Bangladesh confirm Sri Lanka Test tour in April


Bangladesh Cricket Board have confirmed that the postponed two-Test series in Sri Lanka will finally be played in April. Cricbuzz had reported that BCB restarted negotiations with Sri Lanka Cricket about their postponed tour from last year and as per the latest developments, the two boards have agreed to play the series in April at one venue, although they are yet to disclose where and finalise the dates of the series.

However, Bangladesh are expected to travel to the island nation between April 12-15, which is in the middle of the Indian Premier League and as a result, miss their star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman, who will also be given the NOC.

"We are in talks with the Sri Lanka board and till now the two matches of the Test Championship are finalized," BCB chief executive Nizamuddin said on Saturday (February 20).

"Both the matches will be played at the same venue and we are expecting to travel to Sri Lanka by April 12-15," he added.

Nizamuddin added that they are assured that the COVID-19 protocols, that was maintained by SLC during the home series against England, will be in place when Bangladesh visit, too.

"As we know the COVID-19 situation in Sri Lanka improved from the past. In the meantime, England toured Sri Lanka and we were informed that we have to maintain the same protocol that was in place for the series against England," he said.

Bangladesh were initially scheduled to play three Tests in July 2020, which was subsequently consumed by the pandemic. The tour was rescheduled with the first Test to be played from October 24, but BCB thereon asked SLC to reschedule the tour as they were not willing to comply with the 14-day quarantine then mandated by the home board.
