BCB Director acting as the team manager in the series said, “Belfast was far better than Dublin. There are a lot many troubles here, no facilities at all. I have informed the CEO of Cricket Ireland and people of Event Management here but still they could not solve anything.”
Bangladesh team had to do their practice sessions in indoors after reaching Dublin on 11th of May because of the totally unprepared wickets in Balbriggan field. Prior to their next match against New Zealand, Bangladesh have had their practice sessions only in 15th. Manager Jalal Yunus said, “We will practice even in the rest day because we have not been able to do much today.”
Bangladesh is even facing dietary problems in Ireland. According to the information of manager the cricketers are being served by only a single dish of chicken with rice every time they dine.
Jalal Yunus, frustratingly said, “The liaison officer is a level – 2 coach. He doesn’t understand anything of it. Our coaches and cricketers are frustrated over the things here. They are struggling to provide minimum facilities to us that we had to be given. But everything was penned in the MOU.”
Even team New Zealand also threatened not to visit Ireland to play in near future.
