CA compensates BCB
Couple of days ago Cricket Australia cancelled hosting Bangladesh for two Tests and three ODIs in August-September this year as per the recently released Future Tours Program. It was for “financial reasons” apparently. The Bangladesh Cricket Board got upset for obvious reasons.
However in order to compensate the BCB, CA has offered hosting Bangladesh for a T20 series in the latter half of 2019. The series is meant to make preparations ahead of World T20 to be held in Australia in 2020.
Bangladesh has not visited Australia since 2003. This will be their first tour to the Down Under in about 15 years.
