BCB aims at rescheduling suspended bilateral series

BCB aims at rescheduling suspended bilateral series

Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has been communicating with its counterpart boards of Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Ireland aiming at rescheduling their bilateral series which were suspended owing to worldwide devastating coronavirus pandemic.

The BCB has targeted Sri Lanka and Ireland and has been maintaining regular communications with Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and Cricket Ireland (IC) because they think that it will be easier comparatively for Bangladesh to convince them to reschedule their suspended series than Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan.

Bangladesh have a three-month blank slot (August –October) at hand before the November-December window which has internationally been allocated for their domestic T20 blockbuster cricket tournament of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

And so, they set a target to play at least one or two bilateral series within the vacant period prior to their cash-rich BPL for the 2020 season.

Meanwhile, BCB sent a package proposal to the SLC which is yet to give feedback.

BCB Director and its Cricket Operations Chairman Akram Khan admitted the matter of their package proposal to Sri Lanka, stating that everything depends on the response from Sri Lanka.

“Nothing is finalised yet. Everything was on the table and we have recently sent a package proposal but we did not receive any feedback from them.

Hopefully we will get it within the next four to five days,” Akram Khan said.

When asked him about the matters of the package proposal, Khan said, “We haven’t started our full-fledged practice yet. And so, we want to go there earlier in the tour. It may be at least 12 more days earlier so that our players could make their habituation with the conditions.”   

“Even we have proposed them to add a number of matches to the scheduled a Three-Test series. We want to play a string of matches on 50 overs and 20 overs alongside practice matches so that our players can step into the Test series playing those matches properly because players were away from cricket for so long due to COVID-19,” he added.

In addition, the BCB had planned to play a slew of international series at home and abroad prior to taking part in the flagship events like International Cricket Council (ICC) and Asian Cricket Council (ACC). But later BCB President Nazmul Hassan Papon said they are focusing more on ICC and ACC events rather than the bilateral series.
