Sri Lanka Cricket has officially announced that they will tour Bangladesh for a three-match ODI series in May.
Sri Lanka Cricket is currently working on several match series for their national team. As a part of the World Cup Super League, Sri Lanka has confirmed that they will have a three-match series against Bangladesh. Meanwhile, the Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka remains to be postponed.
This has been confirmed by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) operation chairman Akram Khan. In an interview with the press in Chattogram, he said, ‘Sri Lanka team will come in May to play three ODIs that is part of WC Super League. We are expected to visit Sri Lanka earlier or later but the date is yet to be finalized’.
Despite having the Bangladesh tour of Sri Lanka postponed, Khan also explained that their two-match Test series against Sri Lanka will still push through. In fact, he explained that the negotiation for the match series in May only took place after their other series was delayed.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh is currently working on their upcoming tour of Zimbabwe which comprises two Tests, three ODIs, and three T20Is from June to July. Talking about this series, Khan says, ‘The Zimbabwe series is yet to be confirmed but we will confirm it shortly. We are thinking about rest for our cricketers as well because it is very difficult for them to play continuously while staying in bio-bubbles. It is a big pressure on them and we have to keep that in our mind. So we have to consider that before confirming any tour’.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s tour of West Indies remains to be in doubt after a few members of their team tested positive for COVID-19. Supposedly, they were to play two Tests, three ODIS, and three T20Is starting on February 20. To learn more about these cricket formats, check out Betwala.
