It is not possible to visit Bangladesh in June: Tim Paine
Australia are scheduled to play two Tests in Bangladesh under the ICC World Test Championship this June. It is not certain whether that will happen now because of coronavirus. Australia’s Test captain Tim Paine has said in a nutshell that this series is unlikely to be happened.
The two-match Test series is scheduled to begin on June 11 in Chittagong. The second and last Test will be in Dhaka on June 19. “You don’t have to be Einstein to understand that it is not possible to visit Bangladesh in June,” said Paine.
However, he is not sure whether the series will be canceled or backed down.
“At this time, I am not sure whether it will be canceled or followed. But it’s only a few Test matches, if you have to miss it at the end of the day, so be it.”
Cricketers’ salaries can be cut off due to coronavirus issues. Cricket Australia is delaying the announcement of a central contract. Tim Paine has said that they are prepared for something like this, “Of course, negotiations to do something like this might start next week. So naturally you can delay our list announcement. If we have to do that like football and the rest of the game. Then of course we will. As the game survives, the years to come are in good shape.”
