Bangladesh Tour of Sri Lanka Postponed

Much-anticipated Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka gets postponed due to lack of preparation. 

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have mutually decided to postpone Bangladesh’s tour of Sri Lanka to a later date. This is mainly due to the fact that both cricket boards think that they are not ready enough to push through in July because of the problems brought upon by COVID-19. 

With the ongoing crisis of COVID-19, the BCB has also informed SLC that ‘a conducive environment has still not arrived for the players to take part in an international cricket series’. Aside from that, BCB cricket operations chairman Akram Khan has also admitted the low probability of the series being played in its original schedule. 

In a statement, Akram says, ‘We had spoken with some of the players and they did not show any interest (to tour during that point of time). I think chances are very slim about the Sri Lanka tour commencing on a scheduled time frame’. 

Aside from the lack of preparation, Bangladeshi cricketers Mashrafe Mortaza and Nafees Iqbal have also contracted the virus as the situation worsens in their country. 

Originally, the Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka which consists of three Test matches was supposed to be played on July. To further understand how Test matches are played, head over to Betwala.
