On the 100th anniversary of the father of Bangladesh Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the Cricket Board decided to organize a two-match T20 series in their country. Both these matches were to be played between Asia XI and World XI but on Wednesday it was decided to postpone it due to Corona virus.
To make this occasion special, the Bangladesh Cricket Board has put up a two-match T20 series between Asia XI and World XI. The team of Asia XI prepared by BCB includes the names of a total of 6 Indian players, of which one name has not been finalized yet.
The two-match series to be played in Bangladesh between World XI and Asia XI has been postponed. The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Wednesday made a difficult decision to postpone the series due to the threat of Corona virus. The match was to be played on 21 and 22 March.
Six Indian players, including captain Virat Kohli, were expected to join Asia XI but due to the postponement of the series, these players will no longer go to Bangladesh. According to the information, Indian opener KL Rahul would have been available to play one match while Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami were reported to play in both the matches. At the same time, there was no decision on the play of captain Virat Kohli.
The matches have been postponed, said Bangladesh Cricket Senior Media Manager Rabeed Imam. This is a step taken by the Bangladesh Cricket Board following a government directive. No decision has been made on the date of the new schedule so far. We will decide the date of the new program after looking at the situation.
