    australia cancels bangladesh tour

    The money generated by ODIs is also having an adverse impact on cricket's growth, with Australia cancelling a two-Test series against Bangladesh in Cairns next year, but squeezing in five ODIs against England after the re-scheduled Pakistan Test series in June-July.

    Just wow. I feel bad for the Cairns people that they will not be able to watch Shakib live in action.

    Australia running scared? Quite possibly IMO.

    There's no reason why. All they need to do is recall that top order batsman, Gillespie.

    Sorry for Bangladesh and all, but a winter series in Cairns versus the worst test nation is a tough sell for the ACB marketing bods.

    I don't object to Bangladesh having test status, but them being part of the future tours plan is a nonsense.

    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Should send them over to Australia in the summer, have them fly around and play a first-class game against all the states, then give them a one-off Test in Hobart.

    Wouldn't have a problem with that, except perhaps for the last part. If they get whalloped by the states the test would seem a bit unnecessary as a sporting contest.

    True, true. The 'if' is probably a bit unnecessary there as well...
