Bangladesh's tour of India in doubt after players announce boycott

  Bangladesh's tour of India in doubt after players announce boycott Bangladesh's cricketers have boycotted all activity amid frustrations with the BCB, casting the tour of India into doubt.While they may not be all-time greats yet, thanks to their match-winning and record-breaking performances, these cricketers are on their way to be counted among the crème de la crème.

Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan was involved in a news conference in which Bangladesh's players issued a list of 11 demands to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

They included the reversal of the BCB's decision to disregard the Bangladesh Premier League's franchise-based model.

With the boycott taking place with immediate effect, the National Cricket League - which is currently ongoing - will be the first tournament impacted.

Bangladesh are due to tour India in November, but the players said they will not attend the scheduled training camp until the BCB meet their demands.

The tour is set to start on November 3, with three Twenty20 games planned before two Test matches in Indore and Kolkata.

India hammer SA to seal series sweep

  India hammer SA to seal series sweep India took just nine minutes on day four to wrap up an innings-and-202-run win over South Africa and a 3-0 series whitewash.  Resuming on 132-8 in their second innings, South Africa added one run off 10 balls before debutant Shahbaz Nadeem took the final two wickets off consecutive deliveries to give India a record victory over the tourists.

BCB CEO Nizamudin Chowdhury said a response will be issued once a formal complaint is made.

"We just came to know about it. We will discuss it in the board and try to resolve it as soon as possible," he said.

"I don't think it is anything like revolt. They are yet to tell us anything formally, but we are looking into the matter."
