Bangladesh to play all the postponed Cricket Series
2020 could have been one of the busiest years in cricket in Bangladesh. But the series was postponed for most of the year due to the Corona effect. With the tour of Sri Lanka in October, however, the Tigers are going to return to cricket on a new schedule. Apart from the Test series against Australia at home, Bangladesh is going to play all the postponed series on a new schedule, the BCB president said.
All forms of cricket in the country were suspended in mid-March. Then one by one all the series outside the house were added to the list of suspensions. Against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the schedule of different formats was final. There were also mega-events like the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup.
The ACC and ICC are responsible for hosting the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup. However, the BCB has already started work on a new schedule for bilateral series. Apart from the two-match Test series at home against Australia, the rest of the series will see the light of day in the near future, said the BCB president.
Speaking to reporters in Mirpur yesterday (August 15), Nazmul Hasan Papon said, “We have missed so many games. To give an example, we were supposed to come here, Australia, New Zealand, these two have left. There is one Test left with Pakistan. There is Sri Lanka, there is an issue with Ireland. ‘
“But we have all prepared to play again or not. So these games will not be left out. Except for Australia, because it’s time to match them. We will be able to play the rest again, God willing. ‘
It is to be noted that Australia was scheduled to visit Bangladesh to play two Test matches in June this year. If Corona’s paw had not fallen, two Tests would have been played in Dhaka and Chittagong in June. The match also includes two Test championships. As a result, even if the new schedule is not finalized now, the series is not likely to be lost.
