Bangladesh set for a long break
Bangladesh is all set for a long break from international cricket after today's World Twenty20 match against Australia at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur.
As per the deal Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) president Nazmul Hassan Papon struck with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), India is supposed to come here in June to play three ODI matches against the Tigers.
But the scheduling of IPL and India's tour of England over June-September for five Tests, five ODIs and one T20I may shelve the tour. In that case Bangladesh will play their next international series in August when they travel to West Indies for two Tests, three ODIs and a T20I.
"There is a proposed tour by India here in June, but that is yet to be confirmed," said BCB's acting CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury.
"The ICC member countries will discuss the Future Tours Programme (FTP) during the two-day CEC meeting on April 5-6 here," he added.
