Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has announced that Australia’s Test and T20I tour is postponed. The Test series between the two teams is rescheduled to June-July 2020. It will form part of the inaugural 2019-21 ICC World Test Championship. 

‘According to the FTP, we were supposed to host two Tests in February but now the Test series will be played in June-July 2020’, BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan said.

Australia’s T20I tour of Bangladesh was originally scheduled to take place from October 2019. It will be rescheduled in 2021 before the eighth edition of the T20 World Cup which will take place in India. 

‘Initially we were expecting to host Australia for a two-match Twenty20 International series in October but now they have agreed to play three T20 internationals and it will be played ahead of the World T20 in India, though we are yet to finalise the date’, Akram added.

Bangladesh is set to play a Test series against India. They will also play three T20Is against the Men in Blue in their tour. The T20I series will commence on November 3 while the Tests will be held on November 14.

Meanwhile, Australia will also play a T20I series against the Sri Lanka Cricket Team. It will take place on October 27 at Adelaide. Currently, Bangladesh is taking part in the tri-series with Afghanistan and Zimbabwe. They are set to compete against Afghanistan today at Shere-Bangla Stadium in Dhaka.
