    As mentioned in the new rules, this thread is for those minor articles which don't deserve a thread but still are worth discussing. This thread is not just for posting articles, other cricket related topic can go in here provided they don't warrant a new thread. So essentially this is similar to the Random Thoughts thread in General Chat.

    Note if you have any Cricket questions, use http://www.planetcricket.org/forums/cricket-discussion/cricketing-queries-64075.html.

    Think it would be very dumb to make them a test-case/example for guerilla advertising. Shows a certain sense-of-humour failure.

    I thought cricket was all about the banter. To punish them would be churlish.

    If they tried the legal action I'm sure they wouldn't get anywhere. The fine is fair enough but that is all that deserves.

    Here is a bigger picture of that:

    Week in pictures: 23-29 October 2010
    BBC News - Week in pictures: 23-29 October 2010

    Since this picture is a bit bigger I saw there was a website written underneath the faces of Ponting and Clarke: bringontheashes.com

    That link leads to this page: Bring It On

    Check out who sends a message towards Australia in the videolink.

    Beneath the page you can see various pictures of the Australian cricketers with holding a banner.

    Here is a guestbook. You can leave a message in there. And here is the reason to leave a message:

    What's the link with the first bit got to do? I'm not seeing the relevance of it in the thread.

    You will see several such things happen, especially if NZ gets whitewashed by India in tests and ODIs too.

    Bangladesh Central Contracts

    I didn't know where to put it so I put it here.
    Mohammad Ashraful handed top-level central contract | Bangladesh Cricket News | Cricinfo.com
    From Cricinfo:
    Grade A+ Masrafe Bin Mortaza, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Ashraful, Abdur Razzak, Mushfiqur Rahim, Tamim Iqbal

    Grade A Shahadat Hossain, Junaid Siddique, Mahmudullah

    Grade B Syed Rasel, Raqibul Hasan, Nazmul Hossain, Naeem Islam, Imrul Kayes, Rubel Hossain

    Grade C Shafiul Islam

    Rookie Grade Jahurul Islam, Mohammad Sohrawordi

    I can't believe Ashraful and Razzak get a grade A+ contract and Shahadat getting a grade A contract. Why did Shafiul get a C grade contract? He should have got an A.
    And Alok Kapali and Nafees not even getting contracts?! Thats just bs

    Kapali hasn't played for a long time.

    Surprised about Ashraful being so high and Shaiful being so low tho. And Nafees should have gotten a contract. And I'm guessing Mohammed Sohrwadi is Shuvo.

    Razzak is okay.
