Bangladesh Vs Sri Lanka Test and T20 Series 2020 Live Streaming, BAN Vs SL
Finally, the Bangladesh cricket team is going on a long-awaited tour of Sri Lanka, putting an end to all speculations. A huge fleet of 50 people will take part in this tour. The Bangladesh Vs Sri Lanka test and T20 series 2020 live streaming will start from September 23 this year.
Apart from the Bangladesh national cricket team and HP team, this fleet will have coaches and other staffers. That is why the Bangladesh team will travel to the island country on a charter flight. The Tigers will take part in a three-match Test series against hosts Sri Lanka during the tour.
The series will be held as part of the ICC World Test Championship. A three-match T20 series between the two teams is also likely to be held during the tour. However, it has not been finalized yet.
On the other hand, the HP team will play two three-day matches and five one-day matches against the hosts. A meeting of the BCB was held at the Home of Cricket in Mirpur today to discuss the beginning and end of the upcoming tour.
The meeting was attended by BCB director and HP chief MP Naimur Rahman Durjoy, cricket operations chairman Akram Khan, chief selector Minhazul Abedin Nannu, selector Habibul Bashar Sumon and chief executive officer (CEO) Nizamuddin Chowdhury, among others.
Later, Durjoy told reporters, “On September 23, the national and HP teams will leave Bangladesh for Sri Lanka together.”
Not all cricketers will be tested twice before leaving the country. Those identified as positive will be dropped from the squad. The national and HP team camps may start on September 10.
“It’s great for us to be able to play a three-match Test series on any tour,” he said. But the fear for us is that we have not been able to play any cricket for the last five or six months. We have a plan for this. I hope to implement it properly. Every effort will be made for the team.
Akram further said that the BCB will bear the expenses of the HP team at the beginning of the tour of Sri Lanka. However, when they start their game, the host country will bear all their expenses. At the end of the tour of Sri Lanka, both the national and HP teams will return to the country together.
According to the ICC’s Future Tour Program (FTP), Bangladesh was scheduled to tour Sri Lanka in July this year to play a three-match Test series. Which is part of the ICC Test Championship? However, the cricket boards of the two countries were forced to suspend it due to Corona.
With a three-match Test series between England and the West Indies returning to international cricket in Corona, other cricket boards are hoping for a bilateral series. The cricket boards of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are planning to resume the suspended Test series.
There are plans to add a three-match T20 series to the three-match Test series. Though not everything has been officially announced yet, Sri Lanka Cricket Board Chief De Silva said Bangladesh could visit Sri Lanka on September 24. Adding three T20s with three Tests is also being discussed.
He told Dhaka-based TV channel Mashranga, ‘Bangladesh will leave the country on September 24, it is almost certain. The itinerary is fairly certain, but it will take us a few days to finalize it. We are actually still discussing. BCB wants to play three T20s with three Tests. We actually want to play one Test less, then talk about playing T20. We will be able to finalize it in 2-1 days.
