The three-match Test series was scheduled to take place between July and August as part of the ICC World Test Championship. But it was postponed due to the outbreak of the Corona epidemic.
The report said the boards of the two countries wanted to complete the test series as soon as possible. BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury said: Now we have to work on that. We know the tournament is scheduled. Now we have to work with the schedule. ‘
The BCB official said, “Both countries are positive about hosting this Test series later this year. We are talking to SLC about this. This is because the situation in Sri Lanka is relatively better than in other countries of the subcontinent. The situation there did not get much worse. We are also more focused on the away match.
Bangladesh is also planning to reschedule the series in Ireland if the global health situation improves. The BCB has also kept in mind the issue of hospitality to Australia and New Zealand.
Nizamuddin said, ‘We will talk to Cricket Ireland. Although the weather in Ireland is somewhat threatening. We will discuss this in due course. Australia and New Zealand will also have a tour of Bangladesh.
