The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is still to return to revised health guidelines, creating it tougher for the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to leave the nation for the tour scheduled on September 27.
The suspension of the journey means it would change the whole three-match Test series and may force the two boards to decrease the number of Test matches. The first Test match is scheduled for kick-off on October 24.
Bangladesh Cricket Board is also hopeful that the series will be held and in that case, if any adjustments are needed, they are ready to do it.
But the BCB high ups made it clear that both boards are dedicated to making the series happen since the three Tests are the part of the ICC Test Championship.
The BCB president Nazmul Hassan Papon had already made it clear that Bangladesh won’t stay mandatory 14-day quarantine after reaching Sri Lanka because such a long lay-off would affect their preparation. BCB instead wants a seven-day quarantine with practice facilities which the England Cricket Board (ECB) and IPL authority did while bringing the cricket back to the ground.
Sri Lanka really didn’t want to relax the health guidelines despite seeing the other boards like ECB and even the IPL authority relaxed the issue.
