Bangladesh Cricket Board announces changes in the schedule of Afghanistan series

Originally Bangladesh was set to host a home series with Afghanistan which comprised 2 tests, 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is. But due to a tight schedule, Bangladesh Board decided to scrap one test. BCB cricket operation chairman Jalal Yunus told reporters that their schedule was very tight and that they want to concentrate more on white-ball cricket in preparation for the 50-over World Cup to be held in India later this year.

“We will play one Test along with T20Is and ODIs. There were two Tests but we have reduced it to one because our schedule is very tight (ahead of the next World Cup). We will play the other Test at some other time but for now we are just playing one Test,” Yunus told reporters on Sunday (April 30).
