Bangladesh change European tour itinerary
The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has come up with new proposal for Ireland to play five T20 internationals instead of the earlier planned five ODIs, keeping in mind the Tigers' preparation for the ICC World T20 in Sri Lanka in September.
The BCB's media committee chairman Jalal Yunus revealed this change of plan yesterday after the emergency meeting of the board of directors at the BCB headquarters in Mirpur.
“We are interested to play T20 series instead of one-day series right at this moment, so we will ask them (Cricket Ireland) whether it will be possible for them to arrange. It's not possible to play the one-day series before the ICC Twenty20 World Club, so we will play the series at a convenient time after the World Cup if they don't agree to host the T20 series,” said Yunus.
The proposal will see Ireland play 3 of the 5 scheduled T20's with Scotland and The Netherlands playing the other two in Scotland.
The five games are likely to take place in late July.
