Bangladesh tour of Ireland on brink of postponement
BCB Cricket Operations Committee Chairman Akram Khan said,”I said at first that we will never decide to endanger the cricketers. If it’s necessary then we will take a difficult decision on the tour of Ireland.
“This problem is not for just us, but for the whole world. So as per the situation, we are ready to do whatever we need to do.”
In the month of May, Bangladesh are scheduled to play three one day internationals in Ireland and then feature in four Twenty20 internationals which was scheduled to take place in Belfast Cricket Ground in England.
On circumstances of world wide coronavirus pandemic, Bangladesh cricket authorities are trying to rescheduling the proposed tour.
Akram Khan further said the board will not risk the health issue of cricketers, “Pakistan’s tour has already been postponed. Domestic cricket is also closed. Hope that the whole world will soon be able to get rid of this grave danger. But if the situation gets worse then we are ready to postpone any series. Because this is the security of the cricketers. We do not want to risk them in any way.”
