Trying to reschedule England series after T20 World Cup, says BCB chief executive


ESPNcricinfo understands that the two boards favour rescheduling the series for late 2022 or early 2023

The England white-ball tour of Bangladesh has been postponed, but not cancelled altogether, the BCB has said, adding that talks were on to slot it after the T20 World Cup, which ends on November 14.

“Both the teams [Bangladesh and England] are playing a lot of cricket before the T20 World Cup, so we are discussing with the ECB whether the series can be hosted after the World Cup,” BCB chief executive Nizamuddin Chowdhury was quoted as saying by Bangladesh daily Prothom Alo on Tuesday.

Saying that the proposal to reschedule the series of three T20Is and three ODIs had come from the ECB, Chowdhury added: “If the series is pushed to after the T20 World Cup, we have to know when it can be hosted. If the two teams don’t have a gap in the calendar at the same time, we can hold it on the original dates.”
