Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been considering the tour of Sri Lanka in the month of April next year. BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury confirmed the news on Monday saying they are considering the two-match Test series against Sri Lanka.
The two-match Test series between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh was called off in October this year due to the mandatory quarantine policy imposed by the Health Ministry of the island nation.
Both the boards had mutually postponed the series then and Bangladesh went on to commence its domestic cricket to resume the game in the country. But now both the boards are working together to find the possibilities of a short series. The series will most likely consist of a two-match Test series, followed by some white-ball action.
Bangladesh was originally due to tour Sri Lanka in July 2021, but the COVID-19 wave had taken the globe at its peak strain that time.
“We are trying to see if we can play two-match Test series as that is the minimum requirement of ICC Test Championship in April,” Chowdhury told Cricbuzz.
“You have to understand that there are quarantine issues and all those things take time so we are planning in this manner. If there is space we will add a few shorter formats but everything depends on available time and space,” he added.
Currently, Bangladesh is slated to begin its international cricket campaign with their upcoming series against West Indies at home starting January 20.
