Mickey Arthur disappointed after SLvBANG series called off over quarantine rules


Karachi: Sri Lanka’s head coach Mickey Arthur has expressed his frustration after Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan said that they are not touring Sri Lanka.

Mickey took to twitter and wrote “Incredibly disappointing news” after the series got called off due to Covid-19 quarantine protocols.

The three-match Test series, originally planned for July-August, was rescheduled for October-November due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said the series, which is part of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship, would be rescheduled.

It must be noted that Sri Lanka’s mandatory 14-day quarantine period played a major part in the postponement of the series.
