I think before West Indies come to Zimbabwe there will be two teams coming either Afghanistan or Ireland? I'm s guessing?!!. What about domestic season for coming season when it will be starting any news about it Zimbabwe Cricket broad have have to start very strong domestic season this year so you can choose or get more talent in the Zim cricket team. If the domestic season is good there's no doubt that do will & there will be more chances in qualifying World Cup . :W:

The Australian tour will almost certainly be cancelled I reckon. The players and board will come to an agreement, but it will be too late to prepare for Bangladesh.
i hope not. the Aussies named the squad weeks ago, so the players know who needs to prepare. now if the boys are busy drinking and getting obese, yes, but I would hope they are training privately.

Whatever may be, Zimbabwe tour to Bangladesh in 2014-15 for a full tour and in 2016 for odis & t20s. The news has been BCB rejected to make full tour Zimbabwe in 2016, and always try to bring Zimbabwe to compensate the gap when other country doesn't tour Bangladesh.Neither they seems intetested in sending their A Team to Zimbabwe.

At present Aussies are about to cancel their all fixtures tour of Bangladesh & India, for payment disputes. Zimbabwe doing well in Sri Lanka will again make BCB to invite Zimbabwe to play in Bangladesh. Zimbabwe should'nt accept this proposal if it comes, they should get Bangladesh to tour Zimbabwe first, then think again of touring Bangladesh.
IMO, it would unwise for the ZC to outright reject a tour of/with BD, for no reason. Unless the ZC feels their players have been playing a lot of cricket and need a break to remain fresh for future tours.

The BCB has so far honored all the FTP commitments vis a vis ZC. They have neglected to play A team series with anyone, so its not that they have been snubbing Zimbabwe. As far as a tour in 2016, the BCB does not like to arrange extra tours outside the FTP during their domestic tournaments for some reason, and I believe the 2016 tour of ZIM would have clashed with the DPL tournament. The BCB has also declined to play WI due to a clash with the domestic schedule, and very recently has even turned down a tri series with India for that reason. I don't agree with that practice, but thats what the BCB does. So its really unfair to blame the BCB.

If the BCB does propose a series to ZIM, I would hope the ZC accepts it. I wouldn't mind them playing an away series in ZIM either, provided the weather is good. The BCB has up till now, denied that they are looking at replacing Australia, but if they had to, my guess would be that they would try NZ or possible the WI.


Full Strength Windies are scheduled for a full tour of England in August - September, before they meet Zimbabwe for 2 tests in october.
New Zealand Will Tour India for odis/ tri series in october, Sri Lanka are expected to replace Bangladesh as per the source says. So, New Zealand will not accept to tour Bangladesh, as they played them frequently over last 4 months

If Australia cancells, the tour Option for Bangladesh are Pakistan, Afghanistan & Zimbabwe.
Windies have a gap. NZ wouldnt refuse the chance for 2 away wins just because they have played us a couple of times, they are a professional board.

pakistan and bangladesh have beef, so that wont happen. PCB cancelled a tour that was in the FTP, no way they would agree to a tour outside the FTP unless it was in Pak. that wont happen because of security issues and politics.

at any rate BCB has so far rejected the idea of replacing Aussies. if the tour gets cancelled, they might try, but it might be too late to get a decent team over.

chek out here West Indies have packed schedule from August to September 2017

http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/ ... e=fixtures

Bangladesh to host Aussies in August September, so if they cancels, Windies will not tour Bangladesh, as they will be in England and off to Zimbabwe for 2 tests in October.

Kiwis has very less chance, better to say no chance to play a series in Bangladesh as they played lot against them recently.

If Pakistan skips, Afghanistan / Ireland tour to Bangladesh might be possible.As, Cricket South Africa has surprised by replacing Australia A for the tri nation series, praising their performance and improvement. BCB might think of hosting them or a tri series including Ireland.

On Zimbabwe point of view, they will be happy to host Bangladesh, rather then touring Bangladesh in September after one month break.

If they are the only team available they might say yes. They need the exposure to subcontinent conditions and have some scores to settle.

If the playing frequently thing made sense we wouldn't see another India vs Sri Lanka series till 2050.

I don't know if the BCB will invite AFG/IRE. Even if we do, I'd rather invite both teams for a one-off Test.

Irish want to play England i their innaugral test. Afghans want to play India in their innaugral test. So, Shorter formats might possible, otherwise Bangladesh have 2 months gap, before meeting the hardest tour of South Africa

Did you get that from Donald Trump's Fake News agency along with New Zealand can't play a 4th bilateral series vs Banglaesh in 7 years and West Indies will automatically qualify for the WC? The Irish want to play Tests and they want to play England. The Afghans want to play Tests and they want to play India. Not sure where you read they have to play their debut matches against those teams.

At any rate, we don't even know if the BCB will look for a replacement. They are notoriously stupid that way.

We also don't know the Aussies won't tour. The 1st Test is still 6 weeks away and the CA and the ACA have made some progress recently. Aussies are civilized and both sides will realize sooner rather than later that they need to compromise and make a deal. I want to believe they can figure that out in the next 4 weeks and still have a week plus to get to Bangladesh. The squad was named weeks ago, so there is no preparatio needed beyond packing bags and maybe actually booking the tickets.

U will find, very soon at present both the boards are busy in convincing them to find a slot.
Playing frequently with one nation is not possible in modern times.

source? you cant just report unsubstantiated claims and expect them to be accpeted at face value.

the English have said they will host Ireland but it never said it would be an inaugural Test. India havent even committed to playing Afghanistan.

it is hard to believe teams who have been dreaming of Test status would outright turn down a request against a decent Test outfit. this isnt the 10th grade, where you turn down dates with chicks just because they dont have D cup tits.

Rumours of Afghans coming back in Dec-Jan for full series. Apparently 3 tests, 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is. Seems too good to believe. Let us see if this works out.. Nothing confirmed yet.

Having a test match at Mutare / Kwe-Kwe would be wonderful!
