We’re not thinking about Sri Lanka tour: BCB
The coronavirus situation is relatively better in Sri Lanka. Coronavirus infection intensity is lower than in India and Bangladesh. The number of coronavirus cases is not very high, and the number of deaths is low. So the Sri Lankan board is very enthusiastic about organizing the series against India and Bangladesh.
SLC is looking forward to hosting the World Test Championship against Bangladesh. However, there is new news about the series. For the first time, Sri Lanka is worried because of the increase in coronavirus infection in Bangladesh. They have started thinking that Bangladesh may not come.
The Sri Lankan board has also decided what they can do if Bangladesh does not play a three-match Test series. At that time, they have expressed their desire to host the domestic T20 tournament Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL). News of the Lankan board’s alternative thinking has already hit the media.
However, SLC did not say that Bangladesh had announced about the postponement of the series. Top news sources and the BCB’s most reliable sources have confirmed that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has not yet made a final decision on the tour of Sri Lanka.
So what is the future of that tour or Test series? Cricket fans have a doubt about that. The incidence of coronavirus has increased considerably in Bangladesh. The number of victims and deaths is also increasing day by day. Everyone is passing the time through extreme anxiety. Will the cricketers have the mental strength to go abroad to play? That too is a matter of scrutiny.
What will BCB do now? Will Bangladesh national team really go to Sri Lanka? However, Akram Khan, chairman of the board’s cricket operations committee has confirmed that BCB has no plans to visit Sri Lanka at the moment.
“We’re not thinking about Sri Lanka tour. We are just giving the opportunity to the cricketers to train in a little open field who have been locked at home for a long time. It has no connection with Sri Lanka tour. I have already said that it is not possible for us to play a Test series without adequate preparation,” Akram said.
