too for Maharashtra as they had surrendered a fundamental first innings lead of 122 rushes to Mumbai before storming their route go into the diversion yesterday when their pace trio of Anupam Sanklecha, Samad Fallah and Shrikant Mundhe grouped out the home group for a negligible 129 in the second innings.

Still a focus of 252 on the bouncy Mumbai track against the Mumbai assault headed by India`s pace lead Zaheer Khan looked an imposing errand particularly after the left-arm bowler had released Khurana efficiently yesterday and the league`s top scorer Harshad Khadiwale with a snorter unanticipated today.

Continuing at 28 for one and requiring 224 more to upstage the holders, Maharashtra were shaken on the back foot unanticipated at the beginning of today by Zaheer when he constrained Khadiwale to fight at a short one from round the wicket and the ballooning get was effectively held by Pawar in the slip cordon.

However the same fielder dropped a basic chance, and a paramount one at that, a while later off Nayar. What's more Zol thrived in Jadhav`s organization on a wicket that dialed down as the day advanced.

Mumbai skipper Zaheer Khan attempted to rearrange his medium pacers around, and rocked the bowling alley four short spells himself to impact the leap forward yet fizzled.

Left-arm spinners Vishal Dabhoklkar and Iqbal Abdulla, who was the playing courageous person in the holders` hail from behind triumph over Gujarat in their do or bite the dust last association match prior with a 11-wicket pull at Valsad, were likewise inadequate on the crease neighborly track.

Truth be told, so ineffectual was Dabholkar, the team`s most elevated wicket-taker in the group, that Jadhav hammered him for three sixes in one over ? two off progressive balls over the straight field ? to raise the 150 of the stand.

Zol had prior split Zaheer for progressive fours on the on-side before lunch to raise the 100 of the innings.

After lunch, taken when Mumbai were 111 for 2, Jadhav ousted Nayar off the assault by hitting him for two fours in the first over.

This set the tone for both batsmen to take the Mumbai strike by the scruff and rush their side`s triumph surge.

Jadhav finished his decently merited ton off just 124 balls bound with 3 sixes and 11 fours preceding he and his more youthful accomplice fixed an important triumph for Maharashtra.
