BCB looks to reschedule postponed Pakistan Test


Karachi: The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) is keen to reschedule the postponed Test against Pakistan along with its other Test series which were halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

BCB postponed five of its home and away series, which includes three Tests, while the series against Pakistan, included the second and final Test along with an ODI match.

The cancellation of the five series is affecting Tiger’s chances in the World Test Championship.

Nizamuddin Chowdhury, BCB CEO, while speaking to media said that the board is hopeful to reschedule the Test against Pakistan.

“You all know that we were forced to postpone four series [due to the pandemic], against Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, and Ireland. Other than that, we had a Test left to play with Pakistan. This [Test against Pakistan] can be rescheduled easily as it requires a small window. We will discuss that with PCB,” he said.

It must be noted that Bangladesh called off a tour to Ireland while Australia’s tour to Bangladesh was also postponed. The Bangladeshi side was then supposed to tour Sri Lanka in July, however, the series was also called off and they will now play in October.
